The U.S. Department of Education said it has awarded its first funding to a Florida school district that had state funds withheld because it mandated that students wear masks, going against the governor's ban on such mandates.

Jackie Johnson, director of communications for the school district in Gainesville, said on Friday the state had withheld funding in August that was equivalent to the salaries of the four school board members who voted to mandate masks and other COVID safety protocols.
The Dow and S&P 500 ended a choppy session Friday with minor gains, extending their winning streak to a third day. Gains in financial and tech shares offset a downbeat sales forecast from Nike. The Dow and S&P inched up roughly a tenth of a percent, but the Nasdaq closed flat. Despite a steep sell-off on Monday sparked by fears of a default by developer China Evergrande, the markets recovered to eke out small gains for the week. Evergrande missed its key interest payment Thursday, but American investors took the news in stride Friday, which surprised TD Ameritrade Chief Market Strategist JJ Kinahan. “It really is amazing. Again, going back to what I said earlier, it shows the power of the Fed at everything. That being said, I think as an investor, you can't look at what went on with China Evergrande and just say, ‘Oh Monday. It's over. Time to move on.’” Nike was the biggest drag on the Dow and S&P. The sportswear maker’s shares dropped more than 6%. Nike warned of delays during the holiday shopping season, blaming a supply chain crunch. Investors also took down shares of athletic shoe retailer Foot Locker, which fell 7%. China’s central bank banned the trading and mining of cryptocurrencies. That yanked down the price of bitcoin and other cryptos, as well as digital currency-related companies such as Coinbase Global, MicroStrategy, and Riot Blockchain.

An injured crow was rescued after somehow getting its head caught in a wooden fence in Metairie, Louisiana, on September 15.This video was taken by conservationist PJ Hahn, who told Storyful that he rushed to the rescue after receiving a call from a friend about the situation.Hahn wrote in a comment that the blood on the fence was from the crow: “It apparently was there for a few hours and it beat its wings against the fence trying to free itself.”Hahn told Storyful he grabbed the crow’s body and gently pulled it out of the fence. He then wrapped the anxious and bleeding bird in a towel after realizing one wing was too injured for flight. From there, he transported the crow in a cardboard box to a local veterinarian who specialized in birds.Upon examination of the bird’s injured wing, the veterinarian kept it for rehabilitation for a week before releasing it back into the wild a week later.Among the admiring comments his posts elicited, someone wrote, “Make friends with a crow and you have a friend for life.” Credit: PJ Hahn via Storyful
