ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — St. Paul police say another vehicle was stolen with a dog inside Monday night. “Well, it happened again last night,” the department wrote on Facebook . “We hate to sound like a broken record player but please, don’t leave your vehicle running unattended.” Police did not release details of the latest theft. This is at least the second time this month a dog was stolen with a vehicle in St. Paul, and a third such incident occurred in South St. Paul.

(CNN) In 2009, Senate Democrats spent months courting Republican Charles Grassley in search of bipartisan support for the Affordable Care Act. By that September, President Barack Obama had lost patience. "Let me ask you a question, Chuck," Obama said in an Oval Office meeting he recounted in his 2020 memoir . "Are there any changes -- any at all -- that would get us your vote?" "I guess not, Mr. President," Grassley replied, concluding negotiations. Is Sen. Joe Manchin now reprising Grassley's role on President Joe Biden's Build Back Better plan? If so -- if nothing can ultimately get the West Virginia Democrat to "yes" -- then more wheedling represents a waste of time. The legislation cannot pass without him. But the White House and party leaders, believing they cannot afford to fail, maintain hope that Manchin's vote can be won. That means exploring ways to reshape Biden's plan to meet the senator's objections. How months of … [Read more...] about Is there a version of Biden’s economic plan that Joe Manchin can support?
(CNN) Anger is growing in Democratic ranks over the failure to get President Joe Biden's sweeping agenda through this year despite unified control of Congress, with their party already bracing for what could be a brutal Election Day in next November's midterms. Major issues they promised to deliver on, such as a bill to overhaul voting laws, stand virtually no chance of becoming law. And the biggest ticket item -- the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better plan to dramatically expand the social safety net -- is still mired in talks with West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin , has yet to be drafted into final legislative text or even fully vetted by the Senate parliamentarian. Despite major accomplishments this year, such as passage of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure law and the nearly $2 trillion Covid relief package amid razor thin majorities in both chambers, there's a palpable sense of frustration among Democrats that much more should have been accomplished -- especially given … [Read more...] about ‘A 50-50 Senate sucks’: Dejected Democrats fret over agenda failure amid grim 2022 outlook
(CNN) With Sen. Joe Manchin confirming he's a "no" on President Joe Biden's social spending package , the fate of the bill's $550 bill worth of climate and energy provisions -- and the President's climate agenda -- are now on the line. In a Sunday statement, the West Virginia senator insisted the clean energy transition is "already well underway" in the US but did not mention the deadly and costly threat climate change poses to Americans. Manchin said that investing billions into clean energy "at a rate that is faster than technology or the markets allow will have catastrophic consequences for the American people" and claimed it would increase reliance on foreign supply chains. This stunned many of Manchin's Democratic colleagues in Congress, as well as climate advocates in communication with his office. Before going on recess for the holidays, multiple Democratic lawmakers had told CNN the climate and clean energy provisions were some of the most settled with Manchin, … [Read more...] about ‘I’m kind of speechless’: Democrats scramble to salvage climate provisions after Manchin sinks Build Back Better
NEW YORK - Growing up in St. Mary's County, Md., where the Potomac and Patuxent rivers meet the Chesapeake Bay, Tamika Tremaglio loved the water and the south Maryland woods, but nothing moved her quite like cash register tape. Tremaglio, the new head of the NBA players' union, was born two months before her mother, Pamela Langley, enrolled at Morgan State University as an 18-year-old freshman. With grandmothers and aunts stepping in to help care for Tremaglio, it wasn't long before she was helping to keep count in her uncle's tire shop and her family's bars. "I love puzzles and problem-solving," Tremaglio said during an extended interview Thursday at the National Basketball Players Association's Manhattan headquarters. "I was raised by a family of entrepreneurs and have always dealt with numbers. I'd check the cash register sheet and try to find an error, down to the decimal point. Numbers were the way to solve problems. They were the key." Numbers have driven Tremaglio's … [Read more...] about Rainmaker. Boss. Baker.

Their deaths were being investigated as homicides, police said. … [Read more...] about Authorities identify 6 found dead at Milwaukee duplex

Suddenly, you can take out your phone and bet money — a lot of money — on any sporting event in the world. (If you live in New Jersey or a few other states, this is already old news.) Want to wager next week’s paycheck on handball ? Your 401k on a table-tennis tournament in Russia ? Your kid’s college fund on snooker ? You can do it right now. You can do it so easily. In a very funny, very trenchant piece for Defector last week , writer Lauren Theisen details just how terrifyingly easy it is to lose everything quickly: The frictionless way that I was able to give away my savings on there felt extraordinarily dangerous. Once the money was in my account, I could put up hundreds of dollars in less time than I’ve ever ordered a pizza, or even pulled up a movie to stream. In my very first time ever using the app, it took me six minutes to place four bets, and that was with a … [Read more...] about How Not to Lose Your Shirt Gambling on Sports
2 SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) — The governments of Bulgaria and North Macedonia held a joint session Tuesday to improve relations, which have been locked in a historic row and further strained after Bulgaria blocked its Balkan neighbor's bid to join the European Union. The meeting of the two governments in Sofia, Bulgaria's capital, comes a week after Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov visited North Macedonia and agreed with his counterpart in Skopje, Dimitar Kovacevski, to work together to overcome their differences. The two officials reiterated their resolve in Sofia on Tuesday, saying that renewal of dialogue was in the interest of both nations. Petkov said good neighborly relations should be at the center of the effort. “Issues that were sidelined in the last years will be approached," he said. “We have to catch up a lot, but I hope that this will happen fast,” Petkov and Kovacevski announced the creation of working groups to tackle issues such as … [Read more...] about Bulgaria, North Macedonia meet to boost ties, ease strains
0 Weather Firefighters say lighter winds and an increase in humidity Monday are creating favorable conditions for fighting the Big Sur wildfire. Michael Wittner and Kat Schuster , Patch Staff Posted | Updated Reply BIG SUR, CA — The Colorado Fire, which has burned about 700 acres on the Big Sur coast and resulted in about 500 evacuations, was about 35% contained Monday morning, according to CalFire . So far, just a yurt has been damaged, and a fire engine has been partially damaged. The fire was reported at 1,050 acres Sunday morning – the largest wildfire of the year so far – but "better mapping" led CalFire to reduce the estimate to 700 acres. 500 people living in the sparsely populated area between Carmel and Big Sur remain under evacuation orders. The mandatory evacuation order from the Monterey County Sheriff's Office applies to all areas west of 3800 Palo Colorado Road to Highway 1, and south to Bixby … [Read more...] about Colorado Fire 35% Contained, At 700 Acres
