Post office, postal workers reach contract deal

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service and the American Postal Workers Union said Monday they have reached tentative agreement on a new contract. If ratified by union membership, the deal would run through May 20, 2015 and cover about 205,000 postal employees. The union said the agreement calls for raises totaling 3.5 percent in three steps and protects jobs.

In separate negotiations the post office and 67,000-member National Rural Letter Carriers Association are still talking. Contracts with two other unions expire in November. The post office has suffered significant losses in recent years due to the recession and movement of business to the Internet. It has cut staff and is looking for other ways to reduce costs.

Study says use of fire relatively recent in Europe

DNR: Indians have separate fishing rules

Treaties protect certain activities LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan fisheries officials are asking people not to interfere with members of American Indian tribes who use spears or other traditional means of catching fish this spring.

The Department of Natural Resources says two 19th century treaties allow tribes in Michigan to establish their own fishing regulations. A legal agreement in 2007 between the state and five northern Michigan tribes defined their inland hunting, fishing and gathering rights. Under those agreements, some tribal members may

use equipment or methods to catch walleye and steelhead that aren’t permissible for recreational anglers under state licenses. They may also have different fishing seasons. Department fisheries division supervisor Nick Popoff says people who think they’re observing illegal activity can report it to the agency’s poaching hot line at 800-292-7800.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new study is raising questions about when ancient human ancestors in Europe learned to control fire, one of the most important steps on the long path to civilization. A review of 141 archaeological sites across Europe shows habitual use of fire beginning between 300,000 and 400,000 years ago, according to a paper in Tuesday’s edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Most archeologists agree that the use of fire is tied to colonization outside Africa, especially in Europe where temperatures fall below freezing, wrote Wil Roebroeks of

Leiden University in the Netherlands and Paola Villa of the University of Colorado. Yet, while there is evidence of early humans living in Europe as much as a million years ago, the researchers found no clear traces of regular use of fire before about 400,000 years ago. After that, Neanderthals and modern humans living in Europe regularly used fire for warmth, cooking and light, they found. “The pattern emerging is a clear as well as a surprising one,� they said, considering these ancient people were living in the cold European climate.
