President Bush has signed a law that will protect a scenic 102,000-acre valley in New Mexico's Carson National Forest from a proposal to drill more than 500 natural gas wells. The Valle Vidal, or "Valley of Life," was the focus of a story in The Sun last year that described how liberal environmentalists had joined conservative hunters to fight the drilling plan by the Houston-based El Paso natural gas company. "The Valle Vidal victory should lead to a waterfall of public lands protections from oil and gas development throughout the West," said Jim O'Donnell, outreach coordinator with an environmental group called the Coalition for the Valle Vidal.

John J. Klocko III, a two-term Anne Arundel County Council member and father of three, died in a car crash Saturday in southern Utah. The longtime Crofton resident was 45. County officials canceled yesterday's council meeting and put off questions regarding Mr. Klocko's replacement on the elected board, saying they were too distraught to discuss what action, if any, they could take to fill the seat before the Nov. 5 general election. "It is shocking that he would be killed like this," said Robert P. Duckworth, clerk of the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, who had known Mr. Klocko since he was a teen-ager attending Arundel High School.
