    MICHIGANTOWN, Indiana (AP) -- An Indiana pet store owner says he sees the image of Satan on the shell of a turtle that was the only survivor of a store fire in October. The palm-sized red-eared slider turtle, named Lucky, was the only animal to survive the fire at Dora's A-Dora-ble Pet Shop in nearby Frankfort, about 40 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Owner Bryan Dora now says he sees Satan's face on the critter's shell. He can spot lips, eyes, a goatee, shoulders and a pair of pointy horns on Lucky's back.

A few days after the robbery, he walked into the Euless police station to pick up his wallet after a detective called to tell him someone had found it.

    This Thanksgiving my son and daughter in law gave us a surprise present--a sonogram of our grandchild to be. Suddenly, the urge to knit was triggered. I love to do it but haven't for some years, after I'd made dozens of coats and sweaters for every man, woman and child of my acquaintance. A frenzied search through the house for saved patterns, yarns, and knitting tools ensued, as well as a search for yet more. (Perhaps you have to be a knitter to understand, but no matter the size of the stash, there's always need for more.) After ordering the...

How much of the mislabeling was unintentional or fraud is unknown, said Dr. Peter B. Marko, assistant professor of marine...

    DALLAS -- Dallas police said they don't plan to file charges against the owner of a Dallas convenience store who shot and killed a suspected robber.

    I thought I would tell a very interesting story that helps prove that liberals are endlessy clueless and endlessly downtrodden and depressed. I work for a certain grocery chain. Yesterday we had a store meeting which was called. We watched an hour's worth of Ed Foreman. Ed is a motivational speaker. Here are his credentials. Read them then I'll go on with the story.

    A West Milwaukee store tops a national gun control group's list of what it calls the nation's worst gun dealers. But the owner of Badger Outdoors Inc., 2339 S. 43rd St., said his store goes out of its way to cooperate with law enforcement authorities. "We run a straight, honest shop here," owner Mick Beatovic said. "If we break the law in this store, I go to prison." Using U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives records regarding guns sold between December 1989 and January 1996, the Washington-based Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence listed the 10 dealers nationwide...

    Wal-Mart Opens First Store in Beijing By CHRISTOPHER BODEEN Associated Press Writer BEIJING (AP) -- Wal-Mart, the world's biggest retailer, opened its first outlet in China's capital Friday, making its inaugural foray into a major Chinese city after setting up 22 stores elsewhere in the country. Thousands of shoppers packed the cavernous Sam's Club store on the far western edge of Beijing, testing out electronics, puzzling over imported cheese and loading shopping carts full of beer, paper towels and fresh seafood. "We'll try it out. The prices look cheap, but it's a little far to come," said Li Mei, a...

    PORTERVILLE - It was business as usual this morning at Sherwood Handy Market, even though just hours earlier a shooting occurred during a robbery attempt.

Deputies were told two men wearing red clothing walked into the market and demanded money from the clerk. When he did not...

    <p>A watchful eye.</p> <p>The state's system of categorical funding for schools is a bureaucratic labyrinth. It consists of dozens and dozens of separate pots of money and is marked by outdated programs and inequities.</p> <p>It is also marked by a sea of red tape that is inconsistent and confusing. Some categoricals are closely watched by the state, and the scrutiny, uncomfortable as it can be, has paid off for both taxpayers and schoolchildren. Other programs receive limited reviews, or no monitoring at all, begging the question of whether they are working.</p>

    A Modesto sports memorabilia store owner shot and killed a gunman trying to rob the shop Monday afternoon, police said. Detectives questioned and later released Dave Prendergast, 57, after the shooting, which happened at Dr. Sports Cards & Collectibles at 415 Burney St. Evidence was inconclusive in determining whether detectives would recommend criminal charges be filed against Prendergast, Detective Phil Owen said. The robber, who was shot once in the head, had not been identified late Monday, police spokesman Doug Ridenour said. At 1:15 p.m., several witnesses heard two gunshots come from inside the downtown Modesto business. Moments later, a...
