That’s really wonderful news that Shamokin will get a $3,000,000 grant to be infused into so-called upgrading. I have a question. It said in the paper they’re thinking about the former Coal Hole and Jones Hardware buildings being a hotel. I thought one of the biggest problems in this area is that the AOAA patrons have no place to stay. With two hotels in the immediate area, my question is this, where are they going to find parking for their ATVs? In my opinion, I would have thought the former Kmart building would have been better because you could have plenty of parking space and have access to Route 61. In any case, I’m glad Shamokin is starting to move forward.
