The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - LIV­ING -

… and div­ing head-first into the Oc­to­ber 13 Columbus Cup golf out­ing. As pres­i­dent of Mor­gan Went­worth, a firm that is a pro­fes­sional le­gal re­cruiter of at­tor­neys, she has ar­ranged to be a Di­a­mond Spon­sor of the event.

For­mer Mont­gomery County Com­mis­sioner and District At­tor­ney Mike Marino – climb­ing down off his fa­vorite mount at the Red Buf­falo Ranch long enough to still keep his finger on the pulse of all that hap­pens in the county.

Look­ing very dap­per in a sport­coat and knit shirt, An­thony (Steppy) Taormina spent much of the evening be­moan­ing the fact that he picked such a warm night for the out­fit. Per­haps a bowl­ing shirt would have been more fit­ting for the owner of Fa­cenda Whi­taker Lanes.

Ven­er­a­ble at­tor­ney Jim Heffernan – wearing a bright-col­ored pair of plaid shorts that screamed, “I’m not giving up on sum­mer yet.”

The pride of the Univer­sity of Vir­ginia Frank Al­lan – ready to ar­gue sports with any­one who will lis­ten … and needling any­one else within earshot.

Mont­gomery County Sher­iff Rus­sell Bono – still mak­ing the tran­si­tion from Nor­ris­town’s top cop to the un­ac­cus­tomed job of a politi­cian, as he pre­pares for the 2015 elec­tion that hope­fully keep him in his cur­rent po­si­tion.

Chief Deputy Sher­iff Wil­lie Richet – look­ing in­cred­i­bly proud as he sur­veys the PAL scene, an event that has been his main pas­sion over the last cou­ple of decades.

PAL Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Brett Wells – con­stantly comb­ing the crowd … thank­ing the pur­vey­ors for their con­tri­bu­tions and thank­ing the at­ten­dees for their sup­port.

Penn­syl­va­nia State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mike Vereb – work­ing the room in his home 150th Leg­isla­tive District … and hear­ing com­ments about his re­cent back­ing of a bill to le­gal­ize med­i­cal mar­i­juana that will help a num­ber of peo­ple with se­ri­ous health prob­lems.

Whitemarsh Town­ship Po­lice Chief Mike Beatty – tak­ing a few mo­ments off the job … and pre­par­ing for his big Mont­gomery County Po­lice Chiefs golf out­ing at Green Val­ley CC on Septem­ber 22.

Mont­gomery County Com­mis­sioner Les­lie Richards – mak­ing stops be­tween ap­point­ments on a very busy day … and be­ing re­minded that she had 20 min­utes to make the rounds in the room and greet peo­ple.

Rhonda Thomas – al­low­ing that she has had a cou­ple of in­ter­views with McDon­alds Cor­po­ra­tion, in the same build­ing where she worked for many years with Unisys. She re­ceived a num­ber of Good Luck wishes.

Red­stone Amer­i­can Grill Gen­eral Man­ager Mike Mus­sel­man – man­ning the booth with all of the del­i­ca­cies that are pre­pared in the county’s busiest restau­rant … and gird­ing for a trip back to his home in Chicago next week­end, for an ex­tended bach­e­lor party. He is cer­tain to be very tired when he re­turns to this area.

Don Zajac, the long­time PAL pres­i­dent and booster – look­ing very proud that his daugh­ter, Karen, is tak­ing over much of the op­er­a­tion of his ex­tremely suc­cess­ful Nor­ris Sales com­pany.

Karen Zajac – look­ing cool, calm and col­lected … as she vis­ited with many friends from the com­mu­nity, all the while keep­ing an eye on the Nor­ris Sales light­ing and op­er­a­tional equip­ment be­ing used to pull off the PAL event.

Ron and Su­san Battaglia – anx­iously await­ing the open­ing of the new Battaglia Auto show­room and sales lot on Ridge Pike in Ply­mouth Town­ship. The fin­ish­ing touches of a mag­nif­i­cent ad­di­tion to “auto row” are tak­ing place this week.

Seda Mirabile – look­ing very proud while talk­ing about the new Battaglia Auto show­room be­ing opened by her daugh­ter and son-in-law. A woman who al­ways has an eye for style, she specif­i­cally awaits the ar­rival of the new fur­ni­ture for the of­fices.

And, fi­nally, Rich DiSi­mone – look­ing more and more like Old Blue Eyes ev­ery day, as he does his mu­si­cal Frank Si­na­tra im­per­son­ation show.

That con­cludes the vir­tual tour of the event – an an­nual show­piece for Mont­gomery County. If this re-en­act­ment doesn’t quite sat­isfy per­sonal tastes … the sug­ges­tion is to pony up the $50 for a ticket and at­tend in per­son next year.

You could still hear the en­gines revving as Bob Lan­des made a lap around the aisles. For many years he wrote an ex­cel­lent auto rac­ing col­umn in The Times Her­ald.
