PENNSVILLE TOWNSHIP, N.J. - People who knew Paul Anthony Ciancia struggled to reconcile the quiet teenager who by some accounts was bullied in high school with the man who allegedly targeted Transportation Security Administration workers during a fatal shooting rampage at LAX. In this suburban Philadelphia neighborhood, people described him as shy and a little awkward but said they never saw signs of anger or violent tendencies. "He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot," said David Hamilton, who graduated with Ciancia from Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del., in 2008.

President Obama chose an Indiana judge with some bipartisan support for his first judicial nomination Tuesday, announcing he wanted to elevate U.S. District Judge David F. Hamilton to the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. White House aides described Hamilton as a careful judge who follows the law and also shows "empathy for real people with real problems." They said Obama was sending a signal with this pick that he would consult Senate Republicans about his judicial nominations.

Terry Eski had been itching to grow her own food for years, but living in a Chicago condominium, she lacked the space to garden. Until 2009, that is, when Eski, her husband and two children moved north to Prairie Crossing, a master-planned farm community in the suburb of Grayslake, Ill. There, she lives across the street from a 100-acre organic farm, has access to a community garden and spends Saturdays collecting fresh-laid eggs. FOR THE RECORD: Farm communities: In an article in the Nov. 29 Section A on new home developments built around organic farms, the first name of Daron Joffe, who has helped design farm developments, was incorrectly given as Devon.
