Southwest Flight Forced to Make Emergency Landing - ABC News

A Southwest Airlines flight from New Orleans to Orlando, Florida, was forced to make an emergency landing today in Pensacola, Florida, due to a "mechanical issue."

Photographs taken by passengers showed a large piece of one of the engines missing.

"We heard a loud boom at about 10,000 feet. Sounded like a 18 wheeler tire blowing and we started smelling smoke," passenger Stephanie Miller said.

Flight data showed that the plane descended from an altitude of 30,000 feet to 10,000 feet in just over eight minutes.

A spokesperson from the airline told ABC News that the plane, SW Flight 3472, suffered a "mechanical issue with the number one engine."


Michigan’s breakout star has no position — but all the talent | New York Post

Two years ago, Desmond Howard visited Michigan practice and left disgusted. He didn’t like what he saw. Yes, it was practice, but the effort was poor, the execution lacking. This wasn’t the Michigan the 1991 Heisman Trophy winner remembered.

The former Wolverine criticized the practice habits under then-coach Brady Hoke, and took plenty of abuse for it. But there was one positive the ESPN analyst took away with him that day. It was a true freshman named Jabrill Peppers. He shared his feelings on him, too.

“I took some flak on Twitter about that comment, and look where we are today,” Howard said in a phone interview.


Krauthammer: Now We Know Exactly Why Hillary Used a Private Server | Fox News Insider

Charles Krauthammer said that after a year of speculation and diversion, the issue of what Hillary Clinton's email scandal was about is finally clear.

"The issue we've always asked ourselves here is, why was she hiding this in the first place? Why did she have a private server? Obviously, she was concealing; what was she concealing?"

He said that the "most obvious possible answer" was the Clinton Foundation.

"Now, we're learning that exactly is what it was."

He said that the Foundation acted as a "stand-in" for a campaign while Clinton wasn't seeking office, in which donors bought access with the secretary of state.

"And it's not illegal, but it's corrupt."


Trump Campaign Bombs in Virginia, Again - The Daily Beast

PURCELLVILLE, Va. -- Mike Pence definitely chose the wrong place to give a stump speech.

Trump's VP nominee railed against Hillary Clinton in northern Virginia Saturday afternoon -- but he chose to do it at an evangelical Christian college with a history of anti-Trump sentiment. Students protested outside, while inside students stood in silent protest until they were ejected mid-speech.  

The protests and poor attendance at the speech at Patrick Henry College illustrate the challenges that Trump has appealing to evangelical Christians, especially younger ones, who are turned off by his tone, his campaign ideas and his personal history -- and are not at all assauged by his choice of Pence for his running mate.



Eyebrow-raising moves early in 3-2 loss show Cubs pulling out all stops - Chicago Tribune

Jason Hammel was furious.

Manager Joe Maddon was philosophical.

And rookie Rob Zastryzny was grateful.

At least the Cubs can say they're not content with a healthy lead in the National League Central after a series of curious moves Saturday in a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. The setback snapped a four-game winning streak and ended their run of scoring at least three runs at 24 games.



Jaycee Dugard loses court case against federal parole officials

A federal appeals court decided by a 2-1 vote Friday that Jaycee Dugard, who was kidnapped as a child and held by a parolee for 18 years, cannot hold federal parole officials liable for failing to supervise her abductor.

“Phillip Garrido, a parolee with a terrible history of drug-fueled sexual violence, committed unspeakable crimes against Jaycee Dugard for 18 years,” U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge John B. Owens wrote. “State and federal authorities missed many opportunities to stop these tragic events.”

Dugard received a $20-million settlement from California and sued the federal government for similar compensation.

“While our hearts are with Ms. Dugard, the law is not,” Owens, an appointee of President Obama based in San Diego, wrote for the majority.

The panel said federal law and its intersection with California law prevented her from being compensated “for the incompetence of the parole office that was supposedly supervising Garrido.“


Brock Lesnar discusses how much he's being paid to return to the UFC | FOX Sports

At the height of his popularity in the UFC, Brock Lesnar was not only one of the biggest draws in the history of the sport, but he was also one of the highest paid athletes on the roster.

It doesn't look like that will change as Lesnar returns to the promotion at UFC 200 for a fight against Mark Hunt that will once again fill his bank account with a very hefty payday.

During a recent interview with ESPN, Lesnar was asked about the financial boon he stood to gain as a result of returning to the UFC and while he didn't disclose exact figures, it's clear he's going to be cashing in after UFC 200 is over.


Creating discomfort is the point of Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest

Last weekend, an Ethiopian runner named Feyisa Lelisa ran 26.1 miles in the Olympic men’s marathon, then raised his arms to form an X as he crossed the finish line. It was a form of protest of his nation’s government, and it had severe consequences that could linger indefinitely: It may be unsafe for him to return to his country, and so he did not go home with his delegation. It is possible he will never see his family again.

There are no such consequences for Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback who staged his own political protest on Friday by refusing to stand for the U.S. national anthem before a preseason NFL game.


Coldwater Creek added to the Corridor Search business directory

The Coralville Courier is pleased to announce the addition of Coldwater Creek to the 'Women's Wear and Accessories' category in the Corridor Search business directory.


In the early '80's Ann and Dennis Pence were thriving young advertising and marketing executives who dreamed of quitting New York City, starting a new life in nature, and opening a business that inspired people. They were instantly captivated by the majestic scenery of the great Northwest and decided to set up shop in Sandpoint, Idaho, home to the state's largest lake and biggest ski resort. In 1984 they launched Coldwater Creek as a catalog business with the promise of bringing customers "beautiful, unexpected, and extraordinary things". 30 years have passed since then and we make the same promise today.


Over the next 30 years the brand grew beyond catalog to include a website, more than 350 stores, and countless loyal customers. And for many of these years "the Creek" as it's affectionately known enjoyed status as the place for exciting fashion, great advice on how to wear it, and famously good personal service. Collections were thrilling. Service broke records for excellence. Our unique catalogs were much anticipated by customers and mimicked by the competition. And the brand and its customers became one and the same, sharing a passion for great wearable fashion as well as simple values like honesty, optimism, curiosity and community. This was a magical time in the brand's life when the Creek was at its very best. And we're dedicated to bringing it back.
