A video on a Facebook page shows the daring rescue of a bear in Pennsylvania.
It appears the small black bear’s head was trapped inside of a plastic bucket and according to a Facebook page called “Save the Bucket Bear” set up on Sunday, the bear had been spotted with the bucket on head for more than a month.
Pictures of the “Bucket Bear” and pleas for the game commission in the Perry Township area to take humane action to help the bear were posted to the Facebook page.
Online reports say the men in the video are volunteers who went on a mission to help the bear after authorities did not respond immediately.
The video is pretty unbelievable and we do not suggest anyone attempting rescues like this—but it is nice to see a happy ending for the curious bear.Tue, 02 Sep 2014 09:41:31 -0400
A Colorado woman was in a rush to drop off her daughter’s saxophone at school, which had been left at home.
Christina Jahnz says she was running late for a business meeting, so she used the voice-to-text feature to send a message, but when she looked down to proofread it, she hit a pole.
“The next thing I knew, I was looking up, there was white powder from the air bags deployed." Jahnz told Denver TV station KUSA.
The guardrail pole went through the front of her truck, through her thigh, out her buttocks and through the seat. Firefighters in the Colorado town had to cut both ends of the pole to free her from the truck.
Jahnz spent four days in the hospital and is now getting around with the help of a walker. Doctors say she should make a full recovery, but she wants everyone to hear her message.
"It's devastating knowing that I could have prevented it to begin with. I just hope my story helps to save the lives of others. Don't text and drive," Jahnz said.

(AP) Dominion Resources, Duke Energy and other partners have proposed building a $5 billion natural gas pipeline to connect the Southeast with the prodigious supplies of natural gas being produced in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.
Gas is being relied upon to generate more of the nation's electricity in recent years because the enormous new domestic supplies have drastically lowered its price and it burns cleaner than the nation's other most important fuel for electric power, coal.
The 550-mile project will begin in Harrison County, West Virginia and stretch to Robeson County, North Carolina, in the southern part of the state.
The partners, which included Piedmont Natural Gas and AGL Resources, expect to receive regulatory approval by mid-2016 and to start operating the pipeline in 2018.Tue, 02 Sep 2014 08:56:55 -0400 News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
