This creates thousands of jobs and injects billions of dollars into the state economy. Consumers benefit from deregulated electric choice and competition continues to keep Pennsylvania energy prices below the national average. While we often struggle to attract new businesses, access to markets and the advantage of lower energy prices keep Pennsylvania competitive   Read More ...

A tribute to Roy Halladay from Pro Image Sports shops in South Jersey
Roy Halladay’s brilliance on the mound and sudden death had a profound impact even beyond the fans of the former Phillies ace pitcher.
