President Clinton left the White House today and went back to Martha's Vineyard.
That's where his family is on vacation.
Meanwhile, the world is reacting to the military strikes he ordered yesterday.
Americans overwhelmingly approve of the president's decision to bomb terrorist bases in Africa.
Only one in three thinks the strikes were politically motivated.
In Russia, there was a surprisingly harsh reaction.
President Boris Yeltsin condemned the attacks.
And most of the Arab world is vowing revenge.
The man whose terror camps were targeted in the attacks, Osama bin Laden, warned the U-S should get ready for war.

Wall Street had its own reaction today.

Currency crises in Latin America...
The recession in Asia.
AND the U-S military strikes.

Attorney General Janet Reno may be getting closer to appointing another special prosecutor.
This one would investigate Vice President Al Gore and his possibly illegal fundraising activities.
Reno has a memo that talks about Gore's role as a fundraiser.
It says that 35 percent of the money Gore raised by making phone calls would go to the Clinton/Gore reelection effort.
That in itself is legal.
The problem is, Gore made the phone calls from his office.
And soliciting contributions from a government office is NOT legal.

Next week kicks off the 1998 regular season for high school football and that means that two of the area's traditional powers are hosting their jamborees tonight.

Down in Pulaski fans were trying to stay cool as they took in the action in the early games.
Cave Spring battled Magna Vista in the opener. The young Knights were hot. Just before the end of the first half, Mike Hamlar takes the handoff and goes around the end for a 33 yard touchdown.
Warriors coach Don Bateman then tried to pump up his team. But the Knights kept rolling as Brandon Funk hooks up with Mike Bramer on the deep pass to the one to set up another score.
The jamboree serves as the perfect vehicle to get some much needed game experience.

Gliding your sailboat along to the tune of the wind and waves can be a cinch if nature cooperates.

But now you don't need the wind or even the waves. It's called the jetboard - basically a surfboard with an engine. Top speed is about 40 miles an hour and you don't have to wait for that big wave. The jetboard can speed on lakes, streams, or the ocean. It's been on and off the drawing board for 18 years, but the company that designed it is ready to sell it sometime next year.
