A Touch of Snow

If you are a regular visitor to the blog, you already know about the gun controversy in Cherry Tree, Indiana County, PA. (See last week's blog.) The following three pictures were shot during last night's borough meeting. For a small town on the border of Indiana and Cambria counties this has been the week from hell. News crews from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and points in between have descended on the town due to the interest in the proposed gun ordinance put forth by borough councilman Henry Statkowski. In a nutshell, the proposal said that every household within the borough had to maintain a fire arm for self defense. The idea was not well thought out. The proposal failed by a vote of 6 to 1, with Mr. Statkowski being the only one who voted for the proposed resolution.

Overflow crowd fills the borough office. Here are a few statistics from last night's meeting. Of the 52 people present, 11 sat at the borough council table. There were 4 television crews present that totalled 8 people, 3 print journalists and 2 photojournalists, including myself. 25 of the remaining 28 people were borough residents. The remaining 3 people drove 25 miles to see what the hubbub was all about. Go figure!
