  • Storm May Douse Southern Wildfires

    ATLANTA (AP) — As a strong storm system approached some of the largest wildfires burning in the South, the rain signaled new hope for firefighters working to extinguish the blazes. But the storms also brought high winds, which toppled dead trees and could pose a threat to firefighters, authorities said. Experts predicted that rains Tuesday from one storm system would not be enough to end the relentless drought that's spread across several states and provided fuel for the fires. The storms early Tuesday appeared to be taking aim at the nearly 28,000-acre Rough Ridge Fire in north Georgia and the nearly 25,000-acre Rock Mountain Fire that began in Georgia and then spread deep into North Carolina.

  • Bill Clinton Says Ali "Wrote His Own Story"

    The star-studded service for Muhammad Ali ended with a moment of silence and a closing prayer. His family walked slowly out of the building, headed for a private ceremony at the Muhammad Ali Center a few blocks away. Former President Bill Clinton closed out the memorial service to Ali by calling him a "man of faith" who took "perfect gifts we all have" and released them to the world. Clinton said, "Being a man of faith, he realized he would never be in full control of his life. Something like Parkinson's could come along."
