    NYPD Detective Robert Garland, founder of 'Fund the First' -- a crowdfunding group for first responders -- reacted to the ambush of two Los Angeles Sheriff's deputies on Sunday and called the crime "horrible," before offering his organization's support to those affected. “Obviously I was outraged because stuff like this shouldn’t be happening," he told Fox News during a phone interview. "Our law enforcement is out there trying to protect people and to be ambushed like that is horrible." Garland was referring to the two Sheriff's deputies, a 24-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman, who were ambushed and shot in Compton, Calif., on Saturday, when an armed man approached their police vehicle and opened fire unprovoked. Both deputies were initially in critical condition and “fighting for their lives” as they underwent surgery following the attack. After the incident, protesters reportedly showed up to the hospital where the deputies were being treated, shouting slogans like "Death to the police!."...
    SANTA CLARA — The 49ers’ season opener is set to start on time at 1:25 p.m. thanks to an air-quality index that’s remained below the NFL’s 200 AQI threshold, but neither wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk nor center Ben Garland will be in 49ers uniform as potential starters. Aiyuk, a first-round draft pick, will sit out after practicing only twice in limited fashion last week because of an Aug. 23 hamstring strain. Garland, last season’s starting center in the Super Bowl, was also limited in two practices by an ankle sprain dating back to Aug. 18. Either Daniel Brunskill or Hroniss Grasu will start in his place. The 49ers’ other top projected wide receiver, Deebo Samuel, went on injured reserve Saturday and will miss a minimum three games under the NFL’s revised IR rules. Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis, Trent Taylor and Richie James will suit up as...
    SANTA CLARA — Here is Friday’s status report for the 49ers’ season opener Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi’s Stadium: AIR QUALITY The 49ers practiced Friday in unhealthy air quality, but they claim their system’s reading was below the 200 air-quality index that is the NFL’s threshold for canceling practices and rescheduling games. The Santa Clara AQI on iPhone’s weather app read 205 as the walk-through began, exactly 49 hours before the opening kickoff. The 49ers nor NFL have announced a contingency plan if the AQI is too dangerous to play Sunday and they are continuing to monitor smoke and air forecasts. No fans are allowed entry because of COVID-19 concerns. “I’m sure discussions are going on right now to figure out the best and safest option,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said, according to the team’s website. Running back Tevin Coleman did not...
    TEXAS – Officials with the Garland Department of Public Health have issued a warning because a bat tested positive for rabies. The report indicates that the animal was captured on September 8 in the vicinity of Matador Drive and N Jupiter Road.

    TEXAS – The Garland Police Department released details of the raids they conducted over the Labor Day holiday weekend.

    SANTA CLARA – Grey, smoke-choked skies hovered Thursday over the 49ers’ practice field with an air-quality index of 83, considered moderate and far below the 200-mark threshold that could reschedule or relocate Sunday’s season opener. Here are the top things we’re learning ahead of the official afternoon participation report: BRANDON AIYUK RETURNS Wide receiver Deebo Samuel (foot) has yet to practice but first-round Brandon Aiyuk participated for the first time since his Aug. 23 strain to his left hamstring. Samuel came off the non-football-injury list Saturday and the team reviewed his latest medical scans Tuesday on his left foot. His delay in practicing makes it even more unlikely that they will play Sunday. Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor figure to serve as the top three wide receivers, but the 49ers can also unleash George Kittle with fellow tight end Jordan Reed, as well...

    GETTY Quarterback Colin Kaepernick #7 of the San Francisco 49ers and Daniel Kilgore #67 stand on the sidelines in the first quarter against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on December 4, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. If the San Francisco 49ers were thinking their injury issues couldn’t get any worse, they need to think again. The latest hiccup comes in the form of Ben Garland, an interior lineman who was expected to be used as a backup option for starting center Weston Richburg, who is expected to miss the first six weeks of the season. Garland did well in place of Richburg last year, but it appears as if the former Denver Bronco is the latest San Francisco player to suffer an injury. Center Ben Garland sprained his ankle in practice today and sat out the second half of the session. That’s another blow to the team’s center...

    Instead of undergoing a full-scale rebuild, the Cleveland Cavaliers are expected to be more aggressive in building a competitive roster in the 2020 offseason. After acquiring Andre Drummond before the 2020 February NBA trade deadline, rumors are circulating that the Cavaliers will be going after another star who will be available on the trade market this fall. According to Chris Fedor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, one of the most realistic trade targets for the Cavaliers is Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers. As of now, the Sixers haven’t shown any strong indication that they are planning to break the young superstar duo of Simmons and Joel Embiid, but they could change their mind if they suffer a huge disappointment in the 2020 Playoffs. Once Simmons becomes officially available on the trading block, Fedor believes that Cleveland could assemble an enticing package that includes former No. 5 overall pick Darius...

    Some say yes, others say no. That’s where things stand on whether Senate Republicans would move quickly to replace a Supreme Court justice should a vacancy suddenly arise before the November election. “Oh, we’d fill it,” Senate Majority Leader  Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said last year. Asked again in February, McConnell said, “If you’re asking me a hypothetical … we would fill it.” But Republicans in the chamber refused to allow a nominee to move forward in 2016 after the death of the late conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. McConnell. Then-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blocked Merrick Garland, whom President Obama nominated in March, saying it was too close to the election.

    TEXAS – The Garland Animal Service Office was surprised after responding to a call about a deceased dog.

    GARLAND (CBSDFW.COM) – When North Texas schools reopen for in-person learning, most classrooms will have a new look to them. But what will that look like exactly? “They can still see their friends. They can still interact with their friends. They just have to do it from a little bit of a distance,” said Renee Kotsopoulos, director of Health Services for the district. Fifteen desks can fit into the 4th grade classroom at Katherine Stephens Elementary School, six feet of separation between each one. Three-way plastic barriers surround not just the teacher’s desk but each student’s. “It’s really more to protect the students and the teachers as they’re up there teaching,” Kotsopoulos said. “A teacher can’t simply sit behind the desk and be effective, so she is going to have to walk around, so this will aid on that.” CBS 11 went inside one of Garland ISD’s model classrooms for...

    (CNN)On March 16, 2016, President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia the previous month.On March 16, 2016, Senate Republicans made clear that they would not even hold confirmation hearings for Garland, much less schedule a vote on whether he should ascend to the Court.Given that, you could be forgiven for being surprised by this headline on CNN on Monday night: "Republican leaders vow to fill a potential Supreme Court vacancy this year, despite some apprehension." Wait, what? A quick check of the calendar shows that it is July 21, which, I believe, is far later in the year than March 16. And, yes, 2020 is an election year -- just like 2016.So, what's different? Well, a Republican is president now. And might not be come 2021 -- if polls are to be believed.

    SAN ANTONIO – In an effort to keep teachers comfortable once schools reopen, two Dallas-area school districts will allow their educators to wear scrubs. Garland and Lancaster Independent School Districts recently announced the change, according to WFAA. Garland ISD Superintendent Ricardo López told the news station that teachers had requested the change to the dress code. “Scrubs are easier to clean. You don’t have to worry about ruining them. You put them in high-temperature hot water and if they come out a little faded, you are not going to worry that it is not your best clothing. So we said why not,” López said. UT-Austin prepared a list of scenarios that would lead to a shutdown this fall. One trigger: a student dying of COVID-19. Both districts have also purchased face masks and shields for students and staff who plan on returning to the classroom. On Friday, Texas schools were...
    School districts in Garland County, Arkansas, are still required to comply with a 1989 law that determines parent choice of district based on whether a child’s race in the desired district exceeds the percentage in the family’s resident district.

The NAACP and the class of black individuals filed a federal lawsuit seeking to consolidate all Garland County public school districts. So My Kids Cant Go To Jessieville Because They Are White ⁉️⁉️

    Collin Sexton, #2, Cleveland Cavaliers, Kevin Porter Jr., #4, (Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images) The Cleveland Cavaliers have a young core that doesn’t seem to fit well together. This fun game helps us evaluate their assets and clear up their backcourt log jam. Far from the top of the list of “best young cores in the NBA,” the Cleveland Cavaliers find themselves in an odd position two years out from LeBron James’s second departure from the team. The team has lost, frequently, and none of the four first-round draft picks they’ve made since their last NBA Finals appearance — Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Dylan Windler, and Kevin Porter Jr. — looks like the heir apparent to being the top dog on the next not-awful Cavs team. But while Windler may have accidentally been wrecked by a John Beilein workout, the other three have all shown flashes of talent, and it’s way...

The family feared Sharkey would not be found alive. “I thought we were going to find him, honestly, in the wooded area next to the hospital dead in his wheelchair,” said Miranda Garland, his daughter-in-law. Garland said Sharkey was admitted to Northeast Baptist Hospital on Wednesday afternoon after he experienced a seizure. She said the hospital notified the family they were prepared to release him. However, when they arrived at the hospital to pick him up, they learned he had already left in his wheelchair. “His nurse said that he was competent enough to leave on his own. He seemed like he was fine, so she just...
    Director Alex Garland makes movies where the characters’ external surroundings might as well be the insides of their minds. His films tend to center on subjects and characters that have the power, expertise, or money necessary to force their exterior reality to try to match their internal reality. Think of the house where the experiment of Ex Machina takes place, the pearlescent , seemingly alien intelligence of the shimmer in Annihilation, or the golden, almost holy computer lab in Devs, which is available to stream now in its entirety via FX on Hulu. But those visuals aren’t Garland’s work. The set designs of many of his film and TV projects come from production designer and art director Mark Digby, who worked with Garland on each of those three projects, as well as films such as Dredd (which Garland wrote) and Rush. I couldn’t get Devs out...

The new Garland VA Medical Center is expected to serve as many as 8,000 veterans, making primary care more convenient and easing crowding at the VA’s main campus in Dallas.

Staff inside the Garland center Tuesday were already handling virtual appointments and telemedicine calls with veterans.

    The 1966 Jacqueline Susann novel “Valley of the Dolls” was the top selling novel of that year, a dishy mix of drugs, sex and general escapades. Since then, it has sold more than 30 million copies and spent 28 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list, staying there for 65 weeks overall. At one point, the Guinness Book of World Records even declared it “the most popular novel in the world.” The 1967 film starring Barbara Parkins, Patty Duke, Sharon Tate and Susan Hayward also achieved a sort of hallowed “so bad it’s good” status, delighting viewers with its glitzy schlock status. (Judy Garland was originally cast in the film, but then proceeded to either quit the production or was fired; for her part, Jacqueline Susann reportedly hated the movie, declaring it a “piece of s–t.”) “Dolls! Dolls! Dolls!: Deep Inside Valley of the Dolls, the Most...
    GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - When Pam Garland challenged her music students to make a difference in their community, she didn’t know what to expect. Garland has been teaching music through Funderful World of Music, the Gainesville-based business she and her husband Tony run, for the last 29 years, and her spring recitals have always had a theme. For this year’s theme, “It’s time to shine,” Garland told each of her students to find a way to do some good in the world “I wasn’t really sure what was going to happen, because we were connected but not,” she said. “I wasn’t hearing a lot about what was going on. When I asked them to start sending in their stories to me with pictures and things that they were doing, I was just brought to tears.” TOP STORIES Coronavirus hype biggest political hoax in history NASCAR rejects advertising from gun...
