  1. Didn't know you were talking about old Facebook stuff.
  2. "Is this the Shanna Carlson (Star) from Clearfield on facebook?" "On Oct. 4, 2019, an explosion occurred at an apartment building located at 327 E. Market St. The explosion killed Shanna Carlson, 34, of Clearfield." Seems unlikely.
  3. "What internet is it through? What towers, lines, does it use or is it satellite? I don't even know exactly what questions to ask." It is its own creature. An offshoot of Elon Musk's SpaceX. Purely satellite. Sure, there must be earth stations somewhere but they are owned and operated by StarLink.
  4. There's already, and has been a large military operations area in our neck of the woods. (See attached map) Looks to me that the request is to allow lower level flights within that area.
  5. If by "...the guy in the 1980's..." you mean Hexum, he did himself in with a .44 magnum blank fired at his head from an inch or two away. The blast of gas from the muzzle did the deed. When I was in the service we had a recruit, out on bivouac, who crawled into his sleeping bag with his Garand cuddled up against his back. Unfortunately, there was a blank cartridge in the chamber and somehow he fired it with muzzle pressed against his back in the vicinity of his right kidney. Nearly the whole blast of gas was injected into his body, shredding one of his kidneys and tearing his intestines. He died in hospital a day or so later.
  6. It runs in my mind the a couple or three years ago Unilec spent a pile of money to replace an underground line in Howe Township with an overhead line. Never mind what the salesman said, "underground" does not mean "maintenance free".
  7. The more I think on Ted Zoli's proposal, the more irritated I get. Think about it. That 8 billion a year figure is, presumably, the total of vehicle repair or replacement costs and medical expenses caused by collisions with wildlife. Zoli proposes taking one quarter of that to build wildlife overpasses. How is that to be done? During that first year, while there are no overpasses, wildlife/vehicle accidents will presumably continue at historic rates, incurring $8 billion in costs. Are one quarter of the injured to forego treatment, one quarter of the vehicles to go unrepaired so as to make available the $2 billion Zoli proposes to "take"? The thing is a prime example of "pie in the sky by and by", or perhaps merely an empty head in action.
  8. When someone says "All you have to do is X" you can be quite sure that X is not all that you will have to do.
  9. I wonder if the "specialty tea" he ordered was Long Island Tea?
  10. The work on the pond's shores did much to improve the appearance of Jack McMackin's penny-pinching implementation of Jack Winfield's grandiose landscaping plan. Not visible: Several smaller tents pitched on the other side of the big tent. They pretty much fill the space between the old Main Office and the big tent. For your viewing pleasure:
  11. See attached aerial photo with annotations
  12. "...retrieved an AR pistol rifle." A what?
  13. Ah! Perhaps people whose name begins with "V" are involved?
  14. Huge white tent erected on a platform between the old main office and the pond. Now several smaller tents beside it. Looked inside the big tent, saw several elaborate chandeliers. What is it all about?
  15. Makes me wonder what the headline writer was thinking, or if the headline writer was thinking.
