Disneyland visitor had measles, may have exposed others

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County health officials say a visitor to Disneyland this month may have exposed others to measles.

The Department of Public Health says a county resident with a confirmed case of measles visited the theme park on Oct. 16 from 9:15 a.m. to 8:35 p.m.

Earlier that morning, the person was at a Starbucks on the west side of Los Angeles.

Health officials says anyone who was at those locations at those times may be at risk of developing measles for up to 21 days.

Those people should check their medical records to determine if they were immunized or had measles previously.

There have 19 measles cases among Los Angeles County residents in 2019 and 11 cases among non-residents who traveled through... Read More

Ronaldo asks US court to dismiss rape case or OK mediation

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Cristiano Ronaldo’s lawyers are asking a U.S. judge to dismiss a Nevada woman’s lawsuit alleging the soccer star raped her in Las Vegas in 2009 or to order closed-door settlement talks.

Attorneys representing Ronaldo’s accuser, Kathryn Mayorga, didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to messages seeking comment about Oct. 14 court filings in the case stemming from a 2010 confidentiality agreement and a $375,000 hush-money payment.

Ronaldo’s lawyer in Las Vegas, Peter Christiansen, declined comment.

Ronaldo’s attorneys maintain Ronaldo had consensual sex with Mayorga.

A federal judge hasn’t set a hearing date on the bid to stop court proceedings and invoke a settlement provision calling for private mediation.

The Associated Press generally doesn’t name people who say they’re victims of sexual assault, but Mayorga gave consent through her lawyers to be named... Read More

Sword & Shield: Raiders remember legend Willie Brown

OAKLAND, Calif. (KLAS) — The Raiders are mourning the loss of legend Willie Brown. He passed away Tuesday at the age of 78.

Brown played professionally for 16 seasons, splitting his career between the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. He entered the NFL as an undrafted player from Grambling State University in Louisiana.

Brown had two Super Bowl wins under his belt, including Super Bowl 11, when he made a famous move that sealed the Raiders’ victory. He returned an interception for a 75-yard touchdown.

The Raiders remembered honored his legacy and released a statement, saying, “Willie Brown will forever be cherished as a true Raider. He exemplified the Raider spirit. His legendary performance on the field changed the way the cornerback position was played. Willie’s loss will leave a tremendous void, but his leadership and presence will always be a major part of the fabric of the Raiders family.”... Read More

Trump says Turkey calls cease-fire ‘permanent’

WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) — President Donald Trump is giving an update on the current situation in Syria.

President Donald Trump says Turkey has informed the U.S. it will make “permanent” a five-day cease-fire in Syria. In response, he says he’s directing the lifting of economic sanctions on Turkey.

Claiming success at the U.S.-brokered effort, Trump said Wednesday, “this was an outcome created by us.” The cease-fire required Kurdish forces formerly allied with the U.S. against the Islamic State group to move out of a roughly 20-mile (32-kilometer) zone on the Turkish border.

Trump says, “We’ve saved the lives of many, many Kurds.”

Trump says nearly all U.S. troops will be leaving Syria but some will remain to safeguard oil fields in Syria. Russian forces have since begun joint patrols with Kurdish forces along the Turkish-Syrian border.

Trump says if Turkey breaches the cease-fire the sanctions could be reimposed... Read More

Murder probe in Britain after 39 dead found in back of truck

LONDON (AP) — Police in southeastern England launched a murder investigation after 39 people were found dead early Wednesday inside a large cargo truck that authorities believe was registered in Bulgaria and came into the country via Ireland.

The truck, which British police said entered the U.K. on Saturday via the Welsh port of Holyhead, was found across the country at the Waterglade Industrial Park in Grays, a town 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of London on the River Thames.

Police did not formally tie the deaths to human trafficking but a link was assumed because of the way the victims were crammed into the truck’s container. The truck’s apparently circuitous route into and around Britain also raised suspicions among shipping experts.

A 25-year-old-man from Northern Ireland who was driving the truck was arrested on suspicion of murder, police said. He has not been charged or identified... Read More

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — If you’re in the mood for some fresh veggies, fruits, and herbs, don’t miss the largest student-run farmers market in the country. It’s taking place in Las Vegas Wednesday morning.
