  1. If you buy the good beef hot dogs (not frankfurters) like Ball Park in either regular or bun length there is only 8 in a pack and has been for years. No extra buns. 😁
  2. How many tax dollars are spent subsidizing lazy ass people who don’t want to work?
  3. BS, not all electricity is produced in coal burning electric plants, electric vehicles still pay the tax on registration renewal, state inspection, tire tax, etc which are all supposed to be used for maintaining the highways. No I don’t currently own an electric vehicle but like it or not it is the future.
  4. The Hotel Emery is long gone along with most all historic buildings in Falls Creek. ...With the construction of a two-story brick store and residence built by Mr. J. L. Reed to spur grown, other homes quickly followed and the town was named Evergreen. A large, four-story hotel, the Lamontague, was erected at the corner of Main and First Streets and provided porches with easy seats from which to view the crowded streets each night. Until it burned down nearly a dozen years later, the Lamontague was the center of activity for the community. Two other hotels served the town during its boom da
  5. I remember Buzz doing odd jobs for people when I was a young lad. He once hand dug a ditch for a neighbor probably 50 feet long and 3 feet deep for a water line from the house to the curb with a pick and spade. He was a very strong and dirty looking older man. I distinctly remember the brown pants he had on and for some reason the front pockets were cut out exposing his dirty looking legs. Now being fair he was no threat and I remember him being kind and a hard working man just making money doing manual labor to live on. My mother who use to feed the bums that hung around the old B & O sh
  6. I have been doing a lot of sorting through stuff at my late in-laws house since their passing last month and ran across these interesting copies of pictures and a newspaper article. Downtown Falls Creek with a dirt Main Street and a LOT of buildings. The Falls Creek Tannery workers and dried hides. Bringing the old smokestack down at the Tannery. It took 45 sticks of dynamite to bring the 150 foot tall stack with walls of 4 feet 9 inch thick at the base down.

MMMMMMMMM...SOOOOOOOO DELICIOUS!!! Big, red, juicey, and taste like a tomatoe should...doesn't get much better than that!:exc:
  8. When out sweeping anti-skid from the yard after work I noticed my tulips poking out about 1"...and there are 60's in the forecast next week I seen on channel 6 news tonight...ABOUT TIME!!!
  9. When I was a kid Merritt Edner's was right across the street from where Frank's is. The building they were in is right beside the road that goes along the tracks back to now, Giant Eagle. I remember going there with my Dad to get his tax return done.
  10. Found this about the DuBois Brewery searching for something else...very interesting. The Brewery There seems to be some debate as to exactly when Frank Hahne came to DuBois and broke ground on his own facility. One source claims 1898, another 1897. It seems most likely that this occurred between April and the end of 1896. It was on April 16, 1896, that the DuBois Weekly Courier reported: "Some new developments in connection with the brewery may be looked for in the near future." There were a number of reasons Hahne chose the DuBois site for his facility, but the most frequently cited
