PART OF THE TURNPIKE TO SEE A 70 MPH SPEED LIMIT

A portion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will see an increase in the speed limit this Wednesday. The stretch from the Blue Mountain interchange at Shippensburg to Morgantown will see an increase in the speed limit to 70 miles per hour. The transportation law passed last year authorized the increase. The Turnpike Commission said the design of the highway in the affected area can safely accommodate the higher limit. In the meantime, PennDOT will review other highways that currently have a 65 MPH limit to see if the mark could be safely raised elsewhere. Parts of Texas have the highest speed limits in the nation at 85 miles per hour.

CARLISLE WOMAN CHARGED FOR FALSE REPORTS

A Carlisle woman is facing charges for allegedly making false reports to police.

Charges of false reports to law enforcement officers and disorderly conduct have been filed against Nies through the office of District Judge Schechterly.

DUNCANNON MAN JAILED IN ROBBERY AT LIVERPOOL BAR

A Duncannon man is behind bars following a Saturday night incident at the Creekside Inn in Liverpool. State Police at Newport say they were called to the Inn at 11:10 Saturday night for a report of an intoxicated man who allegedly pointed a loaded 22-calibre firearm at a bartender. Guy Thomas Clark II, 43, reportedly refused to pay his tab and tried to grab his debit card from the bartender. After allegedly pointing the weapon at the woman, Clark tried to leave the bar, but was apprehended. He was arrested, arraigned, and sent to the Perry County Prison in lieu of $200,000.00 bail. Clark has been charged with robbery.

NEW TAX PROPOSAL COULD EFFECT SCHOOL DISTRICTS

A new school property tax reform plan is on the table with hopes of jump starting discussions that faded to the background during debate on the budget and other issues.    The plan from State House Republican Policy Committee chair Dave Reed would raise the state's share of basic education funding and allow school districts to eliminate property taxes through local options. The revenue would be generated through state income and state sales tax changes. The new state funding would be distributed on an enrollment basis, helping growing districts.

ELK HUNTING LICENSE DEADLINE IS EARLIER THIS YEAR

This year's deadline to apply for an elk hunting license in Pennsylvania is earlier than in previous years. The deadline of July 31st is about a month earlier than in previous years, because the elk license drawing was also moved up to Saturday August 16, as part of the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Elk Expo. State Game Commission officials say they expect as many as 18-thousand applications, and will issue 108 elk licenses. Elk season in Pennsylvania runs from November 3rd through the 8th with an extended season the 10th through the 15th.
