Woman Goes Missing in Pottsville

Emergency responders spent part of the morning New Years Day looking for an elderly city woman. Pottsville police reported that 79 year old Dolores Rose walked away from her home in the 22-hundred block of Mahantongo Street around 7:30am. Authorities say Rose suffered from advanced dementia. Thankfully, the woman was found safe and sound around noontime yesterday, not far from her home.

Polar Bear Plunge

The mild temperatures lured about 70 people to the 3rd annual Pine Creek Polar Bear Plunge near Valley View on New Years Day. The water temperature was in the 40's, almost the same temp as the outside air. Participants paid $20 dollars to take part, to support the local trout nursery. They also received a free Pork and Sauerkraut dinner to ring in the new year!
