    La Festa Group To Fund Electric City Sign Rehab

    SCRANTON — It has become one of the most identifiable symbols of the electric City: the sign bearing Scranton’s nickname. It’s in rough shape and city officials say it could cost $10,000 to fix all the burned out bulbs. That’s a $10,000 bill that Scranton Mayor Bill Courtright knew the city couldn’t afford, but organizers of La Festa Italiana, the food festival held on courthouse square every summer, stepped up and offered to pay to replace all the bulbs on […]

It became more complicated than that because that tree is also home to about 50,000 bees. The attempt […]

    PennDOT’s Paving Promise, But We’ll Have To Wait

    SCRANTON — Drivers in Lackawanna County are criticizing PennDOT for the way crews paved a pothole-filled road, paving only the shoulders but not the lanes. PennDOT officials say there’s a good reason for that. It may just take a while before you see new pavement on the Morgan Highway. PennDOT officials say they are getting calls and emails every day from drivers who use the Morgan Highway that connects Scranton with the Abingtons. You can see it’s in pretty poor […]
