  • Servicemen killed in WWII to finally be buried in CaliforniaServicemen killed in WWII to finally be buried in California

    MANTECA, Calif. (AP) — Two U.S. servicemen whose remains were identified more than six decades after they were killed overseas during World War II will finally get funerals in their California hometowns. The Defense Department says Army Air Forces 1st Lt. Homer Spence and Marine Corps Reserve Assistant Cook Frank Masoni will be buried Saturday with military honors. Spence’s funeral is in Manteca, and the service for Masoni is in Gilroy. The plane Spence was piloting disappeared during a mission over southern Germany in July 1944. He was 22. The wreckage was found in 2010, and Spence’s remains were identified using DNA analysis. Masoni was killed in November 1943 during a battle with Japanese forces on an island in the Pacific Ocean. He was 21. His remains were identified using dental and other records.

  • Fire officials stress cooking safety during the holiday seasonFire officials stress cooking safety during the holiday season

    It’s one of the most delicious holidays of the year, but it can also be one of the most dangerous. Cooking fires in homes happen more often on Thanksgiving Day than any other day of the year. It’s a fact that fire officials say should not only be used as a warning, but also a reminder during the holiday season. “When you place the turkey in, it could overflow catching fire. If it gets too hot you can remove the top and fire could start just from the grease being emitted off the kettle,” says East Lansing Fire Capt. and PIO, Leo Allaire. It’s just one of the many cooking mishaps Capt. Allaire says families should keep in mind while making dinner during the holidays. “It can be very dangerous if you go on YouTube you can see videos of people actually doing this and it does cause a great deal of fire,” says Capt. Allaire. According to the National Fire Protection Association, out of 365 days a year, the Thanksgiving holiday sees the most home fires involving cooking equipment. In 2015 alone, firefighters across the country responded to more than 1,700 cooking fires just on Thanksgiving Day. Fire officials say much of that is due to someone walking away from a flame. That averages out to 4x the number of home fires that occur on any other day during the year. So what is a good recipe for cooking safety? Capt. Allaire says first and foremost, keep an eye on what you fry. “If for some reason it does catch on fire and get out of control do not put any water on it, that will only spread the fire,” says Capt. Allaire. Instead he says keep another pan or cookie sheet nearby to cover it with. And if you like to deep fry your turkey, make sure it’s away from the house, not on a deck or in a garage. That your bird completely. Do not overfill the oil, and make sure that oil does not become over-heated. “Don’t walk away and start watching the football game or lay down and take a nap because it’ll end up catching on fire, you’ll have a kitchen fire and you’ll end up seeing us,” says Capt. Allaire. By following these simple tasks, you can let firefighters have dinner with their families, and not yours.

  • University: Professor sexually harassed grad student on tripUniversity: Professor sexually harassed grad student on trip

    BOSTON (AP) — Boston University says it has found evidence that a geology professor sexually harassed a graduate student on a research trip in Antarctica more than 10 years ago. BU Provost Jean Morrison said in a letter sent Friday to faculty in the school’s Earth & Environment department that the findings follow a 13-month investigation into the former student’s allegations against David Marchant, which date back to 1999. Morrison said interviews or statements from more than 30 witnesses and a review of over 1,000 pages of records led investigators to conclude the tenured professor engaged in sexual harassment in violation of the school’s policies. Investigators found the harassment, which included derogatory sex-based slurs and sexual comments, created a hostile working and living environment for the woman at the camp in Antarctica, the letter said. Morrison said the investigation didn’t find credible evidence to support claims that Marchant physically attacked the woman and inflicted other types of psychological and physical abuse. Marchant’s attorney told The Boston Globe he plans to appeal the investigation’s finding. If unsuccessful, the school said Marchant could be terminated. “Dr. Marchant is extremely disappointed in the findings and continues to maintain that he did not engage in any sexually harassing behavior in 1999 or at another time,” said attorney Jeffrey Sankey. The newspaper reported that former students have defended Marchant since the allegations were made public, saying they never witnessed him treating woman inappropriately.

  • Argentina steps up search for missing submarine with 44 crewArgentina steps up search for missing submarine with 44 crew

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Argentina’s Navy said Saturday it was ramping up the search for a submarine that hadn’t been heard from in three days, and at least six other nations said they would join in the effort. Navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said that the area being searched off the country’s southern Atlantic coast has been doubled as concerns about the 44 crew members grew. “We are not discounting any hypothesis,” Balbi said. Possibilities could include “a problem with communications” or with its power system, he said. Authorities last had contact with the German-built diesel-electric sub, the ARA San Juan, on Wednesday as it was on a voyage from the extreme southern port of Ushuaia to Mar del Plata. President Mauricio Macri said in a tweet that the country will use “all resources national and international that are necessary to find the submarine.” Pledges of help came from Chile, Uruguay, Peru and Brazil, as well as the United States, which sent a NASA scientific aircraft and a Navy plane. Britain was sending a polar exploration vessel, the HMS Protector, which British officials said should arrive Sunday. Admiral Gabriel Gonzalez, chief of the Mar del Plata Naval Base, said authorities have reinforced both the surface search for the missing submarine and the underwater search. There is “coordination with units from the United Kingdom and the United States,” he said. Britain and Argentina fought a war in 1982 over the Falklands Islands, which are called the Malvinas in Argentina. Relatives of the crew members gathered at the Mar del Plata Naval Base in the hopes of hearing news about their loved ones. “We feel anguish. We are reserved but will not lose our hope that they will return,” Marcela Moyano, wife of machinist Hernan Rodriguez, told television network TN. From the Vatican, Argentine Pope Francis said he was making “fervent prayers” for the crew.

  • Attorney: Ex-Oklahoma senator to plead to child sex chargeAttorney: Ex-Oklahoma senator to plead to child sex charge

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The attorney for a former state senator charged with producing and transporting child pornography says his client will plead guilty to one count of child sex trafficking in exchange for U.S. prosecutors dropping three other child pornography charges against him. Ex-state Sen. Ralph Shortey’s attorney Ed Blau confirmed the details of the plea agreement to The Oklahoman on Friday. Blau told the newspaper Shortey wants to put the “painful and humiliating ordeal behind him.” The 35-year-old married father of four resigned in March after being charged in state court with child prostitution after police say they found him in a hotel with a 17-year-old boy. Shortey still faces between 10 years and life in prison if convicted of child sex trafficking. ___ Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com

  • US general says nuclear launch order can be refusedUS general says nuclear launch order can be refused

    HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) — The top officer at U.S. Strategic Command said Saturday an order from President Donald Trump or any of his successors to launch nuclear weapons can be refused if that order is determined to be illegal. Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of Strategic Command, told a panel at the Halifax International Security Forum on Saturday that he and Trump have had conversations about such a scenario and that he would tell Trump he couldn’t carry out an illegal strike. “If it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen. I’m going to say, ‘Mr President, that’s illegal.’ And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ‘What would be legal?'” Hyten said. “And we’ll come up with options with a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works.” In the event that Trump decided to launch a nuclear attack, Hyten would provide him with strike options that are legal. The command would control nuclear forces in a war. The comments come as the threat of nuclear attack from North Korea remains a serious concern and Trump’s critics question his temperament. Trump’s taunting tweets aimed at Pyongyang have sparked concerns primarily among congressional Democrats that he may be inciting a war with North Korea. During testimony before the Foreign Relations Committee earlier this month, retired Gen. Robert Kehler who served as the head of Strategic Command from January 2011 to November 2013, also said the U.S. armed forces are obligated to follow legal orders, not illegal ones. Hyten said he’s talked it over with Trump. “I think some people think we’re stupid. We’re not stupid people. We think about these things a lot. When you have this responsibility how do you not think about it?,’ he said. He said he would not obey an illegal order. “You could go to jail for the rest of your life,” he said.

  • Boston free speech rally draws supporters, protestersBoston free speech rally draws supporters, protesters

    BOSTON (AP) — A few dozen free speech advocates rallied peacefully Saturday on Boston Common but just like last summer’s event, they were outnumbered by counterprotesters. The “Rally for the Republic” event was held by conservative groups Resist Marxism and Boston Free Speech despite being denied a permit by the city. Police surrounded the gathering. Rally speakers gathered at a bandstand on the Common warned that free speech was under threat and accused Antifa and Black Lives Matter groups of being terrorist organizations. White hats with the phrase, “RESIST MARXISM,” were thrown into the crowd, many of whom wore pro-Trump apparel, and criticized the media and left-leaning groups for labeling them as hateful. “I’m here because I support the ideas of free speech and the republic,” said rally attendee Alex Moffett, 23, of Burlington, Massachusetts. “There are many people on the other side who believe their ideas are right and are perpetuating violence in the name of those rights.” Moffett identifies as a Republican. One of the speakers, Tammy Lee, said free speech needs to be “known, practiced and given to all.” “We, as a nation, are broken,” Lee said. “We must begin to listen to each other, and not just look with our eyes and minds closed” At least 100 counterprotesters showed up. “It’s really inspiring and awesome to be out here and to be with all these people who’re rallying for a cause,” said counterprotester Adrian Lee, 19, a sophomore at Boston University. “A lot of people label Antifa solely on their violence but don’t realize that they’re all out here for a good cause, too.” Resist Marxism has denounced white supremacism repeatedly and publicly. But the August rally came shortly after deadly violence erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, and it drew thousands who said they feared white nationalists might show up anyway. Some clashed with police, and more than 30 had been arrested. Rallygoer Brandon Navom, who claims he was fired from his job before the last free speech rally because his employers found out he planned to speak, described the August event as a “travesty.” “The government suppressed our peaceful gathering,” said Navom, 37, of Williamstown. “I believe that societies which engage in discourse and spread logic and reason are peaceful societies.” No injuries were reported at Saturday’s rally and counterprotest, and a total of three people were arrested— two for disorderly conduct and the other for assaulting a police officer.

  • 2 suspects on the run after shootout with Georgia officers2 suspects on the run after shootout with Georgia officers

    GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Police in north Georgia say they’re searching for a man and woman after a gun battle involving police officers. Gainesville police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said Saturday that two officers were hurt in the Friday night confrontation, but neither officer was shot. Holbrook tells The Times of Gainesville that both officers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries and have been released. A 911 caller said the man was dragging the female down the road, and the first officer to arrive began fighting with the man. Police said the woman struck the officer in the head with a gun before the shooting began. Police said the man and woman, both 20, are suspected of aggravated assault on a peace officer.

  • Family sues after child, 5, killed in rotating restaurantFamily sues after child, 5, killed in rotating restaurant

    ATLANTA (AP) — The family of a 5-year-old boy killed when he became caught in a rotating Atlanta restaurant is suing the company, saying it failed to prevent a “longstanding safety hazard.” The lawsuit comes after Charlie Holt died in the Sun Dial, a restaurant atop the 73-story Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the child and his parents were visiting Atlanta from Charlotte, North Carolina, when he became caught between a wall and table as the dining room rotated April 14. The lawsuit says the restaurant had no protections to stop children from getting close to a dangerous area, or to stop the floor’s rotation if a child became trapped. Jeff Flaherty, a spokesman for parent firm Marriott International Inc., told the newspaper the company had no comment. ___ Information from: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, http://www.ajc.com

    VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A jury has convicted a 37-year-old man of three counts of aggravated murder in the 2016 shooting deaths of three people in a home in Washington state. The Columbian reports (http://bit.ly/2hzG9a9) a jury on Friday also convicted Brent Luyster of one count of attempted murder and two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon. Luyster, a known white supremacist, shot and killed Joseph Mark Lamar, Zachary Thompson and Janell Renee Knight on July 15, 2016, in the small town of Woodland. A fourth person was shot and survived. Officials say Thompson was Luyster’s best friend and LaMar a friend. Knight was LaMar’s partner. Prosecutors say Luyster killed the three because he was upset about felony charges in a different case that might land him back in jail. Luyster’s defense team argued that was speculation and said there was little physical evidence against Luyster. ___ Information from: The Columbian, http://www.columbian.com

  • Ukraine detains man wanted for 2004 murder of Forbes editorUkraine detains man wanted for 2004 murder of Forbes editor

    MOSCOW (AP) — Ukraine’s intelligence agency said Saturday it has detained a man wanted for the high-profile murder of an American journalist in Russia 13 years ago. Paul Klebnikov, the U.S.-born editor of Forbes magazine’s Russian edition, was gunned down outside his Moscow office in July 2004. Many people believed the killing was connected to the 41-year-old Klebnikov’s work investigating corruption in Russia and the country’s shadowy business world. Ukraine’s State Security Service said in a statement Saturday that it has detained a Russian man who was wanted for several slayings, including Klebnikov’s. The Ukrainian agency did not identify the suspect. Three people were charged with the journalist’s murder in 2006 and later acquitted. A higher court ordered a retrial for the main suspect, but he absconded before the proceedings could be held. Prosecutors have alleged Klebnikov’s killing was contracted by a Chechen warlord who was the subject of Klebnikov’s 2003 book “Conversations With a Barbarian.” Klebnikov, a New Yorker of Russian descent, investigated corruption and sought to shed light on the closed, sometimes violent world of Russian business. His family said after the 2006 acquittals they were distressed that Klebnikov’s killers remained at large.
