Good morning from the CNN Center here in Atlanta, I’m Melissa Long with a look at some of the stories that are happening NOW IN THE NEWS on this Wednesday, August 26th.

 

Senator Ted1 Kennedy has died at the age of 77 in Hyannis Port Massachusetts. He had been fighting a malignant2 brain tumor3, diagnosis4 that was announced in May of 2008. President Obama says Kennedy's death marks the passing of an extraordinary leader, adding that he helped mold an America that is more just. Kennedy served as a US senator for nearly 47 years.

Another town hall meeting on health care turned into chaos5 last night. Opponents of the President's reform plan spent hours shouting down Virginia Democratic congressman6 Jim Moran and former DNC Chairman Howard Dean. "Howard Dean is a baby killer7, Howard Dean is a baby killer, abortion8 is murder; and Howard Dean is a baby killer". Critics promising9 to disrupt the event, the Democratic National Committee provided signs for supporters. Moran spent much of his time dealing10 with rumors11 about the plan.

The Post Office is offering 450 million dollars for its employees to quit early. The buyout deal's up to 30,000 employees who agreed to resign or retire this year. Now the Postal12 Service says letter carriers are not eligible13 because mail service is actually growing.

A teen accused of bringing pipe bombs, a chainsaw and a sword to his high school, is expected to be charged today. Police believed that the 17-year-old planned Monday's attack for months. The California police think that he was targeting faculty14 who he believed had wronged him. 2 bombs went off but there was no serious damage and no injuries.

A retiree is waking up, nearly 260 million dollars richer this morning. The former South Carolina State employee turned in his winning ticket from last week's Powerball yesterday. He says the money is not gonna change him and he wouldn't share his plans for what he plans to do with the new money or whether he'll be collecting it in payments or lump sum payout of 88 million dollars after taxes.

 

Those are the headlines for you this hour. Do stay with CNN and CNN.COM for more on these stories or other news that develops today.
