Hurricane Frances is moving slowly towards the Florida coast. She's expected to make landfall sometime tonight.


Although Frances has been downgraded to a category two storm -- many are still concerned about the amount of rain she will bring.
Experts predict she could came ashore with 20 inches of rain or more.
Florida's Governor has already issued a state of emergency for the state.
But it's the eastern Coast of Florida that's expected to feel the brunt of her fury.
For the latest on Frances we know go to Brian Andrews in Juno, Beach, Florida.

Police say the child was sitting in the front seat of a car on Linwood Road when he found a gun inside the vehicle. It went off and the boy was killed.
The child's father was standing outside the car at the time of the shooting talking to another person.
Police have not released the child's name or the names of his parents.
Another shooting last night -this one in Appomattox County, authorities say a father shot his son. Deputies say they had been arguing in the Redhouse section of the county when the father shot his son in the leg with a shotgun. The father has been taken into custody and the son was taken to the hospital. There has been no word on his condition.

President George Bush is leading John Kerry in the polls.
Time Magazine polled more than 900 hundred likely voters during the Republican National Convention and found Bush had an 11-percent lead over Kerry. The margin of error was plus or minus four percentage points.
But poll experts point out that surveys taken during conventions are often skewed because they're taken when the public's focus is just on one party. They do say however --those polls can sometimes foreshadow a longer lasting bounce.

[SUPER=04-Focus Films;]

(("Vanity Fair" (Focus Films) Review by: Joel Sink
"Vanity Fair" has it all. Incredible location shots, fabulous costumes and good actors. Somehow, it ends up feeling very empty. I haven't read the novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, but I am told that it is substantial and perhaps too complex to be made into a two hour and twenty minute movie.
We begin with a young Becky Sharp negotiating the selling price for a treasured painting of her mother to a wealthy englishman, The Marquess of Steyne (Gabriel Byrne). She is all too aware of the differences between her life and his. Becky's penniless family offers her to a wealthy family as a servant in return for her education.(I think, though I wasn't really sure of the arrangement) As an adult Becky (Reese Witherspoon) is befriended by Amelia Sedley (Romola Garai) who takes her home and introduces her to some of the upper crust of society. Becky sets her sights on a life she has never known, but is hungry to experience.
The amount of information presented here is almost overwhelming. There are so many characters with complicated names it is very difficult to keep up with who's who. With one edit we move ahead 12 years and a major character has died of some tropical disease. Whoa, slow down! In my opinion, the written material just didn't translate well to a movie just barely over two hours. In defense of Director Mira Nair's epic, the look and feel of the film are wonderful. I almost thought I was watching one of the great Merchant-Ivory films like "Room with a View". The locations, set decoration and wardrobe are amazing. There are also some outstanding actors giving excellent performances. Reese Witherspoon is charming as Becky. Romola Garai is also memorable. James Pufefoy (Bedrooms and Hallways) also turns in a good performance.
The problems here don't keep "Vanity Fair" from being an enjoyable experience. I did, however, walk out of the theatre thinking that I had missed a lot by not having read the book first.
