A man remains missing after two people, including a young child, were rescued from the Niagara River in Fort Erie.

Niagara police said emergency crews were called to the Niagara River near Jarvis Street around 6:30 p.m. for a report of three people in the water in distress.

Const. Phil Gavin said a bystander, who saw the incident, was able to pull a 29-year-old woman and a young child from the water.

Niagara paramedics transported the woman to an area hospital in critical condition. The child was also taken to hospital for assessment.

Gavin said 28-year-old Joshawa Raymond Douglas Brooks, of Fort Erie, was last seen in the river.

As a result of an ongoing investigation, Gavin said Brooks is wanted for criminal negligence in relation to the young child.

The U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and Erie County Sheriff’s Office are all assisting Niagara police in the search.

Anyone who may have witnessed what happened is being asked to contact police.

Wife identifies Freetown man as latest person to die of EEE, says he didnt deserve this –

September 20th, 2019

FREETOWN — The latest person to die of Eastern equine encephalitis in Massachusetts is being remembered as a beloved husband, father and grandfather.

James Longworth, 78, first became ill over the weekend, his wife, Diane Balestracci, told WCVB. He was in a coma by Monday and died Thursday.

Balestracci, who was married to Longworth for 27 years, described her late husband as a “wonderful man.”

“He didn’t deserve this,” she said.

She believes her husband was bitten by an infected mosquito in their East Freetown backyard, where Longworth enjoyed doing yardwork.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced earlier Friday that laboratory testing confirmed a Bristol County man died of EEE in the state’s 10th human case of the virus this year.

The family has not yet scheduled a date for a celebration of Longworth’s life.

There are 35 communities now at critical risk, 40 at high risk and 128 at moderate risk for the EEE virus in Massachusetts.

State health officials said this year is the worst outbreak of EEE in Massachusetts since the 1950s.

In addition to the 10 human cases of EEE this season in Massachusetts, there have also been eight confirmed cases of EEE this year in animals — seven horses and a goat. Laurie Sylvia, 59, of Fairhaven died of EEE on Aug. 25, her family said. Another SouthCoast resident, a Rochester man in his 60s, has also been stricken with the virus.

One patient also died of EEE in Connecticut earlier this week, according to that state’s Department of Public Health. This is Connecticut’s first death from EEE since 2013.

Rhode Island has also had a EEE death.

As previously announced, the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources is conducting aerial spraying for mosquitoes Friday and through the weekend in parts of Bristol and Plymouth counties.


Suzanne Whang, Former Host of ‘House Hunters,’ Dies at 56 – The New York Times

September 20th, 2019

Suzanne Whang, an actress, comedian and former host of HGTV’s “House Hunters, died Tuesday after a long battle with breast cancer, her longtime agent, Eddie Culbertson, said Friday. She was 56.

“For thirteen years she confronted cancer with courage, humor, determination and optimism,” her partner, Jeff Vezain, wrote in a message on her website. “She was immensely encouraged by the love of her family, friends and those she had yet to meet.”

Ms. Whang served as the on-camera host and narrator for the enormously popular show “House Hunters” from 1999 to 2008. She also hosted the spinoff series “House Hunters International,” from 2006 to 2008. In sum, she hosted more than 400 episodes, according to an HGTV representative.

She made appearances on a wide range of TV shows, including “Arrested Development” and “Dexter.” From 2005 to 2008, she played Polly, a spa owner, on the NBC series “Las Vegas.”

Ms. Whang moved to Los Angeles in 1998 to pursue a career in show business. The daughter of a Navy engineer who moved the family frequently, she was determined to keep friendships throughout adulthood.

“Suzanne is the kind of human being who will spoon-feed you when you are a mess,” the actress Vanessa Marcil, who worked with Ms. Whang on “Las Vegas,” told The New York Times in 2013, when Ms. Whang married her second husband, Jay Nickerson. (The pair filed for divorce in 2015, according to court records.)

On set and beyond, Ms. Whang developed a reputation as an exceptionally positive person. In the fall of 2006, when she learned that she had breast cancer, she said she told the doctor, “This will be great material for my act.”

Though at first she was private about the diagnosis, she eventually did precisely that, incorporating her health problems in her stand-up routine. She credited her paternal grandfather, a prominent Presbyterian leader in Washington, with teaching her how to incorporate comedy into unlikely topics. People would tell him that church was not funny, she told the The New York Times in 2013, and he would remind her that without humor, people would fall asleep.

Five years after her diagnosis, doctors told her she was free of cancer. But it returned last October, according to Mr. Culbertson, who represented her for nearly 25 years.

“She was a brilliant talent and a wicked comedian,” he said. “People didn’t know that about her.”

He noted that she won the Andy Kaufman Award at the 2004 New York Comedy Festival, among other comedy honors.

In a statement, a representative for HGTV said: “Suzanne was warm, funny and kind with a distinctive voice that made everyone feel at home. Our HGTV family mourns her loss and wishes to express deepest condolences to her friends, fans and family who knew and loved her.”

Friends posted online about her passing. “#RIP my bold, brilliant, hilarious friend,” Tom Bergeron, a co-host of “Dancing With The Stars,” said on Twitter on Friday.

In the message on Ms. Whang’s website, Mr. Vezain acknowledged her willingness to feel intensely and openly.

“I know she would prefer that her life be celebrated, as opposed to her passing mourned, but I also know how vehemently she disagreed with anyone being told, ‘Don’t cry.’ So … cry if you will,” he wrote.

Yemen based Houthi rebels to cease drone and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia – The Globe and Mail

September 20th, 2019

Yemen’s Houthi rebels said late Friday night that they were halting drone and missile attacks against Saudi Arabia, one week after they claimed responsibility for a strike that crippled a key oil facility in the kingdom.

The U.S. and the Saudis blamed the Sept. 14 attack on Iran, which backs the Houthi rebels fighting a Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen. Iran denies any responsibility.

Mahdi al-Mashat, head of the Houthis’ supreme political council, which runs rebel-held areas in Yemen, said the group is waiting for a “positive response” from Saudi Arabia. His comments were carried by the Houthi-run al-Masirah satellite TV.

The announcement could be a first step toward a wider ceasefire in Yemen, but it remained unclear, and there was no immediate response from the Saudi-led coalition.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres expressed concern about a coalition airstrike early Friday around Al Hali district, north of the port city of Hodeida in Yemen. Guterres appealed for restraint and said the warring parties had agreed to respect a December cease-fire deal in the Hodeida area, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

The conflict has killed tens of thousands of people and sparked what the UN describes as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The recent attacks on Saudi Arabia knocked out more than half of the country’s daily crude oil production.
