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."

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

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.

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.

The Obama/Biden ticket supports abortion, gay marriage and Obamacare mandates that interfere with religious freedom by forcing faith-based organizations to pay for abortions and birth control for their employees.

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.

A bit of a surprise since the newspaper leans left, but the Harrisburg Patriot-News, one of Pennsylvania's most influential newspapers, is backing Republican David Freed for Pennsylvania Attorney General, saying he would do the best job as the state's top law enforcement official.

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.

Greek Food Festival Opens Today in Berks County



The largest ethnic food festival in Berks County returns for its 42nd year Friday through Sunday at Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Reading, Pa.

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.

Kefi, the church's youth dance group, 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.

For more information, call the church office at 610-374-7511 or visit the church's website, www.stsconstantinehelen.org

Pa. group offers reward for voter fraud information


The Pennsylvania Commercial Action Network (PACAN) is unveiling "Replace Obamacare" billboards across Pennsylvania starting this week and offering a reward for evidence of voter fraud in the Keystone state. PACAN is an advocacy group for small- and medium-sized businesses.

From a PACAN press release:
First in Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley, PACAN's placements will remind a half million drivers a week to "Replace Obamacare," with plans to ramp up placements to reach 4 million viewers a week by the last week of October.

"The Congressional Budget Office is predicting that in 4 years, up to 20 million employer-sponsored plans will be cancelled because of Obamacare," said Managing Director Matt Balazik. "Our members have been worried that Obamacare's goal of a single-payer insurance market will affect their ability to keep a competitive advantage by offering exceptional health care plans to their employees and their families."

Also this week, PACAN is opening up a vote-fraud-reporting hotline (717-441-4388) and offering individuals the ability to print their own polling place signs advertising $1,000 rewards for information leading to a voter fraud conviction.
"We are asking voters, 'if you see something, say something.'  Doing the right thing by reporting election fraud, which hurts everyone, is a civic responsibility that comes with its own reward.  But, we'd like to let individuals know that there are folks out there who will support you and are very thankful you are willing to come forward, because not everyone will," added Director Skip Salvesen.
