At a Shelter in Texas, Desperate for Clues to What Happened Back Home

SAN ANTONIO — Michelle McGowen could live with the likelihood that her home was lost. But she was desperate to know one thing: Were Uncle Jon and Uncle Paul still alive?Stubborn and in frail health, the two men decided to anchor down with dogs and each other in their coastal Texas town of Aransas Pass. She, her two sons and their father boarded buses and fled inland ahead of the storm on Thursday, landing on cots in the gymnasium of a shuttered middle school here in San Antonio that is now home for hundreds of evacuees who fled the soaking destruction of Hurricane Harvey.As San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and other cities prepare thousands of beds for new waves of people fleeing the rising floodwaters, Ms. McGowen and those who have already found dry ground are a glimpse of the potential humanitarian emergency on the horizon. They have few clothes, no cars or way home, and are living in a haze of uncertainty, searching for answers from home as to what — and who — survived.They watch television coverage in the hopes that a drone camera or news helicopter might flit past their neighborhoods. They hunt through the social media feeds of friends who stayed behind, looking for clues on whether a neighbor’s home was wrecked or spared. They dial and redial phone numbers that go straight to voicemail, or just ring and ring.PhotoIban Martinez, center, with his mother at a temporary shelter at the George R.

Live Briefing: Harvey Live Updates: More Rain and Rescues as Storm Lashes Texas

The flooding could get worse in Houston.The Army Corps of Engineers on Monday began releasing water from flood-control reservoirs, which is likely to worsen flooding in parts of Houston, Mayor Sylvester Turner said.The Buffalo Bayou, the major waterway flowing west to east through the heart of the city, is already at record-high flood levels, and was projected to remain that way for days, even without the release from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs at the western edge of Houston.“As they increase the water and it comes down, the water level along Buffalo Bayou, in all probability, it will increase,” Mr. Turner said at a news conference.People who were not in a crisis state yesterday may find themselves in a crisis state today,” he added.With the reservoirs at capacity, the Army Corps began releasing water from them before dawn.

Trump Tweets Stoke Voter Fraud Claim and Attack News Media

Gone the Next Ben Rehder Genre: Mysteries & Thrillers Publish Date: June 8, 2015 Publisher: Ben Rehder Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts—the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report—and with his history, who can blame them?—it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.   Edgar and Shamus Award finalist Ben Rehder's novels have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. Reviews for Ben Rehder's novels: “Murderously funny.”  —Chicago Tribune “Another of Rehder’s relentlessly twisted tales. Outrageous fun.”  —Kirkus Reviews “Wickedly funny.”  —Dallas Morning News “The odd cast of characters and bizarre plots and subplots make for a rollicking good read.”  —Houston Chronicle “Rehder has made the leap from writing skillful comic pleasantries to pulverizing satire.” — Austin American-Statesman  “Rehder writes with an assured hand and a knowing tip of the wide-brimmed cowboy hat to the ways and wiles of the characters that people his distinctly Texan landscape."

Judge’s Radical Exxon Ruling Could Turn The Legal System Upside Down

A Texas federal judge’s recent order — that the attorneys general of Massachusetts and New York must submit to questioning by lawyers for ExxonMobil about why they are investigating the company — is highly unusual and unwarranted, as is the underlying lawsuit brought by ExxonMobil against the prosecutors. If upheld, this approach could turn the legal system upside down, allowing wrongdoers possessing sufficient resources to file lawsuits that paralyze law enforcement efforts aimed at protecting the public. Although the Texas judge stated that he found sufficient grounds for ExxonMobil to investigate whether the two AGs had acted in bad faith, in fact the AGs have been engaged in activities that are commonplace and entirely appropriate for state prosecutors: (1) cooperating with AGs from other states, (2) consulting with experts about possible unlawful activity, (3) seeking documents to investigate that activity, and (4) speaking in public about the matters under review. Summary Dallas-based United States District Judge Ed Kinkeade has granted permission to oil and gas giant ExxonMobil to question under oath Massachusetts’ attorney general, Maura Healey, and New York’s attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, as to their motivations for investigations of the company. Issuing orders in a lawsuit filed by ExxonMobil, a case aimed at stopping Healey from going forward with her investigation, Judge Kinkeade has directed the two AGs to come to Dallas on December 13 to face depositions from ExxonMobil’s high-powered legal team. Buoyed by the judge’s ruling, and possessing seemingly-limitless resources to engage in litigation, ExxonMobil also now has issued subpoenas in the case to non-profit environmental groups and private lawyers that provided advice and information to the two attorneys general […]

Earth To Pebble Mine: Stay Away From Bristol BayWorld Conservation Congress Registers Overwhelming International Opposition to Mega-Mine That…

A new chapter opened today in the battle against the proposed Pebble Mine, as the World Conservation Congress overwhelmingly adopted a motion opposing the embattled mega-mine and other large-scale mining in the Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska and urging the U.S. government to prevent the issuance of permits. With this action, an international body has for the first time formally joined longstanding opposition to the massive copper and gold project — a project that, for years, has been the focus of a relentless, broad-based campaign in Alaska and the lower 48 states to stop it. If permitted, the Pebble Mine would be the largest open pit mine in North America and perhaps the world, sited in the headwaters of the world’s greatest wild salmon fishery in Bristol Bay, Alaska, which produces up to 50 million wild salmon each year. The mega-mine would create a hole nearly as deep as the Grand Canyon; generate an estimated 10 billion tons of waste (enough to fill a major football stadium up to 3,900 times); and cover an area larger than Manhattan. Photo by Robert Glenn Ketchum The reputation of the World Conservation Congress for environmental expertise and science-based decision-making make this unequivocal international action especially notable. Hosted every four years by the world’s largest network of conservation experts – the 1,300 member International Union for the Conservation of Nature (or “IUCN”) – the Congress brings together thousands of scientists and other environmental professionals from over 170 countries, including members from 89 states, 129 government agencies, and over 1,000 domestic and international non-governmental organizations. The landslide vote announced today was virtually unanimous — 100% of the countries voting supported the motion and, among the non-state members, only four of all the votes cast opposed the motion. The final vote count is expected to be posted on the IUCN’s website later today. The Congress’ action against the Pebble Mine is also significant because of the unusual diversity of the motion’s sponsors, pairing for the very first time, among others, the Natural Resources Defense Council (“NRDC”) and the Dallas Safari Club […]
