today’s news and information gleanings from here and there!

Quote for todayIf someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” – Pope Francis, who continues to surprise Catholics the world over, made international headlines this morning, saying he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation, The New York Times reported. – Harrisburg Patriot-News

  • TH spy shotThe above picture is from West Hempfield Police Department’s facebook page. “On July 26th 2013 West Hempfield Twp Police received a report of a “theft from a vehicle”, in which credit cards were stolen from an unlocked vehicle. Later that day, the stolen credit cards were used in two local convenience stores. Attached is a photo of the suspect that used the cards in the stores. The theft occurred overnight in the 300 blk of Primrose Ln Mountville, Pa. Anyone who has any knowledge of the suspect is asked to contact the West Hempfield Twp Police at #285-5191. PLEASE REMEMBER TO LOCK YOUR VEHICLES EVEN IF THEY ARE IN YOUR DRIVEWAY.” Note that this department is using all media to communicate with its citizens. You gotta’ wonder whether Turkey Hill bought cut-rate spy cameras with the lousy resolution. Any bets Columbia’s couple of dozen spy cameras are better?
  • Looks as if it’ll be bad for Columbia’s tax payers, but good for attorneys with the police chief suit and the other suit written about earlier this year: “It appears that Club Good Times has appealed    the borough’s zoning board hearing and that the appeal will be heard in court sometime later this year.”

  • Noticed West Donegal Township is having an auction to sell “unnecessary real estate owned by West Donegal Township on August 10, 2013.” Evidently there’s no CEDC in West Donegal Township.
  • More community information is appearing at the Borough Website, including this notice created by the Columbia Library:”August 6, 2013 – National Night Out 5:00pm-8:00pm – National Night Out 8 6 13 Flyer   There will be a K-9 Demonstation at 5:30 pm, The Life Lion (Helicoptor) is scheduled to appear at 7:00 pm and the Columbia Animal Hospital will offer rabies vaccination and microchip at reduced costs.”


  1. On a more serious note, Sheriff Lutz and Council knew this was coming with former Chief Greenya feeling he was short changed even though he’s been taking the taxpayer’s money for a sub-par job for the last 15 years. Sheriff Lutz protected the former chief even though many attempts were made to rid Columbia Borough of him the past 12+ years. This in itself should cause him to lose the next election. Sandy Duncan for Mayor!

    BTW…our friend Tiny was the main reason Greenya was police chief to begin with. Be sure to thank him if he ever shows up on here again

  2. One final note, in my opinion, West Donegal Twp is more than welcome to the selfish, self-serving “crooks” that comprise our CEDC if they want them!

  3. Some good points and information Watching, however, I’d be careful what you wish for in stating “Sandy Duncan for Mayor!”
