Meet Chuck Nogal, At-Large Member for the Committee for Elect.Rauterkus.com

Mr. Chuck Nogal is an veteran of the US Army and served in Japan for five years, from 1952 to 1956. Then he served as a citizen for an additional two years. Upon his return, he worked for Gimble's in management for 18 years. His stint included the role of operational manager at the South Hills Village store.

On a lark, he opened a store on the South Side when the South Side looked like death warmed over. From the day he opened, with his partner, in 1972, the could not contain all the classes. They have classes in ceramics every Monday to Friday from 7 to 9 pm.

The Glazing Pot has always had an interesting storefront. Now it shows a message about the campaign, and flags of course.

Chuck once had five letters to the editor published in the same day: They ran in the Press, PG, PG sports, Pgh Catholic and one was read on TV.

For a stretch, everthing he wrote was published in the South Pittsburgh Reporter. Once when he didn't submit a letter, the publisher got a few calls asking what was wrong with Chuck's column.

Photos and testimonial to come.
