HUNTING FOR A CAUSE

While some hunters returned empty-handed, some brought back nearly a dozen gray, black and red squirrels for weighing. The organizers of the event began in the o dark thirty hours of the morning to make breakfast and then lunch for the hunters. As the club’s 3rd annual event, fifty percent of the proceeds went to support Pa Wounded Warriors. The hunters raised $6,000. Two wounded warriors participated in the event — Josh Rockwell, of Montoursville, and Chris Boyer, of Montgomery. Both were victims of IEDs.

U.S. REPRESENTATIVE FRED KELLER NOT RUNNING AGAIN
U.S. Rep. Fred Keller of Pennsylvania changed his mind Monday and said he will not run for reelection if he must face a primary election against another Republican incumbent. Pennsylvania’s highest court selected new boundaries for congressional districts last week, and Keller and U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson — who represent vast swaths of northern Pennsylvania where population is shrinking or stagnant — found their homes drawn into the same district, as the state adjusts to losing a seat. In a statement, Keller said, “I am not going to run against another member of Pennsylvania’s Republican Congressional Delegation.” Instead of challenging Thompson, Keller had initially said he would run in the new 9th District next door, where Republican Rep. Dan Meuser lives. Keller, 56, was elected in a special election in 2019 and is the newest member of Pennsylvania’s delegation.
