UPDATED: Debris confirms crash of Air France jet in Atlantic

FERNANDO DE NORONHA, Brazil (AP) -- An airplane seat, a fuel slick and pieces of white debris scattered over three miles of open ocean marked the site in the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday where Air France Flight 447 plunged to its doom, Brazil's defense minister said.

I have just learned that the recreation board of the Friendly Valley Homeowners' Association has opted to remove the steps that I personally have always used to walk down to our lawn bowling area. I have heard the rumor that these steps have been "deemed unsafe" and that the recreation Board of Directors is looking for bids to remove the steps with no plans to replace them.

David Hegg: Toward ethical friendship

Someone has rightly said that a true friend is one who walks in when everyone else is walking out. In most areas of life, tragedy and trial bring truth to the surface.

When it comes to friendships, hard times bring out the reality of the relationship.
