  1. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene submits bill to award Kyle Rittenhouse’s highest congressional honor U.S 24/11/2021 Updated: 4 days ago ByNation World News Desk WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green of Georgia has introduced legislation to award the Congressional Gold Medal – the legislature’s highest honor – to Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager who was found not guilty last week of murder and other charges related to killing two men during a protest against police violence last year. Green introduced the Rittenhouse Prize Bill on Tuesday. Although the full text of the bill was not immediately available, the executive summary says the measure will “award the Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle Rittenhouse, who defended the Kenosha, Wisconsin community during the Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot.” Green’s efforts are unlikely to succeed. A bill requesting the Congressional gold medal must be supported by two-thirds of the House and Senate, now controlled by Democrats, before it is considered by the House Financial Services Committee and the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. … Once passed by Congress, the measure must be sanctioned by the President. While Congressional Democrats and President Joe Biden said they respected the jury’s decision in the Rittenhouse case, they largely condemned his actions in Kenosha. Rittenhouse, now 18, was found not guilty of murder, attempted murder and other murder charges in August 2020. During his trial, the teen revealed that he was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber and wounded Gyge Grosskreutz, now 27, during the Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse traveled to Kenosha from his home in Antioch, Illinois, to join armed civilians who took to the city’s streets amid riots sparked by police firing at Jacob Blake, a black man wanted on suspicion of sexual assault. Blake survived but remained partially paralyzed. Rittenhouse’s acquittal was celebrated by many Republicans in Congress, who, upon hearing the news, rushed to Twitter to congratulate him and describe his actions as defending Second Amendment rights. Several members of the House of Representatives, including representatives from Madison Cowthorne, North Carolina, and Matt Goetz, Florida, said they would hire Rittenhouse as an intern in their Congressional offices. Greene was among those who reached out to Rittenhouse after his acquittal, tweeting that the teenager was “one of [the] good ones.” When asked about Green’s bill, Joel Valdez, spokesman for Gaetz, said Wednesday: “We are concerned that awarding Kyle the Congressional Gold Medal will give him great support during his internship in our office.” The bill, which has no co-sponsors yet, has been submitted to the House of Representatives financial services committees and administration. The Senate website states that “after the American Revolution, Congress commissioned gold medals as the highest expression of national appreciation for the outstanding achievements and contributions of individuals or organizations.” According to a Congressional Research Service report, the previous recipients were an eclectic group including Sir Winston Churchill, Bob Hope, George Washington, Robert Frost, Joe Louis, the Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King Jr., and Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Notably, Greene was one of 21 House Republicans who voted against awarding the US Capitol Police Congressional Gold Medal and Washington, D.C., police officers who defended the Capitol during the January 6 Trump crowd attack. Greene told news organizations that she voted against the honors because she didn’t believe the law behind them should call the January 6 riot a “rebellion.” She also said she was having problems with how the Capitol bill is described as “the temple of our American democracy.” Green’s spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the Georgia lawmaker’s efforts to respect Rittenhouse. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn, who was among those honored to defend the Capitol on Jan.6 on Wednesday, said on Twitter that it is “discouraging” that some glorify Rittenhouse as a hero, while “brave men and women who fought and defended Capitol 1/6, we must continue to fight only for the TRUTH to be told about that day. ” “Since my testimony, I have been called by every name in the book. Political pawn, traitor, fake cop, badge shame, Pelosi’s puppet, ” Dunn tweeted. “[It’s] it’s sad to see some of the same people say these things, praise Rittenhouse or just remain silent. “ Rittenhouse met with former President Donald Trump on Tuesday at his home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. Green shared a photo of Rittenhouse with Trump on Wednesday, saying they are two men she admires. “Kyle thanks Pre Trump for the two most important things the left is trying to destroy,” Green wrote. “We must always abide by our Constitution, protect our 2A and stop our enemies who hate them.” Green’s account had to go through the financial services and administration committees. Representatives from two senior Republicans on these committees, Representatives Patrick McHenry, RN.C., and Rodney Davis, R-Ill, respectively, did not respond to requests for comment on the bill.

  3. UGI Urges Vigilance for Signs of Carbon Monoxide as Temperatures Cool by Gant Team Sunday, November 28, 2021 in Local News 0 0 Share on FacebookShare on Twitter UGI has responded to multiple reports of carbon monoxide (CO) incidents recently as temperatures cool across Pennsylvania and residents turn up thermostats and close in their homes. UGI urges customers to take several simple steps to ensure proper operation of natural gas heating equipment and appliances to prevent a build-up of CO inside homes and work spaces. CO poisoning is serious and can be fatal. Individuals who think they might be experiencing symptoms of CO poisoning should immediately seek fresh air and prompt medical attention. CO can be caused by malfunctioning heating systems or appliances as well as damaged or blocked vents and chimneys. CO is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas that is a by-product of the incomplete combustion of fuels such as wood, charcoal, gasoline, kerosene, oil, natural gas, and propane. Symptoms of CO poisoning include flu-like symptoms such as headache, nausea, and dizziness, as well as fatigue and shortness of breath. Signs there may be a build-up of CO in your home include: Significant condensation on walls and windows; House pets becoming sluggish; Residents in the home suffering flu-like symptoms or feeling unusually tired; Chronic odors from a malfunctioning appliance. While CO is odorless, the malfunctioning appliance can emit a sooty or smoky smell. Residents can take a number of steps to help ensure their safety, including the following: Make sure working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are appropriately located within living spaces and the batteries powering them are fresh. CO detectors/alarms should be located on each floor of a home, including one in each bedroom or sleeping area. Note that CO detectors have a limited operating life. Check the manufacturer’s instructions for related information and replacement considerations. If your heating system has not been serviced recently, have a qualified professional check your furnace, water heater, and other internal combustion appliances. An annual check and service of your heating system and appliances will help ensure the safe operation of your equipment. Check the connections to your chimney or flue for damage or corrosion. In addition, check for black stains visible on the outside of your chimney or flue. These stains can indicate a blockage. A damaged or blocked chimney could allow exhaust gas, including CO, to enter your home or workplace. Contact a heating professional to have your chimney and flue checked. Check that both internal and external combustion air vents are unobstructed. External vents can become blocked by leaves and other debris. Change or clean furnace filters regularly. Clogged filters can reduce the efficiency of your heating equipment and impede normal operations. Make sure the filter you use is the proper size and shape for your system. If the heating equipment in your home or business is not working because of an electric power outage, never use an open oven or grill inside your home to provide heat. Use caution when using unvented space heaters, which can be a source of CO. Always follow manufacturer’s directions regarding the use of these heaters. Unvented heaters are designed for supplemental use only. Be sure to provide adequate ventilation in areas where a space heater is used. Do not use unvented heaters in bedrooms, bathrooms, or confined spaces.

  9. DuBois City to Fine Owners of Abandoned, Blighted Properties by Steven McDole Friday, November 26, 2021 in Local News 0 0 Share on FacebookShare on Twitter DUBOIS – Owners of abandoned and or blighted properties in DuBois City will now be subject to fines, if property improvements aren’t made. On Monday night, council reported fines will be instituted, beginning one year after the property is deemed abandoned and or blighted by Code Enforcement Officer Zac Lawhead. Fines will increase over time, if there’s no evidence of improvements being made by the property owner. Fines will be instituted as follows: Less than 1 year: $0 fee 1 to 2 years: $500/year 2-3 years: $1,000/year 3-5 years: $2,000/year 5-10 years: $3,500/year 10-20 years: $5,000/year 20-plus years: The amount increases $500/year. DuBois City Redevelopment Authority Director Joe Mitchell announced the authority has projects in the works, as well. He said the city is attempting to acquire a few properties that aren’t in great shape, including the former funeral home and Tommy D buildings. According to Mitchell, this may also include the former cosmetology school that the city has been trying to purchase since December of 2019. Once purchased, he said these properties can be sold directly to the public through a more-streamlined process. “I think this is a very important step for the city,” said Solicitor Toni Cherry. This, she said, also allows the city to ensure properties meet code requirements whether work is performed by the city itself or by simply setting work requirements for the new property owner.
  10. Stray bullet kills Pennsylvania man at Thanksgiving dinner REGIONAL NEWS by: The Associated Press Posted: Nov 26, 2021 / 05:05 PM EST / Updated: Nov 26, 2021 / 05:18 PM EST SUBSCRIBE NOW Breaking News NORRISTOWN, Pennsylvania (AP) — A man eating Thanksgiving dinner inside a home in the Philadelphia suburbs was killed by a stray bullet that pierced a window, authorities said. The victim, Edilberto Miguel Palaez Moctezuma, 25, was shot in the torso just before 9:30 p.m., Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said in a press release issued Friday. He was flown to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. No one in the home was involved in the argument outside that apparently sparked the shooting, prosecutors said. The suspected gunman remains at large. 10-year-old Pennsylvania boy killed in target shooting incident Suspect Kevon Clarke, 19, of Norristown, fired several shots in the area during a dispute with relatives over liquor that had gone missing from a gathering earlier in the day, officials said. He is named in a warrant charging him with first-degree murder, reckless endangerment and weapons offenses. Steele described the victim as “an innocent man who wasn’t safe even in the confines of his own home.” “Mr. Palaez Moctezuma was murdered while eating Thanksgiving dinner inside his home, and to be clear, he and his family were not involved in the dispute,” he said in the release. Police said that surveillance videos and an analysis of the bullet hole helped them determine that the bullet had came from Clarke’s location. They also hope to speak with two other men seen running from the scene. A phone number for Clarke could not be found on Friday.
