AP Headlines, and Scoreboard for Sunday October 21, 2018

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania will place cameras in highway construction work zones as part of a pilot program to discourage speeding and improve safety.  Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf on Friday signed the law that calls for cameras to record driver’s licenses of anyone going more than 11 miles per hour above the limit while workers are present.

Violators will get a written warning the first time, followed by fines of $75 and $150 for subsequent offenses.

The five-year pilot program involves the Transportation Department and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. There will be signs indicating where cameras are in use.  Interstate work zone crashes increased from about 600 to nearly 1,000 over a recent four-year period.  The law also allows a five-year speed camera pilot program on a section of Roosevelt Boulevard in Philadelphia.

 

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Dozens of beagles rescued from a home in rural Pennsylvania are finding new owners and new homes.   The Lehigh County Humane Society received thousands of inquiries and began accepting adoption applications Thursday.  The dogs were rescued this month from a home outside Allentown where a woman had been breeding them without a license before she died last month.

Adoptions were to continue Friday.  The Allentown Morning Call reports the man who owned the house where the dogs were kept has received three citations for animal neglect.  It also reports he was cited Tuesday by the state agriculture department for operating an unlicensed kennel and failing to show proof the dogs were immunized against rabies.

 

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia songwriter who claims he was cut out of profits and credit from song that was recorded by R&B star Usher has been awarded more than $44 million in damages in a suit that targeted the track’s other co-writers.  A jury last week awarded the sum to Daniel Marino. His former co-writer William Guice was ordered to pay $6.75 million in compensatory damages, and $20.25 million in punitive damages.

Also last week Destro Music Productions, owned by co-defendant Dante Barton, agreed to pay Marino $17.35 million. That brings his total award to $44.35 million.  The lawsuit stemmed from Marino’s work on a song called “Club Girl.” Marino says he created most of the song, including its guitar hook, tempo and chord progression.  The song was recorded by Usher in 2004 and renamed “Bad Girl.”  Usher wasn’t named in the suit.
