VANCOUVER – An undeveloped roll of film from 33 years ago with never-before-seen photos of Mount Saint Helens days before it erupted just resurfaced at The Columbian newspaper. The pictures are part of Northwest history and were taken before Columbian photographer Reid Blackburn died in the May 1980 eruption. Blackburn went up in an airplane to capture the images of the smoldering cauldron. A week later, Blackburn was killed in his vehicle while covering the eruption. The roll of film got lost in the newspaper’s archives before it was ever developed. This month, 33 years after the blast, photo archivist Linda Lute found

WEST READING, Pa. — A terminally ill girl who received support from thousands of Christmas carolers outside her home over the weekend died early on Christmas morning, her family said. Delaney Brown, 8, of West Reading "passed away quietly with her loving family by her side," family spokesman Christopher Winters said in a statement Wednesday. On Saturday night, thousands gathered outside her home in eastern Pennsylvania to fulfill her wish for a huge holiday singalong. The crowd cycled through holiday favorites such as "Frosty the Snowman," ´´Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer" and "Jingle Bells" and ended with a

Geopolitics: It´s always questionable when a nation that can´t keep its lights on goes on a military spending spree. So now Argentina has just launched a new space rocket to "recover" its defense capacity. This won´t end well. Last Friday, Argentina´s air force launched a research rocket connected to its space program that its defense minister called "a milestone," according to a report in Mercopress. What´s really going on, though, was spilled by Argentina´s defense minister, Agustin Rossi, who called it a "step toward the recovery of scientific-technological capabilities for defense" and hailed it as "of the utmost importance." If it isn´t

A piranha feeding frenzy in Argentina reportedly has left at least 70 people injured, including seven children who lost parts of their fingers and toes. The attack took place on Christmas morning off a beach in the Parana River, near the city of Rosario. Gustavo Centurion, a medical official, said the attack was “very aggressive,” according to Sky News. At least 70 people were injured, The Associated Press reports. Local newspaper La Capital reported that a 7-year-old girl had part of her finger amputated after suffering bites from the fish, which were described as a piranha cousin called palometas. Other swimmers suffered cuts to

Oliver Stone took the occasion of a trip to Venezuela to announce that he is officially working on a biographical film on the life of Hugo Chavez. With Stone working on such a project to praise such a "magnanimous, warm, warm man," we decided to get a head start on casting his sure to be slobbering homage of a film for him. Breitbart News has compiled a list of ideal actors to play the lead roles in Chavez´s life story, as told by longtime friend and ally Oliver Stone. Some are shoo-ins, some are risky newcomers, and some demand a surrealist

ObamaCare: After a public relations blitz targeting America´s youth, the results are in: The kids aren´t signing up. It´s not just the bad deal on offer that´s keeping them away. It´s also the White House´s tone of contempt. At a Dec. 6 event, one of Obama´s staunchest allies, Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., looked over a group of about 200 young, mostly Hispanic students at California State University, Los Angeles, and asked how many of them had signed up for ObamaCare. After no hands went up, he proceeded browbeat them about being potential burdens to "the rest of us taxpayers," adding: "You want to be invincible! And you're thinking you'll stay so.

Brenda Schmitz, a wife and mother of four boys, passed away from ovarian cancer in September 2011. A month before she died, Brenda wrote a letter to the Des Moines, Iowa, radio station “Star” 102.5. She asked a friend to wait to mail it until her husband, David, had fallen in love again. Every year, the station takes submissions for Christmas wishes, granting a select few. The station brought in David and surprised him by saying they had received a letter from his wife. “When you are in receipt of this letter, I will have already lost my battle to ovarian

More news on the Celebrities Who Perform For Dictators Beat! I wish this beat did not exist, but as long as celebrities insist on performing for dictators and plutocrat presidents-for-life, we are stuck. Please, celebrities, stop doing this! Latest on the list? Mariah Carey. In 2009, she serenaded Col. Moammar Gaddafi of Libya. More recently, she was in Angola, performing at what must have been one of the less cost-effective Red Cross benefit concerts ever, when you contrast her performance fee with the amount of funds it raised. Mariah Carey performed at a benefit last weekend for the Angolan Red Cross — raising

Friends, relatives and business associates of Tajikistan´s president are driving around in cars stolen off Germany´s streets, according to the German government. German authorities have been attempting to raise the issue with Tajik officials since at least May, they confirmed Thursday after a German tabloid broke the story. It is unclear from reports whether President Imomali Rakhmon is suspected of personally driving a stolen German car. But German investigators have reportedly traced about 200 stolen luxury cars, including 93 BMWs, to members of Rakhmon´s inner circle and associates of his family. Berlin´s regional justice minister raised the issue with the German foreign

The health secretary of the state of Miranda, Gustavo Villasmil, reported on Friday on the first case of malaria in 25 years in Barlovento. "It is a 31-year-old female patient residing in a community called Brión Avanza in the municipality of Brión." Villasmil claimed that the case has no direct relation with the outbreak in the rest of the country. "We are aware of the malaria cases in the states of Sucre, Bolívar, Anzoátegui, southern Monagas, Zulia, and Táchira. However, this patient has not come out of the state. So we may say that the disease was contracted in the community..."

When Congressman Dana Tyrone Rohrabacher moved into a four-bedroom, four-bathroom, million-dollar Costa Mesa rental home on April Fool´s Day 2010, the immaculate, 6,300-square-foot property could have been featured in a glossy real-estate magazine. Built in 1948, the two-story, Orange Avenue home had been updated in recent years for comfort and style. The carpeting was new, appliances worked and walls were spotless. Thriving flowers, plants and grass adorned the idyllic back yard less than 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean. But it´s now understandable why Orange County´s senior, career politician secretly changed the locks and refused to allow homeowner Robert Polyniak inside

Geopolitics: Russia´s Vladimir Putin bought himself a country this week, handing out a $15 billion bailout with cheap gas on the side to Ukraine to keep it out of a trade pact with the European Union. No, it won´t work. There was no doubt cash-strapped Ukraine was going to get the $15 billion it needed to make it through the winter. With foreign reserves below $19 billion, it needed cash from somewhere, or it would become the next Greece. The International Monetary Fund and the European Union had been working on a bailout package for the cash-strapped state, and had it nearly

Jesse Jackson has decided to weigh in on the inflammatory comments that Phil Robertson made to GQ about gays and African Americans. In an interview with Drew Magary, the "Duck Dynasty" star said the Nazis needed Jesus, that he never saw the mistreatment of African Americans while growing up in Louisiana before the civil rights era and that homosexuality was a sin. A&E has already suspended Robertson, but Reverend Jackson, his Rainbow PUSH Coalition and GLAAD are demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel´s CEO, to discuss the future of all "Duck Dynasty" memorabilia or content.

WASHINGTON -Michelle Obama has had enough. According to a bombshell new report, the First Lady and Barack Obama are sleeping in separate White House bedrooms. Michelle is also preparing to boot her hubby of 21 years out of their ritzy Chicago home - and seriously discussing divorce. “The smart money says the marriage is doomed,” a source told the National Enquirer. “Barack and Michelle have had a rocky go for years and mainly stayed together for their daughters and his political career. “But now Michelle is mad AS hell.

Obamacare as written is already gone, dismantled by its namesake. Obamacare itself has not, strictly speaking, collapsed of its own weight. Rather, it has been changed from its original, unworkable form first by Chief Justice John Roberts and then by the president into some new, unworkable mishmash. Obamacare per se is already gone. The question remains whether the law in some form will remain or whether the 2016 contest will be about what sort of plan replaces Obamacare. The latter is the odds-on favorite. David Brooks on “Meet the Press” yesterday predicted (correctly, in my view) further undoing of the

Disposable: Paul Ryan´s Budget Epitomizes

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) wants to look tough on budget issues. In an editorial published in USA Today explaining his decision to lead the passage of a budget that reduced vested veteran pensions by an average of $84,000 to $120,000, Mr. Ryan founded his message on the urgent need to “do the right thing.” In doing so, he created a painful irony; Ryan’s budget seeks to save $6B over the next 10 years – equivalent to less than six-tenths of one percent of projected federal spending over that period — by extracting it from compensation already guaranteed to people who earned it risking their lives and defending their country. In other words, despite

Duck Dynasty gave me an unexpected wonderful gift for Christmas: a renewed hope in America. Polling on various social issues confirm that liberals have made significant inroads towards secularizing America into a culture in which anything goes. The norm on TV is disrespectful kids scolding their parents, cussing, youths sleeping around, the promotion of homosexuality, and poking fun at Christians. Traditional principles and values are on the chopping block. Several months ago, I heard about this cable show, Duck Dynasty, that was kicking American Idol´s butt in the ratings on Wednesday nights.

A virulent form of ransomware has now infected about quarter of a million Windows computers, according to a report by security researchers. Cryptolocker scrambles users´ data and then demands a fee to unencrypt it alongside a countdown clock. Dell Secureworks said that the US and UK had been worst affected. It added that the cyber-criminals responsible were now targeting home internet users after initially focusing on professionals. The firm has provided a list of net domains that it suspects have been used to spread the code, but warned that more are being generated every day. Ransomware has existed since at least 1989,

Sen. Richard Blumenthal is calling on United Parcel Service to refund customers who sent packages and gifts that failed to reach their destinations before Christmas. A rash of bad weather and a rush of last-minute online orders caught postal and package delivery services off guard, meaning that thousands of packages that were supposed to be delivered before Christmas didn´t arrive on time. "I am disappointed to learn that so many consumers in Connecticut and across the country made purchases this holiday season expecting their gifts to arrive in time for Christmas, but instead were left empty-handed," the Connecticut Democrat said.

Turns out Sarah Palin, who has been one of Duck Dynasty’s biggest defenders, hasn’t actually read the GQ interview that includes cast member Phil Robertson’s controversial comments on homosexuality and other subjects. When pressed by Fox News host Greta Van Susteren whether the language Robertson used when talking about his opposition to homosexuality was graphic and offensive, Palin admitted she didn’t know what Robertson had said. “I haven’t read the article. I don’t know exactly how he said it,” Palin said Monday on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

The military-backed interim Egyptian government has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group after blaming it for a deadly attack on a police HQ earlier this week. The group, whose candidate Mohammed Morsi won the presidential poll last year before being deposed by the military, had already been outlawed. Thousands of its supporters have been arrested in a crackdown. [Snip] Deputy Prime Minister Hossam Eissa announced the move, which will give the authorities more power to crack down on the Brotherhood. He said that those who belonged to the group, financed it or promoted its activities would face punishment.

On Christmas Eve, the Obama administration announced yet another Obamacare enrollment extension on its HealthCare.gov blog for anyone who claims to have missed the myriad sign-up deadlines due to problems with the website. The New York Times called the announcement "vague" and noted that "it was not clear on Tuesday how many people would be affected, or how consumers would prove that website errors had prevented them from signing up by the deadline on Tuesday night." The Obama administration announcement also failed to note when the "special enrollment period" would cease; however, White House

It had never happened before. When big, powerful TV executives ask a star to apologize for what they deem inappropriate comments or behavior, the star simply complies. A team of publicists is assembled, the star does the obligatory apology tour for the press and promises never to do or say what he did or said again. Ever. But the TV gods never met a man like Phil Robertson. Or his family. When they decided to place the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan on a non-suspension suspension for his comments to a GQ magazine writer about homosexuality, the executives at A&E
