LAS VEGAS — A federal judge on Monday refused to grant a request by environmentalists to throw out a settlement agreement between the federal government and local officials in Elko County that would legitimize the existence of a controversial road in northern Nevada.

CDC to baby boomers: Get tested for hepatitis C
ATLANTA (AP) — All baby boomers should get a one-time blood test to learn if they have the liver-destroying hepatitis C virus, U.S. health officials said Thursday.

Biden vs Ryan: No. 2s key in White House campaign
DENVER — Paul Ryan likes exercise, budget charts and the Green Bay Packers. Joe Biden likes train rides, foreign policy and talking — a lot. In some ways, these presidential ticket No. 2s could not be more different. They are separated in age by nearly three decades, were born to families in different regions of the country and have views on opposite ends of the political spectrum.
