Since 1994, the Heinz Awards have been presented annually to deserving recipients by the Heinz Family Foundation of Pittsburgh. This year, Drell was selected as one of five recipients, who work...

    PITTSBURGH - Chris Heinz, the stepson of U.S. Sen. John Kerry who was widely rumored to be considering a run for Congress, said Monday that he won't seek office in 2006. The son of the late Sen. John Heinz III had stumped for Kerry during his unsuccessful presidential bid last year, sparking rumors that Heinz would follow that with his own campaign against U.S. Rep. Melissa Hart. Heinz, 32, is the youngest of John and Teresa Heinz Kerry's three children. "I'm definitely not doing it in 2006. I've thought about it in my life, but it's just not right at...

    It looks like Teresa Heinz Kerry is rubbing off on her husband. And on Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. For the Republican Party, this is a good thing. You'll recall that last month, Heinz Kerry put on her shiniest tinfoil hat and blamed the Democrats' loss in November on rigged voting machines. As reported in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, she openly questioned the election results and fixated on areas of the country where optical scanners were used to record votes. "Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States," Heinz Kerry intoned, and it is "very easy to...

    Teresa Heinz Kerry this week challenged about 250 doctors and scientists to help Americans "connect the dots" between environmental pollution and rising cancer rates. Her remarks in an opening address for a conference on health and the environment included a barbed reference to "the belligerent indifference of our leaders in Washington toward environmental health issues." She urged the group to continue studying the causes of drastically increased rates of breast and prostate cancers and childhood leukemia. Heinz Kerry appeared calm and comfortable even though her speech at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center-Shadyside was interrupted several times and finally cut...

    Executors of the estate of the late Sen. John Heinz have withdrawn their appeal of a judge's ruling that opens the will to public inspection. Common Pleas Judge Frank J. Lucchino, in an order this month, granted petitions filed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Tribune-Review Publishing Co. to modify an order that sealed the documents more than a decade ago. The estate documents, by court order without a public hearing, were impounded in Orphans' Court on April 5, 1991, a day after Heinz and six others were killed in a midair collision over suburban Philadelphia.

John Heinz III, but others will remain sealed to protect the privacy and security of his widow, Teresa Heinz Kerry, and her family, a judge ruled. Attorneys for the Heinz estate had fought the efforts of two newspapers – the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette – to unseal the estate documents. The newspapers argued the records could shed light on Heinz Kerry's charitable activities and whether she used some of her inheritance to help the White...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lead left in paint, water, soil and elsewhere may not only be affecting children's intelligence but may cause a significant proportion of violent crime, a U.S. researcher argued Friday. He said the U.S. government needs to do more to lower lead levels in the environment and parents need to think more about where their children may be getting exposed to lead. "When environmental lead finds its way into the developing brain, it disturbs neural mechanisms responsible for regulation of impulse. That can lead to antisocial and criminal behavior," said Dr. Herbert Needleman, a professor of psychiatry and...

Soros is the most prominent drug legalizer in the world but campaigned to get Bush out of office mainly because of the Iraq war issue. Five television stations or networks, including C-SPAN, were there to record or cover the event.

The commercial features a guinea pig in a cage drinking ketchup instead of water and finishes with the slogan "You can't eat without it". The RSPCA says it sends out the wrong message to pet owners because water is an essential part of the animals' diet. Heinz insisted the advert was a joke meant to imply that everything tastes better with its tomato ketchup. The advert appears during commercial breaks for Emmerdale, as part of Heinz's sponsorship of the ITV1 soap. A...

This is especially true if people are relying on anti-depressants that may lead to suicide as a result of improper nutrition. (I, personally, would check with a doctor before changing my medication, but I...

    PITTSBURGH -- Teresa Heinz Kerry called attacks on her husband's foreign policy views "Neanderthal" while meeting with current and former Republicans who said they plan to vote for Sen. John Kerry. "The perpetration of certain myths that diplomacy and alliances are a sign of weakness is Neanderthal," Heinz Kerry said at the Kerry-Edwards presidential campaign headquarters in Pittsburgh. "I never heard of teaching a child to make enemies so they can get along in the playground." Heinz Kerry spoke after listening to six people -- including business owners, a retired Air Force general and Pennsylvania mayors -- talk about their...

    Subject: Your Heinz bottles don't lie! Your Heinz bottles don't lie! Check your Heinz bottles. I checked and my bottle of Heinz catsup says "Product of Canada" Guess I'll be checking out all the Heinz products at the store! I happened to look at the label of a jar of Heinz sandwich slice pickles. Yep...."Made in Mexico." Check some of your Heinz products. Sen. John Kerry keeps talking about U.S. corporations leaving this country and setting up shop in foreign countries, taking thousands of jobs with them. He is right,because that has happened. However, he is trying to blame it...

    After enlisting in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, Heinz served on active duty from June to December 1963 at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. For the remainder of his enlistment, he served with the 911th Troop Carrier Group based at the Greater Pittsburgh Airport. As an Airman Third Class, he received a U.S. Department of Defense citation for suggestions to improve the management of parts and supplies, saving the Air Force $400,000 annually. With the rank of staff sergeant, he received an honorable discharge from the Air Force Reserves in 1969.

    In less than a week we will finally be spared the coma-inducing drone of John Kerry. His interminable lies will cease to dirty the airways, his false posturing will drop from the scene. No more fake hunting vignettes. No more windsurfing. No more stage shots of the elitist forcing down old Chex Mix and the contents of a bottle of Miller Genuine Draft. His followers will no longer rob and trash the campaign headquarters of his opponents. His chance to commit voter fraud - Democratic thugs and henchmen registering the dead and suing to overturn the choice of legal voters...

    Why have we not heard anything about Sen. John Kerry’s former wife, the mother of his daughters? What can you tell us about her? When divorced, remarried, etc.? - P.S., Lebanon You probably haven’t heard anything about her because she’s an exceedingly private person. Kerry married the former Julia Thorne, a Philadelphia heiress, in 1970 in Bay Shore, N.Y. They honeymooned in Jamaica. As you note, they had two daughters, Alexandra in 1973 and Vanessa in 1976. The couple separated in 1982 at a time when Thorne was battling a deep depression and contemplating suicide. "After 14 years as a...

    Democrats, ACORN, and Voter Fraud Think I was exaggerating about voter fraud perpetrated by the Dummycrats and their socialist and communist minions? I went into it here, here, and here. In addition, try the following articles on for size. Some are a re-hash of what we already know. Others have new info. All point to voter intimidation and harassment plus possibly also hate-crimes, as defined by the left. (Hey, they started it!) From the Philadelphia area, a paper reports on the actions of ACORN, a commie group and one other that purposely held registration forms to flood the election supervisor?s...

    Entertainment Tonight | 10/20/2004 | gobucks2002
    Was watching Entertainment Tonight (hey, it was on after the football game) and there was a story about a PBS documentary coming up about the First Ladies. The interesting part is that they showed a quick clip of Teresa, and how her first marriage ended when her husband, Sen. Heinz, was killed in a plane crash in 1990. Then the announcer said that she met her husband, Sen. Kerry, at an Earth Day rally. The rally they showed Sen. Kerry speaking at had a HUGE banner that said "Earth Day 1990." Perhaps that was just a poor use of file...
