    These gnome houses in hollowed out logs were one of the first along the east end of Fisherman's Trail in Little Buffalo State Park. Park management has evicted the gnomes. As Steve Hoke was leaving Little Buffalo State Park on Monday after removing 38 gnome homes, he met a man and his daughter. The 7-year-old girl had just finished her last chemo treatment. Her dad asked what she wanted to do – she said she wanted to see in person the gnome houses that she had seen on Facebook. Hoke was pulling a garden wagon full of the 38 gnome...

    The U.S. Federal Highway Administration is killing the current decade-long test of looking into replacing highway signs with a new “Clearview” font it designed and developed to be more legible because, twelve years later, it turns out the new font actually made sign legibility worse. Back in 2004, the Federal Highway Administration approved state use of a new font ironically called “Clearview” to be the new face of highway signs around the nation. At the time, testing had “proven” that the new font was more legible to drivers, specifically at night, than the old signs featuring the “Highway Gothic” typeface....

    The child's screams went on for a full 30 minutes from inside the Canton, Ohio, apartment before neighbors called 911 and police arrived on-scene late last week. They discovered that the distraught, 20-month-old boy wasn't simply left home alone. He was stuck in a toilet inside the empty apartment, WPXI in Pittsburgh is reporting. Eventually, police did catch up with the boy's parents. It turns out that the boy's mother, identified as 20-year-old Justice Chance, was shopping at Wal-Mart, according to the news account first reported by Fox 8 in Ohio.

After years of pleading from PC enthusiasts, Microsoft finally revealed an ultra-premium Surface laptop, dubbed Surface Book, at its hardware event on Tuesdaya portable PC designed to embrace Windows 10s most cutting-edge features, and one thats just oozing style. If the Surface Pro is a tablet that can replace your laptop, as Microsofts marketing crowed last year, does that make the Surface laptop a laptop that can replace your tablet that replaces your laptop? Not quite. Both aim for different targets. While the Surface tablets were initially introduced to highlight the sort of mobile...

    You'll have to excuse the people of West Pittston, Pa., for feeling dumped on and a little crappy right about now. This, because some town's folk awoke Monday to find toilet paper and plastic littering their yards in Luzerne County. Now, no less than the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating whether the debris came from a plane passing overhead. WNEP-TV reports that debris fell onto several properties, including that of Tori Viccica, whose freshly mulched yard was turned into a landfill by the trash and toilet paper.

    Gov. Tom Wolf is expected to call today for the Republican-controlled General Assembly to send him a budget that boosts state education funding and provides relief for school district property taxes while raising the rates of the sales and personal income taxes. His plan for doing so includes a proposal to raise the personal income tax rate in July 2015 from 3.07 percent to 3.7 percent, while increasing the eligibility for a poverty exemption, according to a briefing document prepared by the administration. He will propose increasing the state sales tax in July 2016 from 6 to 6.6 percent while...

    2/19 - The recent arctic blasts have caused the ice cover on the Great Lakes to increase rapidly. As of Tuesday, Feb. 17, the amount of ice on the Great Lakes is more than the same date last year. The total ice cover on the Great Lakes is now rated at 82.3 percent as of Tuesday. On the same date last year, the Great Lakes had 81.6 percent total ice cover. The Great Lakes ice cover has grown over 5 percent in the past 24 hours. That's about 4,750 square miles of ice overnight. At that pace of ice growth,...

    State Treasurer Rob McCord's unexpected announcement on Thursday of his resignation, effective Feb. 12, gave rise to speculation about what brought it about so suddenly. Then within hours after issuing a news release saying he was returning to the private sector after having achieved all of his goals as treasurer, three media outlets cited anonymous sources confirming that McCord is under federal investigation. Philadelphia TV station WPVI reported that McCord was being investigated for alleged theft of campaign and other funds. The Morning Call in Allentown subsequently confirmed that report and also reported that the probe has been going on...

    Gov. Tom Wolf stood with a small group of lawmakers Wednesday morning to rally new efforts behind bills that would extend basic anti-discrimination protections statewide on the basis of sexual orientation. For Pennsylvania, a state where in most municipalities a person can still be fired from his job or denied housing because of his or her sexual orientation, Wolf said the extended anti-discrimination bills fit the state's heritage perfectly. "Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn on the basis of tolerance. On the basis of religious freedom," Wolf noted. U.S. District Judge John Jones gave the LGBT movement a push with...

    The U.S. Department of Justice wants new authority to hack and search remote computers during investigations, saying the new rules are needed because of complex criminal schemes sometimes using millions of machines spread across the country. Digital rights groups say the request from the DOJ for authority to search computers outside the district where an investigation is based raises concerns about Internet security and Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures. By expanding federal law enforcements power to secretly exploit zero-day vulnerabilities in software and Internet platforms, the proposal threatens to weaken Internet security for all of us, Nathan...

    Great Lakes ice blocks flow of grain, iron 5/2 - The biggest ice cover on the Great Lakes in decades is backing up shipments of everything from Canadian grain to U.S. iron and steel in one of North America's most important economic regions.

    CAIRO (CNN) The Egyptian military opened fire on supporters of the deposed president, Mohamed Morsy, and the Muslim Brotherhood, early Monday, killing more than 30 people. The health ministry put the number of fatalities at 34, and said 200 others were wounded. CNN counted at least eight bullet-riddled bodies and up to 40 wounded at the chaotic emergency facility in the Egyptian capital, down the street from the site of the shooting. The upper bodies of the victims appeared to be peppered with shotgun pellets and bullet wounds. Doctors tended to the victims, performing surgeries in many cases before shipping...

    Dozens of birdwatchers who travelled to a Scottish island to see an extremely rare swift have been left distraught after it was killed by a wind turbine. Around 40 people were watching the White-throated Needletail, the world's fastest flying bird, on the Isles of Harris when the tragedy happened. Sightings of the bird have only been recorded eight times in the UK in nearly 170 years, most recently in 1991, prompting around 80 ornithologists to visit the island in the hope of catching a glimpse. David Campbell, from Surrey, told BBC Scotland the incident took place late on Wednesday afternoon....

    The Scottish Parliament is considering a controversial bill that would assign a social worker to every child born in the country in order to promote, support or safeguard the well-being of the child or young person. The Children and Young People Bill, though well-intentioned, has many critics who believe it infringes too much on the personal nature of child-rearing. According to the bill, every child would be assigned a named person other than the parents, but unlike in the case of naming a godparent, the parents do not have a choice of opting not to have one.

Warren and Yvonne Snow, of Kenai, had the closest guess of when the ice would go out on the Tanana River in Nenana, which happened at 3:41 p.m. Monday. The game officially uses standard time, not daylight time, so the winning time is listed as 2:41 p.m. Monday. No one guessed that exact time, but the Snows were only a minute off. Their guess of 2:40 p.m. will net them $318,500 before taxes as...

    Former FBI employee 'saw angels guarding Flight 93 site after deadly crash on 9/11' A former FBI employee sent to the Flight 93 crash site on September 11, 2001 has claimed she saw a legion of angels guarding the scene when she arrived. Lillie Leonardi has made the bizarre claims in a book written after she retired from the FBI due to post-traumatic stress disorder which began after the terror attacks.
