As the fall season begins for 1,500 elementary and middle school youth, DC SCORES is highlighting former program participants who are enrolling in college. These young adults found many of their interests through their time in our Arts/Athletics/Academics model and have used the lessons learned through their teams to earn scholarships to continue their education.

This week we focus on Claudia Merlos, a graduate of Wilson High School who is attending Trinity Washington University in the District and playing for the women's soccer team.

WUSA9 to try drone camera

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Phantom is one of a handful of radio controlled rotor aircraft designed to act as miniature flying camera platforms.

WUSA has experimented, with limited success, other popular models. One model we tried flew well as long as there was no wind-but the method for downloading the video was not simple enough for our workflow-which always requires speed, reliability and ease of use.

The Phantom is a quad motor, rotor type aircraft that has a GoPro camera slung underneath for shooting video and still pictures. The GoPro is usually tough and reliable so it makes a nice choice for shooting aerial footage this way.

Rieder: 'Washington Post' sale a shocker

(USA TODAY) -- It is a stunning separation.

For years, The Washington Post and the Graham family have been as deeply intertwined as it is possible for a news outlet and its owners to be.

In fact, the storied newspaper almost seemed like part of the Graham family. Generation after generation served as its steward. The Grahams flat-out loved that paper.

And so the news late Monday afternoon that the paper was being sold to Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos came as a shock. It must have been a deeply painful decision for Post Co. CEO Donald Graham.

But despite its legendary history, its courageous and inspirational role in publishing the Pentagon Papers and exposing Watergate secrets, its continuing if diminished commitment to quality journalism, the paper is hardly immune to the profoundly disruptive impact of the digital era.
