    $2.5 Million in State Money to Go to Redevelop Old Hotel in Hazleton……………

    And we still can’t get a direct off ramp into the Humbolt Ind. Park to alleviate the Big rig traffic, and massive traffic when shift change happens. so 924 gets destroyed with pot holes every year..oh and Pdot doesn’t even fill them in….

    Yep our good state leaders tossing money at this krap, which will probably go belly up anyway….
