Signs of Shutdown - 12 Oct 2013
Images relating to America’s government shutdown. Three of the most famous U.S. National Parks - the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore and the Statue of Liberty - will reopen in the coming days after state governors reached deals despite an ongoing government shutdown.

The governors of Arizona, New York and South Dakota said in separate statements on Friday that they had reached agreements with the federal government to reopen their respective parks between Saturday and Monday.

The emblematic parks are among 401 National Park Service attractions across the United States that shut their gates to fee-paying visitors on Oct. 1 after the U.S. Congress and the White House failed to reach agreement on raising the nation's debt limit.

The Goldsteins work with National Capital Therapy Dogs and regularly visit with hostpal patients at the NIH. This week, they were told that due to the federal government shutdown, they could not enter the complex to visit a 12 year-old patient who has leukemia that is no longer treatable. In previous weeks, both dogs visited the boy and the handlers said that the dog brought a smile to Sam's face. The Goldstein's were told that due to the shutdown, the resident veterinarian at NIH was not available to facilitate the visits.

Tourists flock to Lincoln Memorial as government shutdown looms
A US Parks Policeman walks among tourists flocking to the Lincoln Memorial, in Washington, September 29, 2013, as a possible government shutdown looms in two days. A bitter bi-partisan battle between Republican members of the House and President Barack Obama on government funding and Obamacare remains unresolved and without agreement, the government faces its first shutdown in 17 years, closing U.S. parks, monuments and government offices, but police and security will remain on the job.
