Three dead after car drives through gate, hits barrier at Georgia Air Force base

Three men were killed late Friday when their vehicle drove through a gate at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia and collided with a security barrier, base officials said.

The incident occurred at around 9:30 p.m. when the vehicle approached the Russell Parkway gate, but failed to stop as ordered by the sentry.

As the car accelerated through the gate, security personnel activated the barrier, which the vehicle struck “at a high rate of speed.”

“This is a tragedy which we all feel deeply at Robins Air Force Base. We will thoroughly investigate to determine the facts and circumstances and what can be learned from this tragedy”, said Col. Katrina Stephens, vice commander, 78th Air Base Wing. “Our thoughts are with the families of those lost.”

Florida animal rescue groups launch desperate search to find disabled dog stolen with car

Florida animal rescue groups have stepped in to help a woman desperate to find her disabled dog after her car was stolen with the husky mix inside.

Wanda Ferrari had left the air conditioning on for her 13-year-old dog Zorra, whose back legs are paralyzed, while she popped into a Dollar Tree in Oakland Park, just north of Fort Lauderdale. When Ferrari returned, she found her car and dog had disappeared.

Rescue groups such as Abandoned Dogs of Everglades have stepped in on Ferrari’s behalf and are asking everyone to spread Zorra’s picture and story. Abandoned Dogs of Everglades has also hired a pet detective and is now offering a $2,000 reward for returning the dog.

FAKE DOCTOR’S BUTT ENLARGEMENT PROCEDURE NEARLY KILLS PATIENT, DETECTIVES SAY

“She’s been my whole life. I rescued her and she rescued me, Ferrari told CBS Miami, adding that the dog has been her constant companion as she fights a recurrence of breast cancer.

Zorra uses a pink wheelchair to walk but was lying on a pillow in the backseat of the car when it was stolen.

FLORIDA COUPLE INJURED IN POSSIBLE BOBCAT ATTACK

“I was in shock. And you know, the shock wore off,” Ferrari continued. “And then, I was traumatized, and in tears, because my girl was in the back, you know. I’m like, ‘who would do that? Who would take a car with a dog?’ They probably didn’t know,”

“Whoever took the car, if you just need the car, that’s not a problem. Just please take care of my baby and let me know where to come get her.,” Ferrari pleaded. “Please, if you have her, please, just bring my baby, please bring her back. Just, just please, I don’t care about the car. Bring my baby back.”

Panel from missing Los Angeles Public Library sculpture found after 50 years

Westlake Legal Group Well-of-the-Scribes-LAPL Panel from missing Los Angeles Public Library sculpture found after 50 years Robert Gearty fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/us-regions/west fox news fnc/us fnc article 0937dd11-daca-59de-9466-cafd1c722bfc

Fifty years after a three-panel bronze sculpture disappeared from the grounds of the Los Angeles Public Library in the city’s downtown one of the panels has been found.

The “Well of the Scribes” vanished in 1969 when gardens in front of the library were demolished to make way for a parking lot, according to reports.

“The gardens were fortunately restored in 1993, but the Well of the Scribes went missing,” said City Librarian John Szabo told KABC-TV Friday.

Author Susan Orlean referenced the sculpture in her 2018 bestseller “The Library Book.”

That inspired the managing editor at Alta magazine to commission an article about the missing sculpture which ran over the summer, The Los Angeles Times reported.

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS VENDOR FORCED TO REMOVE IMPEACHMENT-THEMED ‘PEACH MINT’ DESSERT ITEM FROM CAFETERIA

An antiques dealer in Arizona read the article and recognized the sculpture, according to the paper.

A bronze panel he bought for $500 years earlier was a piece of it, the paper reported. The dealer kept the panel in his apartment.

The dealer gave it back to the library, which unveiled it Friday.

LIBRARY BOOK RETURNED WITH FULL TACO SHOVED BETWEEN ITS PAGES

“Up until now, we thought [the sculpture] might have been destroyed or was in someone’s backyard,” Szabo said, according to the Times. “We just didn’t know if it would ever be found.”

The “Well of Scribes” went on display in the gardens when the Library opened in 1926. According to the paper, it pays homage to history’s great writers.

Now the Library wants to solve the rest of the mystery and find out what happened to the other two missing panels.

“We’ve always been hopeful,”  Szabo told KABC, “but I think we’re especially hopeful now that part of it has been discovered, that we might find the other two pieces.”

Illinois man accused of driving SUV into family, killing 1 and injuring 4

An Illinois man was charged with first-degree murder Saturday after he allegedly drove his SUV into a family outside a soccer game, killing a man and injuring four other people.

Priscilian Carranza, 22, of Waukegan, fled the scene but was later taken into custody after a patrol officer stopped a damaged SUV that fit the description provided by witnesses.

According to a Waukegan police statement, officers responded to reports of a fight at the Lake County Sports Center parking lot on the city’s west side.

“It was also reported that someone was struck by a vehicle,” the statement said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “While en route officers were updated that the suspect vehicle had fled the scene. The suspect vehicle was described as a black SUV. Upon arrival, officers located multiple victims that had been struck by the suspect vehicle.”

A man in his 40s was taken to an area hospital where he later died from his injuries. His identity is currently being withheld pending an autopsy scheduled for Monday, according to the Tribune.

Three of the injured – two teenagers and a 10-year-old girl – were reportedly related to the man who was killed. A fourth injured person was described as a man in his 20s who is not related to the other three. All the injured victims except for the 10-year-old girl were taken to an area hospital and are expected to survive, according to Fox 32.

Police told the outlet that the altercation began at a parking lot in the complex as a soccer match was finishing up.

“As the investigation was beginning, a patrol officer spotted a black SUV with front-end damage and conducted a traffic stop,” the statement added. “The black SUV was occupied with three people. Those three people were brought to the Waukegan Police Department.”

Carranza appeared in court on Saturday and was ordered held in Lake County Jail on a $5 million bond. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 29.

John Dillinger’s exhumation set for New Year’s Eve after Indiana approves permit

Westlake Legal Group John-Dillinger-GettyImages-3225327 John Dillinger's exhumation set for New Year's Eve after Indiana approves permit Robert Gearty fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/indiana fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 359e1ee8-85ab-5eac-8d43-8ebc07b9c736

John Dillinger’s nephew has obtained a permit to open the Great Depression gangster’s grave in an Indiana cemetery on New Year’s Eve, according to a report.

The exhumation permit approved Thursday by the Indiana Department of Health was being sought by Dillinger nephew Michael Thompson, who believes the grave holds the remains of a person who is not his uncle.

A previous permit application had a wrong date requiring Thompson to refile, Fox 59 Indianapolis reported Friday

GANGSTER JOHN DILLINGER’S BODY REPORTEDLY TO BE EXHUMED FROM HEAVILY PROTECTED GRAVE

The History Channel wanted to film the exhumation for a documentary but has ditched those plans, leaving Thompson to proceed on his own, the station reported.

Crown Hill Cemetery opposes opening the grave. Thompson has filed a lawsuit challenging that opposition.

The FBI says Dillinger was buried in Indiana after agents gunned him down in 1934 outside a Chicago movie theater showing Clark Gable’s “Manhattan Melodrama.”

Those who believe otherwise are pedaling “a conspiracy theory,” it says.

A Georgia teacher was reportedly placed on administrative leave this week after posting in a high school classroom a description of the Confederate flag as an announcement that you “intend to marry your sister.”

The Hephzibah High School teacher’s description was displayed on the board with a photo of a Confederate flag, Augusta’s WRDW-TV reported.

The description said the Confederate flag is “a sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash ‘Save the Date’ card.”

The district launched an investigation into the teacher after a parent posted a photo of the description to social media.

“She found it offensive, so she sent it to me and asked me what I thought,” Melissa Fuller said of her daughter who was in the teacher’s classroom, according to WRDW. She then posted it on Facebook.

“A lot of is that it’s not morally correct. It’s unethical,” Fuller told WRDW. “It’s just something you don’t want to discuss today in today’s world and especially inside of a classroom.”

The district issued a statement on the controversy that said in part: “The Richmond County School System is committed to creating a diverse, equitable learning environment for students. The language used in the example was unacceptable and has no place in our classrooms.”

‘Homewrecker’ lawsuit results in $750G award for jilted husband who sued over wife’s affair

A woman’s lover was ordered to pay $750,000 in damages to her ex-husband after a judge in North Carolina found under the state’s antiquated “homewrecker” law that he’s legally responsible for breaking up a more than decade-long marriage, according to reports.

NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGE PROFESSOR SUSPENDED AFTER ALLEGEDLY CALLING WOMEN ‘USELESS’ DURING LECTURE

Speaking Wednesday, Kevin Howard told Greenville’s WNCN-TV he filed a lawsuit against the man who had an affair with his wife over “alienation of affections,” a common law tort that dates to the 18th century, when women were considered their husbands’ property.

North Carolina is one of six states that still honor what’s been dubbed “homewrecker” or “heart balm” lawsuits under the tort that are brought by a spouse against a third party alleged to be liable for damaging the marriage, most often resulting in divorce.

“I filed this case because I believe it’s very important that people understand that sanctity of marriage is important, especially in this day and age when people question everyone’s morals, people question everyone’s liability as a person,” Howard told WNCN.

“I filed this case because I believe it’s very important that people understand that sanctity of marriage is important, especially in this day and age when people question everyone’s morals, people question everyone’s liability as a person.” 

— Kevin Howard, jilted husband

A Pitt County Superior Court judge in August ordered Greg Jernigan to pay the $750,000 in damages to Howard after court documents stated Jernigan seduced Howard’s wife while she was his teaching mentor, eventually initiating an affair that broke up an otherwise happy 12-year marriage, The Washington Post reported.

Under the “alienation of affections” law, a plaintiff must prove the marriage was happy before a third party intervened. Also dubbed the “mother-in-law” tort, the law does not imply a sexual affair had to have occurred, solely that an outside individual persuaded a married person to seek divorce.

Ohio University suspends all fraternities amid hazing allegations

Westlake Legal Group Ou Ohio University suspends all fraternities amid hazing allegations Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/ohio fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest fox-news/us/education/college fox news fnc/us fnc article 68e9168f-449b-502e-8e0b-7bad945a1d8e

Ohio University said Thursday it had suspended all of its fraternities following claims of widespread hazing.

The suspension is effective immediately and includes all five Interfraternity Council (IFC) chapters at the campus in Athens, about 70 miles southeast of Columbus.

“The swift action being taken in light of the allegations that have surfaced affirms Ohio University’s commitment to the health and safety of our students.,” the statement read.

9 LSU FRATERNITY MEMBERS ARRESTED IN SHOCKING HAZING INCIDENTS

Earlier this week, the school issued a cease and desist order to the ACACIA and Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternities after receiving allegations of hazing new members, The Post student newspaper reported.

Administrators received more allegations Wednesday against five other chapters, prompting the suspensions.

“These troubling allegations, which will be thoroughly investigated, indicate a potentially escalating systemic culture within our IFC organizations, and Ohio University will not put at risk the health and safety of our students,” Dean of Students Jenny Hall-Jones said in a letter.

All chapter meetings, events and activities are suspended until further notice. In May, Sigma Pi was expelled from the university for hazing, alcohol and drug use, and other student conduct code violations after the alleged hazing of 18-year-old Collin Wiant, who died in November.

UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO FRESHMAN, 18, DEAD AFTER SUSPECTED FRATERNITY HAZING

A lawsuit by Wiant’s family alleges he died of asphyxiation after ingesting nitrous oxide provided to and forced on him by fraternity members. Sigma Pi denied those allegations and said Wiant wasn’t a pledge when he died. The fraternity said Wiant was removed from the pledging process weeks earlier because of a sexual-assault allegation.

The letter from Hall-Jones said each chapter is expected to develop and implement a plan to ensure its culture is aligned with that of the national organization and the school student code of conduct.

Failure to comply could result in disciplinary action, she said.

Judson Horras, President and CEO of the North American Interfraternity Conference told WJW-TV a suspension “that impacts students not accused of misconduct is not the right approach to address this critical issue. It disincentivizes students who are following the rules.”

He said the university should bring “bring all parties to the table to seek a path forward that places the highest priority on the health and safety of students, while respecting the rights of those that live up to the standards of fraternal excellence.”
