TV dad charged with domestic violence

CAMP VERDE | The father of sextuplets who stars on the cable television show “Raising Sextuplets” has been charged with domestic violence.

Authorities say Bryan Masche, 32, yelled at and threatened his wife and another family member earlier this month at a Camp Verde home.

Mr. Mache’s wife, Jenny, told authorities that the argument stemmed from marital issues and her husband’s desire to take the children to a town where they once lived.

Mr. Masche was arrested on Sept. 11 and posted a $3,500 bond the next day. A court official said he pleaded not guilty to three counts of domestic violence involving disorderly conduct and threats, and a single count of resisting arrest. The show is on WE TV.


Muslim coalition appeals for dialogue

NEW YORK | A coalition of Muslim groups called Monday for interfaith dialogue to combat religious intolerance and said they support the right to build an Islamic center near ground zero.

“We stand for the constitutional right of Muslims, and Americans of all faiths, to build houses of worship anywhere in our nation as allowed by local laws and regulations,” the Muslim leaders said in a statement delivered at the site of the proposed Islamic center in Manhattan, to be called Park51.

They called for a “week of dialogue” the weekend of Oct. 22-24, during which Muslims would conduct open houses at their places of worship to help ease tensions.

The Muslim leaders spoke after a summit Sunday at a hotel near John F. Kennedy International Airport.
