The award recognizes his fine work on the staff of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh for 36 years. During much of that time, Hamper coordinated the library's technical services. But nine years ago, he says, his responsibilities underwent "quite a change" when he b*cani? a district consultant, providing professional guidance and advice on every possible level to the 48 local libraries in his charge. · The association's award was a North Hills Neighbors Georgene Gallo needed a lift (and got it) to a conference in Harrisburg; or maybe from the volunteers in one- or two-room libraries that are too spiall to support a paid staff who were taught by Kamper to maximize their resources. Kamper looks forward to a future of shared resources throughout the state and to what he terms the wealth of information to be made available through, for example, the statewide library network of Access PA, and to the Electronic Information Network -- a vast project for which he drew up the original proposal. The network will encompass the installation of 1100 terminals with on-line access to all member- "What a wonderful system this is," Hampton man bi new book Quick -- what job requires total honesty, utter integrity, and sharply honed problem-solving skills? For Thomas Stormer, the answer is sales. But when he first started out as a salesman he had to convince even his parents that he could rise above the negative stereotypical connotations often connected with a sales career. Now, Tom Stormer, who lives in Hampton near Hartwood Acres, sells computer systems for IBM. He does his job so well that he is included in a book entitled "Sales Superstars" by David C. Forward. The author's rigorous search for America's top sales professionals included interviews with major corporate executives who were asked to report on their best sales representa- -··-- " - · · ...... Stormer, who sells computer systems to major clients in the business and banking industries, uses a simple approach in his work: He becomes, he says, the advocate of his clients. He strives to be "totally honest, professional to a T, and solution-oriented. People respond to thai- He carries with him, he says, the knowledge to solve particular problems and find better ways to make the solutions affordable. The way he does business, he says, is defined by his ethics as well as his innate ability to think as a client might think. "If I had this bank and I had this problem, w,hat do I really wish a vendor would do for me?" Another aspect of Stormer's approach is what he calls "the fun and the game" of beating the competition. "You have to have a competitive spirit," he says. And, Itse a wettn of fresh air in the serious world of computer system technology, it might be true that what serves Stormer best of all is his low-key attitude that lets him say, "I'm fun. I make it easy to do business with me." To suggest a North Hills resident for the neighbors column or to provide information, call Georgene S. GaUo at 4865389; Fax: 4864742.

He also values the gratitude implicit in "the raft of thank-you notes" he receives for his work that is so often viewed as being above and beyond the call of duty. The thanks might have come from those in a muuicipality who, with Hamper's help, designed and built a library where none had been before; or from a committee member who Rossis plan event for inner-city children By Tom O'Neill Staff writer The Rev. Rich and Sherrie Rossi, grateful they've been reunited after more than a year apart, plan to emphasize in a unique way the giving of Thanksgiving. The Rossis wiB sponsor a Citykid's Thanksgiving Pilgrimmage for underprivileged inner-city youths and their families Thursday at North Park. The couple rented space at the Ranch House along Kummer Road, where the celebration, from 11:30 a.ra. to 2:30 p.m., win feature music, Thanksgiving storytelling-and presentations by Pilgrims and Indians. Rossi, 32, has begun to re-establish his First Love Church since emerging in August from a three-month prison sentence in connection with the near-fatal beating of his wife, Sherrie, in June 1994. Rossi pleaded no contest after his first trial ended in a hung jury, with nine of the 12 jurors voting for a convictionr That's all behind them now, Rich Rossi said after the announcement of the Thanksgiving festivities.

They're businesses. The/re major resources of any municipality." And when the biggest and best libraries share their resources responsibly, when funding and programs are equalized, when the public good is served by free access to computers, books, and information, then, says Kamper, successful under all conditions, even the most adverse ones. The list of names was eventually whittled down by means of extensive phone interviews with the candidates. The result is a comprehensive look at a number of people who are ranked among the best in their respective fields, each one representing a different product or service along with a different type of salesmanship.
