    New book shows how Lt. Col. Alex Vindman was the real instigator of the Ukraine investigation that formed the pretext for Democrats' impeachment of President Trump. The most interesting thing about Byron York’s exhaustively reported and richly detailed new impeachment book, “Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment’s Never-Ending War on Trump,” is that the whistleblower who filed the official complaint that got impeachment rolling isn’t ever identified.It turns out that the heated discussion over the whistleblower, who was previously identified by Real Clear Investigations as the CIA’s Eric Ciaramella, was a diversion from allowing the American people to understand who was...

    York County officials confirmed 190 inmates have tested positive for the coronavirus since testing began at the prison last spring. According to county spokesman Mark Walters, 173 inmates or detainees are in isolation as of Saturday. A majority of their positive test results were discovered this week during mass testing, Walters said. He said they are still awaiting the results of 60 tests. “As stated [Friday] the increase in positive results experienced earlier this week, is not unexpected considering the congregate living situation present in the Prison facility and with the increase in communicative spread that we are seeing in...

    A group of 75 community members peacefully protested at York Catholic High School on Saturday after a student was told he couldn’t wear a Black Lives Matter mask to graduation, the York Daily Record reported. Protestors marched from the Veterans Memorial Gold Star Healing and Peace Garden to the York Catholic High School, where speakers told stories about the administration’s alleged discrimination against Black students and members of the LGBTQ community. The senior, Dean Holmes, told the Daily Record that he wore the mask to graduation practice and was never told to take it off. On the day of graduation,...

    A day after the “physical attack” on York City Hall, officials say the facility will need to remain closed through Friday to assess and repair the damage. Kevin Isaiah Waller, 24, of Philadelphia was charged with breaking into the building and destroying everything from doors, to computers, to random property on Wednesday night. On Thursday evening, officials released an update saying that that the property damage to the city’s Information Technology department is forcing the extended closure. “We are actively working to assess and repair the damaged caused with the goal of restoring operations as soon as possible,” official said....

    Last spring, York's Guildhall found itself in dire straits. Water dripped from the 15th-century meeting hall's ceiling, and cracks in one of its walls were so large that visitors could stick a hand straight through them, reported David Dunning for local radio station Minster FM at the time. That fall, the local government launched a £16.5-million construction project aimed at restoring the historic building -- which has stood on the banks of the River Ouse in the northeastern English city for more than 500 years -- to its former glory. But the work has revealed more than just dilapidated walls:...

    Rock Hill Herald ^ | Andrew Dys
    A York County Council member is now demanding county officials act to recommend people wear masks in public as coronavirus cases continue to soar. William “Bump” Roddey told county management and his fellow council members that county officials have been too “laid back” about the need for masks. After the cities of Columbia and Greenville passed emergency ordinances this week requiring masks in public, and Charlotte’s mayor asked North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper for a public mask requirement, Roddey said York County must act to ensure public health and safety. Roddey said the recent spike of cases in York County...

    A Pennsylvania lawmaker is fervently supporting the owners of two York County diners that reportedly lost their operation licenses because they opened for dine-in services ahead of the governor’s schedule. In a lengthy Facebook post on Friday, Rep. Mike Jones (R-York) insisted the two Round the Clock Diner locations were issued a Notice of Emergency Temporary Suspension, but didn’t lose any licenses. Written warnings were issued on May 14 to the 222 Arsenal Road and 145 Memory Lane locations, according to Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Shannon Powers. But because they reopened for dine-in services ahead of schedule, their licenses were...

    President Donald Trump said U.S. health officials should have a “good idea” whether an anti-malaria drug being tested as a treatment for COVID-19 is effective in fighting the coronavirus in “the next three days.” “Hydroxychloroquine is something that I have been pushing very hard,” Trump said Monday morning during an interview on Fox News. “I think we’re going to have a good idea over the next three days because it’s been used now in New York at my request -- 1,100 people. It’s been used. I think that’s better than testing it in a laboratory. But the doctors tell me...

    Natural gas developers in Pennsylvania are hoping a recent water quality report by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission could squelch plans for a fracking ban that’s currently being considered by the neighboring Delaware River Basin Commission. The SRBC’s Remote Water Quality Monitoring Network report, which was released last month, revealed that water quality scores at 14 of the 16 stations in the basin were in the “good” or “excellent” categories According to a fact sheet from the Susquehanna commission, the monitoring stations are located in areas where active drilling takes place, as well as areas free of development, in order...

In the 75 minutes of the meeting—which Slate obtained a recording of, and of which a lightly condensed and edited transcript appears below—Baquet and the paper’s other leadership tried to resolve a tumultuous week for the paper, one marked by a reader revolt against a front-page headline and a separate Twitter meltdown by Jonathan Weisman, a top editor in the Washington bureau.

    A Red Lion woman faces criminal charges after state police said she exposed her breasts to a trooper during a Thursday afternoon arrest. State police in York said they were called to the 400 block of South Charles Street in Red Lion Borough about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, when they found 25-year-old Brianna L. Wilson. According to police, a warrant had previously been issued for Wilson’s arrest. A trooper attempted to take her into custody, when Wilson flashed him, police said. “The accused became irate and exposed her bare breasts to the trooper in a taunting/inappropriate manner,” police said.

    I just want to say that David Wood-and the handful of Christians in attendance-exhibited the attributes that one would expect from people who were saved from death by Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. While his opponent, and almost all of the Muslims in attendance-with the exception of the evening's host, who deserves to be commended for his efforts to impose civility-exhibited all of the attributes of those who are profoundly lost and who venerate a man who was imbued with wickedness, and served as the literal translator of the Devil. Even so, I hope that some...

    MORE than 70 Roman skeletons were discovered on the site of a former hotel in York. The grade two listed building, formerly the Newington Hotel in Mount Vale Drive, overlooks Knavesmire and has been stripped back by developers to create seven new family houses. During the renovation of the Georgian building, developers were surprised to find human remains, and the York Archaeological Trust were called in to assist with the recovery. Developer John Reeves said the development had retained most of its original Georgian features, but the scheme had also involved some "interesting" elements. He said: "The refurb has not...

    The story of five black women who were asked to leave a York County golf course for reportedly playing too slowly is making headlines and causing outrage across the country. The group of regular golfers said they were confronted at the second hole by Steve Chronister, one of the owners of the Grandview Golf Course and a former county commissioner, who accused them of lagging and offered to refund their money if they would leave. They were the only African Americans or all-female groups on the course in Dover Township, according to Sandra Thompson, who posted a detailed account of...

Schiff accused Republicans of altering a GOP memo that allegedly shows FBI surveillance abuses before they sent the memo to the White House without getting the changes approved by the committee.... There's just one problem with Schiff's story: It appears to be overblown, deceptive, and a desperate attempt to stop the memo... Byron York, a columnist for the Washington Examiner, spoke with sources on the committee who gave insight into the changes that were supposedly made to memo. York tweeted: "Just talked with House Intel source. Said total changes to memo were: A) Unknown number of 'grammatical and clarifying'...

Who-eee! They really need to lay off the spiked Eggnog over there.
