Last Minute Easter Errands

LACKAWANNA COUNTY—The parking lot is packed at Schiff’s in Dickson City.

“Lot of running around to all the different stores today, so and it’s hectic wherever you go,” said Mary Anne Bordo, who was out with family running last minute Easter errands.

Inside Schiff’s, people shopped for Easter staples.

The staff was busy, taking orders, restocking and ringing up purchases.

“Ham, kielbasa, sausage and whatever did we get. Provolone cheese, you name it. Stuffed shells, chicken cutlets,” said Bordo.

A flower tent in Dickson City has been busy all week as people scooped up colorful blooms for Easter.

Dog Owner’s Tweet Leads to Special Delivery for His Pooch

special_deliveryBLAKELY — If you have ever wondered if anyone reads your tweets, this is proof enough.

Last month, Matt Horn of Blakely tweeted a seemingly mundane comment on Twitter about his dog and delivery people.

The message read, “My dog hates every delivery man except the DHL guy for some reason.”

Well, DHL noticed the tweet and it paid off, at least for Matt’s four-legged friend Jester.

Good Friday Fish Frenzy in Jermyn

JERMYN — A Good Friday fish fry in Lackawanna County has become so popular that some wait for more than an hour for a piece of fried fish. And some are willing to hide from their bosses just to be there.

When the Newswatch 16 cameras show up to the Artisan Hose Company Good Friday fish dinner in Jermyn, quite a few faces hide from view for fear their husbands, wives, or bosses will find out where they were for lunch.

Especially if they don’t bring home any fish to share.

One volunteer hid behind an unusually large raffle basket in hopes she won’t run into her boss.

“Yes, most definitely, there’s a few of us today that didn’t go to work. You know, took a vacation day or whatever to help out, help out the community,” she said.

Volunteers from the Artisan Hose Company put in a full week’s work prepping the fish before they start frying on Good Friday.
