Pennsylvania newspapers back Republican John Maher for Auditor General

Endorsements for Republican John Maher have been piling up across Pennsylvania, including newspapers that typically endorse Democrats:

York Daily Record: "Maher deserves credit for independence and effectiveness."

Philadelphia Inquirer:  "His auditing background gives John Maher the edge. With Maher, voters can be assured of having an auditor general who needs no on-the-job training. He even likes wearing a green eyeshade." 

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"Send a real pro..." "Pennsylvania deserves an auditor general who knows how to audit."  

Harrisburg Patriot-News"'The CPA for Pa.' Maher is right man for auditor general"

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review"a CPA who built his own auditing firm and whose commitment to government transparency and accountability is unflinching."
  
Uniontown Herald-Standard"the streak of auditors general in Pennsylvania not being CPAs should end in 2012."

Pa. Extends Deadline For Absentee Ballots

Because of the disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy, which forced the closing of many state and county offices, Pennsylvania has extended the deadline to submit absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 General Election by two days.

The Pennsylvania Department of State, which overseas elections, released the following statement:
Gov. Tom Corbett ordered the deadline for county election offices to receive applications for absentee ballots to be extended, on a county-by-county basis, depending on whether the county courthouse was closed for business any day this week due to Hurricane Sandy.

The deadline for voters to have absentee ballot applications to county election offices is October 30.  However, that deadline will be extended one day for each day a voter’s county courthouse is closed this week, but no later than Friday, November 2, by 5 p.m.

“I urge voters to mail applications immediately, and county election officials to process these applications and get absentee ballots to voters as quickly as possible,” said Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele, whose department oversees elections.  Aichele noted voters may mail absentee ballot applications to their county election office, or deliver the application in person.

Voters who become physically disabled or ill, or who learn they must be absent from your municipality of residence because of your business, duties, or occupation, can file for an emergency absentee ballot, by completing and filing with the Court of Common Pleas in their county an emergency absentee ballot application.
Information on filing absentee ballot applications is available at www.votespa.com.

A ringing endorsement of Mitt Romney by a Wisconsin newspaper, the Green Bay Press-Gazette:
How long can Obama blame his predecessor for the current financial woes without taking any responsibility for some of the economic duress and gridlock? At some point, the problems a president inherits become his problems if he hasn’t been able to solve them. At that point, then, we need someone else in the White House who can solve them. We believe that person is Mitt Romney.

Michael Barone: A newspaper endorsement that may matter

Mass. newspaper: Romney has the experience and leadership America needs

From the endorsement editorial in a Worcester, Mass., newspaper very familiar with Mitt Romney's record:
The decision to turn an incumbent president out of office is never one to be undertaken lightly by voters. But good intentions, repeated promises and lofty rhetoric are no substitute for sound economics and a foreign policy grounded in realism and strength. It is time once again for change in Washington, and we strongly believe that Mitt Romney offers the right combination of experience, vision, leadership and moral grounding to reinvigorate the nation’s economy, bring a measure of control to the ocean of debt threatening to engulf us, and lay out a foreign policy that has the clarity and force needed to deter aggression while promoting international stability.

Stunning! Des Moines Register Backs Romney For President

The Des Moines Register, the largest newspaper in Iowa, and a paper that has not endorsed a Republican presidential candidate in more than 40 years, is backing Mitt Romney for president!

From the endorsement editorial:
The former governor and business executive has a strong record of achievement in both the private and the public sectors. He was an accomplished governor in a liberal state. He founded and ran a successful business that turned around failing companies. He successfully managed the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Romney has made rebuilding the economy his No. 1 campaign priority — and rightly so.

From the Patriot-News endorsement editorial:
"Having Freed in our backyard has given The Patriot-News a close look at how he conducts himself. He has gone after Republicans and Democrats and independents.

In short, he has kept a professional eye on prosecuting criminals, regardless of who they are or where they come from. We believe he will do the same as attorney general."

Dallas Morning News Endorses Romney for President

From an editorial in the Dallas Morning News endorsing Mitt Romney:
Romney has shown an ability to lead, from turning around the deficit-ridden 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics to his term as Massachusetts governor. His plans for tax and entitlement reform are encouraging, shifting the focus from government first to freeing the private sector to innovate. Voters should demand more specifics, but at the heart of his plans — especially on reforming a teetering Medicare system — is an instinct to rely on competition over regulation to drive growth.

Obama himself once said that if he didn’t repair the economy “in three years, this would be a one-term proposition.” The facts show it’s time for a principled, pragmatic leader who can get Washington working again.

'Replace Obamacare' Billboards Go Up In Pennsylvania

 
The Pennsylvania Commercial Action Network (PACAN), an advocacy group for small businesses, is adding three more "Replace Obamacare" billboards across Pennsylvania on the eve of the Nov. 6 election.

From a PACAN posting on the group's website
PACAN is placing 3 more "Replace Obamacare" billboards along I-95 and I-76 in the Philadelphia market.  "We'll now be impressing 2 million people a week by the end of October, but we'd like to double that with digital bulletins along Pennsylvania's major highways," said Matt Balazik, "We need the public's help to share this reminder that Obamacare is bad policy that incentivizes limiting access and reducing quality."

In addition to the over 1,000 "Replace Obamacare" bumper stickers ordered by the public in the past 2 weeks, several hundred anti-voter-fraud yard signs have been ordered and we expect to see them at polling places around the commonwealth.
 PACAN is also offering a cash reward for information about potential voter fraud in Pennsylvania.

Thousands of visitors are expected to attend the Greek Food Bazaar to enjoy authentic Greek food and pastry and live music and dancing.

The food is prepared and cooked on the premises by church members using family recipes handed down through generations. All food items are available to eat-in in the church social hall or take-out.

The most popular dish is Athenian-style chicken, which comes in a platter with a side of Pastitsio or rice pilaf, Greek-style string beans, a Greek salad, roll and butter for $12. You can substitute Plaki (fresh fish fillet baked with vegetables, herbs and wine) or Souvlaki (chunks of marinated pork) on the platter meal.

There are also a la carte items such Gyro (marinated beef and lamb slices) and Souvlaki (pork shis-ke-bob) sandwiches; Calamari (squid) cooked in tomatoes and wine; Moussaka (eggplant casserole); Arni Psito (roast lamb); and Pastitsio (layered Greek pasta, seasoned with chopped beef topped with béechamel.

A variety of imported Greek wines and spirits, including Ouzo, an anise-flavored liqueur, will also be served. And be sure to try Mythos, a popular beer imported from Greece.

While enjoying a meal in the main dining hall, visitors will be treated to Greek and American music by Stavros & Maria, a brother-sister duo who are also church members.

The church’s youth dance group, Kefi, will perform traditional Greek dances throughout the weekend wearing colorful costumes.

After a hearty meal, there’s plenty to see and do on the church grounds. An Agora (Greek market) offers packaged Greek foods and prepared dishes to go. The Kafenio (Greek coffee house) features fresh-brewed Greek-style coffee, rice pudding and pastries in a relaxed atmosphere.

Visitors can also shop for original artwork, gold jewelry and items imported from Greece in various gift rooms.

Festival-goers can also view one of the largest collections of Byzantine iconography in the United States. Guided tours of the church interior are provided every the hour.

A popular stop for all visitors is the pastry room, where you can pick between popular treats like Baklava (almonds, butter, and honey layered in flaky pastry), Teelikta (walnuts, butter and honey rolled in flaky pastry); Kourabiethes (butter cookies topped with powdered sugar), Koulourakia (Greek twisted butter cookie) and Galaktobouriko (a filo pastry filled with custard and moistened with honey syrup). If you can’t decide, take a sampler box home with you.

Another Greek delicacy is Loukoumathes (puffed honey balls), a warm dough pastry topped with honey, cinnamon and chopped nuts.

Bazaar hours are noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission and parking are free. The event is held rain or shine.

Additional parking is available across the street at Berks Catholic High School.

The church is located at 1001 E. Wyomissing Blvd., about one mile from Business Route 222 South (also known as Lancaster Avenue). Turn onto Hancock Boulevard between the two car dealerships and stay on the road until you see the church on the right.
