Death at Pennsylvania gas well blamed on human error, poor supervision

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 05:58
By David DeKok HARRISBURG Pa. (Reuters) - An explosion at a Chevron Corp gas well in southwestern Pennsylvania that killed a man in February was caused by an inexperienced contract worker who was improperly supervised, according to a state report released on Wednesday. Ian R. McKee, a 27-year-old native of Warren, Pennsylvania, was incinerated in the blast when he went to investigate the hissing sound of gas escaping at high pressure from the Lanco 7H well in Greene County, where he worked. The report by Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection blamed the Feb. 11, 2014, disaster on errors by an inexperienced worker - not McKee - and the supervisor who failed to make sure a lock pin was tightened properly. “We are reviewing the DEP reports,” said Kent S. Robertson, a spokesman for Chevron in San Ramon, California.

Tenn. mom charged with taking meth while pregnant going to rehab: officials

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 05:57
By Tim Ghianni NASHVILLE Tenn. (Reuters) - Tennessee prosecutors are temporarily delaying their pursuit of an assault charge against a woman for allegedly taking methamphetamine while she was pregnant, so they can see how she does in drug treatment, officials said on Wednesday. Mallory Loyola, 26, of Madisonville in eastern Tennessee, was the first woman arrested under the controversial new state law after both she and her newborn baby tested positive for the illegal drug last month, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Prosecutors plan to see how she does in treatment and then decide how to handle the assault charge, Stephen Crump, district attorney general, said on Wednesday.

U.S. should drop charges against USS Cole bombing suspect, defense says

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 05:56
By Lacey Johnson FORT MEADE Md. (Reuters) - The United States should drop charges against a Guantanamo Bay prisoner accused of masterminding the 2000 bombing of a U.S. warship off Yemen because the U.S. military planned similar attacks during World War Two, defense lawyers argued on Wednesday. Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi Arabian national of Yemeni descent, is charged with orchestrating a suicide bombing against the USS Cole using a boat filled with explosives in a Yemeni port. The video was produced by the U.S. Office of Strategic Services, a precursor of the Central Intelligence Agency. The United States cannot charge Nashiri for war crimes if it condones the use of concealed explosive boats as an acceptable form of naval warfare, said Air Force Captain Daphne Jackson, a defense attorney.

Range Resources faces fine over Pennsylvania fracking wastewater leak

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 05:45
By David DeKok HARRISBURG Pa. (Reuters) - Oil and gas producer Range Resources did not properly monitor leaks from a wastewater containment pond in Pennsylvania and the state has begun enforcement action that could lead to a fine, state officials said on Wednesday. A leak was detected earlier this year at the Yeager impoundment in Amwell Township in Washington County, in southwestern Pennsylvania, according to the Notice of Violation issued by the state Department of Environmental Protection on July 24. The pond contains a briny mixture of fluids, including drilling water that returns to the surface after fracking, the process that involves pumping chemical-laced water and sand underground to fracture rock to release oil or gas, said Range Resources spokesman Matt Pitzarella. "During its operation of the (pond), flow was often detected in the leak detection zone, but Range did not satisfy the permit's weekly chlorides testing requirements," the notice said.

This Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014 photo provided by Cindy White shows Bill White, right, an 81-year-old farmer at his family's farm near Switz City, Ind., two days after he became buried beneath corn in a grain bin at the southwestern Indiana farm.

To White's right are his 46-year-old son, Steve White; 24-year-old grandson, Jordan; 19-year-old grandson Jakeb, and farmhands Dave Dinn and Levi Fletcher. (AP Photo/Cindy White)INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An 81-year-old Indiana farmer survived the crushing grip of an avalanche of corn inside a grain bin in part because he's "10 times tougher than the average guy," one of his relieved sons said Wednesday.
