    LYING LYONS?

    — & HORSE THIEF? —    

        Wow I didn’t know you could postpone a hearing because “you’re not available”. Smh
    Posted on Lancaster Online’s Facebook page under the above story (click here).  
         This is very strange and Lyons had at least a month’s notice of today’s date. What could he be busy doing?
          I wonder if the two bail bondsmen who each put up $500,000 are getting nervous?
         Lyons is no longer living with his wife who is seeking a divorce. He is now living with his mother. When the Sheriff’s Office tried to serve him on September 17th in one of the many bankruptcy related filings the result is below:


    — NOT CHARLIE’S BADGE! —

        

         Yes, apparently someone stole Charlie’s badge! From the CrimeWatch entry there is this (click here): 
         On Thursday 04 October 2018, Off. Berry and Charlie were on mounted patrol in downtown Lancaster City. At some point during his patrol, Charlie’s badge holder came loose from the harness.
         Off. Herr was in the area of W. King St. and Prince St. and located the leather portion that held the badge, but the badge was missing and presumed to have been removed from the leather holder. 
         The bottom rocker portion of the badge is engraved “H-2”. We have included a photo of what the actual badge looks like in the leather holder. The missing/stolen item is the metal.
         It’s lucky that there are lots of Safety Coalition cameras in the area (please see the above insert from the camera map and the blue arrow was inserted indicating W. King and Prince Streets). Can the Lancaster City Police solve this crime? Will the cameras finally prove helpful?

    *     Today, MAW has 10 employees, down from about 25 in April 2017. They’re divided between Reading and Lancaster, with Lancaster accounting for about half its business, he said.

    From the LNP article linked to below.

    Stuhldreher

          This is simply unacceptable and downright ridiculous reporting by Tim Stuhldreher and his LNP editors. What business do they have in Reading? I’ve been asking this question since March of last year and no one has answered it (click here):

         Where else has MAW “rolled out?” They created one hot spot downtown in the city of Reading! That’s it! Supposedly they have “institutional clients” and cellular companies using them but we have no idea who they are!
          You would think that after two years and over $5 million dollars, someone at LNP would directly ask MAW president Frank Wiczkowski: “Exactly what other business do you have?” And if they have all this business in Reading, why did they need a loan? And why didn’t they go to a bank for the loan?
    *******

    $14,900 MONTHLY!

                            
        

         Last spring, when MAW began rolling out service to business and residential customers, the city loaned it $1.5 million for startup costs.
         The first payment was due this month; It was received Thursday, city business administrator Patrick Hopkins confirmed.
         The monthly installments of just over $14,900 are to continue over the next seven years. Asked if MAW will be able to make the payments, Wiczkowski said: “Absolutely.”
    From the September 16th LNP article (under the sidebar), “Some LanCity Connect customers lose service as PPL removes ‘unauthorized’ equipment,” (click here).
         LIP News will put in monthly Right to Know requests to make sure the city receives the payments.
    Please check back later today.

    1. You would think someone would ask. But. This is LNP. Home to chicken corn soup issues and secret dining restaurant reviews. “I says to Mabel. Mabel I says. When are they gonna do a story on red beet egg? Mabel looks at me and says….”

      We’ve come a long way from the days of that old western, Wanted–Dead or Alive. Now, just skip out… where’s Dog the Bounty Hunter when you need him?

    3. I’m thinking Lyons may have hidden himself away in rehab.

    4. Interesting. I hadn’t thought of that. He wasn’t in rehab on September 19th however. From the Sheriff’s return of service:
