  2. Preliminary hearing reveals new details on Stoltzfoos case, authorities still seeking tips by CBS 21 News Friday, August 7th 2020 AA <p>Justo Smoker, 34 (suspect) | Linda Stolzfoos. 18 (missing){/p} LANCASTER COUNTY — The Lancaster County District Attorney's Office says that new information about the disappearance of 18-year-old Linda Stoltzfoos was revealed at a preliminary hearing this week. The hearing was held on Aug. 5 for 34-year-old Justo Smoker, who is charged with kidnapping Stoltzfoos, an Amish woman, on June 21 as she was walking home from church. PREVIOUS STORY: Justo Smoker ordered to stand trial in kidnapping of Linda Stoltzfoos According to preliminary hearing testimony from East Lampeter Township police and Pennsylvania State Police: Linda “was content with her Amish lifestyle." Nobody authorities spoke with reported she was "unhappy in any capacity.” She was “timid in groups” and in public. She never had any boyfriends or non-Amish friends. Police searched Linda’s bedroom and found: her money was still there, along with her travel bag and all other belongings. The only things missing were her church clothes. Police checked for activity on Linda’ bank accounts as recently as Aug. 5 – there has been none. Witnesses saw an Amish female in a red car on the afternoon Linda disappeared. That was ‘extremely noteworthy’ because Amish females typically would not be alone in a vehicle wearing a head covering. One witness said, “she looked at me with pleading eyes.” - As for the red car, Justo Smoker was seen cleaning it a few hours after Linda was abducted. Smoker also sent a Facebook message stating he was cleaning his car. Smoker told police no one else drove his car around the time of the abduction, and that he was not in that area on June 21 – he hedged when police showed him surveillance images. On June 23, a witness saw Smoker’s car parked near a wooded area where police later found Linda’s stockings and bra buried. A plastic zip tie also was found in that area. The witness photographed the car - it matched Smoker's registration. Police continue to ask the public for information, which can be provided through CrimeWatch, or by calling police at 717-291-4676 or 717-299-7650. https://wjactv.com/news/local/preliminary-hearing-reveals-new-details-on-stoltzfoos-case-authorities-still-seeking-tips

  8. NEW YORK Published 10 hours ago Guacamole-maker mishap in NY state kills former mayor, injures 2 others: report Joseph Kapp was the mayor of the city of Rensselaer in the 1990s. By Brie Stimson | Fox News Fox News Flash top headlines for August 6 Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com. A 67-year-old former mayor in New York state was killed and two other people were hurt Wednesday morning when a food processor being tested for guacamole production exploded, according to a report Joseph Kapp, who served as mayor of Rensselaer in the 1990s and was currently vice chairman of the Board of Trustees at Hudson Valley Community College in nearby Troy, succumbed to his injuries after he and the other victims were taken to a hospital after the incident in Schenectady, N.Y., the Albany Times-Union reported. All three had been hurt by a “high-pressure vessel,” Schenectady Fire Department Assistant Chief Don Mareno told the newspaper. Mareno said the other two victims had less serious injuries. The device was being tested at the headquarters of Innovative Test Solutions, an engineering and test laboratory, the report said. “It is with deep sadness that we must share that our great friend and colleague, Joe Kapp, passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 5,” college President Roger Ramsammy said in a statement. “We share our deepest sympathies with Joe’s wife, Jolanta, and the entire Kapp family.” "As a trustee of Hudson Valley Community College, he helped guide the college as it grew into one of the top two year colleges in the country, making a difference in the lives of many graduates and students," he added. "Joe Kapp leaves behind a legacy of service and accomplishment that greatly benefited Rensselaer County and the Capital Region," County Executive Steve McLaughlin said in a statement, according to the Times-Union. He said Kapp "undertook important projects to revitalize the city" as mayor of Rensselaer. Innovative Test Solutions’ CEO and vice president, Scott Briody, said Kapp was a client of the company but declined to comment further. No more details about the accident were immediately available. https://www.foxnews.com/us/guacamole-maker-mishap-in-ny-state-kills-former-mayor-injures-2-others-report
  9. Licensed Guides at Gettysburg raise alarm of "major threat" to Civil War monuments by CBS 21 News Thursday, August 6th 2020 AA gettysburg visitors center.jpg GETTYSBURG, Pa. — The Licensed Battlefield Guides at Gettysburg are raising the alarm over a recent vote in the U.S. House of Representatives that would remove Civil War monuments from federal parks nationwide. The decision by the U.S. House would have all Confederate monuments, statues and "commemorative placards" removed from Gettysburg National Military Park. “We urge the U.S. Senate to strip out this provision that would destroy the unequaled collection of monuments, Union and Confederate, that set Gettysburg apart as a great battlefield park and a top visitor destination,” said Les Fowler, president of the Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides. According to Fowler, the legislation in question, HR-7608, would direct the National Park Service to remove all Confederate monuments, memorials, placards and statues at Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Antietam, Chickamauga, Manassas, Petersburg, Fredericksburg and 18 other battlefields and historic sites within six months. Fowler says that these Civil War battlefields and their monuments and interpretive plaques have been preserved to help Americans and foreign guests visualize and understand the terrible ordeal that forged this nation. The monuments at Gettysburg from both sides allow us to interpret this national struggle for freedom as it continues today. “The monuments representing all of the soldiers who fought here are a critical component of interpreting these sacred grounds,” Fowler said. Veteran battlefield guide Deb Novotny said, “The monuments serve as tools for us to tell the story not only of this battle but of the struggle of our nation to heal itself after the war.” The provision to remove Confederate monuments and markers was buried deep within a 727-page bill that also funds the State department, Agriculture department and the EPA. Despite the House’s action, there is still an opportunity to save the important story told at these Civil War parks by urging the Senate to remove this provision from the final funding legislation. “We will do what we can to convince all members of Congress to address and to oppose this removal provision. We encourage all advocates for Gettysburg to join our effort and reach out to their representatives,” Fowler said. https://wjactv.com/news/local/licensed-guides-at-gettysburg-raise-alarm-of-major-threat-to-civil-war-monuments
  10. Texas Tech women's coach Marlene Stollings fired one day after report of abuse by Associated Press Friday, August 7th 2020 AA FILE - In this Jan. 25, 2020, file photo, Texas Tech head coach Marlene Stollings reacts to a play in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Baylor in Waco Texas. (AP Photo/Rod Aydelotte, File) LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech fired women's basketball coach Marlene Stollings on Thursday, a day after a scathing newspaper report alleging a culture of abuse in her program. Athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced the firing in a one-sentence statement while adding that he planned to address the decision Friday. Players made claims of abuse over the past two years in season-ending exit interviews that were obtained through an open records request by The Intercollegiate, an investigative media outlet for college sports. The details were published by US Today. Players dreaded a heart monitoring system they said was misused in punitive ways, had to endure demeaning and threatening comments and were subject to sexually suggestive behavior from a strength coach who has since resigned, according to the report. Players said the coaching staff demanded that they maintain a heart rate of at least 90% of capacity during games and that they faced loss of playing time or more conditioning work if they didn't. A pediatric sports medicine director said maintaining a heart rate that high would be "very difficult" to do. Over two years, 12 of 21 players left the program, including seven recruited under Stollings, according to the report. She defending her program in a statement to the newspaper. Hocutt initially defended the coach as well, saying he was confident steps were being taken to improve communication in the program following a review of the program by a four-person committee. After the report was published, Hocutt said he spent more than an hour meeting with players and more than two hours in talks with players and coaches and that those discussions would continue Thursday. The firing was announced late Thursday. The pandemic-shortened season that ended in March was Stollings' second at Texas Tech. She had previously turned around the programs at Minnesota and VCU and has done the same with the Red Raiders, a once-proud program that has fallen on hard times. Texas Tech finished 18-11 in Stollings' second season after going 7-23 the year before she arrived. Emma Merriweather, a center who transferred to Kansas, said she was mocked about her weight in front of men's basketball players and admonished over showing signs of depression. She was later diagnosed with depression. Brazilian center Marcella LaMark said she was called "dangerous" by Stollings because the coach said her fitness lagged so far behind her teammates. LaMark transferred to Pittsburgh. Several players said coaches and staff berated post players with remarks such as "fat pig" and "grossly out of shape" and "gross disproportional." Strength coach Ralph Petrella sometimes threatened players with violence and made sexually suggestive remarks, players said. One player accused him of reaching under her sports bra and spandex shorts as part of a technique to recover from physical exertion. Petrella, who denied the allegations through his attorney, resigned about the same time the player reported the incident to a Title IX administrator. https://wjactv.com/news/nation-world/texas-tech-womens-coach-fired-one-day-after-report-of-abuse

Hook pleaded guilty to the above charge on Wednesday, July 1. As a result of the plea agreement, the following charges were dismissed: – Corruption Of Minors – Defendant Age 18 or Above, Felony 3 – Corruption of Minors, Misdemeanor 1 (two counts) During the sentencing hearing, the juvenile victim’s mother addressed the court, giving an emotional victim impact statement about the “everlasting scar” that the victim is dealing with due to the assault. “Jacob Hook stole her innocence and her trust,” she stated, noting the victim now suffers from anxiety and depression, and has “emotional scars she will struggle with for the rest of her life.” The victim’s mother also issued an impassioned plea for the judge to consider lifetime sex offender registration for Hook “to protect other young girls.” “He is beyond terrible for his actions,” she said. “Please hold him to the highest level of accountability.” Judge Seidle-Patton did not mention registration in her sentencing but did note that despite his counsel’s request for house arrest rather than incarceration, she strongly felt incarceration was necessary due to the seriousness of the crime. “This is going to impact her (the victim) for the rest of her life,” Seidle-Patton said. “You had a responsibility as an adult, and that is something I can’t get past.” Hook was also ordered to undergo sex offender counseling, to perform 50 hours of community service, and to have no further contact with the victims in the case. Details of the case: According to a criminal complaint, it was reported that a 21-year-old male, later identified as Jacob Tyler Hook, had sexual intercourse with a known 13-year-old female (victim one) at a residence in Leeper, Farmington Township, Clarion County. It was also reported that he furnished alcohol and a THC vape pen to victim one and another 13-year-old female (victim two). According to the complaint, during a police interview, Hook stated that a 17-year-old male asked him to take him to his girlfriend’s residence in Leeper, and they went up to the residence “after dark.” He reported that when he met the girls, they talked for a while, and both girls told him they were 13 years old. He also allegedly admitted that both girls consumed alcohol that he brought to the residence. Hook went on to report that he and the 17-year-old male went back again the next night, and the girls again consumed alcohol that he brought. He explained that he and the girls were intoxicated, the complaint notes. According to the complaint, Hook reportedly admitted that he had sexual intercourse with one of the girls.

Home | Health News Tags: Coronavirus | Health Topics | hand | sanitizer | poisoning | alcohol | kids Hand Sanitizer Poisoning Calls Jump 70 Percent (Dreamstime) By Lynn Allison | Tuesday, 04 August 2020 04:14 PM New data from the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) reveals the number of calls concerning hand sanitizer products increased by an incredible 70% between Jan. 1 and Aug. 2 of this year. Sadly, more than 12,000 of the new cases involved children age 5 or younger. While no deaths were reported in the AAPCC data, according to Newsweek, 8 people have died in the U.S. after consuming hand sanitizers contaminated with methanol. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, methanol, also known as wood alcohol, can be toxic if ingested or absorbed through the skin. The Food and Drug Administration has compiled an updated list of recalls for the potentially toxic hand sanitizers. According to Fast Company, AAPCC said that improper use of disinfectants and bleach also spiked a rise in calls to their centers. Their data system shows a 58% rise during this time period for calls involving disinfectants and a 38% rise for inquiries regarding bleach products. Here again, calls involving children were higher than those involving adults aged 40-59 years of age. Chlorine bleach is a powerful cleaner that is very effective in killing germs like viruses, bacteria, and fungi. But it is also one of the most toxic chemicals found in homes. When you use bleach to clean surfaces, it leaves a residue that travels into your home's air that you breathe, affecting your lungs and is also absorbed through your skin, says Ellen Kamhi, PhD, author of The Natural Medicine Chest. "Chlorine is extremely dangerous and was used during World War I as a choking agent," she told Newsmax. The active ingredient in bleach, sodium hypochlorite, is incredible corrosive and capable of causing irritation, pain, and blistering if it comes into contact with your skin. It is also potentially dangerous when inhaled. The Environmental Working Group has published a list of safe and effective cleaners to fight the coronavirus. The AAPCC recommends people read labels carefully before using any of these products and store them high and out of children's reach. https://www.newsmax.com/Health/health-news/hand-sanitizer-poisoning-alcohol/2020/08/04/id/980528/?gdpr_consent=&gdpr=false
  23. Conway Facing Drug, Child Endangerment Charges by Jessica Shirey Thursday, August 6, 2020 in Crime, Local News, Top Stories 0 Share on FacebookShon Twitter CLEARFIELD – A wanted Osceola Mills man is facing charges for allegedly being in possession of drugs and leaving his four-month-old baby in his vehicle to flee from state police on foot. Chase C. Conway, 30, is charged by Trooper Jonathan Uren of the Clearfield-based state police with felony manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, endangering the welfare of children and flight to avoid apprehension. He’s also charged with one count each of misdemeanor use/possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest, plus five summaries. Conway is incarcerated at Clearfield County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bail, and scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing Aug. 12 during centralized court. According to the affidavit of probable cause, at approximately 4:14 p.m. July 10, Uren was on routine patrol in the area of Walton and West Maple streets in Chester Hill Borough. While traveling north on Walton Street, he observed a red sedan traveling south with an expired inspection sticker. The trooper turned around and activated his emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop. The driver, however, made a right onto West Maple Street and went into the Dollar General parking lot without signaling. He reportedly continued traveling through the lot until stopping his vehicle and fleeing on foot. As the driver exited his vehicle, Uren positively identified the male as Conway. Unable to locate him, the trooper went back to the suspect’s vehicle where customers had found a four-month-old baby in the rear behind the passenger’s seat. Uren said the baby was crying and he looked for something soothing inside the vehicle. Behind the driver’s seat, he found a box containing a large amount of suspected methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl and three glass smoking pipes. Upon further investigation, Uren found that Conway had outstanding warrants and a suspended license. https://gantdaily.com/2020/08/06/conway-facing-drug-child-endangerment-charges/
