2020.11.20 21:04 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 11 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-5-1) @ Cleveland Browns (6-3)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-5-1) at Cleveland Browns (6-3)
This is a matchup between two teams headed in completely opposite directions. The Browns are a team on the rise looking to have their first winning record since 2007. Meanwhile the Eagles look like they are headed to their first losing record since Doug Pederson’s first season in 2016. Pederson’s offense which was once thought to be creative has become stale. The screen game which was once a staple of the offense has become nonexistent and Pederson frequently abandons the run early despite having one of the top running backs in the league which kills the play-action game. The coach’s arrogance has prevented him from hiring a true OC and handing over play-calling duties and that arrogance has seen his team make first round exits in the playoffs the last two years. I don’t have an answer for what this team needs to do for a win because with Doug calling the plays I think we can expect the same stale offense we have seen throughout this season. The same can be said with the Eagles defense where Jim Schwartz believes in his scheme over his players and rarely puts his guys in the best position and relies on them winning one on ones to bail him out. Hopefully this season will be a wakeup call to ownership and the coaching staff that the Super Bowl season was 3 years ago and they have been mediocre since that game. As always go Birds.

Eagles 29 - Browns 10
The Eagles kicked off the 2016 season against the Cleveland Browns. 2nd Overall pick Carson Wentz made his debut. The Eagles started off well. Wentz threw his 1st career TD to Jordan Matthews. Caleb Sturgis missed a field goal in the 1st Quarter but made one early in the 2nd Quarter to extend the lead to 10–0. The Browns would respond early in the 2nd quarter with an Isaiah Crowell 1 yard TD to cut the Eagles lead to 10–7. The Eagles only managed to kick another Sturgis field goal in the 2nd Quarter which resulted in a 13–7 lead at halftime. The Browns then kicked another field goal to change the score to 13–10. Midway through the 3rd Quarter, a bad snap by Browns center Cameron Erving went over the head of Quarterback Robert Griffin III and into the end zone for a safety and it extended the Eagles lead to 15–10. Following that drive, Wentz and the offense went back to work . Wentz threw his 2nd TD to Nelson Agholor to change the score to 22–10. The Eagles mainly burned out the clock in the 4th quarter to weaken the Browns hopes of a comeback. Ryan Mathews sealed the game with a 1-yard TD to make the final score 29–10.

Stats to Know
Eagles to Face One of the Greatest Former Eagles of All Time
I’m not sure I know of any Eagles fan that misses former Eagles Safety Andrew Sendejo, do you? Hey Browns fans, are you enjoying him yet? Sendejo is known for not just his bad tackling, but also taking out his own teammates (“Sorry, Avonte!”). It just so happens that Sendejo’s propensity for missed tackles is at an all-time low this season. Of 93 Safeties with appreciable snaps, Sendejo is tied for 4th-worst tackling efficiency (weighted per snap). He is tied for 2nd-worst in number of missed tackles against the run (7), which puts him on a season’s pace notably worse than any other season in the raw stat. His tackling efficiency this season is 5.2, so far, compared to 6.0 last year and 7.2 the year before. Looking at coverage ability, he’s allowing a passer rating of 135 this season, compared to 95 last year, and 84 the year prior. I’ll take Will Parks for now. You enjoy, Browns fans.
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Run Defense vs Browns Rushing Offense
The Browns are an analytically driven team and because of that they know that a good, efficient, and explosive passing attack is key to success in the NFL. That has been a bit of a struggle at times this year for a number of reasons. One area of their team where they haven't struggled is in the running game. First year HC Kevin Stefanksi has brought a lot of the good he implemented with the Vikings to the Browns as they have an incredibly effective and diverse running game; they do just about everything and do it well. Why? Their offensive line has quickly become one of the best in the NFL. A big reason for this success is new OL coach Bill Callahan, one of the best OL coaches in the game. One thing that works in Callahan's favor is the improved talent on the roster. Joel Bitonio has long been on of the best guards in the NFL; Callahan has then made Wyatt Teller a force on the inside. Rookie Jedrick Willis has been a stud at Left Tackle and Center JC Tretter is very solid and a bit underrated. The Browns may be without RT Jack Conklin on Sunday due to COVID; his replacement will be an inevitable downgrade, unfortunately. Stefanski has gotten by with worse at the position, just look at the Vikings OL. Their scheme does a lot to hide the flaws in talent which is what any good coach should be doing. On top of that, the Browns will have Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt at running back. This is the best running back room in the NFL. The Eagles have struggled against the run of late due to their atrocious LBs and Safeties. Their defensive line is still good, but watch the linebackers. They aren't physical and they have absolutely no clue how to consistently execute their run fits. Watch this opening TD run from Daniel Jones. What on God's green earth is this? TJ Edwards absolutely blew his run responsibility. Watch Jalen Mills shy away from contact. This is why the Eagles run defense is bad. In possibly unfavorable conditions to pass, the Browns may lean on their advantage upfront and the Eagles may struggle to stop it. There isn't much reason to think they won't either as they've struggled against lesser competition than what they are about to face.
Eagles Passing Attack vs Browns Pass Defense
The Browns have a pretty average defense by DVOA but do have a good cornerback in Denzel Ward. Defensively, the Browns are pretty similar to Eagles in terms of scheme. Ward is very sticky in man coverage and isn't afraid to get physical with receivers. Ronnie Harrison has emerged this year as a quality safety after flaming out with the Jaguars the previous couple of season. Terrance Mitchell is also another quality corner for the Browns. Outside of that, there isn't much that is spectacular for the Browns after their pass rush. The Eagles have healthy weapons in Goedert, Reagor, Fulgham, Ward, Alshon, Sanders, and Scott to take advantage of holes in the middle of their defense. The Browns also start Andrew Sendejo at Safety, who all Eagles fans should be familiar with as he sucks. News broke on Friday that Myles Garrett is on the COVID list and won't play on Sunday. Hopefully Garrett will be fine; in terms of football, this is an incredible gift for the Eagles. Garrett is on his way to earning his first DPOY award and would be an absolutely nightmare for the Eagles to defend even as the OL gets healthy. The Browns pass rush could still have it's moments against the Eagles OL but given the Garrett loss, the Eagles need to be able to take advantage of the holes in the Browns pass defense. Can the Eagles suddenly shit tier starter actually play well? Can Doug remember how to be a good offensive mind?
Eagles Pass Rush vs Browns Pass Blocking
The Eagles defense lives and dies by their pass rush. They will have their full compliment of pass rushers again for this contest against a very good Browns offensive line. The major weakness for the Browns OL on Sunday will be at RT as Jack Conklin may not play. If he doesn't, the Browns would be wise to send all kinds of help that way as Brandon Graham has been having an All Pro caliber season. It is key the Eagles get pressure on Baker Mayfield when they do pass as he is one of the leagues worst QBs under pressure. Mayfield is a lot like Wentz this year: prone to mistakes under pressure with poor pocket management that puts him in trouble. The Browns have more than enough weapons in the passing game to be able to take advantage of the Eagles defense provided Mayfield has time to throw. Darius Slay will give Jarvis Landry issues but no one else should really put up much of a fight against the Browns receivers. The Eagles LBs and Safeties are also incapable of covering anything; the Browns TEs and RBs should have a field day. As always with the Eagles, as the DL goes so goes the defense as a whole.

2020.11.13 21:21 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 10 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-4-1) @ New York Giants (2-5)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4-1) vs New York Giants (2-7)
I don’t know what to say about the NFC East Matchups. The entire division is struggling with major injuries to key players and the division is by far the worst in the NFL, but the divisional games have all been competitive with the last matchup between these two being decided by a single point. The Eagles will show up to this matchup a little bit healthier especially in weapons for Carson who will have Miles Sanders, Dallas Goedert, Alshon Jeffrey and Jalen Raegor for this matchup, all of whom were out last game. Carson was able to throw for 300+ yards last game, he should be able to build on that number with an added number of weapons. The Giants were able to put up points last week vs the Football Team and pull out their second W of the season. The Eagles will need to pressure Jones and force him into turning the ball over like the first matchup and the Eagles need to be able to take advantage of those turnovers. Carson said he reviewed his turnovers in the first half of the season and said he knows he needs to protect the ball better, he needs to prove it this week coming off the bye. If Carson protects the football, the Eagles should be able to move the ball against the bewildered Giants and cruise to an easy win, but if he continues to turn the ball over like the first half, I predict another sloppy NFCE matchup that goes down to the wire. Go Birds!

Eagles 22 - Giants 21
The Eagles faced off against the division rival Giants who were coming off their first win of the season and were looking for a 2nd for first year coach Joe Judge. The Eagles have moved to 2-4-1 on the season after rallying to defeat the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football, 22-21. After New York gave its best punch of the night a 97-yard touchdown drive headlined by Daniel Jones to go up 21-10 with just over six minutes to play, Philadelphia scored 12 unanswered points to earn the win. Carson Wentz led a 71-yard touchdown drive to give the Eagles the lead with just 40 seconds to play after connecting with running back Boston Scott on an 18-yard reception. Along with the comeback, he finished his night with 359 yards passing, two touchdowns and one interception while completing passes to eight different Eagles receivers. He also ran for 15 yards and a touchdown. As for the Giants, they mustered just 325 yards of offense and struggle to protect Daniel Jones throughout the contest.

Eagles 34 - Giants 17
Wentz led to his fourth straight must-win game and the team finished an elimination game without seven starters on offense. Already missing three starting wide receivers for the fourth straight game, the Eagles also began the game without Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz and right tackle Lane Johnson. Then they lost running back Miles Sanders and three-time Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks in the first half. But Scott, Josh Perkins, Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett and Robert Davis combined for 16 catches on 25 targets, 225 yards receiving, 54 yards rushing and four TDs. The five players were cut a combined eight times by four teams since Aug. 31. Carson Wentz threw for 289 yards, including a 24-yard TD pass to Perkins, who was promoted from the practice squad on Nov. 30. It was the Eagles’ 7th straight win vs the Giants and clinched the NFCE. Giants coach Pat Shurmur was fired the following Monday.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Eagles were on bye Week 9.
Giants - For the second time in four weeks, New York beat Washington on Sunday, holding on for a 23-20 victory at FedEx Field. It was another close win for the Giants over their NFC East rival, after earning a 20-19 victory in the first meeting between the two teams in Week 6. New York built a 17-point lead by halftime, and although Washington made things interesting in the second half, it wasn't enough to come back against the Giants, who relied on early success from their offense and big plays from their defense.

Stats to Know
Shane Lemieux’s Education
Rookie OG Shane Lemieux has facial hair. Fletcher Cox has a mustache. And that’s about as much as RG Shane Lemieux will be able to mirror DT Fletcher Cox. Due to Will Hernandez’s injury, Monsieur Lemieux is in at Guard and this week will prove challenging for him, to say the least. According to PFF, the greatest NFL player evaluation service in the history of evaluation services, not a single other OLman with appreciable snaps has offered a lower Pass Block grade than him, at 12.1. For him to achieve that, while still only allowing 8 pressures (over 2 weeks: 5 & 3 pressures), is impressive. To do that you have to be monumentally bad and he can’t afford that sort of game against the Eagles’ Defensive Line.
Matchups to Watch
Carson Wentz vs. Competency
The biggest issue facing the Eagles in the short term isn't the injuries - it is the QB. That's my QB, a guy I've long defended and still believe in, but BAE has me wavering. The simple fact is Carson Wentz is a bottom 3 QB in the NFL this year and that's his fault. From accuracy, to turnovers, to shit pocket management, etc, Wentz has been trailer trash in 2020 aside from like 2, maybe 3 games. Yes, the roster has been decimated. Yes, coaching has been wildly unimpressive. However, Wentz can't take care of business irrespective of the situation around him. Backup receivers don't cause inaccurate passes. Backup offensive linemen don't make him hold onto the ball too long to where he gets hit and fumbles. No one is making him skip back and forth over the line of self-destruction and aggression. Wentz is doing that on his own. He obviously isn't taking his own advice when he says he has to take care of the ball and whatever coaching points are given to him during the week are going in one ear and out of the other. He's a 5th year pro playing worse than his rookie year. That's on him. There needs to be a come to Jesus moment with Wentz where he gets right. The Eagles can be competitive in every game they play when the QB is playing at a competent - forget high - level. Carson Wentz has shown all of us this year that his ceiling is still quite high at its peaks: the first game against the Giants on their last two drives. He's also shown his league-worst floor: SNF against Dallas. Long term and short term, Wentz must raise his floor. He doesn't need to be a hero and save the team from their sins each and every play like he seemingly tries to. FEW QBs CAN. And most don't. Steady play from him will go a long way. Right now, the coaches are calling an offensive game plan that is weak and scared of their QB. Why would they do anything different? How can anyone trust this guy not to continue to blow games? The fact is the Eagles will win this game with a clean game from their QB. It's just a crapshoot if he does.
Eagles Offensive Line vs. Giants Army of Defensive Tackles
The Giants have a really good group of interior defensive lineman and we would know since they kicked our ass in the first matchup this season. The Eagles were absent Isaac Seumalo and Brandon Brooks in that one and it showed. There is a possibility we'll have Seumalo back for this one and that would be a huge addition to an overmatched offensive line. I don't want to belittle the work of the Eagles backups and Jeff Stoutland especially since they've done an admiral job given all of the injuries; it's just undeniable the Eagles are overmatched in the trenches here, especially on the interior. Every healthy body helps. As we've seen with Wentz this year, he is a mess under pressure and navigating a muddy pocket. He'll still likely have these issues on Sunday but hopefully less so than the first matchup. The return of Seumalo and possibly Lane Johnson will also go a long way to helping the run game provide any sort of production for the offense. The Eagles prefer winning with their OL and DL; this year has been a struggle for the OL but not a complete disaster that we expected. We just need the talent to return in order to improve.
Eagles Weapons vs Giants Secondary
Perhaps I was more bearish on the Giants secondary outside of Bradberry in the first match up; I still don't think it is a very good unit, but the defensive side of the ball for the Giants is far from the biggest issue with this team. The Eagles will have Miles Sanders, Jalen Reagor, and Dallas Goedert for this game when all three were unavailable in the first contest. All three pair well with Giant-killer Boston Scott. The Eagles have enough weapons to really attack the Giants defense if they get quality play out of their QB. This Giants defense still struggles in coverage outside of Bradberry, especially in the middle of the field, which leads to a favorable outlook for Goedert. A functioning offense will take a lot of pressure off the defense and put the Eagles in the rare position of having a favorable game script.
Eagles Defensive Line vs Giants Offensive Line
This is always something to monitor for the Eagles as they only have one good cover guy on defense in Darius Slay. The Eagles struggle to match up against defenses in man coverage because they don't have the personnel to cover anyone other than Darius Slay. They struggle in zone as they don't have smart, instinctive players with awareness in zone. The LBs and Safeties are all bad in coverage. Competent offenses and QBs always expose this weakness for the Eagles and that won't change until the talent and coaching changes on the defense. This week the Eagles have another favorable matchup for their defense in Daniel Jones. Jones is a one read, timing QB, that struggles at the one thing he is supposed to be good at. Like Wentz, he is a turnover machine and holds his offense back mightily. The only difference between the two is Jones was at no point considered a top 10 QB. Even without Barkley and possibly Golden Tate, the Giants have more than enough weapons to cook the Eagles defense. Slay played a really good game in their first matchup locking down Slayton, but we saw Sterling Shepard obliterate Jalen Mills. Shepard is a good receiver, so it wasn't a high bar for him to clear in that matchup, but they can make you pay. The Eagles defensive MVP in that contest was Evan Engram; he had a tipped pass that led to an Eagles INT and a killer drop that likely would have ended the game, preventing the comeback. For all of the Giants struggles, the Eagles coverage unit simply doesn't offer enough resistance against the Giants weapons. It comes down to how much disruption the Eagles defensive line can cause, which is par for the course. The Giants offensive line has been an absolute mess this season but is coming off a great game against the Redskins vaunted defensive front. Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox continue to play at high levels. Josh Sweat has been pretty good this year. Derek Barnett is the same as usual. Lastly, Malik Jackson will return to the line up and he has been an under-the-radar stud for the Eagles this year. They also need to have their marquee free agent acquisition, Javon Hargrave, make an impact. They'll need all of these guys to play well to ensure they keep the Giants weapons in line since we know the Eagles secondary struggles stopping nosebleeds.

2020.10.27 04:36 Rager_YMN_6 The polls are likely wrong again. Ever significant data point outside of media/university polls demonstrate Trump will not only outperform said polls but is more primed to pull of another historic upset than people think.

WARNING: This post will be all over the place and will be pages long! It also was written days ago (on another sub and deleted by the mods for some reason) & data in the past few days has likely updated & slightly altered the details of the post
There are several data points and conjecture that these polls demonstrating that Joe Biden is up by 10+ are way off. Apparently, Joe Biden is set to win by more than Barack Obama did in his landslide election in 2008, and set to beat an incumbent in the biggest landslide since FDR beat Herbert Hoover... in today's far more polarized America... that would be unprecedented. But let's look at some early data
1. First off, Republicans are out registering Democrats in new voter registrations in every significant battle ground state in the country. New voter registrations are a better predictor than polls as polls cannot pick up newly registered voters & add them to their roll call lists.
Just look at Florida, for example. Florida Democrats had a 500k voter registration lead over Republicans in 2012 and Barack Obama only won by 75,000 votes. FL Democrats had a 330k voter registration lead in 2016 and Trump won by 113k votes. Today? Florida Democrats have a 130k voter registration lead and has added 193,000 net Republican voters since 2016. Republicans are even out registering Democrats in the past few months in Miami Dade!
https://www.politico.com/states/florida/story/2020/10/15/florida-republicans-cut-democrats-registration-edge-to-historic-low-1325644
https://twitter.com/mantlehog/status/1316819330026352640
Look at Pennsylvania. The GOP has netted well over 200k new voters since 2016, outpacing Democrats (who netted about 80k), and continue to eat away at the historic Dem lead in PA. And these aren't just ancestral Democrat voters who've voted R forever, voted for Trump and now are finally switching. There are only a few thousand documented party switches from D to R (and even less from R to D, primarily in the suburbs), and Republicans are even out registering in Allegheny county (Pittsburgh)!
https://www.mcall.com/news/elections/mc-nws-eln-pennsylvania-registration-update-1007-20201008-44dhgqtup5brvcyqsmntfzfojq-htmlstory.html
https://twitter.com/mantlehog/status/1316359091430789126
North Carolina has shifted even more Red in new registration, as more Democrats change their voter registration to unaffiliated, especially black voters.
https://twitter.com/mantlehog/status/1314926588962770944
https://abc11.com/nc-voters-black-unaffiliated-vote/7002772/
Arizona had shifted blue for the 2018 Midterms but shifted a bit Red since, netting more GOP voters than Dem voters. Maricopa County, which is Phoenix (a Democrat stronghold), has netted more new GOP voters in the past few months.
https://twitter.com/mantlehog/status/1315655961529454592
2. The Polls Predict Democrats are supposed to Win the Early Vote by 20, 30, or 40 points by election day. I believe somewhere on Twitter, Nate Silver (the Golden boy of poll punditry), stated early voting is supposed to be D+34 points in favor of Democrats.
https://news.gallup.com/poll/321602/extreme-partisan-gaps-early-voting-emerge-year.aspx
Some polls in September claimed Democrats are gonna outnumber Republicans in mail in balloting by a 3:1 ratio. There are projected to be record turnout of 30%+ new voter turnout, which would yield 40 million new voters this election with record youth turnout & minority turnout.
But based on early vote data modeled by Targetsmart's model in several important states where Biden has a large polling lead, Democrats are either barely up, tied or are losing in the early vote and are nowhere near what the polls said they would be at in the early vote.
Here's the link to Targetsmart's available dashboard:
https://targetearly.targetsmart.com/
Now, this is a newer model that is supposed to be more favorable to Democrats. Tim Bonier, the head guy at Targetsmart, received backlash from his original model because it seemed too favorable to Republicans and was not coinciding with data from the polls, so this newer model is the only one I can find. Even then, these numbers still look underwhelming for Democrats if they are indeed the party that's supposed to dominate in Vote-By-Mail and early in-person voting.
Despite there supposed to a HUGE surge of new voters & young voters that will bring this new coalition of Democrat support in condemnation of Trump, the youth vote is nowhere near where it was projected to be. Why? Maybe closed down colleges likely played a hand in this, as college kids aren't as motivated as they need people to hold their hands to vote at the ballot box.
Rs are either tied with Ds or leading in multiple battleground states when they're supposed to be down by 20-30+ in the early vote. Look at Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, Texas, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, etc.
Even in states where Dems have slim leads, like Florida, mailed out ballots in Democrat strongholds a week earlier than the rest of the state (like Broward & Orange county, FL) and are opening in-person voting later than a lot of other states. There are some conservative Florida counties who just started voting & still haven't as I'm writing this. This leads me to believe Rs will continue to close the gap in-person, as we've already seen that in states like Georgia (where Rs have caught up as time has gone on).
Even then, even if Democrats did come out in the early vote instead of vote on Election Day, that might be hurtful to their 'Get Out the Vote' efforts as well. There's such a thing as 'cannibalizing' your vote, as early voting reform may decrease turnout from groups that vote early as the social pressure to vote on Election Day is alleviated over a longer period of time and doesn't resonate with infrequent voters.
There are multiple studies on this but I can't find them all right now.
https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/09/23/study-early-voting-associated-with-lower-turnout/
https://www.jstor.org/stable/24363471?seq=1
3. One more important factor to remember is that since Democrats are more likely to vote by mail, they are more likely to have their ballots somehow rejected/tampered with/lost. In states like PA & NC, there has already been problems with ballots being improperly mailed out & ballots being improperly filled out (naked ballots, procedural errors, etc). A lot of voters that live in states with mail in voting (Florida, Arizona) are likely comfortable with mass mail in voting, but the ones in PA are new to the process and clearly the state of PA is not prepared to handle mass mail in voting.
https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/521557-pennsylvania-rejects-372k-mail-in-ballot-applications-following-primary
https://www.npr.org/2020/10/01/918368319/naked-ballot-rule-could-lead-to-thousands-of-pa-votes-getting-rejected
https://www.buckscountycouriertimes.com/story/news/2020/10/15/how-many-mail-ballots-rejected-pennsylvania/3651762001/
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/oct/17/black-voters-mail-in-ballots-rejected-higher-rate-north-carolina
UPDATE: Court cases in NC & PA have gone in favor of Democrats by extending deadlines and allowing rejected ballots that are improperly signed to be counted now, so that likely helps Democrats.... but there might be another appeal to the Supreme Court, so that could shift it also.
Even if Democrats win every court case to protect their ballots, the nature of the uncertainty of this election can still mess with the final results.
4. Enthusiasm favors the Incumbent President as the Economy bounces back, people are more enthused to vote for the Incumbent and people claim to be better off than they were 4 years ago.
Trump had Record Turnout in the 2020 Primaries as Evidence of a far more Enthusiastic Base. He got the highest amount of votes in the New Hampshire Primary of an Incumbent President ever. More than Obama in 2012, Bush in 2004, Clinton in 1996, etc.
https://www.concordmonitor.com/TRUMP-PRESIDENT-DONALD-PRIMARY-2020-WIN-32640312
No incumbent has ever lost with over 75% of his own party's support, and Trump won 94% of the vote within his own party despite media polls propping up guys like Bill Weld trying to claim the 'his Party is leaving him in droves'
https://www.usatoday.com/elections/results/primaries/republican/
This is the Primary Model, which is based on primary performance data that I already talked about, which has accurately predicted the winner of elections all but 2 times since primaries were a thing.

Enthusiasm Gap
https://jacobinmag.com/2020/09/joe-biden-donald-trump-enthusiasm-gap
Gallup: 56% of Americans are better off now than they were 4 years ago, economic attitude is up, most Americans believe Trump will win, and party affiliation tracked by Gallup has gone from D+5 to R+1 in the past few months. A Rep lead in party identification going into a Presidential election has not happened in since 2004.
Gallup is the most reputable pollster as they have decades of historical data to fall back on. The winner of these polls are likely to go on to win reelection

Trump outraising Biden in personal donations in every bellweather area. Despite Trump's base being far poorer they are outdonating Biden's by 5:1 in some battleground areas. NPR has a great map contrasting donations made for both candidates where you can specifically see where donations are coming from.

Google Search Trends is another indicator of enthusiasm
https://stewartmedia.com.au/google-trends-has-predicted-the-us-president-since-2004/
5. Polls are becoming more unreliable in general, as response rates continue to decline and the regional divide in America continues to increase and make it more difficult on the polling industry.
https://www.imediaethics.org/five-polling-trends-from-the-past-decade/
People have talked about 2016 polling a lot already, so I don't feel like continuing to reiterate how off the state polling especially was. Funny enough, the same polls from last time are telling a similar story. Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania polls are showing Trump with a similar deficit now that he had on this same day in 2016 (not on election day, because polls tightened in the last week).
One angle I feel like that isn't explored is the fact that the regional divide in American continues to increase. Rural voters shift Red, Suburban voters shift Blue, and I have a theory that this is the reason why pollsters are continuing to miss more & more voters. Swing state Republicans switching to Democrat since 2016 are dwarfed by the number of Ds switching to R, but it seems that the pollsters are continuing to pick up a larger share of suburban/urban voters over time (and are picking up on the Rs switching D, which supports the common theory that Trump's losing his base).
But let's take a look at Nate Cohn's map of OH & PA.

Not only are response rates for people nowadays just in the fuckin toilet, but because these more rural/exurban folks aren't answering pollsters (even Republican biased pollsters), pollsters are getting overrepresentative samples of suburban/urban liberals that are far more eager to answer these polls. There are some counties where Trump won them by 30+ and still is continuing to grow his base (yes, grow even more among rural voters) due to voter registration data and other indicators, but NYT has some of these areas, like Greene county, going Democrat for a 2:1 ratio? Do you honestly believe counties that added 5x more Republicans in new voter registrations are gonna swing all the way back for Biden 20, 30, 40+ points?
I think you have to account for education AND region by employing multiple different modes of communication to reach these people. Rural, non-college educated voters in Southeast PA aren't the same type of rural, NCE voters in Northeast PA or Central PA. Amish voters in Lancaster, PA are a different demographic than the working class voters in Erie, PA. You can't reach these people in these areas just by using live-caller modes as these people just won't talk to you if you call them and ask them to fill out a 30 minute phone survey with someone sneaking false premises in their polling questions. Just because you weigh for education doesn't mean you're accounting for all the people you missed. Again, this is just my theory, as I think a lot of these pollsters are suffering from similar problems.
Ultimately, there are other indicators that demonstrate these polls aren't representative of what's going on the ground and aren't predictive of the election.... But most importantly, I could be very, VERY wrong. I likely am. I'm not even saying Trump is the favorite; just that he has a much better chance than the mainstream media is giving him right now. But I'd just like to make a confident prediction to let people know this is a competitive race.

2020.10.16 22:30 FFFaux DNS Registration Error

I work with an organization which feeds the homeless in Lancaster, PA called Anchor Lancaster. We recently changed our name from Anchorage Breakfast Program to Anchor Lancaster and accordingly changed our web domain on our cloversites page to AnchorLancaster.org. However, whenever someone using xfinity attempts to connect to AnchorLancaster.org they are met with an error stating that the site cannot be reached, that the IP address could not be found and "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN." Furthermore, no one with an @comcast email address can successfully reach us by email.
This is causing my employer a great deal of grief and is causing our homeless ministry a great deal of money. I have reached out to customer service multiple times and, in order, have been assured they would resolve the issue and get back to me within 24 hours (they haven't), been hung up on, and been told that they are incapable of helping me and that I should call again in the hopes of getting another, more capable agent.
Understand this, I am furious because that is my nature, but the sweet old lady who runs the program is upset and frustrated at this problem as well. This issue needs to be resolved ASAP and until it is this community outreach program that feeds the homeless will suffer for it and may eventually need to close it's doors.
This site is accessible using non-comcast mobile data, and using non-comcast site checking sites suck as geopeeker and ionos. The only problems come up when comcast is a point of contact.

2020.10.09 20:36 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 5 - Philadelphia Eagles(1-2-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0)

Philadelphia Eagles (1-2-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0)
It’s that time again for the battle of the Keystone state. The Eagles are looking to build on their first win of the season when they upset the 49ers last week on Sunday Night football, while the Steelers are looking to get back on the field as their game with the Titans was postponed due to the Titans being morons. The game will be a match up between two of the best defensive lines in the NFL this season. Eagles lead the league with 17 sacks, while the Steelers are right on their tail with 15 sacks despite playing one less game. The Eagles patch work offensive line held up last week against the 49ers but they were without their best pass rusher in Nick Bosa. This week, Jordan Mailata and the rest of the line will be tested early and often and will need to hold up to give Carson Wentz time to find his band of rag tag WRs. However, he may get some help this week with the return of Alshon Jeffrey who could be playing his first time since suffering a Lisfranc injury last season. Jeffrey will give Carson something he has been severely missing this season in a big WR who can make contested catches along the sidelines. The Eagles may also see the return of JJAW and Desean Jackson as both have practiced in a limited capacity this week after missing last week’s game due to hamstring injuries. Carson and the Eagles offense will need all the help they can get facing one of the league’s top defenses in a year where they have struggled to get much going in the first four games. On the other side of the ball the Eagles will face one of its toughest tests this season especially Darius Slay who will be following JuJu Smith Schuster. If Slay can shutdown the JuJu the Eagles offense will have a good chance of holding the Steelers in check and give a chance to their offense to win the game. We will see if the Eagles can hold on to the belt of PA this Sunday in their toughest test this season. Go Birds!

Eagles 34 - Steelers 3
The Eagles blocked a Chris Boswell field goal on the opening drive to deny the Steelers three points. The Eagles drew first blood with a Caleb Strugis field goal to make the score 3–0. Early in the 2nd quarter, Rookie Quarterback Carson Wentz threw a 12-yard touchdown to Jordan Matthews to extend their lead to 10-0. The Steelers answered with a Chris Boswell field goal to make it 10-3 which ended up being their only scoring play of the day. Strugis notched another field goal to bring the score to 13–3 at the half. Early in the 2nd Half, Wentz threw his second TD of the day, a 73-yard touchdown to running back Darren Sproles. Following a 3 and out by the Steelers, rookie running back Wendell Smallwood found the endzone for his first career rushing touchdown and it extended the Eagles lead to 27–3. On the Steelers next drive, veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger fumbled the football which the Eagles recovered. The Eagles would add another score on a Kenjon Barner rushing touchdown. The Eagles defense which had shutdown and frustrated the Steelers offense most of the day forced one more turnover to seal the game when Roethlisberger threw an interception to Rodney McLeod. The Eagles added another field goal for a final score of 34-3.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles traveled across the country following an embarrassing tie to the Bengals in week 3. Doug and Carson looked to redeem themselves against a team that was suffering from almost as many injuries as the Eagles. The Eagles struck first with Carson running the ball in on an 11 yard scramble. Doug felt that he needed to dust off his balls and show everyone that he did in fact still have them after pussying out last week, deciding to inexplicably go for 2, but it paid off to put the Eagles up 8-0. The 49ers answered with a score of their own when rookie WR Brandon Aiyuk hurdled Eagles safety Marcus Epps and found the endzone. After halftime the 49ers came out firing and took their first lead of the game with a George Kittle TD. The Eagles answered with a field goal to bring the score to 14-11. After the Nick Mullens fumble the Eagles took advantage as Carson Wentz dropped a dime to Tyler Fulgham for a 42 yard TD pass to give the EAgles a 18-14 lead. On the very next drive Mullens threw his second interception of the game right to Alex Singleton who took it to the house for a pick 6 and put the Eagles up 25-14. On the next possession, Jim Schwartz switched to his shitty sticks defense despite the 49ers putting in their 3rd string QB Beathard. Schwartz gifted Beathard easy throws as he quickly moved the ball down the field for an easy TD. The Eagles recovered an outside kick, but went three and out. Schwartz continued to see the error in his sticks defense as Beathard again moved the ball with ease, but thankfully the Eagles players made some plays breaking up some key passes and bailing out their coach’s poor decisions.
Steelers - Steelers game week 4 was postponed because the Titans are morons.

Stats to Know
Battle of the Defensive Lines
This game will feature two of the top Pressure-generating Defensive Lines. Watt, Dupree, and Tuitt are all in the top 10 DLmen in pressures, with 18, 17, and 17. Meanwhile, the Eagles feature 3 in the top 20. Graham, Jackson, and Cox have netted 15, 14, and 13. Considering Philadelphia's makeshift OL and that QB Wentz has a remarkable 20.0 passer rating under pressure, this could get ugly.
Matchups to Watch
Steelers Offensive Line vs Eagles Defensive Line
As the Eagles defensive line goes so goes the defense. That statement has always been true for the Eagles under Jim Schwartz, but that has never been more emphasized this year given the lack of talent elsewhere on the defense especially at LB. This defensive line has been firing on all cylinders with a league leading 17 sacks through 4 games. This has been especially the last two weeks, helping to limit any potential damages they may take during games. Two weeks ago, Burrow was sacked 8 times; they followed that up with 5 more sacks this past Sunday night. Additionally, Philly pressured Niners starting QB Nick Mullen on 50% of his drop backs, a massive figure. They'll need that juice to carry over this week again and like it did the last time these two teams faced each other 4 years ago. It also must be said the Eagles need their talented defensive line to control the LOS to prohibit any Steelers rushing attack. Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, and Malik Jackson are all off to hot starts on the season. Newbie Javon Hargrave, making his first return trip to Pittsburgh this Sunday, had a slow start missing the first game of the season due to a training camp injury, but he has started to heat up the last two weeks. Derek Barnett had probably his best game one week ago and is looking to build off that as the season continues. If it does, then it'll look like Barnett has taken a long-awaited jump in play. Josh Sweat is starting to prove his own hot start isn't a fluke either. Genard Avery decided to throw his name into the ring last week getting multiple pressures and notching a sack and 5 QB hits against the 49ers Control the LOS and you can control the game. That has to happen again on Sunday if the Eagles want a chance to win.
Steelers bevy of Offensive Skill Position Players vs the Eagles Depleted Secondary
Last week, the Eagles did a great job containing the Niners outside receivers and predictably got obliterated by George Kittle. That last part isn't surprising since Kittle does that to everyone but the Eagles have already shown a total inability to defend TEs and the middle of the field on defense due to being completely devoid at talent at the LB position. Additionally, the Eagles struggle to really cover anyone since they don't have a member of the secondary that can consistently cover like Darius Slay. Granted, Jalen Mills had a decent game last week, but the Steelers offensive weapons are much deeper than the Niners. Dionte Johnson, Juju Smith-Schuster, Chase Claypool, and Eric Ebron will all be very difficult for the Eagles to defend as the game goes along. They each have different skill sets but what they all possess is an ability to consistently get open for Big Ben. We've also seen Juju, Dionte, and Claypool all create big plays after they catch the ball. The Eagles will have to come out with a gameplan to account for this and play disciplined enough to prohibit the big play. There is still a lot of room for error on the back half of this Eagles denese; if they can execute like they did this past Saturday night, that would help limit the potential damage.
Steelers Pass Rush vs The Eagles Revolving Door of Offensive Linemen
If there is one thing the Eagles prioritize more than anything in the draft and in free agency it's building a great offensive line with a lot of depth. This has been a pillar of the organization for over two decades and it has paid off for the Eagles the entire time. Few times in recent history has that philosophy been put to the test and stressed the team like it has so far in 2020. As it stands, the Eagles have, at best, a league-average offensive line and that's largely due to injury as they are currently missing their starting LT, RG, and LG. Sunday has a chance to be the 5th time in 5 weeks the Eagles will have a different starting offensive line combination if Lane Johnson can't go this week. Poor offensive line can cripple an offense. It can derail a passing attack if the offensive line can't keep the offense in a rhythm and keep the QB from being under duress. It forces coaches to give extra attention to the area which takes away from their ability to be creative when they need to leave an extra guy in to block. Additionally, constant OL shuffling and a degradation in talent can hinder a rushing attack since the players on the bottom end of the roster just can't execute at a high level the pillars of the offense. That's a situation the Eagles find themselves in on Sunday against one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL. The Eagles offensive line had their hands full against a Niners line that is still good despite its own major injury issues. At EDGE, the Steelers have a perennial DPOY candidate in TJ Watt to go along with a solid and athletic pass rusher in Bud Dupree. They also have stalwarts in the interior with Cameron Hayward and Stephon Tuitt. Long time NFL veteran Tyson Alualu, former 1st round pick of the Jaguars, has suddenly elevated his game and is off to the best start in his career as well. The defensive front is very disruptive when paired with their LBs who excel in both run support and on blitz in Devin Bush and Vince Williams. Steelers DC Keith Butler is creative with his looks and pressure packages while being blessed without the need to blitz constantly. Even if Lane Johnson starts he won't be 100% and that's a problem for the Eagles. A Lane Johnson at less than 100% is still better than most NFL tackles but it'll likely be taxing to the Eagles since the depth of talent the Steelers have across their defensive line. The Eagles are down to mostly nobodies on offense and really need to get creative to string together some plays to have a modestly effective offense. Even when Wentz is on his A-game, offensive execution will still require near 100% effectiveness just to have a chance. This is perhaps one of the biggest OL/DL mismatches in the NFL in week 5 and one the Eagles don't figure to have a ton of success. If they are able to control the line of scrimmage on offense more successfully than previous Steelers opponents, that would go a long way in pulling out a win.

The Eagles are off to their worst start since 1999 when Eagles coach Doug Pederson was the starting QB for the Eagles in Andy Reid’s first season; where the Eagles started 0-3 and finished 5-11. The Eagles look to be on a similar trajectory this season with their 0-2-1 start following an embarrassing tie to the Bengals last week. The Eagles have the toughest remaining schedule in the NFL this season and the Eagles look like a bad football team. There really isn’t any other description of this team. They are bad on every level and it starts from the top. The team has played undisciplined and the offensive and defensive play-calling has been atrocious and has lacked identity. It seems like the game-planning this season has been phoned in with the coaches running the same vanilla offense and defense week in and week out and expecting the players to win it for them which they haven’t. Carson Wentz has regressed to the point he is unrecognizable and is making mistakes from his rookie season. His coaches don’t seem interested in helping him with fix those mistakes either as Doug Pederson and Press Taylor have failed to recognize Carson’s breakdowns in his mechanics. Their gameplans have done him no favors either utilizing a large number of 5 and 7 step drops despite having a multitude of injuries on the offensive line and at the wide receiver position. If the Eagles have any hope of salvaging their season they will need to pull out a win on Sunday night football against the 49ers and their strong defense. The 49ers are dealing with some injuries of their own with Bosa and Sherman on the IR on the defensive side and Jimmy G and Mosert most likely missing the game on offense. The San Fran defense is still tough with an impressive defensive line and speed all over the field. If Doug cares about Carson at all he will move the pocket and rely on Miles Sanders on the ground to keep the pass rush honest. On the defensive side, Schwartz will need to continue to mix it up with blitzes like he did against the Bengals, but he will need to pull his out of his ass in the secondary and learn that his CBs should not be playing 8-10 yards off the ball when playing man coverage. If Schwartz does a lot of the same in the secondary it could be a long day because Shanahan’s offense will exploit it and lead to another Eagles loss, this time in Prime Time. The Eagles will need to figure out how to get a win this week, or this streak of 3 straight playoff appearances will come to an end. Go Birds!

Eagles 34 - 49ers 10
The Eagles looked to win their 6th game in a row against the winless San Francisco 49ers. The Eagles got off to a slow start, only leading 3–0 after the first quarter. Late in the second quarter, the Eagles blew the game open. Carson Wentz found tight end Zach Ertz for a 1-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone off of a bootleg pass, and Jalen Mills intercepted rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown. The 49ers appeared to have some life in the third quarter, following a Carson Wentz interception, leading to a Matt Breida 22 yard touchdown reception. However, the Eagles responded, with Wentz connecting with Alshon Jeffery for a 53-yard touchdown, putting the game out of reach. The Eagles went on to win 33–10 and advanced to 7–1 on the season. Despite the win, the Eagles played a sloppy game on a rainy afternoon in Philadelphia.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles welcomed the Cincinnati Bengals to Lincoln Financial Field seeking their first win over Cincinnati since 2000. After a scoreless first quarter, the two teams traded field goals in the second, before the Bengals took a 10-6 lead on a touchdown reception by Tee Higgins. Wentz responded on the ensuing drive, as he threw his 100th career touchdown pass to Greg Ward to put the Eagles in front 13-10 at halftime. After the Eagles added another Jake Elliott field goal, the Bengals reclaimed a one-point lead with Higgins' second touchdown of the afternoon. Cincinnati would pad its lead to seven points with two fourth-quarter field goals. Trailing 23-16 with just over 3 minutes left in regulation, Philadelphia drove down the field to score the game-tying touchdown on a 7-yard run for Wentz. In overtime, both defenses held strong, with neither team being able to get into field goal range until the final drive, when the Eagles got to the Bengals' 41. However, a costly false start on Matt Pryor brought Philadelphia out of field goal range. The Eagles punted the ball, and the game ended on the following play with the Bengals at their own 20. Despite his milestone, Wentz's struggles continued as he also threw two interceptions for the third straight game and finished the game with a 62.8 passer rating. Philadelphia improved to 0-2-1 with the tie, but failed to snap their winless streak against Cincinnati and fell to 0-3-2 in their last five against the Bengals, including an 0-2-1 mark at Lincoln Financial Field. This marked the Eagles' first tie since 2008, which was also against the Bengals.
49ers - The way the San Francisco 49ers played, missing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and a slew of starters wasn't an issue against the woeful and winless New York Giants, who were also missing their best player in Saquan Barkley. 49ers backup Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards and a touchdown and the Niners controlled the ball on offense, took it away on defense and had another easy day on the East Coast in a 36-9 win at MetLife Stadium Sunday. San Francisco scored on seven of its first eight possessions. It would have been all eight but a snap-hold problem led to Gould missing a 55-yarder. He connected from 52, 32 and 26 yards. The Niners' ninth possession ended the game.

Stats to Know
Receiving RBs
What if I told you the Niners have two of the league’s best receiving Running Backs? (Yes, one is hurt). What if I also told you the Eagles’ defenders are presently poop covering RBs against the pass? That about sums it up. Mr. McKinnon should have a fun day.
Matchups to Watch
Carson Wentz
This is the only real battle that matters since it's extremely difficult to win in the NFL with poor QB play. Wentz is among the worst QBs in the league to start the season and it could be a significant amount of time before he changes course. Even the most stalwart Wentz supporters must admit he is also a problem with this team right now. With that said, in order to win this game, and any game moving forward, the Eagles need Carson Wentz to improve. Philly can't use the injury excuse in this particular matchup as the Niners are one of the only teams to be in a similar or worse injury predicament than the Eagles. Even with the injuries, the Niners are able to show up and show out on a weekly basis... They are a great team. Wentz has had issues in all areas pertaining to play. He needs to be more precise, smarter, and more relaxed. This team sucks; it's likely no amount of heroism if going to pull this team from the depths of the league this season. The only thing Carson Wentz can do is his job. He's not responsible for coaching blunders, other injuries, or a GM that can't get anything right. Just get better and when he does, this team can actually be competitive.
Kyle Shanahan and his offensive genius vs Jim Schwartz and the LBs and Safeties
It should be no surprise the Eagles LBs and Safeties struggle in coverage as they did nothing in the offseason to add players that can cover. Plain and simple. This is a defense with a great defensive line, a great CB1, and that's it. They struggle to play consistent run defense now with the mediocre talent in the second and third levels. Kyle Shanahan is one of the most innovative offensive minds in the NFL; if you thought the thumping Sean McVay gave us was painful, wait until we see what's in store from the guy who mentored McVay. Shanahan lives for finding your weakest links in the LB and Safety rooms and exploiting that deficiency mercilessly. Nate Gerry is about to have his worst game ever - and that says something. George Kittle should return for this contest which is a tremendous mismatch that the Niners will exploit. Even the best cover guys in the league struggle against Kittle as he's just a monster. Shanahan will use all kinds of motion, misdirection, and play action that will cause this defense to struggle mightily absent some sort of miracle where they learn to play. I have faith that the defensive line can play well, but as we saw in week 2, all the motion, misdirection, and play action teams use can neutralize a pass rush. Lastly, can Schwartz even put his guys in better positions? Yeah, probably not.
Doug Pederson’s Offensive Game Plan vs the Niners Defense
I tried to have a more nuanced look at this matchup but it is difficult. The Eagles offense is marred by underachieving talent and injuries to start the season. Furthermore, they weren't given enough to work with by the front office but that is an entirely different discussion. Point blank: the offensive coaching staff, led by Doug Pederson, has struggled to consistently put its players in successful situations to start the season. It's not all Doug's fault but a large part of it is. There wasn't a real identity to this offense to start and that's only gotten worse 4 weeks in. This roster isn't going to suddenly improve overnight, if at all this season, so it's up to the coaching staff to help the offense succeed. There are a lot of new cooks involved in creating the offensive game plan but not enough overall direction from the man in charge. The Niners defense has plenty of injuries to key players as well; can they design a function offense built on spare parts to put up a fight? Or will they punt?

2020.09.11 17:32 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 1 - Philadelphia Eagles(0-0) at Washington Football Team (0-0)

Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) at the Washington Football Team
The 2020 Philadelphia Eagles season is the franchise's 88th season in the National Football League and the fifth under head coach Doug Pederson. The Eagles will try to improve on their 9–7 record from 2019 where they made the playoffs, but lost in the NFC Divisional game against the Seattle Seahawks. They will begin that journey Sunday afternoon as they take a trip down 95 to face off against the division rival with a new name Washington Football Team. To go with the name they also have a new coach in Ron Rivera who is looking for a fresh start after spending the last nine years as the Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers. Rivera inherits a defense that has 4 first round picks on the defensive line that will be facing off against an injury riddled offensive line of the Eagles as they will be without starting LT Andre Dillard and starting All-Pro RG Brandon Brooks. The Eagles bought back former LT Jason Peters who will look to protect Carson Wentz’s blind side. IF the Eagles OL is able to give Wentz time, he proved last year against the WTF that he has great chemistry with Jackson who has torched his former team in the past. Defensively Eagles fans will get their first look at their revamped secondary which will include Pro Bowler Darius Slay and Jalen Mills at safety. They will look to keep Terry McLaurin under control as he burnt the Eagles secondary in both games last season with long TDs. If the Eagles can get a lead early, I think their defense should be able to keep Dwayne Haskins under control and force the second year QB into some turnovers. Always fun to start the season vs a division rival and happy to have some football again in these crazy times. Go Birds!

Eagles 37 - Washington Football Team 27
The Eagles looked to keep their playoff hopes alive and and opened up the scoring with a Jake Elliot FG in the first quarter. The lead was short lived as Dwayne Haskins hooked up with Terry McLaurin for a 75 yard touchdown pass. The Eagles went into half-time trailing 10-14, but took back the lead in the 3rd quarter on a Miles Sanders TD reception that put the Eagles up 17-14. The Eagles and Washington Football Team traded TD passes in the 4th quarter before the Washington Football Team regained the league with a pair of Dustin Hopkins FGs put the Washington Football Team's up 24-27. Carson Wentz answered the call leading the Eagles on a four and half minute 75 yard touchdown drive that culminated in a Greg Ward TD reception. The Eagles defense forced a fumble on the ensuing drive which was returned for a TD by Nigel Bradham for a nail in the coffin putting the Eagles up 10 with no time on the clock to give the Eagles the win.

PFF Stats to Know
Play Action Passing
[Threshold = QBs with at least 20% snap count of the QB with the highest snap count of Play Action for the season] In the 2019-2020 season, no QB had a worse completion rate via Play Action than WFT’s Dwayne Haskins at 54.9% and only 2 others had worse such Passer Rating. For comparison, the Eagles’ Carson Wentz was at the top of the bottom 3rd in both metrics. Whereas has Wentz fared near the top of Play Action % of snaps during his NFL tenure and his completion % and Passer Rating have both ranked near the top in each of ‘16-‘18, in 2019 he did not do well in that respect. How Wentz performs in Play Action with injuries at the OL and WR positions, as well as how much the coaching staff will even ask him to turn his back to this particular DL and keep it...I’m not sure.
Matchups to Watch
Washington Defensive Line vs Eagles Offensive Line
NFL battles always start in the trenches and this is perhaps the biggest advantage the WFT has against the Eagles in this Week 1 tilt. Washington always had a formidable front that lead to intriguing battles between the two teams but the addition of Chase Young and the injuries the Eagles have already sustained make this match up concerning for Philly. The Eagles projected Week 1 starting OL prior to the injuries was, from left to right: Dillard, Seumalo, Kelce, Brooks, and Lane Johnson. Now, the Eagles will start: Peters, Seumalo, Kelce, TBD, TBD. Lane Johnson has practiced everyday this week in a limited capacity which makes me believe that he'll start but it's an uneasy feeling knowing he's working his way back from injury too. The logical guess at RG is Matt Pryor, but they've also tried out Nate Herbig in practice. Either way, the Eagles have a massive downgrade at RG with Brandon Brooks out. Fortunately, the Eagles may have accidentally upgraded in the short term with Jason Peters at LT but the depth in the trenches is already spread too thin. The Eagles are lucky to be as deep as they are on the OL given they aren't totally screwed (yet) but the current state of line makes this a very formidable match up for the Football Team (get a damn team name, jerks) to take advantage of. Additionally, they aren't just deep at EDGE, they are deep at DT as well. Payne, Allen, and Ioannidis are very stout and capable of dominating opposing OLs. Washington's roster is very thin but it isn't on the defensive line. They have more than enough ammunition to put the Eagles in difficult situations. This mismatch will force the coaching staff to be creative in their run designs and how they give help to the OL in pass protection.
Washington Secondary vs Eagles Passing Attack
The Eagles much beleaguered WR room went through a mini-makeover in the offseason and a lot of new, young, and fast faces were added to the mix. What they lack in proven talent, outside of DeSean Jackson's return, they make up for in athleticism. One thing Howie Roseman said this offseason was he was frustrated with the lack of speed on the team. It took him a while to understand that athleticism does matter. It's not just that the new group of receivers are fast, but they all have strong overall athletic profiles. But as previously mentioned, this is an unproven group going up against a very weak opposition. WFT brought back Kendall Fuller this offseason, who was a real good jack-of-all-trades player in the secondary for the Chiefs last season. His status for Sunday is questionable given his limited participation this week in practice. Opposite him is former Eagles favorite Ronald Darby. If I'm Doug Pederson, I make it a point to go after him all day. Even when Darby is at his best, which isn't often these days, he has absolutely zero ball skills. Washington may play Fabian Moreau if Fuller can't go, which is another defender the Eagles should target. Jimmy Moreland and Landon Collins are quality players, more so the latter, but they can't hide the deficiencies that should be easily exploitable by the Eagles. Remember, Philly put up over 30 in week 15 last year with less in the WR room than they currently have against a secondary that really isn't better than it was then. If Jalen Reagor is able to go, that would add another dimension to this offense the Eagles have lacked for a long time. If the Eagles can do a good enough job slowing down Washington's front, they are more than capable of picking apart a subpar secondary. And I didn't even talk about Ertz and Goedert! Or Miles Sanders through the air!
Washington Offensive Line vs Eagles Defensive Line
Despite the current injury limitations on the Eagles defensive line, this is a matchup that heavily favors the Eagles. Haskins finished 2019 on a positive note in his last 3 starts prior to his ankle injury; one thing he's never been known for is his pocket ability and ability to avoid taking sacks. Put a statue behind a bad offensive line and you are going to have issues. Trent Williams is now gone having finally forced his way out and his logical replacement, rookie Shaadiq Charles, isn't likely to play in week 1. Wes Martin, their starting left guard, is a below average player himself. The only player on the Washington Football Team's offensive line that is good is Brandon Scherff. While the Eagles aren't 100% on the defensive line, they are one of the few teams in the NFL with likely more talent and depth on their defensive line than the Washington Football Team's. Barnett has been limited in practice and has missed the last few weeks with another injury and his status is questionable while Hargrave is likely to miss a couple games as well. The Eagles still have Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, the return of Malik Jackson, and a lot more to throw at this beleaguered unit. Additionally, this is a defensive front that is always stingy against the run under Jim Schwartz even when the DL isn't at peak health. There are a lot of matchups to exploit and Schwartz has a lot of options to exploit them. For his faults as a coordinator with secondary scheming, Schwartz is a God at maximizing the talents of his pass rushers. Given the current state of the Washington OL and Haskins own difficulties under pressure, this is a juicy match up for Philly.
Washington Passing Attack vs Eagles Pass Defense
Washington is incredibly thin and young at the skill positions but that isn't the sort of thing that has deterred the Eagles from allowing big plays in the past. This is a secondary, and really a pass defense in general, that went through a major shake up this offseason and for good reason. The Eagles defense was pretty average per DVOA which was encouraging given what they had, but they consistently allowed big play after big play in 2019. Opposing WR1s absolutely shredded Philadelphia last season as they were automatic monsters against an overmatched, elementary secondary. Darius Slay and NRC were added to the mix and should provide immediate help to this unit. Avonte Maddox will start at CB2; while this is an iffy move, the additions of Slay and NRC should allow the Eagles to help him out a bunch. The Eagles finally have players that can play in man coverage and one of the best CBs in the league in shadow coverage. Schwartz has admitted that he will allow Slay to shadow receivers but likely not 100% of the time. This makes sense as it should be a matchup-specific thing... this is that time. Furthermore, allowing Slay to shadow receivers will lead to considerable scheme changes on defense as they can't play the coverages they've played the last four years while shadowing receivers. What does this look like and how quickly does it come together? Terry McLaurin is the only real commodity at receiver for Washington and he's a tremendous talent. Even when he was the only real receiving threat last year, he still tore the Eagles apart. Another major change for the Eagles is in the safety room with the departure of Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles added Will Parks to the room but he will miss the first 3 weeks due to injury. They also retained Rodney McLeod; this could be a good thing or bad thing depending on which Rodney shows up. If another year away from knee surgery helps, then he'll be fine. But if last year's version shows up then the Eagles have a big problem. Lastly, the Eagles will be starting Jalen Mills at safety. Apparently, the cure for being a bad cornerback is a position switch to safety despite never playing it in the NFL. All that being said, the middle of the defense is slower and more unknown than it has ever been. LB1 is Nate Gerry. LB2 is Duke Riley. Mills is the new Jenkins. Will Parks is out. Does McLeod have enough left in the tank? Offenses are fast and innovative; the Skins lack a lot of talent on offense but their new offensive scheme could lead to some issues in the middle of the Eagles defense. If I'm Washington, I lean heavily on motions and play action to confuse the middle of the Eagles defense. Get guys who struggle to cover to cover your athletic RBs then take plenty of shots to Terry McLaurin. The Eagles are clearly better at CB than they've been in years but have considerable question marks in the Safety and in the LB rooms as it pertains to pass defense. Better CBs should lead to better pass defense overall but there are matchups to take advantage of. Washington might not be the best team to fully exploit these weaknesses, but they could.

2020.09.11 16:54 Uncr3ativeUsername State officials should disclose vital district-by-district COVID-19 data on schools [editorial]

https://lancasteronline.com/opinion/editorials/state-officials-should-disclose-vital-district-by-district-covid-19-data-on-schools-editorial/article_47f5e374-f3c1-11ea-a99a-cb110fba9942.html
I will paste the entire article here because of the paywall:
LNP LancasterOnline’s Alex Geli reported Wednesday that the Pennsylvania Department of Health will not provide the public with data on COVID-19 cases by school district. “We cannot comment on specific cases or clusters of cases,” Health Department spokesperson Nate Wardle said in an email. Wardle said the Health and Education departments would work closely to ensure that cases are identified and thoroughly investigated. “After public health staff complete the thorough case investigation,” Wardle said, “they will start contact tracing to ensure all those who came in contact, including the school if applicable, and should be notified, are notified.”
To slightly paraphrase one commenter on LNP LancasterOnline, we’re six months into this pandemic and it still feels like we’re flying blind.
That’s so true.
And so frustrating.
Frustrating because some of the blinders being forced upon us are unnecessary and dangerous to public safety.
There is some “fog of war” regarding COVID-19 that we must accept. We don’t know when we’ll have a safe and effective vaccine. Or what all of the long-term effects are for those who test positive for the disease.
But there are areas in which we unnecessarily create an artificial “fog of war” and make our decision-making more challenging than it ought to be amid an ongoing health crisis.
“People need accurate information in order to make sound decisions for their safety and their families’ safety.”
We wrote that in Thursday’s editorial about President Donald Trump’s failure to be honest with the American people about the seriousness of the COVID-19 threat.
It is a statement that applies to many elected officials and institutions.
We need accurate information on COVID-19 from the Trump administration.
And from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
And from our local health care systems.
And — as we keep urging — from the administration of Gov. Tom Wolf and the state Department of Health.
Yet we learned this week of another artificial roadblock to seeing COVID-19 data in Pennsylvania. As LNP LancasterOnline’s Geli summarized Wednesday: “The state is not releasing the number of cases by school district in Pennsylvania, leaving each school district to decide whether the community should know about a student or employee testing positive for COVID-19, and schools might not be notified in some cases.”
That last part is especially maddening: Schools might not be notified in some cases.
We went through the debate over how schools should educate students this fall. Whether it should be fully in person, the hybrid model or fully remote. We agreed on these points, at least: There is no perfect solution, and most people are doing the best they can during incredibly trying times.
But for state health officials to keep working actively against the needs of communities when it comes to COVID-19 transparency is unconscionable. It represents a failure to serve local administrators, educators and parents — and, most of all, schoolchildren.
The reason cited by state officials will sound like a broken record. (Something is broken, anyway.)
The state, according to Geli, is citing 1955’s Disease Prevention and Control Act, which, under its interpretation, gives the health department broad authority to keep reports of contagious diseases confidential. It was originally written to protect individual privacy when syphilis was a wider problem in the commonwealth.
Now the law is being abused.
April Hutcheson, a state Department of Health spokesperson, explained to Geli that the decision not to release school district data was partially out of concern that, in districts with a small number of cases, it might be easy to identify those who are infected.
We find that argument to be incredibly weak. A key purpose of the 1955 law was to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. And it explicitly stated that the release of information toward achieving that purpose is an exception to the nondisclosure language. It is reasonable, urgent in fact, to come to the conclusion that the act demands greater disclosure, not less.
Melissa Melewsky, media law counsel for the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, essentially agrees.
"Raw numbers, such as a total number of cases in a particular school district, should be provided as soon as possible,” Melewsky told Geli in an email. “Districtwide data does not identify specific cases or clusters of cases.”
Further, Melewsky said greater transparency by the state would help to “discourage the spread of misinformation.”
Fighting misinformation has, frustratingly, been half the battle during this health crisis. Transparency is vital. Especially when it involves parents who are concerned about their children and educators who must worry 24/7 about their own health and families.
Last month, we criticized the state over its failure to provide requested information about the state’s dealings with nursing homes, which have been at the deadly epicenter of the pandemic in Pennsylvania.
Again, it’s a public safety issue.
And again, state officials pointed to the 1955 law as their shield.
Terry Mutchler, who was the founding director of Pennsylvania’s Office of Open Records, sees a flaw in that reasoning.
“I think a lot of people read the statute, see the word confidential, and call it a day,” Mutchler told Spotlight PA last month. “But based on the actual language of the law itself, coupled with previous case law, there is substantial room for the department to err on the side of transparency.”
That approach should apply to district-by-district data on COVID-19, too.
The state is erring there, and it's not on the side of transparency.
We should demand — in the name of school safety — more openness.
Accurate and timely information is everything right now.

2020.08.11 01:01 assessment_bot [ Non-Fatal ] [ 07/20/2020 ] Cessna 182, Pottstown/ PA

On July 20, 2020, about 2129 eastern daylight time, a Cessna 182A, N4092D, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Pottstown, Pennsylvania. The pilot, pilot-rated passenger, and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.
According to the pilot, during the flight the pilot-rated passenger was being "checked out" and when the accident occurred, was only working the radios, and communicating with ATC.
Earlier on the day of the accident, the pilot and pilot rated passenger had departed Smoketown Airport (N37), Smoketown, Pennsylvania then flew to Brandywine Regional Airport (OQN), West Chester, Pennsylvania to pick up a passenger. While there, they purchased 7.8 gallons of 100 LL aviation gasoline (fuel). After adding the fuel to the airplane, they boarded the passenger and departed for Portsmouth International Airport at Pease (PSM), Portsmouth, New Hampshire. After arriving at PSM, they purchased another 20 gallons of fuel.
On July 21, 2020, during an interview with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspectors, the pilot advised that they had departed PSM with 55 gallons of fuel and while flying direct to N37, began to experience a gradual, continuous loss of engine power, accompanied by a drop in manifold pressure and engine rpm. When they were 22.1 miles from N37, the pilot richened the mixture thinking he had excessively leaned it, and applied carburetor heat to ensure there was no accumulation of carburetor ice, yet the power loss continued. He then declared an inflight emergency, descended from 4,500 feet msl to 3,700 feet msl in one minute, and determined he would not be able to make any of the surrounding airports, so decided to land on U.S. Route 422 (Benjamin Franklin Highway). He stated the engine would only achieve 1,200 rpm at touchdown. When asked how long the "gradual" power loss happened, he stated it began 5-10 minutes before touchdown. When asked if there were any accompanying gauge anomalies, he stated none. When asked about fuel quantity indication, he stated it was normal.
On July 24, 2020, during a telephone conversation with an NTSB investigator (contrary to what he advised the FAA) the pilot advised that when they were at 4,500 feet and approaching the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area, the engine began to "sputter". The power had been set at 22" of manifold pressure and 2,300 rpm, then it "spiked" to 2,600 rpm, and then dropped back down to 2,300 rpm. He tried to "troubleshoot" using the mixture control, but the rpm and manifold pressure continued dropping. Applying carburetor heat had no effect. When this occurred, the pilot-rated passenger declared an emergency with air traffic control.
An NTSB Form 6120.1 Pilot/Operator Incident Accident Report dated July 27, 2020, was provided to the NTSB by the pilot. In the report, the pilot stated (conflicting with what he advised during the telephone conversation with the NTSB) that while enroute, around 2120, the aircraft lost power to the engine. The rpm indicated between 1200 to 1400 rpm, while the manifold pressure was between 12 and 13 inches. An emergency was declared with Harrisburg approach and an emergency checklist was implemented to troubleshoot the loss of power. With no power, he was forced to make an emergency landing on Route 422 due to it being the best illuminated. Additionally, he stated that "We believe this could've been prevented with better maintenance of the aircraft. Loss of power cause is yet to be determined."
Examination of the accident site by the Exeter Township Police Department, revealed that the airplane had touched down traveling westbound on U.S. Route 422. During the landing rollout, the airplane struck the right rear side of one automobile, and the left rear fender of another automobile. Neither driver was injured. The airplane came to rest in the left lane just prior to the intersection of Daniel Boone Road, with both wings blocking all lanes of traffic. No fuel from the airplane was observed on the roadway, and the airplane displayed damage on its left side.
After the owner was given permission by the NTSB to remove the airplane from the roadway, the wings were removed for transport, and the airplane was transported to N37, where the wreckage was examined by an FAA inspector. Since the wings had been removed to transport the airplane, the inspector could not check the remaining fuel quantity. However, the chief pilot of Skydive Lancaster, which used the airplane for its skydiving (parachuting) operation, advised the FAA that when he was on-scene during the wing removal, that 5 to 6 total gallons of fuel was removed from the left wing fuel tank, and that the right wing fuel tank was empty. The FAA inspector also received a statement from the mechanic who had removed the wings for transport, where he stated that he estimated 4 to 5 gallons were removed from the left wing, and the right tank was dry. A visual examination of both wings by the FAA inspector, also revealed the left wing fuel tank feed hose displayed dampness, and there was visible staining consistent with the blue dye used in 100LL aviation gasoline around the area where the wing was de-mated for transport. The right wing hose however was dry, and no staining was present.
Further examination revealed visible wing damage primarily to both outboard leading edges and tip caps, with minor denting of the leading edge farther inboard. Damage was also noted on the left horizontal stabilizer leading edge; however, no wing or stabilizer spars were visibly damaged. No primary flight controls appeared to be damaged. Substantial damage to the fuselage structure was discovered surrounding the left cabin door and main landing gear box area, with deformed skin from the left side of the wing carry-through around the bottom of the fuselage to the right main landing gear box area. This included deformation of the left side cabin floor and supporting structure. The left cabin door, which was separated from the fuselage also displayed, a broken lower hinge, and deformation of the aft lower corner which was indicative of the fuselage having deformation in that area. During the examination, it was also discovered that during the recovery, the fuselage attachment for the left wing strut had been cut due to the bolt not being able to be removed. Examination of the wing end attachment bolt threads indicated that they had gouged the fitting during removal, which was suggestive of it having to be removed under strain.
Due to the wings being previously removed, the fuel selector was in the "BOTH OFF" position. The fuel strainer was clean, full of fuel and contained no water. The fuel was consistent with 100LL aviation gasoline. The oil filter was removed, cut open, and inspected for metallic particles with none noted. The oil level was at the correct level and no discrepancies were noted with the oil's condition. The air filter was removed and found to be serviceable, and the carburetor throat was clear of obstructions. The throttle, mixture, and carburetor heat controls were checked for continuity with no discrepancies noted. The spark plugs were removed and both magnetos checked for operation with no discrepancies noted. A thumb compression check of all 6 cylinders was accomplished and all cylinders appear to have good compression. A 1-quart can was obtained and attached to the right wing fuel pick-up so the engine could be run. Two engine runs were then performed. During the second engine run, the rpm was increased to more than 2,400 rpm, and no anomalies were noted. All indications were found to be normal.
A review of the airplane, engine, and propeller logbooks revealed no maintenance issues, and all inspections were up-to-date.
Review of the Cessna 182A Owner's Manual indicated that fuel was supplied to the engine from two rubberized bladder type fuel cells (fuel tanks). Unlike newer designs, each fuel cell, had a single fuel line located in the aft inboard section of the fuel cell. Fuel would flow via gravity from each of these fuel lines through the fuel selector valve, and fuel strainer, to the carburetor. The manual stated that that there were 1.5 gallons of unusable fuel per fuel tank (3 gallons) and that, when not in level flight, there was an additional 3.5 gallons of unusable fuel per fuel tank (10 gallons).
On July 28, 2020, a written statement provided to the NTSB by the chief pilot revealed that when he talked with the pilot after the accident, the pilot informed him that they had requested 10 gallons of fuel per side in PSM. When the chief pilot asked him if they dipped the tanks (measured them with a fuel quantity stick), the pilot told him that he did not remember. When the chief pilot asked him how much fuel he had when he left PSM, he gave him estimates based on the fuel used on the installed engine data monitor. When the chief pilot asked him why he didn't top off the tanks he began to tell him how expensive fuel was in PSM, but moments later told him he made the wrong decision and should have topped the tanks.
The airplane's engine data monitor was retained by the NTSB for download.

2020.08.10 23:15 Fedorce Wife and I are thinking of moving here in the next 5 years or so.

Hi everybody, my wife and I currently live in Lancaster PA and are really getting tired of the area. The house we’re in is over a hundred years old and seems like it always needs some sort of work done. The taxes are kind of insane. And my wife is originally from the Sarasota area, so with both our boys going to be out of high school in the next year, we’re definitely looking to get out.
I currently work as a sterile processing tech at our local hospital, and have done so for the past 11 years. My wife does data entry/merchandising for Nielsen. I’m 42, she’s 43. Both pretty liberal, but keep to ourselves for the most part.
Based on that info, what do you all think? Is this the right place? The prices on some of the houses we’ve been looking at are insane(in comparison to the Lancaster area). And if you don’t think Ocala would be a good choice, what area would you suggest?

2020.07.22 15:41 tadisc A testament to the growth of the sport

For the last 4 years I have TD'd a PDGA league in Lancaster, PA at one of our courses (Ship Rock DGC). Its one of the harder & longer courses in the area so beginners are sometimes hesitant to show up. Still, over the last four years the league average has grown significantly. Here is the data I put together:
2017: 7 weeks averaging about 14 players across 6 divisions 2018: 8 weeks averaging about 26 players across 3 divisions 2019: 7 weeks averaging about 40 players across 3 divisions 2020: 4 weeks in so far, averaging about 56 players across 5 divisions
We had the great opportunity to be a part of Am Worlds last year and make some big course upgrades which really helped the course get into good shape. But regardless, I've been stunned this year that we have had such an immense turnout. Last night we had 64 players! To essentially be getting a C Tier's worth of players every week on a weeknight is incredible. I love seeing the sport grow like this and certainly hope its growing this much in your area as well!

2020.07.09 08:03 Justwonderinif The Keepers Timeline III

<
January 4-7, 1970
  • According to Abbie: City report saying body of Sister Cathy was found is dated 8:30Am on January 6, even though the body was found on January 3. At that point the Baltimore City missing person case was closed. The case became a homicide case handled by separate police department, Baltimore County homicide since Cathy's body was found in the county.
  • Police concentrated on people close to Cathy and on Gerry Koob in particular, although he had an alibi. Koob was questioned at some point between January 4 and January 7.
  • Bud Roemer told Nugent that they made a decision to "put the head on" Koob and asked Koob repeatedly about the nature of his relationship with Cathy. Roemer was especially interested in why Russell called Koob, not the police. Koob said he and Cathy had a platonic friendship -- until Roemer visited Koob at Manresa and found the letter. (Koob said her offered it willingly.) After Roemer read the letter, Koob admitted to Roemer that he and Cathy had a sexual relationship.
    • In 1994, Koob told The Sun that he submitted without protest to police interrogations and took two polygraph tests. Childs says that Koob and McKeon passed the polygraph test about where they were, but no one witnessed them returning to either Annapolis or Beltsville.
    • “I did everything they asked me to because I wanted them to get past the idea that it was someone who knew her,” Mr. Koob said. Sister Catherine was such a gentle person that she wouldn’t have resisted an attack, he said. “She wouldn’t have struggled. She’d have been like a bird, frozen.” (In The Keepers Koob said that an investigator (Bannon?) showed him Cathy's vagina wrapped in paper. Detectives deny that would have happened.
    • Mr. McKeon told The Sun that he confirmed Koob’s account of his whereabouts the evening of the slaying -- that he and the Koob had met for dinner and a movie. He said they had just returned to the Manresa retreat when Sister Russell’s call came in. (But in 1969, McKeon told police that he was at the Seminary in Beltsville when he received the call about Cathy being missing.)
    • “I just happened to be there when she called. Gerry did not leave my sight that night. I was his alibi. I took the polygraph test,” McKeon said.
    • Some former detectives and commanders still feel that their investigation was on the right track and was short-circuited by church officials. A major impediment, said three retired police investigators and a commander -- including a lieutenant and a senior detective sergeant in the city homicide unit -- was the interference or lack of cooperation by the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
    • Harry Bannon, a detective sergeant and one of the city’s top homicide investigators, said he was forced to end his interrogation of Koob prematurely because of intervention from the church. Bannon said: The archdiocese sent a couple of priests who were lawyers. The priests went to [Baltimore City Police Commissioner Donald] Pomerleau, and wanted to know why we were holding Koob. We had more questioning to do, but we were ordered to charge Koob or let him go. We were absolutely certain we were going in the right direction. … If [Koob] didn’t do it, he knew who did. We were all very aware of the potential for scandal because of everything that was going on inside the Catholic Church between priests and nuns. In fact, we were hoping someone would step forward who had heard the murderer’s confession. We were disappointed we didn’t close the investigation. She was really a popular nun, but going into court in this murder would have shook the church to its foundations.
    • “The church lawyers stepped in and they talked to the higher-ups at the police department. And we were told, ‘Either charge Koob with a crime or let him go. Stop harassing him,’” said Bannon, who died in 2009. “After that, we had to break away from him. And that was a shame, because I’m sure Koob knew more than he was telling.”
    • Another former investigator said: The word came down from Detective Inspector [Julian I. Forrest] to charge Koob or release him. I thought Koob was a very good suspect... just from my knowledge of the relationship between the two and the letters between them.
    • Who the priest-lawyers were and where they came from remains a mystery. Koob denied making any request for intervention. As a Jesuit, he said, he had no contact with the archdiocese and did not seek any assistance from superiors in his own order.
  • Cathy's sister Marilyn and mother went to the apartment after Cathy's body was found. They wanted to gather Cathy's things, but Russell was out of it, and couldn't help them.
Tuesday, January 6, 1970
Thursday, January 8, 1970
  • Since the Baltimore Sun was on strike, the discover of Cathy's body was covered by The Arbutus Times The article mentions two suspects who were just questioned extensively. Presumably those two people are Gerry Koob and "Pete" McKeon.
Friday, January 9, 1970
Winter, 1970
  • Despite months of investigation by Baltimore and Baltimore County homicide detectives, the killer of the popular, Cathy was never found, and the motive for the slaying remains unclear. Over the years, the thick case file lay dormant in county police headquarters in Towson.
  • The slaying remains particularly puzzling because some evidence points to a street robbery turned deadly, and other evidence points to a killer who knew Cathy or was at least familiar with her activities.
  • The crime was also set against a backdrop of rebellion against authority that was sweeping the country as it struggled with the Vietnam War and of change that was gripping the Catholic Church in the wake of the Second Vatican Council.
  • 1970-1977: According to a timeline provided by Baltimore County Police, the Cathy Cesnik case was extremely active during this period: "Detectives conduct numerous interviews and polygraphs. Physical evidence from the scene is collected and preserved; relatively little physical evidence is found at the crime scene. Because of the poor condition of the body, detectives are unable to determine if Sister Cesnik had been sexually assaulted."
  • Some Baltimore County investigators said they ran up against roadblocks like the one original investigators experienced when trying to question Koob. “We never got any cooperation from the church,” said former Maj. Leroy Duggan, who was head of the county’s major case unit. Mr. Duggan said it was as if the church was operating “a judge’s gag order.”
    • Another former ranking Baltimore County commander, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said his superior told him to read and destroy some supplementary reports. “There was stuff in there the church wouldn’t like,” the former policeman said, adding that he cannot remember details of those reports with absolute certainty today.
    • Mr. Blaul, the archdiocesan spokesman, described the investigators’ assertions as “callous and untrue.” He said Bishop P. Francis Murphy, who was secretary for the late Cardinal Lawrence Shehan, then archbishop, “categorically denies that Cardinal Shehan would have authorized the archdiocese to dispatch priests to interfere with an investigation.”
    • Chief Gambrill does not recall the kind of interference on the part of the archdiocese that other city and county detectives have described. “But I was on the forensic side of the investigation,” he said, and would not necessarily have been aware of such pressure.
Spring, 1970
  • April 13: Maskell's 31st birthday.
  • Towards the end of Teresa Lancaster's sophomore year, she began hanging out at the Boy's School (Gibbons) Coffee House. Lancaster said she was trying to be a hippie and didn't want to be a nerd anymore. Teresa's parents go through her things and find a pot pipe. They were hysterical. Teresa went to Maskell's office and thought he would help her. Maskell took off all her clothes and fondled her. Maskell smooth-talked Teresa's parents.
    • Lancaster said that when she was a junior in 1970, she went to Maskell’s office to talk to him about some problems at home. Her parents had found a marijuana joint in her bag, she said, and they didn’t approve of the long-haired boy she was dating. It was the middle of the school day, and Maskell invited her into his office and shut the door behind her. He then proceeded to strip her clothes off and forced her to sit on his lap, naked. He told her he was touching her in a “godly manner.”
    • “He said, ‘I’m not supposed to do this, but I find that I can really help people when I have physical contact,’” Lancaster recalled. “I was in total shock.”
    • Often, the girls didn’t realize they were being raped and assaulted until months or years later.Lancaster believed for a short time that she was in a romantic relationship with Maskell. Sometimes he would play Irish music while he was with her, “almost like it was a sick date,” Lancaster said. “There was about a month or so when I actually thought he loved me. ... If there’s some kind of love there, then there’s sense to all this. When I found out other people were going in there, I wondered if he loved all of them, too.”
    • When she started to realize the true nature of the relationship, Lancaster never fought back or told anyone, she said, because Maskell threatened to have her expelled for drugs and sent to the Montrose School for Girls, a dreaded juvenile facility in Reisterstown, Maryland. Once or twice, she said, he smacked her around and showed her the loaded handgun he kept in his desk at school. “He let me know that I either went along with whatever he wanted to do, or it was gonna be worse than I could ever imagine,” Lancaster said.

  • Jean's Senior Picture
  • September: Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) picnic in September of 1970, soon after she began attending the high school, Donna Wallis VonDenBosch (14) was raped by Neil Magnus and Joseph Maskell.
    • Father Magnus, who also taught at the school, appeared at the picnic in the passenger seat of a police car. I was given a drink that must have had drugs in it, because I became weak and dizzy. Then I was called over to the police car, and I saw Father Magnus sitting in it. He got out and came over to me and started taking my pants down. Then he put his knee between my legs and forced them apart and began raping me. Meanwhile, a second priest – Father [A.] Joseph Maskell, who had been my parish priest before becoming the chaplain at Keough High School and whom I’d known since the age of 12 – stood there looking on as Father Magnus raped me. And then Father Maskell decided to take his turn, and he raped me.
    • Two weeks after the rape at the CYO picnic, Maskell, summoned Donna to his office at Keough: He said he wanted to give me some tests, and he started by having me sit on his lap. Then he told me: ‘You don’t know how to love, and I’m going to show you.’ He started taking my clothes off, after that.
    • He raped me, and this pattern continued throughout my next three and a half years at Keough. He would call me to his office, and I dreaded those calls. It was a nightmare that happened again and again. Sometimes, when I go into his office, I’m raped. Sometimes he puts a gun in my mouth and warns me that if I tell anybody what is going on, he will kill my parents.
    • What could I do? I was terrified all the time. Going to school each day was agony. I used to try to hide from him under stairwells and anywhere else I could hide. I didn’t dare say anything about the rapes. I thought he would kill my parents! One time a Baltimore City policeman joined us . . . and I saw him pay the priest some money. And then the policeman raped me. By that point, I didn’t care if I lived anymore.
    • When Maskell spotted a girl who seemed troubled or was engaged in bad behavior, he would start calling her out of class over the loudspeaker for “therapy” in his office. “I would be in class, and it could be any time. I’d hear my name over the loudspeaker, ‘Report to my office now,’ and I would have to report to Maskell,” said Donna VonDenBosch, 58. “I remember being in class, just crying, ‘Don’t make me go, don’t make me go!’ And the teacher pulled me out in the hall and said, ‘We all know he’s a weirdo, but you have to go.’”
    • Several of the women who spoke to The Huffington Post about Maskell’s abuse described the priest setting up what amounted to a full-on brothel. Wehner said that during her senior year, Maskell began driving her to St. Clement Church, where he preached, after school, and that a string of men abused her in his office there. She does not know who the men were, but they referred to each other by generic names — Brother Ed, Brother Ted and Brother Bob. She said some of the men gave Maskell money in exchange for the abuse. “He was prostituting us,” Wehner said.
    • To keep Wehner quiet, Maskell reinforced the idea that she was participating in the sex acts of her own accord. He referred to the abuse as Wehner’s “extracurricular activities” and the men as her “dates.” She says the priest once pressed his unloaded handgun into her temple, pulled the trigger, and warned her that her father, a policeman, would do the same thing but with bullets in the gun if he found out she had been “whoring around” with older men.
    • Lancaster, Wehner and VonDenBosch all recall uniformed police officers participating in the abuse, both in Maskell’s office and outside of school. Two more former Keough students and a third woman who attended St. Clement Church said in interviews with The Huffington Post that Maskell abused them as teenagers, often with other men. “I remember the back door light coming through and a policeman wearing dark pants, a white shirt and a badge coming in the back door,” said VonDenBosch, who is studying to be a nurse practitioner in Reading, Pennsylvania. She said she felt unusually groggy that day. She woke up in Maskell’s office in the afternoon after having been there for hours, and her shirt was buttoned up differently than she had buttoned it that morning.
    • Wehner said Maskell would stand by the door and act like he was protecting her from being caught. One time, Wehner says, he became angry at her for acting scared in front of the men; she was supposed to act like she was having consensual sex with them. “He pushed my face into a mirror and he said, ‘You look at who the whore is in the room. Don’t ever act like you’re afraid,’” she recalled.
  • October: Margaret and Ed separate prior to getting a divorce. (Just before the twin's first birthday.)
  • October 31: (Halloween): Teresa and her friend are having a sleep over when Maskell calls and says he is going to pick up the girls for a Halloween night out.

  • Fall: Maskell victim Teresa Lancaster begins her senior year. Maskell victim Donna Wallis VonDenBosch starts her sophomore year.
  • October: Ed is going around Rock Glen Middle School (now West Baltimore Middle School) trying to lure teen girls. He is driving a stolen car from British Imports in Towson. The school is across the street from the Carriage House apartments. Margaret calls the police as Ed had called her the day before saying he was driving a stolen car from British Imports in Towson.
  • November 8: Edgar is arrested for driving a stolen car and trying to lure teen girls at Rock Glen Middle School. (Charged November 9?)
  • November 16: Maskell takes Teresa Lancaster to a gynecologist, Dr. Richter. Richter prescribes douches, three times a week. Maskell rapes Teresa.
    • The women recall that Maskell had a gynecologist friend, Dr. Richter, who would examine them to make sure they weren’t pregnant. Lancaster claims Maskell took her to see Richter for a pregnancy test and then raped her on the table while Richter performed a breast exam.
    • Fisher, the auto repair shop owner, said Maskell boasted about taking high school girls to the gynecologist when he dropped his car off at the shop in the afternoons. “He would say, ‘Me and the doctor, we take them back and we give them exams and check them,’” said Fisher. “There’s no question he was always involved with the exams — that he made clear.”
    • Richter, who died in 2006, denied having abused the girls in an interview with the Baltimore Sun during the court battle over the 1994 lawsuit, but he admitted that he may have let Maskell into the room during their pelvic exams. “It’s possible he may have been in the examining room, in the absence of parents, I don’t know, to calm the girl,” Richter said. “It’s very possible he might have come in the examining room. She was 16. She probably had a good deal of faith in him.”
    • Maskell’s trips to the gynecologist reflected a fixation with the practice. Lancaster said he liked to perform pelvic exams on the altar of the school chapel and administer vaginal douches, enemas and anal suppositories in the bathroom of his office and in the rectory. Multiple other girls also said they were on the receiving end of the mock gynecological exams and enemas. It was a way to establish further authority over the girls — the creation of a doctor-patient relationship — while acting out whatever fetish inspired the abuse.
    • Later, Maskell administers the douches to Teresa in the bathroom in his office.
    • Maskell tells Teresa's parents she is schizophrenic and gets a doctor to prescribe thorazine for Teresa.

  • *The women rarely fought back, because they were terrified of Maskell. VonDenBosch said she gathered the courage to struggle once, during her senior year, and it did not go well. “I thought, he isn’t gonna kill me and have blood all over his floor and have to explain that. So I took my pocketbook and started hitting him,” she said.
    • VonDenBosch threatened to report Maskell, and he responded by putting the barrel of his gun in her mouth. “He said, ‘You’re a troublemaker. You’re trash. Nobody would ever believe you.’ He said, ‘Look at my degree. I went to school at Johns Hopkins.’”
    • She decided it wasn’t worth the risk to report Maskell to authorities, and she became suicidal in high school. But her classmates suspected what was going on. “There was a group of girls known as Maskell’s girls,” she said. “That’s what my friends would call me, one of Maskell’s girls.”

Edgar said he knew who had Cathy's rosary, and had seen the black Rosary case with Cathy's name on it. In the news clip, audio from the phone call was played. (Jerry Turner died in 1987). Edgar says it was his voice, and he called Jerry Turner. But in 2015, Edgar says he made it up, and didn't see the rosary or the case.
    • Note: Does anyone know when Edgar was released from the Psychiatric Hospital? If Edgar made this call soon after getting out, that's meaningful.

    • "I could tell by the arch of his back that he was personally feeling the suffering that was in front of him," remembers Chaplain Robert K. Shaffer. "That woman was dying and Joe knew it."
    • Tired and distressed by what they'd witnessed at the crash, Shaffer and Maskell left the scene around 11 p.m. Shaffer, a Protestant, went home to his wife of 36 years. As a Catholic, however, Maskell had long ago forsaken any such comfort.

1992
  • January 19: Donald Pomerleau, the police commissioner who halted the Koob interrogation passes away.
  • February: Jean said she was about 38 years old, and just finishing up a spiritual directing program, and she and her husband were looking to buy a new house. The real estate agent was a Keogh classmate who prompted Jean to take a look at why she was resistant to going to reunions. Jean would pray for an hour and a half every day, and remembered that Magnus was masturbating in the first confessional.
    • Jean finds Maskell's picture next to Magnus in her 1971 yearbook and starts to remember the rapes. Jean's memories came back to her between February and April, 1992. Jean says the rapes started when she was 14. Jean's therapy did not include hypnosis or drug-induced memory recall.
    • She started to remember the sexual abuse in bits and pieces, beginning in 1992 when she saw side-by-side pictures of Maskell and the school’s director of religious services, Father Neil Magnus, in her high school yearbook. “My whole body shook,” Wehner said. “I knew.” The pictures stirred up dark and painful memories, she said, and the details slowly started to come back to her.
    • Jean told her husband and sister about the memories. Jean stops going to church. In the Spring of 1992, a series of new images convinced Jean she'd been sexually abused by others, as well. Jean says she never remembered things when she was with therapists, that she came to the memories on her own.
  • April 13: Maskell's 53rd birthday. Maskell serves at Holy Cross from 1982 to 1992.
  • June: Jean, now a 38-year-old mother of two, tells her pastor, Art Valenzano, about the rapes. Jean learns that Magnus is dead and Maskell is a pastor at Holy Cross. Art Valenzano contacted the archdiocese in late June in search of "an apology and some spiritual help."
    • Jean’s pastor Art Valenzano wanted her to talk to Rick Woy, an Archdiocese official who was one step below Archbishop Keeler. Rick Woy apparently lied to Jean and told her that they’d never had a complaint against Maskell but that he believed her story. Woy told Jean that they had to get their ducks in a row or Maskell would “slip through their fingers.”
    • At Jean’s second meeting with Rick Woy, he had the archdiocese lawyer with him. The lawyer, Kathy Hoskins, suggested that Jean get a lawyer in case Maskell sued her. The church helped Jean find attorney Steve Tully, and the church was paying Steve’s fee.
  • October: Maskell is summoned downtown to Baltimore's archdiocesan headquarters. Two diocesan officials, two attorneys and the archbishop William H. Keeler were seated at a round table. They told Maskell that a former student of Archbishop Keough High School, where Maskell had served between 1967 and 1975, was accusing him of having sexually abused her some 20 years earlier. Maskell denies the allegations, which are investigated by city police.
    • Church-hired private investigators had since failed to corroborate Jean's allegations; nonetheless, officials wanted to confront the 53-year-old priest directly. But Maskell professed his innocence. He denied ever abusing anybody, and, according to a family member, even offered to take a lie detector test. The archdiocese, says this family source, countered with more restrictive choices: Either check in to a Connecticut psychiatric facility, or step down from the pulpit. "Go to Connecticut," said Keeler.
    • Escorted back to Holy Cross, Maskell is given just hours to pack a bag and leave the rectory. His disappearance from Baltimore was cloaked in secrecy; even fellow priests were denied details. Maskell's mother learned something was wrong only after receiving phone calls asking the whereabouts of her son. Maskell believes the emerging scandal hastened his mother’s death months later.
    • Maskell, pastor of Holy Cross Church in South Baltimore, was "temporarily removed" from his position by the Archdiocese of Baltimore following accusations of sexual misconduct, five months after Wehner reported him.
    • Maskell sent to the psychiatric hospital, “Institute of Living,” located in Hartford, Connecticut.
    • Malooly statement: In 1992, I was first made aware of the accusations of sexual abuse of minors by Joseph Maskell. At that time, the adult survivor and her attorney were urged to report the abuse to civil authorities, and the survivor was offered counseling assistance. Maskell was removed from ministry and referred for evaluation and treatment with full disclosure to the facility as to the reason for the treatment.
    • Maskell “was referred for evaluation and treatment over the next several months,” Caine said. “During that time, the Archdiocese attempted to corroborate the allegation, which Maskell denied, by seeking out any additional victims on its own and through the attorney representing the individuals who initially came forward. After months of trying unsuccessfully to corroborate the allegation, the Archdiocese returned Maskell to ministry.”

  • Spring: Cathy Cesnik finishes her freshman year at St. Augustine High School.
  • Summer: (Paraphrased from Patrick Forestell's 2015 comment): Anthony "Joe" Maskell was a teenager attending St. Mary's Seminary in Roland Park (Roland Ave). He and his friend, fellow pedophile William Simms, were both teenage camp counselors at then Saint Martin's Camp in Love Point, MD (Kent County); a summer camp for children from the St. Martin's Parish on Fulton Ave. in Baltimore. A St. Mary Seminary counselor told me years later that he counseled Maskell (in 1957) and Maskell had problems. Yet Maskell and Simms were allowed to become ordained, and they both inflicted harm on numerous children under the protection of the Arch Diocese of Baltimore. Maskell used his cognitive superior IQ and manipulation to get what he wanted. At Saint Martin's Camp in 1957 William Simms was playing strip poker with the children. I was 11-years old, and a young, innocent child. As I walked by the cabin I heard the laughter from peers while Simms played strip poker with the children. Maskell was outside the cabin and lured me into the open area shower where he assaulted me. Following the abuse I asked someone who that man was and he answered a "student priest." Years later I learned that the student was Maskell. I mention all this to show the hypocrisy of the Archdiocese of Baltimore for teaching theology to the masses while allowing monsters to exhibit evil deeds on numerous children over decades.

When he tried seminary again, after high school, he liked it fine, and reveled in the privileges that came with being a third-year sacristan, which included free social time after mass while the congregation prayed. The perk seemed to appeal to his ego. "He used to say with a smile, 'We're sacristans. It is our place to be back here,"' recalls long-time friend and fellow seminarian William Kern.

  • Fall: Keough opens: As enrollment at all Catholic high schools increased, by the mid-1960s it became evident a new school was needed on the southwest side of the city. The School Sisters of Notre Dame responded to this need, and in 1965, Sr. Mary Virginia Connolly became the founding principal of Archbishop Keough High School. The school was built on 30 acres of land on Caton Avenue, and was structured as an archdiocesan high school. Archbishop Keough High added one grade a year; the first commencement took place in June 1969. The school flourished; in 1987, it was named an exemplary school by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Cathy Cesnik began her teaching career at Archbishop Keough High School on Caton Avenue (renamed Seton-Keough) when the school opened its doors in 1965. She taught English literature and oversaw the school's Drama Club. She was an energetic, enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. She was supportive and alert to her students at the all-girls school. -- Cathy's obituary at findagrave.

    • Cathy met Gerry Koob when he was an intern at Keough. Koob told The Sun that he and Cathy were deeply in love but that “it was a love between two celibates in a commitment to Christ.” Koob described Cathy as a naive, unworldly young woman who had no sense of her own beauty -- or its effect on others.
  • Fall Charles Franz starts 8th grade.
    • Maskell is giving Charles Franz rides home from mass. Maskell would put the bike in the trunk, and they'd stop for a Snoball. Father Maskell regularly comes in Charles Franz classroom saying he wanted to see Charles up at the Rectory. At first it was once a week. Then it was 2-3 times per week. Often Maskell would keep Charles from lunch until the day ended (2:30). Maskell taught Charles how to drink and take drugs to forget what was happening around him.
    • Maskell would call Charles Franz (13) out of class at the parish school to chat, usually for several hours at a time, two or three times a week. They often started out talking about sports, but invariably wound to the subject of male anatomy.
    • One day, Maskell took Charles and two other boys target shooting. On the drive home, Charles sat up front with Maskell, and as the car rose over a bump in the road, Charles alleges, Maskell reached over, grabbed the accuser's crotch, and said playfully, "Hold on to your balls."
  • November 17: Cathy's 24th birthday.
1967
  • Winter: Maskell serves at St. Clements in 1967. Maskell also served as a chaplain for the Maryland State Police and Baltimore County Police and Maryland National Guard and later the Air National Guard as a Lieutenant colonel. (Dates unknown)
  • April 13: Maskell's 28th birthday.
    • Charles says he began to feel cautious around Maskell. One afternoon when the school baseball team was changing into new uniform pants, Maskell told Charles that he needed a jockstrap to play. Charles didn't have one, but Maskell did, back in the rectory. Maskell sent the Charles to get it, giving him the key to his bedroom. Charles dashed to the rectory, lept into the jockstrap, and was dressed in record time, he says, just before Maskell arrived.
    • Charles began telling his friends to be careful around Maskell. Word of this filtered back to Maskell, who called Charles into the rectory, several days before graduation, Charles says. Allegedly, Maskell confronted him: "Listen, you little m-----f----r. If one more person says something to me that came from you, I'm gonna make sure you don't graduate."
    • [In The Keeper's Charles said that he told a couple of his friends to stay away from Maskell, and that Maskell came to his classroom and lifted him out of his seat by his hair and ordered him to the rectory. In the rectory, Maskell said, "Listen you little motherfucker, if I hear one more thing... I'm going to make sure you don't graduate." Maskell tossed Charles off the basketball team, off the baseball team, and kicked him out of CYO.]
  • May: At home, Charles told his mother that Maskell had threatened him. She phoned the archdiocese to complain, and Charles graduated on time, and within three months Maskell, though continuing to reside and perform some duties at St. Clement, was assigned to Archbishop Keough High School for girls.
    • [In the Keepers, Charles says that in May of 1967, his mother went down to the Archdiocese and went straight to the top and said, "Father Maskell is abusing my 8th grade son." Shortly thereafter, Father Collopy calls Charles to tell him he is back on all the teams and back in the CYO, and that Maskell was no longer at St. Clement's and was being transferred.]
  • Spring: End of second school year Keough is open. // End of Cathy's second year teaching at Keough // End of Charles Franz 8th grade year.
  • Gerry Koob told the Huffington Post that he was in a romantic relationship with Cesnik and that "two years before her disappearance" -- before he was ordained and before she had taken her final vows -- he had asked her to marry him. She turned him down, but they continued to spend time together and write each other love letters.
  • According to a letter, Cathy wrote in June of 1969, June of 1967 is when she began to feel that living the way she had been living as a nun was not the right way for her.
  • July 21: Cathy took final vows on July 21, 1967. Her professed name was Sister Joanita.
  • Fall: Maskell victims Jean, Deb Silcox and Lil Hughes start their freshman year at Keough. Charles starts his Freshman year at Mt. St. Joseph High School.
    • This is the third year Keough has been open. This is the start of Maskell's first year as school chaplain and counselor at Keough. Cathy starts her third year teaching at Keough. She is still living in the residences at Keough.
    • Jean recalls confessing to Magnus that her uncle had urged her to let a dog lick her sexually, and that the dog later died. She claims Magnus then began masturbating, saying that if she told anyone, she would go to hell.
    • Wehner said she went to see Magnus, the school’s religious services director, for confession when she was 14 years old, because she had been feeling guilty about sexual abuse she experienced as a young child. The priest turned to her in the confessional, quizzed her on the details of the abuse, and began masturbating as she talked, she said.
    • After that, Maskell and Magnus would call her into their offices for joint counseling sessions, which they said was for the purpose of helping her find God’s forgiveness for what she did as a child. She says they would masturbate in front of her, take nude photos of her and force her to perform sex acts as part of her “spiritual healing” process. “I thought they were literally praying for me,” she said.
    • Jean claims Maskell and Magnus instructed her to perform oral sex on them because “the Holy Spirit was coming through them....It was like the Eucharist." She saw Maskell for counseling sessions during which "he was praying that I would stop being bad."
    • Soon, Maskell began calling Wehner out of class and into his office without Magnus, she said. He would show her pornography, tell her that he was trying to help God forgive her for the abuse she suffered as a child, and rape her. “He kept saying it didn’t seem like I was open to the Holy Spirit and God’s grace,” Wehner said. “I was just doing what I was being told, thinking I must be such a horrible person that God can’t forgive me.”
    • Per Baltimore Magazine (1995): At Keough, Maskell was known by at least two contradictory personae. One was a gruff militarist who barked out commands in the hallway and might search a girl's locker for drugs or even cut open the hem of her skirt if he believed she was showing too much thigh.
    • The other was a chummy confidant who developed a following among some of the girls by offering his office as a smoking lounge in a school where smoking was grounds for suspension. Girls pretended to need his counsel so they could get out of class. After hear­ing his invitation to light up, they'd smoke until they got dizzy, spinning their tales of parental misunderstanding, or boyfriend problems, as the priest would nod appreciatively and take notes.
    • Many women today recall his being genuinely helpful. "He was my mentor," says one. Says another: "He helped me to put my life back together. He let me cry on his shoulder." But while dispensing such comfort, others claim, Maskell also sometimes crossed a line.
    • Keough was a traditional Catholic school, where students were required to wear knee-length plaid skirts and shirts buttoned all the way up to their necks. But it was hardly immune to the 1960s counterculture. Former Keough students said that in Maskell’s office and in the nearby rectory, where he lived, the priest offered the girls a relaxed, open-minded environment where they could talk freely about sex and drugs, drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes on his red velour sofa and ask for help dealing with their traditional Catholic parents. At the peak of the sexual revolution, Maskell was well positioned to exploit the experimental and rebellious atmosphere of the late 1960s and early 1970s. In a confusing time, he offered an intoxicating cocktail of spiritual guidance, hypnosis, booze, pills and himself.
    • Maskell was a charismatic young man in his late 20s when he started at Keough as chaplain in 1967, two years after it opened. Broad-shouldered, with light blue eyes, the Irish-descended priest also served as the school’s psychological counselor.
    • Former Keough students said Maskell used his charm, psychology training and moral authority to first disarm the young girls, then to manipulate them into sexual relationships. He targeted struggling or badly behaved students — Hoskins and Schaub, who got straight As, said he never bothered them — asking the girls if they were having problems at home, or if they had been sexually active with their boyfriends or used drugs. Sometimes the priest used repetitive phrases — “I only want what’s best for you, just what’s best for you,” one woman recalled him saying — to coax them into talking.
  • November 17: Cathy's 25th birthday (Those who knew Cathy remembered her spiritual and physical beauty. Quiet and reserved, but friendly, gentle and supportive, Cathy was respected and loved as a teacher and friend.)
    • “Sister Cathy was always a joy to be around,” said David A. Curtis, who attended Cardinal Gibbons High School but studied drama at Keough. As the drama teacher, “she was very supportive; she was your friend. But she didn’t let the friendship issue cloud the fact that she was our teacher, our leader … the adult.”
  • Christmastime: Margaret and Edgar get engaged.
1968
  • Maskell has limited duties at St. Clement's and serves at Our Lady of Victory in 1968. Maskell also chaplained for the Baltimore County Police, the Maryland State Police and the Maryland National Guard. Maskell was known to host an improvised mass on the hood of a jeep, or and/or cheering up troops in the rain, or walking over to a county police sta­tion with one of his own pistols to tar­get shoot with the boys.
  • April 6-14: Baltimore Riots
  • April 13: Maskell's 29th birthday.
  • Spring: Maskell victims Jean, Deb Silcox and Lil Hughes end their freshman year at Keough. Charles ends his Freshman year at Mt. St. Joseph's High School. End of Cathy's third year teaching at Keough.
  • Cathy is still feeling like the way in which she is living as a nun is not the right way for her (per a letter she would write a year later.)
  • Koob said he asked Cathy to marry him before he was ordained in 1968 and before she had taken her final vows. She refused, but the two continued to see each other regularly and exchanged letters. Koob remained a Jesuit priest for a decade after her death.
    • Koob gave Cathy a ring inscribed in Greek. It reads: "Agape is the unconditional love." Cathy was wearing that ring when her body was found.
  • Fall:
  • Cesnik was like a real-life version of Maria, Julie Andrews’ character from “The Sound of Music,” Hoskins recalled: warm, exuberant and strikingly beautiful. The nun played guitar and wrote musicals for the girls to perform on stage. She invented creative vocabulary games to push the girls to teach each other new, obscure words. [Cathy is still living in the residences at Keough.]
    • Maskell begins second year as school chaplain and counselor at Archbishop Keough // Cathy starts her fourth year teaching at Archbishop Keough.
    • Maskell victims Jean, Deb Silcox and Lil Hughes start their Sophomore years at Keough. Charles starts his Sophomore year at Mt. St. Joseph High School. Maskell victim Teresa Lancaster starts her freshman year at Keough. Lancaster is a straight A student. Lancaster says she was a nerd in the 9th grade. This is the fourth year Keough has been open. The school's first graduating seniors start the school year.
    • Undated photo of a group of girls from the Keough Class of 1970
  • Over a three-year period, Jean says she and Maskell had vaginal intercourse four times, including once during which he called her a whore. She alleges Maskell once forced her to have sex with a uni­formed police officer and at least once to have sex with someone who gave the priest money. Other memories involve a broth­er from Cardinal Gibbons, anal intercourse, and coerced enemas.
    • Jean recalls that Maskell hypnotized her: "He would use a certain phrase and everything would just stop." The phrase, she says, was, "I only want what's best for you, just what's best for you." She says he told her that before divulging a certain incident to anyone, "I was to kill myself."
    • Jean also claims Maskell once put a gun in her mouth. On another occasion, she says Maskell held an unloaded gun to her head and pulled the trigger. Maskell warned Jean that if her policeman father ever learned "what was going on," Maskell would do the same thing to her father, but with a loaded gun.
  • Kathy Hobeck said she asked Cesnik to protect her from Maskell’s abuse when she attended Keough in 1968. “She would make excuses for me when he would ask me to come down [to his office],” Hobeck said. “She’d say, ‘She’s in a study, she can’t get away,’ or she’d make up a story.”
  • October: Cathy took her students to see the 1968 movie version of “Romeo and Juliet” after they read the Shakespeare play.
  • November 17: Cathy's 26th birthday
1969
  • John A. “Pete” McKeon, a Christian brother, met Cathy Cesnik and Gerry Koob at a 1969 retreat for Notre Dame sisters in Boston. McKeon described Cathy as “extremely intelligent, extremely sensitive.” McKeon said Cahty was chosen to help lead the retreat “for her poetic ability, because of her sensitivity to pick up on other people’s feelings.”
    • Like many young religious in the late 1960s, Cathy was troubled by the regimented life of the convent.
    • It was an era when many young priests and nuns were advocating social activism at the same time they were questioning the personal and emotional demands of celibacy that the church imposed. According to Helen Russell Phillips, Cathy had fallen in love with Gerald Koob, a young Jesuit priest.
  • March 31: Ford's new Maverick becomes available for sale for approximately $2,000.00 Photo of similar car. Cathy would have purchased this car sometime between April and October of 1969. It has been reported that Cathy and Russ jointly purchased the vehicle and shared it. And that at some point, police returned the Maverick to Russ, who continued to drive it, after Cathy's death.
  • April 13: Maskell's 30th birthday. Maskell also serves at Our Lady of Victory in 1969.
  • Spring:
    • Maskell victims: Jean, Deb Silcox and Lil Hughes end their Sophomore years at Keough. Charles ends his Sophomore year at Mt. St. Joseph. Maskell victim Teresa Lancaster ends her freshman year at Keough. She is still a straight-A student. This is the first year that Keough graduates a class of Seniors, meaning it's the fourth year they've been open.
    • End of Maskell's second year at Keough
    • May: Jean told police that in May, 1969, she confided in Cathy that a priest had sexually abused her at Keough. Jean never saw Cathy again after that term.
    • The only person who tried to help the girls was Sister Cathy Cesnik. Wehner said that in 1969, at the end of her sophomore year, Cesnik stole a moment alone with her in her classroom. “Are the priests hurting you?” the nun asked gently. Wehner nodded her head, too afraid to open her mouth. Cesnik told Wehner to go home and enjoy the summer. She said she would handle the situation.
    • In the Spring of 1969, it's the end of Cathy's fourth year teaching at Keough. Cathy and Russell ask for permission to live outside the 40-sister convent but to continue teaching as nuns, but outside of Archbishop Keough.
    • Russell (who was married and living in Carroll County when she was interviewed in 1994), said the idea of living outside the convent was often discussed, particularly among the younger nuns. Russell said The Order denied Cathy and Russell's request to live outside the convent and teach at public schools.
    • “But we were the renegades,” Russell said. “We said we were going anyway. We already had the apartment.”
    • This conflicts with Cecilia -- the ex-nun on The Keepers -- who said that Mother Maurice gave Cathy and Russell permission to experiment. Koob confirms The Order refused the request and that Cathy had until December 31 to move back to the convent or quit being a nun. [From Cathy's obituary at findagrave: As many religious did in the turbulent 60's, Sister Joanita (Cathy) requested permission to take a sabbatical from the Order. This was granted and Catherine moved with another nun into an apartment in the Edmondson Village area of Baltimore. She also decided to teach instead at Western High School beginning in the fall of 1969.]
  • June:
    • Russell and Cathy left Keough (and the residence) in June 1969, adopted civilian dress, got teaching jobs in city schools and moved into the Carriage House Apartments on North Bend Road, in Southwest Baltimore.
    • June 1, 1969: Letter from Cathy explaining decision to leave Keough.
    • Margaret and Edgar get into a big fight because he's not paying the bills. Edgar chokes Margaret and says he could kill her. Margaret wants to leave but she's carrying twins.
  • August: Cathy went home to Pittsburgh to explain to her family why she was leaving Keough. Marilyn said Cathy wasn't her happy-go-lucky self and was sad. Cathy's father told her the world is a dangerous place and Cathy said, "How do you know my world is not a dangerous place?"

2020.06.14 22:35 keenerd I didn't like any of the dashboards out there, so I made my own

Disclaimer: I just know how to draw pretty lines. I am not an epidemiologist, or any kind of ologist.
http://kmkeen.com/tmp/covid-pa.png (Please don't rehost. My server can take a good hug, and I update this every day.)
Data is from the pa.gov website. I made this because I couldn't find anything that gave a good at-a-glance idea of how things were going for my family and friends. I particularly don't like that PA's official dashboard only gives the past two weeks of data in visual form.
These charts combine the (smoothed) new-case numbers with the color phase, and the cases in the past two weeks per 100,000 people. I am concerned that "green" is going to send the wrong message to people who are on the fence about how serious things are, and will lead to an early second wave.
Some observations:
  • The moving average doesn't really work for the smaller counties in the western half of the state. (eg, half a person per day on average)
  • However several of them have seen a marked increase in cases after going green: Jefferson, Potter, Venango.
  • Luzerne and Monroe had the best response. Lehigh is a close third. They got it under control faster than any other county and kept it low. Their curves look similar to some of the better european countries.
  • Susquehanna is getting hit hard by a second wave, and has surpassed their initial spike. For a few days they had the highest per-capita rate anywhere in the state.
  • Lebanon's second wave is well under way. It hasn't yet passed their first peak, but just today they stole the per-capita lead away from Susquehanna.
  • Erie was largely spared initially, and I worry that people are burned out and won't do enough to slow their current spike.
What about those numbers about how great the state overall is doing? That is mostly because of the largest eastern counties getting things under control. There are a lot of upper-middle-sized counties that are doing very poorly. Chester has been flat. Lancaster has been flat. Montgomery has been improving sluggishly. Lebanon has a second wave progressing at nearly exponential speed. If you live in these counties your risk of getting it from a stranger hasn't improved.
Then there is Dauphin County. They have never trended downward, steadily rising month after month, and are jockeying for the most cases per-capita. And they are going "green" on Friday! Despite never showing any real decrease in cases. I can only hope the experts have some additional data that makes this okay.
I am also a little annoyed that, as far as I can tell, Wolf has never released a statement about what conditions would necessitate a county downgrading from green to yellow.
If you have suggestions to improve the charts, I would like to try to make them better.

2020.06.10 01:04 trailnotfound PA Wilds Trail: 5/23-6/1 (long post)

PA Wilds Trail: 5/23-6/1 (long post)
On May 23rd, a friend (Dave) and I set out on an attempt at backpacking the newly crafted but constantly evolving PA Wilds Trail. Our best estimates put this version of the trail somewhere near 200 miles, but I’m still waiting on the final GPS verdict. Starting on the Quehanna Trail at Parker Dam State Park, we planned on a roughly 10 day journey to the northern terminus of the West Rim Trail. This won’t be an exhaustive trip report, as u/ANF_Hiker has already written a much more detailed and better photographed report.
Big 3 gear: Gregory Optic 58, Marmot NanoWave 45, Borah Gear 7x9 UL Tarp
The rest: REI Flash Insulated pad (RIP), Pocket Rocket, Z-lite.. ask if you want to know any others
Day 1: This spring was a late one in northern PA, which became obvious as we drove from my friend’s house in Lancaster to Parker Dam. The full green canopy gave way to brown, mostly bare branches, with little groundcover showing. As we started in Parker Dam the forests looked like they belonged to late April, not late May. The day was warm but overcast. Recent rains made the trails a wet mess, though this water coupled with the upcoming warm weather would be enough to fast-forward through the season over the coming days. On Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, the parking lot was fuller than I’d seen before, but we only ran into 3 groups this day. The route follows the southern arm of the QT east to the East Cross Connector, which it then takes north with a few scenic detours. This section of trail is flat to rolling, which we appreciated for the first day. The PA Wilds Trail has few resupply options, so we carried a full week’s worth of food to get us to Wolfe’s General Store in Slate Run. While the cloudy skies made my pictures turn out poorly, this is a beautiful section, mostly following streams past beaver meadows and cascades. We made it to a campsite at the far southern end of Meeker Run, where we set up the tarp shortly before dark and a few showers.
Day 2: The East Cross Connector is beautiful, but the PA Wilds Trail improves it by first visiting Crawford Vista and the Bridge Trail, and later by taking the Teaberry/Lincoln Loop trails. Despite another warm overcast day, the scenery was still excellent if not easy to photograph. The dam at the Beaver Run Shallow Water Impoundment has now been repaired, with a pair of osprey already nesting nearby. The Lincoln Loop and Teaberry Trail were rougher than I remembered, thanks in part to my overloaded backpack. This short side trail to upper Paige Run is very worthwhile though, with 3 minor but excellent vistas, an hidden cascading stream, and varied ecosystems. The ECC brought us back to the QT at the top of Porcupine Draft, a beautiful and difficult valley. Luckily the nettles were only inches high, but we guessed correctly that they’d be much taller by the time we were off trail. The cascades and falls in Sanders Draft were on full show thanks to the high water. We camped that evening at the top of Laurel Draft, finishing one of the crowded days on the trail. Even as we settled in for an early night we were visited after dark by a couple and their dog, asking if they could share our cramped site, but we directed them to another tiny nearby spot. Unfortunately I was trying relatively new shoes on this trip, and developed major blisters under the pads on both feet this day (I don’t know when I last had blisters). Facing at least 8 more long mileage days I questioned whether I had any chance of finishing, but decided to at least give it another few days before calling it quits.
Day 3: We got an early start and took the QT down Laurel Draft, up Upper Pine Hollow (passing a bear cub) and over to the Old Sinnemahoning Trail, which drops off the north side of the plateau to the town of Sinnemahoning. Initially a grassy double track, this trail slowly constricted to a brushy single track before dropping into a shaded but open hemlock forest. This was much nicer than expected, but would be a brutal climb if headed the other way. From the bottom we headed over to the Sinnemahoning Tavern, and short walk down Rt 144, fighting past the never ending stream of trucks leaving their Memorial Day weekends. The tavern was open for takeout, and despite having plenty of food I ordered 2 chicken cheesesteaks: 1 for lunch, and another for dinner. I have to say, these sandwiches were far better than they had any right to be. This place is definitely worth a visit, despite the cartoonishly racist moron (not a local) that tried talking to us as we waited for our food. Dave also got a cheesesteak, but decided against carrying one for dinner. After lunch we walked the hot sunny road through Jericho to the start of the Donut Hole Trail, which begins at a muddy ATV trail through an unwelcoming private yard. This was a much hotter day, and I began to regret my sandwich on the muggy 1300’ climb. While the canopy was growing, the oaks were still missing most of their leaves, so the sun could be intense even in the forest. The DHT is a much different trail than the QT. Despite being generally well blazed the treadway was nonexistent in many sections, so we just picked our way through the rocks while looking out for snakes. With my developing blisters this was particularly tough, but this would be an extremely difficult trail in late summer when the ferns and undergrowth are fully grown. The DHT also is seriously lacking in developed camp sites. In fact, much of the entire route is. If I was going to do it again, I’d probably plan on each person finding their own site or using hammocks. Even with a small and versatile shelter we often had to push a few miles past our planned end points to find a suitable spot. This night we camped on a gated, grassy logging road. My feet were bad enough I let Dave get our water, while I sat and ate my delicious cheesesteak. Unfortunately my sleeping pad developed a major leak this night, but I was glad to have also carried a Z-lite for backup, and at least the nights were warm (so far).

Sketchiest bridge of the trip
Day 4: We started with a significant climb up to the vistas overlooking Kettle Creek State Park. We’d hoped to be able to mail a supply drop here, but never heard any responses from the park to our multiple requests (probably due to COVID closure). The DHT now officially follows the high water route, which is a dry bridge crossing of Kettle Creek followed by a road walk. Thankfully the roads were empty and it was a cool morning, plus a flock of Baltimore orioles kept us company for a mile or so. Then we were back on the trail as it rolled over hills with slowly vanishing winter vistas, eventually making its way to the Tamarack Fire Tower. While new, this tower is fenced and closed, but we took a break lying on a cold, shaded concrete porch for a while here anyways. We then descended to Rt 144 and camped in a remarkably unsuitable site along Browns Mill Hollow. At least I was able to use my deflated pad to fill in an uncomfortable hole that night.

Kettle Creek
Day 5: The next day we continued on the DHT, heading towards its juncture with the Susquehannock Trail System. These two trails run concurrent for somewhere around 10 miles, and the difference in trail use and maintenance is immediately apparent. While the DHT was somewhat more defined after the first day, the STS is in far better shape (though still rough). We enjoyed a late lunch at the excellent Scoval Branch shelter before spending a few miles on pipelines and gravel roads. Although we never saw any elk on our trip, I was surprised to see tracks and scat along both the DHT and STS. Upon arriving at the Ted’s Truss campsite we decided it was a perfect day to stop early. There’s a nice campsite there, the sun was still up and warm enough to let us wash off in the stream and still dry before bed, and going any farther would mean climbing up the brutal Morgan Hollow to miles of dry ridge. We had our only fire of the trip here, and reminisced about the time I slapped a mouse at this very site years back. I took advantage of the early camp and an ancient sleeping pad patch kit I found in my first aid kit to fix my pad, affording a decent night’s sleep. This slightly shorter day gave my feet a chance to heal a bit, which gave me confidence I could limp through another hundred miles or so.
Day 6: After several days of sun we had a warm but rainy & humid day, kicked off with a slog up Morgan Hollow. A few miles of ridge walking brought us to the end of our time on the STS, as we took the North Link Trail over to the Black Forest Trail. The NLT is a very pretty, mellow, and slightly tedious multi-use trail that connects with the BFT along County Line Branch. It generally follows old railroads, keeping it mostly level as it contours around ridges and valleys. The trail itself is actually very pleasant, running through the old railroad cuts and fills. The only downsides are that it takes around 7 miles to cover 2.5 linear miles, and despite running above several streams it’s remarkably devoid of water sources. The soft treadway was also heavily impacted by recent horse use. On the eastern side, the PAWT swaps the Dyer Branch Trail for the remainder of the NLT. This cuts off much of County Line Branch and its countless stream crossings, replacing it with a walk along the beautiful and lightly traveled Dyer Branch. It’s difficult to convey how easy the BFT treadway was compared to everything up to this point. Sure, the terrain is tough, but the smooth trails made it seem like a breeze in comparison. We quickly made our way to a campsite just west of Rt 44 in Yellow Jacket Hollow, shortly after a sudden downpour soaked me (Dave was smart enough to have an umbrella). It rained off and on through the night, but thankfully cleared up by morning. While we’d started our trip in what felt like early spring, the warmth and water were making obvious changes. Azaleas were now blooming everywhere, which we’d smelled as often as we’d seen. The oaks had at least partially leafed out, providing more shade and rain protection than we’d had up to this point. Unfortunately, the stinging nettles were also growing quickly, and would continue for the rest of the trip.
Day 7: The PAWT is designed to take you through some of the highlights of northern PA, and apparently many of them are on the BFT. This was one of our biggest elevation days, as we ranged through the eastern side of that loop. After crossing 44, we followed the BFT CCW until the Old Supply Trail in Foster Hollow, where we jumped on the newly restored Old Slate Run Trail (possibly not the correct name), which reconnects with the BFT at Red Run. In another day of occasional showers, we climbed up Red Run as clouds threatened. The bottom 5(!) sites were in use, inexplicably mostly by several large groups of Mennonites packed into tiny spaces. Eventually we found a little used site across Red Run where we made camp and dinner just before the rain started. Unfortunately my pad started leaking again and I was out of repair materials, so not a great night sleep for me.

BFT along fork of Callahan Run
Day 8: This day we’d wrap up the BFT, resupply at Slate Run, and work our way over towards the Mid State Trail. Those were the big picture goals, but the details were still up in the air. Specifically, Wolfe’s was still a pretty big unknown, and the official route to the MST was still being debated when we started our trip. Regardless, we had a beautiful but cool morning along the BFT as we climbed Red Run and descended through the Algerine section. The mountain laurels were even starting to flower, though none of the buds were opened yet. While the Hotel Manor wasn’t opened yet either, we arrived at Wolfe’s just in time to order sandwiches (roast beef & horseradish for both lunch and a dinner from their excellent deli) ahead of the crowd, and tried to make a few day’s dinner out of the limited selection. It doesn’t look like they’d fully resupplied after the COVID closure, so we had to make do with candy bars, cookies, Spam, cheese, and bread for the remainder of our trip, but it worked just fine. I also managed to get some UV curing wader-repair glue from the fly shop, and patched up my sleeping pad again as we ate lunch outside. From here, there were several options to get to the MST. Before the trip we’d both suggested Hilborn Trail over to Beulah Land Rd, but once our packs were loaded with food we passed on this. We instead settled on Dragon’s Back Trail up to the Golden Eagle Trail, which we’d take over to a game trail into Wolf Run Wild Area, where we’d heard of possible camping. The road walk sounded boring, and we knew from prior exploration that the unblazed and unmaintained trails along Mill Run and Sebring Branch were beautiful and wild, even if they barely existed. Surprisingly, we ran into Jeff Mitchell at the top of Dragon’s Back Trail. This entire route was his creation, and he was out scouting the various options on a beautiful cool weekend. After a chat with him we were on our way to the Wolf Run Vista, where we easily found the game trail leading to a descent down O’Brian Hollow. The game trail turned out to be harder to follow than we expected, and eventually disappeared into a full blown bushwhack, but thankfully had recently been flagged. While I often push for off trail exploration, between my feet and my loaded pack this was a very exhausting stretch that I’m unlikely to recommend. Descending from Beulah Land Vista (head NE from the vista, which we’d done on our last visit) is significantly easier, but does pass through game lands making it less likely to be the official route. We eventually met up with the old grade above Mill Run and followed it a little more than a mile down to the confluence with Sebring Branch. This grade is a blast, but is also extremely challenging. Slope failures and downed trees often have you side-hilling on mud directly above steep slopes, but the cascades and falls below are wonderful. We eventually had to cross Mill Run to get to the grade along Sebring Branch, and as the day never warmed up much and a night forecast in the 30s, we decided to wade across barefoot to keep our shoes dry (turned out to be a great choice). I later learned there was a campsite immediately downstream from this confluence, but we missed it and continued up Sebring Branch a mile or so to a flat spot where we camped. Unfortunately my attempted repairs on my sleeping pad didn’t account for the 3 new places the seam blew out, so this was a particularly cold night for me. FYI: a deflated sleeping pad still can insulate as a blanket.

Sebring Branch
Day 9: The cold made it easy to wake up early and get going this morning, which gave us one of our longest and hilliest days of the trip. Climbing out of Sebring Branch we quickly met up with the MST. I’d never been on this stretch before so this was a bonus for me. It ended up following miles of grassy gated roads, which could have been boring if we weren’t already getting worn out. Instead we were thankful for the chance to make some miles, and save our energy for the exceptional streams and hills near Trout Run. Eventually the trail climbed to Gillespie Point before descending to Blackwell (and ice cream). From here we crossed over to Bohen Trail, and with a slight detour to a lesser used side trail that afforded better views of the falls, climbed up to the West Rim Trail. After starting our trip on a weekend we were now back to another Saturday, and were a little unprepared for the crowds. We probably passed 10 sites that were in use before finding a vacant dry site a few miles farther than planned. After a dinner of Spam and cheese sandwiches, we settled in for our last night and coldest night on the trail. It definitely dropped below 40, but I’d luckily been able to patch enough of the holes in my pad to almost make it through the night before it deflated.

Gillespie Point looking south
Day 10: Nothing too exciting about this day, except that it was beautiful weather to be on the WRT. With the end this close and with our packs as light as they’d been all week, we were motivated to get through the ~23 remaining miles in one go. I’d been able to contact my amazing parents the night before, so we now had a 6:30 deadline to make it to the northern terminus. Luckily the WRT is relatively mellow going, so we arrived with plenty of time to spare, and enjoyed a couple beers and sandwiches in the parking lot (did I mention my parents are amazing?).

West Rim Trail
Overall: This is an incredible, challenging, wild, rough, and varied route. I wouldn’t consider it a single trail, but instead a suggested path to tour the wilds of north central PA. At any point along the way there are countless options. You could take a 3.5 mile detour to Cross Fork for a resupply, tromp through Hammersley to a STS cross connector, and rejoin the route 30 miles later. Or instead of the North Link Trail you could opt for the much more direct but similarly beautiful South Link Trail. Or use the southern arm of the Golden Eagle Trail to add a few top-notch miles on your way to the MST. What you shouldn’t expect on this route is a decent treadway, abundant campsites, or easy supply options. This is definitely not a beginner friendly route.
Having now hiked the trail, I’m even more impressed with the earlier efforts of u/ANF_Hiker. I had the benefit of traveling with a good friend and experienced backpacker, which made route finding and snake avoiding less exhausting. We also had longer days and slightly warmer nights, meaning less to carry to more daylight to travel. I’d like to thank u/ANF_Hiker for his exhaustive trip report and trail data, as well as Jeff Mitchell and the rest of the PA hiking community for helping plan this route, and of course all the maintainers that make sure there are still trails to wander.

2020.06.03 19:22 TKoMEaP Let's talk about the PA primary results

Hey ya'll so, I'm sure many of you know that several states had elections yesterday. While we've been celebrating Steve King losing his primary contest, I think the PA results have been largely overshadowed.
In 2016, Trump won Pennsylvania by 44,000 votes (or .7%). The closeness of the race and the high amount of delegates at stake of course means that PA is a huge battleground for 2020. From my observations, the votes that led to Trump's slim victory mostly came from the suburban counties of Berks and Lancaster county, along with the flipping of traditionally Democratic counties like Northampton and Erie. This observation is further reinforced by observing Gov. Wolf's victory in 2018, where he won back Northampton and Erie counties, and flipped Berks county.
With over 80% of ballots cast yesterday now accounted for, I think we might be able to start making some educated guesses on how PA will trend this November.'
First, a huge warning, the turnout for both parties was pretty dismal. It looks like both parties are either just barely going to reach a million votes or slightly under a million votes. In the 2016 primary, both parties had over 1.5 million votes.
However, with neither party having a huge advantage in turnout this time around, I still think the information gained from yesterday's primary is valuable and can probably be extrapolated to make some predictions.
So, important observations from yesterday's PA primary:
  1. The GOP had a higher turn out than the DNC This is an evolving situation, it looks like the DNC might have had a higher turnout now, regardless the turnout was very close for both parties. Unlike Michigan in 2016, Pennsylvania's DNC primary actually had a higher turnout than the GOP's in the 2016 primary. Of course, Trump won the state despite that, so this isn't necessarily a tell-tale sign of things to come. However, it is clear that PA is not nearly as safe for the DNC as it once was, and is certainly at risk of becoming a GOP stronghold.
  2. Northampton County had a stronger Biden turnout than Trump. This is some good news, Biden had nearly 5,000 more votes than Trump did in their respective primaries in Northampton county. Compared to 2016, Biden alone had roughly as many votes last night in the county as Bernie and Clinton's votes combined in the 2016 primary.
  3. The rest of the potential swing counties, especially Philadelphia suburban counties, are trending further towards Trump. From my, albeit elementary, calculations it looks like even accounting for the low voter turn out, scaling up Biden's votes to be more comparable to a 1.6 million voter turnout like 2016 STILL results in him having a lower turnout than Bernie got in 2016 in the suburban counties of Berks and Lancaster. On the other hand, Trump had a significantly higher turnout in these counties than he did in the 2016 primary (when scaling up). Hate to give the Bernie Bros credit, but it's hard to doubt that Bernie appears to be more popular in these rust belt suburban counties than Biden, sadly.
With all this taken into account, I think we ought to start assuming PA will in fact go to Trump in November. I'm just not seeing the same data like I saw in Michigan's primary or even Wisconsin's primary to suggest that there's been a retreat from Trump in the state. Now bear in mind that if the 2016 election results stayed the same, but with Michigan, WI, and AZ going to Biden, then we would have a tied election (probably going to Trump in the runoff election since the GOP have more states).
I have to be honest, I really want to believe Biden can beat Trump but, man it's looking like we're going to have the closest election of all time, with Trump losing the popular vote but just barely winning the electoral college.
To those living in Pennsylvania, if you have any commentary or context you can provide I'd love to see your response! Is PA really just trending further right than ever before? Did Democratic counties have less polling places open? etc...

2020.05.26 19:30 Juicyjackson What's happening in Lancaster?

Even though we saw <500 new cases in PA, lancaster was close to having 20% of the total positive cases today, I'm confused if there was data reconciliation in lancaster or increased testing or something, because that seems abnormally high for a day like today.
