    <p>A federal appeals court ruled Friday that a lower court was wrong to bar the Trump administration from taking $3.6 billion from military construction projects for a border wall.</p><p>A panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that El Paso County and the nonprofit Border Network for Human Rights did not have the standing to challenge President Donald Trump’s redirecting funds from more than 100 military construction projects, including a $20 million road project at a base located in the city. The appeals court found that neither the county nor the Border Network proved it was directly harmed by Trump’s move. The court reversed a December 2019 ruling by U.S. District Judge David Briones.</p>

    This week's death toll from fires in Oregon, Washington and California now stands at 18, as at least 100 major fires burn in 11 western states.

Oregon's governor said Thursday that dozens may be missing in her state. The monstrous fires are...

    In certain situations you may be able to obtain emergency drinking water from fire hydrants. Should you do so, and is this even legal you may ask? For the most part, opening a fire hydrant on a municipal water line is against the law and should never be attempted. Secondly, if the hydrant is still pressurized, the force of the unregulated water could cause injury or even death. Also, if citizens begin randomly opening fire hydrants, this may result in a loss of pressure when it is needed for actual firefighting.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) — Gov. JB Pritzker’s emergency rules that aim to enforce mandatory masks and social distancing in businesses across the state are now in effect.

Steven Reick, R-Woodstock, but failed in a vote of 6 to 5. The failure to suspend the rules meant they officially went into effect. The six votes to suspend were all by Republican members of the committee.
