News Around The World
Jury deadlocks on death penalty
NEW YORK (AP) — A follower of Osama bin Laden received life in prison without parole on Tuesday in the deadly bombing of the U.S. embassy in Kenya after a jury deadlocked amid concerns that imposing a death penalty would create a martyr.
After five days of deliberations, jurors said they couldn’t agree Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-'Owhali deserved to die for his role in the Aug. 7, 1998,
attack on the embassy at Nairobi that killed 213 people and wounded thousands.
“I’m disappointed,” said Ellen Bonier, a career government employee blinded in the explosion, who was in court. “If ever there was a person who needed to be put to death, this is the one.”
Bush takes first overseas trip
MADRID, Spain (AP) — At odds with allies, President Bush opened his first overseas trip Tuesday declaring there is
“much more that unites us than divides us” despite a European rebuff on global warming and glaring differences on missile defenses and the death penalty.
Promising to work for common ground, the president said, “I refuse to let any issue isolate America from Europe, because Europe is too important for America’s future.”
Teen pregnancy rate hits new low
WASHINGTON (AP) — The teen pregnancy rate hit a
record low in 1997, with births falling fast and abortions falling even faster.
Experts credit long-lasting birth control, programs that encourage teens to postpone sex and a strong economy that gives them better opportunities.
In 1997, about 9.4 percent of all girls ages 15 to 19 became pregnant — a total of 872,000 pregnancies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday. Fifty-five percent gave birth,
29 percent had abortions and the rest miscarried.
“Elvis” (a.k.a. Robert Morano with the United States Post Office in New Braunfels) has been sighted around town, including at the Landa Park train, in preparation for the upcoming tribute to “The King” on June 22 at the Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre. Morano is serving as a “stand-in” for Rick Cavender who will perform as Elvis Presley.

Save $5 per person for adult tickets by buying them in advance for $20. Tickets sold the night of the show will be $25.
