Andy Palumbo Suggestions

My friend and fellow co-worker Andy Palumbo sent me a twitter message the other day (ok, maybe more like a month ago) with some new bloggers he wanted to see us link to.

"John Quigley's A Green Thing blog"

John Quigley is a former Hazleton mayor.  He talks about green living and fracking on his blog, which we all know is a hot button issue in Northeast PA these days.

From the About:  


The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a Green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all Ridicule and Deformity...and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.

William Blake, English poet (1757-1827)

Experienced leader with a diverse career in the not-for-profit, public, and private sectors. Served as the founding executive director of a non-profit economic development corporation and as a 2-term Mayor of a city of 25,000 residents. Held a number of management positions with two industry-leading companies in the private sector and taught economics at a Pennsylvania State University branch campus. Wrote a weekly public affairs column for a northeast Pennsylvania newspaper and served as government relations manager with a statewide public interest organization. Most recently, served 2 years as the third Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

"The Pix Chick"

Jeanne L. Kenney is "just a chick with a camera, walking around taking pictures of stuff".  You can also find her work on her Facebook Page, Twitter and her website

If you haven't visited in a while, you should take another look at Andy's blog.  Right now he has some bad photography featuring buildings in Wilkes-Barre that may be on the endangered list (staying with our Hotel Sterling theme on our blog this week).  I must say that Andy is probably one of the more dedicated bloggers I know.  He posts something new every day.  I wish I had that level of energy for my personal blog!

NOTE:  Jeanne informed me that she moved from the Tumblr blog to Wordpress due to technical issues and will be using that blog from now on to post.

Have a suggestion for a blogger that we aren't linking to?  Drop us a line:
