Court officials say a Harmony Township man waived his preliminary hearing Friday on charges he threatened to shoot two women during a road-rage incident last month. It allegedly started near Tenth Avenue and Seventh Street in New Brighton with Natralia Matthews threatening to fight Kasey Mooney for something that happened on the road. Matthews left the scene only to return with Desmond Council, who reportedly had a handgun in his waistband when he threatened to slap the victims and said several times he would shoot them. Council has a trial date set for March 2nd in Beaver County Court.Source: Man Charged with Threatening to Shoot Two Women in New Brighton – Beaver County Radio

It is the site of the worst commercial nuclear power accident in US history.
On the same day of the closure, hundreds of people rallied to keep the Beaver Valley Power Station up and running.
Workers, neighbors and several State Representatives voiced their concerns and gathered in great numbers on the steps of the Beaver County Courthouse to speak out and to be heard in Harrisburg.

They are demanding action by the state legislature and Governor Tom Wolf to enact energy policy reforms to prevent the plant from closing and to keep the smokestacks working.
One of the speakers was State Representative Rob Matzie.
“We are hopeful that we can craft something that has bipartisan support that can actually be voted out of committee, debated on the floor and get to the Governor’s desk,” he said. “It’s a tough task, I’m not gonna lie.”
