WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fewer than 20 truckers showed up in Washington to protest fuel prices, with organizers blaming the expensive cost of travel for the low turnout. Members of Truckers and Citizens United drove their tractor-trailers from FedEx Field in suburban Maryland to Capitol Hill for Tuesday's rally. To express their frustration, the truckers blared their horns and taped signs to their trucks reading: "America is going broke because of oil." Organizers said Monday they expected more than 200 truckers to participate in the rally. Truckers say the hauling industry has been hit hard as drivers pay nearly double than in recent years to fill up their rigs. In turn, they say consumers pay more for the products they deliver. Participants are asking Congress to approve measures to bring down gas prices. Full Story Here

The University of Idaho has ordered that the Cover 2 defense be implemented. Not for the football team, for the cheerleaders. For the second time this season, changes have been ordered for the Vandals' cheerleading squads. The first problem was with having the UI logo sewn onto the seat of the young ladies' pants. Now the squads' two-piece outfits with halter tops have been scrapped. An editorial in the school newspaper, The Argonaut, said: Jaws dropped at the Vandal football game on Sept. 6, and it wasnâ€™t because the football team finally won a game. It was because of the dress of the cheerleaders. There was an uproar about the taste level of the Vandal spirit squadâ€™s uniforms with laced-up details and low cut halter-tops that didnâ€™t seem to provide much support.

GALVESTON, Texas -- Texas authorities busy trying to clean up after Hurricane Ike have a new problem on their hands: There's a tiger loose. A county official said Tuesday that the animal somehow left its enclosure at an exotic pets center in Crystal Beach. Animal experts are coming in to try to catch the tiger. Galveston County Judge Jim Yarbrough put it this way: "Turns out there's a tiger, and I understand he's hungry ... so we're staying away from him." Crystal Beach is on Bolivar Peninsula. The area is one of the hardest-hit by Ike. The news follows reports of a lioness holed up in a Baptist church with its owner on Bolivar Peninsula. The full-grown lion was from a local zoo, and the owner was trying to drive to safety with the animal when he saw cars and trucks stranded in the rising floodwaters. He knew he and the lion were in trouble.
