For the second time this month, the F-B-I is warning law enforcement and the public to be on alert.
Intelligence tips suggest Osama bin laden's terrorist network may strike again soon, as retaliation for the U-S led bombings in Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, the military campaign is said to be moving into a new sustained phase of providing help to opposition forces in Afghanistan.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says American warplanes are now able to hit more Taliban troops.
Jennifer Jones is in Washington this morning with an update on war efforts and the latest on anthrax threats.

"The administration has concluded, based on information developed, that there may be additional terrorist attacks within the United States and against United States interest over the next week."
LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS SAY THE THREAT DID NOT SPECIFY THE TYPE OF ATTACK -- OR THE INTENDED TARGETS. BUT THERE'S SPECULATION IT COULD BE OSAMA BIN LADEN AND HIS AL QAEDA NETWORK RESPONDING TO THE RECENT BOMBINGS IN AFGHANISTAN.

Apparently, not ALL of the money raised for the American Red Cross is going to victims of the terrorist attacks.


After September 11th, the Red Cross created the Liberty Fund, designated for terrorism relief efforts.
But officials say some of the 550 million dollars in donations will be used for other broad- based needs-- like a blood reserve program, a national outreach effort, and a telecommunications upgrade.
A Red Cross spokesman says the organizations believes that it is "honoring donor intent."

Republican Mark Earley served ten years in the state senate, and three and a half as Virginia's attorney general. Now he's running for governor and is currently down ten points in the latest statewide poll.

Earley was born in Norfolk in 1954, the son of a sailor turned shipyard worker and a stay at home mom.
He was a studious kid and a student government president by the 8th grade, and a racial reconciler in high school.


He's a lifetime member of the N-double-ACP
At the College of William and Mary, Earley was an active Christian.
He majored in Religion, worked for the campus ministry after graduation, and spent two years as a missionary at the University of the Philippines in Manila.
It was there, when President Marcos jailed his political rival and declared martial law that Mark Earley melded his faith with his patriotism.

In the state senate, Earley led to victory an 18 year effort to require parental notification for teenagers getting abortions.
He won bi-partisan fans, shepherding a welfare reform compromise through the legislature.
His oratorical power and low key style made him an effective ally of George Allen.
He clearly winces at the failure of his political partner Jim Gilmore to get a budget passed this year.

As Attorney General, a mixed courtroom record is not his proudest accomplishment.
Recruiting 4,000 new mentors for young people is.
A little surgery to fix a droopy eyelid and some new contact lenses were the final touches on his road to the top.


This fall, much of his record and style were set aside to tout one issue: His resolute promise to hold the line on taxes.
