A Massachusetts man is set to plead guilty to sending threatening letters with white powder to President Donald Trump's sons and others. Daniel Frisiello is expected to plead guilty in Boston's federal court on Wednesday. The letter to Donald Trump Jr. was opened in February by his now-estranged wife, Vanessa Trump, who... [Read More]

The husband of Republican Sen. Susan Collins says a threatening letter that claimed to contain deadly ricin specifically mentioned her vote to nominate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Thomas Daffron told WABI-TV on Tuesday that the writer claimed the letter was tainted with ricin residue. He and Collins were allowed to... [Read More]

The city parking authority is moving forward with plans to buy the Park & Lock East parkade from the City of Wilkes-Barre, which would significantly help the city's finances next year. Authority Chairman Paul Maher signed a letter of intent... [Read More]
I support Paul DePalo for Governor's Council, which approves or rejects potential state court judges. Paul's an attorney and former teacher who's worked with kids caught up in our courts. Paul wants common sense, compassion, and civility in our courts: incarcerate violent criminals, but treat addiction like a mental health issue, not a criminal one; for opioid addiction, incarceration over treatment is expensive and ineffective. Unlike Jen Caissie, Paul knows this position... [Read More]
There are two major reasons to vote "NO" on Question 1. The process of having a statewide vote on a labor problem is a dangerous precedent. How many Massachusetts voters know how the hospital business works? Who will be next? In two years the public school teachers may put forth a proposal that limits their class size to 12 students and our towns will have doubled their school budgets. Secondly, who is going to pay for this added expense (maybe as high as $900,000,000 a year)?Yes, you and I... [Read More]

I respond to the Monday letter "Carbon tax good way to reduce emissions" from Marianne Gabel of the Citizens' Climate Lobby, who proved why we skeptics do not fall for the sky-is-falling rant from the global climate change fanatics. Her proposal offers no cure for their claim that man is causing the end of days, rather she confirms it is purely a transfer of wealth by taxing carbon emissions and giving it to "households" not using the funds to cure the problem they claim is...

Now that early voting is underway in Franklin County, I highly recommend current Franklin County Domestic Common Pleas Judge James Brown for re-election Nov. 6.I know Brown personally and can emphatically state that he is experienced, fair, honorable, thoughtful and has the perfect temperament to be a judge. He was a family-practice attorney for 31 years prior to his election to the domestic court four years ago. Since becoming a domestic judge, he has been appointed to the Supreme... [Read More]
I respond to the Sept. 26 op-ed column "Ohio family courts compound damage of divorce," by Donald C. Hubin, chair of Ohio National Parents Organization. Domestic-relations courts in Ohio are required to have a "standard" parenting time order for parents who do not agree on a parenting schedule for their children. Most courts have services to assist in determining an appropriate schedule that serves the best interest of the children, such as mediation, guardians ad litem and... [Read More]
I respond to the Saturday letter "Don't overlook claims of sexual assault" from Jada Shinault. As a mother and grandmother, I hope she never encounters a sexual assault. Women and men live with that fear all the time now. But if for some reason the worst possible thing did happen and she lives through it, she must call 911 or tell someone. She must not wait 36 years to tell and not remember the details.The U.S. Constitution says we are innocent until proved guilty. Sexual-assault... [Read More]
Mike Luckovich's editorial cartoon in Monday's Dispatch depicted a vending machine with a newspaper headline that reads, "Female voters energized." Several men appear to be reading the headline with worried expressions on their faces. "GOP" is written on one man's jacket. At the top it reads, "It's a scary time for men."Perhaps Luckovich intended this for the Non Sequitur strip. He's inferring that women voters will... [Read More]
The Associated Press article "Harrowing tales of survival from town ravaged by storm" on Friday's Dispatch.com described storm conditions, but still dodges what should be a critical talking point for these communities. Unfortunately, whether storms are worsening or not is no longer important as they have reached a threshold of severity and frequency where some coastal communities are no longer habitable.I urge Linda Marquardt of Mexico Beach, Florida, and others to not simply bulldoze...

At a recent meeting at the White House, Kanye West demonstrated his support for President Donald Trump. Democrats and the liberal media condemned this meeting and found it disgraceful as West, a black American and independent thinker, enthusiastically showed his support for President Trump.Had a white male conservative had this meeting with President Trump, this would be no news. Liberals believe all black Americans should support Democrats, thus justifying their rage against West. [Read More]

Local conservation group Norwalk Harbor Keeper has cited a 2016 letter from the state budget office as grounds for the Connecticut Department of Transportation to rethink its plan to replace the Walk Bridge over the Norwalk River. In January 2018, Norwalk Harbor Keeper filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court, challenging the DOT, Federal Transit Administration and U.S. Department of Transportation to rethink the bridge replacement plan. The nonprofit group asked the court to invalidate the state and FTA's plan to replace the Walk Bridge with a new 240-foot lift bridge and instead "fully evaluate a fixed... [Read More]
