Let the battle begin. Now that full details have been released on the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission's 422 tolling proposal, the political fight begins.

A 74-year old Gilbertsville woman who claimed she was not aware she had struck and killed a pedestrian while driving in Upper Providence in April will be held for trial on hit-and-run related charges. [Inquirer]

A 200-lb. black bear ran roughshod over a Gilbertsville neighborhood yesterday before state game officials managed to shoot it with a tranquilizer dart from its perch in one man's front lawn. [WPVI]
