This woman says for six days they werent telling us a lot, and nothing, nothing concrete. She says they did not care for saving those sailors on board.


Navy officials say most of the Kursk crew were probably killed after an explosion sent the submarine to the bottom of the sea, and any survivors probably drowned as the ship filled with water.

Still the commander of the British rescue team says its mission will continue until the Russians tell them cease their operation.

How many bites does it take to eat a 6-hundred foot long banana split? You can ask the dozens of people that came out today....

[SUPER=03-Salem;]

for the second annual Salem's Largest Banana Split Bash. The split this year doubled the length of last year's. It was held at the Salem Ice Cream Parlor and it was free for everyone. The banana split wasn't the only attraction though. There was live music, special areas set up for children and face painting - as well as plenty of other great food.
