Danville Teachers Go on Strike

DANVILLE — Close to 200 Danville Area School District teachers walked off the job and onto the picket lines. The teachers have been working without a contract since 2012.

After a last-minute negotiation session ended Wednesday night without an agreement, the strike began at 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

“If we did not feel we were doing the right thing, we would not be out here,” Dave Fortunato said.

Teachers’ union president Dave Fortunato says the teachers are making lower salaries than they deserve.

“Out of the 17 districts in the IU, we are ranked 9th on the average salary. We’re number one on every other category educationally,” Fortunato said.

The president of the state’s education association calls the teachers’ strike a last resort.

Diagnosing AVM

There’s a 15 year old in Northumberland County living a normal teenage life right now despite a brush with death just six months ago.

A sudden terrible headache turned into a nightmare for him, and his family.

Marcos Velazquez, or Mikey as his family calls him, remembers a Sunday afternoon last November at his home in Shamokin.  It was a lazy day. Mom and dad were watching a movie and he was in his room.

“About a half hour later, it felt like screws were going into the side of my head,” Mikey recalled.

Mom Jessica Lopez went to get him a pain reliever, but dad Marcos, or Mike, instantly knew something was up.

“I had a chill run down my spine when he told me his head was about to explode.”

Soon after, Mikey vomited repeatedly and his parents took him to an ER close by.  Staff there took one look at a CAT scan and got him on a helicopter to Geisinger Medical Center near Danville.
