    (CNN)West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice said Friday that he would welcome three western Maryland counties whose Republican legislators have asked to join the state."Absolutely, without any question, the invitation is wide open," Justice, a Republican, said Friday, adding, "We'd welcome, you know, absolutely these counties and be tickled to death to have them." A handful of Republican lawmakers from Maryland's Allegany, Garrett, and Washington counties sent two letters this month to West Virginia's top Republican legislators asking them to consider adding their counties to West Virginia. Such a proposal, however, would be difficult because state legislatures have to approve any moves, followed by the US Congress taking action. "We believe this arrangement may be mutually beneficial for both states and for our local constituencies. Please advise on next steps," the Maryland lawmakers, which includes House Minority Leader Jason Buckel, wrote. The other Maryland lawmakers are Sen. George Edwards, Dels. William Wivell, Wendell Beitzel and Mike McKay. CNN has reached out to the lawmakers for comment.Read MoreJustice on Friday announced his intent to put the issue to a vote in a...
    FILE – In this March 12, 2020, file photo, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice speaks during a press conference at the State Capitol in Charleston, W.Va. (F. Brian Ferguson/Charleston Gazette-Mail via AP, File) If lawmakers from three GOP-leaning counties in Western Maryland had their way, their counties would become part of West Virginia — and the state’s governor said he would welcome them with “open arms.” “We’d welcome absolutely these counties and be tickled to death to have them and the great folks of that incredible state,” West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice said during a virtual briefing on Friday, struggling to pronounce Garrett County, one of the three Maryland counties hoping to secede. The governor’s response came after a group of lawmakers representing Garrett, Allegany and Washington counties sent two letters last week asking West Virginia officials to consider adding their counties to the state. The first letter — for Garrett and Allegany counties — was signed by Sen. George Edwards and Dels. Wendell Beitzel, Jason Buckel and Mike McKay. The second letter — for Washington County — was signed...
    (CBS4) – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the perfect time to remind women about the importance of getting recommended screenings. Breast Cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States. Dr. Laura Barke is a breast radiologist with Invision Sally Jobe at HealthONE. On CBSN Denver, she told us women should get mammograms every year starting at age 40. Women with a family history of breast cancer will want to check with their doctor about possibly getting screened sooner. Dr. Barke says ever since mammography began, the mortality rate of breast cancer dropped about 38%. “While it is sometimes anxiety-provoking to go get a test, it is important to do so because we have data to show that it works. And I should mention that most of the women that come in for their screening are told everything looks fine.” Dr. Barke stresses the importance of doing a monthly self-breast exam.  If you find any new lumps or bumps, make sure to see your doctor as soon as possible. “An annual exam with your doctor...
    As he watched Meghan Markle walk slowly down the aisle in St George’s Chapel, Windsor, Prince Andrew may well have reflected on his own love life.  Years before he became embroiled in the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal, the Prince was secretly dating the American actress Koo Stark, who had starred in a tepidly erotic movie directed by the arty aristocrat, the Earl of Pembroke. Once their romance became public, pictures were circulated of Koo in various stages of undress, provoking hysteria among MPs. Though she had met the Queen and was considered the perfect match for Andrew, the stigma of that film – one of her first – poisoned any future prospects.  Ironically, Meghan, a divorcee, had taken acting roles far raunchier than anything shot by Koo Stark A stressed Meghan, humiliated over her father’s recent behaviour in taking money from a paparazzo for a series of photographs, was accused of leaving Kate, herself emotional following the birth of Louis, in tears. Pictured, Meghan Markle and her father Tom Their love affair was doomed. But for a fifth-rate movie, Koo...

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) on Tuesday made it clear he is inviting Afghan migrants to his state with open arms amid concerns of measles outbreaks and terrorist sympathizers being among them as others commit visa fraud. “Pennsylvania stands ready as a safe, welcoming place for those who seek refuge in the United States. To the Afghan evacuees who just arrived: Welcome home,” Wolf said, retweeting another grand welcome from the Keystone State’s official Twitter account, which declared in all caps that “ALL ARE WELCOME HERE”: Pennsylvania stands ready as a safe, welcoming place for those who seek refuge in the United States.

    President Joe Biden toured the Mack Trucks Lehigh Valley Operations facility in Macungie, Pennsylvania, on July 28 with Martin Weissburg (R), president of Mack Trucks, and Kevin Fronheiser (L), shop chairman of UAW Local 677. One of the first signs that Corporate America would likely embrace President Joe Biden's employer vaccine mandate with open arms came from the Business Roundtable, an association of high-level CEOs whose companies employ a combined 20 million people across the country. "Business Roundtable welcomes the Biden Administration's continued vigilance in the fight against Covid," said Joshua Bolten, president and CEO of Business Roundtable, in a statement. "America's business leaders know how critical vaccination and testing are in defeating the pandemic," Bolten added, noting that many companies had already decided to implement mandates for some or all of their employees.  Indeed, some of the nation's largest companies are already requiring their own employees to get vaccinated, including Microsoft, United Airlines, Tyson Foods, and CVS Health.  Bolten signed off saying that the roundtable "looks forward" to continuing to work with the Biden administration "to defeat the pandemic." That may be...

George is an incredibly talented driver. "I'd say the only highlight from last week was his qualifying lap, it was amazing. He's humble, he's got a great approach.

    Getty Colt McCoy #12 of the New York Giants scrambles ahead of Olivier Vernon #54 of the Cleveland Browns. The New York Giants swung big in free agency. Despite entering the offseason seemingly strapped for cash, the team reworked their finances en route to a $170 million-plus spending spree, the fifth-highest total in the NFL (per Over the Cap). Rather frugal with their money in recent years, the Giants’ sudden aggressiveness to acquire talent draws parallels to their memorable free agency haul of 2016.

    Last year, Christos Mavronas's checking account was dwindling, his revenue plummeted by more than tenfold, and he watched as businesses around him permanently shuttered their doors when one of the largest tourist areas in Florida went into lockdown at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. "I was on the brink of losing the business. That's how bad it was," Mavronas, owner of Steve's Famous Diner in Daytona Beach, told the Washington Examiner in an interview. "Nothing was coming in." Mavronas said his company suffered huge revenue losses, forcing his business to adapt to the new circumstances. "Normally, I average $3,000 to $5,000 in sales a day. I went down to $300 in sales," he continued. "I had two employees and me just doing takeout, just hustling, doing Facebook advertising trying to get people to call in so I could get some revenue going because I have fixed expenses." But now, the chef and business owner fears no more, in part due to the thousands of young adult revelers who have descended on the beach-front town in recent...

"It was a tough game against a strong opponent but we did very well and controlled the game well. "It was a good first half. In the second half we lost more of the possession and the distances in the passing were too long. "If you play against a quality team you have to accept there are moments you have to suffer. We defended very actively and brave. "We were looking for a second goal desperately as that would have killed the game. "I'm happy with the...
    ROME (AP) — Italy allowed a Spanish-flagged charity ship with 265 rescued migrants aboard to anchor off Sicily on Monday. The Open Arms vessel had brought the migrants safely aboard in separate rescues last week in the central Mediterranean. Port officials in Porto Empedocle, Sicily, said rough seas Monday evening were for the time being delaying the transfer of minors, reported to number 50, to a shelter on land after they tested negative for the coronavirus. The remaining adults were expected to be transferred to a ferry chartered by Italy earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic so the migrants can do two weeks of quarantine as others rescued at sea have done. Open Arms said 96 of those rescued had been adrift two days in a wooden boat without life vests in international waters. It said the passengers, most of them from Eritrea, included two women and 17 minors and were suffering from hypothermia when rescued. In an earlier, separate operation, Open Arms had taken aboard 169 migrants, who had departed Libyan shores, where many human traffickers are based. Traffickers launch...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — With at least a few inches expected out of this latest round, we wondered how people were feeling about more snow. With not as much snow predicted Tuesday afternoon and evening, and without that wild wind and ice beforehand, it seems this snowfall is highly anticipated by the winter lovers WCCO talked with. “It’s good, I like being outdoors, I like being outside, and I like the winter,” David Ruckle said. From those like Ruckle out taking in the beauty of the winter landscape to Mark Johnson trying his luck on the frozen water. “Bring it on,” Johnson said. It seemed outdoor enthusiasts were embracing all Lake Phalen has to offer this time of year. In Minneapolis, an already snow-covered West River Parkway still kept people moving. “Just trying to get a run in before it starts snowing,” one runner told us. “With COVID-19 and not being able to go to the gym and experience there, more snow means more skiing,” another said. All-in-all, a full agenda ahead as another Minnesota winter settles in.   More On...
    An arms race between Washington and Moscow “has already begun,” according to Russian President Vladimir Putin. “This is obvious,” the Kremlin boss told reporters, before blaming the United States for the competition. “Everything began after the U.S. pullout from the" Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. Putin’s marathon annual press conference featured a litany of complaints about U.S. policy, which he portrayed as aggressive and anti-Russian. His protestations centered on George W. Bush’s withdrawal from a 2002 deal that banned the development of missile defenses, as well as NATO’s expansion to include eastern European countries that hope that their membership in the transatlantic alliance will deter any future Russian invasions. “Compared to you, yes, it is a fact, we are harmless and squeaky-clean because we agreed to release from an unequivocal Soviet dictate those countries and nations that wanted to develop independently,” Putin told a BBC reporter, per a state media translation. “We heard your assurances that NATO won’t expand to the east, but you didn’t keep your promises.” He delivered the broadside as negotiators try to secure an...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) promised Wednesday the immediate launch of an investigation into whistleblower allegations that senior Trump administration officials censored information on intelligence reports that "made President Trump look bad." Among the information allegedly censored were details regarding the rising threat of white supremacism and Russia's attempt to interfere in the 2020 election, according to former Department of Homeland Security official Brian Murphy, who filed the formal whistleblower complaint with the department's inspector general this week.
