    NEW YORK Mar 12, 2005 — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants Jennifer Lopez to "Get Right" when it comes to fur. Lopez introduced her Sweetface collection during New York Fashion Week last month. "Please don't support Jennifer Lopez or her bloody business," according to a Web site that the animal rights group has devoted to the singer, actress and now fashion designer. "Many hot designers, including Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Todd Oldham, Marc Bouwer, and others have … created synthetic alternatives that are hip, humane, and easily available and don't turn animals into fashion victims."

    After being elected twice as a Republican to the position of county attorney in Anderson County, Kan., Fred Campbell decided following the Nov. 2 elections to drop his Republican Party affiliation in favor of the Libertarian Party, saying the GOP has abandoned the idea of minimal government. Campbell was re-elected in November with no opposition. He has been a Republican for years, primarily because he's "always been in favor of less government rather than more," he said. "I've always thought that the Republican Party was the major party that went along with that philosophy," Campbell explained. "But in the last...

    TACOMA, Wash. (Oct. 28) - A seriously wounded 8-year-old boy calmly described his father's deadly knife rampage during a call for help to 911. "My daddy killed me with a knife and I'm gone," the boy told a dispatcher. "Can you please send the Army men or the ambulance?" The soft-spoken child gave a wrong address and then hung up. But a second dispatcher called back, keeping him on the line while a frantic search was under way. On Wednesday, authorities released the remarkable tape of Anthony Sukto's calm courage during the Oct. 22 ordeal, and the frantic efforts to...

    NAGAOKA, Japan (Oct. 27) - A 2-year-old boy was rescued Wednesday after surviving for four days buried in a landslide from the powerful quake that ravaged northern Japan over the weekend. Rescuers also pulled Yuta Minagawa's mother, Takako Minagawa, 39, from the wreckage, but doctors later announced she had died. A daughter, 3-year-old Mayu, was still buried and her condition was uncertain. The family's white van was swept away in a wave of boulders and earth that pulverized the hillside road they were on when a 6.8-magnitude quake ripped across rural Niigata prefecture on Saturday, killing at least 31 people....

    ZAMBOANGA CITY — A Chinese-Filipino businesswoman kidnapped by suspected Abu Sayyaf members escaped after almost four months in captivity, the military said yesterday. Marine products trader Gertrudes Tan, 50, eluded her captors in a coastal village in Maimbung, Sulu last Monday night, said Lt. Gen. Roy Kyamko, chief of the Armed Forces’ Southern Command. Kyamko said Tan drifted into the sea using a small plastic jug as float until fishermen found her at about 2:30 a.m. the following day. The fishermen brought her to the Maimbung town proper where she took a passenger jeepney that brought her to the capital...

    Donna West studied the area of her Indiana map between her daughter's home in Bristol and some of her grandkids' town of Merrillville. "And Mishawaka sort of jumped out at me," says the 63-year-old former government worker now on disability. "I am part Cherokee, and so the name really appealed to me," Donna admits. "Have you ever said Mishawaka real quick three times? "Mishawaka, Mishawaka, Mishawaka. I love it." So for not much more reason than that, she moved to the Princess City from Pontiac, Ill., in 1997. She is glad she did. "I tried a few senior living places,...

    <p>In the global cataclysm of war and terrorism, the small actions of individuals may seem insignificant. But in fact, they are what matter most.</p> <p>My last column critiqued feminist male bashing and called for good will toward men. It stated, "the father who worked every day to make you safe and comfortable is not the enemy." An angry reader wrote to accuse me of being raised in a "white, middle-class, nuclear family." She dismissed me as coming from a privileged background that was out of touch with harsh reality.</p>

    It's all about a little baby whose life was saved even before he was born. The pre-born child's mother was very young – and single. She was a pregnant teenager. Of course, we know now that the conception was Divine. But very early in her pregnancy, only Mary knew the baby was of God. Joseph, her fiancé, at first thought she had become pregnant by another man. Joseph must have been devastated. I'm sure he was both furious and heart-broken at the evident betrayal by the woman he loved. He probably also felt like killing her, which would have been ...

    <p>ORANGE -- Gene Hunsberger was dying when he heard about the book.</p> <p>Paralyzed on his left side, barely able to speak, he heard the book was coming back through the work of his grandson.</p> <p>For the next three years, Evan Hunsberger, then a 13-year-old Boy Scout from Orange, worked on republishing a daily devotional called "Strength for Service to God and Country," the project that would make him an Eagle Scout, attract the attention of the Pentagon and become, in light of Sept. 11, more important than he ever dreamed.</p>
