Louise Larson  The Herald-Zeitung  Three weeks after his disappearance from the family home in New Braunfels, baby Joshua J. Davis remains at the center of a whirl of questions and resources.  Expert investigators and praying friends all continue to ask what happened to the missing 18-month-old, who  vanished from his residence in the 2600 block of Savannah Hill Circle on the cold night of Feb. 4.

Turmoil rocks Libya’s oil sector, slashing output  Gadhafi  BREGA, Libya (AP) — The massive oil terminal at Brega feels strangely deserted for Libya's second-largest hydrocarbon complex.  After more than a week of turmoil in the country, production has been scaled back by almost 90 percent with many employees fleeing and ships not coming to collect its products.  The most activity on the site Saturday appeared to be a squad of boys from the nearby town finishing the job of tearing apart the local headquarters of Moammar Gadhafi’s Revolutionary Committee.  The seaside Brega complex, some 125 miles (200  ■ RELATED: President Obama says Moammar Gadhafi must leave Libya "now."

It also produces some petrochemicals and refined products for local consumption.  Since the crisis began on Feb. 15, however, General Manager Fathi Eissa said the facility has had to scale back production dramatically from 90,000 barrels of crude a day to just 11,000.  There are no reliable figures about the impact of the uprising against Gadhafi on Libya’s oil exports, but facilities across the country have  See LIBYA, Page 8A  Unrest raises concerns in oil market  Eight countries in the world s biggest oil-producing region are in some stage of upheaval Not all produce oil, but their stability has an impact on the region's oil industry.
