Steve King faces increasing pressure to resign after 'white supremacy' remarks
Rep. Steve King's base of support, including in his home state of Iowa, continues to erode after comments he made appearing to praise white supremacy were published in the New York Times. The latest salvo came as the Sioux City Journal, a conservative newspaper in Iowa's Fourth District that had previously endorsed the Republican congressman, called on him to resign. "It's hard for us to summon words that will properly convey how repugnant we view that remark," said the paper in response to King asking, "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?" earlier this month.

Wildfire warning: In shutdown, workers fall behind on prep for fire season
A home burns as the Camp Fire rages through Paradise, Calif. (AP Photo/Noah Berger) As the record-setting partial federal shutdown continues, forestry experts worry that furloughing thousands of government workers could exacerbate this year's wildfire season. Lenya Quinn-Davidson, who serves as the Area Fire Advisor for the University of California Cooperative Extension, told Yahoo News that right now workers who would normally be clearing out areas of potential fuel aren't in the field, raising the risk of devastating fires later in the year. Tactics like controlled burns and forest thinning have worked in years past to reduce the severity of fires and limit their size.
