  2. At least 10 dead, 3 hurt in Buffalo supermarket shooting; Gov. Kathy Hochul blames 'white supremacist' Christal HayesKevin JohnsonClaire Thornton USA TODAY 13 people were shot, 10 fatally, Saturday afternoon at a Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo, New York. The suspected shooter, identified as Payton Gendron of Conklin, New York, was arraigned on first-degree murder charges. Law enforcement officials have called the shooting a "racially motivated hate crime." A teenage gunman wearing tactical gear opened fire in a busy supermarket in a predominantly Black neighborhood in Buffalo on Saturday, killing 10 people and injuring three others in the country's latest high-profile crime apparently motivated by hate, authorities say. Officials said the suspected gunman, a white 18-year-old man, traveled several hours across New York to carry out the attack, which he livestreamed on social media. Eleven of the 13 people who were shot were Black, Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said at a news conference. Gov. Kathy Hochul called the gunman a "white supremacist" who terrorized New York's second-largest city in a "cold-hearted," "military-style execution" as people were buying groceries. "It strikes us in our very hearts to know that there's such evil that lurks out there," she said. "This individual – this white supremacist – who just perpetrated a hate crime on an innocent community, will spend the rest of his days behind bars. And heaven help him in the next world The suspect carried an assault weapon inscribed with a racial epithet, said Rep. Brian Higgins, citing briefings with law enforcement officials. “I was on site for the last three hours, and I listened carefully to what the FBI, police, the district attorney and the U.S. attorney had to say,” Higgins said. “There is no doubt this was a racially motivated attack.” The suspect, identified as Payton Gendron of Conklin, a New York community about 200 miles southeast of Buffalo, was taken into custody after the attack. He was arraigned on first-degree murder charges and appeared in court Saturday evening wearing a bandage over his shoulder. John Flynn, Erie County's district attorney, said along with the murder charge, his office and federal authorities were pursuing others, from terrorism to hate crimes. The supermarket is about three miles north of downtown Buffalo. The surrounding area is primarily residential and is surrounded by homes, along with a Family Dollar store, barber shops, a laundromat and fire station. Authorities said evidence showed the suspect showed racial animosity but declined to Gramaglia said the gunman was wearing tactical gear and was armed with an assault-styled rifle. He parked outside the Tops Friendly Market around 2:30 p.m. and opened fire in the parking lot, killing three people and injuring a fourth. He then went inside and continued his rampage, Gramaglia said. A retired Buffalo police officer, who was working as a security guard at the store, confronted the gunman and shot him. Authorities said the gunman was hit, but his tactical gear prevented injury. The gunman returned fire, killing the guard. 'SOLIDARITY IS THE ANSWER':Amid a rise in hate crimes, Black and Asian Americans are standing The gunman made his way through the store, firing at others before he was met by law enforcement near the lobby. Authorities said the gunman had his weapon pointed at his head and authorities were able to negotiate his surrender. “This is the worst nightmare that any community can face, and we are hurting and we are seething right now,” Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said at a news conference. “The depth of pain that families are feeling and that all of us are feeling right now cannot even be explained.” The Buffalo attack and the quick determination that the assault was racially motivated drew early parallels to the 2019 attack in El Paso, Texas where a gun man confessed to traveling hundreds of miles to target Hispanics at a local Walmart. The Texas attack left 23 dead. In the Buffalo case, a law enforcement official said, investigators are examining writings allegedly linked to the shooter indicating that the assault was motivated by hate. “We are investigating this incident as both a hate crime and a case of racially motivated violent extremism,” said Stephen Belongia, special agent of charge of the FBI's Buffalo field office. In the past year, FBI Director Christopher Wray has repeatedly warned of the threat posed by racially motivated violent extremists, telling Congress that such cases represent the "biggest chunk" of the bureau's domestic terrorism investigations. The same group, Wray told a Senate committee last year, were responsible for the most lethal attacks in the past decade. Authorities say the gunman livestreamed the attack to social media. The footage shows the gunman, dressed in military gear, pulling up to the front of the store with a rifle on the front seat and then pointing the rifle at people in the parking lot as he exited the vehicle and opening fire, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press. It also shows the suspect walking into the supermarket and shooting several other victims, the official said. "This was pure evil," Erie County Sheriff John Garcia said. "It was a straight-up racially motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community." Higgins acknowledged that authorities were reviewing the contents of a graphic manifesto in which the attacker referenced other racially motivated attackers, including Dylann Roof, an avowed white supremacist, who in 2015 killed nine people at a Black church in Charleston, South Carolina. “This is what all the anecdotal evidence adds up to,” Higgins said. Braedyn Kephart and Shane Hill, both 20, said they'd just pulled into the parking lot of the store when they saw the alleged gunman leaving and being taken in “He was standing there with the gun to his chin. We were like what the heck is going on? Why does this kid have a gun to his face?" Kephart said. He dropped to his knees. “He ripped off his helmet, dropped his gun, and was tackled by the police.” Hochul said the suspect acquired the rifle used in the attack legally but the weapon had been modified with illegal magazines. New York bars the sale of any magazine that has a capacity over 10 rounds. She said law enforcement was working to determine where the magazines were acquired but noted they could be purchased as close as Pennsylvania. She didn't elaborate on how many bullets the magazines could hold. President Joe Biden was briefed on the attack and was praying for those affected, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement. NAACP President Derrick Johnson called the shooting “absolutely devastating." “Our hearts are with the community and all who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy. Hate and racism have no place in America. We are shattered, extremely angered and praying for the victims’ families and loved ones," he added in a statement. The Rev. Al Sharpton issued a series of posts on Twitter, calling on the White House to convene a meeting with Black, Jewish and Asian “to underscore the Federal government (is) escalating its efforts against hate crimes.” He added “leaders of all these communities should stand together on this!” Hochul also expressed the need for changes, noting the gunman was active online and shared both his racist views and a livestream of his rampage. "There's a feeding frenzy on social media platforms where hate festers more hate. That has to stop," she said. These outlets must be more vigilant in monitoring social media content."

  3. Former Corsica Secretary Sentenced to Federal Prison for Embezzling Over $300k from Borough May 12, 2022 9:45 am· Author: exploreJefferson PITTSBURGH Pa. – A Corsica woman has been sentenced in federal court in Pittsburgh to 21 months’ imprisonment and three years’ supervised release on her conviction of wire fraud, United States Attorney Cindy K. Chung announced today. (PHOTO: Joseph F. Weis Jr. Federal Courthouse, in Pittsburgh. AP Photo/Keith Srakocic. Senior United States District Judge Nora Berry Fischer imposed the sentence on Tammy Laird, 49, of Corsica, Pennsylvania. According to information presented to the court, from January 2009 through August 2017, while Laird was employed as the Secretary and Treasurer of Corsica Borough, she defrauded the borough of more than $300,000 by issuing checks from the borough’s bank accounts to her father, her husband, and herself, by extracting funds from the borough’s bank accounts to pay personal expenses and credit card bills, and by making personal purchases on the borough’s business account at Staples. To hide her activity, Laird supplied the Corsica Borough Council and state auditors with altered bank statements and other falsified financial documentation. In 2020, Laird entered a guilty plea to all 26 counts of wire fraud charged. Prior to imposing sentence, Judge Fischer stated that although Laird had demonstrated remorse and post-conviction rehabilitation efforts, she had perpetrated a multi-year fraud upon the borough, a small community with very limited operating funds, and as such, she deserved a sentence of imprisonment commensurate with the significant financial harm caused. Judge Fischer further ordered Laird to pay restitution to Corsica Borough in the amount of $265,200.79. Assistant United States Attorney Carolyn J. Bloch prosecuted this case on behalf of the government. United States Attorney Chung commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Laird.

  6. Police: Bellefonte woman bathed kids in alcohol, gave them meth by: Jared Weaver Posted: May 6, 2022 / 06:00 PM EDT Updated: May 6, 2022 / 06:00 PM EDT SHARE CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ)– A woman is behind bars after police said she bathed kids in alcohol and gave them meth to smoke. After an interview with one of the four children on April 18, Bellefonte police discovered that 33-year-old Tara Auman would put two of the kids in bleach and spray them with alcohol because “there were bugs coming out from him,” according to the criminal complaint. The child described the bathroom as smelling like a pool when the kids were getting bath. Police also learned during the interviews that Auman was also allegedly giving the children meth. The child told police Auman asked the kids if they wanted to try wax. She then reportedly handed the smoking pipe to one of the children and lit it. Police were given drawings of the pipes that the children saw Auman use. One even described the lighting as “heating sugar on the stove.” The kids would get dizzy and tired, one even said how it was addicting. Auman gave the children meth on more than one occasion, police noted. On March 30, police performed a traffic stop on Blanchard Street after doing surveillance on Auman’s vehicle, and she was arrested for driving under the influence after failing field sobriety tests and having her blood drawn. When police searched her vehicle and property, they found multiple pipes for smoking meth along with the drug. Auman faces charges of corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of children along with additional drug charges. Auman is currently confined in Centre County Prison with bail set at $5,000 and is awaiting a preliminary hearing set for May 11.
  7. Dutch Pantry Family Restaurant celebrates Dutch Pantry Family Restaurant celebrates 50 years of serving community By Brianne Fleming bfleming@thecourierexpress.com 16 hrs ago 1 of 2 Buy Now Dutch Pantry Family Restaurant owner Tom Larson is pictured with his daughter, Melanie Conklin, inside of the DuBois business that recently celebrated its 50-year anniversary. Brianne Fleming Buy Now Dutch Pantry Family Restaurant is located on Rich Highway in DuBois. Brianne Fleming DuBOIS — Dutch Pantry Family Restaurant in DuBois is looking back on 50 years of the community support, homemade comfort food and the family atmosphere it has become known for. The restaurant on Rich Highway celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021, said owner Tom Larson, who has worked for Dutch Pantry restaurants since 1981, beginning in high school when he started as a cook then eventually became a manager. Larson took over the DuBois location on Rich Highway in 1987. His daughter, Melani Conklin, who currently acts as the restaurant manager, has worked there on and off over the years, Larson Said. The original Dutch Pantry was opened by an Amish mother and son in 1947. Back in the day, all of the restaurants were built near gas stations. The DuBois location opened Aug. 31, 1971, he said. It was always important to him to keep the staples and traditions of Dutch Pantry the same, including treating people like family and serving homemade comfort food like meat and potatoes, ham steaks and liver and onions, he said. Some employees have been with the restaurant for several years, said Larson, and he recalls getting to watch them grow up. Now, he is even hiring some of the kids of parents who formerly worked for him. Larson never saw himself owning a restaurant, he said, but it has just always felt like home. “Dutch Pantry has always taken care of me,” said Larson. “So, when the opportunity came, I took it.” Although Dutch Pantry does attract travelers, as it is right off of Interstate 80, it’s the locals and regulars who have kept the restaurant alive over the years, Larson said. “Our regulars are wonderful people who you get to know,” he said, noting that some will even pitch in and help at times. Dutch Pantry staff also often know their regulars by name, and treat them accordingly, said Larson. “People really like when you remember their name, or what meal they order,” he said. Besides the smell of hot coffee and comfort food, Dutch Pantry is also full of memories, including the games of Scrabble and peg games on the tables and the memorabilia on the walls and shelves, such as collectable cans, old pictures, bottles and more. Customers will also bring in items for the restaurant to display, such as one of the very first Dutch Pantry ms ever printed on display in the front glass case. Recommended Vide DuBois Community Days DuBois Community Days, a two-day "celebration of the community" organized by the DuBois Volunteer Fire Department and centered in the DuBois Memorial Park, will return this year, June 11-12, after it was canceled in 2020 because of the coronavirus restrictions. Shown is Robert Wachob, co-chairman of the DuBois Community Days committee. 0 seconds of 32 secondsVolume 0% Part of the restaurant – Larson’s favorite part – is outdoorsy themed, with several wild game mounds like deer and turkey on the walls. The venues are also known for their gift shops, said Larson, featuring unique and country décor items, candles, locally-made soaps and homemade jellies and jams, among others. “The gift shops were just always a part of Dutch Pantry,” he said. Like others in the restaurant industry, the COVID-19 pandemic was a difficult time for Dutch Pantry as well, as they have also been struggling to find workers, Larson said. “I can’t ask for a better staff than I have – they always go above and beyond,” he said, noting that working with his daughter has been a blessing. The local support from DuBois and surrounding areas, pre- and post-COVID, is what kept Dutch Pantry open during this time, Larson added. Not much about Dutch Pantry has changed over the years, as part of its charm is its traditional and nostalgic family atmosphere. It still has the same open antique/rustic layout, old-fashioned circular counter and the red, white and blue exterior color scheme. The menu has developed and changed according to the industry and what customers want, said Larson. Dutch Pantry is also known for its Breakfast with Santa event, which has been held for 30-plus years every December. For its 40th anniversary, Dutch Pantry held a month-long celebration with specials and lower prices, said Larson. For the 50th, there were some giveaways and month-long games. Larson recalls how much the DuBois area itself has changed over the past few decades. But, one thing has remained the same –the generous local support from Dutch Pantry customers. “The community has always supported us,” he said. “We have formed a lot of friendships over the years.” Visit Dutch Pantry Family Restaurant – DuBois on Facebook.
