School administrators this year are being pushed to get better at recognizing homeless students — those "hidden" in other people's homes or whose families are staying in places like campgrounds, motels and cars — and to keep them in school even if they're missing paperwork or move around.

Republican Gov. Paul LePage said Wednesday he intends to seek "spiritual guidance" in hopes of quieting a controversy he created when he left an obscene message on a Democratic lawmaker's voicemail and then said he wished he could challenge him to a duel and point a gun at him.

A woman who was kidnapped at gunpoint by her husband while he was under home confinement on charges he beat and abducted her two months earlier was found dead inside a barn, and he was hospitalized with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, state police said Wednesday.
A state lawmaker says police officers threw him to the ground and put him in handcuffs as he tried to de-escalate tensions after 10 people were arrested at the scene of a recent fatal police shooting on Milwaukee's north side.
The Associated Press has withdrawn a story about a suspect who fled while still handcuffed. The story included a name for the suspect provided by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, which the sheriff's office now says is incorrect.
