    Multiple events for Susquehanna Valley Conservatives

    LEWISBURG- The Susquehanna Valley Conservatives will have a busy next few months with multiple speakers and events. Meetings are held the second Monday of the month, and the organization opens its doors to the public of all political parties. President of SVC, Stan Zellers, says that they think it is important to stay engaged with the government, especially through history. “One of the things that I did recently was read the Federalist’s papers. One of the over-arching themes that Hamilton, Madison, and Jay wrote about is that people should own their government by remaining informed and engaged and that is what we try to do.” Zellers also says that the SVC bases their views off…

    Corbett tries new TV ad attack strategy on Wolf

     HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A new TV ad by Gov. Tom Corbett’s campaign is opening a new front in the Republican’s mass communication strategy. The 30-second ad unveiled Thursday labels Democrat Tom Wolf as a “maxed-out donor” to President Barack Obama. It also says Wolf supports Obama’s “disastrous Obamacare,” “radical gun control agenda” and “war on PA coal jobs.” It’s the first time the Corbett campaign has mentioned Obama in a TV ad. Campaign officials say it’s running in just the Harrisburg and Johnstown markets. Up until now, Corbett’s TV ads had tried to frame Wolf as a tax-avoiding millionaire and a tax-and-spend liberal. Muhlenberg College political science professor Christopher Borick says the Corbett campaign…

VIDEO HERE: Sandusky probe has ‘heroes’

Watch raw video of a portion of McGettigan and Fina’s talk in Danville: DANVILLE — Who are the people that helped unravel the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse cover up? While Sandusky prosecutors Frank Fina and Joseph McGettigan were in the public eye during the trial, they say there are several other people who were instrumental behind the scenes. McGettigan says former Penn State football coach Mike McQueary was one of those people. “When he was first contacted, he was forthright, honest, straight-forward and candid about everything. What made him look good, what made him look bad, what made him look indifferent; he told exactly what he did. He never in my experience wavered from…
