A forklift manufactured by Taylor Machines and assembled partly in Philadelphia sat in the driveway on the South Lawn of The White House on Monday as President Trump recognized manufacturing.

Under third generation leadership, Taylor is a major progressive force in the worldwide materials handling equipment industry

  • LOWRY/The party of bad faith?
    If the Republican attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare ultimately fails, it will be a lesson in the wages of political bad faith.

      The current path of the Senate bill has plenty of obstacles, including the sheer inertia of the Obamacare status quo and the fact that no one has made the public case for the Republican legislation. But the effort also suffers from a mismatch between the longtime public posture o

    Fred Smith, of this county, was one of the sixteen boys who were awarded all-expense trips to State College 4-H Club Congress July 19-24.
  • BROOKS/Getting radical about inequality
    I’m not in the habit of recommending left-wing French intellectuals, but I’m beginning to think that Pierre Bourdieu is helpful reading in the age of Donald Trump. He was born in 1930, the son of a small-town postal worker. By the time he died in 2002, he had become perhaps the world’s most influential sociologist within the academy, and largely unknown outside of it.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 3:1-6
    Our text this week is one of the most famous narratives in the Bible; Moses and the burning bush.  Israel is in Egypt in the midst of great suffering.  It has been 40 years since Moses left Egypt. Moses is tending sheep on the far side of the desert (a remote place). He is tending the sheep of his father-in-law. He was once prince of Egypt, now he doesn’t even own his own sheep. He has to range to lonely places just to find pasture for them.
  • LOWRY/China isn’t going to lead
    The world has had its delusions about China over the years, but none quite as fantastical as the notion of Beijing assuming the mantle of global leadership.

    Ever since Donald Trump’s election, it has been a journalistic trope to speculate that China is about to take the lead on globalization, climate change and international diplomacy.
  • EDITORIAL/PSC’s Kemper mistake
    The Sierra Club and other special interest groups came out swinging early against Mississippi Power’s now $7 billion “clean coal” plant because anything coal is toxic in liberal circles, so their massive propaganda machines and a general media bias have led to gross misconceptions.

    For one thing, shareholders of parent Southern Company have eaten the $3 billion in overruns. What’s more, rate hikes for Mississippi Power customers are lower than any others associated with new power generation.
  • BROOKS/How we are ruining America
    Over the past generation, members of the college-educated class have become amazingly good at making sure their children retain their privileged status. They have also become devastatingly good at making sure the children of other classes have limited chances to join their ranks.

    How they’ve managed to do the first task — giving their own children a leg up — is pretty obvious. It’s the pediacracy, stupid. Over the past few decades, upper-middle-class Americans have embraced behavior codes that put cultivating successful children at the center of life. As soon as they get money, they turn it into investments in their kids.

    Mrs. Sibb Hutchison entertained the Intermediate Epworth League of the Methodist Church with a party on the lawn of her home on Thursday evening.
  • ‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.                                                                                             — Jeremiah 32:17 ESV
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Psalm 32
    At the end of Exodus chapter 2 we observed that the groaning of Israel and their crying out to God because of their bondage was connected to the deliverance God promised for Israel. This foreshadows the misery of a sinner under guilt who can find true relief in the deliverance God only can provide.

    It isn’t pleasant to face sin within ourselves, but if we deny the truth of the bondage and misery of sin we will not embrace the provision God has graciously provided. The sinfulness of sin is no barrier to deliverance; the denial of it is. In this psalm, David guides us through his own experience from the weight of guilt and his stubbornness in not confessing his sin, to the blessedness of forgiveness.
