Today’s Quote …Come to a School Board meeting and find out for yourself.” – Comment from Randolph Carney, School District of Lancaster board of directors member, following this Lancaster Online article: “Auditor General to launch fiscal probe of Manheim Township schools in October.”

Another quote … “My favorite poem is the one that starts ‘Thirty days hath September’ because it actually tells you something.” – Groucho Marx [Sadly, today is the last day of September – wow, the year has sped by.]

Earlier this week …


What’s with the reports at facebook pages about the nighttime unexplained loud “exploding-sounding” noises in town?

  • “Did anybody here a rather loud sounding like a gun shot around locust street a few min ago.”
  • What ever it was it was loud my ears still hurt
  • Heard it on 100 block south 6th st. Also saw a flash of orange looking down towards 5 th st.
  • I heard it on second and Walnut where I live
  • Same thing happened over around 11th and central last night about 10pm



Get any annoying calls lately?

The persistent barrage of annoying telephone really adds to the disconnectedness of America.

It really doesn’t seem to matter whether we’ve registered out telephone number(s) with the Pennsylvania or United States DO NOT CALL REGISTRIES – the annoying spam calls continue at an increasing rate.

How many times have you received this annoying recorded call from this really annoying voice?

Notice the calls come from different phone numbers; our CALLER ID showed this number 667.308.9519. A few days ago, this number 717-524-1881.

We know that the scammers, spammers and friggin’ crooks are out there spoofing and scamming; why don’t our elected public servants really do some good for a change.

Dunno’ know about you, but we never answer any calls – we let them go to voice mail. 

Hey, phone companies, maybe you should insist that the elected public servants you’re buying should do something too. What will happen when people just weary so much about this that they just cancel their landline phone service?

While “The government is not releasing cell phone numbers to telemarketers,” surely that’ll happen in time.



What’d you do this summer?
