Frozen sausage patties recalled for possible salmonella contamination

CARYVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) — Some frozen sausage patties
sold at Walmart are being pulled off the shelves because of possible salmonella
contamination. George’s Prepared Foods, based in Caryville, Tennessee is
recalling more than six-thousand pounds of ready-to-eat pork and turkey sausage
patty products.

The problem was discovered when the firm notified the U.S. Department
of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service that the firm’s third-party
cold storage facility had inadvertently shipped the ready-to-eat products to
stores. The products were shipped to stores nationwide.

There haven’t been any reports of anyone getting sick. If you
have any of the recalled sausages, you should discard or return them. You can
get more information about the recall at the USDA’s website... Read More

Third suspect arrested in killing of Esmeralda Gonzalez

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Police have arrested a third person connected to the killing of Esmeralda Gonzalez. Police issued an arrest warrant Thursday for 39-year-old Casandra Bascones. Court records show she faces multiple charges including first-degree murder and kidnapping.

She’s the latest suspect in
the case.

45-year-old Christopher Prestipino
and 31-year-old Lisa Mort were also arrested in connection to the murder. Both
appeared in court last week.

Authorities say Esmeralda Gonzalez
was missing for five months before a tip led police to her body earlier this
month. Detectives located it in the desert encased in a homemade concrete and a
wooden structure.

An arrest report revealed
the 24-year-old was a prostitute and hired by Prestipino. After using meth
together in his home, the two argued. Prestipino then strangled her after she
punched him in the face and threatened to call the police... Read More

Researchers find second warship from WWII Battle of Midway

MIDWAY ATOLL, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (AP) — A crew of deep-sea explorers and historians looking for lost World War II warships have found a second Japanese aircraft carrier that went down in the historic Battle of Midway.

Vulcan Inc. director of undersea operations Rob Kraft said a review of sonar data captured Sunday shows what could be either the Japanese carrier Akagi or the Soryu resting in nearly 18,000 feet (5,490 meters) of water in the Pacific Ocean more than 1,300 miles (2,090 kilometers) northwest of Pearl Harbor.

The researchers used an autonomous underwater vehicle, or AUV, equipped with sonar to find the ship. The vehicle had been out overnight collecting data, and the image of a warship appeared in the first set of readings Sunday morning... Read More

Passenger taken to hospital after three-car crash

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) —Early Sunday morning, three cars were involved in a chain-reaction crash that sent one woman to the hospital. It happened on Mandalay Road west of the intersection with Road to Mandalay.

Police say a car driven by 59-year-old Richard Mansapit of Pittsburgh, California rear-ended another car that slowed down for traffic. The force of the crash propelled that car into another one in front that stopped for pedestrians to cross the street.

57-year-old Sheila Mansapit was the passenger of the car that caused the crash. She was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver, Richard Mansapit, showed signs of impairment at the scene and was arrested.

Another person was treated at the scene for minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

Rodgers throws 5 TD passes, Packers gash Raiders 42-24

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers had his best game by far under new Packers coach Matt LaFleur, throwing for 429 yards and five touchdowns and running for another as Green Bay beat the Oakland Raiders 42-24 on Sunday.

Rodgers completed 25 of 31 passes to eight different targets and finished with the first perfect passer rating of his career, leading LaFleur’s offense to a season high in points.

Even with top target Davante Adams sidelined for the third straight game with turf toe, Rodgers threw for his most touchdowns in a game since Sept. 28, 2015, against the Chiefs.

Derek Carr finished 22-for-28 for 293 yards, two touchdowns and two costly turnovers for the Raiders (3-3), who lost their eighth straight against Green Bay, dating back to 1990. The Packers (6-1) have scored 30-plus points in each of their last five games against the Raiders... Read More

HOV lane revisions may come sooner than expected

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Revisions to 24-hour HOV lanes could come sooner than expected after Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced the possibility of a review in 18 months.

The around-the-clock enforcement of HOV lanes has been a source of a lot of complaints. Sisolak clarified why the enforcement was necessary, saying because Project Neon received federal funding, they had to perform 24/7 enforcement for at least three years or jeopardize that funding.

Now, Sisolak says that three years may be cut in half.

Despite the governor’s words, the state department of transportation told the Las Vegas Review-Journal it is sticking to its original plan. ... Read More
