Biotech firm blames farmers, act of God for rice contamination (11/23/06)
Bayer CropScience says rice farmers and an "act of God" are to blame for the contamination of local rice crops with an unapproved genetically modified strain -- contamination that led to class action lawsuits filed in federal court in Missouri.

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The United Nations said Wednesday that 3,709 Iraqi civilians were killed in October, the highest monthly toll since the March 2003 U.S. invasion and another sign of the severity of Iraq's sectarian bloodbath.

Woman, 92, shot by officers returning fire (11/23/06)
ATLANTA -- Police say officers did everything right after a shootout Tuesday with a 92-year-old woman. The woman, Kathryn Johnston, was the only resident in the house at the time and had lived there about 17 years, assistant chief Alan Dreher said.

WASHINGTON -- Soon to be in charge of Congress, Democrats are looking to chip away at billions of dollars in payments to the health insurance companies that run Medicare's managed care programs.

A better season (11/23/06)
Even without a sense of urgency, the 2006 season was one of resurgence. Following a 2005 season when the six local football programs were a combined 20-40 with no appearances in the state playoffs, expectations for 2006 weren't much. The losing and the absence from the playoffs was a good bet to continue...

Forgotten fullbacks (11/23/06)
NEW YORK -- John Riggins was the type of player kids loved emulating. He was a bruising runner with a mean streak and big shoulder pads who plowed through defenders and dragged them along for the ride -- all the way to the Hall of Fame. But that was back in a long-lost era when fullbacks were ball-carrying bulls and an integral part of a team's game plan. Today, being a fullback just doesn't have that attractiveness...

As we celebrate Thanksgiving with our families, most of us will probably stuff ourselves full of turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie.

Doing what's in your nature (11/23/06)
Nov. 23, 2006 Dear Adams family, Here's hoping everyone made it home for Thanksgiving. Looking around your Thanksgiving table nearly 20 years ago, I'd never seen such a big family, no doubt quadrupled by now. My own family will converge on Cape Girardeau from Ohio and Mississippi today, the first time in a long while we're in one place at the same time. Usually the nephew or one of the nieces is off on an adventure during breaks, or my brother's playing music somewhere...

What next? No math teaching? (11/23/06)
To the editor: The paper brought the disturbing news on Nov. 21 that Washington University has received a grant of $156 million to continue work on the sequencing of the human genome. Obviously, this work has a far greater potential to lead to human cloning than stem-cell research has. This is a very slippery slope...
Toybox is a sharing experience (11/23/06)
To the editor: 1991 was the first of 13 Christmas seasons I spent as a single parent of two girls. At my Community Counseling Center session I was paired up with a young girl who had just lost her job, was losing her home and had three young children and no family to help her. I had been feeling sorry for myself until she made me realize I was blessed with a decent job, a home and the support of a loving family. I never forgot her...
