Today’s quote … “Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!”widely quoted paraphrase of a line of dialogue from the 1948 film “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.” | What if the line read: “Ethics? We don’t need no stinkin’ ethics?”

Another quote for today … ” … though they are the best in the world, of course.” – Russian President Vladimir Putin claims Russia’s got the best.The Telegraph, London

A most frightening third quote for today … “Jawohl!” – Björn Höcke in a beerhall rally in Germany from this New York Times article.


  • The Regularly scheduled Monthly School Board Meeting is scheduled for tonight:: [7:00PM-8:00PM]  @  District Administration Center, 200 N. Fifth Street, Columbia, PA 17512. Click here to see the agenda.


  1. Scheduled for 7pm-8pm? Is that for the student recognition portion? This is a scheduled meeting to begin at 7:00 p.m. however the meeting does not begin until at least 7:45 p.m. and should be advertised as such. Of course it’s great that Columbia teachers recognize student achievement, no one will argue that. This recognition is not part of a board meeting and should not be included. If the board members want to witness this, let them take a trip to the school and have the recognition ceremony in the auditorium. I would like to see how many board members would show up. The start time of the actual meeting needs to be corrected to 8:00 p.m. allowing for pictures and chatting.
