An oil spill at an area garage in Williamsport put city and other officials into action yesterday morning. A 275 gallon plastic tote containing motor oil was being moved at Wood’s Garage on Church Street when a valve at the bottom was knocked off spilling much of the oil. A good amount of it went into the catch basin which makes its way to the Susquehanna River. Hazardous waste teams were called in and protective booms were put into place.
Christians across the nation are mobilizing to defend a group of Houston pastors who were ordered by the city to turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity issues or Houston mayor.
Dave Welch, one of the five ministers who received a subpoena said, he will not be intimidated by Annise Parker, who is the city’s first openly lesbian mayor, nor will he comply with the city’s demands. My answer to that is — bring it on,” he said. It’s in response to a lawsuit filed related to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance. The new law, among other things will allow men who identify as women to use the restrooms of their choice — and vice versa. Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, said pastors around the nation should rally around the Houston ministers.
