Happy New Year to all and thanks for your concern. I just needed a few days off to take care of family obligations and indulge in my college football obsession. Normally things calm down news wise around the holidays but not this year.
The Iowa caucus is tomorrow and I still haven't made up my mind on who to back for President. For the most part I can live with any of the Democrats and the only Republican that doesn't scare the hell out me is John McCain.
On the local front we have another Republican candidate in the 10th Congressional District with another still toying with idea. In the 11th CD Lou Barletta is still playing Hamlet on the Susquehanna but he could probably put off a decision until it's time to circulate nominating petitions.
The only State Rep district that's is looking to have a race is the 117th where Jame May says he will take on freshman Karen Boback in the Republican primary.
And everyday another outrage surfaces about the way Luzerne County conducts business.
