HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii is preparing for high winds, heavy rain and ocean swells as a Category 4 hurricane gets closer. Hurricane Ignacio is expected to pass northeast of the Big Island tomorrow and north of Maui on Tuesday. Both islands are under a tropical storm watch. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center says stormy weather could hit the Big Island tonight and Maui tomorrow.

ATLANTA (AP) — The American flag is flying at half-staff at Turner Field in Atlanta, a day after a fan was killed in a fall from the upper deck. The Atlanta Braves say Gregory Murrey was a longtime season-ticket holder and "an incredibly passionate Braves fan," and the team is "deeply saddened" by his death. No one else was hurt yesterday when Murrey fell into the lower-level stands during a game between the Braves and the New York Yankees.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says it would be a mistake to assume he wouldn't be willing to use military force, if that's what circumstances require. The Vermont senator tells ABC's "This Week" that there is "no question" that there are times when the use of force is necessary. But he says it should be a last resort.

WASHINGTON (AP) — There's been lots of talk about securing the U.S. border with Mexico, but Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says there's also reason for concern about the border to the north. The Republican presidential candidate says building a wall along the Canadian border with Canada is a legitimate idea that merits further review. His comment came in an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press."

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's sanitation department has its very own anthropologist-in-residence. New York University professor Robin Nagle is a garbage guru who studies the refuse along the curbs. Nagle spent almost a year getting her hands dirty alongside sanitation workers. She calls them New York's "most important uniformed force." She says the city's garbage reflects "a throwaway culture that's going too fast."
