Investigators find a wallet with identification in it near where the skeletal remains were discovered Saturday.
The human remains found along a wooded area of Dutilh Road in Cranberry over the weekend may be those of a Beaver County man reported missing in July, investigators said. Sgt. Chuck Mascellino said police would not release the name of the man, who is believed to be in his 40s, until a positive identification is made on the remains. “We have a tentative idea of who it is,” Mascellino said. Investigators found a wallet with identification in it near where the skeletal remains were discovered Saturday across from Dutilh United Methodist Church, Mascellino said. Police were called to the area at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday after a man walking from UPMC Passavant Cranberry to the Cranberry Mall saw the remains and dialed 9-1-1. Mascellino said a…

No one is injured in the fire on Anna Marie Drive.
No one was injured in a fire that heavily damaged a Cranberry Township home at about 1 a.m. Sunday. Fire Chief Brian Kovac said the fire at 441 Anna Marie Drive started at the rear of the residence. "The fire started on the back deck from a recreational fire and the propane from the gas grill was blowing fire into the house, allowing the fire to spread quickly," he said. Firefighters used a hose positioned at the top of the company’s tower ladder truck to help douse the flames once the fire extended into the roof of the building. Kovac said volunteers had the fire under control in about 35 minutes. The homeowners made it from the building safely, he said. Neighbors Dan and Dorsi Pugh, who own the home next door, said Alex and Lisa Kumnik …

After losing the Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Republican primaries to Mitt Romney, Santorum speaks to supporters in the Cranberry area.
After losing the Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington, D.C. primaries to Mitt Romney, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum looked to the future as he addressed the crowd gathered Tuesday for an election party in the Cranberry area. Repeatedly telling supporters they “know him,” the former U.S. senator, who grew up about 22 miles away in Butler, vowed to continue his campaign and to win his home state of Pennsylvania in the April 24 primary. “We’re hitting the field. The clock starts tonight,” he said. “We’ve got three weeks to go out here in Pennsylvania and win this state, and after winning this state, the field looks a little different in May.” Romney's wins Tuesday put him past the halfway mark to the 1,144 delegates needed to …

New Cranberry restaurant is sure to be a favorite.
