Trail of Tears lesson shows city kids about life in the country (10/22/01)
Children in Chicago are used to seeing the kind of Cubs that wear batting gloves and run around an infield, not the kind that have fur coats and scurry around the forest. So when a group of students from Chicago got to see the pelt of a fox cub Sunday afternoon, some of them, like 14-year-old Carolyn Quinn, didn't quite know what to think of it...
Farm bill proposal sets off alarm bells (10/22/01)
WASHINGTON -- A Midwest senator's plan to overhaul agriculture policy by phasing out federal crop subsidies has set off alarm bells in the nation's cornbelt even as it wins praise from the Bush administration.

Markets hold steady, but still need leadership (10/22/01)
NEW YORK -- Wall Street still can't find the one key element needed for a solid recovery: a leader. Investors are doing what they did before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks -- waiting for a market sector to emerge and guide stocks out of their malaise.

Chick flick and Jack the Ripper top box office (10/22/01)
LOS ANGELES -- It was an odd mix of kiss kiss, slash slash at the weekend box office as movie-goers split their attention between a 1960s chick flick and a tale of Victorian-era mass murder.

Heavier birds flying south are best migrators (10/22/01)

Banishment becomes a prison substitute (10/22/01)
SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Some on prosecutor Kelly Burke's list of 62 criminals have served jail time. Many have not. But he proudly puts them all under one heading: "BANNED."

Still, banishment persists in Georgia and Kentucky and possibly other states -- legal scholars don't keep track...
