SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The search continues off the southern coast of South Korea for any survivors after a fishing boat capsized. Ten people died and an undetermined number of others are missing. More than 40 coast guard, navy and civilian ships are on the lookout for survivors. The boat had left Chuja Island on Saturday evening to return to a southwestern town on the mainland, before losing communication.

GRAYSON, Ky. (AP) — About 300 people stood outside a Kentucky jail house Saturday, chanting, "Thank you, Kim; thank you, Kim," and prayed that the defiant county clerk locked inside could hear them. Rowan (ROW'-uhn) County Clerk Kim Davis has been behind bars since Thursday over her refusal to heed a judge's order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says her family paid a State Department employee to maintain the private email server she'd used while secretary of state and compensated him "for a period of time" for his technical skills. That employee, Bryan Pagliano, has told a House committee he would invoke his constitutional right against self-incrimination if called to testify. Clinton told reporters she did not think the revelation about the payment to Pagliano would hurt her campaign. And she encouraged "anyone who is asked to cooperate" with the committee to do so.

SEATTLE (AP) — The man known as the Green River killer for murdering 49 people over 20 years was transferred to a Colorado prison last May so he could be brought out of isolation, according to newly released documents. Since his conviction in 2004, 66-year-old Gary Ridgway had lived in virtual isolation at the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla, where he was serving a life sentence without parole. Prison documents obtained by The Seattle Times show Ridgway was easily recognizable and a target of other inmates.

UNDATED (AP) — Severe weather across much of the South and Midwest meant a chaotic first weekend for college football. Fans danced in the rain, stormed the field, or headed for the exits during weather delays. Georgia and Louisiana-Monroe's game was called with almost 10 minutes left on the clock because of lightning. Ninth-ranked Georgia won, 51-14.
