I don’t know the answer to David’s question, but I should identify the men in the picture with Paul. They are two of his friends and former colleagues from the time Paul did some PR work for the Ohio Turnpike Commission: Allan Johnson, retired Executive Director, and Louis Disantis, retired Director of Administrative Services.
During the ceremony, mention was made of Paul’s popularity as perhaps Cleveland’s first investigative TV reporter, and how he is now in his 19th year as head of the monthly newspaper LA GAZZETTA ITALIANA, serving the Italian-American community. He was inducted into the Cleveland International Hall of Fame by well-known civic leader and former chairman of the Ohio Turnpike Commission, Umberto Fedeli. Some of the other 12 inductees included Sen. George Voinovich; Margaret Wong, prominent immigration attorney; Alex Machaskee, retired Plain Dealer Publisher; Leo Weidenthal (posthumous), former Plain Dealer city hall reporter and founder of the Jewish Independent newspaper; and Dr. Dieu Thuc Do, a physician who immigrated to the U.S. in 1975 and is active among the Vietnamese here.

“Pauly” and I worked together for a couple of years starting in 1969 when I joined Channel 3 and continued on friendly terms after we both left. One of my fond recalls of Pauly was his having quit smoking at the time I met him: that is, he’d quit smoking his OWN cigarettes. I think it was fellow newscaster Tom Carson who warned me, jokingly, to hide my cigarettes when Pauly was around. I never did: and I can still hear his, “Hey, Billy, got a cigarette?” ( Hey, Pauly, if you’re reading this, I quit twenty years ago.)
Haven’t spoken to him in many years, but still consider him
a friend.The man is a class act.
