Delta throws 102nd birthday bash for one of first flight attendants

(Begin old-timey announcer voice) The war was in its second year. Bugs Bunny has just made his debut. Ted Koppel was born. The year? 1940. (End old-timey announcer voice)

And Delta is hiring its first class of stewardesses, now called flight attendants. Among them was Sybil Peacock Harmon, then a 24-year-old nurse. Delta recently threw a 102nd birthday party for her at her Acworth retirement home, the airline giant said in a news release last week.

“Flying was special because I was going places,” she said. “When I was 9, I told everyone, ‘I’m going to go all over the world.’”

She did.

Harmon said that Delta flew many young World War II pilots back to their bases after they had ferried war planes to North Africa.

“We called them ‘War Babies’ because they were so young,” she said. “ ... I was amazed these young men actually flew huge bombers and fighters. Most of the War Babies slept on flights because they had just come in from North Africa and were exhausted. When they couldn’t sleep, we’d play poker with them in the back of the plane.”

She said she “felt like a celebrity” as a stewardess; kids asked for her autograph.

At the party, there was a display of Harmon’s original flight log books, a stewardess uniform from that time and a life-size cutout of Harmon from a 1940 Delta marketing photo shoot.

She worked there three years and ended up marrying a U.S. Army captain who went on to be a director for Delta in Dallas. Their daughter worked for Delta for 35 years.

“It’s a whole new world now,” Harmon said. “I am proud to have paved the way for the next generation.”

Former Defense Secretary Ash Carter under former President Barack Obama is weighing in on Trump’s comments in Helsinki about Russian election interference.

Update 7:10 p.m. EDT July 16: Russian President Vladimir Putin again  denied any involvement in meddling in the 2016 presidential election in an interview with Fox News following the Helsinki summit with President Donald Trump.

“I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today," Trump said, appearing to take Russia’s side in the matter.

Putin also denied his country meddled in the 2016 election, but he did admit he wanted Trump to win the election. 

"Russia has never interfered in and is not going to interfere in U.S. internal affairs, including the elections," Putin insisted. He even offered to work with the U.S. in an investigation of the election interference.

“In the entire history of our country, Americans have never seen a president of the United States support an American adversary the way @realDonaldTrump has supported President Putin,” he said.

Schumer also suggested that Trump’s comments and his seeming support of Russia are a result of Putin holding “damaging information over President Trump.”

Update 5:05 p.m. EDT July 16: House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy issued a statement on President Donald Trump’s comments about believing Vladimir Putin when he said Russia had nothing to do with interfering in the 2016 presidential election, despite the conclusion of the U.S. intelligence community.

Like his Senate counterpart, McCarthy also said he stands behind the findings of the intelligence community, The Washington Post reported, citing a statement .

“The intelligence community, including the House Intelligence Committee, has looked extensively into Russian election meddling in the United States. I fully support their findings and their work to hold those responsible to account.”

Trump tweeted on his way home from the meeting that he has “GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.”

He also tried to explain his comments by saying, again in a tweet, that he was “taking a risk in pursuit of peace.” 

Update 3:22 p.m. EDT July 16: The Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, said via statement that the intelligence community has “been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security.”

Putin said that when it comes to the investigation, the only determination of what happened can come from the courts in the democracy, not law enforcement. He also said that he knows how dossiers are made from when he worked in intelligence. He said he will send a formal response to a formal request and hopes that the U.S. will reciprocate.

When Putin was questioned about compromising material the Russian government collected on not only Trump, but also his family, Putin said, that he had heard that the country had allegedly collected compromising material when Trump traveled to Moscow for business. 

Putin said that Trump was in Moscow as a private individual and a businessman and claimed that he didn’t know Trump was in the country. 

He then questioned reporters, hypothetically, if they thought he compiled compromising material on every businessman who was there for the economic meetings in 1987. 

Trump added that if Russia had any compromising information, it would have been out long ago.

Update 11:35 a.m. EDT July 16: Trump reiterated his stance that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russians, saying that the investigation has strained relationship between the two countries. 

Putin also said that the investigation needs to be guided by facts but not rumors. As for the 12 Russians who were indicted last week, Putin said his country will look into the case.

He did cite an extradition treaty that is in full effect since 1999. He said the treaty has specific procedures and that they will have a commission use it as a foundation to question the individuals and send the results to the United States. They can permit official representatives of the United States and allow them to be present at the questioning. They would hope that the U.S. would allow Russian officials question members of U.S. law enforcement and others in other cases.

Putin admitted, “I wanted Trump to win because he spoke about normalizing Russian relations,” the Guardian reported.

Update 11:22 a.m. EDT July 16: Trump spoke following Putin’s statement. He says that the relationship between Russia and the U.S. has never been worse up until today’s  summit 

“Even during the tensions of the Cold War, when the world looked much different than it does today, Russia and the US were able to maintain a strong dialogue.”

He said he would rather take a political risk instead of jeopardizing peace.

Trump said asked Putin about Russian involvement in hacking the U.S. elections. Trump said that Putin had an “interesting idea” as to what had happened, but did not go into detail. 

Trump said that he and Putin will be meeting again in the future and said it will be often. 

Update 11:12 a.m. EDT July 16: Putin started the news conference with a statement of where the two sides stand in the ever-changing world political structure.

Putin said the bilateral relationship is going though a complicated stage. He said that the Cold War is the thing of the past.  

“Today both Russia and the United States face a whole new set of challenges,” the Guardian reported.

Today’s meeting and the negotiations they worked on are the “first steps for improving this relationship and to restore an acceptable level of trust,” Putin said.

Putin lauded Trump and his administration’s work on easing tensions with North Korea. 

Update 11:07 a.m. EDT July 16: A man who claimed he was a journalist representing the publication, “The Nation,” was removed from the room that is the location of an upcoming news conference between Trump and Putin, CNN reported. It appears that the man was displaying a sign and he was forcibly removed from the room.

He had been given credentials by “The Nation,” The Hill reported.

Husseini held up a sign that read “Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty” which was reportedly considered by Russian authorities as a “malicious item,” CNBC reported.

Lesley Satenay, 40, of St. Lucia faces homicide charges for killing Krystal Phillips early Saturday morning at her home in Eatonville. The murder was not premeditated, court paperwork said.

Eatonville police said they were called to a home around 4:30 a.m. Saturday for the report of a body. When police arrived, officers said Satenay was standing on the porch stating, “the devil was inside his room.”

Officers observed blood on Satenay’s pants and feet as he told officers he “hit the devil with a Bible,” court papers said.

At the scene of the crime, investigators found a large pipe and a Bible that appeared to be covered with blood, documents said. Investigators also found a frying pan near Phillips’ body, even though investigators said the murder happened in a bedroom.

Investigators said Phillips suffered blunt force trauma. She was pronounced dead at the scene. A cause of death is still being determined, official said.

According to court paperwork, when police interrogated Satenay, he said he believed there were demons inside his room and that he swung his knife that he “thought struck a big person,” then got a frying pan from the kitchen and struck Phillips three more times.

Florida's economy hits $1 trillion GDP milestone

Florida’s economy hit a new milestone. The state’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) topped $1 trillion, the Florida Chamber Foundation’s chief economist announced Friday.

To put it into perspective, if Florida was an independent country, Florida’s $1 trillion economy would rank as the 17th largest economy in the world – ahead of Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Argentina, officials with the Florida Chamber of Commerce said.

“This is an historic moment for Florida reaching a record $1 trillion in GDP. By working every day to create private-sector jobs, we’ve been able to increase Florida’s GDP by more than $270 billion – 37 percent – since 2010,” Gov. Rick Scott said.

The FCF said the state is adding about $2.74 billion to the state's gross domestic product each day.

The chamber has launched the "Florida 2030" initiative to address problem areas in the economy, such as the achievement gap in schools and the poverty rate.

“This growth in our economy is good news and reminds us of the positive impact that business, community, philanthropic and elected leaders can have on Florida when we work together toward a common goal of securing Florida’s future,” said Tony Carvajal, executive vice president of the Florida Chamber Foundation.

Surveillance video showed the woman walking into the Triple R Gas and Mart in Waterford around 3 p.m. Wednesday and speaking to Savannah Pritchett, a clerk at the store, KCRA reported. The woman, who said she had been abducted in Fresno, had told her alleged captors that she needed to use a restroom.

“The first thing she did tell me was, ‘I was kidnapped, and they do have guns. Please, lock the door, they will kill us, or kill me,’” Pritchett told KCRA.

Pritchett locked the store’s front door and escorted the woman to the restroom, giving her a cellphone and instructing her to call 911, KFNS reported. Pritchett then allowed the alleged kidnappers into the store.

"I knew that if I left the door locked they would have caught on to something and probably took off,” Pritchett told KFNS. “So I went back up there and I unlocked the door. They seriously had no idea that I knew anything.”

Moments later, police responding to the 911 call entered the store and arrested Anthony Sandoval, 18, and eventually, three juvenile suspects, KNFS said.

“Her being able to get this victim into a secured restroom with a phone and being able to contact law enforcement very well may have saved her life,” Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Tom Letras told KCRA.

“The one thing that keeps replaying in my head,  ‘If I wouldn’t have believed her, what would have happened to her?’” Pritchett told KCRA.

Task force members followed her Feb. 22 to the Greyhound bus station in Houston, where they watched her get onto a bus with her daughter, the newspaper reported. They tailed the bus to Conroe, where Peters and her daughter got off the bus. 

Peters was arrested, and her daughter was placed in the custody of Child Protective Services. 

“The events of this case are hard to believe -- that a mom would willingly expose her own daughter to this type of danger,” Tyler Dunman, chief of the district attorney’s Special Crimes Bureau, said in a statement

Without the proactive work of the task force investigators, the child “would have become a victim (of) the worst type of abuse,” Dunman said

He urged members of the community to be vigilant and report to police any activity they see or hear about that could put a child in danger of sexual abuse or exploitation.

Barbara Reddick gave her nephew Tyrone MacInnes $100 to buy tickets for Chase the Ace, a lottery with a jackpot that had reached $1.2 million, and told him to put his name on the ticket as well, for good luck, the CBC reported she said.

“He’s always lucky with his draws, right?” Reddick, of Guysborough, Nova Scotia, told The Province. “I said ‘Well, put your name on the ticket and you’ll be my good luck charm.’ I didn’t say split. I never mentioned money at all.”

When their card was picked, it was Tyrone, who lives in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, whose contact information was on the ticket, who was called, according to the CBC. They found out they won and Tyrone wanted half, she told The Province

“I would have given him $150,000,” she said. “Listen, Tyrone was the son that I never had. Me and Tyrone -- ask anybody -- we’re very very close … . Tyrone is getting nothing from me. It’s just for the principle. We were so close. He broke my heart. He broke it. … People go crazy when it comes to money.”

At a check-presentation ceremony Thursday, Reddick was visibly distraught and as the cameras clicked, she quickly told her nephew that she would see him in court. 

"I'm taking him to court. I'm getting a lawyer tomorrow,” she told the CBC.

Lottery officials were dismayed with the way the presentation devolved.

"I can't really explain it. I didn't expect anything like that to happen. I just came to deliver the checks and present them to the winners,” Bernice Curley, chair of the Chase the Ace lottery, told the CBC. “I'm a little bit disappointed that happened at the end."

The Tampa Bay Times reported that FDOT secretary Mike Dew sent a letter to Conduent State & Local Solutions, Inc., which oversees the SunPass toll system in Florida. Dew said that while the vendor has made improvements in processing transactions, it is not enough to fulfill the original performance-based contract both parties signed in 2015.

"Because this is an absolutely critical service, the Department will not deem the assurances Conduent provided in your July 10 letter to be adequate," Dew wrote.

In that July 10 letter, David Amorielli, president of Conduent, did not set a timeline for fixing the problems that have plagued the tolling system since June 1, the Times reported.

SunPass is Florida’s prepaid toll program and is used on the Florida Turnpike, most toll bridges in the state and on other toll roads. A transponder is used to track customer tolls.

Florida transportation officials said Conduent is expected to process at least 8 million backlogged charges each day, but that goal has not been reached, the Times reported. In a July 11 news release, the FDOT said 28 million transactions had been processed. Since then, only 4 million backlogged transactions were processed, the Times said.

Trump and Putin “spent a great deal of time” discussing allegations of Russian election meddling as they met for several hours Monday, the U.S. president said. 

Trump resisted when asked Monday to condemn Russian meddling in the election, instead complaining about a Democratic National Committee computer server and Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. 

“They said they think it’s Russia; I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia,” Trump said. 

“I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be” Russia that was responsible for the election hacking. “I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.”

Here are some of the comments made just after the summit ended.

Houston police and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office named Jose Gilberto Rodriguez, 46, as the suspect in the murders, KTRK reported. Rodriguez is a parolee who was released from prison last year, authorities said.

Since 1989, court records show that Rodriguez has been convicted on burglary, attempted aggravated sex abuse, auto theft and criminal trespassing charges, KTRK reported. He is also a registered sex offender, the television station reported.

Monday afternoon, police received a call to a Mattress One store in north Houston, the Chronicle reported. When they arrived, police found an unidentified man who was shot to death, Houston Police Department spokeswoman Jodi Silva said.

Saturday night, a store manager for a Mattress Firm near the Willowbrook Mall found Allie Barrow, 28, dead and positioned between two mattresses,  KTRK reported.

Barrow had a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Harris County Institute of Forensic Science.

Friday, 62-year-old Pamela Johnson was found dead in her home, KTRK reported. Authorities said the woman's vehicle was seen being driven by a man.

“All three cases appear to be related,” Houston police Lt. Humberto Lopez said at a news conference.

'RHONY's' Luann de Lesseps checks back into rehab

“Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps has checked herself back into rehab.

“This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her girlfriends and decided — with their support — that in light of recent circumstances, it is the healthiest choice for her not to attend Tuesday’s reunion taping so that she can continue in her healing process,” Frankel said in a statement to People. “Luann is now surrounded by a core group of people who truly have her best interests at heart and who are working to make sure she gets the help she needs.

“Bravo has been very supportive of Luann during this time. It’s a brave and honest decision by her, and everyone is rallying around her and wants the best for her,” Frankel said.

This is the second time in recent months that de Lesseps has sought treatment. In December, she checked into rehab after she was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida, Dec. 24. At the time, she was charged with disorderly intoxication and battery on a police officer.

Frankel said that part of the reason de Lesseps has entered rehab is to get back to her #CountessAndFriends cabaret show as soon as possible. She just finished several sold-out shows.

“Luann loves doing the cabaret,” Frankel said. “She’s taking the necessary steps to get better so that the show can go on.”

According to the cabaret show website, the next shows are Aug. 4 in Long Island, New York, and Aug. 24 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

News of de Lesseps going back to rehab comes days after The Blast obtained court documents revealing her first husband, Alexandre de Lesseps, her daughter, Victoria de Lesseps, and son, Noel de Lesseps, filed a lawsuit against her. The suit claims de Lesseps breached a stipulation in her divorce settlement by selling their $8 million marital home and not putting the home in a trust for their children. 

“Recent additional family stress was a catalyst to her taking a break,” Frankel told People.

Bravo, for its part, issued a statement of support for its star.

“Bravo supports Luann’s decision to focus on her health,” the network said in a statement to People. “She is part of the Bravo family and we continue to stand by her as she copes with this challenging situation. At this time, we hope everyone will respect her privacy.”

Beloved Labrador dies after drinking too much saltwater at Florida beach

O.G. was by Chris Taylor’s side for nearly seven years. 

>> Read more trending news

Taylor and the Labrador bonded almost immediately when they met when he was a 3-month old-puppy, according to WFLA. O.G. helped Taylor between classwork as he attended college to become a teacher.

"He always wanted to be doing what I was doing," Taylor told WFLA. "He's my family. He's just so goofy and just always excited to see me when I came through the door."

They went to the beach to take a break from schoolwork Monday. Hours later, the problems began. The Labrador started to vomit and experience diarrhea, according to WFLA. On Tuesday, O.G. was lethargic but eating. By Wednesday, things got worse when O.G. suffered a seizure. 

"I saw him last night, and he was convulsing,” Taylor told WFLA. “And I asked if he was in pain, she said, ‘I don't even think he knows where he is.’"

Taylor found out that saltwater can be highly toxic to animals, causing brain damage, seizures and dehydration, veterinarian Katy Meyer told WFLA. She recommends limiting a dog’s exposure at the beach to about two hours, with fresh water breaks in between. 

"Things can come on gradually and you're not aware of how serious things are upfront," Meyer said. "When the brain gets affected, the body is affected.”
