Muncy locals Oct. 12, 2016

By Staff | Oct 14, 2016

It is Fire Prevention Week and fire safety officials say not to wait, and to take the time out now to replace those fire alarms. They recommend to replace them every ten years.

PPL was on hand last week to teach our first responders on the dangers of downed and underground active wires. We had a lot of trees come down from the vicious winds in Muncy last month and several of those trees were near live wires. Be sure to check your home for any dangerous wires that might be too close. A bad electrical storm could set a fire.

The heat is on, and I mean that literally. Muncy residents Crystal Millard, Selinda Kennedy and Melissa Schell have organized a protest group “Stop the Muncy Waste Incinerator” which has grown to over 1500 members. Their mission is to stop the possibility of Delta Thermal Energy from coming to Muncy to build a waste-to-energy plant. More information will be revealed in the Luminary as meetings are set and the borough makes some decisions on the outcome.

Sunday was a very patriotic day as two bridge signs were unveiled at the Muncy Baptist Church to honor two lost veterans whose roots were established here in Muncy. Look for those signs soon with the name of William Merrill over Glade Run on the Rt. 405 and 442 intersection, and the name of Pvt. Walter L. Smith on the bridge over Muncy Creek in Muncy Creek Township on Rt. 2014. Rep. Garth Everett was there to dedicate and unveil the signs.
