    “Everything Natural” Up For Sale

    CLARKS SUMMIT — A health food store in Lackawanna County is up for sale, but the owners will only sell on one condition: that the buyer has to continue the store’s 30-year mission.

Now we’re authorities,” Kaplan laughed. They started Everything Natural, a health […]

Neighbors say those lots are often the biggest eyesores. “Rundown, […]

    State Probes Potential Pension Problems In Scranton

The state police are looking into it and so is the state auditor general. Auditor General Eugene DePasquale has […]
