Multiple people are dead and several wounded — including four police officers — after a mass shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood Saturday morning.

The shooter is in custody, Pittsburgh Police report. Gunfire erupted as a service was getting underway during a baby-naming ceremony.

“It sounded like a loud crash in the hallway,” said Stephen Weiss of Squirrel Hill, who was in Tree of Life services Saturday morning. Services were scheduled from 9:45 a.m. to noon.

As Mr. Weiss was running through the building, he heard loud, repeated gunfire that he said sounded like an automatic weapon. He ran to the basement and found the congregation holding services there sheltering in place. He then went back up to the main chapel and left the building, he said.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the effort to conceal the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a Saudi consulate in Turkey was the "worst cover-up ever."

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump declined to preview what the U.S. would do in response to Khashoggi's death by Saudi operatives. But he was clear in his view that the operation and its aftermath demonstrated incompetence.

"They had a very bad original concept, it was carried out poorly, and the cover-up was the worst in the history of cover-ups," he said. "They had the worst-cover up ever."

Shortly after Trump spoke, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. would punish certain Saudis who have been connected to the killing.

LWV provides online voter's guides for every PA district

This new website Vote411.org is the most complete compilation of voting info I've ever seen!

Link: https://www.vote411.org/

The link takes you to the opening page where you enter your address, city, state and zip code. The database finds your district and precinct, and then it displays every candidate that will appear on your ballot. This is not for actual voting, but merely to provide you with comparable info about each candidate. We should be informed first before going to vote!

Another service they provide is to email your selections (if you wish) or text them so they're handy when you need them. It's completely voluntary and no records are kept by the League of Women Voters. Or you have the option to simply print the page if you want and create your own record.

One thing I noticed is that this covers the candidates only, not the local/county/state resolutions where voters would voted yes or no.

This is an awesome website that organizes a lot of information that voters NEED and is often hard to find!

Here's a great idea for Halloween costume

I think this would only work for a tallish man (or older teen) though. It wouldn't work for children whose legs are too short. Probably need some sewing skills to pull this off, but it would definitely be the hit of your Halloween party!
