Cleaning up former Mayor Steve Reed’s mess is going to take more than just a solution to his incinerator debt.

Harrisburg‘s state-appointed Receiver has said he hopes to file sometime today his plan to eliminate the city’s bad debt through the sale of the incinerator and a long-term lease of parking assets.

While the more than $360 million in unpayable debt at the incinerator is the root of why the city is in receivership, whatever plan is put forward has to account for much more than that.

WILKES-BARRE, PA – Search warrants filed in Saturday’s shooting of two children in the Sherman Hills apartment complex suggest the father was upset that two men were inside the mother’s apartment in Building 328.

It was a dead baby, and not a fetus, that was found in a toilet tank at Starters Pub in Lower Saucon Township last week, District Attorney John Morganelli said in a news release Monday.

“Deceased baby” were the words Morganelli chose as he announced a news conference this afternoon to discuss the status of the criminal investigation into the gruesome discovery Aug. 19 at the popular sports bar on Route 378.

That runs counter to the description offered by Lower Saucon police, who used “fetus” to the media.

The body was found by a cleaning crew in a women’s restroom at Starters, but investigators have disclosed few details about the circumstances.

However, Camp Hill, Pa.-based Rite Aid didn’t fare as well, making the least-respected list.

Editor’s note:  This is priceless and really says something.  Miley needs an intervention.  You gotta check out the picture!

Well it seems as if we weren’t the only ones completely dumbfounded by Miley Cyrus’ performance at Sunday evening’s Video Music Awards.

The pop star twerked, she gyrated, slapped a butt, and uncomfortably paraded around teddy bears during her risque number alongside Robin Thicke, even using a foam hand as a sexual prop – all while wearing a plastic bikini.  Oh, and she sang, too.

LOWER POTTSGROVE TOWNSHIP — As the housing and construction market begins to pick-up steam again, township leaders are turning their eyes toward the development potential of land near the Route 422 Sanatoga interchange.

Thursday night, consultant Peter Simone outlined those for the township commissioners options contained in the master plan for the region now under consideration.

Much of the development at that locale is on the Limerick Township side of the road — namely the Philadelphia Outlets and the Costco.

But the two townships have been planning together for further development in that area for several years now, Simone said.
