  • PA Turnpike tolls go up 6% in 2020, but smaller increases expected beginning in 2023

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | December 29, 2019 | Ed Blazina
    Pennsylvania Turnpike users can expect 6% toll increases in 2020 and 2021 but then — if the state Legislature follows through with plans to change how the state funds public transit — the rate of annual increases gradually will go down to 3% in 2028. Nikolaus Grieshaber, the turnpike’s chief financial officer, outlined the agency’s financial future recently in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about the 6% toll hike that begins Jan. 5. The increase marks the 12th year in a row that rates have gone up and will increase the fee for a car traveling the length of...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg wants to dramatically increase national service opportunities to "reignite a sense of unity in America." The South Bend, Ind. mayor on Wednesday announced what his campaign has dubbed "A New Call to Service." The initiative would build a network of one million National Service members by 2026, when America celebrates the 250th anniversary of its independence. “National service can help us to form connections between very different kinds of Americans, as was my experience in the military,” Buttigieg said in announcing his plan. Pointing to his tours of duty in Afghanistan, the 37-year-old emphasized that...

    Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and attend three parties including one with the show’s cast. Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC winter retreat in San Juan planned to meet with key officials to discuss the cleanup after Hurricane Maria at a roundtable Saturday. But the weekend is packed with free time for the members and their families on the trip. “We are excited for you...

    Like many airlines, Southwest has been working on new policies to rein in passenger abuse of generous “emotional support” animal guidelines. Customers have successfully flown with support spiders, snakes, possums, raccoons and, of course, cats and dogs, even large slobbering ones shedding fur. We wrote here in April about airlines’ varied struggles with developing standard policies that meet the needs and desires of passengers paying a small fortune to fly cross-country without being eaten and passengers who feel the need to have their little baby Bailey nearby at all times.

    Own property and been renting it out in Florida for three years now. I'm sure we have freepers that have done this for decades and even some that got out of it. 1) We see the renter that asks? Do you accept Section 8? Aside from what that might allow, does section 8 allow for payment of last month rent. Is the security deposit in anyway dictated by that govt program? 2) We see potential tenants tell us about 'service animals' that we must take and allow in. We read that at least in Florida the statute does not allow...

    DogsBite.org - After Delta Air Lines issued a new policy on June 20, limiting emotional support dogs to one per person and banning pit bulls as service and support dogs, we reviewed top service dog organizations and their selected breed types. These dog breeds are overwhelmingly Labrador retrievers, golden retrievers, Labrador-golden mixes and standard poodles. Primarily, pit bull "breed advocate" groups, one who failed miserably, are pushing "pit bull service dogs." Accreditation by Assistance Dogs International (ADI) is the highest standard of accreditation for service dog organizations. We selected portions of website statements from accredited groups and candidates of ADI...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s message was read at the commemoration mass that was held at the Feriköy Surp Vartanants Church in Istanbul on April 24—the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.The message said, in part:“On this occasion, I would like to emphasize that the peace, security and happiness of our Armenian community are of special importance to us. We have no tolerance for the alienation and exclusion of our Armenian citizens and for a single Armenian citizen to feel second-class… With these thoughts, I once again pay tribute to the memories of the Ottoman Armenians who lost their lives...

    Do our youth really understand their country’s military? By Lt. Col. Brian Fleming When in uniform and far away from a military post, I am often greeted by strangers and thanked for my service. They have paid for my meals and treated me to coffee. I truly appreciate the recognition of service to our country and the value placed on being a veteran. However, I believe most do not fully understand what that service really means. The “volunteer” in our all-volunteer force is what makes the military successful. As an officer in the U.S. Army, I meet young people in...
  • Minimum wage hikes sending restaurants the way of the shopping mall?

    Fox Business ^ | 2018 January 15 | Brittany De Lea
    Eighteen states raised their minimum wages at the start of 2018, but increasing labor costs are strangling the dining industry so much that restaurants could soon face the same fate as shopping malls. "I think you're going to see thousands of restaurants close their doors," Willie Degel, "Restaurant Stakeout" host and CEO of Uncle Jack's Steakhouse, told FOX Business. "Fine dining is going to go by the wayside." The downward cycle seems daunting to Degel and other industry insiders. As costs rise, only so much of the burden can be passed along to consumers in the form of price hikes...

    Anne-Marie Slaughter, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s director of policy planning, now denies she endorsed Today’s Zaman, the flagship newspaper of Fethullah Gülen’s Islamist cult. Here is a google cache record with Prof. Slaughter’s endorsement, and here is the page now, with Professor Slaughter’s endorsement excised. Professor Slaughter denies she made the endorsementThere are two possible explanations: (1) Professor Slaughter is being truthful, and Today’s Zaman simply made it all up. If so, this suggests that the ethics of Zaman and the organization which sponsors it are non-existent. (2) Professor Slaughter asked for the retraction only after learning about Today’s...

    **SNIP** The Secret Service “knowingly allowed Chinese generals, disguised in civilian clothing, to meet administration personnel at the White House and logged them as ‘business guests’ at the administration’s request so as to avoid transparency,” Byrne wrote. The agency also didn’t check the contents of the paper bags that were brought into those meetings. In his previous book, “Crisis of Character,” Byrne claimed that the former Secretary of State was so demanding that many agents turned to drugs and alcohol.
