Gov. Wolf wanted a modest tax on Marcellus Shale. It would’ve helped all struggling school districts with millions of dollars of infusion, but Republicans voted it out, so school tax will rise again.
Pottsville Again, special interest reared its ugly head. The tax makes sense and so do term limits. You see where I am going?

I don’t care what the reasons were for protesting, it shouldn’t have been done during the playing of a football game and it certainly shouldn’t have been done during the playing of the national anthem. We respect our flag and those who fought and died for us.
