Two men pleaded guilty Monday to stuffing lead weights into fish during a Lake Erie fishing tournament last year. Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven Gall will sentence Jacob Runyan, 43, and Chase Cominsky, 36, on May 11. On September 30, 2022, Runyan and Cominsky competed at the Lake Erie Walleye Trail tournament in Cleveland. The tournament hosted fishermen from several surrounding states that competed to see which team could catch five of the heaviest walleye fish in Lake Erie. The director of the tournament noticed Runyan and Cominsky’s walleyes weighed more than they looked and sliced open the fish. Ten weights were located inside the walleyes, eight weighing 12 ounces and two weighing eight ounces along with several walleye filets. The duo, who would have received a total prize of $28,760 if they had won the tournament, were disqualified immediately after the fishy discovery. Both men will remain out on bond until their sentencing. Following the controversy at the tournament, the story garnered national media attention as a viral video of the scandal surfaced on social media. (Cleveland19 WOIO)

This has been an amazing month for stargazers and will wrap up with a rare show. For the best viewing, make sure you’re in a dark, low-light area. Much of the display will become visible to the naked eye over the next couple of weeks, even in urban areas with significant light pollution. And it can be spotted across the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The arrangement will be visible just underneath the crescent moon. To spot the display, head out to a place with a good view of the western horizon just after sunset, when streaks of the colorful sunset still remain and the sky has turned dark blue but not yet black. The easiest planet to spot will be Venus, often referred to as the “evening star,” because it’s the brightest object in the night sky apart from the moon. Uranus will appear close to Venus, though it may be difficult to pick out the distant planet without binoculars or a telescope unless you’re viewing from a prime location with no light pollution. Beneath Venus and Uranus will be Jupiter and Mercury, hovering just above the horizon. Mercury may also be difficult to catch without special equipment, as the sun’s glare can blot out the planet. But to careful observers, both planets will be visible for about 20 to 30 minutes after sunset. Topping off the planetary parade will be Mars, sitting in a straight line up from Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Uranus and the moon. It’s easy to pick out because of its signature orange tint. The planets will all appear “kind of like pearls on a necklace” across the night sky. The entire alignment will cover just about 70 degrees of the sky.
Next up after that, Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, and Saturn will be visible coming up on June 17th. (CNN)

Utah is living up to its tourism tagline of having the “Greatest Snow On Earth,” and there is plenty of it to go around as the state is now celebrating over 700” of snow so far this season. The record-breaking snowfall milestone officially happened at Utah’s Brighton Resort, located 30 miles southeast of Downtown Salt Lake City. The 703-inch season of snowfall was recorded on Thursday and is the earliest time this achievement has happened since Utah began record keeping of snowfall in 1943, according to data shared with Travel + Leisure. “To put this season’s snowfall in perspective, Utah typically receives an average of 500 inches per season. Seven hundred inches is the equivalent of ten cars stacked on top of one other. 2022-23 has been a banner year for Salt Lake area ski resorts,” Visit Salt Lake’s President & CEO Kaitlin Eskelson said in a statement shared with T+L. To recognize the historic snowfall, Ski Utah, Visit Salt Lake, The Utah Office of Tourism, and the Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City installed a 700” tall banner on their building to show the scale of the snow.

Three children and three adults are dead after a gunman opened fire Monday morning at a Christian school in Nashville.
Authorities say the shooting occurred at The Covenant School, which is connected to Covenant Presbyterian Church, and serves students up to sixth grade. Police arrived and killed the shooter. Metro Nashville Police Department has identified the shooter as 28-year-old Nashville resident Audrey Hale, who identified as transgender. Hale, who was initially described as a teenager, was “fatally shot by responding police officers,” police spokesman Don Aaron said. Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake said during a news conference Monday, “We know there were two AR-style weapons – one rifle, another was an AR-style pistol, and the other was a handgun. We believe two of those may have been obtained legally, locally here.” As for a motive, Drake said the shooter was once a student at the Covenant School and the suspect’s gender identity may have been involved. Drake said, “We have a manifesto. We have some writings that we’re going over.” Police identified the victims as three 9-year-olds, a 61-year-old woman, a 60-year-old substitute teacher who was also head of the school, and a 61-year-old custodian.

Reports say a train carrying hazardous materials derailed in North Dakota early yesterday morning. The incident happened near Wyndmere, west of the Minnesota border. Officials said 31 of the 70 Canadian Pacific cars on the train derailed, some of which leaked petroleum used to make asphalt. The leaked materials will freeze due to the cold weather and are expected to turn into gel. The cleanup is projected to last between a week and ten days. Authorities say there was no threat to public safety, no fire, no nearby waterways and no reported injuries. Emergency response personnel from Canadian Pacific including a hazardous material team and local first responders were on site yesterday morning in Wyndmere, about 60 miles from Fargo. This is the latest in a string of train derailments that have made national news. The 50-car derailment in East Palestine, Ohio in February is still causing concern after spilling hazardous materials and forcing evacuations from the area. Residents have complained of illnesses and dead animals since the event took place on February 3rd. Source: Fox News

A wild crash on a California freeway was captured on video last week showing a car flip through the air after it struck a tire that popped off a pickup truck and was sent airborne. The accident happened Thursday on the Ronald Reagan Freeway in Chatsworth neighborhood of Los Angeles. Anoop Khatra was driving behind a dark-colored Kia Soul in the left lane when her dashcam recorded the heart-pounding moment. A white pickup truck was driving in the lane adjacent to the Kia when the pickup’s front-left tire popped loose and shot out in front of the Kia, according to the video. The Kia struck the tire and was launched several feet off the roadway, the video showed. The vehicle flipped in the air before landing on its roof and rolling several times. The car eventually landed right-side-up as the stray tire continued to roll and strike the rear of the vehicle. Meanwhile, the pickup truck rolled across the freeway to the right shoulder and appeared to come to a stop. The California Highway Patrol told KABC-TV that the Kia driver suffered minor injuries. The agency said the pickup truck’s tire came loose due to what appeared to be sheared-off lug nuts. (FoxNews)

Creed star Jonathan Majors was charged with multiple misdemeanor counts of assault and harassment two days after he was arrested in New York City. On Monday, PEOPLE obtained documents from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office that show Majors was charged with three counts of assault in the third degree, aggravated harassment in the second degree, three counts of attempted assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree, after he was arrested for an alleged domestic dispute on Saturday. The documents show the victim told police that Majors allegedly “[struck] her about the face with an open hand, causing substantial pain and a laceration behind her ear,” as well as allegedly grabbed her hand and neck, “causing bruising and substantial pain.” Following the arrest, Priya Chaudhry, Majors’ criminal defense lawyer, maintained in a statement shared on Sunday with PEOPLE that the actor is “completely innocent and is probably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows.” “We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently,” Chaudhry said in the statement. “This evidence includes video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations.” (

Grimes and Elon Musk’s daughter, Exa, has a new name. The 15-month-old little sister of X Æ A-12 was originally named Exa Dark Sideræl.
