An interim final rule published in the Federal Register and effective immediately will amend regulations to the U.S. Small Business Administration's Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program, allowing for greater access to federal contracting opportunities for women-owned businesses as a result of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 signed in January. The interim final rule removes the anticipated award price of the contract thresholds for women-owned small businesses, or WOSB, and economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses, or EDWOSB, to allow them greater access to federal contracting opportunities without limitations to the size of the contract.   The rule can be accessed at www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-05-07/html/2013-10841.htm , and comments can be submitted on or before June 6 at www.regulations.gov , identified by the code RIN 3245-AG55.

Dirty, stinky uniforms are all part of the realism David Scofield is striving for in his impression of a Confederate soldier fighting at the Battle of Antietam. By that point in the war, soldiers were camping campaign-style, meaning they had only what they could carry with them, said Scofield, 34, of Yakima, Wash. That's why he sleeps under a shebang - a piece of fabric stretched between trees in the woods - instead of in a field tent, he said. The soldiers' uniforms were well-worn by then, said Scofield, who tries to keep true to that aspect by not washing his uniforms between wearings.

There was an interesting story in The New York Times this week that demonstrated how fast rumors can fly on the Web, and how large numbers of people can be duped with small amounts of fact. The article is about a company called Uniprime Capital Acceptance Inc., a small car dealership in Las Vegas, whose stock back in January was worth about 25 cents a share. Last month, Uniprime announced that it was acquiring another car dealership, but traders yawned at the news and the stock was unaffected.

I have, as the mother of a young man who was homosexual. He was also smart, funny, caring and much loved. Bob was terrified as he reached puberty and found that his natural instincts were not what most of us consider "normal. " He confided his fears and it became our family project throughout his teenage years to "cure" him. We went so far as to take him for psychiatric counseling and even forced him to sign a "never, never contract.

Norrington and others were taking advantage of the county's second annual Pro Bono/Law Day, getting free legal advice on about two dozen topics, including family, immigration, consumer, bankruptcy, foreclosure, motor vehicle, business and criminal law, said Assistant State's Attorney Michele Hansen, who helped organize the event.
