Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan said on Monday it was testing a man who traveled to a West African nation where Ebola has been reported. "Odds are it is not Ebola," said Dr. Jeremy Boal, the hospital's chief medical officer.

Drought forces some boats from shrinking Great Salt Lake in Utah

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 06:48

A large crane lifts a boat out of the Great Salt Lake Marina because of low water levels, west of Salt Lake CityBy Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - Drought forced an early end to the sailing season for some Utah enthusiasts on Monday as a huge crane lifted boats out of the Great Salt Lake State Park Marina, where officials say the water is at its lowest level for more than 50 years. "We've had a couple of tough winters here," said harbor master Dave Shearer, watching as the crane gingerly raised a 37-foot Ranger sailboat out of its slip then lowered it onto a trailer in the parking lot. "Some of the deep draft boats are having to pull out now, rather than make the hard choice of having their keels stuck in the mud all winter 'til the lake comes back up." Fed by four rivers and a handful of streams, the Great Salt Lake sits about 20 miles west of Salt Lake City, stretching 75 miles long and about 35 miles wide. So far, that has forced about 70 boats from the 320-slip marina, where water levels have been dropping consistently.

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.
