A rally to save Polk Center and prevent its closure began at 10:30 a.m. today in front of the Venango County Courthouse in Franklin. According to reports, approximately 400 people are there.

The call for a public rally was prompted by an Aug. 14 announcement by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services that Polk Center and White Haven State Center in Luzerne County would be shut down within the next three years.

For more coverage of the rally, see tomorrow's newspaper or visit TheDerrick.com.
