Gary Church: Here are 10 (printable) things you should know about me
There’s a fun thing going around on Facebook: someone tags you to reveal 10 things about yourself. I've waited and waited, but not one of my 500 friends have asked me to join in. Should anyone ever ask, I have prepared a list of unknown facts about yours truly, that should end up in the Smithsonian Institute.
Lisa Madras: Thankful for opportunities to say thanks
Do you celebrate the things you do have? A few weeks ago I asked you if you ever celebrated the green lights. I guess this is pretty close to the same question, but since it's Thanksgiving week, I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask again.
Josh Drespling: Daily commute becomes soundtrack to my life
In the acquisition of my new job, I also acquired a 55-minute commute. Every morning, I drive from our secluded home in the boondocks outside of New Castle to the great metropolis of Pittsburgh. I pass Heinz Field, the Carnegie Science Center, The Rivers Casino, and the home of our beloved Pirates, PNC Park.
Gary Church: Flop with a cop — I guess I’ll see you next fall, Bob!
In case you have never seen them, I usually appear in the New Castle News Light Up Night videos. This year I had my own personal videographer, Amanda King, hang out with me, for most of the evening. She is young and talented, and nice to work with.

Why do you play? Success is not an accident. You know that, right? No one crashes into a wall and wins the race. The guy on top of the mountain didn’t fall there. He climbed. You don’t buy the gold medals they slip on you at the Palumbo Center. You earn them.
The Couch Potato: Make a decision to watch ‘Boardwalk Empire’
I read something the other day that struck me as extremely poignant. The writer said that they hated when they knew there was a situation that was beyond their control.
Gary Church: I can see clearly now the pain has gone
If you find a lot of typographical errors in this blog, I have an excuse. I just came from the eye doctor, and my vision is very blury. I mean blurry. See?
Lisa Madras: Well, what do you know! Here’s what I’ve learned through the years
What life lessons did you have to experience firsthand before you fully understood them? I could easily make a list of the lessons life has taught me. But hey, why just say it when I can do it?! I could probably get to 100, but I know by 20 you'll be sucked into that car ad at the side of the page, so I'll do us both a favor and stop there.
Josh Drespling: Merry ... what? It’s still NOVEMBER!
It's only the second week of November, folks. It was not long ago that we were basking in the sweltering summer sun, mowing our lawns, and lounging poolside. It seems as though once school was back in session, the leaves began to fall and we started a dramatic tumble into winter.
Gary Church: Here’s a tall tale that weighs heavily on me
I'm at the age where my body is starting to go down hill a bit. One thing that is still in good working condition is my ability to gain weight. For that reason, I recently had to break down and purchase a few shirts that I could actually button.
