1967 — Abington Heights and Lackawanna Trail played their last basketball game of the season, with the Comets winning, 78-52.
“Both teams ended the year better than they started, putting on steam in the last half of the season,” reported the Journal.
“Abington Heights finished with an 11-11 season record and Trail had 7-13.”
1977 — One may assume it was a rainy week, as the Journal published a photograph of a tractor-trailer driving through a flooded Northern Boulevard just before the Turnpike bridge in South Abington Township.
Under the image ran a single sentence, “Some things never change.”
1987 — Kevin Cognetti, then in first grade, and Joseph Grabowski, then in seventh grade, were winners of a contest at Our Lady of Peace School.
Father John Bendik, Our Lady of the Snows, presented the boys with prizes for their winning pieces in the “Pro-Life, A Challenge to be Special” art/essay contest, sponsored by the school’s Parent Teachers Guild.
Honorable mentions were also awarded to fourth-grader Shelly Crotti and sixth-grader Tina Bonaddio.
