Yet, "farmlands, rivers and lakes (still) characterize the landscape," according to the county's Web site. Almost 75 percent of the county's land is classified as agricultural, and the county has more than 2,800 acres protected by its park system. The National Register of Historic Places lists 27 sites in Wright County.
Extractions: The ALT-tag allows for a text description of a graphic to reside beneath the actual graphic. This text description is not visible to the sighted user, but is invaluable in describing the image to a text-based user. For example: When using banners with animated text (or any graphics or movies that need lengthy descriptions), the use of description tags (D-tags) are a good alternative to the length restrictive ALT-tag. A D-tag is a capital "D" that appears next to or below an image, that is a link to a page with a description of the graphic. Because D-tag descriptions appear on their own page, they can be as long as the author needs them to be. Therefore, users can receive more information about the physical description of a graphic image than the ALT-text allows.

ACLU/SC Open Forum: Summer 2000 ãMy passion for the idea of online communities, my idea for giving away free home pages The ACLU/SCâs inaugural Bohnett Staff attorney will be Martha Matthews http://www.aclu-sc.org/news/openforum/743/bohnett.htm
Extractions: In June, the David Bohnett Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California announced the creation of the Bohnett Attorney at the ACLU of Southern California, a staff attorney position that will focus on gay and lesbian civil rights litigation. It is the only dedicated position to be funded thus far by the year-old foundation, which was created by Internet entrepreneur and Geocities founder David Bohnett with an endowment of $32 million. The Bohnett Foundation dedicates its resources based on a founding vision of investing in social change. Gay and lesbian civil rights have long been a priority for Bohnett, who traces the inspiration for Geocities to his own experience as a gay man. ãMy passion for the idea of online communities, my idea for giving away free home pages, came from my own experience . . . It was through my personal experience of coming out that I recognized how important it was to give everyone on the Internet that same chance to speak up about who they are - to give a voice to their hopes, their dreams and their passions.ä The ACLU/SCâs inaugural Bohnett Staff Attorney will be Martha Matthews. She joins the ACLU after years of public interest litigation on behalf of youth and low-income families, most recently as a staff attorney at the National Youth Law Center, where she engaged in impact litigation and legislative advocacy to improve the foster care system and to improve delivery of services to adolescents.
Extractions: www.FirstAmendment.com On May 13, 2002, the United States Supreme Court reversed the landmark decision of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, concluding that application of varying community standards to Internet communications does not, in itself, render the Child Online Protection Act ("COPA") unconstitutionally overbroad. This was an unusual case for the High Court in that it was an appeal from a preliminary injunction; the Court rarely agrees to review cases that are not final. The majority of Justices decided to "remand" (read: send back) the case to the Court of Appeals for further consideration of the constitutional issues raised by the parties. The narrow grounds upon which the Third Circuit invalidated COPA were, to be sure, ground-breaking. Striking down the law based on the community standards issue essentially forced the Supreme Court to take the case, reverse it, and send it back for a final decision on the other constitutional issues. Thus, the preliminary injunction will remain in effect while the courts work this out. The Third Circuit Court of Appeal could still readily declare COPA unconstitutional on vagueness or other overbreadth grounds, or even strike the law down based on failure to meet the strict scrutiny test applicable to content-based restrictions on speech. For those Webmasters seeking to provide free hardcore materials on the Web, this additional "hold time" will be seen as a benefit. But for the reasons which follow, the Supreme Court's decision has struck a critical blow to First Amendment jurisprudence, and further complicates the issues relating to online obscenity.
Extractions: The promotion of commercial lotteries and other forms of traditional gambling has long been the subject of state and federal regulation. As early as 1827, Congress passed a law that provided: "No Postmaster, or Assistant Postmaster, shall act as agent for lottery offices." By 1868, Congress made it unlawful to mail any letters or circulars concerning lotteries or other similar enterprises offering prizes of any kind or any pretext whatsoever. Congress extended the mailing ban from letters to cover newspapers through the Anti-Lottery Act of 1890, which was upheld in the face of an 1892 First Amendment challenge. By 1895, Congress eliminated interstate lotteries altogether, and prohibited the transportation of lottery tickets in interstate commerce.

The Child Online Protection Act of 1998, also known informally as the Son of CDA or as CDA II (referring to the Communications Decency Act of 1996, ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 1997), creates a criminal and a civil offense for any for-profit (or possibly any commercial) entity of person that places harmful to minors content on the World Wide Web without a domain-specific adult-verification mechanism to deter minors under 17 from viewing it.

Extractions: Harris, 38, who is of mixed Jamaican and Indian descent, could simultaneously lay claim as San Francisco's first female district attorney, the first official of Asian descent to hold the office, and the first African-American top county prosecutor in the state. The significance of that potential moment, however, is subject to debate among lawyers and other professionals who are following the race closely. "I think it's historic. Given that San Francisco is so diverse, why did it take until 2004 that we have the possibility of having an attorney of color in the position?" asks Gillian G.M. Small, President of the California Association of Black Lawyers. Harris, the daughter of a mother from India and a father of Jamaican heritage, had been a relative unknown at the outset of the campaign. She ran on a platform critical of incumbent Terrence Hallinan's low conviction rate, and promised an aggressive prosecution of violent crimes, especially sexual exploitation and domestic violence against women and children.

Extractions: America after the Attacks The U.S. War on Terrorism ATTORNEY GENERAL ASHCROFT: Mr. Chairman, Senator Hatch, members of the Judiciary Committee, thank you for this opportunity to testify today. It is a pleasure to be back in the United States Senate. On the morning of September 11, as the United States came under attack, I was in an airplane with several members of the Justice Department en route to Milwaukee, in the skies over the Great Lakes. By the time we could return to Washington, thousands of people had been murdered at the World Trade Center. 189 were dead at the Pentagon. Forty-four had crashed to the ground in Pennsylvania. From that moment, at the command of the President of the United States, I began to mobilize the resources of the Department of Justice toward one single, over-arching and over-riding objective: to save innocent lives from further acts of terrorism. America's campaign to save innocent lives from terrorists is now 87 days old. It has brought me back to this committee to report to you in accordance with Congress's oversight role. I welcome this opportunity to clarify for you and the American people how the Justice Department is working to protect American lives while preserving American liberties.
