Some area companies that clean up the environment say the fund that pays them - is drying up. The Virginia Petroleum Storage Tank Fund has seen a 20-MILLION-dollar shortage ... so the state is falling FAR behind in reimbursing environmental contractors who clean up leaking petroleum. Andrew Alden says the state owes a MILLION dollars to his company - Environmental Engineering of Blacksburg. The state hopes to repair the funding shortage... by possibly increasing the deductible on claims to 10-THOUSAND dollars. But some contractors fear that would discourage people from cleaning up leaky tanks.

It's Alaska's LARGEST gold nugget... and it's now on display at the Anchorage Museum of History and Art. This 25-pounder was discovered in 1998 - the 100-th anniversary of the gold rush in Alaska's Ruby Mining District. A man found it when he was bulldozing. The museum says the coconut-sized-nugget is a hundred times more rare than a five-carat diamond. (------------) [Super=X5043 (clears FX)]
