Children's remains found in badger hole

Children's remains found in badger hole

Skeletal remains found earlier this month by Idaho Fish and Game officers appear to belong to a pair of children, Elmore County sheriff’s deputies said Monday. >> Read more trending news It was not clear how long the children had been buried before their remains were found April 15 in a badger hole just north of Mountain Home. Deputies initially only believed the remains belonged to a single child. “It is clear by the condition of the remains that they have been buried for a considerable amount of time,” deputies said in a news release.  No clothing was found at the burial site and the children’s genders were not apparent. Authorities said it was unclear whether the deaths were the result of foul play. The burial site is near the Oregon Trail. Officials are investigating whether the bones could have been left by 19th century migrants heading west on the trail. Deputies said the exact ages of the bones will be determined by carbon dating. A preliminary investigation showed that two children were buried one atop another in the badger den near Hot Creek Road. One child appeared to be between 3 and 5 years old and the other between 4 and 9 years old at the time of burial, officials said. An archaeologist with the Bureau of Land Management told deputies that the grave did not appear to be a Native American burial site. Deputies said investigators are working with local law enforcement agencies to determine whether the remains match any missing child cases. Authorities continue to investigate.

Detectives with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office are looking for a man who was seen trying to kidnap a 16-year-old girl Tuesday morning. Witnesses told deputies they saw a man and the girl in a physical struggle around 6:15 a.m. Tuesday inside the Alexandria Parc Vue Apartments community.   The girl was able to fight the man off.  The altercation left her bruised and shaken. Witnesses describe the suspect as a white male in his 20’s with a thin build, brown hair and facial hair.  Investigators say he fled the scene in a tan or beige 4-door vehicle. Crimeline is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. If you know anything call 800-423-8477. 
In case you needed another reason to be excruciatingly aware when taking a walk through the woods, a tweet of a camouflaged Copperhead by Helen the Herpetologist may make your stomach turn.   Helen shares in her tweet that a colleague sent her the photo, challenging her to spot the brown, spotted venomous snake among a pile of leaves.   She, in turn, challenges her Twitter followers, writing, 'Received this from a fellow HERper this morning. No caption needed, the task was implied: 'can you spot the snake?''   After roughly 24-hours of letting people look, stress and guess, Helen lent a hand by outlining the covert reptile for her audience. 'If y'all haven't found it yet... Copperhead, aka Agkistrodon contortrix,' she writes, 'Cute but venomous, so no touchy!' Mobile users see first tweet here and reveal here.
Oreos are an American dessert staple, but have they changed? The New York Post reports there's been buzz that Oreos 'taste different' for nearly a year on social media and on a website called PissedConsumer.com. One user on the latter website wrote in March, 'Filling and chocolate cookie don't taste the same!,' and another wrote on Facebook, 'The Oreos suddenly taste different. Like cheap cookies with that disgusting undertaste.' So what gives? As of July 2016 some Oreos were no longer manufactured at the Nabisco Chicago plant. Production was moved to Mexico, though the Chicago plant is still open, and Oreos are still manufactured at plants in Oregon, Virginia, and New Jersey (and Canada.) So some Oreos are made in Mexico, otherwise, Oreo responded to a comment on Facebook saying they hadn't changed the recipe at all. But, when the Post reached out for comment they were told, 'Oreo produced for different markets may have different flavor profiles based on local market tastes. However, any product that is made for North America consumers has the same recipe and taste profile regardless of what site it is produced at.' So the change in taste might just be attributed to your own taste buds.
An amazing hit topped by an arobatic finish at home plate.  It happened at Busch Stadium last night in a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the the Cardinals. The play started with a tripple by Kevin Pillar.  The throw raced ahead of Cris Coghlan heading into home, but catcher Yadier Molina was bending over collecting the ball when Coghlan soared over him, flippled and tucked and landed on the plate with his right hand, shoulder and head.  Safe.

New GOP health changes would evidently not impact – members of Congress

The legislative text of a deal being worked out among Republicans on new changes to a GOP health overhaul bill would seemingly carve out an exception to any insurance changes that might affect coverage for members of Congress, allowing them to maintain current benefits under the Affordable Care Act, while states would be allowed to reduce the mandated scope of health insurance coverage for consumers.

Health care reporter Sarah Kliff was one of the first to report on the change, which would seemingly make sure that members of Congress did not see changes to their own health plans.
