WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is considering a significant expansion of the U.S. military footprint in the Middle East, including dozens more ships, other military hardware and as many as 14,000 additional troops to counter Iran, U.S. officials said.
The deployment could double the number of U.S. military personnel who have been sent to the region since the start of a troop buildup in May. President Donald Trump is expected to make a decision on the new deployments as soon as this month, those officials said.
Trump, facing an election next year, has long sought to exit foreign entanglements and avoid new conflicts. But on Iran — and partly at the behest of Israel — he is convinced of the need to counter the threat his aides say Tehran poses, the officials said. He also could approve a smaller U.S. deployment, the officials said.

Greensburg police arrested two area men Wednesday for allegedly providing a fentanyl-laced heroin dose that killed a 48-year-old woman last summer.
Julian V. Cancro, 37, of Greensburg, and Matthew T. Caughey, 46, of Youngwood, were charged with drug delivery resulting in death in connection with the Aug. 30 death of Darice R. Franke, 48.
Police were called to Cancro’s apartment on the 500 block of Highland Avenue at 4:22 a.m. Aug. 29 for a report of a woman who had overdosed. Detective Sgt. John Swank said Franke was “unresponsive” on the bathroom floor with two empty stamp bags of heroin and a hypodermic needle lying nearby.
Franke, who has lived in Greensburg and Jeannette, was taken by ambulance to Excela Health Westmoreland hospital in Greensburg where she died the next day, Swank reported.

The recalled salads were produced by Fuji Food Products and distributed to Giant Eagle, Trader Joe’s, Walgreens and other outlets.

Exposure to listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems.
The product was sold and/or distributed in the following states and includes the following retailers:
Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

A shooting at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii sent three people to the hospital Wednesday, sources told Fox News, adding that the scene was “under control as of now.”
It was not immediately clear whether the shooter was among those hospitalized.
The incident occurred at approximately 2:30 p.m. local time at Drydock 2.
Officials locked down buildings and a PA system urged anyone on base to take cover, Hawaii News Now reported. The lockdown was lifted around 4 p.m. local time.
The gates at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam were closed as first responders rushed to the scene, according to a tweet issued by the base.
Emergency crews rushed to the scene of a reported fatal crash in McCandless early this morning.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Emergency crews rushed to the scene of a reported fatal crash in McCandless early this morning.

The Trump administration Wednesday formalized work requirements for recipients of food stamps, a move that will cause hundreds of thousands of people to lose access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Brandon Lipps, the deputy undersecretary for the USDA’s Food Nutrition and Consumer Services, spent about 18 minutes on a call with reporters outlining the changes to the rule that will take effect April 1.
“We’re taking action to reform our SNAP program in order to restore the dignity of work to a sizable segment of our population and be respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program,” Perdue said. “Americans are generous people who believe it is their responsibility to help their fellow citizens when they encounter a difficult stretch. That’s the commitment behind SNAP, but, like other welfare programs, it was never intended to be a way of life.”
Aside from being a top-down review of the district’s finances, the plan brings in community groups to help give expertise and possibly money to improve issues in the district.
The key categories: Student pathways, areas of interest, school design and school/performance improvement.
The community groups stepping up to help: UPMC Children’s Hospital, Achieva, Heinz Endowment, CCAC and the Buhl Foundation, to name a few.
Over the next six months, the district will work with a specific group to figure out plans to improve classrooms and get students ready for the jobs of tomorrow.
Kamala Harris is ending her presidential campaign after months of failing to lift her candidacy from the bottom of the field — a premature departure for a California senator once heralded as a top-tier contender for the nomination.
Harris told aides of her intentions in an all-staff call on Tuesday, and a person familiar with the conversation said she sounded distraught. While Harris had qualified for the December debate in her home state later this month, she was running dangerously low on cash — lacking the resources to air TV ads in Iowa — and her staff was gripped by long-running internal turmoil.
MCMURRAY (KDKA) — Multiple fire companies respond for hours Monday night in Peters Township.
The fire broke out in a home at the end of a secluded road where an elderly couple lived.
When firefighters arrived the wife was out of the home but her husband was not able to make it out.
Firefighters had to go in to rescue him. The first time they tried to reach him, the smoke was heavy and they had to wait for a pumper truck to arrive.
“And they had said that there was entrapment inside the house,” said Chief Michael McLaughlin, of the Peters Township Fire Department.
A neighbor called 911 shortly before 5:30 p.m. after seeing smoke coming from the home at the end of the street on Clara Lane.
Neighbors told fire crews that an elderly couple lived at the end of the cul-de-sac. The wife had made it out, but her husband was still inside.
“We stretched the line into the house and we were able to stretch the line and continue our search, they found a victim at that time, inside of the house,” Chief McLaughlin said.
