It’s critically important to the victims, our staff and our entire community that a full and transparent accounting be made,” Oxford Community Schools Superintendent Tim Throne said in his letter, according to a copy obtained by the Associated Press. “To that end, I’ve asked for a third-party investigation be conducted so we leave no stone unturned, including any and all interaction the student had with staff and students,” he added. Throne also defended the decision to keep the 15-year-old school suspect in the shooting, Ethan Crumbley, in school even after a teacher found concerning drawings he had made on the morning of the shooting and school officials subsequently met with his parents. “When the parents were asked to take...

    INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford didn’t shy away in the assessment of his performance after Los Angeles’ 28-16 loss to Tennessee on Sunday night. “I kind of settled in during the second half, but by that time I had done too much damage,” he said. A pair of Stafford interceptions in the second quarter gave Tennessee a 14-3 lead, but the veteran quarterback wasn’t the only one who had a bad night against the Titans, who have the AFC’s best record at 7-2. The Rams were penalized 12 times, which is the second-most in McVay’s four-plus seasons in charge. The 115 yards are the highest in McVay’s 73 regular-season games. Three of the Titans’ 16 first downs were via Rams’ penalties, including a pair of roughing the passing calls on the drive that culminated with Adrian Peterson’s 1-yard TD run to give Tennessee a 28-9 lead late in the fourth quarter. Jalen Ramsey appeared to be on the verge of getting ejected in the first half when he appeared to be assessed a second unsportsmanlike conduct penalty....
    As Americans continue to throw their support behind key issues and coronavirus fades, the divide between political parties across the country has deepened in the leading up to the 2022 midterms, according to a recent poll. The Reuters/Ipsos October poll showed that while issues such as coronavirus start to dissipate, members from the Democrat and Republican parties, as well as independents, have lined up behind issues, such as taxes, climate, guns, inflation, and big government. One important keep leading up the midterms, as candidates look at messaging strategies to drive their base to the polls. The poll found that nearly nine out of ten Democrats are in favor of increasing the taxes on wealthy individuals. There were also 76 percent who agree that “climate change” must be the top concern for every country, and 78 percent who think “it is too easy to access guns.” However, with Republicans, the poll found that 95 percent of Republicans favor, at the minimum, one of the “core principles” within the party: prioritizing the economy over all other issues, vigilance over inflation, tax cuts, and government deregulation. The poll also mentioned that Republicans...

    Day two of proceedings in the trial for Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Wednesday consisted largely of video showing the unrest and the events that led to the moments he was seen fatally shooting two men and wounding a third last year – including footage of a man chasing Rittenhouse and throwing a bag at him before being mortally wounded.  Prosecutors on Wednesday used video and witness testimony to recount for the jury the events of Aug. 25, 2020, which were preceded by two nights of unrest, with businesses being ransacked and set on fire. The video, played for the 20-person jury of 11 women and nine men, shows in part the man running after Rittenhouse and throwing a plastic bag at him.  Someone is heard yelling "F--- you!," followed by the sounds of the four shots Rittenhouse fired, killing Joseph Rosenbaum, though the shooting itself is not clearly seen on camera. Rosenbaum was the first of three men Rittenhouse shot that night, two of them fatally. KYLE RITTENHOUSE WAS 'FREAKING OUT,' SAID PEOPLE ‘WERE TRYING TO HURT HIM,’...
    The insurrection on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 was not a spur of the moment or spontaneous outbreak of protestors at a rally, it was a months-long planned event with a stunning number of alarms that could have prevented it. After an exhaustive investigation, The Washington Post uncovered documents, videos, photos, social media posts, interviews, and audio recordings, all leading to the fact that there were hundreds of warnings prior to the Jan. 6 riot. And that the event was spurred on by twice-impeached, one-term President Donald Trump and woefully unprepared local and federal agencies. Evidence that the riot was planned far in advance came from a whistleblower who contacted the FBI as far back as Dec. 20 to inform them that Trump supporters were chatting online about how to sneak guns into Washington, “overrun” police and arrest members of Congress. The whistleblower added that those online were under the delusion that they had “orders from the President” and used code words to plan what weapons to bring and where to meet across the nation to caravan into the...
    On October 21, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to hold former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon in criminal contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena from Speaker Nancy Pelosi's select committee on the January 6 insurrection. Many far-right MAGA Republicans view Bannon as a martyr, but critics view him as an insurrectionist. And an article by Media Matters' Madeline Peltz this week takes a damning and in-depth look at what Bannon had to say on his "War Room" podcast in the days leading up to January 6. "In the days before the January 6 insurrection, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon bragged on his podcast about his behind-the-scenes efforts to undermine the results of the 2020 presidential election," Peltz explains. "These claims include calls and meetings he joined with conservative lawyer John Eastman and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who were then running the Trump legal team's 'war room' out of the Willard Hotel in Downtown Washington, D.C., where allies conspired to advance crackpot legal theories and misinformation campaigns aimed at stealing the 2020 presidential election from Joe Biden."...
    KIRILL KUDRYAVTSEV/AFP via Getty Images Multiple news outlets dropped stunning reports Friday night on internal Facebook documents. A consortium of news outlets has been going through thousands of documents provided by whistleblower Frances Haugen, and the first batch of reports Friday concern internal concerns at Facebook about how the company was handling the proliferation of misinformation about the 2020 election. Before and after election day, and for weeks afterwards, then-President Donald Trump and some of his key allies made a number of false and conspiratorial claims about the 2020 election, culminating in the riots at the Capitol on January 6. Haugen has claimed that Facebook “misled investors and the public about its role perpetuating misinformation and violent extremism relating to the 2020 election and January 6th insurrection.” According to these documents, a Facebook employee sounded a warning on November 5 that “not only do we not do something about combustible election misinformation in comments, we amplify them and give them broader distribution.” Additionally, the New York Times reports, one Facebook data scientist said “10 percent of all U.S. views of...

    Getty Bears rookie running back Khalil Herbert will get the bulk of the team's carries vs Green Bay Week 6. Heading into their most important game to date, the Chicago Bears will be without running back Damien Williams, who was placed on the reserve-COVID-19 list. The team made the announcement via Twitter on October 14, and with a huge NFC North showdown against the Green Bay Packers looming on the 17th, this is a huge blow to the offense, particularly with starter David Montgomery currently on the injured reserve list. #Bears roster move: We have placed RB Damien Williams on the Reserve-COVID-19 list. — Chicago Bears (@BearsPR) October 14, 2021 Williams had 64 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries (that’s 4.0 yards per rush) in relief of Montgomery in Chicago’s Week 5 win over the Las Vegas Raiders, and he has 32 carries for 137 yards and two TDs to go with 10 receptions for 61 yards on the season.

    A look at what’s happening around the majors on Tuesday: ___ PLAY IT AGAIN All these years later, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are set to meet again at Fenway Park in an all-or-nothing game. The playoffs open this season with a tasty matchup when the longtime rivals face each other in the AL wild-card game. Yankees ace Gerrit Cole (16-8, 3.23 ERA) is set to start against ex-Yankee Nathan Eovaldi (11-9, 3.75). The teams both had their high and low points this year before finishing tied at 92-70.

    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) – Last winter Texans dealt with brutally cold temperatures and storms that lead to power outages and deaths across the state. This fall and winter, experts are warning Americans to brace for home heating cost sticker shock. Prices for natural gas, the most common way to heat homes and a leading fuel source for generating electricity, have surged more than 180% over the past 12 months to $5.90 per million British thermal units. Natural gas hasn’t been this expensive since February 2014. READ MORE: Southern Border Officials Clear Camp Of Haitian Migrants Under Del Rio International BridgeThe risk is that an early winter or extremely cold fall temperatures will force households to crank up the heat. That would further shrink the nation’s below-average stockpiles of natural gas and could lift prices even higher. “If we get an early frost, it could get ugly. It could get ugly fast,” said Robert Yawger, director of energy futures at Mizuho Securities. The natural gas spike is exacerbating the United States’ first brush with inflation in more than a dozen years....
    U.S. states with the lowest vaccination rates are recording many more deaths from COVID-19 than their highly vaccinated peers.  A DailyMail.com analysis finds that 10 states - Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wyoming - with the lowest vaccination rates accounted for 73.9 deaths per 100,000 residents, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). By comparison, the 10 states with the highest vaccination rates - Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington - recorded 18.9 deaths per 100,000 residents. That means Americans living in the least vaccinated states are dying at a rate nearly four times as high as those in the most vaccinated states.  It comes as data show three states in the South, Alabama, Georgia and Texas are responsible for one-third of the more than 10,000 deaths in the nation last week.  Experts say that fatalities are a lagging indicator and often don't start to decline until three or four weeks after cases and hospitalizations do, which means that...
    One of the final messages that Gabby Petito’s family is believed to have received from her was in the form of an "odd text" sent at the end of August, when loved ones began to grow concerned about her wellbeing, according to the state search warrant released Monday. Gabrielle Petito, 22, sent her mother, Nichole Schmidt, a text message on August 27, in which she wrote: "Can you help Stan, I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls," states the search warrant, filed in the Sarasota County Circuit Court on Friday and made public Monday.

    FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The U.S. State Department announced Tuesday that it is offering up to $5 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of a Chinese national suspected of leading an international fentanyl trafficking operation that authorities uncovered after an overdose death in North Dakota. Jian Zhang is one of a handful of Chinese and Canadian nationals among more than 30 people accused of dealing large amounts of the powerful opioid. The reward also applies to information leading to Zhang’s location. Zhang, also known as “Hong Kong Zaron,” and his biotechnical company were sanctioned by the Treasury Department in 2018, a move that was meant to prevent them from doing business with anyone in the U.S. It was the first time the department had sanctioned an alleged fentanyl trafficker. The Justice Department said its narcotics reward programs have led to the capture of more than 75 people since 1986. More than $135 million has been paid out since that time. The investigation known as “Operation Denial” began when 18-year-old Bailey Henke was found dead inside a Grand...

    One of the House Democratic lawyers during the inquiry that led to former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment has called for a “criminal investigation” of Trump’s conduct leading up to the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters. Daniel Goldman, who served as the counsel for the Democrats in the House Intelligence Committee and questioned witnesses who appeared before the committee during the 2019 impeachment inquiry against Trump, called for this move on Tuesday during Deadline: White House on MSNBC, where Goldman is now a legal analyst. This comes in the aftermath of former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen telling the Senate Judiciary Committee on Saturday that Jeffrey Clark, who was serving as Trump’s top environment lawyer at the Department of Justice, tried to get the DOJ to call on Georgia to investigate its 2020 elections results for possible voter fraud. Goldman said that there should be both a congressional and criminal probe of Trump’s conduct ahead Jan. 6. “I think Congress needs to take a very close look at what happened because Congress can and should pass laws that provide...

    (CNN)The Justice Department formally declined to assert executive privilege for potential testimony of at least some witnesses related to the January 6 Capitol attack, a person briefed on the matter said. The decision paves the way for some former Justice Department officials to testify on what they witnessed in the chaotic days between former President Donald Trump's November election loss and early January when he tried to use the Justice Department and other means to advance false claims that he won. Among the potential witnesses from which a special select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection is expected to seek testimony is Jeffrey Rosen, who was acting attorney general in late December and until the inauguration of President Joe Biden. Rosen and other Justice officials were at the center of a pressure campaign by Trump and other White House officials to back his claims of vote fraud. Frustrated that the Justice Department didn't find evidence of fraud, Trump contemplated replacing Rosen with Jeffrey Clark, another Justice Department official who signaled support for the fraud claims. Rosen and a group of...

The Blue Jays will return to Toronto for a homestand beginning July 30 after the Canadian government granted them an exemption to the U.S.-Canada travel ban. The Blue Jays haven’t played at Rogers Centre since 2019 because of coronavirus protocols. Toronto began this season hosting home games at its spring training site in Dunedin, Florida. The Blue Jays then moved to Sahlen Field, home of their Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo, in June. ON A ROLL Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks (12-4, 3.65 ERA) tries for his 11th straight win when Chicago faces Adam Wainwright (7-6, 3.61) and the rival Cardinals in St. Louis. Hendricks is the first Cubs pitcher to go at least 12 consecutive starts without a loss since Jon Lester in 2016....
    CHICAGO (CBS) — The Cubs core guys like Anthony Rizzo are playing these next couple weeks with the threat of more trades hanging over them, after Joc Pederson was already dealt this week. Pederson was traded to the Atlanta Braves on Thursday in exchange for minor leaguer Bryce Ball. Rizzo said he and the others will try to not think about it leading up to the July 30 deadline. “Right now, I think especially these next two weeks – just day to day, focusing on baseball. All the reports and rumors flying from now until then – you could probably put a full scrapbook together and see the roller coaster that it’s going to take everyone on,” Rizzo said. “So for me in my position, it’s just staying one day at a time and not really worrying about what’s going to happen. What’s going to happen’s going to happen, and none of us have any control of it.”
    CNN’s Jim Acosta said on Wednesday night there’s a “critical question” of whether Donald Trump “belongs in the slammer” for his actions trying to stay in power leading up to January 6th. Acosta was on with Chris Cuomo reacting to the stunning revelation in a new book that top military leaders were so fearful that Trump would attempt a coup that they considered resigning if Trump gave any orders they considered to be illegal. Acosta said that around the time of the insurrection, one source told him “that Trump had lost his mind,” and added that two Trump White House officials conveyed to him they think the former president is “insane.” There’s now a question of what can be done about Trump’s attempted “administrative coup, if not a bloody coup at the Capitol,” Acosta continued. I think arguably Donald Trump committed crimes on the way to January 6th. Is anything going to be done about it? Why have we not had this conversation in this country? I think it’s a critical question, Chris, whether or not the former president of...
    The collapsed Champlain Towers South building. Joe Raedle/ Getty Images Documents obtained by NPR and CNN reveal residents and the board in Surfside were fighting for months over repairs. A 2018 report found "major structural damage" in the building, prompting talk of an extensive repair project.  By 2020, the cost of the project had jumped from an estimated $9 million to more than $12 million. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Less than a year before the Champlain Towers South building collapsed, residents of the 12-story Surfside apartment and the building's condominium association board were fighting over the cost of necessary repairs, according to documents obtained by NPR and CNN. Since the apartment complex collapsed last month, leaving at least 28 dead and more than 100 still missing, an ever-growing list of red flags that plagued the building before its downfall has emerged, as the community searches for answers. In several presentations given during the fall and winter of 2020, residents and the board were shown a series of PowerPoint slides detailing the urgent need for expensive...
    (CNN)A cache of internal Champlain Towers South documents obtained by CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront sheds new light on the urgent conversations about the required construction on the building in the months leading up to its collapse.In a series of presentations delivered in the fall and winter of 2020, residents were shown slides titled "why we have to do all this now" and told that the driveway on top of the building's garage had "very poor drainage (design flaw)." "There is no waterproofing layer over the garage in the driveway or any area except the pool deck and planters. This has exposed the garage to water intrusion for 40 years. Where there is waterproofing, it has failed. Water has gotten underneath and caused additional damage to the concrete," one presentation, from October of that year, reads.Tragedy beyond tragedy: Champlain Towers South was a catastrophe in slow motion "The drainage problems must be corrected so that water drains off to the sides (code issue)," says another December 2020 presentation, the first half of the sentence underlined for emphasis.The documents, which were first...
    Confession: like you, I suspect, the skin-tight catsuit was not my first choice, go-to outfit, for the past 15 months. If I did have to discard the trusty elasticated tracksuit bottoms for some reason, I usually popped on a jumpsuit, which covered all manner of lockdown sins of the flesh. In fact, I've bought more jumpsuits in the past few years than sets of underwear, if that's not too much information. Still, this much I know: when it comes to bringing sexy back, the jumpsuit barely charts into the top ten of what men like. Not that I care. The jumpsuit almost falls into the 'man repeller' category of garment, as men (or the men I know) always look disappointed when you manifest in one. 'Oh,' my husband says when I emerge having spent my allotted 30 seconds getting ready. 'Is that what you're wearing?' Even if I've made a huge effort, ie, put on heels. The catsuit, on the other hand . . . The catsuit comes second only to a sexy nurse outfit when it comes to catching...

    OXFORD (CBS) – “Those little kids they don’t deserve that,” said Noreen Welch, who never even met the couple who lived, and tragically died, at their home on Old Webster Road in Oxford on Tuesday, in what officials call an apparent murder-suicide. One day later, she stopped by with flowers. “They don’t have a mother now,” she said.
