That's funny because I've never had an issue with them when I needed things done through the township. Things seem to be done by the letter of the law in Mahoning and the commissioners(both GO & dumb and dumber) don't like it since the good ole boy network doesn't work for them. If they did what the code says, then it would get approved, however, they refuse to do what they are supposed to do.

Correct me if I'm wrong... Mahoning Twsp is being sued by its ex police chief on 2 different grounds one of which is for the brilliant announcement they made in the Times News that he was sueing them basically ending his career as no othee town will hire him. there is a guy from lehigh valley sueing for mistreatment while being detained, a female cop got reinstated after she filed charges for discrimination, and now the county. Thats 5 lawsuits in 2012. Im not saying any are or are not valid. I'm saying it seems like they might have some issues.

Good one GUMID!The exact title of this blog is "what is happening with carbon county politics" and the hub of the politics is the court house.Anita needs to find a more liquifying blog to satisfy her taste.

<quoted text>Hey Shirley your boys were screwing around with that place for over 8 years before they got their asses whooped. These guys are in for a little over a year. Dumb ? They won didn't they ? It ain't over yet. You're upset because your boys couldn't do anything and you don't want to see this group achieve any success no matter what they end up doing. At least they are trying to do something while your big mouth boys sat on it for how long. We will see in the end now won't we.
I'm an independent who didn't vote for the guys you call "my boys". You have a habit of doing that in response to a lot of posts in here under the many names you use there coward. And it just goes to show you how dumb the voting public is to put "your boys" in there. And I love how they are doing something...... raising out taxes through the roof.

You are as much an independent as much as O'
Gurek,Sr. won the election. I have alot of habits but I don't use different names like you do. Not many posts come out of Summit Hill. Not like you live in Summit Hill. I'm betting one of the other valley towns where there is a different type hill.

Could comeback. Maybe you could bottle your sarcasm and stupidity and sell it. Give your earnings to your boys to help pay for the tax increase.

Did anyone else see the article in the paper about the Mahoning Township supervisors? Good for them going after our moronic commissioners for trying to blame everything on the county's failure to make Packerton Yards work!

The Mahoning Twsp Supervisors are a mess, they almost always make a big deal out of nothing and vice versa. How many lawsuits does it take against the twnsp?

How good is it for the county republicans that the old party women are all over the front page of the Times News. Every time the get their picture in the paper another democrat converts. Smile.

To be clear on last comment. Yesterdays Times News. The dem party elders looked silly. Such small minds can't see 3 feet past the coke bottle glasses and realize their Obamacare will consume all their protested requests. Poor things.

Did anyone else see the letter to the editor about Packerton Yards in Saturdays TN? If that was an accurate depiction of what is going on with Packerton Yards, then our commissioners are all morons.

A light in that dip is insanity. That would be a traffic nightmare, especially for all of the people that work down towards the Lehigh Valley which have to commute through there every day.

I had a different take on that, as I understood the article, they were protesting cuts in medicare and social security. In this county, I think that is significant for the steady voters. More likely, I think, that the regular voters will be warm to that. I doubt that will convert anybody.

Actually those elderly ladies are part of the old guard which has been getting its butt handed to it. They havent supported a winner or won a local precinct in 3 years. People are just sick of them. So I was only sort of acting tongue and cheek. With those mean old ladies and McCall's supportvpoor Cathy Wildoner and Justin Yaich stood no chance.

From What I hear the Dems are scrambling to find someone willing to run for comish in two years not really concerened with the upcomming row offices. No one really wants to put their names out there now because of the screwing the e-board gave the dems with the appointment. It's really going to be interesting to see who wants to get it chopped off by a rep challenger.
