Thank you for your inquiry, PK29. The childhood allergy that I "outgrew" was a foodRead More allergy. As a young adult, the allergies I encountered were of an environmental nature (ie to grasses, trees, molds, etc according to test results). Since I love the outdoors and did not want to continue to be fearful of going outside, I began praying and studying the Bible in search of a sense of peace which was a common practice for me. In doing so, my understanding of my relationship to God grew significantly. The allergies steadily lessened during this period and eventually stopped altogether. That was over 20 years ago.

My environmental allergies lessened greatly when I realized my food allergies. I no longer need myRead More allergy meds (inhaler, allergy sprays and shots) Gaining nearly 20 new food allergies in 5 years (I eat very clean and am healthy) is a shock to your lifestyle. Its possible your body just changed, which you are very lucky for! I am pretty sure that "god" can't cure me of life threatening allergies anymore so than protect any of the other people that "god" should be helping in their time of need.

Psers and the state workers pension fund was fully funded in 2000 . After the legislature , RidgeRead More and Rendell took a 50% increase , gave the teachers and state workers a 25% incease they went from bragging rights that they were fully funded for 40 years in the future without needing any contributions to an underfunding of 50 billion in a few years . Boomer retirees will need a few million to keep up their lifestyle in retirement . How do teachers and state workers do it ? Raise the taxes on the homeowner .

Who needs diet & exercise when God gave us 2 perfectly good index fingers...

Disordered eating often starts with a incorrect view of ourselves, whether it is how we seeRead More ourselves or how we perceive others see us. Are we good enough? Are we pretty/handsome enough? We can stop the downward spiral of thinking that we're not good enough or pretty enough by seeing ourselves as God see us. God couldn't create his children to be anything less than lovely. Loving ourselves also helps us to love others better because if we can see ourselves as God made us then we can see them as His divine creation as well.

I'm not philosophically opposed to TIF's - rather I just have one big problem with the HC TIF that IRead More discovered upon my reading of a early shorter draft of the LCIDA report. And that is the budgeted cost for the ground, which you would think would be nominal, since it is described essentially as being a very negative asset. That concern hasn't been addressed adequately. _______________________________________________________ At their Facebook site, the developers state, "For approximately 80 years after the civil war, the 63 acres of land proposed for Hamilton Crossings was utilized as a large, open pit iron mine. As a result of this use, mine wash residue has been found throughout the site. The mine wash contains arsenic and iron at concentrations above code, according to Ac...t 2 Statewide Health Standards. Also, mine wash has a consistency of pancake batter- it cannot support any weight and you cannot build on top of it. As a result, the site remains undevelopable until remediation occurs." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Then, why in the world would they budget $16,487,123 for "land acquisition costs" for such damaged ground, as stated in LCIDA's TIF report? The TIF might be justified if the land was truly a negative asset. But taxpayers should not be providing support presumably for remediating these problems until the present landowners take a severe haircut in the price they are seemingly receiving for the ground.

APPROVED. As I predicted in last October, when everyone thought this was dead after Lehigh CountyRead More rejected its participation in the TIF, it lived on and seems to be settled. Since LMT's property tax is only 2% of the school district's, East Penn will essentially be caught holding the bag alone in paying for this.
