AURORA, Colo. — Authorities on Saturday began the intricate process of disarming booby traps in the apartment of the suspect behind the Colorado movie theater rampage, hoping to find clues inside to the motive for the shootings without causing an explosion that could destroy key evidence.Scores of law enforcement officials, including bomb squad technicians and dozens of federal agents, removed one trip wire and one explosive device inside James Holmes’ apartment Saturday, and “other devices” are in there, Aurora police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson said.“We have been successful in defeating the first threat,” Carlson said. The traps were meant to kill the first people entering the apartment, she said.Holmes, 24, was arrested early Friday outside the suburban Denver theater with high-powered weapons and ammunition and charged with the rampage that killed 12 and injured 58 during the midnight showing of the new Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”Makeshift memorials sprang up for the victims, including a U.S. navy sailor, an aspiring sportscaster and a man celebrating his 27th birthday. In his Saturday radio address, President Barack Obama urged Americans to pray “for the victims of this terrible tragedy, for the people knew them and loved them, for those who are still struggling to recover.”
o What: The Fort Vancouver National Trust has launched a $16 million campaign to raise money to purchase the historic Academy for $10.6 million, with the balance of funding to start work on the project.o To donate or share memories of the site: http://academycampaign.org/community/academy-alumni.The journey back to Vancouver’s roots continues in preservation work for its wealth of historic structures.Despite the weak economy, high demand for the niche-market space has fueled work to restore and maintain the nineteenth-century West Barracks’ buildings and stately Officers Row mansions, said Elson Strahan, president and chief executive officer of the Fort Vancouver National Trust, which manages the city owned properties at the Fort’s historic site. Tenant lease payments help the trust preserve the structures and launch new capital projects, such as replacing nine roofs on Officers Row this year.Next up is the venerable Academy building, across I-5 west of the Fort Vancouver Historic Site. The trust signed an agreement in May to purchase the site for $10.6 million from the Hidden family, owners since 1969. It is now raising funds, preparing for initial renovations and planning work for the site at 400 E. Evergreen Blvd.The Fort Vancouver historic site’s popular public, office and residential space altogether generate a net profit of between $300,000 and $400,000 annually. That money is plowed back into capital improvements by the nonprofit trust, which holds the master lease on more than 100,000 square feet of historically preserved office space and more than a dozen residential units owned by the city at the Fort Vancouver National Historic site.Unlike a private property owner, the nonprofit trust can also use the money to leverage government grants to help maintain the historic aesthetics and upkeep of the structures.
Kathie Durbin, an author and award-winning journalist who had covered the Washington Legislature and the environment for The Columbian, died Friday in a Portland hospice facility.Durbin, who was 68, had been battling pancreatic cancer. She had been at Legacy Hopewell House Hospice since Monday. A Portland resident, Durbin was on The Columbian’s reporting staff from July 1999 until December 2011, when she retired.Her award-winning reporting included big regional stories like the removal of the Condit Dam on the White Salmon River and the wind-power boom in Klickitat County.Durbin also was honored for her coverage of more intimate and personal topics. They include the story of a woman whose son’s genetic disorder was so rare that it didn’t even have a name.The native of Eugene, Ore., graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in journalism. She spent almost 16 years as a reporter at The Oregonian in Portland, from 1978 to 1994.
PORTLAND — There was extra hockey on Friday at the Rose Garden.Thanks to the scoring touch of Edmonton’s Michael St. Croix and the play of goalie Laurent Brossoit, there will be more to this Western Hockey League championship series.St. Croix scored his third goal of the night 7:24 into overtime to give the Oil Kings a 3-2 win over the Portland Winterhawks, extending the best-of-7 series to a sixth game in Edmonton on Sunday.“Obviously, this one stings a bit. We’re not going to lie about that,” Winterhawks defenseman Seth Jones said. “We really wanted this one.”So did an Edmonton team playing for its survival. Despite a Portland goal 15 seconds into the game sending a thrill through the sold-out Rose Garden, despite not getting any power plays and being outshot 51-30, the Oil Kings found a way to win.Thanks to more than a little good luck.The first Edmonton goal deflected in off the skate of a Winterhawk. The second was a freebie after a mistake by Portland goalie Mac Carruth. And on the winner a St. Croix pass bounced off a defenseman’s skate right back to him in front. The Winterhawks’ Joey Baker celebrates his goal 15 seconds in to the first period Friday.
A Vancouver man who fired a shotgun in the air Monday to chase away car prowlers says he was following the advice of Vice President Joe Biden.Jeffrey C. Barton pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Clark County District Court to a misdemeanor charge of illegally discharging a firearm.Outside of court, Barton said, “I did what Joe Biden told me to do. I went outside and fired my shotgun in the air.”The 52-year-old is accused of firing his shotgun Monday to scare away three men who appeared to be breaking into his vehicles. Clark County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 3:30 a.m. to Barton’s home in the 5800 block of N.E. 124th Street for a report of an auto prowl, according to court documents. On the way, the 911 dispatcher heard Barton shoot his gun repeatedly, the court documents say. He allegedly told the dispatcher that he didn’t aim at the men — but that next time, he would.In response to a home defense question in February, Biden said Americans don’t need semi-automatic weapons because a couple of blasts from a shotgun will scare off intruders.
Surveillance footage captured this man, suspected of robbing a convenience store in Clark County. Police are asking the public to help identify a man who robbed a convenience store last week in Clark County’s Sunnyside neighborhood. The man walked into the Minit Mart at 9511 N.E. 76th St. just after 5 a.m. Aug. 9 and allegedly pointed a handgun at the clerk, leaving the store with money from the cash register. After the robbery, police searched the area with a K-9 unit, but they did not locate the robber.He’s described as a white male, between age 17 to 25, about 5 foot 10 inches to 6 foot 1 inches tall and around 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark gray hooded zip-up sweatshirt, black athletic shorts and white-and-black-striped Adidas shoes.Anyone with information about the robbery or the photographed man is asked to call the Clark County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 877-274-6311, email Detective Scott Gilberti at Scott.Gilberti@clark.wa.gov or submit a tip (which can be anonymous) online.
A fire late last month in the North Hearthwood neighborhood was most likely caused by improperly discarding smoking materials, according to Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli.Fire officials were called at 9:44 a.m. Sept. 29 to 1400 N.E. 139th Ave. for a garage fire that had reached into the house. The fire caused an estimated $134,000 damage, Scarpelli said.Scarpelli said that many of the fires that result in multimillion-dollar losses are started this way.“These types of fires can be prevented,” Scarpelli said. “It’s really important to discard smoking material in some kind of noncombustible vessel with either water or sand in it.”
Charges have been refiled against a Vancouver man accused of assisting convicted murderer Matthew Starr in covering up the February 2012 shooting death of their roommate near Vancouver Lake.Zachary J. Mattson, 21, of Vancouver appeared Thursday in Clark County Superior Court on suspicion of first-degree rendering criminal assistance, tampering with physical evidence, making false or misleading statements to a public servant and obstructing a law enforcement officer. Judge David Gregerson held Mattson in lieu of $30,000 bail and appointed Vancouver attorney Shon Bogar to defend him. He is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges June 5.Starr, 21, admitted in November to fatally shooting his roommate, Joshua R. Schenk, 25, after they went target shooting on Lower River Road near Vancouver Lake with Starr’s two friends, Mattson and Zackery Searcy, on Feb. 29, 2012. Starr apparently wanted Schenk dead so that he could take his valuables, according to court records.Starr initially told investigators that one of the shooting party’s rifles accidentally discharged, striking Schenk, and Starr then shot Schenk in the back of the head to put him out of his misery, court records say. In November, however, he pleaded guilty to the first-degree premeditated murder. He was sentenced to 23 years in prison.Mattson helped Starr drag Schenk’s body to a resting place about 4 or 5 feet away from the shooting location and cover it with a plastic tarp, according to court papers. He allegedly also misled investigators about what happened on the day of the murder. Joshua Schenk, who was killed in 2012, holds his niece, Mirra, in 2009.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Europe’s moves to rein in Google — including a court ruling this month ordering the search giant to give people a say in what pops up when someone searches their name — may be seen in Brussels as striking a blow for the little guy. But across the Atlantic, the idea that users should be able to edit Google search results in the name of privacy is being slammed as weird and difficult to enforce at best and a crackdown on free speech at worst.“Americans will find their searches bowdlerized by prissy European sensibilities,” said Stewart Baker, former assistant secretary for policy at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. “We’ll be the big losers. The big winners will be French ministers who want the right to have their last mistress forgotten.” Mountain View, Calif.-based Google says it’s still figuring out how to comply with the European Court of Justice’s May 13 ruling, which says the company must respond to complaints about private information that turns up in searches. Google must then decide whether the public’s right to be able to find the information outweighs an individual’s right to control it — with preference given to the individual.The judgment applies to all search engines operating within the European Union. But in practice that means Google, given that 90 percent of all online searches there use Google’s search engine.
Clark County approved 56 residential building permits in September, the lowest monthly number this year but slightly more than the 54 permits issued in September 2013. Vancouver also reported a slowdown in building permit approvals.For the year through September, the county has issued 701 single family residential permits, compared to 785 in the same period of 2013.This September’s single-family residential construction permits carried a valuation of $19.5 million, barely below last September’s valuation of $20 million. The numbers also include mobile homes.Remodeling activity remained strong going into the fall season, the report shows. Clark County issued 57 permits for home additions, remodels, and garages, the lowest monthly count since May but still 27 percent higher than the 45 permits issued in September 2013.The September remodeling permit numbers are encouraging, the Building Industry Association of Clark County said in a statement. Mike Kinnaman, member of the Remodelers of Clark County and past Building Industry Association president, said his company, Designers Northwest, is “the busiest we’ve been in years.”“Whole home remodels and larger kitchen jobs are definitely on the rise,” Kinnaman said.No apartment permits were issued in September. In September 2013, Clark County recorded four apartment building permits for buildings containing 48 units. Commercial construction activity was up, with 46 permits for the month compared to 23 in September 2013. The valuation of all commercial permit activity was $11.1 million, up from last September’s $8.9 million.

Aristocrat wins battle over intellectual property rights with US$3 million settlement IGT announces offering of €500,000,000 senior secured notes Those titles are now being trialled by a number of Macau operators with Hely telling Inside Asian Gaming at ICE London this week that the early signs have been encouraging.“We’re pleased with what we’re seeing so far,” Hely explained.“We’re still in that evolving part of the process at the moment where we’ve got the products that we think can perform in the marketplace and now we’ve got to prove ourselves in the trials.“We’ve got the good will of the operators – the market sentiment is positive towards us – but like everyone else we’ve got to prove ourselves through a trial of 90 days to get the operator’s confidence to purchase some products and engineer some repeat business as well. We’re coming off a base that is under-represented in our opinion but we think there is capacity there for a lot more from an IGT standpoint. It’s just a matter of earning our way further onto those floors.”Hely noted that IGT’s Australia-New Zealand (ANZ) business had undergone a similar rejuvenation that resulted in a 26% jump in volume in 2018, with the company now turning its attention to Macau and the rest of Asia to follow suit in 2019.“We knew Asia would probably be lagging by 12 to 18 months in terms of how we collected our efforts from a regional point of view,” he said. “2018 was the year of investment and recalibration, 2019 has to be the year we deliver our results for Asia. We think we’ve got the products to do that.“We still regard ourselves as arguably the leader in systems in Asia. We have a good product and a standing reputation as far as that is concerned.“We just need to get the consistency with games now moving forward and I think that will start to come as we come out the other side of those trials.”
Almost two-thirds (61%) of employer respondents see an improvement in employee performance following investment in workplace culture, according to research by EY.Its survey of 100 FTSE 350 board members also found that 92% of respondents believe that investing in workplace culture has a positive impact on an organisation’s financial performance.The research also found:86% of respondents view culture as fundamental or very important to their organisation’s overall performance.More than half (55%) of respondents report that investing in workplace culture has increased operating profits by 10% or more.Just 12% of respondents include a detailed overview of their culture and how it is managed in their public filings or annual reports.Less than a fifth (19%) of respondents believe that the board has primary accountability for workplace culture.51% think that the board should take more responsibility in shaping and measuring culture.68% regularly and actively try to promote and control organisational culture at board level.47% of respondents feel that there is either little or partial board-level consensus on what an organisation’s culture should be.Kevin Hills (pictured), UK head of integrity and compliance at EY, said: “The lessons are clear: culture generates value for organisations willing to invest in it, encompassing both improved performance and reduced risk. You may not always get what you expect, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.“There will always be multiple sub-cultures within any one organisation, each of which influences how employees make decisions. However, it is the board’s responsibility to set the tone from the top and to have oversight, accountability and responsibility for monitoring.“History has shown time and time again the corrosive impact that pockets of ‘bad’ culture can have on a business. But where people are aligned around the organisation’s purpose and values, they are more likely to make the right choices when faced with a difficult decision, even if it may not always be the easy thing to do as targets may be missed.”

FORT LAUDERDALE-HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) – Thousands of travelers are returning to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to recover their belongings after they were forced to abandon them when shots rang out at a baggage claim carousel on Friday, killing innocent travelers and injuring many others.Roughly 12,000 passengers were evacuated from FLL when shots broke out, just before 1 p.m., and nearly all of these people left behind their belongings filled with their personal and financial items.Unfortunately, returning the belongings of 12,000 people is not an easy task. “It is an extensive process to go through those many items,” said Director of Airport Operations Michael Nonnemacher.Sunday night, dozens of suitcases and bags were loaded up into trucks and transported to a hangar inside the airport where a private company hired by FLL officials is conducting a massive sorting operation. On Monday, Delta employees sorted through unclaimed checked bags. Officials said many of these bags have been returned to their owners, but it has been more difficult to sort through personal items like backpacks and even stuffed animals, many of which do not have any form of identification.A passenger tweeted out a photo of Rufus, their daughter’s teddy bear, in the hopes she is able to be reunited with the plush animal. Has anyone seen #Rufus? Help @klariviere3 find her daughter’s stuffed animal that was lost in the #FLLshooting. https://t.co/oT0ykVKqiU— Broward Sheriff (@browardsheriff) January 9, 2017Urriaga and her mother, Christina Garcia, returned to FLL on Monday in order to track down bags they abandoned at security after shots rang out, and they ran for safety. However, they have not had any luck finding their luggage.“They haven’t solved anything,” said her mother. “We need our documents. We have our car in a parking lot in Atlanta. We have the keys to our house in our purses. We have all of our belongings there, and we can’t do anything.”According to airport officials, the process to reunite these passengers with their belongings may take as long as a week. Although a private company was brought in to catalog each bag, to get these items to some 12,000 passengers will take several days. “This wave of energy, you could just feel it coming toward you, the panic, the screaming,” said Anne.“This woman, she grabbed me by the arm, and I didn’t know what to do, and I got lost,” said young passenger Melvis Urriaga.It was well after the shooting but fear of the unknown outside of Terminal 2 sent people on a spontaneous scramble with little explanation. “We ran for our lives. It felt that way,” said Anne.The shooting caused 12,000 passengers to evacuate the airport and duck for cover, leaving behind a total of 23,000 suitcases, bags and personal items scattered and piled throughout the airport. “I didn’t even consider taking anything with us,” said Anne. “It was just one of these situations where no one would.”A total of 54 people were taken to area hospitals, but officials said only six of them sustained gunshot wounds.Santiago has since been charged with an act of violence at an international airport resulting in death, which carries a maximum punishment of execution, as well as weapons charges.Now, airlines are facing a logistical nightmare, as hundreds of passengers still do not have their belongings. However, they said they never received a single phone call from the airport or airline about their missing luggage. “It’s pretty outrageous,” said Nerelle Fountaine. “I mean, we’ve been planning this trip for a long time. We have three children, and we’re going on a cruise tomorrow, so we didn’t even know if we were going to make the cruise since we wouldn’t have had clothes to go on the cruise.”The private company in charge of sorting the unclaimed luggage is creating a website for those with missing belongings so that they may attempt to identify and recover the items.Officials said this situation, involving thousands of items, is nothing like they’ve seen before. “Something of this magnitude is something that I don’t think anyone can ever really plan for,” said Greg Meyer with the Broward County Aviation Department. “The lessons learned that we get from this experience, we will share with other airports around the country, and maybe around the world, because we’re not aware of any other incident quite like this.”So far, the Hoffmans are pleased with the process. They have been able to retrieve their checked bags, and they happen to have photos of their missing carry-on items. “I was able to give them pictures of the bags. That might really help them find them, so we’ll see if that happens,” said Steve.The website will be up and running in the next couple of days.

Baffled employees quickly came out and apologized, but by that time, the couple’s stomachs were already soured by the sight.“[I felt] disgust. It’s a whole frog in a water drink, and you’re at a restaurant,” said Sheats. “You have hairs in your food sometimes, or maybe a little piece of plastic from packaging, but this is an amphibian. You definitely lose your appetite immediately.”The couple has since filed a complaint with the Waffle House corporate office and the Florida Department of Health.Health officials inspected the restaurant days later and found at least 11 violations.Though frogs are considered delicacies in some places around the world, Sheats never thought one would be served up so close to home. “You don’t expect a frog, so it was quite a surprise,” she said.A Waffle House spokesperson said the incident is being investigated.“My husband and I have always enjoyed Waffle House, but being that that happened, it kind of puts a bad taste in your mouth,” said Sheats. TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (WSVN) – A couple dining at a North Florida restaurant known for its waffles experienced a sudden loss of appetite when they realized there was a dead frog in one of their water glasses.Claire Sheats and her husband went out to eat at a Waffle House in Tallahassee, Nov. 5.Sheats said they were drinking some ice-cold water as they waited for their food — when they noticed something unsettling in one of their glasses.“In my husband’s drink, there’s a whole frog just floating around in the water,” she said.The couple nearly leapt from their seats after they dumped the water out onto the table to find the amphibian floating inside.“Sure enough, there’s the frog,” said Sheats.Unfortunately, her husband had already taken a few sips. The restaurant has until the end of this week to correct the violations.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.
