HOLD YOUR HORSES
DEKALB, Ga. (AP) — Drivers had to hold their horses after several equine invaders travelled down a major road in Georgia. Ten horses who escaped from Little Creek Horse Farm decided to take to the streets and ended up blocking traffic on Highway 78 near North DeKalb Mall over the weekend. Traffic came to a standstill as police blocked off the road to make sure both motorists and the horses were safe before the road was reopened.
VOTE COMMENT APOLOGY
UNDATED (AP) —Hillary Clinton says she meant no disrespect when she said some women voters are more swayed by men. She took to Facebook last weekend to explain comments she made during an interview in India last week. That’s when she said Democrats “do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women. And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should”. The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate wrote that as much as she hates the possibility, “it’s not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance – even within the same household.” Clinton said she did not realize how hard it would hit many who heard it.
FBI GOLD HUNT
DENTS RUN, Pa. (AP) — The FBI has come up empty at the rural Pennsylvania site where Civil War gold is rumored to be buried. State officials and members of a treasure-hunting group joined the FBI at the site where local lore has it a gold shipment was lost or hidden during the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg. The FBI said it conducted a “court-authorized excavation” at Dents Run, a heavily forested area about 135 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. The FBI isn’t confirming that its dig had anything to do with the legendary Civil War treasure. But the agency says it didn’t find whatever it was looking for. The FBI won’t release additional details, saying the dig was related to an “ongoing investigation.”
