The study says education officials aren’t tracking at-risk students as carefully as before.

LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) – The Coast Guard says a 75-foot fishing boat that sank yesterday in the Columbia River west of Longview, Wash., has as much as 600 gallons of diesel on board and some of that fuel has spilled into the river. Petty Officer 1st Class David Mosley says an estimated 50 to 100 gallons of fuel has been released. Mosley says the owner of the wood-hulled trawler Granby reported the sinking and helped put out containment boom to minimize spill damage.

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) – The husband of a woman found beaten along a trail in Pendleton says she will have a lot of relearning to do once she’s out of an induced coma.

Investigators say a transient is a person of interest and DNA from the attack is linked to a killing last year.
