In this new feature, I’d like to share some of the issues and articles that are blowing up the Daily Item’s Facebook page each week.

We get a lot of good interaction on the page, and I’d like to share with you some highlights for this, the week of July 28:

  • Gilberton Police Chief suspended: People are drawn to this story about a man who posted some violent Youtube videos, but said it’s all to showcase his love of the Constitution. One of the best comments came from Faith Buckles: “I think it’s unnerving that some one with that attitude toward people would be allowed to “serve and protect” them at all. Should have been fired.”
  • PennDOT spends $19,000 on bridge lines: People are also up in arms about the $19,000 buffer on the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge – many thought it would be a high divider, including Elizabeth Ann Garrison, who said:  “It was a waste of time and money. They need to put a permanent barrier across the bridge.”
  • People also supported the large sentence given to Cleveland kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro, applauding the judge who gave him life in prison without parole plus 1,000 years
