As school begins amid coronavirus, parents see few good options

WOODSTOCK, Ga. >> John Barrett plans to keep his daughter home from elementary school this year in suburban Atlanta, but he wishes she were going. Molly Ball is sending her teenage sons to school in the same district on Monday, but not without feelings of regret.

As the academic year begins in many places across the country this week, parents are faced with the difficult choice of whether to send their children to school or keep them home for remote learning because of the coronavirus pandemic. Many are unhappy with either option.

“I definitely think it’s healthy for a child to go back to school,” said Ball, who feels her sons, William and Henry, both at River Ridge High School in Georgia’s Cherokee County district, suffered through enough instability in the spring...

Pac-12 football players urge opt-out amid COVID-19 concerns

A group of Pac-12 football players today threatened to opt out of the coming season unless their concerns about competing during the COVID-19 pandemic and other racial and economic issues in college sports are addressed.

The players posted a statement on the Players’ Tribune website and social media with the hashtag #WeAreUnited and sent out a news release. The release listed the names of 12 Pac-12 players from nine schools, including Oregon star safety Jevon Holland, and provided a statement from each one.

Hawaii officials count 45 new coronavirus cases but say data is incomplete

Hawaii Department of Health officials today reported 45 new coronavirus cases but said the daily reporting of positive COVID-19 cases has been “temporarily affected by missing data.”

Officials said data from Saturday and today is missing from Clinical Laboratories of Hawai‘i, a private laboratory conducting most of the tests in the state.

The 45 new cases being reported today are “not a complete and accurate picture due to the temporary delay in receiving complete data,” they said.

“We are missing electronic laboratory reporting data from one of the private clinical laboratories, from July 31 to today,” State Epidemiologist Dr. Sarah Park said in a news release. “This is likely a result of recent modifications in data reporting required by the U.S. Dept...

University of Hawaii football player tests positive for coronavirus

A University of Hawaii football player is in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19, school officials announced today.

None of the 116 UH football players had tested positive for the coronavirus during team-wide surveillance testing in late June. But during a routine screening ahead of a workout last week, the player showed symptoms. The player then was tested and put into isolation. He was notified of the positive result on Saturday, according to UH officials.

“The student-athlete is being monitored by the UH medical staff and is experiencing mild symptoms,” officials wrote in a tweet.

People who have been in close contact with the player, including those who live in the same off-campus unit, also are being tested.

Annual Sturgis motorcycle rally expects 250K, stirring COVID-19 concerns

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. >> Sturgis is on. The message has been broadcast across social media as South Dakota, which has seen an uptick in coronavirus infections in recent weeks, braces to host hundreds of thousands of bikers for the 80th edition of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

More than 250,000 people are expected to rumble through western South Dakota, seeking the freedom of cruising the boundless landscapes in a state that has skipped lockdowns. The Aug. 7 to 16 event, which could be the biggest anywhere so far during the pandemic, will offer businesses that depend on the rally a chance to make up for losses caused by the coronavirus. But for many in Sturgis, a city of about 7,000, the brimming bars and bacchanalia will not be welcome during a pandemic.

Though only about half the usual numb...

Pompeo says Trump to take broad action on Chinese software

NEW YORK >> President Donald Trump plans to take action on a what he sees as a broad array of national security risks presented by software connected to the Chinese Communist Party, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said today.

Pompeo’s remarks followed reports that Microsoft is in advanced talks to buy the U.S. operations of TikTok, which has been a source of national security and censorship concerns for the Trump administration.

“These Chinese software companies doing business in the United States, whether it’s TikTok or WeChat — there are countless more … are feeding data directly to the Chinese Communist Party, their national security apparatus,” Pompeo said on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Marines halt search for 8 missing troops, all presumed dead

SAN DIEGO >> Eight troops missing after their landing craft sank off the Southern California coast during a training exercise are presumed dead, the Marine Corps announced today.

The Marines said they had called off the search that started late Thursday afternoon when the amphibious assault vehicle sank with 15 Marines and one Navy sailor aboard. Eight Marines were rescued, but one later died and two are in critical condition.

The 26-ton, tank-like craft took on water and quickly sank in hundreds of feet of water — too deep for divers — making it difficult to reach.

“It is with as heavy heart that I decided to conclude the search and rescue effort,” said Col. Christopher Bronzi, commander of the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit.

All of the Marines aboard were attached to the 15th M...
