A Lansford man suspected of harassing and threatening a Nesquehoning woman with a fake bomb has been caught in York County.

Nesquehoning Police Chief Sean Smith said his department received a tip yesterday that John Robert Large, 49, was at a York County hospital.

Nesquehoning Officer Timothy Wuttke contacted York police, who went to the hospital to get Large.

Large assaulted several hospital staff when he learned he would be taken into custody, Smith said.

Although Large ran, York police caught him.

TV newscasters have lately been accusing certain Americans of being "wusses" and "wimps." This name-calling attitude started when a high school ordered its students to stop wearing T-shirts or sweatshirts with the name of the college they plan to attend.

Apparently, seniors who found out that they were accepted at Harvard or Yale or another well-respected school were going online and purchasing shirts from their "soon-to-be" place of education and wearing those shirts to class.

On July 25, 2012, Taliban fighters in Kunar province in Afghanistan successfully targeted an American Army CH-47 helicopter with a new generation Stinger missile. The American pilot was able to nurse the crippled craft to the ground in a hard landing.

The next day, an explosive ordnance disposal team found one fragment that contained an entire serial number and the Stinger tracked back to a lot that had been recently signed out by the CIA.

Whenever we go to Maine I usually make a pilgrimage to a number of favorite places, such as the Portland Head Light (my favorite place) and L.L. Bean's in Freeport.

I also make an annual pilgrimage to the Old Port in downtown Portland, where I always visit the Stonewall Kitchen Company Store.

I make a lot of my own jams and jellies, but there are some that they offer that I just can't reproduce.

They also have delicious salsas and sauces, not to mention a host of kitchen and cooking-related items.
