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...

The majority will travel by car, encouraged mainly by lower gasoline prices. Tidwell says motorists will be paying the lowest price at the pump since 2009. With messy weather in the forecast for Wednesday, the best advice for travelers is to plan ahead and pack your patience.

 

Gas Prices

State Health Centers
The Corbett administration has to come up with a plan to reopen state health centers after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled it can't close any of its 60 public health clinics statewide. The state's high court sided with nurses and Democratic state lawmakers recently when five out of six justices agreed the administration must stop shuttering clinics that provide services like flu vaccines and STD testing to rural areas. 16 health centers have closed since last year. The Corbett administration had planned to close 26 out of 60 health centers to cut costs. It's unclear how soon any of the closed centers can reopen as many have lost leases in the buildings where they were operating...

A meteorologist keeping an eye on the situation says a cold front coming in from the west will collide with warm, moist air from the south... which will leave 1 to 3 inches of snow in Columbia and Montour Counties.

Click It or Ticket

With the holiday's arriving shortly... PennDOT and it's partners is taking part in the National “Click It or Ticket” traffic enforcement campaign.

State Financial Outlook
The head of the Pennsylvania Fiscal Office is painting a less than encouraging picture of Pennsylvania's financial outlook. The state budget is more than $1.8-billion in the red, a figure expected to top $2 billion by the end of the fiscal year. Matthew Knittel, Director of the Independent Fiscal Office, says many factors are to blame, including a dwindling tax base. In addition, older Pennsylvanians make fewer purchases which affects sales tax revenue. He also points to the switch to cell phones means less revenue from land lines.

Lame Duck Legislative Session

He calls that proposal-quote-"inappropriate, unprecedented and inexcusable."

 

Dick Knoebel

Knoebels amusement resort sits on the Columbia – Northumberland County line... and was first opened in 1926. The award make Otto Kurecian of the Columbia – Montour Visitors Bureau pretty happy. Serving an estimated 1- million visitors a season... Knoebels is one of a few parks that do no charge admission to get through the gate.

 

State Unemployment

The State Department of Labor and Industry says Pennsylvania's job market emerged from a slumber in October. They say hiring picked up and the unemployment rate dropped to a six-year low... checking in at 5 -point four percent.. three – tenths of a percentage point lower. A confluence of events — retailers and shipping companies gearing up for the holiday season, lower gasoline prices, plus improvements in the housing market — fed last month's gains and positive growth,

 

Changes to a State Agency
A big change is coming to a major state agency. It's the day that the state Department of Public Welfare ceremoniously becomes the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. The name change was approved by the legislature, but lawmakers took steps to minimize the costs, saying the department would still use old letterhead and other office materials until they are phased out and replaced with the new name and logo. That logo will be unveiled during a ceremony Monday in Harrisburg. The name change was brought on by the sentiment that the name "welfare" carries a stigma in today's age, and the word does not begin to describe the scope of the services handled by the massive department. Most other states have also migrated away from the name "welfare" in their counterpart agencies.

 

Antibiotics Overuse

The effort is part of Get Smart About Antibiotics Week which runs through this Sunday. This is one of 16 state-based efforts funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
