The headquarters of the New York Air National Guard's 174th Attack Wing is being renamed in honor of a World War II veteran who commanded the unit for nearly 20 years.
Born and raised in the Syracuse area, Irwin was a decorated fighter pilot for the Army Air Corps during WWII, flying P-47 Thunderbolts in the Pacific Theater.
In his work as a behavior and autism support specialist with the Corvallis School District, Jake Dorr often uses graphics called "social stories" to work with students.
Dorr, who also works with students with attention deficit hyperactive disorder and a variety of developmental disabilities, said in a lot of his work he's trying to act as an interpreter, but not just to help students understand things:
 he said, if a teacher gives an assignment in which a student is supposed to dress up as a president and give a presentation about him for the class, Dorr would suggest an alternative version of the assignment for a student who has anxiety about speaking in front of a class.
Dorr said one alternative he suggests is an app called Tellegami, which lets students create an avatar that looks like them and record an audio presentation.
 they can play the presentation and the avatar, which can be placed before a custom background and dressed in different clothes, will move its lips synchronized to audio the student records.
Dorr said he was first inspired to work with people with autism when he was a camp counselor, and had autistic kids in his cabin.
SVC encourages lifelong learning with Road Scholar program
(AP) — Gathered around a map displaying whales of the Salish Sea, about two dozen students politely raised their hands to ask The Whale Museum's Cindy Hansen questions about local mammals.
The men and women sitting in front of Hansen — all at least 50 years old — were taking part in a Road Scholar event hosted by Skagit Valley College's San Juan Center.
Last week, a group of Road Scholar students from throughout the country came to Friday Harbor to learn about the history, culture and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest.
"Engaging your mind is inspiring and uplifting," said Randy Martin, director of the college's San Juan Center and head of its Road Scholar program.
Earlier in the day, the students listened raptly as Shona Aitken, Education Coordinator of Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, showed them a slideshow of local wildlife, including songbirds, raptors, otters and foxes.
When they graduated from high school, their school in New Orleans was an experimental school for gifted students.
Last week's event, "Island Hopping on Three of Washington's San Juan Islands," is one of the more popular Road Scholar events the college offers, Martin said.
Snohomish restaurant provides fishermen a bite from above
Restaurant owner Andy Gibbs delivers food by fishing pole.
Just call in the order and an ETA to be under the bridge and he's there, with the goods and toting his great-grandfather's Viking halibut fishing rod.
The food is put inside an insulated grocery bag hooked onto heavy-duty fishing line that could hold up to 140 pounds.
Everything on the menu except alcohol can be a to-go drop.
Orders are packed tightly, but dangling from a string isn't foolproof.
The Snohomish teens had been out on the water for several hours fishing for humpies when they anchored under the bridge after calling in an order.
Minutes later, Gibbs lowered the black thermal bag over the metal railing to the fishing boat as passing motorists rumbled by on the bridge.
Gibbs grew up working in the restaurant when it was his dad's Chuck's Seafood Grotto.
A release Sunday from the Ministry of Religious Affairs says 28 Indonesian pilgrims are still missing after the Sept. 24 stampede near Islam's holy city of Mecca.
The total figure could be even larger as the AP survey covered only 15 of the more than 180 countries that sent some 2 million pilgrims to the annual pilgrimage.
Awaiting the new Parliament is an intense legislative activity to pass reforms required by the 86-billion-euro ($96 billion) third bailout.
Voutsis, Interior minister in the first Tsipras government from January to August 2015, is expected to adhere closer to the speaker's traditional role, in contrast to Konstantopoulou, who commented, often disapprovingly, on almost every lawmaker's contribution and whose long speeches resembled political manifestos.
