Where is Dave Persing when the City Needs Him?
“They’ll never find me down here!”
The world’s media are laying siege to Sunbury. For the past few days they have been engaged in a feeding frenzy stirred up by a local reporter, and the claimed revelations of his exclusive Friday night interview with “Craig’s List Killer”, Miranda Barbour, in Northumberland County Jail.
Everyone from Dr. Phil to Fox News wants a piece of the action and to find a different news angle on the lurid details. They want to speak to the reporter, to the prison warden and to police chief, Steve Mazzeo. Above all they want to learn more about the young accused and her grizzly list of alleged murder victims – “I stopped counting when I got to 22!”

Persing’s Continuing Membership Questioned.
Recent news that the mayor of Poughkeepsie NY, along with many others, has resigned from the Michael Bloomberg group, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG), raises once again the issue of the continuing membership and support for this group by our own Mayor Persing.

Poughkeepsie Mayor John Tkazyik, in a recent statement, blew the whistle about the group’s true intentions – total disarmament of all law-abiding gun owners.
“Under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens,” Tkazyik said, confirming what many already suspected about the group.

For the first time since the 1800’s there will be a second newspaper in Sunbury, PA. Joe Bartello is the publisher and, along with his daughter and editor, Britani, is the driving force behind the re-launch of The Sunbury American – initially a monthly newspaper to be distributed free of charge from local businesses throughout the area.

As they see it, the American’s mission will be to provide an alternative news source to Sunbury and its surrounding locales in a way calculated to promote a sense of pride and community in the citizens. Its content will give readers the facts and knowledge needed to develop their personal opinions, analyze the actions of their elected representatives, and empower them in the protection of their freedoms and liberties.
