FA receives bid to buy Wembley Stadium
Khan emphasised that the deal was not a foregone conclusion but talked confidently about his plans for the national stadium. The stadium, which is now also used as Tottenham's temporary home, was finished in 2007 at a cost of nearly £800 million.


Fire chief Willie Owens rang a memorial bell in honor of seven lives lost in Hinds County in fires past year. People believe they'll smell smoke when they're sleeping. Brown says they'll be tackling the areas where fires happen the most. Luckily, he was alerted to smoke by a smoke detector that was installed by volunteers with teh Red Cross "Sound The Alarm" campaign.

The group's goal is to install 1,000 alarms in Albuquerque, hitting 20 different locations in a roughly two-week period.

Bed shakers are available for those who are hearing impaired. At the end of the day volunteers will return tools and completed installation forms back to American Red Cross office.
