PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” It has been a long, hot summer for everyone, especially those who work outdoors. But there is a certain group that must deal with heat and dehydration issues throughout the year: Firefighters.
Firefighting is a tough job, work so physically intense that it demands every ounce of energy a firefighter can muster. Sometimes, it takes a toll.
BROOKVILLE â€” For the past few months, Tea Party members have been asking the Jefferson County Commissioners to research a mortgage-recording system that they believe is causing the county to lose money.
MERS, a Mortgage Electronic Registry System, is set up to allow the assignment of mortgages without recording the assignment in the county recorder's office.
Because of the concern displayed by some Brookville residents, the commissioners asked the county's solicitor, Jim Dennison, to thoroughly examine MERS.
ROSSITER â€” Both the Indiana County Coroner and Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police have identified the man whose body had been sought by numerous water rescue teams since his boat capsized Saturday afternoon on Hemlock Lake, Banks Township.
In separate reports, both Coroner Michael Baker and PSP-Punxsy said the man was identified as Gary Lynn Korney, 63, Glen Campbell.
Korney's body was difficult to find due to darkness, high winds and poor visibility, Baker said. It was discovered and removed from the lake around 8:45 a.m. Monday.
