Program letting homeless kids stay at the same school through moves provides stability in chaotic situation
When Jodie lost her job at a medical facility last year, she knew hard times were ahead. She sold her car to come up with rent money for a while, but when that money was gone she was left homeless, along with her 9-year-old son, Peyton, and 15-year-old niece, Stephanny.
Left with the tasks of finding a new job and a safe place to live, Jodie (who didn''t want her last name used) found that there was at least one thing she could count on: school for her son and niece.

After three different trials, the testimony of several witnesses, and numerous objections, speeches, commands from the judge - plus a lunch break - District Court Judge Frank Rothschild Wednesday found Lloyd "Ikaika" Pratt guilty of two counts of contempt of court and two counts of state camping violations.
Pratt, who prefers to be called by his Hawaiian name, "Ikaika," is scheduled to be sentenced on January 14. The sentences imposed for the four petty misdemeanor charges can be up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine for each charge.
Enjoy the slower pace of Tonto Basin
Located 35 miles south of Payson, the lake is popular among anglers who turn out in droves to try their luck at catching crappie, channel and flathead catfish and largemouth and smallmouth bass. Roosevelt also attracts outdoor enthusiasts eager for a turn at water skiing, boating, swimming, jet skiing and windsurfing.
At high water, the lake has more than 19,000 surface acres with 112 miles of shoreline measuring 25 miles long and two miles wide.
The lake is 349 feet deep at the dam and contains up to 543 billion gallons of water when full.
Due to the state's drought, the lake level had plunged to about 20 percent in recent years.

Canton Daily Ledger: Fulton County Guide
Well, we may not find too many truly "wild" places but there are a few places where we can escape. In this piece we will highlight some camping areas. In addition there are plenty of other places in the county that offer a retreat. And with the slight possibility that some of our public areas could close, some of the places we speak of can become even more precious.
Let's begin with the nearest to Canton residents: Canton Lake. The lake campground is becoming a popular once again. Numerous weekends have found it pretty full. Fishing in the lake is indeed improving and this could be one of the determining factors to the rise in campers.
Harrisburg Daily Register: Local News
HARRISBURG - The Discovery Expedition of St. Charles, Mo., brought perhaps the biggest crowd in recent years to Old Shawneetown.
Gallatin County Historical Society President Ron Wilson said there were more than 3,000 people counted by an electronic eye when they boarded the Army Corps of Engineers museum barge.
That number did not include the Gallatin County School kids who came to the barge Friday.
"It was great. It couldn''t have been better," Wilson said.
The timing of the visit was off, with the boats arriving about four hours earlier than planned.

for white-tail deer hogs turkey east texas
You can set your own rules, within legal bounds, for
harvesting deer size and quantity, and within the rules
of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Each person
can hunt and harvest the legal number of deer allowed in that county under state and
federal rules. You need to check current regulations
at the time you are hunting for game. Currently the buck limit is one buck in most if not all of these
counties. Rumor has it that this will be changed
by the time hunting season arrives for 1999. It is
possible we may have doe permits available on some
of the leases for this coming year.

Northern Star Online | Campus
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.

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.

Hawaii Tribune-Herald: News
An appeals court has overturned the trespassing conviction of a homeless man who camped regularly near the "Pine Trees" surfing beach in Kona.
In an opinion issued last week, the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals said District Judge Joseph P. Florendo Jr. was wrong to require Michael J. Kelly to prove he was camping on public lands rather than to make the prosecution prove he wasn't.
Kelly was charged with two misdemeanor counts of second - degree criminal trespass after police cited him Feb. 7 and March 8, 2002.

So we get there, and it's all good, but it turns

Jacques Cousteau once said The best way to observe fish is to become a fish. The French friend of the sea wasn't advocating radical gill implantation and sewing on scales he was simply recommending that we all strap on a mask and fins and get Zen. Opening your eyes in the tropical sea will vividly and fundamentally alter your perspective on life.

Straight Through the Night: 24-Hour Racing
It's 1 a.m. I'm standing next to my bike with my eyes closed, just trying to relax. When I open them, I notice a headlamp weaving its way toward me through the trees, along the trail to where I'm standing. And I'm still in the way. As I drag myself and my bike a little farther off the trail, I notice an uncomfortable dampness on my feet.
I think I just puked on my shoes.
"Great night, isn't it?" a voice calls out to me from the darkness. "Is everything all right?"
"You bet," I reply, as cheerfully as I can muster between gulps of water from my CamelBak. It is a beautiful night.
