I am a user of the COVID Alert PA app, and even though I have not had COVID (and hopefully never will!), I check in every day. I think that all users of compatible phones should do the same. Many people would, if they knew about it. When the app (or actually just the idea of the tracking technology) was created, COVID was definitely serious, but people had not started taking the actions that they do now. I think many people have forgotten about the app (if they ever knew about it, or if their state had even created one at that point), and it is therefore not being used as much as it could be if people were reminded that it exists. And even people that do not become infected (which is obviously the goal) can greatly increase the efficiency of the app. If the states with an app, or that plan on soon releasing one, found a way to notify the public, I think it could greatly help with contact tracing.
Hi Jack, I just read your touching, heartfelt wring about Joanne and Patricia. My name is Laura Schiller Mackay. I went to Immaculate with Joanne and Patricia. I lived in Newtown and Joanne , Patricia and I rode the bus together. Joanne and I were close friends. She often stayed overnight at my home. I remember my Mom telling us to stop giggling and go to sleep. Jack I would love to talk with you. I remember that day so vividly. It would be so nice if we could talk and share our love of Joanne and Patricia. This is my number if you would like to talk, 541 324-6582. Jack, hoping to hear from you. Laura Schiller Mackay
Dear Nancy and family,
I just saw this post and am so saddened for the world. Jeff was such a kind person to me as are you Nancy, to the people like me in BYBA.I am in shock. xoxo Rest in peace, Jeff Colleen Minchik
Please note, it is rather easy to identify these Trump voters and take action to control and re-educate them. Turn the ballot sheets over to the police and let them be examined for fingerprints and DNA.
(NOTE: this is sarcasm in case anyone believes I was serious)
Can't we have honest policy debates without name calling and invectives ?
If I am correct, (and please do correct me), at the time FFH was purchased a golf course was suggested. The planner who suggested it said the first year it would lose money begin to break even the second and third. Break even the fourth year and run a profit the 5th year. That said according to Sports Illustrated a lot of golf courses are closing around the country. The demographic is aging and younger people are not taking up the sport like they used to. Young parents are not golfing, they are taking their kids to youth sports and doing other things.
A Horse Park was also proposed. It was proposed that this would help local businesses (gas stations, restaurants, stores). I am curious if this market has remained stable ? A municipal golf course would not add to the tax base (except in State Sales Tax) but it would not detract from it either. Housing may not be the answer, it is a net drain on tax revenue.
