The 146th District representative said the absentee ballots are still being counted.
Rep. Thomas Quigley (R-146) told Patch today that there are still quite a few absentee votes to be counted before the outcome of his race against Mark Painter is determined. "Its my understanding that they're still counting," Quigley said. Unofficial results indicated Painter had pulled off an upset victory over Quigley in Tuesday's election by just over 200 votes. However, due to the delayed deadline to turn in absentee ballots, some votes were not turned in to the county until Monday, November 5. "We'll know for sure [who won] probably next week," Quigley said.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission held two public meetings on Thursday - one at 2 p.m. and one at 7 p.m. - to present the license renewal process of nuclear reactors and to hear comments from the public. As a part of the renewal process, the NRC is required to hear the public's opinions and consider them in the approval or denial of nuclear reactor license extensions.

There are 104 reactors in the United States and 71 are approved for renewal, while 13 (including the two at Limerick) are under review. Overall, the public honed 30 presentations - a few that were …
