A local woman, Laura Magone, has composed a great documentary highlighting the successful people of just ONE street in Monongahela. It really shows off how much of a 'diamond in the rough' this town is. It features the past residents of Park Avenue in Monongahela and what they have done with thier lives. These great people include....

the inventor of the NERF football,
a Green Bay Packer,
a famous writer,
a carciothoracic surgeon,
one of the best trial lawyers in California, two grocery store owners,
Joe Montana,
the founder of the Disney Channel,
and many many more.
ALL FROM MONONGAHELA!!

This is such a great story.

'St. Anthony's playground', just because they couldn't wait to get off of park avenue doesn't mean that they aren't successful. And I never said these people were 'great', I just meant to show that you can make something of yourself no matter WHERE you come from. And thank you, 'Monongahela proud'.

I don't see the big deal about this documentary.The real story should be about the people that raised these individuals.

The people that raised them didn't make them successful. After about 18, kids are left on thier own. It was these people's OWN work ethic and OWN goals that got them where they are. Sure, they probably had help along the way. But what kind of story would that be? Probably none of them are alive, and thier childhoods were in a day without camera's or any kind of recording devices. That's a newspaper clipping story, not documentary material.

I'm not trying to belittle it, because I honestly understand all that they did to provide for thier families. I used to bring a tape recorder to my great aunt's house when I was little and listen to her telling me stories for HOURS. I have probably about 12 or 15 hours of tape about 'the old days'. She quit school when she was in 8th grade to help with her family, and it amazes me how strong these people were. I'm simply stating that many of these people, including my aunt, aren't with us anymore and it would be hard to do an entire documentary on them.

There is nothing extraordinary about park ave except for the amount of potholes.

So I guess you don't consider a famous author, a man voted the best lawyer in the state of California, the founder of the Disney channel, and the inventor of probably one of the most played-with childrens toys, extraordinary? Coming out of a no-name town, I think thats incredible. These people have done more than most Monongahelians dream of doing. They deserve credit.

WOW. Seriously, Morongahela. You weren't even involved in this particular topic, and you're "ignoring" people?? That's absolutely ridiculous. And I didn't even do anything to be 'ignored'. Monongahela doesn't need any more mean spirited people in this town. So if your sole purpose on this forum is to post argumentative things just for the sake of doing it, then get out. And while you're at it, find a nice home in Monessen or Donora. They're much better than this town, right?
You're absolutely ridiculous. I'm done with this forum. You have no conversation, just immature arguments. As I said, I'm finished here. Goodbye.

Unfortunately, most people that post on this site from the area seem much more comfortable discussing a topic when it pertains to the bad side of things. Let's face it..everyone likes to bitch about something one time or another...Then you have the ones' that bitch all the time and are truly not happy with themselves so how can they be happy for anybody else!
