his

April 2004...His captors wanted to


trade him for Iraqi prisoners but the
U-S military wouldn't negotiate.



Another tape surfaced a couple months
later, supposedly showing an American


soldier's execution....But the dark and
grainy images revealed only the back


of the victim's head and not the
actual shooting. Finally - after 4
long


years - Maupin's fate is known.

Meanwhile - Baghdad's US-protected
Green Zone is AGAIN under attack this


morning, just hours after authorities
lifted a 3-day curfew aimed at stopping


the recent surge of violence.



An estimated 400 people have been
killed during the past week in clashes


between US-backed government forces
and Shia militias. The clashes started


in Basra after the government began
raiding militia strongholds but quickly


spread to other southern cities and
flared in the capital.



The strength of the resistance took the
government by surprise...Forcing them


to bring in reinforcements and ask for
coalition airstrikes.



Powerful shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr
has ordered the militiamen off the


streets but demanded the government
stop arresting his followers.



(oncam)


Pentagon officials are now warning that
if the clashes continue, some of the


hard-won security gains may be at risk.

If a CFL breaks on a hard

If one breaks on a rug or carpet,
you can use a vacuum, but empty the

of it in a sealed plastic bag.

The CFLs are great for energy

Leo TOSSES TO BUMP OUT OF 7 DAY PLANNER (weather bug)


(TITAN)

BUMP < Center. The weekend "wedge" of clouds
and cool temperatures will continue
through Tuesday. Temperatures remain in
the mid 40s today. Clouds, light
showers, areas of drizzle and patchy
fog will continue Monday, Monday night
and Tuesday. The big difference in the
day-to-day forecast will be a steady
warming trend as a warm front lifts to
our north. Highs Monday are expected in
the upper 40s. Lows Monday night will
stay steady. Tuesday, while still
dreary, highs will rocket to near 70.


Clearing is expected Wednesday with
cooler temperatures in the upper 50s.


Another wedge will attempt to develop
Thursday and Friday, but this one
should be weaker and less impressive.
Generally, a few showers are forecast
late Thursday and Friday. With any
luck, we'll dry out in time for the
weekend.


MONDAY: Light showers, drizzle & fog.
High: 48


Have a great week! Meteorologist Leo

The last time anyone saw the Army
reservist was on THIS videotape after
his


convoy was ambushed west of Baghdad in
April 2004...His captors wanted to


trade him for Iraqi prisoners but the
U-S military wouldn't negotiate.



Another tape surfaced a couple months
later, supposedly showing an American


soldier's execution....But the dark and
grainy images revealed only the back


of the victim's head and not the
actual shooting. Finally - after 4
long


years - Maupin's fate is known.

COMPLETED -


HE'S COMING HOME."



(nats)


Meanwhile - Baghdad's US-protected
Green Zone is AGAIN under attack this


morning, just hours after authorities


lifted a 3-day curfew aimed at stopping


the recent surge of violence.



An estimated 400 people have been
killed during the past week in clashes


between US-backed government forces
and Shia militias. The clashes started


in Basra after the government began
raiding militia strongholds but quickly


spread to other southern cities and
flared in the capital.



The strength of the resistance took the
government by surprise...Forcing them


to bring in reinforcements and ask for
coalition airstrikes.



Powerful shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr
has ordered the militiamen off the


streets but demanded the government
stop arresting his followers.



(oncam)


Pentagon officials are now warning that
if the clashes continue, some of the


hard-won security gains may be at risk.

CLINTON AND OBAMA ARE LOOKING AHEAD TO

OBAMA GAVE HIS OPINION ON WHETHER



CLINTON SHOULD DROP OUT:

Sen. Barack Obama
My attitude is that Senator Clinton can

run as long as she wants. Her name is



on the ballot. She's a fierce and



formidable competitor. And she



obviously believes that she would make



the best nominee and the best



President.

The two organizations send
representatives to Habitat homes and
replace the owner's standard lightbulbs
with CFLs for free.


The plan is to install at least
500 CFLs in the Habitat homes.


Each bulb uses 75-percent less
energy and last ten times longer than
standard lightbulbs.


The RVCCC estimates the 500 bulbs
will save homeowners a combined
20-thousand dollars in electricity and

While compact fluorescent bulbs
save money in energy costs, there is
some concern about the mercury inside
of the CFLs.


The EPA says there's less mercury
in the lightbulbs than in a


thermometer.

In case of breakage, open
windows, leave the room for 15 minutes
and shut off your central air.

LIVE=BOB FULL AT BAM LIVE FULL


If a CFL breaks on a hard
surface, the EPA says, do not use a
vacuum or a broom to clean it up.


If one breaks on a rug or carpet,
you can use a vacuum, but empty the
canister or remove the bag and dispose
of it in a sealed plastic bag.


The CFLs are great for
energy saving, but everyone needs to be
careful in handling them.

TITAN < Center. The weekend "wedge" of clouds LEO TOSS STRAIGHT TO COMMERCIAL and cool temperatures will continue
through Tuesday. Temperatures remain in COMM the mid 40s today. Clouds, light
showers, areas of drizzle and patchy
fog will continue Monday, Monday night
and Tuesday. The big difference in the
day-to-day forecast will be a steady
warming trend as a warm front lifts to
our north. Highs Monday are expected in
the upper 40s. Lows Monday night will
stay steady. Tuesday, while still
dreary, highs will rocket to near 70.


Clearing is expected Wednesday with
cooler temperatures in the upper 50s.


Another wedge will attempt to develop
Thursday and Friday, but this one


should be weaker and less impressive.
Generally, a few showers are forecast
late Thursday and Friday. With any
luck, we'll dry out in time for the
weekend.


MONDAY: Light showers, drizzle & fog.
High: 48


Have a great week! Meteorologist Leo
