Farmers market coming to downtown Cape in April (03/19/06)
When the Cape Alternative Farmers Market moves to the downtown area next month, Old Town Cape executive director Tim Arbeiter says it will provide a tasty -- but sorely missing -- ingredient to the historic riverfront district. "Farmers markets are always good for downtown areas," Arbeiter said. "They bring people downtown to shop at the market. We're really excited to have it. When the people come to the market, we hope they'll continue patronizing the other businesses downtown."...

A new lease on land (03/19/06)
When Dr. Richard Martin bought farmland south of Gordonville in 1987, he didn't know what he would do with it. He certainly never imagined the land that he found tilled and barren would one day be a densely forested spot filled with 20 species of trees and producing 7,000 walnuts annually. Nor did he imagine he would play host to the annual meeting of the Missouri Walnut Council this month...
Family attacked at St. Patrick's Day parade (03/19/06)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Shots were fired and a family was attacked in a parking lot during Kansas City's St. Patrick's Day Parade, two years after similar violence prompted police to beef up parade security.

Louisiana faces an unimaginable scenario: An exodus from the coast (03/19/06)
LAFITTE, La. -- Once the salt water is in your veins, Louisiana's coastal folk say, it's hard to give up the lifestyle of moonlit shrimping trips, the town "fais do-do" dances and afternoons spent on the bayous angling for catfish. But since last year's catastrophic hurricanes, this swampy land defined by Cajuns, cypress and tupelo gum forests, bayou-side saloons and, more recently, subdivisions may have become too vulnerable for that lifestyle to continue...
Libby defense focuses on administration infighting over prewar intelligence (03/19/06)
WASHINGTON -- Lawyers for Vice President Dick Cheney's former top aide are signaling they may delve deeply at his criminal trial into infighting among the White House, the CIA and the State Department over pre-Iraq war intelligence failures. In a prelude to a possible defense, the lawyers for I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby also are suggesting that the State Department -- not Libby -- may be to blame for leaking the identity of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame to the media...
Alabama's mad cow case highlights need for U.S. livestock tracking (03/19/06)
WASHINGTON -- Investigators may never figure out where the Alabama cow with mad cow disease was born and raised, in part because the U.S. lacks a livestock tracking system the Bush administration promised two years ago. After the first case of mad cow disease in December 2003, the government pledged to get a nationwide program into place quickly so officials could track cows, pigs and chickens from their birth to the dinner table. Today, however, the system is a long way off...
Feds win concession from Moussaoui judge on evidence (03/19/06)
ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- The death-penalty trial of al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui is back on track after a judge reversed course and agreed to admit some evidence about aviation security.

She had issued that ruling Tuesday as punishment for the alleged misconduct of Transportation Security Administration lawyer Carla J. Martin, who coached witnesses...
Duty and revenge (03/19/06)
AL-ASAD, Iraq -- In the desert chill, on the lonely nighttime roads of Iraq, Joe Johnson looks out over his machine gun and thinks of Justin. It was on Easter morning 2004 that a chaplain and a colonel appeared on Joe and Jan Johnson's Georgia doorstep with the news. Justin, the boy Joe had fished and hunted with, the soldier son who'd gone off to Iraq a month earlier, was suddenly dead at 22, killed by a roadside bomb planted in a Baghdad slum...
Hamas forms government without moderate parties (03/19/06)
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Hamas said Saturday it had completed the formation of its government without succeeding to bring in moderate parties, a step that looked likely to only increase the chances of international isolation.

Initial tests show that Egyptian woman died of bird flu (03/19/06)
CAIRO, Egypt -- Initial tests at a U.S. Navy lab show that a 35-year-old woman who died this week in Egypt had bird flu, officials said Saturday.

Abu Ghraib and the power of symbols (03/19/06)
Covered in a frayed cape, the hooded prisoner in the photograph stands atop a box, wires attached to his outstretched fingers, arms splayed in the eerie pose of a dark prophet. It has become an iconic image of the Abu Ghraib torture scandal -- for some a symbol of American shame, for others a metaphor for war's cost to both victim and victor...

Letter: Worthy of recognition (03/19/06)
It was refreshing to see the recognition given to Bell City senior Jeff Liggins in Thursday's edition.

Farris helps inspire hometown talent (03/19/06)
To the editor: Judith Farris' incredible vocal talent is only matched by her generosity and her love for teaching.

Inspired by her humor and her passion, two and a half hours zipped by. ...

I dare you to read the novels "By the Sword" by Mike Yorkey and Rick Myatt and "Interview With the Devil" by Clay Jacobsen...
