Below you’ll find the proposed trail map, letter from the Executive Director (Ken) and both the business and individual donation requests (PDF files). Our goal is to reach $5,000 by March 20th and the only way we will do that is with your help. This is the Arboretum’s first matching funds grant and it would be awesome to start off with a great success.
All donations will be matched by The Greater Pottstown Foundation to allow the SAVE Alliance Foundation to provide free after-school and summer outdoor experiences for low income and at-risk youth from the Pottstown area. Not only will the donation help create a first-class arboretum, but it will also go to provide such a wonderful service for the region’s children.
Phil Arlia has been dispensing medication in Pitcairn since 1968, but he was more than a pharmacist.
He was a kind of banker.
“We always had a courtesy of cashing customers’ paychecks, state checks, any kind of check,” said Arlia, owner of Phil’s Pharmacy on Broadway Boulevard.
But he stopped cashing checks when the borough’s only remaining bank, a Citizens Bank branch, closed last March. Arlia no longer had fast access to cash to replenish his register when it got low.
The branch closure made it more difficult for Pitcairn residents to access cash to spend at local businesses.
Donna Sedor, vice president at the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber, has resigned to begin a new leadership career with the Wyoming Valley Children’s Association, according to a letter chamber chief executive officer Wico van Genderen sent to board members.
“I fully support her in this move,” van Genderen said. “As I have said on numerous occasions, our future is our children.”
Sedor has worked for the chamber for 24 years. During her tenure, van Genderen said the chamber has witnessed several accomplishments such as the openings of business parks, the arena, major transportation initiatives and the downtown Wilkes-Barre theater project.
Just how wary lenders are of Atlantic City’s credit is evident in their recent demands as the city tries to refinance $12.8 million in debt due Tuesday.
Three lenders expressed interest in making the loan, but one wanted to charge 12 percent interest. Another was willing to lend at a lower rate but wanted a state guarantee, which the state rejected, Mayor Don Guardian said Saturday.
Talks continued with a third prospective lender, and a decision is expected Monday, Guardian said, adding: “We are prepared to make the payment regardless.”
The financial turmoil in Atlantic City, half of whose gambling revenue has disappeared since 2006, has intensified in the last year, as four of 12 casinos have closed, and 8,000 people have lost their jobs.
The Philadelphia School District plans to hire at least 400 teachers for the 2015-16 school year.
In a district that has spent the last several years closing schools and laying off teachers, that is notable.
Particular areas of need, officials said, are secondary math and science, special education, art, music, and upper elementary school.
In an effort to compete with charter schools and other systems, the district has also changed its application process, shortening the hiring timeline and requiring applicants to submit more information up front.
