Who Wants a New Constitution?

Our local Congressional representative, Scott Conklin, has begun circulating nomination petitions for a Lt. Governor run later this year.

Conklin, a Democrat, has been the representative of Pennsylvania’s 77th district, which includes State College, since 2006. During his term, Conklin has been a strong supporter of PHEAA, a Pennsylvania organization that helps students with their pursuit of higher education. He has also helped Penn State secure grants and supported our basketball team when they were doing better than they are now.

With the primary election coming up May 18, he only has a few months to prepare. Even if he runs for Lt. Governor, he will still be allowed to run for re-election in his house seat, so he’s not taking a big risk. Conklin’s main motivation for running is to help reform PA’s constitution. Considering how abysmal the state’s budget process has been in the past few years, this might not be a bad idea.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
