    The dean of students and a counselor at Oxford High School in Michigan who were named in a lawsuit against the school district were put on administrative leave after the tragic shooting that left four students dead in November. The employees - Dean of Students Nicholas Ejak and Counselor Shawn Hopkins - have both since left the school but will continue to work in the Oxford School District.  An attorney leading the lawsuit, Ven Johnson, called these actions an attempt to cover up its responsibility in not stopping the shooting.   'Oxford Community Schools has yet again covered up its role in the Oxford High School mass shooting tragedy. Today, we have found out for the first time, that two of its high school employees, Nicholas Ejak and Shawn Hopkins, both of whom are named in our civil lawsuit, were immediately placed on paid 'administrative leave' for more than one month following the shooting,' Johnson said in a statement. The suspensions are 'yet another example of the overwhelming evidence which proves the school district has no interest whatsoever in determining the...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Mets reliever Sean Reid-Foley was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a partially torn elbow ligament that will sideline him indefinitely. Reid-Foley exited his outing Saturday night against the Philadelphia Phillies while facing J.T. Realmuto in the eighth inning. The right-hander fired high on a 2-0 count and immediately motioned for a trainer. New York said an MRI on Sunday morning showed a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament and Reid-Foley would meet with team doctors and medical staff to discuss treatment options. Tommy John surgery could be a possibility. “It’s unfortunate. But we’re lucky in today’s world it’s something that can be fixed,” manager Buck Showalter said. Working as a middle reliever and long man with the ability to pitch multiple innings, Reid-Foley has a 5.40 ERA with no record in seven appearances this season. He has struck out eight and walked seven in 10 innings. Right-hander Yoan López was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to fill the bullpen spot. Reid-Foley was one of three young pitchers acquired by the Mets from Toronto in a...
    TORONTO (AP) — Pascal Siakam matched his season high with 35 points, Chris Boucher scored 17 and the Toronto Raptors tightened the Eastern Conference playoff race by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-104 on Thursday night. OG Anunoby returned from injury to score 14 points, Scottie Barnes had 11 and Fred VanVleet and Precious Achiuwa each added 10 as Toronto (41-32) snapped a three-game home losing streak and tied Cleveland for the sixth-best record with nine games to go in the regular season. Cleveland had won all three previous meetings with the Raptors this season, meaning the Cavs hold the tiebreaker over Toronto and retain possession of the No. 6 seed in the East. That is the last guaranteed postseason spot, with teams finishing in the Nos. 7-10 spots headed for the play-in tournament. Siakam’s six made 3-pointers matched his career high. He shot 6 for 7 from long range. Anunoby started for the Raptors, returning to the lineup after missing 15 games because of a fractured right ring finger. He shot 4 for 11 in 26 minutes, finishing 4 for...
    More people are in hospital battling COVID-19 than at any other time during the pandemic, as the Omicron surge sees no sign of abating. On Tuesday, there were 62,308,132 confirmed cases of the virus in the U.S. and 842,141 deaths.

    Americans who are already facing higher gas prices at the pump could feel even more pain in the coming months, a top Bank of America analyst predicts. In a note this week, Bank of America's head of global commodities Francisco Blanch said he expects the Brent crude benchmark to hit $120 per barrel by July 2022, according to Bloomberg.  That would be a 43 percent increase from current prices, which at around $84 per barrel are at their highest level since 2014.

                      by Bethany Blankley  Oil prices hit a 7-year high this week as American oil and gas companies continue to fight the Biden administration over policies restricting production. As the economy began to reopen this year and the demand for fuel increased, President Joe Biden, through executive order, halted and restricted oil and gas leases on federal lands, stopped construction of the Keystone Pipeline, and redirected U.S. policy to import more oil from Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and Russia (OPEC+) instead of bolstering American oil and gas exploration and production. The U.S. led the world in oil and gas production for seven consecutive years prior to this year. It produced more oil and petroleum liquids than any other country, with Texas leading the way, according to U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) data. Texas remains the top crude oil and natural gas producing state in the U.S. In 2020, Texas accounted for 43% of the nation’s crude oil production and 26% of its marketed natural gas production, EIA reports. In...
    Gas prices have spiked to a seven-year high after Colonial Pipeline was forced to shut off the nation's biggest fuel pipeline in the wake of a cyberattack as some fuel distributors warned of 'catastrophic' shortages across the South and Northeast.  The national average for retail gasoline prices was at $2.985 as of Tuesday, according to the American Automobile Association. The last time the average gas prices were above $2.99 was back in November 2014. Colonial Pipeline has said it is trying to 'substantially' restore operations by the end of the week but reports of gas shortages are already emerging with motorists lining up from Florida to Virginia. The 5,500 pipeline, which runs from Texas to New Jersey and transports 45 percent of the East Coast's fuel supply, shut down five days ago following the ransomware hack.  The FBI has confirmed that DarkSide, a Russian hacking outfit made up of ransomware veterans, was responsible for the attack. The Russian embassy in the US has denied any involvement.  Colonial, which is based in Atlanta, Georgia, has not yet said whether it has already paid or is negotiating a ransom with...
    Katy Perry Shares How Daughter Daisy Changed Her Perspective on Life 23 Secret Ways To Save Money on Amazon Lonzo Ball ties career high with seven 3-pointers after his name pops up in trade rumors © Provided by CBS Sports Lonzo Ball is having arguably the worst season of his still young career. Entering Friday's game vs. Milwaukee, he was shooting 30 percent from three, a career low, and his assists and rebounds are down significantly from last season. Now he's hearing his name in trade rumors as the Pelicans, who chose not to sign Ball to an extension this past offseason, are reportedly listening to offers for the fourth-year combo guard.  Who knows if the chatter lit a fire in him or he just had a hot night, but either way, Ball tied a career high with seven 3-pointers in New Orleans' 131-126 victory over the Bucks. Ball finished 7 of 13 from deep en route to 27 points, which is just two off the career-high 29 he notched in just his second game as a pro with...
    CRYSTAL LAKE (WLS) -- Crystal Lake Central High School is one of four high schools in Community High School District 155 that began a hybrid model Wednesday morning after several weeks of remote learning."It's easier to do in school in my opinion because you can understand the teachers easier," said Tyler Cruz, high school junior."I liked learning at home, but I definitely think in school, there will be a lot less procrastination," said Avery Carlson, high school freshman.The students are divided up by alphabets and the number of students attending in person has been reduced."It's important to remember our high schools are built for 1800 to 2000 students. We are averaging right now about 500, so just the sheer volume is diminished substantially," Supt. Steve Olson said.Reducing the volume of students makes many parents feel comfortable with sending their kids back to school."I have two freshmen, and we are excited for them to get to experience high school a bit, just a couple days a week, and I feel like the safety protocols are in place for it to be...

    A judge has refused to order Avengers star Jeremy Renner to take drug tests called for by his ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco, who has accused him of getting drunk and high while their seven-year-old daughter Ava was with him. The Oscar-nominated actor 'has a long history of alcohol and drug abuse which has persisted since before the marriage, through divorce and post-judgment,' blasted Pacheco in legal documents urging Los Angeles Superior Court to force him to be drug tested. But after a closed-door hearing Monday in downtown LA, Judge Anne Richardson denied the Canadian-born actress' request, ruling in a written order, 'Court finds there are insufficient facts to order the drug test.' It didn't all go 49-year-old Renner's way at the child custody hearing. The judge also ordered him to pay a ' reasonable fee' of $40,000 toward's Pacheco's attorney expenses 'within seven days.'
