  1. Pennsylvania State Police Vehicles Going Gray Posted 5:22 pm, July 19, 2017, by Jim Hamill, Updated at 08:38PM, July 19, 2017 Print Reddit Tumblr PSP Move to Gray Patrol Cars h <div>Please enable Javascript to watch this video</div> DUNMORE -- Here in Pennsylvania, from Pittsburgh to Philly and everywhere in between, we're used to seeing state police in white vehicles, responding to emergencies or just a routine day on the road. Now, those vehicles are turning a darker shade one by one as the state updates the fleet. "This is one of the things they looked at and wanted to change. They wanted the public to make an association with the gray car to match the gray trooper uniform," said Tpr. Mark Keyes, Pennsylvania State Police. At the state police barracks in Dunmore, Trooper Mark Keyes showed off the new look of a state police SUV. It's gray all over and on the side, in all caps, the word "Trooper." "It's reflective at night. They wanted the trooper vehicles to be readily identifiable." Troopers explained there are some for whom it will take some getting used to the new gray sedans and SUVs. "We've had a few people remark about being pulled over and not sure who was pulling them over because they're not used to seeing the gray cars." For decades, white has been the color of state police cruisers throughout the Commonwealth. Now as each of the old vehicles get phased out, new gray ones will be replacing them all across the state. "When they see it's a trooper vehicle, they're shocked. We get a lot of compliments," said Cpl. Manny Hicks. Troopers gave Newswatch 16 a ride in a new gray Ford Interceptor. "It's nice. I like that it says 'Trooper' on the side," said Destinney Matthews of Scranton. "I think it's a stunning color. It blends with highway patrol and the support our officers give us," said Steve Szydlowski of Moosic. State police vehicles were gray more than 50 years ago. The change back to gray should take three years as each white vehicle that goes out of service is replaced by a gray one.

  2. Woman kayaker in Amazon shot dead by pirates who robbed for her GoPro The Sun Sept.19, 2017 Emma Kelty, 43, of Britain had been on a solo kayaking trip through the Amazon when she was shot dead by pirates, authorities said. A British adventurer who had been on a solo kayaking trip through the Amazon was shot dead by pirates, police have confirmed. Emma Kelty, 43, had been 42 days into her 4,000-mile trip along the Amazon River when she was robbed and fatally shot, with the pirates then throwing her body into the river. Police said her attackers had tried to sell the items they stole from her — including two mobile phones, a tablet and GoPro camera — at a market in Lauro Sodré. A teenager admitted to cops that he and six others robbed and killed Emma. It comes after the former Brit head teacher posted a series of haunting Facebook messages saying she feared she would be “killed” before she vanished. A kayak found in the Amazon may have belonged to Emma Kelty, 43, who had been 42 days into her 4,000-mile trip along the Amazon River when she was robbed and fatally shot. (Brazilian Navy) She disappeared barely 24 hours after she revealed she had been confronted by 50 men with “arrows and rifles” in the Brazilian rainforest. Her grieving family has since released a statement paying tribute to the adventurer, with her brothers Piers and Giles and her sister Natasha saying: “Emma was an active and determined sister who challenged herself, latterly through her adventures on the Pacific Coast Trail, as well as in the South Pole and Amazon River. “In a world that is today a much smaller place, the explorer in our sister found herself seeking ways to prove that challenges were achievable.” They added: “We are extremely proud of our sister who was dearly loved by us all and her strength will be sorely missed.” Emma’s last known location was around 150 miles west of the jungle city of Manaus, between the towns of Coari and Codajas. Police said Kelty's belongings and orange kayak were found. (Brazilian Navy) But despite her writing two days later that she was “in the clear,” she was in fact going through an area notorious for its pirate attacks and drug traffickers. While Emma has not been found, her belongings were found on the shore with her orange kayak, with local police saying criminals had been trying to sell off some of the items. Local police chief Ivo Martines said the woman had been near a trafficking route, but it was not necessarily linked.

  3. Playmate Jenna Bentley 'sucker punched' by boob, considers breast reduction Fox News Sept.19,2017 Playmate considers breast reduction surgery after nearly knocking herself out with one. (iStock) Playboy model Jenna Bentley is contemplating the future of her chest after an unfortunate beach incident. The model, who has appeared in Playboy and Maxim, said that her 36E natural breasts are getting in the way of her new fitness regimen – and she doesn’t know what to do about it. “I’ve started running and doing weights to keep in shape but my breasts just get in the way. I usually wear a super-strength sports bra but when I really let them fly they sometimes pop out,” she said in a New York Post article. But things got even worse for the buxom blonde when she was working out one morning. “The other week I was sprinting down the beach in California. I was just wearing a bikini but just wanted a fast run out. It was a beautiful morning and the sun was rising. I was going full pelt, leaping over the waves on the shore when suddenly I felt something heavy smack against my chin.” “It felt like I’d been sucker-punched and it knocked me off balance and I fell over. No one else was around and when I looked down I saw my right boob had come out,” she said. “It was like someone had thrown an uppercut at the exact moment I jumped a wave. It could have knocked me out.” However, getting beaten up by her bust isn’t enough for Bentley to get under the knife. Instead, the Playmate has taken her query to her fans. “Before I make a final decision I’ve decided to put it to a vote and I want my fans to let me know what they think. I love my fans and really value their opinions. If I go through with it I’ll let everyone know. I still want my boobs to be big but more manageable.” When Bentley announced on social media that her boobs “are too big for [her] now,” her fans were not having it. The New York Post reported a Twitter user saying: “Jenna Bentley wants breast reduction op! No way please don’t Ur amazing JB. No one wears big boobs like u!” While another reportedly said: “This needs to go to the top. Trump get ya pen out and sign exec order BANNING JB getting smaller breasts.” Though Bentley’s fans are in favor of her curvier form, she’s still on the fence about it. “I love them and they’ve been good to me but I’m doing so much more cardio now as well as weights,” she lamented. “When I’ve told friends what I’m planning to do some flat out tell me ‘no way’ while others understand my problem.” SEE PICTURE ; ( WARNING- SOME EXPOSURE) ;http://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/2017/09/19/playmate-jenna-bentley-sucker-punched-by-boob-considers-breast-reduction.html

  7. 70-Year-Old DuBois Woman Charged for Allegedly Selling Marijuana Posted on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 by Julie Rae Rickard in Crime, Local News, Top Stories DUBOIS – An elderly DuBois woman is facing charges for selling marijuana. Laurel E. Poulson, 70, was charged with felony counts of manufacture/delivery/possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, dealing in proceeds of unlawful acts, criminal conspiracy and a misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance after an incident Jan. 11 at her home. Her bail in this case is $25,000. According to the affidavit of probable cause, the Clearfield County Drug Task Force arranged a controlled purchase of marijuana from Poulson and Hazen L. McCartney. The confidential informant talked with McCartney, who told the informant he was going to purchase marijuana from Poulson, who gets six to seven pounds of the drug every other Tuesday from Oregon. The informant and McCartney then traveled together to Poulson’s residence. Investigators watched as McCartney left the informant’s vehicle and entered Poulson’s residence. After a period of time, McCartney reportedly left the home carrying a large bag in his left hand. He got back into the informant’s vehicle and they left the scene. The two traveled to Penn Highlands DuBois and parked in the lot. There they weighed the marijuana. McCartney explained to the informant that Poulson fronted him a certain amount of marijuana to sell, according to the complaint. When the substance given to the informant was tested, it was found to be 26.22 grams of marijuana, police said. On Jan. 23, another controlled purchase from Poulson was arranged, according to a second criminal complaint. This time an informant went inside the residence and bought marijuana directly from Poulson. Once inside the home, Poulson allegedly made a deal to sell to the informant for the same price she sells to McCartney. She then yelled for “Amber” to bring down “the stuff.” A girl came down the steps with a Tupperware bowl of marijuana, the informant told police. The substance purchased in this case was 26.24 grams of marijuana, according to the report. For the second case Poulson is charged with felony counts of manufacture/delivery/possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, conspiracy, dealing in proceeds of unlawful acts and a misdemeanor count of intentional possession of a controlled substance. Her bail in this case is also $25,000. Amber was identified as Amber M. Jablonski, 22, of DuBois. She is charged with felony counts of manufacture/delivery/possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, and two counts of conspiracy. Her bail is $50,000. McCartney also had drug charges filed against him, but his case is listed as inactive in online court documents. Poulson and Jablonski are scheduled for preliminary hearings on Friday morning. http://gantdaily.com/2017/09/19/70-year-old-dubois-woman-charged-for-allegedly-selling-marijuana/

  9. Woman Allegedly Bites One Clarion Borough Police Officer and Kicks Another After Climbing Out of Cell Tuesday, September 19, 2017 @ 12:09 AM Posted by Kari McQuiston CLARION BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) - A 19-year-old Jersey Shore woman is facing multiple felony charges after she allegedly assaulted two Clarion Borough Police officers during an altercation early Sunday morning at the station. Online court documents indicate that Alexie Dallas Hurlbutt, of Jersey Shore, Pa., is facing the following charges in connection with the incident: Aggravated Assault, Felony 1 (3 counts) Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2 (3 counts) Institutional Vandalism Education Facility, Felony 3 Resist Arrest/Other Law Enforcement, Misdemeanor 2 (3 counts) Disorderly Conduct Hazardous/Physical Offense, Misdemeanor 3 (3 counts) Public Drunkenness And Similar, Summary (3 counts) Purchase Alcohol Beverage By A Minor, Summary Clarion Borough Police Officer Maxwell was on a routine patrol around 1:22 a.m. on Sunday, September 17, when he observed a white female passed out in front of a house along 7th Avenue near George Road, according to a criminal complaint filed in district court. When Officer Maxwell approached the woman, she got up and started to stumble away. “I asked her to stop, and she finally did,” said Officer Maxwell in the criminal complaint. The criminal complaint states that the woman “smelled strongly of an intoxicating beverage and had glassy, bloodshot eyes.” When Officer Maxwell asked her if she needed medical attention, she refused. “I asked her for her name and date of birth but all she told me was her first name – Alexie,” explained Officer Maxwell. Officer Maxwell then placed her under arrest on Public Drunkenness charges. According to the criminal complaint, Officer Maxwell transported her to the Clarion Borough Police station where he attempted to gather additional information. Through further investigation, Officer Maxwell was able to identify the woman as Alexie Dallas Hurlbutt. “She started acting in an unstable manner, so I requested EMS to come to the station,” said Officer Maxwell. Hurlbutt agreed to be evaluated by medical personnel. “She entered the ambulance but gave (medical personnel) so many issues, I had to take her out of the ambulance and cuff her,” said Officer Maxwell. Officer Maxwell then transported Hurlbutt to the Clarion Hospital ER where she was evaluated and cleared. The criminal complaint states that Officer Maxwell asked Hurlbutt if someone could come to the ER to get her, but she refused to cooperate. “I cuffed her in the back, double-locked her cuffs, and then transported her back to the station,” said Officer Maxwell. Upon arrival at the station, Officer Maxwell discovered that she had slipped out of one of the handcuffs while in the back of the police vehicle. Officer Maxwell then instructed Hurlbutt to exit the vehicle, and he attempted to re-cuff her. At this point, Hurlbutt allegedly resisted arrest and attempted to fight Officer Maxwell. “I told her several times to stop resisting, but she refused,” said Officer Maxwell. “I had to take her to the ground to re-cuff her.” At this point, Officer Maxwell requested backup. Once inside the police station, Hurlbutt allegedly continued to resist arrest. Officer Fox arrived and helped Officer Maxwell place Hurlbutt inside “the cage” – a temporary holding cell. Hurlbutt allegedly began to scream and started kicking the cage. At this point, Officer Fox discovered that Hurlbutt had broken a hole in the cell and was attempting to climb out of it. Hurlbutt successfully climbed out of the cell and allegedly started fighting both officers. While Officer Fox attempted to handcuff Hurlbutt to the cage, she allegedly bit him two times on the right shoulder, and then she allegedly kicked Officer Maxwell in the groin. The officers were finally able to handcuff her to the cell and secure her within it. Around 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 17, Hurlbutt was arraigned before on-call District Judge Amy Long Turk. She was placed in the Clarion County Jail and released Monday, September 18, after posting $1,000.00 cash bail. A preliminary hearing is slated for September 26 at 1:30 p.m. with District Judge Duane L. Quinn presiding. http://www.exploreclarion.com/2017/09/19/woman-allegedly-bites-one-clarion-borough-police-officer-and-kicks-another-after-climbing-out-of-cell/

  11. GREAT OUTDOORS 18 hours ago Man tries to barbecue rattlesnake, gets bit on face Fox News An Arizona man has learned not to play with snakes anymore. (iStock) A man in Arizona was attempting to cook a rattlesnake on a barbecue grill when the snake decided to fight back. Victor Pratt, 48, was throwing his child a birthday party when a rattlesnake slithered into his yard. Upon seeing the intruder, Pratt decided to take the opportunity to teach his party guests how to catch and cook a rattlesnake. In a USA Today report, Pratt said he grabbed the venomous snake to show off to his friends and family when he lost his grip on the snake’s head, freeing the snake to attack him. Pratt sustained a bite to the chest and the face. His family immediately rushed Pratt to the hospital, which doctors say saved his life. "If an airway is not established in the first few minutes, in our experience less than 15 to 30 minutes, then those patients really don't have a chance to survive,'' said Dr. Steven Curry, Banner hospital's toxicology director. Rattlesnake venom can cause swelling, paralysis and numbness as well as internal bleeding. "If they can get their airway established, they're very lucky," Curry continued. "That is, you're lucky to have been bitten and been able to make it to the hospital in just a few minutes in order to have those emergency procedures done that are needed to save your life." Pratt was sedated for five days, including during the procedures and his transfer to Phoenix hospital. "I lost five days of memory," Pratt said. "I didn't know where I was for five days." Dr. Curry said keeping patients with face bites sedated is crucial to keep them from pulling out the endotracheal tube. "(If) that endotracheal tube would come out, because of severe neck swelling, it would be difficult or impossible to immediately put it back in or immediately perform ... an emergency tracheotomy," Curry said. "Because if that tube were to come out, then we would expect that they would be in very big trouble immediately, and perhaps might even die in four to five minutes." On average, Banner Hospital sees about 70 snake-bite victims a year, with face bites making up less than 1 percent of the cases. In fatal snake bite cases, the common denominator, Dr. Curry points out, is not receiving medical attention soon enough. "First-aid measures such as tourniquets, ice, incisions or taking the time to apply suctions ... are dangerous and harmful," Curry said. "Or completely ineffective, as in the case of suction." Pratt has learned his lesson though. "Ain't gonna play with snakes no more," Pratt said. http://www.foxnews.com/great-outdoors/2017/09/18/man-tries-to-barbecue-rattlesnake-gets-bit-on-face.html

District spokesperson Kyle Newton said they were made aware of the image Saturday morning, which features Westside High School students spelling out the word "RAPE" with letters painted on their chests. A photo circulating on social media that was sent to FOX Carolina showed four male subjects with the letters painted in pink on their chests and the text "What we do to Daniel" below. Newton said the Daniel versus Westside game was Cancer Awareness Night and the students were initially part of a group that spelled out "BUMP CANCER." "It's kind of ironic that they went there painted for a good cause and because they didn't think through everything this happened," said Anderson District Five Superintendent, Tom Wilson. Newton said school leaders are reminding students and staff that pictures shared through text messages and social media can cause long-term consequences. "This is what can happen to a situation where students made a bad decision but once it gets on social media, it gets ramped up and it really spreads like wildfire," Superintendent Wilson said. "The four have been dealt with. And they're very remorseful, their parents understand that their intent was not to offend." Experts also weighed-in and said this is not something that should be taken lightly. "The fact that rape jokes and those types of things are tolerated in many ways and the fact that students would feel confident or safe enough to do something like that at a family-friendly high school football game also speaks volumes to the way that these teenage boys think about it," said Shauna Galloway-Williams, Director of the Julie Valentine Center in Greenville. The students, two seniors and two sophomores, are being disciplined accordingly, Newton said. "These are four of the best students, academically, behavioral-wise and they just made a bad decision," Wilson said.

  13. ‘Thrill to Kill’ Survivor Remembers Robbery At Gunpoint; Thanks God and Two Customers Tuesday, September 19, 2017 @ 12:09 AM Posted by Ron Wilshire SHIPPENVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – When Shippenville resident Mary Campbell was robbed at gunpoint in the early morning of December 9, 1979, while she worked at the Delmont Stop N Go, she was terrified, and that terror followed her throughout her life. Mary was one of the lucky ones in the path of “Thrill to Kill” murderers Michael J. Travaglia and John C. Lesko who went on an eight-day spree that left four victims dead, including an Apollo police officer. Mary was the only survivor. The death by natural causes of Travaglia on September 4 in a state prison offered some respite for Mary Campbell’s fear. Lesko remains on death row in a state prison in Graterford in Montgomery County. Mary recalls the incident that changed her life. “I had only been there a couple of months,” said Mary. “I started working there around Labor Day, and I was just doing it to get some extra money together for Christmas for us. After the Christmas season was over, I had no intention of working there any further. I just wanted to see that my kids had a half decent Christmas.” Her brief career as an overnight clerk in a convenience store was over after the robbery. “These two men (Travaglia and Lesko) had been in the store several times. They came in at about 12 minutes after five on a Sunday morning, and I thought it was odd they were there that late, and I was used to them coming in at 2:30 or 3. I said hello, and they went through their regular motions, and the next thing you know Travaglia was standing in front of me pointing a gun at me. Lesko had come around the counter and began chopping at a small “dumping” safe they used in those days that was bolted to the counter.” Mary said she was in shock, and she kept saying “please don’t hurt me, I have two children.” Her children were 10 and 11 at that time. Travaglia and Lesko said they weren’t going to hurt her. “Lesko managed to get the safe out of there, and he told me to lay down on the floor, and he was trying to tie me up,” said Mary. “I don’t know why, but he was unable to do it. His hands were shaking. At that point, I looked up at Travaglia, and he had the gun pointed down at me. I knew that that was probably the end of my life. He kept telling Lesko to hurry up. In the meantime, there were two customers headed across the parking lot, and Travaglia said they’ve got to go, there’s someone coming. They grabbed a brown paper bag, and Lesko put the safe in there and started leaving as these two new customers were coming in the door.” The two customers – Richard Stevenson, of Greensburg, and Larry Clawson, of Delmont – were headed for work, but they were also regulars at the store. “I waited until they were completely in the store, and the doors closed behind them, and I finally shouted, ‘Go over there and lock the door – two men just robbed me.’ I told them I was on the floor behind the counter. I couldn’t even get up. By this time, I’m just terrified. One of them came back behind the counter, and he helped me get up, and I said I need to call the police. They said they would stay with me until the police got there and saw that I was safe. In the meantime, my manager was already on her way in. Travaglia and Lesko had that timed right down to the minute. The newspaperman had already left his delivery, and the next thing that was going to happen was that the manager was going to come in for her shift. They knew what time to be there.” She called the police and provided details about the robbery. It turned out that the two thieves only got $800.00. Mary told her manager she wasn’t going to be able to work there any longer. She still thanks God every day that she wakes and the two customers who came when they did. “Afterwards, I would not leave the house, and I was afraid to stay there. My husband worked, and my two kids went to school. We lived in Slickville. I was afraid either way, and I was that way until we moved to Texas in 1981. These men had already been convicted, but it might have been an unreasonable fear that someday they were going to somehow get out of jail either by some good-hearted, goody two shoes who doesn’t understand what it’s like to have a gun on them much less ‘you’re going to die lady’ or that they would escape.” The family moved to Texas because her husband Earl lost a good job as a contract employee with Bell Telephone, and that was also the time the steel industry was collapsing in Pittsburgh. “Still, that fear never left me. It was years before I could go into a gas station and go inside to pay for it. During those days, I didn’t have a credit card and had to pay by cash. I always had to have one of my kids with me, and they would go in and pay for the gas.” Earl had a massive stroke back in 2005, and in 2008, they made the decision to come home and lived in Penn Hills for a year and then decided to move to Shippenville because they liked the area. The couple still lives in their home in Pine Terrace Estates. http://www.exploreclarion.com/2017/09/19/thrill-to-kill-survivor-remembers-robbery-at-gunpoint-thanks-god-and-two-customers/#more-263327
  14. Tree pulled down by hammock nearly paralyzes woman Fox News 10 hours ago A mom in Minnesota was nearly paralyzed after a tree fell on her head, local media reported late last week. Alyssa Pfannenstein, 25, was watching her daughter play in a park over Labor Day weekend, according to reports from CBS Minnesota. She and her boyfriend, Justin Janssen, brought a hammock and tied it up between two birch trees. Unbeknownst to them, one of the trees was rotten inside, the report added. As she was sitting in the hammock with Janssen, one tree reportedly came crashing down on Pfannenstein, leaving her unable to move. “All of a sudden this big boom hit me in the back of the head,” Pfannenstein told CBS Minnesota. “It was surreal. At the moment, there was not even time to panic because it happened so quickly.” Pfannenstein was rushed to a hospital where doctors revealed she’d broken her neck, the report added. Still, her boyfriend said she has a positive attitude and is already making progress. “We just want to appreciate every miracle,” he said. “Accidents happen and we will get through this like anything else.” A GoFundMe page was started in her honor to assist with the expected medical bills.
