Forever 21 Clothing Chain Files For Bankruptcy : NPR

Forever 21 — the ubiquitous mall-based fashion retailer aimed at teens, tweens and young adults — filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, joining a growing list of apparel outlets to fall victim to competitive online market pressures.

The California-based company may close up to 178 U.S. stores, according to court records.

In a statement to customers Sunday night, Forever 21 said the bankruptcy move was necessary so it could take “positive steps to reorganize the business so we can return to profitability.”

10 people died of overdoses within 26 hours in one Ohio county – CNN

(CNN)One Ohio county had an “unusually high number” of overdose deaths in a little over a day, the county’s coroner said.

“As of about 10 am this morning we have had 10 people die of overdoses in about 26 hours,” Franklin County Coroner Dr. Anahi Ortiz said on Facebook Sunday.
“I urge friends and family of those who use to make sure you are armed with naloxone,” Ortiz said on Facebook. “Those who use should also test before using with fentanyl testing strips.”
Fentanyl can be mixed with cocaine and methamphetamine to create a deadly combination, the coroner said.
The last peak of overdoses that the coroner’s office posted about was in August 12, when six people died in less than 24 hours.
“The majority of overdose deaths continue to be fentanyl related,” the coroner said in the statement.

Joe Biden’s Campaign Asks Networks to Stop Booking Rudy Giuliani

Two campaign officials sent a letter to the networks complaining that Giuliani is being allowed to spread falsehoods.

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is asking the networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani, writing in a letter that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer “has made very clear that his only obligation is to protect Donald Trump, and that he will willingly lie to do so.”

In a letter to the networks, campaign officials Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield wrote the networks in the letter that “while you have been aggressive in pushing back on him in real time, it is well known that the dedicated liar always has the advantage, pushing out outlandish falsehoods and disinformation in the knowledge that it is hard for the corrections to catch up. Giving Rudy Giuliani valuable time on your air to push these lies in the first place is a disservice to your audience and a disservice to journalism.”

Pittsburgh Pirates fire 9 year manager Clint Hurdle — “an extremely difficult decision”: report

Announcement made Sunday

The Pirates fired manager Clint Hurdle before Sunday’s regular season finale against Cincinnati following a stunning second-half collapse that dropped Pittsburgh to the bottom of the National League Central and included a series of off-the-field issues.

Pittsburgh entered Sunday 69-92, including a 25-47 since the All-Star break.

Hurdle went 735-720 in nine seasons with Pittsburgh, helping the franchise emerge from 20 years of losing to reach the playoffs three straight years from 2013-15. The Pirates never advanced past the Division Series and are assured of a third losing season in their last four years. Hurdle had two years left on an extension he signed in 2017.

Pittsburgh general manager Neal Huntington called it “an extremely difficult decision” for the organization.

Sheriff: 4 inmates escape county jail in Ohio

A sheriff says four inmates have overpowered two corrections officers with a homemade weapon and escaped from a county jail in Ohio.

The Gallia County Sheriff’s Office says the four men forced open a secured door at the jail in Gallipolis, along the Ohio River in southeast Ohio, early Sunday. A sheriff’s release says they had help from at least one person outside the jail.

Authorities say the inmates should be considered dangerous. They’re asking anyone who sees them or knows their location to call 911.

The sheriff’s office says the inmates are 40-year-old Brynn Martin, 24-year-old Christopher Clemente, 30-year-old Troy McDaniel Jr. and 29-year-old Lawrence Lee III. The charges they were being held on weren’t immediately available.

A dispatcher had no information about whether the officers were injured.
