NJ Governor Seeks Full Reimbursement for Storm Costs
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wants full federal reimbursement for some superstorm-related costs.
Christie sent a letter to the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Monday requesting reimbursement of state and local government costs for debris removal and emergency protective measures for the 90 days after Superstorm Sandy hit the state at the end of October.
The Republican governor cites the financial burden confronting the state and local communities and says debris removal might not be able to continue if governments aren't fully reimbursed.
The federal government typically doesn't reimburse for the total cost of such services. But the Christie administration says there's precedent for the request: Other states have received the aid for limited periods after similar natural disasters.
The superstorm killed more than 100 people in 10 states but hit New York and New Jersey the hardest

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.
