Today’s news … Thursday, September 29, 2016

Today’s news and information gleanings … from here and there!

Today’s quote …The whole process of government, as he views it, is simply a process of promoting his private advantage. He can imagine no good save his own good.”   – H.L. Mencken, Democratic Man. [The quote is the opening line from this piece sent by a Columbia news, views & reviews reader: “It’s Over (Again); Stop Worrying (Again): D. Trump, The Virtuous Clod-Hopper”]-

A second quote: “I am not sure who won, but I know who lost: the American people.” – A quote from Timothy Opinaldo, of Lancaster/Facebook, according to an LNP – Always Lancaster editorial page “Other Opinions: Clinton vs. Trump” blurb.

Another American Tragedy“Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.” – Thomas JeffersontribOne of Pittsburgh’s two major daily newspapers, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, will cease printing and distributing on Nov. 30, and will become a digital-only edition. (Margaret J. Krauss/Keystone Crossroads)”

  • For those operating in another era or mindset – [SPECIAL NOTE: The publication ” will become digital-only!”]

  • Nope; ain’t gonna’ do it! The county’s top elected public servants have told the Barnstormers the county cannot be their bank; “‘The county doesn’t have that kind of excess capacity,’ Commissioner Josh Parsons said,” in an article in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.
  • Communication confusion continues in Columbia!!! Think people are confused? | Happened across this facebook page which is “an unofficial Page … created because people on Facebook have shown interest in this place of business. It’s not affiliated with or endorsed by anyone associated with Columbia River Park.” Yet, it links to the Columbia Borough Website. Columbia Crossing has a page too. It is an official page that links to Susquehanna Heritage : 501(c)3 non-profit corporation .
