The Latest: California pot shops report steady crowds

01 January 2018 23:55:05 WN.com - World News

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on recreational marijuana sales in California (all times local): 1:10 p.m. The manager of a cannabis dispensary in Sacramento says crowds are good for the first day of legal sales of recreational pot in California, but not as big as for stoner-favorite holidays like 4/20. Shayna Schonauer, the regional manager of the RCP Sacramento dispensary, says Monday's crowds meet her expectations. She says the pace Monday was not super-overwhelming. The dispensary, in a warehouse-style building, saw a range of customers from regular medical users, to recreational smokers who buy on the black market, to those who had limited familiarity with marijuana, Schonauer said.

Revered sniper becomes hero among Iraq’s Shiites

01 January 2018 23:55:05 WN.com - World News

BASRA, Iraq — Ali Jayad al-Salhi, a veteran sniper in an Iraqi militia, was killed in fighting with the Islamic State group last year. He then vaulted into legend, virtually becoming a new saint for the Shiite community. Posters of al-Salhi adorn storefronts, homes and car windows in his home city of Basra and other Shiite areas. One bakery even sells cakes with his face. Poems praise his valor and piety. His rifle, with which he’s said to have killed nearly 400 militants, is now in a museum in the holiest Shiite city, Karbala. ......

In Mexico, reporters face perils and lure of cartel power

ACAYUCAN, Mexico — For some, Gumaro Perez was an experienced reporter who got on well with locals and earned the nickname “the red man” for his coverage of bloody crimes in Veracruz, one of Mexico’s deadliest states for journalists and civilians alike. In the eyes of prosecutors, Perez was an alleged drug cartel operative who met a grisly end when he was shot dead Dec. 19 while attending a Christmas party at his 6-year-old son’s school in Acayucan, purportedly by gunmen from a rival gang. ......

Israeli ruling party members call for annexing settlements

01 January 2018 23:55:05 WN.com - World News

JERUSALEM — The ruling Likud Party’s central committee has unanimously endorsed a resolution calling for the annexation of West Bank settlements, sending a tough message to the Palestinians in the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Israel’s capital. The decision Sunday night marked the latest step by Likud to distance itself from the internationally backed idea of establishing an independent Palestinian state as part of a future peace deal. The Palestinians condemned the decision and accused Trump of emboldening the Likud party. The central committee is only an advisory body, and Sunday’s vote did not reflect an official policy change. ......

North Korea’s overture to Seoul could impact alliance with US

01 January 2018 23:55:05 WN.com - World News

SEOUL — North Korea’s surprise call on Monday for direct talks with South Korea could drive a wedge into the decades-old alliance between Seoul and Washington, potentially creating a reprieve from months of tensions but also undercutting President Trump’s tough approach to the nuclear-armed North. A New Year’s Day speech by Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader, contained a dramatic shift in tone and policy regarding the South. After ignoring South Korea for years, Kim called for urgent dialogue to discuss improving ties and easing military tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula, even as he claimed an ability to strike the mainland United States with nuclear missiles. ......

Lingard, the late developer finally flourishing at United

01 January 2018 23:55:04 WN.com - World News

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — For all the recent talk about the money Jose Mourinho has — or hasn't — spent at Manchester United, his best player at the moment might be one who cost the club nothing. United prides itself on the blossoming of its youth-team graduates and Jesse Lingard is the latest to flourish on the big stage. Lingard scored his seventh goal in his last nine Premier League games to wrap up United's 2-0 win at Everton on Monday, which ended the team's run of three draws that might have fully knocked it out of title contention. At age 25, the forward is finally establishing himself as a first-team regular at United, proving much more...

Without the ability to pick from a generation of young American stars, USA Hockey is leaning on a longtime NHL winger as captain and hopes a diverse roster can capture an Olympic medal. At the Winter Classic in New York on Monday, the U.S. named veteran Brian Gionta captain as it unveiled its roster for the Pyeongchang Olympics, the first games without NHL players since 1994. There's no Patrick Kane, Johnny Gaudreau, Auston Matthews, Jack Eichel or Jonathan Quick, so the U.S. men's hockey team is made up of Gionta, four college players, three from the American Hockey League and 15 playing in professional leagues across Europe. "We really like our roster," general manager Jim Johannson said....

‘Smothered’ and ‘shoved aside’ in rural America

Sweeney, 60, raises Angus cows and corn on the flat, green farmland of central Iowa. Just 1 in every 7 Americans live in places like this: Rural counties have 72 percent of the nation’s land but a shrinking population as urban areas have ballooned in size and wealth. In recent years, Sweeney has felt a growing “disconnect” between how people think in cities and in places like Buckeye, a town of...
