Thanks for another enjoyable column. French Hill should be the one all shaken up. The PA-18 special election is too close to call with the Democrat currently ahead. Trump won this by 20 points in 2016. The Republicans spent $11 million on this race and the Democrats only $3 million. Not even the Koch and NRA money can allow the Republicans to keep the House in November.

Well, if those ATV's are going to be using public roads, shouldn't they be titled and tagged, paying the appropriate fee that all other vehicles do? We can then use that money for the Superfund clean up project that will be needed in the Buffalo watershed in a few years. PA-18 is making me smile this morning. I am wondering how mozarky or packman are going to explain this one away. Another "weak candidate" perhaps? I heard someone this morning say it was because of the guy's porn mustache.

Good one John! Too bad about Asa, he would have been smart to do all he could to have saved the Buffalo, from the piggy poop. Chances are for every Republican vote he lost because of it, he would have gained multiplies of Independent and Democratic votes in return.

hah, Lamb ran to the right of Saccone. In order to run for this seat in November, Lamb will have to move into the newly created district, and by then he'll have a voting record. I'm sure he'll vote the straight Nanzi Pelosi line.

Moz says the grapes were sour, anyway.

Interesting. I didn't think he was to the right of Saccone, only to the right of Pelosi. He actually comes across as a centrist to me, and I bet that is where he stays.

....." if you state modifications in a permit,the state may only decide on the modifications"........

What is wrong with that, John Brummett ?

Should a hog farm apply for a permit to build,,,,,,,spend millions of $$$$$$$ doing so.....and have their original permits up for debate and public comment AFTER ?

The time for comments was BEFORE, not after it is built.

Gov Asa has it right !

Mac, if you will recall DEQ failed to properly notify the public about the proposed original permit, and thus the period for public comment closed and the permit was issued before anyone was aware of it.
