  1. 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".
  2. 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 mak
  3. 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.
  4. I wonder if the "specialty tea" he ordered was Long Island Tea?
  5. 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:
  6. See attached aerial photo with annotations
  7. "...retrieved an AR pistol rifle." A what?
  8. Ah! Perhaps people whose name begins with "V" are involved?
  9. 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?
  10. Makes me wonder what the headline writer was thinking, or if the headline writer was thinking.
  11. But in his case that should be "...eleven women on my mind..."
  12. I am not certain of this, but I have a suspicion the petition drive will not result in a question on this Autumn's ballot or any other. My reasoning: You can charter a city under authority of the City Code or you can charter under the so-called Home Rule Charter Act. What you can not do is pick some of the City Code, some of the Home Rule Charter Act, and get a charter for that hybrid. But that seems to be what the folks who drafted the petition are trying to do. The petition speaks of "a third class city" governed "as in the Home Rule Charter Act". I think that the Election Board w
  13. As I recall, the last three times the question of consolidation came to a vote the city voted to do it, the township voted to not do it. By your proposal, the city would get what it says it wants. Granted, the City of DuBois would cease to exist, which might bother some folks, but consolidation would have come to pass. While I am not at all sure of the ins and outs of such a process, I'm sure it can be done. I recall that the Borough of Columbus PA surrendered its charter and reverted to being just a populated area in Columbus Township. That up near Corry. It may be worth noting that
  14. "Where do you see in the article posted any residence location?" First line of the article: "Gary E. Mills, 61, of DuBois".
  15. Might it be that after they broke up, she got the McKees Rocks residence, he that at Treasure Lake?
