           SAY CHEESE!

     Don't worry! Nobody is taking
your picture.
     June 4th is National Cheese
Day! Americans consume, on average,
around 31 pounds of cheese a year!
     I've always liked cheese. I
remember when my grandma
lived in the apartment above our
house when I was growing up.
She always seemed to have a
supply of Kraft American
cheese on hand which proved
to be a great snack!
      As I got older I graduated
to pizza which, of course, is
built around cheese. Ironically
I don't favor American cheese
on pizza. I still like it well
enough. But an Italian treat
like pizza seems better suited
to provolone, parmesan or
        Of course being a
Hazleton native I am also
familiar with the unique
quality and taste of "Scamutz."
         Genuine scamutz is fresh
mozzarella soaked in saltwater
overnight. The cheese is then dried.
I have no idea why it's so big in
Hazleton and so little known
         A block of Extra Sharp
Cheddar has little chance of
surviving very long in our
refrigerator if I'm aware of its
          So whether it's on top of
a burger, grilled between two
slices of bread, or just cut thin
and placed on a cracker, this is
the day to :say cheese!"
        Hope you enjoy your treat
and that all your NEWS is good!
