Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Officials say one person is "gravely ill" in the latest anthrax case.
The Washington D-C postal worker is the third person in the U-S diagnosed with the inhaled form of anthrax.
Five other people are sick with suspicious symptoms in the D-C area, and are awaiting test results.
Meanwhile, the Capitol building should re- open today.
But House and Senate office buildings will stay closed until testing for anthrax is finished.
Investigators have found traces of anthrax in four buildings.
So far, 28 people have tested positive for exposure.
As for President Bush, he is back at the White House after meetings in China with leaders of the Pacific rim nations.
One of his final meetings was with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Afterward, both leaders said the terrorist attacks on America unified their nations like never before. Jennifer Jones is in Washington this morning with an update.

((
While the House and Senate remain closed this morning for a final round of Anthrax testing before getting back to business on Tuesday, 5 more people are showing symptoms of the disease, two have been hospitalized. This comes as a postal employee is diagnosed with inhaled anthrax and another 21 hundred-mail workers are set to be tested.

SOT: Steve Brown/Administrator, Inova Fairfax Hospital

The patient is listed in serious but stable condition and is being treated aggressively with antibiotics.
At the White House, President Bush returned from a successful trip to the economic summit in China where the U.S. war on terrorism overshadowed talks on free trade and global investing. The President gained support from several key Pacific Rim nations for the U.S. coalition while securing the full backing of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

SOT: George W. Bush

Today the world is building a broad international coalition against terrorism, and Russia is taking a full and responsible role in the coalition.
As coalition building makes progress, so does the military offensive. The third week of air strikes began with raids on Kabul and front line positions to the North. Casualties are said to be mounting, but the main objective, Osam Bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda network, still remain. ))

((((NAT SOUND OF CRAIG KINGERY AT PODIUM))
Craig Kingery is the Republican candidate seeking to become Roanoke County's next Commissioner of Revenue.
He's currently the treasurer of the county's Republican party.
He's also a practicing C-P-A.
[SOT 1:59:48]

Kingery is also asking voters to forgive a mistake.
While working as a store clerk 13 years ago, Kingery helped his cousin steal some items from a department store.
He was 20 at the time and entered a guilty plea to a misdemeanor.
[SOT 2:02:10]

Nancy Horn is Kingery's opponent in the election.
The Democratic candidate says she only makes Kingery's past an issue when asked by voters or the media.

((NANCY HORN/DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: WHEN I WAS ASKED BY THE REPORTER IF I WOULD HIRE THAT PERSON I SAID NO.))

Horn says she would rather talk about her own record.
One that includes being Chief Deputy in the county's revenue office for the past nine years.
She's also been secretary-treasurer of her own corporation for twenty two years.
But, unlike her opponent, she is not a C-P-A.
[SOT 2:03:51]

The owner's an American citizen, born in Egypt, who asked the government's help investigating a threat against him.

One viewer from Woodlawn (Brandy Edwards) was outraged.
"Ciro's Pizza has been in this community since before I even moved here. Several people have eaten there and most on more than just a one time basis. Now because of cowards related to his ethnic background we deprive him of business. This is wrong and I am ashamed of the people who support not eating in Ciro's you should be ashamed and you are no better than the terrorist that attacked us on September 11, 2001. This is not the message we should be teaching our children."

In Medical news this morning, more information on late night shifts and a woman's risk of breast cancer.
(------------)
[VO-NAT CONUS 4:31:57]


Working the graveyard shift could mean an increase in a woman's risk of breast cancer.
Two recent, independent studies came to that conclusion.
The studies in the october 17th issue of the journal of the National Cancer Institute, found women working the night shift for at least 3 years increased their risks by 8 to 60 per cent.
One reasorn is that bright lights cause the body to produce less melatonin and more estrogen.
Higher levels of estrogen is related to an increased risk of breast cancer.
While these findings are significant, researchers still believe they need to find associations between work shifts and other cancer risk factors like smoking or obesity.

New concerns about bio-terrorism have led the government to announce it wants to buy 300- million doses of smallpox vaccine, enough to inoculate every American.
A smallpox epidemic would be much worse than Anthrax, because smallpox is contagious and more deadly.
Meanwhile, a postal worker in Washington D-C is the third person to come down with the inhaled form of Anthrax, and is said to be "gravely ill".
Five other people are sick, with suspicious symptoms in the D-C area.

((WITH THE FLU SHOT CUPBOARD BEING ON THE BARE SIDE- MOST AMERICANS ARE BEING TOLD TO HOLD OFF ON BEING IMMUNIZED THIS YEAR.
NORMALLY- WE ENCOURAGE ALMOST EVERYONE TO BEGIN GETTING THEIR SHOTS NOW- BUT BECAUSE OF THE FLU SHOT SHORTAGES- WE ARE TELLING MOST PEOPLE TO WAIT UNTIL LATE NOVEMBER, EARLY DECEMBER
BUT- IF YOU ARE IN A HIGH RISK GROUP- YOU DONT WANT TO WAIT UNTIL DECEMBER
WHAT WOULD MAKE YOU HIGH RISK?
IF YOU ARE OVER THE AGE OF 65
IF YOU HAVE A CHRONIC HEALTH PROBLEM SUCH AS ASTHMA, DIABETES, OR HEART PROBLEMS
RESIDENTS OF NURSING HOMES SHOULD ALSO GET THEIR FLU SHOTS NOW
PREGNANT WOMEN WHO WILL BE ENTERING THEIR 2ND OR THIRD TRIMESTER IN THE NEXT MONTH OR SO--
AND- ROUNDING OUT THE LIST: HEALTH CARE WORKERS
FLU SEASON IS NOT EXPECTED TO KICK IN UNTIL DECEMBER- AND IT GENERALLY PEAKS JANUARY THROUGH MARCH.
THE FLU SHOT TAKES ABOUT 2 WEEKS TO REALLY PROTECT YOU- IF YOU WOULD GET SICK BEFORE YOU ARE IMMUNIZED- SEE YOUR DOCTOR-- WE DO HAVE MEDICINES YOU CAN TAKE THAT WILL LESSEN THE SEVERITY AND LENGTH OF YOUR ILLNESS

((
While the House and Senate remain closed this morning for a final round of Anthrax testing before getting back to business on Tuesday, 5 more people are showing symptoms of the disease, two have been hospitalized. This comes as a postal employee is diagnosed with inhaled anthrax and another 21 hundred-mail workers are set to be tested.

SOT: Steve Brown/Administrator, Inova Fairfax Hospital

The patient is listed in serious but stable condition and is being treated aggressively with antibiotics.
At the White House, President Bush returned from a successful trip to the economic summit in China where the U.S. war on terrorism overshadowed talks on free trade and global investing. The President gained support from several key Pacific Rim nations for the U.S. coalition while securing the full backing of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

SOT: George W. Bush

Today the world is building a broad international coalition against terrorism, and Russia is taking a full and responsible role in the coalition.
As coalition building makes progress, so does the military offensive. The third week of air strikes began with raids on Kabul and front line positions to the North. Casualties are said to be mounting, but the main objective, Osam Bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda network, still remain. ))
