(( "City of Angels" is a Hollywood remake of Wim Wender's classic "Wings of Desire". In this one, in place of Berlin, two angles Nicolas Cage and Andre Braugher haunt Los Angeles, listening to people's conversation, hanging out in the public library and waiting in hospital rooms to accompany the dead to Heaven.
On an assignment in an operating room, Nicolas Cage's Seth falls in love with Maggie, a young surgeon played by Meg Ryan. After she looses a patient he tries to comfort her and materializes so she can see him. Dennis Frantz, once an angel himself, explains to Seth that he can become human, but it means loosing his immortality to do it. Will he?
City of Angels is an unusual movie. The pace is slow; sometimes very slow, almost a mood piece. There are some interesting visuals, but over all the movie gets a B- for thin characterization and sentimentality.))

THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION HAS JUST APPROVED A CONVENIENT TREATMENT FOR WOMEN IN THE ADVANCED STAGES OF BREAST CANCER.
VT=VO


XELODA IS THE FIRST ORAL CHEMOTHERAPY AVAILABLE FOR PATIENTS WITH
(ZELL-OH-DA) META-STATIC BREAST CANCER.


A CLINICAL STUDY FOUND THAT ONE OUT OF FOUR WOMEN WHO TOOK THE DRUG EXPERIENCED MORE THAN A 50-PERCENT REDUCTION IN TUMOR SIZE.
AND UNLIKE STANDARD THERAPIES, HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY XELODA CAUSED MIMINAL HAIR AND BONE LOSS... BUT PATIENTS DID REPORT SIDE EFFECTS SUCH AS DIARRHEA, VOMITING AND FATIGUE.//
VT=VO


A COMMONLY USED TREATMENT FOR HEART ATTACK VICTIMS MAY HELP THEM LIVE EVEN LONGER... IF IT'S GIVEN TO THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
THAT'S ACCORDING TO A REPORT RELEASED IN THE BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL.
RESEARCHERS SAY HEART ATTACK PATIENTS WHO WERE GIVEN EMERGENCY TREATMENT OF AN ANTI-CLOTTING DRUG AND ORDINARY ASPIRIN.. WENT ON TO LIVE FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER TEN YEARS.
HEART ATTACKS ARE ONE OF THE LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH WORLDWIDE.//
VT=VO


AND IF LIFE'S PRESSURES ARE BRINGING YOU DOWN, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL SAYS ALMOST NINE PERCENT OF ADULTS IN THE U.S. SUFFER SOME FORM OF MENTAL DISTRESS FOR WEEKS AT A TIME.
AMONG THOSE WHO REPORTED THE HIGHEST RATES OF POOR MENTAL HEALTH: YOUNG ADULTS, LOW-INCOME FAMILIES, AND DIVORCED PEOPLE.
THE CDC HOPES THE FINDINGS WILL HELP HEALTH AGENCIES COME UP WITH BETTER WAYS TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM.

AND THAT'S A LOOK AT TODAY'S MEDICAL NEWS.

A new report says houses should be in neat clusters-- away from the Village Centers that would hold stores and community facilities.
Shops would have to meet standards-- no strip malls.
Lakefront homes would feature large windows, decks and boat docks.
Owners would fork over the roughly five thousand dollars to rip rap shorelines, AND pay special taxes for lake services.
Developers say all these rules will drive residents away.

First National Exchange Bank opened four new branches yesterday.
Each will offer no-fee checking accounts.
None will have an A-T-M.

First National was a popular local bank before it was bought out by Dominion and then First Union.
Officers at the NEW F-N-E-B hope to take advantage of the old bank's popularity.
The new First National has two branches in Roanoke, one in Bedford and one in New Castle.
The bank wants to open more branches this summer.
