Montana
Superior: A man is facing an assault charge after authorities say someone saw him throw a 13-year-old boy to the ground because the teenager didn’t remove his hat when the national anthem was played at a rodeo. The boy was taken to a hospital, but details about his condition were not released. The witness, Taylor Hennick, told the Missoulian she was at the rodeo Saturday when she heard a “pop” and saw the boy on the ground, bleeding from his ears. The assailant justified his actions by saying the boy “was disrespecting the national anthem, so he had every right to do that,” Hennick said. Curt James Brockway, 39, of Superior, Montana, made an initial court appearance Monday on a charge of assault on a minor. Prosecutors recommended his bail be set at $100,000. Brockway is a registered violent offender after being convicted of a 2010 charge of assault with a weapon.

Omaha: Construction has begun on a free lodging facility for families of sick or injured Nebraska and western Iowa veterans being treated at the veterans hospital in Omaha. The Omaha World-Herald reports the $8 million Fisher House will include 16 hotel-style suites at a site near the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. It is funded by the Fisher House Foundation with local donations and will be given to the VA when complete to operate as a federal building. It is expected to open in late 2020. There are more than 80 Fisher Houses at military and veterans hospitals around the United States, as well as two in Europe. The program was begun in 1990 by philanthropist and real estate developer Zachary Fisher.

When coal jobs leave an Appalachian town, what happens to the families left behind?

HARLAN, Ky. – It began to rain as the last of a handful of cars pulled up to the small white church, tucked between steep Appalachian hillsides overgrown by kudzu.
Inside, Jason Powers, a tattooed pastor and third-generation coal miner, greeted worshipers weighed down with worry as they sat among blue-cushioned pews for the weeknight service.
Powers and many of his flock have been out of work since the latest coal company bankruptcy.
Layoffs in Harlan County are nothing new. But this one landed like a gut punch.
More than a quarter of the county’s miners were left jobless when Blackjewel and Revelation Energy closed mines July 1.
Not only did the closings come without warning, but the company's bounced paychecks had left miners struggling to pay mortgages and buy groceries.
Howard’s June 28 paycheck bounced. Across Harlan, Howard and other miners found their bank accounts overdrawn, jeopardizing payments on houses, cars and utilities.
Some local mining suppliers and businesses were owed hundreds of thousands of dollars. At Don’s Super Saver, a local family grocery cashed more than $93,000 in bad checks.
The couple’s dining table sat outside their house, covered with a blue tarp. Furniture was stacked nearby. They were waiting on a rental company to pick up furniture, a TV and iPhones for nonpayment after her husband’s layoff left them more than $2,700 overdrawn.
Not only did the closings come without warning, but the company’s bounced paychecks had left miners struggling to pay mortgages and buy groceries.
