On a cloudy and cool spring morning, Downtown Pittsburgh’s first grocery in five years was emerging from its shell like a butterfly from its cocoon.
Some workers stocked a freezer with frozen shrimp, lobster langostino and other seafood. Others handled deliveries of cheeses and other goods. Yet others trained to use the cash register.
At the back of 435 Market St., bottles of imported red and white Italian wines beckoned visitors. Pastas, cereals, chocolates, pickles, olives, teas, cookies, jelly, potato chips and sauces crammed the shelves.
“ ‘Finally’ is the word,” developer Ralph Falbo said as he talked to two friends and surveyed the scene.
NORRISTOWN, PA — The alleged “Swiss cheese pervert,” Christopher Pagano, 41, of Norristown, was arrested Thursday morning as part of a joint investigation between Philadelphia and Norristown police, according to NBC10.
Pagano is suspected of being the “Swiss cheese pervert,” infamous throughout the area for his penchant for propositioning women to perform lewd acts on him using Swiss cheese.
According to NBC10, the suspect was described as a heavy-set male between the ages of 40 and 50 with a goatee. Police also said he was driving a newer model silver sedan but has also been spotted in a black colored sedan.
POTTSTOWN, PA — In addition to the Halloween-themed Temple of Terror, Halloween Parade and Monster Dash 5K, another crucial element of the borough’s growing October-long slate of activities is the resurrection of Riverfest.
Scheduled this year for Oct. 12, from noon to 6 p.m. along the Schuylkill River and from 6 to 8 p.m. in downtown Pottstown, the list of things to do during this special day is truly dizzying.
