Political pundit Angst passes

By Rob Wheary, Staff

VALLEY VIEW – John W. “Bud” Angst, the Valley View man with ties to journalism, broadcasting and politics throughout several counties, passed away April 26 at the age of 93.
Angst, a former contributing editor for The Citizen-Standard, was known for his no-nonsense style of writing and was once taken to court for his editorializing on the radio by several Schuylkill County attorneys.
The story, according to his obituary, was that 17 attorneys petitioned Schuylkill County Court to hold Angst in contempt of court for every broadcast he made, a total of 475 counts of contempt.
