  6. Editorials from around PennsylvaniaRead the original story

    Tuesday Nov 25 | Lewistown Sentinel

    The Issue: Pennsylvania officials will be getting raises aimed at keeping up with the cost of living - boosts in pay that range from $1,300 effective Dec. 1 for rank-and-file lawmakers to $3,000 effective Jan. 1 for Gov. Tom Corbett. The populist question comes quickly: Why are state officials in Harrisburg getting any kind of raise, given the job they're doing? Our lawmakers and the Corbett administration have failed to address major issues such as the $50 billion gap between the assets and liabilities in the state's two pension systems, privatizing or at least improving state liquor stores, and finding a way to adequately fund public schools without continuing to shift the burden to local property tax payers.

  9. Court panel recommends changes to protect seniorsRead the original story

    Nov 17, 2014 | Lewistown Sentinel

    A panel appointed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court recommended dozens of changes Monday to help older people interact with the courts and strengthen laws designed to protect them from financial or physical abuse. "If societies are judged on how they help their most vulnerable, now is the time to craft solutions as older Pennsylvanians face physical, emotional and financial abuses," said Chief Justice of Pennsylvania Ronald D. Castille, who is leaving the court at the end of the year because he has reached the mandatory retirement age of 70. Among the proposals by the 38-member Elder Law Task Force are modifications of court rules to require mandatory training and criminal background checks for prospective guardians.
