Another case of why states with right to carry (concealed firearms) have the lowest violent crime.
Beege Marshall July 24, 2014 at 10:55 pm
I take it you are referring to the doctor's right to carry his gun. His having one stopped thisRead More patient from doing further harm. As far as the patient having a gun, if this was a psych patient, the gun either wasn't his, or somehow he illegally got a permit/license if it was obtained after he began treatment for mental illness. I'm under the impression that is the case in PA law.

Editor - take a look at the caption under the first photo ("A literal ____-storm"). NiceRead More catch.

Seriously ...this is a family publication and you let a profanity slip by in the very firstRead More photo....pathetic...

I was hoping one of the pictures would be of the incredible lightning during that storm! (P.S.Read More 1:27 pm and the profanity is gone.)

The decision not to increase school funding when the stimulus ended was made by the CorbettRead More administration. He chose to fully fund the prison system after the stimulus money ran out, but not public education. So, he prefers prisons over schools.
Mark Spengler July 24, 2014 at 09:42 pm
Also, Corbett cut state funding having nothing to do with Fed. stimulus money Here’s $520.5Read More million in Pennsylvania school funding budget lines that existed pre-ARRA/stimulus (FY 2008-2009) that no longer exist: High School Reform $ 10.7 million eliminated Accountability Block Grant $171.4 million reduction Tutoring $ 65.1 million eliminated Dual Enrollment $ 10.0 million eliminated Science: It’s Elementary $ 13.6 million eliminated School Improvement Grants $ 22.8 million eliminated Charter School Reimbursement $226.9 million eliminated Key Education Subsidies Chart FY2006-07 thru 2012-13 http://keystonestateeducationcoalition.blogspot.com/2013/08/pennsylvania-education-policy-roundup_22.html

By the way, Corbett admitted to cutting state funding for Education: Today, after touring Mt. JoyRead More Wire to see that 130-person business, the governor was asked if the $429 million in lost state funding for schools compared to last year, meant he "cut education funding the state used to give?" He responded: "We reduced education if you a take a look at it as a whole. - See more at: http://www.psba.org/news-publications/headlines/details.asp?id=2382#sthash.ChjzrG7n.dpuf

That is a total joke. Why do they have to raise the speed limit when people go 75-85 mph now? ThereRead More is virtually no enforcement now for speeders and there will be no enforcement when the limit changes.
Bob Lentz July 24, 2014 at 11:22 am
It's all about the newer gas burners that don't burn up so much . Remember the 55 MPH limit . ItRead More reduced road deaths and saved gas . I think that was the purpose of the 55 mph . I-78 should be renamed to Heavens Highway .

Lower Merion School District is looking for bus parking. (Patch file photo)
Evie July 23, 2014 at 06:16 am
I am not in favor of the Bala Avenue site. It is too narrow of a road for multiple bus service. EvenRead More on a good day when driving down Bala Ave, one has to be very watchful as the road when cars are parked there has to be navigated slowly. This means even more traffic, slower moving and larger vehicles up and down during rush hours. I cannot imagine what this would be like in the winter. The concept of buses, bus fumes and additional cars traveling (bus drivers) to and from their jobs and families using a public park right there- it does not make sense. This park is used much more than most residents are aware of. Use the parking lots at the high schools to a greater advantage. I wonder how full the buses actually are at the high school level. Figure out a lottery or a grade level when one can "apply" for a parking space. Entitlement is not necessarily a good thing for students when it comes to this issue.
Phillyjazz July 23, 2014 at 10:30 am
A bus depot on stat spot would KILL the "walkability quotient" of the block. Finally,Read More after years, we have some traction with the likes of Pescatore moving in, and with a movie theatre as an anchor, it COULD be a nice little neighborhood. Narberth and Ardmore are commercially zoned, too, and people GO to those places. There are plenty of other places to park buses. Why drive a nail into the coffin of a people-friendly SINGLE BLOCK in Bala Cynwyd that has potential to be a gathering spot.
Sandra Campbell July 23, 2014 at 02:17 pm
What's the word on the suicide in Norristown Farm Park? All that action last Thursday and thenRead More nothing.

Blood Drive TODAY (Wednesday) at Congregation Or Shalom, 205 Old Grassy Hill Rd, Orange, 1 pm - 6 pm

As a past donor and as a volunteer at blood drives for over 35 years, I am aware of the great needRead More for blood especially during the summer months. Please look for your local opportunities to donate and sign up or walk in. Your donation will potentially save 7 lives and be greatly appreciated.

The victim, of this robbery, has got to be the biggest WIMP that exists! There's no way that thisRead More robber had anything in his waistband of his pants but his finger. This is the most ridiculous crime that I have ever heard of. This guy better not go out of the house without his "mommy". Get a backbone!!!
Mad as hell... July 23, 2014 at 10:13 am
shocking! Two black males robbing someone in Radnor! What is the world coming to? Oh, theRead More humanity!

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.
PS July 24, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Let's be realistic, those who are "unaware" probably aren't the people buying organic inRead More the first place. Lay off Kara - she's the only reason the patch is any good!

If the County didn't do it this what, what else would make then pay? Surely not takingRead More responsibility and doing it on their own...If so, it wouldn't of come to this. Sure everyone's situation is different. Like a comment above "I have to pay because my Ex is to lazy to get a job" NO, you pay because the child is also yours. You would be paying if she worked or not. It's the way it is and doing whats right! Those not paying or thinking this way sure have some crappy morals...
mac July 22, 2014 at 02:14 pm
Don't you all think that those kids already see their parents as villains for not caring enough toRead More stick around and be responsible. That is the problem with this country and so many who live in it. Everything is disposable even their own children. And when they are not disposing of items they have their hands out for more freebies. Some of the kids in the system might not even know that the pictures are their dads or moms, because they have never seen them. There is no good way to collect but it is time they did something. I know for one I'm tired of working all my life to see my money go to increased taxes to pay for those able bodied persons on the welfare wagon!
George Robertson July 22, 2014 at 02:38 pm
In response Kathleen, I have paid every penny that I was ordered to pay, I should at least have theRead More satisfaction of knowing it went to my child and not for my ex's pleasures. There needs to be accountability presented. Not just pay the money and you don't need to know where it goes. I have always been a responsible person in regards to finances, but if the other spouse is lousy at it, that is not the other spouses problem.
Pamela McCarthy July 22, 2014 at 08:53 am
They need to expand to more states! Just got back from the Berkshires in MA...terrible not beingRead More able to find a Wawa when you need one!
