*** On September 25th I posted this (click here for the original):
— I am told that the Lancaster City Police were doing a prostitution sting last night so be prepared for pictures of “Johns” to be splashed all over the news in the next few days.
And sure enough – click here!
** The article is now online with the title, “East Lampeter Township residents told not to file local taxes over rift with tax collector,” (click here).
* LNP has the below shocking story on the front page of the print edition this morning (it is not currently online). And there is not one mention of County Treasurer Amber Green in this article, but according to the county website (click here):
A fundamental duty is the receipt of county taxes. The real estate tax is the main source of revenue for county government. The county treasurer is responsible for collecting taxes on approximately 106,000 of the 189,000 taxable properties in Lancaster County.
So why isn’t Green mentioned in the LNP article?
GETTING CRABBY WITH IT?
State Senator Scott Martin eating crabs on Lancaster County Treasurer Amber Green’s (Augustowski) cover photo on her Facebook page.
Is LNP going to inform their readers that newly elected State Senator Scott Martin and Lancaster County Treasurer Amber Green are getting married tomorrow? Is it newsworthy?
Does Sam Janesch, LNP’s political reporter and a one year graduate of Penn State, think it is newsworthy? Would his journalism professors tell him this is something the public has a right and a need to know?
Does LNP Executive Editor Barbara Hough Roda, who states on her Twitter account, “LNP executive editor and mom excited about great journalism, American history, politics, interesting people, Lancaster County, @Cubs,” think it is newsworthy? Does the public have a right and a need to know?
And LNP just started The Caucus, supposedly a watchdog publication covering Harrisburg and the Senator’s and Representative’s actions. Do those reporters think a State Senator marrying the Lancaster County Treasurer is newsworthy?
Will LNP inform the public that their State Senator, Scott Martin, is marrying their Lancaster County Treasurer, Amber Green, tomorrow?
Please check back later today.
