President Reagan said it | “Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.”

Not a surprise | “In areas where local news sources have gone out of business, there’s evidence that local governments become less efficient and waste more tax dollars.”WikiTribune

Didn’t happen in 2015 | A PA House Bill that would have added a chapter to existing legal advertising legislation did not pass. That new chapter, “Electronic Legal Advertising”, would have provided a way for municipalities to add digital legal advertising to Websites. IF certain Website conditions were met. Curiously, the bill DID NOT ALTER the state law that requires legal advertising to be published in a publication of general circulation.

If the objective of legal ads … | really is transparency, rather than just having to publish just to comply with the law, some municipalities will really have to step up their game to comply with intended, revised laws.

Page one article in LNP – Always Lancaster | Columbia teachers will get “3.15 percent salary increase per year under a new, five-year collective bargaining agreement with the Columbia Education Association.”

  1. Except for sin itself, there is nothing better than a big plate of crabby fries at the Wrightsville Inn. The lump crab comes close.

  2. Another good place is A Touch of Italy in Hallam (Hellam?) Nothing fancy but good homemade Italian food. Friday or Saturday night when Joe is there is a great time for pizza.
