An apparent explosion started a fire that damaged at least three homes in the City of Butler. Emergency crews were called to the scene near the corner of Center Avenue and South Street around 1 a.m. Monday morning. They found a home fully involved with flame. No one was inside at the time, but the fire spread to the homes next door. It was some type of explosion, said Captain Ted Codispot of the Butler Bureau of Fire. We don't know what yet.

And when the government is asking for it, here comes the court issuing a restraining order prohibiting us from getting the property. That’s what I said, I’ve been reaching out and said, “You courts, you better behave. Do not force me not to believe in you. Do not wait for that day when you can just rob the people of their property and taxes.” The Inquirer owns a DunkinDonuts – they owe 1.5 billion from many years ago. And they havent paid. And during the time of Aquino, the Bureau of Internal Revenue assessed them at just 8 million 400 thousand. MF: It looks like you have many problems to deal with. RD: Yes. I have a problem with the rich and oligarchs, too. And I intend to get all of the people’s property from them, whether they like it or not. And I’ve been warning them, “Do not do it. Do not wait for the day when I will no longer believe in your courts and will just get out and get the property from them.

Diversity in marriage is on the rise. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, Cenk and Ana tell you why more people are marrying outside of their own race. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/ "WASHINGTONMore and more Americans are marrying people of different races and ethnicities, reaching at least 1 in 6 newlyweds in 2015, the highest proportion in American history, a new study released Thursday showed. Currently, there are 11 million people — or 1 out of 10 married people — in the United States with a spouse of a different race or ethnicity, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. This is a big jump from 50 years ago, when the Supreme Court ruled interracial marriage was legal throughout the United States. That year, only 3 percent of newlyweds were intermarried — which means they had a spouse of a different race or ethnicity.

(BROOKHAVEN, Miss.) Authorities in Mississippi say a suspect is in custody after eight people were killed in a shooting, including a sheriff's deputy. Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain said the shootings occurred at three separate homes Saturday night in rural Lincoln County. Two of the homes are in Brookhaven and one is in Bogue Chitto. The area is about 68 miles (109 kilometers) south of Jackson, the capital. Strain said investigators were gathering evidence at all three locations. Strain said charges have not yet been filed against the suspect and that it would be premature to discuss a motive. It was not clear whether the suspect knew his victims before allegedly killing them.

If this were to go away, I think you would have a number of farms that would probably end up closing up shop, King told HuffPost. Anna Johnson, a policy program associate at the nonpartisan Center for Rural Affairs , described the RBCS cuts as particularly alarming when combined with massive cuts proposed for other initiatives aimed at rural communities, like zeroed-out funding for the Rural Economic Development Program as well as the USDAs water and wastewater loan program, which helps fund rural infrastructure projects. Economic opportunity in these rural areas is a really big issue, and these areas face higher levels of poverty, Johnson said. These are really important programs. For the administration to propose eliminating these supports is troubling for rural communities. Criticism of the proposed USDA cuts has come from all sides of the agriculture sector ― including the conservative-leaning Farm Bureau Federation, which said the plan fails agriculture and rural America ― as well as members of Congress from both parties .

Ten of the 15 fastest-growing cities in the United States were located in the South in 2016, according to a release from the Census Bureau. Using new population estimates, the census ranked all of the cities in the United States to see which ones grew the fastest, which cities had the largest numeric increase, and which ones were the most populated. The 15 cities with the fastest-growing population, according to percentage, were Conroe, Frisco, McKinney (Texas), Greenville (S.C.), Georgetown (Texas), Bend (Ore.), Buckeye (Ariz.), Bonita Springs (Fla.), New Braunfels (Texas), Murfreesboro (Tenn.), Lehi (Utah), Cedar Park (Texas), Meridian (Idaho), Ankeny (Iowa), and Fort Myers (Fla.). Ten of these cities are in the South, including six cities in Texas, two in Florida, one in Tennessee, and one in South Carolina.

Pete Simpson , a spokesman for the Portland Police, said: "It appears preliminarily that the victims — at least a couple of them — were trying to intervene in his behavior, deescalate him and protect some other people on the train when [the suspect] viciously attacked them. It's horrific. There's no other word to describe what happened today. It is simply horrible." Wow. Related: Ariana Grande Announces Benefit Concert In Manchester Such terrible, terrible news.

The latest U.S. Census Bureau figures released Thursday reveal that Texas dominates the top five fastest-growing cities in the nation. In their annual rankings, the bureau looked at municipalities with populations of 50,000 or more and Lone Star State suburbs won big in the period from July 1, 2015 to July 1, 2016. The Houston suburb of Conroe took the top spot as the nations fastest growing city, increasing in population by 7.8 percent to 82,286 during that time frame, making its growth rate more than 11 times higher than the national average of 0.7 percent. Among the regional draws are high-tech companies and a 385-acre Exxon Mobil corporate campus that opened south of Conroe in 2015. Two sprawling suburbs north of Dallas, Frisco and McKinney, placed second and third, respectively. Frisco, which spans over Collin and Denton counties, experienced a 6.

When three men confronted the suspect and tried to calm him down, he allegedly stabbed them in the neck, killing two and injuring the other. “Preliminary information indicates that the suspect was on the MAX train yelling various remarks that would best be characterized as hate speech... At least two of the victims attempted to intervene with the suspect and calm him down. The suspect attacked the men, stabbing three, before leaving the train,” the Portland Police Bureau's official statement read. It continued to say that witnesses saw “two young women, possibly Muslim, who were on the train at the time of the disturbance and attack, but left prior to police arrival... one was described as wearing a hijab.” The location and identity of the two women is unknown, although police are currently looking to find and speak with them.

The woman he spoke to reviewed each bill with him, and calmed his concerns about what would be covered. “When we were done with that rigmarole, I asked, ‘What kind of a figure do you have?’” Gregory recalls. “She said, ‘Are you ready?’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I’m ready.’ And she says ‘It’s a little over fifteen million dollars.’” The costs of Joseph’s medical care are mostly billed to Medicaid. Financial support for Joseph’s other needs while navigating life with a debilitating gunshot injury can be elusive. “You have to find ways to figure out who can help pay for what,” Gregory says. “That’s a job unto itself.” Various state and local agencies provide support to crime victims. But often those resources are neither sufficient to counterbalance the enormous costs of gun violence, nor available to everyone affected by it. Donna Bryan believes she would have received reimbursement through Florida’s Bureau of Victim Compensation for several expenses related to her daughter’s death, if that shooting had been considered a crime.

Wong said she had begged the robbers to let her and her then unborn child live, following which they dropped her off in a secluded area. She said she was especially upset that Uber had not made any efforts to meet, explain and rectify matters, adding that she had only received two calls from "Jerred", representing Uber, three days after the ordeal. "The first time he called, he asked if I was okay. The second time, he asked me 'Apa you mau' (What do you want), which I find as a threat," she said. Wong said she lost valuables worth over RM16,000, including two handphones, a Pandora bracelet and a diamond ring. She looked physically distressed and overwhelmed throughout the press conference, which was also attended by Gerakan state liaison committee chairman Datuk David Ang Chin Tat, Gerakan Puchong public complaints bureau Andy Lieng Hwa Ching, and Wong's husband Tiong Ting Siong.
