Bob Lentz, I am afraid that your information is not correct. Pennsylvania State EducationRead More Association retired members do not receive free medical benefits. Some may have a contract agreement with their school district for this benefit, but it is a rare benefit, just of fully paid medical benefits for current members are rare. The state has no place or expense connected to those rare instances. Yes, one can take a deduction for work expenses regardless of one's profession or occupation, but as I am sure you know, a deduction is not reimbursement. I too take umbrage with the gentleman who was so insulting to the children but I also take umbrage with the governor's cavalier attitude toward a contractual obligation entered into by employers with employees. I signed my first contract in 1980 to teach for a salary of $7800.00 per year. Frankly, I loved my job so much, I would have done it for free. Occasionally, there were days when you couldn't pay me enough, but those were few and far between. Take care, if you are a person of honor who wishes to be fair, to check your facts, before you state them. What I say here is my personal experience. Yes, I am able to maintain a good standard of living in retirement with my pension, my additional investments and other products of good planning. Don't criticize teachers who worked hard to educate themselves, invested in continuing education (I paid every penny of the cost of my advanced degrees) and basically, made good decisions throughout their adulthood. Part of those plans were the agreed upon pension. Perhaps, as a responsible citizen, I would have spent less on continuing education (as an example) if that pension were not assured. I fund, by the way, to which I contributed 7% of my salary every pay day. Perhaps, I would had to decide between more retirement savings and additional graduate classes. Where is the honor in complaining and threatening to end an agreement entered into decades ago. I acted in good faith, how about you?

Where did I say they get it free ?

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.

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 .

the article clearly states the list of products recalled, two of which are organic, so no correctionRead More is warranted.

According to foodsafteynews.com the problem was with a filthy Wawona packing plant. After the plantRead More was cleaned there was no more Listeria present on any fruit. So why does this this article start with the word Organic?
EWCtzn July 24, 2014 at 12:45 am
Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.

Facts first! Rural interstates account for less than 5% of Pennsylvania's traffic deaths. With aRead More fatality rate of 0.60, rural interstates are the safest rural roads in the state -- the state-wide rural rate is 3.72 deaths per 100-million-travel-miles -- over six times higher!
William Keyser July 20, 2014 at 10:08 am
It was recently posed that speed limits were just revenue generators. I say drop the speed limitsRead More altogether and have police enforce safe driving by discretion.
Pam July 20, 2014 at 10:17 am
I've noticed that other states like Arizona, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, etc have theirRead More posted speed limits appropriate to the road conditions. On limited access highways (theirs tend to be a spacious 4-8 lanes) the speed limit is 85mph & 75mph on major roads. Good drivers know that this is 'maximum' assumes dry road conditions & good visibility. For limited access roads this is a blessing. Mountain passes, hairpin curves, and severe sloped grades are a different story and might be 25mph or less. Cut to PA limited access highways: tons of congestion and bottlenecks, typical 2-4 lanes except of rt95 and some parts of the PA turnpike, slower speed limits, and more people commuting. It's not hard to see why 'rush hour' in PA is all about sitting in traffic NOT moving. 'Rush hour' in AZ is not a congested mess, there are lots of people and the traffic moves great ! Our PA roads are small and designed poorly for traffic flow and speed. Take the new rt202 bypass through Doylestown to Montgomeryville, feeder roads are posted higher than the limited access road (45mph)-how is that NOT a bottleneck? Raising the speed limit on major PA limited access roads helps alleviate congestion. I wouldn't do this with every PA road, but the turnpike is a good start.

Nationwide the Labor Participation Rate is the lowest it's been in 40-years.
