LEADORE — Pounding 1-inch-diameter, 4-foot-long pieces of rebar into wooden logs and burying the wood into a creek feels like a Sisyphean task. But just as one volunteer’s... More >>

FILE - In this Sept. 27, 2016 file photo, 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, Chief Justice Roger Gregory, gestures during an interview in his office in Richmond, Va. The 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals dealt another blow to President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban targeting six-Muslim majority countries on Thursday, May 25, 2017, siding with groups that say the policy illegally targets Muslims. “Congress granted the president broad power to deny entry to aliens, but that power is not absolute. It cannot go unchecked when, as here, the president wields it through an executive edict that stands to cause irreparable harm to individuals across this nation,” Gregory wrote.

FILE - In this file photo dated Jan. 20, 1961, U.S. President John F. Kennedy delivers his inaugural address at Capitol Hill in Washington, after taking the oath of office. That rallying cry from his inaugural address - "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country" - is etched both in stone and in the minds of generations of Americans. Kennedy didn't make it even halfway to 100 - a milestone he might have celebrated May 29, 2017 - but the slain U.S. president's legacy is being lived out by his descendants. (AP Photo, File)

This Wednesday, May 17, 2017 photo shows the Downtown Miami Charter School in Miami. In 2012, the mother of a second-grade student at the school filed suit after she said she pleaded in vain for months for administrators to protect her son from sexual abuse by an older boy at the charter school. Eventually, the 7-year-old tried to kill himself by walking into traffic with his eyes closed, according to the family’s lawsuit. Two years later, the boy testified, he still had nightmares his tormenter would crawl in through his bedroom window and kill his mother. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)

This undated photo provided by The Nature Conservancy shows birds flying over Silver Creek at The Nature Conservancy's Silver Creek Preserve near Picabo, Idaho. The reputation of what is generally considered Idaho's premier and nationally renowned fly fishing destination has taken a beating with three years of drought. But Silver Creek could get its groove back this opening weekend of the 2017 fishing season with a good water year that is filling the creek and, anglers hope, drawing back trout.
