This exhibition, a joint project of the Newport Historical Society and the Rhode Island Historical Society, was made possible by a grant from the Alletta Morris McBean Charitable Trust.

 

 

A New Mexico judge has dismissed manslaughter charges against Alec Baldwin in his "Rust" trial. Baldwin was rehearsing with a prop gun on the movie set when it went off, firing a live round and killing cinematographer Hutchins in 2021. On Friday, the judge agreed with the defense that the prosecution withheld evidence about on-set ammunition, and ruled the case cannot be re-tried.       President Biden is trying to reassure voters he's up for the job. Speaking to supporters in Detroit, he addressed the issue of his age, saying "I promise you, I'm OK." This comes as he faces more calls from Democrats to drop his re-election bid over concerns about his mental fitness.        A historic heat wave is still scorching the West. Millions from California to Colorado are expected to deal with triple digit temperatures into the weekend. Las Vegas hit six days in row of temperatures at or above 115 degrees yesterday. Today, Vegas will see 115 again, while Phoenix could hit 116 and Sacramento could see 111.        AT&T believes a hacker has stolen records of calls and texts from almost all of its wireless customers. The company announced this morning that the stolen data doesn't include the content of calls or texts, or personal info like Social Security numbers or birth dates. It does include which numbers a customer interacted with, and data like how long a call lasted. AT&T said it's working with law enforcement and at least one person has been apprehended.        A judge is dismissing Rudy Giuliani's bankruptcy case. The judge in the case says the ex-New York City mayor was evasive with his assets. The move now allows creditors, including two defamed Georgia election workers, to collect what they're owed from the former mayor.       It's on to the finals at Wimbledon.
