    BRADDOCK, Pa —Two Braddock police officers were suspended Thursday night after getting into a fight inside the police station. Police said the part-time officers got into some sort of dispute that quickly turned physical, and one of them fired a Taser at the other. "They've both been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation at this point," said Braddock Mayor John Fetterman. He depicted it as an argument that started over something "stupid" and escalated. Both officers drove home at the end of the night. Neither one was injured, and the Taser hit was not exactly a direct impact, police...

    PITTSBURGH -- The mayor of Braddock, John Fetterman, is on a mission to end violence in his town. Fetterman has a unique way to remember every victim who’s died; the dates of their death are tattooed on his arms. “On my right arm is a much more somber set. It's the souls we've lost in our community since I've been mayor through violent means," explained Fetterman. “There are certainly saints and sinners on that list and we need to keep it as short as it already is," he said. Fetterman is from York, Pa., and has lived all over. But...

    When reflecting upon the momentous battles that shaped America as a country, most go no further back than the Revolutionary War. The French and Indian War, or what British and Canadians refer to as the Seven Years' War, is often relegated to a smaller place in U.S. history. But an upcoming four-part dramatic documentary, Episodes 1 and 3 of which were written, produced and directed by Arlington resident and filmmaker Eric Stange, intends to change perceptions of the 1754 to 1763 struggle. Titled "The War That Made America," the documentary premiering on PBS Jan. 18 and 25 explores how the...

    1. Russell Crowe Triumphs in "Cinderella Man" In "Cinderella Man" (opening Friday, June 3rd), Russell Crowe once again proves that old-fashioned masculinity does not have to be completely absent from the movies. Directed by Ron Howard, "Cinderella Man" tells the uplifting, real-life story of Jim Braddock, the Depression-era boxer who rose from poverty and the soup lines to become heavyweight champion of the world. The movie has excellent moral values, and Russell Crowe (Jim Braddock), Renee Zellweger (his wife Mae Braddock), and Paul Giamatti (his manager Joe Gould) all do a fine job portraying the 30s-era characters with conviction and...

    In the summer of 1755, soldiers faced heat, disease and enemies as they marched across a quarter of the American continent to do battle. That summer, some 2,400 French and Indian War troops under the command of British Gen. Edward Braddock walked from Virginia to stage what turned out to be a botched assault on the Point in Pittsburgh, the key to westward expansion and in the firm grip of the French and their Indian allies in the 1750s. "These were tough people," mused tourist Douglas Roach, as he rested on a bench next to Braddock's Grave along Route 40...
