Tylan, the Rotary Park frog, is finally fully functional. The frog statue was installed over a year ago, but was not functional as a water feature. According to Moab Community Development Director David Olsen, the frog is now working after a donation from the Moab Rotary Club, and a lot of time donated by Rick Hirschfeld. The frog is operated by a foot-pedal. When the pedal is depressed, the frog shoots a stream of water at a dragonfly in the middle of the flower. Photo by Laura Haley

    A photo of Louis Armstrong is framed by his trumpet at the Louis Armstrong House Museum on Friday Oct. 17, 2014 in New York. The image is part of the collection from photographer Jack Bradley, whose close friendship with Armstrong gave him unrestricted access to make thousands of photographs of the great jazz musician. A portion of his collection is featured in a new exhibition opening Tuesday at the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona, Queens. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)NEW YORK (AP) — Louis Armstrong sometimes referred to Jack Bradley as his "white son," inviting him to private rehearsals, recording sessions, on the road, his dressing room and home. Bradley had unrestricted access to his hero for 12 years, documenting him through thousands of photographs and saving Armstrong's sound recordings, fan letters — and even handkerchiefs.
