PHOTO INDEX: THE BLOGGER AND HIS MOM WHO WILL CELEBRATE THE 47TH ANNIVERSARY OF HER 39TH BIRTHDAY SATURDAY AND LACKAWANNA COUNTY COMMISSIONER GOP NOMINEE (AGAIN) ROBERT CORDARO.
Robert Cordaro is back on the GOP ballet for Lackawanna County Commissioner. The county GOP organization nominated him on Thursday night. I say keep him there and have candidates who are not viable in the party stop with their court challenges. Let Cordaro and Munchak run on their records, let the voters in the County give them a thumbs up or a thumbs down. If Cordaro is again forced off the ballot, then a possible Democratic victory will be as hollow as President Bush's win in 2000. Let both teams run on the records, the proposals for the future and even their own personal characters. Let the debate begin, but let it start in the fresh air of the campaign trail and not in some musty courtroom.
We are getting tons of comments on our commentary on Mrs. Curley's legal problems. (Bob Curley's mom, not the killer wife, just so you don't get confused.) We are doing our best to moderate some comments and publish them. Others, well we just have to not let them see the light of day. But I have to say this, Mrs. Curley's story touched a nerve among my readers.
DO NOT CALL!!
Pennsylvanians are reminded that they need to re-register for the state's 'Do Not Call' list. It was in the late summer of 2002 when Pennsylvania residents started registering their phone numbers on the state's Do Not Call list, which prevented unwanted calls from telemarketers. By September of that year, more than 2 million signed up. But now it's time to re-register, something that many people may not have been aware was necessary. On Wednesday, state Attorney General Tom Corbett kicked off a public awareness campaign, designed to remind consumers what many have either forgotten or never knew: The 2002 law set Do Not Call registrations to expire after five years. Corbett told reporters, "For those people who were in the first 2 million Pennsylvanians to register in the summer and early fall of 2002, you must re-register by September the 17th of this year, or your number will be dropped from the Do Not Call list on November 1st.""It is important to remember that although your number may be registered with the Do Not Call list there are exceptions under the law that allow telemarketers to call your home," Corbett said. These exceptions include calls from, telemarketers who have had an established business relationship with you within 12 months preceding the call, tax-exempt charitable organizations, veterans' organizations chartered by the U.S. Congress and calls made on behalf of a political candidate or political party, or telemarketers calling at the express request of the residential telephone customer. Corbett said that the law also prohibits telemarketers from blocking their telephone numbers from a person's caller ID device.
