PHOTO INDEX: STATE SENATOR LISA BAKER, WKRZ FM'S SHADOE STEELE AND PHOTO OF THIS BLOGGER'S NEW BOOK, "THE 26 RULES OF LIFE".
CHEERS TO BAKER!
It appears the only elected official to date that is taking the aftermath of the snow situation seriously is newly elected Senator Lisa Baker. Baker has been on radio talk shows and has been open with all members of the press. In terms of the Govenor's local office, well it seems like Baker (who ran a similar office for Governor Ridge) is leaving them in the dust. WILK's Sue Henry has been trying to get a comment from the Governor's office but so far, they are keeping mum. My question is where's the local office? Doesn't former Scranton Mayor Jim "I never met a microphone or talk show I never liked?" Connors on this deal? Connors who is getting a fat salary from Rendell's office ($45,000 plus) has lost his voice. Or he's being muzzled. Either way, maybe the only way to get a comment from Mr. Connor's is to have the Poets show up and maybe he can sing a few stanzas of Brenda Lee's "I'm Sorry".
DOHERTY OKAY TOO!
Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty stepped up to the plate during the crisis and also appeared on TV and Talk Radio. Doherty was also on the scene of that tragic fire in Scranton earlier in the week.
COUNCILS TO MEET
We'll have reports on the city Council meetings in both Scranton and Wilkes Barre that will take place tonight. On the agenda: response to the snow removal.
HOTEL STERLING NEWS
I came across some fascinating links regarding the Hotel Sterling renovation. Published by the Pennslyvania Progressive, they are worth a look. Here are the links for parts one and two:http://pennsylvaniaprogressive.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/02/the_hotel_sterl_1.html
SHAMELESS PROMOTION DEPARTMENT
Our new project, "26 Rules of Life" has been on the stands for a while. We had a wonderful interview with Sue Henry on Tuesday at WILK. On Saturday Feb. 24th from 2 to 4PM we'll be at the Barnes & Noble Book Store at the Arena Hub Plaza meeting and greeting people and selling the book. It's cheap, under six bucks. Later on in the day, we will be appearing on the "Saturfday Night Live At the Oldies" show on 98.5FM KRZ. Shadoe Steele hosts the program and will be interviewing us. Hope you tune in.
