We're learning just a bit more about this weekend's campaign visit from former President Donald Trump.

Pennsylvania State Police say traffic delays and intermittent road closures are expected between 3-9 p.m. Saturday on several area roads, including both sides of Route 22, both north and south on Route 309 to the area of Route 873 and on Old Packhouse Road. The owners of the nearby Shankweiler's Drive-In theatre decided to reschedule their 90th anniversary celebration, which was planned for Saturday evening, because of Trump's visit. The event is moved to Sunday.

New security measures will be in place within the Allentown School District in less than two months. Beginning April 23, everybody entering Allen High School will have to walk through weapons detectors before getting into the building. By the end of May, the weapons detection systems also will be in place at Dieruff High School and Building 21. If the district determines the detectors to be effective, the systems could later be installed at district middle schools. Two detectors will also be installed at J. Birney Crum Stadium. The detectors are not metal detectors but find guns, knives, bombs and other weapons based on the density of the object.

A young Poconos man is being credited for jumping into the Delaware River to save a struggling bald eagle. Sampson Metzgar says he didn't think about anything other than saving the bird which was struggling in the water. Officials with the Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Center say Metzgar jumped in, and grabbed the eagle Monday afternoon. Metzgar is just 19-years-old, but is the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center's lead avian specialist. The center says he put those handling skills to use on the eagle rescue, the bird survived and is okay.

The U.S. Postal Service is looking to increase the price of first-class stamps by 5 cents, from 68 cents to 73 cents.

The proposed price increase would apply to various mailing categories, including forever stamps, postcards, metered letters, and international mail.

A house bill that would prohibit landlords from inquiring about certain arrest records is winding its way through the state legislature. State Representative Ismail Smith-Wade El says the fair housing measure would ban people who lease properties from looking too far into a person's criminal record as a condition of occupancy. Another bill would create a policy that would seal eviction records. Members of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus back the measures, saying many people trying to find homes are discriminated against or are wrongfully evicted because of their backgrounds.
