Jackson's little league success on the road to something big (08/12/04)
Jackson's boys of summer, the 11-year-old state little league champs, don't play for glory or multimillion-dollar contracts. They play to have fun and enjoy the game.

Two-way Main Street discussed (08/12/04)
For nearly half a century, Main Street traffic has flowed one way from north to south. But the formerly two-way street in downtown Cape Girardeau may be going back to its roots, even if it means moving an ornamental street clock.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Heading into the fall elections, Republicans are in a strong position to retain control of the Missouri House of Representatives, although Democrats have a realistic chance of regaining a majority in the chamber.

Selected spy chief called a CIA critic (08/12/04)
WASHINGTON -- The Republican lawmaker selected by President Bush as America's next spy chief has complained that the CIA is afraid to risk the lives of its officers, too often micromanages its secret operations and ignores its critics.

Stomach stapling deaths raise concerns (08/12/04)
An obese Massachusetts woman and her 8-month-old fetus died of complications 18 months after stomach-stapling surgery, an apparent first that is leading to warnings about the risks of pregnancy soon after the surgery.

Saudis' offer to raise oil output makes little impact on market (08/12/04)
WASHINGTON -- Saudi Arabia sought to calm turbulent oil markets Wednesday by offering to boost production, but after an initial drop in prices the cost of oil rose again by day's end.

Large Muslim cemetery becomes battlefield in Iraq (08/12/04)
NAJAF, Iraq -- Unexploded rockets stick out of tombstones. Booby-trapped artillery shells lie buried on narrow lanes lined with crypts. Guerrilla fighters hide in a vast sea of pockmarked graves filled with underground tunnels, letting loose with rocket-propelled grenades and mortar fire...

Germans look for beauty in their language (08/12/04)
BERLIN -- The languages of Europe are supple: the musical playfulness of Italian, the nasal sensuality of French, the pitter-patter of Portuguese. And then there's the harsh, infinite knot of vowels and consonants that inspired the Mark Twain screed "The Awful German Language." But German is the tongue of Goethe and Thomas Mann. There is poetry. Verbal splendor hides amid syllables jammed like train cars on a cluttered track...
Al-Qaida statements aired at Hamburg Sept. 11 trial (08/12/04)
HAMBURG, Germany -- A senior planner of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks says the Hamburg al-Qaida cell was smaller than investigators believe, consisting only of him and three of the suicide pilots, a court was told Wednesday in the first public release of statements by suspects in U.S. custody...
A dangerous man with paint (08/12/04)
It's probably good that the only thing coming out of Kirby Gartland's gun is paint. He could be pretty dangerous otherwise. Gartland picked up a gun and the paintball habit in fifth grade with some friends. Now a senior in high school, he's one of the most feared 18-year-old gunmen in Southeast Missouri...
Suppan powers Cards (08/12/04)
MIAMI -- If the St. Louis Cardinals could just get the offense going, they'd really be tough to beat. For the second night in a row, St. Louis won without much production from its vaunted lineup. Jeff Suppan allowed only two hits in eight-plus innings, and the Cardinals extended their winning streak to seven games Wednesday night by beating the Florida Marlins 1-0...
St. Louis kicks off preseason vs. Bears (08/12/04)
ST. LOUIS -- There could be no more fitting site for the first game of Lovie Smith's NFL head coaching career -- in St. Louis against the team for whom Smith was defensive coordinator the last three years.

"So I know quite a bit about that place and I'm just looking forward to bringing our team down to play."...
Hamm stars in soccer team's rout over Greece (08/12/04)
IRAKLION, Greece -- The goal was classic Mia. Her assist was even better -- and a lot more fun to watch. Mia Hamm set up a first-half goal with a stutter step that left a Greek defender sprawled on the turf and covering her head in shame. By the time Hamm scored on a solo run in the second half, the U.S. women's soccer team's 3-0 embarrassment of their hosts was complete, compounded by a mostly empty stadium at kickoff Wednesday on the first day of competition in the 2004 Olympic Games...
Whistling toward mystery (08/12/04)
HAVEN, Wis. -- Already billed as a major full of mystery, the PGA Championship got another surprise Wednesday. Ben Curtis pulled a ski cap over his ears -- common attire in Wisconsin, just not in the middle of summer. As Steve Lowery walked up to the 18th green, his frosty breath was visible with every step. The most popular place was next to the fireplace inside the locker room...
Sports briefs 8/12/04 (08/12/04)
Baseball Jason Giambi expects to make a full recovery from health problems that have slowed him this summer and is confident he will return to the New York Yankees' lineup before the end of the season.

Better bandages (08/12/04)
It used to be so simple. You were a kid. You fell down, and skinned your knee. You cried. Mom came to the rescue, washed off your wound and applied hydrogen peroxide or mercurochrome. You cried again. She opened the little can that holds the adhesive bandages, and depending on the extent of your boo-boo, selected the wide kind, or the skinny little one or the dot, and stuck it on. When it was time to peel off the bandage, it hurt. You cried some more...

Responding to the urge to move (08/12/04)
Aug. 12, 2004 Dear Patty, Starting out, joints complain and leg muscles barely lift feet above the pavement. It's more like shuffling than running.

Why I miss Barry (08/12/04)
By Pete Hamill Once upon a time in America, there were public figures like Barry Goldwater. He was a rock-ribbed conservative Republican. I disagreed with almost all of his political positions and could never have voted for him. He was against the trade unions that gave my father a life with dignity. He was a rigid Cold Warrior. He once suggested that my home city of New York be cut off from the United States and floated out to sea...

To the editor: Now that we have the new Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge along with Southeast Missouri State University's River Campus for the visual and performing arts well into development and the renovation of the Marquette Hotel completed, Cape Girardeau's downtown area should be humming.

Potholes are repaired I WANT to thank and commend the street department for fixing the potholes on Water Street north of Broadway. This is much better.
