President Trump to speak from Flight 93 National Memorial on September 11


Political Roll Call PG4

President Donald Trump will deliver remarks during this year’s observance ceremony at Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.


THEN & NOW Our Lady of Good Counsel PG 13

The observance will be one of two ceremonies this year that honor the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 on the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. On Sunday, Tom Ridge, the first Homeland Security secretary and a former Pennsylvania governor, will keynote the dedication of the Tower of Voices, a 93-foot tall musical instrument that will serve as a visual and audible reminder of the heroism of those on board Flight 93. "We are honored that President Trump will be in attendance on September 11, representing our country to honor our 40 heroes,” said Families of Flight 93 President Gordon Felt. “The Families of Flight 93 are grateful to all those that have helped to bring Paul Murdoch's vision of a 93-foot Tower of Voices to completion. It marks the end of our journey to see a memorial honoring the courage and heroism of the passengers and crew members of Flight 93. The story of our 40 heroes and their collective actions have been preserved so that future generations will be able to remember the pain of September 11th as well as the hope and heroism that once again helped to define our nation."

“I look back on the courageous actions of these 40 individuals with gratitude and awe,” said Governor Ridge. “Their extraordinary bravery will forever be preserved in this memorial. It is my hope that Americans will hear these chimes, walk the flight path, touch the Wall of Names, and feel a deep connection to these men and women that stood up in the face of tremendous adversity.”

Do coffee drinkers live longer? A new study looked at data to determine whether consuming coffee lowered the risk of premature death. This was not a small, short-term study. The data was collected for over a decade on a half-million people who’d been part of the U.K. Biobank study. It looked at all manner of health information and daily living, such as health history, smoking, drinking, exercise and coffee consumption, as well as exams and tests. Researchers then looked at all their information in terms of longevity in coffee drinkers. Here’s what they found: Risk reduction rose depending on the amount of coffee consumed. One cup a day gave an 8 percent lower risk of early death, compared to those who didn’t drink coffee. That rose to a 16 percent lower risk for those having six or seven cups. At eight cups or more per day, however, the rate fell to 14 percent. It didn’t matter what kind of coffee was consumed. It could be ground cof-fee, instant or filtered. It didn’t matter whether the coffee was regular or decaffeinated. Since both regular and decaf coffee had the same results, it’s not the caf-feine that helps reduce the risk of death. Bottom line is that, with all the many chemicals in coffee, they just don’t know what part of coffee is helping. A word of warning: Just because a study says coffee helps reduce risk of death, it doesn’t mean we should double or triple the amount we drink. That’s an individual thing and should be discussed with your doctor. If, for example, you already are on medica-tion for high blood pressure, even the small amount of caffeine in decaf cof-fee could have an impact on how effec-tive your medication is.

If you’re a patient and you have a new cellphone number, you need to tell the Department of Veterans Affairs. It has a new system to remind patients about upcoming appointments, and thus far, it’s managed to reduce no-shows by more than 100,000 appointments. As of July, 319,000 appointments had been canceled in advance, opening up the time slots for others. The first reminder text message on your phone will come seven days in advance of the appointment, with a second one two days prior. When the call comes, follow the prompts in the message to confirm that you still want the appointment, or you can cancel it.

To cook the jerked meat, the Indians dug a deep pit and lined it with stones. The pit was filled with green pimento wood, which, when burned, would smoke heavily and add to the flavor. The holes that were “jerked” into the meat also allowed heat to escape without loss of moisture.

Chairman Val DiGiorgio congratulates Pearl Kim on becoming the Republican nominee for the special election in Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District Republican conferees from the current 7th Congressional District selected Pearl Kim to be the nominee for the special election to be held for the district on November 6, 2018. In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio, made the following statement:

Scott Wagner Must Immediately Fire Transphobic Campaign Consultant Ray Zaborney And Campaign Manager Jason High September 7, 2018 Today, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party is calling on Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner to immediately fire campaign consultant Ray Zaborney following a Billy Penn report that he shared a transphobic meme in a group text with top Wagner campaign officials. He must also fire campaign manager Jason High, who was included in the group text and failed to denounce Zaborney’s shameful actions. “Scott Wagner must immediately fire campaign consultant Ray Zaborney for his despicable, transphobic actions and campaign manager Jason High for failing to denounce Zaborney,” said Mike Mikus, senior communications advisor for the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “Pennsylvanians deserve a governor who will stand up for everyone in the commonwealth, but Wagner has already made clear that he is not that leader. Just recently, he said that he would consider signing a bill to make same sex marriage illegal. Scott Wagner as governor would take Pennsylvania backwards. Scott Wagner needs to take immediate action to fire Zaborney and High.” ate. • Ken Krawchuk for Governor. • Kathy Smith for Lieutenant Governor.

“Pearl Kim is one of the most exciting young candidates running for Congress this year and I would like to congratulate her on being nominated. “Pearl’s moderate pro-law enforcement and pro-taxpayer platform stands in stark contrast to the radical left-wing positions of her opponent. “As we move toward the mid-term and special elections in November, the Republican Party of Pennsylvania will continue to exert every effort to keep this seat red and elect pro-growth Republican candidates up and down the ticket.” ----------------------------------------------------------

By Samantha Weaver • It was American astronomer, astrophysicist and author Carl Sagan who made the following sage observation: “The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.” • It’s not clear why lawmakers in the state of Alabama once thought it necessary to pass a law forbidding the operation of a vehicle while wearing a blindfold. • Though coffee has been around for about 700 years, instant coffee wasn’t invented until 1906. By George Washington. Of course not that George Washington. The man who made coffee more convenient — and less palatable — was from Belgium. • There seems to be quite a rivalry between the towns of Rosehill, North Carolina, and Wilmington, Delaware. Both locales claim to be the home of the world’s largest frying pan, with a diameter of 10 feet. This begs some questions, of course: How many eggs are being fried at once to require such a large piece of cookware? And what sort of stove is required to heat such a mammoth pan? • If you’re like the average American, you’ll eat about 35,000 cookies in your lifetime. • Those who study such things say that 70 percent of southern Nevada’s water use goes through the sprinklers for golf courses and lawns in Las Vegas. • It’s not surprising that the word “fondue” comes from the French verb “fondre,” which means “to melt.” • Do you know anyone who is xanthodontous? If so, you might want to refer them to someone specializing in cosmetic dentistry. “Xanthodontous” means “having yellow teeth.” *** Thought for the Day: “Laughter is a form of internal jogging.” — Norman Cousins

Hearing Loss Indeed Possible After Surgery

Changes in the fluid pressure in the ear also can cause both temporary and permanent hearing loss. Finally, antibiotics given around the time of an operation can cause hearing loss.

ANSWER: Stop the hydrogen peroxide — it is very drying and can dam-age the sensitive skin in the ear. The hydro-cortisone should work for many common conditions, but if it hasn’t, then your regular doctor, a dermatolo-gist or ENT doctor should take a look in your ear and see what is going on. Seborrheic dermatitis and eczema are common conditions that can affect the skin in the ear.



prospec-tive Democratic presidential candi-dates has endorsed the policy, while about a third of the Democratic mem-bers of the House have joined a caucus devoted to it. The good news for Sanders and Co. is that, in the wake of the failure of an attempted GOP repeal of Obama care, the health care debate is clearly mov-ing left. The bad news is that Medicare-for-all is still a completely batty, politically inserious idea. The new study of its costs, from the conservative Mercatus Center, concludes that Medicare-for-all would increase federal spending by almost $33 trillion during the first 10 years. The study notes that “it would be less expensive to the federal government to triple all projected appropriations,” and that “doubling all currently pro-

All of this is why the natural gravi-ty in a single-payer system is toward brute-force price controls and rationing to control costs. President Barack Obama had to promise that if you like your health care you can keep it because any change to private insurance is so tox-ic. Medicare-for-all would replace the employer-based system entirely for more than 150 million people. It wouldn’t matter how much they liked their insurance — it would be gone as a matter of definition. Republicans need to continue to develop and push their own ideas to reduce health care costs and adjust to the new reality where socialism doesn’t simply represent a laugh line, but a battle that needs to be won.

Sure, show them in their entirety, but only on a tapedelayed basis, after the networks have had a chance to identify all his lies and exaggerations, and as he spouts them, present the facts on the screen’s lower-third. — Label his tweets as dangerous nonsense when they are: Or ignore them as superficial childish tantrums when they are that. — Press charges against those who impede Trump coverage: If the local authorities won’t cooperate, press fed-eral charges against them. — Also press charges against the president if he incites someone to take illegal action against reporters: True, the criminal charges can’t be prosecut-ed while he’s in office, but that won’t be forever. In addition, he can be sued. I realize that each of these bullet points might be shot down as unwork-able or revised, but some variation definitely would be better than the timid response we’ve seen thus far. Otherwise, these assaults against the public’s need to know will get worse. Actually, it does every day. Now the boss man is tweeting that the press is “unpatriotic” and endangering “the lives of many.” The only patriotic thing for journalists to do is to get more aggressive with him and his fellow truth molesters. Democracy can sur-vive only with robust media. Neutered news inevitably leads to autocracy.

he’s the new White House communications direc-tor, where he’s taken his obvious tal-ent for managing up by becoming the Don’s latest enforcer. The latest victim is CNN correspon-dent Kaitlan Collins. After POTUS raged at Collins’ routinely impertinent questions at a photo-op, Shine banned her from covering an open press event later in the day. That followed his chewing her out in his office. Apparently, Collins handled the meeting in a classy way. Once again, the various news orga-nizations screamed bloody murder at this latest Trump media thuggery, but this is far beyond the usual wimpy statements of solidarity. It’s time for those who cover this gang to take stronger action. After a bit of © 2018 Bob Franken thought, I have some Distributed by King Features Syndicate, Inc. suggestions:

PA GOP asks Democratic Congressional candidates whether they support Pelosi, Socialists, and/or Maxine Waters At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Pennsylvania Republican Party Chairman Val DiGiorgio announced that the state Republican Party has sent a three question survey to all 18 Democrats running for Congress in Pennsylvania to ask them whether or not they will support Nancy Pelosi, if they support the agenda of the Democratic Socialists of America, and/or if they support Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ call to publicly bully Trump administration officials.

Anti-Worker Hack Scott Wagner Won’t Stand Up For Hardworking Pennsylvanians


“Pennsylvania Democratic Congressional candidates have been silent on these matters important to voters in making their decision about who to vote for for Congress,” said Chairman DiGiorgio. “With a Democratic Party increasingly moving to the left, Pennsylvanians deserve to know where their candidates stand on these issues.” The surveys were mailed Wednesday morning. In addition to directly mailing the surveys, postcard-sized copies of the survey will be distributed to county Republican committees to be distributed to Democratic congressional candidates on a grassroots basis. “The more that Pennsylvania Democrats remain silent about a radical socialist agenda that disrespects taxpayer dollars and incites violence, the more they are complicit in it,” Chairman DiGiorgio added. “It’s time these candidates go on record so that voters truly know who they will be supporting this November.”

Ahead of Labor Day weekend, we are calling out anti-worker hack Scott Wagner who would refuse to stand up for hardworking Pennsylvanians if elected governor. Last week, Wagner said he is refusing to release his tax returns because he doesn’t want his employees to unionize after finding out how much he makes. As the York Dispatch wrote, “Using his disdain for unions as a phony excuse for not releasing his tax returns is a slap in the face to every taxpayer in the state — especially for union workers.”







Unfortunately, these comments fall directly in line with Wagner’s extreme anti-worker record. He supports so-called “Right-toWork” legislation, opposes teachers’ unions, and wants to eliminate prevailing wage laws. He has even called unemployed people and underemployed people making the minimum wage lazy and said that he did not believe anyone in Pennsylvania was paid minimum wage.


“It’s not surprising that Scott Wagner wants to hide his salary from his workers so that he can continue lining his own pockets,” said Mike Mikus, senior communications advisor for the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “Wagner has spent his career supporting policies that would weaken unions, roll back worker protections, and make it more difficult for the hardworking families of Pennsylvania to get by. Scott Wagner as governor would not stand up for the Pennsylvanian worker.”

Background “Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner said he will not release a tax return because his income is nobody else’s business and he suggested that labor unions will use it to try to organize workers at the non-union waste-hauling business he owns.” [AP, 8/21/18] “During Monday’s forum in Harrisburg, state Sen. Scott Wagner and attorney Laura Ellsworth both said they support right-to-work legislation. ‘We need to become a right-to-work state. What it would do for us is just amazing,’ Wagner said.” [York Daily Record, 4/16/18] “Wagner hates the sway he says the unions hold over government. He doesn’t try to hide it either. Union leaders have noticed his name on every anti-union bill that comes along, from paycheck protection to eliminating prevailing wage on public works projects. At Penn Waste, he runs a nonunion shop.” [PennLive, 1/05/17] “I am not in favor of raising the minimum wage to $12. I don’t really know of anyone who is paying minimum wage now because you can’t find anybody.” [Scott Wagner Coffee and Donuts in York, 3/31/17] “‘…I’m not in favor of the $10, $12, $15 [wage] or whatever.’ So why back a hike at all? ‘To get rid of the conversation,’ he said. ‘The conversation has been going on way too long.’” [Pittsburgh PostGazette, 1/12/17]

Swish! Swish! Swish! The chubby brush goes in all directions on a big sheet of easel paper. “Jameson loves to paint,” says mom and athletic trainer Natalie Whitfield. I want to encourage his love for art, so it was time to find something to paint on that isn’t just paper (or potentially our house),” she says with an “I know where this joy of painting could lead” kind of expression. “How about making and painting a bird feeder?” she thought — and do it the recycling way with a plastic milk jug. She and her 3-year-old made a plan for their first big craft project, and then went to a store to choose paint and shiny stickers. Supplies for the “roof” became a second outing — a naturewalk adventure to collect twigs. Just the right ones. The project was a success. “He had a great time painting and decorating, so we decided to make two more for Mother’s Day gifts for his grandmothers,” she said. Are you looking for simple outdoor projects to enjoy with your kids this summer? A feeder for fine feathered friends is a good starter craft, and together with your child’s creative flourishes, it makes a unique Father’s Day gift, too. (Or, assemble all the supplies to make the feeder, put them in a box and wrap it up with a bow for a gift Dad or Grandfather can enjoy making together with your child.)

Uncommon Cures High Blood Pressure Prevention By Albert Magnus One of the simplest, most-often-overlooked strategies to prevent high blood pressure is, literally, right under your nose-- deep breathing exercises. Try the following technique, adapted from Chinese medicine: 1. Take a slow, deep breath through the nose, allowing the lower sections of the lungs, then the rest of the lungs, to fill with air

3. Repeat these inhale/exhale workouts four to five times a day, even if only for a few minutes at a time. (at red lights in traffic or perhaps each time the email beeps) . The potential benefits include lower blood pressure, increased relaxation and heightened immune defenses, according to practitioners of Chinese medicine.

2. Exhale slowly for 10 seconds, either silently or with an audible sigh, to remind yourself that the lengthy breath has been completed

Many players seem to regard the trump coup as beyond their capabili-ties, but there is really no good reason for this. In most cases where the coup can be utilized, dealer learns fairly early in the play that the trumps are not divided normally, and all he has to do is to take a few basic steps to over-come the bad break.Here is a typical case. West leads

a club against four spades, and East takes dummy’s queen with the ace and returns a club. Declarer has no need for a discard and also wants to initiate the trumps by leading one from his hand, so he ruffs the club. But when he next plays a low spade toward the jack and West shows out, South must find a way to limit East to two trump tricks. The only way this can be done is by means of a trump coup. So when East takes the jack of spades with the king and returns a club, South ruffs. This is in accor-dance with the basic principle that to execute a trump coup, you must reduce your own trump length to that of your opponent. Declarer then leads a low heart to the jack and returns a trump. Let’s say East takes the ace — his play doesn’t really matter — and returns still another club. Again South ruffs. This reduces his trump holding to the Q-9, which are comfortably ensconced over East’s 10-8. The coup is now ready to be executed. South overtakes the queen of hearts with dummy’s king and cashes the A-K-Q of diamonds, discarding his ace of hearts. Dummy’s last two cards are a heart and a diamond, and when declarer leads one of them, East’s trumps are couped. © 2018 King Features Syndicate Inc.

September 2018 | PHILADELPHIA DAWNING OF A NEW DAY | 11 Burton Leon Reynolds Jr. (February 11, 1936 – September 6, 2018) was an American actor, director and producer. He first rose to prominence starring in television series such as Gunsmoke (1962– 1965), Hawk (1966), and Dan August (1970–1971). His breakout film role was as Lewis Medlock in Deliverance (1972). Reynolds played the leading role in a number of subsequent box office hits, such as The Longest Yard (1974), Smokey and the Bandit (1977), Semi-Tough (1977), Hooper (1978), Smokey and the Bandit II (1980), The Cannonball Run (1981) and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982). After a few box office failures, Reynolds returned to television, starring in the sitcom Evening Shade (1990–1994). He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Boogie Nights (1997).

Governor Wolf Urges Legislature to Support Workplace Protections Against Sexual Harassment and Discrimination September 06, 2018

Reynolds in a publicity photo for Dan August (1970) Born Burton Leon Reynolds Jr.[1] February 11, 1936 Lansing, Michigan, U.S. Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today renewed his call for passage of a package of reforms he announced in April that will strengthen protections against sexual harassment and discrimination for employees, provide new legal options for victims and hold those who are responsible accountable for their actions. The House Labor and Industry Committee today held a second hearing on the legislative package.

Died September 6, 2018 (aged 82) Jupiter, Florida, U.S.

“The #Me Too movement has encouraged many survivors to come forward and their strength must continue to change our workplaces and our culture,” said Governor Wolf. “Workplace discrimination or sexual harassment are unacceptable, and millions of Pennsylvania workers deserve this protection now, not more delays and studies. This is the time for action and I urge the legislature to pass these commonsense reforms, so I can sign them into law.”

October 2019 release. Harrison Ford must have been dis-appointed when “Indiana Jones 5” was put off for two years, but he got over it quick by signing to drive a dog sled in the remake of Jack London’s “The Call of the Wild,” which was most memorably made with Oscar-winners Clark Gable (1935) and Charlton Heston (1972). Maybe playing a wil-derness prospector in the Yukon will finally earn Harrison Ford an Oscar, as it did for Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Revenant” (2015). © 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.
