WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden launched into his second year in office Thursday with a new focus on making fatigued Americans believe they’re better off under his leadership as he embraces a pared-back agenda before the midterm elections. The persistence of the coronavirus, rising inflation and congressional gridlock have exacted a bitter toll on Biden’s approval rating and threaten a midterm routing for his party, but the president sees no need for a major shift in direction. Instead, Bi

He was 68. Anderson died at a hospital in Las Vegas of complications from cancer, said Glenn Schwartz, his longtime publicist.

The CEO of Island Waste Management Corporation says the annual Christmas tree pick up is being delayed by winter weather. Karen MacDonald said large snow storms the past two weekends have made collection a challenge, and that they're continuing the collection when weather permits. "It does make it difficult because sometimes you find that they've been covered in snow," she said. Trees can't be under the snow or frozen to the ground, and large trees must be cut in half, said MacDonald. Anyone loo
