 NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Thousands of spectators turned out for the annual Newtown Labor Day Parade in Connecticut, capping months of organizing in the aftermath of a shooting rampage that killed 20 first-graders and six educators last December.

 

   Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy and local officials participated in the 52nd-annual Labor Day parade on Monday.

 

   WFSB-TV reports that the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue Co. and Sandy Hook Elementary School students received the loudest applause from spectators along the parade route.

 

   Organizers were wary about a parade so soon after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook.

 

   Labor Day Parade Committee head Beth Caldwell says she worked to balance respect for the tragedy with giving the community a celebration.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — For the first time in 12 years, the National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival has offered a meatless alternative.

Thousands of chicken wing lovers flocked to the poultry mecca of western New York on Saturday to experience the latest and greatest in wings — including hummus dip and breaded green beans flavored like the real thing.

Local chef Steven Binks tells The Buffalo News the trick is in getting the right mix of Frank's Original RedHot and gorgonzola cheese.

The two-day festival features more than 130 different styles of wings, live music and wing-eating contests.

Event founder Drew Cerza said 40 tons of wings will be served up by two dozen restaurants from across the country.

Among the eateries is Buffalo's Anchor Bar, considered the birthplace of Buffalo-style chicken wings.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A military hearing for three former Navy football players accused of sexual assault is set to resume after the alleged victim was given a day to rest.

Testimony was scheduled to continue Sunday morning at the Washington Navy Yard.

The hearing is being held to determine whether the three U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen will be court-martialed on the charges. It was postponed Saturday because the alleged victim said she was too fatigued to testify after a week of difficult cross-examination.

The woman, who is now a senior at the academy, allegedly was sexually assaulted at an April 2012 party after a night of heavy drinking. She says she doesn't remember having sex with the men.
