    Natural gas developers in Pennsylvania are hoping a recent water quality report by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission could squelch plans for a fracking ban that’s currently being considered by the neighboring Delaware River Basin Commission. The SRBC’s Remote Water Quality Monitoring Network report, which was released last month, revealed that water quality scores at 14 of the 16 stations in the basin were in the “good” or “excellent” categories According to a fact sheet from the Susquehanna commission, the monitoring stations are located in areas where active drilling takes place, as well as areas free of development, in order...

    In a [leaked] transcript of the newspaper’s crisis town-hall meeting, executive editor Dean Baquet grapples with a restive staff and outside scrutiny. ... In the 75 minutes of the meeting—which Slate obtained a recording of, and of which a lightly condensed and edited transcript appears below—Baquet and the paper’s other leadership tried to resolve a tumultuous week for the paper, one marked by a reader revolt against a front-page headline and a separate Twitter meltdown by Jonathan Weisman, a top editor in the Washington bureau. On Tuesday, the Times announced it was demoting Weisman from deputy editor because of his...

    A Red Lion woman faces criminal charges after state police said she exposed her breasts to a trooper during a Thursday afternoon arrest. State police in York said they were called to the 400 block of South Charles Street in Red Lion Borough about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, when they found 25-year-old Brianna L. Wilson. According to police, a warrant had previously been issued for Wilson’s arrest. A trooper attempted to take her into custody, when Wilson flashed him, police said. “The accused became irate and exposed her bare breasts to the trooper in a taunting/inappropriate manner,” police said. Charges have...

    I just want to say that David Wood-and the handful of Christians in attendance-exhibited the attributes that one would expect from people who were saved from death by Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. While his opponent, and almost all of the Muslims in attendance-with the exception of the evening's host, who deserves to be commended for his efforts to impose civility-exhibited all of the attributes of those who are profoundly lost and who venerate a man who was imbued with wickedness, and served as the literal translator of the Devil. Even so, I hope that some...

    MORE than 70 Roman skeletons were discovered on the site of a former hotel in York. The grade two listed building, formerly the Newington Hotel in Mount Vale Drive, overlooks Knavesmire and has been stripped back by developers to create seven new family houses. During the renovation of the Georgian building, developers were surprised to find human remains, and the York Archaeological Trust were called in to assist with the recovery. Developer John Reeves said the development had retained most of its original Georgian features, but the scheme had also involved some "interesting" elements. He said: "The refurb has not...

    The story of five black women who were asked to leave a York County golf course for reportedly playing too slowly is making headlines and causing outrage across the country. The group of regular golfers said they were confronted at the second hole by Steve Chronister, one of the owners of the Grandview Golf Course and a former county commissioner, who accused them of lagging and offered to refund their money if they would leave. They were the only African Americans or all-female groups on the course in Dover Township, according to Sandra Thompson, who posted a detailed account of...

Schiff accused Republicans of altering a GOP memo that allegedly shows FBI surveillance abuses before they sent the memo to the White House without getting the changes approved by the committee.... There's just one problem with Schiff's story: It appears to be overblown, deceptive, and a desperate attempt to stop the memo... Byron York, a columnist for the Washington Examiner, spoke with sources on the committee who gave insight into the changes that were supposedly made to memo. York tweeted: "Just talked with House Intel source. Said total changes to memo were: A) Unknown number of 'grammatical and clarifying'...

    Barred from placing a billboard on his property, one Windsor Township property owner decided to warn others of the township's "dictatorial" ways. A truck displaying a sign that reads "Caution Entering Dictatorial Windsor Township" first appeared Saturday parked in a lot at the corner of East Prospect and Cape Horn roads. A dictatorship is a form of government in which absolute power is exercised by a single person, known as a dictator. The truck is owned by J&K Salvage, which offers customers the ability to rent out its trucks as a form of mobile advertising. This particular truck was rented...

    President Trump's scheduled trip to a Harley-Davidson factory in Milwaukee on Thursday has been canceled over the likelihood of protests, CNN reported Tuesday. An administration official told the news network that the plans were scrapped after the motorcycle giant became uncomfortable with the threat of demonstrations. Over the weekend, massive protests broke out at airports across the country after Trump signed an executive order on Friday banning citizens of certain Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. Other large protests were planned for the president's Milwaukee visit, according to CNN. Trump was originally supposed to head to the factory for a...

    FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — Back when Donald Trump was giving one hour-plus, free-form, jazz-improvisation speeches — that is, for nearly all of the campaign until the last week — Trump spent an inordinate amount of time telling audiences how great he was. He was the best at this, the best at that, he won this, he won that, his companies were the greatest, people loved him. A typical Trump speech included long stretches of nearly nonstop bragging.

    A new transit hub designed to evoke a bird in flight will open next week at the World Trade Center in New York. Its architect called it a 'monument to life.' 'It is a monument of faith in this city and a monument dedicated to the people,' said Spanish-born architect Santiago Calatrava, 64, of the Oculus, a $4 billion structure that was built around, beneath and above an existing, still-operating subway line. Steve Plate, the chief of major capital projects for the Port Authority, which funded the project, described how the building 'is aligned precisely to allow the sun to...

    The actors playing Minnie Mouse, Olaf from Frozen and the Cookie Monster were arrested by police in New York for hassling tourists for money. The rather surreal scene played out in Times Square, after the costumed characters had posed for a photo with one tourist. As he moved away from the colourful characters, they began to follow him and demanded that he hand over money for the photo.
