By ERIKA BOLSTAD ebolstad@adn.com Last Modified: May 2nd, 2008 10:13 AM WASHINGTON -- Senate Republicans, continuing a national GOP push to hammer Democrats on gas prices, unveiled a domestic oil exploration plan Thursday that includes a call for opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling.

    (KAAL) - Minnesota's Governor is wrapping up his campaign trip to Michigan. Pawlenty spent the weekend stumping for Presidential hopeful John McCain for the Republican nomination. Pawlenty hit several town hall meetings saying the Arizona Senator has the character and experience for the job. Pawlenty used his own Midwestern values to make the pitch. "We like straight talk - people who are authentic. We like people who are the real deal,” Pawlenty said. Political experts say Pawlenty's youth and vitality gives McCain a boost with young voters while raising his own profile with republican voters. Pawlenty has repeatedly denied that...

    Melting Glacier Reveals Ancient Tree Stumps LiveScience.com Tue Oct 30, 2:15 PM ET Melting glaciers in Western Canada are revealing tree stumps up to 7,000 years old where the region's rivers of ice have retreated to a historic minimum, a geologist said today. Johannes Koch of The College of Wooster in Ohio found the fresh-looking, intact tree stumps beside retreating glaciers in Garibaldi Provincial Park, about 40 miles (60 kilometers) north of Vancouver, British Columbia. Radiocarbon dating of the wood from the stumps revealed the wood was far from fresh—some of it dated back to within a few thousand years...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declined to formally endorse his "great friend" U.S. Sen. John McCain during a press conference at the Port of Los Angeles this morning, but the Republican governor certainly added a political boost to the Arizona senator if he decides to run for president. When a reporter asked if today's event - with a dramatic backdrop of ships unloading and an environmental theme - was an edge toward endorsing McCain, the senator jumped in and joked: "I think it's the endorsement, yes." Schwarzenegger responded: "We are not doing presidential politics here. We are here to talk about the...

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Thursday night promised 1,200 civic and business leaders to work "like a machine" until two propositions to close California's budget deficit were approved by voters.

Before Davis spoke, the union members demonstrated along El Camino Real, outshouting a small, but determined group of supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Simon.</p>
