POBC-Kids-Call-Me-Santa

“I drive school bus for a living, all the people up there know me as Santa. I drive mostly for high school — but do the specialty schools, for kids with special needs like ADHD. Been doing it about 15 years now. My people came from Austria. My Dad was born and raised in Beaver County. My Grandfather came straight from Austria, worked out by Cannelton Road at the brick yard; he and my Dad would work there all week, stay out in the yards, come home on the weekends. Good way to keep a marriage together, right? [Laughs] They say absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

Erin Ninehouser loves photography for its ability to reveal truths and insights that are often too difficult to capture with words. She believes, as Garrison Keillor says through his troubled yet triumphant character Barbara in Pontoon, that “the only sermon that counts is the one formed by our actions.” A native of New Castle, Erin has made her home in Ambridge where she lives happily with her wonderful husband Dave, their three adorable and hilarious cats, and their “old gentleman” dog, Max. Erin is excited to help tell the stories of the people of Beaver County. You can see more of her work on Facebook and connect on Instagram or Twitter.
