Judge Hears Arguments On Whether Oil Pipeline, Terminating In South Portland, Can Reverse Flow
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

Attorneys were back in federal court Tuesday arguing about a lawsuit brought by the Portland Pipe Line Corp. against the City of South Portland over its Clear Skies Ordinance. In August, U.S. District Judge John Woodcock rejected the city’s request to dismiss the lawsuit. But the city says last month’s cancellation of a massive pipeline project in Canada has undermined the company’s case. The Portland Pipe Line Corp. would like to reverse the flow of its 236-mile pipeline and send crude oil from Montreal to South Portland. But the city’s Clear Skies Ordinance, adopted with broad support from residents three years ago, effectively prohibits that. It bans the bulk loading of crude onto marine tankers. The company says the ordinance is unconstitutional, a violation of the Interstate Commerce Clause. But before the judge can consider that question, Sean Mahoney of the Conservation Law Foundation says he must decide whether the company has been harmed by the ordinance. “What the city has

Gorham Businessman Shawn Moody Announces Run For Governor
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

Gorham businessman Shawn Moody launched his second run for governor Tuesday, this time as a Republican. Moody hit topics familiar to conservative audiences, including welfare, supporting veterans and a business approach to government. Mainers are tired of just getting by," he said. "It's time to get ahead." Moody, who finished fourth out of five candidates as an independent seven years ago, has enlisted several political advisors to Gov. Paul LePage to bolster his run. Moody, age 58, is hoping his unassuming demeanor and business background will resonate with a GOP primary electorate that has shown a preference for candidates perceived as outsiders. But he's doing so with a campaign apparatus that's been in control in Augusta since LePage was elected governor in 2010. LePage's daughter Lauren is part of Moody's campaign and so is Brent Littlefield, a D.C.-area consultant who hails from Maine. Littlefield continues to advise LePage as well as 2nd District Congressman Bruce Poliquin -

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein Supervises Mueller Probe But He's Also A Witness
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

To the many mysteries swirling around the investigation of Russian election interference and the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, add this one: why Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein continues to supervise the investigation. Rosenstein is the Justice Department official who pulled the trigger and named special counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe in May, only days after President Trump fired his FBI director under questionable circumstances. But Rosenstein also wrote a memo advocating the dismissal of Comey. The deputy attorney general testified he was put off by Comey's public remarks about the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton's email practices. "I wrote it. I believe it. I stand by it," Rosenstein told Congress of his memo criticizing Comey. The president went onto tell a television interviewer he had actually dismissed the FBI director over "the Russia thing," leading Comey and others to suggest he had been fired in a possible attempt to obstruct justice.

David Cassidy, Singer And 1970s TV Heartthrob, Dies At 67
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJYSu2OVCGM One of the biggest music and television stars of the 1970s has died: David Cassidy, who played the adolescent, aspiring musician on the TV show "The Patridge Family" and who became a teen-dream pop idol in his own right, was 67 years old. Cassidy revealed to People Magazine in February 2017 that he had been diagnosed with dementia and would stop performing. He also shared that both his grandfather and mother had suffered from dementia before him. Cassidy was reported to be in critical condition on Nov. 19 with organ failure, and was hospitalized in the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. area. He died Tuesday night of liver failure. David Cassidy was born in 1950 in New York City to two performers, singer and actor Jack Cassidy and actress Evelyn Ward; his parents later divorced, and in 1956 his father wed another actress, Shirley Jones. Cassidy spent a large chunk of his childhood in suburban West Orange, N.J., being raised by his maternal grandparents,

Tribunal Finds Ratko Mladic Guilty Of Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity In Bosnia
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

Updated at 7:00 a.m. ET After a 5 1/2-year trial, the former Bosnian Serb military commander blamed for orchestrating the murders of thousands of ethnic Muslims has learned his own fate. On Wednesday morning, judges at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague handed down a guilty verdict for one count of genocide, five counts of crimes against humanity and four counts of violations of the laws or customs of war, out of the 11 counts against 74-year-old Ratko Mladic, for his role as a general in the Yugoslav army and chief of staff of the Army of Republika Srpska, the ethnically Serb entity in Bosnia. The three-judge panel found him not guilty on one of the two counts of genocide and sentenced him to life imprisonment. Minutes before the verdict was to be read, Mladic, 74, shouted "this is all lies, you are all liars" and was removed from the courtroom. In a summary of the verdict, Judge Alphons Orie said the crimes "rank among the most heinous

Sheriff Admits To Sending Sexually Explicit Photo In Uniform
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

PORTLAND, Maine - The president of the Maine Sheriff's Association has been ousted after a sexually explicit photograph of the sheriff in his office while in uniform surfaced. WGME-TV reports Oxford County Sheriff Wayne Gallant confirmed the explicit photo was him Tuesday. Gallant says he sent the photo to a woman he didn't want to identify. The Maine Sheriff's Association said in a statement they don't condone Gallant's "inappropriate actions.'' According to the association, Vice President Sheriff Kevin Joyce will serve as acting president. Gallant was elected Oxford County Sheriff in 2006 and is in his third term. He had served as president of the sheriff's association since January. Gallant released a statement saying he should not remain in a leadership position with the association.

This Thanksgiving, Carve Out Time To Talk About End-Of-Life Wishes
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

The roast turkey and pecan pie may be the same as always, but growing numbers of families plan to add a tradition to their Thanksgiving holiday this week: a frank talk about their wishes for end-of-life care. Paul Malley , president of Aging with Dignity, the agency behind Five Wishes, a popular living will template, says requests for the documents that guide decisions surrounding serious illness and death typically surge starting now. "We see a bit of a Thanksgiving rush and a bit of a Christmas rush in December," says Malley, who notes that 30 million copies of Five Wishes have been distributed since 1998. Now, turkey dinner with a side dish of death isn't everyone's idea of a festive meal. But end-of-life planning advocates say the holidays are an ideal time to have these conversations. "People come home for the holidays," says Ellen Goodman , the longtime columnist and reporter. She co-founded The Conversation Project, which provides kits to kick-start end-of-life discussions. "It

8 Recovered After Plane Carrying 11 Crashes In Philippine Sea, Navy Says
Posted on Wednesday November 22, 2017

Updated at 6:35 a.m. ET The Navy says eight people have been recovered and are "in good condition" after a propeller-driven C-2 Greyhound carrying 11 crew and passengers crashed in the Philippine Sea southeast of Okinawa, Japan. "Search and rescue" for the remaining three people is still underway, the Navy says. In a statement , the U.S. 7th Fleet said the C-2, a twin-engine airplane used to ferry personnel to and from aircraft carriers, went down about 2:45 p.m. Japan time (12:45 a.m. ET) while it was en route to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN76), which is operating in the region. By 3:23 p.m. local time, eight people were recovered. "All personnel were transferred to USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) for medical evaluation and are in good condition at this time," the Navy says. The incident will be investigated. The cause of the crash is not yet known, an earlier statement said . The names of crew and passengers were being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
