Columnist Gab Bonesso is just looking for a little good will this holiday season and, well, maybe a mini iPad too.
One of the most famous, over-quoted lines in motion picture history is from the 1992 Penny Marshall film A League of Their Own. The quote goes as follows: “Are you crying? There’s no crying in baseball.” One character declares something to be true, whether it is or not, because it’s humorous. Comedy always trumps fact. There is no such rule. The umps would have to throw fans out of the game who get misty eyed while singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.” I bring up this quote today because I feel like I want to walk into the Robinson Township Market District Giant Eagle and scream something similar to the customers of the store: “Are you being mean? There is no mean in Christmas!” Christmas used to bring out the best in people. As a kid …

Columnist Gab Bonesso had a celebrity sighting last week at the Market District Giant Eagle in Robinson.
I’ve met a few celebrities in my lifetime. Woody Allen made my knees weak. Molly Ringwald? Not so much. So I was taken aback at how much I was taken aback by a celebrity sighting at the Market District Giant Eagle in Robinson. Mind you, I spend way too much time there. And I’ve never seen a celeb. Until now. I had to go shopping on a Saturday because it was literally my first day off of work in over a month. Mom and I worked our way through the store trying to remain pleasant despite the fact that we both hate crowds. But mom and I were not phased by the crowds, the noise, or even the jazz ensemble performing Miles Davis’ tunes in the fish section. We were unstoppable. As we were nearing the end of our shopping journey, I happened to …

Columnist Gab Bonesso has seen masses of stink bugs throughout the area and it's making her tense. Very tense.
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. `'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door - Only this, and nothing more. - Edgar Allen Poe (The Raven) I have been thinking of this Poe poem lately. While he is speaking of a raven rapping and tapping on his chamber door, I have been hearing stink bugs rapping and tapping on my bedroom window. Not nearly as poetic, I know. I can’t believe that not only are the stink bugs back, but they seem to have arrived in a much larger quantity this season. If you don’t believe me then take a …

Columnist Gab Bonesso has a scary experience crossing the street at the Robinson Market District Giant Eagle.
I’ve already written about the apparently impossible concept of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists sharing the road with one another without killing one another. The response was mixed. Many cyclists thanked me. Others despise the road pedalers and said “I see too many cyclists riding through stop signs”. It was a polarizing topic which made this people-pleasing columnist tense. With that said, here I go again. I think it is time for the Robinson Township Police to station a crossing guard at the Market District Giant Eagle. Last Sunday my mother and I were shopping at the store in Robinson Township. Normally when we arrive I drop my mother off directly in front of the store’s entrance so that she doesn’t have far to walk with her cane. …
