By Paul Garber
For Terry Holbrook, it's one mystery solved, and one more to figure out. The first mystery: Where was the roster of Civil War veterans that history buffs had told him was supposed to be in the clerk's office?
Holbrook, who was elected in 2000 as the Forsyth County Clerk of Superior Court, said he turned his office upside down in his first few months looking for the book. He went through old bound volumes in the law library next to his office and searched throughout the clerk offices in the courthouse.

How the Death of Judy's Father Made America More Secretive

sows the seeds of the Patriot Act.
By Barry Siegel, Times Staff Writer
In a box delivered by rolling handcart on the morning of Feb. 26, 2003, the U.S.
Supreme Court received 40 copies of a petition so unusual a clerk decided he
couldn't accept it for filing. First, though, he turned through its pages.
In a preliminary statement, he read these words: Three widows stood before this
court in 1952. Their husbands had died in the crash of an Air Force plane. The
lower courts had awarded them compensation. But the United States was bent on
overturning their judgments, and _ to accomplish this _ it committed a fraud not
only upon the widows but upon this Court.

By Michael Kranish, Globe Staff | April 20, 2004
WASHINGTON -- The day after John F. Kerry said he would make all of his military records available for inspection at his campaign headquaarters, a spokesman said the senator would not release any new documents, leaving undisclosed many of Kerry's evaluations by his Navy commanding officers, some medical records, and possibly other material.
Kerry, in an interview Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press," was asked whether he would follow President Bush's example and release all of his military records. "I have," Kerry said. "I've shown them -- they're available for you to come and look at." He added that "people can come and see them at headquarters."
But when a reporter showed up yesterday morning to review the documents, the campaign staff declined, saying all requests must go through the press spokesman, Michael Meehan. Late yesterday, Meehan said the only records available would be those already released to this newspaper.
