I visited the Yeagertown Cemetery the other day and it is in terrible shape. It has not been mowed or anything. I wonder who was in charge of it. It's a disgrace. And then across from that there's another property that the grass hasn't been mowed all year and it looks terrible. I think somebody needs to do something about it. How about the zoning officer getting after these people?
Hamas is a democratic-elected organization in the Gaza Strip. This may be true but this does not give them the right to lob shells over into Israel. The terrorists in the Gaza Strip has killed as many civilians in Israel as Israel has killed in the Gaza Strip. You can't expect for people to go ahead and keep taking and taking without giving back.
I'd just like to comment on running back Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens getting a two-game suspension for punching his fiancee, knocking her out and attempting to drag her out of the elevator while she's totally unconscious. He gets a two-game suspension. Well, I guess Ray Rice can just be glad it wasn't his dog that he hit in the elevator and drug out because then he would've probably got a year's suspension like Michael Vick did or maybe two years. But seeing it was just his girlfriend, and I guess it's OK for guys to treat women like that, a two-game suspension I guess is adequate.
PennDOT, if you're planning on chipping tar on Honey Creek Road, don't even bother. It's just a big waste of money and a waste of time. It does absolutely nothing to help the road.?It's garbage.
I'd like to know where Mifflin County School District thinks we're at. My son's getting his license this year, he's a senior, driving to school. $50 for a parking pass. You gotta be kidding me! And then, if a lot of kids drive ... they gotta park down in Highland Park. I'd like to know what the teachers have to pay to park their ... car up there. And if they're not paying anything, then I think they should go down below and park in Highland Park and walk.
