St. Louis school officials to push for statewide bond issue (12/18/02)

LOUIS -- Missouri voters should be asked to authorize a statewide bond issue to raise $2 billion for schools, with half of the proceeds to provide matching grants for technology and building improvements, St. Louis school officials said.

2002 finishing as 19th warmest year (12/18/02)
WASHINGTON -- Drought was a major weather story in the United States this year, and dryness is expected to persist in the Northwest at least through spring. For the record, 2002 is on course to becoming the 19th warmest year in the United States since record keeping began in 1895.

Makers of first pain-free flu vaccine try again for approval (12/18/02)
WASHINGTON -- A long-awaited pain-free flu vaccine -- one squirted up noses instead of injected into arms -- took a tentative step toward the market Tuesday even as government scientists said FluMist is safe enough for only some people to use.

Even NASA unsure how to counter claims of faked moon landings (12/18/02)
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Is that the moon or a studio in the Nevada desert? How can the flag flutter when there's no wind on the moon? Why can't we see stars in the moon-landing pictures?

Nation digest 12/18/02 (12/18/02)
Inflation kept to 0.1 percent rise in November WASHINGTON -- Consumer prices edged up a tiny 0.1 percent in November, the smallest gain since July, as the first decline in energy prices since May helped offset another big jump in medical costs. The small 0.1 percent November in the Labor Department's closely watched Consumer Price Index was even better than had been expected and provided further evidence that the lackluster economic recovery and a rising jobless rate were helping to keep a lid on inflation.. ...

PASADENA, Calif. -- NASA said Tuesday it has completed a long-distance repair of the tape recorder aboard Galileo, allowing the aging spacecraft to transmit to Earth the last scientific data of its seven-year mission at Jupiter.

Claim of biblical bathhouse refuted (12/18/02)
JERUSALEM -- An ancient bathhouse unearthed beneath a Nazareth souvenir shop dates back to Crusader times and is not, as the shop owner believes, a Roman bath which may have been used by Jesus, archaeologists and Bible scholars said Tuesday.

Only this time around, the Cardinals landed their man with a little recruiting help from Cardinals first baseman Tino Martinez, a former Girardi teammate...
Pros find that silly-season money spends just as well (12/18/02)
