First Drip (2/26/14): Book banning continues, Californians strike gold, life after Guantanamo, more



The book-banning saga in North Carolina continues. The ACLU, community leaders and the state's poet laureate will gather before a Wautuga County Board of Education meeting, where officials will hear the last "appeal seeking to remove Isabel Allende's The House of the Spirits and other literature from the county high school curriculum," according to the ACLU.

North Carolina is prohibiting Duke Energy from continuing to operate the coal-ash pond in the center of a spill that tainted Danville, Va.'s, drinking water.

It's a story that seemingly belongs in another era: A California couple unearthed gold worth a fortune.
