designed to force the removal of U-S
combat troops from Iraq.

"Today the congress is going to end

this war, this fiasco that we should

have never begun."



The 124 billion dollar spending bill
finances continued military and

reconstruction efforts in Iraq and
Afghanistan �but it comes with a BIG

clause�no money unless troops return
home by September 2008.



Sot: Rep. Joe Wilson/R-South Carolina

"This bill is dangerous for our troops
and dangerous for America."

Critics also accuse House democrats of
attaching huge pork-barrel

domestic spending projects to the bill
to secure more votes.



Sot: Rep. Patrick McHenry/R-North

"74 million dollars for peanut storage,
well that may be grand for some

washington politicians and peanut
growers but how does that help and

protect our American way of life and
our men and women in harm's way."

our troops need and deserve

With a build-up worthy of the biggest
celebrity... In front of the


assembled lenses of international
media... And a gaggle of adoring

fans.. (sot knut, knut, knut)





Knut the polar bear made his public
debut.



At fifteen weeks, and just over twenty
pounds.. The little cub is

considered sturdy enough to begin to
get used to the limelight.



But the big world is a scary place..
Even when seen from the safety of a

bear enclosure.. And Knut never strayed
far from the keeper who has

raised him since birth



(bad momma or baby pix)

Knut and his twin were rejected by
their mother.. She left them on a

rock to die.



Knut has thrived on a bottle fed diet
of baby formula and cod liver

oil..the first polar bear born in the
Berlin zoo to live in more than

thirty years.






After Germans began falling in love
with the tale of the bear,

(NEWSPAPER HEADLINES)

animal rights activists suggested he
should not have been allowed to

live...that as a wild animal, he was
becoming too much of a pet...



The zoo was outraged by talk of lethal
injection



Andreas Ochs, Berlin Zoo
1411643Nonsense a violation of animal
rights



And animal rights groups, realizing
they were on the losing side of a

p.r. Battle..quickly endorsed the bear



( Evamarie Koenig, German Association
for Animal Welfare)192306 of

course we should celebrate that every
bear that can be saved is this is

good news of course.



For Knut.. He will stay in Berlin for
another year or so.. Never mixing

with the other polar bears there..


They have rejected him once...to try to
reacquaint them again would risk

not just rejection, but death.



His future probably lies in another
zoo..perhaps with another group of

bears



(best of knut with keeper)



In the coming months.. He will grow
beyond the cuddly cub stage...at

maturity, he will weigh nearly one
thousand pounds...for his keeper and

knut.. That will mean the end to their
most intimate friendship.

VO-NAT Sears says this fall- Roanoke is



holding it 125th celebration-and that
would have conflicted with Affair in
the square.. and a year from December -
Center in the Square will hold its 25th
celebration... that means the earliest
Affair could come back..

Spring of 2009--- Sears says the


event may be re-invented and he's hopes
to get public input about what kind of
event people would like.

The Wine Festival will still take
place.

GRAPHIC=MEN'S FINAL FOUR March Madness isn't just reserved


for teams playing in the Sweet 16.

Yesterday Kentucky head coach
Tubby Smith announced that he's leaving
with four years left on his contract to
coach at the University of Minnesota.

*CG file NCAA

In 10 years at Kentucky, Smith
won 263 and lost just 83. His teams
went to the NCAA Tournament every
season, and won the 1998 national
championship.

But the Wildcats haven't been
back to the Final Four since 98 and
some people have called for his
dismissal.


They won't have a chance to fire
him now - his new job at Minnesota will


pay him $1 point 8 million a season.
