Oregon refuge searched for evidence, explosives after occupiers leave

Heavy equipment set up by the occupiers as a roadblock remains on the road leading to the headquarters to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge outside BurnsBy Jimmy Urquhart BURNS, Ore. (Reuters) - Police and federal agents searched a U.S. wildlife refuge in Oregon for explosives and evidence on Friday, a day after the last holdouts in a protest over federal control of Western land surrendered to end a six-week armed standoff. Federal authorities said the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon would remain closed for several weeks as agents secured what is now considered a crime scene. After their surrender on Thursday, protesters told authorities they had left behind booby traps but did not say whether the trip wires and other devices would trigger explosions, a law enforcement official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told Reuters.

Michigan warning on Flint Legionnaires' outbreak came late

The top of a water tower is seen at the Flint Water Plant in Flint, MichiganState officials knew about an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease and its suspected link to water system issues in impoverished Flint, Michigan, at least 10 months before a public announcement was made, documents released on Friday showed. The state's disclosure of the documents, among thousands of pages of emails and other material released, comes as Michigan's Republican governor, Rick Snyder, faces pressure to resign over his administration's handling of the Flint water crisis. Michigan's Genesee County, which includes Flint, had 87 cases of Legionnaires' from June 2014 to November 2015.

Exclusive: Immigrants arrested in U.S. raids say were misled on right to counsel

File photo of attorney John Antia at Lincoln United Methodist Church in south ChicagoBy Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. immigration authorities violated their own rules by telling some of the 121 Central American women and children they arrested in raids last month that they had no legal recourse to dispute their deportations, according to several of the women and their lawyers. The accusation centers on the Jan. 2-4 raids that were the U.S. administration’s first large-scale operation since mid-2014 to deport hundreds of families who crossed the southern border illegally. Four of the women -- three of them in statements to Reuters through their lawyers and one in an interview with Reuters -- said that ICE agents had misled them on their right to legal counsel while they were detained at a detention facility in Dilley, Texas.

Sparkling 60 lifts Kang to share of Pebble Beach lead

Japan's Hiroshi Iwata during the second round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at the Pebble Beach Golf Links on February 12, 2016South Korea's Kang Sung fired a scintillating 60 to seize a share of the second-round lead in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Friday, never realizing how close he was to golf's magic number of 59. Kang had nine birdies and an eagle in his 11-under effort on the Monterey Peninsula course, one of three in use over the first three rounds of the PGA Tour event. Kang, who notched two victories in Asia in 2013 -- in the C.J. Invitational and Kolon Korea Open -- said he didn't realize Monterey Peninsula played to par-71, unlike the par-72 layouts of Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill.

Korean Kang flirts with a 59 to share Pebble Beach lead
(Reuters) - South Korea's Kang Sung-hoon fell one stroke shy of becoming only the seventh player to shoot a 59 on the PGA Tour as he surged into a tie for the lead after the second round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Friday. Needing a birdie on his final hole at Monterey Peninsula Country Club to dip under 60, Kang hit his "worst shot of the day" off the tee and had to settle for a par three there and a career-best score of 11-under 60. Four-times champion Phil Mickelson was a further stroke back in a three-way tie for third, having also raised hopes of a magical 59 after making an electric start before he lost momentum on his back nine to card a 65 at Monterey Peninsula.

Late-day buying could be start of turnaround

A specialist trader works at his post on the floor of the NYSEThe S&P 500 is down about 13 percent from its record high in May, as oil remains mired below $30 a barrel, while concerns about stability among banks and uncertainty about the U.S. Federal Reserve's path of rate hikes have pushed investors away from risk assets. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago, views that as a positive sign. "My suspicion is that you are seeing institutions nibble at extremely compressed valuations," said Peter Kenny, equity market strategist at Kenny & Co LLC in Denver.

Tougher lending standards pose risk to outlook for Fed

Snow rests on the eagle statue atop the U.S. Federal Reserve in WashingtonA recent tightening of credit for U.S. companies is threatening to undermine economic growth, making it less likely the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates anytime soon. Fed Chair Janet Yellen said this week it was still too soon for the central bank to change its view that rate hikes are needed, a position supported by a still-robust pace of hiring that is helping consumers borrow more readily. "Financial conditions are tightening the Fed's belt," Deutsche Bank, which expects one rate increase this year, said in a note to clients on Friday.
