    Tom Brady’s ban lifted by judge

    NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge deflated “Deflategate” Thursday, erasing New England quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for a controversy that the NFL claimed threatened football’s integrity. U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell went too far in affirming punishment of the Super Bowl winning quarterback. Brady has insisted he played no role in a conspiracy to deflate footballs below the allowable limit at last season’s AFC championship game. The written decision frees Brady to prepare for the Sept. 10 season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The ruling was a surprise to some legal experts who believed Berman was merely pressuring the league to settle when he criticized its handling…

DUI Moving Memorial comes to Danville

DANVILLE – With Labor Day approaching on Monday, the Pennsylvania DUI Association is warning motorists about the importance of a designated driver.  The DUI Victim’s Moving Memorial made a stop at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville today and features the names of Pennsylvanians killed by impaired drivers.   Montour County District Attorney Rebecca Warren says they need to strengthen the state’s DUI laws, “The DUI laws allow you to wipe your slate clean after every 10 years, and they are only misdemeanor DUI’s no matter what the circumstances are.  Contrast that to retail theft, where on your third offense, it’s an automatic felony no matter what the price was of the item that you have…
