Thank you to everyone for your support during our search and to our staff for their around-the-clock dedication to bringing Zimm home safely. Thompson said her exhibit, as well as all exhibits at the Memphis Zoo, meet all requirements set by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The happy ending came after the zippy simian, a native of an island in Indonesia, climbed a wall in her exhibit, got through an opening and then ran from the Primate Canyon section.
DORAVILLE, Ga. — Four people, including a former sheriff's deputy, died Friday when a small plane crashed on Interstate 285 in suburban Atlanta. The plane that businessman and former deputy Greg Byrd, 53, of Asheville, N. C. , was flying went down at around 10 a. m. ET near Peachtree Industrial Boulevard here. The Piper PA-32 aircraft took off from Runway 3Right at DeKalb Peachtree Airport then crashed about a mile away, said spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen of the Federal Aviation Administration. It arrived around 9:15 a. m. from Asheville, N. C. , where the plane was based. Also in the plane were Byrd's two sons — Phillip Byrd of Asheville and Christopher Byrd of Atlanta — as well as Christopher Byrd's fiancée, Jackie Kulzer of Atlanta. The two Atlanta residents had boarded the plane at DeKalb Peachtree Airport. The plane was clearly in distress, said witnesses, many who slammed on their brakes on the highway to avoid what was developing. You could see him trying to get the nose of the plane up. It was edging up, and then it just dropped," said motorist Don McGhee, 48, who saw the aircraft nearly hit a traffic light pole near the highway on ramp. The plane had just refueled, said Eric Alleyne, a National Transportation Safety Board air safety investigator. The small plane has no black box, he said, only an emergency locator transmitter that was not needed.

As the ball crossed the rope Cook celebrated, arms aloft, bat held high in one hand, helmet in the other as we had become used to seeing on 25 previous occasions and something many had feared might never be seen again. Cook was to make 105 and was within one more over of batting through the day when he tried, wearily, to cut an off break from Marlon Samuels, got the faintest of under-edges through to Denesh Ramdin and dragged himself back to the backslapping... It was to prove the final delivery of the day, and it left West Indies in good spirits for Cook’s hundred had held together an innings that will be resumed on 240 for seven, a creditable effort from the West Indies bowlers on what is easily the... The only support for Cook came from Moeen Ali, who made 58 comfortable runs before Cook ran him out, and from Joe Root, who batted like a prince for 33 and then was gone. The century had been a long time coming – this was Cook’s 36th innings since he made 130 against New Zealand in May 2013 – but the signs have been there for a while.
