PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — Seventy-five years after Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the leaders of Japan and the United States have made a historic joint visit today to the memorial honoring those who died there. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and President Barack Obama peered down into the water at the rusting wreckage of the USS Arizona, where more than 1,000 U.S. war dead remain entombed in the submerged ship. In a show of respect, Obama and Abe dropped purple petals into the water and stood in silence. Both spoke of the horrors of war and the alliance that has produced peace and cooperation.

Steiner's film, "Saving Barbara Sizemore," documented the successful fight to keep Barbara A. Sizemore Academy in Chicago open after it was slated to be closed.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns' first victory of the season is also a win for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. Some fans had planned to hold what was being billed as a "Perfect Season Parade" to make fun of the team. More than $10,000 had been donated to a fund to help pay for expenses such as security and bathroom facilities for the parade. But because the Browns beat the San Diego Charges on Saturday for their first win of the season, the money will now be donated to the food bank.
