  • Letter: Return Bliss to the Senate

    Sen. Larry Bliss states that his legislative aims, if re-elected, will be to balance the best interests of the individuals and families he represents with promotion of business and jobs and protection of the environment. What a difficult task to coordinate all this. Often, enhancement of o...

    Tom Gruber had a mother with Alzheimer's disease. He could have let her stay in Philadelphia with other family members. Instead, he brought her here. He visited her every day. He made it a point to get to know the other residents at the Alzheimer's unit, their families and the staff. He lear...
