    An Amish man cops say was drunk was filmed passed out behind the wheel of his moving buggy - which only came to a halt when it crashed into a police road block.   Bodycam video captured the moment twenty-one-year-old Nathan Miller was found in Orwell by Ashtabula Sheriff deputies around 2:43 a.m. on Saturday.  Law enforcement had responded to reports that Miller's buggy was 'all over the road,' Fox News first reported. 'Hey, hey, wake up!' Sheriff's Deputy Mike Talbert can be heard saying as he first spots the rogue buggy. When Miller trundles on by to the sound of clattering hooves, Talbert speaks into his radio and says: 'There's a Bud Light can in there and he's passed clean out. We got a drunk Amish guy passed out in a buggy.' After a low-speed chase, Talbert tried to block the road, and the buggy crashed into the deputy's car.  'I have it stopped,' Talbert said. 'Nope, disregard, he just rammed it into my car.'  It was only then that a very-confused Miller woke up, and finally regained control of his...
    NEW YORK -- On a beautiful day in March in New York Citys Chinatown, students and their parents lined up around the block for a surprising reason: Books!"Today we are a joy machine. Were here at P.S. 1 giving away 11,000 books," Explained Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) who spoke passionately at the event about the importance of getting books in the hands of kids.The AFT, in collaboration with the United Federation of Teachers (UFT), First Book, and Disney all worked together to make the incredible event a reality to help inspire the next generation of storytellers."One of our goals is to really create the next generation of diverse creators, thinkers, and leaders and really inspire kids to create the world that they want to live in," notes Kieran Viola, the Editorial Director of Disney Hyperion."The Walt Disney Company's partnership with First Book has been going on for 20 years and over that time we've donated millions of books as well as other resources to educators who serve kids in need," she continued."It's nice to...
    A long line of People's Convoy drivers with cars covered in American flags blocked traffic around the U.S. capital Wednesday while blaring their horns.    The People's Convoy - which picked up steam in the U.S. after Canadian truckers' Freedom Convoy protesting vaccine mandates blocked the border earlier this year - completed its 2,600-mile, 11-day journey across the U.S., rolling into Washington just days ago.  On Wednesday, the caravan blocked traffic in endless lines outside the National Mall and painstakingly blared horns, causing locals driving by to scream 'go home' at them and to block public buses.  Many protesters decorated their cars with variations of the American flag, particularly the Betsy Ross and Confederate flags - both of which are frequently used by the far-right and have been embroiled in racist controversy. They also painted '2022 convoy,' 'faith over fear, your choice,' 'freedom,' and 'the people are united' on their windows as they persistently honked, antagonizing locals trying to drive through the city.  The protesters originally planned to make it to DC by the State of the Union March 1, but the...
    Americans have rallied together to show their support for Ukraine as the nation battles an ongoing invasion from Russia, with crowds lining the streets for a table at East Village's Ukrainian restaurant, Veselka, following the Russian invasion. More than 100 New Yorkers joined a line wrapping around the block in a show of solidarity with Ukraine and the almost 70-year-old restaurant. 'I'm surprised by the crowds, but then again, I'm not. It's kind of like we're everybody's favorite living room and I am grateful and thankful for that,' said Jason Birchard, Veselka's owner.  'Many of our staff members are Ukrainian. Everyone is up all night, talking to family members. Some are so distraught, they can't even come to work. They are hanging by a thread, feeling so angry, upset and helpless,' added Birchard, who has been working 16 hour days since the invasion.   New Yorkers wait in a long line at a Ukrainian diner Veselka to show solidarity in the wake of Russia's invasion on February 25, 2022 Pictured: New Yorkers waiting in line for Lower East Side Ukrainian restaurant Veselka...
    Confections in Lufkin, Texas announced on Thursday that it would be selling rainbow cookies for Pride Month. The bakery, located in East Texas, soon faced backlash for its decision. Confections took to Facebook to reveal that many of its customers had sent hateful messages and canceled orders and claimed its "likes" were also plummeting. "Today has been hard. Really hard," a Facebook post from June 3 read. "We lost a significant amount of followers because of a rainbow heart cookie we posted. We received a very hateful message on our business page canceling a large order (5dz) of summer themed cookies for tomorrow morning (that we just finished decorating) because of a rainbow heart cookie we posted." According to Tyler, Texas, CBS affiliate KYTX, by Friday, Confections was inundated with messages of support from across the U.S., including from Mark Cuban's brother, Brian, who reached out to buy cookies to be donated to LGBTQ charities and other nonprofits. "When things slow down a bit, let us know if shipping is possible. I'd like to support you," Cuban said,...
    The line stretched a quarter-mile before the sun was barely up Saturday, snaking around corners like bread lines in the 1930s. But the hungry in Queens are today’s New Yorkers, left jobless by the coronavirus. Until the pandemic struck the city, La Jornada food pantry used to hand out groceries to roughly 1,000 families a week. Now, the number tops 10,000. And volunteers serve lunch every day to 1,000 — many of them kids with growling stomachs. Across the five boroughs, the hungry is in the hundreds of thousands, the Food Bank of New York estimates. “It reminds me of the picture from the Great Depression where a man in a suit and tie is giving another man in a suit and tie an apple. That’s all he had,” La Jornada’s Pedro Rodriguez told The Post. “We give all we have, but that’s not enough.” Seniors, moms and kids, singles — many immigrants from China and Mexico — wait for hours. They turn out in droves wherever, and whenever, the food pantry’s truck shows up. “We feel like we are...
    ENGLEWOOD — Pastor Dwayne Grant gripped a megaphone as he walked up and down the sidewalk, greeting new faces, inviting them to take a bag of groceries. It was his first time throwing a cookout in this particular part of Englewood, though his church, Xperience Church Chicago, is around the corner. Grant is one of several faith leaders and activists working to keep the neighborhood safe as part of the Hit the Hood initiative during a holiday weekend notorious for violence. With shootings already on par to exceed last year’s numbers, a global pandemic still raging across the country and weeks of civil unrest, organizations on the ground are taking a collaborative approach to helping their neighbors. Which is why Grant, known as the “Trap Pastor,” was at the intersection of 66th and Halsted streets Thursday evening, holding court as his wife and a small group of volunteers packed two tables with groceries and masks while a DJ stationed a few feet away played Crucial Conflict and Slick Rick. “We were slow to start. People don’t know me...
