    RICHMOND — A South San Francisco man has been sentenced to 45 years to life in prison for killing a married couple in a wrong-way collision on Interstate 80. Michael Verette, 31, was convicted in August of murdering Tyra Ann Chappell, 52, of American Canyon, and Frederic Chappell, 76, of Vallejo, in the December 2019 collision. Both victims were in a 2000 Toyota pickup truck heading east on Interstate 80 when a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer going west on the Appian Way exit slammed into them, according to the California Highway Patrol. According to authorities, Verette was headed eastbound on I-80 when he sped past a California Highway Patrol car, then reversed its course and got back on I-80 going west, exiting at Appian Way. He allegedly told a passenger he wasn’t going back to jail. The charging records said Verette racked up 11 prior convictions for driving with a suspended or revoked license, all in 2013 and 2014. Deputy district attorney Derek Butts, who prosecuted the case, said Judge Charles Bowen noted the need to dissuade others from dangerous driving...
    Arizona’s attorney general on Friday launched an attempt to immediately halt a Biden administration COVID-19 vaccine mandate as a lawsuit filed last month moves forward.  Mark Brnovich claimed it was a critical step need to protect millions of public university employees, federal staff, and contractors who are being forced to get their first round of the vaccine or be dismissed.  'Once a vaccine has been administered, it can never be undone,' he said.  'The COVID-19 vaccine mandate is one of the greatest infringements upon individual liberty, federalism, and the separation of powers by any administration in our country’s history.'

The homeowner was sent to Johns Hopkins Bayview for treatment of his burn injuries.

    Deontay Wilder has insisted that he was not knocked out by Tyson Fury during their grudge rematch in February 2020, claiming that his 'weak' former trainer was to blame for the defeat. Wilder, 35, was outclassed by the Gypsy King over seven rounds in Las Vegas when they met 20 months ago, suffering two knockdowns before his trainer, Mark Breland, threw in the towel to end the Bronze Bomber's misery. The Alabama knockout artist returns to the ring this Saturday night in pursuit of his former WBC title, having been widely criticised for making a series of lamentable excuses for his only career defeat, including accusations that Fury cheated and that his ringwalk costume was too heavy.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday insisted there was no decision to change the administration's face mask policy. She was countering a report the administration was considering urging vaccinated Americans to start wearing masks again given the rising number of COVID cases due to the Delta variant. 'There has been no decision to change our mask guidelines,' Psaki said at her press briefing. 'Any decision would come from the CDC,' she noted. 'No one who has been vaccinated is being advised to wear a mask,' she said for added emphasis.  Psaki acknowledged there are ongoing conversations about the COVID pandemic and how to handle the rising case numbers that consider multiple factors.  'We never said that battle was over,' she noted. 'It should be more concerning to you, the American people, if we were not having those conversations.'  The White House has used the argument that vaccinated people don't need to wear  a face mask as a way to encourage people to get their shot.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki insisted there was no decision to change...
    A U.S. Army washout who identified as a so-called involuntary celibate plotted to “slaughter” women in a mass shooting at an unnamed Ohio university, with an ultimate goal of killing some 3,000 people in all after receiving his military training, according to an indictment unsealed in federal court. Tres Genco, 21, was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of attempting to commit a hate crime and one count of illegally possessing a machine gun, prosecutors announced. He described himself as an “incel,” which court filings describe as someone who advocates “violence in support of their belief that women unjustly deny them sexual or romantic attention to which they believe they are entitled.” Genco was allegedly inspired by California “incel” Elliot Rodger, who in 2014 killed six people and injured 14 in a series of deadly attacks outside a Santa Barbara sorority house. Rodger has become a twisted hero of sorts to other angry young men, including Genco, according to the indictment. Last year, a Virginia man who wrote in a note that he wanted to “make a statement like...
    Peter Cade | Getty Images While inheriting money is typically a good thing, newer individual retirement account rules may leave some heirs with a smaller windfall. Thanks to the Secure Act of 2019, certain heirs now have less time to take IRA withdrawals. The law stopped the so-called stretch IRA, which allowed non-spouse beneficiaries to "stretch" distributions over their lifetime. The new law, applying to IRAs inherited on Jan. 1, 2020, or after, requires some heirs to deplete accounts within 10 years and they may owe levies on distributions, known as the "10-year rule."  More from Personal Finance:'Inflation is the silent killer,' as many retirees are feeling the stingState-run 'auto IRAs' are gaining steam as a retirement savings solutionCongress wants to make more changes to the U.S. retirement system These guidelines may place a tax burden on higher earners or those receiving large balances, financial experts say.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — A plea to find the person who killed 53-year-old Chris Urbina. He was murdered nearly a year ago in the middle of the day in a River Grove forest preserve.

    Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbot signed a bill Tuesday that specifies how history, race and current events should be covered in schools. The law prohibits a curriculum where “an individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of the individual’s race or sex,” according to Texas Legislature Online. The term Critical Race Theory (CRT) is not used in the House Bill 3979, but it addresses many concerns that GOP leaders have expressed about the curriculum. It prohibits teachings that assert individuals bear responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the individual’s same race or sex or that an individual is inherently racist, sexist or oppressive by virtue of their race or sex, the bill says. CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches students to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies. CRT has come under fire, specifically from conservative lawmakers for teaching that individuals are at fault for society’s problems...
    During an interview that aired Friday with Keir Simmons of NBC News, Russian President Vladimir Putin called former President Donald Trump an extraordinary, talented and colorful individual. Simmons said, “President Vladimir Putin tells us he’s going into next week’s summit with relations with the U.S. at an historic low.” Putin said, “We have a bilateral relationship that has deteriorated to its lowest point in recent years.” Simmons said, “You once described President Trump as a bright person, talented how would you describe President Biden?” Putin said, “Well, even now, I believe that former U.S. president Mr. Trump is an extraordinary individual, talented individual. Otherwise, he would not have become U.S. president. He is a colorful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn’t come from the U.S. establishment. He had not been part of big-time politics before, and some like it, some don’t like it, but that is a fact.” He added, “President Biden, of course is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin had laudatory words for President Trump, whom he praised as an "extraordinary individual," and only a bland comment on President Biden, who he called a "career man" in politics.  But Putin also said he doesn’t expect any "impulsed-based movements" out of the plainer man, Biden.  "I believe that former U.S. president Mr. Trump is an extraordinary individual, talented individual, otherwise he would not have become U.S. President," Putin told NBC News in his first interview with a U.S. news network since 2018. "He is a colorful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn't come from the U.S. establishment, he had not been part of big-time politics before, and some like it some don’t like it but that is a fact." An excerpt from the interview appeared Friday on NBC's Nightly News with Lester Holt. Biden, meanwhile, "is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man. He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics," according to Putin.  "That's a different kind of person, and it is my great hope...

    (CBS Local)– It’s been almost 50 years since the Vietnam War ended and it is still one of the most fascinating times in our nation’s history to examine. While many studied the war in school or have family members who served overseas, one of the overlooked groups of people in the narrative about the war are the U.S. Air Force pilots. A new special from the Smithsonian Channel called “100 Missions: Surviving Vietnam” airs on Monday, November 9 at 8 p.m. EST/PST and it follows a special group of U.S. Air Force fighter pilots who put their lives on the line for the country. Dr. Michael Hankins, who is a curator of U.S. Air Force history, is one of the people interviewed in the special and he believes the stories of these pilots will resonate deeply with the audience.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the decision for families to gather together for Thanksgiving during the coronavirus pandemic is an “individual choice.” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that while Thanksgiving is a “beautiful tradition” of bringing families together, he cautioned that this year will be different than others. “People have to make their individual choice, particularly who you have in your home. Are they vulnerable people? Are they elderly? Are they people with underlying conditions?” Fauci said during a Thursday interview with Yahoo News. “It’s such a beautiful tradition, Thanksgiving, of getting family together,” he continued. “I think we just need to realize things might be different this year, particularly if you want to have people who are going to be flying in from a place that has a lot of infection — you’re going to an airport that might be crowded, you’re on a plane, and then to come in — unless you absolutely know you’re not infected.

    During Wednesday confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) read from Barrett’s dissent in Kanter v. Barr (2019), noting that she holds “the Second Amendment confers an individual right.” Breitbart News reported Durbin was questioning Barrett’s position on voting rights when he alluded to Kanter. The Kanter case was brought by a non-violent felon, Rickey Kanter, who fought “felon dispossession statutes” on grounds that he thought he ought not be prohibited from exercising his Second Amendment rights after paying fines and serving a year in prison for a mail fraud scheme. The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit rejected Kanter’s contention, but Barrett dissented. As Durbin noted, Barrett used her dissent to make clear that she holds Second Amendment rights to be “individual,” in nature. A careful reading of Barrett’s dissent shows her rejection of the collectivist view of the Second Amendment, which holds that the right to keep and bear arms is a “civic right” tied to militia service for the common good. Rather, she sides with the majority in...

A web of party and state election laws make provisions for how to proceed if a candidate must be replaced on the ballot.  The Election Day itself is fixed by law, and can be moved only by an act of Congress.  But there are ambiguities in all areas – from national party rules to state election law and even the line of succession – providing multiple avenues for chaos just 32 days before the Nov. 3 election.    Who is in charge of the country now? President Trump continues to be in charge, both in title and effect. The White House reports that he has mild symptoms, and there were media reports that he was lethargic...

    During a September 2019 “townhall” hosted by New Hampshire ABC affiliate WMUR, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made clear that he does not believe the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms and that the U.S. Supreme Court decision in District of Columbia v. Heller was incorrect. During the event, Biden was asked, “Do you agree with the D.C. v. Heller decision in regards to protecting the individual right to bear arms that are in common use and which are utilized for lawful purposes?” Biden responded in part, “If I were on the court I wouldn’t have made the same ruling. OK, that’s number one.” Later, the noted resume padder and law school plagiarist boasted, And I taught for years Constitutional law and separation of powers, I taught the Second Amendment.
