The card company said they texted a code to my...

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri suggested the more serious charges against the surviving teens at a news conference Monday, a day after the Palm Harbor crash once again highlighted...

The Senate vote was 27 to 13, and the House followed by agreeing 88 to 31 to supersede the Republican governor’s wishes on the tax plan and force the changes into law. Lawmakers marshaled together a coalition of moderate Republicans, conservatives and Democrats to overcome the governor’s opposition to seeing...

And that’s the message I’m trying to get out there.” Haque, 35, who came to Toronto with his mother from Bangladesh when he was 15, turned his back on an opportunity to go to law school about eight years ago to follow his passion for doodling and design, and created Wise...

    Oregon’s Democratic lawmakers came up with the most detailed plan yet on Thursday for fixing the state’s wobbly budget by tapping business coffers. House Speaker Tina Kotek would place a 0.95 percent tax on annual business sales in excess of $5 million. About 5,000 businesses would pay the new tax. The Democrats’ gross receipts tax proposal would replace the existing corporate income tax, which produces about $1 billion in revenues a year. The new tax would take effect Jan. 1, 2018. Businesses with sales under the $5 million threshold would pay a flat $250 annual filing fee. Businesses with less...
  • Why are cities allowing bicycle theft to go virtually unpunished?

    ... In Los Angeles and virtually every city in North America, bicycle theft has almost become a crime without consequence, so widespread that it is treated less as a problem and more like one of the costs of urban life. Thieves can quickly cut locks on a target that serves as its own getaway vehicle, sell their ill-gotten goods to fencers for pennies on the dollar, and rest assured they will almost never be busted. Law enforcement officials, busy with other priorities, rarely commit to sustained campaigns to bust theft rings or even pursue arrests.
