(((( Kenneth Starr wasted little time in ratcheding-up the pressure on the Secret Service... subpoenaeing Special Agent Larry Cockell late Tuesday)to testify before the grand jury looking into the Monica Lewinsky case. He is the head of President Clinton's security detail-- and the man closest to the commander-in-chief.
The Justice Department will undoubtedly fight the subpoena-- as well as others of elite security team members that are expected soon. Officials are already battling Starr's attempts to hear from other Secret Service members-- not on the personal detail.... as well as his request for records that include some of the President's overnight activities, and the events of specific days --during and after Monica Lewinsky's term as a White House intern.
The White House meanwhile tried to pour water on speculation the President would change his security detail-- if his agents are forced to testify.

In fact, on this the 5th day of her testimony, no one is sure just how long it will take the Grand jury to lead the prosecutor's chief witness, Linda Tripp, through her 20 hours of taped conversation with Monica Lewinsky - conversations that allege an affair with the President - which both have denied in court.

(Stand Up Close: ) Up until now, only Monica Lewinsky's and the

President's testimony were considered more compelling than Linda Tripp's - but that could change if Ken Starr get's his way and Secret Service agents are force to take the stand and tell their side of the story - MM CBS News, Washington.))

Coca-Cola has filed a lawsuit against Botetourt County.
The company says it shouldn't have to pay personal property tax for vending machines because they're used for manufacturing.
The County attorney takes issue with the claim, saying the machines sell, they don't manufacture.
