TROOPER SHOOTS MAN
LEBANON _ A prosecutor says a state trooper who shot a man armed with a knife seven times after a foot chase in central Pennsylvania will not face any charges in the man’s death.
NEW YORK — The Verb is “win.” A border collie named Verb won the Westminster Kennel Club’s agility contest Saturday night, tearing through an obstacle course like it was a walk in the dog park and leaping into owner Perry DeWitt’s arms at the end. “He is the epitome of a good partner,” said DeWitt, a professional dog trainer from Wyncote, Pennsylvania. She said she gets nervous before they compete, but 5-year-old Verb doesn’t. By Jennifer Peltz. SENT: About 680 words. Moved very late for Sunday AMs.
BONDED BY MURDERS-FOOTBALL DREAMS
YORK _ About 10 years ago, Khalid Dorsey was supposed to be getting ready for a youth football game. Instead, he was out playing catch with his best friend Demonte Martin. That’s when this new kid from Lancaster, Dayjure Stewart, walked up wearing a Conestoga Valley jersey. They waved him over to join them. That’s all it took, three boys and a football. Since that day, the three boys from York have been close to inseparable. At the time, they lived on three different streets in the city. In reality, they were like neighbors. Even as kids, they all had the same dream: They wanted to play NCAA Division I football. They reflected on their bond _ and the tragedies that deepened it _ as they prepared to sign letters of intent on National Signing Day. Jim Seip, York Daily Record.
GIRLFRIEND SLAIN _ A defense attorney says a head injury three decades ago should bar the trial of a western Pennsylvania man in the bludgeoning death of his life-in girlfriend almost five years ago.
