Wolf reports $414K in 2017 income

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf reported about $414,000 in adjusted gross income in 2017 and nearly $1.3 million in charitable donations in a federal tax return that his campaign made available for review by The Associated Press on Friday.

Wolf made the two-page 1040 form public and allowed a reporter to review the rest of his 102-page federal tax return in a campaign office, following rules he set in 2014 when he was running for a first term.

Wolf, 69, is seeking a second four-year term in the Nov. 6 general election.

Wolf’s 2017 adjusted gross income includes $188,000 in salary, over $200,000 in investment income and a $23,000 tax refund. It does not include another $57,000 in tax-exempt interest.

He reported $266,000 in cash gifts to charity — which includes his salary, according to records provided by Wolf’s campaign Friday — and another $1 million in securities donated to Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, where his wife Frances is a trustee.


Woman killed; two hurt in crash

Authorities said a head-on crash on an interstate highway in western Pennsylvania has left a woman dead and two other people injured.

The crash occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 79 in North Strabane.

State police said a man driving a southbound pickup truck crossed a grassy median and entered the northbound lanes, where he collided with an SUV and then hit a car head-on.

The car’s driver, 59-year-old Esther Bernice Davis of Canonsburg, was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. The drivers of the pickup and the SUV suffered undisclosed injuries and were being treated at hospitals.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
