    Business In Scranton Open Despite Crash

    SCRANTON — The work day went on at a business in Scranton just hours after a car crashed into its lobby. Lee Yeomans was pretty happy when she left work in Scranton a little early on Wednesday. “Very scary, yeah, of course, we could have been leaving for the day at the same time!” It was only five minutes past quitting time when a Lexus came crashing through the front doors of Express Employment Professionals on West Market Street. “I […]

    Schools Call on State for Funding, Fixes

    SCRANTON — School administrators from Lackawanna, Wayne, and Susquehanna Counties met Wednesday to release a report on the financial health of Pennsylvania’s public schools.

Those school administrators met at Scranton High School to go over the findings of a survey that asked more than 300 school districts about their financial health. The administrators there say the survey calls for […]

    Financial Planner Pleads Guilty to “Ponzi Scheme”

    MOOSIC — A financial planner from Lackawanna County pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to stealing more than $2 million from clients. Jason Muskey of Moosic admitted to taking money from the accounts of clients and using it to buy all kinds of personal things.

The sign has been taken down outside […]

    Make-Up Day on Presidents’ Day

    ARCHBALD — Many school districts that were supposed to have off for Presidents’ Day ended up in class because of the number of snow days leading up to the holiday weekend. The superintendent of the Valley View School District said the low temperature outside Valley View High School was -7 degrees. Inside, where students come in from the cold, is a clear message of what rough winters have taught administrators: a television display reminding parents and students that there was […]

    Executions on Hold In Pennsylvania

    SCRANTON — No one has been executed in Pennsylvania since Gary Heidnik in 1999. So statewide, it may seem that a moratorium on the death penalty already exists. The governor’s action Friday only makes it official. However, a moratorium on the death penalty does have an impact on prosecutors in our area where there are at least two ongoing capital cases. Calling Pennsylvania’s death penalty a “flawed system,” Governor Tom Wolf has put a moratorium on executions in order to do […]

    Lackawanna County To Pick Replacement Commissioner

    SCRANTON — With the resignation of Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey O’Brien, voters find themselves in a position they’re all too familiar with.

When majority commissioner Corey O’Brien resigns in March, Lackawanna County will exercise a part of its home rule charter that has been used before in the past decade. County solicitor Don Frederickson says the Democratic party, then […]

    Bringing Energy Careers to the Classroom

    ARCHBALD — Marcellus Shale sits more than 5,000 feet below Valley View High School in Archbald, but on ground level, junior students had a chance to pick some up and learn about what it does in natural gas production. They also learned about electricity and water use and about how it’s wasted. That lesson really resonated with some students like Kylee Bushta. “Many interesting things about how energy is transported here, and the way we can renew and not waste it,” Bushta […]

The creators of the program hope it gives some parents more options and some children more medical coverage. South Scranton Intermediate and Scranton’s two other intermediate schools recently got big upgrades in their nurses’ offices. As long as it’s approved by the school board this week, a nurse practitioner will soon rotate through the three schools. A medical group […]

    Two Different Demolitions In One Neighborhood

    SCRANTON — Demolition crews are tearing down several properties in Scranton, including one that polluted the Lackawanna River last summer. People who live in the 1200 and 1300 blocks of North Washington Avenue woke up Monday morning to the sounds of two demolition crews. One is making way for a parking lot, the other one is a bit of a mystery. But neighbors say regardless, their neighborhood is changing. Two long-expected changes to the Scranton neighborhood, by coincidence, came at […]
