The female collared wolf was shot Saturday as it was eating one of the chickens it had killed. Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokeswoman Andrea Jones says the shooting was justified in part because the animal had failed to respond to efforts to drive it away from populated areas.

FLOWERS Philadelphia Daily News. Perhaps the man whose heart is pierced by a sword would disagree that the pen is mightier, and there are indeed some pens that spill worthless ink.
But by and large, words are powerful currency in the marketplace of freedom. We only have to look back over the last 50 years, five eventful decades filled with anger and jubilation, riot and reconciliation, trespass and redemption.
The struggle that started well before Martin Luther King Jr. Words of triumph. Words of fury. Words of defiance.
Words like those written by the great American, Langston Hughes. This was a fierce yet simple voice that spoke on behalf of the silent millions who saw their dreams deferred if not dashed on the rocks of a racist reality.
But here is the legal poetry that began to snap the chains of bondage, from Brown v. Board of Education:.
Here is the apology of a Baptist minister, W. Police lead a group of black schoolchildren to jail after their arrests for protesting against racial discrimination near city hall in Birmingham, Ala.
The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law, for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the negro group.
King gave his speech at the Mall. We will reach the goal of freedom in Birmingham, and all over the nation, because the goal of America is freedom.
Abused and scorned though we may be, our. At the core of Dr. How consistent King himself was as he confronted the various issues of his time is a question that can be left for historians.
What was historic about that speech was not only what was said but how powerfully its message resonated among Americans of that time, across the spectrum of race, ideology and politics.
A higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats voted in Congress for both the Civil Rights Act of and the Voting Rights Act of To say that that was a hopeful time would be an understatement.
To say that many of those hopes have since been disappointed would also be an understatement. There has been much documented racial progress since But there has also been much retrogression, of which the disintegration of the black family has been central, especially among those at the bottom of the social pyramid.
Many people — especially politicians and activists — want to take credit for the economic and other advancement of blacks, even though a larger proportion of blacks rose out of poverty in the 20 years before than in the 20 years afterward.
But no one wants to take responsibility for the policies and ideologies that led to the breakup of the black family, which had survived centuries of slavery and generations of discrimination.
Many hopes were disappointed because those were unrealistic hopes to begin with. Even when those who lagged behind have advanced, they have not always caught up, even after centuries, because others were advancing at the same time.
But when blacks did not catch up with whites in America, within a matter of decades, that was treated as strange — or even a sinister sign of crafty and covert racism.
Civil rights were necessary, but far from sufficient. Education and job skills are crucial, and the government cannot give you these things.
All it can do is make them available. Race hustlers who blame all lags on the racism of others are among the obstacles to taking the fullest advantage of education and other opportunities.
What does that say about the content of their character? Instead, it provoked all sorts of new demands. The nation has just been through a sensationalized murder trial in Florida, on which many people took fierce positions before a speck of evidence was introduced, basing themselves on nothing more than judging those involved by the color of their skin.
We have a long way to go to catch up to what King said 50 years ago. And we are moving in the opposite direction. Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA His column appears each Wednesday in the Missoulian.
My father, who traveled south to Mississippi in the year before King was assassinated, kept a journal. The expression on their faces mirrored an intense hatred of us personally, and of everything we stood for.
Even the small children seemed to wish us dead. It made me feel ill to know that there were people in America who differed very little, in my.
A few months later, three young boys would be murdered in Philadelphia, Miss. Four years later, King would die at the hands of a man who thought he could stop the freedom train with a bullet.
But those words, and all of these words, were more powerful than any gun, or water hose, or flaming cross. Like the human spirit, they are eternal.

One newsroom was attacked by gunfire three times. A hand grenade exploded in another. Cartel leaders dictated the stories that they required newspapers to publish.
She recounted one story in which a reporter in Veracruz received word that he was on a hit list. A colleague asked how she could help. The reporter asked for a pistol.
Citizen reporters have tried to fill the gap, posting YouTube videos and establishing websites such as Valor por Tamaulipas.
But cartel leaders target them, too, and soon the silence returns. But as Turati admonished her colleagues in San Antonio, we must not accept silence as the final answer.
Most of all, we must never forget. Make no mistake about the motives behind these threats and attacks: The drug cartels recognize that news reports help alert the public about the criminal menace in their midst.
News media scrutiny puts pressure on state and local authorities to crack down, which is especially embarrassing if those officials are secretly colluding with the cartels.
By silencing journalists, the cartels gain a much freer hand to do their dirty work. In America, press freedoms often are taken for granted because U.
In Mexico, reporters have been tortured and beheaded. Prosecutions are rare, which adds to the sense of impunity. In Tamaulipas alone, 12 journalists in the Dallas Morning News on Monday.
With new leaders at both NARAL Pro-Choice Montana and at Planned Parenthood of Montana, we have an amazing opportunity to educate the public and legislators on what it means to be prochoice and why it is so important to ensure that privacy and individual freedoms are secure in our state.
As a leader of the reproductive justice movement, I would like to clarify what it truly means to be pro-choice. First, being pro-choice means we believe that everyone should have access to all reproductive health options — this includes access to birth control, infertility treatments, sterilization, and, yes, abortion.
However, being pro-choice also means advocating for preventative techniques that reduce the need for abortion.
This means believing in access to affordable birth control and family planning resources, as well as honest and accurate sex education for young people.
It is through these techniques, as well as advocating healthy relationships and reducing sexual violence against women, that we will reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, making abortion rare.
When faced with an unintended pregnancy, the decision to parent, adopt, or terminate the pregnancy is an incredibly private and personal one — one that should be made only by a woman with counsel from her family, loved ones, and physician — not politicians.
This is what being prochoice truly means. As I begin my tenure here in Montana, I will work consistently to bring these prochoice beliefs from the public to the legislature.
We must ensure that. My goal is to grow our dynamic cadre of activists from all backgrounds and provide them with a direct line to the elected officials who represent them.
I also strive to ensure that every young person has comprehensive, medically accurate sex education, which includes information on sexuality, gender identit, and healthy relationships.
In short, my goal is to ensure that every Montanan has access to affordable reproductive health care, is fully informed of their choices and has the freedom to plan their family how they see fit.
Lofty goals, yes; but, I am certainly not alone in the fight. I would like to thank the Montana Reproductive Rights Coalition for their commitment to reproductive justice and support of NARAL Pro-Choice Montana in the past and into the future.
Organizations like Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana, Blue Mountain Clinic, the Montana Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, Montana Human Rights Network and the ACLU of Montana bring important perspectives and enthusiasm for our goals.
I am honored to be a part of such an amazing team. I am committed to working alongside our allies throughout the state on issues of reproductive justice.

He mentioned several corporations that are experiencing flagging sales and two or three where sales figures are up. Just as a thought, perhaps more Americans are shopping at thrift stores.
These stores, often owned and operated by charities, sell merchandise for considerably less than the stores mentioned by Lewis.
Many items sold in the thrift stores are new, and there no longer seems to be a stigma attached to shopping at these stores.
The typewriter ribbon cost less than a dollar at Goodwill. My last two swimsuits, purchased new, cost 89 cents each. The various dollar stores often have good buys.
George Sherry, Missoula. Nothing could be further from the truth; want to prove it to yourself? The reply, if you even get one, will be political double speak, a non committal statement or a form letter.

They have passed bills without reading them, voted for unpopular amendments, advocated use of the IRS to intimidate and mislead the people of Montana.

In large part due to this history, our Constitution requires separation of state and religion. If you are old enough, think back to the concern raised that the Pope would run our country if JFK was elected.
The purpose of this separation is NOT the persecution of Christians as Chaberek clams, but was intended by our founders to allow multiple forms of religion without government intervention, such as Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist, Unitarian, etc.
Second: a little research into the Planned Parenthood organization will reveal to Chaberek that only approximately one third of its funding is from the U.
Government, which by law, cannot be used for abortion. Planned Parenthood dispenses health advice, some of which include the options available to pregnant women — one of these is abortion.

But the Leg- islature's self-proclaimed largesse in raising school spending relies on a familiar, if tiring, shell game.
That increase does nothing to replace a state-man- dated cut in district millage rates for capital projects.
Building up a reserve against an inevitable future economic downturn isn't a terrible thing, but lawmakers' crowing about their commitment to education while merely raising school funding to below previous levels and doing so through local school districts is cynical at best.
In the end, all of the tax money comes from taxpayers, but the key difference is sales taxes are paid one drip at a time, and are augmented by visitor spending, while property taxes arrive like a wave.
The difference is the reduction in state funding. The district's RLE millage rate actually will fall by. A preliminary estimate of property values will be released by the Charlotte County Property Appraiser in June and a final figure, based on values as of Jan.
Meanwhile, district budget officials will tally up expenses and revenues from the fiscal year to determine what's left in the budget pot.
Another wild card in the budgeting process will be student population. While surrounding counties have seen student numbers rise in recent years as the economy improved, Charlotte County is projected to lose anoth- er students when school starts in August.
Student numbers are a double-edged sword, with increas- es allowing the district to spread out its fixed costs among more students, but at certain levels requiring it to hire more teachers to meet class size requirements.
Falling student counts do the opposite. Between and today, the number of students has fallen from 18, to 16,, according to district Director of Information Services JohnWeant.

Editor: One writer recently made several interesting and legiti- mate points in a letter of May 1. The Vostok ice core samples and other indicators do indeed demonstrate an interestingly cyclical series of carbon dioxide peaks and rising temperatures.
The point is not that they will inevitably happen again, the point is that we are accelerating the next peak. We have consumed and continue to so do what it has taken millions of years to create, our fossil fuels.
We have done this over the past century and a half when it comes to petroleum and natural gas, coal a bit longer.
We have been living in an extended period of benign weather. Solar storms, meteors, volcanic eruptions and tec- tonic plate shifts, causing both earthquakes and tsunamis, are indeed beyond our ability to control, although we are getting better at anticipating their incipiency.
Sort of makes one wonder about what kind of beneficent creator deity thought this system up. My only question is what will replace us at the top of the food chain after our species comes to a premature end?
Unfortunately, we are also prematurely hastening the end of many other species in the process. From dust we were created and to dust we will surely return.

Attendant to these events is also the annual handwringing about the dinner's value. Those questioning, of course, are the media, who create the problem, then examine the problem, then suggest ways to solve the problem that we don't really believe is a problem and then go on to repeat the problem.
The rest of the world couldn't care less about the dinner except perhaps to note thatWashington is out of touch with regular Americans and that journalists are too schmoozy with official- dom.
Most journalists would agree, but who would want to miss the scholarship awards? Oh, you didn't know about those? What we all hate most is the attendance of so many celebri- ties, who undermine the noble purpose of this convocation.
Moreover, they tend to make journalists, who have spent considerable time looking their red-carpet best, feel like last week's tulips.
Hence, the popular de- scription ofWashington as "Hollywood for Ugly People," and the dinner as the "Nerd Prom. The buzz-killer crowd, however, is quickly forgotten once inside, where an avenue of cameras and lights awaits stars passing along the red carpet.
Note to future newbies: Your entrance is upstairs. Otherwise, you risk a probable humiliation that the lights will suddenly go dark and your grand entrance becomes a soul-killing walk of shame past a gantlet of fish-eyed fans of other people.
This experience can be helpful, on the other hand, as you summon the requisite pose of perpetual self-awareness. Your thinking should follow this vein: It's not that you want to go to the dinner.
It's your job to go. Whither goes the president, so go the media. And of course, the media did invite him, as well as all those celebrities we find so disruptive.
There's a circularity to all of this that suggests an apt metaphor. Another handy prompt to self-awareness is being grid- locked among 2, overheated people in long gowns and tuxedos as one tries to funnel one's way toward the escalator to the pre-party area.
Standing shoulder to shoulder with cab- inet members and screen stars reminds us that no matter one's station in life, we all perspire the same.
Almost no one present will fail to note his or her ambigu- ity toward the dinner and the parties that most are dying to attend.
There are exceptions to this club-think, notably The NewYork Times and Tom Brokaw. The Times stopped sending its staffers several years ago, saying the media shouldn't be partying with people it covers.
Brokaw made headlines when he protested the celebrity-driven nature of the evening, specifi- cally following Lindsay Lohan's overshadowing presence the year before last.
He lamented that the purpose of the evening -to allow journalists and politi- cians to mingle in a lighthearted, relaxed environment had been hijacked.
He was right about the Lohan spectacle. I was standing nearby visiting with Lohan's hostess, GretaVan Susteren, when none other than Rick Santorum brought his daughters for a snapshot with the starlet.
Brokaw is also right about the superficiality and misplaced emphasis of the evening. For this reason, many of us, includ- ingVan Susteren, swear we'll never go again.
But since most of us do attend again, I hoped Brokaw might relent and asked him to be my date this year.
With his usual blunt charm, he described in delicious detail why he would never again darken the door of the correspondents' dinner.
Feeling shallow and contrite before such superior standards, I feebly offered that I agreed completely, but, you see, I had this dress. Thus, as you are my witness, I vow never again.
At least until next time or Brokaw wears a dress. Kathleen Parker is a columnist for the Orlando Sentinel. Readers may reach her at kathleen parker washpost.

Our Town Page 10 C www. We have much to celebrate, beginning with two record years that saw double-digit increases in revenue generated by visitors to our state.
More than 94 million visitors enjoyed Florida's beach- es, waterways, nature and attractions in Statewide, we are on target to reach Gov.
Rick Scott's goal of million by the end of this year. Charlotte County also reaped the benefits of the strongest two years in Florida tourism's history.
Local tourism devel- opment taxes realized gains of up to 21 percent in , making it our best year on record. Some vacation rental management companies reported being sold out for the season as early as October of last year.
High occupancies in adjacent counties contributed to our success as tourists who could not find accommodations in Fort Myers or Sarasota sought lodging here.
The nearly exponen- tial growth of Allegiant airline's flights into Punta Gorda also boosted tourism. In , Allegiant added flights from five airports and another 12 in Flights added from three destinations in Portsmouth, Columbus and Cincinnati brought the total to This big change in the direct accessibility to our desti- nation from midwestern and northern cities has exposed hundreds of thousands of people to our area who might not otherwise have known it was here.
In the first quarter of , almost 74, passengers came through the Punta Gorda airport; in the first quar- ter of , that number more than doubled to , Many of these new visitors are finding that Charlotte County lodg- ing, attractions, services and dining offer some of the best values on the southwestern Gulf Coast.
Those who favor a true "Old Florida" feel over condo canyons, who seek out natural beaches and abundant wildlife, are finding Charlotte County to be ideal.
This growth has many positive impacts. Revenue generated by tourism is not limited to hotels and vacation rentals.
It spills over to gas stations, restaurants, drugstores, shopping centers, movie theaters, boutiques, fishing guides, Realtors, doctors people on vacation still need health care and so much more.
Add to that the many products and services required to support the industry: pool service, lawn care, furniture sales, linens, food and beverages, cleaning supplies, maintenance supplies, bait stores, marine supplies, boat rentals and you can begin to see just how deeply tourism is embedded in the economic fiber of our community.
Growth also comes with challenges. As the person responsible for guiding tourism devel- opment in Charlotte County, I struggle, as do many of my industry colleagues, with growing tourism while still main- taining the quality of life we all enjoy here and the quality of our amazing ecosystem.
What we have is incredibly special. If we resist the temptation to overdevel- op, if we strive to always honor and preserve the natural product we are so blessed to have in abundance, within a very few years people will pay a premium to enjoy it.
We will be one of the last remaining natural areas on the Florida coastline. I have always said, "In a free country, you can't stop development, so the question is more what kind of develop- ment will you have?
You can find sunshine anywhere in Florida, but what we have here is rare. It is why people come to vacation and, very often as a result, to live.
If it is compromised, so is our quality of life. Yes, tourism is the gas that fuels our economy.
However, it should not be our sole focus. We also need low-impact, clean industries that reduce our reliance on tourism.
A diverse economy is a healthy economy. Tom Patton, Charlotte County's economic de- velopment director, and his staff are doing a good job filling that need.
As we celebrate tour- ism week, I am grateful for the economic bless- ings tourism has brought to Charlotte County, par- ticularly in the wake of a historic and very painful recession.
At the same time, I am hopeful we can all work together and grow our economy in a way that protects and preserves those things which make our county the very special place I have grown to love.

City Council to discuss capital improvements An integral part of the city's annual budget process is preparation of a five-year capital improvements program that highlights infrastructure, fleet and equipment needs.
What is evident from the in- formation is the signif- icant funding shortfall that will occur once the 1 percent local option sales tax sunsets on Dec.
If not renewed, the city will have to des- ignate an alternative rev- enue source, such as the property tax, if it wishes to accomplish elements of the five-year program.
The proposed CIP will be presented at today's council meeting. Sales tax A resolution to support extension of the tax also will be discussed at today's meeting, as well as projects to be funded by the tax over an eight-year period.
Charlotte County is considering asking the voters to extend the tax over eight years instead of six years, in order to fund improvements to the Justice Center.
In that vein, a list of poten- tial projects previously considered by the city's steering committee will be revisited by City Council.

Paint Your Heart Out Punta Gorda was a collabora- tive effort among Team Punta Gorda, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity, Comcast and the city.
What is known to very few are the hours of prep work on these properties in the days leading up to the event. Minor repairs were done, windows were caulked and the homes scraped and pressure washed.
These critically important projects were accomplished by several local builders and contractors who donated their time, talent and materials.
Team volun- teers took care of trim- ming the shrubs around the homes as needed. Without the participation of these local businesses we could never have ac- complished this project.

An Associated Press analysis of traffic deaths and U. The industry acknowl- edges the problem, and traffic agencies and oil companies say they are taking steps to improve safety.

And the field is set! SERENA MARIA SIMONA PETRA ANA GENIE AGA CARO. BEIJING, China - Maria Sharapova conjured up some of her three-setter magic in the final of the China Open on Sunday, rallying past Petra Kvitova for the Premier Mandatory-level title, , , Watch highlights, interviews and more video from Beijing right here on wtatennis.
Sharapova cruised through to the final without dropping a set, and after tucking the first set away with no drama, it looked as though that trend was going to continue.
But the No. The No. You don't always quite get a good rhythm. She goes for a lot of shots, very deep, and she's a very good, confident player.
It's probably the toughest opponent you can face in a final, that's had that success, yet you just want to focus on your side, what you do best.
I think I took a few too many steps back and let her play that way. But I was able to lift my game again in the third and come out with a win.
I just didn't end up with a positive result. Within the time frame of only a couple of days until my first round here, I just had to settle down a bit.
Sometimes it just takes a few little things to change things around - maybe some of those results ultimately get you to this position.
Serena Williams leads the tour with six. Additionally, the Russian will rise from No. Kvitova was probably a little tired on the day - she went all the way to the title in Wuhan last week and extended that unbeaten run to the final here - but she was as gracious a runner-up as ever.
It was small things and small points that made the difference in the end. I had some chances, but Maria just didn't let them go. And we played two and a half, so I hope the fans enjoyed it too.
Kei Nishikori captured his second Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships title on Sunday to further improve his chances of becoming the first Asian player to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals next month.
Nishikori defeated fellow London hopeful Milos Raonic, the same player he beat for the Tokyo title, 5 , , under a closed roof at the Ariake Colosseum.
The final lasted two hours and 13 minutes. Nishikori is currently No. Raonic is placed at No. Five of the eight singles spots remain up for grabs at the prestigious season finale, to be held at The O2 in London from November.
Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have booked their places. These next few weeks will be really important for me.
Benneteau last week. Four of his seven trophies have come in If I had lost the tie-break, I might have screwed up the whole match.
He started aggressively and I think it was one of my toughest games against Milos. I am really happy to win.
He had a lot of chances in the third set; he almost broke my serve a couple of times. After the US Open, it was hard to maintain my motivation.
We have practised more on the court and also physical work. Beating a few Top 10 guys over the past year has helped my confidence.
Against Kei, he just played better when it came down to the third set [in ]. I have felt I have always been in the thick of things the past two years, so I would say two years ago was more disappointing.
Raonic approached the net, striking down the line, but Nishikori reacted quickly to whip a forehand crosscourt winner into space to clinch the minute set.
Raonic responded by playing closer to the baseline. But Nishikori was soon under pressure again. Two points later, Nishikori struck a backhand into the net to give Raonic hit first service break.
Raonic lost five of his service points in the minute second set. Team NishikoriIn the decider, it was Nishikori who applied pressure. Ten thousand spectators in the Ariake Colosseum celebrated his win.
Nishikori was in tears when he hugged his coach, Michael Chang. At the beginning, the match was passing by really quick, but in the second and third set it was really good.
He has been playing with a lot of confidence, he went for his shots and it paid off. Kei has, consistently over the past few weeks, also played at a high level.
The match was high quality and I look forward to the next challenge in Shanghai. I need to turn up there with the right attitude and fight again.
World No. The Serb has not dropped a set all week in adding to the trophies he won in d. Cilic , d. Ferrer , d. Tsonga and d. Top seed Djokovic looked on course for a double bagel scoreline as he served for the match at in the second set.
But Berdych, having already offered his racquet to a ball kid in desperation, dug in to restore some pride before Djokovic served out victory at the second attempt in 67 minutes.
Especially against Tomas, who has a big game and is already an experienced player. It was , in under an hour. Everything I tried worked.
To be proud of the performance is the least I can say of how I played tonight. But with this kind of performance and with this domination result-wise, I mean it's never happened.
The year-old Berdych had been chasing valuable points in the Emirates ATP Race To London. The Czech is up to No.
There is really not much I can add to that because, really, I was just swept off the court. But I have never, ever experienced anything like that.Tennis - ATP - J r my Chardy met un terme sa saison sur le circuit ATP Sur son compte Instagram, J r my Chardy a annonc ce vendredi qu'il Tennis - ATP - Anvers - Anvers: la grosse col re de Karen Khachanov, limin par Dan Evans.
