Battling America’s other PTSD crisis
The fight that started Keith Davis on a path to a new life began when he was buying marijuana. It was early afternoon on Aug. 8. As he tells it, he was in at his usual hangout in North Central Philadelphia, in front of an abandoned church at 18th and Ridge. He was taking too long mulling over his purchase, and another man got impatient and told him to go buy his stuff somewhere else.

Winter storm moves away, eastern U.S. to remain cold
Record-breaking cold gripped the U.S. from Texas to New York on Friday as a winter storm that dropped roughly two feet of snow (61 cm) on parts of the eastern United States moved out to sea.

Connecticut governor to get report on stopping school shootings
By Richard Weizel HARTFORD, Conn. (Reuters) - The Connecticut panel charged by Governor Dannel Malloy with finding ways to reduce school violence after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre is set to present its final recommendations to the governor on Friday. The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission Report includes calls for tougher gun laws, changes to school designs and improved mental health screening and care for troubled students. The commission was established after Adam Lanza, 20, killed 26 children and educators at the elementary school in one of the most horrific school shootings in U.S. history. It will be up to Malloy and the state legislature whether to act on any of the recommendations.
By Brendan O'Brien MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - Weary Wisconsin lawmakers on Friday approved a bill that stops private sector workers from being required to join a union or pay dues as a condition of employment and sent it to Republican Governor Scott Walker, who is expected to sign it on Monday. The Republican-led state Assembly voted 62-35 to make Wisconsin the 25th "right-to-work" state, a measure supported by Walker, an early favorite in the battle for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election. The final vote came after 24 hours of debate in the Assembly and two weeks after state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald announced plans to take up a "right-to-work" bill. "We stand today for a simple, but very powerful concept, the concept for worker freedom," Republican Representative Dean Knudson said.
