  3. Florida dog left alone in car, drives in circles for hours by CNN Newsource Friday, November 22nd 2019 AA Florida dog left alone in car, drives in circles for hours (CNN Newsource)<br>) PORT ST LUCIE, Fla. (CNN) — In Florida Thursday, a dog decided to take the family car for a drive. Actually, the owner left the dog in the running car and it took off, driving circles -- in reverse. WATCH BELOW Residents who live in the Port St. Lucie neighborhood say it's pretty quiet, but imagine this: At 8:30 a.m., they walked outside and saw something they couldn’t believe. "There's a cop out there now. I think he's going to try to get into it,” said resident Annie Sabol. "First I thought I saw somebody backing up, but then they kept going and I'm like, 'OK, what are they doing?' And the cops came and I'm like. 'OK,'” says Sabol. It happened at around 8:30 a.m. “Then the fire department showed up and I'm like, 'OK,'" Sabol said. But if you look closely, you can see a driver -- well, sort of. "Then I saw the dog get out of the car, a big black lab or something, and I'm like, 'OK! This is turning weird,'" Sabol said. Turns out the human driver left the car running when he stepped out for a moment -- and police say the car was accidentally left in reverse with the dog inside. You can see the tire tread marks on the street -- and a smashed mailbox that got in the way. We talked to the homeowner. He didn't want to go on camera but tells us the car's owner says he'll replace it. In the meantime, residents continue to talk about the day it wasn't so quiet in their quiet neighborhood. "I saw this car going around in a circle, and it was doing it for about an hour. And when the cops got the door open, a black dog jumped out. I was like, 'They should give that thing a license,'" said Sabol. There is still some debris where this happened. Neighbors say that once that car finally stopped, they were just glad no one was injured. https://wjactv.com/news/offbeat/florida-dog-left-alone-in-car-drives-in-circles-for-hours

  5. Roar on the Shore Organizers Suspend Bike Rally for 2020 November 22, 2019 12:40 am· Author: Jill McDermott ERIE, Pa. – The annual Roar on the Shore Bike Week charity event has been canceled for 2020. (Photo courtesy of Roar on the Shore.) Instead, a memorial ride will be held in July to honor organization founder Ralph Pontillo who passed away at his home in Florida in September, according to the group’s official website. The group that has donated more than $1,000,000.00 to charities from the event celebrated its 13th year in July of 2019. According to a published article on ErieNewsNow.com, the 2019 event was moved from downtown Erie to the Lake Erie Speedway when city officials declined to cover the costs of police security and other services. It is unknown if there are plans to revive the event in the future. Roar on the Shore Bike Week is a trademarked name for the nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. It has contributed to such organizations as the Boys & Girls Club of Erie, The Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pa., Shriners Hospital for Children-Erie, and other organizations. Details for the Ralph Pontillo memorial ride have not yet been finalized. For more information, visit the group’s website Roarontheshore.com. Roar on the Shore’s full statement: Following significant research, analysis and discussion, the Roar on the Shore Board of Directors today announced that it has officially suspended plans to host the Roar on the Shore® Bike Week in 2020. Organizers plan to hold a memorial ride in July to honor the memory of Ralph Pontillo, a great leader and the charitable event’s executive director who passed away unexpectedly in September 2019 at his home in Florida. Details of the memorial ride will be released at a later time. “The Roar on the Shore Board of Directors would like to thank the thousands of volunteers, partners, sponsors, vendors, citizens of Erie, participants from around country and the Manufacturer & Business Association (MBA), as the founding sponsor, for their role in making Roar on the Shore® one of the biggest charitable events our community has ever seen, while simultaneously injecting millions annually into our local economy,” the Board stated. “We appreciate all of their support over the past 13 years and encourage them to join us for the charitable memorial ride this summer.” In 2007, the MBA created the Roar on the Shore® to raise funds for a worthy charity each year. Recognizing early on the potential of the event, it was decided to create Roar on the Shore® Bike Week as a stand-alone 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity. Since its inception, Roar® has raised and donated nearly $1 million to charitable organizations. Past recipients include: John Kanzius Research, Shriners Hospitals for Children – Erie, local veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, SafeNet’s Big Backyard Children’s Garden, the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pa., the Perry 200 Commemoration, Boys & Girls Club of Erie, Saint Patrick’s Haven, Erie Homes for Children & Adults’ Project First Step, St. Martin Center Playground, Mercy Center for Women and the Sarah A. Reed Children’s Center. In 2019, Allstate Roar on the Shore® Bike Week donated $25,000 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Erie County’s (NAMI) Homefront program. https://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/roar-on-the-shore-organizers-suspend-bike-rally-for-2020/

  7. Woman Facing Charges for Hiding Wanted Man November 22, 2019 12:40 am· Author: Aly Delp REYNOLDSVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – A Reynoldsville woman is facing charges after she allegedly hid a man who was wanted by police on a warrant and lied to officers about his whereabouts. Court documents indicate the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 50-year-old Loretta McKay, of Reynoldsville. According to a criminal complaint, Sgt. Murray of the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department and Deputies Yingling, Ellenberger, and Metacic of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office were attempting to serve a warrant on a known male after receiving a tip the man was staying with Loretta McKay at a residence on Jackson Street in Reynoldsville. The officers responded to the residence and knocked on the door, and McKay and a second known man came to the door. Sgt. Murray explained the officers were looking for the known man and asked McKay and the second known man if they knew his whereabouts. According to the complaint, they said they had not seen the known man for at least a week. Sgt. Murray then explained that he was wanted on a warrant and asked if they could look inside and see if he was there. The complaint notes that McKay said “no” and stated “He is not here. I have not seen him.” Sgt. Murray then explained it was important that they be honest with the officers, because if it was found that the wanted man was there, they could both go to jail for concealing his whereabouts. According to the complaint, McKay got upset after a few minutes and said she was going upstairs to use the restroom. At that time, the second known man told Sgt. Murray that the wanted man was upstairs in McKay’s bedroom. The wanted man was then apprehended in the residence. McKay was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Gregory M Bazylak at 8:52 a.m. on Wednesday, November 20, on the following charges: – Hinder Apprehension/Prosecution-Harbor Or Conceal, Misdemeanor 2 – Hinder Apprehension/Prosecution-False Info To LEO, Misdemeanor 2 She remains free on $10,000.00 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. on December 19, with Judge Inzana presiding. https://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/woman-facing-charges-for-hiding-wanted-man/

Courtesy of Kourtney Krietemeier “Of course, it’s super happy, but at the same time, there’s this sadness, there’s that thing that’s missing,” Krietemeier explained. She couldn't stop thinking about the traditional father-daughter dance. “I was excited to dance with my mom, but I kept thinking about my dad,” she admitted. “I wanted him there too. I was kind of dreading that moment. But it ended up being one of the most joyful parts of the day.

All have been in constant communication with the family since Young passed away 14 years ago. Kelly Young asked the DJ play Paul Simon's "Father and Daughter," which has special meaning for Krietemeier. When she was a little girl, Young played the song when he presented her with a replica of his police badge. Kourtney Krietemeier wrapped her dad's favorite necklace around her bouquet. Courtesy of Rogue Film Co. "The lyrics are a snapshot of the infinite, indescribable love Donnie had for Kourtney," Officer Danny Veith told TODAY Parents. Krietemeier was overwhelmed by the gesture. “I ugly cried,” she admitted. “Having them tell me they were proud of me and how proud my dad would be, it was so comforting.” SEE VIDEO ; https://www.today.com/parents/police-dance-daughter-fallen-officer-wedding-t167996

  12. Pennsylvania on verge of extending time for abuse charges by MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press Thursday, November 21st 2019 AA Pennsylvania on verge of extending time for abuse charges (AP photo) HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A bill to provide more time to file charges or lawsuits over sexual abuse is on its way to Pennsylvania's governor. The House sent the statute-of-limitations bill to Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf with a 182-5 vote on Thursday. The House also sent legislation to invalidate confidentiality agreements that aim to keep child sexual abuse victims from talking to investigators. Wolf says he'll sign the bills and companion legislation clarifying penalties for mandated reporters who don't report suspected child abuse. The move capped a debate propelled by last year's landmark grand jury report into child molestation by Roman Catholic priests. A proposed constitutional amendment to give now-adult victims of child sexual abuse a new opportunity to sue abusers and institutions has passed both chambers but must do so again in the 2021-22 session. https://wjactv.com/news/local/lawmakers-near-final-vote-on-child-sexual-abuse-legislation-11-21-2019
  13. Pennsylvania moves to raise cigarettes, tobacco age to 21 by Associated Press Thursday, November 21st 2019 AA E-cigarette<p>{/p} HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania is moving to join 18 other states and ban the purchase of cigarettes and other tobacco products by people under 21, although it's maintaining an exception for military veterans or service members who are at least 18. Gov. Tom Wolf's office said he'd sign legislation that passed both chambers of the state Legislature on Thursday. Under it, the legal age to buy tobacco products will rise from 18 to 21 in Pennsylvania, unless a person meets the military service exception. The higher age takes effect next July 1. Tobacco products include electronic cigarettes and natural and synthetic nicotine products. The American Lung Association says 50% of the United States' population already lives in a state or community that has passed a law raising the age to buy tobacco products to 21. https://wjactv.com/news/local/pennsylvania-moves-to-raise-cigarettes-tobacco-age-to-21
  14. BREAKING NEWS: Former Deputy Sheriff Who Stole Money from K9 Program Sentenced to Probation November 21, 2019 10:43 am· Author: Aly Delp BROOKVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – A former Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff who stole funds intended for the Jefferson County K-9 program was sentenced to probation on Thursday. Kyle Pisarcik, 25, of Sykesville, entered a negotiated plea of no contest to one first degree misdemeanor count of forgery before Senior Judge Richard A. Masson on Thursday morning at the Jefferson County Courthouse. Pisarcik was sentenced to two years probation. Restitution has already been paid in full. As a result of the plea agreement, the following charges were dropped: – Theft by Deception-False Impression, Felony 3 The charges stem from an investigation into alleged theft from the Jefferson County K-9 Program. Details of the case According to a criminal complaint, Special Agent Seefeld, of the Bureau of Criminal Investigations, was assigned to investigate allegations of theft and forgery against Kyle Pisarcik, a former Deputy Sheriff with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO). The complaint notes that in 2017, Pisarcik wanted to become a K-9 handler, so he and the JCSO raised the necessary funds to buy K-9, Iron, and establish a checking account at a local bank for a K-9 program. As part of Pisarcik’s responsibilities as a K-9 handler, he was in charge of purchasing the necessary supplies for care and training. Pisarcik was made a signatory on the checking account and was required to obtain approval from either Sheriff Carl Gotwald Sr., Chief Deputy Sandra Means, or James Vansteenberg, Treasurer of Jefferson County, before making any purchases related to the K-9 program. According to the complaint, on August 2, 2018, while preparing the checking account for audit, Sheriff Gotwald discovered that some of the supporting documents provided by Pisarcik for his purchases from Leerburg Enterprises, Inc. were not sufficient to reconcile the account. As a result, on October 18, 2018, Sheriff Gotwald contacted Leerburg who stated that Pisarcik did have an account with the company, but neither he nor the JCSO made any of the purchases that Pisarcik is claiming. Sheriff Gotwald then called Pisarcik into his office along with Means and Sergeant Samuel Bartley. According to the complaint, Pisarcik said he did not understand why there was no record of his purchases from Leerburg. Sheriff Gotwald instructed Pisarcik to obtain his receipts and credit card statements for proof of purchase. The complaint notes that on October 19, 2018, Pisarcik informed Sheriff Gotwald that he had written the checks to himself without making any purchases from Leerburg and said that he had some financial problems and wrote the checks to himself because he needed the money. Pisarcik then resigned and repaid the money for the two fraudulent Leerburg purchases and other purchases that he made via the bank checking account, which totaled $4,865.75. According to the complaint, initially, the $4,865.75 was thought to be all of the money that Pisarcik owed to the JCSO; however, Nicholas Scaife, Accountant for the JCSO, audited the checking account and discovered some additional issues: Pisarcik submitted two fraudulent invoices from Haag’s Feed Store & Milling LLC (Haag’s), totaling $660.00. The complaint notes that Haag’s provided Sheriff Gotwald and Scaife with a sample invoice, which did not resemble the invoices submitted by Pisarcik. Pisarcik also submitted a fraudulent invoice from Shallow Creek Kennels, Inc. (Shallow Creek) for $5,100.78. Sheriff Gotwald called Shallow Creek and requested a copy of all invoices from the JCSO. There was no transaction from Shallow Creek for $5,100.78. All of Shallow Creek’s invoice numbers begin with a “17”; however, Pisarcik’s invoice began with an “82”. Lastly, Scaife discovered an invoice from Shallow Creek for $350.00 that appears to be fraudulent because the invoice number, 172496, is not on Shallow Creek’s “all transactions list,” which includes everything purchased by the JCSO. Based on Special Agent Seefeld’s investigation, it was determined that Pisarcik currently owes $5,978.44 to the JCSO. Pisarcik was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 24.
