BOB BECKSTEAD - Massena Daily Courier

MASSENA — When Nick Baxter opens his business for lunch each weekday, he can expect a line to start forming quickly and not wind down for about 2 to 2½ hours.

In fact, sometimes the line has already started before he opens the business.

Mr. Baxter is the owner and operator of the Anita Burrito food truck, which can be found parked on South Main Street between the Sunoco gas station and the Healthy Way store starting around 10:30 a.m. weekdays. Once he opens, it’s a steady flow of customers.

Diane Buckner · CBC News

Canadian entrepreneurs are busy developing a wide range of new ways to use recreational cannabis in a socially acceptable way — without having to roll or smoke a joint.

Native News Online Staff

WINDOW ROCK – Last week, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit granted the Navajo Nation’s request to overturn a decision of the Arizona District Court holding that the Nation’s claim that the United States had breached its fiduciary duty to the Navajo Nation in decisions regarding the management of the Colorado River was barred by sovereign immunity.  Attorney General Ethel Branch explained the significance of the ruling: “The decision in Navajo Nation v. Department of Interior, 9th Circuit No. 14-16864, is particularly important for tribes within the jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit because it clarifies that Congress has waived the immunity of the United States for all suits for injunctive and declaratory relief that do not seek money damages.”
