Woman cited for 911 misuse

NEW CASTLE — A woman looking for a ride has been charged with making false reports to law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

Pennsylvania state police said Geri Trimble, 51, of 109 Dryfuse Lane, Wampum, was arraigned before District Judge Jennifer Nicholson on the charges.

Police said between Dec. 1 and 4, Trimble made seven calls to the Lawrence County 911 Center reporting incidents that had not occurred.

Troopers said they had responded six times “in an emergency capacity,” but found that no crimes or incidents had occurred.

Following the final call, police said, Trimble admitted she had contacted 911 because she needed a ride to obtain medication and needed a ride to a friend’s house.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
