WOMEN WE LOVE

The 2009 Edition of “Women We Love” is now compiled after many weeks of sorting through various entries and nominations. “Women We Love” is a tribute to women in politics, media, pop culture or on our periphery. Here’s a brief rundown of our 2009 winners:
Kristi Capel: The WBRE TV morning weather person gets you up and moving with a smile, smart outfit and sometimes SmartAlec comments. But she does great community events and almost every guy I know wants a picture with her.
Cathy Ramsay: There are some women who teach you about life, others about hurt, still others about love. Then there are those who teach you about ICD 9 Medical Coding. My classmate at LCCC Cathy Ramsay took me under her wing and made me make sense of the whole thing with painstaking sessions at the LCCC learning lab, the library and Grotto Pizza. (She needed a few beers after trying to deal with my learning skills but I prevailed with her help!)
Jennifer Rogers: The well respected and likable barrister made a very good impression on the campaign trail in her attempt for a Judgeship. With her skills and personal magnetism, plus her legal ability she will be back. Soon.
Margaret Bisignani Moyle: In the primary for Lackawanna County Judge she slayed all of her Democrat dragons in short order. In the November election she became the second women jurist on the Common Pleas Court.
Tina Polachek Gartley: Attorney Gartley was the energizer bunny of the ’09 election season. Besting 15 other attorneys for a Judicial nomination in the primary, Gartley won the general election by relentless campaign and a clear articulation of what type of Judge she would be on the embattled Luzerne County Court.
Mary McCormick: Her work on “In Plain Sight” is tough, gritty and just my speed. I’m a fan of tough women what can I say.
Sarah Buynovsky: WNEP TV’s reporter is on the scene lending insightful angles on all type of stories from the politically charged to the downright gruesome. But she does her job well and once in a while gets me away from WBRE TV.
Kitty Bruce: I first met Kitty Bruce twenty years ago and even though I’m sure she won’t remember me, I certainly remembered her. Back then she was wise beyond her years. This year Bruce used some of her late father Lenny Bruce’s memorabilia for a good cause, “Lenny's House”, a non profit drug and alcohol rehab center for women. It’s a two-fer for Kitty, doing good for women in crisis and keeping the memory of her brilliant father alive.
Renita Fennick: The new Executive Director of the Luzerne County GOP was accessible, personable and competent in helping to rebuild the party. Her steady hand played a big role in the success of the local GOP this past November.
Dottie Stankovic: The veteran county official had a close call this election season in her bid for another term as Luzerne County Register of Wills. And even though she was hit hard in the press (and by bloggers) she ran a campaign filled with enthusiasm, grace and class. Her performance at the fall debate was a political primer for those women wanting to achieve in local government.
Katty Kay: Might be the accent, might be the political insights. Whatever it is, whenever she appears on American TV news shows, I tune in all the time. And even learn a thing or two.
Lizzie Miller: Miller is a twenty year old model for Glamour Magazine that caused a stir in the summer when she appeared semi nude. Miller is not a stick figure but a gal with some meat on her bones. Although designer Karl Lagerfield was appalled, the folks at Glamour recognized that more women were built like Miller than Lagerfield’s stick models. One time my mom found my stash of alternative magazines and admonished me saying, “David, real women aren’t built that way”. If mom saw Lizzie Miller, she’d be shy one less scolding point because “real women are built like Lizzie”. And not to sound sexist here but that's a good thing.

Good choices. I think your gushing and inclusion of and about Lizzie Miller was a bit much but after researching her height and age, I am not surprised at her being on your list. Happy New Year David. Keep doing what you do....maybe one day we'll figure it out.

were is Lyndall Stout. She was shafted by WBRE. She should have been able to stay on just like Mark Hiller was kept on.

Kristi Capel you have to be jokeing. Lyndall Stout now that is a classy lady, well graced and good viewer connection. Hope the new new director at WBRE brings her back. Maybe she will replace EVa Masstromatio who is being let go.
