With the House decision to move on impeachment hearings.. the focus
shifted to money. Your money. Specifically, the
annual government spending measures...some of which, like education
and environmental issues, still haven't' been worked out.
BITE (SEN. TOM DASCHLE/MINORITY LEADER/D-SD.): WHAT DIVIDES US IS
PHILOSOPHY...NOT THE PRESIDENT'S PROBLEMS.
Members of Congress and the White House are still trying to reach
appropriations compromise. Instead, they passed another
temporary spending deal, called a continuing resolution --just to
keep the government running...and the negotiations continuing through
The G-O-P is blaming the White House.
BITE (REP. DICK ARMEY/MAJORITY LEADER/R-TX.): IT IS TIME TO GET
SERIOUS AN COME TO WORK ON THIS...OUR APPROPRIATORS SAT THERE ALL
YESTERDAY AND NO ONE SHOWED UP.
The President spent part of the day with Germany's

possible NATO strikes.

The prospect of a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Kosovo looks grim.
That's according to U-S envoy Richard Holbrooke.
Holbrooke arrived in Kosovo this morning to meet with ethnic Albanian leaders.
He's hoping air strikes won't be necessary to end the violence between Serbs and Albanians.

((WE ARE AT THE WILDWOOD SMOKEHOUSE, STEVE DILL IS GOING TO MAKE SOME POTATO SALAD STEVE THANKS FOR JOINING US TODAY. Thank you for inviting me. YEAH THIS POTATO SALAD IS YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE YOUR BEST OR WHAT OR WHAT'S THE DEAL. Alot of people say it is the best thing we have next to the meat, it is really good it complements the smoked meat very weLL. OKAY AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GET AN IDEA OF HOW TO DO IT THEMSELVES. That is right. LET'S DIVE IN HERE. We are going to do twelve pounds of potatos. What we normally do is steam our potatoes, that is one of the secrets so if you are doing it at home find some way to steam the potatoes. YOU COULD DO IT IN A VEGETABLE STEAMER I GUESS? Vegetable steamer or I use a lobster pot when I am at home , It was big enough to do 12 pounds. SO DO NOT BOIL THEM IT KEEPS THE FLAVOR IN. Yes you can boil them, but it is better to steam them. One of the keys is to use the red bliss potato size B and leave the skins on they are real good. So you steam the potatoes ah 12 pounds of them as a matter of fact. Then you add the dry ingrediants or everything except for the mayonaisse. These are the eggs and we will dump these in and add the scallions which add a little flavor of course. YEAH THAT IS NOT IN EVERY POTATO SALAD RECIPE. And then we have celery seed I experimented with salt and the seed did the best job and we also add salt to it. YOU MENTIONED THAT WHEN YOU OPENED UP THE SMOKEHOUSE HERE YOU WENT THROUGH A PERIOD WHEN YOU TRIED OUT A BUNCH OF RECIPES AT HOME. Yes. HOW MUCH EXPERIMENTING FOR THE SMOKEHOUSE RECIPE OR WAS THIS AN EASY ONE. To get it right we did a lot of experimenting. I don't know we worked on different recipes FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS before we opened up. And so you mix all the dry ingrediants real good first. It is too eaarly in the morning it is making me hungry. ADD THE MAYONAISSE ADD AHLF OF IT THEN MIX IT UP THEN YOU ADD THE OTHER HALF THAT WAY IT DOES NOT CLUMP A WHOLE LOT. NOW STEVE IS NOT JUST SHOWING US HOW TO MAKE GREAT POTATO SALAD IT IS A PRETTY GOOD WORKOUT HERE. It builds up the biceps in the forearms. SO IT IS A GOOD STRENGTH BUILDING EXCERCISE. You might want to start with just a little bit in the beginning. A LITTLE BIT FOR HOME USE AND THEN BUILD UP UP TO TWELVE POUNDS. So would you like to try it? YEAH. OKAY NOW WHILE EAT IF PEOPLE WANT TO COME OUT TO THE WILDWOOD SMOKEHOUSE HOW IN THE WORLD WILL THEY FIND YOU? Well it is on 419 Oak Grove plaza and we do have other things other than potato salad. THAT IS GOOD. THE MAIN THING IS MEAT . Yeah we do smoked barbeque. We smoke all of the meat here. The smokers are back there. THIS IS REALLY GOOD. It is the perfect compliment to our meat. YEAH THE POTATOES ARE NICE AND SOFT. The steaming does it. STEVE EVEN THOUGH YOUR HANDS ARE MESSY I WILL SHAKE THEM AND WIPE THEM ON MY APRON. AND THANKS FOR JOINING US ON WEEKEND DINER. THANKS. ))

Contractors cleared about 14 miles of shoreline along the upper Roanoke arm of the lake -- for a total cost of 82-thousand-dollars.
The three surrounding counties -- Bedford, Pittsylvania, and Franklin -- donated most of the money.
Project leaders say if they receive similar funding next year -- they can tackle other parts of the lake too.
A lack of rain this past summer could mean a lack of food for the needy this winter.
