David Caldwell's weekly roundup
of news affecting Blacklick Valley

Drought continues

The sky over western Pennsylvania continues to be stingy with rainfall. Many communities have issued water usage warnings and have banned outdoor fires. State officials have now forbidden open fires on state game lands.

Anthrax threat

Planned Parenthood of Johnstown received another package this week containing a powder and a threatening letter that clamed the substance was anthrax spores. The director of the local office opened the package without fear because it had a Planned Parenthood return address, which turned out to be phony. The letter was signed "Army of God." The package was quickly wrapped in plastic and sent to a laboratory in Pittsburgh for testing. The results won't be available till next week. The Somerset office of the same organization received a similar package; however, no one at that location opened the box.

Mainline Newspapers sold

Gene Stepp, owner and publisher of Mainline Newspapers has sold the business to Latrobe Printing and Publishing which publishes the Mountaineer-Herald, Ebensburg. Mainline Newspapers includes the Journal, Nanty Glom as well as the Star-Courier, Northern Cambria, the Dispatch, Portage, the Mainliner, Cresson-Gallitzin, and the News Leader, Ebensburg. Bill Anderson, current publisher of the Mountaineer-Herald, will head the new business. Gene Stepp has long known Bill Anderson and said he is sure he will continue to improve the newspapers. Latrobe Printing and Publishing will keep both the Mountaineer-Herald and the News Leader coming out weekly, but eventually publishing on different days of the week to give the Ebensburg readers more up-to-date news.

School security

The Blacklick Valley School Board is restricting access to the school buildings during school hours to one set of doors. When the proper equipment is purchased and installed, visitors to the school will have to push a button and state their identity and purpose before gaining admittance to the building. These precautions have become necessary in these days of increasing acts of violence involving both students and intruders bent on harming others.

Cards for when you don't care enough...

1. My tire was thumping.
I thought it was flat.
When I looked at the tire.
I noticed your cat. Sorry!

2. You had your bladder repaired and you're on the mend.
Here's a bouquet of flowers and a box of Depends. .
