Some of the biggest political contributors in recent elections don't appear on any list of the usual suspects; they are neither corporations, unions nor extremely wealthy individuals. Instead, they are new nonprofit organizations that have been granted tax-exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service because of the ostensible "social welfare" activities they engage in. In truth, however, these groups have morphed into some of the nation's most powerful backstage political actors, shelling out millions of dollars to support candidates for office without ever having to disclose where their money is coming from or who is trying to influence the outcome on an election.

Washington -- With the check-kiting scandal gnawing like a terrier on the ankle of the House of Representatives, that body's designated ethicists displayed an ingenuity that might better be invested in solving the nation's problems than in covering up Congress'. They devised the following rococo rule:The public would be permitted to know the names of those members who in eight different months of a 39-month period wrote bad checks to the House bank totaling more than the member's next month's paycheck.

The Washington Capitals were one of the busiest teams Friday when the doors to the 2011 NHL free agent market opened, as general manager George McPhee sent goalie Semyon Varlamov to Colorado for a pair of draft picks and added three veterans to the lineup. In signing role player and former Capitals captain Jeff Halpern, two-way defenseman Roman Hamrlik and a big-bodied, hard working winger in Joel Ward, Washington elevated the leadership in a still-young dressing room and filled holes in the roster that will be left by the departure of up to five unrestricted free agents.

More than 5 million are homeless and may not be able to rebuild their houses any time soon, or ever, because of the instability of the terrain.

DENVER -- It was a heck of a drive for a plate of pasta. Visiting friends in Colorado for the holidays, Mike Watts and his father decided on a whim to take a spin to the mountains for lunch. They made it to a Ruby Tuesday's about 60 miles west of Denver. Then the winds kicked up. Twenty-four hours later, they were still stranded. "It's a mess," groaned Watts, 20, speaking by phone from a shelter in the town of Silverthorne. Nearly 3,000 travelers were trapped in the high country from early Sunday evening through late yesterday after gusting winds - and the threat of avalanches - forced authorities to close a 70-mile stretch of the Interstate 70 highway.

SALT LAKE CITY - Organizers of the 2002 Winter Olympics want visitors to think snow. Bruce Tremper wants visitors to think about how snow could kill them. Thousands of Olympic spectators and winter vacationers will take to the Wasatch Mountain backcountry in February, stepping into an area Tremper calls "the Stone Age," the prime area for avalanches. "There's no one out there to save you in an avalanche. If you have to send for help, you're sending for a body recovery," says Tremper, director of the U.S. Forest Service Avalanche Forecast Center in Utah and head of avalanche safety for the Winter Games.
