The Ax is grinding in Northumberland County

The hammer falls this time on county human services director.

Boot Hill for the county employees now up to seven.


Brian Dawkins career as a Philadelphia Eagle ended this past Saturday when he signed a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos over the weekend. I got a chance to interview Dawkins in Shamokin about 10 years ago when he was in town for a charity basketball game. He was a great interview and brought a lot of intensity to a pick up basketball game. Athletically, though early in his career I thought there was great potential. At 5-11, he could reverse slam a basketball.

David Jones of the Patriot News puts it best about the end of Dawkins in Philadelphia.

I had to remind myself, are the Eagle owned by Jeffrey Laurie or Bill Bidwell or Vito Corleone. Can you hear in the back of your head, "It's not personal Brian, it's business."

Thanks for memories Brian, see you on your return trip in the fall.
