    FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in North Carolina say a pack of dogs is still on the loose after killing 11 goats in Cumberland County near Fayetteville. The Raleigh News & Observer reported Friday that the three feral dogs are reported to be German Shepherd mixes with white fur. Elaine Smith, Cumberland County's animal services director, said in a statement that the dogs "have not been aggressive toward people, and we have not been able to get within 50 feet of them.” Cumberland County Animal Services said it has received reports that an unidentified owner abandoned several dogs. “The areas the dogs have been sighted in are heavily populated, with pockets of thickly overgrown woods, which has made capturing them very difficult,” Smith said. “The dogs have also traveled more than 2 ½ miles from their original sighting.” Officials are asking for the public’s help with tracking down the dogs. They say they're trying to “humanely capture the dogs with the use of tranquilizer darts, special traps and snares.” Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Joe Biden has won Georgia and its 16 electoral votes, an extraordinary victory for Democrats who pushed to expand their electoral map through the Sun Belt. The win by Biden pads his Electoral College margin of victory over President Donald Trump. Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election on Nov. 7 after flipping Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin to the Democrats’ column. Biden now has 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232. Trump won Georgia by 5 percentage points in 2016 over Democrat Hillary Clinton. In 2020, Democrats had focused heavily on the state, seeing it in play two years after Democrat Stacey Abrams narrowly lost the governor’s race. Both of Georgia’s Senate seats were on the ballot this year, further boosting the state’s political profile as well as spending by outside groups seeking to influence voters. Those two races are headed to a January runoff. Georgia hadn’t voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1992. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    By The Associated Press The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world: ___ German soccer club Hoffenheim says it tried to move its match against Stuttgart from Saturday to Sunday because of coronavirus cases but its request was refused. Seven Hoffenheim players have tested positive for the virus in the last two weeks. The club hoped that the delay would allow more players to end their quarantine periods or regain fitness in training. Hoffenheim sports director Alexander Rosen says the league rejected the application and “we accept the decision but we regret it.” Hoffenheim is in 13th place in the Bundesliga and Stuttgart is in eighth. ___ More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright 2020 The Associated Press.

    MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont is expanding testing across the state as part of a broader move to help combat the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. On Tuesday, Gov. Phil Scott said the state will be opening five new testing sites by the end of the week n Burlington, Middlebury, Waterbury, Rutland and Brattleboro. Officials hope to have a total of 14 new testing sites up and running by the end of the month. The goal is to locate testing sites within a 30-minute drive of all Vermonters, said Human Services Secretary Mike Smith. The hours of the testing locations will be expanded to make them more convenient for more Vermonters and the state also hopes to increase the capacity to 30,000 tests a week, he said. The increased testing comes as Vermont is trying to tamp down a surge in cases of the virus that causes COVID-19. On Tuesday, statistics showed that the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Vermont had risen over the previous two weeks from 19.43 new cases per day on Nov....
    By The Associated Press The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world: ___ The Swiss soccer federation says it is waiting for UEFA to decide if its Nations League match will be played after several COVID-19 infections were found in the visiting Ukraine squad. Ukraine has had six players test positive in Switzerland. But the Ukrainian federation says two of the six should have UEFA clearance to play because Sergei Kryvtsov and Junior Moraes have antibodies after previously testing positive. Ukraine could be forced to forfeit the game. The match will decide which of the two teams is relegated to the second tier. The group also includes Germany and Spain. ___ More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    By The Associated Press Who will be the first to get COVID-19 vaccines? No decision has been made, but the consensus among many experts in the U.S. and globally is that health care workers should be first, said Sema Sgaier of the Surgo Foundation, a nonprofit group working on vaccine allocation issues. An expert panel advising the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also considering giving high priority to workers in essential industries, people with certain medical conditions and people age 65 and older. Once a vaccine gets a green light from the Food and Drug Administration, the panel will look at clinical trial data on side effects and how people of various ages, ethnicities and health statuses responded. That will determine the panel's recommendations to the CDC on how to prioritize shots. State officials are expected to follow the CDC's guidance as they distribute the first vaccines. Vaccine supplies will be limited at first. There won’t be enough to protect everyone, yet getting the shots to the right people could change the course of the pandemic. Many...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Tesla will be added to the S&P 500 index on Dec. 21. Based on its market value Monday, the electric car maker would be one of the top 10 companies in the benchmark index upon entry. S&P Dow Jones Indices made the announcement after the closing bell. Tesla shares jumped nearly 11% in after-hours trading. Tesla became eligible to join the S&P 500 after posting its fourth consecutive profit in the second quarter of this year. However, it was not selected for inclusion in the index in September. Tesla shares have soared 387.8% this year as the company is finally making money on a consistent basis and continues to hit milestones for deliveries of its vehicles.

    By CALVIN WOODWARD, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — In the face of conclusive evidence that he lost, President Donald Trump is claiming “I won.” His tweet Monday sought to perpetuate the mathematically impossible and thoroughly debunked myth that he pulled out a victory from the election that definitively chose Democrat Joe Biden as the next president. Trump's refusal to acknowledge the outcome nearly two weeks after Election Day is denying Biden access to the money, information sharing and machinery of presidential transitions as the coronavirus pandemic rages in the U.S. and as the incoming president's team is left in the dark about any national security threats that Trump's departing team might know about. TRUMP: “I won the Election!” — tweet. THE FACTS: No, Biden won the election. Biden achieved victory in key states such as Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Arizona, topping the 270 electoral vote threshold to clinch the presidency, with room to spare. If Biden's advantage holds in Georgia after a recount, he would end up with 306 electoral votes, a total that Trump called a “landslide” when states...
    ARNOLD, Mo. (AP) — Nearly a year after Walter the dog went missing in suburban St. Louis, apparently wandering the woods behind an industrial park, the golden retriever is back with his owner. KSDK-TV reports that Kate Olson of New Hampshire was in Arnold, Missouri, visiting relatives last Thanksgiving when Walter slipped out of his collar and took off. Olson stayed in Missouri for weeks searching for the dog and printing and distributing fliers. She eventually returned to New England but got calls about sightings. She returned in January to search again. No luck, so she created a “Where's Walter?” Facebook page and enlisted animal rescue groups in the search. Finally, on Friday, Olson got the call she had been waiting for. A group based in Belleville, Illinois, called Lost Paws Trapping was able to capture Walter. Olson immediately got on a plane and was reunited with Walter Friday night. “He has been such a little love,” Olson said. "He is the same sweet boy he was before and maybe even sweeter because he has missed getting loved on!” Copyright...

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — People waving U.S. and Trump flags rallied Saturday at the Michigan Capitol as speakers cast doubt on the results of the Nov. 3 election and encouraged Republican lawmakers to deliver Michigan's electoral votes to the president. “We all know the president won an overwhelming victory on Tuesday and it’s got to stay that way,” Mark Johnston of Grosse Pointe Woods insisted. Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump by more than 140,000 votes in Michigan, according to unofficial results. But since the election, the campaign and some residents have filed lawsuits, alleging fraud in the counting of Detroit absentee ballots. Judges, however, have refused to stop certification of the results. There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the U.S. election. Judge Timothy Kenny said claims in Detroit were not "credible." Randy Bishop, a conservative radio host in northern Michigan, urged Republican leaders in the Legislature to “break the law” and seat Trump electors instead of Biden supporters when the state's 16 electoral votes are officially entered. The GOP lawmakers have said they won't do it. Some...

    AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine's biggest fall hunting seasons are entering their final two weeks of the year. The firearms season for deer hunters ends Nov. 28. That's also the final day of the year for the bear and moose hunts. The turkey hunt is already finished for the fall, and will return in the spring. The deer hunt continues in December for hunters who use muzzleloaders and archery. It's still legal to take deer via archery in some parts of the state until Dec. 12. That's also the final day of the muzzleloader season. Maine wildlife officials offered more deer hunting permits this year in an attempt to control the growth of the herd.

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — U.S. Rep. Don Young announced Thursday that he has tested positive for COVID-19, a day after winning his 25th term in the U.S. House. The 87-year-old representative made the announcement on Twitter. “I am feeling strong, following proper protocols, working from home in Alaska and ask for privacy at this time,” the tweet from his verified account said. A message sent to his spokesman wasn’t immediately returned. Last March, Young spoke to a group of senior citizens and downplayed the virus, saying it was overblown and fueled by the media. He called the coronavirus the “beer virus.” Young is the longest-ever serving Republican in the U.S. House. He was first elected in 1973. On Wednesday, he was declared the winner in the 2020 race, defeating Alyse Galvin. Since he has the longest tenure of current members, he carries the ceremonial title of dean of the U.S. House. It carries no official duties beyond swearing in the House speaker. He's Alaska's sole representative in the U.S. House. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may...
    It’s "Ecce Homo" all over again. A sculpture in Palencia, Spain, that was restored is gaining attention worldwide, and it’s not for the artist’s impressive attention to detail. The sculpture, which was restored on the left, has drawn laughs and criticisms over its poor representation of the original, on the right. (AP Photo/Alberto Calleja -left image- & Agencia ICAL -right image) The sculpture, which sits on the exterior of an ornate office building in the city, once featured the realistic visage of a woman smiling, the Associated Press reported. However, now the interestingly “restored” statue has been likened to a “potato” rather than a woman. The restoration also appears to have added what looks like a sheep’s head next to a goat. Its absence in the original photo suggests it may have fallen off and the tenants of the building simply replaced it while working on the statue’s face. The disfigurement was bought to light by a local artist who lives near the office building and was tipped off by a florist on his street. Antonio Capel posted before...
    BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The prosecutor in Vermont’s largest county is collecting items to help the homeless ahead of the winter season. Chittenden County State’s Attorney Sarah George is working to create “emergency kits” to help the homeless. They're looking for donations of travel-sized products, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, sanitizing wipes, and other hygiene items. They are also looking for individually packed snacks, hats and gloves. “Even if for a week, they have this particular bag available to them and that week is easier for them,” George told Mychamplainvalley.com. “We’re going into perhaps one of the hardest winters Vermont has ever seen and we want to make sure the community members we can help can be taken care of.” George said that when basic needs are met, people are less likely to commit crimes. George says that once the kits are assembled they they will be distributed to a number of community partners. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The Latest on the Masters (all times local): 8:05 a.m. Turns out there is some normalcy to this Masters: Rain. About a half-hour after Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player hit honorary tee shots before the smallest crowd ever, a rumble could be heard from Amen Corner. It wasn't a roar, but an approaching storm. The course was evacuated because of lightning in the area at about 7:35 a.m. Because of the move to November and the tight window of daylight hours, play began off both sets of tees. And with no spectators, only about 500 people — Augusta National members and family, a few wives of players, media and tournament officials — gathered around the first tee to watch Nicklaus and Player hit their drives. Nicklaus had his wife, Barbara, dressed in the white coveralls for caddies. Most jarring was the sound of a drone — a first for the Masters. Club Chairman Fred Ridley said two drones would be used for the week. Also peculiar was 1988 champion Sandy Lyle wearing suspenders. And when he...

    By The Associated Press Is it safe yet to fly during the pandemic? Public health experts say staying home is best to keep yourself and others safe from infection. But if you're thinking about flying for the holidays, you should know what to expect. Flights are getting more crowded and more airlines plan to stop blocking seats to accommodate the growing number of people taking to the skies again. Starting Dec. 1, Southwest will join United and American in allowing every seat on planes to be sold. JetBlue will scale back the number of blocked seats, and — along with Delta and Alaska — plans to drop all limits some time next year. The airline industry says it's safe to fly, pointing to a report it funded that found the risk of viral spread on planes very low if everyone wears a mask, since planes have good ventilation and strong air filters. But the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that sitting within 6 feet of others — sometimes for hours — can still increase your risk of...

    By The Associated Press The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world: ___ The Hungarian soccer federation says fans will no longer be allowed to attend the national team’s European Championship playoff game on Thursday. About 18,000 fans could have been in the 67,000-capacity Puskas Arena in Budapest for Hungary’s match against Iceland. A Euro 2020 place is at stake. But the Hungarian government has announced new restrictions to cope with the worsening coronavirus pandemic. An official attendance of 18,531 watched Ferencvaros host Juventus last week in a Champions League game at the national stadium. Budapest is among 12 host cities scattered across the continent for Euro 2020. Hungary will have two home games in Group F if it qualifies for next year’s postponed tournament.

    By The Associated Press The Latest on Week 9 in the NFL (all times EST): ___ 1:20 p.m. The second pass of Jake Luton’s NFL career went for a touchdown. The Jacksonville Jaguars rookie from Oregon State, making his pro debut in place of Gardner Minshew (thumb), dropped a 73-yard dime to DJ Chark on third down and 8. It was exactly what the Jaguars were hoping for when they inserted Luton into the lineup following a bye week.

    AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine's fall turkey hunt is ending for the season. The state has two turkey hunts, in the fall and spring. Fall hunters are allowed to take turkeys of either sex, while spring hunters can take only bearded turkeys. The fall season ends Saturday for 2020. While the turkey season is ending, numerous other fall hunts are still going on in Maine. It's still legal to hunt the rest of the state's “big four” — deer, moose and bears — until Nov. 28. Deer season extends into December for some archers and muzzleloaders. The fall hunts are subject to geographic restrictions and other rules. Hunters are advised to check with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife first. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
