The featured article in the Summer issue, “Henry Arneberg—His Journey From Brooklyn to the Green Hills of Home,” was written by his daughter, Bliss Arneberg Ireland. She tells the story of her father’s early life in a Norwegian enclave in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, in the early 1900s and what brought the family to Pike County. After serving in the Army during World War II, Henry returned home to South Sterling to marry his sweetheart (Bliss’s mother, Carmen Rochfort) and resume his teaching and coaching career at Greene-Dreher High School. Bliss shares a daughter’s perspective on the man so many of us remember as teacher, coach, mentor, community leader, and personal friend.
The issue also includes an article by Robert Savage, who served stateside with the U. S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division in the mid-1950s; an article by Michael Smith on “lessons learned” as a young teenager while working summers for his dad, a Registered Surveyor; and an article by Bernadine Lennon on the first wave of exploratory drilling for natural gas in northeastern Pennsylvania from the 1930s to the 1950s, as exemplified by the Jennie Haag gas well in South Sterling.
