Some 90 Marines landed on KC-130 transport planes and MV-22 Ospreys to support the American effort to contain the Ebola epidemic. The Ospreys, which can land vertically like helicopters, will transport U.S. troops and supplies as they build 17 Ebola treatment centers around Liberia.

Editorial: Pasco shelter for immigrant children should be allowed to expand
Editorial: University corporations can’t have it both ways
Letter of the Day: International Brachial Plexus Injury Awareness Week
Letters to the editor: Safety above all else
