Former New York Governor George Pataki says he will seek the Republican nomination for president. Video provided by Newsy Newslook

63 72 1LINKEDIN 45COMMENTMORE

George Pataki made it official Thursday, stressing his three terms as New York governor in announcing he would seek the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

“I was a Republican governor in a very deep blue state,” Pataki said in a video posted along with his campaign website.

Pataki has his work cut out for him in a Republican field that will likely have more than a dozen candidates; he barely registers in a new Quinnipiac Poll of GOP candidates.

In his video, Pataki said he would work to reduce the size and power ofgovernment, ease the nation’s political divisions and improve national security; he cited his experience as governor in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in New York City.

“If we are to flourish as a people, we have to fall in love with America again,” Pataki said in a video.

Pataki has a kickoff campaign event Thursday in New Hampshire.

On paper, Pataki’s credentials are impressive. He defeated liberal icon Mario Cuomo in 1994 to win the first of his three terms as governor of New York, one of the nation’s largest, and bluest, states.

But his bid is unquestionably a long shot. He didn’t register at all in a Fox News poll taken earlier this month among likely GOP primary voters, and he’s largely been off the national stage since exiting the governor’s office at the end of 2006.

He’s even taken to making self-deprecating cracks about his status within the Republican presidential field. At a town hall in New Hampshire earlier this year, an attendee suggested he was a “second-tier kind of candidate.” According to The Daily Beast, Pataki deadpanned: “You are moving me up, then!”

This is not the first time Pataki, 69, has considered a presidential run. He mulled but ultimately passed on White House bids in 2000, 2008 and 2012.

Pataki has touted his ability to win states where Republicans have not traditionally fared well, but his more moderate stances on issues such as abortion will be tough to overcome among more conservative GOP primary voters.

Alyssa Renee Ramirez of Devine, Texas, died after floodwater swept away her car.

8:13 PM ET            Tuesday May 26, 2015

There was nothing, it seemed, that Alyssa Renee Ramirez couldn’t do.

She had friends everywhere in her hometown of Devine, Texas, southwest of San Antonio. At Devine High School, she was student council president and co-editor of the yearbook. She starred on the tennis and volleyball teams, not to mention as a cheerleader. And the reigning homecoming queen had one last dance in her Saturday night, as she, her date and their friends lived it up at prom.

Ramirez never made it home. Her car got caught up in fast-moving floodwater, ending her short but illustrious life and leaving her classmates crestfallen.

“She was a good person,” Amber Contreras told CNN affiliate WOAI, fighting back tears over the news her friend is gone. “I was like, it can’t be happening.”

But it did, around 2:45 a.m. (3:45 a.m. ET) Sunday within sight of Ramirez’s home about two miles away. Torrential rains made it near impossible to see, including the sight of a road inundated with floodwater.

Once the teenager got stuck, her aunt Roberta Ramirez told CNN, she called 911 then called her father.

“He just told her to stay put, I’m on my way,” Roberta Ramirez said. “But by the time he got there, the water was just torrential. There was such force so that even if she had gotten out of the vehicle, it probably would have carried her away.”

Now, rather than getting ready to graduate on June 5 and pursuing her plans of becoming an optometrist, Ramirez will be buried Wednesday. Her family and friends are finding solace in their belief she’s gone to heaven, pointing to her strong Christian faith.

“Any time you saw her, you couldn’t help but smile, no mater what kind of mood you were in,” said Alyssa Schmidt, one of the teen’s close friends. “Her love for God, as soon as you started talking to her, that was the first thing you found out, was how much she loved him and how much she wanted to live out his word.”

In an online post nine days before her death, the family says, Ramirez wrote about faith growing “through hardship (and) in a desert of tribulation.”

“Even though it is never pleasant to experience hardship,” she said, “it teaches us to persevere and to cling to God. He will never desert us.”‘

AUTO START: ON | OFF

Kyle Schwartz teaches third grade at Doull Elementary in Denver.

Although she says her students are a pleasure to look after, the educator of three years adds that many of them come from underprivileged homes.

“Ninety-two percent of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch,” Schwartz tells ABC News. “As a new teacher, I struggled to understand the reality of my students’ lives and how to best support them. I just felt like there was something I didn’t know about my students.”

PHOTO: The students notes sparked a social media movement on Twitter.

In a bid to build trust between her and her students, Schwartz thought up a lesson plan called “I Wish My Teacher Knew.”

For the activity, Schwartz’s third graders jot down a thought for their teacher, sharing something they’d like her to know about them.

“I let students determine if they would like to answer anonymously,” she says. “I have found that most students are not only willing to include their name, but also enjoy sharing with the class. Even when what my students are sharing is sensitive in nature, most students want their classmates to know.

PHOTO: Schwartz was shocked by her students honesty.

“Some notes are heartbreaking like the first #iwishmyteacherknew tweet which read, ‘I wish my teacher knew I don’t have pencils at home to do my homework.’ I care deeply about each and every one of my students and I don’t want any of them to have to suffer the consequences of living in poverty, which is my main motivation for teaching.”

Blown away by her class’ honesty, Schwartz shared some of the notes on Twitter using the hashtag #IWishMyTeacherKnew, encouraging fellow teachers to employ the same lesson with their own students.

The tweets and photos of notes from other schools came pouring in from around the world.

“I think it caught on so fast because teachers are highly collaborative and freely share and explore resources,” Schwartz says. “In the end, all teachers want to support their students, and #iwishmyteacherknew is a simple and powerful way to do that.

PHOTO: Schwartz uses the hashtag #IWishMyTeacherKnew to share notes with other teachers worldwide.

“Building community in my classroom is a major goal of this lesson. After one student shared that she had no one to play with at recess, the rest of the class chimed in and said, ‘we got your back.’ The next day during recess, I noticed she was playing with a group of girls. Not only can I support my students, but my students can support each other.”

Schwartz says she also hopes her lesson can help her connect students and their families with the proper resources they need to live comfortably.

Iona Costello, 51, and her 14-year-old daughter Emily (pictured) have been missing for almost three weeks after last being seen on March 3

An eastern Long Island widow and her 14-year-old have been missing for almost three weeks after a trip to New York City to see a play.

Iona Costello, 51, and her daughter Emily, from Greenport, were going into the city when they were last seen on March 30 near their home in the the wealthy seaside village.

Their car was found in a parking garage on 42nd street in Manhattan,  but the pair, who often went into the city for theater and art museums, left no other trace of their whereabouts.

Relatives of the family, who own a horse farm on Long Island’s North Fork, reported them missing on Tuesday.

‘She said she was going to Manhattan for Easter,’ Iona’s mother Diana Malcolmson told Daily Mail Online.

The grandmother, who lives in nearby Shelter Island, New York, said police told her that surveillance footage from the parking garage showed Mrs Costello and Emily walking away from their car on March 30, holding suitcases and laughing.

She said that she spoke regularly with her daughter, but had not heard about any plans for extended vacations.

Iona Costello also has family in England, though they have not heard from her, according to Southold Local.

While trips into New York were fairly normal, Emily being out of school is not.

The ninth grader had been scheduled to return to Ross School in East Hampton from her Spring Break this past Tuesday.

Iona Costello's husband George, the co-owner of Costello Marine in Greenport, died from a heart attack in 2012

The mother had told workers at her farm that she would be ‘back on Tuesday’ but did not return on March 31st, April 7th or April 14th.

Workers at the horse farm say it is strange for Mrs Costello not to be in contact with them about raising the animals.

Southold police Chief of Police Martin Flatley told Daily Mail Online that his force do not expect any foul play.

He said that he does not currently have any hard evidence to point to the mother and daughter being in danger.

Relative Jane Costello said that calls to both Iona’s and Emily’s phones go straight to voicemail.

Police still say they do not expect any foul play in the case, though workers at the Costello's North Fork farm say that she would normally be in contact about the business's affairs

Mrs Costello was a well-known equestrian in eastern Long Island, according to the East Hampton Star.

Iona’s husband George, co-owner of construction company Costello Marine in Greenport, died at the age of 63 a heart attack in 2012.

The pair had married in 1999.

It is not believed that the Costellos owned any property in New York, according to Chief Flatley, though authorities are now looking at a wider circle of relatives that may know about their movements in the city.

A spokesperson for the NYPD said that city police are working in conjunction with Southold officers, but have not yet received any sightings of the mother and daughter.

Southold Police have asked anyone who sees Mrs Costello or her daughter to contact them at 631-765-2600.

PHOTO: A Delaware family of four became ill after staying at a resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands where they were allegedly exposed to pesticides.

An entire Delaware family fell seriously ill while on a Caribbean vacation, and a dangerous chemical allegedly used at their hotel may be to blame.

What happened:

In March, school administrator Steve Esmond, his wife Dr. Theresa Devine and their two teenage sons may have been exposed to the pesticide methyl bromide at the Sirenusa Resort on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, according to a report on ABC station WPVI-TV.

The day the family arrived at their second floor condo, the apartment below them was sprayed with methyl bromide to “deal with an indoor bug,” according to Judith Enck, Administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 2 Office, which covers the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The pesticide was applied during the day of March 19, Enck said, and by that night, the entire family “started having adverse health effects.” Both boys had seizures, according to Enck.

Paramedics responded and took the family to a hospital on neighboring island St. Thomas. The boys were then airlifted to a hospital in Philadelphia, Enck said, while the parents were airlifted to a hospital in Delaware.

According to the EPA, methyl bromide exposure can have short-term and long-term effects include severe lung injuries and neurological impairment.

The EPA banned methyl bromide for indoor residential use in 1984, Enck told ABC News today, but the product is still on the market for agricultural use.

The family:

Steve Esmond and his sons remain in very critical condition, Enck said today, adding that Devine is not in critical condition.

Steve Esmond is the head of the middle school at the Tatnall School in Wilmington, Delaware, according to the school’s website. Theresa Devine is a dentist in Broomall, Pennsylvania, according to the company website.

“They’re just one of those families that everyone loves to be around,” Oliver Campbell, a peer of one of the boys, told WPVI-TV. “It’s just horrible.”

“It’s terrifying,” another peer, Carl Marvin, said to WPVI-TV. “It’s really scary to think that this could happen to somebody that you know.”

The investigation:

The EPA has launched a “comprehensive investigation,” Enck said. Officials were sent to sample and monitor the apartments to see if any of the pesticide was left.

“We’re looking at what happened here, which we consider an illegal application of methyl bromide,” Enck said.

The EPA also issued a pesticide warning in the Caribbean and is examining if methyl bromide was used in other locations in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Department of Justice is investigating Terminix, the company that applied the pesticide, Enck confirmed.

Terminix has halted all fumigation in the Virgin Islands as part of the ongoing investigation, said Peter Tosches, Terminix’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications.

“First and foremost, the family is in our thoughts and prayers,” Terminix said in a statement. “We’re cooperating with authorities in their investigation, and we’re conducting our own thorough investigation in the matter. We’re committed to performing all work we undertake in a way that is safe for our employees, customers and the public.”

Sea Glass Vacations, which acts as a rental agent for several rental units at Sirenusa, said in a statement, “Our deepest sympathies go out to the family and all of those impacted by this accident. Our thoughts and prayers hope for a full and speedy recovery.”

“We are also aware that authorities are actively investigating the possibility that the illnesses were due to chemicals used for pest control. The unit immediately below Villa Capri was recently treated for pests by Terminix, however, Villa Capri itself had not been so treated,” the statement from Sea Glass Vacations added. “Sea Glass Vacations does not treat the units it manages for pests but instead relies on licensed professionals for pest control services. We are committed to full cooperation with all the authorities currently investigating this matter.”

PHOTO: The Norfolk, Virginia police are continuing to search for 18-year-old Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell, who has been missing since March 2, 2015.

A new tip in the case of an 18-year-old college student who has been missing for a month led police to search a pond about 40 miles away from the coastal Virginia town of Norfolk, where she was last seen.

Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell was last seen on March 2, according to the Norfolk Police Department. On Friday, authorities searched a pond in Carrsville, Virginia after receiving a tip, according to ABC affiliate WVEC-TV.

Carrsville resident Steven Hines told WVEC-TV that he saw divers in the water but didn’t know what they were searching for.

Hines also said police showed him a photo of a white van, which he had seen drive through the area twice about a week and a half ago, WVEC-TV reports.

Police were continuing search efforts and haven’t ruled out any possibilities, Sam Shenouda of the Norfolk Police Department told ABC News today.

Hadsell, a freshman at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, was home for spring break when she disappeared from her family’s home in Norfolk.

Two days later, Norfolk police received a tip that Hadsell had been seen on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University, two hours away from where she was last seen by her family.

Investigators have said there is no evidence of foul play, but her family and friends say she wouldn’t disappear on purpose.

“This is not Anjelica,” her friend Andre Barr told ABC News. “We all know her, we know how she would act and this is not — this is out of character.”

Police describe Hadsell as standing 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds.
