House Jan. 6 panel to issue final report week after next: CBS News Flash Dec. 9, 2022

The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol plans to release its final report the week of Dec. 19 and will likely make criminal referrals to the Justice Department. The House voted to repeal the military’s COVID vaccine mandate in passing a sweeping $858 billion defense spending measure. And newly minted one and five dollar bills were signed, for the first time ever, by women: Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and U.S. Treasurer Lynn Malerba. Their signatures will appear on bills going into circulation next year.

What does a Doric column look like | I Say

Though some are long gone now, the facades of buildings housing many Red Bluff business ventures over the years live on in our memory … and if memory dims, there are photographs remaining such as the many hanging on a wall in my office, now at the ranch. Thereon hang a plethora of photos of the old days. Said photos, for example, depict The Tremont Hotel, Lyon and Garrett Hardware, and our former classically designed high school at 1203 Franklin Street with its imposing large front entry masonry promenade plus stately Doric columns on the building itself…but what does a Doric column look like? Sources say The Doric order is characterized by a plain, unadorned column capital and a column that rests directly on the stylobate of the temple without a base. What is a stylobate?  It is a continuous base supporting a row of columns. In my day at RBUHS, circa 1943-1947, our gang hung out on said promenade in front of the school building itself. Ah..those were the days! In addition, on my wall are cast photos of past plays in which yours

Bridge: Dec. 9, 2022

Alfred Sheinwold, who originated this column 60 years ago, was an exceptional columnist, in part because each of his columns focused on just a single point of play. Cover today’s East-West cards. You’re declarer at 6NT and start with three diamond tricks, three hearts and two clubs. All you must do is handle the spades effectively. The actual declarer won the first diamond in his hand and led a spade to dummy’s ten. East took his singleton jack and led a heart, and South won and tried a second spade to the queen. That finesse worked, but when East discarded, West had to get a spade trick. FOUR TRICKS South’s play would have been fine if he needed five spade tricks, but to make 6NT he needed only four. South could cash the ace and later lead a spade toward dummy, but then he might have an awkward guess. South should start with a spade to the queen. If East had the king, South would finesse with the ten later. The correct play gains when East has the singleton jack. DAILY QUESTION You hold: S

Ask Amy: Our pastor says he won’t be leading Blue Christmas

Dear Amy: This is a little bit strange, perhaps. But every year my (Protestant) church hosts a “Blue Christmas” service. This service has always had a big impact on me, allowing me to basically unleash the sadness that seems to overtake me every Christmas. Our pastor just announced that he will not conduct a Blue Christmas service this year. The reason? He has endured several personal losses of his own this year, and he quite honestly told the congregation that he doesn’t feel able to lead this service. Ironic, right? Anyway, I’m not sure how to react to this, and I’m wondering if you have any ideas? Am I Blue Dear Blue: This situation is a reminder that clergy members are people, too. Sometimes, even they cannot rise above their own vulnerable humanity in order to serve others. Related Articles Advice | Ask Amy: I want my wedding guests to wear yellow and not speak.

Busted shoes, raw nerves and Red Robin: The stories behind Justin Tucker’s pursuit of Ravens history

All these years later, after 351 field goals and 410 extra points over 11 regular seasons in Baltimore, after another 14 field goals and 27 extra points over five postseasons, Justin Tucker still remembers his first. “Yeah, that was a 46-yarder,” the Ravens kicker recalled Thursday, reciting the facts of his first kick as if the team’s 2012 season opener had happened only days ago. The spot between the hash marks? “Left middle.” The game itself? “‘Monday Night Football.’ First drive of the game against the Bengals.” The most accurate kicker in NFL history hasn’t missed many since. Heading into Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tucker is two points away from breaking kicker Matt Stover’s franchise scoring record (1,464 points). He might not remember all of his kicks as a Raven, but some of the biggest ones are hard to forget. Just days away from a potentially historic afternoon inside Acrisure Stadium, Tucker broke them down with The Baltimore Sun. 2012, Week 1: 46-yard FG vs. Bengals The first kick of Tucker’s NFL career wasn’t easy. But then, winning the starting job hadn’t been
