    In the time leading up to his shootout with police, Adam Zaborowski lost his job, lost a custody battle for his child and was “just not handling the pandemic well,” his lawyer said Sunday. The 35-year-old Slatington man was charged Saturday with attempting to kill seven police officers near his home at 801 Main St. That shootout followed an incident Friday where Zaborowski allegedly shot at a clerk at Cigars International in Bethlehem Township. He allegedly refused to wear a face mask in the cigar store despite the threat of COVID-19. Defense attorney John Waldron said a conversation with Zaborowski’s...

    President Donald Trump trails Democrat Joe Biden in Pennsylvania 41% to 50%, according to a new poll. The poll by the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College also found that only 38% of respondents believe Trump is doing an excellent or good job — the same as in January. But the poll also found only 24% of Pennsylvania respondents believe the United States is “headed in the right direction,” down from 38% in January. “I’m not going to make an argument Trump can’t win, but he obviously has his work cut out for him,” F&M political scientist...

    HUMMELS WHARF – Authorities say the suspect of Friday’s deadly shooting at Buffalo Wild Wings stalked and was planning to kill a Trevorton woman who died from injuries that night. A Sunbury man has also been identified as the one who shot the suspect, putting him in serious condition.

The letter was found in Fernanders’ vehicle after a search warrant was executed. Included in Fernanders’ plotted killing was also an Amcrest GPS...

The Express poll had Trump on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where Trump outpolls Biden by 48 percent to 44...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. — Governor Tom Wolf said at a press conference Monday that mask wearing could continue until a COVID-19 vaccine is developed. “I’m sort of thinking this [mask wearing] is until we get a vaccine," said Gov. Wolf. "But I don’t have any real formal goal there." On July 1, Governor Tom Wolf announced an order, signed by Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine, requiring masks to be worn whenever anyone leaves home when social distancing is not possible. Studies have shown wearing a mask can help reduce the spread of the virus.

    A new order signed Wednesday by state Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine makes masks mandatory in Pennsylvania even when you’re outside in a public place. Gov. Tom Wolf said the mandate expands an order signed in April that requires the wearing of masks in businesses. The new order is effective immediately, Wolf said. Masks must be worn whenever anyone leaves home, according to the order, signed under Levine’s authority under the Disease Prevention and Control Act. “This mask-wearing order is essential to stopping the recent increase in covid-19 cases we have seen in Pennsylvania,” Wolf said.

    Eight people were shot across the city of Chester on Monday — a violent day recorded in a city that needs help. That troubling statistic was met with a major development in a tragic homicide. A month after they buried their 13-year-old son, the Davis family got news Tuesday from U.S. Marshals and police that four people are now held on first-degree murder in their son’s killing. Police have charged 23-year-old Tavon Starkey, 23-year-old Keyonte Watkins, 30-year-old Danielle Showell and 22-year-old Sulayman Womack with first-degree murder and related offenses. “It’s so bitter for me, man, not just because he’s my...

I’m prepared to sacrifice even more.

In fact, their deaths are presented by the PA as an “achievement.” Often, the parents of the dead children also present...

    Gov. Tom Wolf is the true coward (letter) 5 hrs ago As I sit here watching our governor react to some of Pennsylvania’s counties defying his order to stay closed, I can’t help but get angrier and angrier. He calls the elected officials from those counties cowards, but he himself is a shining example of cowardice. Let me give you some examples. While being asked about the rationale as to which counties should remain closed and which shouldn’t, he simply blames the virus rather than answering the question. Another question was asked about the waiver process and the reasons why...
