Energy Secretary Bill Richardson says a grand jury has been convened to investigate the mystery of the disappearing hard drives. Richardson told the Senate Armed Services Committee that it's part of a major inquiry into what happened to the drives -- why they were missing, why they reappeared, and who is involved.
Richardson says experts have determined that the hard drives found last week are authentic. He says there's still no evidence of espionage -- but that some people are giving conflicting statements.
The energy secretary says he's outraged by what's taken place. Earlier, Committee Chairman, Virginia Senator John Warner told Richardson that he will be held accountable.

The latest proposal would have students at Back Creek, Oak Grove, and Cave Spring Elementary attend Hidden Valley Junior High and then the new high school. Students at Bent Mountain, Clearbrook, Green Valley, and Penn Forest would attend Cave Spring Junior High and then Cave Spring High School.
Parents say this might be the best plan out of the three to keep students together.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it wants its money back - at least three million dollars of it.
FEMA gave Virginia the money for cleanup after the blizzard of 1996. Now federal auditors say the Commonwealth shouldn't have gotten three million dollars of that aid - because the state sent in duplicate snow removal bills, and wrongly charged FEMA for the costs of spreading salt and abrasives on the road.
