Area Civil War history buffs work to clean up Fort D (11/20/05)
If Fort D in Cape Girardeau hasn't gotten much public attention, Scott House doesn't think it's because people don't care. He thinks it's because they don't know. They don't know, for example, that it's one of only three surviving Civil War earthwork fortifications in Missouri. Or that Union soldiers dug shelters into the hillside to escape the cold or passed the time bowling on the grounds in south Cape Girardeau with homemade wooden pins and 32-pound cannon balls...

Milford Allen, 73, of Cape Girardeau died Saturday, Nov. 19, 2005, at Southeast Missouri Hospital. Arrangements are incomplete at McCombs Funeral Home in Cape Girardeau.
An addict's obsession (11/20/05)
John vividly remembers the day about 16 years ago when he went from being a recreational cocaine user to a crack addict. "It was at a party, and we were snorting cocaine, and that had a lot of appeal to me. I was a speeder, I was into moving fast and feeling brilliant, and that's what the drug does to you, it makes you feel powerful."...
Cemetery supporters seek lights, taller fence (11/20/05)
Historic preservation enthusiasts anxious to avoid a repeat of the October vandalism at Old Lorimier Cemetery want elaborate security measures.

Education law leaves gifted out of equation (11/20/05)

Area craft shows draw in families, donate to causes (11/20/05)
The area craft shows this weekend are a family affair -- for buyers and sellers alike. "We look forward to it every year," said Karen Lacewell of Cape Girardeau. She and her daughter, Kerry, began shopping Friday night at the Bavarian Halle in Fruitland. On Saturday, they arrived at the Osage Community Centre as soon as it opened. Around noon, they left with a polished wooden rocking horse with a cotton mane...
Clinic helps child cancer survivors with late effects (11/20/05)
ST. LOUIS -- Living in the moment is not uncommon when a family has a child struggling with cancer: family members need to get the facts, commit to sometimes grueling treatment and hold their lives together. But as the numbers of childhood cancer survivors increases nationwide, so too has the understanding that cancer, and the treatments used to fight it, can result in medical, educational or personal complications years later...
Records for nuclear missile parts allegedly falsified (11/20/05)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The owners and an employee of a now-defunct Florida company have been charged with falsifying test records for metal that was to be made into nuclear missile components. A two-count fraud indictment returned Wednesday accuses Timothy J. Muldoon, 53, and Tina A. Muldoon, 46, and sales manager Russell B. Cohen, 47, of forging test documents to show they had performed required quality testing on 48 metal bars...
Nearly half of Kansas City high school's teachers call in sick (11/20/05)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Angry that a student didn't get a longer suspension for bringing a Taser stun gun to school in October, nearly half of the teachers at a Kansas City high school called in sick Friday. Students at Central High School started the day in the gymnasium after 32 of the school's 70 teachers didn't show up, district spokesman Edwin Birch said. Eventually, substitutes and other staff were used to fill the vacancies...
Accident on way to funeral kills three (11/20/05)
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Three Illinois residents driving to a family funeral in Texas were killed late Friday when the car they were riding in was struck and tore in half by a tractor trailer.

Nurses cope with harassment from patients (11/20/05)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Nurses trying to provide the compassionate care expected of them sometimes confront patients who ask for more -- like sex, or at least a little sexual stimulation.

JAKARTA, Indonesia -- A magnitude-6.5 quake struck an island off the coast of Sumatra on Saturday, triggering a tsunami alert, officials said. The quake's epicenter was located on Simeulue Island, about 160 miles southwest of Medan on Sumatra's west coast, according to the U.S. ...
Activists hope to make church of Emmett Till's funeral a historic site (11/20/05)
CHICAGO -- In 1955 in a small, nondescript church, the mutilated body of 14-year-old Emmett Till was put on display in an open casket because his mother wanted the nation to see what racism looked like. Historians and activists call that one of the most significant early statements about civil rights and now, a half-century later, there is a movement to turn that church, the Roberts Temple Church of God in Christ, into a historic city landmark...
Jury holds former general responsible for torture (11/20/05)

Clinton, Giuliani put 2008 presidential race in a New York state of mind (11/20/05)
ALBANY, N.Y. -- In a political universe unaccustomed to single-name celebrities there are "Hillary" and "Rudy." Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is the only former first lady ever elected to public office. Republican Rudolph Giuliani is the man dubbed "America's Mayor" for his leadership after terrorists struck his city, New York, on Sept. 11, 2001...
Lawmakers reject immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq (11/20/05)
WASHINGTON -- The House late on Friday overwhelmingly rejected calls for an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq, a vote engineered by Republicans that was intended to fail. Democrats derided the vote as a political stunt. "Our troops have become the enemy. We need to change direction in Iraq," said Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania, a Democratic hawk whose call a day earlier for pulling out troops sparked a nasty, personal debate over the war...

India, Pakistan open frontier for civilians (11/20/05)
TEETHWAL, India -- For the first time in 58 years, Indians legally walked into Pakistan on Saturday after a landmark decision to open divided Kashmir's heavily militarized border.

K-State's Snyder goes out with win (11/20/05)
MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Bill Snyder stood at the podium with a smile and a confession. "If there was any good coaching today," he said, "it wasn't by me. The assistants did a great job. ... I was just there." Snyder joked and choked up by turns, at one point stopping to say, "OK, now I'm just rambling," after Kansas State's 36-28 victory over Missouri on Saturday, his last game as the Wildcats' coach...
Southeast finishes Billings' sixth season 2-9 (11/20/05)

Fan Speak Nov20 (11/20/05)
Difference of opinion I READ with interest the article on Lauren Lueders signing with Vanderbilt. Congratulations to her. She's certainly a great player. But I must take issue with Saxony Lutheran coach John Daniels' outrageous statement that he's seen every girls basketball player in Southeast Missouri since 1974 and that Lauren Lueders is by far the best player that he has seen. ...

After Illini finish 2-9 season, Zook guarantees it won't happen again (11/20/05)
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Northwestern's offense rolled up three dozen first downs and 596 yards, but a third-quarter interception by a defensive tackle was Randy Walker's pick for play of the day in the Wildcats' 38-21 win over Illinois on Saturday. "It was that spark, that catalyst. We gave our offense another possession," said Walker, the Wildcats coach. "It was huge, probably the play of the game."...
St. Louis set for Warner's return (11/20/05)
ST. LOUIS -- Kurt Warner led the St. Louis Rams to two Super Bowls and won a pair of MVP awards, and legions of fans still have not come to grips with his departure. Dial up sports talk radio any day during the football season, and invariably the perceived shoddy treatment regarding Warner losing the starting job to Marc Bulger in 2003 -- and his ultimate release before the 2004 season -- will come up. ...
Edwards will start final race out front (11/20/05)
HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Carl Edwards keeps doing things nobody expects. Edwards, nearing the end of his first full season in NASCAR Nextel Cup with a mathematical chance to overtake veterans Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson for the championship, won the pole for today's season-ending Ford 400...
Sorenstam nears 10th win of year at ADT tourney (11/20/05)
Annika Sorenstam survived gusty conditions Saturday to barely stay in the lead at the season-ending ADT Championship in West Palm Beach, Fla. Sorenstam played cautious on the final hole and settled for a bogey, giving her a 2-over 74 to end her streak of nine consecutive rounds at par or better at Trump International. The only good news was her one-shot lead over Marisa Baena and Liselotte Neumann as she tries to win for the 10th time this year...

Can any coach turn Southeast into winning football program? (11/20/05)
I have to say I was pretty stunned when I heard the news Friday that Tim Billings will no longer be Southeast Missouri State's football coach. While Billings officially resigned -- he coached his final game Saturday when the Redhawks ended the season at Tennessee Tech -- he was basically ushered out by the administration with two years remaining on his contract...
Gutbusters (11/20/05)
Three thousand. That's how many calories the average Thanksgiving meal contains. To burn off 3000 calories, the average person would have to jog for nearly four hours. Four hours of jogging in exchange for one meal? The math doesn't add up to an enjoyable holiday...
Baseball and Christmas combined in one location (11/20/05)
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- The National Baseball Hall of Fame is open year-round, but Cooperstown's "Candlelight Evening" takes place just once a year. This year, the holiday tradition -- which includes a visit from Santa, wagon and sleigh rides, caroling and children's activities -- is scheduled for Dec. 18. The centerpiece of the event is the illumination by candlelight of the 19th-century homes and shops in the Farmers' Museum...
Believe it or not (11/20/05)
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The first thing you'll probably notice is the shark. At 17 feet long, it's the biggest ever caught on rod and reel. What's left of its two terrifying tons now hangs preserved above a dull warehouse floor. There are also medieval torture devices, human skull drinking glasses, a Coke bottle-shaped coffin and curious mix of embalmed livestock born with too many heads or limbs. These items and many more are stored in a central Florida warehouse -- all without an audience...
Crisp, clean, cozy (11/20/05)
Neatly trimmed shrubs line the front of this ranch-style, multi-colored tan brick home with dark green shutters. A short walk down the road leads to the start of the Cape LaCroix recreation trail. The white front door opens to small foyer that leads to the white walls and carpet of the living room with a lighted ceiling fan hanging from a cathedral ceiling. The living room, at the center of the house, provides direct access to the kitchen, basement, dining room and bedrooms...
Share Thanksgiving meal with infants (11/20/05)
NEW YORK -- It's nice to have the whole family together at the Thanksgiving table -- and that includes the youngest members. But it wouldn't be nice to expect those celebrating their first Thanksgiving to just sit and coo while everyone else chows. James Boyce, the executive chef at Studio at Montage Resort & Spa in Laguna Beach, Calif., developed a recipe that gives the flavor of the season in a form even infants can enjoy...
Parents and children can fuel a mutual fondness for reading (11/20/05)
NEW YORK -- Literacy is a life lesson -- beginning at the first cry or coo, and basically never ending -- so to get people psyched up for something that can seem daunting, it's best to get them hooked young. Reading aloud to infants, toddlers, preschoolers and then schoolchildren and beyond might be the best bait, says Dawnene D. Hassett, assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the department of curriculum and instruction...
A typical fight in the Miller home (11/20/05)
Husband-and-wife journalists Bob Miller and Callie Clark Miller share the same small house, tiny bathroom and even the same office. But not always the same opinion. The Southeast Missourian sweethearts offer their views on every-day issues, told from two different perspectives...
Two Claudes (11/20/05)
NEW YORK -- The last time conductor David Robertson led the St. Louis Symphony in a performance of Claude Debussy's "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun," he had only 30 minutes of rehearsal to devote to it. Called at the last minute to fill in for the orchestra's then-ailing music director, Hans Vonk, he accepted the challenge and saved the night back in February 2002...

The 65% solution: If you want to help, restore funding levels. (11/20/05)
By Dr. Arnold E. Bell This is a letter I sent to state Sen. Jason Crowell of Cape Girardeau, who represents the 27th District in the Missouri Senate: Dear Senator Crowell: Thank you for the information on the 65 percent mandate. I was aware of the possible push by the governor's office a couple of months ago. I was not then, nor am I now, supportive of such a mandate...
The 65% solution: This is no solution. Let school boards decide. (11/20/05)
By Dr. Carter D. Ward The 65 percent solution for school funding being proposed by Gov. Matt Blunt is simply a shell game that will do nothing to improve student achievement in Missouri's public schools. The proposal, which is the creation of Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne, would require school districts to spend at least 65 percent of their budgets on what the proposal defines as "classroom instruction."...
On evolution (11/20/05)
The Sedalia (Mo.) Democrat The Kansas State Board of Education has taken another whack at science with its revision of the state science curriculum standards. The new standards cast doubt on the validity of scientific explanations for the origin of life on Earth and the theory of evolution.

Transportation planning (11/20/05)
Plans for creating a metropolitan planning organization for Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Scott City and Cape Girardeau County are back on the front burner. An MPO is considered important to the area mainly because it gives more local control over transportation planning: highways, interchanges, bridges, airports.

Bond supports veterans' issues (11/20/05)
To the editor; I -- like my acquaintance of many years, Roger Hays -- had the privilege of serving our great nation as a U.S. Marine during the Vietnam War. But that's where our commonality ends. Once again, Roger has his facts wrong. The truth is the American veteran has no better friend in the U.S. Senate than Kit Bond. Senator Bond's record of sponsoring bills supporting Veterans speaks volumes...
No support for veterans' parade (11/20/05)
To the editor: On Nov. 12, my friend and I went to see the Veterans Day parade that was to come up Broadway in Cape Girardeau. There was an anticipation of seeing the veterans proudly marching. The veterans were there. Where was the public support? It was a beautiful day. ...
