A few months after Danny Gaulton moved to Alberta, he disappeared. The 26-year-old from Labrador West just finished school, and moved to Grande Prairie, Alta. to find a new job as a correctional officer. That was in 1997 — he hasn't been seen or heard from since. "It really began a nightmare that has just continued to this day," said Gaulton's youngest sister, Valerie Champion, in an interview with Labrador Morning. "It's like there's a part of our lives that have stood still since that moment a
BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Biden administration officials are toughening their language toward NATO ally Turkey as they try to talk Turkish President Recep Erdogan out of launching a bloody and destabilizing ground offensive against American-allied Kurdish forces in neighboring Syria. Since Nov. 20, after six people died in an Istanbul bombing a week before that Turkey blamed, without evidence, on the U.S. and its Kurdish allies in Syria, Turkey has launched cross-border airstrikes, rockets and s

Samson the Newfoundland is the sweetest most gentle giant, but when he’s hungry for dinner, he tends to use his giant bark to his advantage. His sweet and polite little Cavalier King Charles brother doesn’t know what to do and tries to quiet Samson down so they can both eat! Very chaotic, but so worth it!
TORONTO — It's that much harder for celebrities to escape the glare of the spotlight when social media has given them a direct line to the public's adoration — and acrimony. The online overexposure has driven some A-listers to go on social media hiatus or log off permanently in the name of preserving their mental health. "Spider-Man" star Tom Holland told his tens of millions of followers on Instagram last summer that reading about himself online is "very detrimental to my mental state." His onl
When 16-year-old Jaida Lee of St. John's played in the male baseball competition at the Canada Summer Games in August, she knew she was making history. What she didn't expect was the ball she used for her first pitch would eventually make it into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. "I didn't really think they were being serious," said Lee, standing beside the display case at the Hall of Fame in St. Mary's, Ont. "I definitely didn't expect it." Lee made baseball history at the Canada Summer Games

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Republican John Duarte defeated Democrat Adam Gray on Friday in a new California U.S. House district in the Central Valley farm belt that produced the closest congressional contest in the state this year. With virtually all of the ballots counted, Duarte has just over 50% of the vote. Gray conceded in a statement, saying, “I accept the results and have called to congratulate my opponent.” “This was one of the closest races in the country. More than 130,000 ballots were cast, a
Canada's Mathias Guillemette took silver in the men's elimination race in the fourth round of the UCI Track Champions League in London, England on Friday. The Trois-Rivières, Que., native outlasted 16 other competitors before ultimately falling to American Gavin Hoover.

HALIFAX — An environmental charity and the Membertou First Nation in Cape Breton are partnering to create electric lobster boats on the East Coast, saying it's the way of the future if Canada is to meet its zero-emission targets. Oceans North announced Thursday it is working on the project with the Mi'kmaq community's fisheries and boatbuilding corporations, based in Sydney, N.S. Hubert Nicholas, the director of fisheries at Membertou, said in an interview the new boats will likely be costlier t
When Nicaragua's boxing great Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez struts into a glitzy U.S. ring bidding to become six-time world champion on Saturday, he will also represent a vast sporting project of another man: authoritarian President Daniel Ortega. A small fighter renowned for his blistering speed and willingness to wear the Sandinista flag stitched to his boxing shorts, Gonzalez, 35, is looking to the fight in Glendale, Arizona to cement his legacy by snatching the WBC Super Flyweight title in his third bout against old foe Juan Francisco Estrada. For Ortega, a Gonzalez victory and a televised hero's welcome could offer a distraction from rising discontent due to soaring inflation, widespread repression and the country's international isolation.
The emergency departments at two New Brunswick hospitals will be operating at "very reduced capacity" through Monday, according to a news release from Vitalité Health Network.

A woman in western Newfoundland believes online thieves have taken most of her savings, after the money started to disappear from her account earlier this year. Bernetta Serrick checked her account balance on a mobile banking app on a Friday in mid-August. She says she was baffled to see her money had been going missing in large sums. "I seen all these transactions, $5,000 here, $4,000-something here, going different places," she said. She waited until her local Bank of Montreal branch opened th

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — American soccer success in the World Cup remains a dream. The U.S. team looked better in this year's World Cup, but the results were the same as in 2010 and 2014. The Americans were eliminated in the round of 16 following a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Saturday. “We’ve shown that we can compete with top-tier teams and we just want to change the narrative because we think, obviously, over the past years we haven’t gotten enough respect for U.S. soccer and for the way that w
