Keeper and veterinary staffs kept close watch on the calf and protected the privacy of mom and […]

    Inauguration Day: Trump’s historic moment arrives

    By Stephen Collinson, CNN WASHINGTON — Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States Friday during a time-honored inauguration ceremony that encapsulated the peaceful transfer of power that is a hallmark of American democracy.

    The hiccups and potential catastrophes of Donald Trump’s Inauguration

    By Avi Asher-Schapiro Outside Washington, D.C.’s Union Station on Thursday morning, late commuters mingled with visitors to the nation’s capital as private vendors hawked unlicensed Trump merchandise to arriving inauguration attendees. Business, at least at that hour, was not brisk: Many passersby—arriving off trains from the Northeast Corridor and likely in town for planned anti-Trump protests—stopped for photos with the lone Bernie Sanders supporter outside the station, holding a styrofoam board clustered with buttons from a bygone primary. By Thursday […]

The property she’s seeking will serve as a base for activists throughout Trump’s presidency, where organizers will meet, hold trainings, and possibly stay overnight while in town.

    Thousands of Skittles intended for cattle feed spill on Wisconsin highway

    DODGE COUNTY, Wis. – This story starts out about Skittles — but ends up being about cows! The well-known candy was spilled all over County Highway S near Blackbird Road. They were discovered shortly before 9:00 p.m. No one knew where the candy came from or where it was going, but county road crews said the Skittles spill was actually helpful, as the roads in the area have been icy and the thousands of little candies improved traction. So that’s one […]
