David Caldwell's weekly roundup
of news affecting Blacklick Valley

Weather

Since the significant rainfalls of April and May, the area is no longer under a drought alert. However, dramatic contrasts and record-breaking extremes are adding interest to the weather reports. During April, the Valley experienced a week of temperatures going above 80 degrees. The consistent high temps set a new record for April. Now, morning temperatures in the 20 and 30 degree range throughout this past week have set new standards for consecutive days of frost. Monday's low was so cold that it even froze plants covered for protection against frost. Some avid bird watchers saw their vials of humming bird nectar frozen and cracked. The forecast for Memorial Day weekend calls for some rain but no extremes in temperatures.

Elections

Tuesday, May 21, was primary election day in Pennsylvania. This ended a campaign that sank to new lows for mud slinging. Perhaps the major consolation for Pennsylvania residents is that Robert Casey, candidate for governor, and Frank Mascara, candidate for the 12th Congressional District House seat, lost their bids to represent the Democratic party. They were chief of the mudslingers. Hopefully, the results of their negative campaigns will give rise to higher standards for the fall campaign.

Robert Casey, at least, bowed out with some dignity after losing on Election Day. Frank Mascara, on the other hand, has continued his bitter remarks aimed toward Rep. John P. Murtha and the voters of Cambria County.

Edward Rendell won the Democratic gubernatorial race. Mike Fisher won the right to represent the Republican Party in the fall election for governor. Bill Choby will be the Republican candidate to face off against Murtha for the 12th Congressional District House seat. The Republican candidates ran unopposed and avoided getting mired down in the political muck.
