"Unfortunately, the children are unable to dress as a Pilgrim or Native American," teachers wrote in an email to parents. "We apologize if you already purchased or made your child’s costume.

A federal appeals court ruled this week that the Trump administration illegally excluded millions of tons of dangerous and toxic materials in public use from a safety review. that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must include risks from asbestos, lead and other toxins regardless of whether or not they are currently being produced. The substances are still present in some homes, including in home insulation, house paint and other products. Under the Obama administration, the EPA said it would take risks posed by older products into consideration under the congressionally mandated safety review. However, the Trump administration has sought to limit the review to products that are currently being manufactured, ...

A federal judge yesterday declined to impose an emergency stop to bison hunting near Yellowstone National Park. On the eve of Montana's bison-hunting season starting today, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell rejected a by Montana resident Bonnie Lynn and her group called Neighbors Against Bison Slaughter. Since actual hunting isn't imminent, Howell declared the "plaintiffs fail to demonstrate the exigency" required for a temporary restraining order. In another blow to Lynn, Howell also granted the government's request to move the case from the District of Columbia to Montana. "The citizens concerned about the hunt's intensity are citizens of Montana," Howell noted. "Many of the citizens who will be denied the chance to hunt if plaintiffs succ.

A former state representative from the Upper Peninsula, Steve Lindberg, spied a three-antlered deer this weekend and posted photos to his Facebook page. "Five days before rifle season for Whitetail Deer and look who I get to see, along with his girlfriend," the retiree wrote. "A three antlered, nine or twelve point buck (depending if you want to count the two little tines on the right antler, and the small tine on the left antler)." It was a rare sighting. An amateur photographer who lives in Marquette, Lindberg said he decided after a lifetime of hunting, he'd rather shoot deer with a camera than a gun.

Jackson. An escalating fight between the Environmental Protection Agency's top political aide and its internal watchdog has forced a behind-the-scenes Washington operator into the spotlight. Ryan Jackson, a native Oklahoman who worked for Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) for more than a decade and a half, has maintained a relatively low profile since becoming EPA's chief of staff in the early days of the Trump administration. He weathered the headline-grabbing scandals that brought down former Administrator Scott Pruitt and helped transition Pruitt's replacement, Andrew Wheeler, into the job. Now Jackson finds himself facing off with EPA's acting inspector general, who took the rare step last week of publicly accusing Jackson of stonewalling invest.

Employees at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) were given reassignment letters Tuesday as the agency marches toward its relocation across the West, giving staff 30 days to accept the move or face being booted from the federal workforce. The delivery of the letters means BLM employees will begin moving over the next four months, cementing a. that spreads about 300 Washington-based staffers across various offices out west and leaves just 61 of the bureau’s 10,000 employees in the nation’s capital. A copy of the letter obtained by The Hill makes clear that employees who do not choose to move could lose their jobs. Current BLM employees said the agency has not done enough to help employees who wish to remain in D.C. find another job elsewhere

Not even the white-hot star power of celebrated fashion designer, perfumier and filmmaker Tom Ford can guarantee a home finds a buyer. Which is why the 58-year-old fashion icon has just slashed the sticker-price of his stunning 22,000-acre New Mexico ranch from $75 million to $48 million—a not-so-trivial chop of $27 million. Ford first listed his Cerro Pelon Ranch back in 2016 and, surprisingly, has had no takers. We say “surprisingly” because the vast ranch is set in one of the most visually-stunning areas of the Southwest—the Galisteo Basin, south-east of Santa Fe. Add to that the fact that after Ford purchased the ranch back in 2001, he commissioned renowned Japanese starchitect Tadao Ando to design a spectacular, single-story modern con.

After pushing U.S. oil and natural-gas production to record levels, some shale companies are doing the unthinkable: They are planning to pump less. The pullback is sharpest among the country’s largest natural-gas drillers. Several producers, including EQT Corp. and Chesapeake Energy Corp., have said during third-quarter earnings that they may shrink output next year. But even more oil-focused shale companies are promising to rein in spending and forecasting slower growth. Diamondback Energy Inc., Callon Petroleum Co. and Cimarex Energy Co., all active in the Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico, told investors last week that they were contemplating holding next year’s spending around current levels.
