The LuLac Edition #1519, March 25th, 2011



Maybe I’m Amazed…….that we seem to have no discernible plan for Libya except to bomb it. I mean this guy (the Professor In Chief) won the Nobel Peace Prize right, not the “Bombs Away LeMay” award.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that in this age of contraceptions, legalized abortion and birth control advertisements in all media, women in tentative relationships choose to bring another person into the battle. An innocent one at that.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that the on line pagan travel company is running and paying boatloads of money for an annoying commercial. It’s the one with the guy who has a ton of sun block smothered all over his face with the dippy wife. I’d explain it further but that’s when I turn it off.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that Commissioner A.J. Munchak wants his corruption trial moved to Scranton because it would be more convenient for him. I totally get that. I’d like WYLN TV to move to the old Jehovah’s Witness building on North Street (oops, King’s took that!) so it would be more convenient. I’d like Price Chopper to move to Madison Street so I wouldn’t have to drive so far. This is a trial. This ain’t Burger King A.J. You can’t have it your way. Not to defend him but imagine Mark Ciavarella complaining about his federal trial being in Scranton! Jeez Louise.
Maybe I’m Amazed…….that finally the baseball season is just a few weeks away. And then comes summer.
Maybe I’m Amazed……that the AP awarded WILK Radio an award for the Friday Beer Buzz. To me it says more about the AP than WILK. Congrats though guys. CORRECTION: it was the PAB (Pennsylvania association of Broadcasters), and not the AP.
Maybe I’m Amazed…….that Rock 107 is still hosting their big birthday bash. Like clockwork on Holy Thursday, 107 hosts thousands of its hard core fans that make the station a legend around these parts. If you haven’t gone in your lifetime, go at least once.
Maybe I’m Amazed……that Michele Bachman that Congresswomen from Minnesota is thinking about running for President. With all due respect, can Steve Urban be next?
Maybe I’m Amazed….that Donald Trump has become a “birther”. Saw a clip of him on the Hen House, er “The View” the other day and his insight that no one ever heard of Obama as a kid is ludicrous. He was born in Hawaii which in 1962 was a state for 3 years.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that a government entity in Luzerne County said “no” to the Joyce Insurance Company. The Hazleton Area School Board was all set to vote on a multi million dollar insurance contract on Thursday night and Joyce had it in the bag. However, after a request from a representative from Dreyfoss insurance the board took a recess, reconsidered and awarded the contract to Dreyfoss. According to the Hazleton Standard Speaker, The Joyce agency's proposal came in at a lower price, but Lew Dryfoos III of the Dryfoos Group said there were steps taken by the district after the proposals were submitted that gave an unfair advantage to the Joyce agency. Several board members agreed with Dryfoos. According to board discussions, the district sought $10 million in umbrella coverage, but the proposal submitted by the Joyce group gave a price quote for $1 million, not $10 million. The district also sought a $1,000 deductible on the policy. The Joyce quote provided for a $2,500 deductible.
Maybe I’m Amazed…..that after the fact, the Diocese of Scranton has finally come up with a new Department of Property and Risk Management, which will “assist parishes and other diocesan institutions with the many issues involved in managing and securing property and facilities. ” This idea will help the churches transition into an area of closing, selling, renovation, maintenance, extinction, assassination, you know the typical ethnic cleansing that major institutions do when they want to destroy heritage and history and save some money. Here's the story of a church that never stood a chance.

I think you glazed over the Hazleton Area insurance situation too fast. If there was a problem with what was bid and Joyce used the specs to come up with a price and then the Board changed the specs, the bid should have been tabled and re-let. It absolutely should not have been given to a higher bidder because he bid on a different package . where the frig is the law when you need it? Will sombody with a phone call the FBI?

It is Sunday morning and I am praying for your soul. Contraceptions and abortion, the things you speak of are against God's law. You are not going to heaven you Godless soul.
