Judge orders man to forfeit home and pay child porn victims

Channel 10 news - Sat, 09/01/2018 - 16:00

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A federal judge has ordered a North Carolina man to forfeit his home and pay $250,000 to a child he used for producing pornography.

The News & Observer in Raleigh reported Friday that 33-year-old Adam Geoffrey Frankel had created multiple videos involving underage girls in his Cary home. Police said he persuaded them to perform sexual acts on video. Investigators also said they found at least 136,350 images of child pornography.

Chief United States District Judge James C. Dever III on Thursday ordered Frankel to pay $250,000 to a minor victim. Frankel also must pay another $43,500 to three other victims of child pornography that was produced by other people.

Frankel had pleaded guilty to manufacturing child pornography. He was sentenced to nearly 25 years in prison earlier this year.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The start of the second half of Ohio State's game against Oregon State has been delayed by lightning.

The Ohio Stadium stands cleared out as heavy rain rolled into Columbus during halftime. A lightning strike led to the second half being delayed until at least 3 p.m.

Ohio State was leading 42-14 on two touchdown passes by new starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. and two scoring runs from Mike Weber.

Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer was not on the Ohio State sideline as he served the first game of a three-game suspension for mismanaging former assistant Zach Smith, who was accused of domestic violence and other bad behavior.

Papa John's founder seeks court help in battle with company

Channel 10 news - Sat, 09/01/2018 - 09:08

NEW YORK — The founder of Papa John's has filed a lawsuit against the company, its board of directors and CEO in the latest twist in the drama surrounding the pizza chain.

John Schnatter filed the lawsuit in Delaware's Court of Chancery asking the court to help stop what he sees as irreparable harm being done to the company.

Schnatter resigned in July as Papa John's chairman amid a report that he used a racial slur during a media training session. But he remains the Louisville, Kentucky-based company's biggest shareholder and has said his resignation was a mistake.

The complaint filed Thursday is sealed. But a statement from Schnatter's representatives says the lawsuit claims CEO Steve Ritchie and the board of Papa John's International Inc. are harming the company by "their repeated, and ongoing, breaches of the duties of loyalty and care" owed the company.

Papa John's said it will fight Schnatter's lawsuit, which it said is without merit.

"John Schnatter will do anything to distract attention from the harm caused by his inappropriate words," the company said. "He continues to make reckless allegations in his attempt to regain control and serve his own interests."

The lawsuit is the second filed by Schnatter in the court in Delaware, where Papa John's is incorporated. He is also suing to gain access to the company's books and records in a complaint where he accuses the company of treating him in an "unexplained and heavy-handed way."

Papa John's has moved to scrub Schnatter's image from its marketing materials as it tries to distance itself from the man who founded the chain in 1984. Late last year, Schnatter stepped down as CEO after blaming disappointing sales on the NFL's handling of player protests during the national anthem.

The chain's business, meanwhile, has suffered amid its public spat with its founder. In July, Papa John's slashed its sales outlook for the year after reporting a third straight quarter of sales declines in North America.

Dog Walkers Weekly "Furr-cast" | September 1, 2018

Channel 10 news - Sat, 09/01/2018 - 06:10

Welcome back, everyone! For you first-time readers, happy to have you here!

This blog is dedicated to those dog lovers across central Ohio. Unless you have an outdoor yard, many of you probably walk your dog, or dogs, on a daily basis, and maybe even multiple times a day.

The purpose and goal of this blog is to help those dog walkers and their furry, little friends make the most out of their walks outside while being safe at the same time.

So, let's start things off with a look at what I call the "Comfort Scale."

You will notice on the images below there are certain colors that go with each time period/day of the week for the "Furr-cast." I developed this scale on my own, using several meteorological variables and some pet-friendly considerations.

You will see that the color "green" on the image above suggests that conditions are ideal for walking your pet and that there are no risks to either you or your pet, so walk all you want!

This brings me to the next level on the scale, which is a yellowish-orange color. This shows conditions are fair outside but you should still keep an eye on your pet. This is where the breed of your pet also comes into play. I'm not an expert on dogs but I know a Siberian Husky can withstand colder temperatures than a Chihuahua.

This now is up to the owner to decide if the conditions are fair enough that they could take more casual, longer walks outside.

Lastly, we have the last ranking on the scale, which shows outside conditions are poor and pet owners should keep their walks short. Dangerous weather is developing or already present and pet owners should take action to make sure that their pets are properly taken care of. This shouldn't be used to decide whether or not you should go outside; but more so an indicator that you should take shorter, more frequent walks.

Now that we have a look at the method behind the comfort scale, let's take a look at this weekends "Furr-cast."

Here it is. The big Labor Day weekend. What many like to refer to as the unofficial end of summer. On the contrary, this weekend will still very well feel like summer. While temperatures won't be crazy hot, scattered showers & storms will be possible through the afternoon & evening hours. Any activity leftover this evening will then diminish after sunset, with lows near 70 tonight. Best advice is to wait later in the day to take your pets out on a long walk or visit a local dog park.

Sunday, much like today, will be another warm & humid day. Mornings will be best for longer walks as temperatures soar into the upper 80's later in the afternoon. A few pop-up showers & storms will be possible, mainly through the afternoon. The heat & humidity doesn't appear to slow down either as we head into Labor Day.

Actually, the heat & humidity won't slow down for most of the upcoming week. Mornings & late evenings will be you and your pets best friends. That's best temperatures will be on either side of 90 degrees pretty much all week long. Keep that in mind because temperatures are going to feel much hotter than that, with real feel temperatures anywhere from 90 to 100 degrees through much of the week. We'll see some relief in the temperatures as we close out the week but we'll also deal with another round of showers & storms.

While it's common sense to not leave your pets or children unattended in vehicles, one may be surprised by how fast things can "heat up" inside a car even with the windows cracked. It's extremely important for your pet's health that you avoid leaving them in the car. In as soon as 10 minutes, a car can heat up by nearly 20 degrees. In cases such as this and how temperatures will pan out next week, it's best to leave the pets at home rather than putting their health at risk.

Another pet safety tip is to avoid paved or concrete roads or sidewalks when temperatures are warming up, especially later in the day when the sun has already been up for several hours under mostly sunny skies. These types of surfaces can heat up extremely fast and while the air temperature isn't too hot, the grounds can be much, much warmer. In cases such as this, it's important to keep their paws on grassy, cooler surfaces. An easy test to tell if the grounds are too hot for your pets is to simply place the back of your hand on the ground for seven seconds. If it is too hot for you, then it's likely it will be too hot for your pet's paws and that it could easily damage their skin.

The "Barking Message" for next week:
  • Keep your walks shorter when temperatures are above 80 degrees. Plain and simple.
  • Avoid walks during storms, these will be most likely and intense during the afternoon hours.
  • Never leave your pets unattended in your car, even for just a few minutes with the windows cracked.
  • Avoid blacktop or concrete surfaces when we have a lot of sun and warm days. You can easily damage their paws, so stick to the grassy surfaces.

Each Friday, I will be posting a new "Furr-cast" for the weekend and week ahead and I would like to feature some of your pets on my blog. Also, if you have any suggestions or comments on my blog, I'd love to hear input. Enjoy the weekend and week ahead, furr-parents.

2 former presidents set to pay tribute to McCain

Channel 10 news - Sat, 09/01/2018 - 04:53

WASHINGTON — John McCain is getting a presidential farewell, but not from the actual sitting president.

At McCain's request, former Presidents Barack Obama, a Democrat, and George W. Bush, a Republican, are speaking about the six-term senator on Saturday at Washington National Cathedral. It is the last event in Washington, where McCain lived and worked over four decades, and part of McCain's five-day, cross-country funeral procession. He died Aug. 25 at age 81.

LIVE: Memorial service begins for Senator John McCain at the National Cathedral

President Donald Trump was told to stay away, but he won't be far. The president is expected to remain in Washington this weekend.

McCain's procession will come within a mile of the White House as it travels between the U.S. Capitol, where the casket was lying in state overnight, to the cathedral. It will pass the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, where McCain's wife, Cindy, is expected to lay a wreath. McCain is a decorated veteran who was held for more than five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. He refused early release.

Trump obtained deferments for his college education and a foot ailment.

The memorial stop will provide another contrast with Trump in McCain's carefully designed funeral procession. But the speeches by the former presidents are expected to carry special weight.

McCain has long urged the Senate and the polarized nation to recognize the humanity even in bitter political opponents. McCain's request for speeches by the former presidents, to some, represents that ideal.

"We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe," McCain wrote in his farewell letter to the nation, read posthumously by a longtime aide. "We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been."

By all accounts, McCain ended up liking both Bush and Obama but was not especially close to either man.

"John McCain and I were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds, and competed at the highest level of politics," Obama said in a statement after McCain's death. "But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher — the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed."

Bush delivered McCain a decisive defeat in the race for the GOP presidential nomination in 2000. Obama defeated McCain eight years later in the general election.

After his death, Bush called McCain "a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order. He was a public servant in the finest traditions of our country. And to me, he was a friend whom I'll deeply miss."

McCain's service and dedication to working across the aisle — even as he sometimes infuriated his opponents — was a major theme of Friday's ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda.

Of those who spoke at Friday's ceremony, fellow Republican Mitch McConnell had perhaps the fullest sense of the McCain experience. The two had served in the Senate together since McCain's 1986 election.

"Depending on the issue, you knew John would either be your staunchest ally or your most stubborn opponent," McConnell recalled. "At any moment, he might be preparing an eloquent reflection on human liberty — or a devastating joke, served up with his signature cackle and that John McCain glint in his eye."

But just about anyone who worked in the Capitol over the past 35 years could attest to McCain's iron will and what House Speaker Paul Ryan called his "distinct brand of candor."

"With John, it was never feigned disagreement. The man didn't feign anything," Ryan said. "He just relished the fight."

"This," Ryan added of McCain, "is one of the bravest souls our nation has ever produced."

McCain is to be buried Sunday at his alma mater, the U.S. Naval Academy, next to his best friend from the Class of 1958, Adm. Chuck Larson.

"Back," McCain wrote on the last page of his recent memoir, "where it began."

Serena matches her easiest win over Venus in US Open rout

Channel 10 news - Sat, 09/01/2018 - 04:31

NEW YORK — Serena Williams kept booming big shots for winners, never allowing herself to feel sorry for the overmatched player on the other side.

So what if it happened to be her big sister?

The Williams sisters, long ago in careers that have spanned 20 years and 30 meetings as professionals, learned they had to view each other only as opponents — and in Serena's eyes, Venus is the best one she's ever played.

"Even though it's difficult, especially for me," Serena said, "we just do the best that we can."

On Friday, it was perhaps the best she's ever done against Venus.

Serena equaled her most-lopsided victory against her sister with a 6-1, 6-2 rout in the third round of the U.S. Open.

Serena shook off an early ankle injury to win seven straight games and seize control in perhaps her most dominant performance since giving birth to her daughter a year ago Saturday.

The sisters' earliest meeting in a Grand Slam tournament in 20 years was over early, with Venus unable to do anything to blunt Serena's power, even after the fans that were part of Friday's single-day record crowd of 70,162 tried desperately to get behind her with pleas of "Come on, Venus!" early in the second set.

"I think it's by far the best match I ever played against her in forever," Serena said of the match that lasted just 1 hour, 12 minutes. "But I don't know about ever, ever. It probably was. I played much better tonight than I have since I started this journey on my way back."

They hadn't played this early in a Grand Slam since Venus won in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open in their first meeting as pros, and only once over the next two decades had either won so decisively. Serena won by the same score in a semifinal victory in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2013.

"I think it's the best match she's ever played against me," Venus said. "I don't think I did a lot wrong. But she just did everything right."

Serena, the No. 17 seed, will face Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, who knocked out top-ranked Simona Halep in the first round.

Serena, who turns 37 next month, leads the series 18-12 with her sister, 11-5 in Grand Slam tournaments. But this one wasn't expected to be so easy, not with Serena still working her way back into form after returning to the tour in the spring.

But this was the type of tennis that has brought her to 23 Grand Slam singles titles, the ability to pound balls all over the court and chase down the rare shots that looked like they might get past her.

"Obviously that level is definitely where she's going to want to stay during this whole tournament," Venus said.

Serena pounded 10 aces to just one for Venus, the No. 16 seed who was perhaps a little drained after two tough matches to begin the tournament, including a three-setter against 2004 U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova in her opener.

Serena had an easier time in the first two rounds, though that was expected to change Friday under the lights in Arthur Ashe Stadium. They had combined for eight titles in Flushing Meadows, six by Serena, and each had beaten the other in a U.S. Open final.

But there was no beating Serena on this night, and the discouraged look on Venus' face across much of the match indicated she seemed to realize it.

"I mean, she played so well, I never got to really even touch any balls," said Venus, a semifinalist at the U.S. Open last year. "When your opponent plays like that, it's not really anything to be upset about."

It looked as if Serena could have trouble when, in the second game of the match, her right ankle turned awkwardly when Venus hit behind her on a shot. Serena stood near the baseline with her back to the court for quite a few seconds, then motioned to the chair umpire that she wanted to the see the trainer at the next changeover.

Serena had the ankle treated with a 2-1 lead, then broke in the next game, helped when Venus missed an easy swinging volley wide. She would break again for a 5-1 lead, then pound two aces in the next service game to wrap up the first set in 31 minutes.

Police: Ohio man kept 9 dead cats, kittens in his freezer

Channel 10 news - Fri, 08/31/2018 - 20:01

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — Police have arrested an Ohio man who had nine dead cats and kittens in his freezer.

Middletown police arrested 24-year-old Edmund Cunningham on Thursday during a search of his home.

Authorities say they'd received a complaint about Cunningham harming the animals.

A woman who runs an animal rescue organization says Cunningham adopted the cats from her. Taylor Buttelwerth tells WXIX-TV that Cunningham seemed normal. She said he told her he had a wife and daughter who were excited about the animals.

Police say Cunningham acknowledged killing eight of the nine cats in his freezer and faces multiple charges of animal cruelty.

Cunningham is being held in Middletown's jail pending a Friday court appearance. No attorney was listed for him.
