WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress' Republican lead- ers face stark tests as they fight to keep the government open past month's end, amid fears a shutdown could imperil their party's White House ambitions. For House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, any wrong move could throw his very future into question, open- ing him to a threatened showdown vote on the floor of the House over whether he can remain in his job. If that happens, there is no certain outcome. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., must contend with the ambitions of several GOP presidential candidates. One of them, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, has made it his business to oppose the Kentuckian at every turn, even taking to the Senate floor to accuse him of lying. Now Cruz is once again goading a group of House tea partyers who have wreaked havoc with the leadership in the past. Together they are demanding that must-pass spending legislation cut off all federal money for Planned Parenthood. The efforts follows the disclosure of secretly recorded videos in which Planned Parenthood officials are shown discussing how they acquire fetal parts for med- ical research. Such a bill could not pass the Senate and would face a certain veto from President Barack Obama, raising the prospect of a partial government shut- down like the one two years ago in a similar struggle over the health care law. ''There's nothing princi- pled about the idea of another government shut- down,'' the president said in his weekend radio address.'' With less than two weeks to the Oct. 1 deadline, there remains no endgame - unless it's divine interven- tion in the form of a historic address from Pope Francis to a joint meeting of Congress on Thursday. And for the majority of congressional Republicans, who have little interest in palace intrigue or shutdown talk, the infighting and dis- array serves only as a depressing reminder of the GOP's repeated failures to capitalize on historic con- gressional majorities to advance a governing agenda that could help their party retake the presidency. Nor does it bode well for how Republicans navigate fights yet to come this year, including a potentially mar- ket-rattling struggle over raising the government's borrowing limit. ''There are some in the House who are using seri- ous governance issues to score cheap political points against the speaker,'' said Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa. ''Shutting down the govern- ment is not in our political interest, it will undermine the Republican brand and it will hurt whoever the Republican nominee is in November.'' Such warnings are dis- missed by the most unyield- ing conservatives in the House, who insist that the only way to force Obama to reckon with their demands to defund Planned Parenthood is by including it in must-pass spending legislation to keep the gov- ernment open. The tactic has failed twice before - two years ago over the health care law and earlier this year in an unsuccessful revolt against Obama's executive actions limiting deportations. Nonetheless, some Republicans continue to insist that their leaders must hold firm, despite the prospect of an Obama veto and even though McConnell has repeatedly made clear that legislation to defund Planned Parenthood cannot pass the Senate's 60-vote threshold, which demands compromise with minority Democrats. They reject such logic as capitulation. ''There will be a signifi- cant number of Republicans who will say, 'I will vote no on any bill that has an opportunity to defund Planned Parenthood and fails to do so,' " said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who includes himself in that group and also says he would vote to end Boehner's tenure as speaker if given the opportunity. ''This is an organic situation that is fes- tering and the pressure's building, and I don't know that I can predict what will happen. But I've never seen it get to this point where there's this much discon- tent.''

"I got a phone call when I was on va- cation in Florida that he was missing, and I couldn't be- lieve it and I was devas- tated." A spokesperson for the center said during a tele- phone interview this morn- ing that the dog was on a leash at the time. Rudy has black fur with a white chest and a red collar. There is not identification on the collar as he chewed on the tag. "He's our hairy little child," Zolman said. She got the dog from a family on Chapman Lake last November around Thanksgiving after seeing him advertised in the Times- Union. There is a $1,500 cash re- ward for finding the dog, and a missing dog ad was pub- lished in the Times-Union four days after he went missing. Zolman said she has put up fliers around town. She said her missing dog is like having a lost child. "I can't imagine what par- ents go through when they have a lost child," Zolman said. If the dog is found, call 574-377-9741 or 574-527- 6194.

County Releases Food Service Inspection Results U.S. Weighs Abstention On Cuba Embargo Vote At U.N. WASHINGTON (AP) - For the first time, the United States may be willing to accept a United Nations condemnation of the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba without a fight, The Associated Press has learned. U.S. officials tell the AP that the Obama administra- tion is weighing abstaining from the annual U.N. General Assembly vote on a Cuban-backed resolution demanding that the embar- go be lifted. The vote could come next month. No decision has yet been made, said four administra- tion officials who weren't authorized to speak publicly on sensitive internal delib- erations and demanded anonymity. But merely con- sidering an abstention is unprecedented. Following through on the idea would send shock waves through both the United Nations and Congress. It is unheard of for a U.N. member state not to oppose resolutions critical of its own laws. And by not actively opposing the resolution, the administration would be effectively siding with the world body against Congress, which has refused to repeal the embar- go despite calls from President Barack Obama to do so. Obama has been urging Congress to scrap the 54- year-old embargo since December, when he announced that Washington and Havana would normal- ize diplomatic relations. The two countries re-opened embassies last month, and Obama has chipped away at U.S. restrictions on trade and travel to Cuba, using executive authorities. But the embargo stands. The latest U.S. easing of sanctions occurred Friday and was followed by a rare phone call between Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro. Pope Francis, who played a key role in the rap- prochement between Havana and Washington, arrived in Havana a day later. He travels to the U.S. this week. The White House said Obama and Castro dis- cussed ''steps that the United States and Cuba can take, together and individu- ally, to advance bilateral cooperation.'' The Cuban government said Castro ''emphasized the need to expand their scope and abrogate, once and for all, the blockade policy for the benefit of both peoples.'' Neither statement men- tioned the U.N. vote. Yet, as it has for the last 23 years, Cuba will introduce a reso- lution at the upcoming General Assembly criticizing the embargo and demand- ing its end. The United States has lost each vote by increas- ingly overwhelming and embarrassing margins. Last year's tally was 188-2 in favor of Cuba with only Israel siding with the U.S. This year's vote will be the first since the U.S. shift in policy toward Cuba. Israel would be expected to vote whichever way the U.S. decides. General Assembly resolu- tions are unenforceable. But the annual exercise has given Cuba a stage to demonstrate America's iso- lation on the embargo, and it has underscored the sense internationally that the U.S. restrictions are ille- gitimate. The administration has not yet decided how to vote, according to the U.S. offi- cials. They said that at the moment the U.S. is still more likely to vote against the resolution than abstain. However, the officials said the U.S. will consider abstaining if the wording of the resolution is significant- ly different than in previous years. The administration is open to discussing revisions with the Cubans and others, they added, something American diplomats have never done before. ''Our vote will ultimately depend on what's in the res- olution,'' one of the officials said. ''This resolution is no different than others in the sense that we won't pre- judge it before it's final.'' Cuba's government had no immediate reaction. An abstention would have political ramifications in the United States, not least among several Republican presidential candidates who want the embargo maintained. And in Congress, where top GOP lawmakers have refused to entertain legisla- tion that would end the embargo, any administra- tion action perceived as endorsing U.N. criticism of the United States could pro- voke anger - even among supporters of the adminis- tration's position. As White House spokesman Josh Earnest noted last week, the embar- go remains the law of the land. ''We still want Congress to take action to remove the embargo,'' he said.
