The following stories have been hand-selected by the Assignment Desk at News4:

WHO OWNS THE SIGNATURE
Gazette: "A historical document signed by Abraham Lincoln -- which a Maryland business owner discovered in a Silver Spring home -- has become a lightning rod in a battle over whether the item belongs to the federal government. Laurie Zook, owner of Frederick estate sales services company Mission: Transition, found the treasure trove of documents a few months ago while preparing items for sale for a client. The items included two hand-signed notes by Lincoln and a rare entry pass to Lincoln's funeral at the White House on April 19, 1865." 

JUJITSU MASTER TEACHES STUDENTS HALF HIS AGE
The Capital: "Doc Cohe isn't much interested in breaking boards with his hands. If a stack was placed in front of him, he'd most likely step around it. But get him on the mat and all bets are off. Even at 82. In graceful moves reminiscent of a slow-motion line dance, Cohe takes down men half his age. A slight side step, an arm lift and a wrist grab is all Cohe needs to fell an opponent - and it happens over and over in his classes."

LAKE RIDGE FLASHER
Insidenova.com: "Police are looking for a man who exposed himself Tuesday to a 13-year-old girl on Cotton Mill Drive in Lake Ridge. The girl reported she was walking home about 5:30 p.m. in the 12200 block of Cotton Mill Drive when she saw the man exposing himself in an older model, blue Dodge pickup."
