BREAKING: Gov. Roy Cooper extends Phase Two five more weeks – The Chatham News + Record

BY CAROLINE WATKINS AND HANNAH MCCLELLAN, News + Record Staff

North Carolina will remain in the Safer at Home Phase 2 of reopening until 5 p.m. on Sept. 11, Gov. Roy Cooper announced Wednesday. This is the second extension of Phase 2 in North Carolina, following Coopers July 16 announcement that stated restrictions would remain in effect in the state until at least Aug. 7.

In keeping with our dimmer switch approach with schools opening, and in order to push for decreasing numbers which will keep people healthier and boost our economy, North Carolina will remain paused in Safer At Home Phase 2 for five weeks, he said at the news conference. While were seeing stabilization of our numbers, that doesnt mean we can let up. We know the stability is fragile and these trends can change quickly if we let down our guards."

Gov. Cooper emphasized the importance of not overwhelming hospitals, saying some other states that opened up more quickly than North Carolina are now experiencing overcrowded hospitals. Currently, there are 1,167 people hospitalized in North Carolina for the virus, but those numbers could easily go up, he said.

In North Carolina, there are at least 129,288 lab-confirmed cases of patients with COVID-19 and 1,167 people hospitalized for the virus, he said. At this point, 2,050 North Carolinians have died from the coronavirus.

"Every single one of them represents someone in mourning and a community grieving their loss," Cooper said. "They are more than numbers on a chart they are North Carolinians who are missed dearly."

See Gov. Roy Cooper's press conference in its entirety by clicking here.

The Phase 2 extension keeps bars, gyms, and entertainment venues closed and also limits the size of indoor and outdoor gatherings in retail stores, restaurants and other businesses. Under Phase 2, restaurant dining rooms are allowed to have 50% occupancy, as are personal care businesses like salons, barbershops and tattoo parlors. Educational institutions and government operations are exempt from statewide prohibitions on mass gatherings.

According to Dr. Mandy Cohen, director of the states Department of Health and Human Services, the metrics that the state uses to analyze the spread of the virus have stabilized. Still, stabilized numbers do not mean the state is in the clear, according to the governor.

The metrics that the state considers when moving to a new phase include COVID-like syndromic cases, laboratory-confirmed cases, positive tests as a percentage of total tests and hospitalizations. The state is also looking at statewide capacity for testing, tracing and personal protective equipment. The combination of these metrics were analyzed over the past 14 days.

"My glimmer of hope remains as we see subtle signs of progress," Cohen said. Overall, we are seeing signs of stability, but we still have much work to do.

While the turnaround for testing times have improved, fewer tests have been conducted over the past week, Cohen said. She added that anyone who needs a test should get one, particularly those who have recently attended a large gathering or work in a higher-risk job.

Cooper and Cohen both said that the decision to extend Phase 2 for five weeks, rather than two or three, was made with the reopening of public schools in mind. The governor announced on July 14 that schools would open under the hybrid learning Plan B, stating that there are no decisions more important than our children in our schools. At the time, he said individual schools could opt for the fully remote Plan C option. The Chatham County Schools Board of Education announced at their July 16 meeting that CCS would start under Plan C for the first four weeks of school and then re-evaluate.

Half of North Carolinas K-12 school districts will be offering a form of in-person learning this fall, Cohen said. At this time, fully in-person learning Plan A is not an option for any district in North Carolina.

Cohen said the state will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 trends and commended North Carolinians following recommended health protocols. The governor emphasized the importance of continuing to wear face coverings in public, staying home when possible and washing hands frequently.

"Whether it's a storm or pandemic, that kind of hope and our shared commitment to a stronger future will keep us going," Cooper said. "Hold onto that hope. Keep wearing your mask. And know that these difficult times won't last forever, but our strength and resilience will."

Watch now: Pritzker urges residents to act before state steps in to control COVID-19 spread – Journal Gazette and Times-Courier

"The numbers aren't as high as they were in April and May, but they are increasing," said IDPH Dr. Ngozi Ezike. "If we don't take further steps to reduce the spread of the virus, our numbers will continue to go up and we will be right back where we were just a few months ago. This virus is trying to gain momentum. It's cunning and it's elusive."

IDPH reported 1,759 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday. An additional 30 people died from the virus, including one from Winnebago County. The seven-day positivity rate is steady at 3.9%

The numbers bring the total number of COVID-19 cases in the state to 186,471, with 7,573 deaths. There are currently 1,552 people hospitalized, with 368 in intensive care and 129 on ventilators.

Wednesday was the third straight day that Pritkzer held a news conference to discuss the coronavirus situation. The number of new cases has risen consistently since the state entered Phase 4 of Pritzker's reopening plan at the end of June. The positivity rate has gone from less than 3% to as high as 4% since the reopening.

On Monday, Pritzker announced a $5 million ad campaign to encourage people to wear masks. He made the announcement in Sangamon County, where he singled out Springfield Mayor Jim Langfelder for taking steps to restrict the spread of the virus in bars and restaurants.

A day later, Pritkzer visited Jackson County which has seen a spike in cases and where the Carbondale City Council voted unanimously to enforce measures to control the virus.

It’s the mask: Rivers, Reich laugh over missed connection to open Colts camp – WISHTV.com

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) Hey, Coach your new quarterback just tried to say hello.

This is how the Philip Rivers-Frank Reich era begins in Indianapolis.Rivers spots his old offensive signal caller walking through the weight room, shouts out a greeting to grab Reichs attention, and incomplete pass.

I just kind of glanced over and waved because someone was walking with me and I was talking with them and because Philip (Rivers) had a mask on, I didnt even recognize it was him, Reich said.

He walked right by, Rivers said and laughed. I think I kind of hollered and he kept walking and he didnt know who hollered at him, nor should he.

Im telling you its a little bit of a challenge in these masks and things that we are wearing.

On Wednesday, the missed connection is about the only aspect of Rivers and Reichs relationship that isnt on the same page right now.

After just a few days of on-the-field work at Colts training camp, it is clear how much admiration exists between the pair.

When you work with a guy for three years in this business, thats a long time, Reich said.

You get closer, you grind it out, you go through some big-time highs and lows together and those theres something thats formed in battle there. Theres something going through those times together that brings you close, and I think were seeing that here with our team here.

On a completely different note, Rivers, a father of nine, was asked whether he seriously considered opting out of the 2020 NFL season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

No, there really wasnt, Rivers said. There wasnt any consideration. Again, I think the health and safety of my family is the upmost importance, but I just think again Im not going to pretend to be an expert.

I feel like we have to trust, be thankful, be safe and do the best we can. Another reason is I think at this point, making that decision for me wouldve been making the decision to be done period retiring, which is nowhere on my mind.

With Rivers locked and loaded at training camp, a fresh start for one of footballs greatest competitors ever is officially underway.

With updated information from the Indiana Department of Health on Aug. 5, this timeline reflects updated tallies of deaths and positive tests prior to that date.

Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office temporarily closed after several employees test positive for COVID-19 – WISHTV.com

MUNCIE, Ind. (WISH) The criminal division of the Delaware County Prosecutors Office has been closed until further notice after several employees tested positive for coronavirus, according to prosecuting attorney Eric Hoffman.

Hoffman announced the closure of the office in a press release Wednesday. The office is located at 100 W. Main St. Suite 312 in Muncie.

Health officials with the Indiana State Department of Health are working to contact individuals who are considered close contacts of the individuals who tested positive.

Hoffman said all employees at the prosecutors office will be working from home and meetings or depositions that were scheduled to take place at the prosecutors office have been canceled.

With updated information from the Indiana Department of Health on Aug. 5, this timeline reflects updated tallies of deaths and positive tests prior to that date.

Mason Greenwood shows off new tattoo after being named Man Utds player of the month – The Sun

MASON GREENWOOD sported a new tattoo as he picked up the Manchester United player of the month award.

The Red Devils forward, 18, played in all seven of United's matches in July.

2

He smashed in four goals to help fire his side to a third-placed finish in the Premier League and secure Champions League football at Old Trafford next season.

That was enough to see him collect the gong ahead of team-mates Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial.

He picked up 46 per cent of the vote on the Manchester United app.

And as he posed for photos at United's Carrington training ground, Greenwood had his right forearm wrapped in cling film - although it is unclear what exactly the fresh ink represents.

The academy graduate, who joined the club aged six, kickstarted July in emphatic fashion with a double in the 5-2 win over Bournemouth, cannoning in a strike with either foot.

In United's next game he scored the second in a crucial 3-0 win at Aston Villa with another belting finish from just outside the box which is quickly become the Greenwood trademark.

He failed to find the net against Southampton, Crystal Palace or Chelsea but scored another pivotal goal to rescue a draw against West Ham.

That put United above Leicester and ensured a point on the final day was enough to finish in the top four.

Greenwood was named man of the match in the three matches he scored in as he enjoyed a stellar month.

His club award stops a run of three successes in a row for Fernandes who has been in red-hot form since arriving in January.

And Greenwood, who turned 18 in October, becomes the the youngest player of the month at United since Marcus Rashford burst on to the scene in February 2016.

Homeboy Wins $2.5 Million Dollar Hilton Humanitarian Prize on the 25th Anniversary of Annual Award – Good News Network

The gang-intervention heroes at Homeboy Industries have just been chosen as winners of the 2020 Humanitarian Prize from the Hilton Foundation, and will receive $2.5 million in unrestricted funding.

As the worlds largest annual humanitarian award, the Prize is presented to a nonprofit organization judged to have made extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering.

Homeboy Industries is a unique place where former gang members are able to experience healing from their violent pasts within the context of kinship. It is a place of hope where work therapy, mentorship, education, tattoo removal and many other vital re-entry services are offered so people can have a second chance at life.

We used to be worst enemies on the streets and now were family at Homeboys, said one Homeboy trainee.

Founded in 1988 by Father Gregory Boyle, Homeboy was formed with the goal of improving the lives of former gang members in East Los Angeles. At that time, Fr. Boyle was a pastor of the Dolores Mission Church, the most impoverished Catholic parish in the city, alongside, two of the largest public housing projects in the country. They also had the highest concentration of gang activity in the country.

While law enforcement tactics of suppression and criminal justice policies of mass incarceration were the prevailing means to deal with gang violence, Fr. Boyle saw young people who deserved a chance and worked to change the way the world views them.

Today, Homeboy Industries has evolved into the worlds largest gang intervention, rehab and re-entry program, and is dedicated to providing hope, training and support to individuals, which in turn makes a positive impact in those individuals families and communities. Their re-entry program focuses on helping participants heal from complex trauma through the delivery of wraparound social services rooted in a culture of kinship and tenderness.

Importantly, the program builds work readiness skills for participants through employment opportunities in nine social enterprises which it owns and operates, including a bakery, tailor services, and print shop.

All of us at Homeboy Industries are profoundly humbled by the Hilton Foundations recognition, Homeboy Industries Founder Fr. Gregory Boyle, S.J. said. Their validation of our work of 32 years strengthens our resolve (and) helps us all to move past survival of the fittest and allow the thriving of the nurtured.

The invaluable support that Homeboy Industries has received from both Los Angeles and California State government officials has been instrumental to the success and survival of Homeboy Industries and its community.

Homeboy Industries is in the business of second chances, helping thousands of Angelenosincluding survivors of mass incarceration and systemic racismfind meaningful healing, job training, and community, said Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The president and CEO of the Hilton Foundation, Peter Laugharn, says, With the intention of ending the socio-economic inequities that impact communities, (this is) a tremendous example of ground-breaking humanitarian work right here in Los Angeles. Its community-led approach has spawned and supported a global network of over 300 organizations.

To date, the Hilton Foundation has awarded $36.5 million to recipients of the Prize. Homeboy Industries joins the roster of 24 Prize Laureates, including METAdrasi, SHOFCO, icddr,b and The Task Force for Global Health.

Moretti continues Pletcher dominance in Birdstone with popular win – Horse Racing Nation

Repole Stable and Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners' Moretti repelled a challenge from Rocketry at the top of the stretch and posted a popular 1 -length triumph in Sunday's $100,000 Birdstone at Saratoga Race Course, continuing trainer Todd Pletcher's dominance of the 1 -mile dirt marathon.

It was the fifth win in nine runnings of the Birdstone for Pletcher, whose previous victories came with Rule (2011), San Pablo (2012), Repole-owned Micromanage (2014) and Hard Study (2017). Hall of Fame jockey Javier Castellano earned his fourth win in the race, following Rule, Micromanage and Turco Bravo (2016).

American Tattoo, a one-time Pletcher trainee, got to the front under a snug hold from Luis Saez to lead the five-horse field through an opening quarter-mile in 25.67 seconds under mild pressure from Expert while Castellano positioned Moretti in the clear, three wide in third. Moretti's stablemate You're to Blame was unhurried in fourth as Rocketry, third in last year's Birdstone, trailed the field.

The half went in 51.49 with American Tattoo and Expert still leading the way, as You're to Blame edged Moretti for third and Rocketry remained the trailer. The order stayed the same through splits of 1:17.75 and 1:43.79 when Expert ranged up to forge a short lead over You're to Blame as American Tattoo dropped back after running 1 miles in 2:08.51 on the fast main track.

Moretti, racing without blinkers following his come-from-behind second to Tacitus in the Grade 2 Suburban last out on July 4 at Belmont Park in his most recent effort, established command once straightened for home and faced a challenge from Rocketry, who had followed Moretti's move on the far outside. The top two set down for a drive to the wire that was decided when Moretti edged clear past the eighth pole, completing the distance in 2:58.51.

"At one point in the race, I thought I might have made a mistake [removing blinkers] because he seemed like he was almost a little too relaxed," Pletcher said, "But I know in these kinds of races you can't have a horse that's pulling too much. The main thing is I wanted him to settle into a good rhythm and it seemed like he was doing that. He was always responding well when Javier asked him to maintain his position. He finished up well."

You're to Blame came flying late to edge Rocketry by a nose for second. Expert was another 7 lengths back in fourth, followed by American Tattoo. Highland Sky, who ran third but was promoted to second following the disqualification of first-place finisher Sadler's Joy in Saturday's Grade 2, $250,000 Bowling Green, and Standard Deviation were scratched.

Moretti, a 4-year-old son of multiple Grade 1-winning $5 million earner Medaglia d'Oro bred in Kentucky by Thor-Bred Stables, fetched $900,000 out of Fasig-Tipton's 2017 Saratoga Selected Yearling Sale but had never run at Saratoga. After racing only twice at 2 and three times at 3, he has made six starts this year and won three of the last four including the 1 3/8-mile Flat Out on June 11 at Belmont Park.

"This horse never gets tired. I love this horse and I like the way he performs," Castellano said. "He's an old pro and he knows what he's doing. No matter if you're on the lead, on the pace or coming from behind, he's steady, steady, steady. He's always consistent."

Sent off as the 6-5 favorite, Moretti returned $4.60 for a $2 win bet.

The Birdstone was the second consecutive win on Sunday's program for Pletcher, who also took the eighth race with Bass Racing's Fort Worth. A New York-bred son of City Zip that sold for $550,000 as a 2-year-old in training in 2018, Fort Worth ran six furlongs in 1:09.71 over a fast main track to take the second-level state-bred allowance by 2 lengths.

"It was a big effort. He had been training really well. Of course, you're always concerned off a long layoff like that but I liked the way he had been training and it looked like he was ready. It was an impressive time, too," Pletcher said.

"We just had a couple little setbacks along the way and had to stop a couple different times. It's a credit to the Bass family for how patient they are with a horse that they feel like has some talent," he added. "He was a little unlucky first time out. You look back and he ran against Shancelot in his debut and we know how fast that horse is. It was just nice to see the horse get back in action."

Moretti continues Pletcher’s dominance in $100K Birdstone – Past The Wire

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. Repole Stable and Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners Moretti repelled a challenge from Rocketry at the top of the stretch and posted a popular 1 -length triumph in Sundays $100,000 Birdstone at Saratoga Race Course, continuing trainer Todd Pletchers dominance of the 1 -mile dirt marathon.

There’s a Really Simple Reason Zendaya Doesn’t Have Any Tattoos – POPSUGAR

From Halsey to Miley Cyrus to Ashley Benson, it seems like one thing that some of the biggest stars in the world have in common is their love of tattoos. Halsey has over 30 pieces of ink on her body in various sizes and with different meanings, while Benson has a growing collection of body art that even includes her latest of a milkshake. But there are also a handful of celebrities that you'll never see with a tattoo, one of them being Zendaya.

In a 2019 interview with Allure, the multi-hyphenate star said, "I love tattoos. But I don't want any." Deciding to get something permanently marked on your body is a really personal choice that takes a lot of though, so we'd say that's a fair enough response.

Her only exception to that rule would be a matching tattoo with her Euphoria co-star, Hunter Schafer. "Hunter and I want to get 'rules' tattooed on our [inner] lip. So we might do that," she said.

"Rules" is a nod to the blended couple name given to her character, Rue, on the HBO series, and Schafer's character, Jules. On the show, the two meet each other at a party at the end of the first episode and become fast friends, and by episode five, they're seen getting matching "rules" tattoos on the inside of their bottom lips.

Zendaya and Schafer appear to be just as close in real life as they are on-screen, which is why this admission isn't all too surprising. Still, we won't hold our breath for the day she decides to get a tattoo, though we're sure it'd look pretty badass.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Four people have been charged with stealing at least 27 firearms from a San Francisco Bay Area gun store on a night in May when thousands of people took to the streets to protest police brutality.

Dashawn Taylor, Anthony Craft Jr., Tyronza Hampton Jr. and a fourth person whose name is still sealed because they have not been arrested were indicted Monday for the theft May 31 at Richardson Tactical in Hayward, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

My office stands in support of all Americans exercising their First Amendment rights to peaceable assembly and speech. But we will also investigate and seek justice for those who use the cover of lawful protests to break the law," said Northern District U.S. Attorney David Anderson.

In a partially unsealed indictment, the grand jury also charged Taylor with possession of a stolen firearm and Craft with being a felon in possession of a firearm. It was not immediately known if the suspects have attorneys who can speak on their behalf.

Prosecutors said Taylor was arrested a week after the burglary when he was in a vehicle that crashed while fleeing the scene of a shooting in Oakland. Police found him with a gun that had been stolen from Richardson Tactical, court documents showed. Authorities later identified him as a burglar whod pulled his mask down in front of a surveillance camera, the East Bay Times reported.

Authorities say evidence against Craft includes photos posted on Instagram that show him pointing two pistols at a camera. The guns were the same types of pistols stolen from the shop, including one a P365 SAS model that is new to the market and not yet in wide circulation, prosecutors said.

Hampton was identified by his hand tattoos, which authorities allege match tattoos of one of the burglars. He was also identified as the owner of a gold Buick sedan that was seen on surveillance footage driving up to the burglary and leaving afterward, authorities said.
