    - The Korean War began when North Korea invaded South Korea.
    The United Nations, with the United States as the principal force, came to the aid of South Korea. China, with assistance from the Soviet Union, came to the aid of North Korea. The war arose from the division of Korea at the end of World War II and from the global tensions of the Cold War that developed immediately afterwards.

    - Watauga Humane Society is introducing a new summer reading program called Paws for Reading beginning June 14 and running mornings from 11:00-12:30 Tuesday through Friday for eight weeks, ending on August 5. Designed for children in grades 2-8, the program’s purpose is to promote children’s reading skills and interests while also providing a means for socializing and promoting human interaction with cats and kittens at the Adoption Center.
    Reading for Paws is based on research conducted at Tufts University that established that pets can be considered a form of human support; that human/animal interactions can make the learning process more comfortable and enjoyable for children; that autistic children, in particular, who have contact with animals have demonstrated increased use of language and have improved social interactions when with animals. Children involved in the program show better sustained focus and maintain a higher sense of awareness as well as improved attitudes toward school; finally, animals offer a non-evaluative presence that can provide support and comfort to individuals without judging them.

    -Online registration must occur at least one day in advance; the program can accommodate only 14 children a day

    -Reading/animal interaction times will be no more than 30 minutes per day per child

    -Children must sign in at the confirmed time and be accompanied by an adult

    -Children may bring their own books to read or select one at the Center

    -Animals will be provided by Center staff

    -Reading/animal interactions will take place only in space identified by staff

    -Adults must be with their children throughout the confirmed time

    -The child and adult must sign out at the completion of a confirmed time

  • - The 2016 Republican National Convention will convene in Cleveland, Ohio on July 18-21, 2016. The RNC chose a 2016 convention date much earlier than in recent elections, allowing the Republican nominee to draw upon campaign cash designated to be spent only in the general election.

    Ohio has been a battleground swing-state throughout United States campaigning history. The last candidate to win the presidential election without Ohio was Democrat John F. Kennedy in 1960. The last Republican presidential candidate to win the election without Ohio was Abraham Lincoln, 100 years earlier, in 1860. Cleveland last hosted the Republican National Convention in 1936.

    The main 2016 Republican National Convention venue will be the Quicken Loans Arena. This main convention center is located in downtown Cleveland, and referred to locally as "The Q". The multipurpose arena seats 20,500, and includes 2,000 club seats and 88 luxury suites. It is home to three professional sports teams and hosts numerous entertainment events. Other supporting venues within walking distance of 2016 RNC main venue include the Cleveland Convention Center and the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

    Other cities that were considered to host the 2016 Republican National Convention included Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated on April 2, 2014. Cincinnati and Las Vegas withdrew on May 22, 2014. On June 25, 2014, the Republican National Committee announced that the cities of Cleveland and Dallas would continue to the final round of consideration to host the 2016 Convention. The recommendation to select 'Cleveland 2016' was made following a final review by the Republicans' site selection committee on July 8, 2014.
