The ship would transport up to 4.8 million liters of diesel - equivalent to 150 tankers - to enable industry to focus on providing jet fuel to crisis-hit Auckland airport, Energy and Resources Minister Judith Collins said on Thursday

    The Kelly Walsh boys and girls took different paths to winning the Wyoming State High School Class 4A Golf Championships in Evanston. The boys team needed to put in some extra work, beating Cheyenne East on the first playoff hole to win its first state title since 2012. The girls team, on the other hand, was hardly challenged in posting a 56-stroke victory over runner-up Natrona County to repeat as state champion

    BLOUNT COUNTY, Ala. — Blount County officials say their new drone tech is the only one of its kind in the state of Alabama.

    Losing a loved one, a family member or a child is hard. For many, the grief can be unbearable. When a loved one dies of a drug overdose, a new layer of stigma, shame and guilt can compound those emotions and make the grieving process nearly impossible. “When someone dies in a car accident or someone dies say of cancer or some other illness, people rally around that family,” said Beth Bitler, program director for the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance
