Local Ties To #1 Virginia Cavaliers Baseball Team

The Cavaliers baseball team warms up inside Davenport Field on the campus of the University of Virginia. It’s the beginning of another tough three game series with ACC opponent north Carolina. Only the best ball players come here to play-and that includes 1st team All-American Mike Papi from Tunkhannock and freshman of the year in 2013 Joe McCarthy from Scranton.

“Why obviously there’s a reason you came here to play baseball. Games like that make it worth the while? I mean we come out, we have 5,000 fans behind us-the atmosphere is just amazing. Nothing like it, and on top of that the coaches here and my teammates I’m surrounded with this experience. Once in a lifetime and it’s great,” said Joe McCarthy.

Decapitated Birds Found Outside Brodheadsville Church

BRODHEADSVILLE – It was a gruesome find for workers at a church in Brodheadsville. Decapitated birds stuffed in plastic bags were placed by two doors outside the Zion United Lutheran Church along Route 209.

Easter flowers bloom outside the Zion United Lutheran Church in Brodheadsville just feet away from where workers stumbled across a disturbing find.

Church secretary Margaret Seligman says she and a cleaning worker stumbled upon a plastic bag of decapitated birds last week just off Route 209.

“Yeah, it was very strange and we were both just disgusted. Why would anybody do that, why would they leave it here?” asked Margaret Seligman.

They called state police, not knowing just around the church near the front door was yet another bag of birds.

“I walked around the building and found another bag in the very front of the church, wedged between the siding and the bench that’s in the front,” said Seligman.

Police Collar Arson Suspect In Bank

STROUDSBURG — An arson suspect wanted by police in Monroe County was picked up inside a bank Wednesday.

Police believe Thomas Giarrizzo set a fire around 10 p.m. Tuesday inside an apartment house on West Main Street in Stroudsburg.

“I don’t know anything about it.”

Thomas Giarrizzo claimed he had no idea why he was being brought in to a magistrate’s office in Stroudsburg but police say he lit his apartment house on fire late Tuesday night while his neighbors were inside.

“We had actually received a call from Thomas here last night about two hours prior to the fire call, complaining that he thought his neighbors were after him,” said Stroud Area Regional Police Cpl. Kenneth Nevil.

According to police, Giarrizzo pointed a gun and told his neighbors to “stay inside and not come out.”
