    When hate crime charges were brought against four suspects accused of kidnapping and torturing a schizophrenic 18-year-old man yesterday, it was not immediately clear if the charges stemmed from the victim’s race or from the fact that he was mentally-challenged. The AP reports today that the four suspects were charged with two separate hate crimes, one based on the victim’s race and the other based on his disability. Lawyers for the four suspects portrayed them as responsible adults and asked a judge to grant them bail so they could return home while they await trial. The Associated Press reports the...
  • Owl flies into Covington police car, causes crash

    An owl flew into a Covington police officer's cruiser early Thursday (Dec. 24), pecking and scratching the officer and leading him to drive into a ditch, Chief Tim Lentz said. Officer Lance Benjamin received only minor scratches from the odd Christmas Eve encounter and was able to finish his shift. Lentz said he thought someone was playing a joke on him when he received a 1:45 a.m. text message that Benjamin had been in an accident involving a nocturnal bird of prey. "Surely nothing as outrageous as an owl flying into a police car could happen. I imagined the next...

    3D Print ^ | August 6, 2015 | Eddie Krassenstein
    ItÂ’s been close to six months since we initially covered the Covington, Kentucky-based company Plus-Mfg and their unique take on metal 3D printing. Whereas other companies use lasers to sinter or melt metal powders one layer at a time, Plus-Mfg takes a different approach, combining old technology with new. Unveiling their +1000k 3D printer in March of this year at Automate 2015 in Chicago, Plus-Mfg impressed many within the crowd. The +1000k uses inert gas shielded arc welding technology to rapidly print using multiple metal materials, one layer at a time. When compared to other technologies such as direct metal...

    Last month, Senator Dianne Feinstein and other Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released the executive summary of their final report investigating the CIA's controversial detention and interrogation program. As part of their study, the Democrats compiled twenty case studies, which were intended to address claims made by the CIA regarding the efficacy of its interrogations. One of those case studies focused on the identification and arrest of Ali Saleh Kahlah al Marri, who was freed from a US prison just days ago. Al Marri served as a "sleeper" operative for al Qaeda inside the US in 2001....

    October 12 marks the 12th anniversary of the bombing of the USS Cole. The grim milestone comes as President Obama faces mounting questions about his administration's dereliction of duty during the murderous attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. And it comes just a day after resurgent al-Qaida thugs pulled off the drive-by assassination of a top Yemeni security official who worked at the U.S. embassy in Sanaa. These are not "bumps in the road." These are gravesites on the blood-spattered path to surrender. Seventeen U.S. sailors died in the brutal suicide attack on the guided Navy missile destroyer as...

    Vice President Biden doubled down on the bad intelligence excuse in last night's debate when the question of the deaths of American personnel in Libya was raised. Among other stories today, Senator Bob Corker and The Daily Beast's Eli Lake apparently seem to know at lot more about what happened in Benghazi that night than the President and Vice President. Senator Corker will become the senior Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee next year. The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin reports: This week he had extensive meetings with the FBI and intelligence officials on the ground in Benghazi as well as...

    Participants in a Federal Drug Administration (FDA) protocol at TCA Cellular Therapy utilizing stem cells to treat lower limb ischemia are experiencing increased mobility and decreased pain in lower legs. Lower limb ischemia is a condition where plaque build-up causes decreased circulation in the lower leg. Symptoms of the condition include intense pain and swelling. Study participants may have had different factors that contributed to their condition: a family history of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), history of smoking and other vascular conditions. Common among them however, were that more traditional treatments (utilizing stents and grafts) were ineffectual and that the...

    Gainesville, VA Times ^ | 11/29/06 | Tara Slate Donaldson
    Brentsville District Supervisor Wally Covington (R) caused a stir last week when he proposed that the county institute a one-year moratorium on all new residential rezonings. Covington's resolution, which comes up for a board vote next Tuesday, would prohibit rezonings for homes until Dec. 31, 2007, "or until the 2007 General Assembly passes a comprehensive transportation plan to reduce traffic gridlock in Prince William County, whichever comes first." Reaction has been mixed. Newly-elected board Chairman Corey Stewart (R) said he is "absolutely 100 percent" in support of Covington's plan. "We're working on it. We're talking to everybody," he said. "I'd...

    Ex-roomie's arrest well-urned By Shelly Whitehead Post staff reporter Today's criminal justice stumper comes from Covington, where this week police arrested a 36-year-old man for allegedly swiping the ashes of his ex- lover's dead brother, then refusing to return the cremation urn because, as he told officers, "He wanted it to sit and fill with water." So, the question is, with what was James W. Skean charged? If you guessed something like, desecration of a grave site, kidnapping or even attempted reconstitution of a human, go back to law school. As morbidly offbeat as the plunder in this case was,...

    'John' letters target prostitution Warnings come from the mayor By Jeanne Houck Post staff reporter Covington Mayor Irvin "Butch" Callery has been sending out a very different kind of "Dear John" letter for about a year, and he's hopeful it's putting a dent in the prostitution trade in the city. The letters, part of Covington's effort to reshape its once tawdry reputation as a haven for strip clubs and street walkers, are sent by registered mail to the homes of men convicted of soliciting prostitution, saying they are not welcome to practice their vice in the city.

    Covington Bishop Roger Foys announced Friday that he will begin celebrating what is known as Tridentine Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption starting Nov. 21. He will celebrate the first Mass at 2 p.m. On subsequent Sundays, the Latin Mass will be celebrated in the cathedral at 12:15 p.m. Foys announced the Latin service Friday and said it was being reinstituted in response to requests from members of the diocese. Pope John Paul II and Pope Paul VI before him approved Tridentine services under the church's 1962 Missal for use worldwide. The Tridentine Mass got its name because...
