Tropical Storm Gordon gains, stays over Atlantic

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Gordon is strengthening over the Atlantic but is expected to move away from the United States on a track over the open ocean.

The storm formed early Thursday and maximum sustained winds were near 50 mph (85 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says Gordon could grow into a hurricane by the weekend.

Gordon is centered about 640 miles (1,035 kilometers) east of Bermuda and imoving northeast at 16 mph (26 kph).

The storm’s forecast track shows it moving over the open waters of the north-central Atlantic for the next two days.

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Depression Hector is weakening and is expected to become a remnant low Thursday night or early Friday.

Romney says he’s paid taxes every year

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

GREER, SC (AP) — Mitt Romney says he’s never paid less than 13 percent of his income in taxes during the past decade.

Romney told reporters Thursday that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s claim that Romney paid no taxes in some years is, quote, “totally false.” Reid has claimed it was possible Romney was refusing to release more than two years of returns because he didn’t want to reveal that he hadn’t paid taxes.

Romney said: “Every year I’ve paid at least 13 percent.”

The Republican presidential candidate says he’s also given generously to charity and that, including those contributions, he’s given up more than 20 percent of his income annually.

Romney has released his 2010 tax return and says he’ll release his 2011 return before the Nov. 6 election.
