Interesting history on line about this airport. Apparently it had a lot of activity in the day. Maybe it is time to just close it since tax dollars seem to keep it running. Oh gads, I am starting to sound like a republican.

I'm sure glad they sent $250 million in emergency aid to Egypt while this is going on!

Rick:

I agree with you. We should not subsidize any airport.

THAT is one way you trim the budget!

Oh, but Joe Biden can run up more than $1 million dollars in hotel bills in London and Paris - no problem. And Obama promised the Jordanians $200 million dollars today.

This whole sequester/cuts thing is hogwash.

WOWEE, Kazowee BOZO, I mean Gabe. How fortunate for Us that the media got this story to us before you gouged the taxpayers into believing the Montoursville Airport was on its' way to becoming a "Hub of Transportation" for your Re-re-redesign of Williamsport. Maybe turn the tower into an 'Entertainment Zone'!!!

Light rail is the way of the future, my fellow citizens. In a town this size with MOST of the GOOD Shopping, entertainment, sports, and recreation somewhere else, what better plan could there be? We have the track and we have the space... just think of it, Lock Haven, Lewisburg, Wilkes-Barre only minutes away!! Talk about trying to find a room during College week or Little League!! FILL Them Hotels before they become abandoned crack houses and fire traps! Get that money from folks who want to come to Williamsport and Get the Heck outta here Fast! Light Rail, and a City Manager form of Government!! Give Billtown that "Promising Future" we used to believe in.

"I'm sure glad they sent $250 million in emergency aid to Egypt while this is going on!"

Should I be surprised how many people don't have clue number one how money is allocated at the federal level? Money is allocated in very SPECIFIC piles through acts of Congress.

It's against the law to take money allocated by Congress for one purpose, and spend it on something else. If you didn't know that, well then you've yet again commented on something you know absolutely nothing about.

Did you sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night or something?
