Steve "Summer Olympics" Suter
A three-hour stadium spectacular is about to get under way in London, marking the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics.
The parade of nations is expected to feature most of the roughly 10,500 athletes taking part in the games. The Olympic cauldron will be lit with a flame that was kindled in May at the birthplace of the ancient Olympics in Greece -- but, as always, the identity of the final torch-carrier is a closely-guarded secret. Speculation focuses on Roger Bannister, the first man to run a four-minute mile, in 1954.
One of Britain's most successful contemporary movie directors, Oscar winner Danny Boyle, is presiding over the ceremony. It's supposed to highlight the U.K.'s history and impact on the world.
There will be live animals to portray a vision of a green and pleasant land. There will also be darker, grittier segments that dwell on the industrial might upon which Britain built a global empire and shaped world history.
One segment features actor Daniel Craig as James Bond. Former Beatle Paul McCartney will lead a sing-along.
The $42 million show, with 15,000 volunteers, is expected to be viewed by a global TV audience of a billion people.

Finally ...Walgreens fills Blue Cross Prescriptions
Pharmacy chain Walgreens says it will begin filling prescriptions from customers in the Express Scripts network starting in September under a new multiyear contract between the companies.

Walgreen had stopped filling prescriptions for Express Scripts after a contract between the companies ended last year.

Shares of Walgreen Co. jumped 14 percent in premarket trading while Express Scripts shares rose 3 percent.

Express Scripts Holding Co. said it ended the contract with Walgreen because the drugstore operator wanted a premium compared to what Express Scripts paid other pharmacies.

Walgreen Co. has seen sales slump for several months due to the split, but had said it would rather give up the revenue than continue filling unprofitable prescriptions.

The companies said in a statement Thursday that Walgreen will rejoin a network of pharmacies available to Express Scripts customers starting Sept. 15. Terms of the new contract were not disclosed

Steven Tyler quits American Idol
Steven Tyler says he is not coming back for idol. He says he leaving "American Idol'' to put rock `n' roll first. He said he's leaving the show after two seasons to rededicate himself to Aerosmith, the band he sings for. The rock star said he loved every minute on the hit Fox singing contest but added, ``it's time to bring rock back.''
Stevens Tyler's departure leaves original judge Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, but the singer-actress' future with the show is cloudy. Now jennifer Lopez said she was saddened to hear that he was leaving. She said that his departure definitely will play a role in her decision to stay and she is unsure if she is coming back either...unless they give her more money right?

Thanks Metairie for saving the planet

Thanks for filling those green bins. Officials say about half of the households in unincorporated East Jefferson participated in the first week of curbside garbage recycling, a significant increase for a service they last had before Hurricane Katrina. Director Marnie Winter of the Department of Environmental Affairs said overall rate of households putting out the new green bins Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was 51 percent. Before Katrina, Winter says an average of about 32 percent of homes participated in curbside recycling. Officials say more than 126 tons of recyclables were collected last week. Do you recycle?

Great way to pay off your last House note
A Massachusetts man who pledged to make the last mortgage payment on his home with pennies has fulfilled that promise.
After warning his bank, Thomas Daigle dropped off about 62,000 pennies weighing 800 pounds in two boxes for the final payment on the Milford home he and his wife, Sandra, bought in 1977.
He tells The Milford Daily News (http://bit.ly/NseYqK ) he just wanted to make his last payment on April 24 ``memorable.''
He started saving his pennies when he moved in.
The optician says his wife laughed whenever he would pick up a penny he found on the ground and say it was going to the mortgage.
Daigle says he's just glad to have the coins out of his house.
