A surprise move by a Sydney magistrate today, returning two dogs to their owner after she pleaded guilty to mistreating them. The former dog-show judge kept the animals in squalor. And a warning - some people may find these pictures distressing.

Carol McGuiver is to blame for this terrible cruelty. The one-time dog breeder and show judge has pleaded guilty to mistreating her 18 border terriers and 10 Irish wolfhounds. Her excuse - severe depression. Strangely, her doctor says keeping more dogs would aid her recovery. In total, she faced 39 charges of animal cruelty. each carried a maximum of six months jail and/or a fine of up to $5,500. She has already paid $37,000 to cover vet bills and legal expenses. Today, the RSPCA and the magistrate described her mistreatment

She was also given a 3-year good behaviour bond. Her work at Royal North Shore Hospital as a senior scientist is under review.

The 59-year-old sold her home to pay the legal bills and for the medical care for her animals. She says she has suffered gross humiliation and now isolation from the dog world for what she did. Schapelle Corby's family is tonight furious with Australia's top cop. They've asked Federal Commissioner Mick Keelty to stop making comments which they believe could hurt her case.

Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty refuses to discuss Schapelle Corby as he leaves his Bali hotel because his decision

to call her defence of being an unwitting drug mule "weak and flimsy" is attracting too much heat. He's weak and flimsy. I don't know. It's just wrong. He shouldn't be making any comments like that. Not a person in his position. Older sister Mercedes Corby says new evidence corrupt baggage handlers were allegedly helping a drug syndicate smuggle cocaine

on the same day the 27-year-old was arrested mustn't be discredited by Australia's top policeman. We've a lot of allegations that the AFP had refused to test drugs, the AFP had refused to fingerprint the bag, the AFP had refused to take phone calls from the defence team, the AFP had refused to take information from Mr Ford's wife. None of that information was true.

A spokeswoman for Mr Keelty says he doesn't want to keep getting dragged into the Schapelle Corby case. He's in Bali to attend an ASEAN-opol conference on transnational crime,

not, she says, to talk about the Schapelle Corby case. The Australian Government has written to the Bali court,

detailing new information involving baggage handlers but the 27-year-old's supporters say it makes no reference to Schapelle Corby at all. I'm quite angry because there's nothing in there to even say that they're writing about Schapelle's case. The chief judge considering if the Queenslander should be locked up for life says it's too late to affect his decision in any way but does plan to read the letter.

Prosecutors have accused the Federal Government of trying to influence the verdict. The Government will provide any information or support that it appropriately and properly should provide

to assist in the presentation of Schapelle Corby's defence. In Bali, Martine Griffiths, Ten News. Taxpayers may have to fork out millions for the Federal Government's wrongful deportation of an Australian woman to the Philippines. Lawyers are on the way to see Vivien Alvarez and possibly launch legal proceedings. The case of Vivian Alvarez could become more than just an embarrassing mistake for the Federal Government.

As protesters demand a royal commission, a team of lawyers is preparing an unprecedented compensation claim, possibly in excess of $2 million. Harry Freedman is on his way to the Philippines to build a case for the Alvarez family. He says the illegal deportation of an Australian citizen is uncharted legal territory and could be viewed as the worst type of racial discrimination. I don't have all the facts but I can only assume it's based on her physical appearance. The PM admits something has gone badly wrong, but wants the current private investigation, headed by former Federal Police commissioner Mick Palmer, to run its course. We have an inquiry and when the results of the Palmer inquiry are known then the Government will have something further to say about the handling of the matter. Ms Alvarez' focus now is on receiving care for her ailing health, and reconnecting with her family, including two sons whom she hasn't seen in more than four years. While the Federal Government is refusing to comment on potential compensation payouts for Vivian Alvarez, it will confirm all her medical costs will be covered,

along with any welfare payments she may be entitled to on her return to Australia.

But lawyers fear her tragic case could be just the first of many. It's a horrible thought but if this could happen to an Australian citizen, it opens the door to our imaginations as to what could happen to anybody. Deborah Knight, Ten News.

The Treasurer has admitted that workers earning up to $50,000 a year are struggling to make ends meet. The Opposition has pounced, demanding Mr Costello offer bigger tax cuts. Peter Costello took his Budget sell to a childcare centre. 80,000 new places are on offer and the littlies showed the Treasurer they knew their numbers too.

On radio it was how far his numbers could go that featured. RADIO ANNOUNCER: What do you call a low income? Well, um, average wages in this country I reckon you'd be struggling on $40,000 or $50,000. Labor says that's why it's proposing to amend the Budget tax cuts to give average earners a tax cut twice the size.

If Peter Costello really supports those struggling families

on $40,000 or $50,000, he will be supporting Labor's propositions. Kim Beazley says Labor is not blocking the tax cuts merely opposing the ones on offer. Seven million have been dudded like this.

It's just a chance that he may be shamed into it if we get the pressure up. As far as the Government's concerned that's a fat chance. The Treasurer firming up rejection of any changes

and ruling out being able to give the tax cuts in July without the Senate approval. Mr Costello only promising the Government-controlled Senate in August will deliver. I say to the Labor Party - let Australians have their tax cut and let them have it on July. Paul Bongiorno, Tn News. Former Australian rugby league great Mal Meninga has gone on trial on two assault charges

after a pub brawl. Meninga's lawyers say he was acting in self-defence, releasing graphic photographs to prove their case. Mal Meninga wasn't saying anything as he arrived at the ACT Supreme Court. REPORTER: How are you feeling this morning? Meninga has pleaded not guilty

to punching 42-year-old Grant Richard Hurley at a Canberra pub in 2003. Mr Hurley told the court

he was talking to Meninga about a football match when he says Meninga became aggressive. Mr Hurley, who admitted to drinking at least 12 schooners before hand, says Meninga caught up with him outside and punched him again, causing him to fall to the ground with a bloody nose and split lip. But the defence accused Mr Hurley of being a straight-out liar,

of being a straight-out liar, alleging it was Mr Hurley who started both fights. Meninga, they argue, acted in self defence. His counsel produced photographs of the night which Mr Hurley eventually agreed showed him crash-tackling Mal Meninga.

Defence counsel John Purnell was scathing: The defence is alleging

it is Mr Hurley who is of poor character, highlighting his previous drink-driving convictions and orders to attend drug and alcohol and anger management counselling. It has also made much of his previous conviction for assault where he bit part of a man's ear off during a fight. Mr Hurley also admitted to speaking with a Crown witness during a break in court proceedings. Leonie Mellor, Ten News. A remarkable survival story -

a Brisbane sailor keeping himself alive for 14 hours after falling overboard from an 80m tanker.

Rescue crews picked him up 20 nautical miles east of Bowen dressed in nothing but boxer shorts. Joseph Stinchcombe winched to safety suffering hypothermia, exhaustion and a suspected broken arm. I think it's got to be one of the world's most amazing escapes.

He was flown to the Townsville Base Hospital and is too weak at this stage to tell his amazing story of survival. A plan to repaint Sydney Ferries is under fire. with critics saying it fails to fix fundamental problems. he Government announced the paint job as a way of attracting customers back to the service. It's apparently the most pressing problem facing our 31-strong ferry fleet - what colour they should be.

Sydney Ferries believes that by returning to the traditional colours of green and white, green and cream, that brands this iconic service on Sydney harbour so as to increase its popularity.

It seems white and blue ferries are too confusing for the modern passenger, so by 2007 they'll all wear the same heritage colours. But even the announcement of a new paint job couldn't prevent two cancellations - one from Mosman, the other from Manly.

We apologise unreservedly. We don't believe that any cancellations are acceptable, The corporatised service points to on-time running figures above 98%, but critics say paint won't cover fundamental problems highlighted in Sydney Ferries' own reports. The number of major vessel incidents

Number of passenger injuries The number of minor vessel incidents has gone up in two years. The number of service cancellations has gone up.

And so have complaints, leading others to argue the service has a 1950s mentality to customer service. If you want to attract people onto public transport, you've got to make it efficient, you've got to make it economic and you've got to make it reliable, and they're not succeeding in that at the moment. The Government says no extra money will be spent on this plan. Each ferry will simply be repainted when its turn comes up

as part of its regular maintenance schedule. Despite ferries aged up to 25 years, there are no plans for new vessels at the moment.

The family and supporters of Australian hostage Douglas Wood are hoping for news today on the fate of the kidnapped 63-year-old engineer. There's been no word from his captors for more than a week. Sheik al-Hilali's mercy mission to Baghdad is showing signs of progress.

He's convinced Douglas Wood is still alive but in poor condition after his two week ordeal. I think Mr Wood is still alive, but he is sick. He says there's now no deadline set by the kidnappers and no ransom demand. The sheik hopes and believes freedom may be days away. I hope in a few days Mr Douglas can be free.

Iraqi TV has begun showing an ad on behalf of the Wood family trying to convince the kidnappers that Douglas Wood has nothing to do with the presence of Australian troops in Iraq and that he should be released. There are now reports Douglas Wood was betrayed by an interpreter assigned to him to help him in his work.

Elsewhere in Iraq, yet another kidnapping. This time two truck drivers captured while trying to deliver goods to American troops. And an ominous desecration at an Iraqi mosque.

Holy books defiled and crosses painted on the wall. Local Islamic leaders claiming American troops committed this vandalism and that it will lead to more violence. All the more reason for the top security that surrounded US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as she made a surprise visit to Baghdad. Greg Turnbull, Ten News. A fright for four people on board a private jet trying to land at an airfield in Atlantic City. Authorities are still trying to determine what forced the pilot to ditch in the water just short of the runway. Witnesses say the jet sounded to be having engine trouble before it lost height and hit the water.

The four people on the aircraft suffered only minor injuries. A massive wall of of fire is raging out of control after a volcanic eruption. Volcano Fernandina, the most active in the Galapagos Islands,

I'm not interested in poker machines or 'Days of our Lives', I like something concrete. The University of Queensland has designed a high-velocity workout for seniors which involves moving against a force as quickly as possible. Trialled over six months,

it's been found to help the over-65s with everyday tasks. For things like standing up from chairs, climbing stairs and even preventing falls. Many had never exercised before the trial. But tests have shown they've achieved a 45% improvement in body strength. The theory here is that you're never too old or too frail. Ken is 73 years old, and he's leg pressing 140kg.

Look out 5:55. We'll see you then. Coping with menopause is about to become a whole lot easier for more than a million middle-aged Australian women. A new form of hormone replacement therapy has hit the market, promising fewer side effects. Meet the new face of HRT - a super small oestrogen patch that could help ease the lives of more than a million Australian women.

These new ones are literally thumbnail sized. Just three years ago

the World Health Organization recommended women avoid HRT due to a concerning number of side effects. Now experts are hoping this little patch may begin to ease those fears. They say it's a lower dose of oestrogen and is safer than oral treatments. Oral therapy goes through the gut to the liver and the liver increases the production of proteins,

one of which may increase clotting factors. Estadot is worn on the abdomen and releases a small but constant amount of oestrogen straight into the blood supply. It's most suited for those who've had hysterectomies but can be used as a combination therapy for other women. If oestrogen is given without the other hormone progesterone, there's an increased risk of cancer of the womb and that's prevented by taking a proper dose of progesterone.

Like many medications these new patches do have side effects which may cause an increased risk of cancer or blood clots. Women are warned, especially those using it in the long term, But for 58-year-old Judy Ashcroft the benefits from this new HRT outweigh any risks. It's simple to use, I put it on twice a week and to date I've had no side effects

and it just helps me to live a normal life. Natarsha Belling, Ten News.

At last, no more daggy driving licence photos. When you get your next licence or renew an old one, you'll be staring straight down the barrel

at $1 million worth of technology that gives a perfect shot. The RTA says the new digital cameras in its 131 Motor Registry offices capture true-to-life skin tones and accurate hair colour. It's a plus for police as well - it'll be easier for them to match the person to the picture. The final episode of the hit sitcom 'Everybody Loves Raymond' goes to air in America tonight. And the stars have lined the red carpet to say goodbye.

Nine years and 210 episodes later, the sitcom family everybody loved to love, or loved to hate, is splitting up. Yeah, you know, it's a bittersweet feeling. Three months after recording the final episode,

the cast was reunited on the red carpet for a final goodbye and, just as timing was everything in making the show a success...

..timing was the number one reason for calling it quits.

Star and co-creator Ray Romano,

who turned his own family's trials and tribulations

into an award-winning comedy, says he's taken the laughs as far as he can and sometimes even further. I worry about the safety of a lot of husbands in this country, probably in Australia too, because women come up and say, "Oh, my husband's as big an idiot as Raymond," and I go, "OK..." Patricia Heaton is now working on her own spin-off sitcom. A mum of four boys in real life,

she believes the secret of the show was its real-life characters in almost real-life settings. But it's not the last the actors have seen of this set. Each cast member gets to keep one souvenir -

it's not surprising Ray Romano has chosen the couch. It's good that it's the couch because when it makes my wife so mad when I bring it in the house, I'll have a place to sleep on, at least. The final episode goes to air in Australia next month. Holy crap. In Los Angeles, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. Sport with Tim Webster, and the some big names miss out on Origin.

Yes - Queensland left out Wesser and Prince, the Blues, Anasta. More shortly. Plus, reaction from NSW debutants who join some Origin stalwarts. And rough and tumble from the French Grand Prix.

say goodnight to dry coughs... Both NSW and Queensland State of Origin selectors

have made surprise choices in their squads for Wednesday week's opening encounter. The Maroons have left out Rhys Wesser and Scott Prince, while the Blues have opted for Craig Wing on the bench, leaving out Braith Anasta. Matt King and Anthony Watmough will make their debuts while Knights forward Steve Simpson was the bolter. Storm utility Matt King is the only newcomer to don the Blues jersey in an otherwise tried and proven starting line-up. He's stunned by his selection, but will come back down to earth when he returns home to Melbourne.

Got a 6:00 flight back to Melbourne that'll put my feet back on the ground. No-one knows anything about Origin or league down there, so it's a blessing in disguise. You get right away from footy, which is a bonus. Manly's Anthony Watmough too will wear the Blues jersey for the first time, coming off the bench for the in-form Eagle. It's a dream come true. It is the ultimate, the toughest game in the world, so to play against one of the toughest sides in the world is an honour. The shock selection was the Knights' Steve Simpson who wasn't in the original 30-man preliminary squad. As a result, he didn't rate himself any chance of being picked. My fiancee's father rang me up and said I was in, heard it on the radio. I said, "You're joking, aren't you?" I said, "I'm not even part of the 30."

NSW have opted for a mobile bench without a specialist prop, suggesting the game plan will be speed serious vs Queensland size. Queensland have left out Rhys Wesser

The players picked on the bench are

extremely fit and strong players. Queensland have left out Rhys Wesser and last year's Origin series star Scott Prince. The Cowboys' Johnathan Thurston has pinched the number 7 jersey. has pinched the number 7 jersey. Billy Slater shifts from wing to full-back, with Ty Williams making his debut on the wing at Rhys Wesser's expense. Tony Peters, Ten News. Rabbitohs' winger Luke MacDougall is facing a suspension of up to seven weeks for a dangerous throw. The incident in Saturday's loss to the Storm incurs a minimum ban of five weeks for an early guilty plea.

Team-mate Ashley Harrison is the first player

charged with unnecessary contact with the head or neck in the crackdown on grapple tackles. Harrison is looking at one week for that offence, and another match for a dangerous throw. Canberra's Simon Woolford could cop two more weeks for another high tackle. The New South Wales Waratahs are preparing for their Super 12 semifinal against the Bulls this Saturday. Despite the added pressure of semi-final week, it was business as usual for the Tahs today.

A win would set up a final against either the Crusaders or the Hurricanes. Leo Barry will be the Swans' captain for this week's match against the Western Bulldogs as Sydney make their first rotation of the skipper's job. A highlight of the match certain to be the clash of the coaches. Paul Roos will do battle with his former mentor Rodney Eade. He'll be making his return to the SCG

for the first time as an opposition coach.

The Swans are also likely to welcome back ruckman Jason Ball for the vital match, hoping he's recovered from a hamstring injury. Motorcycle ace Valentino Rossi has extended his MotoGP world championship lead with victory at the French Grand Prix. No luck at the start of the race for Loris Capirossi, who tangled with Carlos Chechnya, neither rider seriously injured, though. Rossi taking the lead from rival Sete Giberneau with seven laps to go. COMMENTATOR: Another victory to Valentino Rossi!

Rossi's third win, in fact, from four starts this season. The Italian joined on the podium by Gibernau and Colin Edwards. Drama in the 250cc race - German rider Steve Yenkner struck in the shoulder by another bike. Australian Casey Stoner finished fourth behind race winner Daniel Pedrosa. The English Premier League has come to a dramatic finish with West Bromwich Albion avoiding relegation with a 2-nil win against Portsmouth. After starting the day rock bottom,

West Brom's fans spent much of the day

listening to results from the three other matches which affected their fate.

Even though they won 2-0 it wasn't until the news came through that Southampton, Norwich and Crystal Palace had failed to win that the celebrations began. CROWD CHEERS Scenes of despair elsewhere - Crystal Palace were staying up when they lead Charlton 2-1 before conceeding a goal with eight minutes to go. Southampton were also going to survive when they lead Manchester United before going down 2-1. Later on Sports Tonight with Ryan Phelan - referees boss Robert Finch talks about the crackdown on players abusing officials and the behind the scenes mental magician who helped turn around St George-Illawarra's season.

And he said, "I'll just have two $5 Scratchies, mate." He was excited, of course. God, it's like a dream!
