Kindergartners at Franklin Elementary cope with their first week (08/20/06)
As fellow kindergartners watched, Zemiah Mackins quickly matched yellow and green cards that displayed her first name. "I know how to spell my name," she proudly pointed out. Even with name tags around their necks, some of the 5-year-olds in Barb Egbert's kindergarten class had trouble picking out their first names when school started Monday at Franklin Elementary School. But by the end of the week most of the 21 students could pick out their names posted on the wall...
Storms topple Cape trees, power lines (08/20/06)
This time it wasn't the water. It was the wind.

Cell phone users hit with upgrade charges (08/20/06)
When Stacy Corcoran of Fruitland bought a new cell phone about a month ago, the list of itemized charges began to blur after a few seconds. Finally, she just paid them. "It's a crock, I know," Corcoran said. "But at the same time, you can talk cheaper on your cell phones than you can on your home phone. So what are you going to do?"...

Ringers' reunion (08/20/06)
LEOPOLD, Mo. -- For some of the people sweating through repeated games of horseshoes Saturday, regular practice brings the rewards of regular trophies. For others, like Rick Eftink and Bill Senciboy, both of Oran, Mo., the only time they throw for ringers is when tournament time comes around. "We threw our qualifying shoes, and that is it since last year," Eftink said after he and Senciboy had defeated Robin Burger and Brent Burger in their third match of the day...

Lawyers won't try to predict conservative court handling appeal of surveillance program (08/20/06)
CINCINNATI -- Even though the administration's warrantless surveillance program is heading toward an appellate court loaded with Bush appointees, the court's mixed record makes it difficult to predict how it will view the surveillance, lawyers said...
Judge's ruling in deer decoy crash divides 'big football town' (08/20/06)
KENTON, Ohio -- It was intended to be a prank: steal a decoy deer, place it on a country road and watch as motorists swerved to avoid it. It ended with two teenagers suffering serious injuries when their car hit the decoy and rolled into a ditch. When a judge ruled this week that two boys -- both high school football players -- can complete the football season before they serve 60-day sentences at a juvenile detention center, it caused a division in this northwest Ohio city...
Suspect in JonBenet slaying case returning to U.S., media frenzy (08/20/06)
BOULDER, Colo. -- An arrest that initially brought relief to the family of JonBenet Ramsey has since unleashed an onslaught of unwelcome attention that has incensed the slain girl's father, a longtime family lawyer said Saturday. Even as authorities were preparing to extradite John Mark Karr, a teacher who admitted involvement in the 6-year-old's death a decade ago, her father was hounded by camera crews Friday as he took his son to college at Purdue University, attorney Lin Wood said...
States' enforcement of immigration law may be unconstitutional (08/20/06)
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Legislatures around the country are passing state laws to get tough on illegal immigration, but legal experts say many of those laws will turn out to be unconstitutional.

Cat's teeth repaired with gold (08/20/06)
ALEXANDRIA, Ind. -- This cool cat has traded in his catnip for some bling. Sebastian, a 1-year-old Persian with long black hair, sports gold crowns on his two bottom canines, which grew sticking out from his lips in an underbite similar to a bulldog's...
Factory worker trapped in tank of chocolate for 2 hours (08/20/06)
KENOSHA, Wis.-- It might sound like a chocoholic's dream, but stepping into a vat of viscous chocolate became a two-hour nightmare for a 21-year-old man Friday morning.

But it became loose and he slid into the hopper...

Encore performance (08/20/06)
The Central girls tennis team has gone 27-1 in regular season dual play with a pair of district titles in the two years since Annette Slattery has returned to the squad as head coach. With the loss of just three top-six players -- including the state-qualifying doubles team of Dani Gross and Monica Toole -- the Tigers should have the depth and talent to make a run at a third straight district crown when they kick off the regular season at home Tuesday against Farmington...

District assignments for fall high school sports were released Friday morning on the Missouri State High School Activities Association Web Site with a few major shakeups involving some of the area's top fall programs.

Fan Speak Aug20 (08/20/06)
Coaching changes IT IS ridiculous that Central schools -- and Jackson for that matter -- are allowing coaches to leave their positions this late in the game. These people signed contracts and should be held to them. Having to find someone this late is not good for the programs, which in turn is not good for our kids -- and isn't that who the coaches are there for? We're not here to accommodate the coaches and their plans. Hold these people to their contracts...
Pressel joins three atop leaderboard at LPGA's Safeway Classic (08/20/06)

Williams plays like No. 1 pick in Houston's win over St. Louis (08/20/06)
ST. LOUIS -- Mario Williams looked less like a mistake-prone rookie and more like the No. 1 pick of the draft in his second preseason game. Williams, who made a negligible impact in his professional debut last week, got the attention of the St. Louis Rams' offensive line in the Houston Texans' 27-20 victory on Saturday night. Williams drew the Rams into a pair of penalties, batted down a pass to force a punt and tackled running back Tony Fisher for a 3-yard loss...
After slow start, U.S. turns back Puerto Rico (08/20/06)
SAPPORO, Japan -- Puerto Rico was scoring so easily against the United States, maybe the Americans should have considered playing 6-against-5. Actually, they tried that, too. The U.S. eventually overcame a slow start that included a strange sequence in which Carmelo Anthony inbounded the ball despite being out of the game, settling down to beat Puerto Rico 111-100 on Saturday in the opening game of Group D in the world championships...
Kahne among those getting desperate (08/20/06)
BROOKLYN, Mich. -- A lot has changed for Kasey Kahne since he won at Michigan International Speedway in June. That victory eight races ago was the 26-year-old NASCAR star's fourth of the season and left him in third place in the season standings, seemingly a shoe-in to run out the string and make it into the Chase for the Nextel Cup championship...
Donald tied with Woods in birdiefest (08/20/06)
MEDINAH, Ill. -- The PGA Championship has rarely looked so easy. With Tiger Woods atop the leaderboard, winning the final major of the year could still be as hard as ever. His final birdie Saturday came on the par-3 17th hole, a 12-foot putt that nearly spun out of the side of the cup. Woods was walking to the hole when he stopped, sighed when it dropped, then pointed his finger at the cup as if reminding his golf ball to behave...
With opener 13 days away, Redhawks still mystery team (08/20/06)
There are just under two weeks to go before the start of the Southeast Missouri State football season -- and watching the Redhawks' first scrimmage of fall camp Tuesday afternoon certainly whetted my appetite. Sure, I'll admit I can basically tell next to nothing about a team when it plays against itself. Either the offense or defense is generally going to look good, while the other unit will generally look bad. There usually is no in-between...
Many Susans are worth planting in flower gardens (08/20/06)
What gave Susan a black eye? Her central florets, that's what. Black-eyed Susan flowers are actually made up of many small florets, two kinds. The florets in the center of each flower -- the eye -- lack petals and are dark. Hence, the black eye. Florets around the outside edge of the eye each have one petal, large and orange yellow. These petals point outward around the black eye like a sunburst...
Parents rediscover 'bakfiets' for toddler transport (08/20/06)
THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- Jennifer van den Broeke tried toting her son and daughter around Amsterdam on her old bike with two child seats, but the weight buckled the wheels and the stand snapped.

Antarctica (08/20/06)
BROWN BLUFF, Antarctica -- Stepping carefully down the cruise ship's gangway, I wait for a break in the swelling waves to make my move. With a quick stride, I settle on to a small rubber boat. Within minutes, our small group of tourists bounces by floating chunks of strikingly blue ice and a napping seal. The boat lands on a rocky beach, and I swing my legs over the Zodiac to step on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula...
Survey says Americans love the beach (08/20/06)

Bridging history (08/20/06)
NORWICH, Vt. -- They are icons of the horse-and-buggy past, simple structures that helped a young nation expand its road system. Two hundred years after they began dotting the countryside, the country's covered bridges have one plank in the past and one in the present. Beloved as picturesque throwbacks, many remain vital transportation links in rural communities from Vermont to Oregon...
Welcome to Dumpsville, population: You (08/20/06)
SHE SAID: Dearest readers, We didn't want it to end this way. Really, it's us. Not you. Don't take this so hard. There'll be others, some day. Yes, it's true. We're breaking up with you. It turns out, Bob can't type a column while simultaneously making the 1.5-hour commute to St. Louis every day. And I'm not interesting enough on my own to fill this space...
