A very belated happy birthday to Tyler Montgomery, who turned age 11 Aug. 23, love Mom and Dad.

I would like to make a correction to the answer to a previous column's trivia questions on two funeral homes in Dawson. The Ralph E. Galley Funeral home remains. The other funeral parlor was not the Robert Galley Funeral Home, but Robert Landymore Funeral Home. Sorry about the typing error.

Two people called with the answer to last week's trivia question: "Where was the L.J. Peterson Funeral Home located?" Barb Wilhelm and Duane Christner knew the answer. It was located near the Graft Custom Exhaust Shop in Dawson, however, there was also a parlor on Middle Street in Dickerson Run, between Liberty and Vanderbilt.

This week's question: Where in the Tri-Town area was a state liquor store located in the 1950s and early 1960s• If you know, call me at 724-529-7461 or write me at 276 Banning Road, Dawson, PA 15428-1175. If you e-mailed a reply, I am sorry my computer is out for repairs. It will be back online and running soon, so you will be able to e-mail me at

Until next time, keep smiling and have a great week.
