((((CORRESPONDENT SCRIPT)) S: WASHINGTON, DC

In Washington, final preparations are underway for a Fourth of July extravaganza -- expected to draw hundreds of thousands to the national mall.

But it comes just as a new government study....commissioned by the US Park Service --warns that NINE of the nation's most famous and picturesque monuments, are vulnerable to terrorist attack.

Its conclusion: staffing at the monuments by US Park Police is weak - making it impossible to all the monuments all the time

Doors are left unlocked -- or unmanned, and the department's communications equipment is antiquated and unreliable.

In short, security needs to be upgraded -- and so does the Park Police budget.

There IS reason to worry. In 1982, a man threatened to blow up the Washington Monument with a truckload of dynamite. He chose it, he told police, because it was easily accessible.
Since then...makeshift barriers have gone up.

In 1994 -- a man fired shots at the White House from Pennsylvania Avenue. Now the street is closed off to traffic.

(COWAN ON CAM)

"But the results of the study raise another question: how much is too much security? And are Americans growing obsessed with creating the impossible -- a society that's risk free."
Terrorism expert Brian Jenkins says any report LOOKING for security lapses, will most likely find them.. But adds...

(SOT/ BRIAN JENKINS, TERRORISM EXPERT )

" THE AVERAGE AMERICAN HAS ABOUT A ONE IN FIFTEEN MILLION CHANCE OF DYING IN A TERRORIST BOMBING. IT IS A RISK, BUT THE RISK TO THE AVERAGE CITIZEN IS INFINITESIMAL."

And many tourists enjoy the openness of America's public places.

(SOT/MOS -NO SUPER)

"I think you've got to be able to allow people to walk freely, I really do. Or you'll not get the people to come to your city."

(NARR:)


People come here to reflect on the city's symbols of democracy -- not its symbols of fear. .

DILWORTH ELEMENTARY NEAR MORRHEAD, MINNESOTA HAS SOMETHING UNIQUE.


EVERY DAY IN ONE OF THE THREE FIRST GRADE CLASSES SITS EIGHTY TWO YEAR OLD MARGARET SEVERSON, A VERY SPECIAL PERSON WHO IS THE KIDS OFFICIAL FOSTER GRANDPARENT.

(NAT SOT - "Gonna have you read your book to me.")



GRANDMA SEVERSON COMES INTO THE CLASSROOM EVERY DAY TO GIVE THE KIDS SOME ONE ON ONE ATTENTION... AND ENCOURAGEMENT.

(NAT SOT - "You've done such a good job on them... and they are so

pretty." )

AND IT ALL COMES WITH A LIBERAL DOSE OF AFFECTION.

(NAT SOT - "Can you give me a hug?")



MARGARET SEVERSON HAS BEEN COMING TO THE SCHOOL FOR TWO YEARS. SHE SAYS SHE'S TOO YOUNG JUST TO STAY HOME.

(SOT - GRANNY "It's a purpose for me to get up in the morning and get

going. The days get pretty long when you sit around.")

SOME OF THESE FIRST GRADERS GET MORE FROM GRANDMA SEVERSON THAN JUST HELP WITH THEIR SCHOOL WORK.
PRINCIPAL PEGGY HANSON SAYS BROKEN HOMES ARE MORE COMMON THESE DAYS AND IT'S THE KIDS THAT LOSE THE MOST.

(SOT - HANSON "We have such a need in our school with kids that are

from single family homes.")

(SOT - "There is a need. They need as many caring adults as they

can.")

MARGARET HAS SEVEN GRANDCHILDREN OF HER OWN... BUT THEY DON'T NEED HER SOM MUCH ANYMORE.

(SOT - GRANNY "My grandchildren are all grown-up.")



SO IT'S A TWO-WAY STREET. THE KIDS GET A GRANDMA IN THE CLASSROOM TO HELP AND TO HUG AND MARGARET GETS SOMETHING BACK THAT SHE NEEDS VERY BADLY.

(SOT - GRANNY "That's pretty great when you are old to have somebody

tell you that you are a pretty nice lady and that I love you.")

(SOT - GRANNY "And I love them all!")



RECENTLY MARGARET HAD TO SPEND SOME TIME IN THE HOSPITAL AND THE SEPARATION WAS PAINFUL FOR HER AND HER KIDS.

(SOT - GRANNY "I was really lonesome... Really, really lonesome.")



BUT IF THERE IS ONE THING THAT FIRST GRADERS ARE GOOD AT, IT'S SHOWING THEIR FEELINGS ON PAPER. GRANDMA SEVERSON GOT LOTS OF CARDS.
