the world. The way, he says, is not


through violence but human rights.



SOT - RELIGIOUS FREEDOM SOT



TRACK: He's only the third pope in
history to address the United Nations.
The


German pontiff said too much power lies
in the hands of too few - although he


never specified which countries he
meant.

TRACK: He's been critical, in the past,
of the Iraq War ... but Pope Benedict


never mentioned it. Instead, he focused
on world leaders joining hands to


solve issues like security, hunger,
and the environment .



Standup bridge: AFTER LEAVING THE
UNITED NATIONS, POPE BENEDICT SHOWED
THE


CATHOLIC CHURCH IS COMMITTED TO FORGING
NEW BONDS. HE VISITED AN "AMERICAN"


SYNAGOGUE ... THE FIRST TIME EVER BY A
POPE.



(Shalom!)



TRACK: Speaking before a modern
orthodox congregation on the east side,
the


visit on the eve of Passover was
largely symbolic ... but still
significant.



(nats)



TRACK: Afterwards, the Pontiff was
greeted outside St. Joseph's church by


adoring fans ... before meeting with
religious leaders of many denominations


.... where his message of strict
interpretation of the Gospel was more


conservative.



Sot (the world is losing its
bearings....)



TRACK: This weekend, Pope Benedict will


go to Ground Zero to meet with victims


of 9/11, and he'll address a crowd
expected to be over 50-thousand ...

he holds mass at Yankee stadium. Teri

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. The sunny weather from the
last few days is about to end. An upper
level area of low pressure will come
out of the mid Mississippi River Valley
over the weekend, spilling more clouds
into our region, as well as occasional
showers and possible thunderstorms.
Tonight, expect clear to partly cloudy
skies with mild temperatures near 50.
Winds will be light. Look for a blend
of sunshine and clouds to begin your
Saturday, followed by increasing clouds
in the afternoon. Rain showers are


looking possible by mid afternoon.
Highs are forecast in the mid 70s.
Saturday night's lows again fall to
around 50 with scattered showers. The
unsettled weather continues into Sunday
with highs not as warm in the mid 60s.
Monday carries a 40% shower chance.
Highs in the mid to upper 60s. With any
luck, we'll see drier weather by next
Tuesday. For weather anytime turn to

But the game itself was all
Hillcats.


Already up 1-nothing, Steve
Lerud slaps one to the right side of
the infield. Jim Negrych scores on the
groundout and it was 2-nothing
Lynchburg in the 4th.


Later Jared Keel lifts a fly
to short center field that drops. Kent *CG final Lynchburg Sakamato comes in to score and there 11 was a lot more where that came from. Salem The Hillcats went on to win it by a 2 final of 11 to 2. Game Three is
