  • LaToya Cantrell becomes New Orleans’ 1st woman mayorLaToya Cantrell becomes New Orleans’ 1st woman mayor

    By KEVIN McGILLAssociated Press NEW ORLEANS (AP) – LaToya Cantrell, a City Council member who first gained a political following as she worked to help her hard-hit neighborhood recover from Hurricane Katrina, won a historic election Saturday that made her the first woman mayor of New Orleans. The Democrat will succeed term-limited fellow Democrat Mitch Landrieu as the city celebrates its 300th anniversary next year. “Almost 300 years, my friends. And New Orleans, we’re still making history,” Cantrell told a cheering crowd in her victory speech. The leader in most polls before the runoff election, she never trailed as votes were counted. Her opponent, former municipal Judge Desiree Charbonnet, conceded the race and congratulated Cantrell late Saturday. Later, complete returns showed Cantrell with 60 percent of the vote. “I do not regret one moment of anything about this campaign,” Charbonnet said. The two women led a field of 18 candidates in an October general election to win runoff spots. Landrieu earned credit for accelerating the recovery from Hurricane Katrina in an administration cited for reduced blight, improvements in the celebrated tourism economy and economic development that included last week’s announcement that a digital services company is bringing 2,000 new jobs to the city. But Cantrell will face lingering problems. Crime is one. Another is dysfunction at the agency overseeing the city’s drinking water system and storm drainage – a problem that became evident during serious flash flooding in August. About 32 percent of city voters took part in last month’s election. It was unclear whether turnout would surpass that on Saturday. Cantrell faced questions about her use of a city credit card. Charbonnet had to fight back against critics who cast her as an insider who would steer city work to cronies. Katrina was a theme in the backstory of both candidates. Cantrell moved to the city from California. Her work as a neighborhood activist in the aftermath of Katrina in the hard-hit Broadmoor neighborhood helped her win a seat on council in 2012. Charbonnet, from a well-known political family in New Orleans, was the city’s elected recorder of mortgages before she was a judge. In the campaign she made a point of saying hers was the first city office to re-open after Katrina, providing critical property records to the displaced. Cantrell entered the race as the perceived front-runner, leading in fundraising and in various polls. She had an 11 percentage point lead in a poll released last week by the University of New Orleans. It showed 46 percent of 602 voters surveyed from Nov. 1-8 favored Cantrell over Charbonnet, who had 35 percent; 20 percent were undecided. Former state civil court Judge Michael Bagneris, who finished third in last month’s race, endorsed Cantrell, as did Troy Henry, a businessman who also ran for the post last month. UNO political science professor Edward Chervenak said the endorsements appeared to help Cantrell overcome revelations that she had used her city-issued credit card for thousands of dollars in purchases without clear indications that they were for public purposes. The money was eventually reimbursed but questions lingered about whether she had improperly used city money for personal or campaign expenditures. Voters also made history in a New Orleans City Council race. Cyndi Nguyen defeated incumbent James Gray in an eastern New Orleans district. An immigrant who fled Vietnam with her family when she was 5 in 1975, Nguyen is the organizer of a nonprofit and will be the first Vietnamese-American to serve on the council.

  • Women Testify Against Mexican Police For Sexual Torture In International CourtWomen Testify Against Mexican Police For Sexual Torture In International Court

    On Thursday and Friday, five women testified before the Inter-American Court for Human Rights and demanded an investigation regarding sexual torture at the hands of Mexican police forces. The abuse happened in May 2006 following a clash between protesters and state forces in the state of Mexico. There are 11 women involved in the case, seeking justice for abuse they suffered in the towns of San Salvador Atenco and Texcoco. During the police crackdown on demonstrators, ordered by then-governor President Enrique Peña Nieto, two people were killed and many were injured. The women say they were beaten, tortured and raped following the confrontation. During the court proceedings, which were posted online , the Mexican government said that the state recognized the abuse and accepted responsibility in 2013, offering monetary reparations to the women. The " Women of Atenco ," as they are called, refused the offer, saying they wanted those responsible to be held accountable instead. To date, no

  • Spokeswoman: David Cassidy in hospital with organ failureSpokeswoman: David Cassidy in hospital with organ failure

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – “Partridge Family” star David Cassidy has been hospitalized in Florida with multiple organ failure. Publicist JoAnn Geffen tells The Associated Press that Cassidy is in a Fort Lauderdale-area hospital with liver and kidney failure. She says he’s in a private room, conscious and surrounded by family. Geffen says there is nothing “imminent” about his condition, and doctors are hoping to “keep him as well as they can until they can find another liver.” Earlier, his rep said Cassidy was in pain and taken to the hospital on Wednesday. The 67-year-old former teen idol, who lives in the Fort Lauderdale area, said earlier this year that he was struggling with memory loss and that he was ending his 50-year career. Cassidy has had numerous personal problems in the decades following his initial success, ranging from substance abuse to bankruptcy. He’s the stepson of actress and fellow “Partridge Family” star Shirley Jones. Reports of Cassidy’s hospitalization prompted a flood of supportive comments on social media. His half-brother Shaun Cassidy, also a former actor and singer and now a TV producer, tweeted Wednesday afternoon, “Thank you for all your love and good wishes for David. It means the world to all of us.” Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.

  • Sen. Flake says GOP is ‘toast’ if it follows Trump, MooreSen. Flake says GOP is ‘toast’ if it follows Trump, Moore

    PHOENIX (AP) – Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake was caught on an open microphone saying that the GOP is “toast” if it follows President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Flake was talking to the mayor of the Phoenix suburb of Mesa offstage Friday after speaking at a town hall session for aerospace company workers. He apparently didn’t know the microphone attached to his lapel was still on when he said , “(If we) become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast.” TV stations at the event picked up his comment. Flake’s office told KNXV-TV that the senator said “if we” before the Phoenix station’s cameras started but that it had nothing more to add. Flake made a surprised expression when someone pointed out the microphone afterward. Flake has been an outspoken critic of Trump and announced in a forceful speech on the Senate floor last month that he would not seek re-election next year. He acknowledged that he could not win a GOP primary in the current political climate. Flake also has criticized Moore, who is facing allegations of sexual misconduct against teenage girls decades ago and calls to drop his bid for the U.S. Senate. Flake said he would “vote for the Democrat” if he were in Alabama and had to choose between Moore and Democratic challenger Doug Jones. In the exchange with Flake, Mesa Mayor John Giles appeared to tell the senator to run for higher office. “I am not throwing smoke at you, but you’re the guy,” Giles said. “Just for fun, think about how much fun it would be, just to be the foil, you know, and point out what an idiot this guy is.” Giles didn’t mention those comments in a statement to the TV station. “As a lifelong conservative Republican, I am troubled when candidates like Roy Moore send the wrong message about my party’s ethics and policies,” he said.

  • Ohio candidate doesn’t regret sexual conquest Facebook postOhio candidate doesn’t regret sexual conquest Facebook post

    By MARK GILLISPIEAssociated Press CLEVELAND (AP) – An Ohio Supreme Court justice and Democratic gubernatorial candidate said on Facebook that people should “lighten up” after deleting a previous post outlining his sexual history with women that drew widespread criticism for trivializing sexual harassment and sexual assault. William O’Neill’s original post on Friday criticized “the dogs of war” calling for Democratic Sen. Al Franken to resign after being accused of groping a woman during a USO Tour in 2006. O’Neill wrote that he had been “sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females” during his life and mentioned several encounters, including one in a hayloft of her parents’ barn. O’Neill added another post Saturday afternoon that said he apologized if he offended anyone, “particularly the wonderful women in my life.” Critics from both parties were swift to condemn the 70-year-old O’Neill, including Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor, a Republican, after Friday’s post. Some called for his immediate ouster from the court. “No words can convey my shock,” O’Connor said in a statement on Friday. “This gross disrespect for women shakes the public’s confidence in the integrity of the judiciary.” In an interview Saturday with The Associated Press, O’Neill said he doesn’t regret what he wrote and that he edited the original post and then deleted it after an online commenter called him insensitive for including information that could identify some of the women. “I agreed with them and took it down,” O’Neill said. “I’m a gentleman after all.” After deleting the Facebook post, he wrote another one that doesn’t discuss his sexual past but again references “the dogs of war” hounding Franken. That post says “sanctimonious judges” calling for him to quit should note his history as an Ohio assistant attorney general prosecuting sexual harassment cases. “Lighten up folks,” the post concludes. “This is how Democrats remain in the minority.” O’Neill said during Saturday’s interview that his message was misunderstood and that his civil rights history shows he’s not an “insensitive misogynist.” He said he wrote the original post because “the sensitive subject of sexual harassment” has led people to treat Franken and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, a Republican, “in the exact same fashion.” Moore has been accused of sexually assaulting teen girls in Alabama when he was a prosecutor in his 30s. Moore has denied the allegations. Asked if he thought the furor would harm him politically, O’Neill said, “I think it’s clear it’s not going to help me. But sometimes when you’re right, you do have to stand alone. And I am right here.” It’s uncertain whether O’Neill has a political future in Ohio. He has maintained that he would quit his nascent gubernatorial bid if fellow Democrat Richard Cordray decides to run. Cordray announced his resignation as head of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau earlier this week, an expected prelude to him entering the race. O’Neill said he has spoken with Cordray in the last several days, but claimed they did not discuss the race. O’Neill is required to step down from the bench when his current term ends in January 2019 because of state age limits for judges. Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

  • Ann Wedgeworth, known for ‘Three’s Company’ role, dies at 83Ann Wedgeworth, known for ‘Three’s Company’ role, dies at 83

    By KAREN MATTHEWSAssociated Press NEW YORK (AP) – Actress Ann Wedgeworth, who gained fame on film and Broadway before taking on the role of a flirty divorcee on “Three’s Company,” has died at age 83. Wedgeworth died Thursday in the New York area after a long illness, her daughter Dianna Martin said. Wedgeworth landed her first Broadway role in the 1958 comedy “Make a Million” and continued to take on stage roles for decades. She won the 1978 Tony award for best featured actress in a play for her performance in Neil Simon’s “Chapter Two.” She acted in several soap operas and also found success in Hollywood with roles alongside Gene Hackman in the 1973 film “Scarecrow” and Robert De Niro in “Bang the Drum Slowly” the same year. But she’s perhaps best known for her brief tenure on the TV sitcom “Three’s Comedy,” where she played Lana Shields, an older woman with her eyes set on her young neighbor Jack, played by John Ritter. She appeared on only nine episodes of the show before her character was written out, which she said took her by surprise. In a 1980 interview with People, Wedgeworth said she “had no warning or explanation. Suddenly everyone was very cold to me.” Wedgeworth continued to tally TV and film credits for decades, including a starring role on the CBS series “Evening Shade” with Burt Reynolds from 1990 to 1994. She was born in Abilene, Texas, in 1934. Her father was the superintendent of a local school and her mother died when Ann was 2 years old. After getting a drama degree from Southern Methodist University, she moved to New York City in the 1950s to pursue a theater career. She married actor Rip Torn and the couple had a daughter, Danae Torn, before ending their five-year marriage in 1961. Wedgeworth later married acting teacher Ernest Martin and had her second daughter, Dianna Martin. Wedgeworth is survived by her husband, her two daughters and stepsons Michael Martin and Greg Martin.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAgnJDJN4VA Updated at 11:05 p.m. ET One of the founding members of AC/DC, among the best-selling bands in recorded music history, died Saturday. Guitarist and songwriter Malcolm Young was 64 years old. Young's family, which announced his death in a statement, noted that he had suffered from dementia for several years. The place of his death was not shared, though the statement mentioned that he "passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside." In April of 2014, AC/DC announced that Young would be "taking a break from the band to ill health," without disclosing the nature of his illness; in September of that same year, the band revealed that he had dementia. Young's nephew, Stevie Young, toured and recorded with the group in his place. AC/DC was founded in Sydney, Australia, by two brothers, Malcolm (the seventh of eight children in the Young family) and his younger brother Angus.

  • Rethinking Bill Clinton Amid Sexual Harassment DebatesRethinking Bill Clinton Amid Sexual Harassment Debates

    Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit MICHEL MARTIN, HOST: We're going to move now to one of the issues roiling our politics back here in the U.S. and that is sexual harassment. In Alabama, Republican Roy Moore is facing a tough battle in his run for the U.S. Senate. Several women have come forward to say that when Moore was a prosecutor in his 30s, he made unwanted sexual advances toward them. Several report this occurred when they were teenagers. He denies those reports. And Democratic Senator Al Franken has been under fire with accusations that he groped an entertainer on a tour to entertain overseas troops. That was before he took office. The senator has apologized. And, of course, there have been numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against other powerful men in Hollywood, media, business and in the current White House. NPR is among the organizations that have fired or suspended male executives who have been accused of harassment. It's against that backdrop that The Atlantic

  • To Save Their Water Supply, Colorado Farmers Taxed ThemselvesTo Save Their Water Supply, Colorado Farmers Taxed Themselves

    The Western U.S. is just starting to recover after a prolonged, 16-year drought. A lack of water can force people to take a hard look at how they use it, and make big changes. That's what happened in southern Colorado, where farmers have tried a bold experiment: They're taxing themselves to boost conservation. Colorado's San Luis Valley is a desperately dry stretch of land, about the same size as New Jersey. Doug Messick manages potato farms for the valley's Spud Grower Farms. This fall, his fields were full of Russets — the kind you'd use for a loaded baked potato. Hanging from a metal arm above the plants, dozens of nozzles spray down perfect little water droplets. The irrigation water keeps the fields green. Without it, this valley is just a desert. Messick pumps water from a shallow aquifer under our feet. Today there's enough to keep it running. When that epic drought started 16 years ago, "the aquifer was declining," Messick says. "But nobody really started noticing until they

    Azzedine Alaia, the French-Tunisian designer known for his figure-sculpting fashions, has died at 77, the French Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion confirmed on Saturday. In his more than four decades in the fashion industry, Alaia gained a reputation for going rogue; he refused to follow the calendar of international fashion weeks and released his collections only when he was ready. He rose to fame for his body-hugging designs that celebrated the female form. "I like women," Alaia said in a 2013 interview. "I never think about doing new things, about being creative, but about making clothing that will make women beautiful." Alaia earned the nickname "the king of cling" for his form fitting dresses that were worn by some of the biggest stars of the 1980s and '90s, such as Madonna and the model, Naomi Campbell, who was one of his protégées and referred to him as "Papa." As he updated those designs, his cohort of celebrity fans grew to include Lady Gaga and former First Lady

    The Palestinians threatened on Saturday to cease communication with the United States if the White House closes its diplomatic mission in Washington, D.C., lodging a potential thorn in President Trump's plans for Mideast peace. The State Department says the office of the Palestine Liberation Organization must close under a little-known provision in U.S. law that forbids it from requesting Israelis be prosecuted for crimes against Palestinians. Trump may reverse the closure within 90 days if the Palestinians prove they are engaging in peace negotiations with the Israelis. The Associated Press reports it is not "clear that the office would close or whether the Palestinians would have to clear out of the building entirely or just close it to the public." In an interview on Palestine Radio on Saturday, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said, "The Palestinian leadership will not accept any extortion or pressure" from the United States.

  • Thousands March Through Zimbabwe's Capital To Urge Mugabe To Step DownThousands March Through Zimbabwe's Capital To Urge Mugabe To Step Down

    Tens of thousands of euphoric Zimbabweans marched through the country's capital on Saturday to celebrate what may be the near end of President Robert Mugabe's reign. Mugabe, one of Africa's last living independence leaders, had been in power for nearly four decades, until this week when the military ousted him in what it is describing as a "bloodless correction." Journalist Jeffrey Barbee tells Weekend Edition the mood on the streets of Harare was "jubilant, not a rock to be thrown ... peaceful but excited." "People are really excited to see the end of Mugabe," he says. Crowds of exuberant demonstrators marched toward Mugabe's residence in an act of defiance against his abuse of power, which had been going on for decades. Similar protests took place in other parts of the country and abroad. Earlier this week, the military seized control in response to a political power struggle over who would rule Zimbabwe after Mugabe, who has led the former British colony since it gained independence

  • 11 Scenarios For How The Roy Moore Saga Could Play Out11 Scenarios For How The Roy Moore Saga Could Play Out

    Sexual assault allegations against Roy Moore have reverberated from Alabama to Washington, D.C. Many Republican leaders have pulled their support from Moore. They include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, the head of National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is in charge of electing GOP senators. McConnell, trying to save every seat possible in an already too-narrow-for-comfort majority, is gaming out scenarios to try to hold the seat long in GOP hands as Moore faces off against Democrat Doug Jones in a Dec. 12 special election. But, speaking Friday, Kay Ivey, Alabama's Republican governor, said she sees no reason why the election should not proceed as planned next month. And she holds many of the cards in the Moore saga. She set the election date, and in a number of scenarios, she has some discretion to appoint someone else temporarily (Luther Strange had been appointed by her predecessor) or

  • The 'Missed Opportunity' Of Trump's Asia TripThe 'Missed Opportunity' Of Trump's Asia Trip

    When President Trump returned this week from a 12-day, five-nation swing through Asia, he gave himself high marks for the "tremendous success of this trip." But experts say that while he avoided major blunders during his stops in Japan, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines, the president missed more than one opportunity to offer his administration's strategic vision for the region — the world's largest, most populous and fastest growing. "It was all fluff," says David Shambaugh , a professor of political science and international affairs at the Elliott School at George Washington University. "Nothing came out of it except Trump flying in and being treated well himself." Shambaugh points to the lavish dinners, honor guards at nearly every stop and the tea to which the president was treated in Beijing's Forbidden City as "symbols" that the Chinese and "in fact, most Asian leaders, have figured out Trump" — by flattering his ego. The first two legs of the trip — to treaty

    Every time there is a mass shooting in the United States, there is a flurry of concentration on those who died, the alleged or confessed perpetrator, and the sobered, devastated town that will be forever changed. Then at some point, the press caravan moves on — from Sutherland Springs, from Orlando, from Las Vegas. And within weeks, or sometimes just days, another mass shooting is being reported. The public attention moves on, but those affected families don't. More families joined the ranks of the grieving this past week, when five people were killed in Rancho Tehama Reserve, Calif. "It is a pain that will never go away," Tom Mauser says. He's been living with it for more than 18 years. His 15-year-old son Daniel was killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. "My son Daniel was a very gentle, soft-spoken kid," Mauser says. "He was a Boy Scout, piano player, loved to play video games, straight-A student." Daniel was shy, but faced his fears head-on, his father says. "He chose

Morales owns Kachka , a restaurant in Portland, Ore., that serves food from the former Soviet Union. It's one of the most popular places to eat in one of the hottest food cities in the country. Now, Morales has a new cookbook — also called Kachka . Its publication inspired this jaunt to Little Odessa, the kind of neighborhood where the child of Eastern European immigrants feels at home. "Because there's such a concentration of people from the former Soviet Union," Morales explains. People like Morales' own Russian Jewish immigrant parents.
