  12. Lackawanna Politics

    Democratic Chairman Eagan as we all know has well known ties to the city of lackawanna, along with using lackawanna politics in the town of boston.

  14. The New City of Lackawanna

    The City of Lackawanna population exceeded 30,000 people at one time, and Bethlehem Steel employed 20,000 at the Lackawanna plant.

  24. School Budget Time

    Next Tuesday (May 19 2009) it is time to vote on the Budget for the Lackawanna School System. In principal and as a senior citizen I always vote no on the school budget. After looking at my property taxes and my school tax I think I'm justified in voting no.
