The weather's been crazy, the U.S. Open was even crazier, and that's just the beginning...
Here are the Top 5 Things You Need To Know Today for Monday, June 18th:
THE IMMIGRATION FEUD CONTINUES
President Trump and his allies continue to stand behind the "zero-tolerance" policy, even if it breaks up families, but he's getting some (mild) pushback from folks like First Lady Melania. Meanwhile, the Border Patrol chased down an SUV, and when it was all over, five people were dead.
THE INSPECTOR GENERAL HAS A LOT OF QUESTIONS TO ANSWER
The Department of Justice IG is facing unpleasant questions from the Senate about his lengthy report on the Clinton email investigation. He pointed the finger at James Comey, among others, but several GOP Senators are saying that finger-pointing isn't enough.
FOR SHEER DISBELIEF, THIS U.S. OPEN WAS A GOLF TOURNAMENT FOR THE AGES
Brooks Koepka stayed tough and ground out his second consecutive Open victory, but even he finished the tournament over par. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy looked like weekend duffers, and don't even ask about Phil Mickelson.
SAD CONCLUSION TO AN UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENT LAST WEEK
Donald Millazo of Baldwinsville, age 27, died Saturday evening after he was hit by a pickup truck last Wednesday night on Route 31 in Lysander. State Police are still investigating, but for the moment, it looks like the driver won't be ticketed or charged. Just one of those awful things that happens...
THE HEAT IS ON
We hit 90 yesterday and will probably top that today, thus a Heat Advisory has been issued, especially for folks with health problems... so we went from mid-Spring to mid-August almost overnight. Thunderstorms this evening should break the heat, with a much nicer day coming Tuesday.
