    United Water Plant

    The contractor building the new, multi – million dollar United Water plant on Irondale Road are trying to make hay while the sun shines. The utility's Bob Manbeck says a tough winter delayed the project somewhat, but they're looking at wrapping the project on time in May of 2016. The new plant is out of the flood zone... which had been the Achilles heal of the current facility leaving the town dry during times of high water. The facility will have a new and improved water pickup... and a state of the art filtration system... allowing United Water to provide it's product in the most difficult of conditions.

     

    Budget / Lynda Culver

    The House has voted in favor a $30.1- billion state budget that provides funding for the core functions of government without increasing the tax burden for Pennsylvania citizens. State Representative Lynda Culver of Northumberland and Snyder Counties says it's a pretty basic proposed spending plan. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration and is expected to go to the governor’s desk by Tuesday afternoon... if not before.

     

    Veto Threat
    During a news conference at the start of the weekend... Governor Wolf said a budget package from the state Republicans is a sham... and he won't sign it. The Governor said he's been meeting with lawmakers since he took office to try and work out a budget that he feels is right for Pennsylvania. But the new budget plan from Republicans is not it. Mr. Wolf said the plan he's seen prioritizes liquor privatization.... increases education funding by quote--"basically nothing"-- and shifts half a billion dollars in current expenses to next year's deficit. After that...Wolf says he hopes Republicans can suspend the games and get to work on a good budget.

     

    High Education
    Funding for four state-supported universities the latest battleground in the state budget stalemate to come. Funding bills for Penn State, PITT, Temple and Lincoln were rejected by the House Sunday night after they did not get the required 2-thirds majority. Democrats refused to give republicans the votes needed because they complained the 3% proposed increase fell far short of what Governor Tom Wolf proposed and what the schools need...

     

    Susquehanna River

    The Susquehanna River is clean.... but not as clean as it should be. That word from John Arway the head of the PA Fish and Boat Commission. Appearing on a recent edition of the WHLM Morning Buzz... Arway says the health of the river has come a long way from 30 to 40 – years ago. Arway says the big problem is fishing for small mouth bass. It used to be great, but Arway says the fishing isn't as good as it was a generation ago.

     

    Barletta Meet & Greet

    Congressman Lou Barletta of Hazleton... will be in Columbia County Monday to meet business owners in Catawissa. He plans to start at Woody's Place in the 300 block of Main Street. Monday afternoon, Mr. Barletta will be in Shamokin... presenting a bronze star to the family of Korean War Hero Thomas Lotis. The presentation takes place at the Price of Freedom Memorial on East Lincoln Street.

     

    Confederate Flag
    If you have spent time in the past week debating about whether or not the Confederate battle flag is a racist symbol, one Civil War expert says you're missing the point entirely. Many southerners see it as a symbol of heritage and history..others say it represents hatred and racism... the Confederate battle flag has been at the center of media and social media attention in the wake of the deadly shooting at a South Carolina church. But a professor at Gettysburg College says this discussion should have nothing to do with black and white issues. Dr. Allen Guelzo is the Director of Civil War Era Studies at Gettysburg College. He says the flag's representation of treason alone means it should be folded up and put away forever.

     

    Fatal Accident

    State Police in Hazleton continue to investigate a one car crash in southern Luzerne County which killed two men. Investigators say 57 - year old Gerald Sweitzer of Weatherly was driving too fast late Saturday afternoon on Capios Road... in Foster Township... when he lost control of his car... slamming into trees. A passenger... 36 – year old Keith Frick of Pittston... also died in the crash.

     

    Robbery Charges

    A Wilkes – Barre man with no permanent address is in the Luzerne County lock up. Police say two additional robbery charges have been filed against 31 - year old Timothy Burns... bringing the overall total to at least four against him. Burns is accused of knocking off the Turkey Hill store on North Pennsylvania Avenue twice the morning of June 15th... and surveillance video led to filing two additional charges.
