Propane Prices - January 2020

Just a quick FYI to anyone who uses propane to heat their homes - I just got pricing today from local propane suppliers and found Heller's Gas to be the best price at $1.14 / gallon.

The highest price was $1.99 / gallon.  It pays to own your tank and price shop each fill!

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s 2020 hemp program is now accepting applications from both commercial growers and processors.

The 2020 application period is open through April 1. This year, both growers and processors of hemp are required to apply. The permitting of processors is new for the 2020 program. Each individual property will require its own permit and application. A permit costs $150.

Editor's Note:
This Pocono Record article was originally headlined "Potential buyer of old ShopRite building surfaces" but I found the last paragraph of the article to be most intriguing, in case you missed it:

The possibility of a new owner of the Monroe Plaza, within walking distance of downtown Stroudsburg, comes as borough officials are discussing ways of revitalizing the downtown and making the area more attractive to developers. One idea being considered would permit the construction of taller buildings as the borough seeks new tax revenues to offset properties that have dropped off the tax rolls through acquisitions of buildings by Monroe County officials who want more space to meet growing demands for government services. 

The coalition that successfully sought gigabit-speed internet in Monroe County has turned its attention to dead cell zones.

It’s an issue audience members would mention at meetings about the Monroe Gigabit Project, said Kelly Lewis, president of Lewis Strategic. They would praise faster internet, but ask when poor or nonexistent cell service at their home or elsewhere would improve.
