The Derry Township Supervisors voted on the final list of Community Development Block Grant funded projects, during a meeting earlier this week.

The township was allotted $110,377 to use for projects throughout the township.

The supervisors had to decide if part of the funds would go toward a fair share project, which would be for Big Brothers Big Sisters, which is a countywide program that works with children or if they would use the money to go toward paving projects.

After a discussion, it was voted to not fund the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

West York Mayor Charles Wasko didn’t attend Monday’s scheduled borough council meeting after making headlines nationally for his Facebook posts that many consider offensive.

Wasko posted a picture of orangutans and referenced the Obama family, along with pictures that council members said were offensive to people of various religions.

Council members want Wasko to step down.

The council has stressed the mayors comments do not represent the majority of people who live in our community.

Council members, along with representatives of the NAACP and the state legislature, indicated they are looking into all avenues on how to remove Wasko from office if he chooses not to resign.

At the end of the meeting, the council formally censured Wasko.

Sheetz announced that it will be the first convenience store in the state to sell wine.

Yesterday, a Sheetz’s store in Shippensburg sold the first bottle, made possible by the passing of Act 39, the “ABC and Wine Privatization Act,” in June.

The updated PA-HB 1690 bill could provide the state with a financial windfall of up to $150 million in new revenue.

Penn State got national attention this week after thousands of students took to the streets after rumors started that there was a creepy clown sighting nearby.

It turns out the rumor was all Penn Staters needed to take action, what started as a rumor quickly turned into a rally of sorts.

Word spread quickly thanks to social media and students rushed outside to get a look for themselves.

As the mob grew, some came equipped with baseball bats, hockey sticks, tennis rackets, and golf clubs as weapons while others just took to the pavement to see what all the commotion was about.

The clown hunt started around 11pm and by 1:15 a.m., most students found their way back to the rooms, but the clown commotion continued on social media.

There was no confirmation of a clown sighting anywhere on campus.
