Monday, December 10, 2012
Don't panic. Don't check your computers. Don't call the authorities. Those pictures of your kids eating ice cream funny will have to wait. Facebook is down for many users, as of Monday evening.

Submit a claim now to be a part of or excluded from a class-action lawsuit that accuses EA of having a monopoly in exclusive licensing agreements with the NFL, NCAA and AFL
If you bought a new video game in the “Madden NFL,” “NCAA Football,” or “Arena Football” series for your Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, GameCube, Wii or PC — between Jan. 1, 2005 and June 21, 2012 — you could be entitled to some money from Electronic Arts. A class action lawsuit against Electronic Arts filed in the U.S. Federal District Court for the Northern District of California will soon be settled, and U.S. consumers who purchased any games in these series are affected by it. If settled, Electronic Arts would have to pay $27 million into a fund for settlement class members.

Judge Robert Simpson ruled Tuesday that implementation of Pennsylvania's new Voter ID law be put on hold until after the Nov. 6 general election.
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
A judge ruled today that Pennsylvania's tough new Voter ID Law should be put on hold until after the Nov. 6 general election, according to an Associated Press report. The ruling can be appealed to the state Supreme Court, which said it would expedite any further action in the case since Election Day is just five weeks away. Do you agree with the ruling? Tell us in the comments section below. Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson heard two days of testimony last week, as directed by the Supreme Court, to determine whether the state has made it easy enough to get a photo ID in order to vote. Opponents say the law, and the process to get an ID, disenfranchises voters. Supporters say the law will prevent voter fraud - but that justification …

West Main Diner in Lansdale hosted 13th Congressional District GOP candidate Joe Rooney and Sen. Bob Mensch to a special Lansdale Republican Club meet-and-greet event Monday night
As Republicans ready for the pop political venue known as the Republican National Convention, Joe Rooney readied himself for a pop political venue known as the 13th Congressional District. He said he's ready to for hard work. Like roll-up-your-sleeves hard work. Like tender-knuckles-from-all-the-door-knocking hard work. "I'm not a kamikaze," Rooney said. "I'm in this race because Allyson Schwartz is beatable." Current 13th Congressional District Democrat lawmaker Allyson Schwartz just isn't there, Rooney said. "I'm a firm believer in hard work. I believe hard work pays off," Rooney said. "I will work harder and smarter and it will pay off in the end." Rooney, GOP candidate for the 13th District, was welcomed Monday night by Wayne Sharp and…

How well does one drive since he or she got his or her license 16 years ago? Driver Training Services in North Wales was happy to answer that question for editor Tony Di Domizio
I thought I was a pretty good driver. Save for a parking ticket or speeding fine here and there, I thought my driving was pretty defensive and certainly precise. I was wrong, to an extent. I believe a majority of aged drivers have found his or her own niche in driving his or her vehicle and know the rules of the road well enough to get back and forth from Point A to Point B safely. In 1996, I got my driver's license on the first try at the PennDOT DMV in Dublin Township. In the past 16 years, I have had a handful of speeding tickets and parking violations - and one major accident, albeit that was when I was 16. One day, I came across an event listing for an AARP-sponsored senior citizen Safe Driving program at The PEAK Center in Lansdale…
