smhb jaan, once again I'm going to give you a few tips on how to post a news item. Please follow them because I always have to clean up everything you post. I would really appreciate your cooperation:

-- Where it says "News Organization" please put the name of the News Organization NOT the web address.

-- In the summary box, please put only a paragraph from the news item NOT the entire article.

Nokaretam... please follow these guidelines and make my life a little easier :o)
