$1.2M federal grant to help fund Pa. 9/11 memorial
SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded the National Park Service $1.2 million to finish work on an access road at the 9/11 Flight 93 Memorial in southwestern Pennsylvania.
The memorial in Shanksville marks the grounds where a hijacked United Airlines jet crashed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Investigators determined the hijackers likely planned to crash the plane in Washington, D.C., but were thwarted when the 40 passengers and crew fought back and the plane crashed as a result.
Each year, about 400,000 visitors to the memorial use the road.
A private group, the Flight 93 National Memorial Campaign, has said it still needs to raise about $5 million more to complete the entire memorial, which includes a learning center and a tower with 40 wind chimes.

Friends remember `The Wall' after Okla. tornado
May 24, 2013 16:47 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Friends and teammates of Kyle Davis attended the boy's funeral wearing soccer jerseys bearing the number "16."
A funeral was held Friday for the 8-year-old, known by his soccer teammates "The Wall." His teammates wore their own jerseys, and adults and others in the crowd wore shirts reading "K. Davis 16."
Soccer coach Landon House said Kyle inspired him to remain in coaching, telling him during an especially cold practice last fall that he really loved the game. House said the child had a positive attitude toward life, soccer and his teammates.
Kyle was among seven children killed when the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore collapsed when hit by an EF5 tornado Monday.
Monday's storm killed 24 people, including 10 children. Another twister Sunday killed two men at Shawnee.
