Question Of The Week, 10/30/05

I'm a little late with this weeks question. We had company when I got off work at 11:PM yesterday and our Grand Daughter was on the computer when I got up this morning. This week I want to use the Question Of The Week to find out what is going on in your area. So this weeks question is. What is the top news story of your local news paper? I'll post my answer in the comment section Monday night.

From the Sunday edition of the Washington Post, two stories above the fold on the front page: "A Leak, Then a Deluge" (the bigger feature, about Scooter Libby) and "Kurds Reclaiming Prized Territory in Northern Iraq."

In the local section of the paper: "At Many Elementary Schools, the Party's Over." This article deals with the newest efforts to curb child obesity. Schools in the D.C. area are discouraging children's bringing in of birthday goodies, are instituting exercise clubs, and are cracking down of vending-machine junk food; and the newest emphasis is having fewer parties with cupcakes, brownies, etc.

When I was a school principal, I had a hard time controlling my weight because of all the birthday parties.

We had only one day a month for the goodies parties,but the students could bring in a variety of healthy snacks on their individual special days--veggie platters and the like.

The top news in Oklahoma lately has been about the lottery (which is now here finally) and the various Republicans lining up to try and dethrone the first good governor this state has had in decades (Demoocrat Brad Henry). CHEER!

Mostly about our Democrat governor and the inability of Republicans to find a candidate to offer any challenge to him. Very little about the Iraq war.

Man, I'd hate to break tradition and get something done when I say it will be done. Post my answer Monday night, HA! Due to problems at work I had to stay over until 11:30 PM Monday, I got a half hour over time. When I got home I found out our Siberian Husky (Sasha) had escaped. She is in the house until I get the dog run fixed in the morning. On to the answer, I'm talking about Sunday the 30th. I thought papers all across the country would be full of political scandal articles. The St. Joseph News-Press surprised me. There were three articles on the front page. A quarter page article continued on page A.8, "Blasts in India Kill 58". Another quarter went to, "Be safe: check sex-offender list" continued on page A.8. This was a Halloween warning to parents who were sending their kids out to search for goodies. Not a bad idea really. I think they should check this list more than once a year. Half of the front page went to, "Individuals who changed St.Joe./Early leaders created foundation, continued on pages A.9 & 10. Saint Joseph has had some interesting residents. Fur trader Joseph Robidoux incorporated the city in 1843, it started out a trading post. The Pony Express had it's Eastern offices in Saint Joseph. Confederate General Jeff (Swamp Fox) Thompson was once the mayor of Saint Joseph. Before he left for the war he climbed city hall and tore down the Union Flag. God Bless Jeff Thompson. How could you tell a story about Saint Joseph and not mention Jesse James? They didn't, Jesse is mentioned here too. Saint Joseph is where he was living when he was murdered. His home is now a Historic Site and museum.This was an interesting article but I'm not so sure it should have been front page news. Where was the political scandal? Page A.3. Come to think of it, I like that. That half page article was a refreshing change.

I want to thank all of you for stopping by.I already have a plan for next weeks question. It will be the 1st in a series of related questions. I'm sure you will know where I'm going with this when you see the 1st question.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
