Sloppy Silicon Valley techies find their style

Sunday, 06 October 2013 09:13 Published in National News

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The Silicon Valley has had a men's fashion problem dating back to its founders.

Tech companies from their inception went out of their way to be different from the rest of the corporate world. No more top-down management, no more cubicles — and no more business suits.

Thus leather sandals, elastic-waist jeans and baggy, faded T-shirts became ubiquitous, and brilliant innovation took place in the dumpiest of outfits.

But that's changing as a younger generation of engineers and designers have arrived in outfits that coordinate, and the market has responded to this new attitude among the region's rising nerds, geeks and hackers with new online men's stores, personal style consultants and an array of high-end shops at Northern California's biggest mall.

Hundreds gather to remember victims of rock slide

Sunday, 06 October 2013 09:03 Published in Local News

BUENA VISTA, Colo. (AP) — More than a thousand people gathered in a small Colorado mountain town Saturday to remember five members of the same family who were killed by a massive rock slide on a popular hiking trail.

Monday's slide across the trail to Agnes Vaille Falls in south-central Colorado's San Isabel National Forest killed 46-year-old Dwayne Johnson, 45-year-old Dawna Johnson and their 18-year-old daughter, Kiowa-Rain Johnson, all of Buena Vista.

The other victims were identified as 10-year-old Baigen Walker and 22-year-old Paris Walkup, both of Birch Tree, Missouri. They were nephews of Dwayne and Dawna Johnson.

The slide also injured 13-year-old Gracie Johnson, who attended Saturday's memorial in Buena Vista. She told rescuers her father saved her when he jumped on top of her as boulders began to crash down around them.

Iowa House members mirror GOP's national divide

Saturday, 05 October 2013 08:55 Published in National News

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Tom Latham and Steve King are Iowa Republicans who represent adjoining U.S. House districts.

Yet in philosophy and style, they couldn't be further apart.

King is an uncompromising, feisty conservative who's comfortably won six consecutive terms. His opposition to the health care law is so strong that he welcomed the government shutdown.

The understated Latham regularly has faced competitive challenges from Democrats. He argues for changing the health law to make it palatable, reopening closed government services and getting on with the fight over the nation's debt.

The crusader and the pragmatist symbolize the GOP's national quarrel about the best way forward for the party after losing consecutive presidential elections: hold fast to principles at all cost or demonstrate effectiveness by working with the opposition.
