- My uncle's name was Paul, he had three sons, my cousins. I used to visit them in Washington DC. I never met my uncle's wife, but the name Thelma Minnick sure rings a bell. Where are you located now and what is your first name? I was named after both of my grandfathers; Samuel August.

Wow! We are cousins. Paul was a great guy. I was indentured to him as a bricklayer, but Florida and boating kept tugging at me. Paul was also a great artist. I have many memories of Paul. I was discharged from the army in 1953. If you go to my site, www.bogwig.com and fill in the contact form, when I receive the form, I will send you an email. We can chat in private. And not take up space on the forum.

I too knew John Minnick from his days at Tabby's Glass. I lived across the street and would hang out there at times. I guess I never knew that Tabby was his uncle though. I believed that John had family up near Brookville where I also have relatives.

Seeing that it has been a while since anyone posted on this forum sort of proves that people like to post "off Topic" on these forums. If there is no topic, they don't know what to write, because they like going off topic to prove a point. Interesting.

John was always good for a laugh and of good spirits.. He went to work for "Tabbys" after he came home. He had a sister Goldie Spiers that lived in Lower Burrell.. She was active with the local Democratic Committee and served on the Burrell School Committee for years. Her husband John was in construction business........ Any help?

Hey KenHi61,
while I'm down here, I'll slide up to Palm Beach County this week and talk to a few contacts. Who knows when you might need them.

I'll give your regards to Donald.

I just checked the entire list for New Kensington Forums. There are quite a few subjects listed. the one with the most comments was the one "Who Do You Support for the Governor Race?" started in Oct. 11th 2010. The next highest comments was the RNKNL, started in August 4, 2007; the first and oldest on the block. For a long time it was interesting. Then it fell in the bucket.
Then I noticed that there are many dead ones and I noticed that the names of the last ones to post, are pretty much the same names. These names do not appear too much on the biggest forum, and there are many different names on that forum. Some heavy arguments on it. I wouldn't waste my time on it, but it does attract a lot of posters. Very opinionated, I might add, and usually off topic.
II started one about health and leaf blowers, that no one responded to - guess we don't care about our health,or maybe you don't have them back east, like we do here on the West Coast. They should be banned because of the health hazards.
The other one I started was about music and the big bands from the forties and the fifties. It got 81 comments before it died. It died on a good note.
I went on one forum, with an unknown name, that was dead. His comment was right on and very funny. But it was too much for the weak minded. No more comments were needed.
What are the motives of posters? Something to take a moment and think about.

Sam, RNKNL did not fall into the "Bucket". Still alive and kicking. There are those who have tried to push it, throw it etc into the bucket but not yet.....

Many interesting posts or posts thought to be interesting by the originating poster got no response. Thats good. No interest, nothing to add, no info to share, don't respond..... If you have an intrest, respond in kind.......

Do you think that is what G. Mannerino had in mind when she srarted RNKNL...

- That was started Oct. 11th 2010. I don't know what I was thinking the day before yesterday. I don't think I would know what she was thinking. Had to do something with the Night life in New Kensington in the good old days. A great topic.

Sam, If you add together all the "RNKNL Wannabees" you would have over 2500 toatal. RNKNL, Memories of NK and Area, Chuckie Speaks etc......
It seems some had a better idea along with trying to restrict comment.

Yes, some have even gone so far as to preface their posts with "No comment needed" or the like.

The whole idea of posting on here is to hear yourself talk - and then, to hear what people comment, on what you said. Very devastating to the ego when no one comments. Some go where they get responses and others just go. Personally I like the interchange when it is about memories. Those comments bring back other memories. That is what got me hooked to these threads. I strayed when people started making off topic comments, I dabbled and baited on some other threads, now, I only look at the memory forums. I quit wasting my time. No one really listens - they have their own ingrained ideas and they are stuck in that mode. Life is too short for anything but good feelings..

I also like the interchange when its about memories. However, there are three of us whose interchange is thwarted by name-calling and derision - Olderndirt, Jayme and myself. And at this point, there are two main perpetrators of that mischief.
Some may think that if Dirt, Jayme and myself would just go away, they could get back to enjoying this forum. But history has shown that, if we were to depart, a new victim or victims would come under the abuse of Chuckie and Floyd. That is the reality of the situation, as shown by their past treatment here of anyone who dares to disagree with them.
So, we stay and continue to fight, and unfortunately the rest of you are subject to the unpleasant discourse. Or - you could all join in and boo them off the stage and bring about a return to civility.

Out of one side of your mouth you say we are the Victems,and only want to return to civility.And out of the other side of your mouth,at the same time,you call for help,to boo us off the thread.So you can be in charge.All the disourse come out of your mouth.HAGAAA,And that thing you are craving,is to be in charge.Not as long as I`m around,you power hungry pig.
