    Roundtable Discussions
    Governor Tom Wolf has held a series of roundtable discussions statewide on opioid addiction. WHLM's Brad Christman tells us why the Governor believes this is a major issue to be tackled head on. Governor Wolf's most recent opioid roundtable was held in southeastern Pennsylvania late last week - bringing the total to about a dozen and a half events statewide. While the word "crisis" is often overused, the governor says that is not the case with Pennsylvania's opioid crisis, which claimed more Pennsylvanians' lives in 2014 than traffic accidents. The governor says Pennsylvania has lost many good people - those who simply have a brain that is wired a certain way to make it vulnerable to opioid addiction...

     

    Returning to Civilian Life
    A bill in the state House would help military members and their spouses clear one hurdle in returning to civilian life. The bill would expedite teacher certification applications for military members, veterans, and their spouses. It also reduces the application fee for this group from upwards of one hundred dollars to just ten dollars. Teaching is at the top of the list of military spouses' professions...and a number of veterans will use their GI Bill benefits to pursue a degree in teaching.

    Gas Price

    The price of what we pay at the gas pumps is going up. The latest Triple A Fuel Gauge report shows... drivers in Columbia and Montour County's are paying an average of $2.43 a gallon for self – serve, unleaded regular. A week ago the price averaged $2.39 a gallon.... and a month ago the average price stood at $2.80. The reason according to oil industry analysts is the rising cost of a barrel of crude.

     

    Getting Ready for Warm Weather
    Last weekend felt more like mid-March than mid-May, with temperatures stuck in the 50s and rainy conditions statewide...but, our luck could finally be changing. High temperatures by now should be averaging in the mid 70s... and it appears that weather may actually start to act like it should as we approach the Memorial Day weekend. In fact temps could rise above normal with highs near or even above 80. The humidity is also expected to increase, and with that will come a daily chance of afternoon thunderstorms during the holiday weekend.
