    A federal judge handed a landmark victory to Kane County and the state of Utah on Wednesday in a years-long dispute with the federal government over whether some rural routes should remain in use as roads, or if they should be closed to the public. In two decisions, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups found he had jurisdiction to hear Kane County's claim, gave parameters for "reasonable" right-of-way widths on some routes and determined that 12 of 15 routes in dispute were roads and therefore accessible by the public. The distinction hinged on an 1866 law through which Congress sought to...

    ** EXCERPT ** With a large charitable donation in hand, Indonesian businessman Mochtar Riady flew to Little Rock to dine with first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton at a 1993 gala honoring her as an "Arkansan of the Year" at a time his company, a multibillion dollar banking conglomerate, was seeking an end to a 30-year trade embargo with Vietnam. Five days after the March 4, 1993, dinner at the Excelsior Hotel, Mr. Riady took the embargo question directly to President Clinton, saying in a four-page letter that its demise would bring political reforms in that communist country. By that time,...

    Scandals: Hillary Clinton calls President Bush's talks with the Saudis about increasing oil output "pathetic." But it's not as pathetic as her co-president husband locking up billions of tons of clean coal in exchange for political contributions.As Bush wrapped up his Middle East trip, Sen. Clinton commented: "President Bush is over in the Gulf now begging the Saudis and others to drop the price of oil. How pathetic." A large part of America's energy dependence on foreign sources can be traced to Sept. 18, 1996, when President Bill Clinton stood on the edge of the Grand Canyon on the Arizona...

    Beijing, China (AHN) - China confirmed Tuesday that it had tested anti-satellite weapon. However, it added that the nation does not have intentions of an arms race in space. Beijing said it had officially told the governments of the U.S., and Japan about the missile test. The Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said China was interested only in "peaceful development of outer space." The satellite intercept test is said to be the first of its kind in well over 20 years and there are concerns that it may give rise to a space arms race. An article in the American...
  • Foreign involvement is nothing new [COSCO Chinese gov't co runs terminals]

    Most terminal operators at U.S. ports are foreign companies and some are owned in part by foreign governments. APL, which manages terminals in Oakland, Los Angeles, Seattle and Alaska, is owned by the NOL Group, which is majority owned by the Singapore government. The Chinese government owns part of a company that operates a terminal at the Port of Long Beach. That company, Cosco Container Lines, a division of China Cosco, caused a stir similar to the current one back in 1998. Cosco ships had been calling on the Port of Long Beach for many years, using a public terminal....

    It resembles a giant bamboo shoot, can carry people more than a kilometre skyward in less than 40 seconds, and yesterday it was officially declared the world's tallest building. The 508 metre tall building in Taipei's Hsinyi district is 56 metres taller than the previous record holder, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. The opening of Taipei 101 - a reference to the number of floors - was attended by local dignitaries keen to bask in the glory of one of Asia's most ambitious engineering projects ever. As an opera company entertained the crowd, the world's fastest passenger lifts whisked...

    There are times when Hillary Clinton must wish that her husband were dead. Don't get me wrong. I want Bill Clinton to live a long and scandal-filled life. I have no plans to hurl an ashtray at the former beach-boy president. In fact, I would take a bullet for Bill Clinton if only to protect my income as a reporter. However, if Hillary wants to win the White House, she could make it a cakewalk if Bill were pushing up daises. Imagine Hillary running for president if Bill were suddenly to die. The former first lady would be the object...

    CLARKE WITNESSED FIRST-HAND THE CLINTONS' UTTER FAILURE TO FIGHT TERRORISM "If Clarke's plan had been implemented, [i.e., if clinton had responded to the bombing of the USS Cole, a clear act of war, militarily instead of telephonically!] al Qaeda's infrastructure would have been demolished and bin Laden might well have been killed. Sept. 11, 2001 might have been just another sunny day" [So the real question that requires answering is this: Why did this legacy-obsessed president miss a golden opportunity to secure his legacy for all time by wiping out terrorism, then in its incipient stage and stoppable?

Clinton, still wildly popular with Democrats, attended, and Barbra was starry-eyed, protective and affectionate with him.</p>
