    MORE than 70 Roman skeletons were discovered on the site of a former hotel in York. The grade two listed building, formerly the Newington Hotel in Mount Vale Drive, overlooks Knavesmire and has been stripped back by developers to create seven new family houses. During the renovation of the Georgian building, developers were surprised to find human remains, and the York Archaeological Trust were called in to assist with the recovery. Developer John Reeves said the development had retained most of its original Georgian features, but the scheme had also involved some "interesting" elements. He said: "The refurb has not...

    The story of five black women who were asked to leave a York County golf course for reportedly playing too slowly is making headlines and causing outrage across the country. The group of regular golfers said they were confronted at the second hole by Steve Chronister, one of the owners of the Grandview Golf Course and a former county commissioner, who accused them of lagging and offered to refund their money if they would leave. They were the only African Americans or all-female groups on the course in Dover Township, according to Sandra Thompson, who posted a detailed account of...

    ..... Schiff accused Republicans of altering a GOP memo that allegedly shows FBI surveillance abuses before they sent the memo to the White House without getting the changes approved by the committee.... There's just one problem with Schiff's story: It appears to be overblown, deceptive, and a desperate attempt to stop the memo... Byron York, a columnist for the Washington Examiner, spoke with sources on the committee who gave insight into the changes that were supposedly made to memo. York tweeted: "Just talked with House Intel source. Said total changes to memo were: A) Unknown number of 'grammatical and clarifying'...

    There you have it, folks. The New York Times. Equating nazi sympathizers with Conservative, blue-collar, middle America because Conservative, blue-collar America equates with hate and therefore anybody can be a nazi (yeah, we caught that), normalizing little boys in make-up (which, of course, would not appeal to any readers who may be in their pedophile demographic) and offering tips on male castration. Who-eee! They really need to lay off the spiked Eggnog over there.

    A New York City couple jumped to their deaths from the 9th-floor window of a 17-story office building because they couldn't afford health care, according to their suicide notes. The Daily Mail reports that eyewitness Perry Kim, 49, was outside the Murray Hill building at around 5:30 a.m. on Friday morning when he heard screaming and saw two people falling from the sky. The bodies of 53-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were found shortly thereafter on 33rd Street between Park and Madison avenues, according to the New York Post. Heartbreaking suicide notes were discovered in the pockets of both...

    Barred from placing a billboard on his property, one Windsor Township property owner decided to warn others of the township's "dictatorial" ways. A truck displaying a sign that reads "Caution Entering Dictatorial Windsor Township" first appeared Saturday parked in a lot at the corner of East Prospect and Cape Horn roads. A dictatorship is a form of government in which absolute power is exercised by a single person, known as a dictator. The truck is owned by J&K Salvage, which offers customers the ability to rent out its trucks as a form of mobile advertising. This particular truck was rented...

    President Trump's scheduled trip to a Harley-Davidson factory in Milwaukee on Thursday has been canceled over the likelihood of protests, CNN reported Tuesday. An administration official told the news network that the plans were scrapped after the motorcycle giant became uncomfortable with the threat of demonstrations. Over the weekend, massive protests broke out at airports across the country after Trump signed an executive order on Friday banning citizens of certain Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. Other large protests were planned for the president's Milwaukee visit, according to CNN. Trump was originally supposed to head to the factory for a...

    Santa Clara Mayor Prepared to Take Over Management of Levi's Stadium Amid Questions About 49ers’ Use of Taxpayer DollarsThe mayor of Santa Clara is warning the San Francisco 49ers that the city may be forced to try to take over management of Levi’s Stadium, if the team fails to provide documents detailing how they spent taxpayer dollars. \ The city doesn't make any money from 49ers games, but it does get a cut when concerts and other events are hosted at the stadium. Based on the findings of an independent audit, however, Mayor Lisa Gillmore is now worried that Santa...

    FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — Back when Donald Trump was giving one hour-plus, free-form, jazz-improvisation speeches — that is, for nearly all of the campaign until the last week — Trump spent an inordinate amount of time telling audiences how great he was. He was the best at this, the best at that, he won this, he won that, his companies were the greatest, people loved him. A typical Trump speech included long stretches of nearly nonstop bragging.

    A new transit hub designed to evoke a bird in flight will open next week at the World Trade Center in New York. Its architect called it a 'monument to life.' 'It is a monument of faith in this city and a monument dedicated to the people,' said Spanish-born architect Santiago Calatrava, 64, of the Oculus, a $4 billion structure that was built around, beneath and above an existing, still-operating subway line. Steve Plate, the chief of major capital projects for the Port Authority, which funded the project, described how the building 'is aligned precisely to allow the sun to...

    The actors playing Minnie Mouse, Olaf from Frozen and the Cookie Monster were arrested by police in New York for hassling tourists for money. The rather surreal scene played out in Times Square, after the costumed characters had posed for a photo with one tourist. As he moved away from the colourful characters, they began to follow him and demanded that he hand over money for the photo.

    The NFL's grounds crew may have forgotten that another team was playing Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. On Jan. 26, the grounds crew mistakenly painted the Broncos logo in the wrong end zone at Levi's Stadium while readying the field for next Sunday's big game. The error didn't go unnoticed on Twitter. Yahoo Sports' Samuel Lam posted a photo displaying both the correct Broncos end zone, and the still-visible Broncos logo in Panthers' territory. James Martin, a CBS photographer, shared a close-up image of the field, showing the faded remains of the Broncos insignia before the grounds...

    New York City is poised to reshape how it treats many so-called quality-of-life offenses, softening its stance toward low-level infractions like public urination and drinking alcohol in public by steering those cases away from the criminal court system. A package of eight bills to be introduced in the City Council on Monday would reduce the impact of the style of policing known as broken windows that has for two decades guided the Police Department to see minor disorder as a precursor to major crime, often alienating residents in the process.

    As we moved into December and what for some time has been called “the holiday season,” the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Tennessee issued a “best practices” directive for the campus to “ensure your holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise.” A Christmas party in disguise? Has it come to this? Aghast state legislators got the directive rescinded, but the Christmas killers will get the last laugh. In fact, they’ve already won. This is the year Christmas died as a public event in the United States. We know this after touring the historic heart...

    Sex crimes on the city’s subways have soared by nearly 20 percent this year, due to a surge in the number of gropers, flashers and voyeurs, NYPD officials said on Monday. “I think everyone has a subway horror story,’’ said straphanger Ashley Ezparda, 27, of Jackson Heights, Queens, near the 74th Street and Broadway station. “[I saw] some homeless guy masturbating on the R train this past summer. I wanted to throw up.”
