It’s a house divided. Actually, it’s the Senate, and they were split 50-50.

The Pennsylvania Senate rejected a measure Monday night to eliminate billions of dollars in school property taxes statewide by replacing the funds with increases in state tax rates on sales and income.

The preliminary vote on Senate bill 76 ended in a tie 24-24. But Lt. Gov. Mike Stack voted against the bill to break the deadlock.

Letters To The Editor

Dear Editor,

While I usually try to avoid reading Ann Coulter's column, the headline "A Culture of Child Rape" caught my eye.

Coulter asserts "There's a cultural acceptance of child rape in Latino culture that doesn't exist in even the most dysfunctional American ghettos."

I find this statement to be racist and misinformed.
