    NEWPORT, Ind. (AP) - Army contractors halted operations Saturday at a western Indiana complex built to destroy a deadly nerve agent after nearly 500 gallons of caustic wastewater spilled in a contained area. No workers were injured or exposed to the hydrolysate, a byproduct of the destruction of the agent, when it leaked onto the floor of a sealed area at the Newport Chemical Depot, depot spokesman Dennis Lindsey said. The facility was to be shut down until the spill was cleaned up and its cause determined, Lindsey said. The western Indiana facility destroys the Cold War-era chemical weapon VX...

    ILION — Herkimer County officials vowed to help affected Remington Arms employees Monday afternoon as news spread the gun manufacturer will layoff more than 100 of its employees by the end of the week. Herkimer County Legislature Chairman Vincent Bono said he learned about the 105 layoffs through county Administrator James Wallace and then from Karin Zipko of Herkimer County Working Solutions. “We're gearing up our programs that are offered, including retraining and job searches,” said Bono, R-Schuyler, during a telephone interview Monday. “It's unclear whether some will be called back. That's unknown.” “It's unfortunate,” added Bono about the layoffs,...

    Whether it be a mass casualty shooting at a school or other public space in the United States or the regularly occurring gun violence on the streets of Chicago, “the people who are civilized must care enough to stop it now,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson said on Saturday. While speaking to the audience at the Rainbow-PUSH headquarters on the South Side, Jackson reflected on Friday’s shooting in Connecticut, as well as the ongoing violence on the streets of Chicago. Noting that, “It’s easier (in the United States) to buy a gun than a cup of coffee,” Jackson said, “None of...

    ......The Romney campaign paid its bill last week, about a month after the city sent its invoice. The Obama bill, on the other hand, was sent in May and has not been paid. City spokeswoman Tara Finnigan said the city's billing system would be sending past-due notices. About three weeks ago, the Democratic National Committee contacted the city and told officials to deal with the Secret Service. The DNC and the Republican National Committee split their Newport Beach event proceeds with the respective campaigns. ......

    Oregon Senate Democrats announced Wednesday that state Sen. Joanne Verger, D-Coos Bay, will not seek re-election next year. In a statement, Verger said she's in good health and looking forward to finishing her current term. But she's retiring after that. Several weeks ago, Verger's House colleague, Rep. Jean Cowan, D-Newport, announced she would also be retiring from the Legislature. As a result, Oregon could likely see two very competitive races on the coast, with the control of the current, 30-30 House and 16-14 Senate in play. Question: Will House Co-Speaker Arnie Roblan, D-Coos Bay, take a run

    The navy has scuttled plans to make the USS Saratoga a museum in favor of another more modern aircraft carrier, the USS John F. Kennedy. The Saratoga, now docked in Newport, R.I., will almost certainly be scrapped. Six ships have been named Saratoga in American naval history – three sailing ships from the Revolution, War of 1812 and Civil War, respectively, a cruiser and two aircraft carriers. "Every ship named Saratoga has had a strong presence in the history of this nation," said Larry Gordon of Wilton, the unofficial USS Saratoga historian. "It isn’t like we’re losing the ship. You...

    Lately I've been thinking of four left wing incidents that happened in Maine over the course of two years. I feel I should get them off my chest I think some of them would be interesting and I think others should know about them. The first one involves an incident that took place in the Bangor metro area two years ago. This freind of mine and his family were having trouble. He had difficulty getting by and he worked at Edwards Shop'n'save in Hampden outside Bangor. He was on food stamps and his wife was laid off and couldn't get...

    LONDON (AFP) - Police have revealed they were investigating the dumping of a pig's head outside a mosque on the first full day of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The head was found outside the Jamia Mosque in Newport, southeast Wales, on Saturday. The Koran strictly forbids Muslims to eat pork. "We treat all incidents of hate crime seriously and are pursuing a number of lines of inquiry to identify the offender," said Gwent Police Superintendent Simon Prince on Friday. Nobody at the mosque was available for comment but Sheikh Mohammad Thair Ullah, the chairman of the nearby Shah...

    NEWPORT BEACH – Moving a pile of sand could cost several homeowners here an even bigger pile of cash. The California Coastal Commission on Monday accused five residents with beachfront property of flattening protected sand dunes to improve their ocean views. The commission is ordering the dunes rebuilt – a process that could reach into the six-figure range. Considered important habitat for threatened birds, the dunes were allegedly seen as an obstruction by residents whose ocean vistas were blocked by the 3- to 6-foot-tall dunes. "Sand dunes are loved and hated," Newport Assistant City Manager Dave Kiff said. "The residents...

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Oct. 18, 2005) -- When Marine 1st Sgt. John S. Kob returned home from Iraq in June, his family was ready to receive him with open arms, but 140,000 arms could get exhausting. Kob’s unit, 1st Battalion 1st Marine Regiment, was adopted by the city of Newport Beach in December 2003, after the unit’s first return from Iraq. Newport Beach’s residents have provided everything from care packages for deployed Marines to emergency funds for families visiting their wounded heroes in medical facilities across the globe. The city's most recent gesture occurred Sept. 29 when they hosted a...

    Final preparations are under way at the Newport Chemical Disposal Facility, where workers are just days away from starting the destruction of VX nerve agent. Col. Jesse Barber, Chemical Materials Agency's project manager of Alternative and Approaches, goes over his checklist every day in anticipation of startup, he said. The 1,269 tons of the deadly nerve agent VX has been stored at the Newport Chemical Depot since the 1960s. A drop of VX the size of a BB can be lethal, the Army has said. Destruction of this nerve-agent stockpile will remove the risk of a terrorist target and the...

    The Newport City Council unanimously voted this week to turn down a request from the Boy Scouts to rent the building that had, for years, housed the office of Mrs. Santa Claus - Dorothy Grover. The problem with the request, explained City Manager Sam Sasaki after the meeting, was "a question of separation of church and state." Newport resident Tom Gravon had contacted the city administration, and sent a letter to the News-Times on the issue, raising the question of the appropriateness of a municipal government leasing a property to an organization with broad ties to various religions. The building...
