Judge strikes down National Security Agency's program

DETROIT--U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled Thursday that the U.S. government's warrantless domestic eavesdropping program is not only illegal, but unconstitutional, and ordered an immediate halt to it.


WASHINGTON--On a street once known as Murder Row, a teen center founded to steer youths away from drugs and crime has become an outpost in another crusade -- a nationwide push by anti-abortion activists to expand their foothold in heavily Black and Hispanic inner cities.


Pat Hurst watched expressionless as Jeong Jang prepared to putt on the 18th hole Sunday.

Hurst had already wrapped up her round at the Safeway Classic, a 4-under 68 that gave her the lead.

Jang was a shot back, but her birdie putt was less than 18 feet away. If she sank it, a playoff would be necessary.

"I kept thinking I didn't want to miss on the low side," Jang said. "But I did."

Jang finished with a 70 for a 9-under 207 at Columbia Edgewater Golf Club in Portland, and was the runner-up at the tournament for the third time -- one shot back of Hurst.

"I just keep trying and keep trying," she said.

Kim Saiki shot a 67 on the 6,377-yard, par-72 course to finish tied with Jang. Saiki was also second in Portland to Chris Johnson in 1997.

Juli Inkster had a 70 to finish two strokes back at 208.

"I had a pretty hot start. I birdied three of the first four holes, I think, and I just kept it steady after that," Hurst said.

Actually, she birdied four of the first five holes to finish with seven and wasn't hurt by three bogeys after starting the day in a group one stroke behind the leaders.



Do Something is seeking to honor six outstanding leaders age 18 and under and three outstanding leaders age 19 to 25 who have taken action to strengthen their communities in the areas of community building, health, or the environment. 
Winners in the 18 and under category will receive a $5,000 scholarship and $5,000 community grant.  Older winners will receive a $10,000 community grant.  Applications are due by October 25, 2006.

Project aims to raise African Americans' political involvement

It can be hard in today's world to be heard when you've got something to say. And when you're a person of color in Oregon, it can be even harder — despite recent U.S. Census Bureau information showing that Oregon is growing more diverse, it's still among the Whitest states in the Union.


The party gets bouncing at the recent Self Enhancement Inc. 25th anniversary celebration, held at the organization's headquarters on North Kerby Avenue. For more on the celebration, see page 14.


Ralph Nickerson, left, Trail Blazers Head Coach Nate McMillan and Paul Knauls Sr. warm up before last year's African American Health Coalition Wellness Walk. This year's walk, the fourth annual, steps off at 9 a.m. Saturday at Dawson Park, corner of Northeast Stanton Street and Williams Avenue.
