Pres. Trump to Return to PA: AP PA Headlines, Scores and Features

 

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has been given the same penalty at his resentencing as before: 30 to 60 years in prison.  Centre County Judge Maureen Skerda sentenced the 75-year-old Sandusky on Friday at the courthouse in Bellefonte.

 

Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse in 2012 and sentenced to 30 to 60 years.  An appeals court said laws mandating sentence minimums in place at the time of his October 2012 sentencing had since changed.  Sandusky again asserted his innocence Friday. He choked up twice in brief remarks to the judge and told his supporters he loves them.

 

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump will make his fourth visit to Pennsylvania this year, this time to Hershey as he makes his case in the presidential battleground state.  Trump’s campaign announced a rally on Dec. 10 at Hershey’s Giant Center.   Pennsylvania backed Trump in the 2016 election by about 44,000 votes, or less than 1 percentage point over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

 

That made Trump the first Republican presidential candidate to win the state since 1988.  Trump has previously traveled to Pennsylvania this year to stump for Valley congressman Fred Keller (R-12th, Kreamer, Pa.) in a special congressional election and to boost the natural gas industry in two separate Pittsburgh-area trips.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Standing ovations greeted five comedy greats at a ceremony honoring their achievements.  Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Carl Reiner, Carol Burnett and Lily Tomlin were saluted Thursday at a Paley Center for Media ceremony in Beverly Hills, California.  The 97-year-old Lear, who produced groundbreaking hits including “All in the Family,” said he believed that laughter adds “time to one’s life.”

 

Newhart, star of two hit sitcoms, was introduced by Conan O’Brien, who said Newhart made his stellar comedy look effortless.  Burnett recalled a network executive dismissing the idea that a woman could host a variety show. Her long-running “The Carol Burnett Show” earned armloads of Emmy Awards.  Carl Reiner was honored for his work including “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and Tomlin for shows including “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” and “Grace and Frankie.”

 

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A state lawmaker is taking exception to the macabre humor that Maine’s chief medical examiner used in an old job posting.  The 2017 posting for a deputy medical examiner touted Maine’s benefits like a “really short season for decomposing bodies” and the fact that others are “lost at sea.”

 

The Bangor Daily News reports that state Rep. Jeff Evangelos, of Friendship, complained about the job posting to Attorney General Aaron Frey. Evangelos said it was “beyond sick.”  Evangelos previously asked Frey’s office to look into the credibility of Dr. Mark Flomenbaum, the chief medical examiner. The attorney general’s office, which oversees office of chief medical examiner, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

 

PUTNAM VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) — Animal control officers in New York came to the aid of a deer that had a plastic Halloween bucket stuck to its snout.  TV station WABC reports that that the yearling deer was spotted in Putnam Valley northeast of New York City with its snout in a pumpkin-shaped bucket.

 

The state Department of Environmental Conservation and Putnam Valley Animal Control made the rescue on Wednesday. Authorities say the bucket was stuck to the deer’s snout for four days.  The community nicknamed the animal Little Pumpkin.
