NEW YORK — Three Russian citizens were charged Monday in connection with a Cold War-style Russian spy ring that tried to recruit New York City residents as intelligence sources, authorities said.
The defendants were directed by Russian authorities “to gather intelligence on, among other subjects, potential United States sanctions against Russian banks and the United States’ efforts to develop alternative energy resources,” according to a complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan.
The case was announced Monday by U.
BOSTON — The judge in the federal death penalty trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev said Monday that he’s not discouraged by the slow pace of jury selection.
“We’re making good progress,” Judge George O’Toole Jr. said on the day testimony had been expected to begin.
Instead of listening to opening statements and the first witnesses, O’Toole was questioning prospective jurors for a seventh day.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — The sexual abuse of a 13-year-old scout by an adult volunteer was part of a “sordid history of child sexual abuse” within the Boy Scouts that has been documented internally by the organization for nearly a century, the victim’s attorney said Monday in his opening statement at a civil trial in California.
The scout, now 20, has sued the Boy Scouts of America and a local scouting council for punitive damages after being molested by a volunteer leader in 2007.
Democratic leader Reid has surgery to fix injuries
Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid has undergone surgery to remove a blood clot in his right eye and repair bones in his face, injuries from an accident he suffered while exercising more than three weeks ago.
A spokesman said the surgery was successful and doctors are optimistic that the 75-year-old Reid will regain vision in his injured eye, although they are not yet able to say if that will be the case.
Spokesman Adam Jentleson says Reid will recuperate at his home in Washington this week.
Veterans Affairs announces new regional organization
The Veterans Affairs Department said Monday it is creating a single regional framework that divides the sprawling agency into five clearly marked regions.
The new framework is part of a larger reorganization that VA leaders say will bring a singular focus on customer service to an agency that serves 22 million veterans, including more than 6 million who receive health care each year from the VA’s 970 hospitals or clinics.
The VA now has nine organizational maps and at least a dozen websites, many with their own usernames and passwords, as it provides services ranging from health care to disability benefits, home loans and cemetery plots.
WATERVILLE — A forum held Monday at the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce explored the possibility of establishing office space in Waterville for a mix of individuals and entrepreneurs.
The concept – called a co-location workplace – allows people who might otherwise be working from home the amenities of an office. Benefits could include high-speed Internet, a quiet environment, conference space and a place to meet clients – as well as the chance to socialize and collaborate with others.
Attendees at the forum included Waterville city officials, leaders of local colleges, and real estate developers and legislators, including Senate Minority Leader Justin Alfond, D-Portland.
“Creativity and innovation are the hallmarks of the kind of change people want to see in Waterville right now,” said Nate Rudy, executive director of Waterville Creates!, a nonprofit group that has focused on collaborative relationships among the city’s arts groups.
“I think the great things about a project like this is that it provides just that,” Rudy said.
AUGUSTA — A battle is brewing between the LePage administration and public health advocates over the administration’s plan to cut $20 million over two years from a public health fund that pays for anti-smoking programs.
The administration says the funding reduction will allow the state to maintain reimbursement rates for primary care doctors who work with MaineCare patients and for other health initiatives.
