Joseph Hair/Homeowner: This house is

WILL BE HOMES THAT RELY ON OIL.

PROCEED WITH CAUTION.


John Brigantino, New Age Fuel Oil Corp.
28:41 - Filling up your tank when you
really don't need oil, is just, again,
gambling. If you fill up today, and oil
prices turn out to drop, you've made an
error.


Alexis bridge: That's the gamble for
homeowners here in the Northeast, where
heating oil is most popular. But over
half of all American homes use natural


gas instead...and they'll be feeling
THE PINCH, too.

THE INCREASE FOR NATURAL GAS IS LESS
EXTREME THAN FOR HEATING OIL...ABOUT A


TEN PERCENT INCREASE..WHICH TRANSLATES

Now scientists have discovered an
interesting side effect.


It may help put alcoholics on the road
to recovery. :12



(NATS)


In a study funded by the maker of


Topomax. researchers recruited hundreds
of


alcoholics... still drinking.


Doctors found patients given topiramate
had significantly fewer heavy drinking


days.


And previous research has shown the
drug can assist alcoholics who've
stopped


drinking. Stay sober. :15

help patients give up alcohol and stay

"THE PATIENT HAS LESS CRAVINGS FOR THE

(STANDUP: Dr. Sean Kenniff/CBS

Doctors aren't exactly sure how Topomax
cuts down on cravings.


It's believed the drug works by
satisfying certain addiction centers in
the


brain.... And that action seems to help
with more than just alcohol. :10 (:53)



(NATS)


Previous studies have suggested
topiramate may help people quit
smoking. curb


cocaine addiction. and even treat binge
eating disorder. :07



(NATS)


There are already F-D-A approved
medications on the market for
alcoholism.


But it's believed topiramate works in a
different way.


So if the drug is eventually approved
for addiction- it could give


psychologists like Jim Bott (bought)
another treatment option for his
patients

what has to be the world's luckiest
marsupial.


CHANNEL=A VO-NAT

*CG locator Bathurst, Australia


During a car race on Saturday, a
kangaroo hopped onto the track and
continued down the road. The drivers
had to slam on the brakes. Several had
to swerve and run off the track just
missing the animal.


No one was hurt and the animal was
able to get off the course safely
before returning to the wild.


Incidentially kangaroos can run up
to 30 miles an hour. While that is
fast for an animal, he would have been
too slow to qualify for the race.
