  • More dead expected in destroyed Florida Panhandle towns after Michael

    Dozens of people remained missing on Sunday in Florida Panhandle communities reduced to ruins by Hurricane Michael as rescuers said they expected the death toll to rise and survivors grappled with power outages and shortages of food and water. Already at least 18 deaths in four states have been blamed on the hurricane as rescue crews using cadaver dogs and heavy equipment searched through collapsed homes in small towns such as Mexico Beach and Panama City for more victims. "If we lose only one life, to me that's going to be a miracle," Mexico Beach Mayor Al Cathey told local media.

  • Pope canonises murdered Salvadoran Archbishop and Pope who enshrined Church opposition to contraception

    Golocal247.com news

    Pope Francis has canonised Pope Paul VI and Salvadoran archbishop Oscar Romero, two of the most contested figures of the Catholic Church in the 20th century, who both had a powerful influence over his papacy.   In a ceremony on Sunday that drew more than 70,000 people to St Peter’s Square, Francis also presided over the canonisation of five other, including the German founder of a religious congregation, the Spanish founder of another order, two Italian priests and a teen-ager.   “All these saints, in different contexts, put today’s word into practice in their lives, without lukewarmness, without calculation, with the passion to risk everything and to leave it all behind,” Pope Francis said in his homily.   A Latin American icon, Archbishop Romero vocally opposed military oppression of El Salvador's right-wing government and was gunned down during Mass in a hospital chapel in March 1980.  He was remembered by Francis in his homily as a man who “left the security of the world, even his own safety, in order to give his life according to the Gospel, close to the poor and to his people, with a heart drawn to Jesus and his brothers and sisters.” Romero was shot dead by gunmen linked to right-wing death squads, a day after telling an army made up largely of peasants that they were killing their own people.  Paul VI guided the Church trough one of its most turbulent modern periods and was the first Pope who travelled abroad, starting a new tradition for his successors.  Faced with the issue of whether to change the Church’s longstanding opposition to artificial birth control, Paul VI issued his landmark encyclical Humanae Vitae in 1968, delivering a strong “no” to change and reaffirming the Church’s position on contraception.

  • British cyclist shot dead by hunter in French Alps

    Golocal247.com news

    A British mountain biker has been shot dead in the French Alps after he was mistaken for an animal by a local hunter. Marc Sutton, 34, originally from south Wales, died on Saturday evening after being struck by a single bullet while cycling in thick woods near the ski resort of Les Gets. The 22-year-old gunman, who has a firearms licence, was with a group of around 20 other hunters when the tragedy occurred. He had to be admitted to hospital after suffering from deep shock following the incident. Mr Sutton, a chef, had lived in the Alps for a number of years and owned and ran a restaurant with his girlfriend near the village of Morzine. Marc Sutton was a keen and experienced mountain biker  Credit: Facebook Amie Henderson, 38, a friend and neighbour of the of the couple told the Telegraph: “This is a very tight-knit expat community and we are all deeply shocked. There is anger too because every year there are hunting accidents.” Ms Henderson, who runs a local magazine for holidaymakers called Morzine Source, added: “Marc had a lot of friends in the area. We’ll all miss him.” Another local wrote on Facebook:  "This is absolutely devastating. Everyone in our community will be affected by last night’s accident. So very sad for Marc and everyone with him." Les Gets - locator map A source involved with the police investigation said: "He died instantly after being hit with a single bullet. The accident happened on Saturday evening in thick woods. The shooter went into deep shock when he realised what he had done." The source added: "He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton with his partner Jo Watts Credit: Facebook But local prosecutor for the Thonon-Les-Bains region said: "Couldn't be confused with game, as he had a coloured helmet and a coloured mountain bike", suggesting the weapon might have gone off accidentally. It is understood local police are treating the matter as aggravated manslaughter for which the gunman could be prosecuted and jailed. “He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton was shot dead on Saturday evening The Foreign Office said it was in contact with the local authorities and was ready to provide assistance to the man's family. It is the latest in a series of hunting accidents in which people have been killed or severely wounded. Last year a 59-year-old hiker was shot dead by a hunter in the Drôme and a 13-year-old boy died when he was accidentally shot by his grandfather. In 2017 a woman who had been sitting in her garden was killed after a stray hunter's bullet passeds through her garden hedge. In 2016, there were 18 fatal hunting accidents reported in France.

  • Maine faces consumer backlash after Senator Susan Collins backs Kavanaugh

    Golocal247.com news

    Businesses in Maine are facing a backlash after  Susan Collins, the state’s Republican senator, decided to back the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Two of Maine's biggest industries,  lobster fishing and tourism, are facing a consumer boycott following Ms Collins' key vote in the most hotly contested appointment to the Supreme Court since that of Clarence Thomas in 1991. The state's lobster industry is already reeling because of the punitive tariffs imposed by China as a result of the trade war launched by the Trump Administration. The Senate confirmed Mr Kavanaugh by 50 votes to 48 with Lisa Murkowski, another Republican, voting against his appointment but Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, backing President Trump’s nominee. Ms Collins had been one of the waverers as Mr Kavanaugh faced a wave of sexual misconduct allegations, which he angrily denied. His confirmation infuriated women's rights campaigners and the controversy has shown little sign of abating in the aftermath of the vote. A crowdfunding campaign has already raised $3 million for any Democrat who runs against Ms Collins in 2020. Brett Kavanaugh's appointment was confirmed by the Senate Credit: Andrew Hamik/AP The boycott campaign took off when John Fugelsang, a comedian and actor, took to Twitter to voice his disgust to his 413,000 followers. “Dear Susan Collins – I really struggled with this but my tourist $ just voted against ever visiting Maine while you remain in office,”  he tweeted. Mr Fugelsang has since said he was only joking, but already people have been voting with their wallets. They include John Tesar, the owner of six restaurants in Texas, who spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on Maine seafood every year. He said he will look elsewhere in order to encourage Maine’s fishermen to vote her out of office. Mark Murrll's lobster business is facing a boycott because of Susan Collin's business Credit: Mark Murrell/Portland Press Herald “My intention was not to harm the Maine fishing industry, but to encourage people to take a stand for what they believe in, especially come election day, to remove people who supported Kavanaugh, and subscribe to his treatment of women,’ he said. “Moving forward, I will educate myself on the source of the seafood we use in my restaurants and understand who is providing it and who they support politically, to make better decisions. Mark Murrell, who runs GetMaineLobster.com, is among the businesses which bore the brunt of those incensed by Ms Collins’ vote. “We had customers who have contacted us saying they are boycotting us because of her speech and vote,” said Mr Murrell. “Basically they want businesses like ours to hustle and vote her out. But she is not up for re-election until 2020. “But we have also had people from the other side who, after they read the story, contacted me and said they were going to order more.” Mr Murrell said he had written to Senator Collins following her decision. “I was not happy with the course she took.” The Telegraph approached Senator Collins’ office, which declined to comment.
