  3. Pa. Game Commission reaffirms support for Sunday hunting by Bridget McClure Wednesday, April 25th 2018 The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners recently reaffirmed its support of legislative action that would allow for expanded Sunday hunting opportunities. (MGN Online) DUBOIS - The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners recently reaffirmed its support of legislative action that would allow for expanded Sunday hunting opportunities. The resolution is at least the third the Board of Game Commissioners has adopted over the years in support of expanded Sunday hunting. The board’s support has remained consistent through the regular turnover of commissioners due to terms expiring and replacements being appointed. The resolution lists numerous reasons the board supports change including declines in hunting participation, keeping Pennsylvania hunters in Pennsylvania, the potential to generate $629 million in additional spending and the creation of 5,300 new jobs. Hunters in Clearfield County said for many, Sunday is the only day they are free from work and other obligations. "Most people have to work Monday through Friday and a lot of people can't hunt during the week, so their only opportunity is on Saturday," said C.J. Miles. "Maybe opening up Sunday would give them more of an opportunity to get their children interested." Hunters also said they believe it would get more youth involved. "They're (kids) involved in all these different sports and a lot of them are active in the fall," said Teddy Klark. "They have games and practice throughout the week and their parents work throughout the week. They have Saturdays to hunt but what if they're involved in a sport? Their Saturdays are eaten up with games and traveling." Hunter Anthony Rossi said he supports Sunday hunting, but with restrictions. "I feel hunting on Sundays would be okay after 12 p.m.," Rossi said. "That gives people a chance to go to church." Foxes, crows and coyote can be hunted on Sunday. House Bill 71 was introduced in Jan. 2017 to lift the law that restricts hunting on Sundays. No action has been taken on the bill yet. SEE VIDEO REPORT ;

  6. Farmer puts up hilarious sign reminding ‘townies’ of farm animal basics Moving to the British countryside wasn’t what they expected, apparently Share Updated: 12:16 PM EDT Apr 24, 2018 Katie Avis-Riordan Farmer puts up hilarious sign reminding ‘townies’ of farm animal basics Moving to the British countryside wasn’t what they expected, apparently Share The British countryside is synonymous with green pastures, beautiful views and, of course, farm animals. But it seems that some "townies" – a slang term for a person who has moved from a town or city to a rural area – may not realize the realities that come with living in the country. Farmer Stephen Nolan, of Laneside Farm near Chorley in Lancashire, U.K., is exasperated with new neighbors complaining to him about the noise and smells coming from his farm. He's been dealing with such confrontations for the past four years. The main source of the noise is the chickens and geese, so, to answer any questions once and for all, Stephen decided to put up a sign outside the entrance to his land reminding people of some farming basics: The notice says, “This property is a farm. Farms have animals and animals make funny sounds, smell bad and have sex outdoors. Unless you can tolerate the above, don’t buy a property next to a farm." The farm has been in Stephen’s family since his grandfather bought it in the 1930s. When asked about his sign, Stephen told Metro, "I find it baffling that people choose to live in the country and expect there not to be animals. “When we got the complaints made to the council we put the sign [...] Our family has been here since before the war so we are not going to move. We are used to it now and we are carrying on regardless.” Stephen and his wife Anne keep 10 Shire and Clydesdale horses, four pigs and flocks of geese and free-range hens at the farm.

  7. Subway plans to close about 500 U.S. stores this year by Elizabeth Tyree Wednesday, April 25th 2018 (Jeff Roberson, AP) LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- Subway said it's planning to close more U.S. stores while expanding internationally. The company has 44,000 locations globally, more than any other retailer, according to CNN, and 26,000 locations in the United States. The chain said it will shut down about 500 stores this year, on the heels of hundreds of closures over the last two years. Company officials said the chain's sales dropped 4.4-percent last year due to competition from new chains and other fast food options. "Looking out over the next decade, we anticipate having a slightly smaller, but more profitable footprint in North America and a significantly larger footprint in the rest of the world," the company said on Wednesday. It's now launching a new loyalty program, remodeling stores to look sleeker, and adding touch-screen kiosks for ordering. The company said Wednesday it expects stores to close after it rolls out a revitalization plan, CNN reported. Meanwhile, the chain plans to add more than 1,000 stores outside North America, focusing on locations in Britain, Germany, and Asia. SEE TWEET ;

  9. Pa. Senate passes bill that would fine drivers for not removing snow or ice from vehicles by Matthew Stevens Wednesday, April 25th 2018 - A law that would fine motorists in the Commonwealth for not removing snow and ice from their vehicles was unanimously passed by the Senate Wednesday. (file) HARRISBURG, Pa. - A law that would fine motorists in the Commonwealth for not removing snow and ice from their vehicles was unanimously passed by the Senate Wednesday. The legislation was proposed by state Sen. Lisa Boscola and said the law would allow law enforcement officers to fine motorists for not removing snow and ice. Boscola said vehicles that have snow and ice on them cause an extreme danger and can lead to injuries and fatalities. She cited an instance in which a woman was killed Christmas Day several years ago when a slice of ice fell from a truck and crashed through the car's windshield. Boscola said the bill has the backing of state police and that several other states already have a similar law in place. The proposal now goes to House lawmakers. SEE TWEET ;

  11. Judge not allowed back in court after berating ill woman who died: report By Mark Hensch 17 Hours Ago WASHINGTON (CIRCA) – A Florida judge has been instructed not to return to court after controversial video emerged of her berating an ill woman, according to CNN. CNN on Monday reported that Judge Merrilee Ehrlich was witnessed harshly scolding Sandra Faye Twiggs, 59, during an April 15 court appearance. Twiggs was in a wheelchair during her appearance, which was her first on a domestic violence charge. “I am not here to talk about your breathing treatments,” Ehrlich says at one point during the footage. Twiggs’ sister on Monday said her sister suffered from asthma, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Anna Twiggs added she found her sister dead in her bed last week two days after bailing her out of jail. “I love my sister and I miss my sister,” she said. “The judge was so nasty to my sister. She didn’t allow my sister a breathing treatment when she needed one.” Sandra Faye Twiggs was in court on a simple battery charge after a dispute over a fan at her home in Lauderhill, Fla. Chief Judge Jack Tuter released a statement over the weekend criticizing Ehrlich’s treatment of Sandra Faye Twiggs. “I am saddened and disappointed in the way Judge Ehrlich behaved on the video,” said Tuter, who oversees the 17th Circuit Court in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. “In light of recent events, we have decided Judge Ehrlich will not return to the courthouse as her retirement is effective June 30,” he continued. “I will be working to find a substitute to cover Judge Ehrlich’s division.” “All our citizens, no matter what brings them to the courthouse, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.” Tuter added he would reach out to Sandra Faye Twiggs’ family Monday to “extend an apology on behalf of the 17th Circuit for the way their family member was treated by Judge Ehrlich.” “This is no way a reflection of the many hard working judges in the 17th Circuit,” he said. “I will be speaking with all our judges this week to reemphasize the public trust invested in the work we do.” SEE TWEETS, VIDEOS ;
  12. CBS/AP April 24, 2018, 4:55 PM Allison Mack of "Smallville" granted bail in sex cult case Allison Mack attends the "Love, Loss, And What I Wore" new cast member celebration at 44 1/2 on July 29, 2010 in New York City. Bryan Bedder/Getty Images Allison Mack, an actress best known for her role on "Smallville," has been granted bail while fighting several charges regarding her connection to NXIVM, a cult-like group. Mack has been accused of recruiting women into the group and exploiting them. A federal judge in Brooklyn agreed to release the actress on $5 million bond. She will be living with her parents under home detention in California. She has pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking. On Friday, Mack was arrested, and she and alleged cult leader Keith Raniere were indicted on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy. At the end of March, federal prosecutors said they captured Raniere, the leader of NXIVM, who allegedly recruited Hollywood stars and enticed women into the group, making some of them brand themselves with his initials. FBI agents raided a home in New York connected to Raniere, CBS Los Angeles reports. Raniere has called NXIVM a self-help group, but investigators allege it was a multi-level marketing scheme used as a ruse to enslave and traffic women for sex. "As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere. The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants' benefit," U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Richard P. Donoghue said. "This Office and our law enforcement partners are committed to prosecuting predators who victimize others through sex trafficking and forced labor." Court filings say that in 2015, Raniere, who also went by "Vanguard," created a secret sub-organization with NXIVM called "DOS," an acronym for a Latin phrase that loosely translates to "Lord/Master of the Obedient Female Companions," or "The Vow." The filings allege that DOS had levels of women "slaves" headed by "masters" in a pyramid scheme, with Raniere at the top and Mack immediately below Raniere. Mack and other DOS masters allegedly recruited DOS slaves by telling them they were joining an empowering women-only organization that would help them overcome their weaknesses. The women allegedly hid that Raniere, the only man in the organization, was at the top of the pyramid. The filings also say that slaves in DOS were branded in the pelvic region with Raniere's initials. The women were allegedly naked and required to be appear on film while they were branded. An earlier criminal complaint alleges that women were expected to have sex with Raniere and do menial chores for masters. In March, Raniere was arrested outside Puerto Vallarta by Mexican federal police. In a video obtained by Inside Edition, a woman believed to be Mack can be seen and heard as Raniere is taken away. Former NXIVM publicist Frank Parlato told Inside Edition that Mack is "completely enamored with Raniere and completely under his thrall." He also said that Mack and her "Smallville" co-star, Kristin Kreuk, were used as "poster girls for normalizing the group." Kreuk says she left NXIVM years ago and commended the women who exposed DOS. If convicted of the charges, Mack and Raniere each face a minimum of 15 years and up to life in prison.
  13. Powder in car during DUI arrest was Grandpa's ashes, not drugs, report says By Benjamin Brown | Fox News What police in Main thought was heroin turned out to be cremated human remains, a report says. ((.)) When police in Maine pulled over an allegedly impaired driver early Saturday, they thought that two small plastic bags inside the car probably contained heroin. But it turns out that the powdery substance was actually the cremated remains of the father of the vehicle's owner, a report said. Kevin Curtis, 57, said he recently received his father's ashes from his sister in Florida, and still had them inside the vehicle when he loaned the car to his friend, Jesse Legendre, 31. Police spotted the bags when they pulled over Legendre and arrested him on suspicion of impaired driving. With Legendre at the wheel, the vehicle had swerved off a road, crashed into a utility pole, and landed in a ditch, reported. While emergency responders administered the opioid-overdose reversal drug Narcan to revive Legendre, who had passed out, police seized the two bags containing the powder. On Tuesday, Kennebec County Sheriff Ken Mason told the website that test results revealed the substance was not narcotics, but in fact, “human remains; a rather unusual manner in which to keep the remains of a loved one, for sure.” Curtis, who has four children, said he had the remains in the car while waitring for an urn order to arrive. “The kids were really mad when they found out that (the police) took Grandpa, but I tried to make a joke of it. I said, ‘This is the first time he’s ever been in lockup and we’ll just get him out,” he told the website. It took Curtis two days to finally retrieve his father’s remains from the Sheriff’s Office after the test results, the paper reported. As for Legendre, he was charged with operating after habitual offender revocation and falsifying physical evidence, the paper reported. He was not charged for any drug offenses, and was expected to be released on bail. Click here for more from SEE TWEET ;
  14. State lawmaker attacks fellow lawmaker as 'lying homosexual' by Associated Press Tuesday, April 24th 2018 A Republican state lawmaker in Pennsylvania is calling a colleague a "lying homosexual" in a Facebook post attacking liberal legislators. (PA House) HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Republican state lawmaker in Pennsylvania is calling a colleague a "lying homosexual" in a Facebook post attacking liberal legislators. Rep. Daryl Metcalfe also is defending his comments, which he made Friday. He tells The Associated Press that he mentioned the sexual orientation of Democratic Rep. Brian Sims of Philadelphia because Sims has spoken openly about being gay, and because he believes it is "immoral behavior." Sims is calling Metcalfe "Rep. Snowflake McRacist" on Twitter and says Metcalfe "claims victimhood" when he's called out in public. The two lawmakers have clashed for several years. Metcalfe's district is north of Pittsburgh. He is chairman of the House State Government Committee. Metcalfe also recently accosted another state lawmaker for repeatedly touching his arm, and suggested the man might be gay.
