A TELEVISION cameraman who recorded one of the most popular homecrowning achievement in baseball history will be at the 8th annual Vandergrift Arts Crafts Celebration on Sept. 27 and 28 in Vandergrift to recount the highlights of his profession.

George Boyle was working for KDKA-TV when he shot Pittsburgh Pirates 2nd baseman Expense Mazeroski as he homered his group to a World Series title versus the New York Yankees on Oct. 13, 1960.

Although Boyle was attending the game as a fan that day, he had his video camera with him and began filming in the 7th inning when Yankees shortstop Tony Kubek got injured on the field.

“Up comes Maz,” Boyle remembers. “He whacked the pitch over Yogi Berras head, and as Im following him around the bases, my better half– who was an absolutely fanatical Pirates fan– started pounding me on the back and screaming ‘We did it! We won!”

Boyle fast discovered a cab and tipped the driver $20 to hurry the film to a developer and after that to KDKA in time for the 7 pm broadcast.

“It was a little shaky since of the pounding I took, however it was the veryfirst video anybody saw of Mazs housecrowning achievement,” says Boyle of Harmarville, who states this and other highlights of his 30-year profession in a book, “You Oughta Compose a Book … By George.”

Boyle will certainly be at Kennedy Park on Sept. 27 to sign his books and share stories from the days before TELEVISION live shots and digital videography.

His look is one of activities plannedprepared for the celebration that commemorates community pride.

Also on tap are music and dance efficiencies, a Chalk Walk competitors amongst area secondary schools, an outdoor art exhibition, yarn bombing of the Kennedy Park gazebo and a chainsaw woodcarving presentation. A range of picnic foods and handmade crafts will certainly be offered for purchase.

On a severe note, authorities will let individuals experience exactly what its like to drive while drunk, using fatal-vision goggles and a specially developed cart on a serpentine course.

The festival is sponsored by the Vandergrift Improvement Program, a nonprofit group that organizes the regional farmers market and Christmastime light-up night and parade.

“Weve been around since 2004, and were constantly planning to do things that will certainly draw people into Vandergrift,” says program chair Julie Martin of Allegheny Township. “The arts and crafts festival is a quality of life-type occasion, a nice way to bring the neighborhood together and showflaunt our town.”

The Vandergrift Public Library Yo-Yos, a weekly knit-and-crochet group, will show its support by yarn-bombing the Kennedy Park gazebo.

“Were an old mill town. A great deal of towns like ours have actually been slowly dying off, so you do things to keep them dynamic,” says Yo-Yos creator Michele Artman, who lives in Butler Town but takes a trip to the library on Thursdays to knit.

She and other Yo-Yos have actually been making 12-inch squares from random skeins of yarn they will sew together into a blanket big enough to cover the gazebo roofing system.

“The roof is 80 feet in diameter; so, itll be big,” Artman states. “If we have anything left over, well yarn-bomb the fence and possibly some trees.

The Yo-Yos also have actually crocheted a baby afghan to raffle off with other products to benefit the library.

“The library is more than a library; its a community center, and we likeprefer to bring awareness to it,” says Artman, who directed a yarn-bombing around the library throughout a 2012 arts celebration. “It got individuals talking, and we thought our yarn-bombing this year will, too.”

The gazebo likewise will be the setting for kids activities, such as storytelling, painting and crafting, Martin states.

For teens, there will certainly be the fifth yearly Chalk Stroll, a contest based upon the art of 16th-century Italian street painters, or Madonnari. Influenced by a style of “Theres No Area Like House” from “The Wizard of Oz,” teams of high-school students from Apollo, Burrell, Deer Lakes, Evangel Heights, Fox Chapel, Greensburg Salem, Kiski, Kittanning and Leechburg will draw pavement murals on Jackson Street, Martin says.

Art specialists from Slippery Rock University will certainly judge the contest and award trophies and medallions.

“The Chalk Walk is ending up being a neighborhood custom,” Martin states. “We made use of to hold it in spring but moved it to fall since theres less possibility of rain. We always keep our fingers crossed for good weather.”

The celebration will certainly be a last chance to view 40 artworks showed along Grant Opportunity all summer season as part of the Paint-a-Palette Job. Local artists dealt with 3-by-4-foot wooden combinations anchored onto stands on the sidewalk.

Live entertainment is slated for both days by regional dance studios and various bands that perform rock n roll, gospel and country.

Jim Gall of Latrobe will demonstrate woodcarving with a chainsaw.

Because crafts and foods are a huge draw, Martin states festivalgoers will discover burgers, hot dogs and cotton sweetfairy floss, in addition to strolling tacos, fried veggies, homemade baked items, raviolis and pierogies.

Crafters will sell handcrafted clothes for American Woman dolls, jewelry, quilted items and other products.

Suppliers charges assist cover the festivals running costs in addition to little improvement tasks around town, Martin says. “In past years, we got a matching grant to enhance store facades, and we dealt withspruced up the little parklet throughout from the post office.”

The devices utilized to develop art can be as differed as the artists who wield them.

With a basic No. 2 pencil, Kiski Location High School sophomore Elizabeth Aston gives life to dragons and unicorns.

Jim Gall of Latrobe uses a somewhat heftier device– a chainsaw– so others can see the bears he sees in white pine logs.

They were among the artists and crafters participating in the eighth annual Vandergrift Arts Crafts Festival on Saturday. This is the first year the festival has actually been held in Kennedy Park, and the very first time its run over two days– the festival continues Sunday from twelve noon to 5 pm

The parks gazebo ended up being the target of a “yarn bomb” by The Yoyos, a needle-arts club that fulfills at the Vandergrift Public Library. The top of the gazebo was blanketed in crocheted and knitted yarn.

At the base of the gazebo, three-student groups from Kiski Location Secondary school, St. Joseph Secondary school and Evangel Heights Christian Academy utilized chalk to create images reflecting the Wizard of Oz theme, “Theres no location like home.”

“These children have so much skill,” stated Linda Fedon, an Evangel Heights art instructor, as the students colored the concrete pieces.

The group from St. Joseph won very first placetop place in the “Chalk Stroll” competitors, with Evangel Heights taking second and Kiski Location 3rd. Evangel Heights won an individuals choice award.

The aroma of wood and gasoline and the buzz of a chainsaw were emanating from where Gall, covered in wood chips, was dealing with his productions.

In addition to chainsaws, his art tools include grinders, sanders and torches. With those, he can turn a log into a bear, or an eagle, or “every thing, anything”– even an alien.

“I can take a look at it and tell exactly what Im getting out of it,” he said. “Its like drawing, almost.”

Aston has actually been drawing with pencils considering that she was little. She was influenced by a motion picture, “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron.”

She stated her drawings normally begin with something. She pointed to one that started with a dragon. What was the dragon taking a look at? A unicorn.

George Boyle of Harmar states he couldnt draw a stick man if he tried. Boyle, a long-lasting photographer, chooses video cameras– still and movement– for the devices of his expression.

At his display table, Boyle had the Bolex 16 mm cam he made use of to movie Bill Mazeroskis World Series-winning home run in 1960. “That was the workhorse of the market back then,” he stated.

With lenses he also bore witness to Franco Harris “Immaculate Reception” and Roberto Clementes 3,000 th hit.

With all he has actually seen, many individualslots of people told Boyle, “you oughta compose a book.” So thats what he did– along with utilizing the expression for the title of the work he released in January 2013. It consists of a blurb Fred Rogers wrote before his death in 2003; Boyle had worked on “Mister Rogers Neighborhood.”

Becky Shaffer of Allegheny Township sees art crazes others tossdiscard. She makes skeletons from milk cartons; butterflies from aluminum cans; and Christmas accessories from light bulbs.

Now that shes retired, Shaffer is putting even more time into her recycled art.

“I just saw the things individuals were throwingdiscarding,” she said. “I thoughted I should be able to discover a use for them.”

Obviously, it can be risky attempting to open a genuine ethnic dining establishment in Maple Tree Location. While I dined anonymously at 2-month-old Pho Kamp; K last night, co-owner Khanh Le told me that early clients complained about the taste of his food. Specifically, they thought there was too much of it. Regrettably for those of us who such as huge taste, hes been listening.

So whats a critic to do? Im stuck evaluating what I attempted, not what I believe Le and his partner, Khanh Pham, can. There were hints of skill throughout my meal, but it was stymied by the utter lack of salt. Still, provided the value provided and the outstanding place, Im readygoing to offer this household company another shot. Heres why:

1. The drinks need no tweaking. Fresh-squeezed lemonade ($2.50) is pulpy and as blindingly sweet as the Vietnamese refresher needs to be. In an uncommon touch, the sugar crystals are integrated effortlessly, making this variation easier on my teeth.

Many Vietnamese areas that note avocado healthy smoothies on the menu seem to have them there only for embellishment. There are real avocados in the kitchen area at Pho Kamp; K, and the drink is smooth and simply thick enough.

Last night, the avocado was just south of ripe, but Ill write it off as bad timing. How could I not, considering how well the drink matched with the delicately fried cha gio ($3.50)? The egg rolls were heavy on cabbage and pork, offering them a fresher taste than many of their kind, which are so commonly dominated by rice noodles. A little even more ginger and salt, and this variation might be a competitor.
