    A loving mother, Christine Waltz often sent care packages to her son while he was deployed in Afghanistan. After realizing that many others did not receive care packages from their loved ones at home, she made it her mission to change that. So Waltz began the non-profit organization For the Love of a Veteran. Waltz is the driving force behind For the Love of a Veteran, which not only sends packages overseas, but now provides backpacks to homeless veterans, supports various holiday campaigns, and raises awareness in fighting against post-traumatic stress disorder. The organization currently supports about 2,500 troops. Waltz could have simply turned a blind eye to other deployed service members, but what she did instead was extraordinary and has made a difference in the lives of thousands of others.

    Scott Kurtz and William Summe, White Rose Ambulance EMTs, were dispatched to a medical emergency in York on a January evening after receiving a medical alarm call. As the first to arrive at the scene, they noticed smoke, and immediately radioed York County 911 and requested the fire department. After attempting to reach the second floor, Kurtz and Summe were met with heavy smoke and updated the fire department with the critical information that there were people trapped on the floor. Then then made their way to the third floor, where they assisted an occupant and a baby to safety via a fire escape. In the face of the emergency, Kurtz and Summe put their own safety at risk for the well-being of others. Thanks to their quick thinking and actions, the occupants of the third floor were uninjured and the fire department was able to rescue a trapped occupant of the second floor, who made a full recovery.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) Some parents in the Central Dauphin School District are upset after a substitute school bus driver dropped elementary school students off  at a convenience store near a busy intersection instead of in their neighborhoods. The bus carrying students from South Side Elementary School was running late on Friday. Parents spotted the bus but realized the driver was not going the correct route. They said the driver let out about 45 students near a convenience store at Walnut Street and Penbrook Avenue. The driver then left. “The bus driver, he did the wrong thing and I don’t know why he did it,” said Eric Veronikis, an upset parent. Parents and some neighbors helped the students stay safe and calm while they figured out how to get them home. The Central Dauphin School District Superintendent Dr. Carol Johnson released a statement Friday night. “We deeply regret this incident and the alarm that this caused for both students and their families. We are grateful for the quick response of parents and other residents in the neighborhood who immediately reacted to escort students to safety.”

  • Some Highmark customers booted from UPMC-Pinnacle hospitals and doctorsSome Highmark customers booted from UPMC-Pinnacle hospitals and doctors

    She is from Halifax. She owns and runs a small business. She has been a longtime Highmark customer and a longtime Pinnaclehealth patient. She, and presumably many like her in the Midstate, has a difficult decision to make regarding health coverage. She didn’t want to be identified. We’ll call her Denise. Denise recently got a letter from Highmark saying UPMC-Pinnacle doctors and hospitals will no longer be considered in-network for 2018. It is not uncommon, says Pennsylvania acting Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman, for the roughly five percent of Pennsylvanians not covered by insurance through work and purchasing on the market. “Particularly in the individual market where there’s a drive to lower the monthly premium, a lot of plans have what we call narrow networks where they control costs by limiting the number of providers in the network,” Altman said. Altman said Highmark and UPMC Pinnacle have agreed to work together for seven years, but that’s for people in larger group plans, not one-off customers like Denise. So Denise, and people like her, have two choices: stick with Highmark and change doctors and hospitals to Penn State Hershey Medical Center or Geisinger Holy Spirit which are in-network, or stick with UPMC Pinnacle Health doctors and hospitals and switch to a likely more expensive insurance plan. “Most health plans these days don’t have all the doctors in your area in-network, and that’s something you should think about when you are comparing health plans,” Altman said. ABC27 reached out to both UPMC Pinnacle and Highmark. Both confirmed Denise’s story. Neither would go on camera, but both sent statements. Highmark said it’s sad but understands that some customers will have to go elsewhere. It added, “Pinnacle was asked to be in the network but WOULD NOT (emphasis theirs) negotiate the appropriate discount that would make the product affordable.” The statement from UPMC Pinnacle acknowledges that “patients experiencing confusion and frustration.” But frustration barely describes what Denise is feeling. She spends $900 a month on premiums now with large deductibles and co-pays and fears those costs are only going up, especially if she tries to stay in the UPMC Pinnacle system. She sees employees in the Highmark group plans enjoying services under the UPMC Pinnacle umbrella and suspects she’s paying more and getting less because her company is too small to be in a group. Denise feels penalized and victimized. “Why are we being treated this way? Just because we are a small business and work extra hard? We do not have 9-5, we work 24-7,” she said. “Something is not right with this system.” If you’re shopping for health insurance, the open enrollment is shorter this year. It must be completed by Dec. 15, not the end of January like previous years. Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go. Download our News App and our Weather App for your phone and tablet.

  • Ex-police chief pleads guilty to stealing from social clubEx-police chief pleads guilty to stealing from social club

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A former police chief has admitted in court that he stole gaming tickets from a Harrisburg social club. Howard Dougherty, 66, of Lemoyne, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Dauphin County Court to one count of theft by unlawful taking, the district attorney’s office said. He was sentenced to 18 months of probation. Police said Dougherty was president of Der Harrisburg Maennerchor social club when a surveillance camera recorded him stealing the tickets from a closet where the tickets were stored in May 2016. Club members had installed an infra-red camera — which can record images in darkness — because they suspected someone was stealing tickets. Video from the camera showed Dougherty stuffing handfuls of tickets in his pockets, prosecutors said. Authorities estimate he was caught on camera stealing nearly $200 worth of tickets. Dougherty was previously the chief of the West Shore Regional Police Department and the former borough manager of Lemoyne. Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go.

  • Harrisburg man, 22, arrested for murders of 2 stepsistersHarrisburg man, 22, arrested for murders of 2 stepsisters

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A city man has been arrested for the killings of two stepsisters last week. Jeremiah Battle, 22, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the Nov. 9 beatings and shootings of 16-year-old Kaliah Dearing and 24-year-old Natasha Harner. Jeremiah Battle (Dauphin County Prison) Battle also faces a charge of burglary for breaking into the home in the 2200 block of Logan Street and an additional count of tampering with evidence. Investigators say Battle disposed of the gun he used and it has not been recovered. Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said Battle was “acquainted” with at least one of the young women if not both victims and an older sister who lived with them. “He was friends with them; I’ll term it like that for now,” he said. It is not known whether the older sister was home at the time of the killings or arrived later to find the bodies. “We’re still investigating what her whereabouts were and exactly where she was,” Marsico said. “We’ll have more information on that later.” Police were called to the home shortly after 5 p.m. Marsico said the stepsisters were killed “at some point after midday.” Kaliah Dearing, left, and Natasha Harner (submitted) Investigators have not determined a motive, but Marsico said the first-degree murder charges allege that Battle went into the home with the intent to kill. “We can’t give a lot of details at this time about the factual basis for our charges other than, suffice it to say, that we have sufficient evidence to place Mr. Battle at the crime, that he’s the one who committed these horrible, tragic murders,” he said. Police Chief Thomas Carter said cooperation from the public helped police to make the arrest. He said investigators put nearly 1,000 hours into solving the case. “My resources were almost shot, but we didn’t give up. We didn’t quit. There were a lot of sleepless nights,” Carter said. The arrest followed a search of Battle’s home in the 1700 block of North Street, in the city’s Allison Hill neighborhood, around 6 a.m. Thursday. According to a search warrant affidavit, police went to the house looking for a 9mm handgun, ammunition, a cell phone, and clothing with blood stains. Marsico said Battle was cooperative with police when he was arrested at the home. He was arraigned and placed in Dauphin County Prison without bail. A preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 29. — Gofundme accounts to help pay for Dearing and Harner’s funerals have been set up at https://www.gofundme.com/donations-for-kaliah and https://www.gofundme.com/natasha-harner-memorial-funds.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Harrisburg University is requesting proposals for the financing and development for a $140 million Health Science Education Center. University President Dr. Eric Darr says the project is a clear sign they plan on being a permanent fixture in Harrisburg. “We are here for the long haul,” said Darr. “We will bring more jobs to the city and help transform downtown.” Darr says they will solicit proposals to help fund and develop the project. The 36-story complex will accommodate housing for more than 300 students and offer degree programs in nursing, pharmaceutical sciences and other health programs. Darr says they plan on building at Third and Chestnut streets. The plan is to have at least 200,000 square feet of educational space that will include a hotel, restaurant, fitness facility and conference center. Darr says they hope to have their team in place by the spring, and they plan on breaking ground in 2019. If there are no major delays, they expect construction to be completed by 2021.

  • MoviePass offered in the MidstateMoviePass offered in the Midstate

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Monthly movie theater subscription service MoviePass is offered at nearly all theaters in the region. MoviePass costs $9.95 per month and subscribers can then watch one movie per day at any participating theater. Subscribers sign up online and are then mailed a debit card that is linked to the MoviePass app for smartphones. You can then go to the movies and once you’re within a certain distance of the theater, it activates the card, allowing you to purchase a ticket. The company says 90 percent of theaters accept the service, including an independently-owned movie theater, Midtown Cinema, in Harrisburg. “We’ve seen more people come through with MoviePass that we don’t typically see in theaters,” said Assistant Manager Samantha Melville. Although the company has been around since 2011, the price drop is recent. Melville says the service is not affecting ticket sales or concession prices, but hopes people will spend money on popcorn or a drink if they’re using the service. Not all theaters are happy about it. AMC Theaters calls the business model unsustainable and says it could eventually run theaters out of business. They believe moviegoers will get used to the lower prices and will be upset if that ever changes. There are few limits, such as no 3D movies, IMAX, or double viewings. You also need to install the MoviePass app on a smartphone. For a list of participating theaters visit, www.moviepass.com. Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go.

  • Safe Sleep campaign aims to stop infant deathsSafe Sleep campaign aims to stop infant deaths

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Since 2005, 31 infants have died from sleep-related causes in Dauphin County. Community leaders and area hospitals on Wednesday launched a campaign to make people aware of bedtime practices that can lead to infant death. “We will never know the names of the lives that we have saved, and you know what, that’s OK with me because I already know the names of the children we couldn’t save,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Sean McCormack said. Dauphin County Commissioners, the district attorney’s office, coroner’s office, and Children and Youth Services teamed up to educate parents about the safe way to put babies to bed and lower the chance of suffocation and sudden infant death syndrome. They want parents and caregivers to know their ABCs: Alone: Share your room – not your bed. Your baby needs to sleep alone for his or her safety. Back: Place your baby on his or her back in a safety-approved crib with a firm mattress. Do this even for the shortest nap. Crib: Your baby should sleep by himself or herself, meaning no bedding, bumpers, stuffed animals or anything else that could suffocate your baby. — Online: Dauphin County Safe Sleep Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go.
