Them two just bottom feeders who could not make it in the Democrat party in Fayette, so they changed their coats to try to become a politician without any true value system.

What about Dave lohr and Russ?
Thu, Jul 06, 2017 - 9:29 PMDid you forget
about the last generation of democratic dominance of Fayette County. David Show and the current party leaders helped end it. A Republican Senator. @ local Republican Legislators. By any accounts they are doing great. Only a fool argues with success. As they vet candidates more will come. People aren't lining up to run. The current party has to be wary of RINO's like Soni Mancuso Shaner that can jeopardize years of progress by the local GOP.

see for yourself. go on their website and facebook page. no candidates and dated information
Fri, Jun 16, 2017 - 11:13 AMThe local republican party
representatives are doing a great job. They have been diligent in neutralizing bad players within the party. Most recently they have been able to disclose the facts around Michael Cavanaugh. His sorted past and criminal record have no place at the table. His shenanigans have been exposed time and time again and shared as needed. David Show has effectively done the impossible by helping republicans take control of all the highest local offices. He has been careful to vet the candidates in the other local races. Many bad actors despise his success and wish him to fail. The Cavanaugh name is toxic to all those associated with it. There is a saying that "you can't argue with success". That is not true for Cavanaugh he always argues against success because failure is all he knows. The republican revolution happening locally will not be sidetracked by the likes of Michael J. Cavanuts.
Fri, Jun 16, 2017 - 07:19 AMall politics are local
when you don't care about local politics that is a problem. all politics are local. you have more control there than you do nationally. too many people get on this site or facebook and repeat the national news. fake or not fake. no one or very little knows what is going on in your own back yard where it counts and where you can make the difference.
this last primary election proves a lot. the local gop did not field candidates. any real gop got on the ballot his or herself and not with the endorsement and help of the local gop. the names many saw on the gop ballot were democrats who cross filed or democrats who got write in.
democrat former Uniontown mayor ed fike got enough republican write ins to be on the ballot for Uniontown city council. democrat rick Vernon got enough republic write in votes to beat out a registered republican whose name was on the ballot.
the local gop cares only about trump. take a look at their facebook page. old news. they only repost things about rep ryan warner, matt dowling and sen pat Stefano. they leave out rep bud cook. dont get started on county and local officials that they ignore.

Hi guys. I don't know where to post this, but the Lord has been laying it on my heart for the past few days to tell people about Jesus. This burden is so strong that I have felt sick and very desperate to reach out to others and tell them about Jesus. I asked my Pastor if there were any ministries I could do through my church to serve God, but all he said to me was that if there was anything, he'd let me know. God has been driving me to serve Him so bad that I don't think I can wait much longer for an answer from my Pastor, I am desperate here and I don't think he understands just how urgent it is to witness to the lost. People are dying and going to Hell. That is no laughing matter. So I am going to write a post and witness to the lost on here... Dear person much loved by the Lord, Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners like you and me. Have you ever thought about what happens after you die? I have. It has brought me much anxiety thinking about it, because I know that this life does not last forever and one day, we all will die. A lot of people today do not think about where they will spend eternity, and this thinking is a big mistake. But what happens after death? The Bible is the only book that can tell us what happens to us after we die. God Himself wrote this great book; it is probably the most important book that was ever written. Do you mind if I quote some Scriptures? Some people get offended when I quote the Bible, but I never do. Do you know why? Because I am a Christian and I believe that Jesus is my Saviour. The Bible says so. And with that being said, I will give you some Bible verses to help you and educate you. So what happens after we die? The Bible teaches that man is a tripart being composed of spirit, soul, and a fleshly body. At death, our souls separate from our body and goes back to God to be judged by Him. God will judge everything we do in the body, whether good or bad. But here is the bad news. You see, nobody is truly a good person. You see, only God is truly good. Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you ever hated anyone? If you have, then you have sinned. Killing others is also a sin, and yet you hear every day on the news that someone has murdered somebody else. Why? Because mankind are sinners and on their way to a burning Hell. Rom 3:23 : For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Now that you know that no one is good in God's eyes, how do we then become good? How do we become vindicated before God? The Bible teaches that we need to have Jesus' righteousness but the only way to do that is to come to Him by faith: Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. So you see that you need to believe in your heart that God raised up Jesus from the dead, and you also need to confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord. If you die without Christ, you will spend eternity in Hell. In our modern world today, people think that Hell is a place of never-ending parties and good times. They think that all of their friends will be there. But that is far from the truth. You would think that these people have never read the Bible, or that they have never taken it seriously. The Bible teaches that Hell is a place of never-ending fire and torment, and my dear friend, that is not very much fun (this truth has scared a lot of people). It is a place of tears and no hope. It is darkness and loneliness. You won't be able to see anyone at all. It is eternal separation from God Himself. Since God is the Source of Joy and Happiness, that means that everything apart from Him is tears, sorrow, and no happiness. And that does not sound like very much fun at all, doesn't it? So my dear friend, for your own eternal safety, I pray that you will accept Jesus Christ into your heart today, and make Him Lord over your life. If you have done this, you need to find a Bible-believing church where you can grow in God's Word. And you also need to find out what God wants you to do with your life, so that you may serve Him. Blessings, Jacqueline

A BURNING DESIRE FOR EXCITEMENT BY MARK S. WARNICK, POST-GAZETTE STAFF WRITER With skill and a little luck, firefighters can arrive on the scene minutes after a blaze starts. In this Fayette County river town, there was a problem. A few of the firefighters have been accused of being there minutes before the flames and smoke. In recent months, state police have arrested four members of the Dawson Volunteer Fire Department and charged them with arson. A fifth firefighter has been granted immunity by the Fayette County district attorney's office. Investigators spent four years examining 25 suspicious fires before filing charges. The firefighters, several of them lifelong friends, were linked to eight incidents, police said. The investigation is continuing, although no other suspects have been targeted. ``Arson is one of the hardest crimes to prove, unless you actually see someone set it,'' said Trooper Tomm Lazar of the state police Uniontown barracks, himself a volunteer firefighter in Rostraver. ``It takes a lot of legwork and interviewing.'' The fires occurred during a 13-month period beginning in January 1991. In one case, a witness spotted two men leaving a hillside near where a fire had just started. Both men were wearing jackets with the name ``Dawson Fire Department'' on the back. The defendants ranged in age from 17 to 24 when the series of arsons began. Most of the fires were set at vacant buildings, although one blaze at a large garage in nearby Perryopolis destroyed or severely damaged 16 vehicles. No one was injured in the fires. ``I think it was just so they could answer the fire calls and be the hero,'' Lazar said. ``In most of your arson cases, it's self-gratification.'' One defendant, Aaron Stokes, 30, pleaded guilty to arson and criminal conspiracy. He was sentenced last month to four to 23 months in prison. Another firefighter, Mark Virgillio, 22, was granted immunity after agreeing to testify against the other defendants, whose trials are pending. Among those charged was Brian Hone, 22, the son of the Dawson fire chief. In one arson at a wood barn, Virgillio said, he was at the Dawson Fire Hall one afternoon with Stokes and Hone, when the three men left in Virgillio's pickup truck. ``We wanted to go out and find a place to burn,'' Virgillio said. After the fire was set and the siren blared at the fire hall, the trio returned to the barn on the firetruck to fight the blaze, he said. ``It wasn't to get away with it,'' Virgillio said, explaining the motive for the arsons. ``It was for something to do. We was all laid off from work and, I don't know, young kids have something to do all the time.'' Virgillio, who testified for the prosecution at Hone's preliminary hearing, said he and Hone had been good friends since they were 7 years old. Hone has proclaimed his innocence. ``Brian didn't do this, and I think in the end that will come out,'' said his father, David Hone, chief of the 43-member department. ``It seems to me these other people were trying to use him to better their bargaining position.'' Throughout the borough, population 535, the charges have stunned and disappointed residents. Most of them know the defendants or their parents or grandparents, if not all three generations. ``I just don't understand why they would do something like that,'' Mayor John Leonard said. ``It's had a dramatic effect. People can't believe it.'' In Dawson, once a thriving railroad and coal community along the Youghiogheny River, the volunteer fire department plays a unique role. It protects the community, assists during floods and other emergencies, holds Christmas and Halloween parties for kids and provides social activities for adults, such as the bingo games every Tuesday night at the fire hall. ``Our fire company does so much more than fight fires,'' said Mary Jane Winterhalter, the borough secretary. ``Anytime we need help, we always go to the fire department.'' The Dawson Volunteer Fire Department was started 99 years ago, serving a borough that in the early 1900s boasted as many as 60 businesses along Main and Railroad streets. Dawson once had five hotels and an opera house, its residents steadily employed by jobs with the railroad or local coal and coke companies. When those industries began declining in the 1950s, Main and Railroad streets started losing their luster. Today, there's a grocery store, used-car lot, service station, funeral home and bar. Borough officials excitedly point out that a local physician soon will hold office hours in Dawson one day a week. The fire department, whose members come from Dawson and surrounding communities, serves all of Lower Tyrone. When fires are reported, the siren at the fire hall blares for three minutes, audible throughout the borough and across the Youghiogheny River. In the wake of the arrests, the department has continued its operations without interruption. It receives about 100 emergency calls a year for everything from fires to traffic accidents and flooding. ``Of course it's a blow, but we have to deal with it,'' said Frank Lamanna, 75, a volunteer firefighter since 1940. ``We have emergencies we have to handle.'' Last weekend, more than 20 Dawson firefighters helped fight a blaze at a mobile home in Dickerson Run, just across the Youghiogheny River. While they await trials, Brian Hone and another defendant, Earl B. Ansell, 24, remain members of the department. ``If they're convicted, we need to take action,'' Lamanna said. ``They're not convicted. They're accused.'' Virgillio, who was granted immunity by prosecutors, has been expelled from the department. Stokes and the fourth defendant, Edward J. Chaney, 24, moved from the area and no longer are Dawson firefighters. Lamanna, a 56-year member of the department, said the arrests ``dropped the morale some'' among firefighters. Publicity about the arsons also has been damaging in the community, he said. Donations received during door-to-door collections, representing about one-third of the department's funding, were down 50 percent from previous years, he said. ``There's no doubt that this had a bad effect on the department's reputation,'' said Leonard, the mayor. National fire officials said no one was certain how many firefighters are arsonists and that the number of known cases was relatively small, considering there are more than 1 million paid and volunteer firefighters across the country. Still, the issue has been serious enough to have been studied by the FBI and the National Volunteer Fire Council, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. ``The predominant motive found was excitement,'' said Timothy Huff of the FBI's National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime. ``This is particularly true for the groups of youthful firefighter arsonists.'' In Dawson, what might have been excitement for a few firefighters has led to other emotions in town. ``I think it's sad, for one thing,'' said Patricia Lint, president of both the borough council and the local historical society. ``There is a good faction of the fire department that is hurt by all this. ``I just wish it were over,'' Lint said. ``But it won't be over for a while.''

I would have to see the balance sheet but it seems better then some of the other stunts Fay-Penn pulls. Like building crappy roads and letting the township an taxpayers pay for repairs, lighting and snow removal. At least our supervisors do not roll over for Fay-Penn.
