Area residents remember day of imfamy -- Pearl Harbor attack

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called it a "day of infamy."

Exactly 60 years ago today, Japan unleashed its sneak attack on the United States and sunk much of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and killed thousands of Americans at Pearl Harbor.

But the terrorist attacks on the U.S. on Sept. 11 -- an even more recent national day of infamy -- have stirred memories of many area residents of that earlier day of infamy -- on December 7, 1941.

Packers relying on rookies to get them down stretch

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The rookie reinforcements have arrived just in time for the Green Bay Packers to make their playoff push.

Their top two draft picks, pass-rusher Jamal Reynolds and wide receiver Robert Ferguson, made their NFL debuts Monday night, and both had key plays in the waning minutes of the Packers' 28-21 victory at Jacksonville.
