CHEERS - To a deserving recipient. We published an article in March 2011 with a headline that read, "Positively famous." The story was about Johnstown resident Bill Pollak, who at that time was one of the semifinalists as an inductee into the Energizer Keep Going Hall of Fame. Bill has been in the limelight numerous times in the past 50 years. He's been recognized for his strong belief in education and for his service in elected positions, including mayor of Johnstown. This time, we congratulate him on receiving the Fulton County Republicans' 2013 Charles Hough Award. A side note: Apparently, the Pollak family tree holds a number of award winners. Bill and Winnie's daughter, Susan Kowalski, a middle school librarian in East Syracuse, recently received the 2012 Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award.
