Our local election is by far the most important forum in which any of us will participate. The county’s future will be wholly decided locally and not in some corrupt precinct in a city filled with undocumented voters.
More specifically, we must have commissioners who are forthright, trustworthy, honest and truthful. We specifically do not need more of the Liar’s Club. One of my favorite quotes, which I cited annually in all my university classes, comes from Thomas More, the great English statesman. “When politicians abandon truth for the sake of expediency they lead their country by short route to folly.”
When we consider the size of the county’s budget and the monumental issues attached we simply have to elect commissioners who will balance the interests of taxpayers with the fair wage our local employees deserve. Such intelligent leaders simply must understand the complex issues local governments must handle. They must correct allocate the millions of taxpayers’ dollars that come across their desks.
Since I am a Republican I must focus necessarily on the candidates of my party this spring. After careful and studied consideration, and as a professional political scientist, I have concluded that we had best entrust the next four years to Barry Dallara and Josh Lang.
Dallara has already demonstrated a mature capability of handling millions of taxpayer dollars. Lang has studied the issues carefully and will make a responsible and truth partner in good governance.

Some of the Everett area and clearville area are not receiving the shoppers guide now for over for weeks. We have made multiple calls to the Bedford Gazette asking why and we are always told they will leave the carrier a note in their box. The next week I was told to call the carrier but I do not feel that’s my job to call their employee and do their job. The next week we were told the carriers mailbox was full of complaints and we were guaranteed we would receive a paper this week. So I just checked with multiple people and no one has gotten one. So here we go again we will all be calling the office again. Wonder what lies we will be told this week. I even sent the gazette a message on Facebook asking why and I received no reply. If they are not going to give the shoppers guide part to the whole Bedford county then they need to make their advertisers aware that they are paying the same rate and not getting their advertisements to over half of Bedford county. We just need an answer it of the gazette why this is happening and if the carrier is no delivering them then she needs fired. Please see what you cab find out for us please. I don’t want me name published please. I am a very private person but my family depends on the flyers and coupons in that paper weekly and have not had them for over for weeks.
I am sending this in concern of my grandchildren going to this school.
I just read this post made by a Tussey Moutain High School Student. If this is true, someone needs to take action. Things like this just cant be left go. That is how tragic things happen and then everyone is in shock and just cant understand how it happened. Lets not let this kind of thing happen in our school !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To whom it may concern, as you know we are a very small school district here at Tussey Mountain. Word gets around rather quickly. Whether it would be whats for lunch, or what happened the class period before. I bring to your attention something that has been not only on my mind, but as well as some other students. We have a certain individual who threatened us saying ‘I’m going to kill everyone in this school, and myself’. Some of you might know that this person was not punished in any way, shape, or form for saying this statement. This individual was not punished in any way because he has a disorder we know as Autism. Why not, you might ask? I myself have been wondering the same thing. Despite numerous attempts before, by myself and others to see that some sort of action was taken up, no teacher, principal, or staff member wants to do a thing about it. So I have taken it upon myself to show you all how much the school district cares about these threats that are made. You might recall and event that occurred on December 14th, 2012, the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. 26 dead. Families left to mourn the deaths of their little children. The shooter was diagnosed with Aspergers. Closely linked to Autism. I’m just saying we might want to take action on this. Things like this cannot be left untouched. I’m sure it has made some students a little uneasy knowing threats like this were made. Our school simply does not worry about these matters I suppose. After the events that occurred in Newtown, something should be done. Please note that if you feel the need to screenshot, copy and paste, print this out, or do whatever with it, feel free to do so. If you feel the need to take it to a teacher, principal, or other staff member, please do. I can talk to them forever about this situation. I have expressed my opinion on this matter, not only for myself but all students at Tussey. Thank You, a concerned Tussey student.
After a fall on the ice last week, I visited my physician who told me I was going to need physical therapy. She told me I had options of where to go and left it up to me. I know the hospital has therapy but the hours aren’t the best for me. ProCare has been here a long time and know Chris Witt is the therapist there because I work out there. I pass Mile Level every day but recently noticed a new name, Drayer is located right next to Mile Level. I hadn’t heard of Drayer before and looked them up. They seemed very reputable but looking further on google I noticed Drayer was recently purchased by the investment firm of Goldman Sachs. This is the same Goldman Sachs investment company that in 2008 received a 12.9 billion dollar bailout in tax payer dollars then proceeded to pay huge bonuses to its employees and fire lower level employees. Anyone that feels similarly about Goldman Sachs should avoid using a healthcare company that espouses profits like Goldman Sachs as opposed to me the patient and my injury.

To the good residents of Tatesville; An incident of Attempted Aggravated Assault occurred in the village of Tatesville on sunday august 12th. Two individuals Bradley Robinson and Richie LaSalle arrived at a location between Brallier Station
i just wanted to pass on some info to y’all so that you could inform your readers.
I have been getting phone calls from various numbers but it’s the same ppl, with a sales person telling me that I’m eligible for free alarm systems if I put a sign in their yard advertising their business. I’ve told them numerous times no and then the man asked me ‘well how do u protect your home?’ – when i told him it was none of his business he began cursing and threatening me. I reported it to the do not call list and the government fraud website. Then I did research. Their scam works 2 ways, they either con you into giving them your bank or credit card info “for a security deposit they won’t charge anything” and/or if you say your not interested they then target your home to rob it because they now know your home isn’t protected with a security system. What I understand, these con-artists travel from city to city. If you try calling the number back, half the time the number is out of service or it’s an auto system that hangs up on you – (A real legitimate business would not operate like this, which I told the one man who called and he promptly hung up on me.)
From what I read, they suggest telling the operator that you already have a security system, this should make your home less of a target.
I just wanted to try to inform as many ppl as possible about this. I don’t want anyone to get robbed or hurt from these scumbags.
I am writing to ask that you help support International Guide Dog Day on
April 25th by letting your readers know how just important a guide dog is to
us that are blind or visually impaired.
Over the past thirteen years my guides… have kept me safe every single day,
quietly leading me around obstacles and protecting me from unheard cars and
trucks as we cross busy intersections. They truly give us the confidence to
travel independently and safely. In a very real way, they save our lives
each day in very simple ways, with no fanfare or celebration.
My guides have been from Guiding Eyes for the Blind (www.guidingeyes.org)
and came at no cost to the recipients. They live to help us and thrive on
the love and praise we give back to them every day! “Working” in harness,
our guides are so focused that they sometimes appear to others as being
aloof, but believe me they are not! They do have a life! They can be
fun-loving crazy dogs when off harness and leash back at home. Many people
do not know this, so we want everyone to know our guides have a wonderful
life being able to travel with us everywhere we go.
Please help us celebrate the “gift of miracles” that these wonderful
companions are to us and for all that they do to protect us. My special
furpersons provide me such inner peace!
