 Ethnic clubs are fading into Beaver County's past

By Tom Davidson   When Dominic "Hawk" Santia was a boy, he'd tag along with his father to Sons of Italy club meetings.

They were...

Family-owned, unpretentious Jersey-Italian restaurants that took pride in recipes handed down from Nonna and Pop.   And, yeah, they still exist. Compared to other parts of the country, we are swimming in red-sauce...
