Interior secretary steps into Utah public lands tug-of-war | National News

Posted on

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — For decades, a public lands tug-of-war has played out over a vast expanse of southern Utah where red rocks reveal petroglyphs and cliff dwellings and distinctive twin buttes bulge from a grassy valley.

A string of U.S. officials has heard from those who advocate for broadening national monuments to protect the area’s many archaeological and cultural sites, considered sacred to surrounding tribes, and those who fiercely oppose what they see as federal overreach.

On Thursday, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland was the latest cabinet official to visit Bears Ears National Monument — and the first Indigenous one.

Haaland, a member of Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico, met with tribes and elected officials at Bears Ears as she prepares to submit recommendations on whether to reverse President Donald Trump’s decision to downsize that site and Grand Staircase-Escalante, another Utah national monument.

“I know that decisions about public

Saudi Gazette report

RIYADH — Lt. Col. Talal Al-Shalhoub, spokesman of the Ministry of Interior, warned against the violations on the part of the public pertaining to strictly following the precautionary measures and preventive protocols to stem the spread of coronavirus.

He also cautioned them that a decision on re-imposing curfew is in the hands of the members of the society and the curfew decision will be approved when the need arises for it.

Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, the ministry official stressed the need to adhere to all precautionary measures and preventive protocols.

“Despite all the efforts made by the government and the continuous warnings to adhere to the precautionary measures, it is unfortunate that violations are being monitored continuously,” he said while describing it as “individual” cases.

Lt. Col. Al-Shalhoub said that the competent authorities are monitoring the curves of coronavirus and are working on continuous

‘Cheer’ star Jerry Harris assaulted 15-year-old in public bathroom, feds allege

Posted on

Federal prosecutors say “Cheer” star Jerry Harris has “exploited and violated” at least 10 boys, “exhibits all the signs of a serial child predator” and should stay behind bars.

They also allege that Harris sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy in an unlocked public bathroom at a cheer event “with other individuals coming and going” — suggesting either that he “wanted to be caught or he simply cannot control his impulses.”

The claims appear in a nine-page memo filed Tuesday ahead of a detention hearing for Harris, who was arrested by the FBI nearly a month ago and charged with production of child pornography. The memo also alleges that Harris destroyed his cellphone upon learning of the investigation — and then continued to “victimize minor boys” with a new one.

Harris, 21, is being held at the downtown Metropolitan Correctional Center, prison records show.

Though the original criminal complaint filed against

A crashed truck, at Boylston and Charles streets, was involved in a serious accident, next to the Boston Public Garden.

An online fundraiser has been set up for the woman injured when an allegedly stolen truck crashed near the Boston Public Garden last week.

Kamila Guimaraes had been married for just a few weeks when she was injured. She’s also the mother of a 9-year-old son, according to the GoFundMe page.

The money will go to help her pay for rent and other expenses as she recovers, the page says, noting that she may be out of work for sometime, and could remain hospitalized “for a while.” It says she’s in critical condition.

As of Thursday afternoon, the fundraiser had brought in over $16,700 of a $100,000 goal.

The crash happened around 4:23 p.m. last Thursday, Boston police said in a press release.

Real fire demo shows public dangers in the kitchen and how to prevent a blaze

Posted on

GOLDEN, Colo. (KDVR) — The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) presented a real-fire demonstration to remind people the dangers of simply preparing a meal in your kitchen. 

It can happen quite literally in a flash. That’s why the DFPC teamed up with the Fairmount Fire Protection District to cook up a little demo.

“It’s important that we be safe in the kitchen,” said DFPC Section Chief Christopher Brunette.

It was the perfect place for the fire show: the Fairmount Fire Training Facility just outside Golden.

Under the watchful eyes of fire fighting professionals, fires were intentionally set in a controlled environment, all to send a message:

“Thanksgiving is our biggest day for home fires and so if we can start to illuminate those fires and teach people how to be proactive and safe in the kitchen, then we can illuminate a lot of the casualties,” Brunette said.
