Veteran Walkers of Northwester Pennsylvania

A tip of the hat to those who walked about 11 miles as the Veteran Walkers of Northwestern Pennsylvania were hoping to spread awareness about suicide in servicemen and women. The 10 walkers, many with flags, marched from the Corry American Legion to Union City American Legion. At the UC legion, their drinks and meals were covered and they had people giving monetary donations that will go to the 9 Line Project. They are planning another walk in June 2020, from Cambridge Springs to Splash Lagoon in Erie.

Last Saturday, Corry grad Garrett Zajac had a hole-in-one golfing at Whispering Woods in Erie. He was playing in a two-man scramble with Dylan Silvis. It was on the 167-yard second hole and he hit a 9 iron.

The annual Shudder Mudder Run is this Sunday at Mead Park running from 2-5 p.m.

The girls basketball team is holding a bingo fundraiser today at the Moose Club from 5-8 p.m.

This Saturday is a special 60th birthday for Clymer longtime teacher, coach and scorekeeper Lynne Bemis. Glad she's getting around better.

Belated birthday wishes to Sydney Beal who is now 20. And to Dave Sample, who is older than that.

Celebrating tomorrow are Moose Dunnewold and Tim Zojonc, Reva Lowry on Friday.

Sympathy wishes to the family and friends of Richard "Dick" Smith.

For years, I used to go through Sugar Grove on my way to cover events at Eisenhower High School. On my way to Corry's soccer match at Ike on Monday, I was surprised to see that the downtown bank has now become the Beer Bank - yes, a beer distributor.

Prayers go out to Curt Utegg.

Retired state trooper Brian Fronk sure has been busy. He worked as an extra on two TV shows filming in Pittsburgh. He was a state trooper, construction worker and national guard soldier on Manhunt Loan Wolf. He played a parent on "I Am Not Okay With This." He also found time to work as a security guard at Camp Stone.

Longtime 49er fan Ralph Amoroso must be smiling from ear to ear after that drubbing his team put on the Browns on Monday night. Bills fans are smiling a lot, too.

Thursday at North Hills Golf Course, it's Pete Clute followed by Jim Kozel, then the Montauk Boys. Pete is from the Elgin Road shows and Jim is a songwriter singer, guitarist and luthier from Cleveland.
