Lawmakers hope for calm after the storm on Capitol Hill

With a new speaker in the House and a major budget-and-debt deal completed, lawmakers hope they are entering a welcome period of calm – even boredom – on Capitol Hill.


Willie Nelson rolls out marijuana brand

Country music star Willie Nelson announced plans Monday to roll out his own brand of marijuana, capitalizing on his association with pot and the unofficial stoner holiday, 4/20.


U.S. Supreme Court will decide gay marriage issue

Setting the stage for a potentially historic ruling, the Supreme Court announced Friday it will decide whether same-sex couples have a right to marry everywhere in America under the Constitution.


Ballot measures: California next for pot activists

SEATTLE (AP) — Marijuana activists who have longed for decades to end America’s drug war pocketed more major victories Tuesday, with Oregon and the nation’s capital approving recreational pot use. The advocates believed they also have another win, too, in Alaska, as a legal pot measure held a steady lead.


Tunisians skeptical on eve of historic election

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — In a raucous cafe in a Tunis slum, men talked in loud voices and paid little attention to the politicians debating on the television mounted on the wall. Qais Jebali swiftly made espressos behind the bar and explained why no one in the gritty neighborhood of Tadamon cared about the upcoming elections. “We’ve had five governments since 2011 and nothing has changed on the ground,” he said, arranging the cups of strong black coffee on a tray with a bowl of sugar. “The poor people don’t trust the government because they are marginalized, harassed by police and don’t have money to pay bribes.”


Debaters hope to sway undecided in Scotland vote

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Scotland’s long debate over whether the country should become independent has proved a bonanza for printers of bumper stickers, posters, balloons and even umbrellas. Nationwide the words “Yes” and “No” can be found emblazoned on everything from street lights to shopping bags. Posters proclaiming “Proud to be Scots. Delighted to be United” and “Yes to a better, fairer Scotland” adorn the windows of homes sharing the same street.


Dan Sullivan wins Alaska’s GOP US Senate primary

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A tea party attempt to overcome a mainstream Republican came up short in Alaska as former state Attorney General Dan Sullivan won the GOP primary to become his party’s candidate to take on U.S. Sen. Mark Begich in the fall. Sullivan entered the primary the presumed front-runner, with the backing of national GOP powerbrokers and a huge cash advantage over his rivals.


House campaign groups start $75M ad push

WASHINGTON (AP) — Starting a $75 million national advertising blitz, both parties’ House campaign arms on Tuesday began running television spots that are not expected to relent before November’s elections. In New York and New Jersey, the Democratic Congressional Committee began spending $2.3 million on ads in districts represented by Republicans. In Florida, the National Republican Congressional Committee started what will be a $1.7 million campaign to defend Rep. Steve Southerland, who risks being voted out of Congress after two terms.


Tropical Storm Iselle makes landfall on Hawaii

HONOLULU (AP) — The first storm in a one-two punch heading for Hawaii clamored ashore overnight Friday as a weakened tropical storm, while a second system close behind it strengthened and was on track to pass north of the islands. Tropical Storm Iselle’s eye crossed onto the Big Island about 5 miles east of Pahala with winds at 60 mph at 2:30 a.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Iselle is the first tropical storm to hit the state in 22 years. Hurricane Julio, a Category 3 storm, is some 900 miles behind in the Pacific, packing maximum sustained winds of about 120 mph, but was forecast to weaken and skirt north of all the Hawaiian islands starting sometime Sunday morning.
