Thursday, November 27, 2014 by JULIA SWAN in Local News

For the 34th year, the Governor Wolf Historical Society, East Allen Township, is offering a tour of local historic homes 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 6.

The Christmas house tour is one of the society's most important fundraisers.

In addition to the homes, all decorated for the holidays, the three buildings on the Governor Wolf campus, 6600 Jacksonville Road, Bath, will be open with craft vendors in all three buildings, demonstrations of hearth cooking, a sale of decorated wreaths and swags, and refreshments for sale by the Daily Grind.

Reasonable regulations don't encroach on rights

I must respectfully, but emphatically, disagree with my colleague, Deb Pal-mieri's editorial of Jan. 30, "Administration's encroachment on the Second Amendment is unacceptable."

Sadly, instead of recognizing the right to bear arms, like other rights guaranteed in our Constitution, is not absolute, Deb results to the "slippery slope" argument that other gun rights extremists are using, when she says, "First, assault weapons …and magazines holding more than 10 rounds will be banned. Then, semi-automatic pistols such as the Glock, will be banned."
