    Winter Storm Warning

    We are under a Winter Storm Warning in Columbia and Montour Counties... as well as all of eastern Pennsylvania. The National Weather Service in State College tells us the storm is just off the Atlantic Coast... and it will move northward spreading moderate to heavy snow across Southern and Eastern PA.

    Accumulations will be generally 3 to 7 inches... more in the higher mountain elevations.

     

    Road Priorities

    The first major snow storm of the season will be visiting us sometime Wednesday. For most of the Susquehanna Valley... we'll remain under a Winter Storm Warning through Wednesday morning. But, the folks who will get a workout today are PennDOT equipment operators. PennDOT's David Thompson says they do place a priority of pre – treating and plowing roads. Thousands of tons of road salt and pre – treat are in storage area's across District 3... which includes Columbia County... for use on the highways.

     

    Crispin Field Fire

    A malfunctioning furnace is being blamed for a fire Tuesday which damaged the visitors' field house at Crispin Field in Berwick. The Press – Enterprise is reporting in Wednesday edition firemen were called to the field around 12:45 Tuesday afternoon when someone saw smoke coming from the building.

    Run for the Diamonds

    The 105th edition of Berwick's Run for the Diamonds is on tap for Thursday. The 9 mile trek through Berwick and Briar Creek Township is a long – held tradition. Appearing on Tuesday's edition of the WHLM Morning Buzz... organizer Margaret Livsey says she has an estimated 12 – hundred participants signed up... about a hundred less than last year. But, more runners are expected to sign up. Our live coverage of this year's Run for the Diamonds in Berwick begins at 10 O'clock Thursday morning on the WHLM Stations... anchored by Jim Doyle and Larry Hopper.

     

    Safe Cooking
    They say it's a delicious way to cook a turkey, but it can also be very dangerous. It's becoming a holiday tradition, right along with the wishbone and football on TV...it's the Thanksgiving warning about the dangers of frying a turkey. Don't overfill the fryer with oil; keep it far from your home, garage or deck; have a fire extinguisher standing by; and call 9-1-1 immediately if something goes wrong. The state Fire Commissioner's office actually warns against trying to fry your turkey in oil, saying there are alternative oil less cookers on the market...

     

    Hazleton Fatal

    Hazleton Police are investigating the death of a 71 – year old woman killed when she was clipped by a sports utility vehicle at the corner of South Church Street near West Chapel. Police have not identified the woman who died... they did say the woman was crossing Church Street. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman driving the SUV was taken to a Hazleton area hospital for treatment.

     

    Name Change for State Agency
    A state agency has made its name-change official. The state Department of Public Welfare is now officially the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. The campaign to drop “welfare” from the agency's name goes back years. The agency recently unveiled the new logo. The old name and logo will be around for a little while though as the department burns through its remaining stationary and letterhead.

     

    Transition Troubles
    The Corbett administration is sparring with the incoming team for Governor-elect Tom Wolf. The battleground is the pending implementation of the program to expand Medicaid dollars for low-income Pennsylvanians. Governor-elect Tom Wolf favors full Medicaid expansion... Governor Tom Corbett opted for a hybrid program that uses the additional dollars for private health insurance. With only 8 weeks left in office, the Corbett administration is charging ahead with its alternative, known as Healthy PA. That's against the wishes of the next governor but policy experts say it won't be hard for Wolf's team to switch to a full Medicaid expansion next year...

     

    Chop Shop Operation

    Four people are behind bars after they were arrested on multiple charges of selling eight automobiles.. valued at more than a quarter – million dollars in the Hazleton area.
