    Democrat Charles Booker has railed against Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul as a “barrier” to progress in a solo appearance on statewide television. Booker touted his plans to expand health care access, defended his support for abortion rights and said policymakers must deal with “climate chaos” that he linked to monster storms. With about a month left in the fall campaign, the Democratic Senate challenger had the stage to himself during the half-hour candidate program Monday night on Kentucky Educational Television.

      Chuck Larsen has lived on Sanibel Island for 12 years, and until last week had never experienced a major hurricane.

          The long list of celebrities promoting cryptocurrencies just got shorter. Kim Kardashian is being barred from doing so for three years — and will pay a $1 million fine — to settle federal charges that she recommended a crypto security to her 330 million Instagram followers without making clear that she was paid to do so.

Kardashian is the latest celebrity to get ensnared in regulations that require full disclosure by people getting paid to promote financial products.

          I love October, when the light of summer is fading, and local farmers markets are overflowing with colorful winter squashes in all shapes and sizes.

The president is marking 100 days since the Supreme Court overturned a national right to the procedure. Democrats hope the issue will galvanize their voters to the polls ahead of midterm elections. The White House says Biden will attend the second meeting of the Cabinet-level task force he stood up to coordinate the government’s response to the ruling.

          The NFL isn't passing the eye test on head injuries. Tua Tagovailoa's horrifying concussion came on Thursday night in Cincinnati four days after he came up wobbly after appearing to his his head on the ground on a hit against the Bills.

          Republican Adam Laxalt is trying to capitalize on his military experience and Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto's lack of it as he tries to turn a red seat blue in the swing state of Nevada. The former attorney general served as a judge advocate general in the Navy in Iraq. But he couldn't emphasize that military record much during a sometimes-heated GOP primary. His opponent, retired Army Capt. Sam Brown, was a war hero who was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Now Brown is campaigning for Laxalt, recently appearing with him serving up free hot dogs at the VFW in Reno.

          Asian shares are higher, encouraged by a rally in U.S. shares after some weak economic data raised hopes that the Federal Reserve might ease away from aggressive interest rate hikes. Benchmarks rose in morning trading in Tokyo, Sydney and Seoul. Chinese markets were closed for holidays. Wall Street rallied to its best day since July as falling bond yields eased some of the pressure that’s battered markets. The swing comes as a scattershot market has been mostly falling this year on worries about a possible global recession. The Federal Reserve may not be so aggressive about raising interest rates to beat down high inflation.
