Broadway star buys home he says was built by slaves, promises to ‘fill it with love’

Broadway star Robert Hartwell shared the historical significance of his latest purchase, a home that was built by slaves in 1820.

Hartwell, who starred in “Hello Dolly!” and “Motown the Musical,” posted a photo on Instagram of himself smiling in front of his new home and opened up about what it means to him.

“3 weeks ago I found this house online. I said, ‘this is my house.’ I called the seller and was told it was a cash only offer and that ‘I’m sure that takes you off the table,'” he wrote. “Don’t you ever underestimate a hard working black man.”

When Hartwell toured the home last week, he said it confirmed his hunch that it was the perfect place for him to call home.

Hartwell didn’t disclose the location of the home, but shared some insight into its history.

“The house was built in 1820 for the Russell

Teen dies after group home staff sat on him for throwing bread, Michigan report says

A teen who died after employees of a Michigan group home sat on him for throwing sandwich bread was improperly restrained, and staff failed to quickly provide medical help, state officials say.

An investigation report about the death of Cornelius Fredericks — a 16-year-old boy who lived at Lakeside Academy in Kalamazoo, Michigan — says staff members restrained the teen for 12 minutes as he struggled to breathe while other employees stood by without correcting them. Fredericks, who suffered cardiac arrest, died two days later on May 1, officials say.

“Throwing bread is not a demonstration of imminent threat of harm to self or others and did not warrant physical management,” according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services report obtained by McClatchy News.

On Monday, Jonathan Marko, an attorney for Fredericks’ estate, filed a lawsuit against Lakeside Academy and Sequel Youth and Family Services, the

California orders residents to wear masks outside the home

By Dan Whitcomb

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – California on Thursday ordered residents to wear masks at nearly all times outside the home, saying the strict new rule was necessary because too many Californians were failing or refusing to cover their faces during the coronavirus pandemic.

The mandate is one of the broadest of any U.S. state, requiring Californians to wear masks any time they leave their homes, with exceptions made for people eating and drinking in restaurants or exercising outdoors, as long as they maintain 6 feet of physical distance.

“Simply put, we are seeing too many people with faces uncovered, putting at risk the real progress we have made in fighting the disease,” Governor Gavin Newsom said.

Newsom did not say how the state intended to enforce the order, which recommends masks even for people driving alone in their cars.

A spokeswoman for the California Department of Public Health,

Saul insists Atletico Madrid is his ‘home’ as Man Utd links continue

Saul Niguez insisted Atletico Madrid remains his “home” despite transfer speculation, revealing he has never spoken to any club over a potential move elsewhere.

Saul signed a nine-year contract extension with Atleti in 2017, though the long-term deal has not stopped rumours about the Spain international’s future in the capital.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with the midfielder, as the club continues to rebuild under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Saul, however, claims he is unaware if anything has gone further than stories in the media.

The midfielder also made it clear that he is happy with his life in Madrid as he aims to help Diego Simeone’s squad seal a top-four finish in La Liga this season.

“I see things on Instagram or in newspapers which you publish, but I haven’t heard anything from any club,” Saul told Radio Marca.

“I’m focused on finishing this season, achieving the objective [of
