Jim Gurcsik does an amazing job with the students at Schuylkill Technology South. The restaurant is open to the public and 100% run by the students. And they’re not just making your rinky dink menu. They have everything from Curry Alfredo Pasta to Oysters Rockefeller.
Even though I’m Italian I can appreciate some good pork & sauerkraut. I picked up three. One from Yorkville Hose in Pottsville, another from Schuylkill Hose #2 in Haven, and the last one from Good Will in Minersville.
All three were excellent, but I could only choose one winner. No bias at all as it was done as a blind taste test (as the title of the post tells you)
Kenneth Kline is my neighbor. I had zero idea of the coaching legend that he was in the Coal Region. He led Jim Thorpe to a state championship in the 60s, and lost a second one on a half court buzzer beater.
He then came to Pottsville where he accumulated over 200 wins, and was a shop teacher.
A great neighbor, and it seems like an even better coach.
October is pretty much the best month of the year.
Today we can easily take care of the last one for you with an interview with Diana from the Schuylkill County Historical Society giving us all the details on the Haunted Walking tours starting this Friday.
George Forney carried the Nativity Golden Girls basketball torch for quite some time, including winning 2 state titles as a head coach, and being a part of 7. Today, we discuss his career, and, perhaps, most importantly, his niche skill of being able to deliver a perfect volley serve with his foot.
