Eight months into a new ban on electronics in landfills, recycling options are dwindling for older model televisions.Some collection sites, such as Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania, have stopped taking cathode ray tube TVs altogether. Others, like AERC Recycling Solutions, which has a location in Allentown, have cut back on the amount they are accepting.Recyling centers are seeing a glut of the electronic dinosaurs as consumers trade up for lightweight, high tech flat screen TVs, which also have come down in price in recent years. But the old TVs are so bulky that they are gobbling up weight based quotas established to pay for their disposal.”There are more items out there to be recycled than there is money in the system to pay for it,” said Corey Dehmey, vice president of operations and compliance at AERC Recycling Solutions.Since January, Pennsylvania no longer allows TV sets, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors, mouses or printers to be put in the trash.
Bawdy song scholars have suggested that Australia is one of the last bastions of the genre. I tend to agree and would suggest the songs vigorously entered the tradition here at a time when we were a different country, a country born of a massively disproportionate male to female ratio.

Columnist Billy Fried has gone a bit too far with his vision for Laguna Beach transportation (” The dream of a traffic free Laguna,” Feb. 21). Most municipalities that have some of the services he mentions are large cities with multiple and sometimes even parallel wide streets that can be alternately configured to accommodate everything from pedestrians, bikers and skateboarders to, possibly, small hovercraft.
Not a Great if the market’s cultural mlange is interesting, the aesthetics aren’t likely to draw the foodie crowd. Eighteen wheelers idle outside the high, barbed wire topped fences. The buildings are dingy gray, low slung and poorly lit. Have such a young team and these guys have gotten invaluable experience all year. These freshman and sophomores got some time so we have to dedicate ourselves to getting in the weight room in the offseason so we can match some of these other teams physicality. I saw growth in this team all year.
