A group linked to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (AH'-boo MOO'-sahb al- zahr-KOW'-ee) is claiming responsibility for car bombing today that killed three British soldiers and an Iraqi translator at a check point south of Baghdad.
The troops were part of a group of British soldiers deployed to the area last month to free-up U-S forces for an expected assault on Fallujah.
That assault is already underway.

The State Board of Elections says it's now looking into the problem. Once a person turns in an application to register to vote, the D-M-V forwards it to the State Board of Elections.

The National Transportation Safety Board has released more information on the Hendrick Motorsports Plane Crash.
The preliminary report does not draw any conclusions about the cause of the fatal crash. But it indicates the plane failed to make the proper maneuver after it missed its approach to the runway.

((The missed approach procedure at Blue Ridge Airport calls for a climbing right turn, but the plane never altered its course as it passed over the runway. At 12:26, the plane was on the final segment of its approach. It leveled off at 2600 feet, before beginning another gradual descent. At 12:30 and three miles beyond the airport, the plane was at 1800 feet before controllers lost its altitude readout.


Three minutes after that, the flight crew indicated a missed approach, and controllers advised the crew to climb, but there were no more radio transmissions.
The plane came to rest on the southeast face of Bull Mountain at an elevation of about Two thousand four hundred fifty feet. Investigators did not talk with anyone who saw the crash, but witnesses did hear the plane as it passed over the airport, and saw it as it approached Bull Mountain. Though the plane was flying low, witnesses said the engine sounded fine. Witnesses said the mountain was completely obscured by fog and clouds at the time of the crash. [STANDUP-CLOSE] The Beech 200 King Air had been inspected in June, and it was equippied with a Global Positioning System receiver, but it did not have a cockpit voice recorder, a flight data recorder or a ground proximity warning system.
It may be several months before members of the National Transportation Safety Board issue a ruling on the probable cause of the crash. Joe Dashiell News 7))

[SUPER=07-Joel's Take: 10 out of 10]


(("The Incredibles" (Pixar/Disney) Review by: Joel Sink I've been a fan of Pixar's brand of computer animated films since they only made short subject films. I remember sitting in a theater 13 years ago watching "Knick Knack" for the first time. (For Pixar buffs, this short film also appeared before last year's "Finding Nemo".) I was enthralled! I've seen all of their films and I'm probably the biggest "Finding Nemo" fan around. Well, there's a new favorite in town and it's called "The Incredibles". "The Incredibles" begins with a group of super heroes (with super powers) who do, well, what super heroes do. They save the world from evil. On his way to his own wedding, Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson) rescues a man who is attempting suicide. Mr. Suicide is injured in the process and files a lawsuit against Mr. Incredible because he was injured and actually wanted to die. This lawsuit starts an avalanche of lawsuits against the super heroes. (Sounds familiar doesn't it?) The government agrees to wipe away all of the lawsuits if the super heroes go into hiding and don't use their powers. All of the super heroes reluctantly agree and we find Mr. Incredible married to Elastigirl (voiced by Holly Hunter) raising their three children. Mr. Incredible is approached by a mystery woman who wants to hire him to quietly get rid of an intelligent robot-run-amok on a remote island. Mr. Incredible succeeds and discovers that it was all a trap to get him to this remote island where he is held captive. Can't tell you more. You'll have to see it to see where it goes from here. Pixar has got it. They find a way to make unforgettable movies with memorable characters, action and simple, yet compelling stories. They have gone even further with "The Incredibles". The story, while somewhat more complicated, is tight and easy to follow. The animation is the best there is. Watch for the scene where Dash Incredible is being chased by some bad guys. Incredible! The scene is visually stunning, exciting and funny at the same time. I laughed out loud many times and went home feeling like I was a kid again. Incredible! The voice talent is top notch. I don't know that Craig T. Nelson would have been on the tip of my tongue if had been asked to help cast the voice of Mr. Incredible. He did an outstanding job, though and so did Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson and Jason Lee. If you want to have a great time and feel like a kid again, you won't be disappointed with "The Incredibles".

Rated: PG Joel's take: 10 out of 10))
