1. Efforts to reach six Utah coal miners trapped more than 1500 feet underground will take at least three days. That's according to one of the mine's owners who says rescuers aren't sure the men survived the cave-in. There has been no word from them since they became trapped yesterday.

2. Hot, humid air is blanketing much of the nation this week. Officials have declared a heat emergency in parts of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The heat index topped 100 degrees in Tennessee where officials predict the hot weather will continue through Thursday.

3. In court today the two men charged in the Connecticut home invasion that left a mother and her two daughters dead. Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes didn't enter pleas and uttered only a "yes" or a "no" to questions. Prosecutors1 will seek the death penalty if the men are convicted.

4. The famously liberal Dutch are heading towards the right. They are campaigning to ban "magic" mushrooms sold legally as long as they are fresh. The crackdown comes after the death of a 17-year-old French girl who ate the psychedelic fungi2 and jumped from a building.
