Suspicious powder in faculty letter
FLORENCE | A threatening letter with a suspicious white powder was sent to a faculty member at the University of North Alabama, prompting authorities to shut down a building on the campus, officials said.
The school said in a statement that a threatening letter addressed to a faculty member was received Thursday afternoon on the fifth floor of Stevens Hall. Spokesman Josh Woods said a white powder was inside the letter.
Three university staff members were decontaminated, and police and a Colbert County hazardous materials team were working to identify the material.
All classes in the building were canceled for the rest of the day.
4 presidents unite for salute to service
LOS ANGELES | Four former U.S. presidents are joining forces for a TV special saluting public service and volunteerism.
NBC said Thursday that George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush will gather for the hourlong “All Together Now: A Celebration of Service,” which will air March 28.
The gala, to be held at the Kennedy Center the week before the special airs, also will spotlight the legacy of George H.W. Bush.
Mr. Clinton, who has worked with Mr. Bush to raise money for tsunami and hurricane victims, is the honorary co-chairman of the event, which will include music and celebrities.
President Obama, scheduled to be abroad when the gala is held, will narrate a short film on the history and value of service in the country, NBC said.
