A WORD FROM THE EDITOR
This may be a little belated to some of you who may have already visited this site, but I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Jack Moore for taking time to create this webpage for Star readers and fans.
I know that some of you no longer live in Fishtown, but if you are like me, a true Fishtowner, your heart is here. And you probably grew up on the Penn Treaty Gazette, which is now known as The Star.
This site will be touch and go for awhile, as I try to give you the right combination of news you may be looking for. Knowing that some of you do live in the area, I will include upcoming events. I will post reunions for North, Hallahan and other schools that I get. And we'll just give you as much news from the 'hood as we can.
And now that you have access to the news, you can help make it. If you want to send a greeting to someone, just email it to me. Please make sure to sign your real name and phone number to your email. For example, want to surprise your best friend with a birthday greeting in the Star, even though you live in Florida? Just email; you obviously have email because you are visiting this site.
Another idea I have always wanted to launch is "Where are they now?" What better time? Let me know who you are, where you grew up, where you went to school, what you are doing now. I can "interview" you further through email. And we can start this feature, which we can run on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, there is no way we can reprint the entire Star every week. And occasionally, some things Jack will post on the Star page may not have made the paper because there was lack of space. But if I think you may be interested (reunions are a good example), I will post the items on the site.
As we go along, any feedback you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Just remember, Jack is doing this because he is, as someone recently said, "Mr. Fishtown." And he and I are doing all this in our spare time. So bear with us as we work out the kinks.
I look forward to 'chatting' with you each week.
Oh Yes There Is Other News In The World
