Here’s the latest edition of Some Stories You Won't Find on any other Sunday show:
Complaints by environmentalists have forced the Army Corp of Engineers (search) to delay work on a planned 313-acre veterans cemetery in southern Florida. Various groups claim that the burial site for veterans will harm wetlands and the endangered species that live there.

The state auditor of Texas discovered that nearly $600 million in federal anti-terrorism grants were used inappropriately. Instead of buying some high tech gear to foil attacks, local authorities purchased items such as traffic cones, flashlights and other routine equipment.
Poor inventory control was blamed for the foul-up and state officials vow it won't happen again.
