What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, March 15, 2019:

There is good news and bad news when it comes to car insurance.

First the bad news. You must have it to drive a car and it can be expensive.

The good news? While rates in the U.S. are at an all-time high, rates in the Harrisburg and Lancaster areas are holding steady this year.

There are many factors that determine auto insurance rates, including how much coverage you want, a drivers personal driving record, and the myriad of options offered by insurance companies.

So, how do you know if you are getting the best deal and coverage?

Appearing on Smart Talk Friday to discuss car insurance rates in our area and how they are determined are Alyssa Connolly, author of the 2019 State of Auto Insurance Report, with The Zebra, a national car insurance comparison search engine, and Alison Beam, Chief of Staff, Pennsylvania Insurance Department.

Also, The Carlisle Theater is celebrating its 80th birthday this year.

Traveling through Carlisle on any given evening may feel like you have journeyed back in time. There are always pedestrians enjoying the walk-able downtown, that features quaint store fronts. The extensive number of bars, restaurants, and breweries are a big draw, too, especially on the weekends.

But one of icons in the area is The Carlisle Theater. The marquee lights draw attention to special events and movies and remind visitors of a time when a single venue in town provided the only entertainment option.

Joining us on Friday’s Smart Talk to discuss the importance of the historic building to the community is J. Esch McCombie, Carlisle Theatre board member and Kristin Rowe, director of marketing with the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau.
