Nursing students from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford took time off from their nursing studies this week to make fleece blankets for Project Linus, a non-profit organization that delivers blankets to children in need. The Student Nurse Organization held a fall fundraiser to purchase materials for 22 blankets, which will be sent to seriously ill children at Pittsburgh Children’s hospital. Shown here, from left, are Mary Boser, assistant professor of nursing and SNO advisor, Amber Steward of Bradford, Chris Augustine and Francine Augustine of Custer City, and Laura Morris of Sheffield.
Two people were arrested on drug charges after state police got a report about unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Troopers found the vehicle in Randolph on Wednesday and arrested the driver, 31-year-old Bridget Bardo of Conewango, for aggravated unlicensed operation and criminal possession of a controlled substance. She was released on her own recognizance and scheduled to appear in Town of Randolph Court.
Her passenger, 28-year-old Andrew Jaquish of Salamanca, was charged with three counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance. Police also learned there was an active warrant against him from City of Jamestown Court. He was sent to Chautauqua County Jail on $1,000 bail.
