    Locals in Hanover have been given a very specific command for when the US President comes to visit — better neither heard nor seen. When US President Barack Obama arrives in Hanover for a visit on Sunday April 24th, residents have been told very clearly what is expected of them: stay away from windows and do not wave. Local police issued advisory flyers out of security concerns for some 1,800 residents who live near the Congress Centrum and zoo area, where Obama will be meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel for the Hanover Messe, a major global trade fair for industrial technology....

    German investigators said Thursday they were examining whether a 15-year-old girl who stabbed a policeman in the neck was motivated by Islamic extremism. The teenager attacked the officer on February 27 during a routine check at Hanover train station, before being overpowered by another police officer. Investigators were examining if there could have been a "possible political or religious motivation" for the attack, and whether the girl had an "Islamist background" after it emerged she had recently traveled to Turkey, a Hanover prosecution spokesman, Thomas Klinge, told AFP. ...

    Potentially lethal bombings at two sites in Hanover, Germany were defused on Tuesday night, just days after Muslim terrorists carried out lethal coordinated attacks in Paris. The similar nature of targets selected in the attempted bombings Tuesday make it likely to have been an attempt by Islamists to repeat the carnage in Paris on Friday, in which 129 people were murdered. Shortly after the German national soccer stadium in Hanover was evacuated on Tuesday night, reports revealed the cause: an ambulance loaded with explosives was discovered parked outside. The discovery at the HDI Arena came just before an international friendly...

    A German newspaper is reporting that a soccer match in Hannover was canceled because an ambulance full of explosives was found out front following a bomb threat. There was no immediate confirmation of that report, though the Hannover chief of police was quoted by multiple sources as saying "there was a device intended to be detonated inside the stadium."

    Former governor Martin O'Malley's presidential campaign severed ties with the chair of his election effort in Virginia this week after the man was arrested on child pornography charges. Michael C. Teegarden, 51, faces two counts of felony possession of child pornography, charges brought by the Hanover County Sheriff's Office. Authorities said they got a tip that a computer at Teegarden's home in the suburbs north of Richmond was being used to trade illicit images online.

    Washington — An alliance of Asian American groups on Friday filed a federal complaint against HarvardUniversity, saying that school and other Ivy League institutions are using racial quotas to admit students other than high-scoring Asians. More than 60 Chinese, Indian, Korean and Pakistani groups came together for the complaint, which was filed with the civil rights offices at the Justice and Education departments. They are calling for an investigation and say these schools should stop using racial quotas or racial balancing in admission. "We are seeking equal treatment regardless of race," said Chunyan Li, a professor and civil rights activist,...
  • Camera Captures Bald Eagle Nest

    To celebrate the state's thriving bald eagle population, the Pennsylvania Game Commission installed a live nest-cam late last year near Hanover. For those not watching, a pair of eagles worked together for weeks constructing the nest, taking breaks to swoop down on potential food, all in preparation for the arrival of their eggs. The first egg appeared on February 14, followed by a second three days later. After a month or so of incubation, the eggs are expected to hatch around March 21. All of the action can be viewed on the live-cam. One of the more eye-catching frames from...

    A group of disgruntled students at Dartmouth College sent an 8-page protest letter to leaders of the Ivy League institution Monday calling for reparations for what they claim is the school’s oppressive and racist atmosphere – and threatened “physical action” if their demands are not met. The list of demands, written by “concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students,” include: • Racial enrollment quotas for Black and Latino students to “at least 10 percent each” • “Ensure that 47 percent of post-doctoral students are people of color” • “Ban the use of ‘illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, wetback’...

    To borrow a line from Dennis Green, they are who we thought they were. From his hospital bed, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has acknowledged his role in planting the explosives near the marathon finish line on April 15, the officials said. The first successful large-scale bombing in the post-Sept. 11, 2001, era, the Boston attack killed three people and wounded more than 250 others.The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation, said Dzhokhar and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed by police as the two attempted to avoid capture, do not appear to have been...

    HANOVER, VA –The FBI raided a Hanover County home in search of child porn, only to discover they'd raided the wrong house. Federal investigators targeted the Mechanicsville home after discovering child porn was being downloaded to computers using the homeowner's internet service, according to federal court documents. But after raiding the home in November and subsequently launching a full investigation, court documents show agents discovered the computers with the downloaded child porn didn't belong to the couple, but a neighbor. David Edward Sleezer, of J David Lane, was arrested and charged with five counts of receiving and distributing child porn....

    Bernard L. Madoff said he never thought the collapse of his Ponzi scheme would cause the sort of destruction that has befallen his family. In his first interview for publication since his arrest in December 2008, Mr. Madoff — looking noticeably thinner and rumpled in khaki prison garb — maintained that family members knew nothing about his crimes. But during a private two-hour interview in a visitor room here on Tuesday, and in earlier e-mail exchanges, he asserted that unidentified banks and hedge funds were somehow “complicit” in his elaborate fraud, an about-face from earlier claims that he was the...

    June 28, 2008, was a defining moment in my life. It was the day I shot and killed a man in the defense of my life and the lives of others. We all have defining moments. They might not be as tragic as taking another man's life, but they are events that change the way we look at things -- or even, perhaps, how we live our lives. Before that muggy Saturday evening in June, I would have said my defining moments were many: graduating from high school; enlisting in the Army; getting married; having children; getting run over by...

    The appearance of nuclear weapons materials on the black market is a growing global concern, and it is crucial that the United States reinforce its team of nuclear forensics experts and modernize its forensics tools to prepare for or respond to a possible nuclear terrorist attack. Large quantities of nuclear materials are inadequately secured in several countries, including Russia and Pakistan. Since 1993, there have been more than 1,300 incidents of illicit trafficking of nuclear materials, including plutonium and highly enriched uranium, both of which can be used to develop an atomic bomb. And these are only the incidents we...

    Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani cut in half the office staff of his estranged wife, Donna Hanover, yesterday as police officials announced separately that they had reassigned three members of Ms. Hanover's security detail to other jobs. Mr. Giuliani's actions made it clear that he would continue to use the powers of his office to sever his wife from her public role as the city's first lady and to isolate her as much as possible during his final months in office. A police official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said three police detectives assigned to Ms. Hanover to make...

    DURHAM, N.C.—One of three Duke University lacrosse players charged with rape wants the case resolved in time for the next school year, his lawyer said in court yesterday. But the judge warned he will not fast-track the proceedings. The case "is not going to jump ahead of the line and be handled any differently," Superior Court Judge Ronald L. Stephens said at a hearing for sophomore Reade Seligmann. After the brief hearing, District Attorney Mike Nifong said he does not expect any trial to begin before next year.

    Americans are the thinnest-skinned creatures on the planet. Seems everything offends someone around here these days, and the reactions of "the offended" sometimes make me wonder if our nation has simply lost all of its collective common sense. First, the National Collegiate Athletic Association, better known as the NCAA, has decreed that every college and university with an Indian-based mascot will not be allowed to host post-season events since such use is degrading toward native Americans. This ban includes Florida State University. The fact the Seminole Tribe of Florida's governing council unanimously approved in mid-June a resolution in total support...

I hope it's the last letter like that. As explained below, this certainly will be the last reply from me on this topic.

For this, thousands of Americans have applauded his work in maintaining rescue efforts and securing assistance for the families of those who died in the World Trade Center. The former mayor, who has been involved in a highly publicized divorce battle, found himself...
