Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino says he smoked a couple of joints in college — but that was last time he had marijuana.
The question has become commonplace for political candidates and Astorino just kicked off his campaign Thursday.
Florida seniors Casey Prather, Scottie Wilbekin, Will Yeguete and Patric Young are the heart and soul of the top-ranked Gators.
While they have their sights set on winning a national title, they also have a chance to make history in their home finale Saturday against No. 25 Kentucky (22-8, 12-5).
Northern Ireland authorities say letter bombs have been found at two postal sorting offices, weeks after similar packages were sent to army facilities in England.
Northern Ireland's Protestant First Minister, Peter Robinson, and his Catholic deputy, Martin McGuinness, said the bombers "are opposed to the democratic will of the people and want to drag us back to the past."
One pineapple express after another bringing warm rain across Oregon has helped boost reservoirs west of the Cascades and snowpacks in the northern mountains.
 U. S. Natural Resources Conservation Service hydrologist Julie Koeberle says much of Oregon is still looking at water shortages this summer, particularly in the parched southern tier of the state.
The agency's online reports Friday showed mountain snowpacks, the prime natural water storage system in the West, were still 30 percent of average in the southwestern Oregon basins for the Rogue, Umpqua and Klamath rivers.
The result has been the unusual condition of some flooding in the short term at lower elevations, but drought remaining in the long term, because soils still dry from a lack of rain in the fall are taking a while to soak up the water, she said.
Because the ground didn't get its traditional soaking from fall rains, the melting snowpack will tend to soak in, rather than running off into rivers.
The New Orleans Saints are releasing veteran receiver Lance Moore, a person familiar with the decision said Friday.
Moore entered the NFL with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo in 2005 and joined the Saints' practice squad later that season.
Last season, however, Moore began to lose playing time to rookie receiver Kenny Stills and finished with 37 catches for 457 yards and two TDs, his lowest output in four seasons.
