A McVeytown man was injured when a deer ran into the path of his vehicle early Monday morning. State Police say the accident happened at about 4:30 am on Route 103 in Bratton Township, Mifflin County. According to the report, 28-year-old Zackery Harshbarger was the operator of a Ford Ranger just north of Short Loop Road. Harshbarger’s vehicle struck the deer, then veered off the roadway and severed a utility pole. The Ranger came to rest in a ditch. The driver was transported to Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital.
A new state law will require employers in the construction industry to use the federal E-Verify system to ensure their employees are authorized to work in the United States. The law is aimed at dishonest employers. Under the law, failure to use E-Verify when hiring new employees will result in action against a company’s licenses required to do business (i.e. corporate charters, as well as any other business license). The law is modeled after Arizona’s statute, which has been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. The new Pennsylvania law will take effect in one year.
