    HARRISBURG (KDKA) – Gov. Tom Wolf is proposing moving nearly $200 million from the Horse Racing Development Fund into a scholarship program for college students at the state’s schools. Gov. Tom Wolf says the goal is to help students graduate with less debt and encourage them to stay in Pennsylvania once they start their careers. He said it would help at least 44,000 students. The scholarship is for full-time undergraduate students who have a household income of under $104,800. In exchange, the students agree to stay in Pennsylvania after graduation for the same number of years which they got the scholarship, or else it becomes a low-interest loan. It’s part of Wolf’s 2021 legislative plan. You can read about the scholarship here.

This Overlooked Federal Mortgage Program Could Save You Thousands A mortgage program originally intended to revitalize rural communities may not be often-used, but it sure does have its benefits.

    Rookie Justin Herbert is 0-3 (2-1 ATS) as the starting quarterback of the Los Angeles Chargers, but his numbers have been substantially better than the winless record indicates. In three games, Herbert has completed 72 percent of his passes for 931 yards while throwing for five touchdowns and averaging 8.7 yards per attempt. Herbert was named the starter going forward by Chargers coach Anthony Lynn this week. It was a difficult decision considering Tyrod Taylor essentially lost the job due to a punctured lung that he suffered while a team doctor administered painkillers. However, the numbers do not lie that the Chargers offense has been more explosive down the field with Herbert as the starter as they rank sixth in the NFL in total offense (400.3 ypg) and seventh in passing offense (275 ypg). While the Chargers are going with the youth movement at the quarterback position, the Saints still...

Trump narrowly won the two states in 2016, breaking a quarter century long winning streak by Democrats.

    Virus updates: Boo! CDC shuns trick-or-treating This Popular Steakhouse Chain Is Filing for Bankruptcy Mortgage Rates Vary From State to State. Here’s How to Get the Best Deal if You’re Moving As most of us know from experience, moving’s no easy feat.

    Sarah Ramos has spent her summer anxiously awaiting a fall return to Texas A&M’s campus at College Station. She is hoping for some normalcy after she and her classmates were abruptly forced off campus last semester and into Zoom-based classes for the remainder of the spring due to the coronavirus pandemic. But as Texas scrambles to address a soaring number of COVID-19 cases, Ramos is worried her upcoming course load could once again be moved online. That’s just not the college experience she’s looking for. So now, Ramos says she’s considering withdrawing from A&M for the fall and delaying her upcoming graduation. “I do want to return to school, but the likelihood of that is teetering right now,” said Ramos, who’s working at a grocery store over the summer to save up for tuition. “I want the best education possible, and I really don't think that I can get that...
