LEEDEY, Okla. — The subject of a weeklong manhunt who was wanted in a string of violent crimes, including the killing of two relatives, the shooting of two Oklahoma police officers and multiple carjackings, has been killed in a shootout, federal and local police said on Sunday.Michael Dale Vance Jr. was wanted on multiple charges, including two counts of first-degree murder. A massive manhunt for Vance began after he shot and wounded two police officers on Oct. 23 in Wellston, 35 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, authorities said.Dave Turk, spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service, said Vance was shot and killed after a shootout with an officer in Dewey County, Oklahoma. The shootout was near the town of Leedey, said Mark Opgrande, spokesman for the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office. Leedey is about 130 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.Vance, 38, was suspected of shooting a woman and stealing her vehicle at a mobile home park near Wellston, then driving about 8 miles to his relatives’ mobile home in Luther and killing them, Opgrande has said.Ronald Everett Wilkson, 55, had been shot and had stab wounds to his neck “consistent with an attempt to sever his head,” an arrest affidavit said. Valerie Kay Wilkson, 54, had similar neck wounds along with defensive wounds on her arms, the affidavit stated.Authorities also believe Vance filmed two Facebook Live videos documenting his run from police before going to the Wilksons’ mobile home.
Forecasters advise light snowfall will likely return Tuesday night after another low-pressure system brings snow to the area Monday night through Tuesday morning.In a winter weather advisory, the National Weather Service in Portland expected some snowfall to continue before tapering off by midday Tuesday.Most accumulation from Monday night’s snow will likely be fairly light, said Matthew Cullen, a meteorologist at the weather service.Temperatures reached freezing Monday night, and Tuesday night’s lows in Vancouver will be around 26 degrees. How much of a problem ice will pose is difficult to say, Cullen said, but forecasters don’t expect more of it.“We’re not expecting anything new in terms of ice accumulation, in terms of freezing rain, at all in the next couple of days,” he said.Tuesday’s low pressure system is expected to track south of Portland and around the mid-Willamette Valley. Tuesday night’s system will likely hit the Cascades and their foothills hardest, said the weather service, which added that they were less confident about its course.Snow is forecast to start falling again late Tuesday night in Vancouver, which will likely see less than an inch of new accumulation, according to forecasters.Although points south will likely see more, Cullen said some higher-elevation areas in Southwest Washington may see up to 1 to 3 inches of snowfall Tuesday night.

Like many young couples in Vancouver, Ethan and Morgan Woltersdorf set out to find a home only to discover most apartments were priced just outside of their reach.So they decided to shrink their expectations.About seven months ago, newlyweds Ethan, 21, and Morgan, 22, moved into a 300-square-foot tiny house on wheels. The cozy cabin is built on a converted manufactured home trailer and parked on a family member’s property in Salmon Creek. For $20,000 — and assists from relatives and friends who are engineers and construction workers — the pair became homeowners.“Ultimately, that’s all we can afford to live in,” said Ethan Woltersdorf, a Washington State University Vancouver student.But the Woltersdorfs say Clark County, despite its recently adopted accessory dwelling unit policies, is souring their dream. The couple received a letter from Clark County code enforcement telling them their tiny house did not comply with county code and to stop living there.“Which is insane. I can’t just move somewhere at the click of a button,” Ethan Woltersdorf said.While Clark County eased its standards for accessory dwelling units in January, a tiny house on wheels like the Woltersdorf home may still not be considered a legal dwelling, according to code enforcement officials. County code allows for accessory dwelling units no smaller than 150 square feet and no larger than 1,600 square feet, so long as they’re constructed or mounted on a foundation.The county — and many other jurisdictions — view tiny houses on wheels as recreational vehicles. There are, however, changes the Woltersdorfs can make to their home to bring it into compliance.
The Clark County medical examiner has identified the woman who died from a fall at Lacamas Lake Park as 37-year-old Tara L. Holyk. Holyk, a Vancouver resident, died from multiple blunt force injuries caused by an accident, according to the medical examiner.The Camas-Washougal Fire Department reported last week that Holyk fell in the Potholes area below the dam at Lacamas Lake Park on the evening of July 18.The incident was reported about 7 p.m. Firefighters arrived to find Holyk had died of traumatic injuries. A technical rescue team spent three hours to safely recover her body.The Potholes are on the west side of the park, below a dam that can be crossed via a footbridge.According to a online fundraiser page set up for Holyk, she was a single mother raising three daughters.“She was such a beautiful, upbeat, adventurous and an all around positive woman with a wonderful heart,” the Go Fund Me page says.Donations will help move and raise her girls, and with apartment fees and funeral expenses.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppJAMAICA, Kingston, July 13th 2017: Jamaican scientist, Dr.Henry Lowe marked history this week when his drug developed from cannabis to treat acute myeloid leukemia was been granted orphan-drug designation by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).Dr Lowe, described the development as historic, pointing to it being the first time according to his knowledge anyone from a developing country like Jamaica has been able to achieve this feat of starting from the isolation of a bioactive molecule and working it up to provide a new drug from scratch.The FDA designation could see the drug, which has the trade name Cresorol, being placed on the market within three years, with estimated annual minimum sales of more than US$250 million in the US market alone. Globally, the figure is expected to multiply significantly.Lowe who operates a company called Flavocure Biotech, is known globally for using the properties of Jamaican plants, particularly ball moss and cannabis, in his cancer research, was notified of the approval late last month.Dr Lowe, while outlining his vision and mission for scientific research in Jamaica, made an appeal for local funding which, he said, was critical to Jamaica reaping the full benefits of scientific work done here using indigenous plants.Pointing out that Jamaica has 52 per cent of the globally recognised medicinal plants, Dr Lowe and Professor Morrison lamented the fact that the island has not benefited from vinblastine and vincristine — the two drugs processed from Periwinkle which are now used to treat childhood leukaemia.Prime Minister Andrew Holness, who gave the keynote address, commended Dr Lowe and his team for their remarkable achievement, describing it as the epitome of innovation, that comes from hard work and tenacity, necessary to improving Jamaica’s growth projection, that can also assist in stimulating economic growth.#MagneticMediaNews#JamaicanScientistDevelopsFDAapprovedDrugForMyeoidLeukemia Related Items:
Newcastle United have reportedly earmarked Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers as a potential replacement for under-fire manager Rafael Benitez.Leicester City are also rumored to be interested in the services of the former Liverpool manager and are currently monitoring his situation in Scotland.Newcastle are currently bottom of the Premier League and without a win in all competitions this season while Leicester, who travel to the Emirates Stadium to play Arsenal on Monday night, are currently tenth with the manager, Claude Puel under pressure with the Foxes.Rodgers recently revealed that he has turned down interest from other clubs in his time at Celtic, with the former Swansea City boss also confirming earlier in the season that an unnamed Chinese club made a lucrative approach to him during the summer.Match Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.Rodgers reiterated his summer frustrations about the club’s disappointing summer transfer window, following their convincing 4-2 win over Hibs on Saturday afternoon, although he did indicate that he felt as though the Scottish Premiership champions were finally finding their feet again after a turbulent start to the season.“We stood still as a club when we should have really gone into another gear,” he said, according to Evening Times.“We didn’t do that but now we’re starting to move again.
