Mayor Pete should concentrate on getting the illustrious Hispanic Center to pay the back taxes owed.

Must be a slow day when the biggest editorial in the PO is about a woodchuck.

Much ado about nothing. Get over it.

Agree, really, this is what the PO editorial is? Why is anyone concerned about this. The mayor makes a comment while promoting Cburgs events and people feel the need to respond and now an Editorial. I predict the PO paper size will get even smaller maybe a 8.5 X 11 if this is what people are paying for.

I have never been to the ice fest in Chambersburg even though I don't live that far away. If I have a choice , I would go to Punxsutawey . We have a obnoxious politician here ; I don't need to wast my time visiting Chambersburg's obnoxious politician. ( Ours is not the Mayor )

I've been to Punxatawney for the groundhog thing. It looked like an excuse for people to get drunk. I'd never take my kids there. Ice Fest if far superior for families.

Good Heavens! Have we degenerated to having to be concerned about comments made about an overweight rat?? I shoot them on sight.
Surely there are more pressing issues, in this town, that warrant attention by this so-called NEWS media.
Who CARES about comments made about a rodent used for another Pennsylvania town to promote themselves? If your only claim to fame is a big rat, than you are in a sorry state of affairs.

GEEZ! Get a life, people!

I must agree with those shocked (among other reactions) by the uproar over the mayor's remarks and Punxatawney's reaction. While I may not necessarily see the humor in what the mayor said, the reaction from Punxatawney borders on ridiculous and the P.O. editorial is not far behind. What a waste of time and column space.

King Pete needs to be retired from his position.
What a piece of work.

Please do the right thing and simply abdicate your Throne.

Mayor Pete SPOKE?

Gee, I'm surprised and shocked he didn't deliver his message in Spanish.

Afterall, did he have an interprator for the estimated 2,500 ILLEGALS he allows to live in our town??

* population estimated by the local Hispanic Center and others.

A blog that started out about a mayor and a groundhog somehow got to how many hispanic people live in Chambersburg and blaming the mayor for it - like he went and stood along 81 to invite them here.

Take a little responsibility for it: They wouldn't be here unless there was opportunities (jobs) for them; if all you complainers were working at those jobs there would be no reason for them to be staying around. Those apples aren't going to pick themselves, you know....
