Letter to the editor

Congratulations to the team, coaches

To the Editor:

Congratulations to the 130-pound Catty football team for winning the Colonial League championship.

What an accomplishment for a first-year head coach and his team of great assistants.

This is a team that did not even have enough kids to field a team last year and had fewer than 15 players this year.

The 130-pound team lost only one game all season, to Bangor (9-1).

They won the rest of their games, many by the mercy rule.

This team was quite exciting to watch, with 30 plus offensive plays and many defensive schemes.

Legislation accomplishments abound in 2012

Thursday, November 29, 2012 by The Press in Opinion

The 2011-12 legislative session wrapped up in November, and before we begin the new session Jan. 1, 2013, I think it is wise to take a look back and see what we have accomplished.

Of course, some years are more productive than others but, this past year, we have been able to make significant progress on several fronts that will help improve the business climate in Pennsylvania, increase safety and protection, and honor our military men and women.
