    DELTA, Pa. — A York County woman is facing multiple charges, including resisting arrest, stemming from a domestic incident Sunday night in Peach Bottom Township, according to State Police. Christina Marie Surette, 48, allegedly told troopers who showed up at her home to arrest her that she was unable to walk outside due to her weight and injuries sustained in a previous car accident. She allegedly refused to get out from a couch in the basement of her home, police say.

    As coronavirus cases have been climbing in Pennsylvania, some counties are drawing attention from Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration. The Wolf administration is monitoring counties that are seeing a higher percentage of positive cases over the past week. In a news release Friday, the administration focused on several counties where more than 5 percent of those being tested are positive, a benchmark that health professionals have cited as a sign of trouble. Overall, the statewide positivity rate is 4.4 percent. But several counties have topped 5 percent, including some in central Pennsylvania. Southwestern Pennsylvania, which has seen an uptick of cases,...

    Twelve more Pa. counties will enter the green phase of Gov. Tom Wolf’s coronavirus reopening plan next Friday. Adams, Beaver, Carbon, Columbia, Cumberland, Juniata, Mifflin, Northumberland, Union, Wayne, Wyoming, and York counties were all designated to move out of the yellow phase at 12:01 a.m. on June 12 after spending all of next week still in the yellow phase. And, speaking of the yellow phase, every county in the state is now either in it or the green phase after Wolf’s complete stay at home order expired this morning. Remember: Most everything can reopen in the green phase, but Pa....

    Two Round the Clock Diner locations in York County were told their business licenses are revoked as of Friday. Written warnings were issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture on May 14 to both locations at 222 Arsenal Road and 145 Memory Lane, according to the department’s spokeswoman Shannon Powers. But, because they reopened ahead of Gov. Tom Wolf’s timeline, the state revoked both business licenses. Powers wrote in an email, "The Agriculture Department’s food safety inspectors did follow-up inspections on May 20 and found the businesses still in violation of Governor Wolf’s March 19 executive order. Both locations were...

    The Round the Clock Diner in York has reopened its dine-in restaurant, despite Gov. Tom Wolf’s stay-at-home order. York County remains in the red phase of Pennsylvania’s reopening plan during the coronavirus pandemic. Even restaurants in counties that enter the yellow phase are still limited to take-out and delivery only, the state’s plan says. “The reason we opened is obviously to get back to some normalcy,” Christos Sacarellos, a family member of the diner’s owners said. Sacarellos said the response from customers has been “overwhelmingly awesome” as people are just happy to get out. He said the restaurant is following...

    It’s deeply disappointing and downright dangerous that some members of York County political and business leadership, including some paid by the very taxpayers that they should be protecting, are essentially encouraging York County business owners to defy the governor’s orders and open. This irresponsible defiance by some of our leaders puts business owners, their clients, their customers and the entire York community at risk of further spread of COVID-19, a deadly virus that has already killed 13 of our neighbors and sickened more than 700 York countians in recent months. This is a time when leaders must have the courage...

    November 5, 2019 --- The Day Democracy died in York County, PA Thank you, Jill Stein. Your unfounded allegations of election insecurity led to an unfunded mandate by the Pennsylvania Department of State requiring many counties to replace--yet again--their voting machines with systems deemed more “secure”. Thank you, Governor Tommie (“the Commie") Wolf. Your capitulation without compensation led some Counties to choose the path of least resistance and greatest inconvenience by selecting paper ballot scanners which were inefficient at best and inoperable at worst. Thank you,York County Commissioners (only one of which might return to office). You “got your Dutch...

    I plan to volunteer at our Southern Border to help welcome and support refugees who are legally coming here to seek asylum. Why? Because I want these refugees to know that most Americans do care about them. I have watched with horror as leaders like Donald Trump, Scott Perry, Daryl Metcalfe and Lloyd Smucker use language like “aliens” and “illegals” and “animals” to characterize a group of people. It is racist and here are the real facts: 1. The United States has legal obligations to provide protection to those who qualify for asylum. Asylum seekers cannot be denied entry --...

    The shadowy leader of an American Muslim organization accused of running terror training camps in the U.S. could find himself being questioned under oath if his outfit follows through on its $30 million defamation suit against the Christian group that leveled the charges in a best-selling book.

    On April 16, the United Muslim-Christian Forum (UMCF) held an interfaith event in Owego, New York, featuring Christian and Muslim speakers, including the mayor of the town. Its Web site proudly hosts a photo of Binghamton Mayor Matthew T. Ryan holding a UMCF sign. Far from the model of tolerance it casts itself as, the UMCF is a front for an anti-Semitic, Islamic extremist group named Muslims of the Americas (MOA), and the keynote speaker warned that Allah will destroy whoever supports Koran burnings, and possibly the entire country. The MOA was exposed in the Christian Action Network’s (CAN) 2009...
