MIAMI — A migrant sailboat overloaded with people arrived in the shallow waters Monday evening off the Middle Florida Keys, federal officials said.
The people on board are likely Haitians — and their arrival comes just two days after a group of more than 300 people from Haiti arrived in a sailboat that grounded off the exclusive Ocean Reef resort community in north Key Largo.

PHILADELPHIA — Recently retired Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has been named the honorary co-chair of the of the National Constitution Center’s board of trustees, where he joins Justice Neil Gorsuch, who has served in that position since 2019.
The Denver Broncos are the 14th different NFL team for journeyman quarterback Josh Johnson. The 36-year-old Johnson brings a wealth of experience as he tries to earn the backup role behind Russell Wilson. Johnson has been signed or re-signed 27 times by NFL teams since being drafted in the fifth round by Tampa Bay in 2008. He’s also had a stint in the XFL. He says he’s just trying to enjoy every minute of every moment. He hopes to keeping playing until he’s 40.
The Justice Department has asked a court to unseal the search warrant the FBI received before searching the Florida estate of former President Donald Trump, Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday. Garland cited the “substantial public interest in this matter” in announcing the request at a hastily scheduled Justice Department news conference. Garland also said that he personally approved the search warrant, which was part of an ongoing Justice Department investigation into the discovery of classified White House records recovered from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida earlier this year.
The nation’s top public health agency is relaxing its COVID-19 guidelines and dropping the recommendation that Americans quarantine themselves if they come into close contact with an infected person. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also said Thursday that people no longer need to stay at least 6 feet away from others. The changes are driven by a recognition that — more than 2 1/2 years since the start of the pandemic — an estimated 95% of Americans 16 and older have acquired some level of immunity, either from being vaccinated or infected.
Congressional panel leaders say an additional 135 million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine from a troubled Baltimore factory will have to be destroyed due to quality problems. The announcement Thursday follows a report in May that detailed how more than 400 million vaccine doses made at the Emergent BioSolutions plant would have to be trashed.  The latest round of doses slated for destruction were made between August 2021 and February. Johnson & Johnson says that no doses produced at the site since the factory restarted have reached the market.
The South Carolina Supreme Court delivered another loss Wednesday to restaurant owners seeking insurance payouts over COVID-19 losses. The justices say that just because the Carolina Ale House franchise lost the use of their locations due to indoor dining restrictions, they did not suffer physical loss or damage. In its ruling, the high court joins several other state courts in siding with insurance companies. Both the Iowa and Massachusetts Supreme Courts ruled in April that restaurants could not collect damages following pandemic dining restrictions. The window of opportunity for filing these insurance challenges is also closing as most policies have a two-year limitation period.
LOS ANGELES — With California enduring historic drought amplified by global warming, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday released a new plan to adapt to the state’s hotter, drier future by capturing and storing more water, recycling more wastewater and desalinating seawater and salty groundwater.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has asked the state courts to allow her to implement a 2018 law banning most abortions. The law was permanently blocked by a judge in 2019 as unconstitutional. Reynolds previously said she planned to take the matter to court instead of calling a special session to hold a divisive abortion debate and vote just months before she and several other Republican leaders run for reelection. The court filing Thursday is just the first step in a legal battle that could take months to resolve and is likely to end up before the state Supreme Court again. The law would ban abortions once cardiac activity is detected, usually around six weeks of pregnancy.
Congress is expected on Friday to pass a major bill that includes close to $375 billion in spending related to fighting climate change. The bill, called the Inflation Reduction Act, will infuse cash, subsidies and tax breaks into various sectors of the economy, all aimed at making green energy much cheaper.
Vegas Golden Knights goalie Robin Lehner will require hip surgery and is expected to miss the upcoming season. The 31-year-old Lehner will likely spend the entire 2022-23 season on long-term injured reserve. The team said no timeline for his recovery has been determined yet. Lehner started 44 games for the Golden Knights last season and finished 23-17-2. He has three years remaining on a contract that carries a $5 million annual cap hit.
With graves marked only with numbers, not names, burial services were held for 11 more unidentified bodies found in Bucha. That’s the town outside the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv which saw hundreds of people slaughtered under Russian occupation early in the war.  Under a grim gray sky, the two women and eight men were buried Thursday following their discovery in a mass grave near the town’s Church of Andrew the Apostle. The 11th victim had been shot dead and found in a village 10 miles away. The civilian killings at Bucha have become a symbol of brutality of the war. They were carried out as Russia launched a failed effort to capture the Ukrainian capital.

The family of the late Shirley Jackson has authorized a novel inspired by her classic “The Haunting of Hill House.” Elizabeth Hand’s “A Haunting on the Hill” is scheduled for fall 2023. It’s the first time Jackson’s estate has approved an original narrative based on the author’s work. The literary standing of Jackson has risen sharply over the past decade. The author has been widely praised as a master of suspense, horror and psychological insight. Many of her books have been reissued, including some in bound volumes from the Library of America. Her family has overseen the posthumous release of unpublished stories and letters. Jackson died in 1965 at age 48.
Scientists in Germany attached tiny trackers to giant moths looking for clues about insect migration. In a study published Thursday, researchers followed moths around in a small airplane to map out their journeys. They found that the moths flew in straight paths and used different strategies to deal with changing wind conditions. The research suggests that the moths have strong navigation skills, challenging earlier ideas that migrating insects are mostly getting blown around by the wind. Many questions remain about insect migration, which brings trillions of creatures across the globe each year.

Ezra Miller is the subject of a joint investigation between Vermont police and the state’s Department for Children and Families after the embattled actor was suspected of keeping a mother and her three children at their farm.
The movie “Mack & Rita” — which adds grandma chic to two things no one needs on screen like lazy filmmaking and a tired old concept — can be distilled into one word: cringe. Associated Press critic Mark Kennedy says virtually no one associated with this film should be congratulated in any way, having ruptured any bridges between Hollywood and senior citizens or for the shocking misuse of Diane Keaton’s considerable skills. “Mack & Rita,” which opens Friday in cinemas, takes the traditional body-swap concept — think “Big,” “Freaky Friday,” “13 Going on 30” and even “Jumanji” — and makes it worse, much worse.
Authorities say the search for a New Hampshire girl who disappeared at age 5 in 2019 but was not reported missing until late last year is now considered a homicide investigation. New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella said Thursday that authorities have concluded that Harmony was murdered. Police first became aware that she might be missing when they received a call from the girl’s mother in November. Harmony’s father and stepmother have since pleaded not guilty to charges related to her well-being.
A person with direct knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press the New York Jets and offensive tackle Duane Brown have agreed to terms on a two-year contract. The move Thursday came three days after the Jets learned they likely lost Mekhi Becton for the season because of a knee injury suffered in practice. The person spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the signing. Brown turns 37 on Aug. 30. He visited the Jets and attended their scrimmage at MetLife Stadium last Saturday night.
Patrick Mahomes will start the Kansas City Chiefs’ preseason opener in Chicago on Saturday. That bucks a trend across the NFL of coaches sitting their starting quarterbacks for the first of their three exhibition games. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Thursday he would stick to his usual routine of having each of the four quarterbacks in camp play for a quarter of the preseason opener. And while he acknowledged the number of snaps could change based on the way the game is going, Reid thinks it’s important for everybody to get onto the field in some capacity.

The Denver Broncos’ new owners have tabbed NFL International CEO Damani Leech as the team’s new president. He replaces Joe Ellis, who stepped down following the league’s approval of the new Walton-Penner ownership group. Leech brings 25 years of sports executive experience to the job. He spent 17 years with the NCAA’s national offices in Indianapolis and eight with the NFL’s league office, where he focused on growing the game internationally.

New England Patriots running back James White has announced his retirement after eight seasons. The 30-year-old White spent his entire career with the Patriots and won three Super Bowls. He’s best remembered for scoring the game-winning touchdown in New England’s historic comeback win over Atlanta in Super Bowl 51. White set Super Bowl records for points scored in a game with 20 and receptions with 14 as the Patriots rallied from a 28-3 deficit to win 34-28 in overtime on Feb. 5, 2017. It was the largest comeback in Super Bowl history. White was a reliable receiver out of the backfield. His 2021 season was cut short by a dislocated hip.

A jury in Wisconsin has convicted a man accused of intentionally targeting a motorcyclist in a fatal crash because of the victim’s race. Daniel Navarro, a 27-year-old Mexican American from Fond du Lac, was convicted Wednesday of first-degree intentional homicide as a hate crime in a July 3, 2020, crash that killed Phillip Thiessen, a retired law enforcement officer who was white. Authorities said Navarro didn’t know Thiessen. Officials say Navarro told investigators he had been verbally attacked by white people because of his race. Because Navarro pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect, his trial moves to the next phase to determine his mental state at the time of the crash. That will help determine whether he is sentenced to prison or a mental health facility.
The popular Cape Cod resort of Provincetown has declared a sewer emergency and ordered restaurants to close immediately along a section of its bustling waterfront. Officials in the Massachusetts town said Thursday in a Facebook post that residential property on the affected sewer system must also reduce water use, including flushing toilets only “when absolutely necessary. ” Officials say that all public restrooms will also be shuttered Thursday and Friday and that portable toilets will be provided. They say the sewer shutdown during the busy summer season was necessary to prevent a further public health emergency after a thunderstorm taxed the sewer system.
Who doesn’t love Diane Keaton? Or frankly, want to be Diane Keaton? The Oscar-winning star has had a film and television career spanning six decades, she’s a fashion icon, and she’s done it all in her own singularly unique and quirky way. It’s not surprising then, that in the fantastical and…
An international media watchdog has urged Pakistan to free a TV news director arrested the previous day over an alleged anti-army broadcast and return the station on air. Thursday’s appeal by Paris-based Reporters Without Borders came a day after Pakistani police arrested Ammad Yousaf, a senior executive at the private ARY Television in the southern port city of Karachi. Pakistan’s media regulatory body also shuttered the station. The arrest followed a Monday interview with Shahbaz Gill, chief of staff at Tehreek-e-Insaf opposition party, who urged Pakistani troops and officers to refuse to obey “illegal orders” from the military — remarks that were seen by authorities as incitement to mutiny. Police have also arrested Gill on treason charges .

A second firefighter has died in Cuba, where crews have controlled a massive blaze that began last week at a key oil storage facility amid a deepening energy crisis. The 24-year-old firefighter identified as Elier Correa had been hospitalized in critical condition, Cubadebate reported Thursday. Another 14 firefighters are missing after lightning on Friday sparked the fire, which has injured 130 people and destroyed four of the facility’s eight tanks. The blaze also forced officials to evacuate more than 4,900 people and temporarily shut down a thermoelectric plant after it ran out of water as countries including Mexico, Venezuela and Bolivia sent help.
