ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY The federal and state governments are both looking to tax tobacco. President Barack Obama signed the State Childrens Health Insurance Program into law Wednesday. One of the S-CHIPs funding sources is a hike in tobacco taxes. And that comes at the same time that the state wants to increase its tobacco tax to help the budget. People that own tobacco shops say the tax hikes are going to hurt them and their customers. And one man said it could put him out of business. ********************RYO PEOPLE******************* The tax hike to fund S-CHIP is going to increase the price of cigarettes by about 60 cents per pack and about 40 cents per cigar. But the biggest increase would take the taxes on a pound of loose tobacco from about one dollar to almost 25 dollars. That would triple the cost of the product. And Governor Ed Rendell wants to increase state taxes too. It would be about ten cents more a pack. He wants to tax smokeless tobacco and cigars for the first time. He says it will generate more than 100 million dollars in revenue. But Terry Dandrea says he's just going after an easy target, because only about 25 percent of people smoke. He's one of the owners of Blair Candy Company and Nics Tobacco Outlet. He says tobacco is taxed enough already, and any more is going to hurt business. Art Martino owns Ken's Cigar and Tobacco. He says between state and federal it will be an increase of about 80 cents on every cigar. That would be about 12 hundred dollars in taxes just from what he has in his humidor. He says he can't afford it, and he's not alone. He says if this goes through he won't be able to keep his business open. And Martino says if this happens, they won't be able to tax it for long. He says this is going to push people out of business then there will be nothing left to tax. Most smokers that talked with WTAJ were angry about the tax hikes. But one woman said she was ok with it. She has smoked off and on for 40 years. She admits it's unhealthy so she thinks if they need tax money that is a fine place to start. The federal tax hikes take effect on April first. But the state budget hasn't been approved yet so those numbers could change.

A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City , where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates: You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs. She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads: Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids. 'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.' So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking. 'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads: Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework. 'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!' Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads: Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak. She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads: Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. PLEASE NOTE: To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street. The first floor has wives that love sex. The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

My boy and his best friend were out today sled riding (with his Dad)like they do a lot,but today my sons friend hit a parked Van with his head and chest area and continued underneath.He stopped breathing but luckily the ambulance was there..He is now in the Hospital,I havnt heard any news on how he is doing thus far.But please keep him in your thoughts and prayers
