In McKenzie and Carroll County: the McKenzie Rebels baseball team brought home a state championship. Huntingdon attorney Donald Parish is elected to his first of two terms as Circuit Court Judge; Carroll Lake Golf Course changes ownership; Patrick Willis is name All-SEC; and Huntingdon’s Chris Donald competes in the Army All-American Bowl Game.
 
In the United States: Google purchases YouTube for US$1.65 billion in stock; NASA launches the New Horizons probe; the US Energy department announces there are about a trillion barrels worth of oil in the form of Oil shale reserve; and President Bush acknowledged secret CIA prisons around the world outside of US legal jurisdiction.
 
Elsewhere in the world: Saddam Hussein is charged on May 15 and following the trial is found guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death; several European newspapers reprint controversial cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad;  Iran refuses access to U.N. inspectors many worry over Iran’s intent to build a nuclear bomb; and North Korea declares it has carried out its first test of a nuclear weapon.
