Constitutional Corner   

Constitution Blocks Election Fraud

Should the Founding Fathers have recognized that challenges to the Constitution or election results might occur? Maybe, if they had anticipated that future citizens and elected officials would defy the will of the voters, they would include more specific wording. 

The Twelfth Amendment did add some clarity but not enough to stop some candidates.

Letter of the Week

Toxic Waste Site Should Not Be In OUR Backyard...... 

Residents of Western Pennsylvania Beware! We are at risk! MAX Environmental plans to build a new hazardous dump on the banks of the Sewickley Creek, a tributary of the Youghiogheny River, threatening drinking water for thousands. We have some of the worst air quality in the nation with MAX releasing the highest airborne lead pollution in Pennsylvania. For years, DEP has ignored our poor air quality. In 1948 in Donora, 20 people died, within 6 days another 50 were found dying, hundreds of citizens were left disabled from a mix of pollutants and a temperature inversion.  For 50 years, toxic wastes have been dumped in Yukon. Max and its predecessor  Mill Service have had hundreds of violations, spewing harmful chemicals into the air and water, threatening our health. This new MAX dump will be the ONLY hazardous dump in all of Pennsylvania. They will dump untreated wastes including arsenic, benzene, lead, chromium, and radioactive wastes.  Why would the DEP  consider allowing a known polluter to continue? Remind our County Commissioners that allowing this dumpsite to go forward in NOT acceptable! If they turn their backs on the voters in Westmoreland county, come this November we will vote them out. Commissioners and the DEP should say no to MAX!
