Mexico’s Supreme Court has ruled that the armed forces do not have to advise civilian police when they make an arrest. The issue is a sensitive one, because Mexico’s military is supposed to be participating in civilian law enforcement only as ‘support’ for police. But the court ruled Tuesday that soldiers can make an arrest with telling police, as long as they register the arrest later in a computer system that civilian agencies use. The armed forces have frequently been accused of violating human rights. But Mexico’s underpaid, antiquated police forces can’t handle the country’s well-armed drug cartels alone.
Unless you have been waking up before dawn to watch the Australian Open, or you happen to be a diehard Florida Gators tennis fan, you probably have been missing the emergence of Ben Shelton, one of the most compelling stories in American tennis in a long time.
Drag queens in full makeup and dozens of other advocates are rallying against Missouri bills aimed at transgender children and drag shows. A House committee debated the measures Tuesday. Bills under consideration would ban transgender girls from playing on girls sports teams. Public K-12 schools would face lawsuits or losing all state funding for violating the policy. Other legislation would prohibit doctors from providing any gender-affirming treatment for transgender minors. Another bill would make it a misdemeanor crime punishable by up to a year in jail for performing in drag in public or where a minor could watch.
The Ohio House has passed internal rules and can now proceed with its work despite an ongoing fight over power within the fractured GOP supermajority. That infighting spurred competing claims about who’s leading House Republicans, shouting by lawmakers during Tuesday’s session and even talk of a possible lawsuit. The evident disunity in what would usually be an uneventful vote on rules amplifies questions about how House lawmakers will function in this two-year session. Usually one person is chosen as both House speaker and Republican caucus chair. This time it’s two different lawmakers, each backed by some of the House GOP members.
Florida to ‘curb’ diversity efforts at universities, Lt. Gov. Nunez says
Miami Marlins chairman and principal owner Bruce Sherman in a statement Tuesday refuted a report in the Los Angeles Times that the Marlins “could go up for sale soon.”
The New Orleans Pelicans say Zion Williamson is expected to be out at least two more weeks following a re-evaluation of his right hamstring injury. The club says Williamson appears to be “healing as expected” from the Jan. 2 injury and “making good progress with his recovery.” But the team says he needs to continue strengthening his hamstring and gradually progress to more movement. Tuesday night’s home game against Denver was Williamson’s 11th straight out of the lineup. Green also has ruled out Brandon Ingram against the Nuggets because of a large left toe injury that has now sidelined him for 29 straight games. But Green says the Pelicans are “definitely hopeful” that Ingram will return this week.
Georgia has made its most extensive comments on the car crash that killed football player Devin Willock and a recruiting staff member. Athletic director Josh Brooks says they were not on department business at the time of the incident, which occurred shortly after the Bulldogs celebrated their second straight national title. The fatal wreck also left offensive lineman Warren McClendon with minor injuries and seriously injured another member of the recruiting staff. The Jan. 15 incident has raised questions about the relationships between athletes and those who work in the athletic department.
The mishandling of classified documents is not a problem unique to President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump. At least three presidents, a vice president, a secretary of state and an attorney general have all been tripped up. The issue of classified records and who, exactly, has hung onto them has gotten more complicated as news surfaced Tuesday that former Vice President Mike Pence also had such records in his possession after he left office. As in Biden’s case, lawyers for Pence say he willingly turned the documents over to authorities. The latest discoveries lay bare an uncomfortable truth about the nation’s secrets: Policies meant to control the handling of sensitive information are haphazardly enforced among top officials.
New research on LGBTQ parents in Florida found that a majority of those surveyed considered leaving the state over its controversial law restricting classroom instruction on LGBTQ issues before the fourth grade.
Scott Rolen vacuumed almost every ball that got hit in his direction in a 17-year major-league career spent with four teams, including the Phillies.
A prosecutor says the man who killed eight people on a Manhattan bike path five years ago in a bid to impress a terrorist group was happy with himself when he met FBI agents later that day. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Richman told a Manhattan federal court jury Tuesday in closing arguments that Sayfullo Saipov was smiling and proud after the Oct. 31, 2017 attack with a rented truck. Richman urged them to convict Saipov of all charges. A defense lawyer, though, said they should at least spare his client on a racketeering charge by rejecting the prosecution’s claim that he killed people so he could join the Islamic State group.
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — The Newport News School Board will vote Wednesday evening on the firing of Superintendent George Parker and appointment of an interim leader.
Twenty states sued the Department of Homeland Security and its leadership Tuesday over a humanitarian parole program the Biden administration hopes will reduce irregular migration from Cuba, Haiti, Venezuela and Nicaragua, arguing that it is a violation of federal immigration law and an over…
The NBA All-Star Game is Feb. 19. And nobody will know the All-Star rosters until that night. Not even the players themselves. The team captains — probably LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and either Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo or Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant — will make their picks in a live, televised pregame segment shortly before the game begins in Salt Lake City. The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association announced the format change on Tuesday night.
The United States and Canada — the two countries most often mentioned as possible leaders of an international armed force to help Haiti combat gangs – are showing no interest in deploying security personnel despite renewed appeals from the United Nations and Haiti for help to end worsening violence in the country. U.S. deputy ambassador Robert Wood told the U.N. Security Council Tuesday that “Haiti must address its continued insecurity challenges.” Canada’s U.N. Ambassador Robert Rae said the world needs to learn from all previous military interventions, which failed to bring long-term stability to Haiti, and ensure that future solutions “must be led by Haitians and by Haitian institutions.”
ATLANTA — Democrats filed identical bills in each chamber of the General Assembly that seek to repeal Georgia’s 2019 abortion law and add the right to the procedure to the state code.
Mexico’s president says his country wants a big chunk of money from former Mexican security official Genaro Garcia Luna. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said his government wants to recover $700 million that García Luna allegedly accumulated as a result of corruption. Formerly the country’s top security officer, Garcia Luna is accused of accepting briefcases full of cash — millions of dollars, in all — to let the notorious Sinaloa cartel operate with impunity as it sent tons of cocaine to the U.S. He served as secretary of public security to then-President Felipe Calderon from 2006 to 2012.

“Annihilation” is less than two minutes away.
A 39-year-old woman was sentenced to three years in prison for luring a former reality TV show star to his death in St. Louis. Terica Ellis was sentenced Tuesday in the 2016 death of 21-year-old Andre Montgomery Jr., who was part of the St. Louis-based reality show “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s.” Prosecutors said Ellis conspired with James “Tim” Norman, who was Montgomery’s uncle. Ellis testified that she didn’t know Norman hired someone to kill Montgomery. Norman is scheduled to be sentenced in March. The man who shot Montgomery, Travell Anthony Hill, was sentenced in October to 32 years in prison.
There are plenty of similarities — but also a major difference — among the classified-records situations of President Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump and Trump’s vice president, Mike Pence. Classified papers have been found at their homes, leading to government investigations that are underway. Biden and Pence say they turned over the papers as soon as they were discovered. Trump resisted.
ATLANTA — Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis suggested Tuesday afternoon that a decision on whether to seek indictments is “imminent” following an eight-month special grand jury investigation into whether former President Donald Trump and his allies criminally meddled in Georgia’s 2…
Alejandro Zendejas insists he isn’t thinking about his future in international soccer beyond his first training camp with the senior U.S. national team this week. Zendejas will allow everybody else to speculate about the long-term home of a talented forward in the middle of a spirited two-nation competition for his services. Zendejas repeatedly dodged and deflected questions Tuesday about both the future and the recent past. Two weeks after Mexico was ordered by FIFA to forfeit the two matches in which Zendejas appeared for El Tri, he could make his senior U.S. men’s team debut Wednesday night.
New Mexico’s top judicial official is urging legislators to be cautious and remember the principle of innocence until proven guilty as they consider toughening the state’s bail laws in response to violent crime. Supreme Court Chief Justice C. Shannon Bacon on Tuesday delivered a State of the Judiciary speech to a joint session of the New Mexico Legislature — the first in several years. Bacon outlined efforts to streamline court procedures to keep more law enforcement officers in communities and on the streets. Lawmakers are grappling with public frustration over violent crime. Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has criticized the current pre-trial detention system.
A Clayton County Democrat has resigned from the Georgia House of Representatives, triggering a March special election. Rep. Mike Glanton, of Jonesboro, served 14 years in the House in two separate stints. The Army veteran and minister stepped down days after being sworn in for an eighth term, according to a proclamation issued Monday by Gov. Brian Kemp, who set the special election for March 21. Candidates from all parties will run against each other, with a runoff later if no candidate earns a majority. Three other House seats and one Senate seat are currently vacant in the General Assembly. Voters could fill all four Jan. 31, or two contests could go to runoffs.
Aaron Rodgers says he hasn’t decided whether to continue playing next season, but is adjusting to the possibility he could end his career somewhere other than Green Bay. The four-time MVP quarterback is still deciding whether he wants to return to the Packers, retire or request a trade. Rodgers also has noted the possibility the Packers might want to trade him and hand the quarterback job to 2020 first-round draft pick Jordan Love.
The United States is providing Haiti with an additional $56.5 million in urgent assistance to help with its deteriorating humanitarian crisis and ongoing cholera epidemic.
The reward has grown to $25,000 in the investigation of the shooting deaths of five wild horses in eastern Nevada in November 2021. The Bureau of Land Management said the five mortally wounded horses were discovered Nov. 16 in Jakes Valley, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Ely. One horse was still alive but wounded so severely it had to be euthanized. The non-profit group Wild Horse Education added $5,000 to the reward this week. The BLM offered an original reward of $5,000 and other groups have contributed to the total, including $10,000 from the National Mustang Association in October.
Four people have been charged in the alleged rape of a Louisiana State University student who authorities say was assaulted, then left in an East Baton Rouge sub-division, where she was then struck and killed by a motor vehicle. Authorities say three men and a 17-year-old were arrested Monday. The 17-year-old’s name is being withheld because he is a juvenile. He and 18-year-old Kaivon Washington stand charged with third-degree rape. Two other men were charged with principle to third-degree rape, meaning they were present but did not take part in the alleged crime. The woman who died was a sophomore at LSU.
A young passenger of an SUV involved in a head-on collision on a Texas highway that left seven others dead remains in critical condition. The Texas Department of Safety said the crash happened Sunday in suburban Comal County, near San Antonio, when a pickup truck veered into an oncoming lane and struck the SUV. Authorities say five of the victims killed were riding in the SUV, including two children and the driver. Both the driver and a passenger in the pickup truck were pronounced dead on the scene. Authorities did not immediately release names or ages of the victims.

Scott Rolen, slick-fielding third baseman with eight Gold Gloves, gains election into baseball’s Hall of Fame.
The New York Mets have signed veteran outfielder Tommy Pham to a one-year contract, adding to their busy offseason. Pham provides depth and a dangerous bat, giving New York a proven fourth outfielder and a right-handed option at designated hitter to complement lefty Daniel Vogelbach. The 34-year-old Pham spent last season with Cincinnati and Boston, batting .236 overall with 17 home runs, 63 RBIs and a .686 OPS. He scored 89 runs in 144 games. Pham made headlines in May when he was suspended for three games by Major League Baseball after he slapped San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson during warmups before a game because of a dispute about their fantasy football league.

Tennessee men’s basketball coach Rick Barnes, former NBA star and Vanderbilt men’s basketball coach Jerry Stackhouse and former PGA Tour golfer Curtis Strange headline this year’s class for the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame. The hall released its 15-member class Tuesday ahead of their formal induction on April 21. The class also includes Bob “Stonewall” Jackson, a World War II veteran who went on to become the first Black player from a historically Black college or university to be drafted by an NFL team.
The Indianapolis Colts still want to interview 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans for their head coach vacancy, and are planning to give Jeff Saturday a second interview along with six or seven other candidates, a person familiar with the team’s plans told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the team is still narrowing its list of coaches for second interviews to seven or eight. Ryans had an interview planned with the Colts last week but had to postpone to focus on preparation for San Francisco’s divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.
A bill to limit certain teachings on race in public schools is moving through the Republican-controlled South Carolina House of Representatives. The proposal is the latest iteration of a GOP-led nationwide effort to crack down on what some conservative politicians have dubbed “critical race theory.” Prohibited ideas include the notion that “an individual, by virtue of the race, sex, ethnicity, religion, color, or national origin of the individual, inherently is privileged, racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or subconsciously.” Proponents say the bill seeks to ensure that teaching is non-biased. Opponents fear the vague language will stifle truthful lessons on American history and create a hostile environment for educators.
