    TULSA, Okla. – Rick Frazier drove more than 750 miles from Ohio to Tulsa to be one of the first campers in line for President Donald Trump's first rally in months, undeterred by a days-long wait in searing heat, the growing risk of coronavirus or a lukewarm reception from local officials. The 64-year-old is among scores of supporters who have brought their vans, tents, campers and Trump flags to the parking lots and sidewalks outside the 19,000-seat BOK Center, and who say what matters most is being there to see the president take the stage on Saturday — and to be sure he knows they have his back. “The big thing is to go in and support the president,” said Frazier, who arrived Tuesday for what will be his 21st Trump rally. Frazier said he feels safe, noting he and other campers are using hand sanitizer to prevent spread of COVID-19. Trump rallies are known for being big events with a sometimes festival-like atmosphere, and have always drawn die-hard fans who sleep outside for days to secure...
    Kathy Lueders, NASA's newly appointed head of human spaceflight operations, declined to give a yes-or-no answer Thursday when asked whether she believes NASA can put astronauts back on the moon by the end of 2024 as called for by the Trump administration. "I don't have a crystal ball," she told NASA Watch during a teleconference. "I wish I knew that answer, it would make my job a lot easier. We're going to try. We're going to try, right? Sometimes it's the trying that gets us closer to the goal than the not trying." While most space observers view the 2024 goal as unrealistic — one former NASA manager recently called it a "pipe dream" — Lueders said, "if you start and you say I can't get there, well, you're not going to get there."

    CHICAGO — As people flock to bars and restaurants to enjoy a delayed patio season, workers say they have been “completely overlooked” in reopening plans. The city entered Phase 3 of reopening from coronavirus on June 3, allowing restaurants to open for patio service with strict safety precautions. Bars and breweries can join them in reopening as of Wednesday. But obedience to the these guidelines — requiring guests wear face masks when not eating and social distance — has been mixed, which has servers like Alicia Rottman concerned about returning to work. “Just because the state says it’s OK to open up doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s safe to,” said Rottman, who’s worked in the industry for 15 years. “I think the consensus is we’re going to see a big pop in cases maybe a month into reopening and that will largely fall on us.” Rottman said she fell into a panic after her employer, who she declined to name for fear of retribution, texted her last week asking if she’d considered coming back to work. She asked what steps would...

    LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) — Investigators found no weapon inside a vehicle driven by a Missouri woman who was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy over the weekend, authorities said Tuesday. Hannah Fizer, 25, died Saturday night after being shot by a Pettis County deputy following a traffic stop. The Missouri State Highway Patrol, which is investigating the shooting, initially said Fizer was shot after she said she had a gun and threatened to shoot the deputy. Investigators who searched her car did not find a weapon, patrol spokesman Bill Lowe said Tuesday. He said no new information was available to explain why the situation escalated into a shooting. No one else was injured during the confrontation. Fizer was stopped after she ran a red light as she drove to work Saturday night, the patrol said.

Her father, John Fizer, said Monday that his daughter never carried a gun and she was...
    New York (CNN Business)The final photos journalist Linda Tirado took around midnight on May 30, while covering the protests in Minneapolis, show what appears to be a police officer aiming a foam bullet gun right at her. Shortly after, Tirado was hit in the face with a foam bullet, which broke the goggles she was wearing and left her permanently blind in one eye. "There were protesters behind me, police in front of me, but you can see from the clarity of the photo that there wasn't gas around us," Tirado, a freelance journalist and author, told CNN's Brian Stelter on "Reliable Sources" Sunday. "There's no way that they could have mistaken me — with a professional camera — for anything but working press," she said.Now Tirado is suing the City of Minneapolis, its police chief and others over her injury.

Like in Tirado's case, many such attacks...

    DIXON, Ill. (AP) - The end-of-the-year field trip concluded in Kimberly Bork’s class during the last week of May, but it wasn’t a typical one. Bork’s fourth-grade students at Madison School finished the year exploring the national parks, and then documented their trip and experiences in a report. No real travel was necessary, but planning was a requirement: The itinerary, the fuel mileage, the expenses – it’s a tough project for 10-year-olds to grasp, but Bork’s students come through every year and expand their knowledge of the real world.
