    ROSS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) – A Ross Township road is routinely flooding and Sunday afternoon a man had to be rescued after his car got caught in the water. “This thing floods every time it rains it seems like,” Bill Kerr is talking about Union Avenue near the Ross Township-Bellevue line. READ MORE: Work Search Requirements For Unemployment Benefits Resume This Week Kerr has lived near Spruce Run for about five years, he said flooding is nothing new. “The problem is it’s saturated right now, so it ain’t going nowhere,” Kerr told KDKA from his front yard. He said it took about 15-20 minutes for Union Avenue to become a lake. Around 4:20 Sunday afternoon, a car got stuck in the water leaving the driver stranded. “I think he was a little bit fortunate the rain had stopped or slowed down significantly at that point so the volume of water just wasn’t there to push it,” Ross West View EMS and Rescue Supervisor Steve Kline said. Rescue crews got the man to safety and said he was not hurt. ...
    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) said on Wednesday that his office was looking into “every avenue” block the city of Austin’s mask mandate. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) lifted the state's mask mandate on Wednesday, making it the latest out of over a dozen states to ease the coronavirus prevention method.  However, the Austin City Council passed an ordinance from the city’s health council on Tuesday requiring face masks to be work inside Travis County businesses. Individuals could be charged for refusing to leave a business for not wearing a mask. The ordinance stays in effect until July. “The state-wide mask mandate is lifted today. Yet once again, @MayorAdler [Austin Mayor Steve Adler (D)] and @AndyBrownATX [Travis County Judge Andy Brown] are trying to figure out how they can buck state law and resist @GovAbbott," Paxton’s office said on Twitter. “We’re looking at every avenue available to stop them. More to come,” his office tweeted. The state-wide mask mandate is lifted today. Yet once again, @MayorAdler and @AndyBrownATX are trying to figure out how they can...
    TipRanks 2 Stocks That Are Flirting With a Bottom; Analysts Say ‘Buy’ Investing is all about profits, and part of generating profits is knowing when to start the game.

    CHICAGO — With results from the presidential election hanging in the balance, hundreds of Chicagoans marched Wednesday night to demand that votes are counted completely and President Donald Trump honor the results should he lose. Around 1,000 people gathered in Downtown Chicago as part of a pre-planned, post-election protest organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression. About two dozen neighbors gathered in the Northwest Side for their own march. Activists from several local groups joined the Downtown demonstration to reinforce their longstanding demands for community oversight of the Chicago Police Department, anti-racist city policies, and economic and rent relief for unemployed people — regardless of who became the next president. But as the president and Republican operatives launched widespread legal battles Wednesday to try to affect vote-counting in battleground states — even going so far as to falsely claim victory even when several key states had not finalized results — several organizers shifted the focus of the demonstration to combatting voter suppression and election integrity. “Let me be clear: The will of the people will be heard...
    By KIM FUNDINGSLAND, Minot Daily News MINOT, N.D. (AP) — What the heck? Why do such a thing? Then again, why not? Matthew Geffert of Minot, almost always with his dog “Teller,” a Hungarian vizsla tethered to him, has run every street, avenue, alley and trail in Minot. Really. Geffert used a download of a city map to make certain he didn’t miss a single street. He carefully planned his route before every run and loaded the information onto his watch. “I’d follow the navigation that way, just to be sure I didn’t miss anything,” said Geffert. “Every street, start to finish, even some on the outskirts just to be sure. I even ran the old FEMA camp from the flood, on those dirt roads, because there were street signs there.” The only routes Geffert didn’t run was the highways and bypasses in and around the city. “That’s where I drew the line for safety reasons,” explained Geffert. Geffert, who came to Minot Air Force Base last January, is a native of Indiana. He was previously stationed in Utah, so...

    The Budlong Hot Chicken first surfaced in Denver in 2018 as a food truck from Chicago restaurateur Jared Leonard, who launched the brand there 2016. After about a year at Zeppelin Station beginning in early 2019, the Budlong flew the coop — only to land at 81 South Pennsylvania street this week. Leonard's Nashville-style hot chicken eatery takes over the space previously occupied by American Grind, serving sandwiches in several heat levels along with fries, biscuits, collard greens and other sides from 11 a.m to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Leonard and his wife, Amanda, are also working on opening Campfire, a wood-fired restaurant in Evergreen. Two coffee shops have reopened after recent time off. Mint & Serif closed in July 2019 at its original location at 11500 West Colfax Avenue to expand into a larger space three miles east. The move took longer than anticipated because of the pandemic, but the cafe is back open with beer, wine and coffee drinks, along with a menu of breakfast burritos and sandwiches, pastries and other coffeehouse fare. And in the...

    The July story in the restaurant industry was the continuing coronavirus pandemic and its effects on the Colorado economy. A spike in cases created more restrictions for bars and restaurants; the most contentious was the new rule changing last call to 10 p.m. for thirty days from July 21. The results of the past five months of drastically reduced business have been devastating, and establishments of all sizes, styles and popularity continue to shutter. The latest was Fooducopia, the brave little eatery in the heart of residential Washington Park West opened by Tim Lymberopoulos in 2012. "To all of you I have met, thank you for dining at Fooducopia. You were my favorite part of owning a restaurant" the owner said on social media. Also announcing its closing this week was Gozo, opened by Frank Jolley in 2014 and purchased by Curt Sims and Pam Savage Sims in 2017. "We were able to be one of the best during a time that restaurants were at their apex in this city," general manager Eric Norberg wrote on Gozo's Facebook page. Other...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — The show will go on. The coronavirus pandemic caused countless concert cancellations, and while many have secured refunds for their tickets, others are still out the cash. CBS 2’s Lauren Victory on Thursday looked into one ticket vendor that has ignored unhappy customers – and the Better Business Bureau – for months. RELATED: On The Secondary Market, It’s Buyer Beware When Tickets Are Sold Twice | Rep. Jan Schakowsky Calls For Law To Protect Consumers From Abuses By Ticket Brokers When you call online ticket vendor Verified Seats, you might get a message saying, “Please callback Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.” But no matter what time you call, you’ll get a voicemail prompt and a promise that the customer service team will get back to you rather than an answer – and when Victory tried, she couldn’t even leave a voicemail. “They never answer their phone, and they never return any emails,” said Jeff Kerensky. We also tried emailing Verified Seats through their online submission form. That was another dead end – their website...
