ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Sen. John McCain’s final journey ended Sunday on a grassy hill at the U.S. Naval Academy within view of the Severn River and earshot of midshipmen present and future, and alongside a lifelong friend.
A horse-drawn caisson carrying the senator’s casket led a procession of mourners from the academy’s chapel to its cemetery following a private service. The senator’s widow, Cindy, and his children were among those who walked behind the caisson. Joining them were family and friends as well as members of McCain’s Class of 1958, military leaders and academy midshipmen.

The tide, a wave of microorganisms that choke sea life, hit the Gulf of Mexico last November and now spreads over about 130 miles of Florida’s southwest coast. Gov. Rick Scott has issued a state of emergency for seven counties, where waterways and coastlines are filled with putrid fish floating in brass-colored water.
The red tide also poses a health risk to people. The microorganisms emit brevetoxins, which can get blown into the air. When the toxins are breathed in, they constrict passages in the lungs, causing people to cough and have difficulty breathing.

An Amber Alert was issued Saturday for two young brothers and their biological father missing since the boys’ mother and a male housemate were found fatally shot in the Phoenix home where police said the victims and boys lived.
The alert said 47-year-old Dimas Coronado may have fled to Mexico with the boys, but Sgt. Armando Carbajal, a police spokesman, said investigators had no firm indication of the whereabouts of Coronado or the boys.

Last Man Standing has already recast two of Mike and Vanessa Baxter’s three daughters (most recently casting Molly McCook as Mandy 2.0), and is not about to recast a third. As such, the producers are working hard to accommodate former series regular Kaitlyn Dever, who will return to freshly revived Tim Allen sitcom on a recurring basis.
Executive producer Kevin Abbott confirmed to TVLine (as part of our in-depth Fall Preview) that Dever, who is now attached as a series regular on the upcoming Netflix drama Unbelievable, will appear in at least two episodes of the Last Man revival this fall. She’ll make her first appearance in the Season 7 premiere (airing Friday, Sept. 28 at 8/7c on Fox; watch a promo here).
The Syrian state media says the series of explosions was caused by an electrical fault at an ammunition depot in the area.

MARYLAND — The number of cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis diagnosed in the United States in 2017 went up once again, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported this week. According to preliminary data released by the CDC, nearly 2.3 million cases of the three sexually transmitted diseases were diagnosed in 2017, an increase of more than 200,000 cases compared to 2016.
The State Department announced Friday that the U.S. will end all aid to UNWRA (the United Nations Relief and Works Agency), the U.N. body dedicated to serving Palestinian Arabs it designates as refugees.
If managed carefully, this policy and its follow-up provisions would constitute the only real opportunity to ensure prosperity for Palestinian Arabs, safety for Israel’s citizens and stability for the United States and its regional allies.
The new U.S. policy exposes the absurdity of the perpetual, uninterrupted refugee population increases claimed by UNWRA. It will pour cold water on the idea of a “right of return,” the Palestinian Arab demand that any final status agreement afford 5.3 million Arabs the ability to flood Israel – a country of 8.8 million people, including an existing population of 1.8 million Arabs.
