PHUONG LE Associated Press Published 12:39 PM EDT Oct 17, 2018 SEATTLE (AP) — The Army Corps of Engineers has revived an environmental review of a controversial coal-export project in Washington a year after state environmental regulators denied the project a key permit. Washington Ecology Director Maia Bellon expressed concerns about the Corps' decision to restart work on the federal permitting process while some U.S. senators in the coal-producing states of Montana and Wyoming have urged the federal agency to push ahead with permitting the $680 million terminal along the Columbia River to export coal to Asia.

Weeks ago, as I began reading the new book “The Common Good,” the villainous pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli was being sentenced to seven years in prison for fraud.As I was finished the book, the nation watched in awe as a generation of young students — children, really — staged some 800 protests around the country including in Madison. Those “March For Our Lives” protests, part of the #NeverAgain movement, declared war on the easy availability of guns — and on the National Rifle Association’s grip on our politicians — after the recent massacre at a South Florida high school and other shootings.My timing seemed serendipitous. On one hand, the appalling greed and coarseness of Shkreli personified how far we have drifted as a nation from acceptance of a “common good” in American society.The anti-gun protests, on the other, exemplified how an organic and cooperative action by a mass of engaged … [Read more...] about #NeverAgain teens revive concept of a ‘common good’

Half a century ago, Indiana was one of the powerhouses of college men’s swimming. The Hoosiers won six consecutive NCAA titles from 1968-73 under legendary coach James “Doc’’ Counsilman, a run that began a year after Ray Looze was born. “I might be the only person in our program that was alive at that time,’’ said Looze, the Hoosiers’ head coach since 2002. “It’s humbling to see our name up there. It hasn’t happened in a long time.’’ Another night of stellar performances at the NCAA men’s swimming and diving championships kept the Hoosiers on top of the team standings Friday, putting them on the brink of ending that 45-year drought. Indiana got top-three finishes from Ian Finnerty, who won the 100-yard breaststroke; Blake Pieroni, second in the 200 freestyle; Michael Hixon, third in 3-meter diving; and Vini Lanza, third in the 100 butterfly. That powered the Hoosiers to 325 points, 19 more than Texas … [Read more...] about Indiana revives history in NCAA swimming push
