  • Reminders of 2004 tsunami in Indonesia loom large Dec 24, 2014 6:30 AM
    Ten years after a tsunami hit Banda Aceh,Indonesia, on Dec. 26, 2004, killing 167,000 people, roads and bridges have been rebuilt, there are houses on the beach, trees have grown back, and the millions of tons of debris that covered the island are gone. But for a first-time visitor, reminders of the disaster seem to be everywhere. A sculpture of a giant wave marks Lambaro. The dome of a mosque — torn off its building a mile away — rests in an emerald-green rice field. Water streams down the cave-like walls of the Tsunami Museum, which serves as both a memorial and evacuation site, with a knoll on high ground offering refuge in case another tsunami strikes.

  • Court upholds conviction against former Walker aide Dec 24, 2014 1:01 AM
    MADISON, Wis. — A Wisconsin appeals court has upheld a theft conviction against a former aide of Gov. Scott Walker when he was Milwaukee County executive. The 1st District Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled against Tim Russell in his appeal of his 2012 conviction. Russell was Walker’s deputy chief of staff in 2009 and 2010 and was charged with stealing more than $21,000 from a nonprofit group benefiting veterans. He pleaded guilty to one felony theft count and was sentenced to 2 years in prison. Russell argued on appeal that he was wrongly sentenced for the crime of misconduct in office, rather than theft. He also argued that he was ordered to pay $5,000 more in restitution than was proper. But the appeals court upheld the lower court’s rulings in both instances.

     
  • Montana man recovering after post-game lightning strike Dec 24, 2014 1:01 AM
    BILLINGS, Mont. — A 73-year-old Montana man and lifelong Green Bay Packers fan was among a dozen people who were injured when lightning struck outside Raymond James Stadium after the Packers beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-3 on Sunday. The family of Gary Linse of Billings tells The Billings Gazette that the force of the strike knocked him into the air, causing him to land on his face and lose consciousness. Linse’s daughter, Rachel, said her father suffered bruises, cuts and a black eye and doesn’t remember attending the game. He remained hospitalized in the intensive care unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa with a Packers-themed Christmas tree in his room. Linse and his wife, Ruth, were visiting their daughter in Florida for Christmas and the Packers game was to be one of the highlights of the trip. Ruth Linse says they’ll have to take in another Packers game as a family.

     
  • Illinois posts rules on medical marijuana for kids Dec 24, 2014 1:01 AM
    Illinois officials have posted emergency rules spelling out how the state’s medical marijuana program will be extended to children under a law taking effect Jan. 1. The Department of Public Health posted the regulations online Tuesday. Children with certain health conditions, including seizures from epilepsy, will be able to use non-smokable forms of marijuana. But they will need two doctors to sign forms certifying they think the patient will benefit. The rules expand a medical marijuana advisory board to include a parent or caregiver of a patient under age 18 and a medical professional with experience in pediatrics. The emergency rules are in effect for 150 days. A draft of permanent rules will be published later, which will trigger a 45-day public comment period.

    Man’s best friend is seen as anything but in Iran, where city workers gun down strays and conservatives view pet dogs as a corrupting Western influence. But in a rare animal shelter in the countryside west of Tehran, hundreds of lucky pups have found mercy, and a growing number of Iranians are learning to love them. But outside Tehran, more than 500 dogs find care and affection at the Vafa Animal Shelter, which was established through an endowment in 2004 and is the country’s only licensed animal refuge.

  • Is rider safety the real Achilles heel for Uber and Lyft? Dec 24, 2014 7:33 AM
    The growth of ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft so far has not been hindered by limits from government regulators and campaigns by taxi cab competitors. A bigger threat to the new industry’s impressive start could come from customers — if enough people stop using the services over fears that drivers aren’t safe after scattered anecdotes of previous assaults by Uber drivers.

  • Gay blood donor restrictions discriminatory. congressman says Dec 24, 2014 10:28 AM
    An Illinois congressman says he’s disappointed federal health officials still favor limiting when gay men can donate blood. Rep. Mike Quigley has been working to reverse the Food and Drug Administration’s lifetime ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men. The FDA said Tuesday it favors barring donations from men who have had sex with men in the previous 12 months. The Illinois Democrat says the one-year deferral is still discriminatory. The lifetime ban dates from the early years of the AIDS crisis and was intended to protect the blood supply. Many medical groups say the policy is no longer supported by science, given advances in HIV testing. Blood donations are screened for HIV but testing only detects the virus after it’s been in the bloodstream about 10 days
