As expected, Mariah Bell and Bradie Tennell finished on top of the women's short program at Skate America on Friday night. Kicking off an already truncated figure skating season in the first event of the Grand Prix series, Bell was smooth and solid in a program choreographed by 2018 Olympian Adam Rippon. Bell, whose sensational free skate at the national championships in January earned her a silver medal behind two-time champion Alysa Liu — who is too young to compete in senior internationals — was grateful for the opportunity to display her routine.

Turner also hit a solo homer in the first.Turner passed Steve Garvey earlier this month for most hits (now 75) in Dodgers post-season history and has the most RBIs (40).

An Edmonton man has been convicted of using his car as a weapon to assault three police officers. Everett White appeared remotely from the Red Deer Remand Centre on Friday for the final day of his trial at the Court of Queen's Bench in Edmonton. Initially charged on 25 counts, he was convicted of 14, including dangerous driving and weapons offences related to a pistol found at the scene. The charges stem from the night of Oct. 3, 2017 when a specialized police traffic unit received a call about possible drug activity in a quiet, remote neighbourhood in southwest Edmonton. The caller said there were cars parked on a dead-end residential street with a few people standing outside the vehicles. White claimed he and some friends went to the remote location to smoke cannabis after gambling at the nearby River Cree Casino. When police arrived White attempted to flee in his BMW, slamming into a cruiser before reversing into an unmarked police vehicle behind him. Five officers in three vehicles had planned their approach to prevent escape. A constable standing next to the driver's door had his foot run over. He fired seven hollow-point bullets at the driver, hitting White at least twice. White's neck was grazed and he suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery. An investigation by the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team later cleared the constable of any wrongdoing. At trial, defence lawyer Jake Chadi argued White's constitutional rights were violated during the arrest. White testified in January that he at first thought he was dealing with a hitman, not police. But Court of Queen's Bench Justice Kent Davidson said Friday he did not believe White's testimony, calling him an unreliable witness because he was admittedly high at the time. Davidson also found White's operation of the vehicle constituted assault with a weapon despite the defence's claim that he only intended to evade police. "That does not excuse unlawful conduct while in the pursuit of that object," he said, finding White guilty on three counts of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon. White was also found guilty on six weapons offences related to his Baby Desert Eagle pistol. Davidson said he was not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that White owned a sawed-off shotgun found in a duffel bag in the backseat of the car and found him not guilty of six related charges. White was initially charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Davidson said Friday those charges were dismissed during the trial at the behest of the Crown prosecutors. While the prosecution argued cash, guns, and multiple phones found in the car were tools of the drug trade, Davidson said there was little evidence any such transaction had occurred that night and acquitted White of a charge of currency and two charges related to the pistol as being obtained in the commission of an offence. Defence has requested a Gladue report, which details an Indigenous offender's personal and community history for the court, be prepared before sentencing. White is expected back in court on December 18th.
The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board is planning to significantly curb spending amid reports that its financial deficit could be as much as $8.8 million by the end of the school year. At a financial committee meeting Thursday evening, board administrator Stacey Zucker told trustees that the public board will not be receiving an anticipated $15.2 million in funding from the province due to the board’s declining enrolment. On top of that, Zucker said the board will also not be receiving an anticipated $700,000 typically drawn from school rental spaces, bringing the total reduction in revenue to roughly $15.9 million. “As you can tell, that’s a pretty significant number,” Zucker told trustees. The major revenue shortfall follows news from earlier this week that Hamilton’s public board will have roughly 1,700 fewer students enrolled in elementary schools than previously anticipated. The enrolment numbers affect the amount of funding the board receives from the province’s Grants for Student Needs (GSN) program, which typically offers money to boards for a variety of needs including special education, professional development for education, language programming, equipment and supplies, and more. In light of the declining numbers, the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) has planned to surplus roughly 33 teachers and curb spending across the board in an effort to balance the budget or, at best, reduce its deficit by the end of the fiscal year. A report presented at the board’s finance committee suggests the board can find savings by reducing teaching staff, self-contained classes, part-time educational assistants, school budgets, funding for governance and more. The board’s biggest opportunity for savings is by reducing teaching staff to the tune of $2.3 million, the report notes. It is also considering moving $6 million from its reserve funds to its annual budget to help reduce the deficit. “This is difficult work in an unprecedented time,” said board chair Alex Johnstone. “School boards in Hamilton have been placed in the most difficult position. We have the province telling the school boards to use their own funding, which we’ve done, and yet it’s still not enough.” At best, Zucker said, the 2020-21 budget would have a deficit of $2.8 million. Johnstone says the board needs to appeal to the province for more funding, which has granted some funding to school boards at greater risk of COVID-19 spread. “I’m very concerned about disparities across the province between boards who do have greater funding to access and those who don’t. There are boards that are receiving additional funds from the province, such as Toronto, York and Peel, because they’re considered to be in high-priority zones. And yet there are boards like ours who are also in a position where we’re experiencing significantly more community spread (of COVID-19) yet we’re not able to access additional funds, at least not to the same extent.” The board has scheduled a meeting for Oct. 26 to discuss appealing to the province for increased funding and to approve measures to dip into its reserve funds to help reduce the deficit. On Thursday, the board told families it was preparing an “extensive and complex” staffing reorganization that will bump 33 teachers from part-time to the supply list. The number of teachers surplused was initially going to be roughly 190, but the board’s decision to access its reserve funds to cover the costs of smaller classrooms and teachers helped bring that number down to 33, said Johnstone. “A typical year may see a small variation between projected and actual enrolment. This year, with more families keeping children out of school, our fall enrolment is significantly below our spring projections,” the board wrote. In total, the board is short 1,756 students, many of whom are kindergarten age and whose families have opted to home-school them rather than enrol them in virtual or in-person education offered through the HWDBS, Zucker said. Now, some elementary classes will have to converge with each other while educators are moved to different classes or schools. Jeff Sorensen, president of the public board’s elementary teachers’ union, says the teachers have been learning, as early as Thursday morning, that they’re no longer going to have the job they’ve been doing since September.

An Ohio priest respected as a “religious and community leader” has been sex trafficking vulnerable minors and adults for more than two decades, the Department of Justice announced in an indictment unsealed Friday.A grand jury has charged Rev. Michael J. Zacharias, age 53, with sex trafficking minors and sex trafficking both minors and adults by force, 10 counts in all. Federal authorities arrested Zacharias on August 18 and have kept him in custody since. He taught at St. Michael’s Parish in Findlay, Ohio.“Michael Zacharias used his respected position to prey on and take advantage of youth and adults for his own sexual gratification,” said Brian Russ, the FBI special agent in charge of the investigation.One victim, whose identity was not disclosed, said Zacharias began grooming him while still a seminarian in 1999, according to court documents. The victim was then 12, still in the sixth grade, and Zacharias allegedly abused him throughout his teen and adult years. Zacharias allegedly paid the victim for oral sex, and the victim returned to the priest many times to feed a dependency on painkillers. The victim said his drug addiction stemmed in part from feelings of self-loathing and questions about his sexuality brought on by the abuse he suffered at Zacharias’ hands.A second victim described a similar pattern: he was home sick from opioid withdrawal in ninth grade when Zacharias allegedly visited and paid him for oral sex. The victim used the money to acquire more drugs. The victim told the FBI he was afraid to report the abuse because of the optics of a young drug addict accusing a respected priest of sexual abuse.In yet another instance laid out in court documents, Zacharias allegedly groomed the underage sibling of one of his victims and paid the sibling so as to be able to abuse him.Zacharias allegedly filmed himself molesting one victim and recorded himself confessing to the sexual acts. According to the affidavit, Zacharias says in one clip, “My name is Michael Zacharias. I first met [Victim 1] when he was in 6th grade at St. Catherine’s and I was a Seminarian. I knew from the first time I saw him that I wanted to suck his dick.”Zacharias goes on to describe staring at the victim’s buttocks while the two were alone together in a hospital room, according to the affidavit. The boy was sick with meningitis.“I always loved [Victim 1]. I got to know him over the years. I knew that he was, that his dad was out of the picture, and I started grooming him,” Zacharias allegedly said.Text messages between the two depict Zacharias as deriving sexual pleasure from a reversal of the power dynamic between the two, with the victim recording and keeping video of Zacharias performing sexual acts and confessing to abusing him. The priest allegedly paid the victim to make the videos and demonstrate that he had never erased them so as to maintain leverage over Zacharias.“The great thing for you is that I actually paid you to make the videos and that you will one day ruin me with them and get rich. You are such a stud!!” Zacharias allegedly texted.Zacharias’ years of alleged abuse apparently only came to light after the unnamed victim was arrested in July in an unrelated case in which investigators examined his text messages. After his arrest, Zacharias told him to delete the videos, as he suspected they would get him into trouble. The victim turned the videos over to law enforcement instead.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
