New Jersey state troopers rescue 3 puppies from 10-foot trench using mop, rope

MERCER COUNTY, N.J. - A terrifying ordeal had a happy ending thanks to the quick-thinking actions of a group of troopers.Three puppies got trapped in an irrigation trench after wandering off into the woods in Hamilton Township, according to a Facebook post by New Jersey State Police.The trench was approximately 10 feet underground, requiring a rescue from some local heroes who set out to save the puppies by any means."While we do not teach puppy saving techniques in the academy, the troopers created a makeshift catch pole using a mop handle and rope.," the post explained.Several hours later, two of the three puppies had been pulled from the trench.

However, it all proved too tiring for the third puppy who "decided to take a nap.""The troopers returned the next day to save the third puppy who was now wide awake and waiting to be rescued," police said.Now all three puppies are safe, and at least one has been adopted with the "perfect" name - Trooper!

Mildreth Santamaria Tirado, 40, has been charged with Theft by Deception after attempting to scam an 80-year-old NJ man out of $15,000.  HAMILTON, N.J. - A woman in New York has been charged after attempting to scam a New Jersey man out of $15,000, police say. According to authorities, on April 15, an 80-year-old Hamilton resident said he received a phone call from a man claiming to work for the FBI. Police say the person on the phone told the 80-year-old that his daughter was in FBI custody for possession of 100 pounds of marijuana and that 10% of $200,000 would be needed to secure her release. The 80-year-old called the fake FBI employee back after securing $115,000 and the person stated that someone would come to pick the money up, according to police. Officials with the Hamilton Police Department say the 80-year-old victim was then able to reach his daughter to learn she was not in FBI custody and then he called police. Officers with the Hamilton Police Anti-Crime Unit located 40-year-old Mildreth Santamaria-Tirado of Corona, New York as she was speaking to the 80-year-old victim on the porch of his home attempting to pick up the $15,000, authorities say. Santamaria-Tirado was charged with Theft by Deception and released from police custody pending trial. ___MORE LOCAL HEADLINES___DOWNLOAD: FOX 29 NEWS APP | FOX 29 WEATHER AUTHORITY APPSUBSCRIBE: Good Day Digest Newsletter | FOX 29 Philly on YouTubeAdvertisementFOLLOW: Facebook | Instagram | Twitter

BA.2 variant, waning immunity to push ‘resurgence’ of Hamilton COVID-19 infections: public health
COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations through the spring of 2022 due to increased transmission of BA.2 variant and relaxed public health measures.During a board of health meeting on Monday, the latest Scarsin forecasting is suggesting COVID-19 will continue to circulate in the city well into June and that residents will be more susceptible to infection with immunity waning.Current epidemiological data suggests the city is now on course with a so-called “resurgence scenario” — the worst of two forecasts presented to city councillors in March — that could produce 400 new COVID hospitalizations between now and the end of June. Ontario COVID update: 857 people in hospital, 168 in intensive care “New hospital admissions are likely to continue into the summer and may reach almost six per day,” Hamilton public heath epidemiologist Ruth Sanderson told councillors.The updated numbers suggest the impact of Omicron subvariant BA.2 represents around 45 per cent of all cases now sprouting up in Hamilton as of the end of March.It’s expected that overall COVID case numbers in the next few months will be half of the peak seen during the Omicron wave in mid-January with the latest wave expected to hit a high in early May of about 650 cases per week.Peak hospitalizations are also expected to be half of the 14 admitted per week in mid-January.Those aged between 60 and 79 are the demographic most likely to be impacted by potential hospitalization during the next wave.It’s estimated 16 COVID-related deaths are possible between now and the end of June.Hamilton’s medical officer of health Dr.

Legal challenges of employer COVID-19 vaccine mandates largely tossed out, experts say
COVID-19: Saskatchewan business owners wonder how no proof of vaccine will affect business “The first decisions have clearly set the tone in favour of employers and their obligation to maintain a safe workplace,” said Adam Savaglio, an employment lawyer and partner with Scarfone Hawkins LLP in Hamilton, Ont.“We have a significant number of arbitration decisions in unionized environments that are showing that vaccine mandates and restrictions are being upheld.”A recent arbitration decision between Hydro One Inc. and the Power Workers’ Union dismissed the grievances of multiple workers placed on unpaid leave for failing to comply with the utility’s COVID-19 vaccination policy.The policy required unvaccinated workers — and those who declined to reveal their vaccination status– to take regular rapid tests.In his decision, chief arbitrator John Stout said the policy is reasonable and necessary to address the ongoing health and safety issues arising from the pandemic.“Prohibiting employees from attending work if they do not provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 (rapid antigen test) is fair and reasonable in the circumstances of this pandemic,” he said in his decision.“Hydro One is complying with their obligations under the Occupational Health & Safety Act to take reasonable precautions to protect the health and safety of their employees and the public that they serve.”The arbitrator also dismissed the union’s position that the workers should have been able to work from home.
