  • Another veteran squares off with VA for benefits

    Many veterans say getting the Department of Veterans Affairs to grant them the benefits they've earned is like pulling teeth. The VA actually pulled Anthony Basti's teeth. He wants it to finish the dental work he believes should have followed. He said...
  • Rural roads pose greater safety risk

    Q: I read with interest earlier this year the report on Pennsylvania highway fatalities for 2012. There were a lot of data in addition to the 2 percent increase in total roadway fatalities versus 2011 that might suggest 2012 did not qualify as another...
  • Kathleen Kane furor over corruption probe may be excessive
