Canadian Food Inspection Agency warns of spotted lanternfly pest nears border
Canadian Food Inspection Agency is asking Canadians to keep an eye out for an invasive bug that could spell disaster for the country’s wineries and fruit growers.The spotted lanternfly is a pest native to China that has been making inroads in the United States since 2014.Thus far, the small grey-and-red insect with spotted wings has not been found alive in Canada. Avian flu outbreaks confirmed on B.C., Alberta farms after brief pause in cases But in early September, hundreds of adults were found in a residential area in Buffalo, N.Y., just 45 km away from the Canadian border.The reports set off alarms at the CFIA, which in a tweet last week asked Canadians to report any sightings of the pest on this side of the border “immediately.”The insect feeds on sap, mainly from fruit trees, and can cause serious harm to orchards and vineyards.“We’re becoming more and more concerned about the proximity to Canada, and particularly our grape-growing industries, because this is a pest that has had significant impacts on the grape and fruit industry in the United States,” said Diana Mooij, a specialist in the invasive alien species program within the CFIA.The first North American sighting of the pest was in Pennsylvania in 2014, and since then, a tracking program monitored by Cornell University has documented the pest in 14 U.S.

Fanta Bility shooting: 3 Sharon Hill officers charged in child's shooting death due in court
SHARON HILL, Pa. - The three Sharon Hill police officers charged in the death of Fanta Bility, 8, are due in court Monday. Officers Devon Smith, Sean Dolan and Brian Devaney are each charged with 12 criminal counts of manslaughter and reckless endangerment in relation to the August 2021 shooting. The officers were also fired from the force following the fatal shooting. Authorities say Bility and her family were leaving a football game at Academy Park High School when a shooting between two men erupted in a crowd of people. Bullets from the shooting were fired in the direction of the three officers who were monitoring the crowd. RELATED HEADLINESThe officers reportedly returned fire, shooting toward a car they believed was involved in the initial gunfire, fatally striking Bility, officials say. Investigators later determined that the bullets fired toward the officers originated from an argument between 16-year-old Angelo "A.J." Ford and Hasein Strand, 19. The officers are set to arrive at the Delaware County courthouse in Media, Pennsylvania, to learn the fate of the charges against them. The mother of 8-year-old Fanta Bility spoke to FOX 29's Jeff Cole on the eve of the one-year anniversary of the deadly police shooting that claimed the life of her daughter. The family was leaving a Delaware County high school football game when a shooting erupted between two men and prompted nearby officers to return fire.

Mail ballot fight persists in key states, sure to slow count
PITTSBURGH, UNITED STATES - 2020/11/02: An official election ballot of Pennsylvania of 2020 featuring Biden / Harris, Trump / Pence and Jorgensen / Cohen ahead of the presidential elections.2020 elections are close and will involve voting via absente HARRISBURG, Pa. - Former President Donald Trump and his allies seized on the drawn-out vote processing and counting in Pennsylvania during the 2020 election to fuel his false claims that fraud cost him victory in the battleground state — and election officials worry that a replay could be on the horizon in November's crucial Senate and governor's races.And it's not just Pennsylvania. Michigan and Wisconsin are other crucial swing states that allow no-excuse mail-in ballots but give local election offices no time before Election Day to process them.Election workers' inability to do that work ahead of time means many of the mailed ballots may not get counted on Election Day, delaying results in tight races and leaving a gaping hole for misinformation and lies to flood the public space."That time between the polls closing on election night and the last vote being counted is really being exploited by people who want to undermine confidence in the process," said Al Schmidt, a Philadelphia election commissioner during the 2020 presidential election who is now president and CEO of the good-government group Committee of Seventy.The first step in processing mailed ballots, or pre-canvassing, is a routine but crucial administrative task that allows election workers to verify voters’ signatures and addresses, or spot problems that could be fixed by voters.

Pennsylvania nanny accused of using a parent's credit card for high-end shopping spree
WEST WHITELAND TWP, Pa. - A Pennsylvania nanny is accused of using a parent's credit card to rack up thousands in charges, including a shopping spree at several high-end retail stores. Jessica Gadebusch, 20, was arrested and charged with third-degree felony after authorities say the parents of two noticed nearly $8k in erroneous charges on their card. Anne Carlin, an Exton resident, said she hired Gadebusch when their daycare was suddenly closed by the state due to allegations made against the staff. "We went on Facebook to the babysitting nanny groups and we saw Jessica’s post that she was available immediately," Carlin said.MORE LOCAL HEADLINESDuring Gadebusch's two-week stint as the Carlin's nanny she was given their credit card to take their kids to the zoo and returned the card after the trip. The Carlin's then noticed thousands of hundreds of dollars in charges at Sephora and LuluLemon, as well as an AirBnb transaction. Investigators with the West Whiteland Township Police Department later found the Gadebusch added the Carlin's card to her Apple Wallet to make the purchases."We have to warn our residents that this type of thing may happen," Detective Scott Pezick said. "we allow people in our house, nannys, cleaners, home healthcare workers, and sometimes it’s just an opportunity for people to make bad decisions."Anne Carlin and her husband allegedly had thousands charged to their credit card by their nannny.
