    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — After several school shootings across the U.S., Indiana communities and school officials say the issue of school safety is so important that they plan on taking matters into their own hands because state lawmakers may be slow to act.

    “We can’t wait for the state or federal government,” said Danny Tanoos, superintendent at Vigo County School Corporation in Terre Haute. “Because they have a lot of different rules, regulations and hurdles they have to go over.”

    SINGAPORE (AP) — President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un converged on this island city-state Sunday ahead of one of the most unusual and highly anticipated summits in recent world history, a sit-down meant to settle a standoff over Pyongyang’s nuclear arsenal.

    Trump descended from Air Force One into the steamy Singapore night, greeting officials and declaring he felt “very good,” before he was whisked away to his hotel, driving along a route lined with police and photo-snapping onlookers. Trump traveled to Singapore from Canada, where he met with other world leaders whose countries make up the Group of Seven.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A former employee of the Senate intelligence committee appeared before a federal court Friday on charges that he lied about his contacts with reporters, a case that President Donald Trump said could be a “terrific thing” as his administration tries to crack down on classified leaks.

    James A. Wolfe, the longtime director of security for the committee, was charged Thursday evening with three counts of lying to investigators. The committee is one of multiple congressional panels investigating potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.

    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Undaunted by President Donald Trump’s tough talk on immigration, asylum-seekers are forming unusually long lines at the Mexican border, with parents and children sleeping on cardboard in the sweltering heat and waiting for days or even weeks to present themselves to U.S. inspectors.

    Wait times of a few hours or longer are not uncommon at the border. But the backlogs that have developed over the past several weeks at crossings in California, Arizona and Texas – and people sleeping out in the open for days at a time – are rare.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police 911 audio made public Wednesday offers personal, panicked accounts of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

    In addition, newly released rooftop video from the high-rise casino where the shooter opened fire shows people tending to fallen victims at the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — As police closed in, a man suspected of gunning down four people last week shot himself to death Monday, and authorities said they have linked him to two other slayings beyond those of a prominent psychiatrist, two paralegals and a marriage-and-divorce counselor.

    The first person who was killed had testified in court against Dwight Lamon Jones, court records showed.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Most women with the most common form of early-stage breast cancer can safely skip chemotherapy without hurting their chances of beating the disease, doctors are reporting from a landmark study that used genetic testing to gauge each patient’s risk.

    The study is the largest ever done of breast cancer treatment, and the results are expected to spare up to 70,000 patients a year in the United States and many more elsewhere the ordeal and expense of these drugs.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Friday floated the idea of replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement with two separate trade deals – one with Canada and one with Mexico – adding more uncertainty to trade talks between the three countries that appear to have ground to a halt.

    WASHINGTON (AP) – The Trump administration delivered a gut punch to America’s closest allies Thursday, imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe, Mexico and Canada in a move that drew immediate vows of retaliation.

    Stock prices slumped amid fears of a trade war, with the Dow Jones industrial average falling nearly 252 points, or 1 percent, to 24,415.84.

    NEW YORK (AP) — New guidelines released Wednesday recommend U.S. adults start colon cancer screening earlier, at age 45 instead of 50.

    The American Cancer Society’s advice puts it out of sync with guidelines from an influential government advisory group, which kept the age at 50 in an update two years ago.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Rapid-fire diplomacy played out on two continents Tuesday in advance of an “expected” summit between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the strengthening resolve coming after a series of high-risk, high-reward gambits by the two leaders.

    Officials won’t say that the June 12 Singapore summit is back on, but preparations on both sides of the Pacific are proceeding as if it is. Two weeks of hard-nosed negotiating, including a communications blackout by the North and a public cancellation by the U.S., appeared to be paying off as the two sides engaged in their most substantive talks to date about the meeting.

    Subtropical Storm Alberto lumbered ashore Monday on the U.S. Gulf Coast, pelting white sand beaches with blustery winds and stinging rain that kept the usual Memorial Day crowds away.

    Forecasters warned heavy rain, flash flooding and dangerous surf posed the biggest threats as Alberto’s ragged core made landfall near Laguna Beach in the Florida Panhandle. A few brief tornadoes also were possible in much of Florida and parts of Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama.

    KEYSTONE, S.D. (AP) — The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is getting a $14 million upgrade, though the carved heads of U.S. presidents won’t be touched.

    Maureen McGee-Ballinger is chief of interpretation and education at the popular landmark. She told the Rapid City Journal that the construction is mostly overdue maintenance work.

    “I’ve been here six-and-a-half years, and we’ve asked for it every year,” she said.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress was taking a final step Tuesday toward dismantling a chunk of the rules framework for banks installed to prevent a recurrence of the 2008 financial crisis that brought millions of lost jobs and foreclosed homes.

    The House planned to approve legislation to roll back the Dodd-Frank law, easing rules for banks and notching a legislative win for President Donald Trump, who made gutting the landmark law a campaign promise.
