The White House said Friday night in response to an online petition to free a U.S. Marine jailed since March in Mexico, that Secretary of State John Kerry had spoken to Mexican officials “at the highest level” and authorities there had been “very willing to engage on the issue.”

However, there was no indication of tangible progress in obtaining the release of 26-year-old Andrew Tahmooressi, who has been in custody since he accidentally drove into the country with three legally purchased firearms after he made a wrong turn.

Robinson could be giving ground to Bailey
Friday, 29 August 2014 20:40

Patrick Robinson appeared to have the starting cornerback position opposite Keenan Lewis sewn up a few weeks ago.

That might not have changed during Thursday’s 22-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the preseason finale, but Robinson also failed to hammer down his point and keep Champ Bailey at bay.

Robinson was routinely picked on by Ravens backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor during his 19 snaps on the field. Some of the issues, though, were not entirely of his own doing.

Some people know the Charbonnet-Labat Funeral Home for its antique horse-drawn hearse or sometimes unique presentations of the dead, such as “Uncle” Lionel Batiste, the Treme Brass Band bass drummer, whose embalmed corpse was propped up next to a prop streetlight by the staff at the Treme institution.

But at least one man thought of the 131-year-old funeral home as a place to find a stash of quick cash, electronics and a guaranteed — if totally conspicuous — getaway car in the dead of night.

Reining in New Orleans’ murder rate has been a priority for Mayor Mitch Landrieu, and as good news has been historically elusive on this front, city officials were pleased Friday to announce a slight decrease in killings through the first half of 2014 compared with last year.

In promoting a murder reduction strategy known as NOLA for Life, the Landrieu administration has, at times, seemed obsessed with finishing the year with fewer murders than the 156 recorded in 2013 — a tally that marked a 20 percent decline from the year before and was the lowest figure the city has seen since 1985.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Beaten-down U.S. coal company stocks may receive a lift in coming weeks if deteriorating relations between Russia and the West push President Vladimir Putin to shut off Europe’s natural gas supply.

The crisis in eastern Ukraine has emboldened Europe and the United States to impose broad sanctions on Russia. But Europe finds itself in a precarious position, with almost a third of the natural gas the continent consumed in 2013 flowing from Russia, according to the U.S.

NEWPORT R.I. (Reuters) - Obama, raising money for Democratic candidates as Republicans aim to take over the Senate in the fall, on Friday blamed some Republicans for a calculated effort to undermine faith in government by opposing policy compromises.

"There has been a certain cynical genius to what some of these folks have done," Obama said at the second of three fundraisers he attended.

"What they’ve realized is, if we don’t get anything done, then people are going to get cynical about government and its possibilities of doing good for everybody," he said in Purchase, New York.
