                        Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene will be the featured speaker of the Wilson County Republican Party Trump Day Dinner to be held Thursday, October 7 at the Farm Bureau Expo Center on East Baddour Parkway in Lebanon. The provocative freshman and member of the House Freedom Caucus, Greene serves Georgia’s 14th District in the U.S. House which sits to the northwest of Atlanta and just south of Chattanooga, Tennessee and includes the cities of Dalton and Rome. Shortly after being sworn in, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats along with 11 Republicans voted to remove Greene from the Education and Budget committees to which she was appointed. Greene used the extra time she had on her hands not having to attend committee meetings to learn House rules and procedures.  She has put that knowledge to use by calling for roll call votes on bills that would normally be voted on by voice votes, earning her criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike. Greene appeared at former President Donald Trump’s rally...
    Santa Clara County Sheriff/San Mateo County Sheriff Arlis Perry (top left), Leslie Perlov (bottom left) and Janet Taylor were three women killed in slayings known as the Stanford murders. Janet Ann Taylor, Leslie Marie Perlov and Arlis Perry were three women who were murdered in 1973 and 1974 in slayings that came to be known as the Stanford murders. However, decades later, investigators determined the women were killed by two different men, Stephen Blake Crawford and John Arthur Getreu. Stephen Blake Crawford was identified as the prime suspect in the death of Perry in 2018, who was found brutally murdered in a church at Stanford October 13, 1974. John Arthur Getreu was arrested in the murders of Taylor and Perlov around the same time. DNA evidence linked the men to the murders decades after the cases had gone cold.

    San Mateo County Sheriff John Arthur Getreu. John Arthur Getreu is jailed in San Mateo County today after he was found guilty at trial in the murder of Janet Ann Taylor. He is also awaiting trial in the murder of Leslie Marie Perlov, another woman who was murdered in a series of 1970s murders that came to be known as the “Stanford murders.” Getreu is now 77. The murders of three women in 1973 and 1974 went cold for decades until DNA evidence linked Getreu to the murders of Taylor and Leslie Marie Perlov. He is also scheduled to face trial Perlov’s murder. Getreu was an employee at Stanford University at the time of the murders, according to The Mercury News. A second suspect, Stephen Blake Crawford, was linked to the murder of Arlis Perry, also committed around Stanford University within a 19-month period, according to ABC News.

    WINFIELD, Ill. (CBS) — Bat bites are on the rise in DuPage County, with the county health department saying at least five bats have tested positive for rabies recently. As CBS 2’s Jackie Kostek reported Tuesday night, a total of 55 people were also told they should get treatment for potential exposure.

    OAKLAND — An Alameda County judge ordered a former San Leandro police officer to stand trial on manslaughter charges in the killing of a 33-year-old man last year, even as he expressed doubt a jury would ever return a guilty verdict. Ex-Ofc. Jason Fletcher charged last year in the April 2020 killing of 33-year-old Steven Taylor, whom Fletcher shot as Taylor grasped a bat a few steps away from Fletcher inside of a Walmart. Alameda County prosecutors charged him under a change in state law that says police shootings must be necessary, and argued that Fletcher didn’t bother to attempt deescalation before shooting Taylor once in the chest after other officers Tasered Taylor multiple times. The decision by Superior Court Judge Don C. Clay came after a two-day preliminary hearing, that saw expert witnesses from both sides give their take on the killing. Clay called the case a “battle of the experts,” adding that while he found sufficient prosecution evidence to meet the low standard required for preliminary hearings, he doubted a jury would convict Fletcher in a trial with...
    Two Orange County extremists — a former police chief and his partner in organizing Stop the Steal rallies — have been indicted along with members of the Three Percenters militia for their roles in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. Alan Hostetter, the former chief of the La Habra police department, was indicted along with fellow Californians Russell Taylor, Erik Scott Warner, Felipe Antonio “Tony” Martinez, Derek Kinnison and Ronald Mele on multiple charges. Though all are charged with being in restricted areas of the Capitol, Warner is the sole indictee to be accused of entering the building, via a broken window. Kinnison and Warner are charged with destroying evidence, while Taylor also faces a weapons count for carrying a knife with a blade longer than 3 inches. The grand jury indictment, unsealed Thursday, alleges the men conspired on social media prior to the riot — including on a Telegram channel dubbed Answer the Call and via text messages — creating travel plans that included discussion of bringing weapons to the Capitol. On the day of the riot, they...

    A judge has rejected a request by a former police officer to change the venue of his trial in the killing of Breonna Taylor. Brett Hankison's attorney argued the jury pool in Jefferson County, Kentucky, has been tainted by an 'avalanche' of negative publicity, ABC News reported. Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Ann Bailey Smith ruled that moving trial at this point is premature, but cautioned she remains open to granting the request if it becomes apparent an impartial jury cannot be seated in Louisville. Hankison was indicted in September on three felony counts of wanton endangerment for firing errant shots that penetrated a wall in Taylor's apartment and entered a neighboring residence occupied by three people. Hankinson pleaded not guilty to the charges and is scheduled to go on trial in August.  Emergency room technician Breonna Taylor was killed emergency room technician in her home on March 13, 2020, by Louisville, Kentucky, police officers executing a search warrant Former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison was indicted in September on three felony counts of wanton endangerment for firing errant shots...
    Police are seeking a 20-year-old Union County man who shot and killed his girlfriend at his house over the weekend, authorities said. Jamar I. Webber, of Union Township, is facing charges of first-degree murder and two related weapons offenses in connection with the death of 19-year-old Malikah Taylor of Newark, Acting Union County Prosecutor Lyndsay V. Ruotolo said Monday. Police officers found Malikah Taylor on the 2100 block of Melrose Parkway with serious injuries early Sunday morning, Ruotolo said. Taylor, of Newark, was rushed to University Hospital in Newark, where she was pronounced dead shortly before 8 a.m., Ruotolo previously said alongside Union Police Department Director Daniel Zieser. Webber was later identified as a suspect by the Union County Homicide Task Force and other local agencies. He has been known to frequent the area of South 17th through South 20th streets along Clinton Avenue in Newark, authorities said. After the photo was taken, Webber had a tattoo of the initials “LV” on his forehead.  Anyone who encounters Webber should consider him potentially armed and dangerous, and immediately call 911 instead of...
    COLUMBIA, Md. (WJZ) — Snow returned to Maryland Sunday, and the multi-day event continued to dump fresh flakes across the region on Monday. From Carroll County to Harford County, many Marylanders WJZ spoke with Monday said they were enjoying seeing significant snow for the first time in a while. “We really missed the snow actually. It’s nice to see. It’s beautiful,” Lisa Gyory told WJZ in Anne Arundel County. For many essential workers, their duties continued despite the storm. In Anne Arundel County, public works crews were on the job since dawn. “We’ve been out since 5:45 this morning,” Marvin Lee told photojournalist Allen Cork, Sr., in Anne Arundel County. Roads at that time were passable, Lee said. An influx of snow-related calls forced emergency dispatchers in the county to redirect callers to specific district numbers. The Emergency Dispatch Center is experiencing high call volume. Snow related calls may be directed to the appropriate road district.

    Sign up for The Brief, our daily newsletter that keeps readers up to speed on the most essential Texas news. Six years ago, Collin County was so solidly Republican that many of its representatives in Austin and Washington didn’t even draw Democratic opponents. Now three of them find themselves in their most competitive November races yet. It is one sign of how quickly the political environment has shifted in the suburban county north of Dallas, which is now an emerging battleground important to understanding Texas in 2020. Unlike some suburban counties in 2018, Collin did not flip in statewide results — but a once-overwhelming GOP advantage continued to narrow and next week’s election could be the tipping point. “It’s just changed,” said Sharon Hirsch, the Democrat challenging state Rep. Matt Shaheen, R-Plano. “It’s no surprise — it’s growing, it’s becoming more diverse, we have a highly educated population. They’re focused on basic issues like great schools and safe communities and health care. They’re not focused on the fringe-right issues, and that’s where our representation is right now, and I think...
    Barbara Jo Kammer finds therapy in music, and in better times, she and her band, The Hippie Buckaroos, can often be found playing to the residents of senior homes in and around Boulder County. Of course, COVID-19 has made that next to impossible. The Lafayette resident didn't want to let a global pandemic stop her from helping others. She's taken her act solo and plays just outside the window for elders, many of whom are stuck inside and in need of a distraction. "I've been working with elders as a music therapist since I graduated from Naropa in 2000," Kammer says. "It's been a wonderful experience for the elders, for the staff and for us especially." The past few weeks have even made playing outside a bit of a challenge because the smoke from nearby fires and those in California have forced many senior homes to close their windows.
