REP SETS EVENT
Rep. Karen Boback (R-Columbia/Luzerne/Wyoming) will host a free Child Safety Expo from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16. at the Lake-Lehman Junior/Senior High School in Lehman.
“This event will be an opportunity for both children and parents to learn about what they can do to avoid dangerous situations and stay safe," said Boback. “Believe it or not, many people do not consider the dangers children face on a daily basis until it is too late. Teaching children how to handle the dangers they may encounter in their daily lives - such as how to deal with strangers, what to do if there is a fire, or what to do if they encounter a strange dog - can make all the difference."
Children in kindergarten through sixth grade, along with their parents, are encouraged to attend the expo, which will feature law enforcement, emergency responders, health care professionals and other state and local agencies.
“I am excited about the various interactive vendors we will feature at the expo," said Boback. “There is just so much information available for parents, but it is scattered and can be difficult to find. This is a way to bring the information that parents need to protect their children together in one place."
For more information regarding the expo, contact Boback’s office at (570) 836-4777 or (800) 278-3930. Information is also available on Boback’s Web site at RepBoback.com.
Boback has been very active in her district setting night time calling hours as well as hitting all of the crucial population spots in her district.
WHY PEOPLE HATE LAWYERS
So Bob Curley's mother was persuaded to sue in a civil court for damages against her former daughter in law, JoAnne Curley. The family wanted to go after the killer with a wrongful death suit but a bankruptcy judge threw it out. Is that bankruptcy judge soft on crime? Does he hate the Curley's? Does he have an in with JoAnne Curley? Nope. Get this. Mary Curley's attorney, Michael Mey, disputes the ruling of the Judge. Maybe the Judge even disputes it too and wants an Attorney to argue so he can make a ruling. But he can't because Mary Curley's lawyer never got a chance to argue the merits of the issue because a court motion challenging the claim was filed several days past the deadline. That led Thomas to dismiss the challenge on a legal technicality. This is typical of the lawyers in Luzerne County. We laugh at Bob Cordaro for messing up his election form, at least he got it in on time. But county lawyers can't even get the correct dates in order to file a motion or even argue a case on time. Don't you hire a lawyer to advocate for you? And then when they screw up, they hide behind legal crappola to save their sorry asses. Oh, the deadline should have been exteneded. Right. There are very few Luzerne County attorneys (there are a few good ones I grant you that) any one of us would trust with our lives. Most are incompetent, intelectually barren and just plain lazy. We wish Mrs. Curley and her family luck. Because of her stellar legal representation, too bad we have to. In the meantime, legal consumers have to seperate the cream of the crop from the slugs. Oh, and by the way, if you ever want to file an employment discrimination case in Northeastern Pa., forget it. Attorneys will run away from that one so fast, you'd think there was a fleet of ambulances ahead of them.
