    Golocal247.com news

    By Jim Christie SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Crews fought their way across rugged, steep terrain on Tuesday in a push to gain full control of the deadliest wildfires in California history, as search-and-rescue teams picked through an ashy moonscape of destroyed homes looking for victims. "There are still some concerns that if the west winds come up or we get some erratic winds they could push our lines, but as of right now we're looking pretty good," Steve Crawford, a fire operations chief, told reporters at a briefing in Sonoma County in the heart of California's celebrated wine country. Already 41 people have been confirmed killed in the fires, which erupted last week and were driven by dry, hot winds into Northern California communities, giving residents little or no chance to escape.

  • Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police  

    Golocal247.com news

    A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?

"I have told the White House and (Republican) leaders that if they simply stick to their own caps, the rest of the budget is fine and I'll vote yes," Paul wrote on Twitter. The ball is in their court." Republican leaders can afford to lose only two Republican votes on the budget plan, which would pave the way for large-scale tax cuts, if Democrats remain united in opposition.

  • Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensioner

    Golocal247.com news

    Human remains have been found inside a crocodile that is believed to have killed a pensioner in Queensland last week.  The 4.3-metre estuarine crocodile was captured on Monday night at the Mowbray River near Craiglie in northeast Australia, close to where Anne Cameron went missing from an aged care facility near Port Douglas seven days ago. The 79-year-old is thought to have become disorientated on a walk and wandered into dense bushland. Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility. Wildlife officers set traps  to try to catch the creature that is believed to have killed Ms Cameron. The captured animal was examined in Cairns on Tuesday, with human remains found inside. A Saltwater Crocodile is pictured at the Australian Reptile Park in Sydney  Credit:  Ian Waldie/Getty Images "Investigations continue with officers preparing a report for the coroner," police said. Isabella Eggins, a granddaughter of Ms Cameron, said  last week the family feared she had died in tragic circumstances. “It is my deep regret to inform you that following an extensive search and the discovery of certain items as a result of that search, we have the firm belief that my mother Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances,” Ms Eggins said on Facebook. Saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to seven metres long and weigh more than a tonne, are a common feature of the vast continent's tropical north and kill an average of two people a year. A series of crocodile attacks in the region in recent years has prompted calls for the state government to order a cull – a move that has so far been rejected. Ms Cameron's family also said they did not want to see any crocs culled. "The crocodiles... are not responsible for being crocodiles, and doing what crocodiles do," her son Craig Eggins said, according to the Cairns Post.

    Bombardier's alliance with Airbus creates new hurdles for Boeing, but the US giant could respond by deepening its collaboration with Brazil's Embraer and launching a new aircraft, analysts say. The surprise deal with Airbus was designed to let Bombardier proceed with its C Series program and avert draconian US sanctions that had been ordered in a preliminary Commerce Department decision in response to a Boeing complaint. "Anything that's good for Airbus is bad for Boeing of course," said Jim Corridore, an analyst at CFRA Research, summarizing the reaction of many observers to the Airbus-Bombardier venture.
