The Ultimate Shenandoah National Park Travel Guide

It might be easy to overlook this 200,000-acre slice of the southern Appalachians in Virginia. At first glance, Shenandoah National Park doesn’t have the obvious cachet of some other units in the park system. But if you know where to look, there is an abundance of adventure within its green ridges and pastoral valleys. The mountains that lie within the park boundaries rise dramatically from the valley floor, some gaining 3,000 feet of elevation. From a distance, they may appear deceptively mellow, but they’re filled with craggy granite peaks, waterfalls, and tight gorges, so hikes are often full of rock scrambles and river crossings. 

Given its proximity to major cities like Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, 90 minutes to two hours east, Shenandoah sees its fair share of crowds during the high seasons of summer and fall. Thanks to the convenience of the Skyline Drive, a 105-mile road that bisects the

National Book Awards Finalists Announced

Two novels with eerie echoes of world catastrophes, both set at summer houses, are among this year’s five fiction finalists for the National Book Award.

Lydia Millet’s “The Children’s Bible,” about multiple families whose kids have come to disdain their parents, has been read as an allegory about religious storytelling, planetary safekeeping and the climate crisis. Rumaan Alam’s “Leave the World Behind” follows a white Brooklyn couple and their children on a vacation to Long Island, where they become unsettled by an apparent apocalyptic event and the unexpected arrival of their rental home’s Black owners.

Millet is the only one of 25 finalists across five categories announced Tuesday who had previously been longlisted for a National Book Award (in 2016, for “Sweet Lamb of Heaven”). The other three fiction finalists this year are Deesha Philyaw, for “The Secret Lives of Church Ladies,” a story collection that follows the lives, religion

American, United to furlough 32,000 as time runs out on aid | National News

“These are people who are not going to be able to pay their rent, they are not going to be able to take care of themselves,” Nelson said on CNBC.

Beyond American and United, smaller airlines have sent layoff warnings to several thousand employees. Delta and Southwest, which entered the pandemic in stronger financial shape than American and United, have shed thousands of jobs through voluntary departures but don’t plan to lay off workers immediately.

Airlines have persuaded tens of thousands of employees to take early retirement or severance deals. But even after those offers, the airlines have more pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and other workers than they need.

Critics say airlines shouldn’t get special treatment, and that subsidizing their workforces will only delay the companies’ need to adjust to the downturn in travel — which even airline trade groups think will last three or four years.

“The airlines are

Struggling Airline Industry Braces for Looming Oct. 1 Furloughs as Congress Drags Feet on Aid | National News

The airline industry is bracing for imminent job cuts as air carriers and their unions plead with Congress to extend coronavirus-related aid before Thursday – a prospect that looks dimmer by the day.

Unless Congress acts, more than 35,000 flight attendants, pilots and on-the-ground airline workers will be furloughed or laid off on Oct. 1, when the clock runs out on prohibitions barring carriers from reducing their workforces.

Congress passed a $25 billion bailout package in March to help the hard-hit industry stay afloat during the pandemic and avoid layoffs, and airlines in return were required to keep their employees on the payroll through September.

Air carriers have been warning of mass job cuts since summer, urging Congress to act, though they have been able to significantly whittle down the number of planned cuts because large swaths of workers have taken early retirement deals, departure packages and other forms of
