A Nashville, Tennessee doctor charged in Kentucky with illegally prescribing painkillers lost his medical license for several years after fatally shooting his wife of one year and her mother after his wife filed for divorce in 1986.
It's hard to say exactly what convicted Diane Downs in the shooting of her children, a terrible event that played out on a dark night in 1983.

A Salem-News.com series that began May 1st 2007 about deadly toxic contamination at the now-closed El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Orange County, California, seemed like unwelcome news at the time to City of Irvine officials and also the public representative for the Irvine Ranch Water District. Loose lips do sink ships, but so do plenty of other things. The ship in this case, was a huge development project planned by Lenar Homes that would have turned the dangerously polluted base into an upper end housing community and public park. Construction ground to a halt and the base is now being used to store automobiles.

Deputies in Washington County say a man trying to elude deputies Thanksgiving night crashed into a Jack in the Box restaurant at 5:35 PM. The man was arrested after attempting to run away from the crash. Sheriff's Office Spokesman Dave Thompson says the deputy used a Taser when the suspect was about to escape. Thompson says it began around 5:30 PM Thursday, when a Washington County Sheriff's Deputy was dispatched to a location near SW 170th Avenue and SW Tualatin Valley Highway. "A citizen reported that a man had threatened him after pulling up next to him in his car. The citizen pointed out the SUV to the deputy as it drove by them." Thompson says the deputy caught up to the vehicle at SW 170th Avenue and SW Baseline Road.
First and Foremost, I wanted to express a future, a future which if we allow such conflicts to continue or to believe those whose jobs seem to etched on creating such conflict, we will have failed our posterity and left the burden for them to resolve such a tragedy as Palestine.

The Trump Administration’s actions to withhold substantial parts of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s record are alleged to have violated the constitutional separation of powers and hindered Senators from fulfilling their constitutional duty of advice and consent on the President’s nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States.
