Harrisburg Man Arrested For Illegal Dumping

illegal dumpingMayor Thompson…..Here’s your Scumbag!

A Harrisburg man has been arrested for taking money from people to dump trash and then illegally dumping it behind a city church.

Police say 48-year-old Charles Whittington was taken into custody this afternoon and has been charged with several offenses including criminal mischief and theft. They say Whittington took money from people who thought they were paying to have the trash legally taken to the dump but instead he illegally dumped it near the corner of Sycamore and South Cameron Street.

Dauphin County Commissioner said they cleaned up the site but that Whittington is just one of many offenders in the county.

“Enough is enough,” said commissioner Mike Pries, who oversees the county’s Illegal Dumping Task Force and Waste Management and Recycling Department. “We’re serious about cracking down on illegal dumping and ridding our streets and neighborhoods of unsightly trash.”

Pries requested the anyone who sees illegal dumping should call police or Dauphin County’s Waste Management and Recycling Department at 717-982-6772.

CAMP HILL, Pa. – Capping off a difficult week, U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey addressed a crowd of Pennsylvania conservatives outside Harrisburg on Friday afternoon, acknowledging both his support for new gun control measures that have angered many conservatives and the failure of those proposals in the Senate this week.

Toomey did not apologize for his support of legislation that would have enhanced background checks on those who want to purchase firearms, and instead offered a detailed explanation of what was in the legislation and why he had proposed it. He spent more than nine minutes of his 30 minute remarks discussing the gun issue.

In the end, he said he hoped to “agree to disagree” with conservatives angered by it.

“We had the vote on Wednesday. I lost. I get that. I think this issue is probably settled for now,” Toomey said.

He also promised to resume his focus on economic issues, winning him cheers from the conservative crowd inside the Radisson ballroom in suburban Harrisburg.

Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson – Scumbag Video

This video was sent to us by a Harrisburg Liberty Alliance radio show listener. We thought this video was hilarious.  The Harrisburg Liberty Alliance will be erecting a large 4ft by 8ft sign at the corner of a high traffic area in Perry County.  The sign will note: “Scumbags Welcome”.

Central Pennsylvania 2013 Primary Elections

11438596-largeIt may be called an “off-year,” but the 2013 elections present crucial choices for central Pennsylvania.

Voters will be asked to weigh in on municipal, school board, and county races in the Mary 21 primary.

Let’s put it more directly: voters will choose the people who set their property tax rates, oversee area schools and decide if new housing developments or shopping centers are built across the street. Voters will decide who gets to serve as judges on county benches.

So there are plenty of reasons to pay attention to these races and vote.

Here’s another: Turnout for local elections pales in comparison to presidential races. So a relatively number of people can decide the outcome of these contests.

Candidates had to file petitions to get on the primary ballot earlier this week.

If you’re not registered to vote, go to the state’s elections website to get information on how to make your vote count.

Here’s a quick snapshot of key races, along with links to stories on the contests:

Harrisburg Mayor’s Race: Mayor Linda Thompson is running for re-election and she’s engaged in a four-way race for the Democratic nomination. Thompson is finishing her first term after unseating Stephen Reed in 2009. City controller Dan Miller, Eric Papenfuse, owner of the Midtown Scholar, and city resident Lewis Butts Jr. are challenging Thompson in the primary. Nevin Mindlin is running as an independent.

Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show: Region To Lose $44 Million

Eastern-Sports-Outdoor-Show-LogoVictory! 

The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show was expected to bring $44 million in direct spending to the region, according to the Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau.

Now that the show has been postponed — with no reschedule date set, and none imminent — many hotels and restaurants could be in for a difficult winter.

 “This is a hard time of the year to fill hotels,” said Rick Dunlap, a spokesman for the bureau. “A lot of these hoteliers relied on this show to make their budget for the early part of the year.”

The $44 million in direct spending the bureau projects does not include secondary expenses that also bring money to the region, like sales at gas stations or for supplies.

The show, billed as the largest outdoor sports show in the state, was to have more than 1,400 vendors. Many of those vendors traveled from out of the area and would have needed hotel rooms for the show’s week-long run.
