Primary Election Returns

A political newcomer will be the apparent next mayor of Bloomsburg after winning the Democratic nomination during Tuesday's primary election. Complete, but unofficial returns show that Sandy Davis is the top vote getter over two other candidates seeking the office. Davis getting 49% of the vote... compared to current Bloomsburg Town Councilman Eric Bower who got 30% .... and current Council Vice – Chair Diane Levan who received 19% of the vote. Bower said he's disappointed in the outcome, but has two more years on council to make a difference. Current Mayor Dan Knorr backed Levan in her bid for the Town's top job... and it was somewhat of a bittersweet night. As of now... Ms. Davis isn't expected to challenged in the November general election since there are no Republicans stepping up to the plate.

 

Partial Structure collapse

A structural engineer is expected to be at a building Wednesday afternoon that used to be an ice house in the 200 block of East 7th Street of Bloomsburg. That after a couple of dozen bricks fell from the rear of the building... and was witnessed by a man waiting for his wife to come out of work... so says Fire Chief Bob Rupp. The department  along with police and code enforcement responded. No other bricks fell from the two story structure... but people living in an apartment in the front of the building were evacuated and found lodging elsewhere.

 

Wellness Center

It was about a week ago... the Central Columbia School District broke ground on a $1.5 million dollar health and wellness center. The project using donations and corporate gifts to pay for the facility... and is not using taxpayer dollars. But Superintendent Harry Mathias says Bucknell University Sociology professor Dr. Carl Milofsky has been called in to study the health and wellness of the participants over the next three years and deliver a series of reports to Superintendent Mathias. The center is expected to be open in 2014.

 

Celebrate Friday

Downtown Bloomsburg, Incorporated is trying to bring some life into the business district downtown with Celebrate Friday. That features discounts on purchases, but according to DBI manager Adrienne Mael there's a little something extra such as special programs on Center Street... just off of Main. Friday, June 7th will find activities for kids... including a visit from Pickles the Clown. July... according to Ms. Mael... will be a patriotic themed event.

 

Lansford Meth Lab

Police in Lansford... in Carbon County... arresting three people following an explosion late Sunday night in a home. That explosion at a house on East Patterson Street was believed to be sparked by people manufacturing meth. Now... two men and a woman face charges.

 

School Cops

We could soon see the Hazleton Area School District with their own police force... if they apply and receive grants to hire school resource officers. The district's Maryanne Petrilla says the district plans to apply for grants... Butler Township is applying for money for two officers... one to patrol the Drums Elementary Middle School... and a new school opening later this year at the CAN DO Corporate Center.

 

PennDOT / Click It 

PennDOT says it will partner with more than 600 law enforcement agencies and the Pennsylvania State Police to participate in a national “Click It or Ticket” seat-belt enforcement effort through June 9th. The effort will focus largely on nighttime enforcement, using traffic safety checkpoints and roving patrols. Police will also use Traffic Enforcement Zones, which combine roving patrol and checkpoint tactics on roadways with high numbers of unbuckled crashes. According to PennDOT data, 503 people died last year in unbelted crashes, a decrease from 509 such fatalities in 2011.

 

Gas Prices / NEPA

The price of gasoline across Northeastern Pennsylvania is climbing every so slightly. The latest Triple A Fuel Gauge report shows the price of self – serve, unleaded regular is averaging $3.44 a gallon. That's the same as it was over the weekend... but two cents higher than it was a week ago.
