But don't blame just the summer drought for smaller apples in western Pennsylvania.
Cooler, crisp temperatures and the sight of leaves starting to turn colors may have you yearning to head out to an apple festival or pumpkin patch this weekend. But you'd be smart to call ahead if your weekend outing involves a local apple orchard because some of them are closed for the season. "All of our apples froze in March so we're closed," says Jan Senovich of Half Crown Hill Orchard in McDonald. The summer drought had nothing to do with it, she says, because Mother Nature already did her damage before the drought started. Remember the exremely warm weather we had back in March? That had everything blooming and budding early including apple trees. Senovich says the blossoms were about three weeks earlier than average. When frost …

Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Friends and relatives of St. Alphonsus School’s fourth-grade class recently came from near and far to be honored at the school’s annual “Admiration Society Tea.” The students, dressed in their best spring attire, welcomed their guests into a specially decorated classroom for an hour of heartfelt expressions of thanks.
