Another case of why states with right to carry (concealed firearms) have the lowest violent crime.
Beege Marshall July 24, 2014 at 10:55 pm
I take it you are referring to the doctor's right to carry his gun. His having one stopped thisRead More patient from doing further harm. As far as the patient having a gun, if this was a psych patient, the gun either wasn't his, or somehow he illegally got a permit/license if it was obtained after he began treatment for mental illness. I'm under the impression that is the case in PA law.

Editor - take a look at the caption under the first photo ("A literal ____-storm"). NiceRead More catch.

Seriously ...this is a family publication and you let a profanity slip by in the very firstRead More photo....pathetic...

I was hoping one of the pictures would be of the incredible lightning during that storm! (P.S.Read More 1:27 pm and the profanity is gone.)

The decision not to increase school funding when the stimulus ended was made by the CorbettRead More administration. He chose to fully fund the prison system after the stimulus money ran out, but not public education. So, he prefers prisons over schools.
Mark Spengler July 24, 2014 at 09:42 pm
Also, Corbett cut state funding having nothing to do with Fed. stimulus money Here’s $520.5Read More million in Pennsylvania school funding budget lines that existed pre-ARRA/stimulus (FY 2008-2009) that no longer exist: High School Reform $ 10.7 million eliminated Accountability Block Grant $171.4 million reduction Tutoring $ 65.1 million eliminated Dual Enrollment $ 10.0 million eliminated Science: It’s Elementary $ 13.6 million eliminated School Improvement Grants $ 22.8 million eliminated Charter School Reimbursement $226.9 million eliminated Key Education Subsidies Chart FY2006-07 thru 2012-13 http://keystonestateeducationcoalition.blogspot.com/2013/08/pennsylvania-education-policy-roundup_22.html

By the way, Corbett admitted to cutting state funding for Education: Today, after touring Mt. JoyRead More Wire to see that 130-person business, the governor was asked if the $429 million in lost state funding for schools compared to last year, meant he "cut education funding the state used to give?" He responded: "We reduced education if you a take a look at it as a whole. - See more at: http://www.psba.org/news-publications/headlines/details.asp?id=2382#sthash.ChjzrG7n.dpuf

The 5th amendment reads as follows: "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, orRead More otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation" The owners will be justly compensated for the property, thus eminent domain is completely constitutional. As far as voting out the school board, you need people to run against them. The last vote had one non-incumbent member running at most only one would have been voted out. For all the complaining about the school board, I don't see many people running to get them out.
Kirk E Coats July 24, 2014 at 05:54 pm
And please raise my property taxes again to pay for all this expansion. I'm getting mighty tired ofRead More living in a house with its responsibilities when I could be living on the street and collecting welfare, oh, public assistance.

That is a total joke. Why do they have to raise the speed limit when people go 75-85 mph now? ThereRead More is virtually no enforcement now for speeders and there will be no enforcement when the limit changes.
Bob Lentz July 24, 2014 at 11:22 am
It's all about the newer gas burners that don't burn up so much . Remember the 55 MPH limit . ItRead More reduced road deaths and saved gas . I think that was the purpose of the 55 mph . I-78 should be renamed to Heavens Highway .

J Robins July 23, 2014 at 08:37 am
@henryeroh that is an ignorant statement only a hateful person would make. As a member of theRead More community you supposedly want to get rid of, I am sad for you. I hope that you can learn to look past whatever made you this way because it is a terrible and lonely way to live.
kelly.anne.farrell July 24, 2014 at 08:36 pm
OK, your business failed. Sorry. Why leave poor, defenseless animals to die, especially in thisRead More heat!!! No conscience?!?

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.
PS July 24, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Let's be realistic, those who are "unaware" probably aren't the people buying organic inRead More the first place. Lay off Kara - she's the only reason the patch is any good!
Pamela McCarthy July 22, 2014 at 08:53 am
They need to expand to more states! Just got back from the Berkshires in MA...terrible not beingRead More able to find a Wawa when you need one!

What the hell is a "magazine clip"? Semi-automatic pistols use a magazine. Technically,Read More it's called a box magazine. Clips are completely DIFFERENT!! http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_RYwUPr35rLw/SMSzcYalaPI/AAAAAAAAAM4/pgTUU7jUlFo/s1600-h/Magazine+-+vs+-+Clip.jpg
