Urge lawmakers:


End property tax


Homeowners, Senior Citizens, Business Owners.


Did you receive your school property tax? Did it show an increase? You can do something about it if you want to eliminate it. It’s time for you to take action.


There are two bills in Harrisburg , HB and SB 76 elimination of school property tax that has been introduced. Unfortunately we have two stubborn bulls who are trying to stop these bills from being introduced on the floor for a vote. They are Majority Leader Mike Turzai and Finance Committee Republican Chairman Kerry


Benninghoff. Phyllis Mundy is Finance Committee Democratic chair.


We have 89 co-sponsors in the House and 22 co-sponsors in the senate. We need a few more co-sponsors. This is the course of action you can take: Call your elected officials that are not co-sponsors and demand them to co-sponsor and vote for these bills or write them a letter.


In our area we have Mundy (570-283-9622), Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski (570-825-5934), Senator John Blake (570-207-2881), Senator John Gordner (570-784-3464). Tell them to be a co-sponsor, no excuses.


These so-called ring leaders who are in control of the House are against these bills: Rep. Mike Turzai, majority leader, 125 Hillvue Lane, 1st floor McCandless, Pa. 15237, (412-369-2230) and Rep. Kerry Benninghoff, 140 West High St., Bellefonte, Pa. 16823 (814-355-1300).


It is a shame how these two men can control the House members of the Finance committee and tell them to deny your rights. Contact them. Tell them the Constitution grants us the right to own property and the government’s responsibility is to protect that right.


Now pay attention how bad do you want school property eliminated? The Luzerne County CAPTaxes, one of 79 Pennsylvania Taxpayer Cyber Coalition members in Pennsylvania, will hold a meeting on August 15 at 7 p.m. at the Larksville Municipal Building on State Street

Thanks for help


in Poppy Drive


On behalf of the Larksville American Legion, we would like to give our appreciation to all of the local merchants for their support and who allowed us to sell our poppies during the Poppy Drive for the month of May. It was extremely successful.


This is the only fundraiser our post conducts annually.


We would also like to thank all of the patrons who made a donation to the Poppy Drive 2013. Without you we could not help support the veterans programs, children’s Christmas and Easter parties and many functions.


Thank you very much for your support and God Bless America.


Mr. Dennis C. Garvey
