APNewsBreak: Medicare
 bought meds for dead people
Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke hits DA Chisholm for ‘witch-hunt,’ supports special prosecutor

WASHINGTON — Call it drugs for the departed: Medicare's prescription program kept paying for costly medications even after patients were dead. The problem was traced back to a head-scratching bureaucratic rule that's now getting a second look.

 

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. assailed District Attorney John Chisholm for “abuse of prosecutorial power” and announced his support for an independent prosecutor to investigate the DA.  Both men are Democrats, although Clarke is well known as a conservative. The outspoken African-American sheriff has often clashed with the more liberal Democrats who dominate Milwaukee politics, including Chisholm.
Bumgarner, Giants beat 
KC 3-2 to win World Series
San Francisco to mark 
World Series win with parade

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A giant, indeed. Madison Bumgarner punctuated his World Series performance for the ages by pitching the San Francisco Giants to their third championship in five years with a 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. The big left-hander came out of the bullpen to throw five scoreless innings on two days' rest, saving a Series pushed to the limit.

SAN FRANCISCO — Police say up to 2 million Giants fans could turn out to cheer the World Series champions in a downtown San Francisco parade featuring double-decker buses for the players and floats of the Golden Gate Bridge. One of the floats will be of a panda in honor of third-baseman Pablo Sandoval. Teammates have nicknamed Sandoval "Kung Fu Panda."
Inmate freed in landmark Illinois case Hawaii town shows how
 to live with lava
CHICAGO — A prisoner whose confession helped free a death row inmate in a case that was instrumental to ending capital punishment in Illinois was released Thursday after he recanted, and a prosecutor said there was powerful evidence that the other man was responsible.

PAHOA, Hawaii — Ten miles from the Hawaii town of Pahoa that is being menaced by a stream of lava from Kilauea volcano, there's another community that was almost entirely swallowed by the molten rock nearly 30 years ago. Today, a few dozen recently built homes sit on Kalapana's rolling black fields — offering a glimpse of life after lava.

 

Life goes on for nurse 
in standoff over Ebola
Captured: Manhunt ends
 for trooper ambush suspect
FORT KENT, Maine — In between going on a bike ride and taking delivery of a pizza, nurse Kaci Hickox and her boyfriend did chores and watched a movie while state officials struggled to reach a compromise in a standoff that has become the nation's most closely watched clash between personal freedom and fear of Ebola. BLOOMING GROVE, Pa — They searched for him in impenetrable woods and forbidding caves, in schools and vacation homes and even in a roadside clothing donation bin, all the while hoping that ambush suspect Eric Frein wouldn't take a potshot at them from some unseen, distant perch.
