NATO IS CALLING TODAY'S AGREEMENT BY G-8 LEADERS A DIPLOMATIC BREAKTHROUGH. AND AT THE WHITE HOUSE PRESIDENT CLINTON APPLAUDED LEADERS WHO NEGOTIATED THE DEAL FOR ROUGHLY 12 HOURS.

that will help us realize these basic goals: peace with security for the people of Kosovo and the stabuility for the region as a whole.")
THE DRAFT RESOLUTION CALLS FOR ALL SERB FORCES TO LEAVE KOSOVO. ALTHOUGH SERBIA'S PARLIAMENT HAS ALREADY AGREED TO A WITHDRAWAL AS PART OF A PEACE PLAN, A TIMETABLE FOR THAT WITHDRAWAL IS STILL IN QUESTION. UNTIL THAT'S RESOLVED, NATO PROMISES TO CONTINUE BOMBING MILTARY TARGETS. ALLIED LEADERS ARE URGING YUGOSLAV PRESIDENT MILOSEVIC TO SEND HIS COMMANDERS BACK TO THE TABLE.

(SOT, MADELEINE ALBRIGHT, SEC. OF STATE, "Belgrade should stop shilly

shallying around. For those of you who need a translation, that means stalling.")

THERE WAS NEW SHELLING OVERNIGHT OUTSIDE BELGRADE, DRAWING CRITICISM FROM RUSSIA. But today's agreement by G-8 leaders is significant because Russia is on board. It authorizes an international peacekeeping force for Kosovo that will inclue Russian troops. It's one that will help ethnic Albanian refugees return home.

They say nobody can write Hollywood power and glamour like Jackie Collins.
And with 200 MILLION copies of her books sold in more than 40 countries she is one of the world's top selling authors.
She joins us this afternoon to talk about latest Novel, Dangerous Kiss.
Good Afternoon-
This book features one of your most popular characters, tell us about that.
[SUPER=01-Jackie Collins/Author;]


And what I liked about the book, is that even if you've never picked up a Jackie Collins novel you won't be lost about characters or shorelines, you give plenty of background information.

How much of these characters are based on real life celebrities? First instance there is a very minor character in your book Flick who sounds a lot like a certain famous rock and roller.

Are there sometimes some real life Hollywood stories that think I could never put in my books, no one would believe it?[tease3] [SPORTS MUSIC UNDER]

Reggie Miller concentrates before the game--but didn't have much to do with the outcome.
With the Knicks down 16 ot 12 in the first, Chris Childs spins to steal the ball, feeding it up-court to Marcus Camby, who cuts the lead to two with a thunderous dunk--
But that was as good as it got for New York-- Chris Mullin scored 18 for the Pacers, but the big star was previous non-factor Jalen Rose--
Rose had 19 points off the bench--including this hard-fought lay-up in the fourth as Indiana pulled away--winning the game 90 to 78.

Reportedly, Bill France Jr. -- the head of International Speedway Corporation -- met with track officials at the Richmond International Raceway last month to discuss the sale of the track.
If it goes through, it would give ISC 13 of the 21 tracks used in NASCAR.
However, Wayne Sawyer -- the vice president of the Richmond track -- is denying that any talks have taken place. Sawyer says that his family plans to keep the track.

However, track owner Paul Sawyer is in his 80's and such a sale would make sense. Plus, only Indy, Richmond, Pocono and Martinsville are privately owned--AND the France family owns half of Martinsville.
