DANCING WITH THE STARS RECAP
Kristi Yamaguchi continued to dominate her Dancing With the Stars competition with a dramatic tango that left the judges picking that while her technical merits were high, she needed to be a little less icy and show more emotion in her dancing. Priscilla Presley danced what judge Carrie Ann Inaba called a mesmerizing tango to achieve the second best score of the night. Cristian de la Fuente pulled himself up from the middle of the pack after last week's so-so performance with a jive that judge Bruno Tonioli said was his best dance so far. Shannon Elizabeth and Jason Taylor rounded out the Top Five, while Marlee Matlin amazed the judges once again with her considerable talent despite her deafness. She landed in a sixth-place tie with Mario, last week's top male, and Adam Carolla and Steve Guttenberg, who both showed tremendous improvement. Only a favorable fan vote can help Broadway star Marissa Jaret Winokur, who had the lowest score of the night with all three judges calling her jive "disappointing."

YOU CAN SAVE... A SMALL PART OF ONE TREE
A new study by the PayItGreen Alliance says that if the average American household pays their bills online instead of using paper payments, they will save...
6.6 pounds of paper a year... and stop 171 pounds of greenhouse gas from shooting into the air (which is the same amount of gas a car produces on a 169-mile drive.)
