Benoit's doctor charged with improperly prescribing drugs in federal probe

ATLANTA - Pro wrestler Chris Benoit excessively bought injectable steroids before he strangled his wife and son and committed suicide last month, a federal agent said in court papers released Monday as Benoit's doctor was charged with improperly prescribing drugs to two other people.

A Drug Enforcement Administration agent's affidavit said Dr. Phil Astin prescribed a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids to Benoit every three to four weeks between May 2006 and May 2007. It says that during a probe of "RX Weight Loss," Benoit was identified as an excessive purchaser of injectable steroids. Prosecutors would not say what ...

U.S. alleges Iran was behind sophisticated January attack that killed 5 U.S. troops in Iraq

BAGHDAD - The U.S. military accused Iran on Monday of a direct role in a sophisticated militant attack that killed five American troops in Iraq, portraying Tehran as waging a proxy war through Shiite extremists.

The claims over the January attack marked a sharp escalation in U.S. accusations that Iran has been arming and financing Iraqi militants, and for the first time linked the Iranian effort to its ally, Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah militia. The allegations could endanger Iraqi efforts to hold a new round of talks between the U.S. and Iran.

Abby 0703

DEAR ABBY: I am a former junior high and high school teacher. I do not agree with your advice to "Deflowered in Pennsylvania" (May 2), the 28-year-old who made some "poor choices" as a teenager and is no longer a virgin. She is dating "Chris," a 26-year-old man who is saving himself for marriage and wants to marry a virgin. You told her that because Chris needs time to think about this discrepancy, she should move on.

Bush commutes 2 1/2-year prison term of former White House aide I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby

WASHINGTON - President Bush spared former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby from a 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak case Monday, stepping into a criminal case with heavy political overtones on grounds that the sentence was just too harsh.

Bush's move came hours after a federal appeals panel ruled Libby could not delay his prison term in the CIA leak case. That meant Libby was likely to have to report to prison soon and put new pressure on the president, who had been sidestepping calls by Libby's allies to pardon the former chief of ...

SHS student gears up for national fencing competition

When Blake Watson tells people that he fences, he says that they usually imagine him as Zorro or a light-saber-wielding Star Wars character. But the rising senior at Statesboro High School doesn't spend his time rescuing damsels in distress or battling "the dark side". While fencing is descended from the sword fights of old, it has evolved into a modern sport with national rankings, electronic scoring equipment, and Olympic-level tournaments. It takes as much physical ability as any other athletic competition and is as mentally challenging as a chess game.

New foundation for the future

When flames engulfed 97-year-old Lawrence Baptist Church in July of last year, many onlookers felt as if a part of their own lives had been burned away. Most of the old church was constructed of highly flammable pine, and after lightning struck its steeple, there was very little anyone could do to stop the blaze. While firefighters protected the nearby Fellowship Hall and Youth Building, members of the congregation looked on with horror and sadness as the sanctuary burned to the ground.
