    PARIS — With tensions high across Paris, French authorities hunted Thursday for two heavily armed brothers they feared would strike again after the methodical killing of 12 people at a satirical newspaper that caricatured the Prophet Muhammad.

    France’s prime minister said the possibility of a new attack “is our main concern” and announced several overnight arrests as the country began a day of national mourning.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Let’s bring back annual ‘Rails and Trails’ days

    Distracted should be my middle name. This time I am looking through a box of old papers (mostly newspapers) and I find a copy of “The Valmora Sun” a monthly newspaper published by the tuberculosis patients at my old home, Valmora.

    This April 1939 copy has a historically fun advertisement on the back page.

    It is a full page ad (larger than 11 by 13) that reads: “Announcing... The First Annual American Legion Cowboy’s Reunion).
