::: A Plum High School teacher, charged with institutional sex assault and intimidation of a female student, was arrested again Monday and charged for a second time with contacting the teenager and intimidating her. And he used a school-issued laptop to do it, police said.
::: An American Airlines senior manager who was part of the company’s initial response on 9/11 was arrested in an undercover sting operation, accused of trying to meet a woman and her 10-year-old daughter for sex, agents with the state Attorney General’s Office said. Ray Howland, 55, of Arlington, Texas, remained in the Allegheny County Jail, unable to post $150,000 bail. Investigators charged him Friday with multiple sex crimes, including attempted rape of a child.

June 21, 2015: My PapaBear turned 80 (he spent most of his life as a bachelor, living the dream), and celebrated Father's Day by meeting his first grandbaby, Thaddeus Jay Lovell, at my sister Jill's new house in Cave Creek, Arizona. I drew the moment and sent it as a postcard to sis ... Nothing Else Matters today, except episode two of "True Detective: 2.0" this evening.

How spectacular is this photo taken in Iowa that I ran on Page A3? The Northern Lights ~ the aurora borealis ~ were visible high in the sky as far south as New York City, Chicago, and Portland, Oregon, and might appear as a dull glow on the horizon in places like Oklahoma City and Charlotte, North Carolina. It's even possible to see them tonight in Pennsylvania. I really hope I do. ***
