Yes, they are deadbeats but in the township's attempt to help their children, they are alsoRead More humiliating them. No child want to see their Dad portrayed as a villain. They would possibly rather be hungry than see their Dad shamed this way, which also shames them. Not an easy fix. Can't they wear ankle monitor bracelets or some kind of forced labor?

I have a license to carry concealed in PA and know better than to cross into NY, NJ, MA, DE or OHRead More with a loaded pistol in my car or on my person.

Mr. Goldstein: Talk about a intentionally offensive, unwarranted and irrelevant comment. Maybe youRead More were pulled over by an Irish - American PA State Trooper lately? I, for one, am college educated and have worked in law firms for nearly 2 decades...and I'm only 2nd generation American. Amongst my father's family (his 4 siblings) were 4 BA, 4 MA / MBA's, an RD certification, a PhD and a Doctor or Nursing (and they were 1st generation Americans!). Back in Ireland, my ancestors endured a nearly 10 century long pogram at the hands of the British, so I would think you would be sensitive to that. The Irish have a very strong work ethic and amazing derermination. As an O'Brien, I draw lineage from Brian Boru, the only Garlic king ever to unite and rule all of Ireland. How do you say, "You just got served" in Gaelic?? That I don't know, so I'll just leave you with Slainte! ("to your health!" in Gaelic.

Poor Josh, I suppose he must be so uneducated that the name "Kennedy" does not ring aRead More bell! Oh another fact you should know at least 22 of the US presidents have Irish descent too!
Josh Goldstein July 21, 2014 at 09:53 pm
Nothing is more humorous than the hypersensitive nature of Irish Americans-especially when many ofRead More them, like The Truth, are the first to call out African Americans as a race for the actions of some. O'Brien-Neat story about your history in the backwater that is the emerald island, the only place in Western Europe that is, for all intents and purposes, a third world country in the modern era. First, if you want to bring up how Irish people are educated, why would you mention their consistent employment in law enforcement, a notoriously blue color, low education job that the Irish flocked too because they are uneducated people? Second, can't help but notice your ancestors got an education in America, not Ireland. Note that I mentioned that Irish immigrants tend to be poor and of low education-which, judging by the only facts you can bring the savages you descend from is that they lived under a 10 century pogram at the hands of the British, you seem to confirm, because lazy alcoholics, which most Irish people are, are always more willing to blame everyone else rather than take responsibility. I apologize for stating empirical facts, but I would much rather make room for immigrants from North Africa, who unlike the Irish, come over well educated and well off financially. I mean, the Southern slave owners hated you guys so much that they had you die digging the Louisiana canal because even they recognized no human life is worth less than an Irish one, and that still didn't stop the Irish from fighting for the confederacy because the only thing Irish people want in life is not to be in last place-hence why trash like Truth will moan and whine about black people, but turn Alfred McSharpton when the truth about Irish savages is spoken. How do you say "Learn your history before you open your mouth" to an Irish savage? It's a trick question, Irish people are too stupid to understand history, it's why they take such pride in being from the most backwards country in Western Europe.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is still seeking these parents for delinquent child support.
Laura July 17, 2014 at 05:49 pm
So many parents hide income and scheme to find ways to lower their support. The guidelines areRead More already so low it makes it difficult to support your children on what you are given. If you have a child just do the right thing and support them already or don't have kids!! It's a privilege not a right...
amisstree July 19, 2014 at 02:19 am
These procreating monstrosities need to be sterilized. If the gov didn't "reward" theseRead More miscreants w/ $ for every baby they produced this cycle would STOP IMMEDIATELY! As would, this immigrationcrisis as well. Back in "civil times", if u couldn't afford to have/raise a child, a child wasn't conceived. Now, they get housing, food, medical assistance while mom and the random guy she's currently "banging" smoke crack all night. Great system, my fear, it's only to get worse. Socialism, isn't it great?!
Steven Wright July 21, 2014 at 12:17 pm
The entire child-support system is flawed. I have my child 45% of the time....every weekend for 5Read More years and I still have to pay almost $500/month so the mom can work 3 days a week cutting hair. But I'm sure she declares every cent of her tips.

Once again (and almost within 24 hours) the news brings us another horrific tragedy regarding theRead More senseless death of two more PA children. This has been a hard summer for the little ones. I pray we do not hear about any more of these tragedies. My prayers go out to the parents of these two little angels. So very sorry for your loss and for all the other children who have lost their lives due to freak accidents and/or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Juliana Brady July 4, 2014 at 01:22 pm
Weekender's don't pay attention to such important things like how to get out of a rip current. EvenRead More I a strong swimmer with certifications had trouble getting out of a couple of them. I also fully knew how to handle myself and it's still a killer for those who come down here to party and then think they are jumping into a pool in the backyard. Never turn your back to the Ocean, give it the respect it deserves, and don't go in just to cool off thinking it's just a "rip current" no biggie! The Ocean will take you down in a flash.

Nick Matregrano July 4, 2014 at 12:23 pm
Propane is a very flammable and explosive heavy gas. A lot heavier than air, if there is a leak itRead More will hang low until it finds an ignition source. You have to make sure the regulator and hose is tight on the bottle and replace hoses if they become cracked or dry rotted. They require daily maintenance.

They have to announce these checkpoints because checkpoints in and of themselves areRead More unconstitutional. The SCOTUS said that in order for checkpoints to be considered "legal" notice must be given and drivers must have a way to legally avoid the checkpoint. Get educated people. Its not about being above the law, its about asserting YOUR RIGHTS.
Dave Urner July 3, 2014 at 04:30 pm
First, I stand corrected regarding SCOTUS and consider myself educated as to the "legal"Read More aspects regarding announced check points. I take it that it's okay for a person to throw down a few brews and then hit the highways. I guess it is okay for a drunk driver to infringe on "THE RIGHTS" of another driver... to drive without getting T-boned by a drunk driver. I happened to have a couple of close friends who have been impared....FOR LIFE that were involved in DUI accidents. What happened to the two DUI drivers ??? They were made to wear those bright orange colored monkey jump suits for a few Sundays and tidy up the 422 by-pass and told what they did is a no no, don't do it again.
Peter Maravitch July 4, 2014 at 02:25 am
Need to take that photo down of the four lanes each way. It just upsets Lehigh Valley drivers evenRead More more considering Penn Dot built 78 at a great deal of expense and forgot to make it 3 lanes its whole length. So when this needs to be done because it will, especially going up that long hill heading East before the Rt 33 exit (how dumb was that move), we will again have to sit in long lines, a ton of extra cost not needed if they did it right the first time and just get more upset.

She could have Wilson's disease. They need to check for copper level in her blood. This is a rareRead More and very serious disease. It's a genetic mutation that is being linked to Agent Orange exposure. It makes it so you can't process copper. You end up with copper toxicity. This damages the liver, heart, brain, teeth, ect... It's unthinkable that her parents wouldn't take her to the dentist but for her teeth to be that bad in the first place, she must have a gum disease. http://omicsonline.org/unusual-enamel-hypoplasia-associated-with-teeth-mobility-in-a-13-year-old-girl-with-wilson-disease-2157-7412.1000118.pdf

In the case you are referring to "She was diagnosed as WD under the basis that she has aRead More neurological affection including movement disorders represented by poor coordination, loss of fine- motor control, cramped handwriting. Rigid dystonia represented by rigidity and gait disturbance. Pseudobulbar symptoms represented by dysarthria, drooling, and difficulty in swallowing. Psychiatric affection showed depression, aggressive/anti-social behavior and emotional liability. Kaysere-Fleischer rings are apparent by direct visual examination." The child in the case of the parents being charged was 6 years old and did not have the other symptoms of WD. The other was 13 and had most of her permanent dentition which were able to be restored or replaced with bridgework. The 6 year old needed removable appliances to replace her extracted teeth. big difference wearing these, versus permanent non-removable restorations. Reading the facts and research before posting unrelated information is much more helpful to the people reading this. Just saying.
Heidi July 6, 2014 at 08:08 am
I feel so bad for this little girl, they did in an article take her to a dentist I will give creditRead More for that but did not follow up for months later leading to this problem. Which then makes it their fault! There is free dental care for children not adults period so they can't use that as an excuse! There is also free transportation still no excuse. And someone posted before about them looking like drug addicts well looks can be deceiving as I am a very tiny girl born that way and people accuse me of not eating & I can out eat many men I know! We are all different but in this case sorry they do look like drug addicts & the father looks scary as all he!! It is just sad anymore if I could turn back the clock to when things were so different I would!
