ADOPTION PROTECTION

NEOSHO RIVER BODY

  • A body is found in Oklahoma.  Ottawa County authorities say the body of a 34-year old white male was found floating in the Neosho River Saturday Afternoon.  The body showed no obvious signs of trauma and was turned over to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner.

HASPEL ON THE HILL

  • Gina Haspel remains on track to be the next director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  On Sunday, the Washington post reported that she sought to withdraw from consideration.  The post said Haspel wanted to avoid a confirmation hearing centered on her role in the CIA's "enhanced interrogations" of terror suspects, which critics have likened to torture.  But a source close to the matter told CBS news that her nomination is "going forward."

HAWAII VOLCANO

  • In Hawaii, the eruption of the Kilauea volcano is now in its fifth day.  The lava flow on the big island has already destroyed at least 21 houses.  It's also forced some 17-hundred residents to evacuate their homes.
