By Catherine Kozak, The Virginian-Pilot, Norfolk, Va. Jun. 11--A DNA testing company and a genealogy enthusiast say they're trying to achieve what archaeologists have so far failed to do: find out what happened to the Lost Colony, the 1587 settlement on Roanoke Island that disappeared without a wisp of evidence. "The Lost Colony story is the biggest unsolved mystery in the history of America," said Roberta Estes, owner of DNA Explain, a private DNA analysis company based in Brighton,...

PITTSBURGH - About two weeks ago, archaeologist Tom Kutys thought he'd found a stone wall when he came across mortared capstones in a trench at the state park that once was the site of French and British forts. Instead, archaeologists at Point State Park believe they very well might have uncovered long-buried remnants of Fort Duquesne, Pittsburgh's original fort. "If we are correct about this, we are looking at the earliest example of European masonry in Pittsburgh," said Brooke Blades, an...

By CAROL HARVEY, PHOTO BY LUIS SNCHEZ SATURNO SECOND PLACE: ADULT NONFICTION Hokam From the whispered information I overheard at the Santa Fe Indian Hospital, it turned out she had been living and working in the garment district in Los Angeles. Her daughter, Lisa, was 9. A hospital there had tracked down Moma, and said, "We think we may have your daughter." As I sat near her, a tangle of tubes sustaining her, I said, "Jeanie, wake up. Come on, let's go to Apache Canyon. We'll climb the...

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Opening a bridge construction yard on what turned out to be an ancient Indian village and burial ground was "a very expensive misadventure" that the state can learn from, according to an internal report on the blunder. State Transportation Secretary Doug MacDonald released the detailed internal review at Tuesday's meeting of the state Transportation Commission. The review concluded that the project's demise could be seen as a cautionary tale about being more diligent when...

By James Vicini WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday let stand a ruling that two Indian tribes are not entitled to $248 million as compensation for New York state's unlawful acquisition of their land 200 years ago. The justices refused to review a ruling by an appeals court that overturned the monetary damages awarded to the Cayuga Indian Nation of New York and the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma. Without comment or recorded dissent, the justices rejected...

By Jason Szep PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (Reuters) - Like many of his Native American ancestors, Steve Phillip knows a thing or two about battles. He fought in the Vietnam War, waged a fight with alcoholism that nearly killed him and survived near poverty in rural northern Maine where his father picked berries for a living. Now, the 58-year-old is one of about 1,000 Micmac Indians fighting for self rule -- which would free them from state laws and taxes -- in a case that illustrates...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff said in the latest issue of Vanity Fair magazine that he worked closely with many top Republicans, despite their claims to the contrary. "Any important Republican who comes out and says they didn't know me is almost certainly lying," he said in the magazine's April edition, released to reporters on Wednesday. Abramoff pleaded guilty to fraud charges in January and is cooperating with prosecutors in a corruption probe that could implicate...

By Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Jack Abramoff said in correspondence made public on Thursday that President Bush met him "almost a dozen" times, disputing White House claims Bush did not know the former lobbyist at the center of a corruption scandal. "The guy saw me in almost a dozen settings, and joked with me about a bunch of things, including details of my kids. Perhaps he has forgotten everything, who knows," Abramoff wrote in an e-mail to Kim Eisler, national editor for...

By Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama patched up a feud and pledged on Wednesday to work together to enact new lobbying limits in the wake of the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling scandal. The Arizona Republican and the Illinois Democrat, who exchanged sharply worded letters this week, told the Senate Rules Committee they both want to reconcile competing measures to reform the pervasive Washington practice of plying lawmakers with donations and...

By Steve Holland NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Reuters) - President Bush on Wednesday called for overhauling the way lobbyists do business in Washington in the wake of the Jack Abramoff scandal, and the House of Representatives took a first step but delayed introduction of a broader measure. On a 379-50 vote, the Republican-led House changed its rules to ban access by former members-turned-registered lobbyists to its chamber and gym. But introduction of a broader Republican bill to tighten...
