A student at a military college who sued top Pentagon officials after he was deemed unfit for service because he tested positive for HIV has settled his lawsuit and plans to pursue his dream of becoming an Army officer. Eddie Diaz, a student at Norwich University in Vermont, said Tuesday he just wants an opportunity to serve his country. Diaz said in the lawsuit filed in Vermont in May that after he tested positive he was dropped from the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps and the Vermont Army National Guard despite being healthy and asymptomatic. Messages seeking comment were left with the Pentagon and the Vermont National Guard.

This summer’s drought is expected to cause a patchy array of fall color in the leaf-peeping haven of New England. At the other end of the country in drought-stricken southern states the conditions could mute and shorten the autumn colors. In New England the season typically peaks in late September or October.

A professor of plant ecology at Boston University says New England will still have brilliant colors because it has so many different kinds of trees growing on ridges, slopes and wetlands.
