Central Bucks West cancels rest of football season amid hazing allegations

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- Officials at Centra Bucks High School have canceled the football team's remaining two games after they concluded rookie players were subjected to what the superintendent calls "humiliating" initiation rites.

School officials say the hazing at CBW occurred during the pre-season, and included a requirement that rookies grab another player's genitals while fully clothed.

Wall Street soars 216 points following strong corporate earnings

NEW YORK (AP) -- A combination of strong company earnings and encouraging economic reports, both in the U.S. and Europe, gave the stock market another day of solid gains on Thursday.

Caterpillar jumped after its third-quarter earnings report was better than Wall Street analysts had been expecting.

Survey: Dating abuse running rampant among teens

NEW YORK (AP) -- From violence to verbal taunts, abusive dating behavior is pervasive among America's adolescents, according to a new, federally funded survey. It says a majority of boys and girls who date describe themselves as both victims and perpetrators.

Sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, the National Survey on Teen Relationships and Intimate Violence was conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago, a prominent research center which provided preliminary results to The Associated Press.

Ebola Hysteria: A crash course in fear and how it hurts us

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ebola is giving Americans a crash course in fear.

Yet, they're incredibly less likely to get the disease than to get sick worrying about it.

First, the reality check: More Americans have married Kim Kardashian -- three -- than contracted Ebola in the U.

For ex-'Nova star Dante Cunningham, a long struggle to clear his name

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- It was after 4 a.m. when Dante Cunningham pulled his truck back into the driveway of his suburban Minneapolis home and saw the police waiting for him.

Officers put the handcuffs on the Minnesota Timberwolves' reserve as soon as his feet hit the pavement. The reality of his situation and the domestic assault charges that were on their way didn't really sink in until he was lying in a jail cell and the lights went out.

Jarrod S.'s Review of Vic Sushi Bar - Philadelphia (2/5) on Yelp

I was very surprised by everyone's raving about this place. There is so much better sushi in the world. I have no idea how this place achieved its current high rating. It's tiny: maybe 10 stools and a…

Jim N.'s Review of Qdoba Mexican Grill - Voorhees (3/5) on Yelp

I had never heard of this place, but I gave it a shot anyway. It's setup like a subway, where you tell them what fillings you want in your burrito. The process felt rushed for someone who didn't…

The emphatic and consistent words used to describe the borough's newly hired Code Enforcement subcontractor are, " arrogant, ignorant, impossible to work with, never shows up for scheduled times to inspect.  Doesn't return phone calls, then shows up with an attitude when a follow up phone call is…

With all the discussion regarding its visual beauty or not and maintenance, are the residence of this town aware that between the use of lawn chemicals/treatment and the continued use of mosquito spraying creates runoff making the lake the reservoir for all these contaminates? May look beautiful on its surface but may be a body of water that will not sustain aquatic life, basically dead water. Where is the discussion about that...Hmmm, maybe just my issue or…

Toward Safer Rail Tank Cars

Posted by Jim Butt on September 30, 2014 at 8:08pm 1 Comment

Here's an article that should get some folks attention.  The CSX line along our borough line uses these older rail cars and they remain a hazard until a new design is developed and tested.  CSX appears to be opposed to the upgrades.
