In Search of Photos

Does anyone have or do they know where I can find pictures of the Tastee-Freez that was in Emporium in the 1950-60s.?

 My parents, Joe and Joan Manginell owned the Tastee-Freez and we only have one picture of my Dad serving customers at the window.

We'd love to have other pictures or anything else from the Tastee-Freez.

Thanks. Tricia Manginell Hayes

Effective 12/31/16, PennDOT will no longer issue Vehicle Registration stickers

Effective 12/31/16, PennDOT will no longer issue Vehicle Registration stickers

Why is PennDOT going to stop issuing registration stickers? Act 89, signed into law in November 2013, provided for the elimination of vehicle registration stickers. When registration stickers are eliminated, customers can enjoy the convenience of paying their registration fee online from home or a mobile device, printing and signing a permanent registration credential and going about their business, without waiting for delivery by mail

Do I still have to register my vehicle? Yes; Act 89 merely eliminated the need to place a registration sticker on your license plate effective December 31, 2016.

How much money will be saved by not issuing the stickers? The elimination of the registration sticker will realize a cost savings to the commonwealth in excess of $1 million per year.

How will law enforcement know my car is registered? Law enforcement agencies have real-time electronic access to PennDOT’s database to verify a vehicle’s registration. You are still required to maintain a valid and current registration card and present it to law enforcement when asked. Also, the valid and current registration card must still be presented at safety inspections.
