WASHINGTON â€” The U.S. government was poised to partially shut down for the first time in 17 years late on Monday, as House Republicans clung tenaciously to their demand that any agreement to fund federal agencies must also undermine President Barack Obamaâ€™s 2010 health care law.
With a midnight deadline fast approaching, the House voted 228 to 201 to approve the third GOP proposal in two weeks to fund the government â€” a plan that would delay enforcement of the â€śindividual mandate,â€ť a cornerstone of the legislation that requires all Americans to obtain health coverage in 2014.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” With his trial less than a week away, a man admitted his guilt to attempted murder and several other charges.
Dakota Kimbler, 18, of Rome City, had a trial scheduled for today and Wednesday.
After his final pretrial conference Sept. 23 in Whitley County Circuit Court, Kimbler pleaded guilty later that week.
In addition to attempted murder, Kimbler also pleaded guilty to attempted carjacking, possession of stolen property and possession of a handgun without a license.
