the USS Cole and the hundreds of navy, FBI and private contract
personnel who have come into Aden as a result of the attack on the ship
have already been on a high state of alert. The Cole itself is guarded
by small boats, carrying armed marines.
as many of the us personnel as possible are staying on the small but
powerful fleet of navy warships being kept just offshore here to
minimize their exposure. ...and that of thousands of crew members and
marines already on board the ships. But there is also a sizable
contingent staying at a hotel in the middle of Aden that is being
guarded by marines and troops from the Yemeni army.
a bomb making house
the fact that the bombers of the Cole are now suspected of having used a
network of safe houses and other sights around Aden have led
investigators to conclude that this was a large scale sophisticated
operation. But they are unsure if any of those involved in the attack
might still be in or around Aden and therefore still a threat.
the complex nature of this operation has investigators here still
working on the theory that only osama bin lauden has the resources, the
know now, and the network of contacts necessary to have pulled this off.
But thus far the case against him is largely circumstantial. Lacking

[GRAPHIC=Litton Plant sold]
Litton Industries' Network Access Systems Division is being sold, leaving 100 employees wondering if they will still have a job.
The company says the deal will be finalized within the next two days.
The company also says some of its 100 employees will be let go -- no word yet on how many.

Some of Virginia's trout streams are contaminated and the situation seems to be getting worse.
Volunteers tested more than 450 streams across the state last spring to determine if the waterways were still contaminated from acid rain.
While a few of the streams showed a slight improvement in water quality, the acid levels were getting- worse in the rest.
That's cut the state's brook trout population.
Officials say the new numbers suggest that the 1990 Clean Air Act is not doing enough to protect the nation's ecosystem from pollution.
State officials believe they've pinpointed another source of P-C-B contamination that's affecting the Staunton River
[SUPER=03-Campbell Co./File Tape;]
For months, a 79-mile stretch of the river has been under a state health advisory.
Authorities say soil samples revealed that a wastewater storage pond at the Altavista treatment plant had levels of the cancer-causing chemical that require further evaluation.
The Environmental Protection Agency's cleanup guidelines usually target areas where concentrations are over 50 parts per million.
Sediment at the treatment plant contained far more- 600 parts per million.
Early in the year, officials found that B-G-F Industries in Altavista was also a source of contamination.
The company expects to begin its clean-up in the spring of 2001.
Anti-government protesters took to the streets of Peru, calling for their president's resignation.
Police tried to disperse the violent crowd last night with riot shields and tear gas.
The demonstrations came on the day Peru's feared former spy chief came home, deepening the country's political crisis.
Opponents of President Alberto Fujimori say he should step down and turn over power to a transitional government that would force out those loyal to the ex- spy chief.
Fujimori has already said he plans to shorten his third term, and leave the presidency in July of next year.
More than a dozen guns were seized by Roanoke police last week from the man suspected of poisoning dogs along Memorial Avenue.
According to the search warrant return filed yesterday, James William Bowers kept an arsenal that included a 9- millimeter (Rooger) Ruger, a .357-Magnum, an automatic rifle and a pellet rifle... 14 guns in all.
Bowers was once convicted of assault and ordered to surrender all firearms.
Police obtained the warrant based on information from neighbors who said Bowers had shot at their dogs- -or threatened to- -before.
In addition to the guns and ammo, police seized a container of anti-freeze and some hamburger from Bowers' home.
They believe Bowers set meat out in neighbors' yards to entice the dogs, and that the meat was laced with anti-freeze.
A drug informant who gave a bogus tip to police has been found guilty of lying to authorities
Johnny Wayne Sexton was ordered to repay the town 760-dollars for two doors busted down during the May drug raid.
On his bogus tip, authorities invaded the home of William and Geneva Summers in the middle of the night.
They found NO drugs -- just one frightened couple.
The Summers family has retained the help of Dublin attorney Tommy Baker.
Baker says the family may sue town police for not checking the tip out.
Prospective homeowners along Leesville Lake may not know the water level is unpredictable.
The lake rises and falls by up to 13 feet, with no pattern or warning.
That's because the dam pumps water in and out of Leesville Lake to make electricity.
So new homeowners must build floating docks and pay extra to protect their shoreline.
And boaters may not expect the changes in depth.
