Police dog euthanized after battling cancer
ALLENTOWN A veteran police dog in Allentown has
been euthanized after briefly returning to wo A amid a battle
with cancer.
Nine-year-old Ealko had his spleen removed due to a rup
tured tumor in October and was later able to return to work
with his handler.
But The Morning Call of Allentown reports the cancer
spread to his liver and elsewhere. The police department said
Thursday that the canine was euthanized at a veterinary cen
ter in Whitehall.
Ealko joined the department in 2003.
He was honored for chasing down and catching an armed
suspect last summer and also chasing down a hit-and-run sus
pect two years ago.
The department credits Ealko with more than 20 felony
apprehensions and hundreds of narcotic detections.
Man charged in Facebook threats
ALLENTOWN Federal authorities say an unemployed
amusement park worker in eastern Pennsylvania threatened
to carry out “the most heinous school shooting ever imag
The FBI says Bethlehem resident Anthony Elonis made
that threat and others on Eacebook after he was fired from
nearby Domey Park and Wildwood Kingdom in October.
Elonis was charged Thursday with interstate communica
tion of threats. He is in federal custody pending a bail hearing
on Monday.
Authorities say Elonis posted a threat Nov. 16 that said there
are “Enough elementary schools in a 10-mile radius to initiate
the most heinous school shooting ever imagined.”
It continued: “And hell hath no fury like a crazy man in a
Kindergarten class.”
The public defender’s office did not immediately return a
request for comment.

Though Newsome came to Penn
State with the reputation of being a
mobile quarterback that also had a
big arm, Clark said he doesn't see
the Lions ever using a two-quarter
back system.
Thus, Newsome’s decision to go
elsewhere would be based on the
fact of his position on the depth
chart or how open he’d be to a posi

SOCOOS was a leap of faith.
"He was sort of terrified about
stepping back into the classroom,"
Lee said.
He said Clemente revolutionized
the sociology department as its
head from 1983 to 1996, taking it
from mediocrity to a “nationally rec

But whether or not Bolden beats
