    Family to Family Thanksgiving in Need of Donations

    SCRANTON — The Family to Family Thanksgiving food basket giveaway is just two days away, and the organization in Lackawanna County only has about $30,000 of its $90,000 goal. Organizers said money is desperately needed to feed more than 3,300 families on Thanksgiving. “We were nervous last year because we ended up running out of food, so we ordered some extra food this year because we certainly don’t want anyone to go without a dinner. So, our bill is a […]

    Three Huskies Found Malnourished, Neglected

    SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP — An animal shelter in Lackawanna County has seen an influx of malnourished and neglected dogs this month, coincidentally, all of the same breed. They’re being added to a growing list of open animal abuse investigations. Over the past four weeks, the humane officer from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter near Clarks Summit has picked up three huskies, all victims of abuse. Two of them were severely malnourished. The humane officer now has the tough task of tracking […]

    Scranton Welcomes Santa and it Feels Like Summer

    SCRANTON — Unseasonably warm temperatures greeted parade goers who welcomed Santa Claus and the holiday season in Scranton on Saturday. It felt almost summerlike at Scranton’s traditional kick off to the holiday season. “The parade is awesome. It’s an awesome time to be here, and it’s really, really, really warm out. Surprising,” said Harley Dietz of Lake Ariel. It’s no surprise that this year’s Santa Parade in downtown Scranton may be the best attended. It makes sense since temperatures got […]

    Scranton Firehouses Need Fixing

    SCRANTON — Scranton is known for its architecture but lately, a group of city-owned buildings hasn’t been a point of pride. Many of Scranton’s firehouses are in disrepair but now the mayor has borrowed money with a plan to fix them up. Many of city’s eight firehouses were built back in the 1950s and 1960s. None of them has had any major improvements for 25 years. The city has budgeted $1.7 million to fix them all up next spring, but […]

    PennDOT Learns About New Roadside Danger

    JESSUP — Our state’s drug problem is affecting a place you might not expect — the side of our highways. Police say they are finding remnants of methamphetamine labs on the side of the road, prompting state troopers to train PennDOT on how to identify the dangerous materials. This is the time of the year when you’ll see a lot of PennDOT road crews out picking up trash and clearing out the side of the highways ahead of the winter […]

    Abandoned Dickson City Walmart Coming Down

    DICKSON CITY — It’s a tear-down 20 years in the making. A popular plaza in Dickson City has been haunted by an old ghost of a former big box store. Walmart is finally coming down. “It was a real eyesore,” said Lucy Burke of Hawley. “I’m very glad to see that they’re finally doing something with the property.” “Yes, and such a waste of all the beautiful flowers that are planted in front of it,” added Charlotte Stone of Ararat Township.

    A Tale of Two Budgets in Scranton

    SCRANTON — It’s that time of year when all the taxing bodies put together their budgets for next year. Taxpayers in the city of Scranton are not expected to pay any more in city taxes in 2017. The school tax bill is still in question. Scrantonians took the news of no city tax increase with a grain of salt at Sharon’s Place in Scranton. Financial problems never seem too far away. “Are they getting raises? Because I don’t see much of […]

    DEP Cites Keystone Landfill for Violations

    DUNMORE — Opponents of a proposed expansion of a landfill in Lackawanna County received some ammunition this week. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection cited the Keystone Sanitary Landfill for violations. Those three DEP citations handed over to the Keystone Sanitary Landfill this week have to do with the landfill’s management of leachate or groundwater that flows through the garbage. Much of the work that goes on at the Keystone Sanitary Landfill in Dunmore doesn’t actually have anything to do […]

    Scranton Asking for Some Leaf Collection Help

    SCRANTON — Those autumn leaves are pretty until they have to be picked up. And in Scranton, the method for picking up all of these leaves has created some confusion. City officials want to switch it up to make leaf collection quicker, but it could require more work on your part. Silence in the city of Scranton was interrupted this week by the sounds of giant vacuums. Special DPW trucks are making their annual trip sucking up leaves left on […]

    Small Precincts See Early Voting Rush

    LACKAWANNA COUNTY — The voting experience in Taylor during the day was the reverse of many other polling places in Lackawanna County. The judge of election says it’s been steady and voter turnout has been about average, but this is a place where people typically vote after work. In other places, officials say they saw early voters like never before. At a polling place in Ransom Township, near Clarks Summit, there are only 500 registered voters. The faces are familiar […]
