     Tonight’s city council committee meeting should be livestreamed on the city’s YouTube channel (click here). The meeting begins at 6:00 pm.


****  This is a possible correction. I tried to call District Judge Edward Tobin’s office this afternoon but no one answered and apparently they are closed due to the weather. Jared Chrobot’s docket states his preliminary arraignment was yesterday and was held before District Judge Andrew T. LeFever. It was Sunday so LeFever may have been filling in for Tobin. If it was not Tobin, I apologize and I will try to establish absolutely who set Chrobot’s unsecured bail tomorrow.


     …Jared Ray Chrobot, 26, was charged with a felony count of aggravated assault and a misdemeanor of simple assault after he hit a person “multiple times” with a metal baseball bat on Jan. 31 around 8:06 p.m. in the 600 block of Snyder Hill Road in Warwick Township, police said. 
     …Chrobot was released on $100,000 unsecured bail, according to court documents.
From the LNP story pictured above (click here).
     Unbelievable! A white man in Lititz can hit a person multiple times with a baseball bat and send them to the hospital and still get unsecured bail! Amazing. It is so good to be white in Lancaster County!
     Vote District Judge Edward Tobin, who set his bail, out of office! Oh, and below on the right is a profile “picture” from one of Chrobot’s Facebook pages!  This man needs to be behind bars. If you see him, leave the area immediately!
**   Oh, and the final entry on the agenda under “PERSONNEL COMMITTEE: Nomination of Ismail Smith-Wade-El for reappointment to the Public Art Advisory Board.”
     Three comments regarding this:
1. No one seems to know how many hyphens there are in his name!
2. He is actually a better council president than I predicted. He keeps the meetings moving and yet is very careful to give everyone their say.
3. Should he be on the Public Art Advisory Board? Remember this horrific artwork recommended by him and the Board for the proposed Christian Street garage? What ever happened with that? I will try to find out. 


*    City council has a committee meeting tonight beginning at 6:00 pm and I assume the weather will have no impact because of Covid-19 these meetings are virtual and the council members are at home.
     Please see their agenda below and the last category, “COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE.” What wildlife killing contests are there in Lancaster? What in the world? 
     On a more serious note, please see the “FINANCE COMMITTEE” category – “addressing municipal fiber-optic network financing” is one of the topics. Is this LanCity connect? And why do they need to appoint “a special counsel for PUC matters?” How many law firms have they hired? How many millions have they spent on LanCity Connect?
     Oh, and what do the Human Relations Commission Board members do? When is the last time you saw them in the news? 
     This should be an interesting meeting!

     Oh, no! Not groundhog’s day!
Please check back later today.

    So do we vote Tobin out or not? Also, why not just call court administrator? They do the sked.

    Old Jared doesn’t seem to have a record in any surrounding counties. It’ll be interesting to see what his reason was. Plus he was found on a roof !

    I can see being arraigned on a Sunday but the unsecured bail is wrong.

    Unsecured bail for beating the snot out of three people and sending them to the hospital. Who’s he related to?

    We all have to do our part in stopping the spread of COVID. And Groundhog’s don’t wear face diapers.

    Am I the only one who is going to miss groundhog day this year? It’s not only a fun tie to my elementary school years in Ephrata in the 1950’s, but as a proud Pennsylvania Dutchie, I like to remember my heritage! Take care during your “snow event.”

    There was that 3 or 4 million $ invoice that MAW was going after the city for sometime prior to the pandemic. The city was at least putting up a token legal fight at that time. Everything has been radio silence since from the city and LNP.

    If that got paid the bill is WAY over $10 million so far.

    Well Now,
    The Groung Hog Club does do some charity giving, but for the most part it’s a all boys drinking club. Your wife isn’t allow so you can shoot pool and do shots !
