Oh my goodness, don’t get me started,
Our politicians are greatly divided!
Republicans, Democrats, it doesn’t matter,
Whatever is suggested gets torn and tattered.
It seems they lost all their direction.
They forgot the American people
Who voted for them, with affection.
They were chosen to serve this nation,
With, dignity, backbone, and pride.
But, whenever the going gets tough,
They go on vacation and hide.
Every time something needs to be done,
It becomes an imposition;
Seems nobody ever wants to give in
Pennsylvania has the unfortunate distinction of being the state with the highest number of Lyme disease cases in the country, with 12,200 cases of Lyme disease reported in 2016 (the most recent statistics to date).
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection most people get from the bite of a deer tick. If left untreated, the disease can cause serious physical and neurological problems that are hard to manage down the road.

I remember hearing of the death of actor Robin Williams in 2014. I loved his movies, especially “Patch Adams” and “Dead Poets Society.” I think any character he played, he performed well and with passion.
Newspaper staffs across the commonwealth work tirelessly, day in and day out, to deliver fact-based news and information.
It is the pledge of dedicated journalists, who are also fellow members of the community, to report real, honest and credible news.
In an era of misinformation and fake news dissemination, it’s even more important to know that newspapers are a reliable resource that deliver accurate, fair and unbiased reporting from which you may form your own opinions.
The volunteer fire company is a long and cherished tradition in our commonwealth, dating back to 1736 when Ben Franklin founded the nation’s first all-volunteer force to fight blazes in Philadelphia.
For nearly three centuries, communities have relied on volunteer fire companies to protect property and save lives. Today, this volunteer model is in jeopardy.
All research begins with someone asking the question, “I wonder ...?” That is what my research design instructor told us on the first day of class.
I have a number of things that make me go, “Huh ...!” but at the behest of my family, who had to endure me going through graduate school a few years ago, I decided to spare them and not to embark upon a Ph.D.
There are two things I have found about research in the meantime: 1.) One can easily find “research” to back up pretty much anything you want; and
Miss America 2.0. Coming soon: New website. New show. New experience.
Previous winners of the popular pageant are casting their own votes now, after last week’s announcement the Miss America organization would be eliminating its swimsuit and evening gown contests from the 97-year-old event.
Gretchen Carlson, the newly named chairwoman of the Miss America board of directors and herself a winner of the pageant, also announced it was no longer to be considered a pageant, but rather a competition.
“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
Before acting, I ponder this phrase taught to me by my mother years ago. If whatever I am about to say or do does not fit the framework of “something nice,” I simply refrain from putting it out to the world.
This second look has stopped me from doing a lot of things I know I would have regretted.
