    Wolf Campaign

    Democratic Gubernatorial candidate came a callin' on Bloomsburg Wednesday. With a couple of dozen supporters outside Democratic headquarters on Main Street... Tom Wolf stepping off his bus which is taking him across the state. A short speech led to questions by reporters... especially the Corbett campaign's claim that Mr. Wolf would raise taxes. Wolf said that's not the case and it's just the spin of a desperate Corbett campaign. Wolf's entourage was greeted by Bloomsburg resident Dave McElwee.. a staunch Corbett supporter... who drove to the event in his restored military truck. And with less than a week before voters go to the polls.... Wolf still holds a commanding 13 percentage point lead according to a Franklin and Marshall College poll.

     

    Obama Approval Ratings Effect Races

    President Obama's approval ratings remain low in Pennsylvania according to the latest Franklin and Marshall poll. WHLM's Cathy Clark looks at how that could impact the upcoming election. Only one in three registered Pennsylvania voters believe President Obama is doing an excellent or good job and only half of registered Democrats give him a favorable rating. Franklin and Marshall College Poll Director Terry Madonna says those numbers could hurt Democrats. But he thinks the bigger impact will be outside PA, with Republicans likely to gain the U S Senate and pick up additional seats in the house.

     

    Flood Wall

    Folks who live on the west and south side of Bloomsburg received an update Wednesday night dealing with that proposed flood wall designed to protect Autoneum and the former Windsor Food plant in the event of high water. SEDA – Cog's Glenda Ruch says items are falling into place... and rather quickly.

    That means by mid January... the bids for construction should be in.... and ground broken in mid – March on the $30 – million project.

     

    Tax Assessment Appeals

    Day two of tax assessment appeals will be held at the Columbia County Courthouse Thursday. Commissioner David Kovach says the process is designed for property owners who believe their tax assessment is too high... and are seeking to have it lowered. But Kovach says when you come before the board... you'd better have your facts and figures together. During the first day of hearings Wednesday... the board... made up by the commissioners... did lower some assessment... but stood firm on others.

     

    Gas Prices

    The end of the summer driving season and switch to winter blends has helped push gas prices down around the three dollar mark. But, other factors are in play. The large increase in U S production of oil is a significant factor in lower prices at the pump according to Rayola Dougher, senior economist for the American Petroleum Institute. She says hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling along with more efficiency in extracting oil and gas are making a difference. But she says long term strategy is needed to keep up the pace.

     

    Prescription Drug Monitoring
    It's the final piece of Governor Tom Corbett's Healthy PA plan and it has now become law. A board will oversee the establishment and management of the Achieving Better Care by Monitoring All Prescriptions Program. It's expected to take until June to have the database in operation. Dr. Karen Rizzo, President of the Pennsylvania Medical Society, says the idea is to help doctors spot people who may be addicted to prescription narcotics, so the patient can get help before possibly moving on to illegal drugs like heroin.

     

    Frein Search

    State police involved in the search for an alleged cop killer have sent that high – flying balloon back to the Ohio Department of Transportation. It was believed the tethered balloon... equipped with cameras... would help in the search for Eric Frein. But it didn't... due to the tree canopy and terrain. Meantime... despite 150 officers in the field.... Frein remains on the run... six weeks after allegedly killing a state trooper... and critically wounding a second.

     

    Stabbing

    A 15 – year old juvenile is accused of stabbing his former nurse inside her Wilkes – Barre home earlier this week. Documents show Ryan Vincent of Edwardsville got inside the Stanley Street home of the woman... grabbed a knife... and allegedly stabbed her a half – dozen times before fleeing. The still unidentified woman was treated and released from a hospital. The teen is facing a long list of charges... and remains in the Luzerne County Jail.

     

    Alleged Theft

    A former manager of a Plains Township Dairy Queen is free on bail after accused of taking thousands of dollars. 27 – year old Joseph Brower of Hunlock Creek is believed to have made off with an estimated $9,000 last month. In addition to the cash theft... it's believed Brower made off with food from the business
