  • 10 Special Memories from Years of Working at The Willows Inn I spent most of my teenage years at the Willows, working my way up from busser to hostess to waitress, and even briefly working the front desk of the motel. I spent many Friday nights filling water pitchers and refilling Pepsis and even more Sunday mornings clearing sticky syrup-glazed plates from tables. Growing up, many of my friends worked there and while we worked hard together, we laughed just as hard. While I haven't worked there in years, there are some things I will never forget.

  • Understanding Why Our Local Nurses Are On Strike On June 30, our labor contact expired and in hopes of avoiding this type of situation, we have been negotiating with our employer, Heritage Valley Beaver since early May. Unfortunately, after twelve sessions, two of which Linda Homyk, the Chief Nursing Officer of Heritage Valley Health System, did not attend, we were unable to reach an agreement. As a result, we gave our employer a ten-day notice that we would be conducting a work stoppage slated for today. In doing so, we are attempting to convey the gravity of the situation and that we value our community and, most importantly, our patients.
