Here are the latest random this and thats from my reporter’s notebook:


Beaver Attorney Hopes To Fill Christiana’s Seat

Beaver attorney and father-of-five Joshua Kail hopes to fill State Representative Jim Christiana’s seat for the 15th legislative district. Christiana has pledged he will not be running for reelection when his term comes to a close at the end of 2018.

Kail, a registered Republican, has filed paperwork to form his campaign committee ahead of next year’s election.

Along with working as General Counsel for Silver Creek Services (an oil & gas company), Kail also maintains a private law practice in Beaver where he shares office space with former Beaver County Solicitor Joseph Askar, and serves as Assistant Solicitor of Economy Borough and Beaver County CYS. Kail previously served as law clerk for County Common Pleas Judge Deborah Kunselman.


Five Or Six? Clearing Confusion In The Judicial Race

The Beaver County Times has begun its coverage of the 2017 campaign season with something of a flub. The Times ran a story on March 13th with the headline “Five individuals announce intent to run for Beaver County judge.” Of course, readers of the Beaver Countian (which includes staff of the Times) have read about the SIX attorneys who are judicial candidates this year.

It seems the Times missed attorney Myron Sainovich in their list.

Reporting by the paper of just FIVE candidates spread like wildfire through the courthouse and political circles, with people assuming the Times’ coverage meant that Sainovich had dropped out of the race. Sainovich was also the only judicial candidate who did not show up to speak at a Republican Committee meeting held this week, which added to the rumors he was out.

From what I’ve been able to gather, the Times’ error appears to be due to them obtaining an unofficial preliminary list of candidates from the Beaver County Bureau of Elections. Sainovich’s name was not included on that version of the list apparently due to issues which arose when he originally filed his nominating petitions (while candidates for municipal offices file their petitions with the county Bureau of Elections, judicial candidates file in Harrisburg).

The Beaver Countian obtained the same preliminary list of candidates from the county as the Times did, but knowing Sainovich was entering the race, took the time to double check it with state filings.

It seems Sainovich’s original petitions to appear on the ballot were rejected because he had failed to follow state guidelines that mandate the petitions be double-sided as part of petition circulator requirements. Sainovich was given an opportunity to rectify things and state records show his candidacy was approved on March 7th.

After confirming his candidacy the Beaver Countian again contacted the County Bureau of Elections, which acknowledged the unofficial list had not yet been updated with the last minute addition. They asked us to correct their list before publication, which is the version that appeared on our site on March 8th.

I confirmed again on Thursday with a call to the Pennsylvania Department of State that the Beaver Countian’s reporting about Sainovich being an approved candidate remains accurate.

“[Myron Sainovich] is showing as approved and I do not see anything to indicate that he has withdrawn,” said a spokesperson for the agency. A lottery held on Friday by the state determined Sainovich will have position 1 on the Democratic primary ballot and position 6 on the Republican ballot.

You can see Myron Sainovich’s state filings for yourself here (for the Democratic petition) and here (for the Republican petition). You can see notice of his mandamus case (involving the original problems with his petitions) listed here.

Sainovich was one of SIX judicial candidates who appeared before the Democratic Committee’s Executive Board this morning.


WBVP Radio Hosts Continue Open Love Affair For The Democratic Party Establishment

A host and producer for WBVP radio continued to demonstrate the station’s unabashed love affair for the old guard of the Democratic party establishment this week.

Al Goehring posted a comment to the Beaver Countian from his Facebook account in reaction to news that this publication had succeeded in its legal efforts to protect anonymous commenters from being unmasked by Democratic Treasurer Connie Javens (Goehring is one of several people who have worked for both the station and the Treasurer’s Office).

“Now she can go after you!! You should be in jail for lying in the David trial!!,” wrote Goehring, referencing former Sheriff George David’s 2014 acquittal at trial on charges he pulled out his service revolver and made threats.

Shill is as shill does.

The Beaver Countian published a report back in April 2016 that revealed Mike Romigh, the station’s programming director at the time, attended a meeting with the Executive Board of the Democratic Committee where he pledged to help the party regain majority control of the courthouse.

Romigh recently left his two-and-a-half-year stint at the station to become fundraising manager for the Beaver County Humane Society.


Fox News Anchor Makes Low-Key Visit To Beaver County?

Fox News’ Chief Anchor Shepard Smith was supposedly spotted in a Beaver County bar last Saturday night. Smith is said to have been watching a basketball game at the Paradise Pub in Center Township.

People tell me the newsman brought an “entourage” with him into the establishment, and was introducing himself as “Shep” to other patrons who began gawking at him as word got around. I’m also told he makes frequent trips to the Center / Monaca area.

I reached out to a spokesperson for Fox News to see if they could confirm Shep was around and to find out what he may have been up to, but have not heard back yet. I’ll let you know if I do in a future notebook.

    • Yes, you are correct. He’s been coming to Beaver County for a few years now when he and his boyfriend come back. I’ve seen Sheppard on a few occasions and had conversations with him. He’s a really nice guy. I just thought this was public knowledge.

       
      • I just found it on the internet and probably wouldn’t know Sheppard if I saw him, but that’s nice he comes to visit his “in-laws.”

         
  1. Cost of government is out of control, legislature should be reduced by half with max 2 term limits. Politicians have set themselves up with perks and benefits unseen by the common working person.

     
  2. Mungo made several attempts at commenting on the article regarding Connie the Con’s Son only to have them disappear into the river or something……only saw ” awaiting moderation ” then POOF! Gone just like Mungo’s 401k! What gives JP?

     
    • Me, too. All I said was that there isn’t “the mob” in Beaver County, anymore. Made me chuckle that it disappeared- a couple times.

       
    • Every comment went into a buffer for moderation, I think, Mungo. Could be that JP was protecting him from abuse, since he pretty much bared his soul for the article. One of my comments didn’t make it either.

       
      • I also have lost a few comments in the last story. I would like to see an investigation into vendor usage. I believe the county has used the same certain vendors for insurance, office equipment, fire extinguisher services, county vehicle repairs, so on and so forth. Who are the vendors, how long have they been doing business with the county and who are they related to? In my opinion the county does business with certain vendors thus locking out any others from participating and competing.

         
      • I have lost comments too. Come on JP. You are the one writing about transparency. Picking and choosing comments to publish really makes readers question your credibility.

         
  3. I don’t have to use a fake name. I have lived in Beaver County all my life and I’m proud of it. First lets address the problem with John Paul. I hate bloggers!!! They have cheapen the profession I have worked in for 35-years. The Beaver Countian has used just enough truth to make it believable. Most of the time it is filled with half truths and unknown sources. The irony is he spent a few weeks at WBVP/WMBA but, straight news wasn’t his bag. I’ve covered more legitimate stories in my career than years John Paul has been alive. I retired from Beaver County five years ago. Yes, I spent 16-years in the Treasurer Office. I still remember some of the terminology and the rules. Connie and her deputies ran a tight ship. Everything had to balance every day and I did. This nonsense that the office is not run well is one JP’s half-truth. I also exited this non journalist out of our office a couple times. Let’s turn to basketball. I have worked for CCBC, Hopewell High School, and currently Lincoln Park. I was hired by Mark Javens, Connie’s son. I was not paid by Connie Javens!!!! I drew a fee from all the institutions and was not pressured to make the tapes for Connie’s grandson who graduated before I left Hopewell. Mark Javens hasn’t coached since 2014. I am about to conclude my fourth year. Maybe the school likes my work. Here is something strange. I was taken off AM Beaver County in August and Mike Romigh resigned last Month. On the regular “Asked the Commissioner” there was a stranger in the house. County Commission Chairman Sandie Egley. That is John Pauls close friend. Did JP influence my demotion and assisted the resignation of Mike? Only the truth sayer knows!!! The Javens family and the interview. It seems the swear words had to be used for effect. The family is very loyal. Danny has had problems. I’ve seen him a couple time s since my retirement. We didn’t talk about his problems. Over the last 20-years, Connie’s kid defended their mom. Can you say fake news!!! The big break for JP was the case against George David. The state based their evidence on his testimony. The Jury came back in 40-minutes NOT GUILTY!!!! Why wasn’t he charged with perjury? The jury said all the things he had charged didn’t happen!!! The reason he is after Javens she won. He can’t stand people didn’t believe hius lies and reelected her. Losier, Guy, and Javens wouldn’t play the game with him. The rest is history. Sandie is one of his favorites. Just sayin. He is also a pest…My wife and I were applying for our passports. JP was in and out of the office doing a story I guess. My wife asked me who that was. I told her it was the trash man. The conversation was interesting on our way to dinner. I guess I live in the wrong world. Hard work, loyalties, and friendships mean nothing. John Paul you are a fraud and part of the growing Fox News fake news gang. Someday the truth will find you out and your career will be over. I think the radio station might let us debate real journalism and your garbage!!! That is if Sandie allows you. For you cowards who are going to trash me use your real names. I won’t hurt you I might even feel sorry for you.

     
    • You sir, are at best delusional. At worst, a Connie Kool-Aid drinker.

      Did Georgie did pull his gun on JP? Don’t you remember the “paid” judge playing “BINGO” with the jury?! You figure it out. And of course, this is just “my opinion”.

      Fox News “fake”? Really?! I guess that is why “Airhead America” is still on the radio. CNN-Rachel “Madcow” Maddow ring any bells for fake news? No? Didn’t think so you moron.

       
    • WBVP would be so much more interesting if it were objective. It just would. The days of Democrats running the county are over. As a life-long Democrat, I think it’s long overdue. Thank goodness for JP revealing the seedy corruption and nepotism in our local governments. Let’s clean it up and create a better Democratic (and Republican) party. You can either help, Mr. Goehring, or live in the past.

       
    • WOW! For somebody that calls their self a journalist, that was incredibly painful to read. Ever heard of breaking your ramblings into paragraphs to help your reader? Based on this post alone, you have no credibility as a journalist. A real journalist would never publish something as hideous as this.

       
    • You know that JP has actually effected change in this county and the courthouse right? The Goerhings and Romighs of this of this county have been sent to the kiddie table for a while. I remember Mike when he was at 570 AM in Ohio. It was brutal to listen to him there and worse on WBVP. And when you refer to JP as a blogger it shows how out of date you are. Like the tradesman father bitching about his nerd son and telling him how computers will never go anywhere. Time for you to either catch up or go away buddy. This world is passing you by in a hurry.

       
      • COMAN YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE WHO’S AFFRAID TO USE YOUR REAL NAME. WHY DID YOU LISTEN TO HIM? HE IS A BLOGGER LOOK IT UP IF YOU CAN READ. WKBN HAS LESS REAL BROADCASTING. YOU SOUND LIKR A TRUMP SUPPORTER AND YOU REALLY THINK HE WILL MAKE AMERICA BETTER. YOU ARE LIVING IN A FAIRYTALE WORLD. YOU NOTICE I’M USING REAL NAME ASSHOLE!!!!!

         
  4. Al Goehring, you are a sad representative of the media. Your spelling and grammar are almost totally lacking from your post. As far as J. P. being a perjurer, you sir have never been on the “wrong” side of Georgie. I believe J.P. because Georgie would wave his gun around many times. He would also threaten harm to those whose went against him. I know, I grew up in Aliquippa and remember him as an out of control cop. You need to check out how real reporting is done. J. P. Is spot on.

     
    • DID YOU GET OUT YOUR 4TH GRADE AND YOUR SEVEN YEAR OLD DICTIONARY TO CHECK MY SPELLING.
      I WRITE RADIO SCRIPT. IT IS TOO COMPLICATED FOR YOUR FEBBLE MIN D APPREHEND. I USED SPELL CHECK. BELIEVE WHAT YOUR LITTLE MINE BELEIEVES THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE PUBLIC BELIEVED WHAT THE JURY SAID AFTER 40 MINUTES OF DELIBERATION, JP LIED. ALSO,25-THOUSAND FOLLOWERS AND ONLY 200 COMMENTERS. SOMETHING DOESN’T ADD UP…DID HE LIE ABOUT THAT TOO

       
      • Al, I worked for the county for thirty years. I’m so proud of you for writing radio script, I guess it takes a special kind of stupid to do that. Again your spelling is atrocious, it is mind not mine. For goodness sake, your grammar is like a five year old from the ghetto. You bought the county line hook, line and sinker. Go strain your mouth on your political buddies.

         
  5. Al Goehring: Were you sober when you attempted to type that comment? I’m not going to waste my time correcting the misstatements. But it does anger me when a small town stuck-in-high school blowhard from an inconsequential radio station thinks that illiterate moronic drivel is somehow superior to what he refers to as a blogger and a blog. Read the court findings article, and wake up to the new media. There is no way in hell that you could do what John Paul has done to help keep things clean around here in government. You are like one of those little yip-yip dogs that nip at people’s heels. The best way to deal with those rabid megalomaniacal mutts is to punt them across the room.

    Punt…

     
    • I HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE AND OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT IS TRUE. WHEN DOES LYING MAKE THING CLEAN. I’ve DONE GOOD THINGS OVER THE LAST 35 YEARS. I WAS THE LEAD RADIO REPORTER FOR THE CRASH OF FLIGHT-427, THREE PRESIDENTAL VISITS, TWO STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONSHIPS, A SCORE OF WPIAL-PIAA CHAMPIONS IN FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL. I WAS ONE OF THE VOICES FOR NORTH HILLS FOOTBALL ON REDZONE MEDIA PLUS MORE TELEVISION WORK FOR WPXI-TV AND ON AND ON. SINCE A REPUBLICAN OWNS BOTH STATIONS IN BEAVER COUNTY( KINDA OF GUY) I WAS REMOVED AND MIKE ROMIGH RESIGNED AND REPLACED THEM WITH PEOPLE THAT WON’T ROCK THE BOAT. BY THE WAY MIKE WAS THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR. IT’S A RADIO STATION NOT A COMPUTER BUT I DON’T THINK YOU OR JP KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE. SINCE YOU PROBABLY DON’T HAVE A RESUME AND USE AN ALIAS HIT THE ROAD MORON.

       
      • Wow what an impressive resume. … Maybe to your wife. Until today, I have never heard of you. Heaven forbid someone should rock the boat at W M B A, you wouldn’t want to piss off one of the eleven listeners. Mike AH, AH, Ro AH,AH MIGH, AH. All the shit you listed above is in the past. There is not one person that will recount…” I know that name AL Goehring, let me see, oh now I remember he’s the guy that covered the crash of flight-427.” Give me a FA-KIN Break hundreds of real reporters covered that story. What’s next, some home video sparring with the heavy bag in you basement ala Rob Pratte. jackass.

         
      • Tell me more about how you were the man back in your day. A true uncle Rico. Or Al Bundy if you prefer.

      • “College degree” — a non-academic photojournalism degree from Point Park. And, a personal alumni designation as a photographer and writer. “Writer?”

         
  6. For the last time, Al Goehring, I’ll say it. In my opinion, John Paul was defeated in the Sheriff trial by defense witness lying, collusion, perjury, a weak AG prosecution and a savvy defense lawyer who invented the “unloaded gun” travesty. And, a jury who “believed” it. Had the judge been a little smarter and alert, it would not have been successful.

    To say, “Why wasn’t he charged with perjury? The jury said all the things he had charged didn’t happen!!!” is a boldfaced LIE. No such thing happened. Not only do you do a piss poor job as an illiterate radio show host, you can’t even read the vetted reported news and make sense of it.

    And, “fake news” is not just incorrect news. It is an intentionally persuasive invention of fictional events used as propaganda to sway the public.

    I’d keep trying, if I were you. This little diatribe of yours is getting pretty close to that.

     
    • Raven are you as stupid as you sound? Who was George’s attorney? Not guilty means the jury doesn’t believe the witness. 49-minutes tells me that believed John Paul was lying. On second thought you are as stupid as you sound. Your definition of Fake News is true and the Countian does it every day! Raven you must believe in the Easter Bunny

       
      • No, not guilty in this case just shows where intimidation and money can get a raving Looney tunes.

         
  7. Al, you are a perfect example of a political boot licker for the Old Guard of Beaver County. As stated above your WPVB is a Democratic shill program. It lacks any audiencep except for people who think like you and can’t get there head out of their asses and get into the 21st century. Roosevelt is not President anymore and free shit has ended to buy votes or jobs. Who the hell is Mike Romigh? Lived in this county for 20 years and never heard of him until he started pimping for dems after they got their asses handed to them in the last election cycle. Your journalistic abilities leave alot to be desired. The fact that you worked in the Queen’s den of losers, liars and inept political hacks speaks volumes about your work ethic and personal pride. Any decent human being with a conscience wouldn’t steal a paycheck from that office while fully engaging in a RICO operation, stealing elderly and taxpayers hard earned dollars. You will find a hot spot in hell with Connie, Stonewall Lozier (I see nothing), Squirmy and the Midget Badge Boy plunderer from Quiptown. You are a disgrace to investigative reporting and journalism and could easkily fill Tom (Connie’s Boy) Davidson’s place doing puff pieces kissing usual corrupt thieves asses. JP has done more for Beaver County in the short time of doing Countian than you will ever do. He has exposed the seedy underbelly of Beaver policics, pay to play and jobs for political hackers like you. As always, go read the EndTimes puff pieces about racial harmony and lovefest in the hoods. Or the 80% of the Sunday Times that is Scott Tady or Sports and useless drivel. It is the opiate of the delusional Old Guard, pining for the mills to reopen. Print your BS in the Times write ins. Stay away from this site where educational dialogue is encouraged and new thining is necessary. You are a DINOSAUR!

     
    • Mr 13……” lovefest in the hood” haha! So true! And the real “puff” piece in quip would be the 2 unfortunate White kids that were murdered by the black kid over $150 in marijuana! Imagine the way the old dinosaur would really describe Aliquippa if allowed to speak freely without PC filter. Judging by his own write up Mr Goehring has the ignorant part pretty well wrapped up!

       
    • I guess you have nothing better to do than run me down and believe in a liar like him. Eventually his words will catch up with him. and you’ll lose. I spent 16-years in the building. it is not as bad as you think. JP’s. accomplishment has been to elect two rookies as County Commisoners. Answer these question ns. Sandie and Danny hired a financial advisor at twice the going rate. Sandies’ assistant was dismissed for job shopping. Finally, the sudden departure of their hand pick Chief of Staff, dismissed without notice. The bottom line is a four mil tax increase and probably 3.5 in 2018. JP’s report on that. I’m waiting. I’m WAITING !!! As for Aliquippa, I graduated from Hopewell in 65. I know all about Aliquippa. You sound like an old white man who wishes for the old days when blacks new their place. I know Mayor Walker (JP doesn’t) very well and council is doing all they can to revive the city. You just sit on your ass and whine. I’d listen to your story and report on it. Oh you are coward with a big mouth and a coward that use an ALIAS!!!

       
      • “Oh you are coward with a big mouth and a coward that use an ALIAS!!!”

        Slow down there Al, hunt and peck … you wouldn’t want someone to think you are making fun of Native Americans.

         
      • Please, Walker is not doing anything for Aliquippa. You have 2 police officers who constantly steal. They pay people to go court while they are already being paid daylight wages, and yes the mayor knows about it and allows it to go on. Is this not Criminal Conspiracy ? A city under distressed community act, and you have multiple people with take home vehicles, what a waste of gas. Officers drunk on station shooting another with the TAZERS. People in Aliquippa wake up before it is really too late. Rumor even has it a letter was sent to Sam Gill saying they were sorry for double dipping, and they were told, its ok

         
  8. Many of my comments have been edited on the Connie story also but I understand that there may have been some detrimental activities included that could harm indidivuals. Please be patient. JP is not censoring anyone. I would certainly be the first to attack him if I believed that to be true.

     
    • Equalizer it is true. Connie made the big mistake of being re-elected. I was out of work when I went to work for her. I was trained, worked for 16-years, and retired with a decent pension. JP’s target was to rid the Courthouse crowd and build his business. I’ve been tempted to go back a few days a month. She is a good women. This no way to treat her. If there were as many problems as stated I would know.

       
      • @AL….WOW ARE YOU FOR REAL. THE CON IS A GOOD PERSON. YOU WORKED IN THAT OFFICE, HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT !! NOW WHO IS THE LIAR. EITHER THAT OR SHE HAS REALLY BRAINWASHED YOU. ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE USED AN ALIAS. NOW EVERYONE KNOWS HOW STUPID YOU ARE. SHAME ON YOU AL!!!! YOU SAY YOU HAVE BEEN RETIRED FOR FIVE YEARS, I THINK YOU CAN TAKE YOUR HEAD OUT OF HER ASS NOW.
        “THE CON” WASN’T THEN NOR IS SHE NOW A GOOD PERSON.
        AL GOEHRING IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE BRAINLESS PEOPLE THAT SHE HIRES SO SHE CAN CONTROL THEM. THANKS AL FOR PROVING MY POINT.

         
      • I don’t know you but I agree with a lot of what you wrote. Now it doesn’t mean anything to the negative people hiding behind aliases but sometimes it’s helpful to know that there are others who support those who disagree with the mob mentality. No one is perfect or has a perfect life so a person casting anonymous disparaging comments at someone calls their character into question. As one of my colleagues said to me once, “Everyone has to eat.”It was a reminder that we should not disparage a person’s work as we all have to eek out a living…imperfect humans in an imperfect world. Was / is there corruption in Beaver County? Sure, but there are also a lot of good people trying to work within a county government that needs to be automated and improved and where processes are established for the benefit of all, the county worker and the taxpayer. It takes time and money and qualified people to run for office in order to accomplish improvement. And if this anonymous hate continues to be tolerated by this publication, it will deter qualified people from running for office and you will have a mighty slow train on the tracks to improvement. Just my two cents….

         
  9. Raven, Mongo, John Q, ravenspawn, ET AL, please keep providing your insight. Every contributor is necessary for a balanced point of view. Friends and family comments will be judged in the spirit written and as such worhty of our sympathies.

     
    • Considering Mungo’s opinion of the Con he certainly could not see censoring as the culprit! Mungo just likes to think maybe at times he is speaking directly to the warped precooked banana bread dough that apparently makes up the Con’s psyche, even if it is only the id. Every once in a while Mungo actually takes the time to ponder the subject matter in all of it’s splendid detail to come up with a comment worthy of JP’s publication and to see it disappear …well that just makes Mungo sad. But that’s ok cuz it seems that Mr Dan has had enough of the Con too! Mungo eagerly awaits the next installment!

       
  10. Sandie, you must be doing a good job to piss off Al and his cronies since you don’t play “ball” well with them. Rock on, you are one big reason why things are finally changing for the good and someday we may get a competent courthouse team that puts the taxpaying public first. I always find that the truth really pisses old timers and political hacks off. They hate to acknowledge that they were led by their greedy, blind noses for over 30 years in this county. By their friends and family no less.

     
  11. The best part of these comments is this attitude that the Republicans that replaced the Democrats are a new, refreshing improvement. Really? Look around; you base this on what? S.O.S.

    What next, are you going to claim that your farts actually smell kind of good?
    LOL

     
    • Don’t care isf someone is an R or D, just job performance, trustwothiness and character. Connie is none of the above. Stealing from the taxpayers on an ongoing basis is corrpution and should warrant RICO status for the courthouse whores.

       
      • Hey , I’m not championing the Democrats by any stretch. Their failures are well documented. But….
        This new era of County, state and national politics? Meh. Higher school taxes. Check. Higher County taxes. Check again. Higher state taxes, don’t forget the gas tax hike! Another check. Higher national taxes. They will have winners (Corporations) and losers (average citizens paying the difference of the corporations) Checkmate.
        I see Jimmy Christiana in the role of Mike Veon, A NOTHING in Harrisburg orchestrating back here at home. I see the Republicans voted in this problem sheriff because he had an “R” next to his name. I see the GOP commissioners can’t control the courthouse any better so far than the Dem majority did in their day. Give them time? Rip van Marshall has been there 4 terms now. When is that flower going to bloom some weed seeds. Harrisburg can’t solve the unemployment snit for 4 months now for people that can’t claim their benefits. And look who controls the House and Senate. Trump seems like an absolute twittering buffoon. But I guess it ‘s the new vogue to vote straight “R” instead of straight “D” these days. Enjoy!

         
  12. Quote “Connie and her deputies ran a tight ship” I suppose that is the reason there has never been an audit done of the Treasurer’s Office over the past 20+ years. I worked in a financial environment and we had audits done every 6 months. Without audits it would have been very easy for one to be “creative” and have ghost employee’s on the payroll.

     
    • Does she audit her own department? Where’s Rossi? Where was Towcimak? Isn’t auditing part of the auditor’s job? I don’t blame Connie on this one, I think the auditor’s are at fault. What do the do over there all day? Put the records near the tray of doughnuts so somebody gets curious enough to look at them.

       
  13. @Al , your doing jobs Nobody wants, but people like you want to do….. Anyone that played sports doesn’t want to do that drivel.

    She hated you save yourself from the sword.

    ” I’m al on the corner where president so and so came today” send shout out to dirty Bob get me free chicken wing lunch cash my 5 buck check job done. Lol

    This guy is a functional special needs adult that somehow may have had procreation in children.

    I spy the locker room for butt cheeks and penis….

    Fucking window licker

     
  14. Ok. This Al guy is totally off the fucking tracks! Someone in his family needs to 302 his ass before he hurts himself.

    Al-at the very least you NEED some kind of therapy. Like I said before, you are delusional. These comments from you now prove it beyond a shadow of any doubt.

    And Al-your spell checker is not working.

    Al-Get the help you so desperately need.

     
  15. Mungo hates to say it , but if Mr Al Goehring starts mumbling legal precedent quoted from a high school civics book, or tells us he is a 6ft 5in retired Marine who will kick all of our asses after he is done suing us for defamation then we may all be suffering some hideous collective flashback! Not one to poke fun at Mr McKee posthumously, but Mungo would be remiss if he didn’t at least point out the similarities!

     
  16. In my humble opinion, Right on, Mungo. And in my opinion, I assume this paunchy little garden gnome is about to say that he is a member of Mensa, will spot us 50 I.Q. points against a chimpanzee, and that aliens are proving we have a flat earth. It’s all too familiar, isn’t it? He hasn’t said, “Bring it!” yet, or claimed that he alone fought for our freedoms, but that’s on the horizon. I’m going to be more careful this time around, though. Clearly, he takes attention as bait, has to have the last word, and as soon as someone says something to threaten his ego, he’ll want to take up McKee s flag and sue everyone within commenting distance. He’s certainly no Marine, though, and he isn’t 6′ 5″, so there is some solace in that.

     
  17. As with the obligation of the public to debunk Trump’s lies, diversions and bizarre take on reality, I do think that commenters here have something of an obligation to take on someone who is apparently coming out of left field. The value is that he is not alone in his positions, and those people impact the elections around here. So, a little tit for tat helps clear the air of misinformation.

     
  18. I do not know you Al Goering, never heard of you and frankly after all that ranting and raving I personally do not care to know you. Are you on some kind of guilt trip or something WTF dude take a chill pill. No body cares!!!!

    “On second thought you are as stupid as you sound.” No sound here, just words. And, thanks for the compliment.

    “…definition of Fake News is true and the Countian does it every day!” Please give ONE example.

    Oh shit, you mean he’s not real?!

     
  20. It appears, Al, that the bullshit harangues that get you through a day on talk radio or high school sports shows has hit a wall here, where people can respond to what you say, mostly intelligently, and not just get a boost for their team or local news. Like it or not, commenters here are pretty good at sniffing out bullshit and revealing it. Back off a little, and realize that some serious concerns exist about some local politicians, and your defenses might be loyal, but hollow.

     
  21. Still trying to figure out what Christiana has done for Beaver County. Other than set himself up for a run at another political seat somewhere.

     
      • This is not the full time paper chase of living at Harvard and having nightly group studies in the dorms. You would likely find him more often in online courses at home or at Starbucks.

         
  22. In my opinion: It appears that his destiny is to be a local lawyer, perhaps a solicitor for the Treasurers or Sheriff’s office (Surprise!) and a dress-up shadow beard Gentlemans Quarterly socialite for the weekly mutual ball scratching sessions with other barristers and courthouse buddies at Thursday’s. Ironically, he belongs in a small town, not the Big City, and he can glow in the limelight as a local kid who made good. He has had a lackluster run in Harrisburg, but he could shine in local politics, and even make the pages of the Beaver Countian as a Republican string puller.

     
  23. @Raven Who knows? JChristiana may one day seek the highly coveted job as talk show host on WMBA. There he can interview “his man,” Tony Guy, over, and over and ……also, “On todays program individual caucus members whose lives I have enriched with my family leave plan. ‘ If all else fails, he and Tony might consider a midget tag team. Would it not be nice to have Mr.Al Goehring come out of retirement to cover the, in ring action? Connie “the Italian Grandmother,” would make a great Ring Side Rosie. VA VA VOOM- Jo lynn Netherland, ahh, the perfect ring girl. Not sure where Wijnen-Riems would fit in, and I would be afraid of the consequence, if he wasn’t considered.

     
  24. I just wonder if Shep Smith asked for an audience with AL GOEHRING. As we all now know AWESOME AL, Has A COLLEGE DEGREE…and as he puts it, ” I’ve DONE GOOD THINGS OVER THE LAST 35 YEARS. I WAS THE LEAD RADIO REPORTER FOR THE CRASH OF FLIGHT-427, THREE PRESIDENTAL VISITS, TWO STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONSHIPS, A SCORE OF WPIAL-PIAA CHAMPIONS …and yawn and yawn and yawn.

     
      • @BBB…I suffer from severe obesity, and am an active drug addict, I prop myself up on the edge of my bed, or anywhere I find room, as I am also a hoarder. I spend my day eating and typing, and taking care of my eleven cats and two pitbulls. Maybe you and I can become close email friends, as I am also a sex addict. I have never worked… you know, it’s just not for me. I have a nice apt. section 8, and I’m on a fixed income THANK YOU UNCLE SAM. Bobby gotta run, Honey Boo-Boo’s re-run’s are coming on … I think this is the episode where she farts … it still cracks me up.
        I DAMN NEAR FER GOT I SPEND MOST OF MY TIME LISS NIN TA WMBA.

         
  25. Widener University Law is a third tier school that is not even rated nationally. Maybe he can make lawyering work, but it won’t be in Pittsburgh, New York or London. Duquesne would have been a viable local choice, but then he would have to deal with full-time attendance, higher per credit fees and minimal online check-ins. And, fellow classmates would not care how cute or local he is. If you are really serious about law school, you choose the reputation and record of the school to begin with, not the convenience. Frank and his Bow Tie found that out. And, he proved to be a major fuckup undermining people in his Courthouse job. These people could not hold a candle to Gerald Benyo or Judge (former lawyer) James Ross. Quality is quality, and you can’t get around that.

     
    • Raven- Congratulations is in order. You have won an award from JP as top commentator.
      Keep up the good work. Never let up, never let down and never take no for an answer.
      Best Regards, John Q.

       
  26. Ok JP. Time for a new story. You gave Al Goehring his 15 minutes of fame. He was a completely irrelevant clerk in the Treasures office. He sold hunting and dog licenses for christs sake. The last time I listened to WMBA/WBVP the Yankee trader was on the air. I really liked that clock radio grandma bought me on the show

     
  27. I would not be surprised if JC already landed a very lucrative executive position with Shell, starting in 2018.
