” Call it the case of the mysterious boom. Folks in the back mountain heard a loud rumble, some even saying it shook their home.
It takes a lot to wake up 12-year-old Kendra Steltz of Lake Township. “I was sleeping and all I heard was a big bang,” she said.
A big bang heard by more than just her. Many of you let Newswatch 16 know you heard the loud boom as well.

” Here in Pennsylvania, we have a full-time legislature, so as the lobbyist for the Pennsylvania affiliate of the ACLU, I have plenty of opportunities for face time with state legislators and staff. Since June, I’ve been hearing a similar refrain repeatedly: NSA surveillance is a major problem. We deal with a lot of state-level surveillance legislation, and I’ve joked with legislators and staff that Edward Snowden has made my job a lot easier.
Last week, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives formalized that concern by passing a resolution to protest the NSA’s sweeping surveillance activities and to call on Congress to create a special committee to investigate and to recommend revisions to the USA PATRIOT Act and for reforms at the NSA and the FBI. The vote on House Resolution 456 wasn’t even close.
The final tally: 194 to 2.”
