Herb Jackson North Jersey Record Published 6:42 AM EDT Oct 15, 2018 1st District Parts of Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties Democratic incumbent Rep. Donald Norcross, 60, of Camden, is seeking a third term against Republican Paul E. Dilks, 50, a reverse mortgage specialist and former radio personality from Washington Township. Dilks has seized on some of President Donald Trump’s themes, such as declaring solidarity with a Veterans of Foreign Wars post that said it would not watch NFL games as long as players kneel during the national anthem. Dilks also said he would support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who arrived as children if they pay for a wall on the Mexican border through annual fees.

Bizuayehu Tesfaye/Las Vegas Review-Journal @bizutesfaye After 23 years informing the public for the Las Vegas Fire Department and a nearly 50-year career in firefighting, it’s fair to say that Tim Szymanski knows a lot about fire.

Caitlin McGlade Louisville Courier Journal Published 11:19 p.m. UTC Aug 14, 2018 Hundreds of thousands of thrill-seekers will flock to the Kentucky State Fair this month looking for a chance to spin, flip, flop and drop, all in the name of fun. Should parents worry as their children lock their lap bars? The state fair in Louisville, which starts its 10-day run on Thursday, hasn't had a notable ride-related injury since 2004. That's a better record than the Ohio State Fair, where a man was killed and several other people were injured by a ride failure in 2017. In that incident, The Fireball, which swings passengers 40 feet above the midway while spinning them at 13 revolutions per minute, broke apart, throwing the man 50 feet to his death. An improved version of The Fireball is one of about 50 amusement rides set up this week at the state fairgrounds in South Louisville. The rides will all be checked by six state ride inspectors and five electricians … [Read more...] about Can you be sure Kentucky State Fair midway rides are safe?
