been sighted, again.

Rudolph's game of cat and mouse started in january after his gray
pickup was spotted fleeing the scene of a fatal bombing at a women's
clinic in Birmingham Alabama.
That truck was found days later, abandoned in a field, a short
distance from Rudolph's last known residence.
It became the first of many clues - enough to link him with at
least three other bombings, including the Olympic park blast in 1996.
But not enough to track him down, despite more than a dozen
sightings - all in the dense woods of western North Carolina.
We do believe that Eric Rudolph - still in this area.

Some artists can spend fortunes buying materials for their work.
But one artist in Indiana doesn't look to an art store for supplies-- instead he goes to the grocery store.
Toilet paper and water are the tools Jack Smith needs to make his creations come alive.
He discovered his talent during a stay in jail eight years ago and has been sculpting ever since.
He begins by tearing the paper into sections. Then he adds water as he fashions the paper into the animal he wants. He stains it, waxes it, and paints it with polyurethane.
Jack says he was amazed the process worked when he first tried it, but it does make sense.
[IN Q=IT TURNS BACK]
((JACK SMITH/ARTIST: IT TURNS BACK INTO SOLID WOOD, SEE THIS IS WOOD. ONE-HUNDRED PERCENT WOOD. THAT'S WHAT IT IS.))

The artist has sold hundreds of his creations which include everything from small birds to large reptiles and even unicorns.
The prices of the sculptures begin at thirty-five dollars.
