Happy New Year to everyone, be safe

Article posted on December 31, 2017

The papers today were full of their year end wrap up stories.  One was focused on controversial legislation that is carried over into the new year including enacting a severance tax, placing tighter rules on the use of taxpayer-funded settlements of sexual harassment claims, what the plan for PA is if the Feds don’t continue the funding of CHIP, and if there are enough votes to override the Governor’s veto of the abortion legislation we just passed.  A story that hit the news the past few days was about the lawsuit against the legislature concerning the last Congressional re-districting map.  The plaintiffs lost another round in the Commonwealth Court and will have another review by the state Supreme Court in January.  I finished the Twilight Race again this afternoon.  It was a smaller field than usual because of the weather, but there was still a hardy bunch at Lakemont Park for the 5K/2 Miler.  I don’t know how I finished because they cancelled the award ceremony due to the cold.  I’ll find out online later.  Happy New Year to everyone, be safe.
