New York City’s mayor says he plans to erect hangar-sized tents as temporary shelter for thousands of international migrants who have been bused into the Big Apple as part of a campaign by Republican governors to disrupt federal border policies. The tents are among an array of options the city is considering as it struggles to find housing for an estimated 13,000 migrants who have wound up in New York after being bused north from border towns in Texas and Arizona. New York City’s huge system of homeless shelters has been straining to accommodate the unexpected newcomers.

A bargain hunter at an estate sale in Maine came away with a purchase that's downright medieval. Will Sideri said he was looking for a KitchenAid mixer, bookshelf or vintage clothes but what caught his eye was a framed document. The 24-year-old soon learned the page contained Latin script and musical notations from about 700 years ago. Academics say it came from a Roman Catholic liturgy used in the Beauvais Cathedral in France, and dates to the late 13th century. It was a bargain for Sideri at $75. An expert on manuscripts says the document could be worth as much as $10,000.
