Officers responded around 10:30 a.m. to a 911 call for the attack at the Kearny store, on Harrison Avenue, local police said.

Responding officers found the man inside the store with a deep wound to the back of his head, police said.

According to one Walmart employee, who did not wish to be identified, managers told workers to leave the store and wait in the parking lot.

Employees remained in the store parking lot over two hours later Friday afternoon as detectives and officers continued their investigation inside.

Mechanicville man charged with multiple drug, firearm offenses

PHOENIX (AP) — A Republican-backed review of the 2020 presidential election in Arizona’s largest county ended Friday without producing proof to support former President Donald Trump’s false claims of a stolen election.

After six months of searching for evidence of fraud, the firm hired by Republican lawmakers issued a report that experts described as riddled with errors, bias and flawed methodology. Still, even that partisan review came up with a vote tally that would not have altered the outcome, finding that Biden won by 360 more votes than the official results certified last year.

‘The View’ hosts test COVID-positive minutes before Harris interview

NEW YORK (KRON) — Two hosts of “The View” discovered they tested positive for COVID just minutes before Vice President Kamala Harris was set to come out for a live interview. The incident unfolded in front of the cameras during Friday morning’s live show.

During the broadcast, co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were instructed to leave the set by an off-camera crew member. “We’re going to bring you back later,” the crew member says, indicating that “more information” would be provided to the audience soon.

Co-host Joy Behar then asks if she should introduce Harris, but is instructed not to do so.

After a break, Behar and Sara Haines were seated in the center of the desk, where Behar explained that Hostin and Navarro had tested positive for COVID. “No matter how hard we try, these things happen,” Behar explained. “They probably have a breakthrough case and they’ll probably be OK because they’re both vaccinated up the wazoo.”

Harris’ interview was set to be her first live, in-studio appearance since she became VP, according to a promo tweeted by “The View.” The vice president instead conducted her interview from a separate location in the building, while Behar and Haines remained on the set.

“I hope that you’re in a safe spot right now,” Behar told Harris during the interview, which was conducted remotely. “We did everything we could to make sure you were safe because we value you so much.”

Harris thanked the producers, but said the incident speaks to the effectiveness of vaccination. “Sunny and Ana are strong women and I know they’re fine, but it really also does speak to the fact that they’re vaccinated and vaccines really make all the difference. Because otherwise, we would be concerned about hospitalization and worse.”

Be patient when ordering Colorado’s free at-home COVID tests, state health department says

Because of high demand, Coloradans who order free at-home COVID-19 testing kits through the state might have to wait up to two weeks for confirmation they’re in the program, the state health department said Friday.

On Tuesday, Gov. Jared Polis announced the state will give away 2 million at-home testing kits to any residents who sign up. The rapid tests are designed for regular screening, not as a substitute for lab-based testing if you have symptoms.

Some people who tried to order the tests have taken to social media to complain about delays. A spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment confirmed it can take anywhere from seven to 14 days for people to receive a confirmation email after signing up. The confirmation email includes a link to order the kits, and attempting to order without it will produce an “error” message, she said.

Denver DA won’t charge Tay Anderson, records show school board spent $190,000 on investigation

Denver DA won’t charge Tay Anderson, records show school board spent $190,000 on investigation

Denver’s district attorney this week declined to file criminal charges against Tay Anderson as documents show Denver Public Schools spent more than $190,000 on its investigation that did not substantiate sexual assault allegations against the school board member.

The Denver Police Department brought a sexual assault case against Anderson to the district attorney’s office, but after reviewing the facts, prosecutors decided Thursday they would be unable to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury, said Carolyn Tyler, a spokeswoman for District Attorney Beth McCann.

“Today, DPD Detective Curtis Johnson confirmed to me that their investigations into Director Anderson have been presented to the Denver DA’s office, who has declined to file any charges,” Christopher Decker, Anderson’s attorney, said in an email.

Anderson, 23, repeatedly has denied all sexual assault allegations.

Meanwhile, the DPS Board of Directors spent $192,004 on its investigation, which was launched in April, according to documents obtained by The Denver Post through a Colorado Open Records Act request.

The largest amount was paid to Investigations Law Group, the outside firm hired in April to investigate sexual assault and harassment allegations against Anderson. But the board also used a public relations firm and another law firm to help it navigate the crisis, invoices from the three firms show.

The invoices show:

  • Investigations Law Group received $160,365 for its work, which lasted from early April through mid-September
  • Rockford Gray, the PR firm, was paid $25,758, with the largest bill coming in April when the crisis started. That month’s invoice was $13,737.
  • Caplan and Earnest, a Boulder law firm that advises educational institutions, received $5,880

The investigative report, which was released Sept. 15, found that all sexual assault allegations against Anderson were unsubstituted, including claims by a woman who testified before the state legislature that a predator in the school district had preyed on dozens of students. The school board later said she was referring to Anderson, and the investigators concluded the woman was not credible. No victims ever came forward.

Northern Colorado football: Prediction for UNC vs Northern Arizona

Northern Colorado football: Prediction for UNC vs Northern Arizona

The University of Northern Colorado (1-2) returns to Nottingham Field on Saturday to play Northern Arizona (1-2) in its Big Sky opener.

Both teams would like to start the conference slate with a win, but it could go either way. The Bears are looking for redemption after lackluster play against Lamar last week, while the Lumberjacks are coming off a win and want to maintain momentum.

Northern Colorado 18 – Northern Arizona 21

The Bears’ conference opener will likely be a close one that could swing either way, but UNC’s limited personnel may impact the team’s ability to grab the win.

Northern Colorado expects to be down about 25% of its players and several coaches due to COVID-19 protocols. The university believes these were false positives, but the affected players and coaches still have to quarantine and will not be available this week.

Graduate quarterback Dylan McCaffrey will be back, though. He was cleared this week after he was removed in the second half of the Houston Baptist game. Having McCaffrey and junior Conner Martin ready to go — as opposed to relying only on Martin — could give the offense some variety.

On paper, the teams look similar. Their average total offense hovers around 300 yards, the defenses log about 66 tackles per game and they both average more than 55 yards in penalties across the first three contests. They also struggle on fourth down.

UNC is stronger on its return game, sacks (10) and field goals. The NAU offense, however, is better when converting on third down, moving the chains 41% of the time.

Ultimately, the defenses should put together similar performances, so the result will likely come down to a little bit of luck, whichever offense gets into a rhythm, and the team that plays the hardest.

“I’m more concerned with us, the mistakes that we made previously, correcting those and just making sure we don’t make the same mistakes again,” UNC coach Ed McCaffrey said Wednesday during his weekly news conference. “I think the effort will be there. I think our guys have a good attitude, good mindset … but it also takes execution of the plays that we’re calling offensively. It takes making plays on defense in crucial moments when we need them.”

“We know it may feel frustrating to hear about cases increasing again, and sadly hearing about a rising number of hospitalizations and news like today’s as we lose people we care about,” said Rachel Seeber, Chairwoman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors. “We are asking our community to do what you do best  – keep working together, keep encouraging each other to get vaccinated, wear your masks, maintain social distance and keep sharing factual information.” 

The county confirmed 20 new cases and 32 recoveries on Friday, adding up to a case total of 199 active cases.

Eight of those were hospitalized as of Friday, down by two from Thursday.

Another death reported in Warren County COVID update for Sept

All of Friday’s cases involved community spread, four coming from school districts. Those included the communities of Queensbury, Lake George North Warren and Glens Falls school districts.

Meanwhile, the county also mentioned having seen two hospitalizations of Warren County coronavirus patients under the age of 40 just in the last week.

“Seeking treatment quickly is extremely important to avoid serious, life-threatening illness with COVID-19,” said Warren County Health Services Director Ginelle Jones. “We have been seeing more and more younger people hospitalized with serious COVID-19 illness, including two in their 30s this week, and consultation with a physician or medical expert is necessary no matter your age, vaccination status or health history.”

Eleven of Friday’s new cases were among those who had been fully vaccinated for coronavirus.

To date, 405 of Warren County’s 43,148 fully vaccinated residents have tested positive for coronavirus after vaccination.

Upcoming coronavirus vaccine clinics include one on Friday, Sept. 24 from 2-3:30 p.m. and Monday, Sept. 27 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at SUNY Adirondack’s student center building, only for SUNY Adirondack students and staff; and the next two Tuesdays, Sept. 28 and Oct. 5, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Warren County Municipal Center.
