Petline 9: Buxton

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Lab Rescue brought Buxton on Petline 9 on Thursday.

Buxton is a 7-year-old black labrador retriever. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative.

Buxton is good with cats and other dogs and he must go to a home with another dog since he is used to living with one. He is approved for kids aged 10 and up.

Buxton is house trained and no longer needs to be crated. He knows the commands sit, stay and come.

Buxton loves to retrieve and would do best in a home with a fenced yard where he can play fetch to his heart's content.

Sandy Spring Banks Offering Relief to Furloughed Workers

OLNEY, Md. (WUSA9)--  The Sandy Spring Bank will now offer support to all furloughed government employees,  including men and women in the military, they announced on Friday.

Dan Schrider, CEO of Sandy Spring Bank says that a considerable amount of the bank's clients are being impacted by the government shutdown because of their close proximity to Washington.  

"We understand the gravity of this situation and it is our goal to help all citizens, both existing clients and community members through this process. The furlough, no matter the length, could be felt by these government employees for some time to come and we want to ensure that our community knows we are here to support them," said Schrider.

Because this furlough has the ability to cause financial struggle, the bank is offering a series of options that will include:

WUSA9 to try drone camera

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Phantom is one of a handful of radio controlled rotor aircraft designed to act as miniature flying camera platforms.

WUSA has experimented, with limited success, other popular models. One model we tried flew well as long as there was no wind-but the method for downloading the video was not simple enough for our workflow-which always requires speed, reliability and ease of use.

The Phantom is a quad motor, rotor type aircraft that has a GoPro camera slung underneath for shooting video and still pictures. The GoPro is usually tough and reliable so it makes a nice choice for shooting aerial footage this way.

Rieder: 'Washington Post' sale a shocker

(USA TODAY) -- It is a stunning separation.

For years, The Washington Post and the Graham family have been as deeply intertwined as it is possible for a news outlet and its owners to be.

In fact, the storied newspaper almost seemed like part of the Graham family. Generation after generation served as its steward. The Grahams flat-out loved that paper.

And so the news late Monday afternoon that the paper was being sold to Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos came as a shock. It must have been a deeply painful decision for Post Co. CEO Donald Graham.

But despite its legendary history, its courageous and inspirational role in publishing the Pentagon Papers and exposing Watergate secrets, its continuing if diminished commitment to quality journalism, the paper is hardly immune to the profoundly disruptive impact of the digital era.
