But now that she's allowed an almost 30-kilogram mobility scooter nicknamed "Sunny" to change her life for the better, she wants people to know she doesn't need anyone to feel sorry for her.

TORONTO — Sarah Del Seronde is a big believer in interrogating the word "legacy," particularly as it relates to her late husband, the filmmaker Jeff Barnaby. Seronde, who is also a filmmaker, said it feels strange to switch from being Barnaby's partner to talking about the impact of his work now that he's gone. “His work is still continuing, so I guess the word legacy feels finite," she said. Before his death in October, the 46-year-old had an outsized influence on Indigenous storytelling — and

WASHINGTON (AP) — On a winter's day in 1984, a briefcase stuffed with classified government documents showed up in a building in Pittsburgh, borne by someone who most certainly wasn't supposed to have them. That someone was 13-year-old Kristin Preble. She took the papers to school as a show-and-tell project for her eighth grade class. Her dad had found them in his Cleveland hotel room several years earlier and taken them home as a souvenir. As a different sort of show and tell unfolds in Washing
