A Russian diplomat says Moscow has suspended sharing information about its nuclear forces with the United States, including notifications about missile tests. A deputy foreign minister told Russian news agencies that Moscow had halted all information exchanges with Washington. Russian had previously suspended participation in the last remaining nuclear arms pact with the U.S. It wasn’t immediately clear, however, whether the diplomat's statement indicated Moscow’s intention to terminate all warnings about missile tests or just those envisioned by the New START treaty. If Russia terminates such warnings about missile tests, it would be another attempt to discourage Western support for Ukraine.
Georgia lawmakers face multiple key decisions on the final scheduled day of their 2023 session. Most importantly, the General Assembly must still pass a budget. But senators and representatives are also trying to reach agreement on plans to improve mental health care. Additional debates could loom on legalizing sports betting, giving vouchers to children attending poorly-performing public schools, and raising the legal weight limit for some trucks on state roads. Some key proposals have already passed, including a bill that would set up a commission to discipline and remove elected prosecutors and bills that seek to improve how reading is taught in Georgia’s public schools.
Last August, Daysia Holiday decided to try one more time to join the Army. She’d taken the academic test and failed three times. So, when she was offered a slot in a new Army prep course to improve her scores and qualify for basic training, she jumped at it. She is now a graduate of Army basic training and just finished her advanced instruction at Fort Lee, Virginia. She's one of about 5,400 soldiers who have graduated from the Army course, which gives lower-performing recruits a chance to meet military standards. The Army is using the course to fill the ranks after falling short of its recruitment goals last year.

Six people were killed at the small, private Christian school on Monday after a shooter opened fire inside the 200-student school. Police say the shooting took place over about 14 minutes. The shooter was also killed. Police say that shooter Audrey Hale was a former student but that it was unclear whether Hale had any current affiliation with the school or was related to anyone there at the time of the shooting.
Georgia lawmakers are telling cities and counties that they must enforce existing bans on public camping or sleeping by homeless people. They're also saying local governments and hospitals can’t dump homeless people in other counties without permission. The House voted 99-76 to pass Senate Bill 62 on Monday. The Senate later approved the House version, sending it to Gov. Brian Kemp for his signature or veto. The measure passed over vociferous Democratic opposition. They accuse Republicans of trying to criminalize homelessness and impose unworkable requirements on local governments.
Friends and neighbors say retirees Lonnie and Melissa Pierce lived a quiet life in the Mississippi Delta before a powerful tornado dropped a semi-truck onto their home like a bomb. The husband and wife from Rolling Fork were among at least 21 people in Mississippi and one in Alabama killed by devastating storms that spawned tornadoes across the Deep South since Friday. More than half of those killed lived in Mississippi's Sharkey County, where Coroner Angelia Eason says it felt like “losing 13 family members.” Neighbors said the Pierces were “about the best” people they knew. Lonnie Pierce was a retired welder, and Melissa Pierce volunteered for a Christian charity.
