(nats hostages off plane)


It's a home-coming 5 and a half years
in the making.



Late last night - Marc Gonsalves,
Thomas Howes, and Keith Stansell -
exhausted


but very much alive - took their
first steps on U-S soil since
2003....just


hours after a daring rescue in the
Colombian jungle.



The three civilian defense contractors
had been held hostage by the FARC


anti-government rebels since their drug
surveillance plane was shot down....In


the years past seen only in so-called
"proof of life" videos.



(NATSOT don't font HOWES): "HI MARIANA


- I'M SENDING YOU THIS NOTE ON THE 22ND


OF OCTOBER 2007."



U-S intelligence helped locate the
hostages. Then - using unmarked


helicopters seen in this cell phone
video - the Colombian military went in


and tricked the rebels into handing
over the Americans, plus a dozen other


captives, including well-known
Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt.
Not a


single shot was fired.



(SOT GEORGE GONSALVES/HOSTAGE'S FATHER


212945): "THE LAST 6, 7 MONTHS HAVE


BEEN THE HARDEST."



For the families, the long ordeal is
finally over. They've fought for years


to hold out hope...Some have even
complained the U-S government wasn't
doing


enough to help.



Now - their only hope is that their
loved ones make in home in time for the


hioliday.



(SOT GEORGE GONSALVES/HOSTAGE'S FATHER


212832): "IT'S A WONDERFUL TO CELEBRATE


THE 4TH OF JULY...THAT, YOU KNOW, HE'S
COMING HOME...AND IT'S THE FOURTH OF


JULY - MY GOD, WHAT A PARTY WE'RE GONNA
HAVE."



(oncam)


TBD -


possibly: The three men spent the night
at a Army medical hospital in San


Antonio, going through some medical
tests. No word yet on when they'll -


finally - return home.

WALL STREET IS HOPING FOR A LIFT FROM
THE UNEMPLOYMENT REPORT DUE LATER THIS
MORNING.



ANALYSTS ARE EXPECTING THE JOBLESS RATE
TO SHOW A SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT IN JUNE,
DROPPING TO ABOUT 5-POINT-4 PERCENT.
THAT'S IMPORTANT NEWS TO THE MARKETS
BECAUSE WITH MORE PEOPLE WORKING,
CONSUMER SPENDING GOES UP.



OIL PRICES SPIKED TO A NEW HIGH, NEAR
144-DOLLARS A BARREL..AND THAT HELPED
FUEL A SELL-OFF IN THE MARKETS.



THE DOW LOST 166 POINTS. AND THE NASDAQ
DROPPED 53. THE MARKETS ARE NOW MORE
THAN 20 PERCENT OFF THEIR HIGHS...WHAT


WALL STREET CALLS OFFICIAL BEAR
TERRITORY.



GENERAL MOTORS WAS LEADING THE WAY DOWN
AND WILL BE LOOKING TO REGAIN GROUND
WHEN THE BELL RINGS. SHARES DROPPED
ABOUT 15-PERCENT AFTER A WALL STREET
ANALYST SAID THE NUMBER ONE AUTOMAKER
WILL NEED TO RAISE AS MUCH AS
15-BILLION DOLLARS TO COVER
LOSSES...AND THAT BANKRUPTCY IS A
POSSIBILITY.



A VICTIM OF HIGH FUEL PRICES...AMERICAN
AIRLINES ANNOUNCED MORE JOB CUTS. THE
CARRIER SAYS IT COULD SLASH AS MANY AS
900 FLIGHT ATTENDANTS AS IT PARES DOWN
ITS FLIGHT SCHEDULE.



AND INSTEAD OF CUTTING JOBS, AIR TRAN
IS CUTTING PAYROLL. THE AIRLINE IS
LOOKING TO REDUCE EMPLOYEES' PAYCHECKS
BY ABOUT 10 PERCENT TO OFFSET FUEL
PRICES.



THAT'S YOUR MONEYWATCH... LOG ONTO CBS

(nats hostages off plane)


It's a home-coming 5 and a half years
in the making.



Late last night - Marc Gonsalves,
Thomas Howes, and Keith Stansell -
exhausted


but very much alive - took their
first steps on U-S soil since
2003....just


hours after a daring rescue in the
Colombian jungle.



The three civilian defense contractors
had been held hostage by the FARC


anti-government rebels since their drug
surveillance plane was shot down....In


the years past seen only in so-called
"proof of life" videos.



(NATSOT don't font HOWES): "HI MARIANA


- I'M SENDING YOU THIS NOTE ON THE 22ND


OF OCTOBER 2007."



U-S intelligence helped locate the
hostages. Then - using unmarked


helicopters seen in this cell phone
video - the Colombian military went in


and tricked the rebels into handing
over the Americans, plus a dozen other


captives, including well-known
Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt.
Not a


single shot was fired.



(SOT GEORGE GONSALVES/HOSTAGE'S FATHER


212945): "THE LAST 6, 7 MONTHS HAVE


BEEN THE HARDEST."



For the families, the long ordeal is
finally over. They've fought for years


to hold out hope...Some have even
complained the U-S government wasn't
doing


enough to help.



Now - their only hope is that their
loved ones make in home in time for the


hioliday.



(SOT GEORGE GONSALVES/HOSTAGE'S FATHER


212832): "IT'S A WONDERFUL TO CELEBRATE


THE 4TH OF JULY...THAT, YOU KNOW, HE'S
COMING HOME...AND IT'S THE FOURTH OF


JULY - MY GOD, WHAT A PARTY WE'RE GONNA
HAVE."



(oncam)


TBD -


possibly: The three men spent the night
at a Army medical hospital in San


Antonio, going through some medical
tests. No word yet on when they'll -


finally - return home.

That's one of many questions on
Lynchburg's citizen survey.


Residents are being asked if they
would pay a small fee for the city to
collect recyclable items on trash day.


There are also questions about
the city's dialogue on race and racism


- and whether the city should have a
clean energy policy.


A random sample of 12-hundred
people have been invited to fill out
the questionnaire.

Favre has communicated his
potential desire to return to the
Packers to coach Mike McCarthy - but
talks have not advanced to a serious
stage according to the team.


Favre was reached yesterday by
Mississippi's Sun Herald newspaper and
tried downplay the talk saying it's all
rumor.


However, his teammates and family
members all indicate he has the itch to
keep playing.


Now let's check the scoreboards.
