    CONCORD – Democratic Senate candidate Jeanne Shaheen's once imposing lead over U.S. Sen. John E. Sununu has all but vanished in recent months according to a University of New Hampshire Survey Center poll released today. Shaheen leads Sununu in this poll of likely voters, 46 percent to 42 percent, but the spread is within its margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percent. Pollster Andrew Smith stressed the race remains wide open since only 22 percent said they had definitely decided upon a candidate. During a telephone interview, Smith said voters are starting to focus more on the choices...

    In Israel, a resurgence in the number of Jews who believe in Jesus is getting a lot of attention. Many leaders say it's the strongest growth since the time of Jesus and that the Messianic movement could be on the brink of a great revival. "This is the first time where we've seen Israeli society in general being so open to consider who Yeshua is," said Messianic leader Asher Intrater. "This is a real miracle, and there's beginning to be grace and favor with us in the land." Although Jesus and the early disciples were Jewish, for nearly 2,000 years...

    Indianapolis - A great grandmother believes a higher power helped her and three family members survive a Monday night shooting. Before stray bullets from a gun battle at Sherman Drive and 38th Street ripped through her car, Charlotte Thompson didn't even know what gunfire sounded like. "I'd never heard a gunshot," she said. She was sitting at a red light around 7:00 pm Monday when the fight broke out. "We heard this pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, pow," Thompson said. "Then Shyann said 'Oh! I'm shot!'" Her 10-year-old great granddaughter was sitting in the back seat, shot in the stomach....

    I have been to the outpouring in Lakeland twice with my family. I was wondering if any other Freepers have been as well. We went when it was still in Ignited Church which holds 700. It has moved to a church in Auburndale that holds 3,000, they then moved it to the Lakeland Convention Center that holds 9,000 and then to Lakeland Tigers Baseball stadium that holds nearly 12,000. Tonight it will be at Lakeland/Linder Airport, Sun and Fun Grounds. We have seen lots of healings and miracles. It has been going on for over 35 days and will be...

    "God put me there, not to watch, but to help." That is how Tim Scott of Bristol, Virginia explains his presence at the fiery crash on the southbound lanes of Interstate 81 near exit 69 Tuesday, April 9th. Scott, who stopped to help after seeing a tractor trailer, driven by Larry Harvey of Princeton, West Virginia, dragging a 1987 Oldsmobile down the interstate, just happened to have a fire extinguisher in his vehicle. Another passerby who also stopped to help, Jeff Kegley of Seymour, Tennessee, said the fire extinguisher was the key piece of equipment that helped save two women,...

    SNOWMASS VILLAGE, Colo., April 2, 2008 – Less than six months ago, Army Pfc. Michael Dinkel had his leg destroyed by a roadside bomb while he was deployed to Afghanistan with the Fort Riley, Kan.-based 70th Engineer Battalion. Today, still a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Dinkel is shimmying down the slopes of Snowmass Mountain, refusing to let a disability stand in the way of a good time -- or a full, productive life. Less than six months after losing a leg to an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan, Army Pfc. Michael Dinkel is on the slopes...

    From Rasmussen Reports on February 9: "… polling since Mitt Romney suspended his campaign shows John McCain leading Mike Huckabee 55% to 24% in the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination. McCain also leads Huckabee 724 to 196 in delegates and there is no viable path to the nomination for Huckabee. As a result, Rasmussen Reports will no longer conduct daily tracking polls of the race for the Republican Presidential nomination." From Rasmussen Reports on February 10: "In the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination, Mike Huckabee had a good day on Saturday. He won the caucuses in Kansas handily,...

    Not so fast, John McCain. Republican White House long shot Mike Huckabee cast himself as the New York Giants of political candidates, a scrappy David hustling to knock off Goliath. Huckabee won the Kansas caucuses and beat McCain, the presumptive nominee, in Louisiana Saturday night - though there will be a runoff because neither crested 50%. Huckabee insisted yesterday he's in the race for the duration, or until McCain wraps up the 1,191 delegates needed for the nomination - even though the Arizona senator now leads 714 to 214. "I didn't major in math," the former Arkansas governor told a...

    There's new hope for the five million people in the United States who live with heart failure. Scientists say they have been able to grow a rat heart in a lab. They were also successful at getting it to start beating. About 50,000 people die each year waiting for a heart donor. But that all may change thanks to a rat heart, built by scientists at the University of Minnesota. "Everyone has cells," Dr. Doris Taylor told CBN News. "What's lacking is a way to put that together in a 3-D structure that lets you create an organ," she explained....

    As we watch the news and read the papers, we realize there are many misconceptions about Christmas and about miracles. Christmas is not a season of tolerance. It is a season of love. Christmas is not a season of worry. It is a season for worship. Christmas is not a season of praising friends and family members. It is a season for glorifying God. Christmas is not a season of decorations and presents under the tree. It is a season for acknowledging the presence of God in our lives. To be honest, Christmas is not even a season of giving....

    MOSCOW, September 24 (RIA Novosti) - A 15-year-old boy from the Urals suffered acute frostbite after riding the wing of a Boeing-737 plane on a two-hour flight from Perm to Moscow, Russian radio station Mayak reported on Monday. After clinging on for the entire 1300-kilometer (808-mile) flight to Vnukova Airport, the boy, named Andrei, collapsed onto the tarmac. His arms and legs were so severely frozen that rescuers were at first unable to remove his coat and shoes, the radio station said. The airport did not confirm the report. "We have no information on this," the Vnukovo press service told...
