The incident occurred in the early morning hours at a 66 Andrews Street in the City of Jamestown. An altercation between Scarpino and the victim led to Scarpino's beating of Mr. Boje, which in turn led to his death. Mr. Boje was pronounced dead at the scene.

In a news release, the District Attorney says he was pleased with the disposition as it provided closure to Mr. Boje's family, stating, "I have been in constant contact with Mr. Boje's family and they are pleased that we have been able to put this tragic event to rest with the plea."

The District Attorney added that this was a case of domestic violence that unfortunately led to a death, and should serve as a reminder to all those who suffer at the hands of another to get help. "There are …

Latest Court Ruling:
NY Can't Collect Taxes from Any Tribe

A federal judge in Albany is blocking the state from enforcing new cigarette tax regulations on any Indian tribes.

This afternoon, U.S. District Judge Lawrence Kahn ruled that the Department of Taxation and Finance cannot start collecting sales taxes on cigarettes sold by any Native American retailers until at least October 1.

On Thursday, Kahn granted the St. Regis Mohawk Indian Nation's request for a temporary restraining order. Like the Senecas and Cayugas, the Mohawks are asking for an injunction hearing, claiming that the taxes violate their tribal sovereignty.

Kahn has ordered the Mohawks' injunction hearings to start Thursday. The Senecas' and Cayugas' injunction hearings were held before U.S. District Judge Richard Arcara in Buffalo on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Kahn's ruling today supersedes a ruling from the New York State Court of Appeals saying the state can move ahead with enforcement of the tax.

'Anarchist!' to be staged at Pitt-Bradford

Image
A masterpiece of slapstick and protest set in a police headquarters where a man has fallen to his death will be performed Monday, Sept. 20, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

“¡Anarchist!” will be performed by the Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern of Durham N.C., at 7:30 p.m. in the Studio Theater in Blaisdell Hall. Admission is $6 for all adults and $2 for students. The production is part of the university’s Spectrum Series.

“¡Anarchist!” is an updated version of Dario Fo’s classic “Accidental Death of an Anarchist.” Questions are raised as to whether the anarchist jumped or was pushed. A chameleonic maniac turns the tables on a corrupt establishment in an effort to get to the bottom of it.

“Little Green Pig is the most consistently exciting and surprising theater company in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area,” said Dr. Kevin Ewert, associate professor of theater and director of the theater program at Pitt-Bradford. “‘¡Anarchist!’ played to sold-out houses and rave reviews…

Casey Applauds Passage of Small Biz Bill

WASHINGTON, DC— U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) today applauded Senate passage of legislation to provide tax cuts to small businesses and increase their access to capital. Senator Casey released the following statement:

“I have heard from small business owners all across Pennsylvania about their struggles in this economy to grow and to obtain capital. If businesses can’t grow, they can’t hire. The legislation the Senate passed today will give small businesses $12 billion in tax cuts, provide $30 billion to community banks to help provide access to capital for small businesses and increase SBA loan limits. This is needed help for communities in Pennsylvania and the economy.

“It is unfortunate that some people in Washington don’t share the same sense of urgency in delivering help to small businesses. This bill should have been passed months ago. It would not have passed at all if not for a couple of Republicans who put help for small business and workers ahead of partisan politics.”…

AG Warns About 'Modeling Job' Scams

HARRISBURG - Attorney General Tom Corbett today warned Pennsylvania consumers to watch carefully for scams when searching for jobs on the Internet, including questionable online ads for part-time "modeling jobs."

"Con artists are using online message forums, email ads or bogus websites to circulate job offers that require consumers to respond quickly for high-paying opportunities," Corbett said. "These crooks are hoping that the attraction of work as a model, along with a paid trip to New York or other exciting locations, will get consumers to respond quickly and send money before verifying that the offer is legitimate."

Corbett explained that the exact details of these job scams can change, but all share common themes:

Easy money" for a small amount of work.
The need to respond immediately.
Difficulty meeting prospective employers face-to-face.
Most importantly, at some point during these scams, victims will be asked to wire-transfer money to another per…

Court Rules Against Potter Co. Newspaper

Incident reports filed by Pennsylvania state troopers do not have to be released to the public, according to today’s ruling by the Commonwealth Court.

The 6-1 majority ruling said the forms are covered by an exception to the Right-to-Know Law that allows agencies to withhold criminal investigative records.

The case involves a February 2009 request by the Potter Leader-Enterprise for a complete incident report about a fight in Potter County. The court found that the incident report did not amount to a police blotter, which are public record, and therefore did not have to be released.

Judge Renee Cohn Jubelirer wrote, "The incident report is not a chronological listing of arrests. Rather, it is a description of an investigation by the PSP into a complaint of criminal activity."

Office of Open Records Director Terry Mutchler says she is reviewing the decision to decide whether to appeal.

Roswell Park Receives National Honor

BUFFALO, NY — Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) leadership received official word this morning that America’s first cancer center has earned Magnet Recognition for nursing excellence, a top national honor bestowed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

Approximately 6% of all hospitals in the United States earn Magnet designation. RPCI is the only hospital in Western New York — and the only freestanding cancer center in New York State — to earn this designation, according to a news release sent to WESB and The HERO.

The Magnet distinction recognizes quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice, providing the ultimate benchmark for consumers to measure the quality of care they can expect to receive. In Magnet hospitals, patient outcomes are better, and their length of stay is shorter.

“We’re ecstatic and honored to receive such a distinction,” says Maureen Kelly, RN, MS, Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing …

Hamot Receives Grant to Partner with
Coudersport, Kane, St. Marys Hospitals

Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper announced today that Hamot Medical Center has received a $99,000 federal grant to partner with three hospitals to provide rural patients greater access to the advanced medical care they need.

The Health and Human Services grant, which Hamot applied for with Charles Cole Memorial Hospital in Coudersport, Elk Regional Health Center in St. Marys, and Kane Community Hospital in Kane, will specifically help pay for a cache of equipment to be stored at each of the rural hospitals for use while transporting critically ill patients to Hamot.

The equipment includes a portable ventilator, a wireless device to monitor vital signs, and a state-of-the-art portable IV pump. Currently, transfer of critically ill patients to Hamot from the rural hospitals can be significantly delayed because of a lack of equipment and critical-care trained paramedics and nurses.

“The purchase of this equipment will help put an end to critically-ill patients having to wait for a hospital t…

Zippo 'Stars' in New Movie

Image
Zippo, is celebrating its starring role in Lionsgate’s newest thriller Buried by sponsoring the movie’s premiere and after-party in New York today.

Buried, which Lionsgate will release in select theaters on September 24 and wide on October 8, stars Ryan Reynolds as a truck driver and family man who wakes up six feet underground, buried alive inside a coffin with no idea of who put him there or why. Buried with only a cell phone and a Zippo lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited.

The lighter featured in the film is a stock windproof Zippo lighter with a Street Chrome finish. In commemoration of the film, Zippo recently produced several lighters with the Buried theme which are destined to be highly prized by collectors. The Buried-branded Zippo lighters will be distributed to attendees of the Buried premiere after-party.

Buried is a guaranteed to keep audiences at the edge of their s…

Remains Found in Barrel in Indiana County


Two weeks after human remains were found in a barrel in an Indiana County creek, police have identified a suspect in the homicide.

32-year-old Jon Anthony Black has been known to frequent Indiana and Westmoreland counties. A month ago, a judge ordered Black to stay with his mother in Blairsville while he was free on his own recognizance awaiting trial for a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Paladino, Edwards Win in Primary

Buffalo developer Carl Paladino beat Rick Lazio in the Republican gubernatorial primary to set up a November showdown with Democrat Andrew Cuomo.

Paladino received Tea Party support in defeating Lazio, who had backing from the Republican Party.

However, Lazio's running mate Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards won the Republican primary for lieutenant governor. Lazio and Edwards were able to keep the Conservative Party nomination for governor, meaning Edwards could run for lieutenant governor with Lazio as a Conservative and for lieutenant governor on the Republican line with Paladino.

Edwards hasn't made a decision yet.

US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand easily won a Democratic primary challenge from Gail Goode, a lawyer for New York City.

Goode said she realized she was not considered a threat to Gillibrand, who was appointed last year to fill the unexpired term of Hillary Rodham Clinton, but ran to give voters a choice.

Joseph DioGuardi won the three-way Republican primary and wi…
