Woman Charged with Taking $77,000 from Pa. Ambulance Service

first_imgSHARPSBURG, Pa. — A Sharpsburg-based ambulance service recovering from bankruptcy in 2006 became prey to a long-term embezzlement by its former office manager, who stole more than $77,000 over a five-year period, Allegheny County prosecutors say.The District Attorney`s Office charged Sunshine MacIntyre, 40, of Summer Hill with theft and access device fraud stemming from her job at Seneca Area Emergency Services.District Judge Elissa Marie Lang arraigned MacIntyre today and released her on her own recognizance. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 25.There was no telephone listing for MacIntyre. Her lawyer, David B. Chontos, couldn`t be reached for comment.Chief Susan Allison said the $77,000 represents about two months of revenue for the nonprofit ambulance service, which covers Sharpsburg, Etna and parts of Indiana Township. Losing that money hurt, but it was spread out over five years, she said.The ambulance service operates on a shoestring, but is in better shape than when the embezzlement was discovered in June, she said.“The shoestring is a little longer than it was,” Allison said. “We`re happy with that.”last_img

LU Hall of Honor member Bud Leonard dies

first_imgBEAUMONT — W.S. “Bud” Leonard, one of the all-time great athletes in Lamar University history, died at the age of 90.A 1974 inductee into the Cardinals Hall of Honor, Leonard was the co-captain of the 1949 Lamar College squad that would go on to win a SWJC co-championship. That team went on to be known as one of the greatest in programs history. The 1949 team claimed 10 wins to take home the title, a record which still stands as the school’s highest single-season win total for either the junior college or four-year institution.The 1949 Cardinals recorded 13 consecutive wins – a streak that began with the final four games of the 1948 campaign – and still stands as the longest streak in program history. Next UpDuring Leonard’s time in Beaumont, he was part of one of the biggest transitions in school history. In 1951, the school became Lamar State College of Technology and moved from junior college status to a state-supported four-year institution. Lamar College became the first Texas junior college to attempt that transition.Leonard’s leadership skills also transitioned into the classroom, where he was the recipient of the John E. Gray Award as the school’s top student-athlete.Leonard remained active with the university long after his playing career was over. He served the Ex-Students Association in many capacities, was a member of the university’s 50th Anniversary Committee and was an organizing member of the Fine Arts Department’s Friends of Art organization. His interest in LU athletics never faded, as he was the founding president of the Ex-Lettermen’s Association and the Cardinals Hall of Honor. He was also one of the founders of the Cardinal Club and served as its second president in 1970-71. Leonard’s legacy will continue to live on at the home of Cardinals’ football. In August 2008, university officials announced that the field at Provost Umphrey Stadium would be named in his honor — W.S. “Bud” Leonard Field.— Lamar sports informationlast_img read more

Parlee Introduces SLi Road Bike Option for Electronic Shifting Groups

first_imgParlee has a new SLi frame that’s a Di2-only version of their SL full carbon road frame that removes all shifter cable stops and runs the electronic wires internally. It has a custom battery mount bonded to the carbon chainstay, which puts it out of the way and keeps the center of gravity low. Price is the same as the regular SL, $4,700, and includes a ENVE 1.0 fork, carbon seatpost clamp and carbon front derailleur clamp. Weight between the SL and SLi frames will be within 15-20g – it loses the weight of the cable stops but gains the battery mount.Lots of closeup detail pics and more info after the break, plus their new solution to running standard Shimano cranks on new PFBB30 frames! They used Shimano’s short battery mount attached to a mount bonded directly to the frame for a super clean look.The other difference is the SLi gets a PFBB30, where current models of the Z5 and SL have regular BB30 for now. When making the switch to PFBB30, they needed a solution for running Shimano’s standard cranks. Rather than rely on existing bearings with adapters, they developed a new alloy bearing cup that presses into the frame and fits standard Shimano cranks. What’s really cool is this piece will fit any PFBB30 frame and should be available aftermarket soon.The SLi is also available through their custom program, which uses non-standard lug and tube construction (as in, the lugs are wrapped together to allow custom angles and geometry), shown above and below and in the pic highlighting the PFBB30 adapter.They’ll probably be doing an “i” version of the Z5 in the future, especially as Ultegra Di2 comes around.last_img read more

Olivia Hardy on Taking Summer: The Donna Summer Musical on the Road and Finding Her ‘Inner Donna’

first_imgAs one third of the Donnas, Hardy works closely with co-stars Dan’yelle Williamson and Alex Hairston who play Diva and Disco Donna, respectively. “Alex and Dan’yelle are some of the most hardworking and most talented women I think I’ve ever met,” she said. “From the moment I met them for the very first time, they were incredibly welcoming and humble and embracing me into this Donna trio family. I’m very lucky and grateful to work with these two amazing ladies.”Bringing Donna Summer’s life to the stage is no easy feat, but Hardy is up for the challenge. “I want to make sure I get her authenticity right,” she said. “But I also want to keep a piece of me a part of it, too. I do the research while also recognizing that we’re not trying to be exactly like Donna. We’re trying to emulate her through our own personal experiences. Playing Duckling Donna, I tap into the dreams she had that are the same ones I had. It’s been cool to meet the two in the middle and find my inner Donna”Catch Hardy in Summer: A Donna Summer Musical in a city near you!Watch the full #LiveAtFive interview below!

Unlike many college seniors, Olivia Hardy isn’t spending her days in the library studying for an exam or getting ready for the next big football game. Instead, she’s gearing up to star in the first national tour of Summer: The Donna Summer Musical as Duckling Donna. Before she takes the musical across the country, Hardy stopped by Broadway.com’s #LiveAtFive to talk all about stepping into the music icon’s shoes. “I was actually in Berlin, Germany when I found out I got the role,” she told Ryan Lee Gilbert. “I was still at school and I got an email from my agent to self-tape for it back in the beginning of April. I didn’t hear anything back until mid-May and then I came to New York and auditioned in person three times. But yeah, I was sitting in my friend’s room in Germany when I got the email. Wild.”Hardy portrays the youngest of the three Donnas and can relate to her character since she herself is still in school. “I’m a senior, technically,” she said. “I’m taking a leave of absence, but I still have credits to finish that I’m doing online while I’m on this tour. After the tour, I have to go back for one more semester, I gotta get that degree.” View Commentslast_img read more
