Williamsport is having a bad week. There have been four shootings since Sunday. Yesterday afternoon shots were fired between two vehicles a few blocks west of Williamsport General Hospital. One person was wounded and taken to a local hospital.
Sunday night a nonfatal shooting occurred in Memorial Park. Early Wednesday morning a second nonfatal shooting occurred on West Fourth Street. Wednesday night a Philadelphia man was killed along High Street.
Police and city officials and trying to come up with a solution for the recent rash of gunfire. Police say the shootings are not random.
Some demographics on Williamsport courtesy of City-data.com: 2009 population estimate 29,304, land area is 8.88 square miles, number of police officers 53, City-data 2009 crime index was 322.1 (low), 2009 estimated median household income $25,101, 2009 estimate per capita income $16,442 and the unemployment rate as of April 2010 was 10.4%.
Donovan McNabb‘s career is in free fall. He is now being reduced to third string QB for the Redskins and coach Mike Shanahan said he may not be back next season. Didn’t we just witness the hoopla over McNabb’s new contract a few weeks ago? However, before the ink was dry he lost another game?
The Redskins are 5-8. There are three more games left this season for the Redskins. After next week, McNabb falls to third string for the last two games of the season. McNabb’s performance has been erratic (say it ain’t so Joe) and he has dropped to 25th in the league with a 77.1 passer rating. Not to mention his career-high 15 interceptions.
I think this season certainly justifies to anyone why McNabb is no longer No. 5 with the Eagles.
IMHO Donovan should bow out gracefully and retire while he still has a shred of dignity left!
The Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is going to receive just that, an infusion of capital that will make three York County projects possible. Approval has been given for the sale of $650 million dollars in bonds by Pennsylvania Treasurer, Rob McCord.
The Northwest Triangle project is waiting on a $7.5 million dollar grant to demolish buildings and make way for new construction. For more information on the Northwest Triangle, you can read my post on this very large brownfield redevelopment project in York City.
