Missouri town picks solvency over flood fight as river rises

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 08:53
By Jason McLure COLUMBIA Mo. (Reuters) - A small Missouri town repeatedly threatened by a rising Mississippi River is choosing to let residents fend for themselves this year rather than face potential bankruptcy to pay for another municipally organized fight against flooding. Last year, Clarksville went into debt to fund $400,000 of emergency flood protections, a figure equivalent to the town's annual budget, building a wall of gravel and sandbags to protect antique shops, a lumber yard and a post office downtown. The town government finished repaying the debt on Monday only to learn the Mississippi River is expected to reach 9 feet (2.7 meters) above flood stage at Clarksville in the next seven days, threatening the town's riverfront again. "We're sad, we're hurt, we're disappointed," Mayor Jo Ann Smiley said.

Although the performance aspect was always super fun, I really got a kick out of being an integral part of a team accomplishing the behind-the-scenes stuff for bands. I started my own music publicity firm almost two years ago. Basically my job is to take a bunch

Colorado woman accused of supporting Islamist insurgents in Iraq and Syria

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 08:27
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Federal authorities in Denver have arrested a woman accused of providing material support to Islamist insurgents fighting the governments of Syria and Iraq, and of conspiring to commit an offense against the United States, officials said Wednesday. According to a criminal complaint filed with U.S. District Court in Colorado, Shannon Maureen Conley, born in 1996, attended military training with the U.S. Army Explorers earlier this year, before trying to fly to Syria to meet a co-conspirator only identified as Y.M. Y.M., whom Conley met online last year, told her he was an active member in the insurgent group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIL or ISIS, which recently shortened its name to "Islamic State." The Sunni Muslim militant group is an al Qaeda offshoot which wants to re-create a medieval-style caliphate from the Mediterranean to the Gulf and deems Shi'ite Muslims to be heretics deserving death.
