Sixth District Republicans recently got together for a Christmas/Holiday Social. In the photo index you'll see shot of some local Republicans who this year really put their noses to the grindstone and did very well in expanding the growth of the local party. Many think 2010 will show more strength. Pat Umbra and Jim Lyons coordinated the event.
HOMELESS IN HANOVER
There's a big stink going on in Hanover Township. Seems like a church wants to open up for the night to house the homeless. V.I.S.I.O.N. which is the agency asking to coordinate with the church routinely arrests people who have warrants so the people needing shelter are not criminals. However the people in Sugarnotch think they'll be a crimewave. So there is a concern. Those Christians really have problems living those commandments don't they? Makes me glad I'm not a Christian but a Roman Catholic.
CRUISING' BOB ADAMS
Cruising' Bob Adams one of the mainstays of WILK Radio in the 70s passed away this weekend after some health problems. Bob did nights and then afternoon drive on WILK in the 70s and really personified the radio personality of that era. Always friendly and affable Adams never missed a mark and enjoyed his stint at the GREAT 98. Cruising' Bob (Mrs. LuLac asked if Cruising' was part of his moniker and even though it wasn't, to all of us radio heads the name was forever part of him) later worked as a photographer for the Citizen's Voice and as a technical engineer on WYLN TV 35.
ROB AND TAXES
My buddy Rob Nyehard was filling in for Sue Henry today on WILK. I gave Rob a call and we chatted about health care. Rob's concern about the Health Care bill is that he didn't want his taxes to go for people who want to buy health care from a subsidized government health care program. And I say, taxes are the dues we pay to live in a free, safe and kind society.
