MARTINSBURG, W.VA. ? Stephen R. Fielder's bid for a new trial or acquittal was denied Monday, meaning the Berkeley County attorney will be spending the rest of his life behind bars. "I believe there was ample evidence before the jury that there was malice in this case," 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge David H. Sanders said before telling Fielder, 59, that he would be incarcerated for the remaining years of his life and not be eligible for parole. Fielder was convicted of first-degree murder last month in the grisly death of his ex-wife.

Don't be fooled by the kid-friendly PG rating attached to "Rango. " Don't be fooled by the kid-friendly Nickelodeon Studios logo attached to the film. Don't be fooled by the ads that paint "Rango" as a kid-friendly animated film with a cute chameleon lead. "Rango" is not kid-friendly. Don't be fooled into taking your family to see it.   The film opens with an unnamed chameleon (voiced by Johnny Depp) living a life of contentment inside his terrarium. The terrarium is in the back of a car, the car hits a bump, the terrarium goes flying, it shatters and the chameleon is left stranded in a desert in the middle of nowhere.

Editor's note: This is part of an occasional series on children eating vegetables. The series explores ways to highlight a vegetable's flavor and appearance as a way to work around the resistance some picky eaters have to trying unfamiliar vegetables. I am OK with radishes. Really, I am. They have a peppery bite, a bright color and a pleasant crunch. But I've never really taken them seriously on their own. They always seemed like a side show - a garnish - to a salad or some other important dish.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN, Pa. -- "Welcome home, Drumm family. " The words that greeted the family of five on its return Friday from Walt Disney World held enormous meaning. That's because moments after "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" host Ty Pennington said them, the Drumms joined thousands of other people in chanting "move that bus" to reveal the house they hope will suit their needs for years to come. "It's still unreal," Blasia Drumm told Pennington as a half-dozen cameras filmed the scene.

Harley-Davidson has commemorated anniversaries before with special edition models, but I don't recall in recent history a specific model that celebrated its own anniversary. The Motor Company alters that history with the FLSTFI Fat Boy 15th Anniversary edition bike. Harley produced a limited number of Screamin' Eagle Fat Boys for the 2005 model year, but the 15th anniversary bike isn't a product of the Custom Vehicle Operation Screamin' Eagle lineup. Despite that fact, the 15th Anniversary Fat Boy is a limited edition bike that comes stock with a motor that's a full 100cc bigger - 1550cc to be exact.

It began with piece of junk mail. Because you were busy, you tossed it on a table, and moved on to other, more important things in your life. But the next day, a magazine and a store catalog landed there, plus several birthday cards from friends and a week's worth of newspapers. Every time you passed by, you considered sorting through the items and discarding what you didn't need. Instead, you continued adding to the pile, telling yourself you'd get around to straightening things up as soon as you had some free time.

Q: We moved into this home a couple of years ago, and it had several flowering vines growing on a variety of trellises. Some are falling apart and need to be replaced. I would like to cut some of the vines down, rebuild the trellises and let them grow back. I am afraid the vines will die or, if they survive, will not climb up the trellis. Is it OK to do this now, while they are dormant? How do I attach them to the trellis? A: Climbing vines want to go up. There are several methods that they use to attach themselves to vertical objects.

When David Warrenfeltz heard about the deaths of Williamsport High School sports standouts Brendon Colliflower and Samantha Kelly, he thought about how “eerily similar” the accident late Saturday on Rench Road was to the one that claimed his friend, Nick Adenhart. Warrenfeltz, coach of the Williamsport High School baseball team, was for years the catcher for Adenhart, who died along with two friends in a car accident April 9, 2009, in Fullerton, Calif., shortly after making his debut that year for the Los Angeles Angels.
