And "Secrets" and "Thank You"

BURIED IN DEBT

By MaryAnne Motter Cullen

 

    Buried on page B-8 of yesterday’s Lancaster New Era, June 27, 2006, was an article headlined, “Loan default Forces 67% rise in W. Earl Water Bills.” What is remarkable about this article is the eerie similarity to what could happen if the LCCCA would default on the bond that the County Commissioners are being asked to guarantee.

    The article, which surprisingly has no reporter byline, states “Customers serviced by West Earl Sewer Authority will see their bills suddenly soar by 67% after the authority defaulted on a $6.6 million loan”

      The comparison becomes more evident in this part of the news report, “The supervisors were assured by a lawyer who was part of the team making the loan presentation that the odds were ‘slim to none’ that the authority would default.”

      “But, just two months later, the authority did exactly that. The bank notified the township in April that the authority could not come up with its first payment of $20,412, due in May.”

        This article leaves lots of unanswered questions such as: who was the attorney who advised West Earl Township and why wasn’t the name published? Why wasn’t the name of the reporter put into a byline? Why was this article buried inside the paper? Was LNP afraid that the public would see that the same thing could happen to taxpayers if the LCCCA tanks?

    As usual, there are lots of questions and no answers from LNP.

SECRETS

 

     Well, the LCCCA announced another surprise meeting for this Friday at 7:00 a.m. in the Southern Market Center (the a.m. is correct).  And not reported in today’s Intell, was a resolution that was presented to City Council last night.  Please click here, and on the right hand column read the notice of the LCCCA meeting and also, immediately below, the article, “Lancaster City Council Declares War on County Commissioners.”

     Lanco Yokel takes Hawkeye Hawkes to task for his dreadful column yesterday and asks Hawkes for some logic (isn't that asking for an awful lot?) - here!

 

THANK YOU

 

    I would like to thank the people who send me emails - both good and bad – and the number has picked up dramatically in the last month.  The Cortney Fry case brings in the most and there was this yesterday:

    “I was reading your website today because I was trying to locate information as to whether or not Micah Stewart ever went to trial, made a plea, etc.  Do you happen to know if the murder case has ever been resolved or when Stewart will be going to trial? Thanks!”  

    I get this question a lot.  The trial of Micah Stewart for the murder of Cortney Fry is currently scheduled for the September 2006 session of criminal court in Lancaster County which begins on September 5, 2006. 

    However, it is believed that Stewart’s attorney will request a change of venue, and if granted, the above trial date and location would change.

    The current second leading topic of my emails is, believe it or not, Ron Harper, Jr!  I’ll save that topic for another day!  And the third is the incest story and most are from people who have suffered some form of abuse themselves.  Thank you for your emails. 

    I would also like to thank MaryAnne Motter Cullen for her excellent article today and Lancaster First for staying on top of the news better than the Lancaster Newspapers do!

 

STAY ABOVE WATER AND PLEASE CHECK BACK TOMORROW !
