    I-80 Accident

    Problems this afternoon on Interstate 80. First responders are on the scene of an accident in the westbound lane of Interstate 80... in the westbound lane near Mifflinville. There are reports two people are trapped in one vehicle. Two Lifeflight have been called. Right now, traffic in the westbound lane has come to a crawl... and traffic in the eastbound lane has slowed as well due to rubbernecking drivers. We're keeping an eye on the situation.

     

    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. Commissioners say they're not getting the money needed from cell phones operating in the area... and it appears the expected cost of the Snutti – Spencer murder trial has already in the budget... again... without the need for a property tax increase.

     

    Moxie / Salem Twp

    The Salem Township Supervisors have given their okay for a conditional use permit to a company who wants to build a natural gas fuel plan... producing 900 megawatts of electricity. Folks who live in the township aren't happy about the approval and the proposed plant from Moxie Energy.

     

    Great American Smokeout
    The 39th Annual Great American Smokeout is Thursday. The message on this Great American Smokeout day is clear... stop smoking and using tobacco for one day, and hopefully you'll never want it again. A number of events are planned statewide Thursday. The American Cancer Society is also pushing for a stronger Indoor Air law in PA... as well as a tax on non-cigarette products like smokeless tobacco.

     

    Christmas Boulevard

    The Berwick Jaycee's building on Mulberry Street near Crispin Field is a buzz of activity. That's where organizations and civic groups meet just about every day to work on the 2014 edition of the annual Christmas Boulevard. Travis Petty is organizing this year's fix up, paint up project. 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. Those notified will remain on the rolls for two additional federal elections.

     

    Officer Involved Shooting

    An officer involved shooting in Hanover Township near Wilkes – Barre Wednesday afternoon. Now... the Luzerne County D-A and state police are trying to figure out if the shooting was justified. The incident happening in the parking lot of a shopping plaza on Carey Avenue in Hanover Township.

    Not much is being said... but there is confirmation that a man was shot... and a police officer pulled the trigger. The man is expected to be okay.

     

    Shenandoah Drug Bust

    47 suspected drug dealers are off the street... following a raid yesterday in Shenandoah. Overall.. 92 warrants were issued by two district justices. The raid was conducted by federal, state, county and municipal officers. Following arraignment... many of the suspected drug dealers were transported to the Schuylkill County Jail.

     

    Sex Charges

    A Luzerne County woman will be tried after she was charged with allegedly sexually assaulting a 12 – year old boy. The ruling dealing with 41 – year old Sharon Bentler of Edwardsville took place yesterday during her preliminary hearing.
