  1. Report: Woman drove dead boyfriend to gas station, called police by Gary Sinderson and Travis Gary Friday, November 16th 2018 Police said four people are facing charges after they said a man overdosed in a car, was moved to a house, moved back to the car and driven to a gas station. (WJAC) AA STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WJAC) — Police said four people are facing charges after they said a man overdosed in a car, was moved to a house, moved back to the car and driven to a gas station. The criminal complaint said Jada Ferguson was traveling with her boyfriend, Michael Vivian, and Chelsea Mehalick to Williamsport to buy heroin. According to court documents, on the way back on I-80 near Snow Shoe, Michael Vivian became unresponsive in the car and appeared to be de Police said Ferguson didn’t want to call for help because she and Vivian had criminal records, so instead, they went to a house in Snow Shoe, and met a man named Troy Decker, who police said helped drag Vivian's body into the house, where they tried to revive him with CPR. Police said that, when that didn’t work, Decker helped them put Vivian’s body back in the car. Police said Ferguson then decided to go to a gas station with the dead body in the car, planning on telling police she had picked up an unknown hitchhiker who suddenly died in her car. She called police, believing she wouldn’t get in trouble because of the state's new Good Samaritan Law. Police and medics said they quickly determined her story wasn’t true, and that Michael Vivian had died earlier in the day. Police said Jada Ferguson later said, “It’s my fault. I bought the drugs. I killed him.” Ferguson and the drug dealer, Savoy Jennings, are both jailed on $100,000 bail, facing charges of drug delivery resulting in death. Decker is facing charges of abuse of a corpse. Mehalick, who cooperated with police, is only facing misdemeanor charges and has not been jailed. All four are due in court for a preliminary hearing later this month.

  8. Proud American Published 2 days ago Veteran with no family has hundreds show up for funeral in Tennessee By Travis Fedschun | Fox News close Military community rallies around Vietnam vet at his funeral How the military community came together to make sure an unclaimed veteran would not be forgotten in Tennessee. A Marine Corps veteran who was listed as "unclaimed" after he died had hundreds show up at his funeral last week in Tennessee to make sure he wasn't forgotten. Leo Stokley, 69, of Murfreesboro, Tenn. died on Nov. 4 at a nursing home in Ashland City, according to his obituary posted by the Boyd Funeral Home. Stokley was born on June 5, 1949 in Greenville, S.C. and served in the U.S. Marine Corps, completing a tour of duty in Vietnam. The veteran was set to be buried with military honors on Nov. 9 at the at the Middle Tennessee Veteran’s Cemetery in Pegram when staff members at the Cheatham County Veterans Service Office learned he was an "unclaimed" veteran" “When we found out that he was considered an unclaimed veteran, which means he has no family, we wanted to make sure that he got claimed,” Bob Counter told The Tennessean. Counter, an Air Force veteran, initially posted about it on the Cheatham County Veterans Service official Facebook page. Hundreds came to pay their respects for Leo Stokley, 69, of Murfreesboro, Tenn.. Stokley was a Marine Corps veteran who died and had no family members to attend his funeral. (WTVF via NNS) "We are asking Team Cheatham, and especially our Veterans, to claim Mr. Stokley as a matter of respect for his military service," the post read. "No Veteran should have a funeral without someone holding his/her service in high regard. It's just not right or fitting." FMR. AMB. RYAN CROCKER: WE MUST KEEP OUR PROMISES TO THOSE WHO SERVE WITH US After the initial posting, his message was picked up by several other popular Facebook pages, and quickly went viral with thousands of shares by the time of the funeral on Friday. "It's very heartwarming to see this many veterans and friends of veterans that show up here on a cold, rainy day, a weekday, to send him off in style," Counter told WTVF. I'm proud for that. I'm proud for these guys that did that," said the Air Force veteran. Stokley was then laid to rest at the Middle Tennessee Veterans Cemetery in Nashville.

  9. Hunters take 99 elk in 2018 harvest by WJAC Web Contributors| Friday, November 16th 2018 Nearly 100 participants in Pennsylvania’s 2018 Elk Hunt took home a trophy, the Pennsylvania Game Commission said in a release Friday. (WJAC) AA    CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WJAC) — Nearly 100 participants in Pennsylvania’s 2018 Elk Hunt took home a trophy, the Pennsylvania Game Commission said in a release Friday. Ninety-nine elk were taken by 125 hunters during the regular one-week elk season that ended last Saturday. The Game Commission said the success rate was 96 percent, with 25 of the 26 tags filled by licensed bull hunters. Bulls are antlered elk. The 2018 hunt included some large elk, as the Game Commission estimated 13 bulls to weigh more than 700 pounds each. They said two bulls weighed more than 800 pounds each. The heaviest bull taken in this year’s hunt was estimated at 894 pounds, with a 7-by-8-point rack. It was taken in Gibson Township by Richard Reicherter I, from Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, according to the release. The Game Commision said an 806-pounder with a 10-by-7-point rack was taken in Goshen Township, by Mark Copp, of Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. Official measurements of bull racks taken in the hunt cannot be recorded until the antlers have air-dried for at least 60 days after the animal was harvested, according to the Game Commission. The release said there were also some large antlerless elk taken in the harvest. Eight of the 74 cows taken by hunters during the one-week season weighed over 500 pounds each. The release said 39 elk -- nine bulls and 30 cows -- were taken on Nov. 5, the opening day of elk season. “Overall, the 2018 elk season was fairly typical with a slightly lower success rate for antlerless elk hunters,” said Jeremy Banfield, Game Commission elk biologist. One difference from previous years was the distribution of elk harvests across all the hunt zones, Banfield said. “Normally we’d like at least a 50 percent success rate in each zone, where, this year, several zones had 100 percent success, while others reached only 20 to 40 percent success.” “Poor weather on Monday, Tuesday, and again on Friday might have contributed to the lower harvest, but most hunters recognize the rarity of having an elk tag and will hunt hard no matter the weather. Several hunters reported seeing elk while hunting and just not being able to connect with them.” Within 24 hours of harvest, successful hunters are required to bring their elk to a check station, where tissue samples are collected to test for chronic wasting disease, brucellosis, and tuberculosis. To date, none of these diseases have been detected in Pennsylvania elk, according to the Game Commission. The Game Commission said that, to participate in the elk hunt, hunters must submit an application. They are then selected through a random drawing and purchase a license. The drawing annually attracts more than 30,000 applicants. SEE PICTURE ; https://wjactv.com/news/local/hunters-take-99-elk-in-2018-harvest

  13. New laws in Pennsylvania: Pensions, gambling, domestic violence, DUI, human trafficking, animal abuse and more Updated: 4:26 PM EST Nov 16 New laws in Pennsylvania: Pensions, gambling, domestic violence, DUI, human trafficking HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pennsylvania state lawmakers wrapped up their session this week, closing the book on two years that produced nearly 250 new laws. Below are some of the 2017-18 session's legislative highlights: Follow this story to get instant e-mail alerts from WTAE on the latest developments and related topics. Advertisement PENSION REFORM Future hires in public schools and state government are getting reduced retirement benefits under a landmark pension overhaul law. The new plans start to take effect for those hired in 2019, including judges or lawmakers who start their service after that date. The changes will save billions over the coming decades for the underfunded programs. New hires will choose from among plans that include a 401(k)-style benefit. The traditional pension benefit is shrinking by more than one-third. The retirement age is rising from 65 to 67 and pension benefits are tied to five years of salary, instead of three years, to smooth out spikes driven by overtime or other salary changes that can inflate pension benefits. The legislation exempts law enforcement categories, or about a third of state workers, including state troopers, prison guards and game wardens. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE The state's first anti-violence legislation in more than a decade that deals directly with guns was enacted, requiring people convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence or subject to protective orders to give up their guns within 24 hours. Gun owners subject to protection from abuse orders can no longer give their weapons to family members or friends. Instead, they must be handed over to police, a gun dealer or lawyer. Another law will help guide judges setting bail for defendants charged with domestic abuse. CRIMINAL RECORDS SEALED Lower-level, nonviolent crimes in Pennsylvania will automatically be sealed from public review after 10 years under a new state law. The "clean slate" legislation also seals records of arrests that did not result in convictions. The convictions are not expunged, and records of them will still be available to police, courts and prosecutors. Access to all summary convictions that are 10 years old will be restricted, as long as the defendant has fulfilled court-ordered obligations. The state will no longer suspend drivers' licenses for those convicted of drug offenses unrelated to driving, and the use of DNA evidence for those already convicted is being expanded. Advertisement HAZING The death of a Penn State fraternity pledge inspired lawmakers and Gov. Tom Wolf to toughen criminal penalties for hazing and allow courts to confiscate fraternity houses where hazing has occurred. Schools must maintain anti-hazing policies and reporting hazing incidents. Hazing incidents that result in severe injury or death are now classified as felonies. A "safe harbor" provision lets people avoid prosecution if they seek help for victims of hazing incidents. HUMAN TRAFFICKING Child victims of human trafficking cannot be prosecuted for crimes they are compelled to commit under a new law that also requires police to contact the state Department of Human Services whenever they encounter a child who has been sexually exploited. The Department of Human Services also must establish ways to provide victims with homes, schooling, training and counseling. ORGAN DONATION A rewrite of the state's organ donation bill makes a number of changes aimed at improving survival rates for transplant patients. It allows people with powers of attorney to give permission for organs to be donated and creates a new procedure for determining the organ and tissue donation intentions of a dying person if their wishes aren't clear. Coroners who deny the donation of all of a person's organs must review the clinical findings of procedures performed at the hospital and provide a written statement explaining the reason for the denial. Advertisement DUI PENALTIES Repeat DUI offenders face tougher new penalties, including the state's first felony for driving under the influence, for those with a third conviction for driving with at least twice the legal limit of alcohol, or for all fourth-time offenders. The law also includes longer mandatory jail time for unintentionally causing the death of another person as a result of a repeat DUI violation. CASINO GAMBLING The state's gambling industry is expanding under a law that allows up to 10 new mini-casinos, sports betting, slot machine-style games at truck stops and online casino-style gambling. ANIMAL ABUSE Libre's Law, named for a dog who suffered severe abuse and became a symbol for the need for reform, increased penalties, putting abusers at risk of felony convictions and fines of at least $500. It imposes new guidelines for tethering dogs, requires owners to give them access to shade and water when outside and bars owners from keeping dogs outside for longer than half an hour in potentially dangerous weather conditions. Police were granted legal authority to force their way into vehicles to rescue dogs and cats they believe are in danger. The legislation generally immunizes police, humane officers and other emergency responders from being sued for removing the animals. They must first make a reasonable effort to find the owner and have to leave a note saying who they are, who they work for and how the owner can retrieve their pet. Advertisement ABORTION A proposal to prohibit abortions when the sole reason is that the fetus has or may have Down syndrome passed the state House, but was not acted on in the Senate. Wolf also vetoed a bill to limited abortions to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy and, according to opponents, outlawed the most common method of second-trimester abortion. Planned Parenthood said it would have been the country's most restrictive abortion law.
