New York man arrested in death of Lake Charles casino guard

NEW YORK (AP) A New York state man has been arrested in connection with the death of a guard at a Las Vegas casino.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Friday that 32-year-old Kevin Boggs was arrested Thursday night in Lake Charles, Louisiana, after police found the body of 37-year old Gary Soto in the water.

Boggs had been missing since early Monday.

Authorities had not released his name.

Borrowing the name of his wife’s boyfriend, police said they found Soto’s body Sunday in the St. Bernard Parish Wildlife Area near the resort town of Casa Grande, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of New Orleans.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Soto had been working at the Crown Casino, which closed in 2016 amid a $20 million casino fraud scandal, when Bogg soured on him, authorities said.

He left his job in March to work for a contractor that installs and maintains the casino.

When a hurricane turns a lake into a pool: ‘This is what happens when you build something’

A decade ago, Florida was still a sleepy and pristine paradise.

Its beaches, tropical vegetation, and crystal clear water made it an easy choice for the nation’s top surfers and vacationers.

But in the past decade, the state’s beaches have become a magnet for hurricanes and floods.

Lakeland, the third largest city in the state, was hit hard by Hurricane Irma, the worst storm to hit Florida since Tropical Storm Wilma in 2005.

Floodwaters reached the city’s Lakeland Beach, inundating the lakefront with up to 10 feet of water, causing the collapse of the surrounding houses.

In a matter of hours, residents were scrambling to evacuate.

Many were forced to build makeshift rafts and walk across the water, to save their homes.

Others, like Chris Houser, made their own rafts out of plastic sheeting and water bottles.

Houser had already been using a makeshift raft in Lakeland in anticipation of the storm.

But after a few days, he started to see the problem.

“We saw the lake was becoming very shallow, we were seeing more and more of the water coming down and the water was starting to come down the sides of the boat,” he told The Wall St. Journal.

“We were having to go out on the beach to get a bit of shade.”

Housers family and friends began to notice the boat’s lack of water when they began to see flooding along the lake.

While Housers and his friends did have a makeshift boat, it was too shallow for them to paddle on.

So they decided to make their own.

When he saw his friends, Housesters daughter, Emma, was worried about the safety of her brother, Chris, who was taking the water out of the rafts he had made.

But Housler reassured her that he had been practicing his rafts, and that they were in good shape.

“I told her, ‘You’re going to be okay,’ ” he recalled.

So when Hurricane Irma hit Lakeland, it knocked out the water supply to Lakeland and caused widespread flooding in the city.

The storm hit at 11 p.m. on Saturday, September 25, 2017, and the first thing Housier noticed was the water level on the water’s edge.

“It was pretty high,” he said.

About five minutes later, the lake turned to a pool.

By the time he returned to his house, the water had started to drain away.

“I went back into my house, and all the lights were out,” he recalled, “and I thought, ‘Oh my God, we’re going down.'”

Housier, who lives in Lakeville, had been out on his own since the storm hit.

When he awoke, he found his family was in a pool of water in their backyard.

“That was the first time I actually went out on my own,” he recounted.

Houses father, Eric, had just finished his job and was waiting for the boat to be towed away.

“Then the boat was gone, and I was out in the open, I went down, and a friend said, ‘Chris, I think your brother is in the water,'” Housinger recalled.

“He said, “‘Yeah, but he’s not dead.’

“When Housie heard that, he was like, ‘I don’t think so, I hope he’s OK, but we’ve gotta go.'”

Houses were destroyed, vehicles overturned, and businesses and homes were inundated.

Housist, who owns a furniture store, lost all of his furniture and had to rebuild it from the ground up.

But he said he had a lot of time to salvage the things he could.

“All the little things that were left were salvageable,” he explained.

“The little things I had that were gone, I put them in my backyard, and it was the best I could do.”

In the end, the family made do with only their personal belongings, like clothes and a pair of boots.

“We did what we had to do, we couldn’t afford to get all of our stuff,” Houserman said.

“So I just made it up to the roof and tried to get out of there as quickly as possible.”

The storm was not the only thing to hit the state.

Hurricane Wilma, which devastated Puerto Rico in 2018, also hit Lakeville.

The storm knocked out all the water in the lake and caused massive flooding in nearby communities.

“It’s really sad,” Hulser said.

“‘Cause there’s a lot to be grateful for.”

Lake City, Colorado, will be the next major American city to ban fracking

Lake City has decided to ban hydraulic fracturing, a controversial practice that uses water to force rocks underground to release toxic chemicals.

The city council voted unanimously Monday to enact the measure following a citywide hearing that drew a crowd of nearly 300 people.

The move comes amid a national debate over fracking, which uses high-pressure water, sand and chemicals to extract oil and gas.

Lake City is just one of more than a dozen municipalities that have made similar decisions in recent years.

Critics say the practice is damaging the environment and causes earthquakes and wastewater spills.

At least 25 states have banned fracking, including California, where residents overwhelmingly voted to ban it in 2014.

Lake City, which is a major hub for the nation’s oil and natural gas industry, was not among them.

It is one of only four U.S. cities with a moratorium on fracking.

A number of other states have passed similar measures in recent months, including Texas, which passed a law last week that bans fracking on public lands and waters.

Fellow Republican state Sen. Jim Renacci of West Virginia, the chair of the Senate Environmental Protection and Energy Committee, called the vote a “big victory” for the state.

“Lake City’s decision will have an impact on the rest of the nation,” he said in a statement.

We are very pleased with this action by the residents of Lake City and look forward to continuing to work with other states to make this work.”

Why do many lakes in Lake Ontario have a yellow color?

The water colour of lakes and ponds in Ontario, especially the Lake Ontario watershed, is largely the result of chemicals used in the production of fertilizers.

But that is changing as more people move into the province.

As of August, there were more than 2.4 million people living in Ontario with health problems related to the chemicals used to make fertilizers, according to a government study.

About 80 per cent of those people live in Ontario.

About 70 per cent live in the Toronto area, with the rest in the GTA, according the Ontario Ministry of Health.

There is also a trend to make the water darker, which is more likely to lead to algae growth and other issues.

“There’s been a big change in the way that we use the water,” said Bruce Gough, a professor of environmental engineering at the University of Guelph and former president of the Canadian Association of University Teachers.

“We’ve started to use it more in a chemical way.

We’ve been able to control the amount of nitrogen and phosphorus, but we’re using it more for industrial processes.”

In fact, Gough said the Ontario government has decided to make it a priority to make sure all of its lakes have a certain amount of light and a certain number of nutrients in them.

“We’re not going to do it without some sort of oversight,” he said.

“So, if we have a problem with the water, we need to get to the root of the problem, and that’s what this study is trying to do.”

In the meantime, people with health issues in Ontario are finding ways to use the lakes in their own way.

In Toronto, people are making the lakes white by mixing fertilizers with their water and then adding it to their own drinking water.

In Kingston, the city is taking a more cautious approach to adding more nutrients to the lake.

“It’s a bit of a change of pace from what we’ve been doing,” said Ken McBride, who owns the Toronto’s famous Morningside Cafe.

“People are actually using the water more like a water treatment plant.”

Some are even using chemicals in the water to treat themselves, which has lead to some health concerns.

“I was doing some home water treatment with the tap and it came out green, which was kind of scary,” said Kelly Stoll, who has had a couple of problems with algae.

“I’m really worried that we’ll be looking at more of these issues, because there are a lot of people who have health problems, and there are also a lot who are concerned about their health.”

The government’s latest report says about 20 per cent to 25 per cent are now using the chemical-based fertilizers to treat their own water, which could be causing a higher risk of some types of algae growth.

Some are also using them to wash their own bodies, which also has raised concern about potential health issues.

While some experts are cautious, others are not.

“People should do what they can to take the extra precautions and use less fertilizers,” said Dr. Michael O’Neil, the former president and CEO of the Ontario Science Council, who now works for the Ontario Medical Association.

“But I also think it’s important that we understand what the health effects are of these chemicals.”

In a recent interview with The Globe and Mail, O’Neill said there are no definitive answers to what causes some of the health problems in Ontario and there is still a lot more work to do.

“The problem is that we have very little data on what causes these health issues,” he added.

“What we do know is that there are more and more people with some of these health problems.”

The Saguaro Lake Incident: An Unconventional History


— A man is suing a state official after an altercation involving a sheriff’s deputy and an Arizona sheriff’s dog in which the deputy allegedly beat the dog, then fled.

The lawsuit filed Monday in state District Court in Arizona alleges the deputy, whose name is not being released, was negligent in his duties and failed to prevent the dog from being assaulted and injured.

The sheriff’s office says the incident occurred Feb. 24, the same day the dog was injured by an unlicensed officer.

The complaint, filed by Arizona’s public defender’s office, says the dog has a “serious injury to his skull and spine” and is unable to walk properly.

The dog was transported to a veterinarian and then returned to the department to be examined.

A deputy who responded to the scene said the dog had suffered multiple head injuries.

The deputy who returned to investigate the dog’s injuries reported the dog to a supervisor and said the deputy said, “We’re going to have to euthanize this animal,” the lawsuit says.

The incident has been under investigation by the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

‘This Is A Nightmare’: What you need to know about the latest ‘Nightmare’ story

A woman has described the nightmarish situation she experienced as she was forced to flee her home after an intruder smashed through the front door and into her family’s Lake Tahoe home.

The Lake Tahoes mother and daughter were sleeping when the intruder broke into the house at about 9pm on January 19, 2017.

The intruder then tried to force their way in through the window and then smashed through a glass pane, causing severe damage to the house and the front entrance.

“The windows were shattered and the glass was all smashed into the front and back doors,” Ms Naylor said.

“I could hear screaming coming from the kitchen and I thought that the front of the house had just been smashed in.”

The intruder left the house through a window in the front room, but the Lake Taho woman was unable to see the intruder.

“He went upstairs and then he came back downstairs, and I could see him going through the door, and then there was just so much blood coming out of the kitchen, and there was blood all over the front.”

Ms Nathan said the front window was smashed, and the woman’s daughter was left bleeding on the floor of the living room.

The woman said she screamed for her daughter to come out, but no one answered.

“My daughter came out and there were all these bruises all over her body, and she was just lying on the bed, and her eyes were bloodshot and they were bleeding, and they just kept saying ‘Please come out’, and she said ‘No, please come out’,” Ms Nason said.

She said she heard a loud bang, and thought that someone had tried to jump the fence and that it was just an intruder breaking through.

The Lake City woman said the intruder then smashed the front windows and the rear door, causing extensive damage. “

But he just didn’t see us because he was just coming down the driveway and just smashing through the windows and stuff like that.”

The Lake City woman said the intruder then smashed the front windows and the rear door, causing extensive damage.

The female resident said she thought the house was on fire, and feared the worst.

“There were flames everywhere, and we were trying to make sure everything was safe, and just hoping to make it out alive,” Ms Nelson said.

The injured woman had to be taken to hospital, where she was later discharged.

The man was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary, attempted aggravated burglary and assault with a dangerous weapon.

“It’s very unfortunate, but this is a nightmare,” Lake Tahoma County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Murchison said.

He said the male intruder was described as a thin, thin man in his 30s.

“This is an unusual situation,” Mr Murchion said.

A spokeswoman for the Lake City Sheriff’s Office said she did not know if the woman was one of the injured.

“At this time, we do not have any further information on this incident,” the spokeswoman said.
