Salisbury Township Board of Commissioners learned at their Jan. 10 workshop Lehigh County Commissioners at their Jan. 9 meeting again failed to approve the release of the Green Future Fund providing $1.06 million to park and trail projects in the county, including $160,400 for the Lindberg Park trail link to Lehigh Parkway, Allentown.

Corbett action reaction mixed

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by NATE JASTRZEMSKI in Local News

Governor Tom Corbett has filed a lawsuit against the National College Athletics Association on behalf of the commonwealth, railing against unjust penalizations and breaches of procedure in their implementation.

Corbett, after accepting the sanctions against the Penn State football team in July 2012, said in the complaint he's taken time to analyze the NCAA's decision and found it did not follow its own rules. He's declared the penalties "overreaching and unlawful" breaches of antitrust law.
