Immigration
According to officials, the hotly debated immigration bill is dead. A bill which would legalize millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. failed Thursday evening when Senators decided to kill the bill. The bill which had bipartisan support and the endorsement of the President was blocked by Senate Republicans. The controversial bill which is being called the Grand Bargain by some has exposed problems in both parties.

Space Shuttle
The space shuttle Atlantis is green to go later this evening. The space shuttle will be visiting the International Space Center, delivering supplies and dropping off an American engineer to work on the space station. NASA has the shuttle back on the launch pad after a February hailstorm kept the shuttle from launching three months ago.

Presidential Candidates
Presidential Hopefuls Tommy Thompson and Rudy Giuliani are scheduled to appear in St. Louis today. The candidates are in the Show-Me State because Missouri is traditionally a toss-up state in presidential politics and likely to become a battleground state as the election draws near. Missouri is likely to see Republican and Democratic candidates as the race for 08 heats up.

Local Movie
Are you looking for a little family fun this evening? Look no further than the Daniel Boone Regional Library. The library will be showing Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit this evening, starting at 7:00. The movie is rated G so bring your pillows and blankets and get excited as Wallace and his trusty sidekick Gromit get into and out of trouble.
