Homeland security may inspire snooping
July 20, 2002
By Ellen Goodman Washington Post Writers Group In Washington, a new International Spy Museum has opened just in the nick of time. Among the artifacts of hot and cold war on display is an overcoat with a camera lens hidden in a button and a pistol-lipstick called “the kiss of death.” But best of all is a gift shop with disguises for sale. May I suggest that you get ‘em while they’re hot? If all goes according to government plan, they’ll make great Christmas presents for the cable guy and the UPS gal, for the meter reader and electrical worker. After all, these are the folks invited to volunteer in the newest branch of the war against terrorism: a civilian spy corps.

Peltier forum to discuss recent FBI disclosures The Leonard Peltier Defense Committee is sponsoring a forum at 7:30 p.m. today in Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vt. The forum will feature activists, including Jennifer Harbury, a human rights attorney; Bruce Ellison, a founding member of the Wounded Knee Legal Defense/Offense committee; Bernard Kleinman, lead attorney in a civil suit against the FBI in Peltier’s case; and Michael Kuzma, who has directed Freedom of Information Act efforts on Peltier’s behalf. The forum will focus on thousands of pages of documents connected to Peltier’s case that were recently released by the FBI. Peltier is serving two life sentences for the 1975 execution-style murders of two FBI agents during a siege at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Advocates for Peltier’s release from the U.S. Penitentiary at Leavenworth claim the U.S. government falsified evidence leading to Peltier’s arrest and coerced false testimony or hid exonerating evidence to obtain his conviction. __________ Baldwin: Police chief resigns Embattled Baldwin Police Chief Steve Butell resigned Friday, effective immediately, Mayor Ken Hayes said. Earlier this month, Butell’s son, Shawn, 22, pleaded guilty in Douglas County District Court to one count of burglary and one count of misdemeanor theft. That came after a series of events involving the department: In July 2001, a recently suspended officer wrecked his personal vehicle and was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. He later resigned from the Police Department. In April and May, four officers threatened lawsuits against the city because of alleged civil rights violations during disciplinary proceedings. In claims filed with the city, they sought up to $300,000 apiece. No replacement for Butell has been named; Hayes said an officer from a neighboring agency would serve as interim chief. __________ Arts: Folk concert canceled after death of performer A concert that was to have kicked off the new West Side Folk series on Aug. 4 has been canceled because of the death of one of the performers. Bob McWilliams, organizer of the folk concert series, said singer-musician Dave Carter had died of a heart attack while jogging Friday morning in Northhampton, Mass. Carter was to have appeared with singer-songwriter Tracy Grammer at the show, scheduled at Unity Church of Lawrence. Carter and Grammer were the most-often-played artists on folk radio in 2001. They recently toured with Joan Baez. Those who bought tickets at Mass Street Music for the concert can return them to West Side Folk, 1001 Parkview Road, Lawrence 66049, for a refund. McWilliams said those who bought tickets via mail order need do nothing because the checks have not been cashed. __________ Gasoline Prices: Pump Patrol seeks deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.37 at several Lawrence locations. If you find a lower price, call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name and address of the business and the price.

Many probably aren’t even aware what races are being contested and who the candidates are.

Democrats play blame game
July 20, 2002
By Cal Thomas Tribune Media Services Questions are being raised by Democrats and the big media (but I repeat myself) about Dick Cheney’s large profit from the sale of Halliburton stock options in August 2000. Cheney divested himself of Halliburton shares as he left the energy company to run for vice president. The fact that editorials in The New York Times and other papers called on Cheney to sell his stock to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest apparently has been forgotten. The suggestion now is that Cheney did something wrong. Does anyone wish to compare this vice president’s integrity with his predecessor, Mr. “no controlling legal authority”?
