Give up on selling the liquor stores

If the State system is so wonderful, why is my case of 7 oz coors $15.33 in Taxylvania, but only $12.50 in Joisey, and only $11.99 in Ohio? Pa is a bloated bureaucracy. I'm all for keeping good paying jobs, but privatization would create even more jobs.  (Apr 26, 2009 | post #14)

TH Properties of Harleysville Suspends Operations: Home B...

THP, where do you start? Shoddy workmanship, using illegals, and building homes that aren't as sturdy as a house of cards. That's why "Caveat Emptor" has relevance here. The deal was true good to be true, and now the buyers are stuck. What a shame.  (Apr 22, 2009 | post #15)

BTW, no where in my original comment do I fault Ron Angle. I only give my opinion, crafted from my observations as an observer of Lehigh Valley politics, that they act equally crazy on occasion. Really, if you want to start comparing who has acted more criminally over the last decade Ron Angle or Tom Severson, Ron might lose that one. The Producers of the Law and Order TV Show could do a "Law and Order, Ron Angle", on his many interactions with law enforcement in the last decade alone. He has been arrested for Shop lifting, accused of elderly abuse, and let us not forget a radio show that excused certain white power activities! My God, already sounds like half a season right there. Maybe Ron could sell the rights!  (Apr 18, 2009 | post #18)

There O'hare goes again, God Forbid anyone have a take on the proceedings that he doesn't agree with. Attending the trial doesn't give any particular observer any special insight into how the two involved operate. Were you at the Funeral? No, but you pass judgment on what you heard or read. I make an appraisal based on what I've heard on the trial, same difference. It is a very SILLY Situation. Please quit trying to portray Ron Angle as a contestant on "THe Biggest VICTIM". I know that's your show, and you are an expert, but you aren't fooling anyone. I will never excuse Severson's behavior, I find it abhorrent, but to conveniently forget and disregard what a polarizing figure Ron is ranks as pretty disingenuous. This wasn't a great precedent setting case, but it did remind us to how our court system can end up bogged down in trivial proceedings. And stop crowing about no one being above the law, the day after our President tells interrogators they will not be held accountable. (I agree with that, btw.) America is the country where you get the best justice you can buy, period.  (Apr 18, 2009 | post #15)

I thought it was a funny tongue in cheek take that excoriated a couple of the fools who act as players in Northampton County Politics. It doesn't prove that no one is above the law, especially in Northampton County. I've heard it said privately that Severson will suffer a punishment no more harsh than that of a guy who gets parking tickets every week. Ove a year of investigation and trial theater only to have it affirmed that it is impolite to us the F Bomb at a funeral. This Morganelli had to use a special prosecutor for? Okay, I see that one, but what is his excuse for the game playing with the Woman's violence advocate? makes me wonder just what is important when it comes to "Justice. " Was this case a public service or a political one? I think Severson is nuts, but the courtroom isn't where it belonged. More like the Allentown State Hospital, for both Ron and Tom.  (Apr 18, 2009 | post #11)

Political Operative Thomas Severson Convicted of Harassin...

What a Soap opera! It could be a horror movie as well: "Children of the Slate Belt". Thousands of dollars in tax money was spent on this case, and all Mr Severson will probably get is community service. Maybe they could put him in an Orange jumpsuit and have him pick up garbage along the road by Angle's farm. Any news concerning Ron Angle is perfect fodder for reality television. A creative writer couldn't come up with better stuff that the real life adventures of Ron Angle! The funeral alone is worthy as a movie of the week on the Spike TV network  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #16)

What now for Madoff?

It just breaks my heart to see Bernie suffering in a 6 by 9 cell. NOT!  (Mar 14, 2009 | post #3)

Allentown's Seventh Street bustles

The blatant bigotry in the comments on this post is disheartening. Are you people proud of the comments you are posting here? Would you like them posted at your workplace, for your coworkers to read? Did you know an American soldier who happens to be a native of Puerto Rico is one of many awarded a medal for heroism for action in Afghanistan? Is he a **** , or an american in your eyes? To me he is an american hero. Shame on all of you.  (Jan 11, 2009 | post #26)

No title

Nice piece Dan, very informative. Though I am worried by the idea of people "demanding " DUI tests. I understand the motivation, but I can see the possibility for it to be abused.  (Jan 2, 2009 | post #9)

Velodrome plan could be challenging

Public funds are being used to support the facility. $320,000 + of our tax dollars went to resurface the track. A track that only has twelve paid racing nights in a 365 day year? That P.A. announcer is obnoxious many more nights than that. Velodrome MGT gets a great deal, because the County basically guarantees the maintenance and expenses. How would you like Government welfare for your home? Wouldn't we all? End the Free Ride, and ask them for a long term plan to make it a viable sports operation without any taxpayer support. If they can't do that, offer it for sale to private operators. If no one wants it, that should tell anyone with common business sense that private business realizes it isn't profitable. If a private concern wouldn't see it as viable, why should the taxpayers (a very large majority, especially its neighbors who despise it)have their tax dollars supporting it. I've said it before, and I will say it again. If it can stand alone without public subsidy, let it exist, but if it can't, raze it and put the property to a use for the community as a whole, not a niche of a couple dozen cycling enthusiasts and their immediate friends and families.  (Jan 1, 2009 | post #3)
