A high school student who grabbed a National Rifle Assn. T-shirt in her hurry to find something to wear to school was confronted by campus officials who forced the student to remove her shirt or face disciplinary action , the girl's parents said. Haley Bullwinkle complied with the demand, took off the white T-shirt in the health office and put on a school shirt that officials at Canyon High in Anaheim gave her, but came home confused and frightened, said the girl's father, who said he received the shirt when he joined the NRA. "I felt like they were violating my rights, my freedom of speech," the sophomore said.

LEFTHAND CANYON, Colo. - By late summer, Left Hand Creek is usually a gentle stream that gurgles through this tranquil, tree-shaded neighborhood of spacious lots. It was anything but that last week when rain-swollen waters enveloped houses, turned roads into riverbeds and sent cars tumbling downstream. Hui Lam fled before dawn Thursday after the creek came thundering across his driveway and down Streamcrest Drive. "It's completely surrounded by water," Lam, 41, said as he surveyed the area Tuesday, his house perched precariously against the current of brown, rushing water at the mouth of Lefthand Canyon.

While climate scientists fret over the melting of Greenland's ice sheet, a geographer using NASA data made it disappear, revealing a canyon as long as Arizona's Grand Canyon, buried a mile below the ice. At 460 miles long, the chasm bests the Grand Canyon, but its deepest stretches -- 2,600 feet -- are only about half that of the grand gorges carved by the Colorado River. The unnamed canyon runs from roughly the center of the island north to the Petermann Glacier fjord. Evidence indicates that the canyon predates the ice sheet by at least 1 million years, according to a study published this week in the journal Science.

MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. - Bree Jensen remembers the terror of that knock on the door in the early morning hours of June 24, 2012. A sheriff's deputy said the Waldo Canyon wildfire was close and getting closer. Everyone in town was ordered to flee. She can still see the sickly orange glow in the sky two days later as the fire topped a nearby ridge and roared into a Colorado Springs neighborhood, killing two people and destroying 347 homes. Nearly 19,000 acres of pretty mountain forest were eventually turned to charred rubble.
