GRAPHIC=Iraq A news report says the commander


of U-S forces in Iraq wants even more
troops.

The Boston Globe reports General
David Petraeus Pa-trey-us is going to
ask for another Army combat aviation
unit.

The three-thousand-or-so troops
would support the more than 26-thousand
already part of President Bush's
buildup plan.

Congressional Democrats vow no
letup to their challenge of President
Bush's Iraq policy.

A House committee approved a
troop withdrawal deadline of September
First, 2008.

But a softer Senate plan went
down to defeat.


A bill that called for a troop
withdrawal to begin within 120 days
fell 12 votes short of the 60 it needed
for passage.

Parents who have chosen a

non-traditional route for their
children's education welcome the chance
for some mainstream experience.

Different states have different
ways of accomodating homeschool
athletics, so for many of the kids
playing here this week, this is their
first chance at experiencing a
tournament atmosphere.

Davis says he's planning a return
trip for the tournament next year.
