Germans are facing a new tax on natural gas use that could cost the average household several hundred euros a year and is aimed at rescuing importers slammed by Russian cutbacks tied to the war in Ukraine. An association of gas pipeline operators set the level at 2.4 euro cents per kilowatt hour under legislation passed by the German parliament. The gas tax will raise money to compensate importers of Russian gas whose contracts with city utilities don't permit them to pass on the costs of surging natural gas prices. Russia has sharply cut back supplies of that costs less under long-term contracts, forcing importers to buy much more expensive gas on the spot market.

Nicholas Evans, the British author of the bestselling novel “The Horse Whisperer,” has died at 72. His representatives at United Agents said Evans died “suddenly” on Aug. 9 following a heart attack.

The private ambulance contractor for the Seattle Fire Department paid nearly $1.4 million last year for violating the terms of its contract with Seattle and arriving late to calls. American Medical Response provides basic life support ambulance services. Under the contract, AMR has target response times they must meet at least 90 percent of the time to avoid paying fines. The first AMR ambulance must arrive in under 11.5 minutes. Last year, AMR arrived late around 20 percent of the time. In a statement, a spokesperson for AMR said the longer response times are due to staffing shortages and long wait times at emergency rooms.
