Another case of why states with right to carry (concealed firearms) have the lowest violent crime.
Beege Marshall July 24, 2014 at 10:55 pm
I take it you are referring to the doctor's right to carry his gun. His having one stopped thisRead More patient from doing further harm. As far as the patient having a gun, if this was a psych patient, the gun either wasn't his, or somehow he illegally got a permit/license if it was obtained after he began treatment for mental illness. I'm under the impression that is the case in PA law.

The decision not to increase school funding when the stimulus ended was made by the CorbettRead More administration. He chose to fully fund the prison system after the stimulus money ran out, but not public education. So, he prefers prisons over schools.
Mark Spengler July 24, 2014 at 09:42 pm
Also, Corbett cut state funding having nothing to do with Fed. stimulus money Here’s $520.5Read More million in Pennsylvania school funding budget lines that existed pre-ARRA/stimulus (FY 2008-2009) that no longer exist: High School Reform $ 10.7 million eliminated Accountability Block Grant $171.4 million reduction Tutoring $ 65.1 million eliminated Dual Enrollment $ 10.0 million eliminated Science: It’s Elementary $ 13.6 million eliminated School Improvement Grants $ 22.8 million eliminated Charter School Reimbursement $226.9 million eliminated Key Education Subsidies Chart FY2006-07 thru 2012-13 http://keystonestateeducationcoalition.blogspot.com/2013/08/pennsylvania-education-policy-roundup_22.html

By the way, Corbett admitted to cutting state funding for Education: Today, after touring Mt. JoyRead More Wire to see that 130-person business, the governor was asked if the $429 million in lost state funding for schools compared to last year, meant he "cut education funding the state used to give?" He responded: "We reduced education if you a take a look at it as a whole. - See more at: http://www.psba.org/news-publications/headlines/details.asp?id=2382#sthash.ChjzrG7n.dpuf

That is a total joke. Why do they have to raise the speed limit when people go 75-85 mph now? ThereRead More is virtually no enforcement now for speeders and there will be no enforcement when the limit changes.

It's all about the newer gas burners that don't burn up so much . Remember the 55 MPH limit . ItRead More reduced road deaths and saved gas . I think that was the purpose of the 55 mph . I-78 should be renamed to Heavens Highway .

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.

Facts first! Rural interstates account for less than 5% of Pennsylvania's traffic deaths. With aRead More fatality rate of 0.60, rural interstates are the safest rural roads in the state -- the state-wide rural rate is 3.72 deaths per 100-million-travel-miles -- over six times higher!
William Keyser July 20, 2014 at 10:08 am
It was recently posed that speed limits were just revenue generators. I say drop the speed limitsRead More altogether and have police enforce safe driving by discretion.
Pam July 20, 2014 at 10:17 am
I've noticed that other states like Arizona, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, etc have theirRead More posted speed limits appropriate to the road conditions. On limited access highways (theirs tend to be a spacious 4-8 lanes) the speed limit is 85mph & 75mph on major roads. Good drivers know that this is 'maximum' assumes dry road conditions & good visibility. For limited access roads this is a blessing. Mountain passes, hairpin curves, and severe sloped grades are a different story and might be 25mph or less. Cut to PA limited access highways: tons of congestion and bottlenecks, typical 2-4 lanes except of rt95 and some parts of the PA turnpike, slower speed limits, and more people commuting. It's not hard to see why 'rush hour' in PA is all about sitting in traffic NOT moving. 'Rush hour' in AZ is not a congested mess, there are lots of people and the traffic moves great ! Our PA roads are small and designed poorly for traffic flow and speed. Take the new rt202 bypass through Doylestown to Montgomeryville, feeder roads are posted higher than the limited access road (45mph)-how is that NOT a bottleneck? Raising the speed limit on major PA limited access roads helps alleviate congestion. I wouldn't do this with every PA road, but the turnpike is a good start.
