PHOTO INDEX: STATE REPRESENTATIVE EDDIE DAY PASHINSKI AND FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE AND PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH.
EDDIE DAY ON TNT!!!!
Eddie Day and TNT used to be the battle cry for young people yearning for good old rock and roll in the area. Now, as a State Representative primarily serving the Wilkes Barre Area, Eddie Day is on TNT, the cable network. Representative Pashinski has a message tailored to senior citizens to get their property tax rebate from the powers that be in Harrisburg. The commercial is well done and a smart move by Pashinski. He is telling the public he cares, he's on top of issues, building a firewall against political accusations that Pennsylvania homeowners have recieved little or no property relief from gambling and telling potential challengers in next year's primary that he is quite comfortable representing his district and would like to stay longer. Good ad with a good message.
THOSE HOLIDAY LIGHTS
One of the manifestiations of the tax money realized by Plains Twp are the new holiday decorations on every street light. For years, Plains adorned their area with those old time, big bulb lights that were strewn across Carey Street. Hopefully they'll be plugged in to accompany the new lights, a kind of blending with the new and old, but in the meantime, the riches of Mohegan Sun have given the Township a new look for the holidays.
Al Gore had hoped to leave his 40-minute Monday afternoon meeting with President Bush inconspicuously, exiting out the White House west entrance to avoid the awaiting press corps. It was Gore’s first return to the White House since George W. Bush took office. The president was officially honoring the 2007 U.S. Nobel prize winners.But the private meeting afterward with Gore symbolically stood as an effort to put a cordial end note on the bitterest presidential election in modern history. The two men had met before, most recently during the funeral of President Gerald Ford. But Monday marked their first private sit-down since 2000. But the man who was almost president would not speak of the symbolism of the day, nor the content of the conversation.
