Hundreds experience solar eclipse together at St. Vincent viewing party
By Amy Fauth
Bulletin Staff Writer


Hundreds of people flocking to St. Vincent College (SVC) on an August afternoon isn’t a rare occurrence, but Monday, it wasn’t the Pittsburgh Steelers who lured families out to the Unity Township campus. It was something that hasn’t been seen in the region in more than 45 years — a solar eclipse.

The college hosted a solar eclipse viewing party in front of the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion, during which approximately 650 people witnessed the moon moving directly between the Earth and the sun, according to Dr. John Smetanka, vice president for academic affairs, academic dean and associate professor of physics.

Motorcycle passenger killed in HT crash
A Lemont Furnace woman was killed Sunday night when the motorcycle on which she was a passenger struck a pickup truck at a Hempfield Township intersection.

According to state police at Greensburg, Lisa Ozanick, 34, was a passenger on a 2010 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle driven by Justin Smith, 26, of Smithton. Around 9:10 p.m., the motorcycle was traveling west on Bridge Street in Hempfield Township approaching its intersection with New Stanton Ruffsdale Road when a 2006 Honda Ridgeline driven north on New Stanton Ruffsdale Road by Dale Moore, 52, of Ruffsdale, entered the intersection in the motorcycle’s path.
