It’s wonderful, because it’s a great opportunity to meet women who are involved in the community on so many levels,” said Women’s League Network member Brigid Khuri. “They’re usually doing great in their jobs, and it’s awesome to hear about their experiences and how they got to where they are. And of course, it’s a great window into volunteer work, such as being here in the Pennsylvania Food Bank.” The side dishes were enough to feed a couple hundred people.

    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.”

  • Suicides up 23 percent this year in York CountySuicides up 23 percent this year in York County

    YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – The York County coroner reports suicides are up 23 percent from this time last year. It’s the second leading cause of death in the county behind drug overdoses. “He was always there to help somebody who was hurting,” said Bruce Bartz, a retired Hellam Township police officer. Bruce Bartz’s son, U.S. Army Cpl. Trent Bartz, stood six feet two inches tall. His heart matched his height. “He was all about his friends and taking care of his battle buddies out in the field too,” Bartz said. “He just had the biggest heart. The problem was I don’t think he took care of himself.” Cpl. Bartz showed some signs of depression as a child, but his father thought he was okay. “I came home, and I found Trent in the laundry room of our house,” Bartz said. The 20-year-old had taken his own life. “Some of our adult males who complete suicide have a military background,” York County Coroner Pam Gay said. Gay has seen 78 suicide deaths this year. 63 people had taken their own life at this time last year. The county had 70 suicides in all of 2016 and 67 in 2015. Gay thinks more people are dealing with mental health issues and are getting better at hiding it. “They’re not open with people, and they can hide it,” Gay said. “They can hide their depression, or they can hide what’s really going on in their life. They go to work every day.” Those at Suicide Prevention of York say if you suspect a loved one is suicidal, talk to him or her about it. Seek out treatment from a mental health provider or counselor if needed. “Most people that die by suicide don’t want to die. They really just want the pain to end, and they just want people to listen to them,” said Cindy Richard, founder of Suicide Prevention of York. Richard says signs of being suicidal can vary by age. “An adult might not want to go to work and use up all their sick time,” Richard said. “A child may start getting bad grades in school.” Bartz has a message for those who may suspect someone they know has suicidal thoughts. “This is a conversation that needs to be had, and we can’t hide how people are feeling. We want to make it comfortable for people that are hurting to come out, talk about this, and be able to get the help that they need.” Bartz founded a group in his son’s honor. Bartz Brigade raises money to help with suicide prevention and education in York County. Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go.

    LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – It’s not every day that you see a T-Rex jamming to music played by a one man band in downtown Lancaster, but that was the case during a festive atmosphere for the Extraordinary Give on Friday. “There are give days that happen across the nation and this give day gives about five times per capita more than the average give day,” Tracy Cutler, who is with the Lancaster County Community Fund, and one of the organizers of the Extraordinary Give, said. “We believe one of the things is about people coming together.” In it’s history, the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $22 million for organizations in the Midstate. This year more than 400 organizations took part in the event that’s billed as the largest day of online giving in the Midstate. Most of the giving took place online, but the day brings out organizations who are looking to draw attention to their cause. Some organizations get creative. The Clinic for Special Children, which helps Amish and Mennonite children with genetic diseases, had a corn hole game set up in front of their table. Every dollar of the money raised goes to different organizations in the Midstate. The Lancaster County Children’s Alliance, which investigates allegations of abuse, said they’re seeing more cases and that’s why the Extraordinary Give is important to them. “Our services are free. We provide so it not only helps the services we provide, but we’ve also outgrown our space,” Karen Melton, a forensic investigator with the alliance, told ABC 27 News.
