The investigation into the South Hill murder of Doug Carlile expands to a North Dakota Indian tribe. (SR)

The Idaho Sheriffs’ Association supports letting Idahoans carry concealed firearms on college campuses. (KREM)

Crimea raises the possibility of actually joining Russia. (Washington Post)

How jerk Spider-Man stood up a cancer survivor. (Page Six)
