    Winifred Skinner doesn't wear her Tommy Hilfiger jacket anymore. She bought the jacket on sale years ago, before she retired. She wore it as she walked on the east side of Des Moines, picking up discarded soda pop and beer cans, which she redeemed for a nickel apiece, using the proceeds to help pay for her prescription drugs.

    Patriot act: Chuck E.'s in love. Rickie Lee's in revolt By Larry Katz Friday, October 31, 2003 Rickie Lee Jones first charmed listeners 24 years ago with her biggest hit, ``Chuck E.'s In Love.'' Now she's singing about a guy named George W. and she's got no love for him at all. With her new album, ``The Evening of My Best Day,'' Jones ventures into topical songs for the first time in her career. She says she didn't start out intending to mix politics with her music. President Bush drove her to it. ``I started working on the record a...

    Are Democrats the new Tories? In light of recent events concerning the war on terrorism, it would appear so. The Tories of the Revolutionary Era--or Loyalists as some called them-- chose to side with the British insteard of their fellow colonists. By siding against American interests in the war on terror, Democrats and their allies have taken on the role of the Tories. History will not look favorably upon the Democrats due to their constant opposition to efforts to ensure American success in Iraq. The Tories of the Revolutionary War period were ''vilified as offenders against the public good who...

    12-08, Local: Officials seek cause of three local deaths By PATRINA A. BOSTIC A Gregg County justice of the peace says local officials will likely have to wait until January before they get a better idea of what caused the deaths of three East Texas women who became ill and died over a span of nine days after experiencing similar symptoms late last month. Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace B.H. Jameson requested autopsies for all three — including a teen and two women in their 40s — after they each died within 16 to 42 hours of becoming ill....
