"Education is a full and holistic process. We've reduced it to a bunch of high-stakes tests that don't seem to me to be tied to the specific, comprehensive skills that we want students to have."

About 150 first responders, from local, state, and federal agencies gathered at the Lazaretto Ballroom in Tinicum Township Delaware County last week. The training exercise was for this new danger – crude-by-rail shipments. The room was full of uniformed first responders from some of Delaware County’s 80 separate volunteer fire companies.
The increasing number of rail cars carrying crude oil through Pennsylvania means a rising risk of accidents. Recent derailments caused trains to explode and incinerate areas along tracks in Illinois and West Virginia, threatening waterways. So far, Pennsylvania has been lucky. Within the past year and a half, oil trains traveling through the state derailed

"You really shouldn't see a report where there is zero changes being requested, because there's ongoing continued improvement plans that the programs are supposed to be looking at."
(Harrisburg) -- Picking up a phone to get help for drug or alcohol addiction is hard enough. But how can you be sure a facility will fulfill its promise to get you clean? When visiting a drug or alcohol treatment facility, inspectors have a long checklist.

"You stand by me
I stand by you
If there is a fight I'm the one to come to
Good and bad, times we've been through
You got my back and I got yours too"

The situation is particularly dire in the city of York. The city's police and fire retirement systems regularly rank among the worst-funded of the Commonwealth's 2,000 or so local pensions.

State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale says the situation will worsen in the years ahead, absent legislative action. The situation is particularly dire in the city of Y...

Introduction
I love to make great radio and continually look for better ways to tell stories that matter.

I'm the Multimedia News Director at witf (89.5, 93.3 in Chambersburg and 99.9 in Lancaster), central Pennsylvania's public radio station. I also handle the duties of the regional host of Morning Edition.  I just wrapped up a nearly three-year stint as All Things Considered host. We cover 17 counties with a staff of four full-time news folks and a part-time reporter/producer.  

Having spent the last 12 years at the station, I've handled pretty much every job in the news department. My longest tenure was eight years as the Morning Edition host/reporter.

Needless to say, I don't miss getting up at Oh-Dark-30 anymore.
Bragging rights
I'm married to Amy Lambert, a wonderful, caring woman.....l love to play ice hockey, but finding the time is a big challenge....and I've been blessed to have my work honored with a 2013 duPont-Columbia Silver Baton (the Pulitzer of broadcast and digital journalism), on four occasions with a National Edward R. Murrow award (as well as a share of a fifth and sixth) and 13 RTDNA Regional Murrows. I'm also a 2012 Kneeland Fellow. Let's not forget I'm a fan of Pittsburgh sports teams....yes, that includes the Pirates.
