Rabies vaccination clinic slated for April 29

WILLIAMSPORT -- The Williamsport Town Council voted unanimously Monday to allow Promise Animal League Inc. to hold a rabies vaccination clinic in Byron Memorial Park on April 29.

The event will be in the upper pavilion from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to an event flier distributed at the meeting. Vaccinations will be available for cats and dogs for $8 each, and every 10th pet will be given a rabies vaccination free of charge, the flier says. Pets must be leashed or confined to a crate at all times.

Town council denies request to open hot dog stand

WILLIAMSPORT -- The Williamsport Town Council decided Monday to refuse, for the second year in a row, a local woman's request to open a hot dog stand in Byron Memorial Park.


Monique R. Allia wrote in a letter to the council that she would comply with health department rules and regulations, and provide references if required.

"With the economy the way it is today and my husband being self-employed, I am the only working member of my family," she wrote.

Councilman Monty R. Jones said allowing a hot dog stand would take business away from existing businesses in town. The other council members agreed to refuse Allia's request.

General store to open in May

WILLIAMSPORT -- A general store is expected to open in mid- or late May at 5 N. Conococheague St., business owner Wanda Kneasel said Monday.

Kneasel said the business, called Susie's Country Jewels, will sell a variety of goods, including furniture and staples such as milk, eggs, bread and cheese.

Kneasel said the store will open in a building that once was an ice cream shop run by her uncle. Kneasel lives in Martinsburg, W.Va., but plans to move to Williamsport, she said.
