Ken Ritter Associated Press Published 3:44 p.m. UTC Aug 9, 2018 Las Vegas – A Nevada death-row inmate whose execution has been postponed twice said a legal fight over his fate is taking a tortuous toll on him and his family and he just wants his sentence carried out. The state should “just get it done, just do it effectively and stop fighting about it,” Scott Raymond Dozier told The Associated Press. “I want to be really clear about this. This is my wish,” Dozier said in a brief telephone call from Ely State Prison. “They should stop punishing me and my family for their inability to carry out the execution.” Dozier’s comments Wednesday came a month after a judge in Las Vegas postponed his execution at nearly the final hour.

This is part of a series breaking down all the terms you need to know if you're buying a new or used car from a dealership. Check out the rest of the series at our Car Buyer's Glossary. Looking at the line-item breakdown of what it actually costs to buy a car can sometimes be stressful. Cars are already expensive, and then there are hundreds of dollars in individual fees tacked on. Let's cover one that seems suspiciously simple: the destination fee. What does the destination fee cover? The destination fee, simply put, covers the cost it takes to get a car from the factory to the dealership. It's usually a flat fee, which doesn't vary by region. It's "equalized" – that is to say, the average cost to ship cars all over the country. If your dealer is right next to the factory that built the car, too bad – you have to pay, too, so folks a couple thousand miles away don't have a massive charge. Is the destination fee regulated by the government? It's also government-mandated, … [Read more...] about The dealer destination fee: what is it, and should you pay it?
