PennFuture / DEP

There's more reaction from this week's report on how the state DEP is handling the natural gas boom in Pennsylvania.

Hazleton transit has an estimated $522,000 in reserves.

 

Fire Department Money

Small, rural fire companies statewide will share in nearly $600,000 in grants to help guard Pennsylvania's forests and other undeveloped areas.

It was a great fiscal year for the Pennsylvania Lottery...but it was still a struggle to make sure seniors got their fair share.

But the lottery is required to return 27 percent of ticket sales revenue to pay for those senior programs. It did so but just barely at 28-point-5 percent.

More Pension Reform

Don't blame me... that's what a Luzerne County State Senator is saying in reference to the $50 - billion state pension crisis in Pennsylvania. State Senator John Yudichak says he voted no on a measure passed in 2001 that provided a 50 percent increase in pension benefits for lawmakers and a 25 percent increase for state and school employees. He says a 2010 reform measure that reduced pension benefits among other actions is working, but the crisis continues. Yudichak supports a plan to borrow nine billion dollars to reduce the unfunded liability.. he says a severance tax on the natural gas industry could pay the interest.

 

Berwick Stabbing

A preliminary hearing is scheduled next month for a Berwick man charged with aggravated and simple assault... stemming from a domestic disturbance over the weekend in an apartment in the 100 block of West Second Street.

Temporary Beer Gardens

The Liquor Control Board's handling of temporary licenses is being criticized by the co-chair of a Senate Committee overseeing the agency. They're called "Pop-Up Gardens"... off-site, catered events granted temporary licenses to serve beer and liquor. But State Senator Jim Ferlo, one of two chairmen of the Senate Law and Justice committee which oversees the L-C-B, says the agency is allowing liquor to be sold 10 hours a day, seven days a week, when the limit should be 5 hours for just one day. Ferlo says this is hurting restaurants and taverns near these "Pop-Up Gardens".

 

Turnpike Speed Limits

The transportation law passed last year authorizes a 70 mile an hour speed limit on eligible roads. But WHLM's Cathy Clark reports portions of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will be the first to adopt the new limit. A 100 mile section of the PA Turnpike between the Blue Mountain and Morgantown Interchanges will go to 70 miles an hour this week. The Turnpike commission says its studies show that the design of the system in that area can safely accommodate the higher limit. Meanwhile, PennDOT is still reviewing other 65 mile an hour highways to see if the limit could be safely raised on any sections.

 

Fire Department Grants

Several Luzerne County fire volunteer fire departments are in line to receive an estimated 30 – thousand dollars from $590 – thousand being dolled out by the state Bureau of Forestry.

The drop is attributed to a stabilizing situation in Iraq.

 

Vacancy

The Luzerne County Treasurer's office is loosing an important employee. Office deputy Dominick DePolo will retire in early September after spending the past 15 years as a county employee.

Healthy PA

The budget relies on expected savings outlined in the Governor's Healthy Pennsylvania plan totaling $125 - million. The federal government must sign off on the plan and even if approval is given, any changes may affect the amount of those savings. State lawmakers say they haven't seen all the details, and even supporters of Healthy Pennsylvania, want to take a closer look because the bulk of the savings come from unspecified general assistance.

There could be action in a U S Senate committee as this week on a child protection bill introduced by Pennsylvania U S Senator Pat Toomey.

Suspicious Package

What was first thought to be a suspicious package at the corner of West Main Street and Whiteman Avenue in Bloomsburg late Thursday afternoon... turned out to be a broken crock pot. Bloomsburg Police telling us the package was first thought to contain a pressure cooker... similar to the one that exploded during the 2013 Boston Marathon killing several and injuring dozens of people. That alone was enough for West Main to be shut down as police investigated. But it only took cops minutes to figure out the device was nothing more than a broken crock pot. Two women were seen with the item moments before police arrived. If you have information about the incident... call Bloomsburg Police.

 

Pension Reform / Corbett

The hot button issue in Harrisburg these days is pension reform. Governor Tom Corbett was in Bloomsburg Thursday afternoon... promoting his message that reform in a “must.” The governor says he's getting his message out. Mr. Corbett, however, isn't pleased that the general assembly failed to take up the issue.... so a special three day session will be held... starting August 4th.

 

Bloomsburg Airport

The Bloomsburg Airport is in line to receive state money. Governor Corbett announcing that the town... the owner of the airport... will get $158,000 to update the airport's master plan. The money coming from from the PennDOT aviation development program and the Federal Aviation Administration. It's part of an $18 – million state and federal investment that will improve safety and operations at 35 PA airports that support an estimated 26 – hundred jobs.

 

Water Pollution
The Fish and Boat Commission has been charged with enforcing water pollution regulations for a century in PA and it says its having trouble keeping up with Marcellus Shale drilling due to staffing. The Commission is already short by 16 waterways conservation officers but Executive Director John Arway says they really need another 6 or 7 in a special force just to oversee the Marcellus Shale activity. He says they're understaffed to the point they can't do surveillance of waterways near Marcellus Shale drilling sites and they're just trying to respond to complaints.

 

Heritage Festival

Big doins' in Danville this weekend during the 16th annual Iron Heritage Festival. It began Thursday night with cemetery tours.... but tonight it's the IHF parade travels northbound on Mill Street.... followed by plenty of things to do on Saturday... so says Columbia – Montour Visitors Bureau executive director Otto Kurecian such as North Shore Railroad train rides to Bloomsburg and Northumberland... tours of the Montgomery House with the day wrapping up with fireworks over the Susquehanna River. Live coverage of Friday night's Iron Heritage Festival Parade begins at 7 O'clock on the WHLM Stations...

 

ArtFest

Last minute details are being taken care of dealing with ArtFest 2014 on Centre Street in Bloomsburg in two weeks. Downtown Bloomsburg, Incorporated's Adrienne Mael say we can hope to see a cross section of artisans... including a glass blower. ArtFest 2014 takes place on Centre Street in Bloomsburg Saturday, August 2nd.

 

PennDOT / Bridges
A program operated by PennDOT seeks those interested in refurbishing and re-using older bridges. Right now there is one state-owned bridge and ten county or locally-owned bridges for sale. The goal is to have them refurbished and relocated to a park, scenic trail, college campus, or other open space. It's part of a program to save historic bridges that cannot be rehabilitated for continued use by motorists.

 

Stockton Water

Some of the residents in the village of Stockton... near Hazleton... continued to use a contaminated water supply... despite a DEP warning that it's unsafe to use. Residents in Stockton continue to use a pond... which DEP says... is contaminated with the bacteria which effects a person's intestinal tract. Meantime... the City of Hazleton brought in a water buffalo late last week... providing fresh, clean water to Stockton's residents.

 

Quake Maps
New maps from the U S Geological Survey show 42 states are at risk for damaging ground shaking earthquakes. Pennsylvania's risk is about the same as in earlier maps. But the 2011 earthquake in Virginia shows the south eastern U S has the potential for larger and more damaging quakes than considered in previous maps. One thing not included in the maps- earthquakes believed to be induced by the waste water injection process in the deep wells. More study into that seismic activity is underway.

 

Schuylkill Fire

Fire investigators want to know how a house fire started yesterday in neighboring Schuylkill County. Authorities say crews were called out to a home on Sport Hill Road in the Branchdale section of Reilly Township.... after flames were seen coming from the structure. Luckily... no one was injured in Thursday's Schuylkill County blaze.

 

Fire Department Consolidation

The consolidation of three volunteer fire company's in the coal region may become a reality. Talks have been going on to merge McAdoo and Keystone in Schuylkill County and Tresckow in Carbon County. The three companies would be housed under one roof... and would save the departments a lot of money in the long run. There will be a meeting dealing with the issue in Tresckow on Monday.

United Water

Hummelstown - based United Water... the main provider of drinking water in the Bloomsburg area... are going through the regulatory hoops as they plan a new water plant for their subscribers. Utility spokesman Bob Manbeck says the company plans to use a membrane ultra system to provide the highest quality of water possible. Mr. Manbeck says ground could be broken as soon as this fall.

The $25 – million plant will be built above the flood plain... in an effort to keep water flowing during an emergency.

 

Roads and Bridges

A recent study does not paint a positive picture of roads and bridges in Pennsylvania. The report, from the American Society of Civil Engineers, gives Pennsylvania a D-Minus for the condition of its roads. In addition, 23% of the state's bridges are classified as structurally deficient, the highest percentage of any other state. Mike Britt, Senior Vice President of the Mechanicsburg engineering firm Modjeski and Masters, says that doesn't mean bridges are in danger of failing. The good news is the PennDOT funding bill signed by the Governor means over 500 bridges will be replaced over the next five years.

 

Jersey Casino Gambling

The declining casino picture in Atlantic City has officials in Pennsylvania keeping watch. One Atlantic City Casino has already shut down and three others have announced plans to follow suit if they don't find a buyer. Gaming insdustry officials here in Pennsylvania have expressed concern, but they're not expecting a similar decline here. Even so, Richard McGarvey, Spokesman for the PA Gaming Control Board, says we'll have to see what the long term impact will be on revenues generated in Pennsylvania, as even more casinos open in other states .
 

Medical Marijuana

State lawmakers left for their summer break without a final senate vote on a medical marijuana bill. The bill would create a regulatory framework for growing and prescribing medical cannabis for treatment of a wide range of illnesses. State Senator Mike Folmer believes the committee vote gave it some momentum, but says they have a battle to go forward. The House Republican majority has not supported the measure and the bill goes beyond what Governor Tom Corbett has said he will support.

 

BTE

The Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble is producing a summer time play aimed at kids. The BTE's Richie Cannaday says The Stinky Cheese Man begins Thursday afternoon at the Alvina Krause Theater on Center Street... and runs through the 27th. There is a soft opening for the production this afternoon at 1 O'clock.

 

Summer Concert Series

With temperatures in the upper 70's.... folks made their way last night to Bloomsburg Town Park for the summer concert series.

Top Shelf with classic rock and country from the 50's through the 80's. The Summer Concert Series is funded by the Bloomsburg Town Park Association.

 

Wilkes - Barre Shooting

Police in Wilkes – Barre are investigating a shooting which happened late Wednesday night. Authorities say it happened on Meade Court when a 30 – year old man was shot in the arm. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of the non – life threatening wound. The victim refused to give cops his name... or what led to the shooting late last night in Wilkes – Barre.

 

Sherman Hills Troubles

Wilkes – Barre police are investigating the shooting of two men this week at the troubled Sherman Hills housing complex. Cops were called to Building 328 after there was a reports of shot's fired in an attempted robbery. Meantime... the two men wounded in the shooting were taken to the hospital for treatment.

 

Hazleton Softball

The Hazleton Area School district will soon start advertising for a new varsity girls' softball coach. The School board this week vacated the position... and said they're seeking candidates. The move comes after the PIAA barred coach Vince Trivelpiece from coaching in district two for the 2014 – 15 season. The sanctioning body said Trivelpiece allowed an ineligible to take part in a game.

 

Beltzville Beach

The beach at Beltzville State Park in near-by Carbon County is closed to swimmers. The reason: a high bacteria county contained in water samples. The beach will be closed until tests from water samples come back showing the bacteria has cleared. It's the second time this season that the beach has been closed due to trouble with the water.
