    Pennsylvania 'absolutely critical' for Clinton campaign, aide says By Salena Zito and David M. Brown TRIBUNE-REVIEW Saturday, March 8, 2008 Winning the Pennsylvania primary on April 22 is "absolutely critical" to Hillary Clinton's hope of overtaking Barack Obama in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, a top Clinton aide said Friday. Clinton will visit Pennsylvania on Monday and Tuesday, with campaign stops in Scranton, Harrisburg and Philadelphia. Former President Bill Clinton will be stumping for his wife on Tuesday in Pittsburgh, but the campaign did not immediately provide details about that visit. Asked whether Clinton must win Pennsylvania to...

    Dig uncovers Iron Age waterhole Archaeologists have found what they describe as a remarkable Iron Age waterhole on the site of an extension to York University. The waterhole complete with a preserved wickerwork lining was revealed during excavations in Heslington village. The structure also contains fragments of wood giving clues to the landscape of the time, about 2,500 years ago. The university's archaeology department plans more digs at the site, which also contains an important Roman building. The university plans to open the site to local archaeological community groups as well as allowing students access to a live dig. 'Fantastic...

Other states with topping the list included New Jersey, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Anti-Jewish incidents increased in Colorado in 2007 for the first time in three years, ranking eighth in the nation for anti-Semitic activity.

    ON ONE SIDE of the fence, you have those who think 49ers coach Mike Nolan is the second coming of bumbling Barry Switzer and want him fired. Now! On the other side, you have those who believe Nolan is a decent coach who took over an NFL disaster area and deserves another year to fix the mess he inherited. And me? I'm on the fence, waiting to be convinced that this decision truly, truly matters one way or the other for the 49ers. You see, even if Nolan goes, John York, the man at the top of the 49ers' corporate...

    The 49ers made major changes to their front-office structure Friday, hiring former A's executive and Memphis Grizzlies President Andy Dolich as their new chief operating officer. Team co-owner John York said he maintain his same role overseeing the day-to-day operation of the franchise, but he will increase the responsibilities of son Jed, who has been taking a lead role in the 49ers' negotiations for a new stadium in either Santa Clara or San Francisco. He is not stepping down or stepping aside from the team. "Not a bit," York said. "Jed's role continues to grow but he is primarily working...

    Well, that's it for Mike Nolan. And while we're at it, that's almost surely it for Alex Smith, too - if not immediately, then after one more season, tops. And if Denise DeBartolo York is on the level about this new general manager thing, that might be it for Tortoise-Shell Johnny as football chief, too. In other words, the Nolan-Smith blood feud, which has reached full boil, is going to blow up a franchise that already was chest-deep in rubble. The last three years will have been a waste, and they were designed because the three years before them were...

    Archbishop makes Zimbabwe protest Dr John Sentamu Dr John Sentamu has been a consistent critic of Mr Mugabe The Archbishop of York has cut up his dog collar and said he will not replace it until Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe is out of office. Dr John Sentamu made the symbolic protest gesture live on BBC One's Andrew Marr Show. He said Mr Mugabe had "taken people's identity" and "cut it to pieces", prompting him to do the same. Prime Minister Gordon Brown has boycotted an EU-Africa summit because of Mr Mugabe's presence.

    The Conservative Party was formed in 1962 to restore a meaningful choice to the voters of New York State. At that time, the three existing political parties espoused the doctrinaire liberal philosophy of the welfare state at home and the collectivist ideology abroad. In just four short decades, the party has grown from a small band of conservative-minded men and women to a statewide organization of almost 170,000 individuals dedicated to the traditional American values of individual freedom, individual responsibility and individual effort. From a humble beginning garnering 141,000 votes on ballot Row F, our principles have attracted Empire State...

    The Times admitted it distributed an article in the March 18 edition of its Sunday Magazine, while knowing the story contained some glaring inaccuracies. The article was about women who served in Iraq, the sexual abuse some say they endured, and their struggles in reclaiming their pre-war lives. But one of the women profiled, who said she'd been raped twice and suffered brain damage when a roadside bomb exploded next to her Humvee, was never actually IN Iraq.

    Turning back time to York 1300 By Press reporter RESEARCHERS from York Archaeological Trust have identified a remarkable artefact which shows that in 1300, York was at the forefront of science and engineering. The object, a small circular copper-alloy disc, was discovered during excavations on the site of the former York College For Girls in Low Petergate. It has been cleaned to reveal an abbreviated Latin inscription around its edge - SIGNUM ROBERTI HOROLOGIARII - which translates as "The seal of Robert the clockmaker". What makes the discovery exceptional is the fact that early historical records indicate that the first...

    What's in a name? If you are the San Francisco 49ers, a lot, apparently. A Super-Bowl-size battle is brewing over the fate of the team's name and whether it would still be allowed to call itself the San Francisco 49ers if it relocates to Santa Clara. Team officials say that any move would involve bringing along the San Francisco name. But in the city by the bay, where leaders are furious over last week's surprise announcement that the 49ers want to leave their Candlestick Point home, officials already are arguing that, if the team goes, the name stays. Legal experts,...

    BBC frightened of criticising Islam, says archbishop By Jonathan Petre, Religion Correspondent Last Updated: 2:21am GMT 14/11/2006 The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has accused the BBC of bias against Christianity and says the broadcaster fears a terrorist backlash if it is critical of Islam. The archbishop, the second most senior figure in the Church of England's hierarchy, said Christians took "more knocks" than other faiths at the hands of the BBC. Dr Sentamu claims Christians take ‘more knocks' at the BBC "They can do to us what they dare not do to the Muslims," he said. "We are...
