KABUL, Afghanistan - Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a stark taste of the challenges that continue to bedevil Afghanistan, as insurgents carried out two deadly bombings Saturday, one within earshot of the Pentagon chief. The Afghan government, meanwhile, abruptly canceled a ceremony scheduled for Saturday that had been meant to show that Kabul and Washington had finally reached a deal for the handover of a U.S. military prison. Afghan President Hamid Karzai at the last minute balked at the proposed terms of the handover of the Parwan Detention Facility, Afghan and U.S. officials said, dashing hopes that a resolution of a contentious issue that has poisoned the relationship between the two countries was in sight.

On December 12 at approximately 2:30 a.m. I was awaken from a sound sleep of a vicious dog attacking and mauling to death Joey, a stray cat on the 600 block of East Flora Street. The sound of Joey screaming for help was horrible. The owner of this vicious dog did not even have the dog on a leash and did not even try to stop the attack. Joey never bothered anyone and he did not deserve to die like he did. This was a senseless killing.The dog's owner is a heartless human being for allowing this to happen.

A Frankford teenager yesterday was found guilty of robbery, riot and indecent assault for his part in an attack by more than 15 black youths on a white woman who was beaten, robbed and stripped of all but her bra. After issuing the verdict against David Fletcher, 19, of the 4700 block of Hawthorne Street, Common Pleas Court Judge Gene D. Cohen said, "I am particularly outraged by this case. " Cohen did not find enough evidence to convict Fletcher of a charge of ethnic intimidation, although police had said the April 10 nighttime attack was racially motivated.

APOCALYPSE '91: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BLACK Public Enemy. Columbia. Talk of Public Enemy usually centers on their incendiary words. And no wonder.

And that's just for starters.

He approached her, and she asked him for directions so she could get to her home in another part of the city.

PITTSBURGH - Villanova coach Jay Wright had spent part of his pre-NCAA tournament news conference expressing concern about how to defend Lafayette and its three-point attack, one that carried the Leopards to the Patriot League championship. When informed Wednesday of Wright's apprehension, Lafayette coach and Villanova graduate Fran O'Hanlon quipped, "Was Jay really scared?" When the Wildcats, the No. 1 seed in the NCAA East Regional, take on the 16th-seeded Leopards on Thursday night at the Consol Energy Center, a key will be which defense can stop the three-point shooting of its opponent more effectively.

But that conversation sparked an aggressive 24-hour push that made Murray the Eagles' next running back. Murray touched down in Philadelphia at 3:08 p.m. Thursday.
