    NEW YORK (AP) — The WNBA suspended Las Vegas Aces coach Becky Hammon for two games Tuesday for comments Hammon allegedly made to former player Dearica Hamby about her pregnancy. Hammon was suspended without pay after the monthslong investigation stemming from Hamby's allegation that she was bullied and manipulated for being pregnant. The WNBA found Hammon violated league and team respect in the workplace policies. The league also rescinded the Aces' first-round pick in the 2025 draft for violating league rules regarding impermissible player benefits. Las Vegas didn't have a 2024 pick in the first round because of a prior...

    MERIWETHER COUNTY, Ga. - An elderly woman who was beaten and burned inside her Meriwether County home has died weeks after the attack, the county's coroner confirmed to Channel 2 Action News. Dorothy Dow, 83, was lying in her bed when three men and a woman kicked in her back door and attacked her in early August, according to police. "These suspects began to demand money from Miss Dow. She pleaded with them that she didn't have any money. They began to brutally beat her,” Sheriff Chuck Smith said. The family said Dow’s right and left arms were broken, and...
  • Election 2015: Harmon’s upset of Edelen stunning in Republican surge

    FRANKFORT — Kentucky Republicans didn't settle for Matt Bevin's win in the governor's race; the GOP scored a major upset with Mike Harmon defeating Democratic incumbent auditor Adam Edelen. Harmon, who was widely outspent, won 52 percent of the vote, throwing up a roadblock to Edelen's future ambitions, perhaps as a challenger next year to U.S. Sen. Rand Paul. Edelen is considered Kentucky Democrats' rising star and best politician, in the mold of populists like Wendell Ford. He ran on a strong record of exposing wasteful spending by special taxing districts, a former commissioner of agriculture and auditing public schools....

    A super PAC supporting Auditor Adam Edelen’s re-election bid has released a Web ad using audio of an MSNBC segment lauding the incumbent Democrat’s speech at Fancy Farm this year. The two-minute video, titled “Big, Important Things,” features MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, on her Aug. 21 program, calling Edelen “the best southern Democratic politician I have seen speak at an event like this (Fancy Farm) since (former Texas Gov.) Ann Richards, since Bill Clinton in his prime.” The ad also includes portions of Edelen’s speech and footage of him at Fancy Farm events. Kentuckians for Honesty in Government released the video...

The question was whether in the aftermath of the attack, when...

    In the final months of his life, Harmon Killebrew outlined the legacy he wanted to leave in the communities where he had lived and played. Ensuring that his Harmon Killebrew Foundation remained strong was a priority, said foundation president Jason Coffel, so he could continue to spread his love for baseball even after death. Killebrew drew up a list of immediate goals: construction of baseball fields for disabled children in the Twin Cities, the state of Idaho and Washington, D.C. (through the nonprofit "Miracle League"), plus a scholarship fund at his alma mater, Payette High School in Payette, Idaho. More...

    California Democrat Jane Harmon tried to sell her influence to end an espionage case against to spies in return for help becoming House Intelligence Committee chairwoman. In a newly released NSA wiretap report, Harmon has been exposed negotiating a quid pro quo deal with an official of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The agreement apparently called for Harmon to sell the influence of her Congressional office by lobbying the Justice Department to reduce espionage charges against two AIPC operatives. In return AIPAC would lobby then minority leader Democrat Nancy Pelosi to name Harmon as the Chair of the...

    Angie Harmon is not afraid to come out and say she doesn’t like how President Obama is handling the job — but she’s sick of having to defend herself from being deemed a racist. "Here's my problem with this, I'm just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama it's not because I'm a racist, it's because I don't like what he's doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you're called a racist,"

    After having a substitute host all week, John Gibson returned to The Big Story today and started off his show by laughing incredulously at Jane Harmon who was trying to argue that Al Qaida in Iraq was only a small part of the insurgency and that the insurgents weren't in a position to know whether their situation was bleak or not. It was absolutely classic. I didn't see if Gibson had a smart-ass smirk but just the audio alone was awesome, particularly when he let out the giggle. I really like Gibby and it's things like this bring a smile...

    BENTON, Ark. (AP) -- Former Saline County prosecutor Dan Harmon, sent to federal prison on drug charges after his conviction in 1997, has been released from custody early because of assistance he gave in a murder conspiracy case. Harmon had been sentenced to 11 years on public corruption and drug charges, but a federal judge in 2003 shortened Harmon's sentence after he helped thwart an attack on a federal agent. Harmon left prison Thursday. Jurors in 1997 found that Harmon extorted money and drugs from defendants in exchange for dropped charges, and also said Harmon conspired with others to...

    WASHINGTON -- U.S. intelligence information on Iran is inadequate and may contain misinformation that spy agencies are accepting as solid, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Tuesday. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., told a Council on Foreign Relations gathering that she and other lawmakers recently received a briefing from intelligence agencies based on information shared with the International Atomic Energy Agency and the U.N. Security Council. Her bottom line: "I remain skeptical — lots of unanswered questions." "The conjecture that I have is that if I were Iran, and I wanted to put out disinformation, it might look...

    Excerpt - “Jesus loves me, my family loves me and some of my friends love me,” former Saline County Prosecutor Dan Harmon says. “That's all you need.” Harmon, who is about to turn 61 and starting life anew, spent eight years in federal custody. He discussed his life in an exclusive interview with the Benton Courier. Harmon was recently released from a federal penitentiary in Springfield, Mo. He said he isn't bitter about anything, but acknowledges that it's “been a long, long time” since he walked as a free man. He has little to say about the convictions that led...

The copies of the report, which is several hundred pages, were placed in committee safes and were not to be opened at least until...
