By Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - An online campaign has raised nearly $300,000 for Cassidy Stay, the teenage survivor of a shooting attack in suburban Houston last week in which her parents and four siblings were killed. The "Stay Family Tragedy - Cassidy Stay Fund" campaign on GoFundMe.com is meant to help with funeral, medical and other expenses. Police said Ronald Lee Haskell, 33, entered the Stay house posing as a delivery man and searching for his former wife, the sister of Cassidy's mother. She was released from a hospital on Friday and addressed a memorial on Saturday, wiping away tears but smiling as she spoke of her parents, Stephen Stay, 39, and Katie, 33, and her two brothers and two sisters, aged 4 to 14.

By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - Talks to avert a Long Island Rail Road strike broke down on Monday and the unions representing workers at the country's largest commuter railroad said they were proceeding with plans to strike on Sunday. "No further negotiations are scheduled," union negotiator Anthony Simon said in a statement after announcing that talks with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority had collapsed. A "big gulf" between management and the unions representing 5,400 workers scuttled the talks, MTA Chairman Thomas Prendergast told a news conference. They've done the taking," Prendergast said, adding management adjusted its offer three times and could not move further without draining money for capital improvements and triggering fare hikes.
