    Block Party

    The annual rite of passage is just around the corner. Block party in Bloomsburg takes place April 18th.... and due to new zoning restrictions... huge gatherings are not anticipated. Bloomsburg Police Chief Roger Van Loan says the usual compliment of officers will be supplemented by others. Chief Van Loan says there will be extra cars from out of town agencies... as well as a horse patrol to keep party goers in line.

     

    PASHEE Cops

    Where can Bloomsburg University police... and cops at 13 other state-owned schools have arrest powers. Now... there's proposed legislation in Harrisburg that seeks to clarify where campus police have authority. The bill states that the arrest powers of campus police extend to the roads and grounds that surround the state schools. It's the result of an October DUI arrest where the judge threw out the case because it involved a campus police officer in a location just off campus. The bill seeks to close a loophole created by that case, clearly spelling out where the powers of campus police officers can be carried out.

     

    Berwick Bust

    Three Berwick residents have been arrested and are now facing a long list of drug charges. Berwick Police Chief Ken Strish says the arrests this week of David Bomboy... Rebecca Ohl and Pamela Sponenberg capped an undercover investigation. It all went down Monday when Bomboy and Sponenberg were taken into custody as they left a Berwick apartment following a controlled buy of cocaine. Police then discovered Ohl and plenty of alleged drug paraphernalia. The trio was arraigned before a District Justice where bail was set at a half – million dollars for Bomboy... and $50,000 each for Sponenberg and Ohl. All are in the Columbia County Prison in Bloomsburg.

     

    PPL Request

    Starting the first of 2016... we could be seeing high PPL bills. The Allentown – Based utility is asking the state Public Utility Commission to okay a proposed rate increase.

    Revenue Budget

    The Acting Revenue Secretary going before the Senate Appropriations Committee as budget hearings continue. WHLM's David Payne is reporting Secretary Eileen McNulty spent much of the hearing defending Governor Tom Wolf's proposed 50 percent reduction in local property taxes, saying the formula used to come up with the cuts was fair and equitable, based in current state law. She also defended the Governor's plan for a 5-percent severance tax on Marcellus Shale drilling, with some Senators predicting it won't produce the billion-dollars in yearly revenue the Governor is predicting.

     

    Mifflinville / Memorial Day

    Plans are well underway for the annual Memorial Day weekend in Mifflinville.
