LAGOS, Nigeria -- Nigeria vowed Tuesday to block Islamic courts from carrying out any executions by stoning, promising to hold the line against sentences in northern states that have provoked international protests and boycott threats.

Sectional-bound Jackson avenges loss to Farmington (10/30/02)

Crimson Tide back with familiar swagger (10/30/02)

Mickelson's attack worked at East Lake (10/30/02)
ATLANTA-- Jack Nicklaus won most of his 18 major championships by waiting for others to make mistakes. Phil Mickelson doesn't buy that strategy. Not with Tiger Woods around. The world's second-best player doesn't have any majors to prove that his aggressive style is the only way to conquer Woods, but it certainly worked the last time the Tour Championship was held at East Lake Golf Club...
Can aging Jordan control himself and limit minutes? (10/30/02)
WASHINGTON -- At least Michael Jordan was being honest. Asked if he can really control his competitive urge and keep his playing minutes down this season, the Wizards guard replied: "Probably not."

Can't pick out furniture? The stars are ready to help (10/30/02)

Creative parenting needs award (10/30/02)
Failure to bear children by a certain age pretty much revokes your privilege to criticize how other people are raising theirs. But I will simply relay an experience at a St. Louis salad buffet last week. There was a married couple with two daughters, one about 3 and the other probably 8. The 3-year-old stood shrieking in the middle of the buffet while Mom tried to speak to her slowly and rationally...

Call before your start burning your leaves (10/30/02)
With all the governmental regulations, it may come as a surprise to some area residents that outdoor burning is allowed at all. Other residents, however, take outdoor burning -- leaves in particular at this time of year -- for granted. Burning leaves is permitted, but the fire departments in Scott City, Jackson and Cape Girardeau all require residents to notify them before burning. This commonsense requirement is both for safety reasons and to minimize complaints...

Speak Out A 11/30/02 (10/30/02)
Defending alcohol I'M TIRED of hearing about how people want to tax alcohol. I drink a glass of wine every couple of days and have the occasional drink at a restaurant, but I never get falling-down drunk. Drinking these moderate amounts of alcohol has lowered my cholesterol over a six-month period, and I have not changed any other habits. I must conclude, just like other research institutions, that a little alcohol is good for you. However, I fail to see how one cigarette can be good for you...
