Voter ID

We're a little more than a month away from next month's Pennsylvania primary election... and that means the soft roll out of the state's voter ID law. Columbia County Chief Registrar Matt Rapasky says poll workers will ask for ID... but if you don't have it... that's okay. But come November... if you don't have any picture identification from a governmental agency... you'll be directed to cast a provisional ballot... then show up at the voter office with the proper ID or sign an affidavit swearing you're the person allowed to vote.

 

AGAPE

It's been a long road to recovery for flood victims in Bloomsburg... as well as Columbia and Montour Counties. Faith – based AGAPE was the provider of volunteers and products needed for recovery. But the organization's Cathy Lowe says little more than 200 people have asked for help... but adds more are expected to ask for assistance as the spring weather continues.

 

Traffic Deaths

PennDOT says there were 33 fewer people killed in crashes on state highways in 2011 compared to the previous year. The agency's Barry Schoch said nearly 1,300 people died on state highways last year.

Hazleton Bar Fight

Two men remained locked up at the Luzerne County prison... after they were arrested for assaulting and robbing a man outside a Hazleton bar on North Wyoming Street. 37 – year old Henry Carrasquillo – Diaz and 21 – year old Victor Cruz – Romero... both of Puerto Rico... and now living in Hazleton... face a long list of charges. The pair is accused of beating and robbing a man outside the Penn Palace bar early Sunday morning. They are also accused of firing shots at the Pine Street Playground in Hazleton.

 

Luzerne Tax Collectors

The Luzerne County Council says it may look into a contractor to collect taxes... cutting out elected municipal collectors. Council Chairman Jim Boback says lawmakers will need to find out first if the county has the ability to do it... and if a private company could do it cheaper. Whatever the case... the move could save Luzerne County hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.

 

Firefighter Money

The Hunlock Creek Volunteer Fire Company... in Luzerne County... will receive nearly $30,000 from the Federal Emergency management agency.
