HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania appeals court is upholding the conviction of former attorney general Kathleen Kane for leaking secret grand jury information and lying about it.  Superior Court, on Friday, rejected arguments made by Kane, a Democrat sentenced in 2016 to 10 to 23 months but out on bail.  The court is turning down claims that all Montgomery County judges should have been prevented from handing her case, evidence against her was illegally obtained, she was the victim of selective and vindictive prosecution and jurors should have been given certain information about grand jury secrecy rules.


The judges are denying her argument she should have been able to use evidence concerning a pornographic email scandal or the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case.  Kane’s lawyer didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment.    The judges also denied her argument she should have been able to use evidence about a pornographic email scandal that involved the office she ran, or the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case that her former office prosecuted.


ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a pit bull has attacked and killed a 6-year-old boy in Pennsylvania.

The Blair County coroner says the child died of blunt-force trauma from the dog attack that occurred just before 6 p.m. Thursday in Lakemont.  Family friend Rick Vaughan, tells The Altoona Mirror the boy’s father heard the mother screaming and found the dog on top of the boy.


The father pulled the dog away, but the child succumbed to his injuries.  Authorities say the dog that killed the boy is now dead, but they haven’t disclosed further details about its death. The family also asked police to take a second dog from the home for an undisclosed reason.

The boy’s name has not been released.

NATICK, Mass. (AP) — The terrors of World War II impacted most of the world’s women, both on the home and battlefronts.  A new exhibition opening Friday at the International Museum of World War II in Natick, Massachusetts, highlights just that — the important and sometimes unconventional roles women took on during the war.  “It’s about the human story,” founder Kenneth Rendell explains. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase and honor women’s service to the war effort.”


“Women in WWII: On the Home Fronts and the Battlefronts” is composed of more than 100 artifacts from the U.S., Soviet Union, Germany, Japan, France and Great Britain.  For many women, wartime was about more than rationing food for their families.   In the Soviet Union, 400,000 women drafted as “Red Army girls” filled roles as doctors and even snipers. One photograph shows paranurses jumping out of a plane into a war zone, strapped with medical supplies to save wounded soldiers.  Not all women had such dramatic roles, but millions across the U.S. served as postal workers, trash collectors and manufacturers, roles previously held by men.


LONDON (AP) — Britain’s Kensington Palace has given details of the newly created Coat of Arms for the former Meghan Markle — an honor which is accorded by tradition to the nobility.  The Coat of Arms for the Duchess of Sussex, as she is now formally known, includes symbols that invoke the former actress’ background and look to her future.


It features a blue background that represents the Pacific Ocean and golden rays of sunshine reminiscent of California, her home state in America. The shield includes three quills, representing the power of words.  A collection of golden poppies, California’s state flower, sit on the grass beneath the shield together with wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace.  Officials said Meghan, who wed Prince Harry on May 19 in a spectacular ceremony at Windsor Castle, worked closely with the College of Arms in London to create the design.


TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A service dog waiting for a flight to Philadelphia with her owner gave birth at the Tampa airport as travelers gathered around and watched.  The Tampa Bay Times reports 2-year-old golden retriever Eleanor Rigby went into labor at Gate F-81 and birthed eight puppies — seven males and a female.


The new mom, owner Diane Van Atter and the puppies’ father, Golden Nugget, were waiting for a flight home Friday when the puppies started arriving one by one. Tampa Fire Rescue paramedics and a nurse assisted with the delivery.  Van Atter, the puppies and the parents missed the flight.  Van Atter’s stepmother, Karen James of Bradenton, said they planned to get some rest and figure out how to drive the new litter back to Philadelphia.
