Thanksgiving holiday shopping on Loop 281? Road constructionofficials say all lanes of traffic are open for business.
As promised, work crews are moving out of traffic’s way on asix-mile stretch of Loop 281 in North Longview. that is accordingto Tim Driver, vice president of Texas operations for Flint-basedKnife River Corp.-South.
Since January 2010, Knife River has widened and added medians tothe road between Shofner Drive and U.S. 259 North as part of a$19.9 million project funded with state transportation bondmoney.
“We will not have any lane closures on the loop from (today)through Sunday,” Driver said. “We want to minimize thedelays/impacts to the traveling public as much as possible.”
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, Knife Riveris nearly 84 percent complete with the project.
Nightly cold temperatures have delayed asphalt paving on theproject. Paving will continue next week, Driver said, on nightswhere the temperature is above 50 degrees. While Driver believesKnife River needs about 10 more nights for paving, the NationalWeather Service has forecast nightly lows in the mid-to-upper 30sbeginning Saturday and heading into the work week.
“We are working closely with TxDOT to minimize the impacts tothe traveling public over the holidays and the time betweenThanksgiving and Christmas,” Driver said.
For many shoppers, Black Friday this year evolved from a predawn sprint to an overnight marathon.
Legions headed out Thursday night as some major retailers, including Target, best Buy Toys R Us, Macy’s and Bon-Ton began offering promotional prices at midnight or earlier.
Some Black Friday veterans said the early hours brought out more and different shoppers. Stan Stravinskas, of Scranton, shopped all night, getting deals on everything from ladders to diapers. he said the staggered store openings increased shoppers’ chances of scoring great deals.
"There’s a lot of people who will not come out and stand in the cold at 4 a.m.," he said. "But those people will go out at midnight."
Dana Zimmerman, of Scranton, sat on the floor at the Mall at Steamtown at 4:30 a.m., as she waited for Radio Shack to open at 5:30.
"I’ve actually been out since 8 o’clock last night," miss Zimmerman said. She already had been to Target, Walmart and the Viewmont Mall before her stop at the downtown mall, where she planned to buy a global-positioning system for a friend.
Effects of the frail economy caused some shoppers to scale back on spending and promotional premiums helped drive crowds to several retail locations.
Sarah Morreale, of Dupont, shivered in 35-degree temperatures as she sat in a folding chair wrapped in a blanket at 5 a.m. at the Shoppes at Montage in Moosic.
Miss Morreale arrived at midnight and was at the front of a line of at least 80 people waiting for a distribution of 250 promotional gift cards at 7 a.m.
"This is the craziest thing I’ve ever done. I never went Black Friday shopping before," miss Morreale said. "I’m freezing."
Others arrived early at the Mall at Steamtown as Boscovs distributed bonus cards and merchandise to the first 400 shoppers who appeared at its 4 a.m. opening.
"The Boscovs’ giveaways brought me out," miss Zimmerman said.
The giveaways also brought out Patrick Murphy, of Scranton, who wore a Santa cap as he strolled through the mall concourse.
"I was out for the freebies at Boscov’s, but they are all gone already," he said at about 4:30 a.m.
Mr. Murphy said he had reason to seek promotional handouts because he is cutting back on holiday spending.
"I would probably be spending more if I had more money, but the money is tight," he said. "I don’t have that much and that’s why I come out on Black Friday. The deals are a little better. Obviously, the free stuff is good."
Nearby, Karen Butler, of Spring Brook Twp., talked about why she is trimming spending as she took a break on a bench outside Boscov’s second-floor entrance.
"I worked at Ocean Logistics in Dunmore for 34 years and they closed," Mrs. Butler said. "All of a sudden, after being out of a job, it’s just tighter.
"it would have been nice to have a TV coming in this year, but that didn’t happen."
Shoppers expressed mixed feelings about the earlier starting times for Black Friday specials.
Bargain hunters, such as Kera Bombar, of Jermyn, loved the early start.
"best Black Friday ever," she said at 6 a.m., her 13th hour of shopping, outside JCPenney at the Viewmont Mall. She barely finished Thanksgiving dinner before heading out to Hhgregg in Dickson City to score a television for about $200 after the rebate. Joined by her brother, Alec, and friend, Reina Gaiardo, of Jessup, they made the rounds buying gifts and clothing and snacked on Chinese food at the Viewmont Mall food court at 3 a.m.
Mr. Bombar, though, saw a downside to the early start.
"People are running around from store to store and they haven’t even digested their meal," he said.
Toys R Us opened at 9 on Thanksgiving evening, but some shoppers were waiting much earlier. Kendra Balendy and her daughter, Lisa, stood in front of the entrance of Toys R Us for six hours with just one goal in mind: Nintendo DS games to put under the Christmas tree.
The Scranton woman has been scooping up Black Friday deals for a decade, and this year was no different.
"we had Thanksgiving dinner at 1 p.m. and I cooked for 20 people," Mrs. Balendy said. "we always do an early dinner so we can get out here to get the deals."
After cleaning up the kitchen and putting away the leftovers, she and her daughter arrived at Toys R Us around 3 p.m. – a full half-hour before any other deal seekers arrived to line up for the store opening at 9 p.m.
At the best Buy in the Arena Hub in Wilkes-Barre Twp, people camped out at the store before its midnight opening. Later, the line stretched almost to the vacant of its former competitor, the now-defunct Circuit City. The big draw was a 42-inch TV on sale for $199.99, which sold out in a half hour, said manager Chuck Sullick. More than eight hours later, only one Xbox 360 on sale for $199.99 remained.
Mr. Sullick said customers were excited by the midnight opening.
"they were able to hit more stores," he said.
While the clock ticked and motorists cruised for spots outside Target and Walmart in Dickson City, Ron Carter was an island of calm ensconced in a comfy corner chair at Starbucks, nursing a little java while waiting for his wife to return from a mission from Target.
"This is my first time Black Friday shopping – ever," mr. Carter said. "It’s a little chaotic, but there are some good deals."
When they arrived around midnight "there was no parking, anywhere," said mr. Carter, who said he was finally able to squeeze into a space near the coffee shop.
Pre-midnight specials left some bargain-hunters pleased with their efficiency.
"I’m finishing up Christmas shopping already," Karl Lynott, of Scranton said at 5:15 a.m., as he loaded a fireplace entertainment center in the back of his sport-utility vehicle at Christmas Tree Shops at the Shoppes at Montage.
Mr. Lynott started his spree at 10 p.m. Thursday.
"You have to have a plan," he said. "now, I’m going to go home and go to bed."

For several hundred years, the preferred materials to produce blankets were cotton and wool. at certain times and in particular conditions, animal hides and various plant fibers have been employed, yet we keep coming back to to the most dependable materials to produce and fabricate into substantial, warm pieces of bedding.
If you are looking for some substantial and easily cleaned blankets which should hang around for a long time, make a point to check out one or two of the alternatives we have reviewed in the next paragraphs.
JCPenney features a number of types of cotton blankets, although their finest product is the Linden Street Egyptian cotton blanket. this blanket is crafted using the world-renowned cotton that is cultivated along the Nile River and features the greatest cotton fibers obtainable. the long fibers lend this material a softness which is extremely difficult to approximate with any other sort of cotton. Linden Street blankets are available in a wide variety of colors to enhance your pillows and comforters, and are 6 inches longer than standard blankets, making these products suitable for college dorms. a Queen size blanket may be bought for $60.
If you prefer your cotton American made and your blanket slightly more trendy, Land’s End offers a top of the line Supima Elite Cotton Blanket crafted from the finest domestic cotton. the Supima fibers are combed for remarkable softness and the specific weave of these blankets creates both airflow and warmth, making them superb for year-round use. for whatever reason these domestically raised and woven blankets are more expensive than JCPenney’s imported products, however. a Queen sized blanket from Land’s End can run $71.50 before the shipping fees. Another must see are the multiple types of Twin Bed Sheets.
Wool is slightly more expensive than cotton and not as simple to clean. however, when correctly manufactured it could be very nearly as smooth and it is considerably warmer on a cold night. Pendleton has been making superior woolen products for in excess of a hundred years, and their Eco-Wise Wool is evidence of this company’s old-fashioned craftsmanship as well as their latest progress in eco-friendly stewardship. their Eco-Wise Easy-Care blankets will be machine washable in cold water and are woven from 100% pure virgin wool. an Eco-Wise Queen size blanket costs $148. a nice one to check out various types of the Pink & Green Bedspread.
If your likes are more international and you like your wool from sheep with an interesting accent, Garnet Hill sells Merino Wool blankets. Merino wool is the world’s most expensive wool and is sought after for its softness and strength. These blankets are somewhat oversized to allow for thicker mattresses and are edged with a satin binding. These blankets happen to be manufactured in Australia, so when one considers the transportation fees and the total quality of these blankets, the $230 cost for a queen sized blanket is not exactly outrageous. These blankets have to be dry cleaned, by the way.
Investigators for the Gainesville Police Department said the scheme appears to be a money laundering scam involving counterfeit $100 bills. And the same scheme was run earlier this fall, too, likely by the same suspects, police said.
According to arrest reports, Officer Derek Tirado pulled over one of the suspects in The Oaks Mall parking lot in Gainesville around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday and discovered the man was carrying a driver’s license bearing his name and photograph but with someone else’s license number.
When the license number was run through the state computer system, it showed another person’s photograph. The computer check also showed the man carrying the license was wanted in Lake County for driving on a suspended license.
However, the man’s bigger problem may be that the Secret Service has been notified that he and an alleged accomplice have been charged with using counterfeit currency.
Tirado was dispatched to the mall because JCPenney employees at The Oaks Mall suspected the two men and a third person had used counterfeit $100 bills on Tuesday to buy items at JCPenney stores in Gainesville, Ocala, Lake City and two Georgia cities, then returned the items and received genuine U.S. currency, effectively trading fake cash for real money.
Detective Jeff Dorminey was called in on the case to review surveillance images of the men recorded earlier this fall and again on Tuesday, according to police.
The driver was identified as Thomas McKnight, 24, of Leesburg, and his accomplice as Danny Senatus, 23, of Orlando.
Both men were charged with scheme to defraud and obtain property as well as organized dealing in stolen property. McKnight was additionally charged with unauthorized possession of a forged driver’s license.
On Wednesday, investigators were still looking for a third, unidentified suspect in the case.
Police said the investigation was continuing in conjunction with investigators in several other locations as well as with federal officials.
