COAL ASH-SOUTH CAROLINA GREENVILLE - Duke Energy said Thursday it's planning to move all of its coal ash from pits at a South Carolina plant that environmentalists say threatens the Saluda River.

CHILD ABUSE BUTTE, Mont. - At least 786 children died of abuse or neglect in the U.S. in a six-year span in plain view of child protection authorities - many of them beaten, starved or left alone to drown while agencies had good reason to know they were in danger, The Associated Press has found. To determine that number, the AP canvassed the 50 states, the District of Columbia and all branches of the military - circumventing a system that does a terrible job of accounting for child deaths. Many states struggled to provide numbers. Secrecy often prevailed. By Holbrook Mohr And Garance Burke.
