Pennsylvania is in the top 10 when it comes to the number of alcohol and drug arrests of college students. So says a recent study done by Project Know. Even more alarming is the disclosure that East Stroudsburg University is in the top 10 nationally.

Letters To The Editor

The idea of a global ideological battle between our democracy and communism (Russia and China) has preoccupied our leadership since World War II. While this has been important and must continue to get our attention, smaller radical ideologies have emerged with very real and dangerous consequences.
