City Council Special Meeting - Apr 03 2023





Social media is flooded with posts about a sonic boom near the nation's capital. Turns out, it was F-16 fighter jets from Joint Base Andrews cleared to travel at supersonic speed yesterday afternoon. They were dispatched to check on a small plane flying erratically, in which the pilot was unconscious and ended up crashing, leaving no survivors.       The Supreme Court will take up a case on whether a man can trademark the phrase "Trump too small." California attorney Steve Elster tried to trademark the slogan to use for T-shirts and hats, but was denied by the U.S. patent and trademark office which argued he needed the written consent of Donald Trump. An appeals court last year ruled against the trademark office, saying the denial violated Elster's free speech rights.       Police in Florida are one step closer to finding all the suspects responsible for a mass shooting in Hollywood. A fourth suspect was arrested last night in connection to last week's shooting on the Broadwalk that injured nine people. Authorities are looking for one more suspect.        General Motors plans to invest more than one-billion dollars in two Michigan plants to gear up for production of next-generation heavy-duty trucks. Most of the funding will be used to prepare its Flint Assembly plant for new gas and diesel trucks. The move comes despite GM's commitment to switch to all-electric vehicles by 2035.        A #BOYCOTTNASCAR hashtag reportedly is picking up speed after the company tweeted an image showing support for the LGBTQ community. Millions of people commented, with most of them saying they'll no longer support the racing organization. NASCAR's officials previously said their Drive for Diversity initiative has resulted in the sport being more diverse than at any other time in its existence.       The Buffalo Bills' Damar Hamlin is launching a nationwide CPR training tour through his new foundation. When the 25-year-old safety went into cardiac arrest during a game against the Bengals last January, CPR and an automatic external defibrillator saved his life. On Saturday, he was at the Bills' Highmark Stadium distributing AED's to 50 youth sports and community groups.
