The Latest: Israel says could alter holy site security Israel's minister of public security says metal detectors set at the entrance to a major Jerusalem shrine that angered Palestinians could be removed if police have another way of ensuring security there. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has confirmed that his decision to freeze ties with Israel, as a protest against Israeli policies at a major Jerusalem holy site, also includes a suspension of security coordination. Coordination between Israeli troops and Abbas-loyal forces in the West Bank, largely against common foe Hamas, has been a constant in frequently hostile Israeli-Palestinian relations. The official Palestinian news agency Wafa quoted Abbas as saying Sunday that "when we made these decisions, we took a firm and decisive stance, especially with regard to security coordination." Israel's defense minister says it can live without security cooperation with the Palestinians, but they will suffer if Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas carries through with his promise to do so. Following conflicts over a Jerusalem holy site, Abbas announced Friday he would "freeze" ties with Israel "on all levels" until the new security measures Israel imposed at the site after a deadly shooting there were removed. A neighbor, an off-duty soldier, heard the screams, rushed to the home and opened fire, wounding the attacker. A top adviser to the Palestinian president says they are holding a series of consultations with various countries to try and lower tensions in Jerusalem over a holy shrine. Abbas announced Friday he would "freeze" ties with Israel "on all levels" until the new security measures Israel imposed at the site after a deadly shooting there were removed. ...

Police: 1 woman dead in triple stabbing in Richmond RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Police say a 50-year-old woman is dead in a triple stabbing in Virginia's capital city. Police say officers responding to a call in Richmond late Saturday found three women and a man. Police say the three women had been stabbed. Two of the women were taken to the hospital with injuries that aren't thought to be life threatening. The third woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Police identified her as Vivian L. Robinson. Police say detectives are investigating and consulting with prosecutors to determine possible charges. ... Pubdate: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:40:37 UT

Russian ambassador to US concludes assignment Kislyak's successor has not been announced, although it is widely expected to be Anatoly Antonov, a deputy foreign minister and former deputy defense minister seen as a hardliner regarding the United States. During a long diplomatic career, Kislyak has led the life of a fairly typical global envoy, making himself a reliable presence on the circuit of receptions, teas and forums that make up the calendar of any ambassador. Early in his tenure, he often opened the doors of the Russian Embassy, hosting dinners for foreign policy professionals, Pentagon officials, journalists and Capitol Hill staffers. ...

I-195 lane shifts to be removed this week in Providence PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Lanes that were shifted on Interstate 195 due to maintenance work on the Iway Bridge are set to be removed this week in Providence. WPRI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2eFP1gj ) that the state Department of Transportation will close some eastbound lanes Sunday night to remove the temporary concrete barriers. All lanes will be back to normal by Monday morning. Crews will repeat the process on westbound lanes Monday night and put down permanent lane striping on Tuesday. The news station reports that the work depends on the weather. ___ Information from: WPRI-TV, http://www.wpri.com ... Pubdate: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:38:30 UT

Divided UK, inconclusive election could put brakes on Brexit The two Britons — a "leave" supporter and a "remainer" — represent the great divide in a country that stepped into the unknown just over a year ago, when British voters decided by 52 percent to 48 percent to end more than four decades of EU membership. Since the shock referendum result, work on negotiating the divorce from the EU has slowed to a crawl as the scale and complexity of the challenge becomes clearer. After an election last month clipped the wings of Britain's Conservative government, remainers are gaining in confidence. "Since the general election I've been more optimistic that at least we're headed toward soft Brexit, and hopefully we can reverse Brexit altogether," said Hopkinson, chairman of pro-EU group London4Europe. First the British government lost a Supreme Court battle over whether a vote in Parliament was needed to begin the Brexit process. [...] voters stripped May's Conservatives of their parliamentary majority, severely denting May's authority — and her ability to hold together a party split between its pro-and anti-EU wings. Since the June 8 election, government ministers have been at war, providing the media with a string of disparaging, anonymously sourced stories about one another. The prospect of tumbling out of the bloc — with its frictionless single market in goods and services — and into a world of tariffs and trade barriers has given Britain's economy the jitters. The group says to ease the pain, Britain should remain in the EU's single market and customs union during a transitional period after Brexit. ... Pubdate: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:38:21 UT

Trump asserts all agree he has 'complete power' to pardon WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said Saturday that he has "complete power" to issue pardons, an assertion that comes amid investigations into Russian interference in last year's presidential election. The Washington Post recently reported that Trump has inquired about the authority he has as president to pardon aides, relatives or even himself in connection with the widening investigation into Russian interference in the election and whether any Trump associates were involved. Congressional lawmakers say eldest son and his former campaign chairman won't be forced to testify publicly next week as part of the Russia election meddling investigation. Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and top White House aide, is scheduled to speak behind closed doors with the Senate intelligence committee on Monday and the House intelligence committee on Tuesday. Trump defended his son in one of the tweets, saying he "openly gave his e-mails to the media & authorities whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!" Trump's namesake has become a focus of the investigation after it was revealed that he, Kushner and Manafort met with Russian representatives at Trump Tower in June 2016. The Post on Friday cited anonymous U.S. officials who described U.S. intelligence intercepts of Ambassador Sergey Kislyak's descriptions of his meetings with Sessions. ...

Authorities: Man missing after wave swept him off sandbar The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection's environmental conservation police on Saturday identified the missing man as 28-year-old George Swaby of Bridgeport. Police say Swaby and two other people had been walking on the sandbar Friday that leads to the island off Silver Sands State Park in Milford when a wave forced two of them into Long Island Sound. ...

Classical Christian education thrives in Wichita (AP) — An increasing number of students in Wichita are attending Christian schools with an education model derived from Greek and Middle Ages philosophies along with a strong Christian worldview. Reading classical books is emphasized throughout the schooling, with common texts including, Pinocchio, C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia, ''The City of God by St. Augustine, 19th century novels such as Les Miserables and David Copperfield and Virgil's Aeneid. Classical Christian education operates off of the premise that "the good, the true and the beautiful"— a phrase derived from Plato — are objective qualities that exist separately from any individual's opinion. For the 2011-2012 school year, private schools averaged a tuition of $10,940, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. ... Pubdate: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:33:58 UT

Dedication: Bayou Teche handicap-accessible paddling docks (AP) — The national water trail along Bayou Teche has four new handicap-accessible floating docks for canoers and kayakers, and two of them will be dedicated in the coming week. The other end is angled so debris and floating plants drift down the bayou with the current rather than piling up against the dock. Guidry says the Federal Highway Administration provided $83,400 for the docks through its Recreational Trails Program. ... Pubdate: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:33:58 UT

Some urge sprinkler mandates across US after Honolulu fire [...] a week after a massive fire broke out one floor below her apartment, killing three neighbors, Pellerin and her family "definitely want sprinklers" installed — even if it means spending thousands of dollars. Despite local lawmakers' efforts to require older buildings to install sprinkler systems, officials estimate about 300 high-rises on Oahu still lack the fire prevention measure. Across the United States, cities have a mixed bag of laws on whether older high-rise apartment buildings must install fire sprinklers that weren't required when the towers were first built. In the inferno's aftermath, Honolulu's fire chief said sprinklers would have contained the blaze to the unit where it started, possibly saving the lives of those who died in nearby apartments. After a 2013 fire, the building's association asked an engineering firm for cost estimates to replace the fire alarm system and install sprinklers. In 1993, San Francisco required that high-rise commercial buildings and tourist hotels be retrofitted with sprinklers, but the mandate excluded residential and historical buildings. In Chicago, a fire that killed six people at a downtown county government building in 2003 prompted officials to enact a host of safety measures. Two years later, the city passed what is called the Life Safety Evaluation Ordinance, which requires residential buildings 80 feet (24 meters) or higher that were built before 1975 to be equipped with various safety features such as voice communication systems and fire-rated doors and frames in stairways. ...

Groups make DIY bike lanes to show US cities what could be DALLAS (AP) — A makeshift bike lane divider made of painted two-by-fours and PVC pipes lasted three days on a busy Dallas street last month before the city removed it, which was two days longer than its creators expected. The $100 structure was the work of the Dallas Transformation Department, one of several like-minded groups of anonymous Twitter users who have taken a do-it-yourself approach to making road improvements in cities stretching from New York and Boston to San Francisco. Activists say a flower planted in a pothole or a line of cones or toilet plungers to keep cars from drifting into bike lanes can have the magical psychological effect of getting drivers to slow down and watch for cyclists and pedestrians. Business owners complain when street parking is replaced with bike lanes, and firefighters worry that separated bike lanes could impede their emergency responses. [...] there's usually a shortage of funds, said Jared White, who manages Dallas' bicycle transportation program within the Mobility and Street Services Department. Dallas spent an estimated $300 and three hours removing the unauthorized bike lane divider because it didn't meet federal and state regulations. "The bicycle lane endangered any bicyclist using the illegal lane by exposing them to head-on collisions with a motor vehicle legally travelling in the marked travel lane," he said. ...

Amid flaring tensions, Israel installs cameras at holy site JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel set up new security cameras Sunday at the entrance to a sensitive Jerusalem holy site as officials consider alternatives to recently installed metal detectors that set off a weekend of violence and prompted the Palestinian president to declare a severing of ties. The official Palestinian news agency Wafa quoted Abbas as saying that "when we made these decisions, we took a firm and decisive stance, especially with regard to security coordination." In Israel, there was a growing debate over the initial decision to install the metal detectors at the most sensitive site of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. [...] the top Muslim cleric of Jerusalem, Mohammed Hussein, told the Voice of Palestine he demands a complete return to procedures that were in place before the initial attack at the shrine, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount. Late Friday night, a 20-year-old Palestinian identified as Omar al-Abed jumped over the fence of the Halamish settlement near Ramallah and entered a home, surprising a family that was celebrating a new grandchild during their traditional Sabbath dinner. At his weekly Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu vowed the killer's home would be demolished swiftly in retribution and those who incited and glorified his act would be dealt with. Since the beginning of the events I've conducted a series of meetings and evaluations with the all the security officials, including those on the ground. ... Pubdate: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:33:05 UT

Tool to help police in opioid crisis draws privacy concern TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey is the latest state amid a national opioid crisis to consider allowing police and law enforcement officials to access its prescription drug monitoring database without a court order, pitting patient rights to privacy against the government's ability to investigate so-called doctor shopping. Republican state Sen. Robert Singer introduced the legislation Tuesday after discussions with a county prosecutor, arguing that the legislation will help officials target physicians who might be illicitly prescribing powerful prescription medications. Across the country, states have implemented prescription drug monitoring databases that allow pharmacists, doctors and law enforcement to track who may be giving out too many controlled substances. In California, the Supreme Court ruled recently that the state Medical Board can dig through prescription drug records without a warrant or subpoena. Roseanne Scotti, state director of the nonprofit nonpartisan Drug Policy Alliance, says allowing broader access sets the state down a "slippery slope" toward privacy erosion. "Broadly allowing local police to look into people's private medical records without a warrant or reasonable suspicion is appalling," Scotti said. ... Pubdate: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:25:26 UT

North Carolina: Search on for armed man in national forest MILLS RIVER, N.C. (AP) — Authorities are telling visitors to stay away from a national forest in North Carolina while they search for an armed suspect, saying he escaped by stealing a mountain bike at gunpoint. Sheriff's deputies say they were chasing Stroupe's vehicle Saturday through an area popular with hikers and campers, adding he stole the mountain bike and later pedaled into the woods. ...
