    Chael Sonnen took a page out of Team Quest teammate Matt Lindland’s book and threw his name in the hat for local politics. “I have officially announced my candidacy for District 37 in Oregon for the House of Representatives,” Sonnen told MMAWeekly.com. Running as a Republican, the preliminary election for the seat takes place in May and the general election in November. “(The position is) currently held by a Republican, and he’s vacating the seat to run for the U.S. Fifth Congressional District,” said Sonnen. “I was recruited by the party to fill his seat, but there hasn’t been any...

    I write this on the morning of the end of the once-mighty General Motors. By high noon, the President of the United States will have made it official: General Motors, as we know it, has been totaled. As I sit here in GM's birthplace, Flint, Michigan, I am surrounded by friends and family who are filled with anxiety about what will happen to them and to the town. Forty percent of the homes and businesses in the city have been abandoned. Imagine what it would be like if you lived in a city where almost every other house is empty....

    Their Toyota Indy 400 ended in a crash Sunday, but the action between Danica Patrick and Jaques Lazier didn't end on the track. Afterward, fingers were pointing and poking ... and maybe even punching. And before this one's over, IndyCar promises to have a hand in it. Patrick, who spent most of the day hovering near the back of the top 10, saw her rookie-of-the-year season end in a jarring crash with Lazier that brought out the fourth and final caution flag just 16 laps from the end of the 200-lap event.

    Gymnastics is a sport of strength and flexibility. It’s also a sport that's only offered to girls in area high schools. However, a young man from Stevens Point is fighting to change that. The WIAA has rules in place that prohibit boys and girls from competing on the same team. One aspiring gymnast in our area is fighting to become an exception to that rule. SPASH junior Keith Bukowski has been studying gymnastics for five years. His school doesn't have a boy’s gymnastics team, so he practices with the girl’s gymnastics team every day, but when they head to meets...

On the other side, President Bush has garnered support from figures in country, Christian and pop music, including Brooks & Dunn, Michael W. Smith, Travis Tritt, Jessica Simpson, Sara Evans and, somewhat surrealistically, Kid Rock. Yet even if...

    CRI PERSPECTIVE CP0103 EVIDENCE FOR CREATION? The idea that God created the world and life is often thought to have been disproved by evolutionary theory. Is there any scientific evidence for creation? The truth is that the scientific evidence overwhelmingly supports creation. Let me attempt to point out just some of this evidence here. First, the scientific community is now almost unanimous in affirming that the universe had a beginning. This is usually referred to in scientific terms as “The Big Bang Theory.” Of course, this implies that someone or something brought the universe into existence. Secondly, the universe...

    From Andy Rooney: Most of the reporting from Iraq is about death and destruction. We don't learn much about what our soldiers in Iraq are thinking or doing. There's no Ernie Pyle to tell us, and, if there were, the military would make it difficult or impossible for him to let us know. It would be interesting to have a reporter ask a group of our soldiers in Iraq to answer five questions and see the results: 1. Do you think your country did the right thing sending you into Iraq? 2. Are you doing what America set out to...

    The war in Iraq and our former top U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, David Kay, have been hot topics in the news for months now. There have been opinions regarding the U.S. participation in the war, and questions on whether or not we had the right to be there. We have grieved with our neighbors over their fallen loved ones. We have shared the joy of the Iraqi-American community with the fall of Saddam Hussein, and shared their despair and grief over the deaths of the friends and relatives they left behind. Throughout everything, I think I can say that...

    CLEVELAND - High school basketball star LeBron James was ruled ineligible to play for the rest of the season because he accepted free clothes. The decision Friday by the Ohio High School Athletic Association comes four days after James, a senior at St. Vincent-St. Mary, was cleared for accepting a $50,000 sport utility vehicle as a gift from his mother. Last Saturday, James was given two retro sports jerseys from a clothing store.

    As state senators search for an income tax package that could command a majority vote, many of those opposed to the concept continue to assert that a tax on general income is unconstitutional in Tennessee. The last five state attorneys general have signed opinions defending the constitutionality of such a tax. The present attorney general, Paul Summers, issued the most detailed of these opinions two years ago. And he has several times appeared before legislative committees and met with legislators in private settings to reaffirm his position and answer questions. Yet, for the nearly three years in which the current...
