Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. To honor Dr. King’s legacy, PNC is debuting 12 oral histories of prominent African Americans in western Pennsylvania.
Rob Pratte hosted Black and Gold Sunday at Kuhn’s Market with guests John Miller, Jim Colony, Krista Voda, Swin Cash and Ted Arneault.
Twenty-seven-year-old Cassidy Krug, the most decorated diver in Montour High School history and a national champion at Stanford, fell just short in her quest to pick up an Olympic medal in the women’s three-meter springboard competition.
We recently profiled a number of local Olympians, but since the opening ceremonies in London, another youngster with WPIAL ties has flown–or, to be more specific, swam–under our radar.
Every once in a while we get a kick out of seeing what WPIAL alumni are up to, and starting this weekend the entire world will get to share in the celebration of western Pennsylvania’s proud athletic heritage.
