Scary city

So I see Shamokin is trying to alter its Third-Class City Code to allow for higher earned income taxes. Boy, that’s just great. People are living on a fixed income or low wages and they’re going to have to pay more in taxes on the money they worked hard to earn. And yet you look around Shamokin and you look at all the bums that are just drifting by and living off people who work hard, just like parasites. Shamokin is also considering possibly cutting down on its police force. Boy, that’s a smart move. My wife and I were walking down Independence Street to go to a local restaurant, and I looked at the people walking the street. I thought to myself, son-of-a-gun! I forgot my concealed-carry permitted weapon. I felt scared.
