    She comes from a family of givers. LaTasha Ward said she often laughs when she thinks about how her father would give their bikes away if someone in the community needed them. More Local News More Maryland News More Prince George’s County News She said as a child, she didn’t quite understand what was going on. She would ask, “Dad, where are our bikes?” He’d say: “Don’t worry about that.” The next day, Ward said they would have new bikes. She said she later discovered that he had given their old bikes to children in need.

    On a brisk morning in southeast Washington, D.C.’s Congress Heights neighborhood, a handful of residents lined up, bundled and masked, to be let into St. Elizabeth’s East Entertainment and Sports Arena. The space was recently converted into a high-capacity vaccination clinic, and while there was a subdued sense of anticipation in the air, the scene wasn’t exactly a tense one. It felt more like the line for advance tickets to a movie than it did a group of people waiting to receive a potentially life-saving vaccine. Bontivia Ben lives 20 minutes away from the St. Elizabeth vaccination site and said she heard about the opportunity to get vaccinated in Congress Heights through her employer. She was not impressed by the rollout in the nation’s capital. “It’s been slow coming out,” Ben told The Daily Beast after getting the vaccine. National statistics agree with Ben’s assessment. Only 11 percent of people in D.C. are fully vaccinated, putting the District at the bottom of the rankings, ahead of only Utah, Micronesia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, according to the New...
    FOLSOM (CBS13) – It’s a whirlwind of emotion for Tom Ward and Sheri George coming back to see their home on Randall Drive that went up in flames on Thanksgiving. The couple had no clue flames were roaring just as they started cutting their turkey – and then something happened. “We heard a knock on the front door and Sheri went to the front door and a gentleman was passing by,” Ward said. “I just kind of barged in the house and said, ‘Hey, I think your house is on fire. You might want to get out,’ ” Dominick Holmes, a good Samaritan,” said. The couple walked outside of their home and then saw the flames on their roof. “It was all a blur. I can remember I was just running through the home telling everyone to get out, call 9-1-1,” George said. After the fire was put out and the family looked for anything salvageable, George and Ward wanted to thank Holmes, who they had never met before that fateful night. But, he was gone. So, through the power...
    Tight end George Kittle’s return from a foot fracture indeed will happen Saturday, and while he won’t have with his usual heavy workload, he has his reasons to rejoin a 49ers team already ousted from playoff contention. “That’s why I’m coming back, because I have a very sour taste in my mouth. I hate losing football games and hate when I don’t perform at at a high level,” Kittle said via video conference Friday from the 49ers’ temporary home this month in Glendale Arizona. “Ending on an injury is not very fun. So the fact I get two opportunities, especially against division opponents and to let them know I’m still here and will be for multiple years to come, I’m really excited about the chance to play the next two weeks.” In Kittle’s return from a six-game layoff, the 49ers (5-9) will look to impact the playoff prospects of the Arizona Cardinals (8-6) on Saturday and the NFC West-leading Seattle Seahawks (10-4), with both games at Arizona’s State Farm Stadium. “He’s in great shape and is...
    By MEGAN BURKS, Minnesota Public Radio News MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — On Dec. 4, Minneapolis police officers chased an alleged, armed carjacking suspect into the south Minneapolis intersection that residents and activists have been holding as an autonomous zone called George Floyd’s Square. Several people gathered around the officers, yelling for them to be less rough with the suspect. The officers called for backup and 12 squad cars arrived, according to people who were there. Officers arrested one of the bystanders for obstructing justice. The incident illustrates a tension that’s been simmering in the neighborhood and citywide as elected officials and community members try to reform public safety amid a sharp increase in violent crime. The people holding the intersection say the show of force that night was excessive and an example of why police need to be reined in, or replaced altogether. It was traumatizing, they say, for a community that has watched police brutalize people of color — up close with the killing of George Floyd, but also in countless other cases locally and nationwide, year after year. But...

    By Brad Brooks HOUSTON (Reuters) - Dexter Faircloth stalked the streets of Houston's Third Ward, the historic Black neighborhood where he was born and raised, shouting greetings and asking an urgent question. "Y'all vote?! Did you?" Faircloth, 35, hollered repeatedly at people, who smiled when they recognized him as he canvassed the area last weekend. Faircloth, a corporate trainer, says he has always been an advocate for his community. But that role became more urgent when his friend and Third Ward native, African-American George Floyd, died in May after a white Minneapolis police knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes. The summer's simmering anger and demands for justice that Floyd's death ignited have transformed into huge voter turnout for Black Americans in some parts of the country. That is especially true of the Third Ward, where hopes for change have energized many in the final days of the race between President Donald Trump, a Republican, and Democratic rival Joe Biden. Early voting at the Third Ward's three polling stations is up more than 650% compared to 2016 figures, according...
    UPPER MARLBORO, MD – A Prince George’s County grand jury indicted two county police officers in separate criminal cases on Thursday. The first case involves county police officer, Bryant Strong, on charges of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. On October 12, 2019, Officer Strong pulled over a man, Demonte Wark-Blake, during a traffic stop. During the encounter, Ward-Blake was removed from the vehicle and detained. At some point after conducting a search on Ward-Blake’s body, Strong slammed him down on the ground while in handcuffs, according to the Office of the State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County. In a separate case, the grand jury indicted Prince George’s Police Corporal Luis Aponte on charges of scheme and theft under $10,000 and two counts of misconduct. The indictment said from June 11 to July 6, 2019, Aponte represented himself as a Prince George’s County police officer- knowing his police powers were suspended by the department- while claiming to work a secondary job at Prince George’s Hospital.
    The taxpayers of Minneapolis will foot a $152,000 bill for security services given to three members of the City Council who received death threats following their calls to defund the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death. According to an investigative report by the local Fox 9 news outlet, the three council members, Andrea Jenkins (Ward 8), Phillipe Cunningham (Ward 4), and Alondra Cano (Ward 9), were granted a security detail shortly after Memorial Day, which cost the city about $4,500 a day and ended on June 29. Two security firms Aegis and BelCom were reportedly hired because police officials were overwhelmed with security needs following George Floyd’s death in police custody and the demonstrations that ensued for weeks after. MINNEAPOLIS COUNCIL MEMBERS CALLING TO DEFUND POLICE SPEND $63G ON PRIVATE SECURITY DETAILS AFTER RECEIVING DEATH THREATS “This security service was intended to be temporary and bridge to other security measures implemented by council members themselves,” a City spokesperson told Fox News. The City Council does not need to approve any expenses unless they exceed $175,000. The costs were...

    Incumbent Brandon Todd appears to have lost the Democratic primary for the Ward 4 seat on D.C. Council, with Janeese Lewis George holding more than 54% of the vote, according to the unofficial results of Tuesday’s elections. Jack Evans fell flat in his bid to regain the Ward 2 seat he resigned in January over an ethics scandal, finishing near the rear in an eight-person Democratic field, according to unofficial results. The unofficial results do not include special ballots and some absentee ballots. George holds a 1,500-vote edge over Todd (43.6%), who was D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s handpicked successor in Ward 4 and had received the backing of Council Chairman Phil Mendelson. George’s campaign had yet to declare victory as of early Wednesday morning. Brooke Pinto (27.7%) held a slight edge — a little more than 100 votes — over Patrick Kennedy (26.4%) in Ward 2, according to the unofficial results, making the contest a tossup. Jordan Grossman is in third place with 20.13%… Read the full story from the Washington Business Journal.
