Signs of the Times

­Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.  (Matthew 5:10-11)

A Pro-life Victory in Kenya

Kenyan medical authorities have banned Marie Stopes, the international abortion provider, from offering any kind of abortion services, reports Breaking Christian News. In September 2018, Marie Stopes was instructed to desist from promoting its services via Kenyan radio networks. The advertisements being run were seen by many as “drumming up” business for abortion with a direct appeal to teenage girls. The advertisements were not only judged to be offensive in terms of taste in this deeply Christian country, but for some they also appeared to be undermining existing Kenyan law on abortion, which only permits abortion in the case of a threat to the life of the mother. Advertising for abortion is not permitted under Kenyan law and is also prohibited under local medical practitioner rules. So, the breaching of the broadcast rules by Marie Stopes in September 2018 initiated an inquiry from Kenyan medical authorities. This resulted in a letter being sent on November 14, 2018 from the Kenyan Medical Practitioners Board to Marie Stopes stating that: “Marie Stopes Kenya is hereby directed to immediately cease and desist offering any form of abortion services in all its facilities within the republic.”

Planned Parenthood Ad Shows Live Baby Girl Says, ‘She Deserves to Be a Choice’

Planned Parenthood found itself engulfed in controversy when an advertisement in support of the organization was recently posted to the internet. The ad in question depicted a short video of a live baby girl before displaying the caption “she deserves to be a choice.” Although the ad is only 40 seconds in duration, it has elicited strong reactions from many who have seen it. Texas Governor Greg Abbott posted his horrified reaction to Twitter, saying: “This has to be a joke.” Patricia Heaton, widely known for her outspoken support of the unborn in infamously liberal Hollywood, took to Twitter to ask: “Um…which ghoul at @PPFA decided this was a good idea? ‘Let’s show a beautiful infant girl, then list the criteria she needs to meet in order to avoid being aborted!” Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire commented that the ad “seems almost to go out of its way to highlight the beauty and lovability of the child. It presents human life—wondrous, miraculous life—and says, ‘Yes, it is good to kill this person.”

  • Attempts to justify child murder show how delusional and insane abortion supporters have become. “Now the Spirit clearly says that in the last times some will depart from the faith and pay attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1)

Christian Worship in the White House

On Tuesday, worship leaders brought Jesus to the White House through praise and worship songs. In videos posted online, several prominent Christian artists and worship leaders are seen gathered in the White House singing popular worship songs like “What a Beautiful Name,” and “How Great Is Our God.” Recording artist Tauren Wells said, “What a privilege to declare the name of Jesus in worship and in prayer today at the White House. I was challenged, informed, convicted, & inspired at the #faithbriefing w/ many peers in the CCM industry. The church has a great opportunity to rise with grace & truth in this hour.” Contemporary Christian band Citizen Way was also present at the Faith Briefing, which according to Faithwire, aimed to update Faith leaders on faith-based initiatives that have been enacted under the Trump administration.

Christianity Under Relentless Attack

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs is being sued for demanding that a Christian organization allow “atheists or other non-Christians to lead their Bible studies” if it wants to be recognized on campus. But the Alliance Defending Freedom went to federal court in Colorado to defend the students. The lawsuit challenges the school’s assumption that it can deny registered status to groups if they select leaders that share the group’s religious perspectives. It also points out other discriminatory actions by the school against the Christian group, including that “non-religious groups are allowed to select members who support their purposes. And the university allows fraternities that admit only men and sororities that admit only women to continue as registered student organizations, in contradiction to the university’s policy against ‘discriminating based on sex.’” ADF Senior Counsel Tyson Langhofer said that despite “claiming inclusiveness and diversity as its core values, the University of Colorado is failing to foster real diversity of thought and is, instead, discriminating against a Christian group based on its beliefs.”

ABC’s Good Morning America celebrated an 11-year-old drag queen as a trailblazer this month, although many viewers pushed back and said the show had crossed the line in sexualizing children. Host Michael Strahan introduced a video of Desmond Napoles — also known as “Desmond Is Amazing” — by saying the child was “inspiring to many” and was “trailblazing” a path for other children. Moments later, after the video, the boy strutted down a runway toward the Good Morning America set, wearing a blonde wig and a yellow and white dress and a lot of makeup. Napoles said his mom doesn’t let him drink caffeine but that she is proud of his drag queen side life. His mom, Wendylou Napoles, then said, “It really touches me deeply that there are other children out there that he’s reaching and they’re listening to him and he’s influencing them to be themselves.” Napoles wore women’s clothes and marched at a gay pride event at age eight.

Federal Judge Blocks Trump’s New Asylum Rules

A federal judge in San Francisco late Monday blocked new rules put into place by President Donald Trump that limit the ability of migrants to request asylum, a legal blow to the administration’s efforts to curb legal immigration and opens the door for more members of the migrant caravan to request asylum in the U.S. U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar ruled that the administration’s new policy of cutting off asylum to migrants who enter the country illegally appears to run afoul of U.S. law that specifically allows them to do so. The 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act states that any foreigner who arrives in the USA, “whether or not at a designated port of arrival,” may apply for asylum. But on Nov. 9, Trump tried to overrule that law, signing a presidential proclamation ending the ability of migrants to request asylum if they enter the country illegally.

Caravan Migrants Sheltered as Mexicans Tell Them to Go Home

Migrants in a caravan of Central Americans scrambled Wednesday to reach the U.S. border, arriving by the hundreds in Tijuana Wednesday, while U.S. authorities across the border were readying razor wire security barriers. More than a dozen members of the migrant caravan were arrested last Wednesday night along U.S.-Tijuana border. A small group was arrested near the beach in an area called Playas de Tijuana. A large group was arrested in the mountains east of Otay Mesa, a San Diego community that straddles the Mexican border, the source said. All were arrested for trying to cross the border illegally. Six Bangladeshi nationals were apprehended at the Texas border with Mexico in two separate incidents within a 12-hour period over the weekend. The migrants paid up to $27,000 each to be moved into the U.S. by cartel-connected human smugglers. Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security said Monday afternoon that more than 500 criminals are traveling with the migrant caravan gathered on the other side of a San Diego border crossing.

Mexicans Tell Caravan Migrants to Go Home

Hundreds of Tijuana residents, opposed to what they described as the “chaos” of the Central American migrant caravan, gathered at a prominent roundabout in Tijuana Sunday morning, before marching to a large, makeshift shelter, which now holds about 2,400 migrants. They chanted “Mexico! Mexico!” and “yes to migrants, no to invaders!” They waved banners and signs with messages urging the migrants to go home and urging the government to take action. The migrants stranded in Tijuana are complaining about cramped living spaces, exposure to the cold at night, limited access to food and safety concerns as the makeshift shelter they’ve been living in is nearing capacity, with more migrants are on the way to this border community. Meanwhile, Mexico and three Central American countries have filed a protest with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights over President Trump’s new asylum policy, arguing their citizens should be allowed to flee their countries to find refuge in the U.S.

MIT-Yale Study Says U.S. Has More Undocumented Aliens Than Reported

The U.S. may have double the number of undocumented immigrants as commonly estimated, according to a new study by MIT and Yale that has the potential to further fuel the debate over one of the nation’s most politically charged topics. While the U.S. government and several outside groups have put the number of undocumented migrants at about 11 million or 12 million, the paper issued Friday by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Yale University gives a “conservative estimate” of 16.7 million in 2016, with an average projection of 22.1 million. The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year — an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America — according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform. FAIR’s opponents in the bitter immigration debate describe the organization as “extremist,” though it is regularly called upon to testify before Congress. In Texas, the additional cost of immigration, $16.4 billion, is equal to the state’s current budget deficit; in California the additional cost of $21.8 billion is $8 billion more than the state’s current budget deficit of $13.8 billion, according to the report.

Robots Are Rapidly Replacing Immigrant Farm Workers

The rationale for immigrant workers has always been “we need them for jobs American’s won’t do.” Within 10 years, 90 percent of human labor on farms and will be replaced by robots, forecasts Technocracy News. Farmworkers at California’s Taylor Farms, one of the world’s largest producers and sellers of fresh-cut vegetables, recently unveiled a fleet of robots designed to replace humans — one of the agriculture industry’s latest answers to a diminishing supply of immigrant labor. The smart machines can assemble 60 to 80 salad bags a minute, double the output of a worker. Enlisting robots made sound economic sense, Taylor Farms officials said, for a company seeking to capitalize on Americans’ insatiable appetite for healthy fare at a time when it cannot recruit enough people to work in the fields or the factory. A decade ago, people lined up by the hundreds for jobs at packing houses in California and Arizona during the lettuce season. No more.

Trump Backs Bipartisan Bill to Reform Sentencing Guidelines

President Trump on Wednesday announced his support for a bipartisan reform of federal sentencing guidelines, an ambitious effort to fix a punitive, decades-old justice system. . The First Step Act, which will still need to pass the Senate, will overhaul the country’s criminal justice sentencing for the first time in a generation and support rehabilitation efforts for federal prisoners and allow judges to exercise more discretion when sentencing nonviolent offenders, particularly for drug offenses. The bill is particularly welcomed for reforming the federal three strikes rule that mandates a life sentence for three or more convictions. Under the new legislation, the convictions would trigger a 25-year sentence instead. Many have received life sentences for minor offenses. The three strikes rule, introduced by then-President Bill Clinton, has long been criticized for exploding U.S. prison populations and the prison system costs, while being an ineffective way to combat crime.

Error in Major Climate Study Revealed

A major new climate study in the journal Nature got worldwide media coverage for finding that the oceans warmed dramatically faster than previously thought — but now the researchers have retracted that conclusion after a man in the United Kingdom blogged about flaws he discovered in the paper. Just two weeks after publication, the study authors have revised their paper, and now conclude that the oceans are warming fast — but at the same rate as other measurements have found. The error was first discovered by Nic Lewis, a retired British man who holds a bachelor’s degree in math from the University of Cambridge and who reads science papers for fun. Lewis said that the reviewers who approved that paper may have looked less closely for errors because the conclusion agreed with the typical belief that global warming is an extreme crisis.

Facebook-New York Times Fight Gets Ugly

Facebook slammed a blockbuster New York Times report for “inaccuracies” and cut ties with a GOP-opposition firm funded by George Soros. The newspaper painted a scathing portrait of Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, the company’s top leaders. In a 6,100-word story, the Times reports that over a two-year period, the social network’s tactics were to delay, deflect and deny as it faced increasing scrutiny over Russian disinformation and the corrosive spread of hate speech. The report also claims that the company’s leadership was not quick enough to combat the growing menace of fake news on its platform. In a Thursday blog post, the Menlo Park, Calif.-based social media giant took issue with numerous aspects of the Times piece. However, in a statement to Fox News, a spokesperson for the Times did not retract any of the conclusions in the report, saying: “Our story is accurate and we stand by it. The months-long investigation by a team of reporters was based on interviews with more than 50 sources including current and former Facebook executives and other employees, lawmakers and government officials, lobbyists and congressional staff members.”

FDA Announces Ban of Menthol Cigarettes, & Restrictions on E-Cigarettes

In sweeping moves intended to curb smoking and vaping among youth, the Food and Drug Administration on Thursday tightened tobacco enforcement, announced plans to ban menthol cigarettes and many flavored small cigars and moved forward with a prohibition on the sale of sweet-flavored electronic cigarette liquid at convenience stores and gas stations. The actions come in response to data released last Thursday that show dramatic increases in vaping among young people. FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb has called the use of nicotine-delivering e-cigarettes by youth an “epidemic.” E-cigarette use was up 78 percent among high school students and 48 percent among middle-school students from 2017 to 2018, according to the 2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey released by the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Deaths by Alcohol Increased 35% Over Last Decade

From 2007 to 2017, the number of deaths attributable to alcohol in the U.S. increased 35 percent to 88,000 in 2017, according to a new analysis by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. Deaths among women rose 67 percent. Deaths among men rose 29 percent. However, teen deaths from drinking were down about 16 percent. The District of Columbia had the highest rate of death from alcohol in the country. The increased death rate in adults has been obscured by the opioid epidemic. But alcohol kills more people each year than overdoses – through cancer, liver cirrhosis, pancreatitis and suicide, among other ways. Less than 60 percent of the U.S. adult population drinks alcohol. Binge drinking accounts for about half of all deaths attributable to alcohol. The Trump Administration’s tax cut last year included an 18 percent break for in the federal tax on beer, wine and liquor, making it cheaper to drink. States with more stringent alcohol control policies had lower rates of binge drinking, according to a 2014 analysis of state laws and taxes.

British Brexit Plan Undermined by Political Chaos

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s efforts to secure her country an orderly withdrawal from the European Union were dealt a major blow Thursday with the abrupt resignation of Dominic Raab, the minister responsible for negotiating Brexit. In his resignation letter, Raab, Britain’s Brexit secretary, said he could not “in good conscience” support the deal because it “presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom.” His resignation comes just hours after May won the support of her bitterly divided Cabinet for a draft deal to leave the EU after months of stalled talks and setbacks that have threatened the messy divorce known as Brexit as well as May’s leadership. But May had to make big concessions to the EU to achieve the deal. Britain. The deal would prevent a “hard border” returning between EU member Ireland and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom and has helped ensure peace there.

Economic News

The wave of selling on Wall Street intensified Tuesday, with big losses in popular tech stocks extending the recent stock market slide and erasing the 2018 gains of the Dow and broad S&P 500 stock index. The selling pressure was again focused in the hard-hit technology sector, where shares of all the so-called FAANG stocks — Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google parent Alphabet — were all lower. All five stocks, which had been leading the market higher during the bull market, are now down more than 20 percent from their highs in the past year, which puts them in bear-market territory. The biggest decliners are Facebook, which has been hounded by data privacy issues, down more than 40 percent from its recent peak, and Netflix, which is off nearly 38 percent. The losses reflect investors bracing for the end of the fantastic economic and profit growth that marked the past year. Analysts expect a deceleration in 2019 driven by tariffs, the fading impact of the tax cuts and higher borrowing costs caused by the Federal Reserve raising interest rates again.

Three of the top four economies are suffering, raising fears of a global economic slowdown which could spread to the U.S. by next year. The economies of Germany and Japan shrank in the third quarter, according to data published Wednesday, providing a sharp contrast to another quarter of strong U.S. growth. In China, there are signs of a deepening economic malaise. Germany’s economy shrank for the first time since 2015 in the third quarter, partially due to a decline in exports as a result of the U.S.-China trade war. Japan’s lackluster third quarter was caused by natural disasters. n China, the world’s second largest economy, new data revealed weaker consumption growth, subdued confidence and disappointing credit growth.

China has just dumped its biggest load of United States treasuries in 8 months.  China’s share of U..S Treasuries holdings had the highest decline since January back in September, as the ongoing and ever-increasing trade tensions with Washington forced the world’s biggest economy to take measures to stabilize its national currency. Although the country is still the biggest foreign holder of the U.S. foreign debt, China has slashed its share by nearly $14 billion, with the country’s holdings falling to $1.15 trillion from nearly $1.17 trillion in August. China is following Japan’s lead, as their share of U.S. Treasuries fell to $1.03 trillion, the lowest since October of 2011. Other nations are also divesting from the dollar as well making the U.S.’s currency highly unstable.

Gas prices are plunging as the Thanksgiving holiday travel period approaches. A dramatic drop in oil prices over the last several weeks is fueling the decline. Gas prices neared a four-year high in October, when they briefly topped $2.90 per gallon, but have since retreated. Ample global supplies of petroleum, which is refined into gasoline,  have played a key role in delivering savings for consumers. The national average was $2.61 per gallon on Tuesday morning, down 14 cents from a week earlier and 22 cents from a month earlier, according to AAA. But those prices are still up 19 cents from a year ago.

Middle East

A senior Israeli official indicated that an Egyptian-mediated ceasefire was reached between Israel and Hamas, as well as other Gaza terrorist groups, last week amid after Hamas had launched more than 400 rockets into Israel, injuring 27 Israelis. Four top ministers opposed the reported ceasefire: Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin and Education Minister Naftali Bennett. Israel avoided early elections after a key coalition partner in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government said on Monday that he would not withdraw his party, keeping the coalition intact despite a crisis triggered by a violent flare-up with Gaza militants. Education Minister Naftali Bennett said his hard-line, pro-settler Jewish Home party would give Netanyahu another chance to address the security challenges facing Israel, listing off threats from Gaza and Lebanon, among others, which he wanted dealt with more firmly. Bennett had earlier threatened to resign and his about-face eased the most serious coalition crisis Israel’s government has faced since it was formed in 2015. He acknowledged that the turnaround could hurt him politically, but said he felt it was in the country’s interests to give Netanyahu one last chance.

The United States has voted for the first time against a U.N. resolution in favor of Syria’s possession of the Golan Heights, which it lost after attacking Israel in the 1967 war. The United Nations General Assembly’s “decolonization committee” voted 152-2 in favor of a resolution attacking Israel’s control of the Golan Heights, with 14 abstentions. The U.S. previously abstained on the resolution, but on Friday it voted “no” for the first time, joined by Israel, which has retained control of the area since Syria and three other Arab nations attacked Israel in 1967’s Six-Day War. The Golan Heights remains a strategic linchpin for Israel, protecting it from the Iranian military, which operates freely in Syria and is sworn to Israel’s destruction, and also from Islamic terror groups such as ISIS. The resolution, which passed along with eight other anti-Israel resolutions, declares Israel’s jurisdiction and administration of “the occupied Syrian Golan” to be “null and void.”

A Palestinian terrorist was shot and critically wounded last week after stabbing four policemen when the terrorist infiltrated a police station and attacked the officers. An initial inquiry indicates that the knife-wielding terrorist scaled the fence of the Armon Hanatziv station. All injured officers, several of them young Border Policemen, were evacuated to Shaare Zedek Hospital in the capital and were later released from the hospital after receiving medical treatment. The Armon Hanatziv neighborhood is situated adjacent to Palestinian neighborhoods, near the hostile neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, which has been the site of several terror attacks, some of them lethal.

Yemen

Intense fighting broke out in Yemen’s port city of Hodeidah late on Monday, shattering a lull in violence that had raised hopes of a ceasefire holding between a Saudi-led coalition and Houthi insurgents as the United Nations tried to resume peace talks. Coalition warplanes conducted more than 10 air strikes on Houthi positions. The coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had last week ordered a halt in its offensive against the Houthi-held Red Sea port city, now a focus of the war, amid pressure from the West to end a conflict that has pushed Yemen to the brink of famine. The two countries also pledged on Tuesday a new $500 million food aid program for Yemen, aiming to reach 10 to 12 million people. The Iranian-aligned Houthi group announced early on Monday it was halting drone and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, the UAE and their Yemeni allies, in one of its biggest concessions since it quit the southern port city of Aden in 2015. The Houthi movement also said it was ready for a broader ceasefire if the coalition “wants peace”. Later Yemeni information minister Moammar al-Eryani said the Houthis had “fired a missile towards Saudi lands.”

Syria

A military operation by a United States-backed Kurdish coalition against the last pockets of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS, in northeast Syria seems far from ending soon. The ISIL is successfully absorbing the attacks of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish as well as Arab and Assyrian militias. Since the start of the SDF offensive in the northeastern province of Deir Az Zor on May 10, ISIL fighters have been blending in with the civilian population, making identifying the group’s members difficult, according to an SDF commander. Despite the fact that ISIL seems doomed militarily, it has powerful sleeper cells who help it to forestall the coalition movements by strewing mines everywhere; in trees, on roads, in fridges, inside toys, and under blankets. Civilians in the area are paying the highest price. The Doctors Without Borders’ hospital in Kurdish-controlled al-Hasaka, 185km north of Deir Az Zor, receives an average of one patient per day with injuries caused by landmines and IEDs. Most of the injured come from Deir Az Zor and more than half are children.

Saudi Arabia

The United States sanctioned 17 Saudi Arabian nationals Thursday in connection with the killing of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The announcement came just hours after Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor said he will seek the death penalty for five suspects among 11 charged in the killing of the Washington Post columnist last month in Istanbul.  Among those sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department was Saud Al-Qahtani, a former senior adviser to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The sanctions immediately freeze the U.S. assets of the 17 individuals targeted and prohibit Americans from doing business with them.

Volcanoes

Guatemalan officials are urging evacuations after increased activity at the Volcano of Fire just months after the volcano killed at least 194 people. Disaster coordination authorities have asked 10 communities in Guatemala to evacuate and go to safe areas. The 10 communities have at least 2,000 residents, but each community will decide if they evacuate or not. The 3,763-meter (12,300-feet) Volcano of Fire is one of the most active in Central America. An eruption in June killed 194 people and left at least 234 missing, although organizations supporting the communities have insisted there are thousands of missing persons. It spewed more ash and lava in October, prompting warnings for the nearby communities.

Wildfires

More than a week after the Camp Fire was sparked in Northern California, the death toll from the deadliest wildfire in state history continues to grow, with the fire 66% contained as of Tuesday morning. At least 79 people have died in the fire, officials said, including seven people whose remains were discovered Thursday. But search teams continue to sift through an estimated 10,000 destroyed structures for signs of the people who remain unaccounted for, an ever-changing list of names amid the frenzy of new and canceled missing-persons reports. The number of missing people increased dramatically over the weekend, to more than 1300. Search efforts to find the remains of victims have taken on a new level of urgency as rain threatens to wash away or muddy evidence of human remains. Three deaths were confirmed in the Woolsey Fire in Southern California bringing the statewide total to eighty. State officials also have another disaster on their hands: air quality so bad that millions couldn’t go outside. A statewide public health emergency was declared because of the smoke billowing from the blazes. Air quality reached such unhealthy levels in parts of the state, especially in the Bay Area, that schools, universities, and businesses closed.

Many people did not receive emergency alert warnings about the Camp Fire, and some who did received them too late. Instead, they learned of the danger not from authorities but through their own eyes and ears, or from concerned friends and family. In a press conference on Tuesday, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea defended the county’s use of the emergency alert system during the fire. He said the situation was “extraordinarily chaotic and rapidly moving” and so it took time for fire experts to get to the scene, determine the fire’s direction and warn the affected people — time they just didn’t have. At one point, the fire was consuming the equivalent of 80 football fields per minute.

Weather

An early winter storm spread chaos and misery from the Midwest to New England to the Deep South last week, causing at least seven deaths and triggering a New York-area commuter nightmare with jammed roadways, fuming travelers, and buses stalled for lack of snow tires. The St. Louis area had as 8 inches of snow, parts of suburban Philadelphia got 5 inches, and sections of New Jersey were on target for 8 inches, while parts of southern New England was bracing for up to to 6 inches as the storm moved east. More than a foot of snow fell across portions of the Poconos in Pennsylvania and the Catskill Mountains in New York and 6 to 10 inches of snow accumulated from western Maryland to northeastern Massachusetts. Parts of upstate New York received more than 18 inches of snow.

Many commuters and students who got stuck in the snowstorm-induced traffic jams that brought the New York City metropolitan area to a grinding halt Thursday night still weren’t home as of Friday morning, as reports emerged of drivers sleeping in their cars and children forced to spend the night at schools. In New Jersey, the West Orange Public School district said as of 9 a.m. Friday it is still working with the police department and city officials to send students home. The district – which serves more than 6,000 students – says it kept some students overnight after numerous buses had to turn around Thursday “due to the number of abandoned vehicles and road conditions throughout the county.”
