Come enjoy shade in Bellefonte

Where are the trees?

I am a part-time resident of State College. I lived here full time from 1997-2012. Downtown State College was always charming. It may not have had every convenience, but it was always a pleasant place to spend a few hours.

Time to act on health bill

“AHCA could cost Pennsylvania 85,000 jobs by 2026,” states a recent CDT front page headline.

Pa. can pave way for viable future

Fracking and other forms of resource drilling are not the way to a sustainable future. These forms of obtaining energy have been proven to increase cancer rates as well as damage major organs. Although working in fossil fuel industries may seem like the only employment option for some Pennsylvanians, there are ways to work toward the solution for a healthier Earth.
