The night the stars fell on Mt. Pleasant

HONESDALE, PA — “Stars Fell on Alabama” is the title of a 1934 jazz standard, composed by Frank Perkins with lyrics by Mitchell Parish, that has nothing at all to do with Mt. Pleasant, other than the image that the story of the Bigelow Meteorite invokes.

The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES), comprised of trained and qualified Amateur Radio (HAM) operators, aims to be an effective partner in emergency and disaster response. Hank Grilk is the emergency coordinator who represents 130 Wayne HAM operators. Grilk came to commissioners on March 28, seeking their support in formalizing an ARES unit in conjunction with the PA Emergency Management Agency. Commissioner Wendell Kay thanked Grilk for his efforts and promised “we’ll be back to you as soon as possible.”

On March 28, Wayne County Commissioners’ Chief Clerk Vicky Botjer announced that she had received email confirmation of grant funding that would cover construction costs.
