  • Fatal stabbing of girl, 8, prompts manhunt in California

    California police are hunting for a man after a 8-year-old girl was attacked inside her home Saturday and later died. The Calaveras County Sheriff's office said that the man was considered armed and dangerous, and authorities are warning residents in the Northern California town of Valley Springs to lock their doors. He is described as a white or Hispanic male around 6 feet tall, with long gray hair and a muscular build. He was last seen wearing a black long-sleeved shirt with blue pants. According to Fox 40, the victim's 12-year-old brother was in the home at the time of...

    A leaked partial document produced by the Bureau of Land Management and obtained by Fox News suggests the Obama administration is considering a plan to lock up 13 million acres of land -- and the Department of Interior is refusing to answer questions. First, a little background: The federal government owns about one-third of the land in the United States -- most of it in western states. For example, 84 percent of Nevada is owned by Uncle Sam. But the government leases large parcels of federal land for all sorts of things -- grazing, mining, exploration, recreation. Those commercial activities...

    Would Congress ever pass legislation that would allow the executive to determine at its own discretion whether political opponents had crossed the line into domestic terrorists and build camps in which to keep them? Sounds like something out of 20th-century totalitarian systems or dystopian fiction. Mark Tapscott says it’s not fiction , and he warns readers about an effort by Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) to do just that: Rep. Alcee Hastings - the impeached Florida judge Nancy Pelosi tried to install as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee until her own party members rebelled - introduced an amendment to the...

    State Police Lt. Richard Bolduc of Sandwich smiled as he left Barnstable District Court on Wednesday. If a judge dismisses a felony charge against him for improperly storing his service weapon, he might as well laugh at the justice system. Because if Judge Joan Lynch throws the case out, it would send the message that police are above the law. Here are the facts of the case, according to the Sandwich police: On June 25, Bolduc left his house and his service sidearm in an unlocked bureau. Bolduc's 12-year-old son took the gun, pointed it at a 5-year-old neighbor and...

Patrick White reportsYou won't be kicked off a car lot for asking about horsepower or ousted from a bar for asking about booze. But apparently, you can be tossed from a locksmith shop for asking about locks.

    Troy Molde awoke at 3 a.m. Thursday to police flashlights shining in his face. Two uniformed Lakeville officers were in his bedroom, knocking on the wall to wake him up. They were there, they said, to warn him to keep his doors closed and locked. Their surprise visit was part of a public service campaign. Officers had fanned out across the city, leaving notices on doors to remind residents how to prevent thefts by keeping garage doors closed, not leaving valuables in cars and locking windows or doors. But at Molde's house, they went further. His two sons, ages 5...

    Ted Kennedy and John McCain joined President Bush today in the Rose Garden for the signing of the new Anti-Lock Bill. "Finally," said Sen. McCain, "we can put to rest the notion that we discriminate against anyone in their right to freely assemble anyplace they wish. Fortunately, seeing this as the state's rights issue that it is, we decided to require the states to see it our way." "I'm delighted for the bag people," President Bush added. "They have too long had their contributions overlooked in our society. They are decent, hard-working people doing litter patrol jobs that no one...

    NORTH PLATTE, Neb. - Arthur Richardson thought he'd pull a prank and pretend to swallow a friend's truck key. Unfortunately, Wednesday's prank backfired when Richardson plopped the key in his mouth and gravity took over. Richardson went to a doctor Thursday, who X-rayed his stomach and got a clear picture of the key. The doctor said the key posed no danger, but Richardson's friend needed to use his truck. So Richardson and his friend took the X-rays to a locksmith, who used the pictures to fashion a new key. And it worked in the truck. John Somers, owner of Al's...

    Milking the Scared Cow By William John Hagan May 11, 2005 What is the one thing that the Democratic Party, the AARP, and the AFL-CIO all have in common? They all delight in scaring the hell out of old people. Al Gore may not have created the Internet but he certainly created the left-wing’s strategy opposing Social Security reform. Al’s idea was to create an imaginary “lock box” for the money withheld for Social Security; our government would neither invest this money nor lend it out. What went into Social Security would stay in Social Security. The only small problem...

    SACRAMENTO – Transportation officials backed by a coalition of labor and business leaders are demanding a lock on transportation funding, claiming that the state's habit of siphoning the sales tax on gas has hobbled California's economy, cost jobs and kept frazzled commuters from their families. San Diego County officials say the raiding of transportation accounts, if left unchecked, could drain $442 million from 20 local highway and mass transit programs in the budget year starting in June. Without long-term funding safeguards, plans to improve cross-border traffic and boost trade with Mexico could be slowed. The Escondido-to-Oceanside light rail is at...
  • Recall for Kryptonite brand locks (how to get yours)

    As some of you may have heard, a problem regarding cylinder-type locks has been revealed. They can be unlocked simply by jamming a bic-style pen into it. Kryptonite is issuing a voluntary recall and will replace all tubular cylinder-locks with non-tubular cylinder locks. Here is a link to a site that mentions the problem, including a video. Although they said that they are changing to a different brand of locks, I read other sources that say that this is a problem with several brands of locks too. Excerpt... ...If you currently own a Kryptonite tubular cylinder lock and are...

    A bullet hit the lock: the US was calling By Oliver Poole, with the US 3rd Infantry, Baghdad (Filed: 05/04/2003) A bullet fired through the lock on his front door was how Fawaz Alavan found out the Americans had arrived in Baghdad. Until then he had believed the propaganda of Saddam Hussein's regime that the US forces were no closer than Najaf, 100 miles away to the south. But as American troops conducted house to house searches to clear an enclave in the outskirts of the city, the chemical engineer learned they were literally on his doorstep. "I could not...

    Lock up refugees until they are vetted, say Tories By George Jones, Political Editor (Filed: 28/01/2003) The Tories will demand today that all asylum seekers should be held in secure accommodation on arrival in Britain until they have been vetted on security grounds. Iain Duncan Smith, the Conservative leader, will give a warning that the current "chaos" in the asylum system means that terrorists and criminals are entering Britain. He will announce that a future Tory government would seek an urgent review of international law on asylum, including the European Convention on Human Rights and the 1951 United Nations convention...
