Jason Bandermann turns off his favorite radio station, but the three-mile drive to Central Junior High School isn't made in silence.

Living, working together as a community is emphasized at the Ca (08/31/03)
Like any teenage group of boys, their wardrobe is mostly street style, with baggy jeans and shorts and oversized athletic shirts with logos emblazened across their chests.

The best for 'bad boys' (08/31/03)
For nearly 100 years, Missouri was among the states that warehoused trouble-making youths in so-called "training schools" that were essentially gulags for children. The state founded a boys reformatory in 1889 at the eastern edge of a small town on the Missouri River. From a distance, the Boonville Training School for Boys resembled a small college campus with red brick dormitories. A closer look revealed barred windows and barbed wire...

Churches help define low German migrants (08/31/03)
SUBLETTE, Kan. -- Pastor Hans Hiebert clasped the hand of a parishioner at Gospel Mennonite Church as the two fervently prayed for God to guide their church leaders.

10,000 rumbling Harleys cruise roads of Milwaukee (08/31/03)
MILWAUKEE -- Ten thousand Harley riders wearing anything from Hog masks and feather boas to black leather roared through the city Saturday on an 8-mile parade celebrating Harley-Davidson's 100th anniversary. The event was as much a tapestry of red, white and blue as the motorcycle icon's signature orange and black. One Harley rider festooned his bike with two dozen American flags...
Alabama chief justice rejects offer from North Carolina (08/31/03)
GASTONIA, N.C. -- Alabama's chief justice appreciates the gesture from Gaston County, but Roy Moore plans to keep his monument of the Ten Commandments close by while he fights in court.

Makers, mailers of computer viruses rarely face jail (08/31/03)
Although nearly 63,000 viruses have rolled through the Internet, causing an estimated $65 billion in damage, criminal prosecutions have been few, penalties light and just a handful of people have gone to prison for spreading the destructive bugs. A Minnesota teenager was arrested Friday, accused of disseminating a version of "Blaster." But investigators scrambling to trace that infection, along with "Sobig" and other computer viruses face a daunting challenge: an incredibly hard-to-track international crime set in an obscure and anonymous environment.. ...
Experts say NASA's safety culture may be too broken to fix (08/31/03)
WASHINGTON -- With NASA under orders to fix its safety culture in the wake of the Columbia tragedy, industrial psychologists and management wizards say extreme measures may be needed: a purge at the top, the return of Apollo-era decision-makers, more businesslike behavior, possibly even a new name...
Russian submarine sinks in Barents Sea (08/31/03)
MOSCOW -- A mothballed Russian submarine being towed to a scrapyard sank in a gale in the Barents Sea on Saturday, killing nine of the 10 crew, the defense minister said. The accident raised concerns of environmental damage in a busy fishing area and further dented the navy's prestige three years after the submarine Kursk sank in the same area with 118 men aboard...
Turks pressing U.S. to combat Kurdish rebels (08/31/03)
DIYARBAKIR, Turkey -- Turkey's war with Kurdish rebels threatens to become a whole new headache for the U.S. military in Iraq. The rebels, who are fighting for autonomy in southeastern Turkey and who have in the past fought for a Kurdish homeland straddling Turkey-Iraqi border, have spurned Turkey's offer of amnesty and are threatening to end their four-year unilateral cease-fire on Monday unless Turkish soldiers stop attacking them...

Two U.S. soldiers were wounded in the fighting...

Saudi Muslim extremists said to be fighting U.S. forces in Iraq (08/31/03)
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- Despite official denials, there have been signs for months that Saudi Muslim extremists have traveled to Iraq to take on U.S.-led forces. Internet memorials to those who died fighting the Americans have popped up and Saudis are quietly swapping tales said to be from the front lines. ...
Galloping in Egyptian desert offers adventure near pyramids (08/31/03)
GIZA, Egypt -- I could lie and say I tore across the desert on a black Arabian stallion, my crop snapping cruelly at the horse's hindquarters as the pyramids rose behind one dune and the searing sun sank behind another. But that would only be partly true...
WTO to let poor countries import cheap drugs (08/31/03)
GENEVA -- Heeding urgent appeals from African countries beset by AIDS, the World Trade Organization agreed Saturday to let impoverished nations import cheap copies of patented medicines needed to fight killer diseases.

MONROVIA, Liberia -- A contingent of about 250 Senegalese soldiers arrived in Liberia on Saturday, increasing the size of the West African peacekeeping force to more than 2,000.

Jordan economy struggles as land that tourism forgot (08/31/03)
ON THE DEAD SEA, Jordan -- The river where Christ was christened. The mountain from which Moses peered at the promised land. The fortress where Herod handed a delighted Salome the freshly severed head of John the Baptist. Not a bad slice of history for a country slightly smaller than Kentucky. ...
Khatami- Iran has no nuclear ambitions (08/31/03)
TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran's president said his country is not seeking to make atomic weapons, but he insisted Saturday it has a right to acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

A day after agreements, North Korea reverts to nuclear threat (08/31/03)
BEIJING -- North Korea took less than a day to break the modest agreement it had made with the United States and four other nations at a six-party summit: to hold more talks aimed at ending a 10-month standoff over its nuclear weapons program. Instead, North Korea angrily dismissed the possibility of further negotiations over its nuclear program on Saturday, the morning after the end of landmark six-nation talks where the isolated regime indicated it might be willing to reach a compromise...

    ST. LOUIS -- Illinois couldn't stop Brad Smith forever.

  • Harden displays big-play side again (08/31/03)
    ST. LOUIS -- In his first career game against Illinois last season, Michael Harden showed why he belonged at cornerback with three pass breakups and eight tackles. He did it again Saturday. Harden disrupted a punt in the first half, one of the Tigers' biggest plays in a 22-15 victory over Illinois. In a game where defense controlled the tempo and big plays were scarce, Harden set up Missouri's first touchdown when he nearly beat Illinois punter Steve Weatherford to the ball...

    Kyle Boller will start at quarterback when the Baltimore Ravens open the NFL regular season in Pittsburgh next Sunday, winning the job from incumbent Chris Redman.

    Capriati bugged by blimp in win (08/31/03)
    NEW YORK -- Jennifer Capriati's finickiness reached new heights Saturday: She wanted the blimp hanging over Arthur Ashe Stadium moved.

    SIU game could be a gauge for Indians' season (08/31/03)
    That Southeast Missouri State University's football team lost its season opener Thursday was not surprising. Although the Indians went to Division I-A Ohio hoping to spring an upset, they entered as underdogs. Still, the Indians showed enough positive signs in the 17-3 defeat -- particularly defensively, although the offense struggled most of the contest -- to reinforce the belief that this could indeed be a big season in Cape Girardeau. ...
    Bird, Thomas good, but not for each other (08/31/03)
    Anyone old enough to remember their bitter NBA battles knew the moment Larry Bird was hired to run the Pacers that Isiah Thomas would be fired as coach. Back then they weren't the worst of enemies, but there was no future in pretending they'd ever be friends. The gap between them was huge to begin with and time has only widened it...

    Stylish women know what not to wear (08/31/03)
    NEW YORK -- For a fashion victim, the first step toward recovery is admitting the problem. Once she acknowledges a flabby tummy, short legs or thick waist, it's fairly easy to find the camouflage that will best hide the figure flaw and let a woman concentrate on her assets, which -- believe it or not -- are sure to outnumber the problems, say Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine, hosts of Britain's "What Not To Wear" TV show...

    Becoming a good photographer involves making mistakes. It's by learning from our mistakes that we become competent with our cameras.
