About the Cover

This month's blog header features one of our area's great tragedies, and it is a representation of one of our country's biggest problems:  Manufacturing is dead.

Scranton Lace operated here for more than one hundred years, gong back to the 1890's.

Now, it's just a big, empty rotting building, and it's sad.

There are plans to rip down sections and re-develop what's left, but as we all know, money is tight and the project is on the back burner-- the far back burner.

I took a few other photos during a recent visit, and I'll share some on an upcoming weekend.
