WASHINGTON COUNTY -- The Town of Williamsport installed energy-efficient boilers last summer at two public buildings -- Town Hall and the Williamsport Memorial Library -- to save money. The boilers cost a combined $73,000, but burn two gallons of heating oil per hour instead of 6.4 gallons per hour as the old ones did, Mayor James G. McCleaf II said. In three years, the town should recoup its cost. "It's going to save us a ton of money through the years," McCleaf said. In addition to the fiscal benefits, the boiler purchase is just one of the steps that Williamsport has taken to go green.

January At the dawn of 2008, there was a clear uneasiness about the state of our national and regional economy. Before year's end, many local residents would be thrown out of work, lose their homes and be forced into selling stink bugs for scrap. Foreclosures and jobless rates would hit record levels. Massive banks, once regarded as "too big to fail," would do so. The American auto industry would teeter on the brink of extinction. The entire world credit markets would seize up, threatening capitalism and our very way of life.

About 3,000 lose power About 3,500 Allegheny Power customers in the Tri-State area were without electricity Wednesday as the result of high winds that temporarily damaged power lines, Allegheny Power spokesman Todd Meyers said. Meyers said power was restored to about 3,000 of the customers by early Wednesday afternoon. Although the outages were expected to "ebb and flow" throughout the day because of high winds, the goal was to have all of the power restored by 6 p.m., Meyers said.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Bob Dylan sang that "the answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind. " And it just might be for a Waynesboro couple closely watching the energy crisis. Kurt and Natalie Kemerer installed a 35-foot residential wind generator in their backyard this summer. They've discovered that harvesting the wind's power has shaved about 25 percent off their monthly Allegheny Power bill. They hope the savings will be greater when Pennsylvania rate caps expire in coming years and electric bills increase dramatically.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County Commission on Thursday offered another round of opposition to the proposed high-voltage power line that could cross through the county. Allegheny Power officials said recently that possible routes for the Potomac Appalachian Transmission Highline (PATH) have been eliminated in Washington County, Md., and Berkeley and Morgan counties in the Eastern Panhandle. But the line could still cross through Jefferson County, Allegheny Energy officials said.

A high-voltage power line planned to run from West Virginia to Maryland will not pass through Washington County under its current configuration, an Allegheny Power spokesman said Monday. Allegheny Power officials announced changes earlier this month to the Potomac Appalachian Transmission Highline (PATH) that they said probably would keep it out of Washington County. A midpoint substation in Bedington, W.Va., near Martinsburg, no longer will be used. From Bedington, the line could have passed through southern Washington County.

However, Allegheny Power Spokesman Allen T. Staggers would not rule out Jefferson County, W.Va. "I suspect Jefferson County will be within the new study area," Staggers said.
