Pennsylvania is one step closer to statewide rules for testing self-driving cars. On Friday, 10 state senators introduced a bill to create those rules.

Like a lot of smaller breweries, East End Brewing Co. in Larimer doesn't have its own canning line. To get beer out to customers, East End calls in a mobile canning company, which brings its own equipment to the brewery. The Incline watched as Iron Heart Canning recently canned East End's Big Hop and Bigger Hop beers. Fair warning: You will want a cold IPA after watching the video.
Attendees of the now-regular Tuesdays With Toomey protests in Pittsburgh will have a new location next week. Sen.

The best players should make the most money. The Steelers have three of the best players in the entire NFL. They’re all about to make a ton of money in 2017. On Monday, Antonio Brown signed a four-year extension, and Le'Veon Bell was given an exclusive franchise tag Monday. This year's salary cap is projected to be $168 million — that’s high — but that would mean the Steelers will have as much as $43.8 million set aside for just three offensive players.
