SANTA FE, Texas | The Latest: Incoming NRA president addresses school shooting

SANTA FE, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the school shooting in Texas (all times local):

The National Rifle Association’s incoming president is blaming the latest deadly school shooting on youngsters “steeped in a culture of violence.”

HELENA, Mont | ‘Jurassic Park’ dinosaur expert’s next big thing: holograms

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The Montana paleontologist who consulted with director Steven Spielberg on the “Jurassic Park” movies is developing a three-dimensional hologram exhibit that will showcase the latest theories on what dinosaurs looked like.
