    Fourth of July Holiday

    Traffic is already picking up as people head to their destinations for the 4th of July holiday weekend... Nearly 42-million people are expected to travel this holiday weekend nationwide, up seven-tenths of a percent from last year. One reason--- lower gas prices... about a dollar lower than they were last year at this time. One-point-five million Pennsylvanians are expected to travel by car this weekend.

     

    Berwick 4th of July Celebration

    There are big doin's in Berwick Saturday... as the Borough celebrates the 4th of July. The Stuart Tank... produced at the former A-C- &-F facility... will be the focal point of this year's celebration. County Commissioner David Kovach heading up the “Bring Stuie Home” campaign tells us a down payment has been placed on one of the Berwick – built tanks found in England. 15,000 of the tanks were made at the ACF plant... which employed 9,000 people during World War Two. Once back in Berwick... the tank will be on permanent display at the entrance to the BIDA Complex at Third and Oak Streets.

     

    BUI / DUI

    This holiday weekend... officials want to remind you that if you wouldn't have a drink and get behind the wheel of a car.... you shouldn't get behind the wheel of a boat either. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will have conservation officers monitoring the waterways this weekend to prevent people from boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol... and also to keep those same people from driving when they come ashore. Officials say when boating... you have to think of the people around you just as if you were driving on a road...and for that..it's best to be alert.

     

    Criminal Mischief

    Police in Locust Township are looking for the driver of a four wheel drive vehicle. That person is wanted for questioning stemming from donuts left on the JV Football practice field at the Southern Columbia High School. Through their Facebook page... cops say someone got on the field through a creek bed... caused some damage... leaving the area through the creek bed... to Hemlock drive... then heading towards Elysburg on State Route 487. If you have information about the Criminal Mischief... give Locust Township police a call.

     

    Privatization of State Stores

    Privatization of the sale of wine and liquor in Pennsylvania is on hold for now, following Governor Wolf's veto of the Republican-backed plan. The plan would have phased out state stores by opening up the sale of wine and spirits to private stores, bars, and other businesses already selling beer. Republican supporters say the state shouldn't be in the business of selling alcohol, especially when it's standing in the way of customer convenience. But Democrats sympathetic to state store employee unions say modernization could make wine and liquor purchases more convenient without dismantling the state system.
     

    New Budget Talks

    Budget talks are set to continue Monday, but political experts are warning not to expect a final budget any time soon. Governor Wolf ran on a platform of enacting a natural gas severance tax and increasing funding for education...which he didn't get in the Republicans' budget he vetoed. Now Republicans are likely to push their proposed pension reforms in future talks. Political analyst Dr. Terry Madonna says both sides seem to be digging their heels in...and without any serious consequences of a late spending plan...there will be no pressure to finish this budget.

     

    Stuff the Bus

    Although area schools have just let out for the summer.... there's one Berwick organization looking forward to the start of the 2015 school year. The Berwick Area United Way is launching their annual “stuff the bus” campaign. The organization's Ginny Crake says it's all in an effort by area businesses to help kids get a leg up on the year. The goal this year is to place 550 backpacks filled with supplies into the hands of students in the Berwick Area district... as well as kids attending Central, Bloomsburg and Northwest.

     

    Mifflinville Project

    Navigating the lane closures near the Mifflinville River Bridge Project in the Westbound lanes of Interstate 80 was tough this week... just wait until Monday. Starting that day... PennDOT says a daylight signing patter will be used to close alternating lanes of I-80 westbound. The big reason is so the contractor can perform temporary pavement removal and shoulder back up operations near the bridge.

    And... as per usual... the westbound lanes of 80 near Mifflinville will be bumper to bumper. Alternate routes are advised.

     

    Lycoming Fatal

    Authorities say a North Carolina mother is dead... and her two children critically injured following a crash on Interstate 180 near the Lycoming County Mall. The Lycoming County Coroner says 32 – year old Brittany Sanuffer from Dunn, North Carolina.. lost control of her SUV... and rolled over in the median. She was not wearing her seat belt. Her two kids were buckled up... and were airlifted to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. The investigation into that fatal crash in Lycoming County remains under investigation.

     

    Hazleton Shootings

    Hazleton Police have busted two men after two separate shootings this week. Police say Christian Ashby of Hazleton... and Michael Shirley of New York City are accused of carrying weapons without a license. The pair admitting to squeezing off a round at the scene of Wednesday's shooting along north Green Street. However, they're not charged directly with the shooting of two people.

     

    Moon Park

    The state now owns a plot of real estate. Moon Lake Park near Plymouth is now owned by the Department of Forestry. The park had belonged to Luzerne County... who failed to preform maintenance. State Senator John Yudichak fought to transfer the former county park to state control. The state plans to add new parking lots, improve trails, and better maintain the area.
