Quote for today …Man-made global warming is a hoax that threatens our future and the future of our children.  Environmentalism is the new communism.” –  Vaclav Klaus, former president of the Czech Republic and all-around nutcase.

  • OPINION … Silly us … we looked at the Borough Website, hoping to see this LEGAL NOTICE posted, but alas, continued disdain for citizens.

  • A little less red at Manheim Township as reverses its stance – approaches sanity center. – Lancaster Online

  • FACT … In 2009, “Wells Fargo hit the jackpot. It was one of the first banks to get bailout funds – the biggest amount awarded in a single shot: $25 billion tax dollars.” – CBS Evening News
  • And that (above) is about this: “And in what may be one of the worst kept secrets, it is alleged that Martin and the Lancaster County Treasurer, Amber Green, have been having an affair.”
  • OPINION … Slam | “The LNP editors would rather kick someone who is down, or better yet – dead, than to take on the real local issues of the day which might offend advertisers, confront the Establishment,  lose circulation, or put the spot light on LNP ownership’s nefarious enriching its real estate interests from the public trough.” – NewsLanc
  • FACT & OPINION … At last night’s meeting, resident Sharon Lintner took the microphone to a respond to a cowardly, uninformed attempt [Our words.] to discredit her for speaking during a public comments forum at last month’s school board directors’ meeting. Seems an unnamed caller called LNP – Always Lancaster and alleged that she ought not be able to make comments because she is contracted as a correspondent to report certain Columbia meetings and news items. Lintner does not provide reports on school director’s meetings.
  • OPINION … It is cowardly for “any accuser to not face the accused with insinuations” – though not a trial, it’s oppositional to the intent of the sixth Amendment to the Constitution.
  • FACT … “Land banks are not financial institutions. They are public or community-owned entities created for a single purpose: to acquire, manage, maintain, and repurpose vacant, abandoned, and foreclosed properties –the worst abandoned houses, forgotten buildings, and empty lots.” – Land Banking 101: What is a Land Bank – A HUD document

  • FACT & OPINION … At the recent council’s first go-round on budgeting for the next fiscal year, the police department has asked for yet another police car. Probably to populate its facebook cover photo! Seems the chief wants to turn over a Chevy Blazer with 50-some thousand miles on it to the Public Works department. The public works director and the police department also seem to feel the police department needs to have at least one Gator, too.

 

  1. It is hard to believe that a building over a year old needs interior work already. Why were they not included in the original construction. It is a beautiful building,but to spend taxpayers money for improvements already needs to be explained.
