Written by Dan Kelly Reading, PA — Owners of the Rolling Hills Landfill in Earl Township are once again asking the state Department of Environmental Protection for permission to expand the operation. The latest proposal, discussed Wednesday at the Berks County Planning Commission's monthly meeting, calls for the solid waste disposal boundary of the landfill to be expanded by 8.9 million cubic yards. The expansion would extend the life of the landfill by about 10 years, according to a review of the application by county planners. Since the Berks County commissioners are on record opposing any expansion of the facility, the Delaware Valley Solid Waste Authority, owner of Rolling Hills Landfill, withdrew its initial expansion application in October 2017. The new application, a copy of which has been … [Read more...] about Berks County planners discuss Rolling Hills Landfill’s expansion proposal

close Video North Carolina citizens picking up the pieces after Florence Jonathan Serrie reports from Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Headlines proclaim rising floodwaters have left Wilmington, North Carolina “cut off” from the rest of the world. While largely true, my crew and I managed to find a roundabout way of driving back to our home base in Atlanta. Producer Chip Bell, photographer Cappy Cochran and I had spent nearly a week on Wrightsville Beach. Reporting live from outside our vacation-rental condominium, we experienced the heavy winds of Hurricane Florence’s eye wall, marveled at the eerie calm of the eye of the storm and then got battered by the eye wall once again. Despite being in the direct path of the storm, Wilmington Beach was spared much of the damage and flooding experienced by other North Carolina communities. After finishing our early morning reporting shift on Sunday, it was time to go home. But we didn’t get much … [Read more...] about Reporter’s Notebook: Isolated by floodwaters, Fox News crew finds route out of Wilmington
A lot of cars and trucks enter and exit the Farm Progress Show during the three days of the show. On average, it’s about 20,000 to 25,000 vehicles per day. Getting visitors into and out of the show site safely and smoothly is the goal of the Iowa State Patrol. Maj. Randy Kunert, field operations coordinator for the state patrol, helps oversee traffic planning for the Boone show site, with input from others involved. “We have a great working relationship with the other agencies,” he says. “Well ahead of each Farm Progress Show, we meet with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department, Boone Police Department, Farm Progress Show representatives and our partners at the Iowa Department of Transportation. “We review how things went at the previous show [two years ago].

Dear Stoner: We’re driving through Colorado on our trip to the Grand Canyon, and we want to stop at a few marijuana hotspots and take in your state’s resource. Please guide me.Preston Dear Preston: You’re probably driving east through Colorado on one of two interstates: I-70 or I-76. The vast majority of eastern Colorado towns and counties have banned retail cannabis sales; other than a shop in Sedgwick, in the northeastern corner, and a few in Log Lane Village (a small town off I-76), you won’t come across any real commercial pot experience along either interstate until you get close to metro Denver. EXPAND Denver has no shortage of dispensaries to choose from. Scott Lentz Denver is the state’s recreational-cannabis hub, with pot dispensaries seemingly on every corner in some parts of town; you’ll also find cannabis-related tours and events here. It’ll be harder to choose where to shop and what to do than it will be to find cannabis … [Read more...] about Ask a Stoner: What’s the Best 4/20 Route for Driving Across Colorado?
