State Parole Board rejects Joyce Mitchell’s bid for early release

Malone Telegram

MALONE — Joyce Mitchell, the former Clinton Correctional Facility tailor shop supervisor who was convicted of helping two murderers escape from the prison in 2015, was denied early release in her first bid for parole.

“Your release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and ... there is a reasonable probability that you would not live and remain at liberty without again violating the law,” a three-member panel of the state Board of Parole wrote in a decision released Monday afternoon.

Trump team fosters fears he’ll adopt alternative economic facts


President Donald Trump complains regularly about what he calls “fake news.” What’s got some statisticians worried, though, is the risk of doctored economic data coming from the administration itself.

China wins big with stakes in $22 billion Abu Dhabi oil deal


Chinese companies are big winners in the competition among foreign bidders for stakes in Abu Dhabi’s largest oil concession, snatching a combined 12 percent of the venture as the Middle Eastern emirate looks increasingly to Asia, its biggest market, for investment.

Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. awarded a 4 percent stake in the onshore venture — the last share of the project that was still up for grabs — to Shanghai-based CEFC China Energy Co., Adnoc said Monday in an e-mailed statement. CEFC is paying an $888 million signing bonus, Adnoc said. The announcement came one day after China National Petroleum Corp. agreed to buy 8 percent of the same concession for $1.8 billion.

John Paul Tasker, CBC News

Ottawa and the provinces have failed to reach a deal on health-care funding, despite a $11.5-billion pledge by the federal government to boost targeted spending on home care and mental health.

The federal government has now taken that offer off the table, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Monday, and the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) spending increase will revert to 3 per cent a year as of April 1, 2017.
