Gumuchian; Editing by Mark Heinrich) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed By Scott Malone WASHINGTON – Anger over the weekend massacre of 11 people at a Pennsylvania synagogue spilled onto the US campaign trail with just over a week to go before elections that will determine control of Congress The shooting which prosecutors said was a hate crime carried out by a gunman who said he wanted to kill Jewish people followed a wave of more than a dozen package bombs that were sent to prominent critics of President Donald Trump last week and was widely seen as showing a rising level of rage and violence in US politics While elected leaders from both parties voiced sympathy for the victims and denounced violence the incidents did little to cool the tone of campaigns that will determine whether Trump’s Republican Party keeps control of both houses of Congress in the Nov 6 elections Democrats would need a net gain of 23 seats in the House of Representatives and two in the Senate to take majorities that would allow them to more effectively oppose Trump’s agenda Nonpartisan forecasters and opinion polls generally give them a good chance of winning the House with Republicans widely expected to keep control of the Senate Following the pattern of mass shootings that have become a recurrent feature over American life over the past few years Saturday’s massacre in Pittsburgh inflamed the nation’s long-running debate on gun rights with Trump suggesting that armed guards could have prevented the killing "No Mr President the synagogue is not at fault for being insufficiently armed" Scott Wallace a Democrat running for Congress in eastern Pennsylvania said in a weekend statement "To say that the solution to gun violence is more guns is like saying that the solution to lung cancer is more cigarettes" US Representative Keith Rothfus a western Pennsylvania Republican stayed away from the gun rights issue while condemning the prejudice that allegedly motivated the attack "You look at what this particular shooter was doing the vile comments that he had put out there on social media the anti-Semitic hatred that he was spewing forth" Rothfus said in a Monday interview on Fox News "Somebody was aware of the animus" Reactions to mass shootings often divide along roughly party lines Broadly Democrats favor more controls on gun ownership as a way of reducing gun violence while Republicans push back against efforts to introduce tighter gun controls noting that the Second Amendment of the US Constitution protects the right to bear arms Liberal protesters who crashed a Tennessee rally on Sunday for Republican US Representative Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign drew her criticism for repeatedly trying to shout her down including during a moment of silence intended to remember those killed at the synagogue "It is a sad day when Phil Bredesen’s party will go as far as interrupting a moment of silence for the victims of Pittsburgh in order to protest" Blackburn said on Twitter referring to her Democratic rival a former governor of the state "There is no excuse to choose confrontation ambush attack or any form of violence to deal with differences of opinion" TRUMP’S BARBS The violence did not bring a return to civility with Trump weighing in on Monday on the Florida governor’s race where he has endorsed former US Representative Ron DeSantis over Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum In a tweet Trump called Gillum "a thief" and said Tallahassee is "one of the most corrupt cities in the Country" Florida media have reported that the FBI is investigating Tallahassee’s government Gillum has said he is not the probe’s target FBI officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment Gillum said on Monday said the name-calling is leading to violence ? smacked of hypocrisy because the US intelligence network by the end of 1980s was well aware of the progress Pakistan had

pmFargo police Lt Joel Vettel said Friday that police were still investigating the time of death“There are a number of reasons why he’d be there” Vettel said “It certainly isn’t an area where people typically pass over just to cross on the railroad tracks so chances are there was another ulterior motive for him to be there at the time of the incident”It had not been determined whether drugs or alcohol were involved"This whole wall will be original brick" Horak said eyeing a broad expanse of plaster She walked a little further and looked up at a separate bare-brick wall "The front is really cool you can actually see up here in the rafters where the original signage was that they painted on that building"Horak is an owner of downtown businesses like Brick and Barley Level 10 Lounge and O’Really’s Irish Pub Her in-laws purchased the building– the same structure that houses Kittsona’s creative studio—and now they’re redeveloping the second floor to house office space Horak says a tenant could move in as soon as this summerThe development falls within Grand Forks’ renaissance zone—part of the city where things like renovations construction and purchases earn state and local tax exemptions—and Horak said it’s saving thousands of dollars off the cost of the project"It’s huge" Sarah Horak said "Being small business owners being able to save that kind of money makes it more manageable to do the project"The Horaks’ project is the most recent of 50 in Grand Forks that have used the more than 30-block zone since it was first instituted in 2001 It’s poised to become an even bigger part of the downtown conversation too with a broad swath of the original zone poised to expire in FebruaryGrand Forks City leaders are expected to take up the issue in coming weeks with city staff recommending the renewal and expansion of the district to seven new city blocks including four near Kittson Avenue two on the eastern side of the intersection of North Washington Street and University Avenue and one on the corner of Gertrude Avenue and South Third Street"It’s important to encourage what’s left of the infill development after the flood" said City Planner Andrea Edwardson "It’s just another option out there to reinvest in downtown and give owners the opportunity to do something they might otherwise not do without the benefits"Playing catch-upGrand Forks’ zone which includes the downtown area and a portion of commercial properties on South Washington Street has helped pay for a number of projectsDevelopments include renovations to the building that now houses Rhombus Guys Brewing Company at 116 S Third St; remodeling at Dakota Harvest Bakers 6 S Third St; and helped discount residents’ purchase of units at Elite Brownstones near the corner of Third Street and Second Avenue North But at 50 projects processed—27 of which represent a slew of residential purchases of individual Elite Brownstone condos—it’s been used less than in other parts of the state In Minot which formed its zone the same year 87 projects have been completed a city official said and in Fargo another city planner said more than 240 projects have been completed since 1999Deputy City Planner Ryan Brooks said the reason Grand Forks’ number is behind other cities is tied to the late 1990s flood that devastated the downtown area With so many new buildings springing up in the years following the flood the new renaissance zone came upon a downtown area that had far less need for renovations to existing buildingsGrand Forks he said is just now reaching the point when a renaissance zone can really start to make contributions to the area"We’re getting to the phase of downtown where there’s starting to be more interest in that" Brooks said "I think we’re at a point now where the renaissance zone is ready for a lot more involvement in Grand Forks again"Besides the seven new city blocks city staff are recommending a few tweaks to the way tax breaks work in the zoneFor example property purchases in the area can translate into tax breaks That’s not necessary City Planner Andrea Edwardson said because movement in the real estate market is high enough that it doesn’t need to be incentivizedIt’s further complicated by the fact that renaissance zone tax breaks often can only be applied to a property once she said—so if a simple purchase gets incentivized later investment to renovate the building won’tAccording to Grand Forks city documents city staff are also recommending the city increase available tax breaks for new construction and renovation projects The city currently offers an up to 50 percent break on city property tax on new construction which slowly declines over the course of five years; a city staff report has suggested bringing those numbers up to 100 percent for the full five years"It’s important to look at a plan every so often and see how it’s aligning to current market conditions in the community" Edwardson said "We already have purchases happening . there’s opportunities with new construction"Around the stateAs discussion about the zone works its way towards review by city leaders City Council Member Jeannie Mock said she’s sure the members will have their sights set on other cities around North Dakota"Once that comes back for an actual vote and approval I think that would be the thing we would probably watch the most and discuss the most" she saidOfficials around the state say their zones are an integral part of their cities’ development In Minot Assistant City Planner Sybil Tetteh said her city’s renaissance zone has been a boon for people looking to rebuild after the 2011 flood that devastated the area"It has played a huge role in our downtown redevelopment" she said "It has also helped a lot with our housing needs It gets developers and property owners to really invest in their homes"In Fargo City Planner Joe Nigg said the city just updated its renaissance zone this year boosting the requirement for the minimum investment to trigger a tax break and shifting the borders of the zone"It’s been an extremely successful plan in Fargo" Nigg said "Certainly a substantial amount of investment has been processed through that program Downtown Fargo has come a long ways in the last 15 years and the renaissance zone has played an important role in that transformation"Mock said that she’s still doing research on the matter"There’s plenty of policy to still look into and I’m not sure where I am on those types of things That’ll take more time and evaluation" she said "But generally speaking I’m always in favor of improving areas of the city"For Horak who serves as treasurer of Grand Forks’ Downtown Development Association just getting another tenant on North Third Street is a big deal"Being able to create another usable space in downtown when there really isn’t any vacancy of this size is huge" she said "To create another space downtown that’s usable is a really big deal" a 24-year-old Kazakh citizen,

start next week and he doesn’t know how he will get there He’s starting to think since the chemo may not work anyway it’s not worth the stressGraham has struggled to find rides to his appointments since June when a temporary program funded by the VA and run by Volunteers of America North Louisiana ended For the last two years the program picked up a handful of veterans at a time from all across rural Texas Arkansas and Louisiana and shuttled them in a van to medical appointments Demand was high and now the veterans are calling Congress to let them know they want it back"Everything was going along perfectly" Graham said "It was like the answer to my prayers And then I found out they were ending it I was devastated"While long drives and limited access to health care are familiar burdens for many rural residents the problem is particularly acute for veterans in those areas They are far older than other rural residents and far more likely to be disabled meaning more of them are in need of medical care And there are a lot of them — one in four veterans lives in rural areas compared to one in five adults in the general population according to 2015 census dataFor decades officials who work with veterans have sympathized with rural residents like Graham but have had little to offer Now by testing new ideas through pilot programs like the van rides provided by Volunteers of America North Louisiana the VA is developing models and spreading them across the country to get more rural veterans the health care they needJust 20 miles from where the dirt road to Graham’s driveway begins in Texarkana there’s a VA outpatient clinic But the clinic doesn’t provide chemotherapy It like many local clinics for veterans provides basic physical and mental health care but not emergency care or some specialized services While there is a general lack of doctors and hospitals in rural areas the situation is even worse for veterans who rely on the VA said John Hoellwarth a spokesperson for American Veterans the nation’s largest veterans’ organization In recent years the VA has set up more community-based clinics and the Obama administration created a program called Choice that allows non-VA clinicians to serve rural veterans and receive reimbursement from the VA But the problem persistsMany rural veterans rely on a combination of VA health insurance and other forms of insurance such as private insurance Medicaid (the joint federal-state health insurance program for the poor and disabled) or Medicare (federal health program for the elderly) according to census data The number of veterans enrolled in Medicaid increased by about 340000 under the Affordable Care Act according to an analysis by Families USA a nonprofit that advocates for high-quality affordable health careFor veterans in rural areas "Medicaid could mean the difference between them getting care and them not getting care" said Andrea Callow Families USA associate director of Medicaid initiativesTo improve care for rural veterans the VA needs to expand both the services it provides and the services it pays others to provide said Margaret Puccinelli chairwoman of the Veterans Rural Health Advisory Committee which makes recommendations to Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin"Because of the geographic isolation for many vets that are eligible you have to approach it as creatively as possible" Puccinelli saidThe US House of Representatives voted last month to fund the Choice program for another six months which would allow lawmakers more time to agree on changes to the program The bill now goes to the Senate The program which is open to veterans who live more than 40 miles from a VA clinic or hospital or who face long wait times has been plagued with problems from the start including difficulty for veterans trying to make appointments and long wait times for reimbursementThe Volunteers of America North Louisiana program was one of five to receive $2 million from 2014 to 2016 from the VA Office of Rural Health which develops models for care that can be replicated nationwideThe idea of shuttling veterans to and from their appointments is not new The VA has had a transportation program for decades under which Disabled American Veterans donates vans to the VA that volunteers use to take veterans to medical appointmentsBut the Volunteers of America North Louisiana program was different: It used paid drivers picked rural veterans up at their homes and transported veterans in wheelchairs which the other program does not doGraham tried using the Disabled American Veterans program in his area But the pickup location is in Texarkana and Graham said rides weren’t available at the times he needed themVolunteers of America North Louisiana knew there was a need but it was overwhelmed by the response said Gary Jaynes the organization’s director of veteran services In the two years the program was running it provided 2229 rides to veterans logging nearly 300000 miles and saving veterans nearly $400000 in travel expenditures Jaynes saidMost of the Office of Rural Health’s $250 million budget for programs goes to rolling out promising models in local VA clinics A few approaches that have stuck include using home-based rehabilitation for veterans who have heart attacks and using telehealth for patients with HIV or multiple sclerosisLike Volunteers of America North Louisiana the Nebraska Association of Local Health Directors received a $2 million grant The Nebraska nonprofit used its money to place 10 coordinators in local health departments to spread the word about services available to veterans and teach health workers how to find veterans in need of help The Nebraska program ended up referring about 600 veterans to services in and out of the VA and created a statewide network of people working toward the same purpose said Teri Clark the project’s director"We didn’t reach just a couple veterans" Clark said "Instead we changed the system"On the way to the VA just before crossing into Louisiana Graham gets the hiccups His cancer exhausts him and makes it hard for him to digest food He rubs his chest recalling a time he had to drive himself home from chemotherapy"I got the cold sweats" he said as Texas ranches flew by outside the car window "I got sick as soon as I pulled up in the yard"The VA knows that providing telehealth to rural veterans makes many long trips unnecessary Telehealth makes veterans healthier reducing hospital admissions by 35 percent and saves them money — about $2000 per patient each year according to a 2014 VA studyIn addition to driving veterans to appointments the Volunteers of America bought a telehealth van equipped with communications equipment and broadband internet which is used to see patients across state linesGraham now feels too sick and tired to work but he used to be a chef He cooked at the convention center and a cafe in Shreveport Then he was kitchen manager at a seafood restaurant in Texarkana He laughs remembering all the energy he had at opening day in 2013 as he ran around trying to feed a hundred guests at once with food orders stuffed in his shirt pocketA couple years later he was raking leaves and he got dizzy When he got to the hospital they found his cancer He quit his job sold his truck and signed up for MedicaidOn his rides with Volunteers of America North Louisiana Graham bonded with his drivers and fellow riders Veterans appreciated the program so much that they started calling their representatives in Congress Now clinic officials plan to meet with Jaynes and congressmen to discuss ways to keep the services in operationThomas Klobucar acting director of the Office of Rural Health said his office is still evaluating the results of the Volunteers of America North Louisiana program and will report to Congress by October on its findingsStory by Jen Fifield / StatelineorgThe commercial city of Onitsha boils as violent protest sparked off on Thursday over the killing of a commercial bus driver whose name was identified as Edwin by a policeman who demanded fifty naira bribe from the conductor According to the conductor of the bus Samuel Ekwueme who was spotted at the scene of the incident the police at Anambra State Broadcasting Service (ABS) Awka Road Onitsha junction check point had stopped the Coaster bus driver with registration number AA 763 AHB and asked for N50 tip but instead the driver gave him 20 naira The Hausa policeman was not satisfied and insisted on being given 50 naira but was told by the driver that they just came out and that they should be given time to work in order to settle them accordingly The conductor who was crying uncontrollably said: “The policemen insisted that we must give them N50 before we move The driver after pleading with the unyielding policemen drove off and one of them entered a commercial motorcycle and accosted us at Anionwu Street by New Market Road Onitsha where he shot the driver through the bus window and ordered the commercial motorcyclist carrying him to move for him to escape” The incident led to the explosion of the already piled up anger of the people of Onitsha and the easily broken peace in the state who have lost nearly over 40 people since the Boko Haram insurgence Hence residents of Onitsha took to the streets in protest of the killing of the bus driver who they said was a member of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) It was revealed that over four people sustained bullet wounds while others in an attempt to escape as a result of the accident that occurred due to the shooting sustained serious injuriesThe Protests… The incident generated into a serious protest when angry mob comprising of drivers and commercial motorcyclist popularly known as ‘okada riders’ stormed the streets with the corpse of the driver for possible attack on Hausa people in the state The situation almost got escalated when angry mob descended on the police team earlier sent by the Anambra State Commissioner of Police Mr Muhtari Ibrahim to come and appeal to the angry crowd as the team was almost mobbed However the MASSOB Director of Information Mr Uchenna Madu pleaded with the aggrieved protesters that their leader Chief Ralph Uwazurike was against any form of reprisal The Onitsha Police acting Area Commander Mr Roland Omatoje and the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Central Police Station Onitsha Mr Abdul managed to escape from the hands of the angry mob that descended on them at the point of this intervention Confirming the incident One of the passengers who gave her name as Ifeoma Obi explained that“the deceased did not do anything that warranted his killing adding it was just sheer wickedness on the side of the policeman who because of just N50 wasted this young man’s life” She also said that the policeman first demobilized the bus by shooting at the tires of the vehicle and a situation she said helped the culprit to shoot at the deceased from the window on closed range Meanwhile MASSOB leader Chief Ralph Uwazurike advised his members not to harm any Hausa man but should take to pieces every police check point within the zone hence forth Uwazurike who spoke through his director of information Mr Uchenna Madu said dismantling of all police check point has became vital at a time when the security of Ndigbo was no longer safe even in their land The state Commissioner of Police Mr Muhtari Ibrahim had confirmed the arrest of the killer policeman who will soon face trial and prosecution He however appealed to the rampaging mob to calm down as all hands are on deck to resolve the problem twitter“In these situations it’s very dynamic and it’s sad The drop shot
