    The story isn’t anyway near as good as the headline, but: A man faces charges after an unusual incident at a local library. 52-year-old Darrell Bess was taken into custody yesterday, naked, armed with knives and several pounds of stolen cheese. Bess was ordered by a judge to stay away from the Main branch of the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Public Library in downtown Cincinnati because of prior thefts.

    Two sisters from the northwestern B.C. community of Kitimat have both had close encounters with moose on the loose. A month ago, Yvonne Studley, 49, was badly injured when she hit a moose with her vehicle, so last Friday her sister decided to visit her in Vancouver General Hospital. But sister Connie Everitt, 51, also hit a moose and ended up in hospital. In the first accident a month ago, Studley was on her way home from a business trip when a moose ran in front of her car. The animal went through the windshield and landed on her, breaking...

    A Pierce County Superior Court judge Thursday sentenced LaTanya Clemmons to five years in prison for helping the suspected getaway driver after the murders of four Lakewood police officers in November. Clemmons' brother, Maurice, committed the worst violence against police in state history when he shot and killed Lakewood police Sgt. Mark Renninger and officers Tina Griswold, Ronald Owens and Greg Richards in a Parkland coffee shop early on Nov. 29. A Seattle police officer shot and killed Clemmons 40 hours later, following a massive manhunt. Judge Stephanie Arend told Clemmons that although her actions "would not have changed the...

    A NORWEGIAN boy, 12, reportedly saved himself and his sister from a moose attack using skills he picked up playing the online role-playing game World of Warcraft. Hans Jørgen Olsen, 12, and his sister encountered a moose during a walk in the forest near their home in the central Norwegian town of Leksvik, said the Norwegian online newspaper Nettavisen. It was then Olsen's WoW instincts reportedly kicked in. Firstly, he taunted the animal to get it away from his sister, the paper said. In WoW, players use taunting to shoo monsters away from weaker team members, the newspaper said. Then,...

    This is Sarah Corrie Simpson's first visit to Israel. Her younger sister, Rachel Corrie, was killed by an Israel Defense Forces bulldozer in Gaza in 2003, at the age of 23. Now, the family is suing the state in the Haifa District Court.

The witnesses, who include Rachel's colleagues in the left-wing International Solidarity Movement, say Rachel climbed atop a mount of dirt to be...

    Health Care: A government task force has decided that women need fewer mammograms and later in life. Shouldn't that be between patient and physician? We have seen the future of health care, and it doesn't work. We have warned repeatedly that the net results of health care bills before Congress will be higher demand, fewer doctors, more cost control, all leading to rationing. New recommendations issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) regarding breast cancer and the necessity for early and frequent mammograms do not convince us otherwise. Just six months ago, the panel, which works under the...

    IN a remote corner of rural Java, a blacksmith and his family were astounded last week to learn that the American woman who helped save them from poverty 26 years ago was Ann Dunham, an anthropologist better known as the late mother of the US president. Dunham is still remembered in the central Javan hamlet of Kajar as a generous benefactor whose gifts of money, food and schoolbooks helped numerous villagers. Yet none of them had realised that the woman who paid several visits to research rural crafts in the 1980s had a son who was to become America’s 44th...

    Wisconsin's "Cheese Lady" says she's marrying a retired Navy commander enamored by her efforts to sculpt an aircraft carrier out of cheddar. Professional cheese sculptor Sarah Kaufmann, 57, first caught the eye of retired U.S. Navy Cmdr.

The two were to wed Saturday in Manitowoc, Wis., on the shores of Lake Michigan, dressed in pirate costumes. "(Kaufmann) was looking at a...
