     KEEPING HER IN THE SYSTEM!

      This woman spent more time in prison for kicking a dog than a man would for beating on a woman or molesting a child. Almost 2 yrs on parole and another 3 yrs of probation just to make sure they keep her in the system. She also has time served. Same disturbing judge that believes pedophilia is nothing.

     Exactly! And this is the same Judge, President Judge Dennis Reinaker, who we just learned was one of five judges involved in porngate. When will LNP tell the public?

A HOT TRIGGER?

     There are several items missing from the DA’s press release regarding Ashley Gaston kicking the dog (see below in this post).
—  This was a newly acquired pet (a pitbull named “Trigger”) and she had only had it for about two weeks.
—  She alleges the dog got aggressive and tried to bite her son.
—  She has not had “Trigger” all this time – the dog has been in the care of the SPCA.
—  As noted in the press release – she spent the summer – three months – in jail.
     Further:
—  If “Trigger” is aggressive and she allowed this dog to remain around her children she could be charged with child endangerment if anything happened.
—  Anyone adopting “Trigger” should be informed that the dog attempted to bite a child.

**   Meanwhile, 78-year-old John Snoke has entered a not guilty plea to two separate summary offenses for “caring for” feral cats. According to his dockets, Snoke is scheduled to have a summary trial on both citations before District Judge David P. Miller on January 10th, 2020.

*** BREAKING NEWS ***

* The DA’s press release is below (click here).

     A Lancaster woman who repeatedly kicked her dog will be under court supervision for nearly five years and surrender ownership of the dog, a Lancaster County judge ordered Thursday.
     Ashley Gaston pleaded guilty to felony aggravated cruelty to an animal and two related misdemeanors regarding the June 7 beating of a pit bull, “Trigger,” outside Gaston’s Beaver Street home. A witness video-recorded the beating.
     Lancaster County President Judge Dennis Reinaker sentenced Gaston to time served – she spent three months in prison – to be followed by about 20 months on parole, then three years of probation.
     Gaston must surrender ownership of “Trigger” and pay $3,009 in restitution regarding care for the dog due to the incident, according to Assistant District Attorney Christine Wilson.
     Lancaster city police charged Gaston with kicking and stomping the dog’s head and commanding her 9-year-old son to also beat the dog.
     The dog sustained cuts and contusions, including bruised lungs, and received care at Philadelphia veterinarian clinic.
      In court, Gaston apologized to police, the city, her son, and the dog, according to ADA Wilson.
      Gaston also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of endangering a child and corruption of minors.
     Officer Ryan Burgett filed charges.

DOWN THE TOILET!

    

From today’s LNP editorial (click here).

     Isn’t this special? LNP is telling folks how to be smarter in their water usage.
     Seeing as LNP and their off the tax-rolls Marriott Hotel are partly responsible for this increase, why doesn’t the editorial board just shut the hell up!

    I know a guy in Florida who was ordained over the internet, has friends over on Sundays where he “preaches” and writes off his million dollar plus waterfront home. Lol

    Does anyone really expect LNP to provide FACTS about their beloved city that could possible be construed as shedding a negative light on a “vibrant, robust” city??

    Does anyone really expect LNP to investigate/question anything that the Mayor, Police Department, District Attorney’s Office says??

    Does anyone really expect LNP to be in existence after Peggy is no longer here??

    Despite what the Mayor and the newspaper say, the City doesn’t have a revenue problem, they have a SPENDING problem.

    Municipality budget population per capita expenditures
    Lan City $115,000,000.00 60000 $1,916.67
    East Lamp $25,000,000.00 17000 $1,470.59
    East Hemp $17,500,000.00 24000 $729.17
    West Hemp $12,000,000.00 16500 $727.27
    Manheim Township $26,000,000.00 40000 $650.00
    West Lamp $6,500,000.00 16000 $406.25
    Lancaster Twp $6,000,000.00 16000 $375.00
    Manor $6,000,000.00 20000 $300.00

      Here are the property tax rates for each of those municipalities. City residents are paying 5x – 10x as much in property tax rates.

      And the city has higher rates for sewer, water, trash, and they’re the only municipal body that as a storm water tax.

      Getting this money isn’t the problem, wasting the money is the real issue.

      Municipality millage
      Lancaster City 11.7
      Manheim 2.034
      East Lamp 1.9
      West hemp 1.85
      East Hemp 1.01
      Manor 0.99
      West Lamp 0.986
      Lancaster Twp 0.91

      Thanks for this. Double like. I wish there were enough like minded people downtown to get some traction in questioning the cities out of control spending. Lancasters financial system is not the states problem. And there is no room to blame it on the state when they just gave the city 7.5 million for economic development.

      I am not poor by any metric but I am finding living in the city to be financially unsustainable. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to last here.
