    From Associated Press, June 26, 2020: "The Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously advanced a proposal to change the city charter to allow the police department to be dismantled" Can anyone be sure "the police will still be there"? What part of "...allow the police department to be dismantled..." means "reform"?

    Scarnati Releases Statement On Media Reports “First and foremost, there are many good reporters who work to provide the public with news regarding legislation and governmental operations. I appreciate the work these reporters do to keep the public informed on issues before the Senate. “While I rarely push back on media coverage, there comes a point when the truth must be heard. The recent media reports from The Caucus and Spotlight PA that have attempted to draw links between donations to my campaign and potential gambling legislation are appalling. These publications actively solicit contributions from donors, which raises questions as to the bias of their reporting. “I have not advocated for members of the Senate to support video gambling legislation. In fact – in the past I actively worked against legislation that had been proposed for VGTs. The spread of false information on this issue can in no way be considered fair and balanced “journalism”. “Over my years in office I have received numerous campaign donations – often from competing interests – and my legislative and policy decisions cannot and do not take contributions into account. It is also important to note that all of my campaign records are available to the public and adhere to campaign finance laws. “Any further false media statements will be met with appropriate legal action.”

    American News Minneapolis spends $63,000 on private security for city council members defunding the police Minneapolis city council members who voted to dismantle and defund the city’s police department have been using taxpayer dollars to pay for private security. Ian Miles Cheong Montreal, QC 27th June 2020 2 mins reading Minneapolis city council members who voted to dismantle and defund the city’s police department have been using taxpayer dollars to pay for private security. Following claims that they received threats, Andrea Jenkins, Philippe Cunningham, and Alondra Cano were provided with private security detail costing upwards of $63,000 over the past three weeks. According to the Washington Examiner, citing FOX 9, the security detail was provided by two private security companies, Aegis and BelCom. The detail cost $4,500 a day. The city council members demanded security, which is typically provided for city officials by the police, whom they sought to defund and disband. The officials claim that they received threats following the death of George Floyd. His death inspired widespread riots in the city, prompting nationwide calls from the Black Lives Matter and Antifa movements to “defund the police.” “I don’t feel comfortable publicly discussing the death threats against me or the level of security I currently have protecting me from those threats,” said Cunningham. He explained that the security detail was temporary. Jenkins, on the other hand, told FOX 9 that she insisted on a private security detail ever since she was sworn in. She claims that she received threats from “white nationalists.” “My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” she said, but said she didn’t report any of the alleged threats to the police because she was too busy dealing with “global pandemic and global uprising,” the latter of which she supports. Jenkins claims that the alleged threats against her mentioned her ethnicity, gender identity, and sexuality. Prior to the public’s current anti-police sentiment, the city of Minneapolis traditionally had cops to fill the role, at least for the mayor. Council members do not get the same special treatment. A spokesperson for the city said that Minneapolis police were not offering officers to perform the detail because their resources are needed elsewhere, adding that the cost to assign a police officer to the role costs around the same as private security. The city declined to explain who authorized the expenses.

    Law to create harsher punishment for assaulting healthcare workers LOCAL NEWS by: Colleen Knudsen Posted: Jun 26, 2020 / 06:30 PM EDT / Updated: Jun 26, 2020 / 06:30 PM EDT HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — A bill waiting to be signed into law by Governor Wolf would create harsher penalties for assaults against healthcare workers. Sponsored by State Senator Judy Ward, the law would extend protections to a broader range of providers, including social workers, occupational and physical therapists, and cardiac sonographers. The bill would increase the penalty for an assault if there is bodily injury from a second degree misdemeanor to a second degree felony. “This is I think a great time to bring this forward and just let them know that we do have their backs, and we are trying to protect them and thank them for what they do every single day,” Sen. Ward said. The legislation was sent to the governor’s office on Wednesday.

    RACING Published 4 hours ago Guinness World Records posthumously awards Jessi Combs land speed mark after fatal attempt The automotive TV personality was driving the jet-powered North American Eagle across Oregon’s Alvord Desert in 2019 when it hit a rock and crashed. By Gary Gastelu | Fox News Race car driver Jessi Combs dies in crash during attempt to break land-speed record Race car driver and TV personality Jessi Combs returned to Oregon with hopes of breaking her own record. Approximately 6 years ago she broke the women’s land speed record. Tragically, her record breaking attempt turned fatal. She died in a crash that is now being investigated. Guinness World Records has posthumously awarded Jessi Combs the fastest land speed mark by a woman following her death during an attempt to break it last year. The automotive TV personality was driving the jet-powered North American Eagle across Oregon’s Alvord Desert on Aug. 27, 2019, when the vehicle hit a rock and broke a wheel at 550 mph, causing it to lose control and burst into flames as it crashed. (Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images) Combs had just completed the second of two runs in opposite directions required for the official record, which Guinness has verified at 522.783 mph. It marks the first time a new record has been set since Kitty O'Neil hit 512 mph at the same location in 1976. https://www.foxnews.com/auto/guinness-jessi-combs-world-land-speed-record

    Pennsylvania State Police welcomes 99 new Troopers following academy graduation by CBS 21 News Friday, June 26th 2020 AA PSP.PNG Harrisburg, PA — The Pennsylvania State Police is welcoming a batch of new cadets onto the force. Colonel Robert Evanchick, Commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police, announced today that 99 cadets graduated from the State Police Academy in Hershey and have been assigned to troops across the state. State police say the graduation ceremony was closed to the public in accordance with Pennsylvania's COVID-19 mitigation guidelines. Family and friends were able to watch the event live on the Academy's Facebook page, YouTube Live and PAcast. “The support of loved ones, even from afar, is crucial during the rigorous physical and mental training State Police cadets receive at the Academy, and it will remain vital throughout their careers as troopers,” said Colonel Evanchick. “Although proud parents, siblings, spouses, and others could not attend in person, we are grateful for everything they have done to help these men and women reach the important milestone we are marking today.” Four cadets received special awards and recognition: The American Legion Award, presented to the most outstanding cadet in recognition of all-around academic, physical, ethical, and moral qualifications: Nicholas A. Sully The Colonel Ronald L. Sharpe Award, presented to the cadet who most exemplifies the qualities of leadership: Nicholas A. Sully The Colonel John K. Schafer Award, presented to the cadet who achieved the highest combined score on a series of physical skills tests: Nicholas A. Sully The Commissioner Daniel F. Dunn Award, presented to the cadet who earned the highest level of academic achievement in the class: Nicholas P. Gustaitis The Colonel Paul J. Chylak Award, presented to the cadet who demonstrated the highest proficiency in driver safety training: Adam M. Romig The Sergeant Charles B.

    What Natalie Mains said she wished was not from the same state President Bush was from. That went bad. On the other hand Michael Moore the producer has said far worse things about President Bush and I have read people saying that's just Michael Moore. It's okay if he can rip into President Bush, No problem.

    Another non-relevant group making news in a poor attempt to become relevant again. Unfortunately, I saw them in concert at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena in an attempt to impress a young lady. Luckily, the young lady said to me half way through that she wanted to leave because they sounded awful. I couldn't have gotten up any faster.

    About 3 years ago we had a worse hailstorm. They were almost a foot deep in front of our garage, and it destroyed the roof on two of my greenhouses. They were almost the size of tennis balls.
