stevenfoley/iStock(CLEAR CREEK, W.Va.) — As crews search for three people believed to be trapped in an abandoned West Virginia mine, their worried loved ones are desperate for their safe rescue. “I want my daughter out,” Randy Williams, the father of trapped woman Kayla Williams, told ABC News. Authorities believe four people illegally entered the Rock House Powellton mine in Clear Creek around 3 a.m. Saturday, officials said. One man managed to escape and said the three others — Kayla Williams, 25, Erica Treadway, 31, and Cody Beverly, 21 — were alive and still inside, officials said Tuesday. “The reason they’re in there is to get copper,” Randy Williams told ABC News. Though the alleged act is illegal, he added, “They’re still our kids… I love every one of them.” As the search continues, the concerned father said he thinks the rescuers “need to be moving a little faster.” A criminal investigation is pending, the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office said, though officials stressed that rescue efforts are the priority. “Our priority is rescuing these individuals and maintaining the safety of our mine rescue teams,” West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice said in a statement Tuesday. “I have ordered the coordination of all resources needed for rescuers to continue to search the mine. We’re doing everything we can to accelerate the rescue.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

We need a voice. We need a seat at the table. The RCLC is our voice.As reflected in the DOE Inspector General report, the RCLC is the only organization in northern New Mexico that speaks for cleanup and improving the lab’s economic impact on our communities.

Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. Netflix/Peter Andrews(NEW YORK) — André Holland had one burning question on his mind when he approached his new Netflix sports-drama, High Flying Bird.The actor, who also serves as an executive producer on the film, plays Ray, a sports agent who has a bold solution during an NBA lockout. Holland tells ABC Radio his intention was to explore the idea of black ownership and what it would mean if black athletes took back the sport they made so popular.“I think the big question that we asked ourselves is, ‘What would it be like if all the black players in the NBA got together and said, ‘You know what, we’re going to start our own league’?” says Holland. Holland also says the film is a response to the rhetoric aimed at NFL players who take a knee in protest of unarmed black shootings.“‘What would it be like if NFL players got together and said the same thing?’” he says. “‘Will we still be arguing about the national anthem protests, or would there be space for that to exist?’ You hear things coming out of a White House, or out of offices — ‘Get those S.O.B.s off the field’ and ‘Shut up and dribble.’ All these other things that to me feel wrong. That was the sort of question that we asked.”Holland says High Flying Bird has been a long time coming. “Every time a lockout happens, as I found out through talking to different sports agents, there are always a group of people who say that, ‘Well, what if we just started our own thing?’” he says. “Eventually people find their way back to the table before that idea really gets too far.” High Flying Bird, also staring Zazie Beetz, is now available.

30 Best-India TodayIdentity Crisis Amartya Sen rightly states that reservation should not be turned into a medium to widen cracks in society (“Politics of Identity”, July 3). A balanced approach, which does justice to our linguistic, cultural, ethnic and religious diversity, would ensure a better future for the country. In,30 Best-India TodayIdentity CrisisAmartya Sen rightly states that reservation should not be turned into a medium to widen cracks in society (“Politics of Identity”, July 3). A balanced approach, which does justice to our linguistic, cultural, ethnic and religious diversity, would ensure a better future for the country. In a big nation like India, it is essential to view the contributions of various cultures in the right perspective. This can be done by historians guided by non-partisan attitudes and will reduce the scope for self-proclaimed guardians and fanatics to create problems under the guise of religion.-Arvind K. Pandey, AllahabadIt is said that politicians think and plan for the next elections whereas statesmen think and plan for the next generation. Unfortunately for us, today we only have politicans who support and pursue policies oriented towards elections.-K.L.R. Prabhu, UdupiTribal TravailsIt is a pity that our tribals remain a badly neglected lot even six decades after Independence (“Living On the Margins”, July 3). Is it because our tribals are not a huge enough vote-bank to be of interest to our politicians? It is true that the tribals have not been able to assert themselves strongly, which is one of the reasons for their marginalisation. That a majority of them live only in forests and hills is another major factor responsible for their social disability. Ramachandra Guha’s article should be distributed to all our “champions of social justice”.-T.S. Pattabhi Raman, CoimbatoreMemorable PeopleClick here to EnlargeMinorities and the scheduled castes have a greater presence in national politics than tribals, but in the state polity tribals are well-represented. Besides Jharkhand, Orissa too had a tribal chief minister. In most states, the tribal welfare portfolio is generally headed by tribal leaders.-Biranchi Narayan Acharya, CuttackPros and ConsThe random assortment of writers and celebrities talking about their favourites made for an interesting read (“My Favourite”, July 3). While I couldn’t agree more with Kunal Basu hailing Jehangir as a mirror to what Delhiites stand for, I found Neena Gupta’s account of Rajani a trifle boring. Madhur Jaffrey raving over dal-chawal betrayed a ridiculous attempt at faux simplicity, while Rajyavardhan Rathod played true to his sport drawing inspiration from Rocky. But Hrithik Roshan’s account of how his dream car, before the release of Kaho Naa.. Pyar Hai, was the Maruti 800 takes the cake.-Alex Paperwala, on emailIt is unfortunate that your cover (“30 Best”, July 3) does not feature a single sportsperson. You seem to have been swayed by the glitz and glamour of Bollywood and fashion, and have not given the world of sports its due importance. While veteran sportsmen like Chandrasekhar and Vijay Amritraj find a place in your articles, one would have liked to read more about the people who won accolades for India in world events.-S. Anirudh, ChennaiThe 30th anniversary issue is well brought out. However, 30 Bharatratnas and 30 Gyanpith awardees needed a mention in this significant issue.-Bheemasn Torgal, on emailOily Politics It is strange to see parties vying with one another to organise protest rallies against the hike in the prices of petrol and diesel (“The Oil Squeeze”, June 26). When in power all parties hike fuel prices, citing the rise in the international market. The government cannot be blamed for international oil prices shooting up. Politicisation of a non-issue smacks of hyprocrisy. Every party is opposing the hike without suggesting a viable alternative. The nation should have a policy of consumption and utilisation of petrol and diesel.-Sai Kishore, GunturThere is an urgent need for an apolitical debate on the oil price hike issue. While the government has a role to play in reviewing the exemption regime and rationalising the tax structure, it is high time we stopped shunning our responsibility. We should go on a conservation drive the way the Japanese did immediately after the oil embargo in 1976.-Sandeep Kumar Kalra, RajkotTough LandingIt was interesting to know that training on the IAF’s outdated planes costs Rs 8 crore whereas training on a Boeing or Airbus costs just under Rs 25 lakh (“No Bailing Out”, June 26). Poor salaries and career prospects, old planes to fly, and to top it all, being made to do desk jobs-no wonder IAF pilots are looking elsewhere. Instead of trying to hang on to a disillusioned cadre, the IAF needs to work on improving working conditions and infrastructure.-Priya Mehta, HyderabadIt is not only pilots who are being denied premature retirement but also officers from other branches- particularly doctors. There are several medical officers whose applications have been rejected despite the fact that they have put in 20-25 years of service and have been superseded. Is it really worthwhile retaining these demotivated officers against their will as bonded labourers? Article 19 of the Constitution of India guarantees fundamental rights to members of the armed forces. The right to pursue a profession/-livelihood of one’s choice has to be preserved.-M.M. Gurbaxani, BangaloreThe Right PackageYou of all people should not be doing this every week- adding a million plastic bags to the national garbage. Please revert to the old system of mailing INDIA TODAY in recycled paper envelopes.-Ashwin Mehta, Valsad, GujaratNot So FitThe story of how physically challenged students dared and achieved what most of us-the so-called fit people- cannot dream of doing is inspiring (“The Daring Dozen”, June 26). While these people certainly do not need our sympathy, they do need our support. Hats off to them.-Gayatri Gahlaut, on emailIt is a pity that in this modern era, when there should be no pre-conceived notions about the ability of the physically challenged, society has still not shed its prejudices. It is unfortunate to read that it required the intervention of the Prime Minister in some cases to help the physically challenged candidates overcome social hurdles.-Bapu Satyanarayana, MysoreQuaint ComebackAfter an inglorious debacle in the elections, Lalu Prasad Yadav is exploring new ways to retain his recall value in the minds of Bihar’s populace (“Marketing Brand Lalu”, June 26). He has turned the railways into a money-spinner and now cheap food products are being named after Lalu, after two IIMs chose him as the subject for a case study. All this makes one wonder where precisely this nation is headed.-Sudhir Shukla, LucknowCorrectionVijay Arora was wrongly referred to as Vijay Anand in the list of 30 most romantic moments, “Straight from the Heart” (“30 Best”, July 3). The error is regretted.BooksLiterary PursuitThe one list of 30 that I cannot comprehend is that of books. I thought it was bizarre, if not downright weird, unless it was supposed to be funny. Sharad Panse, PunePresident Kalam’s best-selling book, Ignited Minds: Unleashing the Power Within India, should have found a place in the “Prime Page Turners” section.S. Balakrishnan, JamshedpurThe section on books was both informative and interesting. It provided an insight into prominent epics, autobiographies and classics that have created history.Monela Shekhar, Delhi advertisementadvertisement
