National Guardsmen on Wednesday rescued Thanksgiving travelers stranded on snow-covered highways after a deadly blizzard dumped more than a foot of snow in parts of Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. Major highways across western Texas that had been closed by snow drifts up to six feet deep began to reopen, but heavy snow and strong wind shut roads in western Kansas.

Two colonels, a lieutenant colonel and two command sergeants major were among the 12 U.S. soldiers killed last weekend in the crash of a Black Hawk helicopter northeast of Baghdad, the Pentagon said. It appeared to be the largest number of key officers and command sergeants killed in a single incident since the Iraq war started nearly four years ago. The helicopter went down Saturday in Diyala province, one of the volatile regions in the Iraq conflict.

It was the first public allegation that CBS News had used forged memos in its report questioning President Bush's Air National Guard service -- a highly technical explanation posted on the Web within hours of airtime, citing proportional spacing and font styles. But it did not come from an expert in typography or typewriter history, as some first thought. Instead, it was the work of Harry W.

The body of a ninth teen-ager was recovered Sunday from the Guadalupe River and the search continued for a youth who disappeared while helping others caught by a flash flood during a church camp trip. About 60 National Guardsmen and 100 law enforcement officials took part in the search, and ranchers and farmers along the river were asked to check the banks downriver, officials said.

Dan Rather's protracted legal fight with CBS ended Tuesday when New York state's highest court declined to hear the anchor's motion to reinstate his $70-million lawsuit against his longtime employer. Rather was hoping the court would breathe new life into his suit alleging breach of contract and fraud against CBS that a state appellate court had dismissed in September. But the Court of Appeals denied Rather's motion without comment. The decision came as muted denouement to what had been an expensive and at times ugly battle between the veteran newsman and the network that was his home for 44 years.

Heavy rain Monday in the San Antonio and Austin areas flooded streets, stranded cars and closed roads. Rising creeks and streams also threatened some homes, forcing residents to move to higher ground, authorities said. San Antonio police reported one death, after a vehicle was swept from a roadway. In New Braunfels, rescue crews evacuated 24 children from a day-care center. Flooding also shut down a large section of the city's downtown. Gov.

Re "Kerry's Own War Over Vietnam," July 5, on Sen. John Kerry and his combat record: First of all, he has one, unlike some others who denigrate his. As a veteran of World War II, I really don't care if Kerry spent his service time hiding in a corner of his river boat and got a Purple Heart for cutting his finger opening a can of C-rations. He served his country honorably in combat, and his record can testify to his daring and skill. Unlike some others, his service record has no mysterious gaps, and his commanders do remember him. Maybe he did use tactics "outside the book," but so did many other combat commanders, such as Gen. George S. Patton.

Janet Jackson did not attend the Oscars in body. But she was there in spirit, along with fellow absentees Mel Gibson, President Bush and other newsmakers who were the subjects of a safe brand of humor throughout the show. At this point, what more could be said about Jackson's Super Bowl halftime performance? Host Billy Crystal made a few good-natured attempts. In one segment, Crystal scolded Robin Williams, who kept tugging at the lapel of his tux to reveal his shirt.

Mexican authorities Thursday announced the arrest of a gang leader who allegedly directed the fatal car bomb attack in Ciudad Juarez last summer that stoked fears of a dangerous escalation in the drug war. Fernando Contreras Meraz, identified as a regional boss of an armed gang known as La Linea, was arrested Wednesday in the northern city of Chihuahua with 13 other suspects, federal police officials said. Contreras is accused of overseeing the July 15 blast that killed four people, including a police officer, on a busy Juarez street.
