Whole South Dakota town for sale at under $400,000

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 07:49
Prospective buyers who want to be masters of their own domains could turn to southwestern South Dakota, where an entire town can be had for $399,000. The owner of Swett, pronounced sweat, is selling the roughly 6-acre (2.5-hectare) town that includes a tavern, a three bedroom house, three trailer homes and a former tire shop about 100 miles (160 km) southeast of Rapid City, South Dakota. Swett's population peaked at 40 residents in the 1940s when it had a post office and grocery store, but now stands at two: owner Lance Benson and his wife, three if you count their dog. Benson acquired Swett in 1998, later gave it up in a divorce settlement and then reacquired the town in 2012.

U.S. justices uphold firms' religious objections to contraception

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 07:46

Pro-choice demonstrators rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court in WashingtonBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ruled that owners of private companies can object on religious grounds to a provision of President Barack Obama's healthcare law that requires employers to provide insurance covering birth control for women. The decision, which applies only to a small number of family or other closely-held companies, means an estimated several thousand women whose health insurance comes via such companies may have to obtain certain forms of birth control coverage elsewhere. In a 5-4 vote along ideological lines, the justices said the companies can seek an exemption from the so-called birth control mandate of the law known as Obamacare. The companies in the case said they did not object to all birth control but certain methods they said were tantamount to abortion, which they oppose for religious reasons.

New Yorkers hold solidarity vigil for slain Israeli teenagers

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 07:44

Three Israeli seminary students seen in combination pictureBy Edith Honan NEW YORK (Reuters) - Several hundred people waving Israeli flags and expressing grief and solidarity held a vigil in New York on Monday after the bodies of three missing Israeli teenagers were found in the occupied West Bank.   The bodies of the teens, who attended a religious school in a Jewish settlement, were found in a field near Hebron, a militant stronghold, not far from a road where they were believed to have been abducted while hitchhiking on June 12, security officials said. Earlier on Monday, U.S. President Barack Obama condemned the killings but called on all parties to exercise restraint.  Mourners gathered on a busy Manhattan street outside the Israeli Consulate and then, carrying placards bearing the names of the three Jewish seminary students, marched to the Isaiah Wall directly across from U.N. headquarters.   "Our hearts are broken.
