Seattle Weekly: News: Did they get their man? by Rick Anderson
JUDY RIDGWAY is one of the few people left who thinks her husband isn't
responsible for the 49 Green
River murders. Judy, 57, and Gary Ridgway, who observed his third month and 53rd birthday in King County Jail last week, had what she calls a happy 17-year marriage. "He was the best thing that ever happened to me," she said the other day.
But on Friday, Nov. 30, 2001, King County Sheriff Dave Reichert announced that authorities had arrested "the" Green River killer.
Nick Beams reviews Keith Windschuttle's The Fabrication of Aboriginal History An assault on historical truth Part 1
This connection between the writing of history and contemporary social problems is illustrated by the so-called "History Wars" that have been fought out in Australia during the past decade. They have now reached a new peak of intensity with the recent publication of The Fabrication of Aboriginal History
by Keith Windschuttle.
While the form of the increasingly heated debate is a conflict over the nature and significance of the impact of British colonialism on Australia's indigenous population, its content is about contemporary society.

Spring is a season of rebirth, a time of newness of life and fresh beginnings across the countryside. The climbing sun and the warm valley winds push back the snows in the high mountain country revealing a multitude of colorful blooming wild flowers, lush green meadows, crystal blue lakes and swift running streams.
Dogwood fills the woodlands and landscape with cheery white flowers; willow, alder, oak and a multitude of other deciduous trees burst into a leafy green canopy. Sounds of the forest return with the Stellar Jay's chatter, the kakking call of the northern goshawk and the melodies of songbirds.

Students who enjoy the outdoors might find their niche at the Outing Centre.
The center, located behind the Student Recreation Center, offers activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, spelunking, mountain hiking and backpacking.
These activities aren't only for the experienced outdoorsmen, however.
"These trips are for everyone," said Karen Rosenbloom, a senior art education major. "Whether they have gone before or not, experienced or inexperienced, we try to keep them at a moderate level," she said.
If someone experienced participates in one of the center's activities, the center will try to accommodate him or her.
The young boy, with his belly full of pancakes, walked down the back steps of the house and across the yard to the path to begin his excursion. It was mid summer in Greenbrier County and he was bathed in the warmth of the sun which presented itself with low humidity. All seemed right with the world, and he looked at the hills in the distance and was glad that he had been born there to see such sights and have such beauty surrounding him.
Work was something, he wasn't sure what, but it had no place in his life now. This was the time for being a boy, for growing and playing basketball, making gravel shooters, BB guns and riding his bike.

Ninety Five And Still Going Strong (from Borehamwood Times)
This month the 1st Elstree Scouts celebrate their 95th anniversary, making them one of the oldest scout troops in the world.
The troop was formed after war hero Lord Baden-Powell attended a house party at the home of Arthur Pearson, who published the book Scouting for Boys.
At the meeting Baden-Powell met Percy Everett, Pearson's literary editor, who lived in Elstree.
The men discussed launching a new youth organisation - the Boy Scouts, and Baden-Powell invited Everett to the first ever scout camp, held on Brownsea Island.
RETURN TO MOAB, 2039 AD REDUX
I don't know what made me do it. Some kind of grim, masochistic satisfaction,
I suppose. To prove to myself, at least, that it was as bad and weird
and crazy as I'd feared. That I hadn't been a lifelong cynic for no
damn reason at all. Now I know. Now I know that everything we'd feared
was here. And ahead of schedule.
I moved away from the United States in 2006 and relocated on a small
island chain in the South Pacific called Funafuti. I was a fool to go
there, however, and had already been warned. Global warming and rising
sea levels jeopardized the island atoll as far back as 1999.

The programs "are geared for individuals and families who seek fun, adventure and education, along with the usual camping, fishing and boating," according to a news release.
It said the three-day events will feature "fun programs, tours, hikes and games presented by park rangers and professional interpreters."

The first event is set for May 30 to June 1 at Santa Rosa Lake State Park.
