03/05/06 - Bradford Master Plan Team Holds Forum
The Bradford Master Plan team held a public form Wednesday, and Albert Filoni told people that the team is not trying to bring Bradford back to its glory days, but they are trying to bring about a resurgence. Among the issues discussed were housing, zoning and economic development. Another issue was the attitude of people in the area – which the team says needs to improve because Bradford isn't as bad as some people perceive it to be. Also, Joe Warner of Bradford Online said getting people back to downtown Bradford could be as simple as putting up a sign. Everyone at the meeting seemed to agree that a sign coming out of Wal-Mart, directing people downtown is a great idea. (Pictured is Albert Filoni of MacLachlan, Cornelius & Filoni Architects)

03/05/08 - Rendell: PA Voters Ready to be Heard
Governor Ed Rendell, who has endorsed Hillary Clinton in the presidential race, says the people of Pennsylvania are focused on the two largest issues facing the country – the state of our economy and national security. He says Pennsylvanians look forward to making their voices heard and playing their part in determining the Democratic nomination. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey says he won't endorse either candidate before the primary. He is a superdelegate, meaning he can cast a vote for anyone. Obama and Clinton campaigned for Casey in his 2006 race against Republican incumbent Rick Santorum. So did Clinton's husband, former president Bill Clinton. The primary is April 22.

Another chicken story ....

The 85 chickens released as a prank in Philadelphia's Northeast High School have a new home -- Fox Chase Farm, the district's agricultural school. Northeast High workers came in several weeks ago to find the hens and roosters flocking through the halls. Most students were sent home for the day, and the district spent about $5,000 cleaning up droppings and chicken feed. Weeks later people at the school are still telling chicken jokes. An example: "Why were the chickens on the second floor? They wanted higher learning."

03/03/08 - Supreme Court Rejects Rigas Final Appeal
Adelphia Communications founder John Rigas and his son, Timothy, have lost their final appeal of their convictions for fraud that led to the collapse of the nation's fifth-largest cable television company. The Supreme Court rejected the appeal without comment this morning. 83-year-old John Rigas is serving a 15-year prison term, while his son, the former chief financial officer, was sentenced to 20 years in prison on charges of securities fraud, conspiracy to commit bank fraud and bank fraud. Federal investigators began looking at Adelphia after it said in a footnote to a press release in 2002 that the company had $2.2 billion in off-balance sheet debt.

This is not an endorsement of a candidate, or even of my favorite actor. I just think the video is clever.
