According to Palmer, Justin Conner, 29, faces a parole vio- lation, as well as a charge of felon in possession of a firearm after officers responded to 75 Brookhaven Road at 9:45 a.m. “It appears to be an accidental discharge of a firearm,” Pa l m e r explained, adding that Conner was the only person to suffer injuries. Palmer said Conner was being taken to the North Central Re- gional Jail and had yet to be arraigned as of Sunday evening. No further details were avail- able as of press time. Deputy says it was likely an accident Easter attire Churchgoers don Sunday best The Dominion Post For many, Easter is all about getting up early in the morning and rushing down- stairs, praying that the Easter Bunny delivered a basket full of chocolate, or even a new fishing pole. And for some it may spark a memory — a memory of time spent with family and remem- bering things they did for us. “My mom would always make our Easter dresses,” said Beth Johnson, a supportive pas- tor’s wife of Suncrest United Methodist Church, on Sunday. The sight of little ones in Easter attire is just one sign that spring is here, and with it, changing weather. Eric Leister, of AccuWeather, said a new weather pattern will bring above-normal tempera- tures this week, reaching into the low 70s, with rain. For today, expect a high of 67, with rain developing overnight into Tuesday. Health law zaps, or boosts, tax refunds Associated Press WASHINGTON — As the April 15 tax deadline nears, peo- ple who got help paying for health insurance under Pres- ident Barack Obama’s law are seeing the direct effect on their refunds — hundreds of dollars, for better or worse. The law offers tax credits so people without access to job- based health insurance can buy private coverage. Because these subsidies are tied to income, consumers must accurately es- timate what they will make for the coming year. T hat’s been a challenge for millions of people. Guess on the low side, get more help now with premiums, but owe money later at filing time. Over- estimate income, expect bucks back from the taxman. Many consumers may not have understood that is how it works when they signed up. Some experts caution that such complications could discourage uninsured peo- ple from getting covered. Rob Tuck of Dublin, Calif., said he had anticipated a refund of about $400 on his 2014 taxes. But that almost has been wiped out because he had to repay some of the subsidy. He changed jobs during the year, and his income went up a little. Tuck, who works for a San Francisco-area tech-support company, said he enrolled to avoid tax penalties for being uninsured, but feels penalized anyway now. “I was expecting to get dinged a little bit, but I was actually kind of surprised when it came down that much,” he said. Kelsey Park started out 2014 in Dallas, earning good com- missions by selling wedding gowns. She left for graduate school at the University of Al- abama, and signed up for cov- erage through the law.

The expectation-shatter- ing sum is a studio and fran- chise best for the home- grown car-obsessed series, which has continued to grow over the past few films. The mega-opening for “Furious 7,” now the ninth- biggest opening of all time, was at least partly tied to audience interest in star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in November 2013 before the film was com- pleted. Production on “Fu- rious 7” was halted while the filmmakers and Univer- sal decided whether to pro- ceed with the film. Hearing set in suits vs. WVU prof BY DAVID BEARD The Dominion Post A Tuesday hearing will deter- mine the course of three sexual harassment lawsuits and one racial discrimination suit filed against WVU neurosurgery chairman Dr. Charles Rosen. The cases have been consol- idated, but Monongalia County Circuit Court Judge Russell Clawges Jr. will hear arguments for and against separating out the discrimination case at Tuesday’s hearing, plaintiffs’ attorney Sean Cook said Friday. Rosen is chairman of WVU’s neurosurgery department. He, WVU Hospitals and WVU’s Board of Governors (WVU BOG) are defendants. Former licensed practical nurse Angela Maset filed her sexual ha- rassment suit in June. She alleges that Rosen created a sexually hos- tile work environment that includ- ed offensive sexual jokes, stories and comments; sexual flirtation; and statements containing graphic sexual content.
