Penn State receives ‘It’s On Us PA’ grant from Gov. Tom Wolf to combat sexual assault | Campus | collegian.psu.edu

Along with 35 other colleges and universities, Penn State will receive up to $30,000 to help combat campus sexual assaults from Governor Wolf’s ‘It’s On Us PA’ campaign.

The money is intended to be used toward accomplishing the goals outlined in Wolf’s campaign plan. The goals include:

1. Improve awareness, prevention, reporting, and response systems regarding sexual violence in schools, colleges and universities to better serve all students.

2. Remove/reduce barriers that prevent survivors of sexual violence from reporting and/or accessing vital resources by creating a more consistent, empowering reporting process for student survivors of gender based violence.

3. Demonstrate significant, proactive, and sustainable leadership to change campus culture by challenging Pennsylvania’s education leaders — including college and university presidents, superintendents — as well as students, teachers, faculty, staff, families, and communities to pledge to improve their institutions’ climate.

911 call chronicles teacher’s plea for police after student gunman is disarmed by his parents at Utah school | The Salt Lake Tribune

Bountiful • After a 15-year-old Mueller Park Junior High School student fired a shotgun blast inside a classroom Thursday morning and was then apprehended by his own parents, fellow student Calvin Smith said he wanted to cry.

“It was scary,” Smith said.”It was terrifying.”

Smith was in a 9th grade earth science class, which had just begun, when the alleged shooter, also a 15-year-old boy, entered the classroom, pointed the shotgun at the ceiling and fired.

Smith said the alleged shooter, wearing a large black trench-style coat, then stood for a few seconds, glowering angrily, as another student pleaded: “You don’t want to do this.”

Police, family seek info after man, 67, found in East Pittsburgh street with severe injuries

Louie Cagnacci was found with severe injuries to his head and body, and his family is trying to piece together what happened.

67-year-old Louie Cagnacci was found with head trauma, seven broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken collar bone, and bruises on his back. Investigators initially could not say if he was assaulted or if he was hit by a car.

“Please, contact the police. Come forward if you know anything,” said Sharon Krivansky, a cousin of Cagnacci in a Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 interview.

East Pittsburgh Police Chief Lori Fruncek said Cagnacci was found around 9 p.m. Wednesday, near the intersection of Center and Main. A passenger in a passing car saw Cagnacci lying in the middle of the street and dragged him to the side of the road to prevent him being hit by any passing car. The good samaritan called police and paramedics to the scene.

Anthony Weiner gets screwed by city auditors | New York Post

Anthony Weiner just can’t catch a break.

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner has been whacked with big fines for the improper use of 2013 mayoral campaign funds — including to pay for a personal cell phone.

An audit by the Campaign Finance Board found that Weiner’s campaign committee expensed two mobile lines — one of which the disgraced pol said was used for fundraising.

But auditors concluded that “because this line remained the Candidate’s personal phone from May-September 2013, its usage is presumed to be personal.”

The CFB hit the campaign for that and other irregularities to the tune of nearly $65,000 in penalties.

Smith said the shooting may be connected to another one in the area in the last several days.
