    Students “Walk Up The Line” For Injured Trooper

    SCRANTON — Some students from Scranton started their Thanksgiving morning with a ten-mile walk from one county to another. They do it each year to raise money for a cause. This year’s cause had an extra special meaning for the West Scranton High School students. While most of their classmates were still in bed, the students put on their snow boots and sneakers and headed out for what would be a long morning. “The snow’s a little rough, I wore […]

    More Snow, Fewer Volunteers For “Family To Family”

    SCRANTON — Every year on the day before Thanksgiving, volunteers pass out thousands of turkeys in Scranton to families in need.

While the snow piled high in Scranton more than 3,000 families stood in the white stuff to wait, some for a half hour or more filing into the Scranton Cultural Center for the […]

    The Drone Guys: Going Above And Beyond

    SCRANTON — Drones are small, unmanned aircraft. Think of them as mini-helicopters that can take pictures from hundreds of feet in the air. Two men from Lackawanna County see drones as less of a toy and more of a tool that could be used in dozens of ways in the future. John Culkin and Lee DeAngelis are IT specialists, technology gurus, and amateur pilots. They are equal parts of Access Aerial. It’s not quite a business yet. Consider them ambassadors […]

    Scranton Properties Sold Without Notifying Owners?

    SCRANTON — Some homeowners in Lackawanna County are being told that they no longer own their homes. Their properties were sold at a Scranton City Treasurer’s Sale without the owners even knowing about it. Since Newswatch 16 started looking into these sales, the city of Scranton has started looking into how or if some homeowners were properly notified that their homes were up for sale back in 2013. Two men who have lived in Scranton for many years both found […]

    Scranton’s “Iron District” A Step Closer

    SCRANTON — A project to renovate Scranton’s Historic Iron Furnaces, and develop the south Scranton neighborhood they are in, is a step closer to getting off the ground. More than a year ago, an architect had an idea to develop the Scranton Iron Furnaces into a small restaurant district. That idea has since grown and people in charge of the project are applying for grants they hope will get construction started. Scranton’s Historic Iron Furnaces are a big part of […]

  • PennDOT to Replace Peeling Signs

    DUNMORE — Overhead highway signs on a busy stretch of Interstate 81 in Dunmore aren’t holding up as they should. PennDOT says the signs were put up in the mid 1990s and even at their age shouldn’t be peeling like they are. “But that’s very hazardous to drivers. That’s hazardous to some people, especially people who are older and they can’t see,” said John Stela of Dunmore. Drivers have noticed it too, saying the peeling became worse after last winter. […]

    Texting 911: “what’s ur emergency?”

    JESSUP — In Lackawanna County, dialing 911 is now one of two options if you have an emergency. Now you can also text 911. Nearly all police patrol cars in Lackawanna County have the same phrase on them that now may seem a bit outdated: “dial 911″ in Lackawanna County. Dialing is now just one of two options to get help when you need it. At the Lackawanna County 911 Center in Jessup, director David Hahn took us into the […]
