    COLUMBINE-20 YEARS LATER-LOOKING BACK _ Would one of them have discovered a cure for cancer? Become an NBA star? Traveled the world and learned from its people? Raised a family, been part of a community, paid a mortgage, shopped for groceries on the weekend, coached a youth sports team? So often now, Americans find themselves confronting days in which shots are fired, parents’ children fall and futures are stolen. Covering the shootings at Columbine High School 20 years ago, I witnessed that feeling up close for the first time.

    UKRAINE-CANDIDATES’S HOME _ Residents of this grim industrial city in eastern Ukraine say they are exhausted by a daily battle for survival amid low wages and soaring bills.

They will make their choice on Sunday, when Ukraine votes in a decisive runoff election on whether to keep unpopular President Petro Poroshenko, or go with Volodymyr Zelenskiy, an actor who stars in a TV series about a teacher who is accidentally thrust into the nation's top office.

Now would-be migrants create chat groups and organize themselves to leave in caravans. By Maria Verza and Marcos Aleman. SENT: 1,060 words, photos.

    MARIJUANA HOLIDAY-ADVERTISING _ Potheads have for decades celebrated their love of marijuana on April 20, but the once counter-culture celebration that was all about getting stoned now is so mainstream Corporate America is starting to embrace it. No, Hallmark doesn't yet have a card to mark "420." But many other businesses inside and outside the multibillion-dollar cannabis industry are using April 20, or 4/20, to roll out marketing and social media messaging aimed at connecting with consumers driving the booming market. SENT: 900 words, photos.
