Community leaders apologized Thursday for a cross burning at the nation's only high school for the children of Japanese business executives, and police stepped up patrols to prevent another "sick prank." The crude 6 1/2-foot wooden cross was set ablaze Tuesday night at the stone entrance gate to the Japanese government's Tennessee Meiji Gakuin High School, eight days after it opened with 24 students. No arrests have been made. Sweetwater Police Commissioner Jim Burris and Police Chief Mike Jenkins went to the school to apologize on behalf of the city of 5,310 in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Nissan Motor Co. began shipping the 2007 Altima hybrid, the nation's newest gasoline-electric vehicle, to dealerships this week and said Tuesday that prices would begin at $25,015. That's well below competing mid-size hybrids, such as Toyota Motor Corp.'s Camry and Honda Motor Co.'s Accord. But the sticker price represents a $4,000 increase over Nissan's high-volume Altima S model with a conventional four-cylinder gasoline engine.
