    I – 80 Paving

    Expect a long traffic back- up... as work continues this morning on a $2.6 – million dollar resurfacing project in the westbound lane of Interstate 80 near Buckhorn. The work includes milling and paving 5 miles in both lanes from Fishing Creek Bridge to the Montour County line. Prime contractor Glenn Hawbaker, Inc., is using two 12-hour shifts and working non-stop from Sunday evening to Friday at noon. Beginning Monday...

    Fire Engine

    It sits in it's bay at the Bloomsburg Fire Department on Market Street... a brand new $671,000 piece of firefighting apparatus. The KME – produced machine is for dual purpose use.... as a rescue truck due to a built in aerial ladder... as well as a pumper... so says Fire Chief Bob Rupp. Chief Rupp says he expects to have the new unit in service within two weeks... once equipment is stored on board... and crews trained.

     

    Auto Recalls

    The large number of auto recalls don't seem to be having a negative impact. John Devlin, President of the Pennsylvania Automotive Association, says dealerships have been busier than ever handing recall-related repairs, but from what he's heard, there's been minimal negative feedback from car owners. Those who do get a recall notice are advised to act quickly, even if that means you'll have wait a few weeks for an appointment. Despite the recalls, auto sales continue at a brisk pace.
     

    No Lawsuit Expected

    Governor Tom Corbett blocked some legislative spending with his line item veto of budget items earlier this month, but despite some rumbling from lawmakers, he doesn't expect a court battle. It's not the Governor's veto of legislative spending in the budget that got leadership talking about the possibility of a lawsuit, but his decision to veto $7.2 - million in earmarks for things like lawmakers' parking, sewage planning and natural gas research. House and Senate leaders say he overstepped his constitutional authority when he struck those items from another bill. But Governor Tom Corbett told reporters he doesn't think a lawsuit is likely.
     

    Merck

    Merck & Co. says it will terminate 8,500 workers company – wide as it tries to slash 2 and a half billion dollars in costs. A company spokesman says 600 jobs will be eliminated in North Wales and Lansdale in southeastern PA. Employees losing their jobs would be mostly field-based salespeople who call on family doctors and medical facilities. The cuts were disclosed in an official notice posted on the state Department of Labor and Industry website.

     

    PA Lottery

    With the Pennsylvania Lottery coming off a record year in sales, one state lawmaker says the effort to turn it over to private hands is likely dead. Sen. John Blake, Democratic Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, says he doesn't expect the Corbett Administration to pursue the issue any further, following criticism from the Treasurer and Attorney General, not to mention opposition in the House and Senate. Record sales likely silenced privatization talk once and for all, with the Lottery generating $3.8 billion in 2013-2014.

     

    Revenge Porn Law

    Some questions are being raised about the effectiveness of a new revenge porn law signed by the Governor earlier this month. Advocates for cyber civil rights believe PA's new revenge porn ban is too narrow. They say restricting it to lovers or ex lovers leaves out others who post explicit pictures of people without their consent. They also believe proving intent as required by the law will be problematic. Revenge porn usually refers to explicit photos or videos disseminated by intimate partners to punish the person depicted.

     

    Tom Wolf

    Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf met with journalists at the start of the weekend. He said he would make a centerpiece of his first budget proposal an increase in income taxes on Pennsylvania's higher-earners. It would help expand the state's share of public education funding in exchange for a dollar-for-dollar reduction in local property taxes levied by school boards.
