FLAT-EARTHER DELAYS LAUNCH IN HIS HOMEMADE ROCKET, SAYING 'IT'S NOT EASY'…. It appears we will need to wait a while longer to find out whether more than two millennia of thinkers and explorers — from Aristotle and Ferdinand Magellan, to Neil deGrasse Tyson and John Glenn — have been wrong about the shape of the Earth. Our modern Super Hero "Mad" Mike Hughes, limousine driver and self-proclaimed flat-Earther, announced that he had to delay his plan to launch himself 1,800 feet high in a rocket of his own making. The launch, which he has billed as a crucial first step toward ultimately photographing our disc-world from space, had been scheduled for Saturday — before the Bureau of Land Management got wind of the plan and barred him from using public land in Amboy, Calif. Also, the rocket launcher he had built out of a used motor home "broke down in the driveway" on Wednesday, according to Hughes. He said in a YouTube announcement that they'd eventually gotten the launcher fixed — but the small matter of federal permission proved a more serious stumbling block (for now). The BLM "informed me that they were not going to allow me to do the event there — at least at that location," Hughes said. Hughes asserted that the BLM last year had tacitly left the matter of permissions to the Federal Aviation Administration, and "of course, they can't honestly approve it," he added. The FAA "just said, 'Well, we know that you're going to do it there.' " It turns out the BLM wasn't satisfied with that explanation — particularly after The Associated Press first reported on the launch for a national audience. "Someone from our local office reached out to him after seeing some of these news articles [about the launch], because that was news to them," a spokeswoman for the agency told The Washington Post, adding that Hughes had not applied to the local BLM field office for the necessary permit. "So, it turned out to be not a good thing," Hughes said. Still, Hughes has not relented in his quest to launch himself roughly 500 mph on a mile-long flight across the sky above the Mojave Desert. He said he has found private property near his original launch site, where he anticipates finally taking off as early as this coming week.....
11 SUSPECTS CHARGED IN HISTORIC FENTANYL BUST…. Eleven people — many of whom are well known to Alberta law enforcement — face 127 separate charges in a $4.1-million Calgary drug bust, one of the largest ever in the province. Representatives of the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT) gave details on the massive haul of illicit drugs, cash and firearms during a Wednesday morning news conference, a multi-agency effort to dismantle a Canada-wide drug trafficking and money laundering enterprise headquartered in Calgary. Titled Project Offshore, the fruits of the year-long investigation represents the agency's fifth-largest seizure of illegal drugs in its history — as well as its biggest seizure of fentanyl, taking 15,757 of the dangerous pills off the streets. "Given the health crisis our communities have faced over opioid abuse, there's no doubt in my mind that lives have been saved," Insp. Patty McCallum said at the news conference. "This was a complex and robust investigation that deployed a variety of specialized resources and police techniques." While declining to elaborate on the specifics of the investigation, McCallum said search warrants were executed on 11 homes throughout the investigation.
In addition to fentanyl — which investigators believe came into Alberta from B.C. — police confiscated almost seven kilograms of cocaine powder, 1.5 kilograms of crack and more than 100 OxyContin pills. Also seized was 27 kilograms of methamphetamine — another record seizure for ALERT. The scope of the trafficking enterprise, McCallum said, was far-reaching, spanning from Vancouver as far east as the Maritimes. Overall, Project Offshore was the fifth-largest drug seizure in ALERT's history.
ESTRANGED HUSBAND PLEADS GUILTY TO STABBING ONT. WOMAN 30 TIMES…. The estranged spouse of a St. Catharines woman plunged a knife into the 39-year-old’s body 30 times as their two young children slept nearby, court heard Tuesday. The lifeless body of Angela McAdorey was found the following day by her sister, the knife used to murder her resting on her back. In a Superior Court of Justice in St. Catharines on Tuesday, Karl McAdorey, 44, pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder. A conviction of second-degree murder carries an automatic life sentence but the number of years a person must serve before being eligible for parole varies. Assistant Crown attorney Richard Monette told Judge Joseph Henderson he and defence lawyer Donald Wolfe do not agree on how many years McAdorey should serve before being eligible for parole and requested sentencing be adjourned to Feb. 7, 2018. Monette added he expects family members to present “quite a number” of victim impact statements on that day.
Angela was found dead in her Appleby Drive home Feb. 10 by police officers who were called to the Grantham area home by family members.
Court was told Karl and Angela married in 2005 and separated in July 2016. The defendant maintained regular contact with his wife because of their two children, who were ages eight and nine at the time of their mother’s death. On Feb. 9, 2017, Karl went to his wife’s Appleby Drive home to tell his children their grandmother had passed away the previous day. After the children went to bed, court heard, he took a kitchen knife with a seven-inch blade and began stabbing his wife. She suffered 30 stab wounds to her neck, face and shoulder as well as her upper chest. “He stabbed her repeatedly,” Monette said. A forensic pathologist noted the woman had a number of defensive wounds on her hands and arms. “One wound entered her arm and exited on the other side and went into her chest,” Monette told the judge. After murdering their mother, Karl took the children to his home for the evening.
#FREECYNTOIABROWN: CELEBRITIES RALLY BEHIND TEEN SEX SLAVE SENTENCED TO LIFE FOR KILLING HER ALLEGED ABUSER…. Kim Kardashian is among the celebrities demanding justice for sex trafficking victim Cyntoia Brown, who was sentenced to life in prison after killing her alleged abuser. Brown was 16 when she was sold to a Nashville real estate agent called Johnny Allen, who allegedly kept her captive as a sex slave and abused her. Terrified she was going to be killed, Brown killed Allen when she had the chance.
She has already served 13 years of her life sentence, and won’t be eligible for parole for another 51 years.
'A VERY SVENGALI-TYPE SITUATION'; INMATE DIES AFTER METH-LADEN KISS FROM GIRLFRIEND…. An Oregon woman whose inmate boyfriend died from a meth-laden kiss after a prison visit was sentenced to two years behind bars Tuesday on a drug conspiracy charge. Melissa Ann Blair and Anthony Powell shared a long kiss at the end of a visit last year at the Oregon State Penitentiary and she passed seven tiny balloons filled with methamphetamine into his mouth. Two of the balloons ruptured in Powell’s stomach a short time later and he died of methamphetamine toxicity, prosecutors have said. U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez said Blair’s actions were part of a scheme devised by Powell and others to get drugs inside the prison. There was a dispute as to whether Blair participated of her own free will, but Powell shared responsibility for his own death, Hernandez said.
“It was tragic and sad but he shares responsibility for what happened,” the judge said. The 41-year-old was serving a life sentence for aggravated murder in the stabbing death of his mother-in-law, according to court records. Besides two years in federal prison, the judge also ordered Blair, 46, to complete three years of post-release supervision and participate in drug treatment and mental health programs. She did not make a statement in court. Her sister, who attended the hearing, declined to comment.
Blair felt coerced by Powell even though he was behind bars, her attorney, John Ransom, said outside court. She used methamphetamine but was not addicted, he said.
“It was a very Svengali-type situation where he had total control over her life,” Ransom said. “She had to do whatever he said.”
WOMAN STABBED HER ALLEGEDLY ABUSIVE NAKED GRANDDAD 41 TIMES — TO DEATH…. A 21-year-old woman has been arrested in the death of her 80-year-old grandfather after police say she stabbed him 41 times in the home they shared last week because she says he was abusive to her. Patricia Diocson is charged with murder and possession of an instrument of crime in the death of Robert Girard. No attorney is listed in online court documents. Police say she initially told investigators she came home Wednesday at 9 p.m. and found her grandfather naked in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor in the city's Port Richmond neighbourhood. Police say there was a trail of blood leading from Girard's second-floor bedroom to the kitchen, and there were no signs of forced entry. Police say she later confessed to stabbing him 41 times.
