A second quote … “We must act quickly to bring relief to the American people.’’  – Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell in this Boston Globe article: Senate ready to start taking apart Affordable Care Act.” | With or without a replacement plan?

  • Yesterday’s ice was a big problem – though the Columbia Police Department did caution folks at its facebook page Columbia Borough School District did not announce a delay to the chagrin of many parents. Many other school districts did have delays or cancelations. Here’s one comment from a string at What’s happening at Columbia PA and area facebook page: “This is crazy, children falling.

  • What a good idea! | Noticed that Denver borough appointed a “junior councillor” – a high school student to attend the first council meeting of each month.



  1. Park City caters to young buyers with inexpensive, trendy clothing. So of course it is a teen hangout. Being on the bus route adds to that problem. The anchor stores like Boscovs, Bon Ton, JC Penney, and Sears are boring. Same old items, offering very little in the way of unique. Lancaster County styles aimed at seniors. What’s left for the boomers with money to spend? All the little stands in each wing with sales people annoying shoppers. No reason to shop there anymore.

  2. Wonder which store(s) will hone in on the Kmart Fruitville Pike site when it’s closed? Target?

    In Lebanon, there’s site activity at the closed Sears store; it didn’t take long for that to happen.
