September 2015

The most notable events this September were the opening of the Flight 93 Memorial Visitor Center and the kickoff of football season. 

During one of West Virginia's home games, Brad Paisley made a surprise appearance and sang "Country Roads" before the national anthem. Unlucky for me, I had my first ever memory card corrupt on me during his performance. But thankfully, I carried an extra memory card by some miracle. Lesson learned: always prepare for a worst case scenario. Even today's innovative technology is still man made.

Craig Fallucco, the wine specialist at Westmoreland Mall State store, poses for a portrait inside the business' temperature controlled wine cellar on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2015. Fallucco retired as sommelier at Rolling Rock about seven years ago when his mother was dying to care for her in Pittsburgh home. Eventually, he stumbled onto a part-time job at the East Liberty store and about three years ago came to Greensburg full time. Since then, wine sales have increased and Craig has developed a following including several local restaurants who have tapped him for their wine lists.
