Contract Talks Adjourn Amid 5th Day of Port Strike
Dec 2nd 2012, 07:49

Contract talks between striking clerical workers at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and shippers have adjourned for the night.

The walkout has dramatically slowed activity at the nation's busiest cargo complex for the fifth day Saturday as dockworkers refuse to cross picket lines set up by union clerical workers.

Cargo ships were stacking up at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach as a strike by about about 70 clerical workers shut down most of the terminals that together are the nation's busiest port complex. Dockworkers were refusing to cross the picket lines even though an arbitrator ruled the walkout invalid on Tuesday. By Thursday morning, at least 18 ships docked and inside the adjacent harbors were not being serviced, port spokesmen said. (AP Photo/Nick Ut) Close

A spokesman for the International Longshore and Warehouse Union said talks ran until 9:15 p.m. and were scheduled to resume Sunday morning.

The clerical workers have been without a contract for more than two years. The union contends that terminal operators have outsourced local clerical jobs out of state and overseas. The shippers deny the allegation and say they have offered lifelong job security to the 600 or so full-time clerical workers.

Baltimore Blogger Airs Police Talks, Surrenders
Dec 2nd 2012, 06:10

A Baltimore blogger wanted on a court-issued warrant has surrendered peacefully to authorities after broadcasting on Internet radio his negotiations with police who had surrounded his home.

Police said 47-year-old Frank James MacArthur emerged late Saturday evening. He had remained inside his home when officers sought to serve a warrant issued in June by his probation agent stemming from a 2009 gun case. Authorities said MacArthur had missed a court date.

With a tactical unit outside, MacArthur broadcast his talks with a police negotiator on The Baltimore Spectator website. He expressed frustration about his treatment by police, telling listeners, "I am surrounded by a bunch of men with guns."

Lt. Col. Garnell Green said the tactical unit was called in because MacArthur had recently issued threats against officers on Twitter.

Today in History
Dec 2nd 2012, 05:01

Today is Sunday, Dec. 2, the 337th day of 2012. There are 29 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On Dec. 2, 1942, an artificially created, self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was demonstrated for the first time at the University of Chicago.

On this date:

In 1804, Napoleon crowned himself Emperor of the French.

In 1812, the Electoral College chose President James Madison to serve a second term of office.

In 1823, President James Monroe outlined his doctrine opposing European expansion in the Western Hemisphere.

In 1859, militant abolitionist John Brown was hanged for his raid on Harpers Ferry the previous October. Artist Georges-Pierre Seurat was born in Paris.

In 1927, Ford Motor Co. unveiled its Model A automobile that replaced its Model T.

In 1939, New York Municipal Airport-LaGuardia Field (later LaGuardia Airport) went into operation as an airliner from Chicago landed at one minute past midnight.

In 1954, the Senate voted to condemn Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, R-Wis., for conduct that "tends to bring the Senate into disrepute."

In 1961, Cuban leader Fidel Castro declared himself a Marxist-Leninist who would eventually lead Cuba to Communism.

In 1970, the newly created Environmental Protection Agency opened its doors. (Its first director was William D. Ruckelshaus.)

In 1982, in the first operation of its kind, doctors at the University of Utah Medical Center implanted a permanent artificial heart in the chest of retired dentist Dr. Barney Clark, who lived 112 days with the device.

In 1991, American hostage Joseph Cicippio (sih-SIHP'-ee-oh), held captive in Lebanon for more than five years, was released.

In 2001, in one of the largest corporate bankruptcies in U.S. history, Enron filed for Chapter 11 protection.

Ten years ago: A statement attributed to al-Qaida claimed responsibility for the car-bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel in Kenya and the attempted shoot-down of an Israeli airliner, both on Nov. 28. The Supreme Court agreed to decide whether minorities could be given a boost to get into universities. (A divided Court later allowed the nation's colleges and universities to select students based in part on race, but emphasized that race could not be the overriding factor.) Italian interior designer and architect Achille Castiglioni died in Milan at age 84.

Five years ago: Venezuela President Hugo Chavez (OO'-goh CHAH'-vez) suffered defeat as voters rejected sweeping constitutional reforms by 51 to 49 percent. Russian President Vladimir Putin's party swept 70 percent of the seats for a new parliament in a vote whose fairness was called into question by European election monitors. Brian Wilson, Martin Scorsese, Steve Martin, Diana Ross and pianist Leon Fleisher were the latest U.S. artists to receive Kennedy Center honors for their career achievements.

One year ago: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi (ahng sahn soo chee) vowed to work together to promote democratic reforms in Suu Kyi's long-isolated and authoritarian homeland. The Labor Department announced the unemployment rate had fallen to 8.6 percent in Nov. 2011, the lowest since March 2009.
