Man Killed After Stepping Out of Lyft; Wolf Sues PA Abortion Amendment; Central Bucks Book Policy

Delaware State Police are still investigating after a man was struck and killed by another car after being kicked out of his Lyft ride along with his friends last weekend. It happened before 2 a.m. Sunday, 7/24, on Rt. 1 between Dewey Beach and Bethany Beach. 43-year-old Sidney Wolf of Clarksburg, Maryland, with 5 others were being driven home by the ride-share when there was an argument between the driver and the passengers. The driver suddenly stopped in the middle of the highway, terminated the ride, and forced everyone out of the car. At the same time, a 27-year-old man was driving a 2016 Toyota Corolla and changed lanes to avoid hitting the back of the stopped Lyft vehicle. Instead, he struck Wolf who had just exited the vehicle and was standing in the roadway. Wolf was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Toyota stopped, but the Lyft driver left. The other riders were not injured.

Lyft said in a statement, "We have permanently removed the driver from the Lyft community and are assisting law enforcement with their investigation." The driver has been identified and is cooperating with police. No word on any charges. Wolf worked as re-election campaign manager for Montgomery County, Maryland Councilmember Sidney Katz and was formerly a senior policy advisor for ex-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Pennsylvania Democratic Governor Tom Wolf sued the state legislature last week over a package of proposed constitutional amendments including one that is against abortion rights. Wolf argued in the suit that that amendment would violate privacy protections. The other amendments would require voter ID, have gubernatorial candidates choose their own running mates, empower lawmakers to cancel regulations without facing a governor’s veto, and establish election audits. Wolf argues that the state constitution prohibits passing legislation that addresses multiple, unrelated topics. Constitutional amendments have to pass both legislative chambers in two consecutive two-year legislative sessions. They are then put on the ballot for the voters to decide. They would appear as separate questions at that time.

The Central Bucks School Board voted 6-3 last week on a book screening policy for the district's libraries. "The policy is intended to make sure that materials are age appropriate and to make sure that materials do not contain gratuitous, salacious, extremely explicit unwarranted content that would take away from the literary intent," Central Bucks School District Superintendent Dr. Abe Lucabaugh said. "Just because a book is challenged doesn't necessarily mean that that book will end up being removed," Lucabaugh said. "We have not had any formal challenges placed by any parent to date."

The new policy wasn't embraced by all, calling this a book ban. "Schools cannot exclude materials from the library just because they disagree with the ideas that are in those books," said Rich Ting, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania. "Excluding and censorship really takes power away from students and parents to make decisions about what books they look at and read." "Schools should be a marketplace of ideas where students should be free to explore things and discuss them with their parents to figure out if it’s right for them," Ting said.
