American imprisoned in Cuba says goodbye to family

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 06:45

FILE - In this Nov. 27, 2012, file photo, provided by James L. Berenthal, jailed American Alan Gross poses in Havana, Cuba. A lawyer for an American who has spent more than four years imprisoned in Cuba said Monday that his client cannot take life in prison much longer and has said his goodbyes to his wife and a daughter. Alan Gross was arrested in Cuba in 2009 while working covertly in the Communist-run country to set up Internet access. His attorney, Scott Gilbert, said in a statement Monday that his client "has withdrawn" and told him "life in prison is not a life worth living." Gross has previously said through his lawyer that his 65th birthday, which took place in May, would be the last one that he "celebrates in Havana, one way or the other." (AP Photo/James L.

Two men arrested in Tennessee church air-conditioning thefts

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 06:38
By Tim Ghianni NASHVILLE Tenn. (Reuters) - Two men have been arrested and charged with stealing $21,000 worth of air-conditioning systems from four rural Tennessee churches during a summer heat wave, apparently to sell as scrap, police said on Monday. Donald Ray Hyatt, 42, and Cody Lebron Pace, 21, both of Cleveland, Tennessee, were charged with four counts of theft of over $1,000, said Bradley County Sheriff's spokesman Bob Gault. "All you can do is try to lead them to Christ, hope they repent and put them in jail," said Bill Casteel, longtime elder at Union Grove Church of Christ in Cleveland, who previously told Reuters the thieves would face hellfire for eternity if they weren't caught on earth. Casteel said all the Sunday school classes have been held together in the auditorium, which is the only room in the church that still has an air conditioner, because the classrooms are too stuffy.

U.S. judge slows abortion restrictions tide by striking down Alabama law

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 06:23
By Verna Gates BIRMINGHAM Ala. (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday ruled unconstitutional an Alabama law that threatened to close three of the state's five abortion clinics, while a trial opened in Texas with an abortion rights group trying to overturn restrictions imposed in that state. A number of abortion clinics have closed in recent months due to laws passed in 11 U.S. states requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ruled Alabama's law imposed an undue burden on a woman's ability to choose to have an abortion by making it unnecessarily difficult to obtain the procedure. "The evidence compellingly demonstrates that the requirement would have the striking result of closing three of Alabama's five abortion clinics," the judge wrote.
