That is a total joke. Why do they have to raise the speed limit when people go 75-85 mph now? ThereRead More is virtually no enforcement now for speeders and there will be no enforcement when the limit changes.

The writer of this article should make a correction...only the first two on the list of 7 possiblyRead More contaminated fruits are organic. Organic produce usually has the PLU starting with the number 9. All the others listed as Orchard Perfect fruits are not organic. Orchard Perfect is just a brand and is not organic. Way to scare people into thinking organic is bad.

Jen - you're totally correct.
Kara Seymour July 23, 2014 at 09:32 am
the article clearly states the list of products recalled, two of which are organic, so no correctionRead More is warranted.

Facts first! Rural interstates account for less than 5% of Pennsylvania's traffic deaths. With aRead More fatality rate of 0.60, rural interstates are the safest rural roads in the state -- the state-wide rural rate is 3.72 deaths per 100-million-travel-miles -- over six times higher!

It was recently posed that speed limits were just revenue generators. I say drop the speed limitsRead More altogether and have police enforce safe driving by discretion.

I've noticed that other states like Arizona, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, etc have theirRead More posted speed limits appropriate to the road conditions. On limited access highways (theirs tend to be a spacious 4-8 lanes) the speed limit is 85mph & 75mph on major roads. Good drivers know that this is 'maximum' assumes dry road conditions & good visibility. For limited access roads this is a blessing. Mountain passes, hairpin curves, and severe sloped grades are a different story and might be 25mph or less. Cut to PA limited access highways: tons of congestion and bottlenecks, typical 2-4 lanes except of rt95 and some parts of the PA turnpike, slower speed limits, and more people commuting. It's not hard to see why 'rush hour' in PA is all about sitting in traffic NOT moving. 'Rush hour' in AZ is not a congested mess, there are lots of people and the traffic moves great ! Our PA roads are small and designed poorly for traffic flow and speed. Take the new rt202 bypass through Doylestown to Montgomeryville, feeder roads are posted higher than the limited access road (45mph)-how is that NOT a bottleneck? Raising the speed limit on major PA limited access roads helps alleviate congestion. I wouldn't do this with every PA road, but the turnpike is a good start.

One's opinions of PETA not withstanding, it is a compliment to the vendors at CBP and these otherRead More ballparks that they recognize that there is also profit in serving healthy, vegan/vegetarian food to their customers.

Parents are so stupid, why would you spray this all over your kids too eat and breath in, just rubRead More it on. No common scenes.

Knock it off with this new polar vortex term weather people! Geez!
Andrew July 14, 2014 at 10:40 pm
Yeah, this isn't a polar vortex. It's a southward dip in the jet stream. And it doesn't really haveRead More anything to do with global warming, which continues as predicted. http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/tabledata_v3/GLB.Ts+dSST.txt http://www.agcanada.com/daily/polar-vortex-in-july-no-but-cooler-temps-still-on-the-way

I'm new at this. Can someone tell me why there is a shaded "delete" beside each of myRead More comments and everyone else has a shaded "flag" beside their comments. Just curious.
Marybelle Beachy July 16, 2014 at 11:51 am
Thank you. I thought since none of my comments were chosen to be posted on the Newtown Patch thatRead More they might have been too '"religious." Thanks again for clearing that up.
Marybelle Beachy July 16, 2014 at 01:28 pm
I understand. Thank you.
