DEVELOPING: Sheriff’s official says a suspect has been arrested after a stabbing attack at a Houston-area community college campus left 14 people injured, including 12 that required hospitalization. At least a few victims are listed in critical condition.
Lone Star community college’s campus in Cypress posted an alert on its website just before 12 p.m. warning students of two armed suspects and saying one person remains at large. The alert warned people to seek shelter in a secure location.
Alan Bernstein of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office says authorities have one suspect in custody.
A different Lone Star system campus was the site of a January shooting. Two people were wounded, and a 22-year-old man was charged with aggravated assault.

PNP comment: Boy does this article lean so far in favor of the Unions, I think it is about to fall over. Hum, something tells me there is much more to this story than Union leaders whinning! Union leaders have way too much power causing havoc to the economy. — Editor Liz Bowen

Calling Turtle Bay’s prevailing wage court challenge a battle between the park and the law, labor groups vowed Wednesday to fight to protect taxpayers.
“Turtle Bay is attempting to profit from a private venture without some of the risks normally associated with such a venture,” Andrew Meredith of the Northeastern California Building and Construction Trades Council said at a press conference.
The unions were responding to Turtle Bay Exploration Park’s announcement on Tuesday that it will file a writ in Shasta County Superior Court to overturn a state mandate that workers building the proposed Sheraton hotel be paid prevailing wage.

Yesterday was a shock for all of us, including me. I didn’t realize the domain name was about to expire on Pie N Politics.com. Luckily, Go Daddy keeps the hosting going for 10 days.
And I must say, Go Daddy got the website back up very quickly.
I am sorry for the confusion and do appreciate your continued support.

The Klamath County Board of Commissioners’ voted unanimously yesterday to discontinue support of the Klamath Hydro Settlement Agreement (KHSA) and the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA).
We believe a comprehensive settlement of water related issues is still critical to our economic and social benefit.
Each of us, as individual commissioners elected to represent the citizens of Klamath County, have our own views about the weaknesses and strengths of the KBRA/KHSA process. Likewise, every stakeholder is free to have its views on the process.
However, as a Board, we do not believe Klamath County should continue to participate as a signatory to the KBRA/KHSA.
