A recent report in the Pennsylvania Capital-Star says the Wolf administration has yet to spend almost two-thirds of the $104 million Pennsylvania received from the federal CARES Act. The funds were dedicated to improve internet connectivity, including rural broadband access, for K-12 and college students across Pennsylvania. House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) is calling on the Governor Wolf to rapidly deploy the remaining funding to help provide rural broadband access, and ensure those students who are turning to online education can have better connectivity and receive the educational opportunities to which they are entitled. Benninghoff said “without the funding, many children will again suffer the devastating effects of another lost school year.”
Giant Eagle has recalled red, yellow and white onions sold in produce departments across Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana and Maryland. The recall also includes select prepared foods items that included the affected onions. The recall is due to potential salmonella contamination. Customers who have purchased the affected product and are still in possession of it should dispose of it. They can also bring the receipt to their local Giant Eagle or Market District location to receive a refund.
Geisinger has helped expand the Farm Museum at the Huntingdon County Fair with a $75,000 donation toward construction of “Geisinger Hall,” which will provide a space for community members to gather. The museum was established in 1987 to honor and preserve agriculture in Huntingdon County. This year’s Huntingdon County Fair has been canceled due to COVID-19. As a healthcare leader in the community, Geisinger looks forward to enhancing its partnership, and continuing to make Huntingdon County a great place to live and work.
