  1. Past hour
  2. Clark had a plant in Pittsburgh. I believe Clark was their own.
  3. Were Clark and Zero Hersheys products? We love Hersheys down here, they just have much better offerings than those two
  4. My daughter started college this year and wants to be a vet so i cant imagine what the total bill will be. Luckily she has a trust fund for the first 4 years. My grandfather set that up for all the grandkids. We also have been saving for both kids for college since they were born but im sure she will still owe.
  5. Not when you have had at one time over history the 2 largest candy makers Hershey and Boyer in our region.
  6. Today
  7. This thread has been really interesting for me. I've always wondered who ate those candies I always saw that I didn't consider "sweet" and didn't like. Yankees Seriously, though, it has to be a regional thing. I saw the candies you guys are mentioning, always at the end of the row, covered in dust and 5 years old because no one bought them. Y'all are talking about hard candy I would consider tart, pixie sticks which are the same, and candy bars and mallo cups with little to no caramel. Not sweet enough. I can't think of a single candy bar I liked that didn't have a significant amount of caramel in it; Snickers, Milky Way, Twix, even Rollos. I've noticed before that a lot of southern BBQ is sweet. I guess it is a regional thing.
  8. I practically lived at Gillings Drug Store. And he had that old ice cream bar freezer with the sliding glass door.
  9. They still make them.... https://pearsonscandy.com/bun/
  10. IMO these high schools/guidance counselors need to start pushing trade schools and the various trades apprenticeship programs as hard as they push college. Name me one college/college degree that gives you a job, pays you, and gives you full benefits while you're going to school and when you graduate go right into a position that can pay $100k+/year plus benefits?
  11. Gillings in Brockway was the same way. We used to walk there after Sunday School for our penny candy fix.
  12. For the older Valley Rats among is------- Morellis store on the corner of 255 and 153. No people, there was not a light at the intersection back in the day. They had a long curved glass candy counter on the right as you came in the front door. It was full of all kinds of candy. You could take a dollar in there and walk out with enough candy to make your jaw sore and your belly ache. Damn, life used to be great.
  13. Was reading a Yahoo News article. Colleges are a joke. It was amazing to see the amount of colleges that dont even graduate 40% of their students in 5 years. But yet the are in debt big time. And of course default rates are around 20%.(19.2%). Wonder how many were in nonsense majors and found out too late. The average graduate rate is 59%.
  14. I agree with your last sentence. We cancelled the courier in March. The only thing its been good for is to start camp fires.

  19. I have discussed it with D9 officials. They were going to "look in to it". I would keep an eye specifically on one program as they are the ones that put DCC on probation. It's not ironic that it happened.
  20. Then why didn't you personally report the coach to the school & D9. The coaches I know at DCC, which is nearly all of them, are not that dumb.
  21. Nothing I said was critical of the player.
  22. OOHHHH Bun candy bars, forgot about those......thanks now I want one and they don't make them
  23. ZERO bar , still is.Can only find them at the dollar store. Also chunky and nestles crunch.
  24. I just think this generation was brought up mostly with not an emphasis on sports. They were brought up to be individualists. And you are correct with Fall Sports season. I remember when girls basketball was the only sport in the FALL. Volleyball was considered a Spring sport back in my day. In the spring it was Girls Volleyball, golf or tennis. And the teams were filled .
  25. I would beg to differ this statement as I have personally witnessed coaches approach kids and talk to them about transferring to DCC. Some went, and some didn't. If that's not recruiting, then I don't know what is.
  26. You used to be able to buy both red and purple. Blair Candy Company brought back a purple swedish fish a few years ago but they don't taste the same as the original. If you even buy the bags of swedish "aquatic life" they will have purple ones in there, but even these bags are harder and harder to find. Sour Patch Kids are my roadtrip candy of choice.
  27. I think its a combination of both schools having a couple of grades with smaller than normal class sizes, the demand for athletes during a busy fall sports seasons (lots of sports choices), and not as many kids participating in football in general due to concussion/injury concerns. I believe it was this year that DCC was concerned if they would have enough girls for a soccer team. Brockway will face the same concerns next year. It was up in the air this year if DCC would have enough for a junior high soccer team or not (they did). Less kids, both male and female, are participating in school sponsored sports. Travel team burnout? Less interest? I don't know what the cause is, but it's sad to see.
