American Indian soldiers cleared to use peyote
ALBUQUERQUE, N M. (AP) —
- American Indian soldiers will be fclffrited to take the kalfucinogemc plant peyote as part of their religious ceremonies under new guidelines adopted by the military.
The announcement Tuesday ends years of pain for Marine Staff Sgt. Shawn Arnold, who said he had been told not to practice his faith.
“I wake up every morning, and I don’t have that full feeling of freedom because I have to consider that hey, anytime, it could be this day that they decide to prosecute me,” said Arnold, 38, a platoon leader at the Quantico, Va.. Marine base.
Arnold, who hails from the Navajo reservation in Shiprock, N.M., said he had twice been threatened with court-martial because of his religion.

JL/ClUyltvl I. JI J. US I JLvXlA ll llwl Vt VV ll IvuiJV/llu DENVER (AP) — Timothy purging its witness list of criticized
DEAR ABBY: My 17-year-old daughter (I’ll call her Carrie) was dating a young man IMI call Brad for approximately nine months.
Carrie has a part-time job that pays for her entertainment and also her gas and minor repairs to the car her father and I gave her.
When the two of them went out, Carrie would drive because Brad did not have his license, let alone a car. He also did not have a job.
He managed to find the money for tennis shoes that cost $150 a pair, but he never offered to put gas in the car.
About a month before Brad’s birthday, he asked to borrow $50 from Came.
He said he’d pay her back when he received money for his birthday. Well, his birthday came and went, and he made no attempt to pay back the money.
He avoided her when she went to his house to collect. Neither would he return her phone calls. I was very upset and told her so.
After a month of this, Carrie got fed up and finally told Brad to keep the money — he was not worth it.
I recently found out that she has been seeing Brad behind my back.
When I asked her about it, she said she did not tell me because she knew I would be angry.
I told her that since her father and I were paying for the car, Brad was not to ride in it, and I did not want him calling my house.
I put a block on my phone so that his calls would not be received.
When Carrie found out about this, she became quite upset.
Now his family’s phone has been disconnected and Brad goes to a friend’s house to call her.
Every time he calls, I block that number also.
I have talked to Carrie about having respect for herself and not allowing others to take advantage of her.
I know that this is not my fight, but by accepting Brad’s behavior, she is allowing him to think he can continue to do this to people. (I have heard through the grapevine that this is not the first time he has done it.)
How can I convince her that Brad is no good and she should have more respect for herself?
FRUSTRATED MOM IN NEW ORLEANS
DEAR MOM: Carrie is almost an adult, and you are not going to teach her self-respect by blocking her telephone calls.
All you have accomplished is to make yourself Mthe enemy” and drive your daughter into the arms of the young man who victimized her in the first place.
I doubt the lines of communication will open very far if you continue trying to block them behind your daughter’s back. Some lessons can be expensive, and Carrie may have to learn them for herself. I wish you both luck.
DEAR ABBY: My parents got divorced when I was 11 months old. My dad got married again, and he and his wife live in Pennsylvania and I live in New Hampshire.
I have called my stepmother “Auntie” since I was old enough to talk, and I am sick of it. I would like to call her by her first name like ' everybody else does.
J asked my dad if it would be OK, and he said, “No. It is disrespectful for children to call adults by their first name.” Abby, I don’t want to call her “Auntie” anymore.
What should I do? Sign me ...
CONFUSED 11-YEAR-OLD IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
DEAR CONFUSED: Your father is right. It is disrespectful for children to call adults by their first name unless the adult has asked the child to do so.
However, there might be a chance for you and your stepmother to become good pals.
Tell her that you would like to call her by another name; perhaps the two of you can work on it together. I think she would be flattered to be taken into your confidence.

DENVER (AP) — Timothy McVeigh’s defense team has been handed a potentially powerful trial weapon in a federal report criticizing the FBI’s handling of evidence in the Oklahoma City bombing, legal experts claim.
Whether McVeigh’s lawyers will able to introduce the report at trial remains an issue.
But even if the prosecution attempts to mute the problem by
purging its witness list of criticized FBI scientists, the defense could claim that the findings taint the entire investigation.
“As a defense attorney, you want to exploit that weakness and you want to make that weakness bigger than it really is,” said Jeffrey Pagliuca, a former public defender who teaches criminal law at the University of Denver.
