East Penn School District – A Safety Review. East Penn School District goes proactive?

Share

At the April 13th 2015 East Penn School Board (EPSB) meeting, The public was presented a story about how the district was going proactive in its desire to keep the children safe! How? By hiring a School Resource Officer (SRO) or more accurately a cop/police officer. Is Emmaus High School so dangerous that the administration believes it is essential to have a hired gun walking around their hallowed halls?

It appears that when someone working at a school district says, “It’s for the children”, their actions speak louder than their words, and one should look at what the East Penn School District (EPSD) administration does, not what EPSD administration says.

Take the essentially secret teacher union contract that was recently voted

IRS political targeting never again

Share

by Rick Manning–at Net Right Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Recently, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) introduced H.R. 1104, the Fair Treatment for All Donations Act, that will protect donations to 501(c)(4), (c)(5), and (c)(6) groups, regardless of their ideological perspective, from any executive action by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to apply the gift tax.

Applying the gift tax to these tax-exempt organizations is something that has simply never been done before, and yet the agency may be actively considering such an approach.

In July 2011, the IRS issued the following statement on numerous inquiries the agency was receiving about applying the gift tax to 501(c)(4)s:

“Recently, questions have arisen regarding the applicability of the gift tax to contributions to

“Hillary Clinton found at the rotten center of the Common Core national standards initiative”

Share

by Bob Kellogg at EAGnews.org

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A veteran educator says parents can thank Hillary Clinton for the Common Core national standards that have been thrust upon schools across the country.

Even though most people probably believe that Common Core was developed during President Barack Obama’s term in office, the foundation of the initiative goes all the way back to the 1980s, reports veteran educator and now-commentator Donna Garner.

Back then, she tells EAGnews Hillary Clinton worked with other left-leaning education reformers such as Marc Tucker of the National Committee on Education and the Economy (NCEE), Ira Magaziner and then-Gov. Mario Cuomo, known

Nine of Pennsylvania’s 10 largest cities have more pensioners than workers

Share

By Eric Boehm | Watchdog.org Note this article was posted on the Pennsylvania Independent

Meet the new poster child for Pennsylvania’s municipal pension problems.

York is a mid-sized city of 43,000 residents in central Pennsylvania near the state’s southern border that’s facing more than $64 million in pension-related debt.

In next year’s budget, York will be expected to pay more than $10 million toward the retirement fund of former city workers. That’s more than a quarter of the city’s entire budget, leaving officials with the prospect of cutting nearly all city services, except law enforcement, to pay the pension bill.

“We have done everything possible to fix our pension woes, but they continue to mount. The system is simply broken,”

From: Representative Russ Diamond

To: All House members

Subject:Property Tax Elimination

In the near future, I plan to introduce a joint resolution to place a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot so voters can decide whether to eliminate all property taxes in the Commonwealth by a date certain.Acquiring, possessing and defending property are declared as Inherent Rights of Mankind in Article I Section 1 of Pennsylvania’s Constitution. That declaration was made by contemporaries of the authors of the Declaration of Independence, which cemented the idea that governments are created among men to secure such rights.Currently, these rights are being abrogated by circumstances within the Commonwealth and its political subdivisions,

Gov. Wolf’s Blatant Misuse of Power

Share

By State Representative Daryl Metcalfe

The new governor is off to a tumultuous start as the chief executive of Pennsylvania. It seems that he and other top Democrat officials believe they can display the same disrespect for the people and our state Constitution as the president has through his actions. Since the governor was sworn into office and took the oath to uphold and defend the same constitution that I did, he has used the pen and phone aggressively to advance his liberal agenda.First, let me explain whom I am referring to as “other top Democrat officials.” The Democrat Attorney General Kane has demonstrated a pattern of abuse since taking office. The most recent grand jury report recommending multiple charges against her is still a

Does East Penn’s Fund Balance Affect the Bond Rating or Have the Taxpayers Been Lied to Again?

Share

East Penn School District (EPSD) administration and their bond agent PA Financial Management (PFM) constantly insist that the fund balance of the district is critical to the bond rating the district has, so let’s explore this relationship.

It is interesting to note that in the past when questioned about the excessive amount of uncommitted fund balance remaining at the end of every year board members, especially Mr. Charles Ballard insisted that there was no fund balance. That is, until the amount of cash in the fund balance grew so large it could no longer be denied. At that point the story from the administration and board changed, and the fund balance or the amount of uncommitted cash available in the budget was claimed

How the Emmaus Borough Manager saved a boat load of Big Bucks for the Taxpayer

Share

You heard right! Emmaus Borough Manager, Mr.Pepe, is saving Emmaus almost $1,000,000/year. in expenses on an ongoing basis!

How is that possible you ask? Well, read on and find out just how easy it was.

About three years ago the first step to this amazing accomplishment took place with the hiring of a new Borough Manager, Mr. Shane Pepe. Interestingly, he was Borough manager of Berwick, PA where in his first year he helped them go from needing to borrow money to make ends meet, to having cash reserves of $600,000; all this in a PA borough comparable in size and population to Emmaus but with only an operating budget of ~$4,000,000 yr. They also have full time Fire and police!

How did
