1)

YOU THOUGHT KILUEA WAS A SCARY VOLCANO? ASK THE FOLKS IN GUATEMALA...

The Big Island is still dealing with Kiluea, but Guatemala's Volcan del Fuego has already buried entire villages (and probably hundreds of people) in volcanic ash. Hawaii is getting off easy... so far.

Refugees living in the Syracuse area fish there to feed their families, but the fish they catch are loading their bloodstreams with lead and mercury. Advisories are in place, but are missed or ignored, and health authorities are trying to get the word out.

3)

JUDGE TELLS MICHAEL ROTUNDO TO GET OFF HIS ROTUND BUTT AND FIND WORK

Rotundo, now evicted from his parents' Camillus home, tells the court he can't cover $2600 in late child support payments. The judge is having none of it: "Go find a job. That's the bottom line." 

4)
