Houston ship lane remains shut as cleanup drags on; Exxon cuts output

US Coast Guard photo shows barge loaded with marine fuel oil partially submerged in the Houston Ship ChannelBy Erwin Seba TEXAS CITY, Texas (Reuters) - The closure of the vital Houston Ship Channel looked set to extend to a fourth day after the Coast Guard struggled to finish cleaning up after an oil barge spill on Monday, threatening to force deeper production cuts at local refiners. Earlier on Monday, the Coast Guard had told ship operators that it should be able to reopen the waterway later in the day, resuming at least some supply of crude oil to more than one-tenth of the nation's refining capacity. "We will begin the process of a tapered ... not a floodgate resumption of marine traffic," Captain Brian Penoyer, commander of U.S. Coast Guard sector Houston-Galveston and captain of the Port of Houston, told reporters on Monday. "We anticipate re-opening the Houston Ship Channel as soon as we can," he said.


NYC jail guard charged in death of inmate who ate disinfectant

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 10:53
By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - A former senior guard at New York City's main jail complex was arrested on Monday on a federal charge that he deprived a mentally ill inmate of medical aid after he swallowed a corrosive disinfectant. Terrence Pendergrass, 49, was a captain on duty at Rikers Island in August 2012 when an inmate in the mental health assessment unit swallowed a so-called "soap ball," according to a criminal complaint. Unaware that rules require the soap ball to be diluted in water, an inexperienced guard gave it to the inmate, Jason Echevarria, so he could clean up sewage flooding his cell, the complaint said. Instead, Echevarria swallowed the ball, which contained highly caustic ammonium chloride, it said.
