Bob Barrickman talks WPIAL Football Re-alignment on Teleforum with Frank Sparks.

(Beaver Falls, Pa.)  The WPIAL approved its conference realignment plan that was created by input from the schools and has now released it to the public. Beaver County Radio Sports Director and play by play man Bob Barrickman joined Frank Sparks on Teleforum Tuesday January 21, 20120 to talk about the changes that are coming.

A big part of the discussion centered around the fair play rule that made it so Aliquippa is forced to move up to Class 4A Section 1 when in fact they are only a Class A school.  Barrickman told the listeners that the Quips are appealing the ruling.

Barrrickman and Sparks discussed the major take aways from the new alignment which are Class 4A is bigger with 22 teams compared to just 16 last year, Non-conference games will be played at the beginning of the season, The competition will be better compared to the last few years,  and teams are now in geographically friendly sections based on their location making for less travel and expense for the schools.

Clinton Won’t Commit to Backing Sanders If He’s Nominee Because ‘Nobody Likes’ Him

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton says “nobody likes” her former presidential rival Bernie Sanders, even as the Vermont senator remains among the front-runners in the 2020 Democratic race. In an interviewed posted Tuesday with “The Hollywood Reporter,” Clinton was asked about a comment she makes in an upcoming documentary where she says Sanders was “in Congress for years” but, “Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done.” Clinton replied that the criticism still holds and refused to say she’d endorse him this cycle if he wins the party’s nomination. Sanders campaign said it had no comment. Clinton’s sentiments may only energize Sanders loyalists who believed the Democratic establishment rigged the 2016 primary in her favor.

Democrats Decry McConnell’s Impeachment Rules as ‘Cover-Up’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial quickly burst into a partisan fight Tuesday as proceedings began unfolding at the Capitol. Democrats objected strongly to rules proposed by the Republican leader for compressed arguments and a speedy trial. Even before Chief Justice John Roberts gaveled in the session, Democrats warned that the rules package from Trump’s ally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, could force midnight sessions that would keep most Americans in the dark and create a sham proceeding. Trump said anew that the whole thing was a hoax, and he said he was sure it would “work out fine.”
