TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Former New Jersey Gov. James Florio, who championed a plan that substantially raised the state’s sales and income taxes leading to his reelection defeat in 1993, died Sunday. He was 85. His law partner Doug Steinhardt and current New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy confirmed Florio died in statements on Monday. “Governor Florio was a fighter who never backed down.

China's consistent position is to maintain stability in the Korean peninsula, its foreign ministry said on Wednesday, after South Korean media reported that North Korea may conduct a nuclear test in coming months.

Democratic U.S. Representative Val Demings enters the final weeks of her campaign to unseat Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio in a stronger position than many observers had expected in conservative-leaning Florida. Demings, a former Orlando police chief, is the underdog against Rubio, who is seeking his third six-year term in the Senate and ran unsuccessfully for the 2016 Republican U.S. presidential nomination. President Joe Biden, a Democrat, plans on Tuesday to make his first trip of this election cycle to Florida, where much of his attention is expected to be focused on DeSantis, a potential rival for the White House in 2024.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Florida residents rushed to board up their homes, stash precious belongings on upper floors and flee from oncoming Hurricane Ian, fearing the monstrous storm that knocked out power to all of Cuba and its 11 million people would slam into their state's west coast with catastrophic winds and flooding on Wednesday. “You can’t do anything about natural disasters,” said Vinod Nair, who drove inland from the Tampa area Tuesday with his wife, son, dog and two kittens seeking

Allan DeYoung spent the days after post-tropical storm Fiona sifting through tarps and tent poles, cleaning up the debris from a tent left behind by a young woman who lived next to him. DeYoung counts himself as one of the luckier people living rough. He stays in a well-kept small wooden shelter with a locking door and window, tucked away in the woods in Dartmouth. He stayed dry and safe through the storm, but some of the people who were tenting near him in the wooded area lost everything. "So a
PHOENIX (AP) — Long before he assembled one of the largest far-right anti-government militia groups in U.S. history, before his Oath Keepers stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Stewart Rhodes was a promising Yale Law School graduate. He secured a clerkship on the Arizona Supreme Court, in part thanks to his unusual life story: a stint as an Army paratrooper cut short by a training accident, followed by marriage, college and an Ivy League law degree. The clerkship was one more rung up from
Flipping through her high school yearbook doesn't spark nostalgia in Janaye Majer. "Memories I don't miss at all," she said of her time at Queen Elizabeth Secondary. Majer, who is Black, says she was bullied and targeted with racial slurs at the Surrey, B.C., high school. Over the years, she says she was subjected to the N-word and told "really derogatory racial things about myself." "I was told to kill myself and just very terrible things that I had to go through." Majer says, in her case, teac
BURNT ISLANDS, N.L. — Paula Keeping pointed to the window that was once her son's bedroom. It lay on top of the crumpled remains of her former house, a mess of wood siding and household items in the middle of a road. The debris was piled metres away from where the house stood last week before post-tropical storm Fiona blasted the southwestern Newfoundland community of Burnt Islands. "I figure my kitchen is out where my porch is too," she said. "It's devastating. Just in disbelief." Keeping said
Every Sunday afternoon a group of bears sets out on a nature walk in a different part of the city. Except, they're not the kind with big teeth and claws. They're men who identify with the term commonly used in the gay community to describe bigger men with a lot of body hair. Alex Johnston started the "Outdoor Bears" group, as they call themselves, five years ago to meet others who enjoy outdoor activities. It started with regular outings to skate on the Rideau Canal. But when COVID hit, the grou
In his dining room in Cochrane, Atla., Dan Kroffat watches a YouTube video of an old Stampede Wrestling match. The 77-year-old former professional wrestler was part of the tour in the 1970s. He travelled far and wide across the Prairies with Stampede Wrestling. "I would travel to different towns, Saskatoon, Regina, Edmonton, Lethbridge and other cities and towns as well. So it was a hectic, hectic schedule, if you will, but the show was very vibrant," he said. "People saw us on the streets and t
