The recall involves analog projection T-V's made between 1995 and 1998. It's an expansion of an even larger recall in 1998. A tear in a gasket is to blame-- Coolant fluid can leak from the picture tube- which can cause smoking and charring, posing a fire hazard. In the past five years Zenith has received 45 reports of such incidents, including four where property damage occurred. If you have one of these televisions you can contact Zenith at 800- 777- 5195.

This will mark Dodge's third trip back to Daytona since returning to Winston Cup racing. Two years ago - Dodge swept the front row with Bill Elliott and Stacy Compton, and last year Dodge won the 500 with Ward Burton. But despite those successes - the man who led Dodge back into racing at this level - says building teams from the ground up has been as tough as mastering a Rubik's Cube.

An athletic complex that the school is building will most likely not be ready for spring football or when the season starts in September. They could practice on the fields when they are ready, but the land is not zoned for athletic competition. So now the school is trying to work with Buena Vista to use one of the existing fields in the city.
