Kambri Crews grew up in a rather unusual family. Both of her parents are deaf. Kambri and her brother were granted extraordinary freedoms. Their parents couldn't hear what the kids were up to and Kambri and her brother could hear perfectly well. So they got into lots of mischief.
When Kambri was a young girl the family moved out to the middle of nowhere, a densely wooded Texas acreage. They lived in primitive conditions. Her parents were often on the verge of breaking up.
Officials in a southern Ohio county hard hit by the recent tornado and storms say they won't appeal a federal denial of disaster aid.

Gov. John Kasich announced Friday that the Barack Obama administration had turned down the disaster request. Ohio has activated state programs to help residents and businesses.
