Special Canonization Edition for May
The May edition of the Polish American Journal will be mailed one week later than usual, so we may provide coverage of John Paul II’s canonization in Rome, April 27.

Readers wishing to express their sentiments on this most historic occasion can do so in the form of a patron advertisement by calling (800) 422-1275. Digital editions of the May paper will be emailed to the diocesan offices of Roman Catholic, Polish National Catholic, and other parishes in Polish American communities across the United States.

NEWSMARK

OLYMPIC TARGET SHOOTER INCITES INVESTIGATION. There was foul play in Sochi, says Polish biathlete Krystyna Palka, who says her brand new rifle had been “tampered with.” The Polish team had been on track for a medal and Palka did indeed win the first leg of the biathlon relay.

JUST THE TICKET. 53-year-old Jerry Kajfasz went to the Depew, N.Y. One Stop, his normal day-off haunt, where he bought some cigars and his favorite scratch-off New York Lottery tickets. A mistake lead him to a $10 million win.

BRIGHT STUDENT. 15-year-old Ann Makosinski of Victoria, British Columbia, designed what she calls a “hollow flashlight,” which transforms the heat from your hand into a source of energy, thus eliminating the need for batteries.

MARGINAL STUDY. Experts studying the handwriting of Copernicus are attempting to discern if the notes written in the margins of a book from the Seminary of Warmia Metropolis “Hosianum” in Olsztyn, Poland were written by the famed Polish scientist, who once owned the book.

TASTE TEST. Applications are being sought for Buffalo’s Best Kiełbasa Contest in both commercial and homemade categories.
