Pence family's failed gas stations cost taxpayers $20M+

GARDEN CITY, Ind. (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence turns nostalgic when he talks about growing up in small-town Columbus, Indiana, where his father helped build an empire of more than 200 gas stations that provided an upbringing on the "front row of the American dream." The collapse of Kiel Bros. Oil Co. in 2004 was widely publicized. Less known is that the state of Indiana — and, to a smaller extent, Kentucky...

Puerto Ricans cheer return of electricity but remain wary

ADJUNTAS, Puerto Rico (AP) — It was finally a night to celebrate in this village tucked into the mountains of central Puerto Rico. People pressed TV remote buttons, clicked on fans and plugged in refrigerators as electricity again flowed into homes that had been without power since two major hurricanes devastated the U.S. territory nearly a year ago. Lights are slowly coming on for the more than 950 homes and businesses across Puerto Rico that remain without power in hard-to-reach areas. Repair crews are sometimes forced to dig holes by hand and scale down steep mountainsides to reach damaged light posts. Electrical poles have to be ferried in one-by-one via helicopter. It is slow work, and it has...

Dems: Novartis deal with Cohen sought access to policymakers

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was in frequent contact with top officials of pharmaceutical giant Novartis as part of a $1.2 million consulting deal, and the Swiss-based company expected him to provide access to Trump administration policymakers, according to a report Friday by a group of Senate Democrats. The report does not provide any evidence that Cohen approached Trump or other administration officials on behalf of companies that hired him as a consultant after Trump's election in November 2016. But it offers new details about Cohen's interactions with top Novartis officials, as seen in emails made public, and hints of Cohen's efforts to persuade...

FDA OKs 1st drug to treat smallpox, in case of terror attack

U.S. regulators Friday approved the first treatment for smallpox — a deadly disease that was wiped out four decades ago — in case the virus is used in a terror attack. Smallpox, which is highly contagious, was eradicated worldwide by 1980 after a huge vaccination campaign. But people born since then haven't been vaccinated, and small samples of the smallpox virus were saved for research purposes, leaving the...
