Carl comes under scrutiny for use of truck

VALLEY VIEW – With one supervisor accused of doing illegal activity and the road foreman being questioned why there are binoculars on the dashboard of the township truck, the Hegins Township Road Foreman’s report was interesting topic at last Wednesday’s supervisor’s meeting.

Chairman Supervisor Gary Harner questioned Supervisor Brad Carl who authorized him to help with a paving project in Deep Creek back in October? Harner noted that it states in the minutes from the January 2016 reorganization meeting minutes that a supervisor must be authorized by at least three of the supervisors in order to work for the township and will be compensated $12 per hour.

LOYALTON — Stemming from their purchase of Apple iPads for their students earlier this year, The Upper Dauphin Area School District is once again reinvesting in technology with a larger purchase.

At their meeting Dec. 5, the board voted to spend almost $70,000 on Apple-branded computers, based on a quote sought by superintendent Evan Williams that was set to expire on Dec. 10. The purchase will be for 13 five-packs of MacBook Air computers, 65 total, at a total cost of $64,200. Those computers will be used by the middle and elementary school teachers.

The district will also purchase five 21.5-inch iMac desktop computers at a total cost of $5,245. Those computers will be used for the student help desk initiative where students help to fix computer troubles, and in the elementary and middle school libraries.
