    In SC you don't have to announce, but I will tell you this... His first purchase will be a sizable chunk of property in the PA mountains. Keep your eyes open for: 1. An official change to the name of the town. I think you know where I'm going here. 2. Olive Garden HQ being moved to said area, boosting the local economy, creating jobs, and supplying all residents with endless breadsticks 3. Tougher jail sentences for restaurants not following strict sandwich stacking structure, and a zero tolerance policy on those who continue to put hot dogs in the sandwich portion of the menu. 4. All shopping carts will be equipped with GPS, delivering a non-lethal shock to anyone taking them outside boundaries set by the business of origin 5. All intersections will become roundabouts 6. Treasure Lake will also be purchased, all structures removed, and the entire property will be turned into one giant baseball complex with striped artificial turf 7. Steve Pompeii will be offered the sum of 1.7 million dollars for the rights to the GoDooBwa debate forum. Anyone who cares to join will be encouraged to do so, including past members. There will be no moderation, no swear filter, and anyone who reports someone else being naughty will have "crybaby" added to their username and avatar. Stay tuned

    A rant

    To drivers of all ages and all types of vehicles, from cars, motorcycles, big & small trucks and bicycles: please GET OFF YOUR PHONES. Also learn to use your turn signals or hand signals, move forward at stop lights when the light changes and basically learn to drive we are all supposed to! Get your heads out of your azz! That's all, back to the regularly scheduled arguments between the same characters to seem to go on and on.

    Restrooms at DuBois High

    born with a penis and still have one use the boys restroom. born with a vagina and still have one use the girls restroom. what the hell is so hard about that. why should taxpayers have to pay to have more restrooms installed. You want to be gay, bi, identify as transgender or mutant alien that is your choice but you can still use the restroom for the equipment you have in your pants.

    Why do you have such a terrible outlook on life? I used to be that way, but I started going to church. I forgave people who hurt me emotionally. I lost my son in a car accident in December. He burned up alive. I have a granddaughter who was born with Trisomy 18, non- compatible with life in January. Everyday is a miracle she is still here. Look for the good things around you by opening your eyes, & closing your mouth!! You just might be surprised by what you see!!

    Not to long ago I had a fire at my home. No one was injured but just added another headache on top of what has been a very chaotic and expensive past few months. Anyway the fire was discovered I grabbed the fire extinguisher my son had bought and that knocked most of the flames down including the ones on the roof joists and top plate of the wall. We then used pots and buckets of water until the fire dept arrived which by then it was mostly out. If I would not have had that fire extinguisher the house would have mostly likely been a total loss or close to it. So go out and buy a fire extinguisher. They are only around $20 for small ones like the one I used. So for $20 it could mean the difference between life and death. We went out to Ace and bought two this time around. we keep one under the sink where the last one was and the other one will be hanging in the garage.

    Today Faith Marie is 1 month old. ❤️ 🙏🏻 ❤️ We are told that her odds of making it to a yr old go up if she made it to a month old. I say she has the same odds as the rest of us. When God calls us home, we go.

    Electric Wheelchair Needed for Veteran

    I got a call from one of the GoDuBoisers. I think you can always count on someone here helping. If the wheelchair she has will fit the guy and it works, then the problem is solved and will stay solved according to the VFW here. They've been having their own problems there but they will do the best they can. They need some goals to help more individual veterans. People think the VA either doesn't help at all or they cover everything a seriously crippled vet needs. Neither one is true. The potential and the ideal exists, but something isn't meshing. This guy should never have fallen through the cracks, and something as simple as an electric wheelchair could have made his life so much more liveable. He's been from hospital to nursing home, to rehab and back through everything again....all without a usable wheelchair. He is highly educated, retired from the military, taught others for years, was active in the community, and still can't get an electric wheelchair. His poor wife has been pushing him everywhere in a regular wheelchair and I think she's totally exhausted by trying to help her husband get around. She's not a big hefty woman, but he was always a tall strong man. Out of the blue he had a stroke, and it was a bad one. He has not been able to get around for a couple of years at least. He wants to teach again and help people, but can't, and he's so depressed. I think this may be a key to helping him get the best out of his coming years. I hope the donor will identify herself. She deserves a huge group hug just for making the offer. I hope it works out.

    Meet my granddaughter Faith Marie

    Yesterday was Faith Marie’s 8th month birthday. She is 13# & 24 1/2” long. She loves most baby foods, loves to “talk”, & knows who is talking to her. She has been learning so much stuff this past month. Her appt in Pitts went well, so well in fact, the Drs said that Faith would live past her 1st birthday. With all the prayers this little girl has in our area, state, and country, God hears them, and He has healed most of the problems she was born with! Thank you Jesus!!

    I finally got to meet Bon and Spawn of Bon (Brandi) for the Wedding reception on Saturday. I had a good time DJing the reception and I'd like to say thank you to their family for being so kind. I was so glad to be apart of their special day. Their little peanut "Faith" is such an angel. (God Bless Her)

    Amish man sexually abuses daughters

    I TOTALLY disagree. Intimately touching innocent children and making them touch him is abhorrent! He robbed them of their innocence and made them fearful to be around him. NO child should be subjected to that! We're talking about CHILDREN who had NO sexual experience until their FATHER introduced them to it. He's certainly not getting kudos from me for not having intercourse. ANY and ALL sexual contact between an adult and a child is deplorable and should be punished accordingly.

    Joint Municipal Building

    Petee, I truly wish I could understand your objection to these two entities sharing a building. There are soooo many businesses who share buildings. Every office building in the world is by definition businesses sharing a building. This is the absolute babiest of baby steps towards the two communities working together possible AND it would save ALL of the tax payers money by sharing the cost of the building itself and the building’s upkeep. Also it would surely make it easier for these two entities to work together on the things they already work together on just by virtue of being in the same location. And if perchance, in some far off magical time when the citizens and the powers that be in our communities finally figure out we have more cause to work together than to fight each other at every turn, some systems may be consolidated into one. Another savings to the taxpayers. Wow. What a concept.

    Talked to the realtor, we close in 30 days. Before the reign of terror begins, I am putting the first major change up for a vote. As loyal members of this forum, each and every one of you have a say in the first major change to be enacted in DooBwa, which is now officially the name of the town. 1. The Elmer App, which utilizes Jaman's Amish buggies for transportation 2. The banishment of multiple bathrooms in all public facilities, to be replaced with a curtain and a 5 gallon bucket. 3. A 50,000 square foot Victoria's Secret carrying sizes found on any BINGO card, no questions asked 4. A cemetery with headstones for all the stores that used to be in the mall 5. Segregated bars, one for conservatives and one for conman 6. A restaurant that only serves whatever was posted the previous day on the "What's for dinner" thread 7. A bronze statue of Steve Pompeii, but in the pose of the statue from Rocky III

    Advanced Disposal Landfill Collapse

    This is the time of year where we give our PowerPoint presentations to the big wheels, show them what changes we have made that are going to make us better the following year. I have an entire slide devoted to one topic. We were finally allowed to make drastic cuts in one specific area, and after only 8 months there is a noticeable difference in not only stability, but also a reduction in costs associated with the after effects of that material once it is placed in the landfill. These changes were not made just at my site, but were mandatory nationwide, with severe penalties for anyone violating the new policies. It will never be said out loud, but there is not a doubt in my mind that the ripples that caused these changes originated from a little mountain town in PA. Thank you for making noise

    Pizza Pizza

    Grilling a frozen pizza gives frozen pizza a great grilled flavor. Making your own will ruin you. No kidding, I gained 20lbs in two months after I learned how to make them. The first one was good, and I didn't know what I was doing. Now there isn't a pizza place within 50 miles that even comes close. Heres my favorite recipe: dough Cantadina tomato sauce Canadian bacon Spicy Italian sausage (I cook mine on the gas grill before making the pizza) Sauteed mushrooms 3 cheeses: provolone, mozzarella, and grated Parmesan Basil leaves, shredded or torn Heat the grill to 450-500 degrees. I like to use a lot of charcoal, covering almost all of the lower grate. Preheat the stone for 8-10 minutes. Lift the lid, sprinkle corn meal all over the stone, then lay the dough on the stone. Close the lid and cook for 2 minutes, while the dough is cooking sprinkle a little corn meal on the peel. After 2 minutes take the dough off and flip it over on the peel, toasted side up. Close the lid on the grill while topping the pizza to retain heat. Spread tomato sauce on the dough to taste. I like my toppings under the cheese, so I add Canadian bacon, sausage, mushrooms, provolone, mozzarella, grated Parmesan, then top with fresh basil leaves in that order. Only that order Remove the lid, sprinkle the stone with corn meal again, slide the pizza back onto the stone, and close the lid. Cooking time is usually 6-8 minutes depending on the temperature of the grill. 400 degrees or higher is best, but it will work down to 350, the crust just won't be as light and crispy. I start checking with a spatula at about 5 and a half minutes. I want the bottom brown, verging on turning black. The roasting corn meal gives the dough a wonderful flavor. Remove from heat, slice, and enjoy. Serves 2 normal people, or one fatazz redneck. Time to complete, from beginning to end, is approximately 3 margaritas

    Pat Catans

    DuBois Courier Express reports: Area crafters will be happy to know that the Pat Catan's Craft Center in DuBois will become a new Michaels store by late summer, according to The Michaels Companies Public Relations Manager Mallory Smith. "We can confirm that after a comprehensive review, we have identified DuBois, Pa., as one of the 12 Pat Catan's locations that we intend to rebrand and reopen as new Michaels stores later this year," said Smith. "We look forward to reopening and inspiring the DuBois community to unleash their inner maker." Smith said she expects the store to begin the conversion process around June 22 and reopen as a Michaels store in mid to late August. The DuBois store, which is located in the DuBois Commons, near Lowe’s, opened Aug. 31, 2017. The Sandy Township Pat Catan’s initially faced an uncertain future after its parent company, Michaels, announced in late January that all 36 locations in Ohio and surrounding states would close, and no more than 12 would reopen as Michaels stores. There are a total of 36 Pat Catan’s stores in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia and Indiana. The local store employs about 33 people, both part- and full-time. Like Pat Catan’s, Michaels also offers a large selection of craft, hobby, floral and art supplies.

    When this is all settled we will still not know all of the real facts. Most of what the public thinks we know will be based on information repeated numerous times by people who can't stop themselves from repeating things they heard vs things they actually know. It's human nature and small town gossip at its worst.

    I do have an open mind. I work in an extremely dangerous field where the last thing we need is people under the influence of anything. If smoking that joint, popping that pill, or drinking that booze is more important than your job, paying your bills, and providing for your family by all means go for it. But you will not put me, my employees, anyone else or the project at risk of injury, damage, or worse. And yes you will be shown the gate at the very least if not banned from working for the company and or client ever again. I've seen it happen more than a few times in my 25+ years in the business....

    We had a Marianna's pizza - pepperoni, & sausage. Hubby added fungus to his half. I noticed as I was eating, a slice of fungus jumped ship & ended up on my side of the pizza. He must of thought he of safe, even though I picked it off, but, lol, no!!!! The hubby ate him!!! 😂

    The variable in number of accidents can fluctuate greatly over the years, so I'd take that report with a grain of salt. They are planning to put one on Scalp Ave at the Belmont St overpass in Geistown(Johnstown). ...in a place where it is already set up as a highway with off/on ramps. ....which is stupid to the 9th degree. The highway setup works great and flows more traffic than a roundabout could ever dream of. The Beaver Dr situation in DuBois falls along the degrees of stupidity, and the only reason why it is being considered is because the State will pay for it. At that location a properly timed traffic light would work better.

    Joint Municipal Building

    Just another way of saying "I don't have a clue" and/or "I don't understand." You really need to see where I grew up. The southern central part of the state makes Sandy look positively urban. Sandy is far from unique or special as a rural setting. There is nothing more special about the people that live there. My wife grew up on a farm. Most of my friends in high school were farmers. The 'city' had a population of well under 3,000. To find a town with a population over 8,000 you had to drive at least 30-40 minutes on non-state highways. EGADS!
