Clancy to resign, take job at Bethel

July 17, 2014

BAUXITE — With the 2014 high school football season quickly approaching, the Bauxite Miners now have to find a new head coach. Shane Clancy, Miners’ coach for last four seasons, announced Tuesday to the team and district that he would be leaving to coach Bethel Middle School in Bryant once the Bryant School Board approves the change next week.

“I am going to miss Bauxite and the people I worked with,” Clancy said. “I am thankful for the opportunity that I had to work here and provide for my family.”

July 17, 2014

WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats suffered what looked like a difficult setback on birth control Wednesday, but they hope it pays big political dividends in November.

Republicans blocked a bill that was designed to override a Supreme Court ruling and ensure access to contraception for women who get their health insurance from companies with religious objections. The vote was 56-43 to move ahead on the legislation — dubbed the "Not My Boss' Business Act" by proponents — four short of the 60 necessary to proceed.

Microsoft to cut up to 18,000 jobs over next year

July 17, 2014

REDMOND, Wash. — Microsoft is cutting up to 18,000 jobs, about 14 percent of its staff, over the next year as it works to cut down on management layers and integrate the Nokia devices business it bought in April.

The news sent Microsoft's stock up 3 percent in premarket trading.

Although the job cuts had been expected, the extent of them was a surprise. It's the boldest move by CEO Satya Nadella since he took the reins from Steve Ballmer in February. In a public email to employees Thursday, he said the changes were needed for the company to "become more agile and move faster."
