Oprah also sought to protect brand, analysts say (01/29/06)
CHICAGO -- When Oprah Winfrey confronted disgraced author James Frey on a recent live taping of her talk show, analysts say her motive wasn't only about bringing the truth to light, it was about protecting her brand. "She did it textbook correct in terms of how to handle crisis PR," said marketing strategist Laura Ries, president of Ries & Ries in Atlanta. "It was honest, it was real, and it was just the right thing to do for her brand as well."...
Volunteers bequeath artificial joints to lab (01/29/06)
CHICAGO -- It may seem slightly impolite, but doctors at one Chicago hospital routinely ask patients with artificial knees and hips if they wouldn't mind returning their joints when they're done with them.

Getting in touch with art (01/29/06)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Warren Logan's hands skim the 15th-century marble bust, tracing the lifeless eyes, the slightly agape mouth, the precisely chiseled fur. He is blind, but he can see. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art's new touch tour is among programs at more than 100 museums nationwide that attempt to do what once was thought impossible: make art accessible -- even visible -- to those with little or no sight...
Deft handling of mine disasters propels popularity of W.Va. governor (01/29/06)
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- For nearly a month, Gov. Joe Manchin has been a fixture on front pages and television news shows, handling back-to-back coal mining tragedies with care, compassion and a commitment to action.

Pelosi- No president should have Bush's spying powers (01/29/06)
WASHINGTON -- House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says President Bush should have used his extensive authority under the law to monitor suspected terrorists rather than approve the National Security Agency's disputed monitoring program.

Bush to propose cuts in fighter plane production, Army Reserve (01/29/06)
WASHINGTON -- President Bush will use his new budget to propose cutting the size of the Army Reserve to its lowest level in three decades and stripping up to $4 billion from two fighter aircraft programs. The proposals, likely to face opposition on Capitol Hill, come as the Defense Department struggles to trim personnel costs and other expenses to pay for the war in Iraq and other pricey aircraft and high-tech programs.

Perryville boys basketball coach Joel Roth has approached the annual Mayor's Cup rivalry game against St. Vincent with the same strategy in each of his three seasons. Roth has focused his team's defense on St. Vincent's inside players, making the Indians beat Perryville from the outside...
Four players from Southeast's NCAA tourney team took in game (01/29/06)
Several members of Southeast Missouri State's 1999-2000 NCAA tournament team attended Saturday's game against Murray State at the Show Me Center. If only they had been able to suit up for the Redhawks. Unfortunately -- at least if you're a Southeast fan -- that is not allowed. So all they could do was watch as the Racers dealt the Redhawks their sixth straight loss, 76-69, in a contest that was televised nationally by ESPN2...
Racers reject Redhawks' bid (01/29/06)
A 27-7 advantage in successful free throws normally would mean a good chance at victory. But little has been normal about this Southeast Missouri State basketball season -- and that trend continued Saturday afternoon. The Redhawks, despite a big-time edge at the free throw line, perhaps missed out on a golden chance at a major upset, as Murray State posted a 76-69 victory at the Show Me Center...
'Hawks climb into tie for first (01/29/06)
A dominant second half paved the way for Southeast Missouri State's sixth straight victory. As an added bonus, the Redhawks have also climbed to the top of the Ohio Valley Conference. Southeast, leading by just one point at halftime Saturday night, rolled past visiting Murray State 71-52...

Showcase the women LET'S TALK about the front of the Jan. 20 sports section. The Redhawks women's basketball team had won three of the last four games.

'12th Man' takes over Seattle (01/29/06)
SEATTLE -- Around Seattle, the symbol of the Seattle Seahawks' "12th Man" is like winter rain. It's everywhere. Every day. Over downtown office towers. Across the sides of buildings. On the jacket lapel and over the entry to the state Capitol suite of Gov. Christine Gregoire...
Steelers place emphasis on fixing running attack (01/29/06)
PITTSBURGH -- No matter the era, the Pittsburgh Steelers always stay the same -- in good times and bad -- and that means their offense relies on the running game to set up the pass, and not the other way around. Not these Steelers, at least not in these playoffs, and that's a source of worry to coach Bill Cowher. Especially just a week from only the second Super Bowl appearance in 26 years for a franchise whose offensive philosophy changes less than any other NFL team...
Missouri falls below .500 in conference after Nebraska dominates (01/29/06)
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska's Jamel White couldn't have picked a better time to have a breakout game.

Trends favored Federer in pursuit of another Grand Slam tourney (01/29/06)
MELBOURNE, Australia -- Roger Federer clearly didn't want to empathize with opponent Marcos Baghdatis ahead of the Australian Open final, which took place earlier today.

Garcia, Woods make charge in third round (01/29/06)
SAN DIEGO -- Sergio Garcia believes his putting is now good enough to take him to new heights. The first step will be getting past Tiger Woods in the Buick Invitational. Garcia overcame a double bogey on the second hole that nearly wrecked his round, then hit 8-iron into 5 feet for a birdie on the 18th hole Saturday and a 4-under 68, giving him a share of the lead with Rod Pampling of Australia...
Pistons have goal of reclaiming title (01/29/06)
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Detroit Pistons are off to one of the best starts in NBA history because a championship-caliber team has found a way to improve. New coach Flip Saunders has managed to help the 2004 champions, who fell short of repeating last year, become more explosive on offense while maintaining their stifling defense...
Illinois extends home winning streak to 33 (01/29/06)
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Purdue coach Matt Painter knew his team would have to make No. 8 Illinois play a halfcourt game if the Boilermakers were to have a chance to stop the Illini's 32-game home winning streak. The Illini responded with perhaps their quickest game of the season and spent much of the day getting transition baskets on the way to a 76-58 victory Saturday, tying Southern Illinois and Gonzaga for longest home streak in the country...
Four-point deer regulation not good policy in Southeast region (01/29/06)
A balanced deer herd and bigger bucks -- that's what the Missouri Department of Conservation hopes to offer with its four-point deer antler regulation. Now the Conservation Department wants to expand the four-point regulation to eight counties in Southeast Missouri after only a two-year pilot program in 29 northern and central counties...
Losing streak increases speculation about Garner's status (01/29/06)
Murray State's 76-69 nationally televised victory over host Southeast Missouri State Saturday afternoon was fairly predictable. After all, the Racers annually are one of the Ohio Valley Conference's top teams, and they're tied for first place now...
Party planner offers baby shower ideas (01/29/06)
NEW YORK -- A baby shower is supposed to be a happy occasion, so why do so many people cringe at the thought of attending one? Sometimes it's even the mother-to-be who is thinking of an excuse to leave before it starts. "A shower can be boring," acknowledges entertainment consultant Gia Russo...
The new Detroit shows off (01/29/06)
DETROIT -- NFL players said it all season: We want to go to Detroit. While the Motor City is destination No. 1 for professional football players, it is probably not among the top tourism destinations for most Americans. But city officials and members of the Super Bowl host committee want out-of-towners to know that a new and improving Detroit awaits them...
Running with dogs (01/29/06)
MAIDSTONE, Vt. -- Here's the advice I get before I'm about to climb onto a sled tied to eight jumping, yipping dogs. "We have three rules of dog sledding," says my guide, Tom Bartlett. "What are they?" I ask. "Don't let go, don't let go, don't ever let go," he says, breaking into a wheezy laugh...

Garden doctor is always in when you have a computer (01/29/06)
NEW MARKET, Va. -- A garden tool growing more popular by the season doesn't have a handle, won't belch smoke, isn't noisy and leaves no dirt on your hands. It's a computer and it's changing the way we do our planting and harvesting. Farmers have been using computers for years for such things as measuring milk production from their cows, drawing up profit and loss statements, keeping track of livestock breeding cycles and maintaining inventories -- often emailing feed and seed orders to their local co-op. ...
Lithgow enchants audiences by being young at heart (01/29/06)
NEW YORK -- The only qualification John Lithgow has for being a children's book author and entertainer is that he was a kid before growing up to be a successful actor. Still, he's made a second career enchanting young audiences. It comes naturally, he says...
Clothes encounters of the larger kind, Part II (01/29/06)
SHE SAID: You may not believe this, but my husband did not think I represented his views accurately in last week's column about weight loss (the one he failed to turn in on time, thereby forcing me to write his part for him). In fact, he immediately called for a do-over. So, I'm keeping my rant short this week, and turning over the majority of space this column allows to my (cute and talented) husband...
