Twenty-six airports will make infrastructure and equipment upgrades to maintain safety and expand aviation-related operational and economic opportunities with the assistance of over $6 million in state investments.  Included in the grants is $2.2 million in state funding from PennDOT’s Aviation Development Program, which comes from the state’s jet fuel tax.  Clarion County Airport will receive $112,500 to acquire equipment to maintain the airfield.  Lawrence Airport in Clearfield County will receive $9,000 to install upgrades to the airport’s jet fueling equipment.  Carlisle Airport in Cumberland County will get $90,000 to trim and remove trees off the airport that impact the approach to the runway.


Construction is complete on a Route 1004 bridge on Shade Road in Juniata County.  The bridge spans Little Lost Creek in McAlisterville. It was replaced as part of PennDOT’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, and reopened to traffic on Wednesday (December 5th).  The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.


The American Red Cross will be in Juniata County for a blood drive today.  The blood mobile will be at the Thompsontown Ambulance League on State Street from 1:00 pm to 6:30 pm.


The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) has offered tips on safely hosting parties during the Christmas Season, and reminds Pennsylvanians of potential liability if a guest has an alcohol-related incident, even after leaving the party.  This week, a two-sided flyer featuring suggestions and helpful links will be placed in customers’ bags at more than 600 Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores throughout the Commonwealth.  The handout identifies several tips, such as making sure as a host you stay sober to monitor your guests’ sobriety.   You should also offer a variety of non-alcoholic beverages, stop alcohol service about an hour before the party ends, and never serve alcohol to anyone under 21 years of age.  Additional party planning and responsible hosting tips are available at FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com.
