SCHUYLKILL HAVEN, Pa. - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is praising an innovative center in Schuylkill County.
Wolf met with officials and students at Penn State Schuylkill for a tour of the school's LionLaunch Innovation Hub.
It's a place where entrepreneurs and business owners in the community can come together and share ideas, which the governor said can result in new and well-paying jobs.
"This is one of the ways we can create those jobs, have entrepreneurs encourage entrepreneurs to take their skills, their talents, their willingness to take risks and start businesses," Wolf told 69 News.
Penn State said it has 20 of these hubs across the state. The first one launched in 2015.
Visitors to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area can use the hiking trails but not the bathrooms. The federal government shutdown means parts of the park are closed until further notice.Read More »
