The LuLac Edition #1552, April 14th, 2011



Auditor General Jack Wagner’s term is running out this year and already there are people lining up to take his place. Wagner won in 2005 and was re-elected in ’08 by a large margin. Wagner is being term limited out. The Auditor General’s post is going to be key in the Republican Corbett administration specifically because of the way Corbett is cutting the budget and in effect re-allocating state priorities. Plus Marcellus Shale money looms large as millions of dollars are coming into the Commonwealth from that industry. The key agency that needs to be looked at would be the State Environmental Protection agency. DePasquale, I’m thinking if elected would certainly know his way around that agency since he served as a deputy secretary in one the agency sub departments. The Auditor General’s office will be on the 2012 ballot. The Democrats have hold that office since 1996 when now Senator Bob Casey won his first term.

ECTV, Comcast channel 19, will mark the anniversary with several showings of David DeCosmo's public affairs program "People, Places, and Things/ Titanic Special." The program features the stories of several regional people with connections to the 1912 disaster. In 1972 DeCosmo reunited two Titanic survivors. One was the late Mrs Thelma Thomas of Wilkes-Barre. DeCosmo was able to connect her to another survivor who had saved Mrs Thomas' infant son during the sinking. The program also includes information on a Scranton couple who died in the disaster and the story of a victim buried in an unmarked grave in Northumberland County. The segment will be run several times over the next few days. The times will be posted on line and can be checked by going to Google and typing ectv schedule.


I predict that by the fourth of July, the Donald Trump for President boomlet will be over. Trump has used as a starter the fact that President Obama was not born in the United states and keeps demanding that the President show his birth certificate. It is in fact on file in the state of Hawaii. Trump also is getting questions about his business practices. While Trump never went bankrupt personally, his businesses have. He is not handling any of those questions well at all and pretty soon Mr. Trump’s efforts will implode. Things are bad but do we want a President who played fast and loose with the bankruptcy laws? Trumps financial machinations in the 90s are a far cry from Harry Truman’s misadventures in haberdashery when he just got out of WW I.

Originally a folk somng from 1957, the tune was featured in the 1971 movie "Play Misty For Me" starring Clint Eastwood. The song is even played on Radio Station WYZZ FM which was known primarily for its easy listening music format. A few of the WYZZ young bucks snuck it in the playlist.

Yonk's quote, "Plus Marcellus Shale money looms large as millions of dollars are coming into the Commonwealth from that industry." I guess I've missed something. Marcellus Shale won't bring million in, it will cost billions just as the coal barrons destroyed the our land, Marcellus Shale will destroy our land, air and wateer. Dave Decosmo is the best reporter to ever hit our airwaves. Dave is a quality guy who was always fair and not looking to build a career on the bones of some poor soul. He needs some type of award before the Good Lord calls him to his just reward. You have some time Yonk, put it together.

Hubert Humphrey is the an who should have been president. I often wonder how different the land wold be if he had been elected. Humber Humphrey was a great man.

Donal Trump is the male response to Sarah Palin. He needs to be FIRED before he begins.
