PUNXSUTAWNEY ‚ÄĒ Carol Stephens, one of Rose Setree‚Äôs caretakers, had arrived at Rose‚Äôs apartment above the New Anchor Inn Nov. 7 to begin her 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift.
Rose said she had gone to bed around 10:30 p.m. after a busy day that included attending church and going to the grocery store.
‚ÄúSabrina (another one of Rose‚Äôs caretakers) had given a report, and she had left, so I just checked on Rose, turned the lights on and then I was watching the news,‚ÄĚ Carol recalled this week. ‚ÄúBut I looked up and smelled plastic burning.
PITTSBURGH ‚ÄĒ Nine-year-old Blaise Carney‚Äôs been on a football field for so many years, he knows what to expect this Sunday in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition.

He‚Äôll compete in the eight-to-nine-year-old boys‚Äô division.
PITTSBURGH ‚ÄĒ When you first lay eyes on 11-year-old Abby Jo Northey of Brookville, her bright red hair and small stature would lead you to believe that she was preparing for just about anything other than the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition.
Then you sit back and watch Northey do her thing, and it all starts to make a lot of sense.
