Kent State suspends wrestler over Michael Sam slur

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 11:49 Published in Local News
KENT, Ohio (AP) - Kent State University has suspended a wrestler for making a derogatory comment on his Twitter account about former Missouri football player Michael Sam, who announced he is gay.
 
Kent State said the suspension for Sam Wheeler was indefinite.
 
Wheeler first tweeted Monday using a homophobic slur, saying he couldn't watch a sports program because they were talking about Sam, who is an NFL prospect.
 
The 20-year-old Wheeler exchanged tweets with others who defended Sam and gays. His Twitter account was then deactivated.
 
Wrestling coach Jim Andrassy said he had talked to Wheeler, and the wrestler is "remorseful." There was no response to an attempt Wednesday to reach Wheeler by email.

Judge sets November trial in marathon bombing

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 10:25 Published in National News

 

BOSTON (AP) - A judge has set a November trial date for Boston Marathon suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
 
Judge George O'Toole Jr. said Wednesday in U.S. District Court that he has set the trial for Nov. 3.
 
Several of the 260 people injured in the terrorist attack are in the courtroom for the hearing. Tsarnaev is not.
 
His lawyers had asked for a trial date no earlier than September 2015. Prosecutors want the trial this fall.
 
They allege that the 20-year-old Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan (TAM'-ehr-luhn), planted two homemade pressure cooker bombs near the marathon's finish line last April. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died following a shootout with police.
 
Prosecutors announced last month they will seek the death penalty against Tsarnaev, who has pleaded not guilty to 30 federal counts.

Missouri House takes aim at synthetic drugs

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 17:30 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House members have given first-round approval to legislation taking aim at synthetic drugs.
 
The bill would add several specific substances to what is considered synthetic marijuana.
 
It was endorsed by a voice vote Tuesday and needs a second vote before moving to the Senate.
 
In recent years, Missouri has tried to keep pace with evolving synthetic drugs and twice has approved legislation targeting them. Sponsoring House member Shawn Rhoads says the current bill is needed to stay ahead in the effort.
 
Lawmakers in 2010 barred spice cannabinoids sold as incense known as K2. A year later, the definition of marijuana in state drug laws was expanded to cover synthetics. The 2011 measure also barred substances marketed as incense or "bath salts" that mimic the effects of cocaine and marijuana.
