WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two newspapers asked a federal judge Wednesday to make public several documents relating to a former Army scientist at Fort Detrick who was named as a person of interest in the 2001 anthrax attacks and later exonerated. The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times want the government's search warrants and supporting documents involving Stephen Hatfill, who was eventually cleared in the anthrax attacks and was awarded $5.8 million in a lawsuit accusing the Justice Department of violating his privacy.

Agent Orange testing at Fort Ritchie in the 1960s was conducted under controlled conditions using a diluted version of the herbicide and posed little risk to the surrounding community then or now, according to a scientist who has studied records of the testing. “The orange formulation was a very concentrated formulation, but you can dilute it when you put it on the vegetation, and that’s what happened at Fort Ritchie,” Alvin L. Young, an environmental toxicologist who compiled a 2006 report on testing of tactical herbicides by the U.S. Department of Defense, said Monday.

FORT RITCHIE - Col. David E. Titus, who formally took command of the 1108th U.S. Army Signal Brigade Tuesday, will spend his first three months preparing to move the unit that is in charge of the "red phone" to its new home at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md. That move will be one of the logistical challenges facing Army commanders as they wind down operations at Fort Ritchie, which will close in September. For Titus, preparing for the move won't be a new experience. In his last job as chief of the Plans and Operations Division of the U.S. Southern Command, Titus helped move the command headquarters from Panama to Miami.

Diane Koole met her husband, James "JJ" Koole Sr., over the Internet in 1999 and, after hitting it off, they decided to meet over breakfast in Frederick, Md.

Married on Valentine's Day 2002, the Kooles were living in Greencastle, Pa., when JJ Koole was killed Saturday in a two-vehicle accident near Myersville, Md., as he was coming home from work at Fort Detrick in Frederick.
