A possible amendment to include regulations for seismic testing associated with Marcellus Shale drilling is being addressed by council. And one company has said it would like to commence that activity in a portion of the community.
Peters Township Council on Monday discussed amending its oil and gas ordinance to include regulations for seismic testing. Seismic testing is used in the Marcellus Shale industry to determine the geo structure of an area, and where the best place would be to commence drilling activities. Manager Michael Silvestri said the solicitor is reviewing language in the oil and gas drilling ordinances of nearby Cecil and Robinson townships regarding seismic testing. Council took no action on the proposed amendment, instead opting to allow its solicitor to tweak language to ensure that it is compliant with the state's law governing Marcellus Shale drilling, known as Act 13. Silvestri noted that the topic of seismic testing was brought up a second …
See which station has the lowest gas prices in Peters Township.
The summer driving season is just around the corner, a time when Peters Township drivers brace for more pain at the pump. But maybe not this year. Jeff Edwin was pleasantly surprised Monday when he filled up his sport utility vehicle at the Sheetz on Babcock Boulevard for $3.57 a gallon. “Get it while it's less than $3.60, you know? It's a good thing,” Edwin told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review . “I'm just hopeful they stay the way they are, and don't start rising again for as long as they can. I'm an average worker with average pay ... and it makes a big difference in my life.” Retail gas prices have dropped steadily since the end of February because more refineries have come back on line after routine maintenance, and crude oil prices have…

The Pennsylvania Treasury's Bureau of Unclaimed Property lists local organizations and businesses with money due them—and there might be some out there for you, too.
Each year, the Pennsylvania Treasury receives millions of dollars in unclaimed property, including abandoned bank accounts, forgotten stocks, uncashed checks, certificates of deposit, life insurance policies, safe deposit box contents and recovered stolen property. Most of this unclaimed property is owed to individual residents. (Read below to find out how to search for yourself or for a relative). However, there are a number of municipalities, school districts, fire and police departments, civic groups, and other organizations that also have money waiting for them. The state website identifies the property as either "under $100" or "over $100" and the source of the property. A quick (and by no means complete) search of the state's …
