Another tough day on the Celebrity Watch. We lost “the girl who turned the world on with her smile” - Mary Tyler Moore.

And the music world again is in mourning, with Allman Brother band co-founder and drummer Butch Trucks passing away.
Kudos to Pam Mariani. The former longtime GM of the Edgmont Country Club has been working toward creating a new veterans center at Delaware County Community College in honor of her father. They recently opened the Nazz Mariani Veterans Center. We salute the effort, Pam!
