Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton won't seek a fourth term this year. I wonder if he was hearing footsteps. While violence seems to be down a bit, I sense a lot of voters were ready to hold Leighton responsible for a bloody 2013.
Lackawanna County is taking applications for a new county commissioner. The usual suspects. I'm sure they all have something to offer, but a little freshness wouldn't hurt, either.
Pothole season appears to have arrived early. I'm taking careful notice. A lot of the problem areas are places that were poorly patched last year.
An idea to turn the foundering Mall at Steamtown into a Scranton version of Reading Market is apparently popular on Facebook. It's easy to hit the "like" button. Show me the money. It's not so easy now, is it?
Last week, I complained about the mediocre, at best, Late Late Show fill ins. Will Arnett had the chair Friday night and did a really good job. Having Jimmy Kimmel as a guest eased the burden.
