'Pharmers' market - Biotech taking root (10/29/01)
In a greenhouse tucked away in Indianapolis flourishes corn being engineered to provide the active ingredients in gels that fight herpes and kill sperm.

Walkers prepare Center for Baptist convention by praying (10/29/01)
As crews tried to fasten a large, swinging projection screen to rafters 20 feet in the air, two college students sat with fingers intertwined, eyes closed and heads bowed.

Bioterrorism guidelines take effect on Thursday (10/29/01)
Years before anthrax in the mail became a national phobia, a man told his sister he was developing a bacteria to send in envelopes filled with razor blades.

How his garden grows - Eclectic farmer needs little space (10/29/01)
LAMAR, Mo. -- Ernest Winslow contends he can grow all the string beans a family cares to eat. No great shakes, you might say. But can you grow them in a 14-inch-by-12-inch plastic foam container? Winslow says he can, and has. At age 67, Winslow loves to play with raising different flowers, fruits and vegetables in unique ways in addition to "normal" gardens...

Missouri city shares lowest homicide rate in nation last year (10/29/01)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- St. Joseph shared the nation's lowest homicide rate last year while Columbia experienced an unusual spike in killings, newly released FBI statistics show.

Artist fails in bid to hit moon with laser pointers (10/29/01)
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- The goal Saturday night was to put a temporary red mark on the dark side of the first-quarter moon -- an artistic vision of Columbia resident James Downey.

E-commerce a boost for economy in rural areas (10/29/01)

State workers see rates soar for insurance (10/29/01)
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Since Jeanne Henry went to work for the state nearly 10 years ago, her nurse's salary has risen about 25 percent. Her health insurance has gone up 300 percent. But that seemingly large gap understates the actual difference. When Henry went to work at the Fulton State Hospital in 1992, she was paying health insurance premiums for herself, spouse and four children. The total: $89 a month...

Associated Press WriterWASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court rejected a challenge Monday to a state law requiring schoolchildren to observe a daily minute of silence.

AP Business WriterNEW YORK (AP) -- Investors, unsure that the market's month-long recovery will continue, cashed in their winnings Monday and sent stocks sharply lower.

Market offers new puzzle for investors (10/29/01)
NEW YORK -- Third-quarter earnings season has created something of a paradox: an increase in profit warnings, yet decent rallies in the stock market. If you factor in the vast political and economic uncertainty following the Sept. 11 terror attacks and the spread of anthrax, it's even harder to imagine why anyone would want to buy on Wall Street...

Scientists find role of gene linked to rare hair-loss diseases (10/29/01)
NEW YORK -- In a finding that may someday help scientists understand and treat ordinary baldness, researchers say they've identified a normal role for a gene that causes two rare hair-loss disorders when it's disabled. So far, even with the new work, there's no evidence of a direct link between the "hairless" gene and typical baldness. In fact, the new work doesn't even explain why the gene causes the rare hair-loss disorders when it malfunctions...
Meteorite hunters scour Southwest for space rocks (10/29/01)
PHOENIX -- The sunshine sparkling on his meteorite-encrusted wedding ring and Van Halen blaring from his car stereo, Bob Haag rolled into Portales, N.M., looking for space rocks. He had heard the news less than 24 hours earlier: Rare iron-rich stone meteorites had landed near the eastern New Mexico town. Armed with a pocket full of $100 bills and banking on another big score, the self-styled "long-haired hippy kid from Tucson" hit the road...
Southern cities puzzle over top spot on crime list (10/29/01)
Southern cities dominated the FBI's latest per capita crime rankings, with Tuscaloosa, Ala., tops in overall crime, and Pine Bluff, Ark., Greenville, N.C., and Jackson, Tenn., among the leaders in violent and property offenses. But does this mean Southerners should pack up and move to safer cities, or is it more of an image problem for Dixie chambers of commerce?...
Miami mayoral race attracts diverse crowd (10/29/01)
MIAMI -- Without a major crisis like the Elian Gonzalez custody dispute or a corruption scandal, this year's mayoral campaign has been a low-key affair. But it's not lacking in colorful characters. Voters on Nov. 6 will pick from an incumbent accused of throwing a tea canister at his wife and nine other challengers, including a former mayor unseated after a voter fraud scandal, two lawyers who represented Elian's Miami relatives and a member of the Florida Socialist Workers Party...

Israel starts pullback operation (10/29/01)
BETHLEHEM, West Bank -- Israeli forces began pulling out of two West Bank towns Sunday, despite an attack by Palestinian gunmen on a bus stop in the north of the country that killed four Israelis.

Rams stumble to first defeat (10/29/01)
ST. LOUIS -- When the St. Louis Rams scored on a pair of trick plays early in the game, the New Orleans Saints seemed to be in trouble. Apparently, they were merely pacing themselves.

What shall we hoard? (10/29/01)
Hal Borland, my favorite nature writer, author of many books and former columnist for the New York Times, describes so well the hoarding instincts that touch all life at this season. One can just mentally see his squirrels digging little pantry holes in the ground to drop in an acorn, even patting the ground around as if putting on a lid or a sealer. Perhaps his footprint is meant to be a label, "Property of Squirrel No. 6."...
Kline keeps roots in stage between films (10/29/01)
TORONTO -- Kevin Kline is that rarity among American actors: A classically trained artist who so loves live performance it's a wonder he comes off stage long enough to make a film.

Supposedly a doctor examines the information provided by the buyer and writes a prescription...
