The Debt Limit Debate Continues
 
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA

It's in the press every day. Hurriedly prepared speeches break into prime time TV viewing. On one side President Obama wants US debt limits increased substantially. House speaker John Boehner with the backing of Congress and Senate believe spending is out of control and adding more debt is not the answer. When you apply household wisdom, it's hard to side with Obama. As citizens, we are schooled to live within our means. Too much debt, like credit cards, are like quicksand. Borrowing... Read More

Lockout End Gets Eagles Back to the Nest

started: 07/26/11 4:22 am | updated: 07/26/11 4:22 am
 
The NFL players and owners finally agreed to terms of a new deal that should keep football going uninterrupted for another 10 years. This is good news because Birds fans have been growing increasingly disgusted hearing about the business side of the game. Eagles fans resent both sides of an argument between millionaires and billionaires when it interferes with football. Hopefully the damage is minimal and the Eagles can get a lot done in just a few days. Training camp is shortened. The... Read More

Are you free this summer? Wildwood beaches are. Next year may be a different story.

Wildwood's mayor, Ernie Troiano Jr. thinks that due to the rising cost of cleaning up after the pigs who leave so much trash on Wildwood's beaches, it is inevitable the last free beaches on the Jersey shore will have to start charging.

Keeping the beaches clean costs the city about $1.5 million per year, Troiano said. Crews are on the beach before sunrise to rake through the sand.... Read More

If the Philadelphia Housing Authority can't do a better job explaining the $1 million it spent on legal fees, the PHA will have to reimburse the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The local agency claimed $1 million in legal expenses including more than $150,000 as a retainer for former City Controller Jonathan Saidel. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which provides most of PHA's budget, is seeking the money because the local agency has "failed to provide... Read More

Starting January 1, 2012 the tolls on the PA turnpike will be hiked 10% for all those paying cash. There will be no change in the toll rate for EZpass lanes.

The Turnpike commission is hoping to raise revenues by $23 million or about 3% with this toll increase. Increases have also been approved for 2013 and 2014.
