When Beth Moody saw a recent ad on Facebook that the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was asking "citizen historians" to crowdsource articles about the Holocaust from 1933 to 1945 from local newspapers, she didn't hesitate.
Thomas Jefferson would most likely flip his wig over the current state of politics, but it's safe to assume he'd be pleased with the condition of Charlottesville, Va., which served as both his home and artistic playpen.
If there is one destination in Florida that encompasses the rich tapestry of the Sunshine State's 503 years, the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument - the iconic fortress in St. Augustine - is it. The massive coquina-and-tabby structure located on Matanzas Bay has been a sentinel standing guard at the city's gates since it's construction began in 1672, making it the oldest masonry fort - and the only 17th century fort in existence - in the United States.

This is August 2014 video of the multiple agencies who responded in August 2014 to a house fire on Winifred Lane in Columbus where a mother and her infant child were found dead. Rosella “Mandy” Mitchell,32, and her 6-month-old son Dylan Conner were found dead at the scene. Brandon Conner, who was Mitchell’s boyfriend and Dylan’s father, has been charged in their deaths. Conner’s indictment alleges that he stabbed Mitchell in the throat and torso with a knife, and that he also killed the infant, though the child’s fatal injuries are not specified. Conner faces two counts of malice murder, two of felony murder, and one each of aggravated battery, using a knife to commit a crime and first-degree arson. His malice murder charges allege he deliberately killed his girlfriend and child, and his felony murder counts accuse him of killing the mother and infant while committing the felony offense of aggravated assault. District Attorney Julia Slater intends to pursue the death penalty in this case.
