UNDATED (AP) — The federal government is ending the roundup of cattle on public land in southern Nevada.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A repair job is being planned for the space station. A backup computer for some robotic systems failed Friday. The main computer is fine and the six-man crew is safe, but the malfunction puts next week's supply run in jeopardy. NASA says a spacewalk is needed to replace the bad computer. It will decide tomorrow whether to delay the delivery mission.
