>>>Woman With Gun Arrested in Front of White House
LANHAM, Md. —*** A woman armed with a gun was reportedly arrested in front of the White House Thursday night....
The woman was spotted by Secret Service agents around 8:30 p.m. walking along the north fence on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Secret Service special agents spotted a gun in a holster around the woman’s waist and then arrested the woman.
Officials say the woman was carrying a 9mm handgun in the holster. She is identified as 23-year-old April Lenhart of Michigan.
She is reportedly undergoing further questioning, but is said to be uncooperative.
President Obama was in the White House at the time of the arrest. He had finished his Address to the Nation from the East Room 15 minutes earlier.
This comes a day after a man was arrested near the White House after approaching a checkpoint claiming Obama had invited him. Agents later found a .30-30 rifle, ammunition and a knife in his car.
>>>President's Executive Order Spares Millions of Illegals
(The White House) -- ****Under expansive executive actions unveiled by President Obama last night nearly 5 million people in the U.S. illegally will be spared from deportation.....
The main beneficiaries are immigrants who have been in the U.S. illegally for more than five years but whose children are citizens or lawful permanent residents. After passing background checks and paying fees, those individuals can now be granted relief from deportation for three years and get work permits.
Today the president travels to a high school in Las Vegas, Nevada to meet with students and sign his executive actions.
>>>Cruel Winter Weather Continues to Pound Northern US
***Brutal winter weather continues to pound northern parts of the U.S., from lightning and thunder to feet of snow piling up in areas like Michigan all the way to western New York.....
Ten people have died in Buffalo, New York, mainly from heart attacks and exposure.
Snow has fallen at 2 to 4 inches per hour, piling up to around 8 feet in some areas. Now some people can't get into their homes.
But others must get out, with the heavy snow causing ceilings to cave in.
With the roof of a nursing home in jeopardy, residents had to be evacuated and carried to safety.
People are using shovels and cranes to clear their rooftops before the damage is done.
When the snow does stop and temperatures warm up, melting snow could cause more problems, putting even more weight on rooftops.
There's also the potential for flooding.
People are bing asked to stay off the roads in N. Y. state.

Today's Highlight in History:
On Nov. 21, 1864, a letter was signed by President Abraham Lincoln expressing condolences to Lydia Bixby, a widow in Boston whose five sons supposedly died while fighting in the Civil War. (As it turned out, only two of Mrs. Bixby's sons had been killed in battle; also, historians are not certain that Lincoln actually wrote the letter.
>>>House Hearing Calls Out Military’s War on Faith
WASHINGTON -- ****Some say the U.S. military is now so hostile to religion, many believers in the ranks are afraid of mentioning their faith.....
Because of past cases, Congress has specifically ordered the military to stop suppressing religious liberty. But there have been enough new cases in recent months that the House held a new hearing on the subject this Wednesday.
Of those testifying at the Subcommittee for Military Personnel hearing, most believe the military is becoming more hostile to troops' religious liberty.
That belief led some of those panelists to point out the irony that it's the troops guarding Americans' liberty who may be most in danger of losing their own.
