U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. leaves clinic, returns home

Rep. Jackson is home from clinic

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has returned to his home in Washington after treatment for depression at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Jackson's chief of staff said Friday. "Let's hope he returns to work on Monday," Rick Bryant said. Jackson went on a secretive medical leave in June, when family members said he collapsed at home. His office said in August that he was being treated at Mayo for depression, after a transfer from the Sierra Tucson Treatment Center in Arizona.

Prince begins combat tour

Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, began a four-month combat tour Friday in Afghanistan as a gunner on an Apache attack helicopter after a vacation that included strip billiards in a Las Vegas hotel. It is the second tour in Afghanistan for Harry, 27, who will start flying missions within 10 days in the country's restive Helmand province, the British military said. In 2007-08, he served in Helmand as an air traffic controller. He is known as Capt. Harry Wales in the military.

Name change for pond is approved

A federal board has approved a New Hampshire town's request to change the name of a fishing spot called Jew Pond since the 1920s. The U.S. Board of Geographic Names approved the decision by Mont Vernon to rename it Carleton Pond, after one of the town's founding families. Officials say the pond originally was named Spring Pond because the owners of a hotel created it by digging up a spring to irrigate a golf course. It's believed the spot became Jew Pond when Jewish businessmen bought the hotel.
