    • Black-eyed mugshot of Lancaster County suspect gets national attention, disbelief

      A police mug shot taken in Lancaster County, S.C., is drawing attention across the country for what appears to be a blond woman with black eyes. The mug shot is of 24-year-old Morgan Joyce Varn, who faces charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and property damage in Lancaster County. She remained in the Lancaster County jail Friday without bond. It is the kind of case that typically doesn’t get attention beyond county lines, but the story was being picked up across the nation Friday due to Varn’s striking image: Full head of blond hair, pale forehead covered in tattoos, and the whites of her eyes appearing to be black and reflective like glass. Social media commenters quickly picked up on the photo,

    • Marshawn Lynch's full-page Seattle Times ad: 'Thank you 12s'

      Marshawn Lynch is a Seattle Seahawks legend, beloved by the fans to the point that their greatest regret is he didn’t get one more carry. But the running back un-retired to come back with his hometown Oakland Raiders, which is the type of thing that could rub some overly possessive fans wrong. Not with “Beast Mode,” though. Not with a player so appreciative of his fans. Paul Allen is the Seahawks’ owner. “12s” is a reference to the team’s fans’ “12th Man” nickname. Seattleites can pick up Sunday’s The Seattle Times with the advertisement as a great keepsake — and a great source of local news!

    • North Korea test-fires ballistic missile in defiance of world pressure

      By Jack Kim and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile on Saturday shortly after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned that failure to curb Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs could lead to "catastrophic consequences". U.S. and South Korean officials said the test, from an area north of the North Korean capital, appeared to have failed, in what would be the North's fourth straight unsuccessful missile test since March. The test came as the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier group arrived in waters near the Korean peninsula, where it began exercises with the South Korean navy on Saturday, about 12 hours after the failed launch, a South Korean navy official said.

    • 'Horrifying' execution of US inmate: lawyer

      The last of four US prisoners rushed to death by the state of Arkansas after intense legal battles, jerked and convulsed in a "horrifying" end to his life, his lawyer said Friday, as the UN and EU renewed their opposition to the death penalty. Kenneth Williams, a 38-year-old convicted multiple murderer, was the last of four inmates put to death over the space of a week -- the first such executions by the conservative southern state since 2005. "Press reports state that within three minutes into the execution, our client began coughing, convulsing, jerking and lurching with sound that was audible even with the microphone turned off," lawyer Shawn Nolan said in a statement.
