DESTINATION: LIGONIER (PA)

Sally Shirey

     It is difficult to trace the growth of the hospitality industry in the Ligonier Valley without noting the attendant development of transportation across the region as well.

     The Ligonier Valley was the first stopping place west of the Allegheny Mountains for settlers seeking new lives after the defeat of the French in 1758.  Those earliest pioneers followed the primitive Forbes Road, rough and barely wide enough for their wagons.  Settlements and towns first developed near (more…)

From her concealment, I take her measure:

Compliant one she is—I bind her hands.

Her only purpose becomes my pleasure;

willing, waiting, she thrives on my commands.

The prompt contained three questions. First, Where were you when you heard about the events of September 11, 2001? Second, how did you hear? Third, how did you feel?

While waiting for the meeting to start, I presented the same questions to other Coffe Bean Cafe patrons. Their answers can be found at

      Change is not always easy for everyone, but I manage to land on my feet like a cat. Richard and I got married the same day we graduated from Princeton University, he with a Law degree and I with an Education degree. We honeymooned our way across the United States in a U-haul moving truck as we headed for Los Angles, California.

      I remember moving here from New Jersey with a slight accent working hard to remove it by taking voice lessons. Who knew it would lead to other things. I started out in the church choir because my voice coach was (more…)
