    BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (AP) — A tsunami watch around the Indian Ocean has been lifted hours after two powerful earthquakes hit off Indonesia's western coast.

    The 8.6- and 8.2-magnitude earthquakes triggered panic Wednesday afternoon. Residents in coastal cities fled to high ground in cars and on the backs of motorcycles.

  • Bobby Petrino fired at Arkansas after 4 seasons

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas fired coach Bobby Petrino on Tuesday, saying he engaged in reckless behavior that included hiring his mistress and then intentionally misleading his bosses about everything from their relationship to her presence at the motorcycle accident that ultimately cost him his job.

    "He made the decision to mislead the public, (and it) adversely affected the university and the football program," athletic director Jeff Long said at an evening news conference, choking up at one point as he discussed telling players the news. There was a "pattern of misleading and manipulative behavior to deceive me."

  • Santorum drops out of GOP race--Video Extra

    GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Bowing to the inevitable after an improbably resilient run for the White House, Rick Santorum quit the presidential race on Tuesday, clearing the way for Mitt Romney to claim the Republican nomination.

    "We made a decision over the weekend, that while this presidential race for us is over, for me, and we will suspend our campaign today, we are not done fighting," he said.

    Santorum, appearing with his family, told supporters that the battle to defeat President Barack Obama would go on but pointedly made no mention or endorsement of Romney, whom he had derided as an unworthy standard-bearer for the GOP.

  • Assets in Action: Welcome back from spring break

    There’s only 33 days of school left, if you don’t count weekends. So what will you do?
    It isn’t too early to ponder what the summer holds for youth and after some down time, they need something to do.
    There are lots of programs and projects for youth, but usually not a budget to constantly promote them.
    The Los Alamos Youth Food Project will be running full steam ahead, so if gardening is your SPARK, then learn more from The Family YMCA.
    The Bradbury Science Museum usually has fun in store and some youth ambassadors to assist in their educational outreach.
