Politically divided and balanced

Centre County is the most politically divided county in the state. There are almost as many Republicans as Democrats, and there's about 15 percent Independents.

This isn't the case in much of Pennsylvania, where counties are one party or another.

Given our division, we strive to present balance and we hit a home run on that count today on the Views page.

Writing today are three of our community columnists: Steve Hambric offering the Independent view, Steve Lachman offering the liberal view, and Joe Filko offering the conservative view.

We appreciate the contributions of these writers, and today they strike a remarkable balance.
