SUMMARY: Jim Beam's column expresses concern over the delay of U.S. military aid to Ukraine by Republicans in the House of Representatives, drawing parallels with the period before the U.S. entered World War II when Britain urgently needed American support. The article recounts the history of the Lend-Lease Program, which allowed the United States to supply Allied nations with war materials, highlighting President Roosevelt's decisive action to aid Britain despite American isolationist sentiment at the time. Beam criticizes current GOP leaders for lacking Roosevelt's visionary leadership and implication of the risks posed by withholding support from Ukraine, including the possibility of Russia securing a victory that might embolden further territorial ambitions, emphasizing the urgency and broader implications of the United States' response to the conflict in Ukraine.

Champagne, who was on a meth binge, had stolen a crawfish truck, then a BMW, before targeting the school for another vehicle. Classes were canceled during the search utilizing drones and helicopters.

SUMMARY: Nathaniel Mitchell III's life sentence for the murder of Zacchaeus Hakim Burton in 2019 will remain. Mitchell killed Burton and burned his body in DeQuincy, a fact supported by co-defendant George Buck's testimony and corroborating evidence such as phone records and surveillance. Mitchell bought a gun before committing the crime, as testified by Buck. Despite claims of trial errors and ineffective counsel, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeal rejected Mitchell's appeals, stating there was no evidence to suggest the inclusion of certain evidence or counsel's actions prejudiced the trial's outcome. Mitchell was convicted on October 3, 2022, of second-degree murder and sentenced to life without parole.
