Former ASD chief announces retirement
Gerald Zahorchak, who spent one year in Allentown, will step down as superintendent of Greater Johnstown next year.
The governor laid out a budget in February that appeared to be reasonable (by current standards). However, what he and his staff did not know was that they would be shy a bunch of revenue. The Governor’s no tax increase pledge makes raising any kind of new revenue almost impossible. So, as the months went by, there were hints that we might get a Marcellus Shale (natural gas) severance tax and that the Governor might actually sign onto the Affordable Care Act. Those two things might not have filled the hole in the budget, but it would have gone a long way. As the months rolled on, it was apparent that the members of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives were going an entirely different way.

Tribune-Review owner and philanthropist Richard Mellon Scaife, whose vision and funding reinvigorated conservative politics in America, died Friday, July 4, in his home. His death came just one day after his 82nd birthday. Many of the nation's leading conservatives considered him to be the man who sustained the Republican Party after its crushing defeat in the 1964 presidential election and the Watergate scandal in 1972.
