More than 50% of schools rate bus driver shortage as ‘severe’ or ‘desperate’



More than 50% of schools rate bus driver shortage as 'severe' or 'desperate'

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (NewsNation Now) — As COVID-19 vaccine mandates continue to go into effect in several states, some are worried the school bus driver shortage could get even worse if drivers refuse to get the shot.

Hundreds of drivers threatened to quit over new vaccine mandates going into effect this week in New York and Connecticut. As a result, administrators are breathing a sigh of relief that hasn’t happened yet.

In a recent National Association for Pupil Transporation survey, more than half of student-transportation coordinators nationwide described their school bus driver shortage as “severe” or “desperate.”

The nationwide shortage of bus drivers complicated the start of a school year, delaying the start of some schools and forcing school districts to find creative ways to fill vacancies.

Many school districts raised the starting pay, paid for training and offered thousands in signing and retention bonuses. For example, in New Jersey, one district is offering $23 an hour starting pay.

“We’ve had drivers leave our district to go to others that pay more; now we’re hoping some will leave other districts to come to us,” said Kyle Newton, Anderson District 5 spokesperson.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul pleaded to expedite the licensing process to speed up hiring. And Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker activated the National Guard, 90 members currently training to operate transport vans.

Schools in Deptford, New Jersey, shifted to early dismissal to get all students home.

Part of the nationwide scramble to adjust can also be felt in Arkansas.

“We have been able to consolidate a few of our routes in order to make it work with our current number of bus drivers, but we have no leeway if someone calls in sick,” said Gravette School District Superintendent Maribel Childress.

“We’re double- and triple-running some of our routes which may cause students to get home later in the evening, but we do want to provide a ride home for any student who needs it,” said Mike McClure, the director of transportation of Fayetteville Public Schools.

The ripple effect is also impacting many after-school sporting events.

“Many of those drivers aren’t available until after 4:45, so any of our athletic events that leave earlier, we’re going to have trouble finding a driver to take that,” said Paw Paw Public Schools Superintendent Rick Reo.

Here are the problems school districts face:

The national average pay for school bus drivers is $17 an hour, and they need a commercial driver’s license (CDL), just like a tractor-trailer driver. But on average, truck drivers make $24 an hour, and there’s a shortage of them right now, too.

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. – An East St. Louis man pled guilty Monday to distributing fentanyl and more.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Illinois said Anthony Wisham, 59, “pled guilty to two counts of distribution of fentanyl, one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, and one count of felon in possession of a firearm” in federal court in East St. Louis, Illinois.

Wisham also admitted to “distributing ounce quantities of fentanyl on September 15, 2020.” He also admitted to possessing 21.3 grams of cocaine with the intent to distribute, and that he had a firearm in his possession after previously having a felony conviction.

He will be sentenced on December 29 at 10:30 a.m. Wisham faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

The Drug Enforcement Administration investigated this matter.

Still growing! Powerball jackpot hits $570 million



Still growing! Powerball jackpot hits $570 million

(AP Photo/Tony Dejak)

(WJW) – You’ve got a few more days to buy a ticket for your chance to hit the big jackpot.

The Powerball jackpot once again went unclaimed after Monday night’s winning numbers — 21-22-39-44-60, with a Powerball of 12 — yielded no grand-prize winners. That means the jackpot will keep growing until the next drawing on Wednesday.

The new jackpot currently totals $570 million, with a cash option of $410.1 million.

The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot, meanwhile, are said to be roughly 1 in 292.2 million. So while it’s certainly possible that any individual with a Powerball ticket can win, players would have a better chance, at least statistically, of becoming a movie star or even the president of the United States than taking home the jackpot.

Wednesday’s drawing is scheduled for 11 p.m.

Maryland newspaper gunman gets more than 5 life prison terms



Maryland newspaper gunman gets more than 5 life prison terms

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A man who killed five people at a newspaper in Maryland was sentenced on Tuesday to more than five life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Anne Arundel County Judge Michael Wachs ordered the sentence for Jarrod Ramos, whom a jury previously found criminally responsible for killing Wendi Winters, John McNamera, Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen and Rebecca Smith with a shotgun at the Capital Gazette’s office in June 2018.

Ramos had pleaded guilty but not criminally responsible to all 23 counts against him in 2019, using Maryland’s version of an insanity defense. The case was delayed several times before and during the coronavirus pandemic.

Before announcing the sentence, the judge noted that Ramos showed no remorse for the crimes and even told a state psychiatrist he would kill more if he were ever released.

“The impact of this case is just simply immense,” Wachs said. “To say that the defendant exhibited a callous and complete disregard for the sanctity of human life is simply a huge understatement.”

Ramos, who sat in court wearing a black mask, declined to make a statement in court when asked by his attorney, Katy O’Donnell.

Also prior to the sentencing, survivors of the shooting and relatives of the five victims who died in the attack described the pain and loss they have experienced.

Montana Winters Geimer, daughter of shooting victim Wendi Winters, testified how her mother “woke up one morning, went to work and never came back.”

“The day she died was the worst day of my life,” Geimer told Wachs. “The hours spent not knowing if she was alive or dead have lived in my nightmares ever since.”

The assault was one of the worst attacks on journalists in U.S. history.

After a 12-day trial in July, a jury took less than two hours to reject arguments from Ramos’ attorneys that he could not understand the criminality of his actions.

Prosecutors contend Ramos, 41, acted out of revenge against the newspaper after it published a story about his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of harassing a former high school classmate in 2011. Prosecutors said his long, meticulous planning for the attack — which included preparations for his arrest and long incarceration — proved he understood the criminality of his actions.

Watch: Gabby Petito’s family speaks out



Watch: Gabby Petito's family speaks out

TAMPA, Fla. (NewsNation Now) — Gabby Petito’s family is set to speak publicly for the first time since the 22-year-old YouTuber’s body was discovered in a Wyoming national park as the manhunt for her boyfriend stretches on.

Brian Laundrie was last seen two weeks ago entering the 24,000-acre Carlton Reserve in Florida but was not reported missing until a few days later. Investigators had focused intently on the area after Laundrie’s parents told police he may have gone there. The search for Laundrie is still underway, with the FBI taking the lead.

Petito vanished while on a cross-country road trip with Laundrie in a converted camper van. The trip was well-documented on social media until it abruptly ceased, allegedly somewhere in Wyoming. The couple documented most of their trip, which started in July, on a YouTube Vlog called “VAN LIFE”. The last posts to both their Instagram accounts were from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

Petito, 22, was reported missing on Sept. 11 by her parents after she did not respond to calls and texts for several days while the couple visited parks in the West. Her body was discovered days later at Grand Teton National Park. reporter Brian Entin confirmed that the Petito family would hold a press conference in New York Tuesday afternoon. NewsNation will live stream the Petito family press conference in the player above.

Protesters gathered outside the North Port, Florida home where Petito lived with Laundrie and his parents Monday. Those in the group yelled, “Where is he?” and, “Tell us what happened to Gabby!” specifically addressing Laundrie’s parents.

The Laundrie family attorney, Steven Bertolino, sent this text message to Monday evening, denying the family was involved with Laundrie’s disappearance:

“Chris and Roberta Laundrie do not know where Brian is. They are concerned about Brian and hope the FBI can locate him. The speculation by the public and some in the press that the parents assisted Brian in leaving the family home or in avoiding arrest on a warrant that was issued after Brian had already been missing for several days is just wrong.”


Teton County Coroner Brent Blue classified Petito’s death as a homicide — meaning her death was caused by another person — but did not disclose how she was killed pending further autopsy results. Laundrie, 23, has not been charged in relation to her death but has been considered a person of interest in her disappearance.

The FBI issued an arrest warrant for Laundrie last week. Laundrie is wanted for “use of unauthorized access device” related to his activities following Petito’s death. The FBI says Laundrie used a debit card and a PIN to access two bank accounts Aug. 30 and Sept. 1.

 A memorial service was held for Petito in Long Island Sunday.

“I want you to take a look at these pictures and I want you to be inspired by them. If there’s a trip you want to take, take it. Now. Do it now while you’ve got the time. If there is a relationship that you’re in that might not be the best thing for you, leave it now,” Petito’s father, Joseph Petito said. “Gabby is the most amazing person I’ve ever met. I’m asking you guys to be inspired by the way she treated people, all people.”

After a year-plus of essential work, employees at Aurora HelloFresh pushing to unionize



After a year-plus of essential work, employees at Aurora HelloFresh pushing to unionize

Sisters Mary and Sarah Williams are proud to be essential workers, the ones who have gone to their job sites each day during the pandemic to produce goods to keep the country moving.

The sisters both work on the assembly line at the Aurora site of HelloFresh, the country’s largest home-delivered, meal-kit provider.

“A lot of homes were ordering meal kits because restaurants were closed and grocery stores were wiped out,” said Mary, 28, who started at HelloFresh almost a year ago after losing her job in the hospitality industry.

The sisters are still proud of the role they play in meeting people’s needs. But the two say while business and revenue have skyrocketed for the Germany-based HelloFresh during the pandemic, so has the pressure on employees to work harder to meet the demand.

The Williams sisters said nothing changed after meetings with managers about safety concerns and what they described as work speed-ups. The majority of the nearly 400-member staff have signed up to form a union and are waiting for an election to be scheduled.

“We’re literally treated like robots,” Mary said. “This is really the only way we can make changes at this warehouse.”

Unite Here!, a union representing 300,000 people in food service, gaming and other industries, is working with HelloFresh workers in Aurora and at a larger facility in Richmond, Calif. Besides complaints of low pay and not enough workers, a recent accident that seriously injured two employees in Aurora has galvanized employees to organize.

“I’m organizing with the union to stand up for those victims. I believe this whole thing could’ve been avoided,” said Brandon Lolin, who was close by when four people were struck June 16 by a pallet of bins that fell from a high shelf.

“The health and safety of our team members is our top priority and following an incident in June 2021, we took immediate steps to correct the hazard, update protocols, and increase our on-site safety team headcount,” HelloFresh U.S. spokesperson Robyn Schweitzer said in an email.

The company works with its team members every day to advocate for improvements and continuously enhance safety programs, Schweitzer said.

HelloFresh declined to discuss the accident, but employees said one person suffered a broken back and another sustained a head injury. The woman with the back injury hasn’t returned to work, said Kevin Abels, Unite Here Local 23 president, based in Denver.

Kishore Kulkarni, an economics professor at Metropolitan State University of Denver, said he isn’t surprised that workers are trying to organize unions. He said businesses across the spectrum are struggling to fill positions, offering signing bonuses and other benefits.

“It goes without saying that when there is a shortage of labor, labor does have some of the upper hand,” Kulkarni said. “I would say as long as there is a high demand for labor and as long as there is a shortage of labor, it gives them better bargaining power.”

In 2020, 14.3 million of the country’s wage and salaried workers, or 10.8%, were members of unions, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 1983, the first year for which comparable union data are available, the union membership rate was 20.1%, or 17.7 million people.

“This is what America is all about. The middle class has been built by organized labor and the union movement in America,” Colorado Rep. Jason Crow said during a Sept. 23 video town hall organized by Unite Here.

The Democratic congressman was among several state and local politicians on the video conference. Adams County Commissioner Emma Pinter said the HelloFresh workers are among the thousands of employees “who’ve put their lives on the line” during the coronavirus outbreak so other people can stay home out of harm’s way.

U.S. military leaders favored keeping troops in Afghanistan



U.S. military leaders favored keeping troops in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON — In their first congressional testimony on the tumultuous final months of America’s longest war, top U.S. military officers on Tuesday acknowledged misjudging the fragility of Afghanistan’s army and said they believed the U.S. should have kept at least several thousand troops in the country to prevent a rapid takeover by the Taliban.

Without saying what advice he had given President Joe Biden last spring when Biden was considering whether to keep any troops in Afghanistan, Gen. Mark Milley told the Senate Armed Services Committee it was his personal opinion that at least 2,500 were needed to guard against a collapse of the Kabul government.

Gen. Frank McKenzie, who as head of Central Command had overseen the final months of the U.S. war, said he agreed with Milley’s assessment. He also declined to say what he had recommended to Biden.

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., asked Milley why he did not choose to resign after his advice was rejected.

Milley, who was appointed to his position as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff by President Donald Trump and retained by Biden, said it was his responsibility to provide the commander in chief with his best advice.

“The president doesn’t have to agree with that advice,” Milley said. “He doesn’t have to make those decisions just because we are generals. And it would be an incredible act of political defiance for a commissioned officer to resign just because my advice was not taken.”

Testifying alongside Milley and McKenzie, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin defended the military’s execution of a frantic airlift from Kabul and asserted it will be “difficult but absolutely possible” to contain future threats from Afghanistan without troops on the ground. Under questioning, he, too, declined to say what advice he had given Biden about whether to make a full troop withdrawal.

Milley cited “a very real possibility” that al-Qaida or the Islamic State group’s Afghanistan affiliate could reconstitute in Afghanistan under Taliban rule and present a terrorist threat to the United States in the next 12 to 36 months.

It was al-Qaida’s use of Afghanistan as a base from which to plan and execute its attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, that triggered the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan a month later.

“And we must remember that the Taliban was and remains a terrorist organization and they still have not broken ties with al-Qaida,” Milley said. “I have no illusions who we are dealing with. It remains to be seen whether or not the Taliban can consolidate power or if the country will further fracture into civil war.”

Austin questioned decisions made over the 20-year course of the U.S. war in Afghanistan. In retrospect, he said, the American government may have put too much faith in its ability to build a viable Afghan government.

“We helped build a state, but we could not forge a nation,” he told the Senate Armed Services Committee. “The fact that the Afghan army we and our partners trained simply melted away – in many cases without firing a shot – took us all by surprise. It would be dishonest to claim otherwise.”

Asked why the United States did not foresee the rapid collapse of the Afghan army, Milley said that in his judgment the U.S. military lost its ability to see and understand the true condition of the Afghan forces when it ended the practice some years ago of having advisers alongside the Afghans on the battlefield.

“You can’t measure the human heart with a machine, you have to be there,” Milley said.

Austin acknowledged shortcomings in the final airlift from Hamid Karzai International Airport that began Aug. 14, such as an initial wave of violence at and near the airfield that led to multiple deaths of Afghan civilians. But he asserted that the airlift was a historic accomplishment that removed 124,000 people from Taliban rule.

“To be clear, those first two days were difficult,” said Austin, who is a veteran of the war. “We all watched with alarm the images of Afghans rushing the runway and our aircraft. We all remember the scenes of confusion outside the airport. But within 48 hours, our troops restored order, and process began to take hold.”

The Biden administration faces criticism on multiple fronts for its handling of the final months of the war.

Sen. James Inhofe, the ranking Republican on the Armed Services panel, told Austin and Milley that the withdrawal and evacuation amounted to an “avoidable disaster.”

Republicans in particular have intensified their attacks on President Joe Biden’s decision to pull all troops out of Afghanistan by Aug. 30, saying it left the U.S. more vulnerable to terrorism. They are demanding more details on the suicide bombing in Kabul that killed 13 American service members in the final days of the withdrawal.

Gen. Frank McKenzie, who as head of Central Command oversaw the withdrawal, testified alongside Austin and Milley.

Inhofe has peppered the Pentagon with a lengthy list of questions about multiple aspects of the withdrawal, including the suicide bombing on Aug. 26 at Kabul’s international airport that killed some 169 Afghans in addition to the American service members. He also is demanding information about decision making over the summer as it became apparent that the Taliban were overwhelming U.S.-backed Afghan forces.

“We need a full accounting of every factor and decision that led us to where we are today and a real plan for defending America moving forward,” Inhofe wrote last week.

The withdrawal ended the longest war in U.S. history. The Biden administration, and some Democrats in Congress, have argued that former President Donald Trump bears some of the blame for the war ending in a Taliban victory, since his administration signed a deal with the Taliban in 2020 that promised a full American withdrawal by May 2021. They also have pointed to a yearslong U.S. failure to build an Afghan military that could stand up to the Taliban.

“This is not a Democratic or a Republican problem. These failures have been manifesting over four presidential administrations of both political parties,” Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I, said the day after the Taliban took over Kabul on Aug. 15.

Although Tuesday’s hearing was scheduled to focus on Afghanistan, other topics were sure to come up, including Milley’s actions during the final months of Trump’s presidency.

Some in Congress have accused Milley of disloyalty for what the book “Peril,” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, reported as assurances to a Chinese general that the U.S. had no plan to attack China, and that if it did, Milley would warn him in advance. In the days following news accounts of the book’s reporting, Milley declined to comment in detail, instead telling reporters that he would lay out his answers directly to Congress. His only comments have been that the calls with the Chinese were routine and within the duties and responsibilities of his job.

Both Milley and Austin have defended the U.S. military’s execution of an Afghanistan withdrawal that Biden ordered in April. The pullout was largely completed by early July, but several hundred troops were kept in Kabul, along with some defensive equipment, to protect a U.S. diplomatic presence in the capital. The State Department initially said the diplomats would remain after the military withdrawal was completed by Aug. 31, but when the Afghan forces collapsed and President Ashraf Ghani fled the country, leaving the Taliban in charge, a frantic evacuation began.

Missouri locksmith dressed as George Washington charged for role in Jan. 6th Capitol Insurrection



Missouri locksmith dressed as George Washington charged for role in Jan. 6th Capitol Insurrection

WASHINGTON D.C. — A Nevada business owner has been arrested and charged for his role in the Capitol Insurrection.

An online tip to the FBI National Threat Operations Center submitted on February 26, 2021 stated,

“I was made aware that an individual that works at Yoder locksmith in Nevada Missouri was involved in the storming of the Capitol on Jan 6th. I am unsure of the gentleman’s first name but know the day of the event he was inside the Capitol and was dressed as George Washington.”

With this information, the FBI reviewed the business’ website and contact numbers and found an image of a man in colonial period attire captioned “Isaac & Kelly Yoder.”

FBI screenshot of “Yoder Lock & Key” website

After cross-referencing the website picture, a Missouri driver’s license photo, social media accounts, photographs from inside the Capitol, CCTV footage, and cell phone usage during the Insurrection the FBI ID’d the man as Isaac Samuel Yoder.

Yoder voluntarily agreed to an interviewed by the FBI on March 16th at the Joplin Resident Agency. At this interview Yoder brought the same outfit seen in photographs and admitted to entering the Capitol on January 6th; saying his family attended the Trump rally with him and that his brothers were exposed to tear gas with one being hit by rubber bullets.

Yoder said he wore a George Washington costume as seen in one Newsweek article titled: “George Washington Says if Capitol Rioters wanted Trouble There’d Be ‘Piles of Bodies.” (Seen below)

Footage from the Capitol building’s cameras affirmed Yoder’s testimony showing Yoder in his colonial outfit entering through a west facing door and leaving the same one 18 minutes later.

According to a complaint from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Yoder committed multiple violations against United States Code while at the Capitol:

  • (Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building, in violation of Title 18, United States
    Code, Section 1752(a)(1))
  • (Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building, in violation of Title 18,
    United States Code, Section 1752(a)(2))
  • (Violent Entry and Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building, in violation of Title 40,
    United States Code, Section 5104 (e)(2)(D))
  • (Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building, in violation of Title 40, United States Code, Section 5104 (e)(2)(G))

A warrant for Yoder’s arrest was served on Wednesday, August 4th at Springfield, Missouri.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday nominated Cole Finegan, a former Denver city attorney who once served under Democratic governors John Hickenlooper and Roy Romer, to be the next U.S. attorney for the District of Colorado.

Finegan, currently a managing partner at Denver’s Hogan Lovells law firm, beat out two other finalists — Denver City Attorney Kristin Bronson and Hetal Doshi, a federal prosecutor — for the region’s top federal law enforcement position.

The White House, in a statement announcing eight other nominations for U.S. attorney positions around the country, said confirming these prosecutors will be critical for addressing the uptick in gun violence over the past 18 months.

Finegan is a veteran of Democratic politics in Colorado going back decades.
