Subject: Sentencing County Woman Gets "Jail Break"

A Susquehanna County woman was sentenced to five jail terms of three to 18 months each when she appeared before President Judge Kenneth W. Seamans last Thursday on a variety of charges.

Fortunately for 26-year-old Jessica Decker of Montrose, Judge Seamans ruled that four of the jail terms will run concurrent with the initial sentence he handed down. She will also receive credit for time she served in the county lockup since her arrest.

The first charge against Ms. Decker was theft by deception in Oakland Township on April 14, 2006. The judge fined her $200 and also ordered her to receive drug and alcohol counseling and to make restitution to the victim in the case.

Ms. Decker received the additional jail terms and fines totaling another $1,050 for theft by deception in Lanesboro on May 20, 20006; theft by deception again in Lanesboro on December 11, 2006; criminal trespass in Susquehanna on December 13, 2006; and, theft by unlawful taking in Susquehanna, also on December 13, 2006.

Harford Main Street Restored
By Ted Brewster

In June of 2000, PennDOT engineers hosted a meeting in the Harford Township building to describe a plan to replace a 12-foot span on Route 547 over Leslie Creek in the middle of Harford village. At that time the project was expected to begin the following summer with an archeological study, and take all of about 3-4 months. The old bridge had stood for 73 years.

Now, in mid-April 2007, the new bridge (actually a "box culvert") is complete. The new passage is somewhat wider, a little longer, and restores the little town's Main Street for upcoming heavier summer traffic. The two sets of traffic lights that controlled traffic during construction have been removed and work is continuing to remove the temporary bypass that has carried traffic since last summer around the site.
