JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri Supreme Court rejected Tuesday an attempt by a St. Louis suburb to use eminent domain to condemn buildings and turn them over for private development.

The city then asked for redevelopment plans...
FDA report urges more oversight of body parts industry (06/13/07)
WASHINGTON -- A federal agency's review of the billion-dollar body parts industry calls for more inspections, but experts in the field say it ignores the problems that led to two recent scares involving human tissue destined for transplant.

WASHINGTON -- Congress moved Tuesday to set aside $100 million to create a Justice Department unit devoted to investigating unsolved murders from the civil rights era.

Bush pleads with GOP for immigration support (06/13/07)
WASHINGTON -- His party divided and his polls sagging, President Bush prodded rebellious Senate Republicans Tuesday to help resurrect legislation that could provide eventual citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants.

Once-dominant iceberg lettuce gets increasingly chilly reception (06/13/07)
LOS ANGELES -- Iceberg is your father's lettuce: a big, round ball wrapped in cellophane and ready to be torn apart to top a burger or smothered under salad dressing.

Oakmont features longest par-3 hole (06/13/07)
OAKMONT, Pa. -- Golfers would do well to stock up before reaching No. 8 at this week's U.S. Open. Grab some water, a few bananas, maybe an energy bar. Better yet, hire a Sherpa. No. 8 at Oakmont Country Club is a 288-yard par 3 and, no, that's not a misprint. It's the longest par 3 in major championship history, and it's going to give the Open field quite a test -- not to mention a workout...
Tar Heels eager to make up for last year's mistakes (06/13/07)
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- When Tim Federowicz watches replays of the error that cost North Carolina last year's College World Series championship, he laughs. Maybe that's because he knows the Tar Heels are in position to make up for it. "We get a second chance," Federowicz said Tuesday...

A quarter-century later, Brehaut makes the Open (06/13/07)
OAKMONT, Pa. -- Jeff Brehaut first tried to qualify for the U.S. Open at 18, and he figured it was only a matter of time. Just not this much time. He has lost track of the trips to local and sectional qualifying during a career that stretches over two decades and has taken him to 385 tournaments on the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour, probably a hundred more on the mini-tours. His last victory was five years ago when he was the medalist at Q-school...

Woods wants another title before becoming a dad (06/13/07)
OAKMONT, Pa. -- The 2 a.m. feedings. The sleepless nights. Those first tiny baby steps and the first mumblings of "Da-da."

Spurs push Cavs to brink (06/13/07)
CLEVELAND -- Rude and ruthless, the San Antonio Spurs ruined Cleveland's 37-year wait to host the NBA finals. Unwelcome guests, they defied the young King and may soon take home another crown of their own.

This cheddar is better (06/13/07)
A few years ago thieves raided the English farm of James Montgomery, an award-winning cheese maker who supplies Harrods, and took off with six tons of his Cheddar. The robbers evidently knew what they were doing. They pilfered only the finest aged cheese, ignoring wheels of lesser quality, and timed their heist just days before the annual British Cheese Awards, thereby depriving Montgomery, a frequent gold medal winner at that event, of the opportunity to win again...
Sweet ideas for summertime treats (06/13/07)
Summertime is the time to enjoy a variety of foods: cool, fruity, fresh and, of course, desserts. Yes, desserts are a welcome treat anytime throughout the year.
