The Obama administration is piloting programs in Boston, Los Angeles and Minneapolis focused on tackling global terrorism on a local scale.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Orange County appeals court ruled Monday that San Juan Capistrano's tiered water-rates are unconstitutional, potentially dealing a blow to agencies statewide that have used the pricing structure to encourage people to save water.
