During the mid 1960's, G. Earl Stevenson, a Pottsville City Councilman and Director of Parks and Public Property, went to St. Paul, Minnesota on business. While he was in St. Paul, he attended the St. Paul Winter Carnival. At that time, the St. Paul Winter Carnival was in existence for over 100 years. There, the Winter Carnival was held every year at the end of January and continued through the beginning of February hosting over 100 events for all to enjoy and participate. St. Paul Winter Carnival had a paid staff including a Public Relations Department, advertising and marketing Department, as well as numerous sales representatives. Mr. Stevenson was so intrigued by this undertaking in St. Paul that when he returned to Pottsville he presented the idea to the Pottsville Recreation Commi...

The money — a chunk of $88.1 million allocated to Pennsylvania — is provided through the 2008 Housing and Economic Recovery Act and meant...

Lew Achenbach and Lance Rautzhan-both Schuylkill County native artist- will show new art work at the SCCA Galleries this Sunday, November 9th, 2008. Meet the artists reception is from 2pm-4pm. Achenbach & Rautzhan have a non representational painting style that will excite your imagination.   Lew Achenbach: "The act of painting is a dialogue that I have with the surface; a call and response. The process is facilitating the work to unfold into it’s proper form. It starts as a solid automatic writing pocket of actuality. A memory, a channeled expulsion, a tug at purity and singularity. Currently, I try ‘not’ to paint in a representational way. Attempting to harness an essence of (non) subject. The high challenge is to maintain the honesty of the initial mark-making, as the work proceeds. ...

Was there anything that did not feel just right, like maybe someone watching you, or someone near by that you could feel but not see? We are aware of many strange and frightening stories in that area, but WHAT about the many things we do not know. As Halloween nears, rumor has it that a frightening group is planning to make an appearance at the theater…a group that does not get out very often, a group that is no longer part of the living. Come out, if you are brave, and pay the theater a visit. Entrance price will be $3 and children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Be of ...

I gotta give it to Active Rain, its pulse on Google has seemed to transform into various other media forms.  I've read many a post here on how fellow Mortgage Professionals have been contacted by newspapers, television, magazines, etc... because someone came across their blog here on Active Rain. A couple of weeks back, I got an email from Erica Ramus, a broker with Realty Executives in Pottsville, Pa.  She had given my number to a reporter for the Republican & Herald, a newspaper also out of Pottsville, Pennsylvania.  They were to run a story on the mortgage mess and wanted to get some insight from local Real Estate Professionals. The story ran on the 27th of September and is actually a pretty good article.  It's a pretty in depth look and analysis of what is going on in the Mortgage a...
