Biden tours flood-ravaged N.J., NYC, says infrastructure plan needed to deal with climate change

Biden argued that now is the time to take prompt action, including on his infrastructure plans. “This is an opportunity,” Biden said as he met with officials in Hillsborough, N.J., before touring nearby Manville. “The country has finally acknowledged the fact that global warming is real, and it’s moving at an incredible pace, we’ve got to do something about it.” The destruction from heavy rain and flooding from Ida’s remnants was “incredible,” and the losses “profound,” the president said. In New Jersey, 27 people were among the dozens killed across the Northeast. In New Jersey, Biden spoke with several people who said they had lost their homes and were lucky to escape the floods with their lives. In New York, his message was similar: He hoped Ida’s destruction could serve as a wake-up call for climate skeptics. “Sometimes my mother used to say out of everything bad, something good will come if you look hard enough for it. Well, I think we’ve all seen, even the climate

Biden escalates shutdown stare-down with hurricane aid, Afghan resettlement plea

President Joe Biden’s budget office is calling for more than $14 billion to address disaster aid needs prior to Hurricane Ida, which just ravaged the Louisiana coastline and caused massive flooding throughout the northeast. Administration officials expect Ida alone to necessitate at least $10 billion in disaster funding across a variety of programs, leaving it to lawmakers to fully assess the need. The White House is also asking for $6.4 billion in funding for the Pentagon, the State Department and the Department of Health and Human Services to help Afghan allies and partners settle in the United States and eventually pursue citizenship. Top Democrats have yet to decide when the stopgap spending bill should expire — a date that could tee up yet another major fiscal standoff — and Biden administration officials declined to specify a preferred date. An administration official also said the White House fully expects Congress will “act promptly” to address the debt limit, as law

White Sox: Lucas Giolito confident; Eloy Jimenez hopefully OK

Tony La Russa didn’t entirely mind being back at Oakland Coliseum. “A lot of good memories,” said the winner of 798 games and one World Series as A’s manager from 1986 to 1995. But as the Sox opened a three-game series against the desperate A’s with untested Jimmy Lambert making only his third career start, La Russa had rotation troubles on his mind. Lance Lynn , on the injured list with inflammation in his right knee, is getting in bullpen work in Oakland while Carlos Rodon skips another turn due to shoulder fatigue and soreness. Lucas Giolito , on the IL with a strained left hamstring, threw hard off flat ground Tuesday and felt “really good.” All three could be back in the rotation in short order, but that’s easy for us to say. “Our starting rotation was such an anchor,” La Russa said. Giolito has his own Coliseum memories. Last postseason, he stood tall and delivered seven dominant innings as the Sox took a 1-0 lead in a best-of-three series. Alas, that’s where the g

Class action lawsuit against CPD alleges racial profiling in stop and frisk practices

It was a night like any other. At least, that’s what Rashawn Lindsey thought as he walked home with his friend in Chicago after an evening out at his cousin’s in April 2015. Lindsey, 18 at the time, didn’t see the flashing blue and red lights approaching behind them. Not until his friend shouted his name. The first thing Lindsey saw when he turned around was a police officer pointing a Taser in his direction. “Hands up!” The officer shouted. Lindsey complied and was handcuffed next to his friend. The officer began going through their pockets and demanded to know if either had marijuana on them. They didn’t. “I felt like a criminal,” Lindsey, now 24, said. “They had no reason to stop us. We were just walking. The problem was it was at night and we got our skin.” Rashawn Lindsey poses for a portrait at Romanucci & Blandin law offices at 321 N. Clark Street in the Loop.

Hendriks’ first season with White Sox ‘not the year I envisioned for myself’

OAKLAND, Calif. — Liam Hendriks leads the American League in saves and he’s following up the Reliever of the Year season he had here in Oakland in 2020 with another good one. He characterized his first five months in a White Sox as good and bad. “There’s been stretches where I’ve done what I was brought here to do and stretches where I have underperformed,” Hendriks said. “That’s the case with any reliever, you’re going go through those little struggles but the biggest thing is how quickly you get out of those.” At times Hendriks has made fixes quickly. Other times it took too long to suit him. There was a stretch, including an overlap of the Field of Dreams Game, where he was tipping pitches. “I’m doing alright in save totals and strikeout totals but not well in the blown saves department,” he said. And the 3.00 ERA is not where he wants it. “You can dive into the numbers and tweak at them any way you want to, but it’s been a roller coaster year for me and it’s not th
