Samir Cook fills up his vehicle at a city-run station on Saturday, July 19, 2014, in Somerset, Ky. The station on the outskirts of Somerset opened to the public on Saturday, selling regular unleaded gas for $3.36 a gallon.

The citys mayor says he hopes the no-frills station will lower gas prices around town.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Beyond the boom of Israeli airstrikes and the stream of rockets fired from Gaza, Israel and Hamas are also battling to control the message emanating from this latest Israeli-Palestinian conflagration.

Using videos, Twitter, text messages, leaflets and phone calls, both sides have attempted to direct the tone of the fighting — for their own public, their opponent's population and for a global audience. Propaganda and psychological warfare are nothing new in battle, but technology and social media have exponentially increased the ability of each side to penetrate their intended audiences.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Tuition and fees are going up at New Jersey's flagship university for the upcoming school year.

The Rutgers University Board of Governors voted Wednesday to raise tuition by about 2 percent for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Students and several state officials had appealed to the board to consider a tuition freeze on the heels of a 3.3 percent hike last year.

In-state students currently pay more than $13,000 in tuition and fees at Rutgers, and the price is more than $25,000 for those who live on campus.

Spurs pick UCLA F Anderson in NBA draft
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 01:36

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — UCLA forward Kyle Anderson was regarded as one of the most talented passers and more unselfish players in the NBA draft this season.

Joining the league's most unselfish and best passing team almost seems too good to be true for the 20-year-old Anderson, who was picked by the Spurs with the 30th selection of the NBA draft Thursday night.

"My first reaction is wow," Anderson said. "Watching the Spurs since last year's playoffs, I could really tell how well they share the ball.

UH officials told to plan for flat tuition
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 01:36

HONOLULU (AP) — University of Hawaii administrators will make two years of operating-budget plans without the promise of an increase in tuition.

UH regents had previously approved 7 percent annual increases as part of a five-year tuition schedule to raise tuition by more than 30 percent. However, regents want to review tuition increases as they balance increasing costs and less state support with a commitment to affordability and accessibility, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://bit.ly/1kIWYbd) reported.

The outcome could mean scaled-back increases or a tuition freeze.

Tim Duncan coming back for Spurs in 2014-15
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 01:35

Tim Duncan could have easily gone out on top, with his fifth NBA championship trophy under his arm and his health intact just a few months after his 38th birthday.

There's just no way. Duncan is having too much fun with his San Antonio Spurs coaches and teammates, and he's playing too well to call it quits now.

Duncan has decided to exercise the option on his contract for 2014-15 and will return next season, the team announced Monday.
