A “view” from the Rose Garden: The nine

President Donald Trump announced his first two Supreme Court nominees in the East Room of the White House, and both in prime time on a weeknight. Many people commented on the vaguely game-show suspense the former host of “The Apprentice” brought to the process: the surprising lack of leaks about the pick, the hint that two finalists might appear for the announcement that went to then-Judge Neil Gorsuch in 2017, and the president again entering the room by himself before revealing then-Judge Bret...

Utah family sues police, claiming 'gratuitous violence'

The family of a Utah man who was shot at nearly 30 times and killed as he ran from police filed a lawsuit Friday against Salt Lake City and its police department. The family of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal family allege the officers engaged in “gratuitous violence” by shooting at him between 27 and 29 times after he was already on the ground and incapacitated. “Despite the family’s attempts to negotiate, it is apparent that the SLCPD and the Salt Lake City Mayor’s Office (are) not interested in ...

Alexander: Pac-12 football is back, but the optics aren’t great

So the Pac-12 will attempt to have a fall football season after all. I’m torn. Should my reaction be “hooray” or “horrors?” Let’s see: Students largely are limited to virtual learning, yet are still socializing, doing what young adults do, and spreading COVID-19. In case you missed it shortly before Thursday’s Pac-12 announcement, the county in which the University of Colorado is located announced restrictions on gatherings of anyone from 18 to 22 years of age – including team practices – until ...

COVID-19 cases rise in US heartland, home to anti-mask feelings

By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH, NICKY FORSTER and JOCELYN NOVECK | Associated Press MISSION, Kan. — It began with devastation in the New York City area, followed by a summertime crisis in the Sun Belt. Now the coronavirus is striking smaller cities in the heartland, often in conservative corners of America where anti-mask sentiment runs high. The spread has created new problems at hospitals, schools and colleges in the Midwest, as well as in parts of the West. Wisconsin is averaging more than 2,000 ne...

Travel: Ready to return to Vegas? Here’s what’s new

If what happens in Vegas really stays in Vegas, then there’d be no worry of bringing COVID-19 back home after your southern Nevada getaway. Alas, the famous slogan doesn’t apply to contagious diseases. That’s why the novel coronavirus pandemic is no joke even in a city crawling in comedy clubs, not that anyone can take in a show just yet. But after months of being uncharacteristically lifeless, the vast majority of casinos, hotels, restaurants and stores are back in business downtown and along t...

Boondocking in Rabbit Valley - Day 3: Exploring BLM Trails

 Thursday, September 24Decided to explore some of the trails I'd spotted while riding to/from the Knowles Overlook Campground on Wednesday.  Trail #2, which I began enroute to Knowles Campground, turned out to be not much in terms of scenery.I cut back to McDonald Creek Road and instead of turning left to go to the campground, kept going straight on a road which led to a locked gate at the Utah border.  On the way to said gate, I had spotted an interesting rock formation so I turned around and p...

Second Circuit panel rules unanimously that district courts have broad discretion to consider "any extraordinary and compelling reason for release that a defendant might raise"

I am very pleased to see the first of what may soon be many circuit rulings on the reach and application of the compassionate release provisions amended by the federal FIRST STEP Act.  As regular readers know, in lots of (pre-COVID) prior posts I made much of the provision of the FIRST STEP Act allowing federal courts to directly reduce sentences under the (so-called compassionate release) statutory provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(1)(A) without awaiting a motion by the Bureau of Prisons.  I ha...

Jamal Murray’s style points can’t match the Lakers’ deep stable

Jamal Murray spent Thursday night hanging letters on the Lakers. Add it all up and he probably won five simultaneous “horse” games. The problem for Murray, and Denver, is that you have to play “rhinoceros,” or something even more multi-syllabic, to beat the Lakers. The letters were too plentiful and the limbs too long, especially the arm belonging to LeBron James, who turned away Murray’s drive on the final play that really mattered. “LeBron asked for the assignment,” coach Frank Vogel said. “Na...

Denver’s Jamal Murray climbs up reputation rung in NBA playoffs

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> However these Western Conference Finals turn out, observers will agree on at least one thing: Jamal Murray has raised his game. The fourth-year guard is the highest draft pick on the Denver Nuggets’ roster, landed at No. 7 in 2016. At the time, Nuggets coach Michael Malone thought he was a steal even so. And now as he averages 26.6 points, 6.5 assists while shooting better than 47 percent from three in 17 playoff games, he’s outshone a lot of even what Malone could have...

Peterson Ventures, a firm that quietly backed Allbirds and Bonobos, just closed a $65 million fund
