February Cheyney Challenge
Cheyney stamped its 186the birthday in a big way this month. Aside from Founder's Day, here are two of them:
According to ESPN Front Row, the Lady Wolves were the first HBCU basketball program -- men's or women's -- to play in a Division I Final Four Championship. "The Lone Wolves" -- about that 1982 squad -- premiered on SportsCenter yesterday.

At any rate, please join the #CheyneyChallenge, a monthly donation campaign for America's first HBCU. I made my most recent donation of $18.37 today.

Bribery is still legal in Pennsylvania.
Martin (state senator, R-Lancaster) already campaigned in 2020, receiving money from the likes of PPL and other electric utility companies named in the article below. In addition, he JUST won the chairmanship of the state-money committee (Senate Appropriations), which -- in my view -- is one of the most powerful committees in state government.
The 2023-2024 legislative session has just begun, and Martin is in as chair of his respective committee. So why a fundraiser now?
And then came Regan (state senator, R-York), who forced a peaceful protester on a cane to the ground so he can get a plate.
I guess the former U.S. Marshal is very much a Pa. politician, too.
Gone get that money.
Michael Badges-Canning -- the peaceful protester -- is a retired educator, small farmer, 2022 candidate for Lieut. Governor, and mayor of Cherry Valley Borough (Western Pa.).
