Mayor Matt Driscoll raised during the same period. "People realized that I actually do have a shot at Mahoney said amid the clatter of another fundraiser Friday night. "Now that they see that I have an opportunity, they are back- ing it up with contributions." Driscoll, who started raising money for this run in 2002, still has raised a third more than Mahoney. And he has outspent her 2-1. Since 2002, Driscoll has raised and spent leaving in his cam- paign fund as of Friday, the filing deadline. Close to a third of Driscoll's money came from Citizens for a Greater Syracuse, the financial arm of the Onondaga County Demo- cratic Committee. It has a balance of Driscoll said he has already raised all the money he needs. "On my end, all of my resources have come in early, and they continue to still come in he said.

They worried about the things that can happen on the roads of Iraq. But all their concerns boiled down to one solemn vow: Being stuck in traffic was no option. No matter what, they would always keep going. "When you drive, all we can do is look for a hole and plow said U.S. Army staff sergeant Jose L. Nieves, who drove the lead Humvee Friday in a military supply convoy in and around Baghdad. "If the other (Iraqi) drivers don't make a move out of the way, I'll just go through it.

People often first think they're being shot with a real gun.

Instead, he saw a nickel-size spot of yellow. Paint. They had shot him with a paintball. About 20 minutes later, Antoine Baker, 21, was riding his bicycle to a friend's house on Lodi Street, he said, when three men pulled ahead of him in a green car. A shot to the elbow knocked him off his bike, he said. The men stopped their car and climbed out, one wearing black protective goggles. "What you gonna do about the stranger said.

Vice president's role in waging war against Iraq comes to the fore. N.Y. Times News Service Washington Vice Presi- dent Dick Cheney makes three brief appearances in the 22-page federal indictment that charges his chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby Jr., with lying to investigators and misleading a grand jury in the CIA leak case. But in its clear, cold language, the docu- ment lifts a veil on how aggres- sively Cheney's office drove the rationale against Saddam Hus- sein and then fought to discredit the Iraq war's critics. The indictment now raises a central question: How much col- lateral damage has Cheney him- self sustained? Many Republicans say that the vice president, already politi- cally weakened because of his role in preparing the case for war, could be further damaged if he is forced to testify at Libby's trial about the infighting over in- telligence that turned out to be false.

At least 58 people were killed and dozens wounded in the blasts, which the government blamed on terrorists. Police declared a state of emergency and closed all city markets.
