  • Peyton wins Manning bowl, Colts beat Giants

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Peyton Manning showed some compassion for his little brother. It didn't help — the Indianapolis Colts pummeled Eli anyway.

    Big brother Peyton dispensed with his usual encouragement for his defense to get after the opposing quarterback. No matter: Peyton proved he still rules America's first family of quarterbacks and the Colts dominated Eli's New York Giants 38-14 Sunday night.

    Manning Matchup II was no contest.

    Sgt. Jeff Regenold was at the scene and said the accident occurred at about 7:10 a.m. when a 39-year-old man making a right-hand turn in his 1998 Ford station wagon hit a 56-year-old woman riding her bicycle.

  • Pipe with excess plutonium halts lab clean-up

    Discovery of a pipe with a high level of plutonium-239 at a clean-up site at Los Alamos National Laboratory has forced officials to shut down operations.
    The pipe, which was dug up by an excavator three weeks ago, had plutonium-239 that exceeded the amount lab officials had expected and that was allowed above the ground, lab spokesman Fred deSousa said Friday. The lab had estimated about 200 grams of plutonium-239 over the 6-acre clean-up site. The pipe alone had 42 grams, or about 1.6 ounces.
