Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Wednesday, November 16, 2005Despite beef ban, Bush on friendly terrain in Japan
KYOTO, japan (AP) — The mood will be celebratory when President Bush takes center stage in this ancient capital with Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, his closest ally in Asia.
The two leaders meet Wednesday amid apparent progress toward ending the two-year-old Japanese ban on U.S. beef imports that has been an irritant on the American side. And the two countries just announced an agreement to realign and reduce U.S. military forces in Japan, resolving an issue that had caused concern in Tokyo.
Bush and Koizumi were expected to keep under wraps a host of trickier matters, such as a growing trade deficit with Japan, Tokyo's reluctance to reduce the kind of farm subsidies that are holding up progress on a U.S.-backed global free-trade pact, and a recent Koizumi visit to a controversial shrine that has roiled relations between Japan and neighbors South Korea and China.
Koizumi earned Bush’s steadfast loyalty by staunchly backing the invasion of Iraq and making the unpopular decision to send noncombat troops there in January 2004. That mission is expected to expire next month, but Bush indicated before the trip that he wouldn’t press his friend for a decision on whether to extend it.
It is a sign of how highly regarded Koizumi is in the Bush White House that Japan is the only country the United States has specifically supported for a permanent seat on an expanded U.N. Security Council — something Tokyo badly wants.

TEEN ACCUSED OF DOUBLE SLAYING WAIVES EXTRADITION - A
Pennsylvania teen accused of killing his girlfriend's parents agreed to be returned to his home state Tuesday, a day after he and his 14-year-old girlfriend were arrested in Indiana after a police chase that ended in a crash.
I lendricks County Prosecutor Patricia Baldwin said David Ludwig, 18, signed documents at the county jail that clear the way for Pennsylvania authorities to take him to face murder charges there.
Ludwig left Indiana on a plane Tuesday afternoon to return to Pennsylvania.
Authorities have said it remains unclear whether Ludwigs girlfriend, Kara Beth Borden, had any role in her parents' killings.
Richard F. Garipoli Jr., police chief in Pennsylvania’s Warwick Township, where the shootings happened, said Tuesday that he
is treating the girl as a victim in the case “until I hear otherwise.”
“Kara’s upset; she’s crying. She’s a 14-year-old child, and we seem to forget that. Shes devastated. So its important that we do put her back with her family where she belongs,” Garipoli said.
JORDAN UNVEILS NEW ANTI-TERROR MEASURES FOLLOWING BOMBINGS -

The U.S. Embassy also said four Americans were among those killed in the attacks, raising the U.S. toll from three.CORRECTION

HUNTSVILLE (AP) — A habitual drug user was executed Tuesday for the slayings of two people at a I lous-ton crack house 12 years ago.
“I would like to apologize to the victims' family and all the grief I have caused them,” Robert Dale Rowell said in a brief final statement as the mother, sister and brother of one of his victims watched through a window.
“I would like to say I love the girls next to them,” he said, referring to six women
he selected to watch him die. Several of them sobbed. Then he said, “liaise the Lord, Let’s go warden. That’s it.”
Rowell, 50, snorted twice as the drugs began taking effect. I Ie was pronounced dead nine minutes later.
Rowell already had been to prison, where records showed he fatally stabbing a fellow inmate while serving a sentence for robbery, and was free under mandatory supervision when he was arrested for the shooting spree.
