PITTSTON — Paul Cooper might be a bit sad that Cooper’s on the Waterfront will no longer be a full-service restaurant, but he is looking to the future with enthusiasm.
The business, co-owned by Paul and Jack Cooper, opened its doors in Pittston in 1991. The restaurant eventually expanded to include Cooper’s Cabana and a forest room with a view of the Susquehanna River.

When the entire conference gathered Wednesday at the Wyoming County Fairgrounds for the Ed Narkiewicz WVC Championship Meet, Williams again stood above the pack.

Williams came away from the meet happy with the competition and what it means as she prepares for next week’s District 2 Championships at Lakeland High School.
On a day otherwise dominated by the Dallas boys and girls regular-season champions, Williams and Hazleton Area senior Mary Everdale finished 1-2 in the girls race.
“She really kept on me the whole race,” Williams said.

Glodzik, 45, had been expected to report to Federal Correctional Institution Fort Dix in New Jersey to begin serving a 30-month sentence on tax and firearms charges, but a motion filed Friday by Glodzik’s attorney raised concerns over the former city tower’s fitness.
Though Glodzik is in otherwise good health, “tender” masses discovered on his forearm and abdomen should be removed and sent to a lab to rule out malignancies, Dr.
