    Our Town / Bloomsburg

    The tape has been shot... the material turned in... and now it's up to the producers and editors of the WVIA – TV “Our Town” series to put it all together. After two community meetings last month... on – camera interviews were held Saturday to fill in the blanks of the subjects put forth. Producer Lisa Mazzarella says what video stays or goes in the final production is a tough job. “Our Town” Bloomsburg will make it's debut December 4th starting at 7 O'clock... on WVIA... Public Television for Northeastern PA.

     

    Frein Search

    The search continues in near by Pike County for 31-year-old Eric Frein. He's suspected of ambushing two Pennsylvania Sate Troopers, killing one and seriously wounding the other. Lt. Col. George Bivens says possible sightings of Frein continue... including one close to the high school he attended. The shootings took place at the Blooming Grove Barracks six weeks ago.

     

    Frein Hearings
    A state lawmaker is calling for a hearing on the State Police handling of September's deadly ambush outside a Pike County barracks and the search for suspected shooter Eric Frein. Sen. Lisa Baker, whose district includes the search area, is calling for a joint hearing of the Law and Justice and Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committees. The hearing will take place after Eric Frein is caught, and will examine such issues as communication, police tactics and practices, and how law enforcement interacted with the local community. Baker says the Chairmen of both committees are on board.

     

    Ebola Scare

    Pennsylvania officials are stepping up preparedness and responding to concerns about Ebola. State health officials are reviewing and assessing procedures and equipment in case any suspected cases of Ebola were to turn up in PA. They did confirm that three Pennsylvanians were on the same plane from Cleveland to Dallas as a nurse who tested positive for Ebola. They were still in Texas being monitored, are not under quarantine and have no symptoms.

     

    Danville Flood Control

    The Borough of Danville is still trying to recover from the floods produced by Tropical Storm Lee in September of 2011. Administrator Dan Knorr says the repair to the flood control areas along the 800 block of Continental Boulevard is coming along well and should be wrapped late this month or early next. Knorr says once repairs are made... a weak spot in the flood control system will be eliminated.

     

    Act 47 / Distressed Cities

    State lawmakers have approved a bill making some major changes in the state's distressed municipalities law. Among the changes to Act 47 are early intervention efforts and new deadlines to help municipalities emerge from distressed status. They were developed through the work of a task force that reviewed the law. The bill also gives distressed cities more flexibility to raise revenue. But Pittsburgh area lawmakers complained their city is excluded from the changes.

     

    Pocono Raceway

    You'll soon start to see some improvements around Pocono Raceway thanks to a million dollar Economic Growth Initiative grant doled out by Governor Corbett. The familiar black and white entrance to the 2-and-a-half mile speedway will soon be gone... and Pocono's 50 – year old tunnel will be rebuilt... in essence taller... allowing for today's modern transporters to get in and out of the infield more quickly. The work begins this week... and will be completed before the racing season begins next spring.

     

    State House

    The state Senate has gone home until after the election but the house has some loose ends to tie up with concurrence votes scheduled today on several bills. WHLM's Cathy Clark reports one deals with a controversial gun amendment. Supporters say giving groups like the NRA the legal standing to sue local governments over strict gun laws allows organizations to step in on behalf of a citizen who feels a local law violates their second amendment right. But opponents say the bill was done to punish and intimidate local governments and will leave the taxpayers footing the bill for any damages awarded.

     

    White Haven Crash

    Police in White Haven are still trying to figure out what caused the driver of a pick up truck to slam into a home in lower Luzerne County early Sunday morning. After impact... the driver fled, but was later captured. However, two people in the truck were air lifted to a hospital. No one was at home when the accident took place.

     

    Hazleton Crash

    A mini – van crashed into a Hazleton home around dawn Saturday morning... doing considerable amount of damage to the Church Street structure. Thus far... Hazleton police aren't saying much about the crash. The mini van smashing into the home's awning and gas meter... but there was no gas leak according to UGI. The accident remains under investigation.

     

    Unemployment Rate

    The unemployment rate in Pennsylvania has declined by one tenth of a percentage point last month. The PA Department of Labor and Industry says the state's jobless rate for September is 5.7 per cent. That is two – tenths of a percentage point below the US rate of 5-point-9 percent. Since September 2013, the state rate was down by 1.6 percentage points. The state says the civilian labor force – the number of people working or looking for work – was essentially unchanged in September. Employment rose by 11,000 persons while unemployment was down 8,000.
