This web site, a.k.a. the Wilkes-Barre Record is a broad brush opportunity to capture news and commentary about Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, Pennsylvania, two towns near and dear to many of our hearts, with a lot of other wonderful towns in-between. This is not the Wilkes-Barre Publishing Company's original Wilkes-Barre Record which some readers may recall but the editors of this site have a history with that fine retired paper. Other articles on the site discuss that fine history.
Look to your left and you will find lots of assistance for the WB Area, including the Notre Dame, Penn State, Eagles, and Steelers schedules. Plus, you can find out what is playing at all movie houses in the area as well as the Drive-In Theaters. You don't need the paper. Eyes left:

We are here because sometimes as you know, our local newspapers, including the Scranton Times, the Citizens Voice, The Hazleton Dispatch, the Pocono Record, and the Times Leader are forced by their management to be so politically correct and so exacting that they just don't get the full perspective on issues that are so very important to US, the citizens of Northeastern PA (NEPA).
We hope you come to visit regularly to this site for a dose of politically incorrect, but citizen-correct commentary and news. Send the editor your stuff when we make the mechanisms available and you may see yourself in print. When we get better at hosting the site, you may very well see opportunities to engage in forum topics about Wilkes-Barre & Scranton and vicinity, and of course those that pertain to the state and the country in which we all live and thrive.

Of all the things this site is, it is not the real Wilkes-Barre Record.

Please check out the article titled, the "Mystical Old Wilkes-Barre Record A Beauty of a Paper" for a more detailed look at the paper and a perspective from some of the finest paper boys you would ever want to meet.
