Let me preface this blog by saying that I know that there are people out there who are in much worse shape than I am, and they have my heartfelt sympathy and respect.

That being said, I still intend to whine just a little.

By TOM STEINER The Avonworth-Northgate wrestling squad may be lacking in numbers, but not in talent, with six wrestlers qualifying for the WPIAL wrestling championships. Qualifiers were determined by where they finished in the sectional tournament held last weekend at Avonworth. They include, in order of weight categories, Mariah Wasko, 113; Ken Azzarella, 126; Darion Trimmer, 132; Anthony Trimmer, 152; Brandon Wasko, 195; and Ka'Dale Coles, 285. For Northgate senior Darion Trimmer, this marks his second consecutive sectional title in the 132 lb. weight class.

I would like to thank Tom Steiner for writing the article about the Emsworth Borough pylons preservation. I would also like to thank The Citizen for publishing the column.

These historic works of art mean so much for the identity of Emsworth Borough and the entire Route 65 corridor.

I also want to thank the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), The Pennsylvania Historical Society and the contractor Lane Construction for the thought and care that was used in preserving and moving the pylons to their new locations.

In his front page story last week ("History Restored," March 2, 2012), Tom Steiner appropriately stated "So often the road to progress includes demolishing the past." Let me flip that around and also point out that striving to preserve meaningful history is often perceived as obstructing progress. Mr. Steiner's story helps debunk that perception, and shows us that maybe improvement and preservation are not necessarily at odds, and in fact can be complementary.
