Could It Be Monetary?
Im curious about Oakland Township Supervisor Cy Cowperthwaits objections to Rte. 92 being declared a "scenic byway."
Does he really believe this will turn Rte. 92 into the LA Freeway? How much traffic increase, at any one time would occur here? Lets get real!
And, how many truckers do you know who vacation or sight-see in their rigs, or does Cy fear trailer loads of tourists wreaking havoc on Rte. 92? Could the Bureau of Tourism tell me, "How cheaply can I travel in my big rig down the Rte. 92 scenic byway per day?" Facetious? Yes, but so are Mr. Cowperthwaits counterpoints.
One final thought, Penn Can Speedway. I think all of Mr. Cowperthwaits objections to the above (noise, traffic congestion, destroyed tranquillity, etc.) apply here, but theres one glaring difference Amusement Tax. Guess his front yard doesnt extend here! What differentiates these two examples; could it possibly be monetary?
We Have A Voice
Our doctors are leaving Pennsylvania in droves because of malpractice insurance. Students in medical schools are actually told by their professors not to practice in Pennsylvania. Why havent we been made more aware of this? What is going on?
A doctor I know in Scranton now pays seventy thousand dollars a year in insurance. Next year it will increase one hundred sixty-five percent. Yes, he will leave Pennsylvania. We the people have a voice. Write or call Sen. Mellon and Gov. Rendell and whoever else you can think of.
