Five people were killed in a string of recent homicides in Stockton, California, this summer that the police chief confirmed on Friday are interconnected. A person of interest is sought in connection with the killings. However, police have not been able to determine whether the deaths are the work of one person or multiple people. "These incidents are occurring in the hours of darkness, these incidents are occurring where folks are alone by themselves, not in lit areas," Stockton's police Chief Stanley McFadden said. An $85,000 cash reward has been offered to anyone who can bring information that leads to an arrest in any of the investigations, police said.

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 3 'Tis the season to be jolly, and I'm not talking about Christmas. It's Fat Bear Week, a pure and wonderful treat for people who need a break from the harsh realities of life. The competition champions the brown bears of Katmai National Park and Preserve as they complete their transformations from scrawny to elephantine for hibernation. With the internet watching via live Bear Cams, the contestants go beast mode on the millions of sockeye salmon that run from Bristol Bay down the Brooks River.

(BPT) - Addiction is a disease that can be mentally and physically debilitating. If you or a loved one struggle with addiction, you know how dark it can be. Taking the next step and exploring rehab options can bring light into the darkness so you can fight — and ultimately win — the battle against addiction. Millions of people in the United States have a substance use disorder and are addicted to alcohol and/or drugs. Even though you feel alone in your struggles, it’s important to know many people have walked in your shoes and found hope to overcome addiction. “After finding the right rehab option, it’s time to prepare for the next steps.

LYMAN, Ukraine - The Ukrainian soldiers waved, hooted and raised their fists in triumph as they drove out of the strategic eastern city of Lyman on Monday, riding M113 armored personnel vehicles provided by Western countries. They passed eight corpses of enemy Russian soldiers who died trying to run from a Ukrainian counteroffensive that swept through the area and is still going, putting the lie to President Vladimir Putin's annexation claims. The bodies were bloated, and some had open mouths, as if still wearing an expression of shock. At the moment the Ukrainian troops were driving by, the dead Russians were being unceremoniously placed into black bags. Sitting atop a tank several yards away, Leonid, a soldier with Ukraine's National Guard, pondered Russia's plans to send more than 300,000 more men to Ukraine. "They're going to need a bigger grave," Leonid said. Just two days after Ukrainian troops claimed victory in Lyman, a city of 22,000 that the Russians had used as a … [Read more...] about Refuting annexation, Ukrainian forces push on from Lyman toward Luhansk
