BARRETT TOWNSHIP — State officials call it a rare move. By executive order, hunting and trapping are temporarily banned in seven townships in the Poconos as law enforcement continue to comb the woods for suspected killer Eric Frein.

Those townships are Price, Barrett, and Paradise in Monroe County and Blooming Grove, Greene, Porter, and Lehman in Pike County.

Officials believe it is just too dangerous for hunters to be in those woods with Frein still on the loose.

Frein is accused of gunning down and killing one trooper and wounding another.

“The individual that they’re looking for, Mr. Frein, probably has no regard for public or private land. I`ll assume that he`ll use any land available,” said game commission officer Bill Williams.

Deer archery season is scheduled to begin Saturday.

State police recently revealed they have discovered pipe bombs in their search area of the Pike and Monroe County border.

They recommended to the state game commission people be kept out of these woods.

“Here I am out here trying to get everything set up for the season and all of a sudden I find out I can`t go hunting on Saturday,” said Gene Besko of the Pine Lodge Sportsmans Association.

Game commissioners say hunters found in the banned area could get a verbal or written warning if they are there accidentally.

But if it’s clear they are defying the ban on purpose, there could be a citation and a fine of thousands of dollars.

Hunters we spoke with say they understand the precaution.

“If they would happen to stumble onto something and get hurt, you know, then we`d have another loss, an innocent victim,” said John Brown of Barrett Township.

Some sportsmen are preparing to hunt elsewhere.

“If they were going to cancel it, they should have coordinated it and canceled it in the beginning because it`s throwing a big curve into everybody`s idea of going out into the woods and going hunting,” Besko said.

SCRANTON — A family in Lackawanna County who lost a daughter in a car crash four years ago is among those receiving a settlement from American auto-maker General Motors.

SCRANTON — A family in Lackawanna County who lost a daughter in a car crash four years ago is among those receiving a settlement from American auto-maker General Motors.

General Motors has begun compensating the victims of crashes tied to faulty ignition switches in certain GM models after recalling those 2.6 million vehicles earlier this year.

Kelly Ruddy was only 21 years old when she lost her life in a deadly crash on Interstate 81 back in January 2010.

Kelly was driving north near the Bear Creek exit when she lost control of her 2005 Chevy Cobalt.

The car flipped. Kelly was thrown from the vehicle and struck by passing cars.

Her parents, Mary and Leo Ruddy have fought the vehicle manufacturer, General Motors, for the past four years and finally now GM has made a settlement with them for their daughter`s death.

But the Ruddy’s say this compensation is no victory.

“GM has taken our last surviving child, our hope, everything that we had and we have changed because of that,” said Mary Ruddy, who lost her oldest daughter to an illness shortly before Kelly died.

“It took us a whole four years. It was extremely difficult dealing with GM. They just set up road blocks and didn’t want to deal with us and give us any acknowledgment,” said Leo Ruddy.

General Motors is now admitting that a faulty ignition switch is responsible for numerous crashes and deaths across the nation.

The company has since recalled 2.6 million vehicles, including those Cobalts earlier this year, saying the faulty ignition switch can cause the engine to shut off, turning off the car’s safety features including air bags.

“It`s ten years too late, they should have did something back in 2004 when they knew about it , our daughter would still be here and still would God knows how many other people,” said Leo.

GM has admitted that people within the company knew for years the switches were faulty but failed to fix the problem.

“It would have cost 57 cents to correct the faulty ignition but they had a cost culture, they were concerned about saving pennies,” said the Ruddy’s attorney, Larry Moran.

“The pittance, the amount that was the difference between Kelly being here and Kelly not being here and the fact that they had known for so many years,” said Mary.

Under the settlement agreement with General Motors the compensation amount received by the Ruddy`s cannot be released.

MILLVILLE — Summer vacation is finally over for students in part of Columbia County.

Students and teachers in the Millville Area School District returned to school Wednesday after a teachers strike that lasted nearly a month.

Teachers had to quit the picket line in order to get in the required 180 days of school before June 30th, but they are still at odds over a contract.

A representative for the teachers union said the next step is to try to settle the contract dispute with arbitration.

According to the district’s website the only days students will have off are Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Memorial Day.

On Tuesday, Newswatch 16 spoke to students who were ready to get back into the classroom.

BARRETT TOWNSHIP — One day after authorities say they found explosives in the woods where they are searching for accused cop killer Eric Frein, the Pennsylvania Game Commission decides to ban hunting in the search area.

The game commission issued an order Wednesday to ban hunting and trapping in seven townships in the Poconos where the search continues for the person who is wanted for killing a state trooper in Pike County.

Gene Besko hasn’t stopped into his hunting cabin in the Poconos since the manhunt for Eric Frein began last month, and now that Besko is finally in to get the grounds ready for Saturday’s archery season, the Pennsylvania Game Commission changed its mind, and decided to put a hold on hunting.

“If they were going to cancel it, they should have coordinated it and canceled it in the beginning, because it’s throwing a big curve into everybody’s idea of going out into the woods and going hunting,” Besko said.

The Pine Lodge Sportsman’s Association’s cabin sits on about 450 acres of private land deep into the woods near Skytop, near the Pike and Monroe county line where state police have been looking for Eric Frein,

Surveyors got back to work trying to map the land, after the 19-day manhunt for Frein kept them away.

“We can’t operate with fear in our minds, just going to try and go out there and get the job done and leave the rest of the work to the local law enforcement,” said Peter Rafalko of George Dunda Surveying.

Besko checked some of his trails and put up some of his cameras, ready to take photos of wildlife, or capture one of the FBI’s top ten most wanted men.

“Pulled them in just before this happened to put new batteries in and get them straightened out, went to put them back out and I haven’t been able to get them back out since,” Besko said.

State police have said Frein could be hiding in a number of hunting cabins all throughout the Poconos, but members of the Pine Lodge Hunting Club say they have theirs secure from the inside out.

Inside the hunting lodge, windows are boarded up.

Just a few miles to the south along Route 447, troopers surrounded Alpine Mountain Ski Resort, still actively looking for the man they believed killed a state trooper in Pike County last month, or any other pipe bombs or traps he may have left behind.

Bow hunters like Besko now are prepared to hunt elsewhere, while some agree keeping people out of these woods where pipe bombs have been found is a good idea.

“If they would happen to stumble onto something and get hurt, you know, then we’d have another loss, an innocent victim,” said John Brown.

Bow season hunters can hit the woods in Pennsylvania elsewhere, but until further notice, the only people allowed to use weapons of any kind in these woods are law enforcement looking for Eric Frein.

WILLIAMSPORT — Student-painted murals left in storage for nearly 25 years have now been restored.

A worker wiped down glass that covers a painting in the hallway at Curtin Intermediate School in Williamsport.

“We just a few months ago finished putting the murals up on the wall,” said James Dougherty, organizer.

Students walking to lunch pass by the murals that were recently put back up on the walls.

“I think they are really cool and I’m just really interested in them,” said Alexandria Chillson, a student at Curtin Intermediate School.

The murals were painted by staff and students at the school in the 1930s.

“I was here as a student when they were on the wall,” said Dougherty.

There are 46 paintings in all. Each depicts a different scene from the poem, “The Song of Hiawatha.”

Dougherty said the murals hung on the walls when he started teaching at the school, but were taken down during a renovation project in the 1980s.

“These murals were taken and placed in storage where they remained for 15 years,” said Dougherty.

Nearly 11 years ago Dougherty and another former teacher decided the paintings should be brought back out.

“After being displayed for 50 years they were in pretty rough shape,” he said.

Dougherty said when the project started the community was right there to help pay for the restoration project. Once it was complete they had received nearly $50,000 from the community.

“All of the work to do the work was volunteer with the exception of renovating the paintings,” said Dougherty.

Dougherty says it took a former art teacher six summers to restore the paintings, but now that it’s complete, school administrators say they plan to use them in art and history classes.

“They have the opportunity to get into those projects and into the Native American culture and history,” said Williams Rathjen, assistant principal.

The community is welcome to check out the murals during a dedication service at the school in Williamsport.

SCRANTON — The first step in the mayor of Scranton’s plan to fix the city’s finances failed when a tax on commuters was struck down by a judge Tuesday.

That leaves the mayor with a tough predicament: finding a new way to fill a $15 million hole in Scranton’s pension fund.

Mayor Bill Courtright’s plan involved using a specific state law to tax commuters to make up for the deficit in the pension fund, but that part of the plan backfired with the court decision.

We asked the mayor what his plan is now. He didn’t say specifically if it would mean additional tax hikes for city residents, but residents hope the cost doesn’t fall on them now.

The first of Scranton’s financial problems to tackle is getting the pension funds for all four city unions out of the red.

Mayor Courtright’s original plan failed when a judge struck down an already approved commuter tax. Now, the mayor has to come up with another way to make up a $15 million deficit.

“Severe implications, I think you saw where they said there was two and a half years left on the fire pension, maybe four to five years left on the police pension. So, it’s an emergency, we are in emergency mode here. We’ve got to get it fixed,” said Mayor Courtright.

The mayor says city officials may find another way to place a wage tax on commuters or appeal the judge’s decision to strike down the city’s most recent attempt.

“There’s other options out there. We knew from day one that even this option wasn’t something that everybody wanted. We knew there was going to be pain. We’re trying to spread it as evenly as possible. We’re going to look at what other options are out there.”

The mayor wouldn’t say if any of those options include levying any other taxes on city residents.

Earlier this week, Scranton’s solicitor told Newswatch 16 that the mayor’s cabinet does not support passing a wage tax hike onto city residents since they already pay 3.4 percent of their annual income, one of the highest wage taxes in the state.

“I already pay enough of my income every year. The city takes more than the state,” Luke Anto.

“Any kind of tax right now is going to hurt. It’s really going to hurt everybody I think, especially the businesses down here,” said Scranton resident Jim McNally.

Mayor Courtright told us the city pension funds are only years away from running out of money. The city is obligated by law to pay pensions.

The mayor also told us that he has been in discussions with union leaders about the state of the pension funds but wouldn’t tell us what was discussed.
