In response to our photo of the old Flat Top Restaurant, James Edward Hamilton, shared this photo and caption. Thank you Mr. Hamilton. You can see a little of t...he Flat Top lunch counter and the soda fountain area as Walt had it in the background of this pic. He really was an awesome guy best school bus driver, French fry maker & friend a kid could ever have. This photo is with a little girl who was born along the way as her mother participated in the Longest Walk in 1978 she was named I-70 for the Highway she was born on. They came to the diner while staying in our area for a cool place to rest and to feed the baby. I wish I had more photos of inside the restaurant prior to the remodel maybe some will turn up.
Today was the National School Walkout for students from coast-to-coast to show support for the murder victims at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkla...nd, Fla., and to raise awareness about violence in schools.
Out of security concerns, Deer Lakes did not permit its students to leave their respective buildings. However, the schools did work with students to allow them to participate in the movement without jeopardizing their safety.
The middle school students decided to hold a “walk up day,” where students were encouraged to wear yellow to show support and to walk up to students they don’t know well and to establish communication.
Teacher Steve Kubicko snapped this photo of the initiative in action.
Deer Lakes High School is one of many schools locally and nationally that will participate in tomorrow’s school walkout to show support for the students at Mar...jory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., and to raise awareness for violence in schools.
Deer Lakes will send three individuals and one relay team to swim in a combined seven events at the PIAA Class AA championships Friday and Saturday at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa. That is the most among all Alle-Kiski Valley schools.
The Deer Lakes baseball team will experience some uncertainty this season after losing 10 seniors from last year’s team that advanced to the cusp of the PIAA Class 4A playoffs last season.
