HUGHESVILLE — Three incoming Hughesville High School seniors had a productive summer. They built an outdoor classroom for students at Ashkar Elementary.

The project was part of a youth leadership program. The students got a grant to pay for it all.

Ashkar students appreciate the help.

“I think it makes you learn better, because you’re getting fresh air and you’re clearing your mind,” said Austin McKeon.

“I would have loved to be outside. I remember we used to try to get the teachers to take us but there’s nowhere really to go. Now, the students at the school have someplace to go to be outside and learn,” said Benjamin Nesselrod.

Parents and a landscaper helped the high schoolers complete their project in Lycoming County.

HAZLETON — Police and the Luzerne County coroner’s office are trying to learn what led to an apparent murder-suicide.  Two bodies were discovered Sunday night in a home on Penn Court.

Police were called just after 8 p.m. Sunday, after a report of a couple found “unresponsive.” Officers found a man and a woman dead.

Neighbors say this is where Wayne and Michelle Volciak lived, and the county coroner says this where they died.

Jessica Smith was their neighbor for four years.

“They were really nice people. They seemed so normal. Family picnics, they seemed so happy and normal,” Smith said.

Smith says Wayne, a former state employee, will be remembered for his lawn and garden skills, the way he kept his property neat and clean, plus his love of polka music.

Michelle had a cake baking business, called “Michelle’s Creative Cakes.” Some of her work was on her web site and Smith said she recently had a chance to sample one of Jessica’s cakes.

“They were excellent,” said Smith. “Michelle made them. Pudding icing, just made one for my mom’s 70th birthday. They were really nice, awesome people.”

The coroner tells us they believe Wayne shot Michelle.

Smith says there was never a sign of trouble here, so what happened was clearly a shock.

HALLSTEAD — Maloney’s Pub and Restaurant is closed after a driver lost control and crashed into the bar early Sunday morning.

State police said Rebecca Collins of Susquehanna lost control of her car while driving on Route 11 in Hallstead.

She ended up coming to a stop when she crashed into the bar area of Maloney’s, even dragging a Route 11 sign inside the bar.

“Luckily we were closed. It happened around 3:30 in the morning so nobody was sitting at this at end of the bar, or they would have been killed,” said Dennis Maloney, the owner of the restaurant and pub.

“It’s a mess. There’s a lot of damage. If there were people in there, there probably would have been serious injuries or death even. It was right down the line where the people sit,” said Walter Welch of Hallstead, who heard the crash happen.

Now the restaurant is boarded up and people in Hallstead can’t believe what happened.

“At 10 o’clock this town is like dead and just to hear that, it’s crazy,” said Ernie Kuhn of Hallstead.

“The food is delicious, the service is always great, the bartenders are fantastic, I love that place,” said Daren Lucas of Langhorne.

The crash caused Maloney’s to close for labor day weekend, a holiday where the owner said  the bar would normally be packed.

“We can’t do anything, it’s a holiday weekend. I can’t do anything until the insurance company comes,” said Maloney.

The owner of Maloney’s said he’s not sure how long the pub and restaurant will be closed for, but he said he wants to open up as soon as possible, since most of his employees have kids.

“Hopefully I can get the kitchen done and use the dining room,” said Maloney.

Kuhn hopes the pub can re-open soon, he recently applied for a bartender position at Maloney’s.

“It’s been around for a while, a good 20 years so he’ll probably fix it up, i’d imagine it will be running again soon,” said Kuhn.

Lucas said the restaurant is his favorite place to go during hunting season.

“It’s one of my favorite places to eat. My wife’s going to be devastated. Hopefully they open up fairly soon,” said Lucas.

State police said they will continue to investigate the crash.

OLD FORGE — A boy who started seventh grade just days ago is dead, and his father was seriously injured in a crash Saturday night on South Keyser Avenue in Old Forge.

Police said Leonard Zupon Jr. died early Sunday morning after the Mustang driven by his father, Leonard Zupon Sr., collided with another vehicle.

Police said the father and son were not wearing seat belts.

Investigators said David Turano of Carbondale was making a left turn into the Diamond Club when the crash happened. Police said Turano ran from the scene and was captured a few blocks away in Taylor.

Turano was taken to the hospital and had blood taken as part of the investigation to determine if he was intoxicated.

The boy, 12, known as Lenny, had started seventh grade just a few days earlier at All Saints Academy in Scranton where his mother, Mary Jane Zupon, worked as a secretary. She also spent more than a decade working at Newswatch 16, where she made many friends.

A classmate remembered Lenny as a friend with a sparkling sense of humor and a love of pizza.

“He was friends with everybody and it’s not going to be the same without him. I know that,” Joseph Hazzouri said.

The pastor of St. Patrick’s Church remembered the boy as an altar server who often looked like he had just got out of bed, but was always dependable.

“I just found out a little while ago. I am just heartbroken for the whole family. He was one of my buddies as a server, so we are really going to miss him,” said Fr. Martin Boylan.

No charges have been filed in the case. Police said they are waiting for the results of Turano’s blood test, which are expected to take about a week.

The area of South Keyser Avenue in Old Forge where the crash happened will be closed to traffic from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Tuesday as police reconstruct the crash.

p September brings with it the beginning of the last major work stage of the Route 22 Toll Bridge rehabilitation project, according to officials with the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission./pp Information released Monday by the Commission indicated that a new split traffic pattern will be established overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. In the new pattern, Route 22 westbound traffic will be restricted to the right lane on the bridge's upstream side while eastbound traffic will be restricted to the right lane on the bridge's downstream side./pp The split, officials say, will result in a cordoned work area in the middle of the bridge where work crews will conduct the "last major elements" of the rehabilitation project. The rehabilitation began in the early summer of 2013./pp More information on the project and related restrictions and closures can be found at a href="http://www.drjtbc.org/default.aspx?pageid=2326" target="_blank"www.drjtbc.org/tollbridgerehab /a/pdiv class="feedflare" a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=piEBHf6g1CM:8zCm4u5sXsI:yIl2AUoC8zA"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=piEBHf6g1CM:8zCm4u5sXsI:bcOpcFrp8Mo"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=bcOpcFrp8Mo" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=piEBHf6g1CM:8zCm4u5sXsI:V_sGLiPBpWU"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?i=piEBHf6g1CM:8zCm4u5sXsI:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=piEBHf6g1CM:8zCm4u5sXsI:F7zBnMyn0Lo"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?i=piEBHf6g1CM:8zCm4u5sXsI:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=piEBHf6g1CM:8zCm4u5sXsI:qj6IDK7rITs"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"/img/a /divimg src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories/~4/piEBHf6g1CM" height="1" width="1"/
