YARGER NAMED JCSD SUPERINTENDENT

Keith Yarger has been voted to become the next superintendent of the Juniata County School District. Yarger’s hiring was formalized at Thursday’s regular meeting of the Juniata County School Board. He will begin a three-year contract August 24th, a pact that will pay him $110,000.00 annually. Yarger had been superintendent at the Southern Tioga School District in Mansfield, and prior to that, a principal in the Northern York district in Dillsburg. Yarger replaces Richard Musselman, who resigned the Juniata County superintendent post earlier this year to take the same position in the Midd-West School District in Middleburg. Also Thursday, the school board accepted the resignation of Region 3 director Melvin Brubaker, Jr. The seat represents the residents of Susquehanna and Delaware Townships.

Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call State Police at 717-567-3110.

LABOR DAY TRAVEL FORECAST AT POST-RECESSION HIGH

Millions of Americans will hit the road for Labor Day next week with travel for the holiday projected to be the busiest since the recession. It's the last holiday weekend of summer and nearly 35 million Americans are expected to travel at least fifty miles from home, an increase of 1.3% from last year. AAA credits the calendar- since the holiday is the earliest it can fall, along with gas prices, which are at a four year low. They're also seeing signs of more consumer confidence with spending outpacing the increase in income.
