​​​Jan. 15, 1981 -   Pitcher Bob Gibson is elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Gibson, who needed 301 votes for election, is named on 337 ballots by the Baseball Writers Association of America. In 17 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Gibson won 251 games, struck out 3,117 batters, compiled a 2.91 ERA, won 20 games five times, and earned two World Championship rings. In 1968, Gibson enjoyed his best season ever, going 22-9 with a 1.12 ERA and captured the Cy Young Award. Players falling short of the 301 votes needed for election include Don Drysdale (243), Gil Hodges (241), Harmon Killebrew (239), Hoyt Wilhelm (238) and Juan Marichal (233).

Verse for today Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  ​ (John 8:31-32   NKJV) 

This Day in History

Sunday January 13, 2019

I watched some of both NFL playoff games. I am hoping for New Orleans and Kansas City in the Super Bowl but I must admit Brady and the Patriots look the best right now. It is unreal that this will be the 13th conference championship game appearance by the Patriots during the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era.

#1 Song 60 years ago today.


"Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" was recorded in 1958 by The Platters for their album Remember When?. The group's version became a number one hit in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart.

11 inches of snow Saturday and Saturday night!   Another inch with freezing rain Sun morning. Wind chill below zero all day and evening Sunday.  Wind chill -12° Monday morning.

Yesterday's low of 11.9° was the lowest temperature in Clarion since March 17.

1 year ago today:​  

The Pirates traded Andrew McCutchen to the Giants.

May. 15, 2018 at PNC Park  -  Twice Daniel Palka came to bat with his White Sox trailing the Pirates by one run and twice Palka hit a 3-run homer. The Sox beat the Bucs 7-5. Nicky Delmonico went 2-3 and scored three times. The loss ended Pittsburgh's 4-game winning streak. They are now 19-22, 4 games out of first place.
