|LeBron wears 1 black shoe, 1 white shoe, speaks about TrumpWBNS 10TV / 4 h. 35 min. ago more|
WASHINGTON — LeBron James made a statement during an NBA game with his shoes — one black, one white, with the word "equality" in capital gold letters on the back of each. Then, after the game, James made a statement about President Donald Trump, saying: "This is a beautiful country and we're never going to let one person dictate how beautiful and how powerful we are."The four-time NBA MVP was asked about his choice of footwear for the first half of his Cleveland Cavaliers' 106-99 victory over the Washington Wizards on Sunday night at an arena about a mile from the White House."Obviously, we know where we are right now," James began. "And we know who's at the helm here."He continued, speaking about the importance of "having equal rights and being able to stand for something and speak for something and keeping the conversation going."James then referred to his past discussions of Trump, saying: "Obviously, I've been ... very outspoken and well-spoken about the situation that's going on at the helm here. ... Equality is all about understanding our rights, understanding what we stand for and how powerful we are as men and as women, black or white or Hispanic. It doesn't matter your race."Earlier this year, James called Trump "a bum" on Twitter and also said at Cleveland's preseason media day: "He doesn't understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the president of the United State for guidance, for leadership, for words of encouragement. He doesn't understand that, and that's what makes me more sick than anything."Then, for Cleveland's first regular-season game, James donned a pair of black sneakers with the "equality" message. But this was the first time James chose to wear one white and one black shoe.At halftime Sunday, he changed into other sneakers. James finished the game with 20 points, 15 assists and 12 rebounds."I didn't play well in the first half, and I'm very superstitious, so I took 'em off," James explained, before joking: "I didn't play well in the second half, either, so if there was a third half, I would have took those off."
|RIP for man's 'zombie Nativity' scene in OhioWBNS 10TV / 4 h. 52 min. ago more|
CINCINNATI -- A ghoulish holiday tradition outside of Cincinnati will soon come to a close after an Ohio man said he won't put up his "zombie Nativity" scene after this year. Sycamore Township's Jasen Dixon said he originally wasn't planning to install the display this Christmas season."But I get hundreds of emails from people, local fans," he told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "It's almost like a cult following."Dixon installed the display complete with zombie Mary and zombie baby Jesus in early December. He said he'll put it in storage or sell it after it's taken down sometime after Christmas.When it debuted four years ago, the nativity scene made news worldwide and was met with both scorn and celebration.Sycamore Township in previous years took Dixon to court for alleged zoning violations because of the structure built over the display but eventually dropped the case.Dixon's attorney argued the township was trying to suppress his freedoms.The township didn't issue any fines against Dixon last December and apparently won't go after him this year.Township zoning administrator Harry Holbert Jr. said it's not worth employee time and effort to fight the display.Dixon talked with CBS affiliate WKRC-TV in the past about the display and noted how people generally reacted to his spin on the Nativity scene."It was kind of a publicity stunt for my haunted house I run: 13 Rooms of Doom. It worked," Dixon told the station. "Actually, you'll see them look over and just turn the other way and hit the gas. Other than that, everything's positive. Thumbs up, freedom of expression."
|Police: Woman mauled to death by her dogs while on a walkWBNS 10TV / 5 h. ago more|
GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. -- Police say a 22-year-old woman found dead in Virginia was mauled to death by her dogs, CBS affiliate WTKR-TV reports.Bethany Lynn Stephens' body was discovered in the woods on Thursday night, Goochland County Sheriff James Agnew said. Her father had called police around 8:20 p.m. when he went searching for her where she usually walked her dogs, Agnew said.The two dogs each weigh more than 100 pounds, WTKR-TV reports. Police described them as pit bulls.Police said the dogs appeared to be guarding Bethany's body and officers spent 60 to 90 minutes trying to catch them. The victim's body was taken to the medical examiner's office."It appeared the attack was a violent attack initiated by the victims' dogs while the victim was out for a walk with the dogs," Agnew said of the medical examiner's initial report. "The victim had defensive wounds on her hands and arms trying to keep the dogs away from her, which would be consistent with being attacked ... .""It appears she was taken to the ground, lost consciousness, and the dogs then mauled her to death," Agnew added.Agnew said the investigation is ongoing but there were no strangulation marks on her body and the incident was not ruled a homicide. The dogs are with Goochland Animal Control and the sheriff's office will pursue euthanization."It was an absolutely grisly mauling," he added. "In my 40 years of law enforcement, I've never seen anything quite like it. I hope I never see anything like it again."
|Flames threaten coastal communities as firefighters mournWBNS 10TV / 5 h. 8 min. ago more|
LOS ANGELES — Thousands of firefighters tried Sunday to shield coastal communities from one of the biggest wildfires in California history while a funeral procession rolled past burn-scarred hillsides in honor of one of their colleagues who was killed battling the flames.Crews cleared brush and dug containment lines above hillside neighborhoods in Santa Barbara County, taking advantage of slightly calmer winds a day after gusts fanned a flare-up that prompted more evacuations."Everything's holding really well," fire information officer Lisa Cox said. "Thousands of homes have been saved."While gusts had eased somewhat, even lower intensity winds were still dangerous, she warned. The fire northwest of Los Angeles was 45 percent contained.Television news footage showed at least one structure burned on property in the wealthy enclave of Montecito, and authorities said damage assessments could take days.Mourners stood on freeway overpasses to pay respects to firefighter Cory Iverson, 32, who died Thursday of burns and smoke inhalation. His funeral procession was scheduled to wind through five Southern California counties before ending up at a funeral home in San Diego, where he was based with a state fire engine strike team. He is survived by his pregnant wife and a 2-year-old daughter.The blaze is also blamed for the Dec. 6 death of a 70-year-old woman who died in a car crash on an evacuation route.The fire that started nearly two weeks ago has burned more than 1,000 structures, including at least 750 homes. Some 18,000 more homes are still threatened.Some evacuation orders were lifted to the east in Ventura County, where the blaze erupted, and officials reported making progress protecting the inland agricultural city of Fillmore.Jim Holden returned to his neighborhood in the city of Ventura to find his home still standing amid widespread destruction. He told KABC-TV that at the height of the inferno, when it appeared his house would be lost, firefighters risked their own safety to retrieve his belongings."They broke in and they saved my family photos," Holden said, wiping away tears.Mike and Dana Stoneking lost their Ventura home while many of their neighbors' properties were spared. The Stonekings planned to rebuild and found some solace after retrieving Mike's wedding ring from the ashes.The 422-square-mile (1,093-sq. kilometer) blaze called the Thomas Fire crested a peak just north of Montecito, where evacuation orders remained in effect. Known for its star power, the enclave includes the mansions of Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and many other celebrities."Still praying for our little town," Winfrey tweeted. It was not clear if the former talk show host was in Montecito.A portion of the city of Santa Barbara was also evacuated as a thick plume of smoke blew through city streets. At the city's zoo, workers put some animals into crates and kennels to ready them for possible evacuation.While crews on the fire lines got a break from slightly calmer winds, much of the rest of Southern California was buffeted by powerful gusts that once again increased the wildfire risk across the region. The National Weather Service forecast red flag conditions for extreme fire danger through Sunday evening for Ventura and Los Angeles counties. Trees came down after wind gusts topped 70 mph (113 kph) in mountain areas and 50 mph (80 kph) along the coast.Everything about the fire has been massive, from the sheer scale of destruction that destroyed entire neighborhoods to the legions of people attacking it. About 8,300 firefighters from nearly a dozen states battled the third largest wildfire in state history, aided by 78 bulldozers and 29 helicopters.The cause remains under investigation. So far, firefighting costs have surpassed $117 million.
|Facing misconduct investigation, Panthers owner selling teamWBNS 10TV / 5 h. 15 min. ago more|
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Facing a growing investigation that accuses him of sexual misconduct and using racist language at work, Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced Sunday that he will sell the NFL team after the season.The team announced on Twitter that Richardson is selling the team, linking to a five-paragraph letter by the franchise's only owner."I believe it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership," Richardson wrote, saying he wouldn't begin discussions until after the season. The Panthers, who lost in the Super Bowl two seasons ago, are in playoff position again."I hope everyone in the organization, both on and off the field, will be firmly focused on one mission: to play and win the Super Bowl," said Richardson, 81.Richardson's letter did not directly address the investigation or allegations against him.The NFL awarded Richardson, a former player with the Baltimore Colts, an expansion franchise in 1993, and he has been the team's only owner."There has been no greater mission or purpose in my life than to have brought and NFL franchise to Charlotte," Richardson wrote. "The obstacles back then were significant and some even questioned whether or community could or would support professional football. But I always knew that if given the chance the Carolina would rise to the occasion. And you have."Richardson attended Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers at Bank of AmericaStadium and was photographed sitting beside his wife Rosalind in his luxury box.He did not speak to reporters.The NFL had no comment on the upcoming sale of the Panthers."While I will no longer be the team owner, I will always be the Panthers Number One fan," Richardson's letter said.The Panthers are tied to Charlotte through June of 2019.The city of Charlotte and the Panthers reached agreement on improvements for the team's stadium in 2013. The plan called for the city to contribute about $87 million for renovations to Bank of America Stadium in exchange for a six-year hard tether to keep the Panthers in Charlotte.The money is less than what the team was seeking for improvements of the stadium, which opened in 1996. Forbes estimates the Panthers worth at $2.3 billion. The Buffalo Bills sold in 2014 for $1.4 billion following the death of owner Ralph Wilson.Richardson and his ownership group paid $206 million in 1993 for an expansion team.Richardson's announcement comes after a Sports Illustrated report Sunday that cited unnamed sources who said Richardson made sexually suggestive comments to women and on at least one occasion directed a racial slur at an African-American Panthers scout. The report states that the settlements came with non-disclosure requirements forbidding the parties from discussing the details.The NFL on Sunday said it has taken over the investigation of allegations of workplace misconduct. Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said Sunday the team requested the league take over the investigation for "transparency reasons."The Panthers began play in 1995 but have never delivered on Richardson's promise of winning a Super Bowl. They lost after the 2003 and 2015 seasons.Panthers interim general manager Marty Hurney said he had never seen any evidence of Richardson displaying any sexual or racial misconduct in the workplace."If this (sale) happens I think it is a significant loss for the NFL," Hurney told The Associated Press. "I have the utmost respect for him as an owner. Our employees have the utmost respect for him. I came back because of the respect I have for him and for the organization he started and developed."Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said after Sunday's win over Green Bay that Richardson has served as a father figure to him since his arrival in Carolina seven years ago."For me I hope things don't alter my thinking of Mr. Richardson," Newton said. "But I do know that he has given me some things that I will forever be appreciative of."Panthers coach Ron Rivera said after the game it is important to let the process play out."The only thing I can speak on is for what he has been to me as far as I'm concerned," Rivera said. "A lot of you know I had a house fire, and he was there for (my wife) Stephanie and I. He was tremendous in supporting us. My brother passed, and Mr. Richardson was there and helped me get to the funeral and back. I can't speak to anything other than that."Richardson was hospitalized 2008, one month after receiving a pacemaker for heart problems. He underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2002 and was placed on a donor waiting list for a new heart. He received the new heart on Feb. 1, 2009, and has not had any known setbacks since.It has been a wild year for the Panthers organization.Team president Danny Morrison abruptly resigned in February. Richardson then fired general manager Dave Gettleman on the eve of training camp and replaced him with Hurney on an interim basis.

Cambern said that’s when her family was given the evacuation order.“Yesterday morning it got worse in a minute, and suddenly we found ourselves in a huge billowing cloud of smoke literally looming over our house.

|Cleveland pays $375,000 to settle police shooting lawsuitWBNS 10TV / 8 h. 46 min. ago more|
CLEVELAND -- Cleveland has agreed to pay $375,000 to settle a lawsuit that claimed a white Cleveland police officer shot and wounded an unarmed black man who was trying to surrender while lying face down in a garage.Court documents show that a settlement was reached Thursday in the federal lawsuit filed by 29-year-old Kipp Holloway after the May 2014 shooting.A city spokesman couldn't be reached for comment Sunday about the settlement. The city denied the allegations in a motion after the lawsuit was filed in May 2015.According to the lawsuit and Holloway's attorney, Terry Gilbert, Holloway had gotten a ride from two men he knew when he discovered the men were being chased by a security guard after breaking into a business. The driver of the car crashed after a high-speed pursuit on city streets and Holloway ran to a dilapidated garage where he hid behind a motorcycle, the lawsuit said.Holloway was lying on his stomach on the garage floor when heard a police radio and an officer approaching, prompting Holloway to call out that he was black, not armed and that he had his hands up, the lawsuit said. That's when Sgt. Timothy Patton fired a shot "without provocation," the lawsuit said. The shot went through Holloway's left forearm and ricocheted off the floor into his chest.Patton then "yanked" Holloway to his knees and placed the barrel of a gun into his mouth while asking where his "boys" were, the lawsuit said."Holloway was consumed with fear," the lawsuit said. "He thought the police were going to kill him."The lawsuit said Patton and other officers provided no first aid despite the fact that Holloway was bleeding "profusely," handcuffed him and forced him to walk to an ambulance.Holloway underwent surgery at a hospital. He was jailed after being released and remained there until his trial on charges of breaking and entering and possession of criminal tools in September 2014. A judge dismissed both charges in the middle of Holloway's trial.Gilbert said Sunday that Patton told authorities he shot at Holloway's right hand after it was raised in the air because he thought Holloway was holding a gun. Gilbert said the claim doesn't make sense, because Patton shot him in the left arm."Patton's story was so incredibly unbelievable," Gilbert said. "Ultimately, the judge saw through it."Patton said Sunday that he's not allowed to comment and referred questions to the city of Cleveland.Holloway has undergone two more surgeries and has not regained complete use of his left hand, Gilbert said, while dealing with post-traumatic stress.Cleveland has paid out a number of large settlements in recent years after police shootings of unarmed black people. It paid a total of $3 million to the families of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams after they were killed in a 137-shot barrage of police gunfire in 2012. And the city paid $6 million to the family of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old black boy who was fatally shot by a white officer while playing with a pellet gun in 2014.Cleveland reached an agreement called a consent decree with the U.S. Department of Justice in May 2015 after a months-long Department of Justice investigation concluded that Cleveland police officers had shown a pattern or practice of using excessive force. That agreement remains in place and has led to reform efforts that include a rewriting of the department's use of force policies.

|Trump: I'm not considering firing special counsel MuellerWBNS 10TV / 9 h. 39 min. ago more|
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Sunday that he is not considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller even as his administration was again forced to grapple with the growing Russia probe that has shadowed the White House for much of his initial year in office.Trump returned to the White House from Camp David and was asked if he would consider triggering the process to dismiss Mueller, who is investigating whether the president's Republican campaign coordinated with Russian officials during last year's election.The president answered: "No, I'm not."But he did add to the growing conservative criticism of Mueller's move to gain access to thousands of emails sent and received by Trump officials before the start of his administration, yielding attacks from transition lawyers and renewing chatter that Trump may act to end the investigation."It's not looking good. It's quite sad to see that. My people were very upset about it," Trump said. "I can't imagine there's anything on them, frankly. Because, as we said, there's no collusion. There's no collusion whatsoever."On Saturday, the general counsel for the transition group sent a letter to two congressional committees arguing Mueller's investigators had improperly obtained thousands of transition records.The investigators did not directly request the records from Trump's still-existing transition group, Trump for America, and instead obtained them from the General Services Administration, a separate federal agency that stored the material, according to the group's general counsel.A spokesman for Mueller said the records were obtained appropriately."When we have obtained emails in the course of our ongoing criminal investigation, we have secured either the account owner's consent or appropriate criminal process," Peter Carr said.But many Trump allies used the email issue as another cudgel with which to bash the probe's credibility. Members of the conservative media and some congressional Republicans have begun to systematically question Mueller's motives and credibility while the president himself called it a "disgrace" that some texts and emails from two FBI agents contained anti-Trump rhetoric. One of those agents was on Mueller's team and has been removed.Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign aide, called the investigation an "attack on the presidency" and told CNN there are "more and more indications that the Mueller investigation is off the rails."The talk of firing Mueller has set off alarm bells among many Democrats, who warn it could trigger a constitutional crisis.Some Republicans also advised against the move, including Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, who deemed the idea "a mistake."The rumor mill overshadowed the Republican tax plan, which is set to be voted on this week. Although Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was doing a victory lap on the tax bill on the Sunday talk show circuit, he first had to field questions on CNN's "State of the Union" about whether believed Trump would trigger the process to fire Mueller."I don't have any reason to think that the president is going to do that, but that's obviously up to him," said Mnuchin.Mnuchin added, "We have got to get past this investigation. It's a giant distraction." But he declined to elaborate on how he would want it to end. Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs, was also peppered with questions about Mueller's fate during his own appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" and again urged a quick end to the investigation but insisted that Trump has not discussed firing Mueller."There's no conversation about that whatsoever in the White House," Short said.

|Vikings cruise past Bengals 34-7 to clinch NFC NorthWBNS 10TV / 10 h. 19 min. ago more|
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Eric Kendricks had an interception return for a touchdown, Case Keenum passed for 236 yards and two scores, and the Minnesota Vikings clinched the NFC North title with a 34-7 victory over the depleted and disinterested Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.Running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combined for 37 touches and 242 yards from scrimmage for the Vikings (11-3), who were given quite the reprieve on the schedule a week after their eight-game winning streak ended at Carolina in the last of three consecutive road trips. They were never challenged by a Bengals team missing more than half of its starting defense to injuries and met with a morning report by ESPN that head coach Marvin Lewis will not return next season .The game went so smoothly that Teddy Bridgewater even made his grand entrance, his first live action in 16 months since a massive knee injury. Bridgewater's first pass was intercepted, a high throw that bounced off McKinnon's hands and into the arms of strong safety Shawn Williams deep in Vikings territory. That set up a short touchdown run by Giovani Bernard to keep the Bengals from being shut out for a second time this year.Terence Newman also picked off former teammate Andy Dalton, who went just 11 for 22 for 113 yards and three first downs before the Bengals (5-9) turned to backup quarterback A.J. McCarron midway through the fourth quarter after the interception by Williams.Keenum completed 20 of 23 passes, including seven easy tosses to McKinnon for 114 yards in the first 100-yard receiving game for a Vikings running back since Onterrio Smith on Sept. 26, 2004, against Chicago. With the Bengals already missing both starting cornerbacks and all three regular linebackers, they lost standout free safety George Iloka in the first quarter to a shoulder injury. That left Williams as the only starter in the back seven.About the only bright spot for the Bengals was five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Geno Atkins, who sacked Keenum twice in the first quarter. Dalton and the offense produced these four possessions in the first quarter: three-and-out, interception, turnover on downs and three-and-out. The Bengals didn't cross midfield with the ball until less than 3 minutes were left in the third quarter.Murray scored on a short run to cap a nine-play, 75-yard drive by the Vikings to start the game. Keenum found Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph for touchdown passes in the second and fourth quarters. Rudolph, a Cincinnati native, paid tribute to the 50-year-old franchise's better days by doing his version of the "Ickey Shuffle" to celebrate his score.TORMENTING HIS MENTORVikings coach Mike Zimmer won his first regular-season meeting against his old boss, Lewis, who lost to a former assistant for the first time in eight matchups. Zimmer was the defensive coordinator for the Bengals from 2008-13.STILL SEARCHINGThe Bengals have never won in six all-time visits to Minnesota. The Vikings were division champions in five of those seasons: 1970, 1989, 1998, 2009 and 2017.INJURY REPORTBengals: The long list of missing starters began to grow almost immediately, when Iloka and LT Cedric Ogbuehi (shoulder) left in the first quarter. RT Andre Smith limped off in the fourth quarter.Vikings: Rudolph (ankle) played TE despite being originally listed on Friday as doubtful to play. RT Mike Remmers (back) returned from a five-game absence, but LT Riley Reiff (ankle) missed his first game of the season. CB Mackensie Alexander (ribs) was out. WR Jarius Wright hurt his foot in the fourth quarter and did not return.UP NEXTBengals: Play their final home game against Detroit, with the Lions still carrying an outside chance at a wild-card spot.Vikings: Travel to Green Bay to face the Packers on Saturday night, with their sights set on securing a first-round bye for the playoffs.
|Ravens stay in playoff picture, take down winless Browns 27-10WBNS 10TV / 10 h. 28 min. ago more|
CLEVELAND — Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass, ran for a score and beat Cleveland again as the Baltimore Ravens stayed on track for the AFC playoffs with a 27-10 win Sunday over the Browns, now two losses from becoming the NFL's second 0-16 team.Flacco scored on a 2-yard run and threw a 33-yard TD pass to Benjamin Watson as the Ravens (8-6) took control with two touchdowns in the final 3:01 of the first half.Defensive tackle Brandon Williams recovered a fumble and rolled in for a TD in third quarter to put the Ravens up 24-10.The Browns (0-14) went 0-8 at home — 0-7 in Cleveland, 0-1 in London — for the second time and must win at either Chicago or Pittsburgh to avoid joining the 2008 Detroit Lions in the notorious 0-16 club. Last season, the Browns avoided infamy by winning their final home game and finishing 1-15.Cleveland is 1-29 in two seasons under coach Hue Jackson, who is expected to be back despite his .033 winning percentage.Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer threw two more interceptions, the last into a group of defenders in the fourth quarter.Ravens coach John Harbaugh wasn't concerned about his team overlooking the Browns with so much on the line. Baltimore was coming off a last-second, 39-38 loss at Pittsburgh last week, and while the Ravens weren't at their best, they didn't do anything to help Cleveland.With victories at home over Indianapolis and Cincinnati in its last two games, the Ravens will return to the postseason after a two-year absence.Flacco completed 26 of 42 passes for 288 yards and improved to 17-2 in his career against Cleveland.With the Ravens leading 17-10, Baltimore's defense put away the Browns.Kizer was stripped in the end zone by Za'Darius Smith and the loose ball was pounced on by Williams, who shimmied his 340-pound frame across the goal line.Later, Kizer forced a throw to the back of the end zone that could have been picked off by three Ravens.Cleveland was held to zero total yards in the first quarter, but the Browns went on a 96-yard drive — Isaiah Crowell ran for 59 on the first play — to take a 7-3 lead on Duke Johnson's 12-yard run.After reaching the end zone, Johnson knelt with teammates before flashing "5-0" with his hands to salute Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, who is recovering from back surgery.RAVENOUS RAVENSBaltimore has scored five defensive touchdowns. It's also forced 33 takeaways — nine in two games against Cleveland.SUNDAY SCHOOLThe Browns have lost 31 consecutive games on Sunday.QB CLASSFlacco's .895 winning percentage against the Browns is the third best by an active quarterback against any opponent. Ben Roethlisberger is 21-2 (.913) against Cleveland and Tom Brady is 27-3 (.900) against Buffalo.HUE'S FUTUREMarvin Lewis' imminent departure in Cincinnati has added a new wrinkle to Cleveland's cloudy coaching situation.Although owner Jimmy Haslam has said Jackson will return in 2018, new general manager John Dorsey has left open the possibility of a coaching change. Dorsey ripped fired vice president of football operations Sashi Brown earlier this week, but sidestepped a question about Jackson's future.INJURIES:Ravens: WR Jeremy Maclin injured his knee on the first series, returned briefly and then was held out. ...

|Kremlin says Putin thanked Trump for CIA tip on bombingsWBNS 10TV / 11 h. 20 min. ago more|
MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin telephoned U.S. President Donald Trump Sunday to thank him for a CIA tip that helped thwart a series of bombings in St. Petersburg, the Kremlin and the White House said.During the call, the two leaders' second in three days, Putin expressed gratitude for the CIA information. The Kremlin said it led Russia's top domestic security agency to a group of suspects that planned to bomb St. Petersburg's Kazan Cathedral and other crowded sites this weekend."The information received from the CIA proved sufficient to find and detain the criminal suspects," the Kremlin said.The White House said in its readout of the conversation that "based on the information the United States provided, Russian authorities were able to capture the terrorists just prior to an attack that could have killed large numbers of people."The White House added that Putin extended his thanks and congratulations to CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the entire agency. Trump then called Pompeo "to congratulate him, his very talented people, and the entire intelligence community on a job well done!""President Trump appreciated the call and told President Putin that he and the entire United States intelligence community were pleased to have helped save so many lives," the White House said in its statement. "President Trump stressed the importance of intelligence cooperation to defeat terrorists wherever they may be. Both leaders agreed that this serves as an example of the positive things that can occur when our countries work together."The Kremlin said Putin assured Trump that "if the Russian intelligence agencies receive information about potential terror threats against the United States and its citizens, they will immediately hand it over to their U.S. counterparts via their communications channels."The CIA's tip to Russia comes even as Russia-U.S. ties have plunged to their lowest level since the Cold War era — first over Russia's annexation of Crimea and support for pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine, more recently over allegations that Moscow interfered in the U.S. presidential election to help Trump.While Russian officials have said the two countries were continuing to exchange some terror-related intelligence, Sunday's statement from the Kremlin was Russia's first public assertion that information from the United States helped prevent an attack.The conversation was the second between the Russian and U.S. presidents since Thursday, when Trump thanked Putin for his remarks "acknowledging America's strong economic performance," according to the White House.During the first call, they also discussed during ways to work together to address North Korea's nuclear and ballistic weapons program, the White House said.The Federal Security Service, or FSB, announced Friday that seven suspected followers of the Islamic State group had been arrested for allegedly planning to carry out terror attacks in St. Petersburg this weekend.The agency said the suspects were plotting a suicide bombing in a church and a series of other explosions in the city's busiest areas this coming weekend on IS orders. It said a search of a St. Petersburg apartment found explosives, automatic weapons and extremist literature.Russian news reports said that Kazan Cathedral, a landmark 19th century Russian Orthodox church on St. Petersburg's central Nevsky Prospect, was the prime target.If the suspects succeeded in bombing the cathedral, it would have been the first major attack on a Russian Orthodox Church by Islamic terrorists, who have blown up apartment buildings, passenger planes and transport facilities in Russia.In April, a suicide bombing in the St. Petersburg's subway left 16 dead and wounded more than 50.Russian TV stations have aired footage daily since Friday of the suspects in the foiled attacks being apprehended and questioned. One segment showed FSB operatives outside a St. Petersburg apartment building detaining a suspect, who appeared later saying he was told to prepare homemade bombs rigged with shrapnel."My job was to make explosives, put it in bottles and attach pieces of shrapnel," the suspect, identified by Russian media as 18-year old Yevgeny Yefimov, said in the footage released by the FSB.Several other suspects came from mostly Muslim regions in Russia's volatile North Caucasus, and one man was from the ex-Soviet nation of Tajikistan that borders Afghanistan.The TV reports included footage of a metal container, which the suspects used as a laboratory for making explosives, according to the FSB. Another video showed operatives breaking the doors and raiding an apartment used by other suspects.Last week, the FSB said it also arrested several IS-linked suspects in Moscow, where they allegedly were plotting a series of suicide bombings to coincide with New Year's celebrations.The latest calls between Putin and Trump came after the Russian leader praised his U.S. counterpart during a marathon news conference on Thursday.Putin hailed Trump's achievements, saying that global markets have demonstrated investors' confidence in Trump's economic policies. He said he hoped the U.S. president would be able to follow through on his campaign promises to improve ties with Russia despite pressure from his political foes at home.During the news conference, Putin also reaffirmed his multiple denials of meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and argued that the U.S. is only hurting itself with investigations of alleged collusion between Trump and Russia. The allegations were "invented" by Trump's foes to undermine his legitimacy, Putin said.Alexei Chepa, a deputy head of the foreign affairs committee in the lower house of Russia's parliament, hailed the CIA tip as a "step toward cooperation.""The more such actions we have, the better it will be for both our countries," Chepa told the state RIA Novosti news agency.

|Licking County to start new naloxone distribution programNBC4i.com / 13 h. 4 min. ago more|
NEWARK, OH (AP) — Residents in one central Ohio county can get online training about using naloxone and receive the opioid overdose reversal drug by mail through a new program billed as the first of its kind in the state. The Columbus Dispatch reports the Licking County Health Department will launch the program in January. The county purchased 350 naloxone kits using state grants that contain enough medication to stabilize a person until first responders arrive. Naloxone can be bought in Ohio without a prescription. Department spokeswoman Olivia Biggs says 68 people have died of overdoses in the county since 2015, including 26 so far this year. Biggs says the program will help reduce the stigma associated with drug addiction and be more convenient for people who “really want to save someone’s life.”Filed under: Local, News Tagged: licking county, local, naloxone, newark, news

|Thousands get free groceries at St. Stephen’s giveawayNBC4i.com / 13 h. 21 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The St. Stephen’s Community House, along with the Center for Healthy Families, came together to help feed Central Ohio families on Sunday. The lines are long, but moved quickly. Thousands of families came out for free groceries. Velda Woods has a family of 6, including 3 grandchildren. “It’s hard to buy food and gifts sometimes at Christmas time. So it helps a lot,” said Wood. Our crews followed her and more than 500 volunteers as they loaded carts, and stuffed bags with produce, frozen food, chicken and turkey. Marylin Mehaffie is with St. Stephen’s Community House. She said the event is needed. “For some families they don’t have food for good holiday meals. We can provide that holiday meal though this program,” said Mehaffie. The Center for Healthy families is also doing its part. Organizers say food drives like this are needed, while those getting the help say they are thankful. “This is the best food pantry to come to during the holiday season cause they give you enough food to last a whole month and we really appreciate it,” said Woods.Filed under: Local, News Tagged: central ohio, christmas, food drive, giving back, local, news
|Power fully restored at Atlanta's international airportWBNS 10TV / 13 h. 35 min. ago more|
ATLANTA — Minutes after its midnight deadline to get the electricity back on at the world's busiest airport, Georgia Power announced early Monday that power had been fully restored to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, where more than 1,000 flights were grounded just days before the start of the Christmas travel rush.A sudden power outage caused by a fire in an underground electrical facility brought the airport to a standstill.Georgia Power said on its Twitter page that "Power has been restored on all concourses. 5,000+ meals are being delivered to passengers. Trains will be operational soon."Here is the latest from Georgia Power:Power restored for all essential activities atHartsfield-Jackson International Airport pic.twitter.com/3oHcky3byM— Georgia Power (@GeorgiaPower) December 18, 2017Passengers at the airport were left in the dark when the lights went out at around 1 p.m. The outage halted all outgoing flights, and arriving planes were held on the ground at their point of departure. International flights were being diverted, officials said.Mayor Kasim Reed tweeted Sunday night that all passengers had been safely deplaned and that power had been restored to the airport.Update: All power has been fully restored. #atlairport— Kasim Reed (@KasimReed) December 18, 2017The City of Atlanta said on its Twitter page that it would provide shuttle service to the Georgia Convention Center for travelers in need of a place to stay and Chick-fil-A would be provided.The City of Atlanta has mobilized the Georgia International Convention Center and will provide shuttle services for anyone who needs a place to stay for the night. @ChickfilA will provide food for passengers.— City of Atlanta, GA (@Cityofatlanta) December 18, 2017Delta passenger Emilia Duca, 32, was on her way to Wisconsin from Bogota, Colombia, when she got stuck in Atlanta. She said police made passengers who were in the baggage-claim area move to a higher floor. She said restaurants and shops were closed. Vending machines weren't working."A lot of people are arriving, and no one is going out. No one is saying anything official. We are stuck here," she said. "It's a nightmare."Adding to the nightmare are what some passengers said was a lack of information from airport officials and help from first responders to get the disabled and the elderly through the airport without the use of escalators and elevators."They had these elderly people, handicapped people lined up in wheelchairs, said stranded passenger Rutia Curry. "The people were helpless, they can't get down the stairs, it was just a nightmare."Passenger James Beatty said there was no real method for evacuation."I mean there was 40 or 50 people per the terminal area that were confined to wheelchairs and some that couldn't get through the airport very well, some of them actually couldn't walk and there was no plan at all to get them out of here without any power."Beatty said passengers carried those who used wheelchairs down stairs.Delta, with its biggest hub operation in Atlanta, will be hardest hit. By evening, Delta had already canceled almost 900 Sunday flights and another 300 on Monday, nearly all of them in Atlanta, according to tracking service FlightAware.com.Delta customers flying to or from Atlanta can make a one-time change to travel plans without incurring a $200 change fee. The airline also encouraged travelers not to pick up their bags on Monday because of anticipated congestion at the airport.Robert Mann, an aviation consultant and former American Airlines executive, said it likely will be Tuesday before Delta's operations in Atlanta return to normal, and for passengers "it could be most of the week" because there aren't many open seats on other flights in the last week before Christmas."Tomorrow is going to be a long and difficult day for everybody," Mann said.One bit of good news, according to Mann: Delta has more spare planes and available crews in Atlanta than anywhere else, which will help it to recover.Still, when flights at Atlanta were grounded for most of one day last spring, it took Delta five days — and about 4,000 canceled flights — before it fully recovered.Like Sunday's outage, that April storm hit Delta's largest hub at a busy travel time when there weren't many empty seats to accommodate customers from canceled flights. At the time, CEO Ed Bastian vowed that Delta would make "significant improvements" to its system for scheduling and tracking aircraft crews to recover more quickly from disruptions.Other airlines also canceled flights for the rest of Sunday. American Airlines canceled 24 departures and an equal number of arrivals, said spokesman Ross Feinstein. The airline also diverted three planes that were headed to Atlanta when the outage struck, sending them instead to Dallas, Nashville and back to Philadelphia.The FAA said it would staff the airport control tower throughout the night so that it can handle flights once they resume. The FAA said the tower could operate normally but flights were affected because airport equipment in the terminals was not working.According to a Georgia Power statement, a fire in an underground electrical facility may have been responsible for the outage. The cause of the fire was not known."No personnel or passengers were in danger at any time," the statement said.No areas outside of the airport were affected by the power loss. The utility said that there are "many redundant systems in place" to ensure the power supply to the airport and that such outages at the airport "are very rare."That wasn't enough to comfort Jeff Smith, 46, of Pittsburgh, who ended up stuck in a plane on the tarmac for three hours after it landed."This is the worst experience I've ever had at an airport," he said.Sara Melillo, who was traveling to Pittsburgh from Kenya, where she lives with her husband, Greg Presto, to spend Christmas with his family were stuck on the tarmac for six hours. The couple had made stops in Nairobi and Amsterdam and landed shortly after the lights went out in Atlanta.She said the pilot didn't have a lot of information for the travelers but the plane had air conditioning and attendants offered water and juice a few times. She described the Delta terminal as "big chaos" with not enough customer service for the hundreds of people trying to find a flight to their next destination and a place to sleep for the night.With her new boarding pass handwritten and her bags still stuck on a plane, Melillo was hopeful that she and her husband would be able to get a flight in the morning to Pittsburgh, she said as she waited for an Uber to take them to a hotel.Airport workers were distributing bottled water, and Dunkin' Donuts was giving out doughnuts.Officer Lisa Bender of the Atlanta Police Department said officers were at the airport to help with crowd control and managing traffic around the airport.At Southwest Airlines, about 70 Atlanta departures out of 120 scheduled for Sunday were canceled, an airline spokesman said in an email. United Airlines and JetBlue Airways were among carriers reporting delays or cancellations.Mozell Smith, 58, of Atlanta, arrived at the airport hours after the electricity went off. He was headed to Las Vegas with a sister and a friend."This is terrible. I wish someone would've given us a heads-up before we got to the airport," he said. "I wish there would have been better communication."American Airlines reported only a handful of diversions and cancellations because the carrier does not use Atlanta as a hub, airline spokeswoman Alexis Aran Coello.Hartsfield-Jackson, which serves 104 million passengers a year, is the world's busiest airport, a distinction it has held since 1998.The airport serves an average of 275,000 passengers daily, according to its website. Nearly 2,500 planes arrive and depart each day.
|Candidates lining up to run for Tiberi's seat in Congress, special election yet to be scheduledNBC4i.com / 13 h. 45 min. ago more|
CENTRAL OHIO (WCMH) — Candidates are lining up for a soon-to-be-open seat in the House of Representatives for Ohio’s 12th district, but the special election to replace retiring Representative Pat Tiberi could still be several months away. The Secretary of State’s office said it cannot schedule the special election for the seat until Tiberi actually resigns. In October, Tiberi announced he will be stepping down to spend more time with his family and pursue other opportunities. “There’s a part of this job that’s pretty grueling and you miss a lot of family time and you miss a lot of your kids,” Tiberi said. “There’s things more important than being a Congressman and one of those is being a dad.” Tiberi also said there has been some frustration trying to work on big issues — like health care — in Congress. He has yet to specify a date for his resignation but said it would be some time before the end of January. Current and former politicians have already announced they are in the running for Tiberi’s seat. Republican state senators Troy Balderson of Zanesville and Kevin Bacon of Minerva Park both plan on running for the office. Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien also plans to run for the seat on the Republican ticket, as well as former Marine Brandon Grisez and local real estate investor Jon Halverstadt. Five Democrats are also pursuing the seat, including former Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott, retired health care professional Doug Wilson, Galena farmer John Russell, businessman and Army veteran Ed Albertson, and Marion native John Peters. Ohio’s 12th district includes Delaware, Zanesville, Newark, Mansfield and Dublin.Filed under: Elections, Local, National, News Tagged: brandon grisez, congress, doug wilson, ed albertson, house of representatives, john peters, john russell, jon halverstadt, Kevin Bacon, ohio 12th district, pat tiberi, pat tiberi resigning, special election, troy balderson, Zach Scott

|Columbus Division of Fire offers fire prevention tips for the holidaysNBC4i.com / 14 h. 57 min. ago more|
COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Columbus Division of Fire crews were busy Saturday morning, responding to two serious fires within two hours of each other. The first fire, on North Broadway sent three adults to the hospital. Two of them were treated for minor smoke inhalation and an adult male was taken to OSU Wexner Medical Center with first and second-degree burns on 25% of his body. The second fire claimed a life on Keeler Drive. Battalion Chief Steve Martin with the Columbus Divison of Fire said the fire started in the kitchen and investigators ruled it as an accidental fire. “It appeared that the resident began to cook some food on the stove in the kitchen and went back and laid down and fell asleep,” he said. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, cooking is the leading cause of all house fires in the winter. Martin said that if you’re cooking, you need to try to find ways to remind yourself that the stove is on. “Set a timer on the microwave to beep after five minutes,” he said. Martin said the house had no working smoke alarms, which is something firefighters see more often than they would like. “Thirty percent of the fires we roll up on we would not heir the chirping or the alarms going off,” Martin said. He said everyone needs to check their smoke detectors at least once a month and that it could be the difference between life and death. The holidays can be a particularly challenging time for fire departments. CFD says that US fire departments responded to an average of 840 fires started by holiday decorations and an average of 200 fires that started with Christmas trees each year between 2011 and 2015. The department is currently running a “12 Days of Fire Safety” campaign on social media, sharing tips to help people prevent fires throughout the season.

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A Columbus Police Officer and a tow truck driver were injured by a suspected impaired driver Saturday night on Interstate 670. According to the Columbus Division of Police, Officer Don Paden was assisting a stranded motorist on I-670 west near Neil Avenue around 11:30pm. Officer Paden parked his cruiser behind the disabled vehicle and turned on the cruiser’s lights and CVS and requested a tow truck. When the tow truck arrived and began to remove the disabled vehicle from the scene, another vehicle traveling west on I-670 drifted out of its lane and rear-ended Officer Paden’s cruiser, forcing the cruiser to move forward and hit both the tow truck and the tow truck’s driver. The driver of the tow truck sustained a leg injury from the accident and Officer Paden was taken to Grant Medical Center with minor injuries. Officer Paden was released from the hospital early Sunday morning. The driver of the vehicle that struck Officer Paden’s cruiser was taken into custody on suspicion of OVI.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Campaign finance records show that pharmaceutical companies spent nearly $57 million in their successful effort to defeat a ballot issue on drug pricing in Ohio. The Columbus Dispatch reports that campaign finance records filed Friday show that supporters of the issue seeking to cap the price of drugs bought by the state were outspent more than 3-to-1 at just over $17 million. The drug plan opposition set a record for campaign spending on a single statewide ballot issue. Financial backers of a successful campaign to bring casino gambling to Ohio spent $47 million in 2009. The second issue on the ballot known as Marsy’s Law, a crime victims’ bill of rights, was approved with virtually no opposition. Still, its supporters spent nearly $10 million on their campaign.Filed under: Local, News

|The Newspaper Revolution has begunThe Columbus Post / 32 d. 8 h. 36 min. ago more|
CLICK IMAGE TO WATCH VIDEO. STAFF REPORT Columbus Post An Idea that was thought of by a former Knight Ridder (KRI) newspaper executive back in 1983 has led to the creation of a technological process that will Revolutionize and possibly “save” the Newspaper Industry! Alan W. Sorter, now publisher & president of the Columbus Post Newspaper in Columbus, Ohio and Herman Raymond Thornton, manager of operations for the Columbus Post have created a business- to-business technological process that has/will change the way all newspapers and other print products will be produced and distributed for the next 400-500 years. The Electronic Home Delivery Program AKA The Chloe Process will Revolutionize the Newspaper production, presentation and distribution system by using a digital format to print and produce, and a digital platform to electronically dis- tribute a home-delivered newspaper directly to a reader via that person’s Email Address, anywhere in the world. Imagine no more wet newspapers, or send outs (2nd newspaper delivered to same customer for a mis-delivered news- paper) by car. Now to deliver up to 500,000 newspapers can be done in less than30minutes. And there are no more flat tires, broken down cars and trucks, ware- houses, printing presses, newsprint, ink and production plants needed, resulting in a very significant reduction in operating costs to run a Newspaper. Now, with the B- B Chloe technological process you just need a desk top computer or laptop, or tablet or smartphone to get everything required to produce, print, and distribute your newspapers via home delivery by Email to your readers. Sorter says his original goal was just to “make the newspaper ‘talk!'” Now, we have created a process that will Revolutionize and possibly save an entire Industry. Sorter says he knew making the newspaper ’talk’ would finally allow newspapers to compete with TV for video advertising (TV Commercials) and compete with Radio for Audio Advertising (Radio commercials). Now, in addition to selling print Ads, Newspapers will be able to do much of what TV does and show it in the newspaper, and what Radio does and play it in the newspaper. There is a New game in town, and the Chloe Process is Queen! Back in the day’ Sorter says he was an avid watcher of the Jetsons and would often sit and dream of things he could invent after watching an episode of The Jetsons. Then Sorter says, at a KRI marketing conference where he was speaking he mentioned his thought to one day “make the newspaper ‘talk!'” He says one of the conference participants said loudly that ‘this guy is crazy if he thinks he can make a newspaper talk.’ Sorter says he has always been a person driven by challenges and other people’s doubts and said it was then he told himself that he would not quit on that idea until he achieved that goal. At that time in 1983 when Sorter thought of his idea there were no comprehensive technology platforms in existence that could possibly make such an idea come true. That all changed many years later after 1999 with an accelerated technology evolution that continues today. Sorter says after the modern Internet was born back in the late 1980s, early 1990s his idea sharpened, and later in the early 2000s when digital distribution platforms like MailChimp came into Existence he began to realize that one day his dream of making the Newspaper talk could become a reality. Sorter says, 20 years after he first publicly revealed his desire, he bought the Columbus Post Newspaper in Columbus, OH which is where he met the guy he calls an IT Master talent, Herman Thornton “one of the best minds,” Sorter says, in the Information Systems Industry. Sorter and his IT Master Thornton got real serious in 2014-15 and began working daily to develop a way to “make the Newspaper ‘talk!'” Sorter says after years of trying everything he and Thornton could think of and just as he was beginning to think he would never make his dream come true, his mother got sick and passed away in February 2014. Sorter said he was so broken by her passing that he became consumed with the thought of achieving his dream and would stay awake 24 hours a day thinking of his dream and calling Thornton to discuss new things to try on his idea to get it to work. Sorter says he and Thornton had a break- through on the idea after Sorter prayed to GOD to give them an answer to an obstacle they had run into. Focused on it day and night and wanting to make his mother proud, and Sorter said he couldn’t quit and he didn’t.

|Trump Tax Plan: Corporations Win, Individual Voters LoseThe Columbus Post / 57 d. 16 h. 27 min. ago more|
By Marcy Gordon Wire Service Correspondent WASHINGTON (AP) – Millions of Americans would lose a prized tax break under President Donald Trump’s sweeping revamp of the tax code, but corporations would get to keep it. The Republican proposal would eliminate the federal deduction for state and local taxes, a widely popular break used by some 44 million Americans, especially in high-tax, Democratic-leaning states like New York, New Jersey, California and Illinois. But corporations, which pay billions in local property levies and state income taxes, wouldn’t be affected. Republicans are determined to overhaul the nation’s tax system by year’s end, offering a plan that lowers the corporate tax rate from 36 percent to 20 percent and reduces the number of tax brackets. Trump and the GOP cast the plan as a boon to the middle class. Meeting at the White House on Wednesday with members of the tax-writing Senate Finance Committee, Trump said, “this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, in my opinion.” Democratic members of the committee remained united in opposition to the current plan, said Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, the top Democrat. He said their message to the president was: “You fix it (the tax system) with real tax relief that helps the middle class. You don’t give tax cuts to people like him (Trump).” Toward the end of the meeting, Trump issued a thinly veiled threat to Democratic senators, according to Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. Most of the Democratic members of the tax-writing Senate Finance Committee who were invited are up for re-election next year in states Trump won in 2016. Brown is among them. Brown said Trump told them, “I couldn’t imagine being a Democrat and running in 2018 having voted against” the GOP tax legislation. The plan is still evolving with lawmakers filling in the blanks, but the proposed repeal of the state and local deduction has divided Republicans. Ending the deduction would affect individuals and companies unevenly. If Amazon, now being frantically courted by dozens of cities, decided to locate its new second headquarters in Westchester County north of New York City, an affluent suburban area in one of the highest-tax states, the tech commerce behemoth still would be able to claim state and local taxes as a regular business expense, on par with items like buying machine parts. But the company’s employees living in the area wouldn’t be so lucky: They’d take a financial hit from losing the ability to deduct their state and local taxes from their federal income calculations. Trump and his Republican partners in the nearly $6 trillion tax overhaul plan push back against the idea that it would benefit mainly wealthy people and corporations. And they say the rest of the country shouldn’t have to subsidize wealthier states like California and New York whose residents use the state and local tax deduction in large numbers. Defenders of the state-local deduction, including several GOP House members, say repealing it would hurt low- to mid-income taxpayers, subject them to being taxed twice and enable a federal revenue grab on the backs of homeowners who pay property taxes. The bare-bones tax framework leaves a pack of details to be determined by Congress. Yet the blueprint as written indicates that the deduction of expenses deemed an “ordinary and necessary” cost of doing business would mostly remain, and would continue to include state and local tax payments. The only business deduction specifically set for elimination is one that allows U.S. manufacturers to deduct costs related to production such as building plants. Several experts confirmed that reading of the tax framework, including Steven Rosenthal, a senior fellow at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. Rosenthal, who previously worked as legislative counsel to Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation, said he expects lawmakers to continue to allow the business expense deduction. As with many aspects of the Republican tax plan, “the money basically goes to corporations and big business. It’s unfair,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., a member of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. To be sure, small businesses too can deduct state and local taxes as business expenses. But many more billions of dollars are at stake for large corporations, especially those with plants and operations in high-tax states. Trump and the tax plan’s Republican architects eye the roughly $1.3 trillion in lost revenue over 10 years that the state and local tax deduction costs the government. They want to recoup it to help pay for the deep tax cuts, especially for business, proposed in the far-reaching plan. At its core, the overall plan would double the standard deduction, to $12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for families; dramatically cut taxes for corporations and potentially for individuals; shrink the number of personal income brackets; and simplify the tax system. Trump and the Republican leaders promise that the plan would benefit middle-class families by lowering tax rates, creating new jobs and sparking economic growth. But there are too many gaps in the proposal to know how it actually would affect individual taxpayers and families, how it would be paid for and how much it might add to the soaring $20 trillion national debt. The chief architects of the tax plan in Congress say nothing is written in stone. Spokeswomen for the leaders, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who heads the Senate Finance Committee, declined to comment specifically on the divergent treatment for companies on state and local taxes. They did point to earlier statements by the two Republican leaders indicating that everything in the tax framework is subject to change. Hatch will work with members of his committee to examine all aspects of the plan and decide on possible changes, said spokeswoman Julia Lawless. Brady has signaled willingness to compromise on full repeal of the state and local deduction.
