TURBOTVILLE — Northumberland County Commissioner Joe Klebon fondly recalls speaking with Tom Moser in the late 1970s or early ‘80s about Moser’s plans to purchase land formerly used as a fairgrounds near Turbotville.

Klebon, who once worked as a coach and teacher in the Warrior Run School District, said that Moser planned to build softball fields at the former fairgrounds.
