  • Blast at Wyo. oil production site kills 3 workers

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — An explosion has killed three workers who had been laying a fuel line at a Wyoming oil storage site, an oil company spokesman said.

    The blast at about 10 a.m. Monday near Glenrock, in a remote region of eastern Wyoming, sparked a 10-acre fire before it was brought under control, Samson Resources Co. spokesman Dennis Neill said. The fuel line where the blast victims had been working was intended to supply a heater treatment facility that separates oil from water as they're pumped out of the ground.

  • Romney on Perry turf assails 'career politicians'

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney castigated "career politicians" Tuesday as he tried to distinguish himself from chief rival Rick Perry while on the governor's home turf in Texas.

    "I am a conservative businessman. I spent most of my life outside of politics, dealing with real problems in the real economy," Romney said told the Veterans of Foreign Wars annual convention in San Antonio. "Career politicians got us into this mess and they simply don't know how to get us out."

  • Disaster aid account faces shortfall

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The government's main disaster aid account is running woefully short of money as the Obama administration confronts damages from Hurricane Irene that could run into billions of dollars.

    With less than $800 million in its disaster aid coffers, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has been forced to freeze rebuilding projects from disasters dating to Hurricane Katrina to conserve money for emergency needs in the wake of Irene. Lawmakers from states ravaged by tornadoes this spring, like Missouri and Alabama, are especially furious.

  • Al Bundy's Walk of Fame star in front of shoe store

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Ed O'Neill's new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame would seem to be in an appropriate spot: in front of a DSW shoe store on Hollywood Boulevard.

    O'Neill used to play shoe salesman Al Bundy on the long-running sitcom "Married With Children."

    The Walk of Fame says the Emmy-nominated star of "Modern Family" will receive his sidewalk honor on Tuesday. The ceremony will feature his two TV wives, Sofia Vergara from "Modern," the current ABC hit, and Katey Sagal from "Married," which aired on Fox.

  • Obama faces tight restraints in crafting jobs plan

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Hamstrung by budget cuts and a tight debt ceiling, President Barack Obama is preparing a September jobs package with limited tools at his disposal to prime the economy and crank up employment.

    At a minimum, the president's plan will call on Congress to extend current payroll tax cuts and jobless benefits, spend money for new construction projects and offer incentives to businesses to hire more workers. But economists say that while that would eliminate some drag on the economy and maintain the status quo, it won't be enough to propel it to new heights.

  • Census: NM ranks 5th in proportion of gay couples

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New census figures show that New Mexico has the fifth-highest proportion of same-sex couples in the nation.

    The recently released analysis of 2010 Census figures shows that nearly 10 out of every 1,000 New Mexico households are headed by same-sex couples. That's a 73 percent jump from 2010.

    The Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law, based at the University of California, Los Angeles, released the report..

    Gary Gates, one of the study's authors, said the jump is likely a result of increased migration to the state and because more couples are identifying as same-sex households.

  • Bullying cries for community attention

    Ours is not the perfect little town. For all the amazing reasons that make this a great place to raise kids, we must not disregard that there is bullying in our schools.
    Bullying is a form of aggression in which one or more children intentionally intimidate, harass or harm another child who is perceived as being unable to defend himself.
    There is the aggressor, the victim and the bystander. The bully usually comes from an unfortunate place that is often chaotic with poorly set boundaries and expectations. The bully is unhappy about something or does not know how to get along with other kids.
