|Columbus Crew considering relocating to TexasNBC4i.com / 8 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The owners of the Columbus Crew announced Tuesday they were looking into possibly moving the club to the city of Austin, Texas. According to a release, the President of Precourt Sports Ventures, the group that owns the Columbus Crew, Dave Greeley will address the media today at 11am, via conference call about the possible move. “Despite our investments and efforts, the current course is not sustainable,” Anthony Precourt, chief executive officer of Precourt Sports Ventures and chairman of Columbus Crew SC, said. “This Club has ambition to be a standard bearer in MLS, therefore we have no choice but to expand and explore all of our options. This includes a possible move to Austin, which is the largest metropolitan area in North America without a major league sports franchise. Soccer is the world’s game, and with Austin’s growing presence as an international city, combined with its strong multicultural foundation, MLS in Austin could be an ideal fit.” Columbus Crew SC was the first charter granted in Major League Soccer (MLS) in 1996. Columbus Crew SC has recognized its growing disparity in attendance and corporate support compared to its MLS peers and other midsize markets, such as Kansas City, Orlando, Portland and Salt Lake City. According to the release, Precourt Sports Ventures has been talking to Columbus leaders about its concerns since 2016. “As attendance League-wide continues to grow on a record-setting pace, and markets across the country seek to join MLS, Columbus’ situation is particularly concerning,” said MLS Commissioner Don Garber. “Despite PSV’s significant investments and improvements on and off the field, Columbus Crew SC is near the bottom of the League in all business metrics and the Club’s stadium is no longer competitive with other venues across MLS. The League is very reluctant to allow teams to relocate, but based on these factors, we support PSV’s efforts to explore options outside of Columbus, including Austin, provided they find a suitable stadium location.”Filed under: Local, News, Sports Tagged: austin, Columbus, crew, moving, relocating, soccer, sports, texas

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Officials are planning a new system of travel alert information for part of the Ohio Turnpike near Cleveland with an eye toward a day when autonomous vehicles might regularly cruise that roadway.The Plain Dealer reports the Turnpike Commission will use roadside sensors and other technology to produce traffic and weather alerts that could serve self-driving vehicles. For now, the data about factors such as foggy conditions and snowplow angles could serve newer vehicles equipped to receive digital short-range radio signals and display the results for drivers.The commission approved a $1.46 million contract for the equipment and software.The technology should be in use by early next year between Amherst and Streetsboro. Turnpike officials say if the results are good, they might expand it along the 241-mile toll road.

|Iraq: After losing Kirkuk, Kurdish forces pull out of SinjarWBNS 10TV / 2 h. 55 min. ago more|
KIRKUK, Iraq (AP) — Kurdish forces lost more territory in Iraq on Tuesday, withdrawing from the town of Sinjar a day after Iraqi forces pushed them out of the disputed city of Kirkuk.Meanwhile, thousands of civilians were seen streaming back to Kirkuk, driving along a main highway to the city's east. The Kurdish forces had built an earthen berm along the highway, reinforced by armored vehicles, but were allowing civilians to return to the city.Many returnees were seen with their children and belongings packed tight in their cars.The Iraqi forces' retaking of Kirkuk came only two weeks after they had fought together with the Kurdish fighters to neutralize the Islamic State group in Iraq, their common enemy.As Kirkuk's Arab and Turkmen residents on Monday evening celebrated the change of power, thousands of Kurdish residents, fearful of federal and Shiite militia rule, packed the roads north to Irbil, the capital of the northern autonomous Kurdish region.On Tuesday, they were going back.When Iraq's armed forces crumbled in the face of an advance by Islamic State group in 2014, Kurdish forces moved into Kirkuk to secure the city and its surrounding oil wells though it was 32 kilometers (20 miles) outside the Kurds' autonomous region in northeast Iraq.Baghdad has since insisted Kirkuk and its province be returned to the central government, but matters came to a head when the Kurdish authorities expanded their referendum last month to include Kirkuk. To the Iraqi central government, that looked like Kurdish expansionism.The city of more than 1 million is home to Arabs, Kurds and Turkmen, as well as Christians and Sunni and Shiite Muslims.By midday Monday, federal forces had moved into several major oil fields north of the city, as well as the Kirkuk airport and an important military base, according to Iraqi commanders. Kurdish party headquarters inside Kirkuk had been abandoned.In the predominantly Yazidi town of Sinjar, Masloum Shingali, commander of the local Yazidi militia, said Kurdish forces had left before dawn on Tuesday, allowing Iraqi Shiite militiamen to move in.The Yazidis were massacred by the Islamic State group when the jihadis seized the town in 2014. More than 2,000 were killed, and thousands of women and children were taken into slavery. Kurdish forces, supported by U.S. airstrikes, liberated the town in 2015.Town Mayor Mahma Khalil said the Iranian-supported Popular Mobilization militia forces were securing Sinjar. The militias are recognized by Iraq's government as a part of its armed forces but are viewed with deep suspicion by the country's Kurdish authorities, which see them as an instrument of Tehran.The Kurdish forces "left immediately, they didn't want to fight," Shingali said.The Shiite militia had supported Iraqi forces' to oust Kurdish troops out of Kirkuk. The Kurdish forces withdrew to their autonomous region in the northeast.

|Lima Company Memorial, Central Ohioans line streets for Eyes of Freedom paintingsNBC4i.com / 9 h. 22 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS (WCMH)– Motorcyclists and people with the Lima Company Memorial gathered at the Scioto Downs parking lot to escort the Eyes of Freedom pairings to Circleville Monday. The exhibit will be on display for the pumpkin show starting Tuesday until Sunday. The Eyes of Freedom are paintings to honor the service and sacrifice of the 23 Central Ohio men who fought and died together during Operation Iraqi Freedom. People lined the streets along U-S 23 to be a part of this grand entrance. That was something that meant a lot to the artist, Anita Miller. “It’s just beautiful to see that kind of affection,” said Miller. Fred Harris said this was a moment of a lifetime to see this masterpiece. He’s a navy vet who served in Vietnam. He had the honor to escort the mural to the Circleville Pumpkin Show and said he can only describe his feelings in one way. “It was a great honor. It gave me goosebumps just to go and be a participant,” said Harris. “It was very heart-touching to see the people waving flags, some of the cars even stopped coming north on 23 to show the honor for the trailer and the riders involved with the motorcycles. It was an honor for me, it really was. It made me feel like a true American.” Miller says what she hopes these paintings can do is bring people together and give them a space to never forget the sacrifice the men and women who strap on these boots make every day. “We need as a community, as a nation, as a family, to come together, and this is a place we can do that.”Filed under: Local, News Tagged: army paintings, lima company, lima company paintings

A person with direct knowledge of the situation says attorneys for Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott are set for an emergency hearing in federal court in New York as they try again to stop the running back's six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations.Elliott's legal team filed a request for a temporary restraining order Monday and will get a hearing Tuesday in the Southern District of New York, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the filing hadn't been made public.Last year's NFL rushing leader is suspended for Sunday's game at San Francisco after a federal appeals court overturned an injunction that had allowed him to play this season.The case is shifting to New York because the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ordered the dismissal of Elliott's lawsuit in Texas. Elliott's attorneys have indicated they are still pursuing the case with the New Orleans court.The person told the AP that U.S. District Judge Paul Crotty would hear arguments Tuesday in New York because the presiding judge, Katherine Polk Fialla, is out of town.
|Confirmed cases of canine flu worry vets in east ColumbusWBNS 10TV / 10 h. 33 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS -- Two confirmed cases of canine influenza in East Columbus has local veterinarians worried about a possible outbreak of the virus."It's something we need to take pretty serious," said Dr. Aaron Buck, veterinarian at Health Pets of Lewis Center.PetSmart officials say they saw multiple cases of respiratory illness at their Easton location starting Oct. 10. The company confirmed two cases of canine influenza, which is highly contagious for dogs. One case was confirmed Oct. 10, the other on Oct. 13. PetSmart released a statement regarding the matter“We immediately implemented a protocol to help keep pets safe and healthy that included: a stop on new reservations for the PetsHotel and Doggie Day Camp; implementation of a rigorous disinfecting process throughout the store; and outreach to all pet parents with pets that may have been exposed."The company began accepting pets into their PetsHotel and Doggie Day Camp again on Oct. 14. Since then, PetSmart has not reported any new signs of illness.Dr. Buck says it is best to keep an eye out for influenza symptoms in your pet."Some animals can have a mild form of influenza -- a hacking cough, some animals will have nasal discharge. And some animals can show up with a more severe form of influenza which is what we worry about," he said.There is a 1-5 day incubation period for the virus. Then it takes another 2 to 3 days before symptoms show."The animals most affected are the very young and the very old animals with weakened immune systems," Dr. Buck said.Canine influenza is so contagious that Healthy Pets of Lewis Center has a sign on the door stopping coughing dogs from going inside. Instead, veterinarians will take those appointments in the parking lot."We don't want to bring the animal into our facility to have there be exposure to our other animals who are here boarding or that are also here in our hospital being treated," he said.If your dog is showing symptoms of canine flu, it is best to get them evaluated by a veterinarian and treated with antibiotics. Even if your pet is not showing signs of the virus, you can be proactive and get your dog vaccinated.

|Former Pike County deputy pleads guilty to reckless homicide in death of neighborNBC4i.com / 12 h. 28 min. ago more|
WAVERLY, Ohio (AP) — A former deputy sheriff who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of an unarmed man after a car chase pleaded guilty on Monday to reckless homicide in the fatal shooting of a neighbor he said had asked him for a lesson on how to disarm someone. Former Pike County Deputy Joel Jenkins pleaded guilty to a felony charge of reckless homicide in the December 2015 death of Jason Brady. Prosecutors dismissed other charges including involuntary manslaughter and tampering with evidence in the plea deal and agreed to lower a mandatory prison sentence for a gun specification from three years to one. Jenkins pleaded guilty on the day his trial was to start in Pike County Common Pleas Court. Prosecutors said Jenkins had been drinking before trying to teach Brady how to disarm someone on Dec. 3, 2015, and hadn’t ensured the gun being used was unloaded. They said the gun went off twice and struck Brady, 40, in the head, killing him. Jenkins was fired from the Pike County sheriff’s office after the shooting. Jenkins’ attorney, Mark Collins, said after the hearing that Jenkins and Brady were longtime friends. He said Jenkins had two beers that day and later had four shots of liquor. He said that when Jenkins’ blood alcohol content was tested seven hours later it showed he wasn’t impaired. Collins said Brady had asked Jenkins to demonstrate how to disarm someone. He said Jenkins checked to ensure the chamber of the handgun was clear but didn’t recheck it when Brady later requested another demonstration after Jenkins had walked away and returned. “It was a stupid, tragic mistake to use a real gun,” Collins said, adding that Jenkins wanted to take responsibility for his actions. Jenkins, 33, could be sentenced to up to three years on the reckless-homicide charge. A sentencing date hasn’t been set. Jenkins was under investigation in an on-duty fatal shooting at the time of Brady’s death. A jury in January found Jenkins not guilty on charges of murder and reckless homicide in the March 2015 fatal shooting of Robert Rooker after a police chase. Prosecutors argued that Jenkins unnecessarily fired nine times through the windows of Rooker’s stopped vehicle, hitting him seven times. Jenkins testified he was forced to fire because he thought Rooker, 26, was leaning down to grab a weapon.Filed under: Local, News Tagged: deputy, guilty, jenkins, Joel, pike county, Reckless homicide

KENTON, OH (WCMH) — A Central Ohio community is trying to cope after a tragic accident claimed the life of an emergency medical technician. With flags at half-staff, deputies in Hardin County remembered the life of their friend and colleague, Krista McDonald. “She was very well liked here, and our staff feels this as a great loss,” said Chief Deputy Dennis Burns, with the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office. McDonald worked full-time as a dispatcher in Hardin County before leaving to take a similar position in Bellefontaine. Burns said she was also pursuing her dream as a volunteer EMT. “That was her niche,” said Burns. “That was her interest, her love. She was doing what she loved.” Saturday night, she was responding to a call when a motorist failed to yield and struck her ambulance. McDonald died on the scene. Those who knew her are struggling to comprehend what happened. “I think that she seriously leaves a void in many of our lives,” Burns said. “People are going to miss her and the things that she did, but also miss her as a person and just the caring and compassion she brought with her to the job.” EMT Peggy Eastman was also seriously injured in the crash. She remains in the hospital in critical condition. Investigators say possible charges against the driver who crashed into the ambulance are still pending.Filed under: Local, News Tagged: accident, emt, EMT KILLED, hardin county, kenton, krista mcdonald, Ohio

Danielle Pierce spoke about how much she misses Richardson and wants to know how someone can sleep at night knowing they hit a man with their vehicle and left him to die alone on a sidewalk. “He was a good dad, a very good dad, a very hard worker,” Pierce said. “He cared about me like the sun rose and set on me, and I’ll never have that again so it’s, it’s really sad.” Pierce said Richardson rode his bicycle to work every morning and recalls the day she found out he was killed. “I was at work and normally he calls me at 7 to wake me up. He didn’t do that on the 16th,” Pierce recalled. “When he got to the hospital he was unconscious. They said they worked on him for 10 minutes but his brain had swelled because whoever hit him threw him 30 yards. They know that his bike went flying, his body went flying.” The Pierce and Richardson have two daughters together, Danika and Janelle, ages 7 and 9. “Tuesday my daughters have a father-daughter dance at school. Josh was at all of those type of things,” Pierce said. “He won’t be there, you know? They’ll get married in Jesus’ name one day. Who’s going to walk them down the aisle?” Pierce just wants the person responsible to make things right. “You know you hit this man. Now make it right, just make it right,” she said. Anyone with information about the hit and run is asked to contact the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.Filed under: Crime, Local, News Tagged: agler road, Columbus, fern avenue, hit and run, joshua richardson, Ohio, pedestrian struck
|Outdated and overdue, lawmakers take on child support this weekNBC4i.com / 15 h. 4 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS (WCMH) — One in three children in Ohio is involved in the child support program. Parts of the system are outdated and according to experts, not benefiting children as well as it could be. Over the past few years, efforts to resolve these issues have failed at the statehouse. This general assembly, lawmakers are taking another run at updating something that has not changed for more than two decades. The last time the State changed the way child support was determined or enforced was in 1992, 25 years ago. At that time, they decided to use calculations that were based on economic data collected between 1980 and 1986. Think back to that time; how much did things cost? Child support is determined by how much it costs to raise a child, and for more than 20 years we have been calculating that using outdated data. The method for the calculations is also flawed, according to Amy Roehrenbeck. Roehrenbeck is the executive director of Ohio Child Support Enforcement Agency Directors Association. According to Roehrenbeck, the method does not currently take into account the use of credit cards to pay for raising a child, which puts a tremendous burden on low-income earners. State Senator Bill Beagle is sponsoring a bill that failed in the last general assembly that would change these calculations and method. It would also change who can adjust these things by changing the law from residing in the revised code to being part of the administrative code. This change would allow the Department of Jobs and Family Services to update the calculations and method without waiting for lawmakers to get a bill passed first. Senator William Coley also has legislation he has re-introduced this session. Senate Bill 70 nearly completed its legislative journey last general assembly. It passed the Senate, and made it all the way through its House committee; all it needed was to be put up for a vote on the floor of the House, according to Roehrenbeck. That vote never happened and the bill died as the session came to a close last December. Roehrenbeck was told the bill wasn’t urgent. Senate Bill 70 would streamline the administrative functions of child support enforcement. There are 10 major functions it addresses, most of which save families time and money by not forcing them to go to court to resolve issues. For instance, because of the way the law currently is written the enforcement agency cannot order a mother to pay child support; they have to go to court and a judge has to do that, all because the only allows the enforcement agency to order men to pay. “It is urgent for us,” said Roehrenbeck. “We think that it is high time for us to make these overdue and necessary changes to modernize our child support program.” She isn’t alone; Senator Beagle called out his fellow lawmakers as well. “Many of us campaign on not kicking issues down the road, and we campaign on making the tough choices, and this is one of those times where we have to make those difficult choices,” said Beagle. With the changes Beagles bill would make, it is possible for some low-income earners to end up being ordered to pay less in child support than they would have been if no changes were made. Roehrenbeck says that isn’t necessarily a bad thing; only 30% of people in that low-income category are currently paying their child support; the thought process is, by making it less of a financial burden they are more likely to pay. Because each case has too many variables to estimate how the change would affect things specifically, overall Roehrenbeck believes the changes will be for the better. Additionally, none of the changes SB 125 makes would affect anyone who is currently paying child support until their case is up for modification. Senate Bill 125 is up for a possible vote in the Senate committee it was assigned to Tuesday. Senate Bill 70 is scheduled for a hearing in the committee it was assigned to on Wednesday.Filed under: Local, News, Ohio Statehouse Newsroom, State Tagged: child support, child support law, legislature, Ohio, ohio child support
|Buckeyes visit patients at OSU’s James Cancer HospitalNBC4i.com / 15 h. 11 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS (WCMH) – JT Barrett impacts thousands of fans each Saturday as they cheer him on at Ohio Stadium. Today, he wanted to take time to give back by visiting several patients at the James Cancer Hospital. “Something I really didn’t think about as far as the impact I could have by just showing my face and showing that they are strong and whatever they’re going through, they have a little support,” said Barrett. Kimberly Church-White graduated from Ohio State and she’s been battling multiple myeloma cancer for 10 years. She can see Ohio Stadium from her room, but today was the first time she’s ever met one of the players. “It was really a thrill, it was great for us, like I said we’re Buckeye fans and long-time Buckeyes and it was wonderful to meet them. Nice young men,” said Kimberly. Players were greeted with smiles as they entered each patient’s room. “When you go in there and see those guys light up and those people light up, and the situation they’re in, and they’re worrying up supporting us, and I just know how I would be able to do it, so we can go in there and put a smile on their face it just feels really good,” said senior Tracy Sprinkle.Filed under: Buckeyes, Local, News, Sports Tagged: cancer, football, james cancer, ohio state, osu

|Online threat again forces Miami Trace Local Schools to closeNBC4i.com / 17 h. 23 min. ago more|
WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, OH (WCMH) — For already the second time this school year, Miami Trace Local Schools canceled all classes Monday because of an online bomb threat. Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth says investigators believe the same person is responsible for Monday’s threat and the one that canceled classes in mid-September. “We think we’re dealing with the same person and we also believe it’s probably a student,” Stanforth said. The threat was posted on Instagram and read, “The people I tag are going to get bombed.” The threat and all around the message were the Instagram account names of about a dozen Middle School students. Travis Huffman says one of those named was his 12-year-old son Trenton. “It’s plain as day,” Huffman said. “My son’s name is front and center – right there and that’s alarming.” Bomb-sniffing K-9’s were used to sweep all district buildings. Nothing was found. Investigators say the person who did this was quick – creating an Instagram account, posting the threat early this morning and then closing the account and offline before law enforcement was even notified. Stanforth says the very nature of Instagram makes it difficult for law enforcement to track deactivated accounts. “By design, they don’t allow that to happen,” Stanforth said. “Once it’s used, it’s deleted or never retained. So if they don’t have it in their database, they’re not going to be able to provide it to us.” Travis Huffman hopes that Instagram is able and willing to help. “If they don’t then what – does it just continue and anytime a kid doesn’t want to go to school, he just makes a threat on Instagram and shuts down a whole school district. This could be never-ending.” Trenton Huffman says the other names included on the threat are all friends. “It makes me feel upset, scared,” Trenton said. “It makes me feel like I don’t want to come to school anymore.” Trenton, a sixth grader, says he has no idea who would make such a threat or why his name was among those on the post. His father says the use of names in this threat makes it personal and he wants answers. “Just a quick sweep of the school and then back to normal business tomorrow is not an answer for me,” Huffman said. That’s not a solution to this. This needs to be dealt with.” Sheriff Stanforth said there will be extra security on hand Tuesday when the schools reopen. He urged any students with information to come forward. “If they just have knowledge of it, they need to tell an adult,” Stanforth said. “They need to tell a school official or law enforcement what they do know and that has not been easy to get out of young children.” Filed under: Local, News Tagged: miami trace, school, school threat, threat

|Blind skateboarder inspires others to achieveNBC4i.com / 21 h. 56 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Riding a skateboard is hard enough when you’re able to see what you’re doing. Dan Mancina does it with only five percent of his vision. Mancina, 30, has been skateboarding since he was seven years old. But several years ago, a degenerative eye disease—retinitis pigmentosa, or RP—robbed him of 95 percent of his sight. “I just kind of woke up one day and couldn’t really see anything out of my left eye,” Mancina said. “Same thing kind of started happening to my right eye.” These days, Mancina can only see with his right peripheral vision, for the most part. But when he started losing his vision, he said he thought skateboarding was out of the question. “That was part of my life that was over,” Mancina said. But Mancina persevered. He got back on his skateboard, slowly relearning to do the things he’d always been able to do, and then eventually learning new tricks. Now, he takes his board and his message all over, to places such as the Ohio State School for the Blind (OSSB). Mancina met with some of the residential students there on Sunday, October 15, which is White Cane Day—a day to educate the world about blindness and celebrate the achievements of people who are visually impaired. On Monday, the beginning of 2017 Mobility Week at OSSB, Mancina spoke to groups of students and demonstrated skateboarding tricks to them. “It’s kind of inspirational, you know. It kind of lets us know that we as blind people can still do everything that sighted people can do,” said Alex Crawford, a senior. “It just kind of drives the point home that we can do anything everybody else can do, even if we have to adapt it and do it in a different way.” Crawford became interested in skateboarding at age 13 or 14, after watching his brother do it. But he was told he couldn’t do it himself. “People always told me I couldn’t do it because I didn’t have good enough vision to do it,” Crawford said. “I did not like that. So you know, I kept trying to skateboard.” Crawford said he invested in a longboard and skateboards frequently in downtown Columbus. “I think it kind of freaks people out when they see me with my cane in my back pocket. They get kind of scared,” Crawford said. Mancina’s message doesn’t just apply to those who are interested in skateboarding. Andre Cummings, a junior, said he knew nothing about skateboarding until he interviewed Mancina for a monthly podcast he does at school. “Didn’t even know blind people could skateboard, and then he comes in and he just rocks my world,” Cummings said. Cummings said that, prior to his vision loss, he competed in video game tournaments. Now, he’s inspired to return to his hobby. “It makes me want to overcome anything that stands in my way,” Cummings said. Of all Mancina’s accomplishments as a skateboarder, he said meeting new people and visiting new places are among the most meaningful. “I just really want to show the kids that, first, not to be afraid to try things that might scare you.” Mancina said. “Getting yourself out of your comfort zone is the best way to kind of grow as a person and really kind of get a different perspective of the world and your life.”Filed under: Local, News Tagged: blind, blind skateboard, blind skateboarder, school for the blind, school for the deaf, skateboard

GROVE CITY, OH (WCMH) — The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says six bison were killed by their owner and other farmers after they escaped a property in Grove City Sunday evening.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, the Grove City Police Department and representatives from the Ohio Department of Resources were called. The bison were stopped in a field near Holton Road and Buckeye Parkway. Deputies with FCSO, officers with Grove City PD, ODNR, the owner and several other farmers attempted to corral them but were unsuccessful because the bison appeared to be visibly agitated. ODNR advised the bison shouldn’t be allowed to enter residential neighborhoods and after several options were proposed, it was determined that the animals would be killed to ensure safety. The bison were herded to a large bean field and were safety killed by the owner and other farmers around 6:47pm. Deputies remained in scene while the animals were shot. No law enforcement personnel fired any shots.Filed under: Local, News Tagged: bison, grove city, killed

|Poll: Most say Trump making NKorea situation worseThe Columbus Post / 1 d. 21 h. 9 min. ago more|
By Matthew Pennington and Emily Swanson Wire Service Correspondents WASHINGTON (AP) – North Korea’s nuclear weapons development is spooking most Americans, and two-thirds of them say President Donald Trump’s war of words with the isolated nation’s leader is making the situation worse. Less than 1 in 10 thinks Trump’s comments are making it better. Those are the findings of a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, as tensions between the adversaries escalate and North Korea comes closer to its goal of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the continental U.S. The poll was conducted about a week after Trump intensified rhetorical exchanges with his counterpart Kim Jong Un, dubbing him “Rocket Man” and threatening in a Sept. 19 speech at the U.N. to “totally destroy” North Korea if the U.S. is forced to defend itself and its allies. Kim responded with dire threats and insults of his own, calling Trump “deranged” and a “dotard.” “The instability of it all makes me very nervous,” said Diana Egan, 34, of Los Angeles. She described herself as a moderate Republican but voiced anxiety about how North Korea might respond to Trump’s tough talk and tweets. “You don’t know where the line is for them, and where they say, ‘I’m going to push this button.’” The poll found that 65 percent of Americans think Trump’s comments have made the situation between the U.S. and North Korea worse, including 45 percent who think he’s made the situation much worse. Only 8 percent think he’s making the situation better. Eighty-nine percent of Democrats, 59 percent of independents and 38 percent of Republicans think Trump’s comments have made things worse. Although North Korea’s ability to wed a nuclear warhead with a long-range missile and strike a target in the U.S. remains uncertain, most respondents are worried about Kim attacking America. In July, North Korea tested for the first time a missile that could potentially strike most of the continental U.S. Some 67 percent of Americans are very or extremely concerned about the threat North Korea’s nuclear weapons program poses to the United States. Four in 10 are concerned about the threat posed to where they live specifically, more so if they live in urban areas. “He (Trump) will be somewhere safe. We got nowhere to go,” said Anthony Leroy Waters, 61, of Wilmington, North Carolina. He said he lives 30 miles from a nuclear power plant and fears the impact an attack could have on his locality. “It’s scary,” he said. According to the poll, Democrats are more likely than Republicans to be concerned about where they live, 50 percent to 32 percent. Overall, 68 percent of respondents say they are concerned about the threat posed to U.S. territories like Guam, and 69 percent are concerned about the threat to U.S. allies, such as Japan and South Korea — North Korea’s neighbors. That concern registered higher among older Americans than younger ones. Some 75 percent of Americans also think comments made by North Korean leaders have made the situation between the two countries worse. Eighty-three percent of Democrats and 70 percent of Republicans agree. Mui Baltrumas, 67, of Evanston, Illinois, dissented. He said the North Korean threat is being blown out of proportion and Kim Jong Un is more calculating and “not nearly as crazy as everyone thinks he is.” Baltrumas, who leans Democrat, said he was more concerned by the “John Wayne-style machismo coming out of the White House.” “So long as we’re looking at North Korea, we’re not looking at problems in our own backyard. I think it’s a nice, cheap political diversion,” he said. The AP-NORC poll of 1,150 adults was conducted Sept. 28-Oct. 2 using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. Respondents were first selected randomly using address-based sampling methods, and later interviewed online or by phone.

|At least 50 killed as gunman opens fire at Las Vegas concertThe Columbus Post / 15 d. 0 h. 45 min. ago more|
By Sally Ho and Regina Garcia Cano Wire Service Correspondents LAS VEGAS (AP) — A gunman perched high on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas Strip casino unleashed a shower of bullets down on an outdoor country music festival below, killing at least 50 people and wounding more than 200 as tens of thousands of frantic concert-goers screamed and ran for their lives, officials said Monday. It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Country music star Jason Aldean was performing Sunday night at the end of the three-day Route 91 Harvest Festival when the gunman opened fire across the street from inside the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. SWAT teams quickly descended on the concert and the casino, and officers used explosives to get into the hotel room where the suspect was inside, authorities said. The gunman died at the scene and was identified by Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo as Stephen Paddock, 64. A motive was not immediately known. Aldean was in the middle of a song when the shots came rapidly: Pop-pop-pop-pop. Video of the shooting then showed Aldean stopping and the crowd getting quiet as if they were unsure of what had just happened. The gunman paused and then fired another volley of muzzle flashes from the gold glass casino as more victims fell to the ground while others fled in panic. Some said they hid behind concession stands and other crawled under parked cars. A concert-goer captured the moment a gunman opened fire on an outdoor music festival on the Las Vegas Strip late Sunday, killing at least 50 people and wounding more than 200. Country music star Jason Aldean was performing when the gunfire began. (Oct. 2) Kodiak Yazzie, 36, said the music stopped temporarily when the first shots began and the tune even started up again before the second round of pops sent the performers ducking for cover and fleeing the stage. “It was the craziest stuff I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” Yazzie said. “You could hear that the noise was coming from west of us, from Mandalay Bay. You could see a flash- flash- flash- flash.” Thousands in the crowd fled as the bullets ran rampant. Monique Dumas from British Columbia, Canada, said she was at the concert, six rows from the stage when she thought she heard a bottle breaking, and then a burst of popping sounds that may have been fireworks. She said as she made her way out, it was “organized chaos” as everyone fled. “It took four to five minutes and all that time there was gunfire.” In addition to Paddock, police said they located a woman who may have been his roommate — Marilou Danley, 62. Lombardo said they believe this was a “lone wolf” attack. “It’s a devastating time,” Lombardo said. Police shut down the usually busy Las Vegas Boulevard and authorities across the state and federal ranks converged onto the scene as dozens of ambulances ferried those struck by gunfire. Nearby Interstate 15 and flights at McCarran International Airport were briefly closed. Hospital emergency rooms were jammed with victims delivered by ambulance. Others loaded the wounded into their cars and drove them to hospitals. Jose Baggett, 31, of Las Vegas, said he and a friend were in the lobby of the Luxor hotel-casino — directly north of the festival — when people began to run, almost like in a stampede. He said people were crying and as he and his friend started walking away minutes later, they encountered police checkpoints where officers were carrying shotguns and assault rifles. “There were armored personnel vehicles, SWAT vehicles, ambulances, and at least a half-mile of police cars,” Baggett said. Among those killed were two off-duty police officers who were attending the concert. Two on-duty officers were wounded, including one who underwent surgery and was upgraded to stable condition early Monday, police said. Hours after the shooting, Aldean posted on Instagram that he and his crew were safe and said the shooting was “beyond horrific.” “It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night,” Aldean said. President Donald Trump extended condolences to the victims and their families. In a tweet Monday, Trump offered “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump was “briefed on the horrific tragedy in Las Vegas.” Sanders said that “we are monitoring the situation closely and offer our full support to state and local officials. All of those affected are in our thoughts and prayers.” The shooting at the sold-out Route 91 Harvest festival was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Forty-nine people were killed when a gunman opened fire at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando in June 2016. Sunday’s shooting came more than four months after a suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, that killed 22 people. Almost 90 people were killed by gunmen inspired by Islamic State at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris during a performance by Eagles of Death Metal in November 2015.
|Detroit at crossroads 50 years after riots devastated cityThe Columbus Post / 86 d. 18 h. 27 min. ago more|
By Corey Williams Wire Service Correspondent DETROIT (AP) — Deborah Chenault Green is 62, a writer. But 50 years ago she was a pre-teen, sleeping on the porch to escape the oppressive heat, awakening to see a sky that glowed unnaturally. Azerine Jones is a retired baker. But in 1967 she was the 12-year-old daughter of a barber who watched his business go up in smoke. Girard Townsend is 66 now, living in a seniors building near the Detroit waterfront. But a half century ago, he was just a kid on a city bus. The bus stopped near 12th and Clairmount streets. Townsend stepped off – and into the very start of the Detroit riot. “I saw all these guys with masks and shields,” he said – city police officers, most of them white, far outnumbered by a seething black crowd. In the days that followed, he would witness – and take part in – an epic eruption of violence that still reverberates in his life and the life of this city. Five days of violence would leave 33 blacks and 10 whites dead, and more than 1,400 buildings burned. More than 7,000 people were arrested. A decline that had already begun would accelerate; Detroit was the nation’s fourth biggest city in 1960, but would rank 21st by 2016. The middle class fled, and a proud city fell into poverty, crime and hopelessness. There are signs of rebirth in Detroit. But the men and women who lived through the riots are getting older, and most doubt they will live to see Detroit reclaim its former glory, when its very name was synonymous with American know-how and industry. “Detroit still hasn’t come back to where it was,” Townsend said sourly, sorting through 50 years of memories. Detroit wasn’t the first of the riots in the summer of 1967, and it was far from the last. Buffalo, New York, and Newark, New Jersey, preceded it; in the course of the summer, more than 150 cases of civil unrest erupted across the United States. Detroit’s started after a July 23 police raid on an illegal after-hours’ club – a “blind pig” – at 12th and Clairmount. The raid, though, was just the spark. Many in the community blamed frustrations blacks felt toward the mostly white police, and city policies that pushed families into aging and over-crowded neighborhoods. “We had a fear and kind of a hatred toward the police department,” Green said. “They would harass people, especially young black men. Stop them for no reason. A lot of men and women were beaten. A lot of that led up to the city exploding.” When Gerard Townsend got off the bus that night, he stumbled into the immediate aftermath of the blind pig raid. By the next day, the riot was in full bloom: “I got up the next morning and the whole west side was on fire. Everything was burning. People were running around with clothes in their hands, TVs and all kinds of stuff.” Townsend was among them. He made off with a television from a furniture store. “We stole liquor and stuff,” he said. “I watched it. I lived it. I was part of it.” There is general agreement that the rioters did not focus their fury on whites. Theresa Welsh and her husband, David, rented an apartment early that summer about eight blocks from where the riot started. “Nobody bothered us. We were a couple of white people wandering around,” said Welsh, 71. Deborah Chenault Green recalls she was at a cousin’s home. They slept on a mattress on the porch because it was such a hot night. “The noise, I think, is what woke us up,” she said. “You could hear cars and people and police sirens. I looked in the sky and I saw red. There was looting. It was mayhem everywhere. Everybody was just going crazy.” National Guard tanks and other armored vehicles rumbled through the streets. There were reports of snipers firing on law enforcement, the National Guard and even firefighters from rooftops and other secreted spots. Authorities fired back. The city lost more than 2,000 shops to fires or looting, many of them owned by blacks. Among them was the barbershop on Warren Avenue owned by Azerine Jones’ father. “They were burning some of everything,” she said “It wasn’t a matter of them saying this was white-owned or black-owned. Stuff just got caught on fire.” When the smoke cleared and the military rolled out, Detroit stood bruised and battered. “A lot of the fires may have started in white-owned business and spread,” Green said. “A lot of black businesses were destroyed. A lot of people had jobs in those shops. The majority of them didn’t reopen. After the riot, it looked like a war zone and the burnt smell still lingered.” Jones said her father never rebuilt his barbershop. He took on other jobs after the riot. “Owning your own business as a black in the 1950s and ’60s was an accomplishment in itself,” she said. “Before the riot it was a really good comfortable neighborhood,” added Jones, who now lives west of Detroit in Farmington Hills. “We had the things that we needed there: A theater, a butcher shop, dairy shop, shoe store. Since my mother didn’t drive it was nice having everything in walking distance. That’s what really got us when they burned everything down. She had to take a bus with the groceries. It just really killed everything.” In the end, it was Detroiters hurting themselves, she said. “The silly people who did this didn’t really realize they were burning down their neighborhoods,” Jones said. “The (white) business owners were able to pick up and go somewhere else. The people who lived there lost a lot. We lost a lot.” The departure of white residents and businesses to the suburbs that had started years earlier accelerated. Between 1970 and 1980 more than 400,000 more people would leave. “Some white people were rooted in Detroit,” Townsend said. But after the riot, “they moved out. They didn’t want to be here anymore.” After the riot, David Welsh took a job as a photographer in a town just north of Detroit. He and his wife moved from the riot zone. “It didn’t make sense for us to be down there anymore, all things considered,” said David Welsh, 74. “We didn’t feel comfortable there anymore.” The couple would move to other parts of the city and eventually settled north of the city limits. So did many middle-class blacks. Altogether, Detroit’s population has fallen by about 1.1 million people since the 1950s. Even as the Motor City was diminished, Murder City grew. More than 700 homicides were committed in 1974. Within a decade of the riot, the car plants that provided jobs and helped keep the city running were hiring fewer people. Three years after the riot, Detroit’s unemployment rate was just over 7 percent. It reached 25 percent by 1990. Green was hired by Chrysler in 1978 to work on one of the automaker’s assembly lines. “That job didn’t last long,” she said. “I got laid off.” Today, nearly four in 10 Detroit residents live in poverty compared to about 15 percent nationally. The city’s $26,000 median income is less than half of the national figure. Now, two years out of insolvency and free of billions of dollars of debt, Detroit is working to fix up its battered neighborhoods and its image. Though more than twice the national number, unemployment is down to 11 percent. Downtown is thriving and some nearby neighborhoods are filling up. The city, 80 percent black, even elected Mike Duggan, Detroit’s first white mayor since the 1970s. The population is leveling out at around 670,000 people and families are taking advantage of special home buying programs through the city’s land bank. Between 2010 and 2014, the city’s white population grew from just under 76,000 residents to more than 88,000. “We’re in the first period of growth in 50 or 60 years – people are moving back,” Duggan recently told business, philanthropic and elected leaders at a statewide policy conference. “Our principle is this: It’s one city for all of us.” To get there, Detroit has had to correct mistakes of the past that led to the 1967 riot and eventually bankruptcy. Duggan said many of those decisions were “rooted in racial discrimination” and included forcing poor black residents into ever smaller areas where housing stock already was aging or substandard. Loans backed by the federal government allowed whites to buy homes in the suburbs in the years leading up to 1967. “Few loans were given to blacks to buy or improve houses in Detroit,” Duggan said. “By 1970, half of the population of Detroit was African American – and it still was segregated. This is our history and it’s something we have to overcome.” But some who lived through the riots say any progress will not wipe away their distress in those five days of violence, and in the 50 years that followed. “It’s part of everyone’s story,” Green said. “I look at the people who suffered through the riot as going through a war-like environment. What happens when you go through a war? A lot of people come out with post-traumatic stress disorder. We were traumatized. We never got the help we needed.”

By Chad Day and Eric Tucker Wire Service Correspondents WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate Judiciary Committee plans to question the former chairman of the Trump campaign and will subpoena him if necessary, the panel’s Republican chairman said Wednesday. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said he and the committee’s top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein of California, have agreed to try to bring Paul Manafort before the panel for questioning about the government’s enforcement of a law requiring registration of foreign lobbyists. Feinstein’s office confirmed that they plan to question him. Manafort would unquestionably be asked about his participation in a Trump Tower meeting last summer with President Donald Trump’s eldest son and son-in-law, where the purpose was to hear potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton from a Russian lawyer. Manafort disclosed the meeting in a package of information he provided to the Senate and House intelligence committees, who have been investigating potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign, as is Robert Mueller, the former FBI director appointed by the Justice Department as the special counsel. “Obviously it would be appropriate for anybody to get into anything that went on at that meeting, and he was at that meeting,” Grassley told Iowa reporters. A person close to Manafort said that he hasn’t yet received a letter from the Senate Judiciary committee about a possible interview. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss Manafort’s private interactions with the committee. Donald Trump Jr. disclosed on Twitter a series of emails on Tuesday that revealed his eagerness to hear negative material on Clinton from a Russian lawyer. The exchange showed Trump Jr. conversing with a music publicist who wanted him to meet with a “Russian government attorney” who supposedly had dirt on Clinton as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.” He was told the Russian government had information that could “incriminate” Clinton and her dealings with Russia. “I love it,” Trump Jr. said in one email response. On Wednesday, the president declared that his son was “open, transparent and innocent. Defending his son’s conduct, Trump again dismissed the ongoing Russia investigation as the “greatest Witch Hunt in political history.” The president’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, said in an interview with NBC’s “Today” that Trump Jr. did not violate any laws by accepting the meeting. He said the president had not been aware of Trump Jr.’s June 2016 meeting and didn’t find out about his son’s email exchange until “very recently.” Sekulow said the president was not being investigated by Mueller. “I would know a little bit about it. I’m one of the lawyers,” Sekulow told ABC’s “Good Morning America.” As the emails reverberated across the political world, Trump Jr. defended his actions in an interview with Fox News, blaming the decision to take the meeting on the “million miles per hour” pace of a presidential campaign and his suspicion that the lawyer might have information about “underreported” scandals involving Clinton. Trump Jr. said the meeting “really went nowhere” and that he never told his father about it because there was “nothing to tell.” “In retrospect I probably would have done things a little differently,” Trump Jr. said.
