    Pipeline Meeting

    It was decidedly a one -sided meeting... members of the Shale Justice Coalition meeting at the Bloomsburg Fire Hall Thursday night to discuss their concerns about a natural gas pipeline. Oklahoma – based Williams Company wants to route the 42 inch in diameter through the heart of Columbia County. Former BU employee Tom Lyons went one step further.... by calling for the ousting of politicians... no matter what party they belong to. There were no Williams Company employees at last night's meeting.

     

    Porngate
    More confusion from the State Attorney General's office as officials try to figure out how to deal with the bombastic pornographic email scandal in Harrisburg. WHLM's Brad Christman is reporting it's been a week of confusing messages from the office of state Attorney General Kathleen Kane. On Tuesday night, she appeared on CNN and said the porn emails that have made headlines in Harrisburg included images of children, leading some to ask if this was a criminal case of child porn. By Wednesday, the word was it was not kiddie porn. Also Wednesday, a spokesperson from Kane's office said Kane had decided not to prosecute regarding the emails. And today, spokesperson Renee Martin says she misspoke and no decision has been made. Meanwhile, Kane herself says she can't talk about the emails because of a court order....one that would have been in effect Tuesday night when she went on CNN...to talk about the emails.

     

    Obama Immigration

    President Obama addressed the Nation Thursday night to announce an executive action on illegal immigration. The illegal immigration issue helped lift former Hazleton mayor Lou Barletta to the U.S. House, and he was among the first to blast President Obama's plan to allow illegal immigrants to stay in America through an executive order that bypasses Congress. Barletta has already introduced a bill that would ban undocumented residents from employment, a bill similar to the controversial law he succeeded in passing in Hazleton, but saw overturned in the courts...

     

    Scott Township Budget

    The Scott Township supervisors this week approved their preliminary $1.3 - million budget for the 2015 fiscal year. Township Secretary Eric Stahley says it's your typical budget for a municipality the size of Scott Township. Stahley says residents will have 20 days to look it over before Supervisors give it final approval on December 17th.

     

    Bloomsburg Fire

    Bloomsburg firemen were called out of their quarters shortly after 4:15 AM Friday morning. It happened when an automatic fire alarm sounded at the 500 Club Apartments on Honeysuckle Lane. Reports from the scene indicate the man who lives in a third floor apartment had to be pulled out... after getting a healthy dose of smoke from burned food coming from a microwave. After getting some fresh air... and being checked out by EMS he was reported in good shape. After using exhaust fans to clear smoke in the apartment.. units were back at their station by 5 O'clock.

     

    I-80 Accident

    The westbound lane of Interstate 80 near Mifflinville is open to traffic Friday morning after an SUV... with a pull along trailer attached... rolled over on the superhighway Thursday afternoon. State police tell us 62 – year old Arlene Bobo of Newport, Vermont lost control with both the SUV and trailer rolling over. The driver got out of the wreckage... but a passenger... identified by police as 31 – year old Jeremy Bobo of the Los Angeles area... and two dogs were trapped for a short time. Both of the individuals were transported for Geisinger for treatment. The dogs were safely transported from the scene.

     

    Investing

    There's no shortage of ideas when it comes to investing, but you need to proceed with caution. The state Banking Department is stopping short of calling them scams, but use caution if you're considering binary options and so-called stream-of-income investments. The legalization of medical marijuana in 23 states has also led to the proliferation of some less-than-desirable investments in that industry. And be wary of investing in virtual currency which has experienced wide swings in price and is not backed by the FDIC.
     

    Officer Involved Shooting

    Charges have been filed stemming from that police involved shooting at a Hanover Township strip mall this week. 30 – year old Bong Bob Kim nearly running over two police officers during an undercover drug investigation. One officer squeezing off a round... hitting Kim. The Wilkes – Barre man is not stranger to criminal justice. He pleaded guilty to marijuana paraphernalia in connection with a 2008 traffic stop.
