GOP-led budget panel adds abortion restriction
COLUMBUS (AP) —Abortion providers in Ohiowould have to inform pregnantwomen in writing about thepresence of a fetal heartbeatbefore the procedure undera last-minute change beingadded to the state budget.Providers could give thepregnant woman the option toview or hear the heartbeat.The amendment addedTuesday by a Republican-dominated committee bansdoctors from purposefully per-forming or inducing an abor-tion on a pregnant womanbefore determining the pres-ence of a detectable fetal heart-beat unless there is a medicalemergency.The change also would createcriminal penalties for providerswho fail to comply with the pro-posed “informed consent” rules.Two Democrats on the six-member conference committeeobjected to the addition, contend-ing there had been no hearings.The committee plannedto vote on proposed budgetchanges later Tuesday night.
Weather extremes tied to jet stream
WASHINGTON (AP) —Lately, the jet stream isn’tplaying by the rules. Scientistssay that big river of air highabove Earth that dictates muchof the weather for the NorthernHemisphere has been unusu-ally erratic the past few years.They blame it for everythingfrom snowstorms in May to thepath of Superstorm Sandy.And last week, it wasresponsible for downpoursthat led to historic floods inAlberta, Canada, as well asrecord-breaking heat in parts of Alaska, experts say. The townof McGrath, Alaska, hit 94.Just a few weeks earlier, thesame spot was 15 degrees.The current heat wave inthe Northeast is also linked.“While it’s not unusualto have a heat wave in theeast in June, it is part of theanomalous jet stream patternthat was responsible for theflooding in Alberta,” RutgersUniversity climate scientistJennifer Francis said Tuesdayin an email.The jet stream usually rush-es rapidly from west to eastin a mostly straight direction.But lately it’s been wobblingand weaving like a drunkendriver, wreaking havoc as itgoes. The more the jet streamundulates north and south, themore changeable and extremethe weather.It’s a relatively new phe-nomenon that scientists are stilltrying to understand. Some sayit’s related to global warming;others say it’s not.In May, there was upside-down weather: Early Californiawildfires fueled by heat con-trasted with more than a foot of snow in Minnesota. Seattle wasthe hottest spot in the nation oneday, and Maine and Edmonton,Canada, were warmer thanMiami and Phoenix.Consider these unusualoccurrences over the past fewyears:— The winter of 2011-12seemed to disappear, with littlesnow and record warmth inMarch. That was followed bythe winter of 2012-13 whennor’easters seemed to queue upto strike the same coastal areasrepeatedly.— Superstorm Sandy tookan odd left turn in Octoberfrom the Atlantic straight intoNew Jersey, something thathappens once every 700 yearsor so.
Supreme Court halts use of key part of voting law
BY MARK SHERMANAssociated Press
WASHINGTON — A deep-ly divided Supreme Court threwout the most powerful part of the landmark Voting Rights Acton Tuesday, a decision deploredby the White House but cheeredby mostly Southern states nowfree from nearly 50 years of intense federal oversight of their elections.Split along ideological andpartisan lines, the justicesvoted 5-4 to strip the gov-ernment of its most potenttool to stop voting bias —the requirement in the VotingRights Act that all or parts of 15 states with a history of dis-crimination in voting, mainlyin the South, get Washington’sapproval before changing theway they hold elections.Chief Justice John Roberts,writing for a majority of conservative, Republican-appointed justices, said thelaw’s provision that deter-mines which states are coveredis unconstitutional because itrelies on 40-year-old data anddoes not account for racialprogress and other changes inU.S. society.The decision effectivelyputs an end to the advanceapproval requirement that hasbeen used to open up poll-ing places to minority vot-ers in the nearly half centurysince it was first enacted in1965, unless Congress cancome up with a new formulathat Roberts said meets “cur-rent conditions” in the UnitedStates. That seems unlikely tohappen any time soon.Corn $6.77Wheat $6.51Soybeans $15.37CLEVELAND (AP) —These Ohio lotteries weredrawn Tuesday:
