Moore Accuser Says She Wrote Part of Yearbook Inscription

Mr. Moore’s campaign said it would address what it called the “Nelson yearbook forgery” at a news conference in Montgomery on Friday afternoon.The inscription has become a major focus in Mr. Moore’s efforts to refute claims by nine women that he made unwanted advances or worse toward them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. The apparent difference in the lettering of the inscription and the words underneath, which include a date and the words “Olde Hickory House,” have spawned weeks of amateur analyses and conspiracy theories, and have led Mr. Moore to repeatedly suggest the yearbook was a fake.“There are a lot of Alabamians who are looking for any piece of evidence to say this was all an attempt to trash the name of Roy Moore, and there will be a lot of people who do seize on it and try to make that argument,” said Elizabeth BeShears, a Republican consultant in Alabama who said she believes Mr. Moore’s accusers.“The tide has turned in his favor in the last week and a half or so,” Ms. BeShears said, “and I think this really will probably help him.”Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

VENTURA, Calif. — The quick-moving fires that have forced thousands of Californians to evacuate their homes continued to sweep across the southern part of the state on Friday, destroying buildings and taxing fire crews that have been working for days.Evacuees in San Diego County, where a 4,100-acre fire remained completely uncontained, told of quickly encroaching flames that left at least six people injured, 25 racehorses dead and 85 structures ruined.“I got the ‘Get the hell out of here’ evacuation,” said Paul Anderson, who fled his home in Bonsall on Thursday. “About four cop cars rolling around the neighborhood. ‘Get out!’ ”The fire Mr. Anderson fled was among seven burning Friday in Southern California, including a flare-up near Alpine in Cleveland National Forest and a blaze in Ventura County that has burned 132,000 acres and destroyed more than 400 buildings.

Israel Pinzon, a spokesman for the state firefighting agency.Here’s the latest:• President Trump on Friday declared an emergency in California and ordered additional federal aid.

Supported byU.S.California Today: A Special Fires EditionGood morning.(Want to get California Today by email? Here’s the sign-up.)PhotoFirefighters in Ventura, Calif., on Tuesday.Credit Jae C. Hong/Associated PressThe year-end fires sweeping Southern California this week have raised a worrisome question: Where is the rain?The rainy season typically starts in October and lasts through April, with the heaviest rain coming from December through March. Precipitation has been at or above-normal in Northern California, but there has been little rain in the south.Since Oct. 1 just 2.3 inches have fallen in Los Angeles, and 1.15 inches in San Diego, which is way below the normal rainfall for that period, according to the California Department of Water Resources.That lack of precipitation is one reason fires have exploded across Southern California this week, officials said. Thousands of people were evacuated across Los Angeles County and in the path of another fire in Ventura.Continue reading the main storyIt is too soon to ring any drought alarm bells. Still, the memory of the long, punishing drought that ended last year — the worst in this state’s modern history — remains fresh. And a report earlier this week by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory said that atmospheric conditions caused by global warming, including the creation of a resilient, water-blocking atmospheric ridge, means even less rain in the future.Continue reading the main storyContinue reading the main story“I still have a drought hangover so I wake up worried about drought,” said Felicia Marcus, the head of the state Water Resources Control Board.Southern California is dealing with the same collection of forces that accounted for the intensity of the wine country fires: an unusually wet winter led to extensive brush growth and a record-hot October baked the growth into kindling. The final ingredient was the heavy Santa Ana winds whipping across Southern California.“It was sort of a trifecta for Napa and Sonoma,” Ms. […]
