LVC note: Without School Property Tax Elimination- You Really Never Own Your Home! Hello,

“Where is Kim Ward?” I heard over and over Thursday night at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center. Where is she hiding is more like it!

The misinformation and propaganda keeps on coming from Ward’s ivory tower. However, this time she didn’t just send spies…she sent her misinformed minions! The leader even said she was an AFP regional rep…I thought AFP was neutral on 76?

You have to laugh though, these “protesters” had no idea what was in the PTIA 76. After Ron Boltz and Jim Rodkey educated a few of them outside, you should have seen the steam coming from the lead, self-proclaimed, AFP troll!

THE WAR ON HOMEOWNERS CONTINUES! EAST PENN TO REFINANCE DEBT!

East Penn/Emmaus HS Superintendent Schilder

 

The issue of School Real Estate Property Tax Relief has been a hot issue for years and has been getting hotter! Many citizens have been organizing with taxpayer groups across the Commonwealth to pressure State politicians to do something meaningful. Act 76 is one issue that has reached the boiling point. Act 76 would have increased the State Income Tax slightly and the Sales Tax would have seen slight increase in exchange for the ELIMINATION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES!

Groups opposed to this are the Teacher’s Unions, School Administrators, and the Chamber of Commerce.

If Act 76 had passed, schools could still tax property to pay off debt. That is why school

After discovering what she considers over-the-top, sexually explicit material in her children’s high school reading assignments, a Northern Virginia mother is lobbying for greater transparency inside the classroom.

“This happened four years ago, when I first became aware of the books that were being taught in schools,” Laura Murphy, a mother of four in Fairfax, Va., told The Daily Signal. “As I read it, I was disturbed by some of the content.”

The content, Murphy said, was brought to her attention by her son, who at the

Is Pa. budget Groundhog Day ahead?

Matthew Brouillette, Guest Writer /February 1, 2016/ at the York Daily Record

Will Wolf show what lessons he’s learned from the painful budget process? Or will it be “déjà vu all over again”?

Is Gov. Tom Wolf stuck in a “Groundhog Day” deja vu loop?(Photo: File)

When Bill Murray’s world-weary weatherman character arrives in Punxsutawney in the classic movie “Groundhog Day,” little does he know the time loop that lies ahead. After endlessly reliving the same day, he asks, “What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?”

That’s a challenging question, and one Gov. Tom Wolf might be asking himself before his second budget address
