"It happens again, and he might be out until the playoffs start. So This is the crazy thing about it. You know, you try to be as careful with these guys as you can. And even then it doesn't work. And the Yankees are at times overly cautious. And I think that was you know, when you heard Aaron Judge come out and say that, you know he he was 100% after a couple of days. Well, okay, if he wouldn't you know, he got hurt his second at bat back coming back from the injury, So I'm not sure it's valiant of him to to say that and ah, It's what fans want to hear. And they get mad at management for putting the player on the injured list. Um, but clearly there was something there that, um That he aggravated again and now now between between judge Between Glaber Torrez, Giancarlo Stanton. No digital. Maybe you could be back this weekend and we'll see. You know he's I think he just had to go out for parts. Really, You know, he's the machine right? So they just had a way for the parts, and now he's back. Hey, had been hitting Pretty well from what reports were counter fully from the Scranton Times. Tribune has a perch outside the stadium at Scranton, somewhere where he can kind of peer into the ball park to see what's happening, and his reports were that LeMay, you at least had had some pretty good sessions, and Aaron Boone indicated that he could be back this weekend. But there's still a lot of guys missing here, and I've equated this a few times this week, too. Because of the playoff format that you have this year. This is like Duke or North Carolina in early February, missing three starters and being in fourth place in the A. C. C. It's not imperative for them, too. Get everybody back right now. It's imperative for everybody to be back when the tournament starts, and that's the position the Yankees Aaron so long as they can just hold on to one of their positions. They still have to win some games, which is why the latte last night's games are so impactful. And meaningful because you had those games with a lead late and your healthy relievers were there to lock it down. But a CZ long as they're in a playoff position. They are able to wait for these guys to get healthy. Hopefully they are and they bring back healthy team and you you rolled the dice then and you take your chances in October, but baseball is created on the tournament. This year, essentially And that means less of an urgency to you know, to bring back players for a stretch run. Yu yu need him healthy for when the games count. And as long as you're in that position, you could hold that position. Then do that. You know that plan has some merit. Well, they may not only have to be healthy, but they have to be game ready. I mean, Chapman. This was his second time out. You know, the velocity was 97 98 nothing to sneeze at. But you don't see the 101 103 and all of that stuff, his slider. I mean, he threw a couple of really devastating sliders, too. But he's not. You know at that peak level where he's throwing hard got note that you know his. His command is a little bit off and You know, wound up the vitamin last night. I think he in his first game. I believe it 101 in one of those games, and he looked back, But yeah, then you know, 11 days and that's what a lot of these guys are dealing with. Two. There's Ah Oh, the Yankees played ah week ago Thursday. They played against Tampa Bay were finished that Siri's, and then they missed Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That was the Mets Siri's. They had an off day Monday and a rain out on Tuesday, so they play again on Wednesday. They have an off day on Thursday and You've got a lot of these guys. You know, As Adam Ottavino said last night, it's absolutely a factor in how relievers feel, but you're not going to use it as an excuse. Um, but You know, I have said before many times, there are reasons and there are excuses. You know, a lot of it really depends on what? How you want to take it. You know, it's a reason. But if you don't like it, that is probably an excuse. So I feel like No. The sporadic games the Yankees have played have definitely been a factor for a lot of different reasons. But now they go in the opposite direction. Last night began a stretch where they're gonna end up playing 33 games and 31 days. They have a Obviously another double header scheduled for tomorrow. They might have a game today. You know, it depends on the weather here. So yeah, There are a lot of issues like that, and there's no perfect solution. But you know, right now, that's you know what you're talking about is absolutely a factor. One thing I can't figure I mean, obviously, there's a lot of confusion this season and everything going on. But You know, a Yankee I forget who it Wass was like what the Mets doing on the field celebrating. You know, they have a lot to do that after the game's over and Rose aerial, apparently with the Mets didn't know that the game was over. How do you not know that you're playing seven inning double letters that that I don't get it? Yeah, I didn't catch that part that I mean, I saw them celebrating. I heard them yelling, assault jump out in the field. I'm not sure what you're referring to, Uh, one of the Yankee players. I'll find it was in a column I read today, said, what are they doing that they can't do that? That's against the rules. And then he realized a minute. It's a seven inning game. Gotcha. I see. Yeah, Yes, At some point, you know, everybody has to remember. We all find ourselves when you see and you look up and you see certain guys warming up in the fourth inning of the 15 like, what's what's happening here and then you realize, you know you're Yeah, it's your condition to certain way and If you haven't Unless you've played a bunch of these, you know, And even then you're you're still not sure it's Ah, It's a little unusual. Your eye. It's It's a 20. It's actually something. Lord. Ask Aaron Boone. With and I have no chance yet in one of these sessions, like how many times during the course of a game do you have to remind yourself that it's seven innings?.

"So there we have media quoting to high profile African American officials, making the case that the chaos is real, and the danger is present, and it is a priority for Concern Hamilton County where Cincinnati is located, win for Hillary Clinton over trump fifty to forty three percent that happens to be the precise inverse of how the state of Ohio as a whole voted. My point is no matter how buffoonish or dangerous trump's words and photo ops were I. Think the people of say Cincinnati and surrounding areas are incredibly concerned not about that, but about the pressing threat right now in. In Charlotte North Carolina. The protests turned ugly as per the framing of W. S. O., C., and that peace and calm continued through that prayer rally, and throughout a number of other protests throughout yesterday afternoon, but then as night fell, some other protesters broke that peace, and seemed to take out their anger on uptown businesses, throwing scooters through window, smashing the front of a seven eleven and damaging a number of restaurants over in another potential swing state Pennsylvania the news from Scranton was calm I chose Scranton in Lackawanna, county which actually went for Clinton over trump by a small percent. There was voting in Pennsylvania today which dominated news, coverage and Cova stories were also prominent on the website of the Scranton Times Tribune for got to any story about protests or unrest. You encountered these headlines. Police seek man engaging in lewd behavior in Dickson. City parking lot Ali Font police warn of bear sighting. Done more crews respond to report of Women Dog Falling Into Creek but then the story Philadelphia police call local officers for backup Philadelphia Police Department, Asked area departments for backup as violent destructive riots continued into a second day Sunday, so let's go to Philadelphia of course the biggest city in the biggest swing state. There there were reporting on a local business owner who shot a looter to death of note. The business was a gun store here Fox News. Twenty nine with that report. This place had tried. To have a break in earlier this week, doing all the looting and so the longtime owner who trains people like Philadelphia, police officers how to shoot with deadly aim. happened to be armed, and inside waiting for the next somebody to try and loot his business, and sure enough at four o'clock he sees them breaking in on the surveillance. Now notice that gate the padlock on there has been snapped by bulk cutters that police later found inside, and then the front door kicked. Kicked in not done as police say professionally, but done very crudely kicked in the glass shattered, as you could see the sign here next to the garage firing enter through parking lot on front street, so it was telling you how everybody comes and goes Outta here and they figured they were GonNa. Come and go with a bunch of guns joined all this looting going on I. AM slightly conversant in Philadelphian, so I will translate from Fox News Twenty. Nine Steve Kelly's native pontoise. When he said this place had tried to have a break in. He meant the store had experienced. An attempted break in says happened to be armed waiting for the next somebody to loot. He's of course saying that the proprietor of the store was lying in wait and when the reporter says, they figured they were gonNA come and go with a bunch of guns. He was speaking. Speaking of the prospective robbers, and you know what maybe they should've expected. The owner of firing line, gun, range and gun store to be armed, but Philadelphians know how to interpret such sentiments there mayor Jim Kenney did so as well. He said he was quote deeply troubled at the ease with which another life has been taken admits this chaos, but also said quote. Looting has consequences..

"Can take when using public restrooms or visiting family and friends homes well so as we've been saying as we progress in in all of our counties to the yellow zone at the end of next week and then on into the green zone we still want people to be very careful and very vigilant about their potential like exposure to covert dying teen we want people to continue to social distance we want people to continue to wear masks we want people to continue to wash their hands on a very frequent basis to use hand sanitizer on a frequent basis Anna to take precautions to avoid exposure to this respiratory virus as much as they possibly can from W. ESA should parents in the yellow zone allow their children to have playdates under what circumstances would that be okay in the yellow zone I would really try to limit something like play dates I think that that would be more appropriate for for the green zone so we know that sometimes they'll be some interactions but overall I mean if counties are still in yellow than yellow means caution and we want people to contain that type of caution in terms of their daily activities from the Scranton times Tribune on NPR Saturday the co founder of the coal the tracking project question counting the results of antibody tests and virus tests as positives could you address this sure so as we described over the last week or so we are counting in a body tests in our general positive case count for the day however the on our website in all of our thinking we do separate that we have confirmed cases where there has been a confirmed positive case test result of covert nineteen for the virus itself and then we have probable cases most the vast majority of the probable cases are those who have had very close contact with someone who with a positive test but they themselves had not been tested but they didn't kill him we have a very small number of antibody tests actually less than one percent of the total number of positives are in that in a body test pocket went however when ever we make decisions we're not counting probable cases at all and all that details available on our website for any decisions about counties that have gone from yellow from red to yellow or yellow to green were only using the confirmed positive case count from the post Gazette what is the contact tracing team for the state found out about the people who are testing positive in the last few weeks beyond people living and working in nursing homes are there any commonalities in other words have they traveled away from home recently went to a large gathering or maybe went to a crowded store so most have not attended any particular large gatherings and done a significant amount of travel I don't have specific granular detail about specific cases but many of the cases are associated with outbreaks we talk about long term care living facilities others would include in the food those positive cases in the food industry food manufacturers processing exception or I mean in in stores but there is still community spread of covert nineteen in Pennsylvania and that is how many people get exposed.

"From the Bucks county courier times one is the secretary work drawing up the plan to do mass testing at all long term care facilities residents and staff on a weekly basis and what are some specific details such as well one hundred percent of the staff and residents protest weekly and will be re tests how will the department determined if long term care providers are doing the testing so we're gonna be rolling out that plan this week they're not necessarily every facility will be tested weekly it's going to be individualized to the facility depending upon how many cases of covert nineteen they have we have facilities that unfortunately has significant amount of covert nineteen cases they'll be tested differently than a facility that has a few which will be different in a facility that has no cases with covert nineteen so we're gonna work to individualize the testing strategy to the facility the Bucks county courier time also asks when is the secretary going to release the department's early plan to battle the covert nineteen virus in long term care facilities that was not implemented so a lot of that was actually discussed by the governor and director and director Pat field I mean so we had talked about previously having teens sometimes a called strike teams but teams to go out to nursing facilities to help with infection control and staffing so we have implemented that we have the National Guard teams that were discussed we actually now have some CD CM teams that are going out and so that will be announced and then working on further strike teams it was that strike team plan that was in our initial drafts and there was some delay in rolling that out but it has been ruled out from KDKA according to your office the collection of specific data from nursing homes in the state only started yesterday there were some confusion that those numbers were to be reported last week so did something change in that process I think there was some hope that we'll be able to report it last week but it turns out that the data started being collected yesterday and we're gonna start the reports tomorrow a follow up to that your office also said the deadline for facilities to cooperate was today what happens if they don't well if they don't they will be contacting them to ask them to cooperate this is the same data that they're actually being mandated to report to the federal government and the center for Medicare and Medicaid services we did wait on our data reporting plans so that our system our data system in terms of this reporting was the same as CMS's so that the reporting would be consistent also from the Bucks county courier times why does the department need additional time to release the facility level long term care infection and death data your department says it started collecting the seventeenth hasn't been collecting it all along and if so why the delay in releasing well we have been collecting information but in a completely different way again we have different data reporting systems sorry internal systems as we've been discussing today in terms of death reporting we wanted to make sure our make sure ours was consistent with CMS otherwise it would be apples and oranges and so we waited for the CMS guidance that came about ten days ago and then we worked on it last week and now it's going to be starting to reported tomorrow from fox fifty six are you seeing improvements in nursing homes since the new testing strategy was released I think we're seeing progress in long term care living facilities with all of the different measures that we have in place the infectious disease consoles by our team and Acree steam all the work for the patient safety authority the work of the National Guard many different programs that we have to help these facilities but I don't want to underestimate the challenges you you do have seniors many if not most with with chronic medical conditions in a congregate setting and so our state has has New York and New Jersey and Massachusetts and Illinois and other states had significant challenge with with these facilities and to repeat myself from before we're gonna do everything we possibly can to protect the residents and the staff of these long term care living facilities from W. T. A. this morning the state's website began reporting thirty eight deaths in Westmoreland County well the corners reporting thirty two can you offer any information about what led to this discrepancy I don't know that the insurance of the specific county but our team can investigate that and getting and get back to you bite there will be some differences from the our previous reporting because of what we discussed and discussed and talked about WTAE also what is the suicide rate since the shut down and what has the suicide rate been since the state home orders first began I don't have that specific information suicide rates are challenging to get we give out information from our county coroner's and as we discussed we have absolutely wonderful corners working with the coroner's association but there are sixty seven of them and so reporting from the corners can be it can can be delayed someone as they do their investigations so I don't have specific numbers but we are concerned in terms of people who are depressed and anxious and feeling isolated and might be at risk for suicide we're also extremely concerned in terms of substance abuse particularly opioid abuse and those are all things that will be working on in collaboration with our our sister departments of the department of Human Services and the department of drug and alcohol programs also from WTAE what has the overdose rate been since the state home orders began taking effect so I guess I don't have that number that those numbers takes a while for overdose rates to come in as I was previously describing we have worked on that for a number of years now with our excellent corners in terms of overdose reporting but we are concerned very concerned in terms of opioid abuse and opioid deaths due to overdoses from the Scranton times Tribune during the last month or so a trend has emerged between Lackawanna and Luzerne counties initially the amount of new cases being reported in Lucerne county was substantial since the new cases in Lucerne county has sharply declined and the number of cases in Lackawanna county appear static is that this also a trend observed by the department of health and other insights to explain why new cases have been dropping in those earn whatever means steady in Lackawanna I don't have specific granular detail but our team can do a deep dive into arms of the data from those counties and then get back to the reporter also from the sprint times the death toll Lackawanna drop substantially today with smaller decreases in Lucerne and pike counties any idea what happened and did it have anything to do with the switch in a report S. S. yes it would be due to the switch and the reporting system again it's it's most likely due to individuals who passed away in the in those counties maybe at a hospital or long term care living facility but actually their county of residence was a different county on unlike the corners who who had reported in their county of death we have to report it in their county of residence and so that's most likely the cause but we can check on that from the caucus the data you gathered for speaker Turzai indicates an age breakdown showing almost eighty eight percent of deaths for people sixty five or older are you surprised by the magnitude and what does the data odd about comorbidity tell you I'm not particularly surprised I think that was clearly their data from Pennsylvania and the data from other other states now in other countries so that seniors are most at risk of having severe complications to covert nineteen and tragically passing away the seniors that would be most at risk are those with other types of medical comorbidities or other medical conditions that can include heart disease such as for example congestive heart failure a lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that would include chronic bronchitis and emphysema kidney disease diabetes uncontrolled hypertension so we know that those the individuals are most at risk from covert nineteen but there are others at risk they they they don't have a much less death rate but they do have significant rates of illness and that includes young adults and middle aged adults and of course now we know that children are at risk of the the new multi system inflammatory condition from the daily press if and when you are allowed to resume participation in organized sports and other activities is there evidence to suggest the virus could spread among them a symptomatically and potentially affect their parents grandparents and other caregivers our youth being found less likely to contract or are used being found less likely to contract the virus altogether well we're still learning a lot of information about covert nineteen in general use high in young people are less likely to have severe symptoms and so and to be either a symptomatic or have very mild symptoms of course they could then carry that to their parents so that's one of the concerns in terms of this type of of community spread now the multi system inflammatory diseases actually post infectious it can be so often several weeks after the covert nineteen infection and seems to be an inflammatory response to the virus that the body is mounting that's a separate issue from W. L. V. R. can you give an update on antibody testing in the state is it widely available and can Pennsylvania easily access it without with low cost so we are working on getting that laboratory testing available at our laboratory we probably should have that by the end of the month and there are some hospitals they're doing antibody testing and I know that question lab core arguing antibody testing so someone could obtain that test by talking to their doctor and having the blood drawn this is a blood test to look for antibodies what we don't know yet is how a long lived those antibodies are how long they last and how much immunity they conveyed to the person how protective they are so we're gonna be looking for that type of information as we get into the summer from the post Gazette why is the guards leaving Brighton tomorrow and what role did they achieve well that they achieve a significant amount of progress at that facility in and out help in terms of staffing in infection control in many aspects of facility their mission is now being completed and there's actually other staffing coming to Brighton is some overlap in the National Guard would leave for their next mission from the Tribune review can you explain what the near death data dashboards showing and how it is different than what we were getting before specifically what is the percentage column showing well I'm gonna have to look at the percentage column but what this data is from a different system this is from our electronic death reporting system and so it's a pain in a different in in a different way one of the things that we're gonna have to deal with as I was describing is in terms of the differences between where a person passed away and what county they might be from and how that gets reported from spotlight PA the state is reporting eighty seven new deaths today but a close look at the data reveals the death counts for handful counties have in fact dropped overnight why doesn't the health department's messaging today in emails and on the website reflect the full scope of what's happening well I believe we are reflecting the the full scope especially as reporting in several different ways from fox forty three any update on the recovery tracking and when will the public be able to see any of that data we'll have that available this week and also from fox forty three instead of bringing a recovery coronavirus patients to nursing homes is the state exploring other options to care for these elderly individuals and keep residents at long term care facility safe well we want to do everything we can to keep to keep patients safe and will explore every possibility of of how to do that nothing and nothing has been easy especially with the challenges faced in terms of these long term care living facilities but we're gonna support every opportunity we can to keep them safe from W. K. okay we noticed some changes in death counts in our area Montour county no longer has a death in Snyder has one instead of two for thermal and now has to any insight into these changes I think that these would be due to what we had exactly talked about where a person passed away might not be their county of residence and so with this transition today there has been some changes although from now on it'll be consistent because this is how we're going to be reporting to us from W. K. okay from a local VFW will clubs American Legion VFW fire companies be allowed to open many say they could easily do the social distancing they could wear masks gloves sanitize frequently etcetera it's not just the socialization they support many community endeavors so it certainly not in the red zone we'll have to look at the yellow zone guidance in terms of those type of facilities and in the Yellowstone and we're developing our green zone guidance this week.

"The Carlisle Sentinel is the department of health sending out employees to investigate complaints coded ninety related or not at long term care facilities or are those on hold I'm so for the most part inspections of long term or long term care living facilities are on hold but we are investigating complaints virtually and would send in personnel absolutely necessary and then as a follow up what options are there for a long term care facility workers who need immediate action on dangerous situations at their work places that aren't being handled by ownership of the facility well I I think that the first thing to do would be to try to reach out the facility the facility and to try to correct the situation but if that's not possible we do have an anonymous complaint line for our nursing homes ends and workers or anyone could call that anonymous hotline again on nursing homes from the Scranton times Tribune one director of a nursing home hit hard by the disease told us that they're not completely following the guidance you issued on March eighteenth in terms of communal gatherings said the reasons include that there are people who need assistance dining in a communal rooms and some dementia patients are placed in a common room for part of the day the director stressed that all the residents are kept six feet apart and that he had the approval of the department of health are these acceptable X. exceptions to that guideline that the department issued for the long term care facilities well so the the guidance that we issued is very important and and for the most part we expect facilities to to comply with that guidance as well as the guidance of the center for Medicare and Medicaid services in Washington I'm not familiar with this specific case and whether they received any special instructions for the department of health so we'll have to check on that but certainly over all we would expect facilities to comply with the guidance whether you need a car now or plan to buy some day soon cars dot com has nearly two million cars ready for home delivery set up virtual appointments with local dealers to tour your favorites save.

"Yuck. A reporter with the Scranton times Tribune in Pennsylvania. He says the state went for Trump in two thousand sixteen for one big reason. No question economic they felt like he spoke to their economic needs. If they were as much as the Obama recovery hood, improve the nation and the region, I think that they had not quite felt that and felt a Trump spoke to that very dramatically. The rallies were sight to behold, he spoke your four times twice in Luzern county twice a Lackawanna county, and they were all packed and raucous just like Obama in twenty eight and you did not see that when Clinton inviting came in twenty sixteen they played the game of compressing the crowd to make it look larger than it was. So I remember one particular Friday night where Clinton spoke at a local high school, and I'm not sure why they picked the Friday night to speak and done more Pennsylvania, which was nearby. But you know, they really pushed the. Back fencing toward the stage. There were a couple of hundred people there, but you didn't have the same kind of atmosphere. The Trump rallies they were I had never seen anything like that for Republican. So let's talk about how Joe Biden will be received back in Scranton. He's obviously going to make his growing up there centerpiece of his campaign connection to the working class in the middle class. Are people excited in threatened to embrace him always done very well here? I mean, I think the one big part of the reason that Obama did. So well that wanna county in two thousand eight and two thousand twelve was Biden things we're trending well for the Democrats during those years between awake and sixteen. They had won a lot of state wide races. Lackawanna county was always the second highest percentage in the state for statewide democratic candidates. So that's that was part of it. But the hometown thing really kind of mattered in the whole thing becomes what can you do beyond? How broad is that working class appeal a lot of Democrats are counting on and is that appeal enough? Do you think in a place like Scranton to get him back to the kind of margins we've seen for other Democrats in and around the region? More importantly is going to be what he doesn't Luzern place. Like lizard county will expand. Where it was clear that the Democrats deserted the party in droves. You know, he needs to turn that around. Lackawanna county will be there places like lizard county, word immigration, and the loss of the manufacturing base in Lhasa jobs in decline in the economy had really changed to the terrain their thoughts the place he needs to concentrate places like that because that's wing alone in the vote between Obama and two thousand twelve and Trump in two thousand sixteen accounts for the entire margin in Pennsylvania. I completely concur with you or analysis here that the question of who's turning out. And what part of the state are turning out becomes really important. I think that the Trump campaign believes they can hit those same sorts of numbers in the small towns scattered throughout the state as well as hitting that same kind of support in and around Wilkes Barre and Scranton, do you sense that I don't know some of that enthusiasm that you saw back in two thousand sixteen. Maybe it's faded a little bit is really hard to tell this foreign for still pretty far out. But you know, I have a car mechanic who's I think he's a democrat. I'm not sure if he got to talking about Trump one day, and he said that he's a big Trump supporter, and he said, what's he done wrong? You know, now, you can argue that question, and I'm sure Democrats say lots of things in response to that question. But but in his mind, he doesn't see a compelling reason to. To vote against Trump. So what is that reason why the economy roaring the way it is to vote against Donald Trump and the democratic candidate who could lay out that argument? The best has the best chance of winning that race. If anything the case for Trump is stronger at the moment, and I know a lot of Democrats may not want to hear that. But what is the compelling reason for Donald Trump to lose.

"Joe Biden's first campaign related event will be held this Monday in Pittsburgh, the kind of place both were there's still a lot of strength in terms of the union movement. But also a lot of voters in and outside of Pittsburgh that were Obama Trump voters that Biden thinks he can help bring back, and so that's I think part of the message they want to get out. Very early is is reminding folks of the kind of unique appeal that he has that they feel he has to those types of voters, but there's another city in Pennsylvania that's associated more closely with Joe, Biden, Scranton, Pennsylvania. It's his birthplace. Also, the home of the office. Stuffing gentleman. And. We're not a former coal town. We're former cold country the way, we're former agricultural community.

Democrats clearly voted for Trump. She lost those voters, and it's hard to see understand. Why frankly, did you talk to voters it in two thousand sixteen. Could you pick that up that what they were seeing? And Trump was something that you had not seen before for another Republican candidate for another Republican candidate. Yes, I think it was the same passion was there for Obama. You know, what they really felt like they wanted somebody who was speaking for them. And Trump really tapped into that the NAFTA was. A big issue here. And then the immigration issue was much much more prominent Luzerne county than it wasn't Lackawanna county. Loser in county is just to the south where wilkes-barre is. But that's why Luzern actually I think immigration was a big larger issue in Luzern county. And that's why earn county went so heavily for Trump and Lackawanna county state narrowly for Clinton, I know that number was really remarkable. So the turnaround was dramatic very most Democrats nearly one Luzern wilkes-barre by fifty one fifty two percent Clinton only got thirty nine percent. So that's yeah. That's a pretty dramatic drop off. Do you think that the Democrats in town, the sort of officeholders or other people who are active in the party in two thousand sixteen did did they see what was happening or were? They pretty shocked on election night to see the kind of numbers that came out of Luzern and unlock wanna county. We'll tell you. They were surprised, but I think some of them knew that no some of them knew that promise. Democratic friends were there's had Trump's assigns in their front yards. And that that's just fact the I don't think they thought they were going to lose. I don't think anybody thought that like wanna county was going to be as close as it was. But it was and that the turnaround into Luzern, you know, surprised everybody, and it kind of shouldn't have you know, nobody wanted to believe it at the time. But it happened. I know that number it was really remarkable. So Obama run it. The turnaround was dramatic very most Democrats in the early one Luzern wilksbury by fifty one fifty two percent Clinton only got thirty nine percent. So that's that's a pretty dramatic drop off. So if I were to meet voters in Scranton who had voted for Obama in twenty away twenty twelve had voted for Al Gore. John Kerry, what would their reason before why they voted for Donald Trump this time around and not. Not a democrat economic. No question economic the felt like he spoke to their economic needs. If they were as much as the Obama recovery had improved nation and the region, I think that they had not quite felt out and felt that Trump spoke to that very dramatically. The rallies were sight to behold, he spoke your four times twice in Luzern county twice in Lackawanna county, and they were all packed and raucous just like Obama in twenty eight and you did not see that when Clinton and Biden came in twenty sixteen they played the game of compressing the crowd to make it look larger than it was this. I remember one particular Friday night where Clinton spoke at a local high school. And I'm not sure why they pick the Friday night to speak and done more Pennsylvania, which was nearby. But you know, they really pushed the back fencing toward the stage. There were a couple of hundred people there, but you didn't have the same kind of atmosphere. The Trump rallies they were I had never seen. Anything like that for a Republican? So let's talk about how Joe Biden will be received back in Scranton. He's obviously going to make his growing up there centerpiece of his campaign connection to the working class and the middle class are people excited in Scranton to embrace him. Always done very well here. I mean, I think the one big part of the reason that Obama did. So well, unlike wanna county in two thousand eight and two thousand twelve was Biden things were trending well for the Democrats during those years between await and sixteen they had won a lot of statewide races. Lackawanna county was always the second highest percentage in the state for statewide democratic candidates. So that's that was part of it. But the hometown thing really kind of mattered in a whole thing becomes you know, what can you do beyond that? How broad is that working class appeal a lot of Democrats are counting on and is that appeal enough? Do you think in a place like Scranton to get him back to the kind of margins we've seen for other Democrats in and around the region? More poorly is going to be what he doesn't lizard of place. Like Luzern county wilkes-barre whereas clear that the Democrats deserted the party in droves. You know, he needs to turn that around. Lackawanna county will be there places like lizard county where immigration and the loss of the manufacturing base in Lhasa jobs in decline in the economy had really changed to the terrain there. That's the place he needs to concentrate places like that because that's wing alone in the vote between Obama and two thousand twelve and Trump in two thousand sixteen accounts for the entire margin in Pennsylvania. I completely concur with you or analysis here that the question of who's turning out, and what part of the state are turning out become. Is really important. I think that the Trump campaign believes they can hit those same sorts of numbers in the small towns scattered throughout the state as well as hitting that same kind of support in and around Wilkes Barre and Scranton, do you sense that I don't know some of that enthusiasm that you saw back in two thousand sixteen. Maybe it's faded a little bit. It's really hard to tell this farm. We're still pretty far out. But you know, I have a car mechanic who's I think he's a democrat. I'm not sure, but he got the talking about Trump one day. And he said that he's a big Trump supporter, and he said, what's he done wrong? You know, now, you can argue that question, and I'm sure Democrats will say lots of things in response to that question. But but in his mind, he doesn't see a compelling reason to vote against Trump. So what is that reason why with the economy roaring the way it is do you vote against? Trump and the democratic candidate who can lay out that argument. The best has the best chance of winning that race. If anything the case for Trump is stronger at the moment, and I know a lot of Democrats may not want to hear that. But what is the compelling reason for Donald Trump to lose next year for his scratching yoke is a staff writer for the Scranton times. I

"In her case it pass over you know. The third day of Passover or second full day. I guess Passover started on Friday night. But she texted me happy Easter. Thank you very much. How are you doing? And she said she's feeling much much better. And just probably didn't take enough time off when she had that last surgery little over a week ago. So I didn't get into are you gonna be packed tomorrow. Because that is the plan and she didn't tell me otherwise. And it just seemed. It seemed to self-centered of me to ask are you going to be here at work tomorrow? No. Just having a nice pleasant chitchat. That's all there was to it. So as far as I'm concerned, she will be sounded good was having a good time. It is some fifty one right now Pennsylvania dad's frustration has boiled over and put his sons math teacher in the hot seat on Tuesday. Chris pilot posted a Facebook photo of his sons second grade math assignment with comment from the teacher, quote, absolutely pathetic. He answered thirteen questions in three minutes. Exclamation point. Sad end quote. Pilot Mr. pilot, the father was very upset. He said on Facebook, my son Camden teacher has been so rude to him and myself all year, he comes home with this. And I'm beyond frustration that someone would write this on a child's work with a such great motivation is post went viral trigger an online petition to have the teacher fired. Teachers name is Alissa Owen from valley view elementary school in Archibald, Pennsylvania. More than sixteen thousand people signed this online petition. Writers of the petition said things like there's no reason to humiliate a child or anyone else. Absolutely true. There's no reason to humiliate a child or anyone else imploding the teacher. You don't need to put this stuff on Facebook. You need to pick up the phone and call the teacher or these days. Most cases, you can send a little polite Email asking for a conversation about the situation. If you can't deal with that, then go to the principal at the school. You don't need to put this stuff on social media. First of all, I'm sure that. I'm sure that Mr. pilots son was more motor mortified by the Facebook posting than by the noting from the teacher. Sit down. Nice conversation. Say look, I know he has trouble. He's trying harder. And I'll spend more time working with him. And, but please, you know, have a little. Compassion little understanding, please don't be. So so angry value school district is investigating. And here's the thing. I love about this story school superintendent rose Midi told Scranton times Tribune, this is no slam dunk. According to Manetti, quote, it's a personnel issue. And the results of that are not going to be dictated by social media. I don't know if she said it with that tone. But I couldn't help it. She said it's going to be dictated by the facts in evidence. Here's a counter petition to save Hex job saying that she should be reprimanded, not fired. But as of last counter only seven hundred forty signatures on that. And apparently this teacher has a little bit of a history of getting really angry instead of being the adult in the classroom. I guess. The she the teacher sent parents letter this school year saying homework has to be completed together with an adult not alone capital. Not exclamation point. Why do you why do you have to get so confrontational from the outset? The teacher needs. Teacher needs a little insight. A little attitude adjustment. Sure. Make it. Make it an official reprimand. But you don't and you don't do it. Because people signed a petition. Wow. I really I really really appreciate that school superintendent. It's a personnel issue. And the results are not going to be dictated by social media. Seven fifty five right now KLIF traffic.
