Escapee from psychiatric hospital charged with kidnapping, assaulting group home worker, authorities say

Coleman pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the fatal shooting of his father in 2017. Coleman had initially been charged with second-degree murder. He told authorities the shooting was an accident. He was being held at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Southeast Washington. His next hearing in the manslaughter case is Oct. 23.

An arrest affidavit filed in court says St. Elizabeths staff discovered Coleman missing at 7:30 a.m. Sunday. The affidavit says that in his place, workers found “a decoy made of sheets, towels and blue painters tape constructed in a manner to mimic the form of a human body.”

A review of surveillance video showed Coleman leaving his room Saturday night, walking down a corridor and entering a secured room near the exit, the affidavit says. He remained there for several minutes, then left by “manipulating the door,” the affidavit says. The court documents do not elaborate on how

Poor People’s Campaign, a liberal advocacy group, plans to hold protests at McConnell’s home, office

The Poor People’s Campaign, a liberal advocacy group, had already planned to stage protests Monday at Mitch McConnell’s home in Washington and his offices in Kentucky to demand the Senate majority leader pay for his “sins.”

Organizers said those protests will take on new significance in the wake of the death Friday of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Mr. McConnell’s plan to move quickly on a Senate vote on her replacement.

Now protesters expect a much larger crowd and intend to try to extend a traffic jam around Capitol Hill too, according to Zillah Wesley, one of the organizers.

“As a longtime D.C. resident, we’re already jacked up,” Ms. Wesley said. “You’re really about to denigrate our Supreme Court? It’s just like a worst-case scenario in my mind.”

The protests will be the latest attempt on the political left to demonize the Kentucky Republican, a consummate Washington insider

Group issues Halloween 2020 guidelines, color-coded coronavirus risk map

This corrects a previous version of this story that identified the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the source of the guidelines and map noted in this article.

CHICAGO (NEXSTAR) — What will Halloween look like this year? One thing’s for sure. It will no doubt be different than years past.

Halloween 2020 converges with a full moon, a blue moon, Daylight Saving Time — and it falls on a Saturday.

Of course, the holiday is also happening during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This week, the Halloween and Costume Association (HCA) issued resources and an interactive map to help families stay safe this Halloween.

The group created an interactive map on its website with color-coded risk levels for each county throughout the country. There are four risk levels: green, yellow, orange, and red — with green representing the least amount of risk

Saving Home: Group works to sell historic site

The community is in danger of losing one of its historic buildings.

One group remains determined to save it.

Located at 915 N. Oak St., the John Nelson Deming House waits for occupants. The home erected in 1898 has sat empty for more than a decade and landed on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation’s 2020 list of “places in peril.”

Vickie Everitte, a volunteer with the Valdosta Heritage Foundation, is part of a group working to find a home for this house.

What makes the two-story house unique, she said, is two things: this being one of three local homes with a Carolina porch and being built by John Nelson Deming.

A Carolina porch, also known as a rain porch, is where columns for the porch roof are not attached to the porch floor. This allows for the roof to extend out farther and keep water off

Oppenheimer: 3 Stocks That Could Surge Over 100% From Current Levels

So far, September has been a wild ride of ups and downs. Following the recent bout of volatility, stocks have ticked higher again. But as uncertainty regarding another rescue program and the presidential election continues to linger, where does the market go from here? Weighing in for Oppenheimer, Chief Investment Strategist John Stoltzfus argues that any market dips appear “relatively contained and orderly,” and present longer-term investors the chance to find “babies that got thrown out with the bathwater.” He noted, “For nervous investors the recent downdraft has presented opportunity to take some profits without FOMO (fear of missing out).”As for the tech heavyweights that powered the market’s five-month charge forward, the strategist believes “current expectations that technology stocks will remain under pressure for some time seem exaggerated.” Stoltzfus adds that the “core of technology stocks did not
