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.

Spending Time With the Democratic Women's Club
By Norma Jean Fazenbaker
During the last week in October, I spent three days in Ocean City with the United Democratic Women's Club at their convention for all the Maryland Districts. It is a lot of fun being with women who feel the same way about the Democratic party. We are all hoping that we can get our party members riled up for the next two elections so we can take back our state and our country. I am asking all of my readers who are good Democrats to make sure that you are registered and that you vote.
Hiker disoriented by storm
Todd Pollert returned to the base camp in the Rocky Peak area Tuesday morning. He was about 10 minutes ahead of a Routt County Search and Rescue crew sent to find him, said Search and Rescue member Darrel Levingston.
Pollert left about 11 a.m. Monday for what he intended to be an hour-and-a-half hike on the west side of Rocky Peak. When he had not returned to his base camp, on the east side of Rocky Peak, by about 7 p.m., his camping partner called his wife, who then called the Routt County Search and Rescue, Levingston said.
Pollert was well prepared to spend the night in the cold, Levingston said.

Bhutan PM holding talks with ultras
Kokrajhar (Assam), Nov 05: Bhutanese Prime Minister
Lyonpo Jigme Yozer Thinley is camping at the Kalikhola area
of Bhutan near the Assam border holding talks with militant outfits in the area, official sources said here today.
Thinley is trying to persuade leaders of the Ulfa, NDFB and Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (KLO) to close their camps in that country, the sources said.
Bhutan's National Assembly had adopted a resolution in its 80th session urging the need for dialogue to convince the
militants to leave the Kingdom and retreat.
Church to judge: Recuse yourself
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington wants the judge hearing a case about alleged sexual abuse in the diocese to recuse himself because he is friends with a consultant in the case and because, as a high school student, he went on a camping trip with one of the accused priests.
Judge Joseph "Jay" Bamberger, however, refused Thursday to step down from the class-action suit, arguing that the diocese was simply trying to shop for a more favorable forum in which to defend itself from the litigation.
The diocese plans to appeal Bamberger's decision to Kentucky Supreme Court Chief Justice Joseph Lambert.
McPherson Sentinel: News Column
A bright orange backpack, an occasionally scruffy beard and assorted T-shirts all identify the newest adventurer and teacher to Walk Across America.
Don Vermilyea, a native of West Virginia, began his walk on Feb. 2, 2002, in Tucson, Ariz.
He has two missions. One is to visit every Church of the Brethren that invites him, and the second, which he finds harder and harder, is to reach out to people and teach them of the gospels and Jesus.
Vermilyea has visited one-fifth of the United States so far, and in every state he walks through, he aspires to "plant a seed" and share God's love with every one who will listen.

REBEL TONIC TOADS
OK, it's in November, so we'll be surfing on
frozen chunks of ice, but surfing is surfing in
San Diego-and camp is camp, so it ought to
be totally sick.
So we get there, and it's all good, but it turns
out we're thinkin' more about surfing than
camping. I mean, the waves are what we're
here for, and camping is like, you know, just
for sleeping. Like, how tough can it be? We're
all waxin' our boards on the beach, and then
they sorta dump these bags of tents and stuff
in front of us and say, "Dudes, go set up your
