Sarah Palin's church is getting ready to hold church services for the first time in more than a month. It had major fire damage after it went up in flames Dec. 12. Some parts of the building still aren't perfect, but parishioners aren't going to let that keep them down. Police think they're looking at a case of arson here, but they haven't nailed anyone for doing the damage yet.

And this guycouldn't keep up with Bernie Madoff, but he sure seemed to be trying. Nicholas Cosmo is waiting to be arraigned today. The FBI says he cheated his investors at Agape World Inc.out of $140 million. He turned himself in at a U.S. Postal Inspection Service office in Long Island, NY last night. He says it was no Ponzi scheme, but it won't really matter is he's convicted. That could be 20 years behind bars that he'll never get back.
