         Robert Field, the editor of, informed me today that he is sitting in front of and getting ready to review eight inches worth of documents between the Penn Square Partners (LNP & High Industries) and the City of Lancaster regarding the CRIZ award for the Marriott Hotel expansion!
         Field requested the documents under a Right to Know request. The city refused. Field appealed and the state sided and ruled in favor of Field.
         The City of Lancaster has now appealed the state’s decision in the Lancaster Common Pleas Court but Field said that his attorney negotiated the release of some of the documents (8 inches worth and some with redactions that are being challenged) and there are more to go!
         Well done, Robert, and we eagerly await your analysis!

    UPDATE 12-2-17 –  The video of Joy Behar and “The View” regarding Michael Flynn that was below on this post was “disabled” and I have deleted it. It is available on YouTube – click here.


    Have a safe and happy Friday night!


    Randy Patterson

     —  The vast majority of CRIZ money is going toward existing projects. Weren’t we promised that most of the CRIZ money would be used outside downtown Lancaster?
       Randy Patterson’s involvement here is a CLEAR and INCONTROVERTIBLE conflict of interest. Right or wrong, good decision or bad, Randy was the catalyst in making the stadium happen and for the County to be encumbered with that debt. He should have NO role or say of any kind in deciding how additional public funds would flow to this project. He has NO (ZERO) business being involved here. His presence and role on the CRIZ board, regardless of his motives, is pure CORRUPTION.
    —  Lancaster county corruption is alive and well! This is racketeering between the elected officials, and their deep pocket buddies!
    These are some of the comments under the LNP “insider” article, “Authority may ask that some —or all— of nearly $1M remaining CRIZ money go to improving Clipper Magazine Stadium,” (click here).
           And LNP, the “media organization” whose job is to hold these public officials accountable, is in the thick of it and on the receiving end of millions of these dollars.
         Who is going to hold these officials accountable? Who is going to call for an investigation? Who is going to stop this unbelievable corruption?
    Please check back later today.



    1. This comment from “Frank Lee” came in under the below story and I’m also moving it here:

      The Hamilton Club boys are patting one another on the back as they gaze out at the sheeple of Lancaster and saying “man are we going to get fat off this hog!”

    6. This is all being done between the city, private entities and tax monies. And they have the right to REDACT information??? That’s insane.

    7. Now we know why “The View” video that was on this site yesterday was disabled! The reporter referenced by Joy Behar, Brian Ross, has been suspended for four weeks with no pay according to ABC news.
