The FBI hopes you can help them solve the suspicious death from a dozen years ago. The images top our look across the country. Two notes were found in the pocket of 41-year-old Ricky McCormack. His body was discovered in a Missouri corn field in 1999 and the notes are the few clues investigators1 have to go on, but the encrypted text has been mystified. Click on the FBI website if you have any insight into the case and we'll be talking more about this with the host of the History Channel's "Decoded2" in the next hour.

Los Altos, California, now lays claim to the highest known price for a single family home in the United States. "The Walt Street Journal" reports a Russian billionair actually paid $100 million for this french-styled chateau3.

In Atlantic City, New Jersey4, former cocktail5 servers at the resort casino say they're contemplating6 a discrimination lawsuit7 after they were allegedly fired for how they appeared in the casino's new uniforms. Casino management says all servers let go were given a hiring preference for other positions. That really what this story means is the casinos are trying to force them to dress in that sexy way and many of them were too old to dress that sexy way and they were got rid of.

Police in Sacramento, California are on the lookout8 for this 18 wheeler, which is hiding in plain sight. The big rig is a moble marijuana-growing facility. The owner says it's designed to be used only by professionals growing medicinal marijuana. Critics questioned the trucks legality.

Some of us recall the images of our high school principal walking the halls eyeballing students with a wooden paddle in his hand. I know, I remember those days. Looking at recent stats nearly a quatrer million kids got corporal punishment in the 2005 school year. That may suprise you, but that's actually down from years earlier.

Twenty states still permit paddling. Most of those are in the south. Top states in 2005: Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama. Steve Perry is our education pro9. Welcome, Steve.

Welcome to the principal's office, Carol.

Exactly. You know when I ran for like student body president and I ran to ban paddling from my high school. I mean, that's how long this thing has been around and I ...

It's absurd. It's actually one of the biggest problems in public education is nostalgia10. We often think that things were so much better back in the day and so something even as silly as hitting a child with a piece of wood is still considered something that we may want to do in school.

We had a parent hit a child with a piece of wood last week. We called the police on her. You can't hit children with objects. We understand, I understand the need to be creative with discipline. But in order to be creative with discipline, you need to have a relationship with the child. You can't just go around, saying that they're wrong and they're bad. That's what happens. We are not the parents.

No but Steve. The only creative thing out there seems to be let's take a time out. Go sitting in the corner and take a time out. Does that kind of thing work?

No.no. We don't need to do that way. I don't, we do discipline differently here at Captial Prep. One of the thing that we do is we, children, where they in this office. They wouldn't sit, they stand because this is not a place for them to be comfortable. They are not guests. It begins with something as simple as that. There are other ways in which we can be creative with discipline. You can have the child clean windows at a school. You can have a child, I mean if you want to, they can do stairs or something like that. Anything that something physical and not comfortable without necessarily hurt them. Of course, the parents and everyone else has to buy into it. But ultimately, what's most important is not how you discipline them is how you build a relationship with them. Once you have built a relationship with them, you can establish expectations and they will respond to those expectations. The reason why successful schools are successfuul is because they built relationship with the children. People think that there is a shortcut11. There is no shortcut. Paddling a child simply will no improve the student's academic performance. There is nothing anywhere in academic annals that will say if you hit a child with a piece of wood, they will do better in math.

I don't think you're gonna convince some people. Steve Perry, many thanks. We appreciate it.

Take it easy, Carol.
