    Forty-five years ago this past Friday, Norman Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. “More than any other person of (the) age,” the Nobel Committee stated, the Christ follower had “helped to provide bread for a hungry world.” Indeed, Dr. Borlaug, who grew up on an Iowa farm, who earned a Ph.D in plant pathology, was the father of the “green revolution.” His breakthroughs in breeding high-yielding crops averted the mass famines widely predicted during the 1960s. In so doing, he “alter(ed) the course of history,” the New York Times eulogized in 2009. In his Nobel Lecture, Borlaug noted, “Man’s...

The finding lends support to a theory that the guardsmen thought they were being shot at during a campus Vietnam War protest. Witnesses said at the time that an FBI informant monitoring the protest fired warning shots because he felt threatened.

"I believe he accidentally blew himself up," Sgt. George Mauldin said. Mauldin said Hinrichs, 21, an engineering student, had two to three pounds of triacetone triperoxide, commonly known as TATP, in a backpack in his lap when it exploded Oct. 1. When asked if he believed Hinrichs meant to enter the stadium with the explosives, Mauldin replied, "I don't believe he intended for an explosion to occur at...

Within 24 hours of the event, three players in the unfolding story issued statements aimed at quashing rumors that the bombing was terrorist related. University President David Boren, in...

At a 2 p.m. news conference, Norman Police Department spokesman J.D.

    The U.S. is engaged in a bloody war in Iraq for the purpose of eliminating the remnants of a terrorist regime, foreign terrorists, and bringing democracy to Iraq and the region. It is a big gamble that has put radical Islam on the defensive around the world. But shocking evidence demonstrates that controversial former U.S. Marine and former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who now writes for the anti-American Arab "news" organization Al Jazeera, was involved in a controversial effort to stop the war by enlisting prominent personalities in a "peace" campaign.

    Update on Hubby..Guess what?! I'm bringing him home!!! I went over to the nursing home today to take Norman his noontime power drink and had some very good news awaiting me! I can bring Norman home on Friday! I can't believe it! His breathing has improved so much, he's gone from 16 liters of oxygen and today is down to 2! 2! Unbelievable! His doctor said that his latest xray revealed even more improvement. When asked what that meant, he said he'd rather not comment until Norman has another CATScan! I'm beginning to wonder if not only have his lungs...

    CRANK UP THE PRAYERS! WE'RE SEEING MIRACLES! I'm not sure where to begin. I shared about the dream Norman had about being given a choice of going with the "man" or staying here to live. Last Saturday, they put Norman into Hospicecare. They essentially sent him there to die. I called the children and had them fly in to say their goodbyes. All came running. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday Norman couldn't even open up his eyes. He couldn't talk other than grunt. It looked about as dire as it can get. On Monday nite, we (the family) started giving him...

    Hubby might be dying....need your prayers Dear friends, My sweet husband might be dying in the next few days. They're planning on moving him out of the hospital and into a long care facility. The Doctor said there is nothing they can do for him, and he might die during transport to the facility. The kids are on their way in case it's goodbye. Norman is everything to us. We all love him so dearly. Please keep me and the three kids in your prayers. We'll soon know if his dream was a Near Death Experience or if it was...

    Norman's awesome dream..Update on Hubby I just got in from the hospital. Norman seems very tired and unwell today...he had a full day of tests yesterday. They seem to have a debilitating affect on him. The Onocologist came in while I was there. It is cancer. They will do Chemotherapy as soon as he can tolerate it. The breathing is complicating things. He's on 100% oxygen and he has to be back to 4 liters and on his feet before they can start treatment. There is still fluid...they're considering putting a drain in. I'm glad I was there as I...

    My precious Prayer Warriors, Once again, we need your help and love. I had to admit Norman to the hospital yesterday. I don't understand why, because he seemed to be doing much better. His attitude was terrific, we had a peace, and I was able to get more food in him. But when he had the biopsy, he began with immediate severe pain, sweats, and more labored breathing. Yesterday when he got up he told me he didn't know whether it was morning or night and he couldn't remember our daughter's name. So I prayed all the while he was...

    B'klyn Dem Leader Norman Arraigned By Graham Rayman Staff Writer October 10, 2003, 3:47 PM EDT After a night in the District Attorney's office, county democratic leader Clarence Norman strolled into a Brooklyn courtroom yesterday in handcuffs with a smile on his face. Norman was arraigned yesterday before Bronx Supreme Court justice Martin Marcus on two counts of grand larceny and one count of failing to file business records. He pleaded not guilty. He faces up to seven years in prison. The handcuffs were removed after he walked in by a detective, who smiled almost apologetically to Norman's parents who...
  • Champions of Limited Government?

    The Collegian ^ | September 8, 2000 | J. H. Huebert
    Conservative Republicans usually say that they favor "limited government." That sounds pretty good to me. Our federal government is too big, so I like the idea cutting the government back to a point where it takes less of my money, spends less of my money, and doesnt involve itself in my life any more than is absolutely necessary to defend me and my property. But what do the Republicans mean when they talk about "limited government"? Looking at George W. Bushs proposals, Im not sure. Between all of his programs, Gov. Bush proposes adding about $42 billion in spending to...
