After seeing more home pages and trying to appreciate the
power of this medium this is a major addition to my home page. I started out
trying to compile lists but realized that such a course only reflects myself by
the content of other people's work. I am going to take a stab at including some
text to express a little more about my life. I must give partial credit for the
motivation for this change to the home page of
Ken Huffman which I
Now the dreaded biography follows. I was born in October of
1949 to Chester and Dorothy Scholl in Sharon, Pa. After a few excursions from
here in my passage through schools I ended back here in Hermitage, Pa.
In fact I really am Chester but due to my mother's desire
not to have a "Jr" or "sonny" running around I ended up
being called Barney as a derivative of my middle name of Barnhart. I have one
sister, Ellen, who also lives in the area.
My education after Sharon High School included a tour of
four colleges. After three semesters at
Grove City College I ended up
with a degree in Systems Analysis from The
University of Miami. The trip
included short visits to Youngstown State University and
Allegheny College. At that
point in history there were not an abundance of technical jobs so I decide to
follow my father's footsteps and went to
Dickinson School of Law.
After passing the Pennsylvania Bar exam I returned to Sharon
and finally became a partner in the firm of Fruit, Dill,
Goodwin & Scholl. Not only was I working with my father but ultimately
we ended up with three father son combinations.
My life has progressed rather sedately with my free time
spent in a few community organizations, the
Presbyterian church and a few
sports. Some of the community groups that I have helped develop web sites for
include the Kiwanis Club of Sharon and the
Warehouse. The world of internet seems to be taking up more and more time.
The time spent with the merlink project seems to leave less and less time for
skiing and bicycling. The skiing is more often done in
the winter but the water type of skis are used every once in a while.
My interest in computers started in my early childhood when
I tried to figure out how electric trains worked. From controlling trains my
interest passed on to Amateur Radio as K3ZFP and later K3LA, before the micro
computer developed. From there it was an easy passage to computers as micro
computers progressed from TRS-80 onward to these current boxes that do almost
The cultural side of my life has been filed with jazz,
classical and folk music with regular trips to the
Symphony and a few other miscellaneous stops at musical performances and
Since I have never been married I would like to have a cat
or two for company, but since I am not around much I have had to find a few
cats hanging around. Until I develop some more photographs to display you will

I will try to update portions of this page as the events of
my life encourage and allow changes to take place. Plus as you can see from my
home page there are still the dreaded lists so that
can draw your own conclusions. Please take a moment to drop me a
note and tell me
what you think. I am not willing to say that all your comments will be
followed, but at least I will get some e-mail.

children who all were born here in western Pennsylvania. I am going to try to
develop a separate space that family members can check regularly and view the
