TEHRAN (Reuters) Former President Mohammad Khatami, who pushed for detente with the West when in office from 1997 to 2005, said on Sunday he would run for the presidency again in June's election. The race will offer a stark choice for voters between Khatami and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose first four years in office have witnessed a sharp deterioration in ties with the West as tensions over Iran's nuclear work mounted. The West accuses Iran of seeking to build nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran denies, insisting its aim is to make electricity. sanctions. approach to engage Iran, saying he would extend a hand of peace if the Islamic Republic would "unclench its fist". Some analysts say Washington may wait until the June result before spelling out any offer in detail. Iran, meanwhile, has set tough conditions for opening any dialogue, a move seen as a bid to buy time in part because of the pending vote. Khatami worked for detente abroad and for political and social change at home while in office. But hardliners in charge of major levers of power in the Islamic Republic blocked many of his reforms, costing Khatami some key supporters. Ahmadinejad has faced mounting criticism over his economic management and surging inflation, which climbed to almost 30 percent last year. Reformists, in particular, say his fiery foreign policy speeches have further isolated Iran. Any bid by Khatami is likely to polarise the race, in which others have already declared, and may encourage conservatives to unite to prevent a reformist winning even though some of them have also criticised Ahmadinejad. Ultimately any decision on policy in Iran lies with the supreme leader not the president. Ahmadinejad may be able to call on the backing of Iranians in poorer and particularly rural areas where the impact of his spending has been most obvious, analysts say, although they add that his largesse is why prices have climbed so fast. Although many of Khatami's reforms were blocked, such as a law to ease press restrictions, the media did become more vibrant during Khatami's term even if many newspapers were banned and some social strictures did loosen. But some of Khatami's main supporters became disillusioned by the end of his presidency, saying he should have done more to push through change. And students, who were once at the vanguard of the reform movement, have now largely fallen silent. Iranian presidents can serve two consecutive four year terms but must then step down. They can run again at a later date.

Sometimes they texted, sometimes they called, but the message was always the same: "Give us money." Months before they took control of the Iraqi city of Mosul in June, Islamic State militants were already busy collecting money to finance their campaign of setting up a 7th century style caliphate.

So I'm going to stick to that, just trying to keep getting birdie looks on every hole." His only birdie on the back nine was a two footer at the 177 yard 16th hole. That was enough to lead after his front side 31 that included a 45 foot birdie putt on the difficult par 4 fifth hole. Hunter Mahan, playing in the group ahead of Johnson, led before a double bogey 6 at the 433 yard 18th hole for a 66. He was tied for second with Harris English, Tim Wilkinson and Robert Streb. There are two Canadians in the hunt. David Hearn, of Brantford, Ont., sits tied for sixth after firing a 3 under 67, while Graham DeLaet, of Weyburn, Sask., is tied for 24th after shooting a 1 under 69. Jimmy Walker, a three time winner this season, and 20 year old Dallas native Jordan Spieth were in the group of 10 players at 67. Mahan started eagle birdie and was already 6 under after a three foot birdie on the 178 yard eighth hole. He had two bogeys and two more birdies before his drive at the 18th hole into the right rough, with trees blocking a clear shot to the green. After punching the ball back into the fairway, his approach came settled on the edge of the fringe and he eventually two putted from seven feet. "You have to get over it," Mahan said about the disappointing 18th. "It's all about the drive there." Adam Scott, playing as the No. 1 player in the world for the first time, shot 71 after playing his first nine holes at 4 over 39. Scott had bogey 6 on the straight 631 yard 11th hole, his second of the day, when he hit twice from fairway bunkers. After a two putt from 11 feet at the 433 yard 18th hole, Scott was bogey free the rest of the way, with consecutive short birdies after making the turn. "I thought I actually hit plenty of good shots," Scott said. "All of a sudden, I had the momentum going the way I wanted and managed to hang on for the next few holes." The Australian said he felt the same as he did before this week when he overtook injured Tiger Woods for the top spot in the world ranking. "There's not a big difference," Scott said. "It's always the first tee nerves of starting a tournament out, but I certainly didn't feel that much different." Johnson's 65 was the highest score to lead after the first round at Hogan's Alley since another 65 in 2002. There were opening 62s in two of the previous three Colonials. When he first played at Colonial in 2008, Johnson made the initial cut. But after a 72 in the third round, he was among six more players trimmed to reduce the field to 73 for the final day. Walker, the FedEx Cup points leader, also played a bogey free round with a tremendous par saver at the 470 yard fifth hole after hitting his drive left into the rough under trees. With the ball on a hill several inches below his feet, he hit an off balance shot to the left of the green. He then chipped up over the bunker, and the ball rolled to inside 4 feet of the cup. "I kind of had a shot, and I went for it,' he said. "I had a big high cut over the trees, and didn't hit a very good shot, but it came up just short of the green, and made a great up and down there." Matt Kuchar, ranked No. 4 in the world and with a chance to move to the top with a victory, had birdies at Nos. 11 and 12 early in his round. He then had five bogeys before finally getting his only other birdie on his 16th hole, an 11 foot putt on the 437 yard seventh hole, in a 72. That matched his highest score in his 29 career rounds at Colonial, where he finished second last year. Rickie Fowler, who stars in a series of funny commercials for tournament sponsor Crowne Plaza, played with flu like symptoms and had two triple bogeys in an 80, the worst score in the 123 player invitational field. 136064 120 Jordan 3 Fire Red Retro 2013 Women Size,Not good enough to perform at the Rogers Centre, the Milwaukee Five is doing fine thanks. Gord Ash, assistant general manager of the Brewers, was let go by Blue Jays president Paul Godfrey at the end of the 2001 season. Doug Melvin, the Brewers GM, was interviewed, then rejected by Godfrey when hiring Ash replacement, Godfrey reasoning that Melvin had not developed enough pitching as GM of the Texas Rangers. Ricciardi in the purge that claimed manager Buck Martinez. Ron Roenicke, manager of the Brewers, was interviewed by GM Alex Anthopoulos and assistant GM Tony LaCava a year ago. Shaun Marcum, the Game 2 starter of the NLCS, was dealt last December to the Brewers for third baseman Brett Lawrie. The Brewers finished 2010 with 77 wins, with their four most active starters being Randy Wolf, Yovani Gallardo, David Bush and Chris Narveson. Gallardo starts against the St. Louis Cardinals and right hander Chris Carpenter Wednesday in Game 3 of the best of seven National League Championship Series at Busch Stadium. Wolf starts Game 4 on Thursday, while Bush moved on to the Texas Rangers and Narveson, who made 28 starts this season, is in the bullpen for post season play. After identifying improving their rotation as job No. 1, Melvin and Ash did that by adding two legitimate starters within 13 days. The Brewers, as we mentioned, dealt top prospect Lawrie to the Jays for Marcum, at the winter meetings in Florida. They then acquired Zach Greinke from the Kansas City Royals, along with shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt and four minor leaguers on Dec. 19. The brother of Jays director of pro scouting director, Perry Minasian, is Zack Minasian, who holds the same position with the Brewers. and Zack did a lot of talking, said Ash, of the Marcum Lawrie deal. wasn any mystery to this. The question we had to answer was whether we wanted Marcum now or look for someone younger, comparable to Lawrie as a pitching prospect. decided solidifying our rotation was more important. has pitched 209 1/3 innings this season, including the post season the most work of his career. From opening day until Aug. 23 he was 11 3 with a 3.40 ERA in 26 starts. Since then, he 2 6 with a 5.43 ERA in nine starts, including post season play. Greinke, a top of the rotation guy, a young, former Cy Young award winner would be the No. 1 move him and Marcum, said Melvin. lost CC Sabathia and Ben Sheets to free agency. Our market doesn allow us to replace them. We thought we should be aggressive. We figured we were a .500 team. If you think you are .500 anything can happen. Brewers, with a team payroll of $85.5 million (17th) added reliever Takashi Saito (2.03 ERA in 30 games) in the off season. They acquired centre fielder Nyger Morgan from the Washington Nationals and Francisco Rodriguez from the New York Mets in early July to work the eighth. And they added Jerry Hairston from Washington at the non waiver trade deadline to take over from Casey McGehee, who hit .233. Perhaps the biggest decision the Brewers made was NOT moving Prince Fielder when it became apparent he would not re sign. It similar to Roy Halladay with the Jays in 2009. The Jays knew he was leaving but kept him. Milwaukee kept Fielder, added quality pieces and decided to make a run at it. still think we be good in 2012, Melvin said. have Ryan Braun, Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks back, all our starters plus closer John Axford. months ago the Brewers hired rookie manager Roenicke. reminds me of Johnny Oates, said Melvin of Oates who managed the Texas Rangers for seven seasons. utilize his coaches, interacts with players to get their opinions.

We are facing another biennium of budget challenges and it is important to me to use my experience and knowledge to help form this budget. The issues and challenges we face require not only experience, but also institutional memory on these issues. To increase my knowledge I have participated in the Western Legislative Academy (Council of State Governments/West only 39 legislators from 13 states are picked to go) and I also was picked to be a Toll Fellow (only 40 people from all three branches of Government from the entire nation). I want to continue to use my leadership skills and collaborate in a bipartisan effort to pass good legislation. I believe my constituents have appreciated my hard work on their behalf, and will support my re election. The state of Washington provides several veteran benefits in the areas of Housing, Financial Assistance, property tax exemptions (which include property tax exemptions for widows and widowers of Veterans) and other state sponsored benefits to help our vets reintegrate into society. We have retraining programs, and free and reduced passes for fishing, hunting, parks, licenses and ferry passes. The Legislature requires state community colleges, colleges and universities to waive all undergraduate tuition and fees for eligible dependents of eligible veteran or National Guard members up to 200 quarter credits or equivalent semester credits. I was very humbled in 2011 by being named "Legislator of the Year" by the WA Dept. of Veteran Affairs. My husband, Ron, served 32 years in the Navy and retired as the most senior Master Chief in the Navy at that time. He instilled in me the love for those military men and women who serve our country, and for those who have come home disabled mentally and physically. This past year I was appointed to the Military Education Compact Committee, helping children, of military men and women, integrate into our school system without being penalized by courses that they could not take in other states or countries. Our WA Dept. of Veteran Affairs holds a family resource day all around the state and I will fight to maintain this program. Could we do more? Yes we could and will do more. We will continue to fight for programs in education, retraining and Veteran owned businesses. Yes, I believe it should. Article 2, Sec. 22 specifically says: "Passage of Bills: No bill shall become a law unless on its final passage the vote be taken by yeas and nays, the names of the members voting for and against the same be entered on the journal of each house, and "a majority of the members" elected to each house be recorded thereon as voting in its favor." This was not an interpretation by specific in its majority. A search by a young attorney for the League of Women Voters turned up specific language in the section about county boundaries and the notes that were taken of that debate. "A determined effort to change from a majority to two thirds or three fifths met with failure" the Journal of the convention summed up." Further the phrase "unless a majority" won after much discussion that 2/3rds was "prohibitionary". So the bottom line is that "a majority" is not a flexible standard as all other suggestions were soundly rejected. If the 2/3rds is overturned, it will mean the majority will prevail, loopholes will then be closed (it was ruled by the Lt. Gov. that closing a loophole was a tax increase), and we can have the discussion about tax reform and fully funding basic education. I believe the state should continue to allow undocumented immigrants to get driver's licenses. It is the only way that we know that a person has passed the written and driving test, and that they have shown proof of insurance before safely driving that vehicle. Article IX, Sec. 1 states: "It is the paramount duty of the state to make ample provisions for the education of all children residing within its borders, without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex (emphasis added). As an elected official, I took an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States and to uphold the Constitution and laws of the State of Washington. It is clear to me that all children residing in its borders means just that, and so I believe we should educate these children. We honor ourselves by ensuring that life for these children will be better than their parents, and that they will become self sufficient, pay taxes and continue to make Washington State a superior place to live. Health and safety regulations are definitely appropriate for businesses in Washington State. We have "nuisance laws" which we now call "zoning" to protect neighbor from neighbor and neighborhoods. No one wants a pig farm in their residential neighborhood or a sewer plant and those type of regulations make sure we stay safe. I believe we have to look at each regulation separately and what it does or doesn't do to protect the community. It is also appropriate to look at certain regulations to see if they over regulate, or actually are useless. Those can be removed. Others can be tweaked. I support the creation of businesses in Kitsap County and will continue to do so. If there is a problem with a regulation, I will always work to make the situation better. 136064 120 Jordan 3 Fire Red Retro 2013 Women Size A man accused of murder may be released on bond because the district attorney failed to file an indictment against him within 90 days of his arrest, according to reports by My Fox Houston and was arrested in August in connection to the death of his teenage classmate in Missouri City in 2002. The Fort Bend County District Attorney's office forgot about the paperwork and takes responsibility for the oversight, saying they were hoping to get more details about the case. Mendoza, however, will be required to have no contact with (victim Christopher) Daigle's family and his location will constantly be monitored by satellite. Daigle's mother Tracie Gregory fears Mendoza will run. "The district attorney forgot the date. She forgot to file," she said. "I don't understand how that can happen on something very important like a murder. If it was their child, they wouldn't have forgotten."
