    Fairground Injury

    An employee of Reithoffer Shows... the supplier of rides to the Bloomsburg Fair... is recovering at the Geisinger Medical Center from injuries sustained in a work – related accident Tuesday. 23 – year old Brae Landis was in a bucket inspecting the Skyride... when his loose clothing became entangled in a guide wheel. Ride operator Rick Reithoffer telling our media partner Newswatch 16 that the accident was not due to a malfunction of the ride, but rather Landis not paying attention. Landis received a severely lacerated neck. He was transported to Geisinger by ground. The ride is expected to open on time Friday afternoon.

     

    Suspect Sought

    Pennsylvania State Police have issued an arrest warrant for a 31 – year old Canadensis man... now accused of murdering one state trooper and critically wounded another. State Police say Matthew Eric Frien is believe the man who pulled the trigger of a .308 caliber rifle... which killed 38 – year old Corporal Bryon Dickson.... and wounded Trooper Alex Douglass last Friday night. The shooting took place during shift change at the Blooming Grove State Police Barracks in Pike County. Frein became the main suspect when a resident walking a dog two miles from the barracks spotted a vehicle in a pond. Evidence found inside include shell casings that matched the bullets recovered in the shooting... as well as a drivers license and social security card. At last word... Frein is not in custody... and is considered armed and dangerous.

     

    Our Town / Bloomsburg

    Showcasing Bloomsburg on WVIA's Our Town series. There is a meeting Wednesday night... dealing with the stories and the production taking place to make sure the show is a success. WVIA Producer Lisa Mazzarella says the “white board” meeting is designed to put stories in the hands of community residents. Wednesday night's meeting gets underway at 6:30 at the Caldwell Consistory on the square in Bloomsburg. Our Town / Bloomsburg is scheduled to air December 4th.

     

    Line of Credit

    Pennsylvania is borrowing from the state treasury, taking advantage of a line of credit after the government's main bank account balance hit a ten year low. Now, there's disagreement over the whether the timing is a sign of a bigger problem. The state has used short term financing at least 17 times over the last 20 years according to Jay Pagni, spokesman for Governor Tom Corbett. He says it has nothing to do with the integrity or structure of the budget. But Treasurer Rob McCord and Auditor General Eugene DePasquale say its a big deal because of the timing. McCord says the use of the credit line is prudent but the early need for it is alarming.

     

    Nuclear Plant

    PPL's Steam Electric station in Salem Township... north of Berwick... has been removed from the list of six most – watched nuclear power plants. The big reason... the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says plant management has taken sufficient action to take care of the issues plaguing the Unit two reactor... as well as unplanned shutdowns. A report from the NRC on Monday indicated the additional scrutiny is no longer needed.

     

    State Spending
    State house and senate panels tackled property tax reform, spending limits and debt reduction Tuesday. It's called the Taxpayers Protection Act and it got through the state senate finance committee on a 7 to 4 vote. Senator Mike Folmer says it would limit, not reduce the growth of state spending, based on the lesser of three thresholds. It would require future excess funds to be divided between the rainy day fund and unfunded pension liabilities with the rest returned to taxpayers.

     

    Berwick United Way

    It's a big task... but a lot of non – profit agencies are depending on the Berwick Area United Way. They've recently launched a campaign to raise an estimated $450,000 by the end of the year. One agency dependent on United Way funding is the Berwick Salvation Army headed by Lt. Kevin Polito. In particular... the Salvation Army is dependent on United Way funding for their comprehensive emergency services program.... designed to help folks who are in need of food, shelter and heat.

     

    Teachers & Weapons

    Legislation which would allow teachers and other school personnel in Pennsylvania to carry guns at work is drawing a mixed reaction. At a Senate Education Committee hearing, Sen. Donald White, the prime sponsor, said the bill would give schools more options for protecting students, as well as aiding law enforcement especially in rural areas, where response times can be longer. But Sen. Anthony Williams said it's a bad idea to place this responsibility on those whose principal interest is educating children. He adds that even persons with the highest level of firearms training make mistakes, sometimes with tragic consequences.
     

    Medical Marijuana
    A bill to legalize medical marijuana in Pennsylvania is awaiting a vote in the state Senate. Supporters say the active ingredient in marijuana can aid in the treatment of a number of conditions, as well as helping the body tolerate the effects of drugs for cancer or HIV. Those opposed say legalizing pot sends the wrong message about drug use and increases the potential for abuse. The bill's co-sponsor Sen. Daylin Leach, says he expects passage in the Senate, but adds he knows there are many opponents, including Gov. Tom Corbett.

     

    Coaldale Mayor

    The former mayor of Coaldale will spend the next nine months to three years in state prison. 75 – year old Richard Corkery was convicted in Carbon County court Tuesday after being found guilty earlier this year of watching child pornography on his work computer.

     

    Wilkes – Barre Police Chief

    The Wilkes – Barre Police Department has a new acting chief. Robert Hughes, Jr. was named to the job by Mayor Tom Leighton. He replaces Gerard Dessoye who retired following a 33 year career and is now the head of security at King's College. Now... the search is on for a replacement for Dessoye.

     

    University of Pennsylvania

    Bloomsburg University... didn't make the list.... but one PA University did. The men's magazine Playboy has released their ultra scientific list of the top party schools and the University of Pennsylvania takes the number one spot. This year is the first time Penn has even appeared on the list. Editors apparently consider many factors including, access to nightlife and musical events and creativity when planning social gatherings.
