William Coors, former chair of Adolph Coors, dies at 102

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 20:06

William "Bill" Coors, the former chairman of Adolph Coors Co. and grandson of the brewing company's founder, has died at 102.

Molson Coors Brewing Co. said he died Saturday at his home in Golden, Colorado. Coors began his career with the company in 1939 and was chairman from 1959 to 2000, helping it grow from a regional brewer into one of the world's largest. He was also an official beer taste tester for the company and continued to taste test until his 100th birthday.

After earning chemical-engineering degrees from Princeton University, Coors helped the company develop and introduce the modern aluminum beverage can in 1959. The company said he also started one of the country's first employee wellness centers.

Coors is survived by three children, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Former ballerina, Harvard grad may have created the next big thing in fitness

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 19:53

Former ballerina and Harvard alumna Brynn Putnam believes our fascination with our image is fueling the next big trend in fitness.

"There's something really magical about seeing yourself in the mirror and seeing yourself working hard," said Putnam.

She calls her invention MIRROR. When it's off, that's all that it is. But turn it on and your very own personal trainer is staring back at you -- with instructive workouts live or on demand.

MIRROR's Vice President of Fitness is Kailee Combs. "Is it the same rush you get when you're actually in a gym live?" CBS News' Michelle Miller asked. "It's almost like even more of a rush. Eventually we're going to have thousands of people that pop up on that screen," said Combs.

"Just, like, the idea that we can reach so many people with this MIRROR makes it really exciting," Combs said.

The device was test marketed in 100 homes, connecting phones to an app that learns the goals, injuries and preferences of users. Classes range from cardio and strength to yoga.

Biologist Joey Pakes-Nelson is using MIRROR to train for her first marathon. "I don't think that without those cross training workouts, the Pilates, the barre, the strength, I would be able to run the distances that I can run today. I think I just would have injured myself earlier on in my training," said Pakes-Nelson. "So I'm much more fit now than when I started using the MIRROR."

Putnam herself spent years as a professional dancer transitioning into full-time fitness as the owner of a small studio inside a church.

"The catch was that every Saturday we had to give the space back to the church for Sunday services and then reset the space on Sunday," said Putnam. "It meant we had to actually figure out how to design and build original fitness equipment that would be wall mounted."

The Refine Method Studio expanded to three New York City locations, but with a newborn, Putnam found it difficult to get to her own studios.

"I started to think about how I could take the studio experience that we built at Refine and bring it to people in home, largely because it was something I needed myself. But I didn't want to put a big piece of cardio equipment or a bike or treadmill into my home," said Putnam.

However, connected home fitness equipment is all the rage, with Peloton leading the pack.

The company has sold hundreds of thousands of bikes, raising nearly a billion dollars from investors since 2012. Peloton hopes to continue the streak with a $4,000 treadmill. Other products are also emerging, like the $3,000 digital strength training system, Tonal.

MIRROR sells for $1,495 with a $39 monthly membership that provides unlimited classes, which are all filmed at MIRROR's New York City office.

"A lot of consumers might look at that big ticket of $1500 and run away a little bit right now," said CNET executive editor Sharon Profis. "But that cost will come down and when it does we expect at home workouts to be an even bigger trend."

Profis said brick-and-mortar gyms might just try to get in on the action. "You can imagine a traditional gym or boutique gym also offering at-home workout options. … This would actually bridge the gap between gyms and the home, which is what consumers are looking for and is exactly why they're reaching for these products."

Investors have bought in to MIRROR, seeding the start-up with $38 million. Brynn Putnam says what helps MIRROR further stand apart is the upcoming option to activate a camera and microphone for true one-on-one training.

When asked how she can make the product hack-proof, Putnam said MIRROR comes with a physical lens cap, and "you need to have your phone with your password in front of your MIRROR and then there is a pin pairing process so we can ensure you're the one using your device."

Putnam doesn't expect customers to cancel their gym memberships, just up their game as they zero in on their reflection.

"Is it vanity?" asked Michelle Miller. "I think it's confidence," said Putnam. "Vanity has a negative connotation. But we spend so much time looking in the mirror criticizing ourselves or poking at ourselves. This is an opportunity to look in the mirror and give yourself a high five."

Ohio State moves to No. 2 in latest AP College Football Poll

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 19:10

After four of the top eight teams lost, The Associated Press college football poll had a new look behind No. 1 Alabama, with Ohio State reaching No. 2, LSU jumping back to No. 5 and Michigan moving into the top 10 for the first time this season.

The Crimson Tide received all but one of the 61 first-place votes from the media panel Sunday, with Ohio State receiving the other. No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Notre Dame also moved up a spot. LSU jumped eight spots after handing Georgia its first loss of the season. The Bulldogs slipped from No. 2 to No. 8.

No. 6 Michigan has its best ranking of the season after blowing out Wisconsin and Texas is up two spots to No. 7.

No. 9 Oklahoma moved back into the top 10 while it was idle and Central Florida remained No. 10.

TOP 25

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Clemson
  4. Notre Dame
  5. LSU
  6. Michigan
  7. Texas Texas
  8. Georgia
  9. Oklahoma
  10. UCF
  11. Florida
  12. Oregon
  13. West Virginia
  14. Kentucky
  15. Washington
  16. North Carolina State
  17. Texas A&M
  18. Penn State
  19. Iowa
  20. Cincinnati
  21. South Florida
  22. Mississippi State
  23. Wisconsin
  24. Michigan State
  25. Washington State

POLL POINTS

Eight ranked teams overall lost Saturday, including three previously unbeaten teams. Joining Georgia among the previously undefeated on Saturday were West Virginia and Colorado.

UP

All the losses up and down the rankings meant plenty of movement. Joining LSU and Michigan as teams that gained at least four spots were:

— No. 12 Oregon jumped five after beating Washington in overtime.

— No. 17 Texas A&M moved up five after edging South Carolina on the road.

— It was a good week to be idle and watch teams plummet. No. 14 Kentucky and No. 16 North Carolina State each gained four spots in an idle week, and No. 20 Cincinnati moved up five.

DOWN

— No. 13 West Virginia lost at Iowa State and fell seven spots after reaching a season high last week.

— No. 15 Washington dropped eight spots after losing at Oregon.

— No. 18 Penn State's second straight close home loss, this time to Michigan State, dropped the Nittany Lions 10 spots.

— No. 23 Wisconsin, which started the season ranked fourth, dropped eight spots after its second loss.

OUT

— Colorado reached No. 19, racking up wins against a weak schedule, but USC manhandled the Buffaloes in Los Angeles and now they are unranked.

— Miami, which started the season at No. 8, is out altogether after losing at Virginia.

— Auburn, which started the season ninth, is out and no longer receiving votes after getting beat at home by Tennessee and falling to 4-3.

IN

— Iowa surged into the rankings for the first time this season at No. 19.

— No. 24 Michigan State is back in after a week out.

— No. 25 Washington State moved in just in time to host ESPN's "College GameDay" for the first time ever with Oregon coming to town. Getting to Pullman, Washington, is notable for the show because for years it has been followed around by Wazzu fans waving the 'Ol Crimson school flag.

CONFERENCE CALL

A week after the Southeastern Conference placed a season-high eight teams in the poll, the SEC lost one and the Big Ten gained two. The ACC has only two ranked team for the first time since Oct. 4, 2015, when Clemson was No. 6 and Florida State was No. 12. The Tigers played for in the national championship game that season.

SEC — 7 teams.

Big Ten — 6.

American — 3.

Big 12 — 3.

Pac-12 — 3.

ACC — 2.

Independent — 1.

RANKED vs. RANKED

No. 16 North Carolina State at No. 3 Clemson. The ACC's only ranked and unbeaten teams meet in a game that will likely go a long way toward settling the Atlantic Division.

No. 22 Mississippi State at No. 5 LSU. This will be the fourth ranked team the Tigers have faced — though two (Miami and Auburn) are no longer.

No. 6 Michigan at No. 24 Michigan State. Another chance for Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines to flipped the narrative.

No. 12 Oregon at No. 25 Washington State. The Ducks look to make it an Evergreen State sweep.

Mourners pack funeral for 8 of 20 killed in NY limo crash

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 15:58

AMSTERDAM, N.Y. — Mourners at a funeral for four sisters and their family members killed in a New York limousine crash were assured Saturday that their loved ones can still see their tears and feel their heartache.

On a damp, chilly day, hundreds of people packed the pews of an old brick church in Amsterdam at the service for eight of the 20 people killed last Saturday when the limousine they hired for a 30th birthday celebration crashed. The stretch limo barreled down a hill past a stop sign into another vehicle in the parking lot. All 17 passengers and the driver were killed, as well as two pedestrians standing in the parking lot.

"The question that is in the hearts of so many is: Why?" The Rev. O. Robert DeMaritnis told hundreds of mourners. "Why did these 20 individuals have to be taken from us so quickly and so unexpectedly?"

DeMaritnis spoke on an altar flanked by pictures of Allison King, sister Abigail Jackson and her husband Adam Jackson, sister Mary Dyson and her husband Robert Dyson, sister Amy Steenburg and her husband Axel Steenburg and his older brother, Richard Steenburg.

Urns containing their remains were placed beneath the pictures, with each of the three married couples sharing urns. Five teddy bears lay by the urns, one for each young child who lost a parent.

A week ago, the group — most of them in their 30s — was headed to a birthday party for Amy Steenburg at a local brewery in Cooperstown. DeMaritnis said he believes Amy and her friends were able to celebrate Amy's 30th birthday, but in their afterlife. He told mourners to take solace in their eternal life.

DeMaritnis married Amy and Axel Steenburg in June. He recalled them as a laughter-loving couple who made a sign asking wedding guests not to take pictures, because "we suggest that you live in the moment."

He had wondered why they never picked up the sign. Now, he said, he knew.

"That's what they're asking me to ask you to do today," DeMaritnis said, holding the sign aloft.

The sisters grew up in Amsterdam, a small upstate New York city, and many of the victims have deep ties to the area. The city has been stricken with grief amid a series of funerals.

Meanwhile, authorities continue to investigate the cause of the crash while prosecutors have charged the operator of the limo company, Nauman Hussain, with criminally negligent homicide, saying he allowed an improperly licensed driver to operate an "unserviceable" vehicle.

Thousands came together for a candlelight rally by the Mohawk River on Monday night, and thousands more attended calling hours Friday evening for the sisters and their family members.

"What good can come from this tragedy?" DeMaritnis asked the packed church as he spread his arms wide. "Take a look - thousands and thousands of people."

Man gets probation for death of infant daughter in hot car

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 15:21

MEDINA — An Ohio man has received two years' probation for the death of his 6-month-old daughter who was left in a car for more than two hours on a nearly 90-degree day in July.

The Medina Gazette reports 22-year-old Christopher Stewart, of Lodi, apologized to his wife and family for failing his responsibilities as a father during a hearing Friday in northeast Ohio's Medina County. Stewart pleaded guilty to felony child endangering before sentencing.

Medina County Prosecutor S. Forrest Thompson says Stewart forgot about his daughter, who name wasn't revealed in court, while he attended a baseball game in Medina. Thompson called the death a "family tragedy" that didn't warrant prison.

Stewart's attorney said the sentence was appropriate.

Medina is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of Cleveland

Skywatch: If you lose your bearings use a famous asterism to help you find your way

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 15:04

The planets of Mars and Saturn will meet the moon early this week. From Sunday to Wednesday evenings the three will be in the south to southwestern sky; Mars and Saturn will shine brightly joined. Above is how they’ll look on Monday evening. And if you have a strong enough telescope you can look for Pluto which will be between the two brighter planets.

The moon will reach First Quarter on Tuesday at 2:02 p.m. Look for the half-moon that evening.

If you’re out in the evenings and you lose your bearings it’s very easy to find the North Star. Just locate the famed asterism known as the “Big Dipper." The two stars that make up the back of the cup are known as Merak and Dubhe. They point in a near-straight line to Polaris which is the star that sits over the North Pole. Once you know where due north is, it’s easy to find the other cardinal directions.

Even though the moon will be brightening through the week if you’re out late look up and you may catch a “shooting star." The Orionid meteor shower is peaking early next week but the shower is active from early October to early November. If you’re out a few hours before sunrise the moon will have set which means there won’t be as much light pollution. Those who are far enough from the city could be lucky enough to catch a streak of light across the sky. Happy hunting!

Police: Florida man hid heroin in 5-year-old's shirt

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 14:41

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Authorities say a Florida man hid packets of heroin and other drugs inside his 5-year-old's shirt while police were executing a search warrant.

West Palm Beach Police say they entered Frederick James' apartment on Friday. They say James grabbed the child and carried him against his chest as a shield.

The Palm Beach Post reports James released the child without incident but police later found heroin and fentanyl packets hidden on the boy. The child was decontaminated in a neighbor's apartment. Two other children were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Heroin, fentanyl and marijuana were all found inside the home. James faces several charges including child endangerment and drug sales. It's unclear whether he has an attorney who could comment on the charges.

"He's giving CPR to a squirrel" Officers witness remarkable rescue

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 13:59

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. — Just outside Minneapolis, Brooklyn Park police officers Jeremy Halek and Tony Weeks were driving around town recently when they came across something remarkable.

"We just saw a car kind of pulled over. You could tell something was going on and then as we got closer, you could see that he was giving chest compressions," Tony said.

When the officers got out, they found 19-year-old Chris Felix, who cleans cars at the local Subaru dealership, attempting to revive a little one, who Chris says darted out in front of him and struck his vehicle.

"It didn't look like he had any life, you know?" Chris said.

He learned CPR in high school, but never thought he'd use it. But he said you never know when you might be in just the right place at just the right time -- to save a rodent.

"I just couldn't believe it. He's giving CPR to a squirrel," Tony said.

"It doesn't matter if it's a little life or a big life," Chris said. "Life is life."

Because he believes life is life, Chris gave it a valiant effort.

After a minute there was still no response. The officers said deep down they knew it was gone.

"Then that squirrel took off," Tony said.

"Just, wow. What did we just witness?" Tony said.

"Something I'll always remember," Jeremy said.

"Sometimes when nobody is looking and people do the right thing, it kind of shows who they really are," Tony said.

Not surprisingly, someday Chris would like to go into medicine. Let's hope he does, because if he can have this much compassion for roadkill, imagine what he could do for his fellow man.

No. 3 Ohio State holds off persistent Minnesota 30-14

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 13:50

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Dwayne Haskins threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns as No. 3 Ohio State held off persistent Minnesota to win 30-14 Saturday in a game where little went well for the Buckeyes beyond their passing game.

The Buckeyes (7-0, 4-0) needed a pair of Blake Haubiel second-half field goals and a late TD pass from Haskins to K.J. Hill to put away the Gophers (3-3, 0-3).

Hill also made the play of the game with a turn-around, one-hand grab that he turned into a touchdown in the second quarter. He had a career-high nine catches for 187 yards.

For the second straight week, a heavy underdog came into Ohio Stadium and shut down the Buckeyes' running game. The Gophers held tailbacks J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber to a total of 86 yards, without a single carry longer than 11.

For Minnesota, Mohamed Ibrahim turned in a career day of his own, rushing 23 times for 157 yards and two scores.

Also for another week, Ohio State showed a weakness for giving up big plays. Ibrahim ripped off runs of 25 and 34 yards on the way to 105 yards in the first half. Minnesota had 396 total yards, with Ohio State piling up 504 behind Haskins' passing.

THE TAKEAWAY:

Minnesota: The Gophers hurt themselves with three turnovers, two of which led to 10 points for the Buckeyes, a two missed field goals. True freshman walk-on quarterback Zack Annexstad threw two interceptions, but also flashed some potential.

Ohio State: The Buckeyes stay unbeaten despite making plenty of mistakes and Minnesota staying in the game until almost the end. Problems persist with running the ball and the defense allowing big plays.

UP NEXT

Minnesota: At Nebraska on Saturday.

Ohio State: At Purdue on Saturday.

The Ohio State School for the Blind put on a special performance that would make The Best Damn Band in the Land proud Saturday.

Capital University hosted the OSSB band Saturday during its game against Mount Union, allowing the band to put on a performance at halftime.

The band did its version of Script Ohio, but did it in a way only the OSSB could, spelling out O-H-I-O in braille.

While TBDBITL was busy with a halftime performance of its own, this is sure to impress them when they get the chance to see it.

Capital University tweeted the video.

After rash of injuries, WR Breshad Perriman gets new life with Browns

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 13:06

CLEVELAND — The Browns added a wide receiver before they lost another one.

Cleveland signed free agent Breshad Perriman after injuries to Rashard Higgins and Derrick Willies cut into the depth of an already inexperienced group.

Perriman, a former first-round draft pick, worked out for Cleveland on Saturday, a day after Willies broke his collarbone during practice. The Browns placed Willies on injured reserve, but there is hope he might be able to play again later this season.

An undrafted rookie, Willies came off the bench last week against Baltimore after Higgins injured his right knee and made the game's biggest play, a 39-yard reception in overtime that set up Cleveland's game-winning field goal. Willies finished with three catches for 61 yards.

Willies was set to be Cleveland's No. 3 receiver in Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but his injury will give rookie Damion Ratley more playing time.

The Browns (2-2-1) have only Ratley, Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway and Rod Streater to face the Chargers (3-2). Streater and Ratley have not caught passes this season.

It's unlikely Perriman will be active after just joining the team, but the 25-year-old could be an option going forward.

Perriman has not lived up to expectations since the Ravens selected him with the No. 26 overall pick in 2015. He missed his rookie season with a knee injury. Perriman caught 33 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns in his second season, but he struggled with inconsistency and was released this summer.

He visited the Browns during training camp and worked out for several other teams.

We've signed WR Breshad Perriman and placed WR Derrick Willies on injured reserve

Ohio teen who killed 94-year-old neighbor sentenced to life, no parole

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 11:37

WARREN, Ohio — An Ohio teenager who beat a 94-year-old neighbor to death with a flashlight when he was 15 has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole.

Nineteen-year-old Jacob LaRosa apologized and begged for a second chance before a judge in northeast Ohio's Trumbull County sentenced him Friday for the slaying, attempted rape, and robbery of Marie Belcastro in March 2015. His attorneys objected to the sentence and said they planned to appeal.

LaRosa pleaded no contest to aggravated murder and other charges in February. He couldn't receive the death penalty because of his age at the time of the killing.

Prosecutors in a sentencing memorandum said LaRosa's crimes were "straight out of a slasher film."

Relatives said Belcastro had shown LaRosa nothing but kindness.

Own one of Neil Armstrong’s flight suits. Starting bid: $10,000

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 11:22

You could soon own an iconic piece of space exploration history. To help mark the moon landing's 50th anniversary next year, Neil Armstrong's family is auctioning off items from the late astronaut's personal collection of memorabilia at the beginning of November.

The 3,000-item auction includes one of Armstrong's Project Gemini flight suits and a gold pin he wore on his first voyage into space.

Also up for bidding are items that accompanied Armstrong on the Apollo 11 mission including a centennial flag from his alma mater, Purdue University, and fragments of the wing and propeller from the Wright Brothers' first successful airplane.

"Neil Armstrong and his family had these items in their possession for decades and they were great stewards of those pieces," said Todd Imhof, executive vice president for Heritage Auctions. "They very generously donated and loaned certain items to various museums over those years and now his sons have decided that the time has come to share these items and sell them to the space collecting community."

HERITAGE AUCTIONS

The auction also includes a crayon drawing Armstrong created as a first grader in 1936 and his Boy Scout cap.

This weekend's release of the new biopic"First Man," starring Ryan Gosling as Armstrong, should only help to boost sales.

"I think that interest in the film or renewed interest in Neil Amstrong's days as an astronaut could very well spur more interest in his artifacts and memorabilia that the family is selling," Imhof said.

Last year, a collection bag used by Armstrong containing traces of moon dust sold at auction for $1.8 million.

How to check what Facebook hackers accessed in your account

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 09:35

NEW YORK — Could hackers have been able to see the last person you cyberstalked or that party photo you were tagged in? According to Facebook, the unfortunate answer is "yes."

On Friday, the social network said fewer users were affected in a security breach it disclosed two weeks ago than originally estimated — nearly 30 million, down from 50 million. In the additional good news, the company said hackers weren't able to access more sensitive information like your password or financial information. And third-party apps weren't affected.

Still, for users already uneasy about the privacy and security of their Facebook accounts after a year of tumult, the details that hackers did gain access to — gender, relationship status, hometown and other info — might be even more unsettling.

Facebook has been quick to let users check exactly what was accessed. But beyond learning what information the attackers accessed, there's relatively little that users can do — beyond, that is, watching out for suspicious emails or texts. Facebook says the problem has been fixed.

The company set up a website that its 2 billion global users can use to check if their accounts have been accessed, and if so, exactly what information was stolen. It will also provide guidance on how to spot and deal with suspicious emails or texts. Facebook will also send messages directly to those people affected by the hack.

On that page, following some preliminary information about the investigation, the question "Is my Facebook account impacted by this security issue?" appears midway down. It will also provide information specific to your account if you're logged into Facebook.

Facebook said the hackers accessed names, email addresses or phone numbers from these accounts. For 14 million of them, hackers got even more data — basically anything viewable on your account that any of your friends could see, and more. It's a pretty extensive list: username, gender, locale or language, relationship status, religion, hometown, self-reported current city, birthdate, device types used to access Facebook, education, work, the last 10 places you checked into or were tagged in, your website, people or Pages you follow and your 15 most recent searches.

An additional 1 million accounts were affected, but hackers didn't get any information from them.

The company isn't giving a breakdown of where these users are, but says the breach was "fairly broad." It plans to send messages to people whose accounts were hacked.

Facebook said the FBI is investigating, but asked the company not to discuss who may be behind the attack. The company said it hasn't ruled out the possibility of smaller-scale attacks that used the same vulnerability.

The company said it has fixed the bugs and logged out affected users to reset those digital keys.

Facebook Vice President Guy Rosen said in a Friday call with reporters that the company hasn't ruled out the possibility that other parties might have launched other, smaller-scale efforts to exploit the same vulnerability before it was disabled.

Patrick Moorhead, founder of Moor Insights & Strategy, said the breach appeared similar to identity theft breaches that have occurred at companies including Yahoo and Target in 2013.

"Those personal details could be very easily be used for identity theft to sign up for credit cards, get a loan, get your banking password, etc.," he said. "Facebook should provide all those customers free credit monitoring to make sure the damage is minimized."

Thomas Rid, a professor at the Johns Hopkins University, also said the evidence, particularly the size of the breach, seems to point to a criminal motive rather than a sophisticated state operation, which usually targets fewer people.

"This doesn't sound very targeted at all," he said. "Usually when you're looking at a sophisticated government operation, then a couple of thousand people hacked is a lot, but they usually know who they're going after."

No winning Mega Millions ticket, jackpot now $654 million

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 08:42

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — No winning lottery ticket was sold for the Mega Millions drawing Friday night, meaning the jackpot climbs to $654 million.

Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the estimated $548 million grand prize. The numbers were 4, 24, 46, 61, 70 and Mega Ball 7.

The next drawing will be Tuesday. The estimated jackpot for that drawing would be the fourth largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

The jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of instant wealth aren't good. The chance of matching all six numbers and winning the jackpot is one in 302.5 million.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Official: Searchers find body in hurricane-stricken town

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 07:57

MEXICO BEACH, Fla. — Search and rescue teams have found a body in the Florida Panhandle town nearly wiped out by Hurricane Michael, and authorities said there is little doubt the death toll will rise further.

The tally of lives lost across the South stood at 14, including the victim found in the rubble of Mexico Beach.

Miami Fire Chief Joseph Zahralban, leader of a search-and-rescue unit that entered the devastated community, said: "We have one confirmed deceased and are working to determine if there are others."

Zahralban said searchers, who were using a trained dog, were trying to determine if that person had been alone or was part of a family.

He spoke Friday as his team was winding down its two-day search of Mexico Beach, the town of about 1,000 people that was nearly obliterated by Micahel's storm surge and devastating 155 mph (249 kph) winds when the Category 4 hurricane made landfall Wednesday.

Michael was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall in the U.S., and this Gulf Coast community of about 1,000 people was in its bullseye. While most residents fled ahead of the storm's arrival, others stayed to face the hurricane. Some barely escaped with their lives as homes were pushed off their foundations and whole neighborhoods became submerged.

Hector Morales, a 57-year-old restaurant cook, never even thought of evacuating. His mobile home wasn't on the beach but when it suddenly began floating during the hurricane, he jumped out and swam to a fishing boat and clambered aboard.

"I lost everything," Morales said. "... But I made it."

How many others were not so fortunate was still not clear.

State officials said that by one count, 285 people in Mexico Beach defied mandatory evacuation orders and stayed behind. Though it's unclear if any of those got out at the last minute or had successfully ridden out the storm.

Emergency officials said they had completed an initial "hasty search" of the devastation, looking for the living or the dead, and had begun more careful inspections of thousands of ruined buildings. They hope to complete those inspections later Saturday.

They've received thousands of calls asking about missing people, but with cellphone service out across a wide area, they found it impossible to know who among those unaccounted for were safe but just unable to dial out to friends or family.

Meanwhile, Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Brock Long said he expects the death toll will rise.

"We still haven't gotten into the hardest-hit areas," he said, adding with frustration: "Very few people live to tell what it's like to experience storm surge, and unfortunately in this country we seem to not learn the lesson."

By Friday, authorities had begun setting up distribution centers to dole out food and water to victims, who just were coming to grips with the brutal realities of their situation.

"I didn't recognize nothing. Everything's gone. I didn't even know our road was our road," said 25-year-old Tiffany Marie Plushnik, an evacuee who returned to a home in Sandy Creek too damaged to live in.

Elsewhere, President Donald Trump announced plans to visit Florida and hard-hit Georgia early next week but didn't say what day he would arrive.

"We are with you!" he tweeted.

On the Panhandle, Tyndall Air Force Base "took a beating," so much so that Col. Brian Laidlaw told the 3,600 men and women stationed on the base not to come back. Many of the 600 families who live there had followed orders to pack what they could in a single suitcase as they were evacuated before the storm. The hurricane's eyewall passed directly overhead, severely damaging nearly every building and leaving many a complete loss. The elementary school, the flight line, the marina and the runways were devastated.

"I will not recall you and your families until we can guarantee your safety. At this time I can't tell you how long that will take, but I'm on it," Laidlaw wrote. "We need to restore basic utilities, clear our roads of trees and power lines, and assess the structural integrity of our buildings."

Congress heads toward postelection fight over border wall

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/13/2018 - 05:09

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress is heading toward a postelection showdown over President Donald Trump's wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, as GOP leaders signal they're willing to engage in hardball tactics that could spark a partial government shutdown and the president revs up midterm crowds for the wall, a centerpiece of his 2016 campaign and a top White House priority.

President Trump is promising voters at rallies across the country that Republicans will bring tougher border security in campaign speeches that echo those that propelled him to office two years ago. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., promised a "big fight" over the border wall money and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has not ruled out a mini-shutdown as GOP leaders look to help Trump "get what he's looking for" on the wall.

"Democrats want to abolish America's borders and allow drugs and gangs to pour into our country," Trump said without evidence Wednesday during a swing through Erie, Pa.

"Right after the election we're doing something very strong on the wall," Trump added Thursday in an interview on "Fox & Friends."

Republicans steered clear of shutdown politics ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm election. They know voters have soured on government dysfunction, hold low views of Congress and are unlikely to reward Republicans — as the party in control of Congress and the White House — if post offices, national parks and other services are shuttered.

GOP leaders struck a deal with Democrats earlier this year to fund most of the government into next year. They presented their case to Trump in a White House meeting in September — complete with photos of the border wall under construction. Trump, who previously warned he would not sign another big budget bill into law without his border funds, quietly signed the legislation before the start of the new budget year Oct. 1.

Left undone, however, is the portion of the government that funds the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the border, and a few other agencies. They're now running on stopgap funds set to expire Dec. 7.

The deadline sets the stage for a new round of budget brawls.

"We intend on having a full-fledged discussion about how to complete this mission of securing our border and we will have a big fight about it," Ryan said in a speech at the National Press Club.

Asked if he made a commitment to Trump for a shutdown over wall funds, Ryan said blame would fall to Democrats, who are in the minority in Congress and largely oppose increased funding for the wall. Trump promised during the campaign that Mexico would pay for the wall — a claim Mexico rejects and Republicans routinely ignore.

"We have a commitment to go fight for securing the border and getting these policy objectives achieved," Ryan said.

House Republicans approved $5 billion for Trump's wall, including physical barriers and technology along the U.S. southern border, in a key committee, although it comes without Democratic support. A bipartisan bill being considered in the Senate allocates $1.6 billion for the wall, far short of the $5 billion the White House is seeking as part of a $25 billion, five-year plan to complete the project.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., upped the stakes Friday by introducing legislation for the full $25 billion in border funds as he bids for Ryan's job as the speaker retires. McCarthy's toured the southern border this week to make the case for the wall as he seeks to shore up support from conservatives skeptical of his possible leadership promotion.

McConnell predicted a "lively" lame-duck session and didn't close the door on the possibility of a mini-shutdown.

"We've got a lot of work left to do," he said in an AP Newsmakers interview. "That episode, if it occurs, would be in that portion of the government that we haven't funded."

Asked how much money Congress would try to secure for the border wall, McConnell said, "We're going to try to help (Trump) get what he's looking for."

The chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said Senate Republicans are willing to fight for more than the $1.6 billion currently being considered, but stopped short of predicting how much money Congress would approve.

"I think it's going to be a big fight . always because of the different views," Shelby said.

The midterm results will play a key role in how the fight over wall funding is resolved. If Republicans lose the House majority, as some analysts predict, they will lose leverage, although the GOP would still be able to force House passage of a wall-funding package in the lame-duck session. Prospects are murkier in the Senate, where 60 votes are required to break a filibuster.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York said "Democrats believe in strong border security," but would not commit to a specific spending figure. "We're going to keep fighting for the strongest, toughest border security," he said.
