of the repaving project and how the borough will pay for it council president joe meadow chick said the borough is already pre-approved pre-approved for a 1.8 million dollar loan and hopes to vote to get it in december some time but then councils left with deciding how they’re going to pay the money back if council were to raise taxes only the property owners would be affected but if they do something like a once-a-year garbage fee then tenants would also have to pay for those ten years and that seems to be favorable to citizens and council everyone who lives in macado’s should have to pay because everyone not just property owners will be using the roads is what they say we talked with the project manager who is working with the borough to map out the paving process we’re going to do a study to decide which roads they could look at doing from that study they’re going to look at the value of their loan associated with what they’re going to submit for Pennsylvania infrastructure bank loan once that is completed they’re also looking to possibly look at some other grant sources to do some roads in macular they’re looking at mcadoo overall six roads that council members feel are the worst roads are the ones that could be repaved but those streets might change if and when the engineering firm takes core samples of each of the streets to see how bad each one is the project would also include contacting the utility companies to review their pipes and lines to see if upgrading could be done to go along with the streets project which would help with the cost and improve services to borough residents councils also looking to apply for a grant for handicap ramps at each corner in intersection because federal law requires them if any paving project goes on grant could be for fifty thousand dollars and the engineer will have to apply for that before early November November each intersection would include for ramps with a total cost of twenty thousand dollars each smooth streets was the reason to call the community together in McAdoo but in the city of hazleton Monday night it was a visit by Congressman Lou Barletta that brought folks from near and far to City Hall coming back to his hometown of hazleton was number five in a tour of towns he serves the freshman congressman faced both supporters and critics some who were very vocal on where they stand including the congressman himself take a little listen residents like Jenny Schieffer lashed out at the congressman but Barletta didn’t back down to his naysayers for about 90 minutes emotions ran high the former Hazleton mayor spoke to the crowd about his own efforts to get Americans back to work and ease the unemployment rate the national debt crisis was a major issue discussed some in the crowd cried out regarding barletta support of free trade deals with other countries like South Korea and the subject of social security caught the attention of some audience members as well barletta told his constituents that he has a major concern for national security there’s two things that concern me about our Nationals one is the fact that we rely on foreign countries for our oil at the national security issue today we’re the greatest country on earth we remind for country for our oil the second issue that concerns me we are producing less than less of our own food here farmers are just they can’t make it their ends be any or another paying farmers be able to grow food for fuel when you think about why we just get a room feel and let farmers grow food barletta tells news 13 that he will soak up everything that was said or talked about during this up close and personal meeting with his constituents and returned back to Washington DC and continue to fight for what’s fair the congressman also told the crowd that he will continue to work hard at getting the disaster loan Fairness Act of 2011 passed which was created by barletta in response to our areas record flooding the Act would lower the interest rate of disaster relief loans as high as six percent to just one percent over 30 years it’s been three days since a whitehaven teenager was killed after the car he was riding in crashed and caught on fire family and friends of paulding oya came together monday night to remember the teen at a candlelight vigil News 13th Nikki cries talks to some of those who knew him best at the sad ceremony it breaks my heart to know that he’s gone because he was a great person it was a night of remembrance there were tears smiles and even some laughs his family and friends of paulding oya came together monday night he did everything for everybody he

sport of soccer but tell you the Cougars you’d never know that this was a team that struggled to get a couple of wins this year they battled them tough Coughlin would score the first goal and jump out to a one nothing lead but the Cougars would be undaunted they would battle back in a set must have been the senior night thing they were fired up for these five guys that were playing their final game on the home turf and they would come back and tie the game up tied 1-1 and that’s the way it went at the end of regulation so they had to go OT and Coughlin well they proved to be the better team which they are no question about it but Boyd the Cougars make them sweat the final in this one to nothing in favor of the Coughlin Crusaders so the Cougars lose that finale but I’ll tell you what they deserved a lot of credit because they played very very well and came up with a very tough luck loss now let’s go to the scoreboard and tell you some of the other things that went on yesterday and will talk with volleyball nanticoke straight sets three nothing win over the ma mi preppers meanwhile hazleton area in a non-league encounter they got swept in three straight sets norris cuoco Beetham three zip now what’s going on today well another out of conference matchup than interesting one it’s the bala Bell verse falabella thing dr.
