Stories from Sunday, July 9, 2006

House in a box (07/09/06)
The home is simple of style and sturdy of appearance. Nothing much stands out about the dwelling on North Middle Street in Cape Girardeau. But to the trained eye the telltale details jump out. The four-sided gambrel roof, the original wood siding, the door knob and hinges that look as if they belong on a doll-house. The pieces are all prefabricated, but the prefab is from a distant era...
Cape's first bus since 1969 starts Monday (07/09/06)
With gas prices near record highs, now should be the best possible time to begin offering a bus service as a low-price alternative. And Monday morning, the Cape Girardeau County Transit Authority will discover whether that is true locally with the first public bus to run on city streets since 1969...
Restored bomber a big draw at air show (07/09/06)
The stainless steel skin of the B-17 Flying Fortress gleamed in the harsh summer sun while crew members sat under the shade provided by its 103-foot wingspan. Machine guns jutted defiantly from the front, sides, rear and from the gun turret in the belly of the four-engine bomber capable of delivering a 6,000-pound load more than 1,800 miles...
Unanswered call (07/09/06)
When he was a young boy in Nigeria, it was the joyful spirit of his town's priest that caught Patrick Nwokoye's attention. Later, memories of that prompted Nwokoye toward the priesthood. But even before that, he was listening for God's call. The ability to listen is what the Cape Girardeau pastor believes to be the cause of dwindling numbers of priests around the world...

The book was sold at the museum as a way to keep it operating...

Japanese beetles proving pesky in parts of Missouri (07/09/06)
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- They look like small June bugs, but they eat up leaves on hundreds of plants, including corn and soybeans.

10 years after Flight 800 explosion, doubts about cause remain (07/09/06)
SHIRLEY, N.Y. -- A little past 8:30 p.m., as the blistering July sun melted in the west, a jumbo jet carrying students, honeymooners, businessmen and others to Paris exploded in a fireball, raining carnage into the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island.

G-8 summit may need a makeover (07/09/06)

Terrorism arrests show U.S. willing to act early on plots (07/09/06)

Guantanamo suicide investigation finds evidence of broader plot (07/09/06)
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- An investigation into three apparent suicides at the Guantanamo Bay prison has found that other detainees may have helped the men hang themselves or were planning to kill themselves too.

Horseshoes may not require running, participants make good pitches as athletes (07/09/06)
Horseshoes is an activity that haphazardly walks the line between sport and something else, between skill and luck, between leisure and legitimate competition. Sure, some physical effort is required. "It takes talent and practice -- lots of practice. It takes talent to throw 40 feet, get your shoe to flip right, and get on that stob," said Mike Davault, an Advance resident who plays regularly in sanctioned tournaments...

Fan Speak July9 (07/09/06)
No big deal SOUTHEAST MISSOURI State's NCAA violations seem like much ado about nothing. Who cares if a women's basketball player gets help moving a bed or is allowed to use a computer? Does that really affect the competitiveness of the game? I think not. Coach B.J. Smith has done a fine job, and he should be allowed to keep it up...
Scott County takes walk -- and win-- on the wild side (07/09/06)
For a game with 21 walks, it was only fitting Scott County's American Legion team ended a marathon 11-inning game against district foe Cape Girardeau with a bases-loaded walk for a 12-11 victory Saturday at Notre Dame Regional High School. The game lasted more than three hours and nearly reached the 14 innings of baseball that were originally scheduled. The teams agreed to play one nine-inning game rather than a pair of seven-inning affairs due to short benches on both sides...
Capahas drop doubleheader in St. Louis (07/09/06)

Honchar wins fifth stage, has Tour lead (07/09/06)
RENNES, France -- Serhiy Honchar won a time trial Saturday to become the first Ukrainian to take the race leader's yellow jersey in Tour de France history, and American Floyd Landis placed second in the stage to move into second place overall. Honchar, a T-Mobile rider and a former world time trial champion, was by far the strongest rider in Saturday's 32-mile race against the clock. He finished more than a minute ahead of Landis. Sebastian Lang of Germany was third...
Worthy of anticipation (07/09/06)
WIMBLEDON, England -- Celebrating a set-clinching shot during his remarkable run to the Wimbledon final, Rafael Nadal punched the air and dashed to his chair, fist leading the way. That's the way he plays, and woe to those in his path.

Singh claims two-stroke lead over field (07/09/06)

Down to last out, Cardinals rally for win (07/09/06)

Pujols then opened the 10th inning with a solo home run off Roy Oswalt, lifting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-6 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday...
Edwards' team may make more changes in bid to reach Chase (07/09/06)
JOLIET, Ill. -- Despite an early season shakeup that saw him lose his crew chief to teammate Jamie McMurray, Carl Edwards heads into today's race at Chicagoland Speedway just outside the top 10 in the Nextel Cup standings.

Defense paves road to prestigious championship (07/09/06)
BERLIN -- No Italian opponent has scored in this World Cup. France has allowed two goals overall. Even with all the offensive flair on both sides, defense will decide the title today in Olympic Stadium. The Azzurri have been so impenetrable in six matches that only Cristian Zaccardo got the ball past outstanding goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. Zaccardo plays defense for Italy...
Schweinsteiger lifts Germany past Portugal (07/09/06)
STUTTGART, Germany -- This third-place game had meaning -- for Germany, at least. Capping a jubilant World Cup in style, the hosts defeated Portugal 3-1 Saturday on two sensational goals by Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Edmonds' catch was hot topic Friday (07/09/06)
HOUSTON -- Jason Marquis knew who to thank for preserving his victory for the Cardinals on Friday night. Center fielder Jim Edmonds made another highlight-reel catch at a key juncture in the Cardinals' 8-2 victory against the Houston Astros. "Edmonds' play was huge," Marquis said.

Mauresmo beats Henin-Hardenne (07/09/06)
WIMBLEDON, England -- Amelie Mauresmo sank into her chair after losing the first set of the Wimbledon final and buried her face in a towel.

Color this tourney red, yellow and blue (07/09/06)
BERLIN -- This might have been the most colorful World Cup. A good thing if blue -- as in Italy's Azzurri and France's Les Bleus -- is your shade of choice. A bad thing if the most memorable hues are yellow and red. When Italy and France meet in today's final, Olympic Stadium will be awash in cobalt and azure. ...
Upon further review, punishment for Southeast doesn't fit violations (07/09/06)
I'm back from California -- rejuvenated, I might add, after a nice vacation -- and I've got several more thoughts about the recent announcement regarding NCAA violations within the Southeast Missouri State women's basketball program. First of all, let me say that last week's initial comments were pretty much off the cuff, without having a chance to fully digest everything and also before talking to various people whose opinions I respect. ...
Exterior facelift for your home can translate to better resale value (07/09/06)
Though the real estate market has cooled of late, the average American homeowner can still enjoy tremendous benefits when it comes to sprucing up the home's exterior. Nothing speaks more to pride of ownership than the exterior appearance or "curb appeal" of the home. And curb appeal goes well beyond the borders of the lot on which a home is situated. Nice communities are comprised of good neighborhoods and good neighborhoods are built from well-cared-for homes...
Surfers - Both hot and cool (07/09/06)
NEW YORK -- Forget riding the wave, today's surfers are ahead of it when it comes to style. The same goes for skateboarders and snowboarders. They play by their own rules, often combining function and fashion to satisfy both their needs and image. Until recently, though, extreme sports was a niche market, largely teenage boys who aren't usually at the top of the tastemakers' go-to list. ...
Bridge being built around rock slide at Yosemite park (07/09/06)
SAN FRANCISCO -- A bridge will be built around a rock slide that closed a main route to Yosemite National Park and disrupted business and life in the area, state transportation officials announced. The company chosen for the project, Teichert Construction, has started moving equipment and bridge parts to California Route 140, which has been blocked since April 29 by 3 million cubic yards of rock and debris...
Great Eastern Trail promises hiker's haven (07/09/06)
SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. -- In the depths of the Little Possum Gorge, a footpath strewn with the tools that built it suddenly emerges through a forest of hemlock and magnolia to a breathtaking waterfall. The treacherous falls, dubbed "Imodium" after the anti-diarrhea drug by those adventurers whom it has scared witless, was once known only to the most daring of kayakers willing to plunge down the 25-foot drop...
Red Rock Canyon offers nature, not neon lights (07/09/06)
RED ROCK CANYON NATIONAL CONSERVATION AREA, Nev. -- Round a bend on a highway less than 30 minutes drive from the Las Vegas Strip, and a panorama of red rocks, green cactus, gray mountains, blue sky and white clouds opens before you. It's even better at dawn, when rich yellow rays from the east cast a warm hue to the textured hills. Man doesn't shape scenes like this. It smells of fresh mesquite, pinon, creosote and sage. This is nature, not neon...
Old Faithful still faithful despite webcam (07/09/06)
CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Anyone looking recently at the Internet webcam showing Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park might think the geyser had lost its world-renowned reliability.

Riding high, until sales tax hits (07/09/06)
SHE SAID: I should know by now that spur-of-the-moment purchases don't usually work out well for me. Take that $65 fuschia sweater that shrank in the wash, for example. Or that magnet maker/laminator/sticker maker all-in-one machine I just had to have when it was on sale at a local craft store. There was a reason it was on sale...

A president who deserves your trust (07/09/06)
To the editor: All we can remember hearing about during the Clinton years was how we need a president who is straightforward and consistent, a president like Harry Truman who wouldn't waffle on issues or check the political winds for a position.
