As the Lewistown police chief said ... they are waiting for reimbursment from grants that they have contracts with. They do the work, they submit for reimbursment and then they wait for a check just like you do when you work at your job. Haters, of course, see only what they want to see in an article.
I think the state police should be on the back roads where the speed limit is 35 miles an hour instead of being on the Lewistown bypass where it should be 70 miles an hour to begin with. Why aren't they slowing these people down out in the country? Somebody's gonna get hit by a car and hard to tell how far they'll fly.
I live out here by the church in New Lancaster Valley and I hear the same dog barking that I think somebody else is hearing, but I can't find the phone number for the dog law officer.
Editor's note: Melissa Bair, the dog law officer for Mifflin and Juniata counties can be reached at 527-4016.
Well, I think some of these complaints about the mayor and the police are coming from another little area because they're jealous of the police in here don't fool around, don't often take a lot of gump, they get to the problem. Now, as far as the mayor, she does a very good job, give her some credit here. ... Give Lewistown a break.
I'd like to say good luck to the Mifflin County Huskies football team this year.
Our beloved country will not be destroyed by a meteor or an asteroid heading for earth or a mega-eruption of Yellowstone. We will become another Guatemala or Honduras because Obama refuses to protect our open border with Mexico. My only question when that happens is where will our children flee to?
