PINE GROVE TWP. - The Ruth Steinert Memorial SPCA, located at 18 Wertz Drive in Pine Grove Twp. is in need of monetary donations.
The small no-kill SPCA is one of two shelters in Schuylkill County. The employees of the shelter are not seeking to take funds away from anyone else, just simply asking if you give to one to try to give to both.
Ruth Steinert SPCA has been at its location since 2009, however, a fire in 2010 closed it down for a while, but it is back and under entirely new management.
VALLEY VIEW - It was a packed house Monday evening for the Hegins Township Supervisors meeting. The Concerned Citizens had their attorney, Kevin Walsh, present at the meeting and State Representative Mike Tobash was also in attendance.
Attorney Walsh was present to express the Concerned Citizens oposition to the Act 537 resolution.
The township supervisors had to adopt a resolution changing implementation dates and activities for the plan by DEP. The dates had to be changed due to timing delays with the plan being submitted and waiting on its approval.
