CATA bus service issues

If a CATA bus driver doesn't drive the B Route schedule (Boalsburg) on a regular basis, chances are he/she will screw it up somehow. And riders can always count on this happening during PSU breaks, year after year. Many DRIVERS have consistently neglected to familiarize themselves with the Ride Guide. Some drivers have even asked riders which way they're supposed to go. They drive ahead of schedule arriving at stops too early, thus missing patrons. They've even bypassed stops altogether.

Centre County Commissioners are considering selling Centre Crest Nursing Home, but keeping the prison which loses more money.

I write today because I am very concerned that our Centre County Commissioners are considering selling Centre Crest.
Commissioners have stated that they cannot continue to lose 1.5 Million a year to keep Centre Crest in operation.
1.5 million spread over all the tax payers in Centre County is approximate $25 per tax payer.
Consider that we are losing almost 6 million a year running the prison!
What would you rather your tax money be used for > running prisons - or to care for our sickest in need

Wall Street Arrogance

Wall street Arrogance,
Wall street and the media continue to obscure the complaints in the current anti-wall street protests. The grievances are many, as the violations big business has committed against our democracy and it’s people are many. The short term bottom line is not always in the interests of the people of this nation. Though many companies are not at fault, there are enough of the larger corporations that have contributed to these problems in very significant ways.
The list of grievances associated with this movement are as follows. “They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage. They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses. They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation. They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization. They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices. They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions. They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right. They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
