USA Today state snippets http://www.usatoday.com/usatonline/20040402/6075899s.htm

Colorado: Grand Junction -- Two candidates for district attorney say someone broke into their homes and planted pornography on their computers. One of the candidates, Ann Duckett, said she doesn't want the sheriff to investigate because he has already endorsed the incumbent prosecutor. Sheriff Stan Hilkey said suggesting that his staff doesn't have the integrity to handle a burglary report was offensive.

Georgia: Lawrenceville -- Six of the 11 teachers who reportedly bought advanced degrees from a Liberian online college have resigned. The Gwinnett County teachers submitted letters of resignation after an investigation by the county schools' personnel office.

Maine: Augusta -- The state House voted to ban the sale of nicotine-laced water. The bill, which faces further votes, reached the floor about three months after Rite Aid pulled the product from its 80 stores in Maine. The maker of NicoWater says smoking restrictions underscore the need for nicotine substitutes.

Rich, vibrant community life of rural maya described by BU archaeologist
A team of archaeologists from Boston University have spent the past four years gathering and analyzing items left behind by Maya living in rural Xibun, a community in the Sibun River Valley of central Belize. With the researchers' coaxing, the Xibun artifacts are providing a story of life among rural Maya during the civilization's Late Classic Period (600 – 900 A.D.).
