With the worst bridges in the nation, those allegedly managing the public's treasure sent a $16K grant to CASD where it is foolishly spent to buy Kindles and ebooks for ESL students to take home and read during the summer. Oh, no! the students cannot make use of book in public libraries. No,$16K isn't sufficent for bridge repair but it illustrates that state govt. and CASD is not a good steward of taxpayer's funds.

I agree...it's ridiculous. I would like to have a Kindle, too.

Governor Rendell knew about the bridges, and did nothing. All the Stimulus Money he received went everywhere, except to bridges; and now it's all gone!

The state rebuilt two bridges over the southern Conococheague: one at on Guitner Rd and one at Williamson.
They did not tackle the more dangerous, modified 1800's bridge on Stone Bridge Rd, where several accidents have resulted from the high speed, blind entrances to the bridge.

Corbett should fire EVERYONE at PennDOT and make them reapply for their jobs. This didn't happen overnight. A lot of people have been asleep at the switch for a long time now.

HEV- I'm no fan of "Spend it Well" Rendell, but I do think that much of the mess on our I-81 corridor, is the result of funds being spent repairing the states bridges. The funds were allocated after the tragedy in Minnesota and started prior to him leaving office.
If you want to point a finger, complain about the poor timeline and unnecessary delay, for getting the work completed.
