    The Sea Shepherd anti-whaling group said three Australian activists were being held as "prisoners" by the Japanese harpoon fleet Sunday after sneaking aboard one of their vessels overnight to protest. Sea Shepherd said they had helped the three men from the Forest Rescue Australia environmental group to board the Shonan Maru No.2 16 miles (26 kilometres) off Australia's west coast. "The boats approached the Shonan Maru under the cover of darkness and the three negotiated their way past the razor wire and spikes and over the rails to successfully board the Japanese whaling vessel," Sea Shepherd said of the Forest...

    In Texas, nearly 8,200 farms and ranches back up to the Mexican border. The men and women who live and work on those properties say they’re under attack from the same drug cartels blamed for thousands of murders in Mexico. “It’s a war, make no mistake about it,” Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples said. “And it’s happening on American soil.” Texas farmers and ranchers produce more cotton and more cattle than any other state, so Staples is concerned this war could eventually impact our food supply, and calls it a threat to our national security. “Farmers and ranchers are being...

Worshiping peacefully.The Islamic Center, housed in a magnificent building in Washington, D.C., has been around for over a half-century, but it is seldom in the news. Unless you drive by (on Embassy Row) you would not know that it there. Because it is supposed to be a peaceful place of worship, we would not expect local police to enter. Yet last March they did.

It's a measure aimed at making the act of party crashing a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine or both. The author of the legislation, Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Canada Flintridge), said crashers at high-profile events like the Academy Awards and other awards shows pose a threat to public safety that warrants a law in addition to the 25 sections of trespassing code already on...

The man is likely the U.S. citizen the North has held since January after he supposedly entered the reclusive state from China, South Korean government officials told local media. The North identified the man as Aijalon Mahli Gomes, adding he was from Boston. His "crime has been confirmed," its official KCNA news agency said without elaborating.

    While Johnston – who is well known to the Palins – feared for his own hide, he wasn’t afraid that this stranger on the Palins’ property would be shot. If the “fearless” Johnston was a man, he would have left Griffin in the truck and dropped off the “invitation.” Instead, he cowered in the truck, while the woman took care of business, though, it was her own nefarious business that was being tended to. This appears to be his modus operandi in life: leave the woman holding the bag, dump the responsibilities on her, while letting Rex Butler, Tank Jones,...

Engelking, 27, aimed to hunt deer Wednesday morning when he noticed a pipeline crew on his land. He hopped on his ATV and told workers they had no right to be on his property because he had received no compensation from Enbridge Energy Partners L.P. for an easement. Engelking said workers told him he was in an unsafe place and asked him to come to an equipment staging area, where he continued...

    "My country has let me down." That's the assessment of an Arizona rancher who was sued by six illegal immigrants he detained on his property and turned over to the Border Patrol in 2004. On Tuesday an eight-member federal jury in Tucson threw out the claim brought by the six illegal aliens that Roger Barnett violated their civil rights when he detained them at gunpoint on his ranch nearly five years ago. The panel also ruled against the plaintiffs' claims of battery and false imprisonment. But the jury did find Barnett liable on four claims of assault and four claims...

The jury of four men and four women returned the verdict Tuesday afternoon in U.S. District Court in Tucson after a day and a half of deliberation. The jury, after a nine-day trial, also threw out charges of false imprisonment, battery and conspiracy against Douglas, Ariz., rancher Roger Barnett.

Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol, he said, after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home.

    Two Catholic priests were taken into custody at the Federal Courthouse in Tucson this morning after they were sentenced to five months behind bars for trespassing at the military’s Ft. Huachuca last year. The priests — the Rev. Louis J. Vitale and the Rev. Steve Kelly — had been facing up to 10 months in lockup. The San Francisco Bay-area clerics were arrested last Nov. 19 while protesting military intelligence training at Ft. Huachuca, about 75 miles southeast of Tucson. They were set to deliver a letter to the post’s top commander, Maj. Gen. Barbara Fast, stating that the facility...

The result could have a devastating effect on dog owners but also could bring relief to landowners who have had to watch helplessly as strange dogs entered their properties, urged on by various hunting parties. I know a little about this. A relative of mine lives on several hundred beautiful acres in Floyd County, west of the Blue Ridge. There are...

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jim Kirk in Alexandria handed down an opinion that the public can boat, fish and hunt on the waters of the Mississippi River as it rises and falls and that local sheriffs cannot arrest the fishermen and hunters for trespassing as long as they remain in their boats. The opinion was prompted by a motion to dismiss a case against East Carroll Parish Sheriff Mark Shumate for...

    Two separate backgrounds --- Teaching With Documents: The Zimmermann Telegram - Background (archives.gov)Between 1914 and the spring of 1917, the European nations engaged in a conflict that became known as World War I. While armies moved across the face of Europe, the United States remained neutral. In 1916 Woodrow Wilson was elected President for a second term, largely because of the slogan "He kept us out of war." Events in early 1917 would change that hope. In frustration over the effective British naval blockade, in February Germany broke its pledge to limit submarine warfare. In response to the breaking of...

    The Illegal Immigration and English-Only Debates Have Heated Up in Southwestern OhioThe two issues (English as official language and illegal immigration) should be kept separate. If you speak perfect English and you're here illegally, the law says you should be deported. If you're here legally, struggling with English, and don't think the official language idea is a good one, it's your right as a citizen to speak out, vote, and even run for office. You see? They're separate. But now, thanks to our local PC paper and a local legislator, the two will probably be joined at the hip around...

    A judge in New Hampshire said police cannot charge illegal aliens with criminal trespass, dismissing cases yesterday against eight aliens and ending what some had hoped could be a new approach to tackling illegal immigration. In his written order, Judge L. Phillips Runyon III said immigration enforcement is a federal duty, and the towns of New Ipswich and Hudson in southern New Hampshire were encroaching on it. "The criminal trespass charges against the defendants are unconstitutional attempts to regulate in the area of enforcement of immigration violations," Judge Runyon wrote. Police in the two towns had pulled the aliens over...

    A New Hampshire judge on Friday threw out a novel strategy that two police departments had tried to use to combat illegal immigration. The strategy involved charging illegal immigrants with criminal trespassing, and in the last few months such citations were filed against at least nine people, most of them Mexicans, in the towns of New Ipswich and Hudson. The police chiefs of those towns had said they decided to take immigration matters into their own hands because overburdened federal immigration authorities were unable or unwilling to take action against immigrants who were not considered dangerous or otherwise a high...
