Can you help return magic to her life?

My cat has been missing since Memorial Day, May 27. She is strictly an indoor cat, she got out inadvertently through an open window. I had an ad in the lost and found. Her name is Magic, she is 2 years old, tiny, weighs about 6 pounds; she is pure white with sky blue eyes and a pink nose.

She is de-clawed, making her defenseless outside. She was also born deaf, making her skittish. She lives on Penn St. in Hanover Twp. and has been spotted twice on Circle Drive in the township. If anyone has seen her or has her in their home please call me. She was not abandoned, she is loved dearly and needs to be back home.

My husband, myself and my cat Nancy are heartbroken. Please help me get my baby girl back home where she belongs. Call 570-829-0742, 570-332-1066 or 570-606-9517.

Throwing down challenge regarding God’s existence

Following my church/state activism in 2009, I received a large amount of hate mail from religious individuals throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania who were largely uninterested in discussion/debate.

Rather than responding to hatred with hatred, I issued a public debate challenge to individuals throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania and would now like to renew, modify, and extend my public debate challenge with hope that more thoughtful and civil discussion may occur — in addition to two formal debates in which I have already participated — that will be recorded and made publicly available.

Following is the new debate challenge:

Justin Vacula, atheist activist, activist for the separation of church and state, and co-organizer of the NEPA Freethought Society ( — a social, educational, activist, and philosophical community group of non-theists in Northeastern Pennsylvania — challenges priests, ministers, theologians, and others in Northeastern Pennsylvania and beyond to defend their religious beliefs in a “Does God Exist?” formal recorded debate which will be made available to the general public.

A debate about religious beliefs will provide an excellent educational opportunity for residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania and beyond whether they are religious or not and may include an optional charity component which will benefit a mutually agreed upon organization or cause.

Debate will be held in a venue open to the public and/or streamed online. Details including venue, format, and debate moderator will be negotiated by both parties.

More information about Justin Vacula — including his media appearances, qualifications, and activism — may be found on his website at the Skeptic Ink Network ( Interested parties may use the contact form on his website.
