David Cassidy is in critical condition as his organs are failing, his rep confirmed to the Daily News.Cassidy, 67, was rushed to the hospital about three days ago and is in desperate need of a liver transplant. Both his liver and kidney are failing, according to his rep.
“The Partridge Family” star’s health has been failing for more than two months, sources close to the family told TMZ, who was the first to report his hospitalization.
A rep for the actor said he was “currently conscious and surrounded by family,” but was previously induced in a coma. His rep told The News he was admitted to the hospital “either Wednesday or Thursday” for being “very ill.”
It is unclear what is causing his organs to shut down.Cassidy revealed in February that he was diagnosed with dementia in 2015. He opened up about his battle with the disease on “Dr. Phil” after he fell on stage and forgot the lyrics to his own song during a concert in Angoura Hills, Calif. earlier that month.
“When friends of yours or family members begin to say to you, ‘Remember, I just told you this two days ago,’ and there’s no memory of it, that’s when I began to be very concerned,” he shared at the time.
Cassidy’s fall fueled speculation that hey may have been drunk, considering he was arrested for three DUIs since 2010. A judge ordered the star to rehab in 2014.Sources close to the family said they were reportedly told to expect “the worst” on Saturday.
The former actor and singer is best-known for his role as Keith Partridge on the 1970s sitcom “The Partridge Family,” which aired from 1970-1974.
An Ohio Republican state legislator who consistently touts his faith and his anti-LGBT stances resigned this week after being caught having sex with a man in his office.Representative Wes Goodman, who is married, was reportedly seen by someone who is not a staffer having sex with a man inside his Riffe Center office. The witness told Ohio House Chief of Staff Mike Dittoe of the situation early Tuesday afternoon, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
Dittoe told House Speaker Republican Cliff Rosenberger, who met with Goodman. Shortly after the meeting, Goodman resigned due to “inappropriate conduct.”
This comes as a surprise to many constituents because Goodman has consistently spoken about “natural marriage” being between a man and a woman. His campaign website, which is now offline, outlined his views on a family: “Healthy, vibrant, thriving, values-driven families are the source of Ohio’s proud history and the key to Ohio’s future greatness. The ideals of a loving father and mother, a committed natural marriage, and a caring community are well worth pursuing and protecting.”
Goodman’s twitter bio describes him as “Christian. American. Conservative. Republican. Husband to @Beth1027.” His tweets are protected and his account is private. His Facebook page has been taken offline.
Rosenberger told cleveland.com that the interaction was between Goodman and a person not employed by the legislature and that it happened several months ago but was brought to his attention only recently.
“I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behavior related to his state office,” Rosenberger said in a statement to the Columbus Dispatch. “I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations. It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution.”There have been no charges or complaints of sexual harassment filed.
Goodman said in a statement to the Columbus Dispatch: “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life. That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service. For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life, I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends.”
He is the second state lawmaker in Ohio to resign in the past month after inappropriate actions came to light. Former Republican state Senator Cliff Hite resigned last month after he allegedly made sexual propositions to a state employee multiple times.
Nolan Royer jumped out of airplanes. He white-water kayaked and climbed mountains. And on Friday night, according to his mom, he drowned in a children’s pool in a Saskatoon hotel.Jodie Lonsberry is still trying to process how her 17-year-old athlete son could have died playing a game to see who could stay underwater the longest.
She said he and his siblings were in the hotel pool with friends during a staycation at the Sheraton Cavalier Saskatoon Hotel.
“And then Nolan just didn’t come up,” said Lonsberry.
“And by the time people realized something was wrong, it was too late.”
Sheraton Cavalier Saskatoon Hotel general manager Dale Grant said it was a tragedy.
“We had a guest, a young man that drowned in our swimming pool on Friday night,” said Grant.
Lonsberry said paramedics tried frantically to save Royer and they briefly revived his heartbeat. But by morning, the young man had died.
“He was 17, almost 18, and he died in a kids’ pool playing a game that he played over and over and over again,” she said.
“And never in my wildest imagination would I have thought something like this could ever happen.”
He was ‘that kid’ Lonsberry said her son was “that kid,” a high-end athlete and a good teen who never gave his parents any trouble. He ran marathons and biathlon, and he was an army cadet who was accepted into an elite parachuting course. Royer had been offered a position to teach parachuting in Trenton, Ont., next summer.
A tribute to Royer posted through his Facebook page described him as “an extraordinary human being with the purest of hearts and souls. His smile was infectious and invigorating, and his uplifting personality was always a joy to be around.”Mom says parents should warn their children This week, Lonsberry said the North Saskatchewan Regiment Army Cadet Corps was flying its flag at half-mast.
The Holy Cross High School he attended has also offered messages of support to the family, she said.
Lonsberry said she is speaking out because she wants other parents to know what she thought was a harmless game could be lethal.
“I just want to make sure people know that it’s a possibility and to warn your children,” she said.
“And it doesn’t matter how good of a swimmer or how athletic you are or your age or whatever, it can happen in a kiddie pool.”
Police say death non-suspicious Lonsberry said authorities had obtained video of the incident from the hotel. Police confirmed Royer’s death had been deemed non-suspicious.
MELBOURNE BEACH, Fla. — Somewhere, someone is missing a very large block of cocaine.Brevard County sheriff’s deputies retrieved the large block of powdered narcotic about 11 a.m. ET Friday after it washed ashore just south of Melbourne Beach. Some media reports estimated it to be about 50 pounds, nearly 23 kilos.
The cocaine — or coke as it’s commonly known — was found on the beach in the 3000 block of State Road A1A by an unidentified beachcomber, not far from where a 45-foot sailboat from the Florida Keys — the Cuki — ran aground following Hurricane Irma’s rampage through the state.
It was unclear where the sea-faring package might have come from. Authorities say such drugs typically either fall off a boat or are tossed overboard. The block may have traveled a long distance, possibly battered by the rough waves that have pounded Brevard County’s shoreline in recent weeks.
It was not immediately known what street value the cocaine might be or if it was rendered worthless and waterlogged by its journey over the sea. According to Business Insider, the price of cocaine has been relatively stable in the U.S for a couple of decades, at about $150 per pure gram.
“You would think that South Florida would get the cocaine washing up — not middle, or central Florida. It’s a surprise,” Richard Threlfall, who was visiting the beach, told WFTV-TV.It is not the first time such a package has washed ashore along the Atlantic coastline in east central Florida. Bales of marijuana — known as square groupers — have also made landfall along the county’s 72-mile-shoreline from time to time. In recent years, a sprinkling of other unintended spills from cargo ships and other vessels have brought cans of coffee and other items.
On Friday, the Sheriff’s Office immediately removed the package. The Sheriff’s Office has not yet responded to inquiries about the cocaine or what might happen to it.
More than $70,000 in donations have poured into a crowdfunding site set up for the cyclist who was fired from her job for making a rude gesture to President Donald Trump’s motorcade.
More than 3,000 donations — from $5 to $250 — have rolled in since November 6, when the GoFundMe campaign was set up on behalf of Juli Briskman.
Briskman’s raised middle finger was caught by news photographers as Trump’s motorcade passed her on October 28 as he left Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia. The image immediately went viral.
Three days later, the 50-year-old marketing executive was fired by her company, government contractor Akima.
“Thank you Juli Briskman,” wrote Rob Mello, who set up the GoFundMe account, calling her “an inspiration to us all.”
All the money raised goes directly to Briskman, he says on the site.
