The family of the Sarah Jones, a camera assistant killed while working on the Gregg Allman biopic “Midnight Rider,” was awarded $11.2 million Monday in a civil suit over her death.Jones, 27, was killed in 2014 during the filming of a dream sequence in which William Hurt, playing Allman, occupied a hospital bed on a live railroad trestle above the Altamaha River near Doctortown, Georgia. Director Randall Miller served a year in jail after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing.“CSX is deeply sympathetic to the terrible loss suffered by the family of Ms. Sarah Jones, but respectfully disagrees with the conclusions reached by the jury today and will appeal,” said Rob Doolittle, a spokesman at the Jacksonville, Florida-based company.Attorneys for Jones’ family argued that CSX should have taken precautions to avoid the crash, and said two CSX trains that passed the movie crew before the collision should have reported the group.

- A Grateful Dead wedding rocks the knot
By Alix Wall - Friday Jul 24, 2015
Paula’s dad was on guitar and vocals, her brother on keyboard, an old friend on guitar and her mom on drums.Live music was Steve and Paula’s great love before they met (both are avid fans of the Grateful Dead) so Steve felt right at home with the family band.Steve, 42, is from Sunnyvale but has lived in San Rafael since 2005 and is a project manager for Davey Resource Group.The pair first began noticing each other at local concerts in 2010, but nothing clicked until they were both invited to a mutual friend’s 40th birthday at the Russian River in June of 2011.[...] neither wanted to wait through the weekend, so they had a lobster dinner on Friday night, saw Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings at Stern Grove on Sunday, then attended the ball game together on Monday.“When I would go to hear music, it was all about dancing, I didn’t care about meeting people,” said Paula.Given its location on the yacht harbor, the groom and his groomsmen arrived by boat.The ceremony included Grateful Dead tunes played by a harpist.Mutual friend Scott Jaffke officiated and Steve and Paula spoke lines from Bob Dylan’s “Wedding Song” for their vows.Tables at the reception were named after venues where the Grateful Dead had played, like Barton Hall, Soldier Field and Shoreline Amphitheater.Ryan Kerrigan, a friend and artist, designed a unique wedding favor: a print mimicking the Fillmore’s iconic concert posters, with bride and groom turtles dancing in front of Terrapin Crossroads.[...] one of the most important facets of the wedding was the music, so the couple asked musician friend Jordan Feinstein to put together a rockin’ band.Best man Kip Andersen called the couple “love activists,” and his toast was filled with Grateful Dead references.While one might assume the couple attended the 50th anniversary Grateful Dead “Fare Thee Well” shows in Santa Clara or Chicago for their honeymoon, they didn’t.Miette Bakery cake with dessert buffet by Terrapin Crossroads

Online shoppers looking to score bargains during the Nordstrom anniversary sale instead faced glitches.The Seattle department store chain apologized, tweeting that it was working to resolve the issue.Frustrated shoppers took to social media to vent, with one saying it was “unbelievable” that Nordstrom wasn’t ready to handle the traffic on such a big shopping day.Uber is ceding control of the Russian market by agreeing to merge its ride-hailing business in the country with Yandex, the Russian search-engine leader that also runs a popular taxi-booking app.For Uber, the deal marks the exit from another big market after it sold its operations in China last year to local rival Didi Chuxing.The CEO of Yandex Taxi, Tigran Khudaverdyan, will become the chief executive of the combined company.Long-term U.S. mortgage rates rose this week for the second straight week.Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the rate on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages increased to an average 4.03 percent from 3.96 percent last week.The rate on 15-year, fixed-rate home loans, popular with homeowners who are refinancing their mortgages, rose to 3.29 percent last week from 3.22 percent.Fewer Americans applied for jobless aid last week, as the number of people seeking benefits has stayed near historic lows pointing to a robust job market.The number of people collecting unemployment benefits has fallen 8.8 percent over the past 12 months to 1.9 million.The job market appears solid as the U.S. enters its ninth year of recovery from the Great Recession.Consistent hiring has helped sustain the gradual recovery, although the expansion is starting to show its age as the pace of job gains has slowed this year.An investment group led by a former Chicago alderman and a coalition of labor unions are the new owners of the Chicago Sun-Times, officials announced Thursday.“We are investing in a journalistic voice that’s genuine, accurate and consistently reporting news that matters to the people of Chicago,” said former Alderman Edwin Eisendrath, who will serve as CEO of the Chicago Sun-Times, said in an email.Eisendrath, who left the City Council when President Bill Clinton appointed him to a Department of Housing and Urban Development post, submitted a bid last month after Sun-Times owner Wrapports LLC announced it would enter into discussions with Tronc Inc., which owns the rival Chicago Tribune.
