Someone’s got to tell Trump he lost, but Republicans are loath to raise their hands.

first_imgThirty-one former Republican members of Congress — many of them outspoken critics of the president — on Monday denounced Mr. Trump’s allegations in an open letter that called on him to accept the election results. “Every legal challenge must be heard,” Mr. McCarthy said. “Then and only then does America decide who won the race.”- Advertisement – President Trump’s iron grip on his party has inspired love for him among some Republican lawmakers and fear among others. Neither group will tell him it is time to concede his loss — or at the very least, to stop spreading claims about the integrity of the nation’s elections that are contrary to considerable evidence.The dynamic helps explain why, days after Joseph R. Biden Jr. was declared the winner of the election, even Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, was unwilling to recognize the result. Instead, senators have tiptoed around — or in some cases blindly run past — the reality of Mr. Trump’s loss, and the lack of evidence to suggest widespread election fraud or improprieties that could reverse that result.- Advertisement – By Monday evening, only a few Republican senators known for their distaste for Mr. Trump — Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — had acknowledged Mr. Biden’s victory.The Republican House leader, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, insisted that Mr. Trump was right to contest the results of the election. – Advertisement –last_img read more

LeBron James’ I Promise School will offer transitional housing program starting in 2020

The two got to talking about the I Promise School, which has been lauded for its early results for at-risk children in the Akron School District. Those initial discussions led the company into working with the foundation on the project, which is expected to be fully operational by July 2020.“For (Weprin) to be able to bring that to our families and our kids at the IPS, to continue to expand what we want to do,” James said, “it’s just something that you can’t even really even – you never even dream about it until it becomes like it is now.”The school expanded some of its services for this school year, including dedicating a new media lab and an outdoor basketball court. After promising test results earlier this year, IPS now has fifth-graders enrolled into the school, which started with third- and fourth-grade students.Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions CHICAGO — A day after he had to leave his multimillion-dollar home in Brentwood because of a wildfire, LeBron James mused briefly on his past.Had he ever been displaced by a natural disaster before, a reporter asked. Perhaps a hurricane in Miami? A storm in Cleveland? Anything comparable?Not that he could remember, James said. But as a child, he moved a lot.“It wasn’t because of natural disasters; it was our situation,” he said. “Back when I was growing up, I wouldn’t – me or my mother wouldn’t – have had the means to walk anywhere and be able to get lodging. Just had to figure it out.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersPoverty drove James and his mother, Gloria, from place to place, which he remembers as one of the most challenging aspects of his childhood. He knows the value of a stable place to live, which is why his foundation is now taking steps to incorporate housing support into his I Promise program.On Monday morning, the LeBron James Family Foundation announced the I Promise Village, a transitional housing program in Akron, Ohio, for the families who have children enrolled in the already operational I Promise School. The program’s aim is to provide shelter for those families who are facing homelessness, domestic violence or other issues that affect their housing security.In Year 2 of the school – which already offers a food pantry, legal aid, mental health services, financial planning support and GED classes on site – James and his foundation felt that housing was the next step in a radical approach to extending help to families well beyond the classroom.“You can have all the support in the world while you’re at school or while you’re at basketball or while you’re playing sports or doing anything,” he said after Monday’s practice. “But if you go home and it’s not stable, you don’t have any stability there, you’re gonna resort back to the negative things or the bad habits that you might have. Sometimes it’s not even the kids’ fault of why the situations are the way they are.”Partnering with Graduate Hotels, the foundation will refit an apartment building near the school into temporary housing as families’ needs arise. The building currently has units for 22 families, but that number could change as planners design communal spaces in the building.last_img read more

Five African American NFL head coaches fired

first_imgThis NFL season the following Black head coaches were fired: Marvin Lewis (Bengals, 6-19), Vance Joseph (Broncos, 6-10), Todd Bowles (Jets, 4-12), Hue Jackson (Browns, 7-8) and Steve Wilks (Cardinals, 3-13).The firings mean there are now only two Black head coaches in the NFL: Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn and Steelers longtime head coach Mike Tomlin.Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks walks off the field after an NFL football game against the Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018, in Seattle. The Seahawks won 27-24. Associated PressThe firing of Wilks in Arizona after only one season won particular attention. In the NFL, many coaches fail in their first year yet remain employed. Though the NFL has made great improvements in hiring Black head coaches over the last twenty years as the result the Rooney Rule, the recent firings were sobering.

Razor Clam Dig Begins April 20, More Proposed for May

first_imgFacebook78Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The Washington Department of Fish and WildlifeState shellfish managers today approved nine days of razor clam digging beginning April 20 on the first of three ocean beaches.The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the digs after marine toxin tests showed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat.Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, said the department added two days of digging at Copalis, which was not originally included in the list of tentative digs previously announced by the agency. The dig was added after catch estimates indicated that there are still clams available for harvest to allow for two weekday openings at the beach, he said.Ayres recommends that diggers arrive at the beaches an hour or two before low tide for best results. However, digging is not allowed on any beach after noon.The upcoming dig is scheduled on the following dates, beaches, and low tides:April 20, Wednesday, 6:25 a.m.; 0.6 feet; Long BeachApril 21, Thursday, 7:01 a.m.; 0.2 feet; Long BeachApril 22, Friday, 7:35 a.m.; 0.0 feet; Long BeachApril 23, Saturday, 8:08 a.m.; -0.2 feet; Long Beach, MocrocksApril 24, Sunday, 8:42 a.m.; -0.2 feet; Long BeachApril 25, Monday, 9:18 a.m.; -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Mocrocks, CopalisApril 26, Tuesday, 9:56 a.m.; -0.1 feet; Long Beach, Mocrocks, CopalisApril 27, Wednesday, 10:39 a.m.; 0.1 feet; Long BeachApril 28, Thursday, 11:28 a.m.; 0.3 feet; Long Beach Under state law, diggers are required to keep the first 15 clams they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2016-17 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website at https://www.fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.Ayres notes that Twin Harbors Beach remains closed to razor clam digging due to elevated levels of domoic acid, a natural toxin produced by certain types of marine algae. Toxin levels at Twin Harbors are above the threshold (20 parts per million) set by public health officials.Tentative razor clam dates in May 2016Meanwhile, WDFW has also proposed additional digs in May, pending the results of future marine toxin tests.May 6, Friday, 6:51 a.m.; -1.5 feet; Long BeachMay 7, Saturday, 7:39 a.m.; -2.0 feet; Long BeachMay 8, Sunday, 8:26 a.m.; -2.1 feet; Long BeachAyres said the department will consider adding digging days at Mocrocks in May after reviewing harvest levels from the April dig.During all upcoming digs, state wildlife managers urge clam diggers to avoid disturbing snowy plovers and streaked horned larks by observing posted vehicle speed limits and avoiding nest sites. Both species nest in the soft, dry sand at Leadbetter Point on the Long Beach Peninsula.The snowy plover is a small bird with gray wings and a white breast. The lark is a small bird with a pale yellow breast and brown back. Male larks have a black mask, breast band and “horns.” Both species are listed as “endangered” in the state and as “threatened” under the federal Endangered Species Act.Copalis extends from the Grays Harbor north jetty to the Copalis River, including Ocean Shores, Oyhut, Ocean City and Copalis areas.Mocrocks extends from the Copalis River to the southern boundary of the Quinault Reservation near the Moclips River, including Iron Springs, Roosevelt Beach, Pacific Beach and Moclips.Long Beach extends from the Columbia River to Leadbetter Point and Seaview, Cranberry, Klipsan , Ocean Park and Oysterville area.last_img read more

Sen. Jennifer Beck Ready To Work With Democrat Assembly-Elect

first_imgBy Muriel J. SmithAs sure as she is that Super Pac funds had an influence in Democrat candidates Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey taking two seats in the Assembly’s 11th district from the Republican incumbents, State Senator Jennifer Beck is just as sure the newcomers will work well together with her for the good of the people of the district.The upset victory by the Democrats over incumbents Mary Pat Angelini and Caroline Casagrande was one of the largest surprises in the lighter than usual voter turnout last Tuesday. In spite of Democrats having more registered voters than Republicans in the district, it has traditionally voted for Republicans at the Senate and Assembly level.Beck, the state senator representing the district, told The Two River Times this week that the lower turnout also was an asset for the Democrats, noting that Neptune Township, where Houghtaling was raised, still lives and serves on the Township Committee, had a higher percentage of voters at the polls than the county in general. Beck attributed the lower turnout to people being disgusted with the negative campaigning that occurred and voters were simply turned off with voting at all.The NJ State Election Commission noted that more than $8.5 million from outside groups was spent on state contests last week, the highest ever recorded in the state’s history. A considerable portion of that money backed Houghtaling and Downey as well as other Democrat assembly hopefuls in South Jersey contested districts.With Angelini and Casagrande out in Trenton, Beck said she fully expects the new assembly members “will work together with me. That’s what we’re all elected to do, work for the people we represent, that’s why they sent us to Trenton in the first place.” The senator said the three officials will coordinate ideas and noted that she already knows Houghtaling is a hard worker and has been tireless for Neptune Township. Although she does not know Downey as well, she said she is anxious to work with her, knows her reputation as an attorney, and feels she is very bright and eager to do her best in the Assembly for the 11th district. “I look forward to working with both of them. At the end of the day, it’s all about being good representatives for all the people in our district.” Beck said.last_img read more
