Have you visited the Wisconsin Dells?

Probably not lately.

Flash floods hit southwest Wisconsin. An embankment along a man-made lake gave way, unleashing a powerful current that ripped homes off their foundations.


I'm not sure there is a huge market for this anymore but, Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones offer Clinton details on a new Website.

They are offering Internet viewers the lurid details of encounters they claim they had with former President Clinton while he was Governor of Arkansas. You can hear about it for $1.99 a pop.


Paula Jones and Gennifer Flowers gained notoriety in the early 1990s after claiming to have had sexual encounters with Clinton when he was governor of Arkansas .

"It's a way we can get our story out there in our own words, without someone making their own interpretations or corrections," Jones said.

Flowers also has advice for Senator Hillary Clinton -- and why she thinks she didn't nab the Democratic presidential nomination. She tells "Extra T-V" that she thinks Bill Clinton has been a hindrance to her, adding, "My advice to Hillary would be to divorce that chump."

During the 1992 presidential race, Flowers claimed to have had a 12-year affair with then-candidate and Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton. Clinton initially denied the allegation, but later, during his deposition in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case, acknowledged a single sexual encounter with Flowers.

Jones accused Clinton of sexual harassment, saying he made an unwelcome sexual advance in 1991 in a Little Rock hotel room while he was Arkansas governor and she was a state employee. Her lawsuit set in motion the events that led to the impeachment of Clinton.

Don't Eat the Tomatoes!

McDonald's, Wal-Mart ,Burger King, Outback Steakhouse and Taco Belland other U.S. chains have halted sales of some raw tomatoes as federal health officials work to trace the source of a multistate salmonella food poisoning outbreak.

Sharp as a whip at 115.

Gert Holstege, a neuroscientist at the University Medical Center Groningen, in The Netherlands, says that a Dutch woman who reached 115 years of age and remained mentally sharp throughout life also had a healthy brain when she died. The results will be detailed in the August issue of the journal Neurobiology of Aging.

"Our observations suggest that, in contrast to general belief, the limits of human cognitive function may extend far beyond the range that is currently enjoyed by most individuals," said lead researcher

"She was very enthusiastic about her being important for science," Holstege and his colleagues write in the journal article.

Neurological and psychological examinations were performed when the centenarian was 112 and 113 years old. The results were essentially normal, with no signs of dementia or problems with memory or attention. Her mental performance was above average for adults aged 60 to 75.

Currently, there are more than 80,000 Americans 100 years of age or older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That number is expected to rise to more than 580,000 centenarians by 2040.

A recent study of a man who lived to age 114 found a combination of genes and lifestyle play a role in longevity, though the long-life recipe is far from clear.
