    Snow Storm

    We dodged a bullet.... As a big nor'easter continues to churn off the coast of New England... we're assessing the snowfall received. In the Susquehanna Valley... we got up to six inches... while higher elevations and the Pocono's got more. Now... the forecast is calling for some more light snow by the end of the week.

     

    Emergency Ops Center

    With more snow possible throughout the day in Eastern Pennsylvania, the Wolf Administration is taking steps to make sure they're prepared once the snow stops falling. The Governor has issued a disaster emergency proclamation, mainly as a precautionary move to ensure that personnel, vehicles, and equipment are in place and ready to be activated when and where they're needed. The state's emergency operations center just outside Harrisburg is also up and running, coordinating efforts by the State Police, PennDOT, the Turnpike Commission and the state Health Department.
     

    Falling Snow

    A Pennsylvania state Senator has re-introduced a bill that would require large trucks be cleared of ice and snow. Senator Lisa Boscola says drivers of trucks over 48,000 pounds should face fines for failing to clear accident-causing snow and ice from their vehicles. Her bill asks for a fine up to $1,500 for each offense where snow from a truck strikes another vehicle or pedestrian and causes serious injury or death. The bill has been referred to the Senate Transportation Committee for consideration.
     

    Animals and the Cold

    Cold, snowy weather and animals don't mix. That word from Linda Bird of the Animal Resource Center. Appearing on Monday's edition of the WHLM Morning Buzz.... Ms. Bird telling Joe some precautions to take if the animals usually stay outdoors... such as making sure they have straw and plenty of water. Meantime... the ARC is asking for blankets and sheets for their shelter in the 300 block of Boone Road in Bloomsburg.

     

    Town Park

    The Bloomsburg Town Council says it wants to hear from you.... you're ideas on added activities at the Town Park. The idea came up with discussions with a kayak vendor. Councilperson Diane Levan says how 'bout bicycle rentals.... but not food vendors. You can e-mail your idea's for the park to Town Council through their web site by simply clicking on the contact page.

     

    Drug Bust

    A Heroin ring has been broken up by Berwick Police on Monday. Police Chief Ken Strish says the bust went down in a mobile home in the 100 block of Jessup Street... rented by 36 – year old Bryan Smith. That's when authorities found Smith... 39 – year old Sincere Johnson of New York City... as well as 24 – year old Shannon Schrader of Lime Ridge. Overall nearly 700 packets of Heroin was seized... and $4,800 in cash. All were arraigned and remanded to the Columbia County Prison in Bloomsburg.

     

    Child Abuse Training

    The University of Pittsburgh is among those offering child abuse awareness training in accordance with a law passed in 2014. The School of Social Work at Pitt has developed a free online, three-hour training course, called Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse: Mandated and Permissive Reporting in Pennsylvania. The training is the result of Act 31, which requires licensed professionals who regularly come in contact with children to receive training to spot the signs of abuse or neglect.

     

    Shots Fired

    Hazleton Police are investigating a case where shots were fired into a home early Monday morning. Authorities say five shots were squeezed off... aimed at a home in the 100 block of East 5th Street in Hazleton. Their target, police say, was the man who lived there... but he was not injured. If anyone has any information regarding this incident, contact Hazleton Police.
