Bethany children's hospital puts on prom for patients
KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — There is a cost to war — to the countries that wage it, to the soldiers who fight it, to the civilians who endure it. For nations, territory is gained and lost, and sometimes regained and lost again. But some losses are permanent. Lives lost can never be regained. Nor can limbs. And so it is in Ukraine. The stories of the people who undergo amputations during conflict are as varied as their wounds, as are their journeys of reconciliation with their injuries. For some, losing
PRAIRIE CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa is the first state in the nation to require most gas stations to sell fuel with at least 15% ethanol under a bill signed Tuesday by Gov. Kim Reynolds. Reynolds signed the bill on a farm near Prairie City, about 20 miles east of Des Moines. The Republican governor signed the bill on a flatbed wagon backed by tractors and corn planters, highlighting what she called a victory for Iowa farmers and biofuels advocates. The ethanol industry consumes about half of Iowa's c
QUEBEC — The 11 jurors considering the fate of the accused in Quebec City's Halloween 2020 sword attack that left two people dead and five others injured are deliberating for a third day. Carl Girouard, 26, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of François Duchesne, 56, and Suzanne Clermont, 61, and five counts of attempted murder. Acquittal is not an option because Girouard has admitted to stalking the streets of Old Quebec on Oct. 31, 2020, to murder and maim. The def
A Canadian study looking at some COVID-19 patients who were readmitted during the first years of the pandemic adds to our growing understanding about the virus, says infectious diseases specialist Dr. Isaac Bogoch.
A Ukrainian family is settling in to their new life in Summerside, P.E.I., after staff and management at Atlantic Beef Products helped raise money to bring them here. Anatolii Merdukh has been a temporary foreign worker at the beef plant in Albany for a year, and was on the Island when he first heard the news of Russian troops invading Ukraine in late February. When the war broke out, his wife, Oksana, fled Kyiv immediately with their children, Diana and Arsenii, and the family cat Mikki — cross
With an aging population and a large portion of the riding employed in the health-care sector, Ottawa West-Nepean voters could cast their ballots with health — and especially elder care — at the top of their minds. Suzanne Barnett, a retired nurse who was visiting Britannia Beach with her former colleagues, said four of the five of them had recently lost their family doctors and had struggled to get a new one. "That is the most important thing for me right now: health care, not highways," said B
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas’ highest court on Wednesday upheld a Republican redistricting law that makes it harder for the only Democrat in the state’s congressional delegation to win reelection in a big victory for the GOP. The state Supreme Court declined to declare that overly partisan gerrymandering violates the Kansas Constitution. The ruling sets district boundaries less than a month before the state’s June 10 filing deadline for congressional candidates. Lawsuits over new congressional dis
Three lynx were born at the Montreal Biodôme on May 1 and the kittens and their mother are doing well, the Space for Life said in a statement. The kittens' mother is providing the babies with all the maternal care they need, the statement said. This is the second litter produced by the seven-year-old female and eight-year-old male. Their last litter was in 2016. The Biodôme's staff are strictly adhering to protocol in order to maintain a tranquil environment for the mother to nurse and groom her

Prince Charles has been invested as an extraordinary commander in the Order of Military Merit and laid a wreath at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. The prince and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, also showed support for the people of Ukraine by attending a prayer service at an Orthodox cathedral.
LONDON (AP) — Britain’s inflation rate rose to the highest level in 40 years last month as Russia's war in Ukraine fueled further increases in food and fuel prices. Consumer price inflation accelerated to 9% in the 12 months through April, from 7% the previous month, the Office for National Statistics said Wednesday. That is the highest rate since sometime in 1982, when inflation reached 11%, according to statistical modeling by the ONS. Millions of households across Britain were hit with a 54%

Taxi and limousine fares in Halifax will go up on Tuesday evening for the first time since October 2012, largely due to the price of gas. The increase was recommended in a staff report presented to Halifax regional council on Tuesday. Fares will be raised an average of 12.1 per cent, with a greater impact on shorter trips. Andrea MacDonald, HRM's acting director of buildings and compliance, presented the report to council. She said there have been requests from the industry and individual counci
The acting president of an animal shelter in Labrador says its building is badly in need of renovation to keep animals in need safely in the community. Kelley Pafford, operator of Faiths Haven Animal Shelter in Wabush, said this year's harsh winter was hard on the shelter's structure. In April, the roof partially collapsed, the latest in a series of incidents at the building, some of which she says have put animals in danger. "In January or February month, we came in twice and our heaters had ju

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's highest court ruled Wednesday that Republican Gov. Bill Lee's school voucher program does not violate the state's constitution, clearing the path for families to soon use taxpayer dollars on private schools. The Tennessee Supreme Court's 3-2 decision overturns several lower court rulings that had previously determined the program violated the Tennessee Constitution’s “home rule,” which says the Legislature can’t pass measures singling out individual counties w
A movement called No Mow May has encouraged people to skip the lawnmower this month and let their grass grow long. But many conservationists say there's more people can do to help pollinators, such as bees, butterflies and moths, get access to nectar year-round. "Nova Scotia seems to have a love affair with lawns," said Marian Whitcomb, a native habitat reconstructionist in Baddeck. Instead of a green monoculture peppered with yellow dandelions, Whitcomb has a different vision for her yard — a w
Prince Edward Islanders may be starting to think about leaving their vehicles in the driveway more often, but they won't be able to entirely avoid the impact of high prices for gas and diesel. Prices have been breaking records throughout the spring. Gas, at $2.108, is sitting at a record high. Diesel, at $2.424, is down from a record high at the end of April but still 90 per cent higher than it was a year ago. Mike Cassidy, owner of T3 Transit, said he is seeing signs that Islanders are making t
A former Regina doctor accused of sexually assaulting five women has been found not guilty of all charges. There was silence in the courtroom at Regina Court of Queen's Bench Wednesday as Justice Brian Scherman read his decision. The trial began in January and included testimony from five women, as well as Ukabam, who said during the trial he was shocked about the accusations. The Crown alleged the former gastroenterologist sexually assaulted five patients during medical exams between 2010 and 2
