Archivist maps county grave sites

by Anastasia Mercer
Anita Doering has become an investigator of sorts, following tips and
trudging through the farms and woods of La Crosse County in hopes of finding
a gravestone or other marker indicating a burial site.
Although her official title is archivist for the La Crosse Public Library,
her co-workers call her the Cemetery Lady, because of the more than 500
miles she has put on her Jeep in an attempt to record and map every cemetery
in the county.

Paper trail suggests scientists used federal funds for DNA invention

Associated Press
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Researchers who developed a revolutionary
gene-sequencing machine say their invention was completed before federal
grants came in, but documents that show otherwise suggest the government has
rights to the device.
Federal officials are investigating whether California Institute of
Technology researchers, PE Corp. and other scientists credited with
inventing the device took federal funds and later failed to provide the U.S.
government with certain key rights as required under law.

National Archives Statement on Ore Samples Found in Army Records

COLLEGE PARK, Md., May 12 /U.S. Newswire/ -- On Tuesday, Feb. 1, the
Department of the Army discovered a sample of suspected uranium ore in a box
of records that had been recently transferred from the National Archives in
College Park, Md. On the following day, a second box containing another
suspected uranium ore sample was discovered. The materials were immediately
tested and ultimately contained and were determined not to present a health
or safety hazard to employees. No radioactivity was found in the processing
areas, on any of the staff who may have handled the records, or on the
outside of the boxes. A very small amount of radiation was detected on
direct examination of four envelopes containing ore samples.

Stasi files taken from journalist

BERLIN (AP) - German authorities have confiscated thousands of East German
spy agency bugging records that had been secretly kept by a journalist, the
federal prosecutors' office said Saturday.
Der Spiegel newsmagazine reported that the files from the so-called Stasi
contained the results of phone taps and other electronic surveillance on
West German politicians, including now-Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder. The
20,000 pages were the largest stash of Stasi files in private hands, the
magazine said.
