 KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) - U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad told supporters on a Key West beach that they should never ever give up.

 

   Nyad made the comment Monday shortly after she became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage.

 

   Nyad looked dazed and sunburned and her lips were swollen. She arrived at the beach just before 2 p.m. EDT, about 53 hours after she began her swim in Havana on Saturday.

   She is being taken by ambulance to a hospital.

   As she approached the beach, spectators surrounded her in the water, taking pictures and cheering her on.

 NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Thousands of spectators turned out for the annual Newtown Labor Day Parade in Connecticut, capping months of organizing in the aftermath of a shooting rampage that killed 20 first-graders and six educators last December.

 

   Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy and local officials participated in the 52nd-annual Labor Day parade on Monday.

 

   WFSB-TV reports that the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue Co. and Sandy Hook Elementary School students received the loudest applause from spectators along the parade route.

 

   Organizers were wary about a parade so soon after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook.

 

   Labor Day Parade Committee head Beth Caldwell says she worked to balance respect for the tragedy with giving the community a celebration.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — For the first time in 12 years, the National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival has offered a meatless alternative.

Thousands of chicken wing lovers flocked to the poultry mecca of western New York on Saturday to experience the latest and greatest in wings — including hummus dip and breaded green beans flavored like the real thing.

Local chef Steven Binks tells The Buffalo News the trick is in getting the right mix of Frank's Original RedHot and gorgonzola cheese.

The two-day festival features more than 130 different styles of wings, live music and wing-eating contests.

Event founder Drew Cerza said 40 tons of wings will be served up by two dozen restaurants from across the country.

Among the eateries is Buffalo's Anchor Bar, considered the birthplace of Buffalo-style chicken wings.
