State College councilwoman Theresa Lafer cracked a slight smile last month when she said she might be inclined to “shoot somebody,” but top borough leaders aren’t offering any punch lines over her public quip.

Lafer made the remark at a televised meeting February 11, when a contractor working at 131 Hiester Street went before council about a noise waiver. The councilwoman waved her hands to illustrate the path she preferred the concrete trucks follow.

After referring to the trucks as “ka-chunk ka-chunk” machines, Lafer said she “might have a small insane moment where I shoot somebody” if the trucks running near her home become too loud. About 25 concrete pours at the Hiester Street mixed-use project are scheduled to begin at 3 a.m. in March and continue through the next six months. (Click here to read more)
