Friday / November 21, 2014


Pipeline Meeting

It was decidedly a one -sided meeting... members of the Shale Justice Coalition meeting at the Bloomsburg Fire Hall Thursday night to discuss their concerns about a natural gas pipeline. Oklahoma – based Williams Company wants to route the 42 inch in diameter through the heart of Columbia County. Former BU employee Tom Lyons went one step further.... by calling for the ousting of politicians... no matter what party they belong to. There were no Williams Company employees at last night's meeting.

 

Porngate
More confusion from the State Attorney General's office as officials try to figure out how to deal with the bombastic pornographic email scandal in Harrisburg. WHLM's Brad Christman is reporting it's been a week of confusing messages from the office of state Attorney General Kathleen Kane. On Tuesday night, she appeared on CNN and said the porn emails that have made headlines in Harrisburg included images of children, leading some to ask if this was a criminal case of child porn. By Wednesday, the word was it was not kiddie porn. Also Wednesday, a spokesperson from Kane's office said Kane had decided not to prosecute regarding the emails. And today, spokesperson Renee Martin says she misspoke and no decision has been made. Meanwhile, Kane herself says she can't talk about the emails because of a court order....one that would have been in effect Tuesday night when she went on CNN...to talk about the emails.

 

Obama Immigration

President Obama addressed the Nation Thursday night to announce an executive action on illegal immigration. The illegal immigration issue helped lift former Hazleton mayor Lou Barletta to the U.S. House, and he was among the first to blast President Obama's plan to allow illegal immigrants to stay in America through an executive order that bypasses Congress. Barletta has already introduced a bill that would ban undocumented residents from employment, a bill similar to the controversial law he succeeded in passing in Hazleton, but saw overturned in the courts...

 

Scott Township Budget

Both of the individuals were transported for Geisinger for treatment. The dogs were safely transported from the scene.

 

Investing

There's no shortage of ideas when it comes to investing, but you need to proceed with caution. The state Banking Department is stopping short of calling them scams, but use caution if you're considering binary options and so-called stream-of-income investments. The legalization of medical marijuana in 23 states has also led to the proliferation of some less-than-desirable investments in that industry. And be wary of investing in virtual currency which has experienced wide swings in price and is not backed by the FDIC.
 

Officer Involved Shooting

Charges have been filed stemming from that police involved shooting at a Hanover Township strip mall this week. 30 – year old Bong Bob Kim nearly running over two police officers during an undercover drug investigation.

Columbia County Budget

The Columbia County Commission meets this afternoon... and they're expected to approve the advertising of the 2015 fiscal year budget. Commissioner David Kovach called it a “tight” proposed spending plan.

The group of volunteers always needs you help. They're spiffing up what they have so the boulevard can open on December 6th.


Medicaid Expansion
Governor Tom Corbett fought the federal government for a medicaid expansion plan that met his criteria, but the election of a new governor could mean all that waiting and working might be for naught in the long run. What could have been a simple Medicaid expansion was turned into a complex private insurance - Medicaid hybrid that delayed coverage for up to 600,000 low-income Pennsylvanians by a year. Governor Tom Corbett's Healthy-PA plan hasn't even begun enrollment yet - that starts on December 1st - but already, the new Governor-Elect is apparently looking to dismantle the program. Tom Wolf's transition team has hinted that the new administration plans to scrap Healthy PA and instead expand Medicaid outright.

 

Voter Registration
It's easy to do, you move to a new state and register to vote there, but you forget to cancel your registration in the state you've moved from. Pennsylvania is now in a program to help keep that from happening. Pennsylvania is among 28 states taking part in the Interstate Voter Registration Program to reduce the number of duplicate voter registrations. A list of 43-thousand voters with potential duplicate registrations is being sent to county election offices, asking them to contact voters who appear to have a more recent registration in another state.

PA Fiscal Crisis

The Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center says the state's fiscal crisis should be the first order of business when the new legislative session begins. The current budget deficit is estimated at $1.85-billion and is expected to grow to over $2 1/2 billion within 5 years. Sharon Ward, the Center's Executive Director, says an eroding tax base, is a major cause. Ward says lawmakers have a stark choice when they return next year-massive additional spending cuts, or developing new revenue sources like a tax on natural gas drilling and the elimination of corporate tax loopholes.
 

Airport Back on Line

Things are back up to speed at the Wilkes – Barre / Scranton International airport Wednesday morning. On Tuesday it was a different story. The power was out to the airport... and about 1600 other homes and businesses in the Avoca area. What made things worse... the backup generator at the airport wouldn't come on line... even through it's checked monthly.
