Norfolk, Va. – Interstate 64 remains has now reopened after a two-vehicle crash involving a car and a tractor-trailer occurred. According to Virginia State Police, a Saturn Ion was traveling east through the tunnel when the driver lost control. The car ran off the left side and hit a wall, which then caused the car to cross over the left lane and into the tractor-trailer in the right lane. However, the fuel tanks on the tractor-trailer were ruptured, causing a fuel leak.
The new Onondaga Nation firehouse has geothermal heating and cooling, linked to wells that run 400 feet deep. Recycled paperbacks provide the fiber used as insulation, between the walls. Last month, just before a Saturday ribbon-cutting officially opened the new building, Onondaga fire chief Ron Shenandoah unlocked the doors and brought in Milton "Sam" Babcock for a private tour. "Look at this," Shenandoah said, gesturing toward a trophy case on a wall. They brought it over from the old fire hall. They refinished it, left it glittering, then put it on the wall. For the formal opening, they asked Babcock to cut the ribbon. At 86, Babcock looks more like he's 60. He was the first fire chief at the nation, about 60 years ago. He and Shenandoah walked to the case and studied rows of old awards, photographs and trophies, some going back to the 1950s. "Everyone," Babcock said, "used to want us to march. One image showed a young Chief Irving Powless Jr. – now an elder in the longhouse – marching at the front of the parade.
ATHENS—Last year, Greece looked as if it were on the way up. The economy was growing—at one point, faster than Germany’s. Politicians talked about a “clean exit” from Greece’s yearslong bailout: no more loans, no more money, no more humiliating reviews by bureaucrats from Brussels. But many Greeks were still on the way down.
