FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The Fargo Roman Catholic Diocese says it suspended a priest after a woman alleged she was sexually abused as a teenager in the 1970s.

The diocese confirmed the suspension to KFGO radio this week after the woman recently told the station she was inappropriately touched by the Rev. Jack Herron at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Fargo. The woman says she reported it to the diocese in spring 2018.

The statement says Herron was retired and serving as a hospital chaplain outside the diocese when the allegations were reported. Herron is not being allowed to carry out his work as a priest pending the outcome of investigations.

Diocese spokesman Paul Braun declined to comment beyond the statement. Herron did not return a phone message to KFGO.

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — ESPN’s Bob Ley, who has been a fixture at the network since its launch 40 years ago, announced his retirement on Wednesday.The 64-year-old Ley made the announcement on social media. He tweeted that he’s enjoying the “best of health” and that the decision to retire was “entirely” his own.”I feel good about it. It is the right decision at the right time in my life, for the right reasons,” he said during an appearance on “Outside the Lines,” the show he anchored from its launch in 1990 until last year, when he left on a sabbatical.Ley was ESPN’s longest-tenured anchor, joining “SportsCenter” on the channel’s third day of operation on Sept. 9, 1979.”If there is a single word to describe all that Ley contributed, all the ways in which he helped build ESPN, it would simply be integrity,” host Jeremy Schapp said during an “Outside the Lines” segment recapping Ley’s career.ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro said Ley set “the standard of excellence” with his “unwavering commitment and unparalleled work ethic.”Ley hosted the first NCAA selection show and the inaugural live broadcast of the NFL draft in 1980. He also anchored many of sports biggest news stories over the past 40 years, including the Boston Marathon bombing and the death of Muhammad Ali.

He also provided the first live national reports during the earthquake in San Francisco at the 1989 World Series.

The investigative program “Outside the Lines” will be Ley’s legacy at the network. It started as a series of specials, became a weekly show in 2000 and then began airing daily three years later.

On “Outside the Lines,” Ley led reporting on concussions and the NFL’s handling of domestic violence cases. The show also gave extensive coverage to the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse findings at Penn State, which resulted in the resignation of coach Joe Paterno, and former U.S. gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar’s history of sexual abuse.

“Outside the Lines” has received four Edward R. Murrow Awards and two Peabody Awards.

“Bob Ley has always been ESPN’s North Star. From the moment we went on the air 40 years ago until right now, he has guided us in the right direction. He has kept us honest,” NFL studio host Chris Berman said in a statement.

Ley, who won 11 Sports Emmy Awards, was inducted into the National Sports Media Association Hall of Fame this week. He said he plans to work with Seton Hall University, his alma mater, in retirement.

Ley said he was proud to be a part of ESPN, as well as building “Outside the Lines” and his coverage of soccer.

“I’m proudest of being at the ground floor of something that has become an American cultural institution,” he said. “I don’t think you can write the cultural history of the United States over the past 40 years without being a chapter on sports and this entity, which is now a global model.”


In world and national news…

SAN MARTIN, El Salvador (AP) — The mother of a man who drowned alongside his 23-month-old daughter while trying to cross the Rio Grande into Texas says she feels a hole that “nobody can fill.”

Rosa Ramírez says she begged Oscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez not to leave, and if he had to, to leave young Valeria with her.

The two were swept away by the current Sunday near Matamoros, Mexico, and Brownsville, Texas. A photo of the discovery of their bodies shows the girl tucked into Martínez’s shirt for protection and her arm draped over his neck.

Ramirez told AP on Wednesday that the image is “tough” and “shocking.” But at the same time she sees “tenderness.”

In her words: “You can see how he protected her, they died in each other’s arms.”



MOSCOW (AP) — The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump on the sidelines of an international summit in Japan.

Trump has said he plans to meet with Putin during the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, and Putin has welcomed a meeting, saying he’s ready for dialogue.

Wednesday’s statement by Putin’s foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, marks official Kremlin acknowledgement of the meeting.

Ushakov said the meeting is set for Friday and is expected to touch on arms control and international crises, including the Iranian nuclear deal, Syria, North Korea and Ukraine.



WASHINGTON (AP) — The opening debates by Democrats running for president will feature 60-second answers, a prime-time television audience in the millions, and a chance for little-known candidates to introduce themselves to voters.

Tuesday night’s session and the second night Wednesday are expected to be exercises in competitive sound bites as the candidates set out to convey their plans for the nation, throw a few elbows and sharpen what’s been a blur of a race so far for many Americans.

Each two-hour debate will have 10 candidates hoping to oust President Donald Trump in 2020. The hopefuls range widely in age, sex and backgrounds and include a former vice president, six women and a pair of mayors.

The debates will be carried at 9 p.m. Eastern on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo.



PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony said two additional deputies have been fired as a result of an internal affairs investigation into the agency’s response to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that killed 17 people.

Tony said during a news conference Wednesday morning that deputies Edward Eason and Josh Stambaugh were fired Tuesday for their inaction following the Feb. 14, 2018, shooting.

Two other deputies were fired earlier this month for neglect of duty. One of those was school resource officer Scot Peterson, who was also arrested for child neglect, culpable negligence and perjury.

The sheriff said no action was taken on three other deputies.



PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The divide in Oregon between the state’s liberal urban centers and its conservative rural areas makes it ripe for the political crisis unfolding over sweeping climate legislation.

Eleven Republican senators are entering the seventh day of a walkout to deny the supermajority Democrats the quorum needed to vote on a cap-and-trade bill that would be the second of its kind in the U.S.

The stalemate has drawn international attention to Oregon, in part because right-wing militias have rallied to the Republican cause.

Experts say the standoff was inevitable given the state’s political make-up.

Big cities lean left, but about 40% of Oregon residents — mostly in rural areas — vote Republican.



SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Survivors of clergy abuse and their attorneys complain that presidential hopeful Kamala Harris was silent on the Catholic Church’s abuse scandal when she was district attorney in San Francisco and later California’s attorney general.

They say the U.S. senator’s record on fighting sex abuse within the Catholic Church is relevant as she campaigns for the presidency as a tough-on-crime ex-prosecutor who got her start prosecuting child sexual abuse cases.

In a statement to The Associated Press, the Harris campaign underscored her record of supporting child sex abuse victims but did not address her silence regarding victims abused by Catholic clerics. The statement noted that she “used her position as District Attorney to create the first unit focused on child sexual assault cases in the office’s history.”
