A pretty stupid study is getting some local press, calling Erie the third unhappiest city in America.

This is the same study that has four Louisiana city’s as the happiest.

Right…

I’ve been very disappointed in the Erie Times News’s coverage of PA teacher pension reform and it’s heavy bias in favor of it, much in support of Tom Corbett’s teacher-crushing agenda.

What a joke.

Support PA Education, folks, not the GOP agenda to weaken public education and tax breaks for corporations.

Wagon Wheel Bar & Grill, which Smith has been operating since late 2010, is adjacent to the $2 million construction project at the intersection of Routes 19 and 97 south of Waterford.

The work, designed to improve safety and efficiency for the nearly 12,000 motorists who travel daily through the busy intersection, has been a “damn nightmare” for the tavern owner.

Smith said he’s losing about $5,000 a week in business because of the project.

"As long as they’re there," he said as he pointed out the window at several construction workers, "no one’s coming in here. … The (temporary) road confuses people … You feel like you’re actually driving into the construction zone."

A typical daily lunch crowd at the Wagon Wheel was about 20 to 25 customers before the project began, Smith said. Those numbers are now down to single digits, he said.

Beer sales have dropped from 50 cases a week to five cases, and food sales plummeted 50 percent, he said.

Grapevines don’t want you to discover this secret about Erie, PA

For sixty miles or so, along the southeastern shores of Lake Erie, you’ll notice the air smells a little different. Not the typical fresh lake air that you get driving along the coast of the Great Lakes. No….once you are around…

The signature of Erie County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper is among those on a letter from faith-based leaders across the country who want President Obama to create a religious exemption from his planned executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against gays and lesbians in terms of hiring.

The letter was sent to the White House on Tuesday and made public Wednesday. Included among its 14 signatures is one from “Kathy Dahlkemper County Executive, Erie County Pa. Former Member of Congress.”

Dahlkemper could not be reached for comment today.

What the fuck, Kathy Dahlkemper? Why would you sign this?  What… what the fuck?!
