CDC, FDA Tell Dog Owners to Throw Out All Pig Ear Treats After Salmonella Outbreak Sickens 127 People

Federal agencies are advising pet owners to throw out all pig ear dog  treats amid an investigation into a multistate outbreak of salmonella that has sickened dozens of people across the nation. The warning was issued Wednesday in a coordinated effort between the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Consumers are urged not to purchase pig ear treats or feed them to their dogs; retailers are being told not to sell them anymore. The advisory comes after multiple products tested positive for salmonella and were linked to human illnesses, according to federal officials. A total of 127 people have been sickened across 33 states since the current outbreak began in June of 2015, according to CDC. The vast majority of the cases were reported after last October, however, with 34 illnesses since July 17.

Deputies Seek Pair Accused of Stealing Beer, Assaulting Guard at Victorville Supermarket

Investigators are working to identify a male and female wanted in connection with a beer heist at a Stater Bros. Market in Victorville this week. The man is also accused of punching a security guard in the face as the pair fled the grocery chain’s location at 13760 Bear Valley Road around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday, San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials said in a news release. The male was seen pushing a cart loaded with several cases of beer, while the female carried an additional case in her hands. They breezed past the checkout lanes and toward the exit, where they made contact with the guard. The assault allowed them to run from the store with the case the woman was carrying, but they left the shopping cart behind, officials said. Anyone with information on their identities can contact the sheriff’s Victorville station at 760-241-2911. Anonymous tips may be submitted via 800-782-7463 or www.wetip.com.

Dashcam Video Shows Plane’s Emergency Landing Into Oncoming Traffic in Washington

A state trooper’s dashcam captured a small plane making an emergency landing against oncoming traffic on a city street Thursday morning in Washington state, according to KTLA sister station KCPQ in Seattle. The plane’s fuel system malfunctioned above Parkland, about 6 miles south of Tacoma and 30 miles south of Seattle, the Washington State Patrol said. The aircraft was headed from the small town of Yelm to Boeing Field in Seattle. The pilot was forced to land the plane around 8:15 a.m. on Pacific Avenue between 135th and 143rd streets. The trooper who captured the footage just happened to be on patrol on Pacific Avenue when he saw the plane about to make the emergency landing. The dashcam video shows the plane flying low. The trooper then makes a U-turn and follows the small plane as it safely lands, avoiding cars coming toward it and halting to a stop just before reaching an intersection. The trooper and the pilot pushed the plane off of the road and into a nearby parking lot. There were no reports of injuries or damage. Trooper Thompson’s dash cam video…

Puerto Rico Still Has No Successor to Gov. Ricardo Rosselló on Day Before His Resignation

Less than 24 hours before Gov. Ricardo Rosselló was expected to leave office, Puerto Ricans had no idea who would replace him as political chaos threatened to paralyze the island with a constitutional crisis. Rosselló has promised to step down at 5 p.m. Friday in response to huge street protests by Puerto Ricans outraged at corruption, mismanagement and an obscenity-laced chat that was leaked in which the governor and 11 male allies made fun of women, gay people and victims of Hurricane Maria. “It’s frustrating. We’re in limbo,” said Jose Ramos, a taxi driver. “The island doesn’t have a path forward.” As one of his last acts, Rosselló put forward veteran politician and lawyer Pedro Pierluisi to fill the vacant secretary of state post, next in line for the governorship under the U.S. territory’s constitution. Pierluisi is a former representative to the U.S. Congress seen by most ordinary Puerto Ricans as a conciliatory, relatively uncontroversial figure, unlikely to be met by continued street demonstrations. “I offered to take a step forward for Puerto Rico at this moment given my love for my country,” Pierluisi said.…

Klay Thompson: ‘Ignorant’ to say Warriors dynasty is over

Klay Thompson is a confident man. Vegas is giving the Warriors just 13-1 odds to win the NBA championship next season without new Net Kevin Durant, and some don’t even believe they’ll make the postseason. Some prognosticators have said Durant’s departure and Thompson’s ACL injury spell the end of the Warriors’ dominant run. But Thompson is not among them. “I think that’s a little premature to say there’s no more dynasty,” Thompson said in an interview clip that aired on ESPN’s The Jump Thursday afternoon. “I mean, we still have Stephen Curry, two-time MVP, Draymond Green, defensive player of the year. Adding D’Angelo Russell was an incredible get for us. I mean, that kid’s going to blossom into a superstar in this league.” Russell was an All-Star last season in Brooklyn, but once Thompson returns from injury he may be relegated to the bench, unless Thompson knows something we don’t about a three-guard starting lineup. Klay Thompson on those who say the Warriors’ dynasty is over: “To say the dynasty is over is a little ignorant because I’m going to come back better and even…

California limits full-contact youth football practice to one hour a week

By ADAM BEAM SACRAMENTO (AP) — California’s governor has signed a law limiting full-contact practices for youth football teams to reduce brain injuries. State law already limits full-contact practices for middle and high school football teams to no more than 90 minutes per day, twice per week. Wednesday, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law to limit full contact practices for youth football teams to no more than 30 minutes per day for two days per week. The law bans full-contact practices for youth football teams during the offseason. The law also requires a medical professional be present for all games and an independent person attend all practices with the authority to remove players who show signs of an injury. The law is aimed at preventing a degenerative brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Researchers are studying the diseases’ link to frequent blows to the head, which occur more often in sports like football. The NFL and NCAA have changed the rules in recent years in an attempt to reduce head injuries. Last year, Democratic Assemblyman Kevin McCarty introduced a bill that…

Input sought on the future of California’s water use

REDDING — The California State Board of Food and Agriculture is hosting a series of public forums to allow farmers, ranchers and other stakeholders opportunities to provide input on the California’s Water Future. A meeting is set for 1-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6 at the Sheraton Redding Hotel at the Sundial Bridge, 820 Sundial Bridge Drive in Redding. State agencies are asking Californians to help shape a road map for meeting future water needs and ensuring environmental and economic resilience through the 21st century. This effort seeks to broaden California’s approach on water in the face of a range of existing challenges, including unsafe drinking water, major flood risks that threaten public safety, severely depleted groundwater aquifers, agricultural communities coping with uncertain water supplies and native fish populations threatened with extinction. Input from the public will help the Natural Resources Agency, California Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Food and Agriculture craft recommendations to Gov. Gavin Newsom to fulfill his April 29 executive order calling for a suite of actions to build a climate-resilient water system and ensure healthy waterways. Among the questions agency officials are considering:…
