It's been a rough week.
As most of you know, early Tuesday we lost one of our own Tamaqua bureau chief Joe Plasko.
For the few who did not know Joe, he was a terrific person. He was smart, hardworking, funny and kind.
He was a walking treasure trove of information. Ask him a question about music, and he could answer it easily. Ask him something about sports no problem. If it were about local sports, he would not only give you the answer, but possibly some statistics to back it up.
