The city of San Diego is facing another lawsuit over the former mayor whose term was cut short by sexual harassment allegations.
UT-San Diego (http://bit.ly/1qxc2Lm ) reported Friday that Bob Filner's executive assistant accuses him of lewd comments, gropes and sexual propositions.
The St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, was roiled by racial unrest after 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black, was shot and killed by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, on Aug. 9.
The street clashes there mirrored past, larger-scale riots in multiple U. S. cities, most of them triggered by perceived racial injustice, or an incident involving police, in already tense communities.
Once the troops left on July 2, a group of whites shot at blacks' homes, and blacks retaliated by killing two white police officers.
After a state grand jury investigation, 144 men, including five police officers, were indicted on charges ranging from arson to murder.
A Southwest Airlines jet has made a safe emergency landing after sustaining a blown tire during takeoff.
Hawkins says the captain of the Boeing 737 flew by the airport so Southwest personnel and air traffic controllers could check for any damage, then landed the plane.
The Pentagon on Friday accused a Chinese fighter jet of conducting a "dangerous intercept" of a U. S. Navy aircraft off the coast of China in international airspace.
In 2001 a Chinese jet collided with a U. S. Navy surveillance aircraft off Hainan Island, killing the Chinese pilot and forcing the Navy plane to make an emergency landing on the island.
Jordan Norwood's season-ending knee injury jumbled the Denver Broncos' search for Trindon Holliday's replacement on punt returns and dented the team's depth at wide receiver.
Given his concussion history, Welker was expected to field punts whenever the Broncos were backed up deep or the game was close with Norwood taking the field whenever there was a chance to have a big return.
With Welker missing two days of joint practices with the Houston Texans this week for personal reasons, there's a strong possibility Burse will get a long look Saturday night when the teams face each other in a preseason game.
Norwood tore his left ACL on Tuesday while trying to make a sideline catch in the end zone on a throw from Peyton Manning.
Burse had a 20-yard punt return and caught a 34-yard TD pass from Brock Osweiler against Seattle in the preseason opener.
Norwood's injury gives Burse an opportunity to make a better second impression and keep the Broncos from scouring the waiver wire for a returner.
Every special teams meeting Coach (Jeff) Rodgers starts off the meeting saying, 'Hey, Burse, what's the most important thing in our return game?' Just get the ball back to our offense.
