New York's 9/11 museum to open to the public on May 21

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 00:32
Nearly 13 years after the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, a museum dedicated to the nearly 3,000 killed will open on May 21 where the World Trade Center once stood, officials said Monday. "September 11 is a day that profoundly changed New York and the nation," New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. "The Memorial Museum will bring New Yorkers together in the same spirit of unity we showed after this senseless act of terror." The opening of the National September 11 Memorial Museum has been repeatedly delayed by funding disputes, construction problems and damage from 2012's Superstorm Sandy. In the attacks, members of al Qaeda hijacked four airliners and crashed three of them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Indian tribe seeks pot business ban in part of Washington state

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 00:17
By Jonathan Kaminsky OLYMPIA, Washington (Reuters) - A Native American tribe, concerned about the impact of marijuana on its youth, is fighting to derail the rollout of a nascent recreational pot industry across a quarter of Washington state, where it still holds some traditional rights. The roughly 10,000-member Yakama Nation had already asserted sovereignty to keep pot outlawed on 1.2 million acres of reservation land it controls in central Washington's Yakima Valley. "Marijuana is the biggest problem for our people up to age 40," said George Colby, attorney for the Yakama Nation. "It's a bigger problem than alcohol." The move adds to a growing backlash against pot in Washington state that pits the liberal tech hub of Seattle against some more conservative areas.
