BY DONALD GILLILAND email@example.com
“It must have felt like the end of the world…”
So begins the first campaign commercial for John Fetterman, mayor of Braddock near Pittsburgh and the third Pennsylvania Democrat to enter the race for U.S. Senate.
It’s one of the best campaign videos you’re likely to see this season.
The first few phrases of the voice-over are exactly what you’d expect from a campaign spot aimed at introducing the candidate’s back story – then it’s revealed the voice-over is no professional narrator, but Fetterman himself … and the unspoken message is driven home: this dude is totally authentic, the real deal.
And it sure doesn’t hurt that Fetterman’s story – and Braddock’s – is the stuff of film: Harvard graduate moves to a gritty impoverished old steel town and helps it make a comeback – a destination for artists, small businessmen and dreamers and a place where people want to live again.
The story is so good, the campaign video does not have to be heavy-handed… the uplifting musical score is barely audible (but it’s there).
The video achieves a rare thing: it feels real, unscripted.

City of Bradford Police
We want to take a second and share something positive. Today a woman and her daughter were in a local restaurant when one of our officers came in to get lunch. While the officer was ordering, the daughter walked up and paid for the officer's meal. They insisted when the officer politely declined because they wanted to show support for Police Officers. What they didn't know was, the officer had been having a busy day and was still upset about a prior call involving a child. The officer was quickly reminded of the appreciation people have and why he does the job. We want to thank these two residents for their kindness.
We also want to thank everyone out there that supports us and other officers through out the world.
Help us spread the word of our thanks by sharing and liking this. We want to spread the positive vibes.

A husband and wife team from Elk County have adopted the West Creek Rails to Trails and so far have placed 23 geocaches along a 3 mile section of the trail. The gps coordinates for the hiding places can be found at www.geocaching.com under the name WCRT.
Michael Groll credits his wife, Kimberly with coming up with the idea. Between the two of them, they have 7 years traveling the United States and five countries uncovering 2300 caches. Many times in the last year they traveled through Emporium. “Every time we drove past the new Rails to Trails on our way to get caches, she would look over at it and ask why there aren't any caches there. Then late last year, she made the decision that we are going to do this trail,” said Groll. Right now the caches are confined to a three mile section from Moore Hill Road heading east toward Emporium. Plans are in the work for another Geocache team to expand the caches west to Truman. The group hopes to have others place caches throughout the planned 18 mile trail connecting St Marys and Emporium.
Groll says many local geocache hunters have found the caches, but recently the trail is attracting geocache enthusiasts from outside of the region. Geocaching is an activity enjoyed by millions of people worldwide. Groll credits the hobby with finding his bride. “ I met my wife through Geocaching and our wedding was even published as a geocaching event. For some, this hobby comes and goes. But for myself, I'm still enjoying every adventure and at this point, I couldn't imagine geocaching not being part of my life.”

“This is a matter of the law, even for those who do not share my view that life begins at conception”
Washington, DC – Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today voted in favor of legislation that would prevent federal funding from going to Planned Parenthood, in addition to supporting legislation that would protect babies born alive following an attempted abortion.
“Like so many other people across our region and the nation, I was shocked to watch the videos showing Planned Parenthood officials talk about selling the body parts of aborted babies, which is illegal. This is a matter of the law, even for those who do not share my view that life begins at conception.” Thompson said. “There are many alternatives available in support of women’s health and taxpayer dollars should not subsidize organizations that act in such a callous manner,” Thompson added.
Thompson is a co-sponsor of H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015. The second piece of legislation is H.R. 3504, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would place severe criminal penalties and a civil right of action in place to enforce the law when babies are born alive following an abortion attempt.
Both bills now move to the Senate for further consideration.

Harrisburg Republicans have made it clear that they put right-wing special interests above our children, our schools, and Pennsylvania's future.
That is absolutely unacceptable.
It's time for Republicans to work on a budget that asks big oil and gas to pay their fair share so we can fund schools for a change.
