Crews work to clean California beach fouled by oil pipeline spill


Volunteers carry buckets of oil from an oil slick along the coast of Refugio State Beach in GoletaBy Alan Devall GOLETA, Calif. (Reuters) - Cleanup crews fanned out across an oil-fouled California beach on Wednesday to scoop up gobs of petroleum spewed from a burst pipeline in what may be the biggest oil spill to hit the pristine but energy-rich Santa Barbara coastline in 46 years. As much as 2,500 barrels (105,000 gallons) of crude oil was released in Tuesday's rupture, according to a "worst-case scenario" presented by the pipeline company, five times more than was initially estimated. Plains All American Pipeline said it calculated that up to a fifth of the total spill had reached the ocean.

A motorcycle is seen on a wrecker before it is removed from the Twin Peaks restaurant, where nine members of a motorcycle gang were shot and killed, in WacoBy Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - About 120 guns and 160 knives were recovered from the scene of a deadly Sunday battle between rival motorcycle gangs in the Texas city of Waco that left nine people dead, police said on Wednesday as they sharply dropped their tally of weapons found. Gang members hid weapons in sacks of flour and bags of chips at the Twin Peaks restaurant, where they attacked each other in a fight that was likely set off by a smoldering turf battle, Waco Police said. Waco Police Sergeant Patrick Swanton told cable channel CNN: "These were vicious gang members that were in our city Sunday." The two main adversaries were motorcycle gangs the Bandidos, seen as the long-standing dominant gang in Texas and called a criminal organization by the U.S. Justice Department, and the Cossacks, which have been challenging them for power in the state, according to experts on the gangs.

Supporters applaud during the minimum wage increase vote as the Los Angeles City Council votes to raise the minimum wage in the city to $15 an hour by 2020, making it the largest city in the nation to do so, in Los Angeles Tuesday, May 19, 2015.
