AMBRIDGE — Beaver County schools had their lives “flipped, turned upside down” Thursday morning when a phone greeting involving the theme song from the 1990s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” was taken as a threat.
Apparently, someone misheard “shooting some b-ball outside of the school” as “shooting some people outside of the school” and freaked out.
After the spring warmth comes and melts away the snow, but before the weeds can plant their roots and the shrubs fill their twigs with foliage, this three story school house bares all.
What was once a bustling school in rural Boone county, now stands only as a dilapidated reminder of its former life. Classrooms now lie in a pile of rubble in the basement; shards of blackboards litter the lowest floor.
Swimming Pool and Limestone Bath House, Beaver, Pa.
“This spacious pool, 75 feet by 150 feet, situated in Gypsy Glen Park is adjoined by a children’s pool. The attendance average 75,000 annually. The pool which was open to the public in 1941, employs fourteen persons, and all have the Red Cross Instructor’s licenses.”
I just saw a link for my county’s FB page on my wall. And it read,
“How do you feel about Chick-fil-A’s President Dan Cathy’s statement on gay marriage? Do you think same-sex couples should be allowed to marry?”
I left my two cents and decided to read the comments.
I live in western Pennsylvania in an area that has so many backwater hicks and Confederate KKK assholes. I hate everyone here. I see the comments and see nearly all the feedback is “No.” “It’s disgusting.” “America’s in the shitter for faggot praising.”
Really? I checked your facebook pages. I checked your ‘about me’ section. Don’t think I made disgustingly loud laughter at the fact you put in your bio that you 'love everyone for who they are’ and 'idgaf about politics or religion.’
You, lady, are the epitome of asshole bigotry. You are a cuntcake and should be twatpunted off of 'da bridge’ as you called your hometown.
My comment, if anyone cares, read:
“With the divorce rate at 50%, I think some people should be concerned with their own marriages and not on anyone else’s. Love does not discriminate.
Remember when people were up in arms about mixed race marriages? Well history tends to repeat itself, so in the future, gay marriage (or as I like to cal it, marriage) will be as legal and as commonplace as straight marriage (again, as I like to call it, marriage)."
Finally caught up with my editing. Just finished 3 years of post and I am finally caught up with all my Pennsylvania waterfalls. Here are a few recent ones. Now to finish North Carolina, Vermont, and New Hampshire.
