It is owned by Lee Enterprises, which acquired the newspaper with its 2002 purchase of Howard Publications. Howard, in turn, had purchased the paper in 1999 from Ted and John Natt, grandsons of John M. McClelland Sr., ending 76 years of McClelland-Natt family ownership. According to "R.A. Long's Planned City" by John McClelland Jr., McClelland Sr. purchased the paper, which began as a Long-Bell Lumber Company daily, from Robert A. Long, the lumber magnate and founder of Longview. Long founded both Longview and The Daily News in 1923. R. A. Long Robert A. Long (1850–1934) was born in Shelby County, Kentucky. In 1873 Long moved to Columbus, Kansas and with a friend and a cousin, Victor Bell and Robert White, started a hay business. This was unsuccessful but there seemed to be a need for lumber so the three formed the R. A. Long & Company. After the death of Robert White the remaining two formed the Long-Bell Lumber Company in 1887 and the headquarters was moved to Kansas City. This was a very lucrative business and Long became a millionaire. His other milestones achieved were lumber baron, developer, investor, newspaper owner, town and city builder, being Longville, Louisiana and Longview, Washington, and philanthropist. In 1907 he built the R.A. Long Building, the first steel framed skyscraper, in Kansas City. The building was bought by City National Bank & Trust Company (UMB Financial Corporation) in 1940. Long was a founding member and president of the Liberty Memorial Association that secured funding for the memorial. James M. Kemper was treasurer as well as president of a bank. In 1911 he built Corinthian Hall, a 72 room mansion and in 1914 he built the Longview Farm.


Salinas, California

religious-based schools in Watsonville such as Notre Dame School, Monte Vista Christian, Salesian Sisters and St. Francis. There are also several charter schools and the non-religious independent Pre-K through 12th grade Mount Madonna School. These schools provide a wide range of educational options for local families. Watsonville is generally conservative on the political spectrum and average in relationship to the neighboring communities of Salinas, Castroville, and Prunedale. The larger coastal town directly north of Watsonville is the city of Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, California). Santa Cruz is a draw for many young college students who attend Cabrillo College or University of California, Santa Cruz. Because Watsonville and Santa Cruz are beach towns, they draw many visitors from San Jose (San Jose, California) and from the Central Valley (Central Valley, California) areas. Like neighboring Salinas (Salinas, California) in Monterey County (Monterey County, California), Watsonville produces a variety of fruits and vegetables, primarily apples, strawberries (strawberry), blackberries (blackberry), raspberries (raspberry), and table mushrooms. Crime In comparison to nearby incorporated cities, Watsonville's overall crime index is 24.1% lower than Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, California), 15.4% lower than Salinas (Salinas, California), and 38.4% higher than Gilroy (Gilroy, California). Police in Salinas (w:Salinas, California), California have identified a 15-year-old boy killed on August 6 in what is believed to be a gang (w:Gang) related shooting. The boy, Jose Manual Perez, was found by police at 2:15 p.m. local time, when they responded to reports of a shooting at Terrace Street.

Foreign tourists mostly come from Eastern Europe, particularly from Poland, and the Czech Republic, and also from Western Europe such as Germany, Italy, France, and Scandinavian countries. Turizmi ne Shqiperi: Reklama per Evropen Lindore, Shqiperia.com They tend to visit alpine settings though beach tourism is also practiced. Backpackers are common and prefer resting at the many hostels in Tirana, or camping in the countryside or along the coast. Organized groups mainly visit the numerous archaeological sites and historic towns. A growing trend has become rafting in the many canions, cycling, hiking in the mountains, or cross-country off-road touring in the countryside. The latter can also be explored through the adventurous Albanian railway system (Rail transport in Albania). Recently, car rental agencies and information centers have opened branches in Tirana International Airport, in the capital and other towns. Dental tourism has become popular as local dentists offer Western standards with much lower prices. Local delicious cuisine can be tasted at traditional Albanian restaurants located near tourist attractions and scenic spots throughout the country.

There are also important Bektashi communities among the Albanian communities of Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia) and Kosovo, the most important being the Harabati Baba Tekke (Harabati baba tekke) in the city of Tetovo, which was until recently under the guidance of Baba Tahir Emini (1941–2006). Following the death of Baba Tahir Emini, the ''dedelik'' of Tirana appointed Baba Edmond Brahimaj (Baba Mondi), formerly head of the Turan Tekke of Korçë, to oversee the Harabati Baba Tekke. A splinter branch of the order has recently sprung up in the town of Kicevo which has ties to the Turkish Bektashi community under Haydar Ercan Dede rather than Tirana. A smaller Bektashi ''tekke'', the Dikmen Baba Tekkesi, is in operation in the Turkish-speaking town of Kanatlarci, Macedonia that also has stronger ties with Turkey's Bektashis. In Kosovo the relatively small Bektashi community has a ''tekke'' in the town of Ðakovica (Gjakovë) and is under the leadership of Baba Mumin Lama and it recognizes the leadership of Tirana. * '''Ferid Muhić''' (born 1944 in Zavidovići, Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a Professor of Philosophy at University Sts.

He joined the Foreign Service in 1977. His most recent assignments were as Deputy Chief of Mission to Ankara, 1999–2002, and to Kuwait, 1996-1999. He also has served in Tunis, Sofia, Munich, Adana, and on a first assignment to Ankara in 1985-1987. In the Department, Mr. Jeffrey has served as Senior Greek Desk Officer, as Officer in Charge of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, as Deputy Office Director in the Office of Near Eastern Peace Process and Regional Affairs, and as Deputy Presidential Special Advisor for Bosnia (Bosnia and Herzegovina) Implementation. He speaks German (German language), French (French language), and Turkish (Turkish language). The syllables ''je'' and ''ije'' appear in the western standard of Serbo-Croatian (spoken in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and south-western parts of Serbia) where the eastern standard (spoken in most of Serbia) has only variation in quantity (length of the vowel) of ''e''. Not every eastern standard ''e'' becomes ''je'' or ''ije'' like in the western. Eastern standard speakers may hypercorrect their dialect by either undersupplying or oversupplying the ''je''s and the ''ije''s. Early life and career Born in Ontario to Croatian (Croats) parents from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Stipan and Katica (born Kordić) Čuvalo, father from Proboj and mother from Grljevići near Ljubuški. Chuvalo grew up in The Junction district of west Toronto, and had one sibling, Zora. Chuvalo attended St. Michael's College School between 1950 and 1953 following which he attended Humberside Collegiate Institute and became one of the best-known amateur boxers in Toronto, fighting out of the Earlscourt Athletic Club. One of the defining features of Hurd's tenure as Foreign Secretary was the British reaction to the increasingly vicious Yugoslav Wars. During the war in Bosnia (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Hurd was seen as a leading voice among European politicians arguing against sending military aid to the Bosniaks and for maintaining the arms embargo, in defiance of the line taken by US President Bill Clinton, and arguing that such a move would only create a 'level killing field' and prolong the conflict unduly. Hurd also resisted pressure to allow Bosnian refugees to enter into Britain arguing that to do so would reduce pressure on the Bosnian Government to sue for peace Media. Douglas Hurd described his and British policy during that time as 'realist'. http: www.bosnia.org.uk bosrep report_format.cfm?articleid 1081&reportid 163 During this period the fractious relations between European and US leaders threatened the stability of the trans-Atlantic alliance and delayed any co-ordinated response to the bloodshed taking place in the collapsing Yugoslavia. Shortly after his retirement from politics, Hurd travelled to Serbia to meet Slobodan Milošević on behalf of the British bank NatWest (see below), fuelling some speculation that Hurd had taken a pro-Serbian line. There has been criticism of Hurd's policies in relation to the war. The Bosnian government even threatened to charge Hurd as an accomplice to genocide before the war tribunal in The Hague, though this came to nothing. In 2010, Douglas Hurd told a reporter that he was troubled by his Bosnia policy but still doubted that intervention would have brought about an earlier end to the war.

In the aftermath of World War II, millions of ethnic Germans were forcibly expelled (Expulsion of Germans after World War II) from their homes within the redrawn borders of Eastern Europe, including the Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary and Yugoslavia. Most resettled in Germany, but others came as refugees to the United States in the late 1940s, and established cultural centers in their new homes. Some Danube Swabians, for instance, ethnic Germans who had maintained language and customs after settlement along the Danube in Hungary, later Yugoslavia (now Serbia), immigrated to the U.S. after the war. The last offensive of the European war was the Prague Offensive on 6–11 May 1945, when the Red Army, with the help of Polish (Poland), Romanian, and Czechoslovak (Czechoslovakia) forces defeated the parts of Army Group Centre which continued to resist in Czechoslovakia. There were a number of small battles and skirmishes involving small bodies of men, but no other large scale fighting that resulted in the death of thousands of people. (See the end of World War II in Europe for details on these final days of the war.) - Czechoslovakia Roman Catholic Church Catholic 1920 - In his early youth Kapuściński started writing for the ''Sztandar Młodych'', a nationwide newspaper founded in 1950 as the organ of the central organisation of the Communist youth, the ZMP (Union of Polish Youth), of which he was a member. After publishing, in September 1955, a critical article about the construction of Nowa Huta, a Cracow (Kraków) conurbation built on a site chosen by Soviet "advisors" as the "first socialist municipality in Po­land", Cf. Jan Skarbowski ''et al.'' , ''Nowa Huta: pierwsze socjalistyczne miasto w Polsce'', Cracow (Kraków), Wydawnictwo Literackie, 1971. Similarly, the French urban sociologist, Paul-Henry Chombart de Lauwe (1913–1998), called Nowa Huta ''ville phare du socialisme'' (flagship conurbanity of socialism). which brought to light the inhuman working and living conditions of the labourers involved in the venture—a story which occaioned consternation before eventually winning favour with the Communist authorities unsure at first how to react to a fault-finding depiction of their pet project by one of their own—Kapuściński was awarded the Golden Cross of Merit (Cross of Merit (Poland)) at the age of 23. The newspaper article having been a commissioned piece, the outcome of the incident was a function, ultimately, of the infighting of competing factions within the Communist Party, Jerzy Morawski, one of the leaders of the Pulavian Faction (Polish United Workers' Party#Gomułka's autarchic communism) and a secretary of the Central Committee (Central Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party), being instrumental in bringing the matter to a resolution successful for Kapuściński. Kapuściński demanded of his newspaper to be sent abroad (later in life claiming that what he had had in mind was Czechoslovakia). He was sent via Italy to India (taking in Pakistan and Afghanistan as well), and the next year (1957) again to China (People's Republic of China) and Japan. Beginning with that journey to India undertaken in 1956, at the age of 24, without any foreign-language skills (he is said to have learned English only afterwards – by reading, with the help of a dictionary, a copy of Hemingway's (Ernest Hemingway) ''For Whom the Bell Tolls''
