Feds running out of money to fight wildfires

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 17:21 Published in National News

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - Running out of money to fight wildfires at the peak of the season, the U.S. Forest Service is diverting $600 million from timber, recreation and other areas to fill the gap.

The nation's top wildfire-fighting agency was down to $50 million after spending $967 million so far this year, Forest Service spokesman Larry Chambers said Wednesday in an email.

Wildfire spending by other federal agencies takes the total to $1.2 billion.

Chambers says the $50 million the Forest Service has left is typically enough to pay for just a few days of fighting fires when the nation is at its top wildfire preparedness level, which went into effect Tuesday.

There are 51 large uncontained fires burning across the nation, making it tough to meet demands for fire crews and equipment.

San Diego Mayor feels more pressure from Democrats

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 17:20 Published in National News

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego businesswoman is the latest woman to publicly accuse Mayor Bob Filner of making unwanted sexual advances.

Dianne York said in a news conference in National City on Wednesday that Filner placed his hand on her buttocks while she posed for a photo with him after a meeting at his office about three months ago.

York first told her story to CNN.

She says she has reported the incident to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

At least 17 women have publicly accused Filner of behaving inappropriately toward them.

 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Attorney General Gary King says he will not challenge a move by the Dona Ana County clerk to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

King told reporters Wednesday that he didn't believe state laws prohibiting same-sex marriage were constitutional.

He also said he would not challenge any other county clerk who issued licenses.

Still, King warned that those marriages could be invalid if the state Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is not allowed in New Mexico.

The Dona Ana County clerk began issuing same-sex marriage licenses Wednesday after he said his review of state law allowed him to do so.

Couples immediately began arriving at a Las Cruces courthouse to receive licenses amid pending court challenges elsewhere in the state.
